The Uncapping of The Bee Hive
Reconnective Healing for Pets
Jeremy Stout – Energy Healthcare, Reconnective Healing Practitioner
I recently came across an interesting view point on my progress with Reconnective Healing (RH) for Pets. When the opportunity came forth to be invited to facilitate RH on an upstart bee hive, I couldn’t have thought of a more ample opportunity to find love in the lives of Honey Bees and be able to observe a mid-season inspection. In accordance to the BeeKeepers philosophy, “the offering of honey as payment will be well worth the price in gold.” Thank you Joan Fowler for prepping me for the task.
The Honey Bee hive I am working with is a one year post cut-out. The hive has been moved once to the original cut-out location, hence it’s original environment 8 months post house, cut out, due to neighbors potential bee allergy. As I ventured into a completely unknown, I came to realize that we rely so much on the lives of the Honey Bees. It’s obvious that Organic Honey is an art and a delicatessen…
In my personal observation with the presence of the Bee Keeper. There was an upcoming warm front that provided an opportunity to open the bee hive for inspection. We wanted to provide ample time to recreate a seal prior to any future cold snap. The observation began after facilitating two Reconnective Healing sessions over a 10 day span. The pictures below we accomplished 14 days from day of first facilitated session. Cheryl Lambert and myself opened the hive for a brief inspection during a warm period in Mid-January.
We observed the following occurrences during inspection:
- A ‘docile’ organized hive. Guard Bees on alert and ready, however a bit more keen on the lack of the potential threat created by smoking process. In my eyes, there seemed to stage of a fear based emotion when the smoke was applied and time I paused to get the pictures taken.
- Increased honey development in right back side of the hive, and increased development tunnels on the opposite side.
- Reduced use of smoking process. The type of Honey Bee is important to this part of the study.
- Infestation study. See picture of bottom tray.
- Queen was singing.
- Focus on upcoming swarm target date, early February ’17.

My personal outtake:
I would like to say this personal experience was something you only can dream of. There, at that moment, I had to overcome a long list of fears after doing work with the bees. Having no expectations, realizing now how pleasant an experience I was getting ready to have. A vast swing in heighted awareness from when I first walked out in jeans and a T Shirt to my suited up picture on day 14. As a pre-requisite, I reserved studying or video tutorials of Honey Bees in advance, as I did not want to create any preconceptions that may alter my experience. It was until after I learned what a hot hive looks like, and thus bewilderment began. Thank you Joan Dove Fowler, Cheryl Lambert, and guidance from Becka’s B’s at the county Beekeepers association for their organization. Encouraged, I have been reading some online content, I came to realize we rely significantly on the Honey Bee’s population in our world for our food supply. I truly feel that this piece of my charitable time has blessings beyond.
