Betrayal

In this dream, I'm narrating, as on a sunny day, a small group of teenagers and their high school science teacher are walking through a peaceful meadow. Up ahead, the teacher notices a beehive. It stands approximately 7 feet tall and resembles a building. The teacher is excited, rushing over to the hive as the students follow behind him.

“Wow!” the teacher says, “This is really cool.” He touches the hive, as the busy bees move about, unconcerned by their excited visitors. The bees have never seen a man before, so they have no fear. Neither has a man ever seen such bees, as fat as strawberries and as tamed as kittens.

The teacher picks up one of the bees, allowing it to play on his palm; but he is concerned that it will sting him. The teacher then thoughtlessly turns the trusting bee upside down, exposing its thin black stinger. Then he plucks out the stinger and allows the puzzled bee to fall to the grass.

Betrayed, the plump bee springs into the air and flies back to its hive. Then, within three seconds, the entire hive of once friendly bees swarm up from the top of the hive like a tornado and then angrily rain down on the teacher and his students, stinging, as they run franticly through the once peaceful meadow.

Very interesting dream, I wish I knew how to interpret dreams because I really want to know what that means.

Yikes! I agree with the comment above. That would be an interesting dream to interpret.

It was an actual dream I had, so your guess is as good as mine. It was very vivid, and I wanted to record it before I forget..

well i think the whole stinger thing is phallic... after all if the bees plump as strawberries in the dream,, had the "ghetto booty" the girl in the picture does... welllllllllll....

Hmm, I like your analogy… and you’re right, she’s definitely working with a “ghetto booty”…

So why did the teacher have to abuse the trust of the bee?

My mentor and teacher once told me that everything in a dream is you ( a jungian view I believe). The bee could be about you, and you felt or fear the sting of something in your life. Not that I am trying to analyze you lol!

Great post.

This sounds Eden-ish to me in a way: man does not know good & evil--evil does not know man. They abuse each other and open Pandora's Box, so to speak.
