The bee dream according to dream psychology is associated with the threat of being hurt or stung in waking life. What does it mean to dream of a bee? I'm Flo, I am here to help you unlock the spiritual and psychological meaning of the dream.
It's important to consider older dream dictionary meanings (such as Zola's Encyclopedia of Dreams -1963) as follows:

Is this dream about a bee good or bad?
It depends on the dream contents. Spiritually, the iconic bees are furry-bodied and come with a spiritual message in our dreams, they are beautiful creative flying beasts – who work hard. Was the dream positive or negative? If your dream is positive, the air is filled with magical opportunities when bees come into your dreams, the buzz is a sign that opens the doors to new energy. Remember, in real life bees have a need to survive the winter frost and get to the summer months when the light shines down on the bee. Questions you may need to ask yourself is: What do you need to survive? How can you ensure the light is shining down at you? Is a new start is on the horizon? The actual details of your dream must be taken into account in order for me to fully decode it. So let's go.
What is the bee dream spiritual warning?
Bees often appear in dreams when we are doing something we love or surrounded by people we love. The bee according to the druids comes in dreams for you to appreciate things more in life. Appreciation is an act of blessings in and of itself. It is a remarkable recognition of what we have, and it makes us feel good about ourselves. Seeing that our cup doesn't overflow will increase our vibrations. We raise our vibration by serving others.
Did you know that the beekeeper uses smoke in the hives to calm down bees? Normally, this does not affect the queen as she hides behind her workers. Symbolically, seeing a bee in a dream can mean you are hiding among the smoke. We all live in fog and smoke. The bee is encouraging you to think of someone or something that you are grateful for. It is only then, that we can feel love and return to our hearts by being grateful.
What is the general dream meaning of a bee?
In essence, you can see from the above that bees show that life takes on new positive approaches based on how we respond to emotion. To dream of a flying bee shows that you can successfully express yourself in difficult situations. However, it can also mean that people perceive you in a negative manner. Growing and developing interpersonal skills within your life will help you. If you find yourself stung by a bee, this is possibly a warning that others may hurt your feelings. If you are attacked by a swarm of bees, this can indicate there is a situation that is out of your control. To be attacked by more than one bee is a dream associated with being suspicious. A swarm of bees (that are not attacking you) denotes a pleasant and great time with friends and social engagements. If a bee stings you in your dream, the omen is good, especially in business matters. If the emergence of the bees is from a cocoon or from hatching, then this dream is associated with trying to improve yourself.
To see working bees in your dreams indicates continued success and a happy state. Fatalities are intimated if you see them in profusion. To see bees simulating death or dying, foretells unhappiness caused by illness. To kill a bee means an alarming, but not fatal illness or accident. Dreaming of honey indicates that you need to sort yourself out and make sure you are heard by others. If you can see honey in your dream, then this shows sweetness, happiness, and joy.
If a healthy person dreams that he or she is harvesting honey, it is a symbol of financial gain. The dream featuring a quiet bee in the sense that you are not stung by the bee indicates that you will be lucky in business and you will get wealthy. A girl or woman dreaming of bees will have luck in love, as the dream foretells a man bringing a lot of joy and doing you much good. Dreaming of bees could have negative meanings if the bees sting you, as this indicates conflict with people around you.
Love is the highest vibration… The bee is about nectar and transferring pollen between flowers. This is connected to our own spiritual advancement, remember this is not measured by one’s outward powers, but only by the depth of your own internal thoughts. This dream also shows that you can successfully express yourself in difficult situations that you encounter. However, this can also mean that people perceive you negatively.
Dream psychology and bees
Sigmund Freud was a famous dream physiologist in the 1930s. He wrote at length about what dreams mean psychologically. There is an account in Sigmund Freud’s writings about a woman who awakened one night to a dream of being stung by a bee. It was described as a complete nightmare. This was further illustrated in a Spanish oil painting on wood by Salvador Dali. So what did Freud say? It was believed that the presence and stinging of the bee during our sleep is connected to our own evolution as human beings. and the sensation of the attacking bee can be associated with our collective thought of being "attacked in waking life."

You may be rewarded for your efforts. Honey in symbolic terms represent favors for others.

What is the spiritual dream interpretation of a bee?
Every bee from a spiritual context has the inner power to evoke strong feelings and associations in people during the dream state. Think about it! These associations are natural and universal, and they often go beyond the literal meaning of an actual bees symbol. For example, the colour black and yellow is associated with darkness, nature, spring, fertility, and growth. Similarly, the black face of a bees denotes deep symbolic meaning that goes beyond its literal appearance. The almond-shaped body with fur usually symbolizes youth, happiness, innocence, and an optimistic approach to life. An almond-shaped insect symbolizes wisdom and wisdom gained through experience.
Bees possess wonderful working traits along with a great need to protect the hive. Historical Egyptians associated the bee with knowledge, regeneration, and working to rule. Bees are also a symbol of royal families, the Merovingian monarchs have been laid to rest with golden bees put into their coffins. The freemasons use the bee and the beehive among it's designs. This is associated with freemasonry being the queen bee and the workers creating a hive through hard work. Napoleon associated the bee with regeneration.
There is no question that bees have a firm place in the spiritual world. In reality, it isn't just the bee that may turn up in dreams but you could see a beehive, honey, or the actual honeycomb. The bee from a spiritual perspective represents rebirth and order within your life. To witness a swarm of bees represents the importance of power over relationships of the heart. This dream symbolizes your work situation and the balance between your job and your relationships of the heart. The additional symbols within this dream often indicate that you have been trying to balance these two key areas of your life. If the queen is featured in your dream, this demonstrates the need to feel freedom, such as freedom of choice and freedom of expression. Here are the x spiritual meanings of a bee dream.
1. Build your career like the bee
Bees are naturally connected to hard work and commerce. Think of the term "busy as a bee.” The key message is that by working hard you will reap the rewards. If bees sting then someone will be critical to you in the coming weeks – who can sting you? If the bees are chasing you in the dream this can indicate someone wants to hurt you and may also do so through words. In order to understand this dream, we need to look at what bees do. Did you know that Bees produce a third of our food, which is dependent on insect pollination? So I am here to answer the question of what it means if you dream of bees? I have produced a Youtube video and this informative article. Please scroll down to read your specific dream meaning and watch the video below in order to understand what this sacred bee means to you.
2. Deep work when you are distracted
A bee normally appears when you are distracted at work. First, Honeybees make honey, we work and make money. The two are interconnected. Work expresses itself naturally through money. Many people do not believe in them and do not believe they deserve to be rich. But why? We often don’t really think about being rich past “I would like to be rich.” we never put the focus to work out how we can get there as human beings. Hives are full of activity, the bees working tirelessly to make the honey.
3. Reap the rewards of your creativity
Bees in dreams help us fall deeper into our own creative power. If you are creating something in life this is a sign that your inner dreams and your ideas may TURN into reality. This is a great time to tune into your own success and happiness in life. Bees are scared creators. In order to understand this dream, we need to look at what bees do. Bees pollinate plants so that plants can reproduce, and that really is the bottom line. Creation is the essence of what bees supply - as well of course - honey. When we think of honey spiritually this is sweet, sticky and a substance that enables us in life to get what we want.
4. Do what you want: Discover the perfect career
The bee will work hard and never stop, it is a sign that you need to find your perfect career. The bee's energy will survive even if its body is destroyed. Each of us can move between the physical and non-physical worlds as part of the bee of life. I’m here to share with you the spiritual evidence of bees and beehives in dreams. The bible mentions bees and honey, there are many references to dreams in the bible and even if you are not religious, it is important to understand that messages from spirit are sometimes given to us in our dreams.
The first question I need to ask you is how significant was the bee or beehive in the dream? We cannot live fully unless we accept that all possibilities are unlimited and we are one with everything. Miracles are part of that. I am going to focus more on the bees spiritually and the beehive from a dream context. There is so much to say about your dream and I want to first let you know that you are not here by chance. I truly believe you have found my magical website for a reason.
5. Bees and beehive in dreams can represent hidden miracles
We have been raised in a world where everything is measured and judged by material wealth. We are able to measure what we have, what our income is, what clothes, what car we drive and finally what we look like. We might feel incomplete or insufficient if we follow this system. After all, we die with nothing. There is nothing on this earth we take with us to the next life apart from our memories. Our soul creates our inner story, which tells us we don't deserve money or miracles. However, miracles are not unlimited. If we don't receive a miracle of money in life, it means that we are denying our soul. This is unfair. This is the time for you after the bee dream to make a change. This is the time to change the narrative and create a life that is fulfilling for you full of wealth - not only spiritually but materially as well. We can all have money if we try. I am a believer in positivity, in my view, there is no limit to what you can accomplish.
What does dreaming of a beehive mean?
Dreaming of a beehive with lots of bees is a sign of abundance in your house, a united family, and a fruitful and fertile year ahead. A beehive is a sign of substantial income growth. Seeing bees surrounding a beehive is a sign of happiness in love, and luck in business. To dream of a beehive means you will overcome current troubles. If you dream that you are working in the hive, and the bees come out of it, then there are some problems you are struggling to solve. Dreams featuring a beehive in full activity predict good business, wealth, and a good gain.
What does dreaming of a swam of bees mean?
Dreaming about a swarm of bees could be symbolic of hard work or having too much on your hands to do. If you dream about a queen bee, it could be symbolic of a controlling or dominant woman. In a dream, if a bee stings you, it could be an indicator of hurtful words that someone made to you in your waking life. In case of an accident and the queen dies, the workers will select one of the new breeds and feed it with special food, the royal jelly. This will enable the larva to develop into a fertile queen.
A swarm of bees means happiness, but if the bees are hiving around the beehive, it suggests prudence. Swarming bees mean richness, gain and luck in many of the things you do. Seeing flying bees could mean troubles, but if the bees are flying around you, this foretells happiness, luck in love, and overcoming your difficulties.
What does being attacked by a bee mean in a dream?
As long as civilisation has existed, people have dreamed of being attacked. Dreams of bees attacking us often reflect our relationship with others, highlighting self-doubt and self-criticism. For us to avoid falling prey to the bee attack symbolically, we must think about the dream significance, we must silence our minds and not perceive ourselves as under attack in waking life. Bees are territorial and can often be found near human habitation in waking life. What is interesting is if they feel threatened, bees will often sting to defend their nests, especially if people are close to their hive. In dreams, this does not occur as it does in reality. The scene could be similar to a movie scene where you run from a swarm of bees or see yourself getting stung by them. First of all, it is rare for people to die from a swam of bee attacks in the real world, but in the dream world, anything is possible. Think about syrup and water and how sweet it tastes. Do you need sweetening right now? Ideas could be constantly coming into your life. We must choose the right path. If you escape the bee attack remember that anything is possible. This is the best time to focus on what you want and not what you don’t want. You can meditate on your goals. This will help you tune in to your higher self and give you all the guidance that you need to get there.
If you have encountered a bee attack during a dream then this can indicate a powerful symbol. The spritely bee in your dream can be an answer to your calls for a new direction in life. The bee attacking is connected to escaping change in waking life. Are you escaping change? A bee attack is often connected to the end of something, and new things are coming in your life. When we dream our own internal will is often suspended and I speak about this quite a bit in my dream meanings, therefore, making the mind vulnerable to its own imagination. Unbridled imagination can make the mind look like a monstrous shark, even the slightest attack in real life can bring about the fear of being stung or attacked by bees in the dream state.
In waking life, a bee can be seen and dodged and they rarely attack. In sleep, the mind may lose the internal will or reason. One might say, are more supersensitive to hidden perceptions which are awakened. The sound of a kettle whistling can be magnified to become a bee buzzing as the mind regains consciousness. The waking mind can see hours ahead of the sleeping mind and is extremely sensitive to external sounds and light.
What I am not saying here is that this dream of being attacked by a bee is about you hearing things in your sleep but it could have been triggered by this. If we turn to the older dream books being attacked by bees in ancient times was associated with being attacked in business or a work situation. As bees represent work this is a plausible meaning. If you are afraid of the bees if they are attacking is in 1930s dream dictionaries connected to a journey or that you may find yourself in trouble with an enterprise. To dream of seeing another person being attacked by bees is connected to your own internal thoughts and self-doubt which can lead to a destructive mindset, especially if you allow these feelings to stay in your mind for too long. What is this dream telling you? It is important to push negative thoughts from your waking mind and replace them with positive ones.
What does it mean to dream of a bee sting or being stung by a bee?
If you get stung during your dream it could possibly symbolize your stinging emotions or perhaps your current subconscious mind. You could possibly think that a partnership at work is not going well. The bee in a destructive mode, such as stinging you or others in often connected to a work situation, which has left a person feeling 'stung'. To dream of bees biting you signifies action. Although a bee stinging you might be unpleasant for you, the bee will eventually die due to the sting. In this capacity, the bee might stand for sacrificing oneself regarding an item you treasure.
What does a Beehive mean in a dream?
As outlined already, the bee often represents hard work. Having dreams about bees working in the beehive signifies productivity and problems at work that needs time and patience in order to solve. Bees work in full cooperation, working with each other so that their own hive continues to be undamaged and also successful. Bees might point to working in a team in order to be successful.
Many of you have contacted me about what bees mean in your dream. Bees are related to ants and wasps and we all know they sting and fly. They are so busy, especially when it comes to pollination, the production of beeswax and honey. Before I analyze dreams about bees, let's relate some interesting symbols about bees.
Simply because you are on earth - just like the bee, you are entitled to wealth and miracles. To me, miracles are what we all are. It's about thinking and, ultimately, about changing your life. It doesn't need to be an extreme external event. Money can be yours. It is part of life itself. Simply put, a miracle of thought when it comes to work and money can be described as a shift of perception. It's a change in our way of seeing the world.
Creating a sense of wholeness and richness in our lives can come from a subtle inner shift. It is impossible to compare miracles with one another. Our thoughts can be changed by the signs we see in our dreams. Changing our minds is a lesser miracle. Let go of the measurement system and let things flow naturally. Then you may see beyond yourself. If your mind creates your reality, then you can embrace this and change things. The bee defines beauty and is happy to include and exclude working bees. You can create space for miracles by raising your vibration. By creating space in your life to receive love from the universe, you create the conditions for it. You are reminding yourself daily that you deserve support and miracles by creating a spiritual practice.
What does it mean to see a bee flying in a dream?
Often, we can feel overwhelmed when a bee is flying by us in real life, the bee often comes into our home with a hidden excitement. I know when I see a bee in my house during a dream (which has happened a few times) I feel somewhat overwhelmed with a sense of connection and my heart opens wide.
What is the biblical interpretation of a dream of bees?
There is many references to scripture in the bible in reference to bees, honey, dreams and beehives. For example Acts 2:17, Job 33:14, Ecclesiastes 5:7. I won't go into too much detail but from the scripture dreaming of either bees or beehives can indicate that your spirit will see visions and all men will dream in order to understand life. It is thought, that God is the third source of our dreams. If we look at this deeper, Daniel, the prophet, calls a dream from God "true" dreams. This is also associated with the fact our bee or beehive dream is inspired by God to help us - for us to raise our vibrations and listen. These types of dreams are what God desires for people as seen in (Job 33,14-16) A swarm of honeybees according to the bible is a sign of presumptuous behaviour against an overwhelming enemy. A bee is a positive omen and honey is referenced as the promised land. This is a positive omen.
What does it mean to hear a buzzing sound in your dream?
We all know bees buzz. This is known as vibration. Remember bees have this natural sound, this is caused by the movement of the wings - and did you know bees have four wings. The contraction of the wing results in vibrational sound. There's a feeling of recognition on a soul (vibrational level). In dreams, maybe you can feel their light, and your soul recognizes that the vibrations are high pitched and as the bees flap the wings 230 beats per second it is telling you to sour high. The bee is in a state of high vibration. But what does this mean? It indicates why it is so easy to love and be loved by others as we are all energy. The universe operates on energy. You may have been worried about seeing the bee in the dream, remember that fear is also an energy. If the dream involved the bee being aggressive, chasing you or making you feel uncomfortable this is about your current life. At times, fear can make us feel anxious or push us to the other side. This occurs because fear (fear of getting stung) is the energy which is the furthest from our natural state.
So what is the message here? It is to raise your vibration. When you do this in waking life you are less likely to dwell on the things that make you feel somewhat uncomfortable. If you feel uncomfortable, you will experience a shift in your thoughts and feelings that helps you return to your natural state. So, in a nutshell, the key here is to raise your vibrational levels.
For example, I enjoy writing (obviously) and walking. I do these every day. Both of these activities bring me great joy and excitement. I feel an intense rush of happiness, whether I'm writing on passing the lambs in the countryside. I feel like I have everything and I can do anything and it clears my mind. This state of pure delight allows me to connect to possibilities, I do feel these activities raise my vibration and attunes to the universe. I can direct my energy to what is working for me, and let go of what is not. I can set goals and achieve them if I have a high vibration and the buzz in your dream is all about this. Raising your vibrations.
Bees show us to develop our communication skills
Growing and developing interpersonal skills within your life is an area that will help you. If you find yourself stuck by a bee then this is possibly a warning that others may hurt your feelings. If you are attacked by a swarm of bees then this can indicate there is a situation which is out of your control. In essence, bees show that life takes on new positive approaches based on how we respond to emotion.
The difficulty in trying to get someone to do this, obviously; you must make sure you ask someone nicely. To be attacked by more than one bee is associated with being attacked by others. If the emergence of the bees is from a cocoon, that is to say, the hatching, then this dream is associated with trying to better yourself.
To see working bees in your dreams indicate continued success and a happy state. To see bees dying foretells unhappiness caused by illness. To kill a bee means a problem but this will be solved. To dream of honey then you need to sort yourself out and make sure you are heard by others. If you can see honey (or a honey pot) in your dream then this shows sweetness, happiness, and joy. Eating honey is a great omen, it is very positive.
Bees denote a pleasant and great time with friends and social engagements.
Dreaming of a beehive with lots of bees is a sign of abundance in your house, a united family, and a fruitful and fertile year ahead. A beehive is a sign of substantial income growth. Seeing bees surrounding a beehive is a sign of happiness in love, and luck in business. To dream of a beehive means you will overcome current troubles, I will go further into detail in this dream meaning below but this is a positive sign. If you dream that you are working in the hive, and the bees come out of it, then there are some problems you are struggling to solve. Dreams featuring a beehive in full activity predict good business, wealth, and a good gain.
A swarm of bees means happiness, but if the bees are flying around the beehive, it suggests prudence. Swarming bees mean richness, gain and luck in many of the things you do. Seeing flying bees could mean troubles, but if the bees are flying around you, this foretells happiness, luck in love, and overcoming your difficulties. Listed below I have gone into more detailed symbols.
What does it mean to dream of a beehive?
A bee (as a symbol) often represents hard work. Having dreams about bees working in the beehive signifies productivity and problems at work that needs time and patience in order to solve. Bees work in full cooperation, working with each other so that their own hive continues to be undamaged and also successful. Bees might point to working in a team in order to be successful. Bees that produce honey are known as honeybee.
Honeybees don’t always use a beehive they sometimes use rocks, caves and hollow trees. These can all be featured in your dream. The beehive is the hub of all activity, the hive is normally a honeycomb. Each bee has a specific role to play in the hive. There are drones (male bees), workers, and queen bees. Workers are 85% of the hive. So what does this all mean spiritually? Turning back the clock bees in agent Egypt were created and this is the first record of the beehive (650 BC) during this time honey was often stored in jars and the hives themselves were made of clay. The reason I mention this is that beehives are an ancient sign. This is a sign that you are being asked what your role is in life. It is a spiritual sign.
I know I have covered this, but I want to cover this again. This is a positive dream, a beehive, it is a great dream omen. It means that you are currently satisfied with the life you are leading. It could be that the salary you earn is greater and thus, it is manifesting itself in the dream. Everything in your life is going in the right direction and you are pleased with everything. The beehive in dreams is about your colony, it is about how you tune into the universe. Bees are considered in ancient Egyptian text as light workers. Are you a light worker? Lightworkers are people and animals who wish to make a positive impact on the world. Before they came to Earth, light workers consciously chose to be here to usher in a new age of truth, peace, and love. At this moment, the universe is also responding to the call of need. You chose to live a life of integrity, love, and purpose before you came to this world. You are responding to the call of the universe by changing your life for the better. What is the significance of the beehive in your dream?
What is the significance of seeing a queen bee in your dreams?
The queen bee in dreams (especially in connection with the beehive) is about control. The queen bee's purpose is to suppress her bee workers or justify bullying the workers or even make them worry about her. The queen bee is vital to the workings of the beehive, she produces chemical scents to attract the bees and lays the eggs. Normally bees know that the queen is their Mother due to the smell. Sometimes the queen bee leaves the beehive and a beekeeper might try to introduce a new queen. In dreams, we can sometimes see the queen bee and this is about our own beliefs and how we as humans “control” our life.
It is important to understand how this control can affect our belief system. Beliefs allow us to transform our reality by connecting us with transcendent dimensions. Sometimes the queen bee is killed if she is lazy or just not liked, then replaced. Ok, the reason why I mention all of this is that the queen bee in dreams gives us hope, belief and inspiration, which are essential tools to overcome the doubts and confusion that so often plague our lives. But we need to control these and not be controlled by others like the queen bee sometimes finds herself in. Human history has been shaped by religious and spiritual beliefs. Yet, we have very little understanding of how these beliefs work at the psychological, biological and behavioural levels. It is a positive dream to see the queen and connects with your belief systems.
What do beehives mean as dream symbols?
The bee or beehive represents rebirth and order within your life. To witness a swarm of bees generally represents the importance of power over love affairs and other relationships of the heart. Most people in dreams conjure up visions of being attacked or chased by the black and yellow flying insect. A honey bee colony, bee sting or seeing a large swarm. This dream symbolizes your work-life situation and the balance between your job and your relationships of the heart. The symbols within this dream often indicate that you have been trying to balance these two key areas of your life. If the queen is featured in your dream then this demonstrates the need to feel freedom, freedom of choice and freedom of expression.
What do dreams of honey mean?
Honey is an organic sweetener, this is the product of the bees' work. Honey originates from plant pollen that bees gather and take to the hive. Dreaming of honey could be considered a symbol of involving change for the better, or associated with alchemy--taking something--a relationship, a project, a work objective, or maybe even a goal and changing the situation into something better. Honey may also signify an incentive with regard to your work. You may be rewarded for your efforts.
What does it mean to dream of a bee sting?
If you get stung during your dream it could possibly symbolize your stinging emotions or perhaps your current subconscious mind. You could possibly think that a partnership at work is not going well. The bee is in a destructive mode, such as stinging you or others in often connected to a work situation, which has left a person feeling 'stung'. To dream of bees biting you signifies action.

- Queen: The queen is the boss who runs the hive. It is the duty of the queen to lay eggs that will produce the next generation of bees. She also produces chemicals to altar the behaviour of the other bees in the hive.
- Workers: The workers refer to the female bees whose main work is to forage for food that is nectar from flowers and pollen, she protects and builds the hive, and circulates and cleans the air via beating her wings. The bees you see flying outside the hive are normally the workers.

What do bees represent in a dream?
I have already covered this above, but there is one more thing I wish to mention. Bees have a special organ in their brains that’s called the “homing bundle”. This organ plays a big part in helping bees find their way back to their hives. In life, we can sometimes feel like we’re lost. We might feel as though we’re not on the right path or we don’t know where we’re going. This can make us feel helpless and hopeless. However, this feeling doesn’t have to last forever. Are you feeling lost right now?

What does bee aggression mean in dreams?
Bullying is the first resort in bees which are less socially advanced and have a clear correlation between increased aggression and ovarian development. This can indicate that you have people around you that are maybe bullying you, which could symbolically sting you. The queen bee in particular is connected to the act of aggression. To dream a queen chases toward you is interesting dream symbolism, the queen bees are naturally aggressive fertile workers in an attempt to force them to lay eggs. Honeybee queen bees release a hormone that inhibits worker ovarian growth. Therefore, aggression towards honeybees is only an option. The queen bee is a bully and makes her workers work through bullying. Can this be connected to a workplace problem for you? Once the nest reaches a certain number of workers, the queen is unable to bully all of them at once. Some of the larger workers get ovaries and start laying eggs. The queen responds by spending time in the beehive - searching for eggs she didn't lay and then eating them, not a very nice thing to do of the queen bee!
What does it mean if bees are stinging during your dream?
Protecting yourself from stings has been a defence mechanism for millions of years. Although it's not possible to properly describe bee poison, it is clear and odourless. It also contains around 88% water which I guess you did not even know. The bees venom compound encompasses complicated chemistry. In total, there are at least 18 pharmacologically relevant components, including many enzymes, peptides, and amines. In dreams, bee stings can at times represent that you will be “shocked” into creative focus.
I’ve read many people’s dreams whereby bees stinging have chased or followed them. In the bee venom one of the small proteins, melittin, accounts for about half the venom's dried weight in the venom, in turn, this hydrolyzes cell membranes and causes changes in permeability. So, when we are stung this is responsible for the pain. However, other components work with it. Hyaluronidase is a component that causes cell membrane changes and allows the venom spread easily. Anaphylactic shock can be caused by other components in the sting victim, ultimately, this is why most deaths from bee stings occur in hypersensitive people.
I know this might not be too connected to your sting bee dream but it is important to understand what happens in waking life. In essence, a single sting is usually enough to cause death and happens within an hour. If you die in the dream from a bee sting (or someone else) it is normally a spiritual sign that someone will cause challenges in the coming months. To dream of carrying an epi-pen then denotes you are looking for a way out of a problem as if you “magically” want a solution.

What does it mean to dream of a honeybee?
As I have already mentioned there are around 27 types of bees. In your dream you could have seen any one of these, it is normally impossible to know which bees you have seen during your dream - as they all look similar. The Western Honeybee (Apis Mellifera) is perhaps the best-known bee and many people have contacted me with dreams of the honeybee and often confuse the honeybee with bees. So if you believe that the honeybee is the bee you had seen in your dream then this is a positive omen. Most people don't know much about how socially-connected the honeybee is, and this is the key branch of meaning connected with your dream.
This bee is one of the few semi-domesticated insects, the history of the honeybee can be applied to this dream meaning. If you think about the honeybee we can incorporate the elements that may be present in this dream: honey, beeswax, crop pollination and rejuvenation. Turning to older historic meanings of the honeybee we should turn to old rock paintings, dating back to around 8000 BC in Spain, which show a honey bee on a cliff. In addition, a chemical analysis of prehistoric pottery shows that beeswax was used across Europe at least 6600 BC. Turning back to Babylonian and Egyptian times honeybees were important. One of the Pharaoh's titles was "King of Bees", and beekeeping is documented in temples and tombs dating back to 2300 BC. The earliest known honey sample dates back to 1000 BC and was actually found in an Egyptian tomb. It was supposedly still edible thousands of years later, having been kept in darkness in the tomb. So why is this important? It can indicate that this is an ancient symbol of bringing sweetness to life.
What does it mean to dream of a swarm of bees?
In waking life, a large number of bees can lead to poisoning, which can result in death for non-hypersensitive people. This would require between 500 and 1500 stings to cause the poisoning. Bee venom (in small quantities) is safe for humans. Apitherapists say that bee venom can treat the following chronic injuries: Bursitis, tendinitis, and tendinitis. Others have used the venom for bee stings to help with hypertension, asthma, Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and scar tissue removal, eczema, and other skin conditions. Although there isn't any scientific evidence that bee venom can treat these conditions, there are still some benefits to using it. There is another important spiritual message in this dream and that is - mindfulness which has a theoretical influence on your bee dream. This is because mindfulness mimics emotions if you dream of being attacked by the bees.

It is hard to remember any dream, even more so if you are trying to recall the bee during your dream. Bees as I am sure you know are colored in yellow, orange, and black.

What does it mean to see bees flying or collecting honey in dreams?
Flowers are the source of nectar for bees. You may have seen these in your dream bees buzzing around the flowers or the sky in the dream - and it is such a beautiful sight. When we see a bee in real life flying around flowers - they are hovering with their wings at a near-vertical angle. Because of their wings and their body shape, they can collect the nectar from the flowers with very little effort. When humans decide to collect a lot of nectar, they know they can gain a lot of honey without actually doing a hard job. Think about this for a moment.
This dream of seeing bees in their natural habitat is about collecting what you need in life. Similarly, when we decide to dream bigger and bigger, we are actually collecting a lot of honey without having to exert any effort at all. The honey in this case is what goals you have in life. We all need to think of our goals and how we can use these to become better people. Also, I believe dreams can be a place to connect with the spirits of those who have passed on. No matter how close we were in our lives, dreaming about those who have died is always powerful. Do we feel nostalgic or longing for them? Or are they trying to tell us something? Are they trying to tell us something? Is it just a way for them to say they are there? Are they trying to comfort us? Warn us? Connecting is the next step in understanding our dreams.

It means you trust your natural enemies to know that people can sometimes be dangerous. It is in essence a time when you need to believe and have courage against the opposition. You have to chase what you want, just like the bee chases pollen. Sometimes, it takes courage to pursue what you want. Fear of failure can be a result of doing so. This is a problem you may struggle with. If so, you should work harder in life.

A completely black bee seen in dreams can be connected to building something in life that is important and moving away from the difficulties in life.
Black bees are connected to our own hidden and dark thoughts from a symbolic perspective. Black is the color associated with half the bee color (the other half being yellow) so seeing a solid black bee is quite uncommon in dreams. Black is connected to the underworld and associated to the planetary energies in life. The underworld and shadow side of the things are associated with darker shades of the bee, and if this bee attacked then the dream can indicate that you need to deal with dark thoughts.

Numbers such as 5:55, 3:33, or 4:44 are common spiritual signs including bees. Signs in life are everywhere. These numbers are not coincidences. They are messages from God inviting us to be light workers or ambassadors for positive change.
Sleep is often viewed as a state of complete disconnect from the outside world. We have proven that our senses still function while we sleep and that they provide the outline or at least the point of departure for almost all of our dreams. According to older dream dictionaries to dream of bees is to put an end to all our higher mental faculties, and allow us to create something from the work we do in life.
