Winterberry

By the Archangel Melchizadek

November has a purpose and a function that is equal to each of the other eleven months of the year. If you stop and look outside (in the Northern hemisphere) you will see very little happening on the surface. November is a month of transition where the plant life is releasing and letting go on the inside. Right up to the point when the leaves fall, or the plants slide down into the ground there is peacefulness, and internal work.

What would happen to these plants if they did not prepare themselves for the cold winter frosts? They would have too much green wood above ground and die. They are preparing for death and new life in the spring by decreasing their vitality. People have a quieter month of preparation to “get ready for the holidays” which seems to involve the tying up of loose ends and plans being made.

This is a short, yearly lesson in life and death. You can expand it to the shorter lives of animals and people, or the very long life of a planet or star. Think of older people in nursing homes who are slowly, slowly shutting down, and do any of you feel that is wrong? The greatest sense of wrong is when someone young and vital dies. But even then, how do you  know it was wrong for them to die? Having a negative view of death is the flip side of having a negative view of life. Remember that there is only life, and some of it is not spent incarnate on Earth. When November finishes many of you will begin the season of interior lights and cosy rooms, holidays and socialising. December is no longer life quietly sinking down into the ground, it is life at the beginning of a new stage, the stage of rest and sleep for winter forest trees and plants, and a necessary time of gathering energy for the warmer weather. Not a day is wasted in the cycle, something necessary to life is always happening.

You are a natural creation, and part of the natural world. The more you are able to go with the prevailing energy of the seasons the greater the health of your mind and body will be. You will be in balance. When you are not in balance you have great difficulty maintaining your health. We look forward to the coming time when you reverse your flow into large cities and as you re-balance you will make different decisions. When you are balanced the Earth itself will find it easier to be balanced.

November 2013 saw two enormous and damaging storms, Taiphoon Haiyan in the Philippines and the tornadoes in Illinois.  Right in front of your eyes you can see the lack of balance in the Earth and you don’t need any scientific studies to confirm this. Scientists can be bought and sold, and so can their data. Use your own senses and make your own decisions; and then take the actions that lead to balance for the Earth. If you balance your own lives you contribute to balancing the planet. When you have balanced yourselves and your societies you can look forward to the Earth’s axis resuming an upright position. A planet in balance is a very different place to live.
