“When studying honeybees, one will find that they are creatures whose secrets are not easily elicited. A bee colony is an extremely complex entity. It consists of many thousands of individuals who have the ability to respond wisely to a wide variety of circumstances. To this day, it is not clear how they achieve this. In fact, one could say that a bee colony is imbued with an incomprehensible wisdom that encompasses each individual bee and ensures that the colony remains viable despite ever-changing living conditions.” — Karsten Massei

With Gifts of the Honeybees, Karsten Massei presents the fruits of years of careful intuitive research into the spiritual and elemental reality of honeybees. Karsten’s sharing of his ongoing dialogue with the inner being of the bees gifts us with surprising insights, giving us the opportunity to look at the world of bees, and ourselves, with different eyes.

There has been a great deal of research and speculation about the reasons why bees are dying. The causes are varied, but there is no doubt that all causes ultimately lead back to human activity. Technical and economic development that began in the nineteenth century has increasingly led to dealing with the beings of nature disrespectfully and in a way that is destructive to life on earth.

The spiritual beings that are connected with the life of bees, and whose messages are shared in this book, unequivocally voice that the plight of bees is actually the plight of human beings. They ask us to finally “wake up” to the spiritual reality of our world and the already evident consequences if we do not.

Gifts of the Honeybees is a translation from German of Die Gaben die Bienen (Futurum Verlag, 2014). Cover art by Karsten Massei: Honeybees as Messengers of the Spiritual World.
