Dreaming of Bees

Summertime is here! And hopefully that means you’re starting to see some bees out and about.  Bees are of great importance to the planet and humans, and thus the meaning of bee dreams can be of great significance in a person’s life.

According to Life Basics, these flying workhorses are “amongst the most important creatures to humans on Earth. These amazing insects pollinate over 80% of all flowering plants including 70 of the top 100 human food crops. One in three bites of food that we eat is derived from plants pollinated by bees.”

Pretty impressive right? So what does dreaming about bees say about your waking life?


Bees are often controlled and loyal to a single queen bee– And it follows that dreaming of bees may reflect a person’s inner-consciousness manifesting a feeling of being dominated in an aspect of his or her waking life.

On the other hand, the presence of a bee hive with active bees can reflect a person’s involvement or interest in contributing to a team or tight-knit community.  Friendships are often built upon partnerships and reliance.  This connection can build trust and strong bonds.  These actions are often exemplified by bees collaborating in large groups during the daily functions of an active hive.

Dreams that insinuate a bee or bees in a hand can signify good crop for a farmer or that general good fortune is in hand!

Aggressive or intimidating bees in a dream can represent an army or opposition force. A person that experiences the sensation of killing bees in a dream may be on the brink of annihilating a foe either physically as an army general on the verge of conquest or a metaphorical meaning such as winning a race against a great rival.

Like all dream interpretations, there is no right or wrong take-away from the experience of a bee or insect dream.  The memory or discussion of a dream can help express inner-feelings in a way that may be hindered in waking life.  It’s always good to learn from our dreams but not dwell or tie too much significance as we continue to grow our consciousness each day.
