Aisha North – A Short Update On The Energies – 9 June 2014

AishaNorthDear friends!

This weekend has been off the scale energetically, and many have already reported experiencing some major downloads and transformations. If you have not done so yet, I think you will find it both uplifting and enlightening to read the comments posted under the previous update.

Here is the update from The CCs:

You have by now accomplished something that few would have thought possible only a short while back, and the reason for that, is that this took more than the co-operation of a few shining souls such as the ones you connect with on a daily basis in this sheltered little Pond. For what we refer to this time, is indeed an event of truly magnificent proportions, one that involves groups such as yours in all locations around this globe. Continue reading

John Ward – You Can Put Up All The Investment Charts In The World, But Britain Will Sink Without Trace Because It Cannot Understand Two Simple Word – 9 June 2014

Russian Companies ‘De-Dollarize’ And Switch To Yuan, Other Asian Currencies – 9 June 2014

RT logoRussia will start settling more contracts in Asian currencies, especially the yuan, in order to lessen its dependence on the dollar market, and because of Western-led sanctions that could freeze funds at any moment.

“Over the last few weeks there has been a significant interest in the market from large Russian corporations to start using various products in renminbi and other Asian currencies, and to set up accounts in Asian locations,” Pavel Teplukhin, head of Deutsche Bank in Russia, told the Financial Times, which was published in an article on Sunday.

Diversifying trade accounts from dollars to the Chinese yuan and other Asian currencies such as the Hong Kong dollar and Singapore dollar has been a part of Russia’s pivot towards Asian as tension with Europe and the US remain strained over Russia’s action in Ukraine.
