I was sitting on the Earth facing the sun with eyes closed. My hands were in Buddhi Mudra near the shoulders, a perch. As I was breathing deeply I felt a gentle being walking on my left hand-around the palm, under the thumb and pinky, on my fingers-and I kept breathing deeply, eyes closed. Finally I opened my eyes and looked and there was a Bee. I kept breathing deep then noticed two thought paths come to mind: Fear and Love. In that moment I had a choice whether to fear the sting, the hurt, the bee dying OR love the touch, the connection, harmony in sharing the space. So I began mentally saying “I am peace, I am love” and sending that vibration to the bee. It was going so well until with my right hand I slowly picked up my phone and pointed the camera at the bee to get a picture and the bee got very agitated and flittered all around my left hand and head. I apologized for disrupting the harmony...Bees can represent community and just before this happening I sent a message to a dear friend writing “I visualize a day where all beings walk in hand in love and compassion.”
Thank you, dear Bee, for being on this journey with me.
