Ambrosia or "Spiritual Nourishment" or "Food of the Gods" was created from an image of a bee on a gum tree flower. Gum Tree is also known as Eucalyptus. The photo was taken from a massive tree in full bloom in Sausalito while on a trip with my Love...the first trip we took together.
Although Eucalyptus originated in Australia, it has made its way to all corners of the world. They have great healing and medical benefits. The essential oils that are distilled from the leaves have too many medical uses to list here, but one of the primary uses is in aromatherapy.
Literally, the name of this tree means "wrapped, covered." its oil was used in the Ancient Mystery Schools to wrap the aura in balancing vibrations, for they recognized that knowledge could bring an unbalanced awakening of the psychic energies of the individual. Its energies are highly protective and dynamically healing on all levels. Its influence penetrates both the physical and subtle energies of the individual, and it stimulates an opening of the brow chakra.
Eucalyptus fragrance is very soothing to highly charged emotional states.
Eucalyptus trees are some of the tallest on the planet. Staffs and wands of eucalyptus assist us in walking in the dream world. They help stimulate conscious out of body experiences. Eucalyptus alerts us to the importance of our dreams. It can awaken the individual to full consciousness while in the dream state (lucid dreaming). It clarifies dreams and balances emotions. These dreams help to bring out healing energies and an understanding of the causes of various illnesses and imbalances within our life. For those dealing with nightmares, it is one of the most calming. Four or five drops of eucalyptus oil in a bowl of water next to the bed, facilitates deeper and more restful sleep.
Those to whom the eucalyptus comes as a totem or messenger should also study the koala. This marsupial has the ability to eat the eucalyptus leaves without being affected by its poison. This animal as a totem--is usually a signal to slow down and detoxify our life. They hold the promise of relief, and this is reflected in the tree as well. *Nature-Speak/Ted Andrews
Eucalyptus is one of the most universal and versatile of essential oils. Some of its many properties include analgesic, antiseptic, deodorant, expectorant, and vermifuge (anti-parasitic).
Bees are the symbol of fertility and sexuality. Its honeycomb, a hexagon, is the symbol of the heart and represents the sweetness of life found within our own heart. It is also the symbol of the sun and all its energies. In "Ambosia" we see the energy of the sun being used to transform and create.
The bee reminds us to extract the honey of life and to make our lives fertile (productive) while the sun shines. No matter how great the dream is, there is the promise of fulfillment if we pursue our dreams.
If a Bee has shown up in your life, examine your own productivity.
Are you doing all you can to make your life more fertile? Are you busy enough?
Are you making time to savor the honey of life and not becoming a workaholic?
The Bee is the symbol of accomplishing the impossible.
Aerodynamically, its body is too large for its wings and should not be able to fly.
Although now we understand how it does fly (high rate of wing movement),
the Bee remains a symbol of accomplishing anything you put your mind to.
