We have all heard the term- Busy as a Bee or the hive is 'a buzz with activity'..  Bees stay very busy.  When you see a bee or even if you are stung- we are reminded (sometimes very painfully) of what happens when we are not doing what we are supposed to be doing.  When you see a bee or hive ask yourself, "Am I keeping busy?  Am I doing what I should be doing?  Am I doing too much of one thing and neglecting another?"  It is critical to be aware of one's self, for the true rewards are the honey that we make.  

Bees are strong symbols of fertility.  Without the bee- many flowers and trees would never be pollinated.  Remember: It is important to help ourselves; give to the family's purpose; and do our part: but, it is equally important to consider other life and help it, as well.  "Is there something I can do for my family and benefit the other people of this world?"  Help the world grow and we help ourselves grow, too.  

Smoke is trouble for the bees.  Smoke has many forms.  Smoke can be a real fire endangering all our work or it can be a smoke screen of lies we tell ourselves so we can avoid doing what we should be doing. Watch out for it!
