Do not cut spruce for the New Year holidays, give up this wild, strange custom of the Slavs. Slavs have always felt the nature and care of her. Do not cut spruce on a holiday — it is custom Chernobog symbolizing the murder of Veles and the triumph of darkness. This is the magic of sacrifice. Do not cut spruce and you will feel that they have become healthier, stronger, calmer, will establish a personal life. Maybe because people are living with a bunch of problems, which together dragging felled fir at home in the new year. She avenges people, radiating energy resentment and fear. In fact, people celebrate the New Year's table for eating death, death god Veles.
From felled spruce energy comes the fear of death and people feed on this energy. In this way they make their souls even more callous, black, reinforce a program of fear. This attract various magic attacks and unpleasant situations.
Doctors say that living volatile good for health, but do not say that the energy of death destroys health and destiny. This can be understood only by a subtle sense of people.
How would you like it if you died and were taken around you dance and sing a song?
The world is very fair. Rewarded for pain pain for joy — joy.
December 21 people go into the garden, shake the snow from trees and shrubs. Congratulate garden with the winter solstice. Communicate with trees, pets, bees and all domestic animals. The same thing can be done in the forest.
