Key Meaning of Bees
You’ve had a good idea, time to focus, change of residence
What Does it Mean When a Bee Flies Around You?
When a bee acts in an unusual way, like it is trying to get your attention by buzzing around you, then the Universe has a message for you.
When the bee appears, stop and pay attention to the idea circulating in your mind at that very moment. The buzzing bee says – that was a great idea you just had! Most likely, your spirit guide popped the idea into your head and coaxed the bee into ensuring you paid attention to the guidance.
When this happens, you should also read my Spirit Guide Message – to receive an additional symbolic message.
3 Spiritual Meanings of Bees
You may wonder, are bees a good omen? Yes, the bees are considered a lucky omen. Here are three further messages the bee delivers:
1. Focus More
You know the expression ‘busy as a bee’. You are handling so many different projects at the moment, you are at risk of doing nothing very well. You will achieve more, at this time, by prioritizing your focus.
If you have been working on a project or situation for a while, the bee says ‘stick with it’, the fruits of your labor will be forthcoming.
2. Be Creative
This is a fertile time for you. Bees are a symbol of fertility, and can predict a pregnancy is some instances. However, mostly the bee is a sign to be mentally creative and to find new solutions to lingering problems. Think outside of the box because solutions are available when the bee is near.
3. Worthy Idea
If you have an idea that will benefit many people, the bee acts as a blessing from the spirit world to go ahead with it. You will find the necessary support to help you because bees are associated with supportive teamwork.
What Does it Mean When a Bee Lands on You?
When a bee lands on you, then it is making an extra effort to get your attention! This increases the urgency of his message, the bee really wants you to act soon.
If you just had a good idea, for example, then you really should act quickly because someone may get there before you.
What It Means When a Bee Stings You
If a bee stings you, do not take this as a sign of bad luck. The little creature is simply trying to convey an increasing sense of urgency. He acts as your cosmic alarm bell. You are being warned that you may miss an opportunity if you don’t act immediately.
When a bee flies around you, this is like DEFCON 5 in military terms – the lowest state of action. You still have time to think, prepare and act on his message. When the bee lands on you, you move to DEFCON 3, and need to act sooner. If you get stung, then you are in DEFCON 1. Immediate action required!
What is The Meaning When You Dream of Bees?
What do bees symbolize in dreams?
When a bee appears in your dreams, it may be buzzing around you, on top of your food or even threatening to sting you. The bee is a sign in dream therapy, that you are anxious or stressed about a situation in your waking life.
Your subconscious is aware of a threat looming over you, which you are trying to ignore. The bee says, you can’t ignore me, I am the thing you fear. You may as well deal with me, and then I’ll go away.
What is The Spiritual Meaning of a Swarm of Bees?
When you see a swarm of bees, it can predict that you will move house or change location soon.
Usually honey bees swarm for one of two reasons. Either the hive has become overcrowded and split in two, one half flying away. Or the hive has become infected with disease or disturbed in some way. This is why swarms are associated with a change of residence.
