Small batch raspberry mead question

I started my second batch of mead. I am wonder if anyone can give me some advice?
Here is my recipe.
4.5 lbs honey.
24 oz raspberries
25 raisins.
2 tbs strong tea
yeast energizer
1 packet ec1118 yeast.

My concern is the mean has been churning away but the honey has seperated and settled on the bottom of the fermentor. Should I leave it and see what happens or should airate and pitch some more yeast? Any advice is welcome and thanks in advance.

If it’s still fermenting I wouldn’t airate or pitch more yeast. Sanitize a racking cane and gently stir the honey back into suspention.
