I went to the mountains the other day. A beautiful fall day, crisp and clear. The aspen had already turned colors and lost most of their leaves, but the scrub oak was popping with colors of yellow and red. A perfect day to go for a walk in the hills. The path we chose was a little country road carved into the oaks. It was so quiet. The only sound was birds, crickets, and the breeze.
There were purple daisies still putting on the last blooms of the season. And the little Bees and Halloween-colored Butterflies were getting the last bit of pollen. Ahhh, to breathe in and out and climb the trail listening to your own thoughts.
I made it quite a ways but started to get a bit tired in my legs. I am still dealing with some issues from earlier this year. My legs seem to have lost connection with my brain. I don’t know if it is from my Lyme or the Covid I got. I know both can cause sensory nerve issues. Nothing I can do about it but love and nurture my body while she takes care of the rest.
About a mile into the hike, we decided to go back to our car and drive up the rest of the way. Have some lunch and explore some more when I felt stronger. I will not give up, I am no quitter, I just find different ways to do what I want. You create what you want.
This hike was a blessing for sure and I am so glad I did the walk. As you know, if you have read my post, I speak to Spirit all the time, and today I was hearing a lot from Spirit. I believe in signs from spirit, and that if we pay attention, we can gain a lot of information.
As I was walking down the hill, I put my hands in my jacket pocket and felt something soft. I thought maybe it was a piece of mountain sage I had been playing with earlier. My hands are not strong, so I was very gently rolling this soft ball between my fingers.
I brought my hand out of my pocket and to my surprise, here was a tiny fuzzy Baby Bee. I dropped him rather rudely, but gently on the ground. I went over to make sure he was okay. He was walking around on the ground. I am sure being rolled around like a ball of lint was pretty surprising for him as well.
It shocked me how soft and durable the little fuzzy fellow was. He was brown and yellow and fuzzy, a genuine miracle.
I’ve been working in bee medicine. so I took it as a sign that I’m doing things right. I have added bee pollen and bee propolis to my diet. I have had to micro-dose because of herxing issues.
“When Bee buzzes in as your Spirit Animal, it’s a reminder to trust in miracles.” Bee as a Totem Animal is for those whose greatest wish is for all living things to co-exist in peace and love.
Bee teaches how your higher self is aiding you in a flight pattern that will land you smack dab in the sweetest of spots.
If you think about the Bee is a remarkable defier of flying. It is designed all wrong aerodynamically. From a Spirit perspective, this speaks of our limitations and how to move past them successfully. It’s doubtful that Bee knows it shouldn’t fly, it simply DOES, and so can we.
As you can see, I had a remarkable day. I was present in the moment, and mindful. As I was surrounded by reds, golds, green leaves, and purple flowers, I was reminded to stop and listen to your inner dialogue.
It helped me to put into perspective the issues I have about my illness and the way I take things said to me. I can allow others to trigger me or I can move past them. The other day as I was gathering tomatoes and basil from the garden, the little honey bees were busy gathering pollen from the flowers near me. We worked together. They flew around me and I gently walk amongst them. As I become aware of my surroundings, I see life always in motion. The Bees move from flower to flower and come back to the ones they could not get to.
Life is about creating, moving, and being mindful. To take responsibility for our own actions is truly a loving act. We are showing up in love when we pay attention to everything that surrounds us.
Every day, I am learning about myself, it’s become fun to see what I can create and how I can co-create the day I want. There is no victim, there is only self-pity. We have a choice and the freedom to do as we please. I am empowering myself to step into my greatness and to be a giant and lead the world by example. To bring back the alignment to this planet. When we heal ourselves and our ancestors, we heal the planet.
When we take responsibility for our actions, we heal the planet. When we hold people responsible for their actions, we heal the planet. It is time to awaken and take action in a loving way. And show the world by action that we can heal our world once we have healed ourselves. It is simple, love thyself, and you’ll love the lessons to come.
Until we meet again. Bee good to yourself.
