The Symbolism of Bumble Bees And Finding Balance


As summer approaches, so do all living creatures that have been in hiding during the cold winter months. All beautiful, but some, not so inviting. Take the Bumble Bee ๐Ÿ for example... Interesting to watch buzz around, but not something I'd want to close to me. In fact, I've never seen a Bumble Bee ๐Ÿ try and get into the house so much, as I have this year. When I go outside, they buzz around me or stay at the door to greet me (scare me to death more like it! lol). They go up to each window, one after the other, trying to take a peek or get my attention. I've never seen anything like it before. I don't know who's vying for more attention, the Robin or the Bumble Bee, lol.

So I thought that I'd look up the symbolic meaning of the Bumble Bee ๐Ÿ to see what it might mean, just to cover all bases, and what I found was so on par.

"When a bee ๐Ÿ appears in your life the most common message it carries has to do with your levels of productivity. In some cases we are doing too much, and in others not enough. Bee spirit has a strong work ethic but it also knows the importance of stopping and smelling the flowers. There is a time to enjoy life's nectar and time to grab after the proverbial brass ring with vehemence. Bees help with both and in finding the delicate balance between the two."

This is so true with all of us. There are so many things that we have to balance in our lives; work, family, play, leisure, relaxation, caring for others, caring for ourselves, social consciousness, political consciousness, environmental consciousness, religious beliefs and activities, physical needsโ€ฆ to name only a few of the issues most of us are balancing, often without realizing it, all of the time. โ€œFinding balanceโ€ in our lives is so important, yet so hard, that there are mountains of books and articles about it.
