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….

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….

May Day

May Day is here and seeds are sown. The fire’s lit and bones are thrown. The Fairies fed and plans are made. Promises kept and offerings laid. The goats have called and the Snake’s left the Cave. The Particle is now becoming the Wave. The Trees have greened with the Shadow within. Now we dance…

Opening Your Heart – Listening to Bees

Beekeepers who are tuned in, realize that there is a paradigm shift occurring, a needed one, if we want to continue to work with our bees, apis mellifora.  In order to listen to your bees, a soft mindfulness and open heartedness is necessary.  The great thing is, if you listen to the sound of bees,…

Gratitude, Gardens and Lemniscates

It is so easy to get caught up in the distractions of the “demanding” world and forget that those demands can be stripped away, layer by layer, until you get to what really matters.  It is also easy to forget that the world in which we place our feet down each day, is full of…

Water for the Bees

Creating a water offering for bees is a fun way to get involved in helping bees and it is only limited by your your imagination!  I like to imagine myself as a bee and think what would I like to land on, how would I want it to look, and what types of extra medicines…

Tracks of Life

The Woods knew.  I was on my way to make an offering at the Fairy Tree that was Kissed by the Winds, but she was no longer there.  Not in the way of the rest of the trees whose breath was slowed with the cold; but her dead body was hacked into pieces by a…
