Bee Spirit Animal

If you’ve ever been stung by a bee, you understand the outsized power of these small yet mighty creatures. But if you’ve ever dipped your finger in a jar of warm, farm-fresh honey, you’re also well aware of the singular magic they hold — the alchemical wizardry to turn pollen into sweet, liquid gold. 

It’s this inscrutable magic that has made bees a source of wonder and worship since time immemorial. From the Melissae bee priestesses of Greece to the ancient Celtic storytellers who viewed these fuzzy flyers as intermediates between the earthly and spirit realms.

Here at SG, bees continue to play a special role in our lives, our practices, and the ways we look to support and create space for our community. We look to bees as both guides and conduits as we channel the mysteries of the natural world and strive to foster our own magical hives.

It reminds us of the significance of our hive and the role we play in the greater cosmic picture. Bee magic is all about manifesting more sweetness in your life and connecting with the natural world to become your most empowered self.
