Cada árbol y cada planta del prado
parece estar danzando;
aquéllos con ojos comunes
sólo los verán fijos e inmóviles.

Ann Albers ~ Live In The Moment

My dear friends, we love you so very much.

Your earth is abuzz with anticipation. She is growing too, getting ready for change, and she loves you very much. Understand when she goes through transitions so do many souls who are ready for the next phase of their journey. So when you see events on the news, instead of saying, "Oh my goodness, this is horrible, what is this world coming to," know that although we understand change is extremely challenging for those left behind, there is a great celebration in the heavens as we welcome home the souls who have graduated from their lifetimes here upon your planet earth. So although this is not coming immediately, dear ones, can you ready yourselves for change - not by worrying and falling into fear, but rather by trusting God, knowing that all is in right order, and that everyone upon your planet will be exactly where they should be at the time.

The best way to ready yourself for change is to live in the moment, for that is where God's guidance and the whispers of your angels are heard most clearly. If you live in fear of the future - be it fear of an earth change, fear of the stock market, fear of losing your job, your spouse, or your house, then dear ones you miss the moment! You miss the guidance that can help you prevent such circumstances and you unconsciously begin to seek out the very path that you fear.

Can you change your fear to excitement? For in reality, they are one in the same, just opposite sides of the very same coin. Suppose you fear you will lose your job. Instead, can you say, "Oh I'm so excited! There are changes on the horizon and I feel them. I trust I will end up perfectly where I am supposed to be and since God love me so much, I don't have to worry! If I am supposed to look for a new job, I will have the urge, and if is not necessary, I needn't do a thing." Suppose you live in fear that something terrible will happen to those you love. Can you say instead, "I am so excited. I am discovering how deeply I love these people, how much I want them protected, and kept from harm and although I know if they have lessons I cannot interfere, God hear how much I love them and let my love surround them with the light of your protection. I'm so happy to know you are listening God. I trust if they must grow through pain you will give me the strength to love them through it." Suppose you fear for your finances. Rather than focusing on the absolute worst that might happen, can you say, "I'm so excited God! I know you love me and will take care of me and guide me how to handle these finances. I know all my needs are met if not naturally then supernaturally because you love me. I will do what I know to do, and walk in faith that the rest is handled."

Dear ones, do not fall into fear. Do not take actions based in fear. Instead take actions based on love, feelings of guidance, enthusiasm, excitement, or quiet calm. In this fashion, by focusing on faith, rather than fear, you will be guided safely to the shores of love.

God bless you! We love you so very much.

Wanderer of the Skies - March 14, 2012

Greetings from the Federation:

What more can be said about all that is transpiring on your planet today. We have told you about these coming events and how they will come rapidly and in succession. You are only now beginning to see the domino effect of all that will happen.

Shortly, leaders of many nations will meet secretly to discuss again the topic of disclosure which has been shelved in the recent past to attend to other issues and events considered more pressing by these individuals and their national interests. Now, however, disclosure again is on the “front burner” and will be discussed more aggressively among these participants. We, however, do not consider that their actions will amount to any change, as we have seen them “drag their feet” in the past. Several matters of concern have brought them to the table once again.

One of these matters is the discovery of anomalies in and around the sun which cannot be explained by your scientists. It is believed in the halls of power that this is a direct sign of the intervention of the Federation in earthly affairs on a more direct basis so the topic has come again to the forefront.

Another issue that has arisen is the direct contact made by the Federation with third world countries which has caused great concern with the Illuminati. They see this as a major shift in the power balance, and combined with their loss of position and strength in the financial markets, and the gathering storm of a highly organized and powerful opposition to them from across the globe, they are panicking in their otherwise methodical approach to set into play their “end game” to create their world government.

You have much to look forward to in these coming days as more and more dominoes fall at a much greater and accelerating pace. Already, you are beginning to see the turn of fortune occurring on the financial front. This will be followed quickly by the media, where many will begin to pay from their crimes and many more will turn towards open, honest, and investigative reporting. This, in turn, will be followed by a move to “clean house” with your political leaders and the stepping forward of those who consciously have begun to awaken within the halls of power in your many governments to set straight their role as stewards of society.

This is a time where justice will be heard and hopelessness cast aside. You are becoming, and it is a sight to behold. We watch in utter amazement at this process, and cannot contain our own excitement of what is coming to all and for the benefit of the entire universe.

A more definitive proof of our existence to you is in the works and more on this will be revealed in the coming weeks. You can, of course, expect ever increasing sightings from around the globe. We have, of late, concentrated on specific third world countries as part of the plan we have of direct communication with those regions. Now, however, we bring our focus back to those countries that can make a difference in the disclosure process. Expect that tremendous and awe inspiring displays will now occur with ever increasing frequency.

We are with you more than ever in these most exciting of times. This is what you have lived lifetimes for, what you have planned for down to the minutest detail, and what you are now experiencing. It is your right and deservedly so. We are with you in love, in respect, and in awe of your incredible abilities.

Be at peace.

SaLuSa, March 14, 2012

The dark Ones are having to bow down to the pressure being applied on them by you. They never considered that you could exercise such power that they would be prevented from achieving their goals. Because of the emerging consciousness levels that are continually reaching new heights, they do not have the energies to draw upon that are needed to be successful. Their secrets are out, and at every turn they are confronted by challenges to their authority. They see their bases destroyed, and weaponry also destroyed or removed to prevent the fulfillment of their plans. They are in disarray but still fail to understand or accept that their days are over. However, we shall confront them at every turn to ensure that they are prevented from causing a major incident. We know all about their false flag operations, and they shall answer for their treasonous attempts to stage another World War. We state again, that war will not be allowed, and have asked the Illuminati to put a stop to attempts to create one. The New Age is birthing itself right now, and its progress will not be stalled or halted by any outside interference.

Therefore Dear Ones you have no reason to be fearful whatever you hear about plans to cause delays, and they would be best ignored as it is we the Galactic Federation who are in charge. Neither you or us have come all of this way to be foiled or disappointed, and as we have often proclaimed victory is ours. The round up of the dark Ones has begun and they will be placed where they can no longer interfere with your evolution. The Laws of the Universe are quite clear and irrevocable, and both the dark and Light must obey them. The one that has been considerably used is the Law of Attraction, although for a large part of your lives you have not understood the implications of your actions. The dark Ones have understood it, and taken advantage of your ignorance by empowering themselves at your expense. However, as you have taken the Light unto yourselves, you have attracted even more to the Earth and it has turned the tables in your favor.

It is a fact that in the end the Light will always win battles with the dark, even if they make momentary gains. What bigger prize is there other than your Ascension, which you have come a long way to claim. At times you have cried out to God believing that you had been deserted, when in fact you created your own separation. You blamed God for the death and destruction, yet it was Man who went to war out of greed and lust for his neighbors possessions. It has taken a long time to see how pointless it has all been, and truthfully there are no winners and all are losers. At last you are quite rightly demanding an end to war, and that call has been answered by God. It is now decreed by God that war is ended, and our place is to ensure that it is so.

That elusive peace you sought for eons of time is soon to be yours, and all forms of aggression will also be denied to those who would ignore the Divine Decree. Those souls who still harbor thoughts of this kind, will find that their vibrations are such that they will not be allowed to enter the higher vibrations of the ascended. It is no place for anything other than the Light and Love that exists in the higher dimensions. if you have the intent to ascend, make sure you are clearing the baggage that you have brought with you. Any word, action or deed that is on a lower vibration will feel out of place, so you should be able to gradually remove them from your normal interaction with others. Be to others as you would wish to be done to yourself, and you will create peace and harmony around you.

As you are noticing time is speeding up faster than ever, and a week seems a mere few days, and each week is filled with such a great potential that will change your lives. The media is still restrained and little of what is really happening reaches your eyes or ears. However, we are successfully working towards an open free Press, and once the restrictions are lifted you will be overwhelmed with reports about everyday events. When it is safe for us to appear with you, then regular T.V. programs will take place, allowing us a platform to tell about our plans and your future. The most important aspect is to calm peoples fears and prove that we come in peace, and that we are your future selves. Everything is planned is for your upliftment and benefit, and whatever changes take place you will be the ones to gain far more than you are likely to lose.

As you are to ascend with Mother Earth, total cleansing must take place and that will be of the land, seas and atmosphere that have been badly polluted. It has partially taken place through our presence and use of our superior technologies. Our brief has always been to keep a balance on Earth, and we have done that even to the extent of having prevented it from tilting too far off its axis. Earthquakes are quite natural, but we have lessened their affect where they have posed a great threat to mankind. They are Mother Earth's way of being involved in her own cleansing, and vitally necessary if she is to be returned to her pristine condition.

Sooner or later everyone of you will have to face the truth about your sojourn upon Earth. What you have been told is a far cry from the truth, and often it is distorted to suit the cause of those who control you. Yet you are born free and entitled to express yourselves as Spiritual Beings having a physical experience. That degree of freedom will be yours very soon, and you will forget the difficult times in duality although the lessons learnt will remain with you. You will come to appreciate what a great experience you have had, and how much it has furthered your evolution. That indeed is what you came to Earth for, and it has been a wonderfully enlightening time that ultimately you will have no regrets about whatsoever.

I am SaLuSa from Sirius, and we are so pleased to see you getting the proof you want that is confirming the dark Ones are in retreat. There is no place to hide or escape justice, so you do not have to concern yourselves about their fate. As with each soul that has walked the Earth, all of you are bound by Universal Law, and no one is above it. The Laws do not however give punishment, but instead the opportunity to make good your mistakes. All is carried out whilst you are held in the energy of Unconditional Love, that you should know how much you are loved by God.

Thank you SaLuSa.
Mike Quinsey.

Ahora el templo del Dios viviente ha sido reconstruido de nuevo para ser el anfitrión de Aquel que lo creó. Donde Él mora, Su Hijo mora con Él y nunca están separados. Y dan gracias de que finalmente se les haya dado la bienvenida. Donde antes se alzaba una cruz, se alza ahora el Cristo resucitado, y en Su visión las viejas cicatrices desaparecen. Un milagro inmemorial ha venido a bendecir y a reemplazar una vieja enemistad, cuyo fin era la destrucción. Con dulce gratitud Dios el Padre y el Hijo regresan a lo que es Suyo, y a lo que siempre lo será. Ahora se ha consumado el propósito del Espíritu Santo. Pues Ellos han llegado. ¡Por fin han llegado!

Is There Such A Thing As Healthy Narcissism?

Is There Such A Thing As Healthy Narcissism?

Entrevista al psicólogo Iñaki Piñuel: 

The Song of the Soul Group

The Song of the Soul Group

Posted by Steve Beckow
Many people today are discussing how they’re meeting each other and feeling as if they knew each other for a long time or in some distant past. My own sense of that is that, as we rise in dimensionality, the law of attraction is bringing members of our soul group together.
SaLuSa tells us that our incarnated lives are orchestrated as groups: “Naturally your plans are intertwined with other souls, and together you play out your roles to help each other move forward.” (1) “Every aspect of your lives is planned,” he informs us, “and you are each part of soul groups that come together with the purpose of gaining experience.” (2) That may leave us wondering where free will comes in. He explains:
“We hear some question where freewill comes in, but there would be no plan unless you exercised it prior to incarnating. Freewill is still your prerogative, but having agreed to a plan for your life you are drawn to those people and experiences that will help fulfil it. Your Guides are also very active in keeping you on track, but the final word is with you.” (3)
Frances Banks, speaking from the afterlife, tells us that we’re drawn together by the Law of Attraction: “The progressing entity is drawn by the Law of Attraction to a Group progressed to that stage which will express, for him, the intensity of awareness which he is now capable of receiving.” (4) She tells us that soul groups come together especially at times of great change. This age is undoubtedly one of those.
“Group Souls preside over universal movements, over great causes and thus members of one Spiritual Family are often attracted to each other by mutual interests, by a special life work, as well as by external links. They work together, may indeed share their lives in partnership, or may only meet occasionally as they work in some particular project.” (5)

The same soul group may come together repeatedly, SaLuSa tells us: “Often your situation has been one where soul mates or good friends have come together in many lives, as a continuance of your learning. Such meetings are often accompanied by an instant feeling of recognition, and even families frequently come together and strong bonds are always present.” (6)
When we reincarnate together, we assume appropriate roles that allow all of us to progress, even if we cease to be aware that we have, as SaLuSa reminds us: “Often there are groups of you that come together for that very purpose, and you help each other to progress. You play your parts fully immersed in the characters that you choose, and as far as you are concerned it is an absolute reality.” (7)
The coming together of the soul group will be the prime mechanism of our further evolution, SaLuSa says:
“When you become part of a group consciousness, then you shall benefit from every soul that is part of it. Sharing is a very spiritual gesture that comes with awakening to the Oneness of all life.” (8)
“You like us are evolving through group consciousness, and it will gradually embrace more and more souls who are recognizing the Oneness of All That Is.” (9)
The tendency to move forward in groups is built into us, Archangel Michael hints: “The Soul has a natural inclination toward group-consciousness. It is the Soul which seeks reunification, not the ego personality. Advancement on the path increases Soul consciousness and group awareness.” (10)
While our separativeness increases as we go deeper into density, as we climb higher, our unity and cohesion expand, as Frederic Myers explains from the afterlife. Our experience in the afterlife will be freer than it is in matter and so we need to make that allowance when reading Myers’ description.
“The higher the ego climbs on the ladder of consciousness, the nearer it draws to other kindred souls. I have already told you that there may be a thousand, a hundred, or merely twenty souls all fed by one spirit. Their consciousness of comrade-souls increases on the higher levels of existence.
“In time they are able to enter into the other souls’ memories, perceive their experiences and be sensible of them as if they were theirs. Mind becomes communal in the last stages, for the spirit, the unifying principle, is tending all the time to produce greater harmony, and therefore greater unity. These various individuals are merging more and more, becoming one in experience and in mind, and thus attaining to undreamt-of levels of intellectual power.” (11)
As we mount the ladder of dimensionality now, moving towards Ascension, the call to each other will grow stronger, Archangel Michael tells us.
“The call of reunification is beginning for many of you, whereby your refined Soul Song is reaching various members of your God Self. As you refine your vibrational patterns and your Energetic Signature reaches a certain level of harmony, your Soul Song will begin to reverberate out into and through the fourth, into the fifth and for some of you, possibly even into the sixth dimensions, and very gradually into the auric fields of some of the Soul Fragments of your Higher Self.
“Slowly, as these blessed facets of your Self become aware of you, they will begin the process of moving into alignment with you. Those whose resonance is lower than yours will fall into line below you, and those who are on the Path ahead of you will slowly move into the column of Light above you. You will also be moving laterally, as well as higher, into the refined realms as all of the fragments of your I AM Presence gradually begin the process of moving closer and closer to your central column of Divine Light.” (12)
In the afterlife as in material life, the urge to meld with the group increases especially after we reach the Fifth Dimension. Frederic Myers tells us.
“The spirit must gather a harvest of experience in every form. Gradually these intelligences evolve and merge. The experience necessary to the spirit is completed when all the souls necessary to the design have reached this Fifth plane. Once they become sensible of their oneness and their individuality they may go forward to the Sixth plane. There is, then, a breaking of the threads, a casting away of the dross of emotional experience, a sifting and changing on the part of all these souls. They pass once more into Hades [Myers' name for the etheric planes, from where humans enter and leave physical incarnation] and review, in that state, all that now lies behind them.” (13)
After Ascension, we’ll meet up with our soul mates and continue on with the group consciousness that fits our level of development, as St. Germaine reveals: “Think upon it, my Dear Ones, in reality all souls are your loved ones and you are linked together for Infinity, and some will have had a more personal link with you. You will rejoin your soul mate [upon Ascension] and also move into a group consciousness that is perfect for your level of vibration.” (14)
Diane of Sirius depicts our future of increasing balance and group cooperation.
“Your future lies in a balanced approach to whatever you do, until there seems to be no difference from one person to another. Working together becomes easy and quite natural, and for all that you retain your own personality. Group consciousness will also develop as a result, and it is commonplace in the higher dimensions.
“It brings a peace that cannot be achieved at present, and a directional flow that continues to take you ever onwards. Bringing the energy of Light to yourself serves to bring balance to that individual, and you gain much through living your life in this way.” (15)
Frances Banks reminds us that we are not members only of one soul group, but of many.
“We are, to my limited knowledge, all members not of one Group but of many, and the many make up the Great Group or the Great Soul Being in which we live and move and have our being … and these great Beings unite to form further great Group Souls or Divine Beings in the Divine Company of Heaven.” (16)
Often a soul group coalesces to address a common work or solve a common problem, Banks says.
“These Soul Groups are extensive, yet concentrated in their classes and workshops. They realize more than we can possibly do the Divinity inherent in every particle of the Cosmos. They are able to study Divine Laws beyond our understanding. They commune together with and in the Mind of the Higher Beings whose Soul Group they constitute. They work for progress in Divine Imagination and they work as Divine Inspirational Groups. They inspire lower groups with their findings, for they still contain the lower groups within their Centres as cell-points in a vast, intricate and beautiful organism.
“Amongst them are philosophers, scientists, researchers, priests, teachers. They are parts of Groups which influence and impress such movements on earth as Psychic Research, Healing movements, Religious Co-operation, the advancement of Science and all movements intended to bring Light upon future worlds.” (17)
Thus we can see that separativeness increases as density increases and cohesiveness increases as density declines. As we evolve, our tendency towards unity grows and we seek out and live among soul groups. In the afterlife these groups may tackle a common problem. In physical life, they may come together to orchestrate events at times of great social change such as we are in now.
The higher our dimensionality, the more the song of the soul group calls out to us. It surely rings true for us that individuality is most pronounced where separation prevails and group consciousness is most pronounced where unity prevails. Our ultimate fate is to return to the one unity that our identity as fragments of God points toward. Ultimately we come back into absolute unity. The formation of the soul group, I think, is one step along that path.

Archangel Gabriel: the Quality of Love Known as Generosity

Channeled by Marlene Swetlishoff/Tsu-tana

March 8, 2012

We come to give discourse on the quality of Love known as generosity. This quality is one that blesses the people around them with largess of spirit and goodwill, with gifts from the heart given without thought to Self and what might return in equal measure to the giver.

This quality of Love creates openings in the hearts of those receiving, which inspire them to continue on their spiritual journey and in the fulfillment of their part in the Divine Plan.

The One who shares with others in order to encourage and give greater confidence to the recipient is manifesting a higher form of Love that could be called Divine, for the One who does so is listening with their heart to the direction that Creator instills within them.

When the World you live upon is peopled with kind and generous hearts who desire only the greatest and highest good for all, for the betterment of all, then the World you live upon is filled with peace, harmony and abundance of all that is good and right.

Life upon this Planet manifests a higher order of Being and doing that encompasses the perpetuation of this quality of Love. Generosity in all its forms is as varied and unlimited in scope as the diversity of each unique individual in the Human family. At every turn on their Path, every individual can at any time perform random acts of kindness, caring and generosity that enrich the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual lives of others.

All that is required is a greater perspective, a deep Love for their family members, neighbors and even strangers who play the role of the inspirer and can uplift and bring clarity into the workings of the Human spirit. Within each Soul lives a greater Presence that counsels and guides them throughout every aspect of their Human life and if One but takes heed of this, One can always walk in attunement and alignment with a higher will and purpose.

When One listens from within, miraculous synchronicities begin to take place with commonality and frequency and the generous One knows not how far the seeds they planted have grown, for sometimes, by their act of kindness and generosity, deep and positive changes have thereby transpired that affected successive generations of people.

And so the generous One graces the entire Planet and brings blessings to all, for every act of kindness and caring creates a new template of conduct as a living example of a Divinely directed life that inspires faith and trust in those around them.

Goodness inspires and begets more goodness, more happiness, more joy, more laughter and spontaneous generosity in every facet of life in Human form. Such people are living in accordance to higher principles of conduct as befits a higher civilization. In such a society, there is no need for the policing of Humanity’s activities, for each individual is genuinely and sincerely taking self responsibility to its highest code of conduct, knowing and doing what is right and good for themselves and that this is also for the greatest good for all.

Generosity of spirit manifests in many forms within the Human heart and always uplifts, supports and ignites the flame of Love within the hearts of others who are inspired in turn to pay it forward.

Doing good for others develops a more disciplined character and personality and tempers selfish tendencies with deeds which surpass the bounds of perceived limitations and restrictions into a place of boundless magic and miracles, for this is the true World, the Creators’ World, vast and infinite in its scope and wonders. We leave you now with generous amounts of Love and healing Light that may bring balance within and around you.

I AM Archangel Gabriel

Authenticity, Transparency and Integrity

By Dr. Margaret Paul
March 04, 2012

Do you know how to discern when someone is being transparent and authentic and when they are being duplicitous?

We seem to be living in a time when authenticity and transparency are not highly valued. We have only to look at government and many government agencies such as the FDA, politics, the military, big corporations, some religious leaders, drug companies, insurance companies and the media to see that manipulation and lies are the norm. Many of us have naturally come to mistrust much of what is being said in the media.

People become inauthentic when they have something to hide, and they are transparent when they are coming from integrity.

How can you know when someone is being authentic and transparent, or lying and manipulating? The answer is to learn to trust your feelings.

I rarely watch presidential debates because I can feel how much lying and manipulating is going on. I can’t stand watching commercials – especially food and drug commercials – for the same reason. Same with a lot of the news. I get a yucky, creepy feeling in my body that feels so bad I have to not listen.

Obviously, the intent to control is far more important to all these people and organizations than the intent to be loving to themselves and others. I often wonder - how can they live with themselves? It’s so obvious that power and greed have taken them over and they have completely lost touch with their loving essence. Perhaps they even believe they are being loving to themselves by trying to control everything and everyone.

Having worked with some of these people, I know that they are not happy, peaceful people. Their inner emptiness is so huge that they have to get more and more stuff and attention to stave off their pain. A friend of mine recently worked with a well-known financial success guru. He had been very excited to be hired to work with him, and I was interested in hearing how it went. “It was a disaster,” he told me over lunch. “The guy has no depth at all. Everything about him is superficial. He couldn’t take any of my suggestions due to his ego. I couldn’t wait to get out of there.”

Interesting. Many people I know have taken this man’s workshops, but I’ve never been drawn to do so, because his energy in his videos has felt awful to me. I’m so glad I trusted myself!

There is an energy – a frequency - to authenticity, transparency and integrity that feels clean and light. There is also a frequency to inauthenticity. Sometimes it’s hard to feel it because the person may be very charismatic and sound so sincere. This is why it is very important to move beyond the external and let yourself be aware of the feelings in your body. Since people cannot hide their intent, if you trust your feelings you will be able to pick up the frequency of manipulation and duplicity. When watching politicians, I can hear my inner Guidance saying things like, “He gives me the heebie jeebies.” “Her energy makes me sick.” “Oh Yuck!” (My inner Guidance doesn’t mince words!)

On the other hand, when I feel tingles and shivers, I know that I’m hearing the truth. I also feel an expansiveness inside when someone is being authentic, as opposed to the constriction I often feel when someone is being inauthentic.

I have a much harder time picking all this up when it is someone I believe I know well and care for. This is likely challenging for all of us. When you love someone and connect with their essence, it’s often hard to be aware of when they are in their ego wounded self, being manipulative and deceitful. Sometimes we need others who are not so involved to help with this.

I encourage everyone to work towards trusting your feelings about others, as well as becoming truly authentic and transparent yourselves. It’s a much easier way to live than trying to hide.

An Anonymous Donor and Envelopes Stuffed with Cash

2012 March 1
Posted by Louie

The German city of Braunschweig has a new benefactor. An anonymous donor has been stuffing envelopes filled with 10,000 euros in cash into the mailboxes of charitable organizations. His latest contribution was an anomaly. A local hospice found the money under its doormat.

An Anonymous Donor and Envelopes Stuffed with Cash

By Nora Gantenbrink,, 28th February,1518,818106,00.html

There are stories that are so good they are hard to believe. Henning Noske laughs when he hears such sentiments. A section editor with daily Braunschweiger Zeitung, Noske has been a journalist for thirty years and if there is one thing he knows, it’s that a good story is a good story.

These are crazy times for Noske. His phone is constantly ringing with major German television stations seeking to speak with him. All because his little paper has been thrust into the limelight by a local story. “Every editor dreams of such a story!” says Noske.

It all started with an article about a local robbery. A short while later an envelope, sent by an anonymous donor, found its way to the local victim support center. The envelope contained €10,000 — in cash. Twenty €500 notes.

Further envelopes followed:

€10,000 for a day-care center
€10,000 for four local churches
€10,000 for a choir
€10,000 for a group providing meals to the homeless
€10,000 for a soup kitchen
and on and on.

Over the weekend, the anonymous giver made another donation. An intern at a local hospice found an envelope stuffed with €10,000 hidden under the doormat as she was taking out the garbage.

Even as a variety of organizations have benefited, all the donations have followed the same pattern. Each gift was placed in a white envelope and the donation has almost always been the same, though one was for €50,000. Furthermore, says Noske, “the money was often wrapped in an article from our paper.” The weekend donation was accompanied by an article about the hospice that received the money.

Mystery of the Good Samaritan

The residents of Braunschweig are enthralled. Does the city, in the German state of Lower Saxony, have a guardian angel who, with a newspaper in hand, identifies those in need? A good Samaritan who roams the night with envelopes stuffed with cash?

On February 1, staff at the Braunschweiger Zeitung even found an envelope in their own offices. A reporter had written a feature about Tom, a local 14-year-old boy, who for seven years had been severely handicapped following a swimming accident. The piece described how the boy’s family were dealing with the difficulties of caring for the boy.

A few days later, the receptionist opened an anonymous white envelope to find 20 €500 notes inside. A copy of the article about Tom accompanied the cash. What’s more, the name of the family was underlined in the article: The money was clearly for Tom.

“I was driving when I heard the news,” says Claudia Neumann, Tom’s mother. “I had to park on the side of the road, I was speechless.” Later she told her son that he had received a large sum of money from an unknown donor. Since his accident Tom can only communicate through a computer with a voice synthesizer. He clapped his hands in joy upon hearing the news.

Tom’s parents want to use the money to improve the entrance to their house to make it more wheelchair-accessible. They also plan to enrol their son in a course of therapy that their insurance has refused to pay for. “For someone to act so selflessly, for this to happen in such an individualist society in which everyone thinks of himself,” was astonishing, said Claudia Neumann.

Modern-Day Robin Hood

Nobody knows who the benefactor is. “But of course such a thing captures your imagination,” says Tom’s mother. Her children suggested that it could be the doings of a modern-day Robin Hood — someone who maybe steals from banks to share the money with the needy.

“Or it’s an old person who is about to die,” says Henning Noske. “We just don’t know.” The local paper, which now reports almost daily on the mystery, has decided to respect the donor’s desire for anonymity and is not attempting to find his or her identity.

Recently, though, the paper has begun receiving requests for articles about various organizations in the hopes that a white envelope may be forthcoming. Even establishments in Bremen, some 170 kilometers away, have registered their desire to be reported. “That’s not the way we work!” says Noske. “We will not allow ourselves to be instrumentalized — we always follow the press code of conduct.”

Legally, accepting the money is not a problem, as long as there is no indication of criminal activity.

By now, the mystery benefactor has shared out €190,000. He or she always puts the money in a post box, except for twice. Once, the money was hidden between hymn books and on the weekend it was found under a doormat. Hans-Jürgen Kropkow, a local priest, is among the recipients, having found €10,000 in his mailbox one day. “I’d never held so much money in my hand, it made me jittery,” says Kropkow.

Most recipients of the white envelopes expressed their gratitude through theBraunschweiger Zeitung. Tom’s mother is also planning on placing a thank you announcement in the paper.

“You know, every good journalist dreams of being able to make a difference!” says Noske. But in Braunschweig, a good Samaritan is making such dreams come true.
