take the first Step into a Journey and explore what
it means to be in the moment with mindfulness.
I make an intention to meditate (in silence) each morning among nature and most days I am joined at my side by my horse or the local wildlife (pigeon, yellowhammer, butterfly, mole).
Today it was a Bee who joined me and who felt so safe in the energy of my meditation place that it decided it could take the time to have a 'mindful' pollen meal.
Bees are incredibly intelligent and complex creatures, and we, as humans, can learn much from spending time with them.
Interacting with bees is a humbling experience - as you watch them you begin to really understand what a 'sense of community' is in a whole new way.
They are an excellent model for our communal relationships; where individuals work together to serve a single unit of communal consciousness for the benefit of all beings.
Bees also respond greatly to the energies that we put out. As any seasoned beekeeper will tell you, if you have positive thoughts and intentions, the bees will find a harmony with you - and you with them.
This is the purpose of practicing mindfulness in your life - to find a natural balance and harmony with all of nature, and the human world around you.
Can you make an intention to 'Bee' Mindful in your life this weekend?
