The bees are busy with their summer harvest. Their instinct tells them how to gather and process the ingredients they need for their survival and luckily for us the byproducts of their work are the pollination that allows fruit to set and seeds to be created, and also the wonderful honey, wax, royal jelly, pollen and propolis.
Humans have their instinctual gathering skills also. Long ago our ancestors were keenly attuned to the environment. It was key to their survival. There were no distractions from the sights, smells and vibrational awareness of each unique ecosystem. Today humans rely less on themselves and more on television, radio, internet, and cell phone and they have given up their own empowerment for choice to corporations, supermarkets, big food, big pharma, and the list goes on.
