A couple of weeks ago my husband and I installed a package of bees into their home on our property. This was a something we had done annually many years ago that came to a halt with all of the moves that we had done over the past 6 years.
When we received our box of 40,000 new little friends, the first thought that came to mind was how amazing it was to feel the harnessed energy of some 80,000 wings vibrating in my hands.
Upon opening the box to let them exit in the dark of night you could sense the hush as the mystery of something new and unidentified was registered within the cardboard confines. It was a little unnerving.
The next day we set to transfer the contents of our package into the hive. We gently lifted, evaluated and transferred each frame into their new home hearing the audible shift in vibration as the speed of their wings changed as they went into protection mode. Upon completing the transfer we stood there in awe as we watched the scene and listened to the sounds of chaos transfer into the hum and movements of response, which eventually changed yet again as the movements slowed and their collective sound softened enough to distinguish the flight of single bees flying, setting and reorganizing.
It was pretty amazing.
Sound is incredibly telling and powerful. Many of you got that reminder as you experienced your first Kirtan a couple of weeks ago. Sound provides us with information, it channels into every every pore and fiber in the home of our bodies, and it has the ability to stir deep emotions. It opens us up to a different kind of listening and provides much needed healing.
While we are not suggesting to cozy up to a nest of bees, we would highly recommend and warmly invite you to this weekend’s Sound Bath with Tal. It is an incredible way to take time to witness, feel, explore and discover the powerful person that you are in a new way. Crystals bowls, gongs and other instruments are used to accompany your meditation while you relax and receive in a deeply calming environment.
We look forward to experiencing this beautiful time together!
