About the Bee

witchyMy name is Marissa. Born and raised in St. Charles, Illinois, I now live in Seattle, Washington. My blog started due to my inspiration, the bee, and the EcoSpiritual connection I share with it.

The bee has been revered in many cultures throughout history. The Native Americans note the bee as a symbol of service, self-sufficiency, and community. The Egyptians thought it was a symbol of rebirth and creativity.

A bee itself is many things. It is creative, building its home or hive. It is hard-working, flying around all day collecting pollen and producing honey. It is a symbol of happiness and joy. It sustains life. From pollination, flowers and fruit-bearing trees are able to strive. Without bees, we cannot survive. Their Spiritual and Eco meanings are very important and encompass my passions of the environment, design, and spirituality.

Embracing all that this animal represents, I wish to introduce this way of living to others, through eco-living and spiritual practices. Since the bee is a natural designer and architect, I also discuss ways to incorporate smart and sustainable design into your space. Having a background in Interior and Environmental Design, I understand the importance of a living space, one’s hive, and wish to educate others on achieving a harmonious space.  It is a little piece of myself that I share to you. One bee to a hive.

If you are interested in adding EcoSpirituality into your life, be sure to subscribe to my blog! It is my passion project and I’m so delighted to share it with my community.

Aside from my blog, I am an artist. I bring forth EcoSpirituality into my watercolor painting which are a whimsical natural take on ancient metaphysical and spiritual symbols.  To see and purchase my EcoSpiritual creations, visit my ETSY, Honey Lune Hivery.
