The charger for my camera has gone walk-about again. Somehow I didn't unpack after last year's vacation and thought it lost. Then it turned up just in time for this year's vacation on a shelf in one of our rooms - definately not a place I put but who cares... Now we're in the middle of the vacation, I'm sure I packed the charger, but I can't find it anywhere and the camera was in need of some juice.
So I got thinking - other than buying a new one, which seemed pointless as I'm sure it'll turn up again, or trying to borrow one, which was unsuccessful, what could I do?
The puzzle had two pieces.
First piece: When I talk on my cell phone I always hold it in my left hand, and I've noticed how it becomes overly hot and decharges much more quickly than usual. I'm right-handed so left side draws in and right side gives. I figure I'm pulling the energy from the phone battery through the chakra in my palm when I hold it.
Second piece: Back when I took my reiki master degree, my instructor told me how - to her surprise - she realized that her cell phone was charging while she held it though it was not connected to an outlet.
Result: Attempt to charge the camera by holding it in my right hand palm. It works :-)Update:
I thought it worked. It doesn't :-( But that doesn't mean it can't. Maybe if I hold the camera between my palms and have them work as a capacitator...

The text below is copy/paste from Dick Suphen's (www.dicksutphen.com) newletter. It is not I who is speaking, but Dick Sutphen:
The following questions are part of a process I
have used on occasion in seminars after the participants have an
understanding of the key ideas I teach. But I figure if you have
subscribed to this column for very long, you have that background.
Ideally, I would put you into an altered state of consciousness before
asking you the questions. Instead, you’ll have to breathe deeply, get
quiet and trust the first thoughts that pop into your mind in response
to each question.
1. Pick a problem in your life involving another person and clearly define it.
2. Have you acknowledged the problem as a reality that needs to
be dealt with, or are you ignoring it, hoping it will go away or resolve
3. Can you accept that on a karmic level, you are responsible
for the problem? Yes or no? (You set up the problem as an opportunity to
learn a needed lesson.)
4. Is there any kind of payoff in keeping the problem? By that I
mean, are you somehow served in other ways by allowing the problem to
continue? Yes or no? (As an example, dealing with the problem might
complicate your life or cause you emotional pain.)
5. Do you sincerely desire to resolve this problem? Yes or no?
6. Do you need more information before you can act to resolve
the problem? If so, how do you obtain the knowledge you require?
7. Can you reframe the situation? Don’t look at it as conflict
between competing solutions. Instead, define it in terms of conflicting
needs. What are your needs? What are the other person’s needs?
8. The only way to solve a problem involving others is to make
it a win-win situation. Be creative. How can both of your needs be
9. Are you assuming there are only a couple of solutions? If so,
you’re arguing for your limitations. There are probably numerous ways
to achieve the results you desire. Ask yourself the right questions.
Forget about what other people think ... what society thinks. How else
could you handle the situation?
10. Assuming you have various options to handle your problem, what are the prices and potential rewards of each option?
11. Are you willing to pay the price?
12. What do you really want to do? Not what is the best option,
or the most realistic or sensible decision, but what do you really want
13. What does that communicate to you?
14. You are creating your own reality with every thought that
flows through your mind. Everything you think, say and do creates karma
... and that includes the motive, intent and desire behind everything
you think, say and do. Knowing this, how are you going to handle the
15. Take a few moments to visualize the situation as resolved, and experience how you feel about it.

"On the upside, Sun is conjunct Venus, which may help to soften the
harsh energies of the Grand Cardinal Cross. Mercury is retrograde, which
impels us all to focus on our inner life. If your month has been like
mine, then a little moment for meditation or contemplation would be most
Even better news is that the Saturn-Uranus-Pluto T-Square that
has been active the last few years will be de-activated after the month
of August, and we should have nearly a year of relief from the extremely
challenging outer planet aspects that comprise the Cardinal Cross, the
Cardinal T-Square and the various oppositions and squares that it
generates over a long period of time."
Quote from Clarifying the Timeline of Change: 2012 and Beyond! by astrologer Bill Herbst:
"My take on the astrology of 2012 and beyond (basically, through the symbolism
and history of the Uranus-Pluto first-quarter square) is that this entire decade
be marked by an unfolding series of sporadic but ever-more-frequent
shocks," Herbst contends. "The collective breakdowns/awakenings/cosmic
cattle prods/whatever will most likely unfold in increments. Each new development in the accelerating cascade of collapse/breakdown events will cause a small percentage of former sleepers to
be jolted awake. No single event or time period in the years ahead is likely to do
more than that. Though the pace of change does accelerate, the overview is still
little by little rather than all at once."
"My private expectation is that we probably can’t look for any real or effective
responses at the collective level to the accelerating cascade of crises until the
last four years of the decade---2016 at the earliest," Bill argues.

Below is part of a Dick Suthen column. The whole piece can be found here: http://www.dicksutphen.com/webcol/w-webcoly122.html
The positive or negative qualities you
react to in others are a reflection of the same qualities within you.
Other people are a mirror for you to see yourself. The mirror has four
primary manifestations: 1. That which you admire in others you recognize
within yourself; 2. That which you resist and react to strongly in
others is sure to be found within yourself; 3. That which you resist and
react to in others is something you are afraid exists within you; and
4. That which you resist in yourself, you will dislike in others.
You have reincarnated to learn to rise above the effects of
fear. And your fears will always be reflected in your reactions to
others. Thus your goals are very obvious once you are able to perceive
The next time an opportunity arises, examine your reactions to
others by searching yourself for the corresponding traits. If your
reaction is negative, it is rooted in a fear that needs to be resolved.
See the people you dislike as mirrors instead of adversaries.

This is the link I got it from:www.imzaia.com
This is the channelling:
Greetings dear ones, I am Kryon of Magnetic service. There is much
fear in the air at this time, and I wish to give you this message of
hope. In January I told you that the numerology of this year was a four
(4). This is the GAIA number… all things dealing with the earth. I also
reminded you that the weight of the water is being redistributed from
the ice on the polar caps to the oceans as the ice continues to melt.
This would result in more earthquakes and volcanoes. Here is also a
quotation from that channeling:
“Now we say it again. This is not punishment to humanity. The
things that are happening on the planet today are not meant as the final
step of Gaia in order to kill the civilization of humanity. I say this,
for right now this message is on the lips of those who want to startle
and scare you and give you fear, that is not what's happening. What is
happening on this planet is a shift that will create a planet that's
going to last a long time, allowing you what you need …”
(From Boulder channelling)
Now, suddenly the month of the three (March) it is upon you. The
three represents the catalyst. A catalyst is something that occurs,
which can changes something else. Anyone dealing in numerology would
have expected Gaia to move in this month, as well as the month of the 5
(May) coming later.
Those in the sweet country [Japan] who received this disaster are not
the target of God. They simply sit in a place that has always been ripe
with GAIA change and are volcanic and earthquake sensitive. Just like
their counterparts in South America, this is where they chose to live.
The compassion generated by this event is considerable, and I have also
channeled recently that it is compassion that creates significant change
on the planet, and you are starting to see it.
1. Let us take a moment to also remind you that Spirit does not
know when these events are coming any more than you do. All we have is
the potentials based on Human consciousness and the energetic signs
around them. We knew that the South American earthquake was coming soon,
and told those in Chile one year before the event. The Japan earthquake
was similar, in that the potentials were there, and also the
numerology. But details are absolutely not known by Spirit in these
things, and it could have been years before it happened in this way, or
not at all. This is because we have given Humanity the tool of
consciousness over matter. Your shift determines everything.
Dear ones, send energy of compassion to those on this island nation,
and give them the strength and resolve to bring forward a greater nation
due to this. Help unite them in love and family as they cope with the
loss and the separation. “BE” their family in this time.
Be aware that each one who passed over in these last few days
absolutely knew at the Akashic level that there was a potential they
would not last past 2011. We have spoken of this many times before. At
the wind of birth, potentials are known about what the Humans might do
on the earth. This is not fortune telling, but rather potential
measuring. Since this was the strongest potential, these beautiful
aspects of God [Humans] came into this planet anyway as spiritual
family, ready to participate in one of the largest disaster events of
your decade. They knew it would change much, and it will.
Celebrate their lives and know that they are ALL home. Now, send
energy to those left behind that they might find peace in the fact that
those who were lost did something amazing for the planet. They increased
the compassion level of the crystalline grid. They have done their
part, and left you to do yours.
2. Are you now aware of what I have been telling you for more
than ten years about the alternate ways of creating electricity? This
single event will shut down your nuclear programs for years. So now is
the time to review what we have said:
Spirit does not judge humanity. Humans are free to do whatever they
choose based on the consciousness that is developed by their own
vibrations. For years, however, we have told you of very viable
alternative ways to create power for all your cities. We have done it
over and over, and you can find these channellings all through my work.
Now perhaps you know why we have concentrated on this issue, for this
one earthquake shows you the danger you face world-wide by continuing on
the nuclear path. Listen: You do NOT need this technology any longer.
It will not serve you well.
Nuclear power is a very expensive and dangerous way to create a steam
engine. That’s all a nuclear plant is… a way to create steam. Again we
tell you that you can use the funds that would create one nuclear power
plant to research far better ways to make electricity that are not
dangerous and have almost no environmental impact.
A. Geo thermal energy: Heat is underneath your feet in abundance.
You can create as much steam as you want forever. Remember, there are
some new exotic fluids that will boil far faster than water, so the heat
does not have to be what you think. If this disaster had occurred at a
geo thermal plant, the worst it would have done would have ruined it.
Then you build another.
B. Thousands of tons of push pull energy per hour, on a constant
fixed time line [the tides] are available on your coast lines. This
island nation is perfect for tide and wave generated power. Again, the
worst thing that would have happened to these plants would have been the
necessity to rebuild them. No danger to those living around them.
Are you going to take this world-changing event to finally see these
options as real, and viable? The nuclear disaster was created for you to
stop and change direction. Only time will tell if it was worth it. But
quite often disaster must occur before Humanity sees what has always
been before them… the promise of something better.
The largest cities on earth sit on the ocean, perfect for this power
generated option. But it has not been seen this way, nor are the
potentials being realized. Think large! Take the finest minds and create
new scenarios to harness what GAIA has given you… the power of the
tides and oceans forever, right where you need it the most.
The time is upon you to create the next step…
Given in love… always,

The March Forecast with the theme of GET READY
is up on the website.
And this is a bit funny because after
I wrote about pushing the button below I read this part of the forecast:
"The image is that of anticipating a battle or a long winter or an
extreme adventure or a huge move or any large event or permanent
change. All of these require preparation, discipline, focus, a good
plan, fortification, a serious commitment to your goal and hard work.
You better know what you want and be willing to work hard for it. You
better be disciplined about protecting yourself against the
distractions of unimportant things and energy leaks that could derail

Below is a quote from a new article by José Stevens of Power Path Inc. addresing the situation in Egypt, http://thepowerpath.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=322:new-article-by-jose-stevens&catid=22:article-library
The quote is the last part of that article:
"What is probable for the immediate future
Think shocking and
sudden change and this will give you a sense of what is coming. Shocking
and sudden does not have to be negative but it does mean resistance to
change is futile and you will have to learn to adapt quickly. The
revolutionary spirit is alive and well and never before have we seen
such fertile ground for its success. Therefore it is probable that not
only will the Middle East erupt this or next year, many other parts of
the world are ripe for radical change as well. South America still has
potential for major upheaval, especially Venezuela, and much of Africa
is up for grabs. The United States may see attempts to dismantle the
Union and break up the nation state. Certainly there are factions that
would like to radically change the constitution along the lines of their
own ideology. These factions are deadly serious and could pose a
serious threat to the status quo. When a black man became president many
decided that the country they once knew was finished and they hold no
loyalty to the nation anymore.
At the same time there are those
who are tired of seeing the nations politicians sold to the highest
bidder, in essence owned by the corporations. Expect serious pushback
coming from those wishing to fight corruption on every level. Yes, the
United States will not simply be an observer on the world stage but may
very well experience its own difficult upheavals, threatening its
sovereignty. In a way it is 1776 all over again but this time with
The world will be a construction zone complete
with swirling dust, noise, debris, hard hats, and heavy equipment. At
times it will look chaotic and ugly with little hope of redemption. The
old buildings will be falling to the wrecking ball and gradually new
edifices will rise revealing a new presentation for all to see. In the
process perhaps many will sacrifice their lives and many others will
fall victim to drought, flooding, food disruption, lack of clean water,
earthquakes, and other natural disasters. Remember nature always mirrors
what is going on for humans on an emotional level. In a way, change has
always been part of human history and the longer you have been on this
planet the better you will be at riding out the turbulence while
contributing to a new vision of what can be. Spend your precious moments
enjoying your essence and focusing on a world that you would love to
manifest. Be grateful for all that is and for the very good fortune of
having been created to create.

LinksPosted by Karin Kristensen Feb 02, 2011 10:00AM
New Moon is Tuesday, February 2 at 7:32 PM Mountain Time.
Commit to your own eccentricity. Commit to your own personal healing of whatever needs to be healed. You do not need to know how or even what. A total commitment is enough to get the quantum field mobilizing in that direction. There is a wonderful opportunity at this new moon to heal disappointments of the past. Make a list of all of your disappointed expectations and commit to their release and to your healing. Commit to staying out of fear. Commit to moving forward. Commit to what's important. Commit to yourself.
Note: This is also Chinese New Year Day, the Year of the Metal Rabbit. Rabbits are fertile, resourceful survivors. The metal aspect makes them aggressively so.

A little while back I was in the process of putting together some beads for a bracelet for a friend. The image suddenly came to me that I was creating a chakra bracelet.
I work with beads and gems but I do not spend much time finding out about their properties. So I had no idea if the beads I was using were connected to the chakras. Instead I sent the information to my colleague, Bradford Tilden of Crystal Music Healing. I was pretty surprised when I got this info back: ""It doesn't seem to treat the individual chakras, but rather exhude a general energy of a very sophisticated nature for the whole chakra system."
I was very surprised to find that I had been the tool for putting this together. It would have seemed more natural to me if it had come through one of my crystal geek friends. But here we are, and the combination is definately powerfull and I have now listed it on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=28459833

March 13, 2009
Welcome to the Decade of Global Transformation and the New American Evolution
by Curtis Lang
Welcome to the March Spring 2009 Global News Flash edition of the Satya Center newsletter and warm greetings from your Editor, Curtis Lang.
As you may know, although Jane and I spend full time running Satya Center, teaching Reiki, giving Reiki sessions, counseling as InterFaith Ministers, and writing about spiritual matters, I have over thirty years experience as a financial writer and editor and investigative journalist at The Village Voice, WORTH Magazine, and Ameritrade, where I was editor of the OnMoney.com financial portal.
I was one of the first to predict the depth and scope of the S&L Crisis in 1987 in The Texas Observer, and wrote many articles investigating the fraud and abuse in that industry.
In this newsletter, using research compiled over the last two years from honest and reliable financial experts, environmentalists, independent journalists and famous astrologers, I will give you a bird’s eye view of the current global financial crisis, provide you with a clear outline of its scope, depth and probable duration, and together we will take a look at the BIG picture – the cultural, political, economic, social and environmental changes set to totally transform human civilization during the next decade.
I maintain a steady focus on the financial, social, environmental, political and astrological factors that are most likely to shape America’s next decade. All point toward a massive awakening, a political confrontation, and a revolutionary change in the entire American way of life.
I recommend some major reforms of the current banking bailout, including a call for financial democracy and for public ownership and public control of the current Federal Reserve System, which is unduly influenced by private banks for their own profit and to the detriment of the public interest.

I found an article the other day about a new San Francisco company - TCHO. They make chocolate and I do mean "make" since they are in touch with the whole process including growing the cocoa beans in Peru.
I find it interesting and typical of our time that two big time Yupies turn from big turnover to a business project that is deeply personal.
What we see happening in our world is not so much the complete downfall of business, more a very significant change in how we work and what we want to spend our money on.
A friend just provided me with a sample of a handmade face lotion. The lotion is made from scratch with only herbs. I swear that when holding it in my hand, comparing with a normal commercial product, this new lotion feels like a "happy" lotion and my old one feels sad. I guess it is a by-product of having become almost overly energy sensitive, but what I can put into words everybody else feels too, only at a non-verbal level.

There is a truly beautiful project going on in Jerusalem. They call themselves Jerusalem Peacemakers and it is the meeting of Jews, Christians and Muslims. I have chosen to copy their entire newsletter below. I have met the two people behind the project in person. Would that there were more like them!
Hello friends and supporters,
While most news you receive from the Holy Land in the aftermath of the Gaza war is awful, the peacemakers continue their work, invisible to the eyes of the world. This has been a difficult time, the gap of mistrust and anger between the Israelis and Palestinians is as wide as ever. In the face of all of this though, we have deepened our commitment to work for peace. As Elias Jabbour, director of the House of Hope puts it, "its up to us to keep the torch of hope alive, we have no other other choice."
Take the time to read this update about the sacred work of our family of peacebuilders, hope you will be inspired.
ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIANS GATHER FOR SOLIDARITY AND CELEBRATION AT THE DEAD SEA, January 30-31
Eighty Palestinians and Israelis came together for the Gathering of Light and Unity on Metzukei Dragot beach, an oasis of beautiful fresh and saltwater pools on the Dead Sea shore. This area is easily accessible for both Israelis and Palestinians who came from across the West Bank without the need for travel permits. For two days we shared meals, music and dance, prayers and speaking from the heart together. This gathering, organized by Ilana Meallem, brought together many people yearning to connect as a family of human beings in light of all thats happened recently.
HEALING ABRAHAM'S FAMILY PRAYER AND HOSPITAL VISIT, AT TEL HASHOMER HOSPITAL, TEL AVIV, January 26
Forty people came together as Jerusalem Peacemakers joined with Rabbis for Human Rights to organize a prayer gathering at Tel Hashomer hospital in Tel Aviv. This event was advertised in Israeli media: "Muslim, Jewish and Christian Religious Leaders Raise Their Voices Together for: A Cry of Mourning; Affirmation of Responsibility to work for Reconciliation, Human Rights and Peace, a Future of Hope and Healing of the Wounds between our People". We read traditional prayers for mourning of the dead in the Jewish, Christian and Muslim traditions and offered personal prayers followed by a group prayer for peace in Hebrew and Arabic. We then split up, some going to visit a wounded Israeli soldier and many others visiting Izzedin Abuelish and his daughter, the Gaza doctor whose 3 daughters were killed in the Gaza violence, with a fourth daughter being treated in Tel Hashomer hospital. Read more about our event in this LA Times article: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/babylonbeyond/2009/01/israel-interfai.html
JERUSALEM PEACEMAKERS WEST JERUSALEM CENTER HOSTS TALKS AND PEACE GATHERINGS
At our West Jerusalem peace center recently, we hosted study sessions with Rabbi Marc Gopin on 'The Source of Peace' and a text study session with Rabbi Daniel Roth from the Pardes Institiute. On December 22nd we hosted an inter-religious Hannukah peace celebration with over 50 Israelis and Palestinians joining for dialogue, music and prayer.
THIRD WORLD CONGRESS OF IMAMS AND RABBIS FOR PEACE IN PARIS, FRANCE, December 15-17
We joined the Third World Congress of Imams and Rabbis for Peace in Paris, organized by Hommes de Parole. One hundred Imams and Rabbis came from all over the world to bring the voice of Judaism and Islam to build a bridges of dialogue and help solve conflicts motivated by religion in the Middle East, Europe and the world. Leaders included Sheikh Abdallah Nimr Darwish, founder of the Islamic movement in Israel and Rabbi Avraham Yosef, son of Sephardic rabbinic authority Ovadiah Yosef. There were plenary sessions, a visit to a Paris peace monument and a mosque and synagogue. Politics tended to divide us, the evenings of sharing in the music of Andalucia, the mutual Jewish and Islamic heritage, brought us together.

SHEIKH BUKHARI HELPS FAMILIES IN GAZA REBUILD THEIR LIVES
Sheikh Abdul Aziz Bukhari has a wide family and community network in Gaza. His wife is from Gaza, his sister and his daughter are both married and live in Gaza.

RABBI MENACHEM FROMAN CONTINUES HIS WORK FOR A CEASE FIRE AND DIALOGUE WITH HAMAS
Throughout the Gaza war, Rabbi Menachem Froman was working on efforts to bring about a cease fire between Israel and Hamas. Please read this article about his call for for dialogue with Hamas, and a new chance for peace in the wake of the recent war:

IBTISAM MAHAMID CONTINUES HER PEACEMAKING WORK
Ibtisam Mahamid is building a new peace center, the Tent of Hagar and Sarah in her town of Faradis in northern Israel. She initiated a project to train and empower Muslim Arab women. These women formed a women's council and got their chosen candidate elected mayor of Faradis. During the Gaza war, Ibtisam spent hours visiting wounded children from Gaza in Israeli hospitals and joined a delegation to visit the Israeli town of Sderot. Ibtisam was chosen to receive an award, "Unsung Heroes of Compassion", by the Dalai Lama in San Francisco in April.
A message from Ibtisam: "We are the children of Abraham, family. Every day I light a candle in my heart-- no anger, no hatred. We want peace, we will take peace by the hands, for the sake of our grandchildren. As a peace activist, I give compassion to myself and to the world... if you dont have inner quiet and peace in your heart, you cant give it to the world."
A MESSAGE FROM IBRAHIM ABUELHAWA
We are asking God to stop the war and fighting especially in the Holy Land between the seeds of Abraham. We have to go back to God, and to study the word of God, which it is that we are all one, and we have to love one another, and especially to love our neighbors as our brothers and ourself. Thats the key for everything between the children of Abraham. Is really been hard and tough time with everyone in this land, and we wish everyone to be healthy and safe in his own home.
We are doing all this work with almost no budget. Please make a contribution, small or large, to support the work of the Jerusalem Peacemakers. We count on your support, in its different forms-- prayer and financial support --to empower us to continue this work in the Holy Land.

I am a great fan of Stuart Wilde. Some call him a New Age guru. I call him the funniest and most controversial spiritual author around.
He just started a blog: http://www.stuartwildeblog.com/

One of my all time favorite sources of information beyond the 3 dimensions is that of Crimson Circle (www.crimsoncircle.com).
Once a month Geoffrey Hoppe channels Tobias - an angelic being. To "channel" means that Geoffrey in a trance passes on messages from higher beings, mainly Tobias but also Saint Germain and Kuthumi (highly evolved energies called Ascended Masters).
What is important that the energy channelled comes not really from the high entities but is in fact the sum of knowledge and concerns of all who feel connected to this material.
To introduce you to this material I recommend the document "A Letter to Awakening Humans": http://www.crimsoncircle.com/documents/LettertoAwakeningHumans.pdf
The latest shoud/lesson is always available on their library page: http://www.crimsoncircle.com/Default.aspx?alias=www.crimsoncircle.com/ChannelLibrary.
To read old shouds you need to register. It is for free.

I found this very insteresting analysis of Obama's acceptance speach. The speach has been run through a tool called Word Cloud. Looking at it graphically you will see what words Obama used the most. Obama's speach is compared to the acceptance speach of several other precidents: http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/tag_clouds_of_obamas_inaugural_speech_compared_to_bushs.php
I also like this blog posting very much:
The head line is "7 Online Things To Do To Help Obama Restore America" because the writer is correct. YOU have to do the work too - and we are not just here to help Obama restore America. We are here to help ourselves restore our world.

Frankly, I didn't dare get involved. I was too afraid that he would die before he reached office. But he is here now, Obama. Who would have believed it? Who can believe the promise that this change holds?
See and here the speach: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjnygQ02aW4. I almost cried...
And here is an interesting analysis of the speach: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/01/20/MN8T15DPI8.DTL&type=politics&tsp=1

I find Satya Center, www.satyacenter.com, a great source of information. It is run by Curtis Lang who was a financial journalist for about 30 years and now has turned spiritual.
The articles coming from Curtis center are probably left wing compared to American standards but truth is being told ahead of time that is only barely being seen by the regular medias.
Here is a small selection of links. I encourage you to explore further.

Do you know about www.kiva.org? Or www.myc4.com?
They are websites for microbanking. The "inventors" of microbanking recieved the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006. I believe it was well deserved.
Here is some explanation: Microbanking means that individuals in under developed countries can apply for a small loan to help them help themselves. It could be a mother needing a small loan to buy 5 more goats. Or a husband wanting to expand his shop to include two more kinds of rice. Or a wife wanted to add 3 male hair products and 6 new lipstick colours to her beauty shop.
Through a local bank contact a request is made for a small loan, maybe $500, to be payed back over max. 12 months. The request for this loan is then posted on a website like the two above and private people (or businesses) can then invest maybe $25. When enough people have invested in the project, funds have been met, the person applying for the loan gets the money, and pay back starts.
This means that you can personally decide who you want to support, and it is not a hand-out! It is a loan. You don't take away people's pride. You support them being industrious and want to make a better life.
www.kiva.org is the most wellknown site. They have been around for several years and have a very long list of publicity. They have projects running in many countries. The minimum amount you can loan to a project is $25.
www.myc4.org is actually run by a group of Danes, though all is conducted in English. Their contacts are in Africa so they support only projects in Africa at present. What I really like about this site is that you can charge an interest. You actually decide the interest rate yourself and the person applying for the loan can decide whether to accept your contribution or not at the rate you offer. The minimum amount you can loan to a project is €5.
If you don't know what to get your friends for their birthdays you might want to consider a gift certificate. The great thing is that your friends will eventually get their money - if they choose to withdraw them rather than reinvest - but along the way they could learn a lot about what life looks like in other countries and lend a hand at the same time.

One of my favorite rescources is the website of Karen Bishop.
Her website, Emerging Earth Angels (formerly What's up on Planet Earth) always provides me with very accurate information about why I feel just like feel at the present moment - and why there really isn't anything wrong with me :-)
As a service of my blog I will post the link to her reports when they are out:
