Bees are determined, focused, committed to their goals and a symbol of power, beauty and sacrifice.
Worker bees are devoted and motivated to provide for their hive and serve their queen. They work together and communicate using a unique dance to share information about the location of food.
Bees have the power to attack, harm or even kill a predator using their sacrificial sting, after which they will die. The queen is the only fertile female and her role is to mate with the drone (male) bees to expand the hive population. These small and powerful insects go through a lifespan of metamorphosis, and carry many significant roles in nature.
Once they reach adulthood, they have small comb-like bristles on their limbs that aid in cleaning and carrying pollen, their wing span and size significantly smaller in proportion to their body size, it was often thought to be a miracle as to how they can fly so efficiently, however it is due to the nature in which they choose to fly - by rapid and strong wing beats, that they can still achieve such heavy and arduous work loads each day.
We can find parallels in this bee teaching that no matter what you may appear to be like physically, that you are powerful beyond all rational measure, and that by taking a unique approach to achieving things instead of feeling inferior, having to fit a one-size-fits-all model or giving up altogether, you can tap into your personal and unique power in order to work towards common goals and desires.
