Bees are symbolic of the sun and his spirited energies . . .

A wake up call to drink in Life’s honey through the
Power of Love, fertility, industry and sexuality

A Tribe Called Bee represents . . .
Groupwork and the power of community –
Without sacrificing our individuality by getting stuck in hive mentality

Working in masculine drones, bees epitomize a strong work ethic –
A parallel process to humanity’s conservative Labor Movement
Queens rule the roost – so their society hints at matriarchal
Paradoxically their culture is hierarchical

The top-down world we live in has roots that are deeply planted
In the underground of our subconscious minds
But Nature has strong leveling impulses to a
Cross-Pollinate a more equitable New Earth
Where flowering power is shared

We dream of a world that does not give liberal affirmative action
To only those with big bank accounts
Out of the primordial, feminine darkness . . .
Dreams of an egalitarian planetary consciousness –
Are wanting to come out and dance in the sunlight

Past Bruce now Caitlyn Jenner’s transformation
Reveals our cultural sprint toward
Crossing over into the shores of celebrating diversity in Unity

Do yo need to examine your own sexuality or your attitudes toward sex in general?

We are healing our polarity

The sting of political correctness glosses over deeper issues with
Superficial “life support systems”
But flying with a playful sense of humor
Sees the light behind this black comedy of errors

Class War is as hot as ever
Fueled by a well-oiled but dirty and unsustainable Stock Exchange
Old World “tinder boxes” are ready to ignite
These are dangerously fiery times we are living in

Movement into a New Age and Paradigm flows into
Rising tides of strong feminine power
We are leaving behind a dominant patriarchical world view
that fears the Sacred Feminine

But the dark night of yin wants to come out of the closet and express herself
This does not mean “sugar and spice and everything nice”

Nor does it mean reacting to our emotions
with stinging volatility or closeted elegant repression

We are witnessing a mass exodus of Bees
Genocide by poisonous pesticides
But they do return once we stop using these toxins

A planet without bees is a world without flowers and fruits
Talk about a buzz killer

“A good worker is a happy worker”

Like bees, humans know there is power in numbers . . .
Dig in to unearth a deeper message beneath the command –
“Be fruitful and multiply”

Are you working too much or not being industrious enough?
Are you taking time to smell the roses and enjoy the fruits of your labor?

Let us spread Love by ringing the Liberty Bell of equality
Get up and stand up to corporate power by asserting that our
Big Businesses should literally stop “killing it” –
It is time to let go of a bottom line intention of maximum economic profits

Bee are helpful guides in the pursuit of our dreams
Sunlight is rising toward its summit on Summer Solstice later on this month
Masculine-Light-Yang is action oriented
Reflecting Nature’s pole vault toward outer growth

See you further on up the trails,

Bees embody busyness and symbolize being industrious, concentration, activity, group communication and connection with family and social networks. Their energy forecasts busy times ahead. Bees are productive members of our worldly society and make honey, the elixir of Life. Drinking in their energy reminds us that Life is sweet, as Bees represents wealth, prosperity, and hard work paying off. When we see bees, we might “bee” prompted to organize and structure our outer and inner worlds. Their spirited teachings also reflect our need to live for our shared collective consciousness.

In our developing World, Bees inspire an awareness of cooperation and competition in our work and interactions with one another. Bees communicate that good business practice means “one worker, one vote in a competitive, profitable enterprise. But the profits don’t go to the top, they go to every person that has a stake in the enterprise. So you have everybody invested in the company, everybody wants it to succeed. If it operates in this matter, you don’t have bitter labor fights, you don’t have companies going under, employees losing their jobs and executives becoming millionaires. Instead, you have a lot of people making a fair salary.” I hardly think any Bees would be sued for being effective whistleblowers for the sake of the betterment of the hive. As humanity wakes up to win-win interactions in our work and play, we open up to welcoming abundance in our affairs. We all have gifts to share in our contribution to a more fair and just society.

Bees also symbolize reincarnation. Being present in this area facilitates communication with the dirge of our old selves, reminding us of who we used to be. Sometimes, it can be hard to let go of who we once were. “That’s just the way we’ve always done it.” We might find ourselves neatly packaged in a box of how others think we should be or how we see ourselves. But learning to trust and let go of the process of our unfolding is good medicine. Is your soul asking you to fly into new zones? Are you producing enough or enjoying the fruits of your labor? Are you so busy that you never have time to do what you want? Are you pregnant with an idea, fertile with your creativity and/or need to examine your own sexuality or attitudes toward sex in general? “Speaking words of wisdom” it’s OK to “let it be”.

“If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink”. It is good to remember that the Kingdom of Heaven is within our Being. Sometimes, picturing a waterfall or even going for a swim cools us down to see the forest for the trees. This also has a cleansing effect on our mind-body-spirit so that we do not get too submerged. Consuming the energies of Bee and the New Moon on Monday can help you stay connected and in alignment with your soul’s sacred journey while on Earth. Trusting that the Universe will provide and unfold as it needs to helps us drink in Life and quench our thirst for action and results. Sometimes it is challenging to sit with tension that arises from our expectations that we will enjoy the fruits of our labor and see the results of that hard work. Being consumed with anxiety can block us from allowing ourselves to stop and smell the roses. Please give yourself permission to do whatever you can to “be here be now” in your travels.

Has anyone out there ever been kissed by a Dolphin?  Although I have not been blessed with a physical smooch, I have repeatedly experienced sacred encounters while swimming along side porpoises in the Gulf of Mexico.  One time, I swear I received an unexpected surprise that felt like a telepathic, heartfelt kiss by a porpoise swimming only feet away from me!  Ah, “Dolphin . . . Breath of the Divine, Manna of the Universe, in Oneness We entwine.”  Perhaps it has been awhile since a Dolphin encounter as provocative as the former for yours truly, but I am inspired by Lao Tzu’s energy in me to get out after it as I heed his lyrics, “Nature is the best physician.”  In this “world of 10, 000 things” and bling, bling, why not tap into Dolphin medicine’s free-flowing Spring.  In my internal martial arts studies, I remember noticing that in the process of getting “it”, “it always comes back to the breath”.  And it Sounds True that if We want to really live, then We must remember to breathe!  Why not become aware of Your own breathing, as it transmutes an unconscious experience with Life to a conscious One.  “The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”–Alice Walker

Further, if We allow Dolphin’s energy to swim into the waters of Our Consciousness, We say yes to Dolphin’s year-round teachings to discover hidden caverns and underwater cities within the depths of Our souls that exist in the Dreamtime.  Has anyone out there seen the Australian film, ‘The Last Wave’?  I think the film is a flowing stream of consciousness reminding Us to remember how to dream–something We have largely forgotten in Our modern, Western world.  Even though I am still dreaming of a free for service economy, I can hear ‘Men at Work’ singing an old Aboriginal folk spiritual . . . “Do you come from a Land Down Under?  Where women glow and men plunder.  Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder?  You better run, you better take cover.” Many of Us have gotten lost in a sea of conceptual, mental concepts and the robotic doings of Our daily responsibilities and distractions.  But Dolphin is here to remind Us to draw a bridge between Our material realm and the Dreamtime, by putting Us “on notice to be mindful of Your body rhythms and patterns of energy being fed to You from the Creator.”  I choose to drink in from a hopeful Spring that asserts that there is so much help available to Us from the Spirit realm, if only We clearly ask for It and allow for It, come what May.  I think the Boss energy in me is right when he sings, “it takes a leap of faith”, when We make the conscious choice to surrender to the Will of the Universe.  Easier said than done!  Do You need to pay more attention to learn something new, to your intellectual development, communicate more effectively to others and/or enjoy Life more by becoming more playful?  Dolphin energy can help You in this area. 

If We swim with Dolphin in the oceans of Life, We invoke Its medicine of knowing Our primordial history and remembering the power of breath and sound.  I know the experience of being highly sensitive to the vibrations of others, as I feel them reverberating within my soul very organically and naturally.  However, even those of Us whom are oblivious Our deeper Selves and/or less aware of the energies of others, We all stand to benefit from learning how to incorporate conscious breathing and sound into Our daily transactions.  How many panic attacks could be derailed by simply taking in a deep breath through the nose and slowly exhaling through somewhat closed, pursed lips and repeating this process three times?  Picture calming, relaxing thoughts, perhaps a waterfall and say positive self-talk statements, such as “I am relaxed”.  After this brief walking meditation, see how you feel and repeat as necessary.  However, if You begin to feel dizzy, please sit down and rest for a spell.  After all, Water symbolizes creation, passion, sexuality, new dimensions, forces and is the Element of all Life.  Remembering how to breathe consciously empowers Us to heal Our Selves in mind-body-spirit within the unchartered waters of Your True Self.  In the spirit of that, I strongly encourage You to meditate on Dolphin and consciously connect the dots of your thoughts, feelings and behaviors.  Consider getting outside for some fresh air, play, explore and remember to breathe!  Sea beyond Your small pod, toward Our greater Global community.  And please be mindful of the hungry energies of the Full Moon on March 8th and the waning digestion process thereafter.

I Hopi You are well,

Ari
