Throughout childhood we are generally taught to fear bees. If bees are on our skin, parents or other more mature loved ones will take it as their duty to brush the bees away and to make sure that we are left unharmed by them. When we become old enough to get rid of bees ourselves, and someone sees a bee on us, they will scream and vigorously insist that we swat it away before something bad happens. With all of these negative experiences involving bees, you would probably imagine that a dream dictionary would have negative thoughts on them as well. However, dream interpretations are much more forgiving involving bees. In fact, a dream interpretation taken straight out of the dictionary will tell you that bees as a dream symbol are actually a very good omen.
The meaning of dream involving bees is usually one having to do with studiousness, or being busy. Bees are by nature, busy creatures, and though we don't often consider them as such, they are extremely well known for tirelessly working for their queen's benefit. This is the reason that a dream meaning for bees involves wealth and happiness. When you see bees in your dreams you can expect to be happy and healthy for however long your luck lasts. These dream meanings can also serve as a symbol letting you know that you have been lucky for the past few days. Maybe you've gotten a raise recently or a promotion. Perhaps you have come across a small fortune. Either way, the bees are in your dream to indicate your good fortune that you've had recently.
Bees in your dream can also just be an indicator of increased activity. Maybe your life has suddenly become more active than it was just a few days ago, or maybe you have had an increase in duties at work. Bees are busy creatures, so when you see them in your dreams, it probably means that you've been busy too.
Dreaming that you have been stung by a bee can indicate that you have been stung by someone else recently in a more metaphorical sense. It may not have been something serious, but it was probably still something that hurt, much like a bee sting. Perhaps you caught wind of something that a good friend said about you behind your back, or perhaps you were wronged by someone in a different way recently. This is one reason that you might be seeing bees invading your dream. Despite having cultural associations with bees that usually state how dangerous or scary they are, we also have cultural associations with them that put them in a positive light. Apparently the most important cultural associations are to be found in your dreams, as this seems to be the place where they mean the most positive things.
