the deal with bees?
The honeybee is known the world over for its industrious production
of honey. It is the symbol of work, creative activity, transformation,
team work, busyness, cooperation, obedience, orderliness, and
diligence. The honey it produces is a symbol of wisdom, rebirth,
and positive changes in spiritual or moral direction and temperament.Bee
is the ancient symbol of good fortune, joy and harmony. Bee also
teaches us to engage fully in our creative endeavors. The key
is to focus with intention and to be single-minded in purpose.
Finally, bee shows us that all life is interdependent.
All bees are productive. They remain focused in their activities
and do not get distracted from their goal. The bumblebee carries
the power of service. They are important pollinators of many plants.
As a bee lands upon one flower, collecting its nectar, pollen
also attaches itself to the leg fibers. It is then transferred
to other flowers, creating a fertilization process. Their movement
from one plant to another symbolizes the interconnectedness of
all living things. The bumblebee is a messenger that holds the
secrets of life and service.
