Bees are brilliant beeings with highly developed brains and nervous systems connected to remarkable instincts.
Bees are sensitive to ultra-violet and polarized light, even on cloudy days. Bees do everything by the sun. Even so, the balance of solar and lunar energy in bees is intricate. They are intimately solar, and yet they are also deeply of the Cosmic Mother, the Divine Feminine. In this time when each of us must balance out the masculine or feminine with what is already the strongest, bees have integrated the two polarities into one. The solar embodies the masculine, initiating, questing energy while the feminine carries the lunar dark, receptive, knowing forces. Perhaps the bee totem is prominent now, as it is essential to join these equally in balance for personal and planetary illumination.
Some masters have been known to quiet their heartbeat and adjust their body temperatures when in an altered state. This skill is linked to the ancient initiations of mastering the body, mind and spirit. Those with this totem usually have strong past life ties connected to the ancient secrets of longevity.
All bees are productive. They remain focused in their activities and do not get distracted from their goal. Their legs are one of their most sensitive organs. A bee actually tastes through its legs and reminds us to slow down, smell the roses and taste the sweet nectar of life.
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.
