Surviving the Sting with Wasp Medicine ~
Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest:
5. The Wasp knows not to take rejection personally. Her advice is to use the sting of unpleasant events to keep us moving and on track.
Do you need to find a better route to your destination? Are you tapping into a “hive mind” that is poisonous to you?
In this situation, what do you need to do to take care of yourself?
Healing Action: Overcome disappointment and move on. Block the influx of negative energy. Find gratitude in difficult circumstances.
Surviving the Sting
Disappointment comes in many forms.
The things that others do or say often sting,
but the wasp knows that it’s nothing personal.
Do not allow yourself to become overwhelmed
or sensitive when you are repelled.
It’s not important that everybody likes you.
It’s not even possible.
Your time is better spent looking for
another route to your destination.
The wasp does not intend any harm;
she simply follows her instincts.
If she has stung you today, count yourself blessed,
because she has saved you much time
and trouble in the long run.
You could be about to step
into the middle of a hornet’s nest.
Nurse your wounds and move on.

Further Exploration into Wasp Medicine:
You haven’t been paying attention to subtle messages telling you that you are off track. Perhaps you are so busy being right and trying to make things work that you are missing out on important information and opportunities. Your pride may say, “but this is the way things are supposed to work!” In this case, that is not so.
As you softly gaze into the Circle, ask yourself: “Have I learned what I needed to learn from this situation yet?” If not, what’s missing? Step back and observe what’s going on from a distance. Notice the ways that you still aren’t protecting yourself. Are you trying to force something? Are you trying to “bee” something that you’re not? Are you overwhelmed or stepping into a mess of trouble without taking adequate precautions?
Be more flexible and creative in accomplishing your goals. Be open to inspiration and wonderful new paths. If you make the adjustment, the bounty of the universe can make its way to you.
Pay attention to your dreams and insights because they are particularly rich at this time. If you are willing to be innovative, a brilliant idea is waiting for you to grasp it and use to start something entirely new.
Finally, thank those who kept irritating you. Even though it wasn’t much fun, they were helping you on your way.
