It's time to more clearly recognize the treasures that reside within us. Perhaps it's time to communicate your spiritual gifts.
-Honey Bee

When Bee comes buzzing into your life:

If the Bee has shown up in your life, examine your own productivity. Are you doing all you can to make your life more fertile? Are you busy enough? Are you making time to savor the honey of life and not becoming a workaholic?

The Bee reminds us to make our lives productive while the sun shines and to enjoy the nectar of efforts. No matter how great the dream is, there is the promise of fulfillment if we pursue our dreams.

If the Bee is your Animal Totem;

You have the ability to accomplish the impossible over and over again. You know how to enjoy the sweetness that life brings you and you understand the proper use of your own energy. Your intentions are always focused on a clear path and goal in life. You are also self-sufficient, very focused, a very hard worker, and you work best when they are working with others.

If the Bee has come to you in your dreams:

To see Bees in your dream symbolizes wealth, good luck, harmony, creativity and bliss. Bees are also symbolic of hard work and industry as represented by the common phrase “busy as a Bee.” Your hard work will pay off in the end with sweet results. Alternatively, the dream represents the things that are happening in your life or something that is buzzing with activity. Is there a lot going on in your life?

In particular, to see the queen Bee in your dream refers to a dominant female in your life.

To dream that you are stung by a Bee, indicates that you have been wronged. Maybe you have been hurt by some stinging remark.

  • My husband passed away two months ago and it started with a swarm of bees in the cabin of his boat which is moored quite far away on a river. Since then single bees seem to fly in to my lounge usually late at night but sometimes during the day. Not sure what to make of it or if it’s even related to his passing.

  • I had a honey bee land on my neck while I was driving, I hit it and I didn’t even realise it was a bee until I look at something on my shirt. I looked down and it had no body. It was still alive. Weird thing is I was just on my way back to work. I was at the doctors for a blood test due to low levels of iron.

  • In the past month, 100’s of bees have been coming and dying around me. That is no exaggeration of how many and to what extent might i add. I have 36 sitting dead on their backs at the entrance to my study at home 4ft from me as i type this response. They seem to go to any extent to die within the closest possible proximity of me regardless of where I am. I have had numerous bees now that will fly through a gap in a louvre window that i leave open the connects my laundry and study and 9ft in the air, and because the laundry has one of the main entrances to my house, a number of bees now have flown what seems to be deliberately in through my house using the laundry door on the few times it is left open and then through the window that connects the 2 rooms, just to die on my desk whilst i work during the day. At first I did not think much of it, but now given the circumstance I could not ignore the situation if i tried (nor can my family and friends around me). I hope someone could explain or shed some light on what this may mean in any way.

    • In the fall, hundreds of bees are ousted from the hive (to die cold and alone) to ensure winter survival of the remaining bees within the hive. The ousted bees are seeking out warmth and eventually die from the lack of food, water, etc. Sad, but that’s nature I suppose. Take comfort in knowing that they didn’t die completely alone.

  • I recently had a dream of a king bee and a husky, they were together and I would like to know besides the obvious WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
    Maybe nothing – but maybe something!!!

  • This morning I put on a light sweater and added a pretty silver bee brooch/pin that I haven’t worn in years. Later this afternoon I saw a swarm on main street. It quickly grouped itself on a small tree just 3 feet off the ground. I took several pictures up close and didn’t feel afraid at all. I called a local honey farm and they sent out a swarmcatcher. She said it was a beautiful big healthy swarm and she was grateful I had called. I felt very happy, almost giddy the whole time. Is there a message in this for me?

  • Would there be any other meanings one might receive from bees other than relating to productivity or work? My son and I had the sad task of putting my wonderful six year old cat to sleep yesterday because his kidneys shut down. When we got back to my son’s place, I was about to shut the car door when a honeybee landed there.
    This was the mellowest honey bee in the world. It sat there happily cleaning its wings. My son suggested that we roll down the window a little so it could get out when it was ready. I slid into the driver’s seat to turn the car on so I could roll down the window, and the bee flew away.
    My son said he thought the bee was bringing a positive message after the horrible, sad experience we’d just had. I wonder if maybe it wasn’t bringing a message from my cat. I was very close to this particular cat. He was very special and losing him has been devastating to me.

    • I realize you posted this awhile, but I’ve had very similar incidents and I cannot find any specific references to losing loved ones and visiting bees. A day after I lost my grandpa, i was sitting in the park alone on a bench, reflecting on my loss. I felt a tickle on the palm of my hand and lo and behold a bee was sitting there very calmly. I am not normally very calm around insects of any sort, but I was so sad that I almost felt this bee came to comfort me. It just sat there in the palm of my hand for probably half a minute, but what seemed much longer, then flew away. This past weekend was my son’s birthday party. I was outside cleaning up my deck when I felt something land in my hair close to my ear. Oddly enough it was not buzzing but making a sort of whirring sound that was very soothing. Still, being struck by something in my hair was unnerving, so I instinctively batted it out which is when I realized it was a bee. It didn’t sting me and crawled away. I do think they are messengers. To this day, any fear I had of bees has been replaced with curiousity and affinity.

      • It is time to begin making your dreams realities. Bees have various duties throughout their short but productive lives. Older Bees teach the new Bees their duties. Bees learn from their elders their place in the social structure. You instinct is strong so go with it. There is an unfulfilled duty that is yours to fill. You will be successful. Your Grandpa will give you the advice needed to complete your life path. Your son will follow in your footsteps. Lead wisely your son is watching your every move and will one day walk this same, important path.

        • Thank you for your response Zbeekeeper. Yesterday I was walking my students to their school bus at dismissal and another honeybee came and landed right in front of my feet. I almost stepped on it but noticed just in time and took note of it because it was 26 degrees outside and I’ve never seen a honeybee in the winter.

  • So, today as I was putting some groceries away, i felt a little tickle on the back of my arm, and see a bee totally chillin’ on me. Naturally (or maybe unnaturally), I did a little freak out dance and got the bee off. I did not get stung, thankfully. The bee was fine; my husband relocated it outside. It’s just such a curious thing since I was at home, and would have noticed a bee flying around near me… Any thoughts on what this could mean? I am not afraid of bees, in fact, they are the only insect besides ants that I can be around without getting grossed out or scared. It just felt meaningful, though I dont’ know what it could mean.

    • I can definitely relate. I can’t keep the sugar ants out of my home no matter what I try. It’ll only work for a while and the bees occupies the outside just above the front and back door. Many of them. What I’ve notice is that both are hard workers and is family oriented. Both are modest unless triggered and both believe in communication in order to get the job done. I do believe it is a positive message. God bless.

  • What does it mean when you are stung by a bee (in a VERY random place – ie my bed!) and then immediately following the sting, you see 2 articles/ photographs of bees on social media?

    • For the last…I would say…. two months I’ve been visited by this one bee. Three to four times a week, between 11am to 6pm. While sitting in my bedroom I noticed a bee outside my window. What really drew my attention to it was that it appeared to be conscious of me. When I would look directly at it, it would fly away…for a very short period of time. When I don’t look directly at it…it appears to be observing me. This is still going on, I have no idea what this bee is trying to tell me. I would greatly appreciate some help with understanding what’s going on.

      • I have had this same thing going on. This is why I have looked into bees. I sit on my porch and this bee just seems to sit and watch me while hovering and then if I look at it or say something it flies away. Same at work 4 miles away. Almost seems like the same bee.

    • 😯 I was just stung by a bee in my bed on my ankle while reading to my son. It’s 10 p.m. I would love to know the meaning myself…… 😛

  • I’ve been stung two times in the past month and half.. having never been stung in my life (that i recall) I felt it had to mean something so i started researching the symbolism behind bees.. and more importantly a bee stinging you. I find this information very intriguing.

  • Nearly a year ago my daughter lost her son in a drowning accident. It has been difficult for all of us, but of course she’s had the hardest road. She has been doing a lot better and I’m very thankful for that. Last night I dreamed that she told me that someone had been bringing honey bees to her. I had never seen her look so happy, her joy was incredible.
    If anyone has input, I would greatly appreciate it :smile:


    • Hello,
      They are a symbol of “the land of milk & honey” it’s a biblical scripture. God brought the slaves out of Egypt into a land “flowing with honey (paradise). God will deliver her from the bonds of captivity. A time of joy. A release from pain &sorrow.
      Bees are consider symbolic of a great harvest to come.
      Native American believed they carry messages from the Spirit of Mother Earth. A bountiful land.

      I think heaven has balconies & it was a message from her son. Be free to laugh again.

  • I am hoping someone might be able to help me understand my recent bee encounters. Twice in the past week, on two separate nights, I have gone to bed, only to find a little bee hanging out on my pillow. I have not seen bees anywhere else in the house, and we rarely see bees around my house as we have a major wasp problem here. I feel that the universe is trying to tell me something, but I cannot imagine what.

    • The same thing happened to me. In the past month in three different location I had a bee come inside my car while I was parked. The first time I didn’t think of it much, then it happened the second time , then again for the third time. I said to myself, okay what is going on here? Then just last week a bee come in my house and landed next to me while i was sitting down. For some reason i strongly believe its some type of message.

  • Iam recently 6 weeks pregnant haven’t left the house in weeks trying to hide from my friends as it is still early days. Today I finally had the courage to tell my close friend today because I felt guilty not telling her so we went to a close cafe, had a smoothie were I told her only to be biten on the ass by a massive bee. :sad:
    What does that mean?????

  • Last night i dreamt of a very light golden-yellow Bee which landed on my hand, i felt very blessed – this morning i am minded to share the Bee Myth;

  • Recently I’ve been trying to decide what my totem animal could be. As a child I had a love for Hippo’s and still do to a certain degree. For the past 4yrs or so I have been strongly drawn to the Honey Bee, I’m completely fascinated by them and just love to watch them go about their work. I have no fear of them and have helped out with beehives, in fact one of the hives I helped with was the so called ‘naughty hive’ as they were known to be quite angry. On the day I helped the Beekeeper noted how we were lucky today as they were being unusually calm. So this makes me wonder if rather than the Hippo, the Honey Bee is my totem animal. I haven’t dreamt about them, I just feel really calm around them…Any guidance appreciated.

  • from two three days every morning just when I wake up… a black big bee or honey bee kind of insect is coming. entering my room. from window. please suggested what is it signifying???
