Bees sip honey from flowers and hum their thanks when they leave.
The gaudy butterfly is sure that the flowers owe thanks to him

(Rabindranath Tagore 1861 - 1941)

On day 2 in Rome as we were about to enter the Basilica’s cupola, we came across a bee relief sculpture. On day 3 the bees in the church at the Victor Emmanuel Church were a ‘sign’ to me…

What do bees mean? I have done a bit of research as to their meaning. I have decided that for 2012 the bee is going to be my Totem. It is also going to be my ‘wild’ year… ??

Bees have an ancient reputation as the bringers of order

Bees serve as images of the miraculous interconnectedness of life

Honey bees are a shamanic sign of passion, progress, and sexuality. They are also tied to joy and creativity

The Royal Bee Totem possesses the following virtues:
Messages from higher planes and consciousness
prophetic dreams and visions
productive hard work
sexual attraction
the power of giving back when taking
the ability to turn something unassuming into a wonderful creation
ability to enjoy and savour the sweetness of life
connection with the Earth and living things
divine messages
and realizing the fruit of one’s labour
