Beeing Insulated

As I was getting ready for the cold winter months in New England, my thoughts and concerns were for my bees.  One of my colonies is still in am 8 frame langstroth hive and it certainly is not insulated enough for the cold.  There are more opinions on insulating bee hives than there are types…

Entering into Relationship

When I entered into relationship with the bees on my land, the land responded. The land flourished for two reasons; I planted more flowers and herbs and the land now had a partner, not just a gardener. The first reason is easier to explain. I wanted more food for my bees, plus I love gardening…

A Call to Beeing

“Well, you got it done by May 26th, just like your dream, ” says Jesse as he comes up behind me, bringing me back from my partial trance like state as I am sitting cross-legged on the ground, staring in amazement at the entrance of my first hive. “Huh? What do you mean?” I ask…

Creation

When I put my antennae up and asked for the guidance of Bee during these trying times, I received a message.  This is my attempt at translating that message into words.  The message is much more clear and beautiful than I can paint in words, so I ask you to soften your mind, much like…

InBeeTween

There is no death. There is NO death. That is what the bees want me to know as I wake up from my dream and I am still in hypnagogia…there is no death. This strong message comes to me days before my dad passes, as if a hug from a friend, knowing you are struggling….

The Time In Between

I hold my own breath, counting the time in between his breaths; 17, 18, 19 and then a soft breath, followed by a crescendo and then decrescendo of breaths before another gap. Nine breaths to be exact. The first and last are almost imperceptible, but they count. I figure it was such a struggle for…

Balanced Scales

The full moon is shining brightly.  In my calendar, it is Balancing Moon and it certainly feels as if things that have needed balancing, are finally coming to a place of equilibrium.  Equal; balanced.  Libra; scales.  It does make sense that the constellation of the zodiac representing balance, is the only one depicted by an…

Cosmic Wheel

Newly made comb is lovingly placed in my head to store that which is without, within. My beautiful cells reach out beyond to gather cosmic materials made usable upon this plane through transmutation in earthly bodies and processes. Tendrils of intelligent light extend past the family of phoebes and community of maples, past the family…

A Trip Over the Rainbow

A vacation can be a trip, in the same sense as a “trip” with the help of a sacred herb, medicine or drink, if you treat it as such.  A vacation can take you out of your regular world and into an altered state, if you allow your personal membrane to be open to what…

Secrets

It was amazing to walk outside in the sun after a week of rain.  It was the gentle rain that is good for growth; of seeds and soul alike.  As good is it felt, just like the newly planted seeds, my soul was craving the sun so give me a new goal to stretch towards….
