The honeybee works together with the rest of its hive to collect the pollen which supports them all. There is no competition over who can collect the most pollen – there is only collaboration towards creating sweetness for the whole. Honeybee is here with a request to consider not just what is best for you, but also what is in the greatest good of the whole. To do this, you must seek an understanding of the why behind the other members of your own hive. While you may be harboring resentments over past wrongs, this does not serve the greatest good of all, or even of yourself. It becomes easier to release these resentments when you take the first crucial step of seeking to understand the motivations and limitations of those you feel wronged by. Understanding leads to acceptance of the self and others as we are in the present moment. The honeybee’s message for all today is that only through understanding and acceptance are we able to act with first compassion, and ultimately forgiveness.
The honeybee represents all that is sweet in life. When Honeybee shows up, you can take it as a sign that you have what it takes to achieve what may seem impossible, provided you are living from a compassionate and kind heart space. Honeybee serves as a reminder that everything sweet in life is right there at our fingertips – we only need to make the time to enjoy the honey that is right there before us. Honeybee is a reminder that the promise of the sweet life is possible for as long as we pursue it. Love, laugh, forgive, live in the moment with compassion for all, and you will find the sweetest life of all.
