Beehive

Beehive – Sarah

The symbol that best represents my spiritual path is a bee skep, which is what most people think of as a traditional bee hive. Bees are sacred to many deities, including my patrons Pan and Brigid. Bees are representative of the Divine and religion in many ways. Bees exist in diversity all over the world, just like religions. Mankind and bees exist in a symbiotic relationship. Mankind cannot survive without bees, and some bee species cannot survive without mankind’s help. In my opinion, mankind cannot survive without the Divine, but deities are also somewhat dependent upon us as well. The sweetness of honey and the pain and sometimes death from a sting is representative of the Divine’s light and dark nature. Both the sweet and the sting can be beneficial and harmful, just as light and dark can be. Our lives work efficiently like a bee hive when we listen to our deities, but our lives can turn into the mayhem of a swarming or collapsing hive when we shut our ears to their wisdom. A bee hive is also industrious and productive, which are two things that we should all strive to be in our religious and mundane lives. I also chose a beehive as a nod to my Wiccan path, where traditionally covens would “hive off” when they became too large, to my Christian past since Celtic monks often lived in bee hive shaped dwellings, and to my Southern heritage because we all know at least one lady who still sports a beehive hair-do.
