How To Attract Hummingbirds Into Your Life

After reading this title you might be thinking. "Why would someone, want to know, how to attract hummingbirds into their life? Let me answer that by saying, “Why wouldn’t they?”

Well for starters, let’s entertain the thought that hummingbirds have the amazing ability to open even the hardest of hearts.

Their playful dances and intuitive friendly nature will awaken your spirit and fill your being with endless hours of joy.

Throughout the centuries dating back to the Mayans, the hummingbird has been known to have various symbolic meanings.

The symbolic meanings are vast ranging from, the spreader of life on earth; peaceful, protectors of the homeland, rebirth, freedom, happiness, spiritual guidance, healing, joy, to love and beauty to name just a few.

In the bible the hummingbird is known as a messenger, stopper of time, optimism and sweetness.

My personal belief is that the hummingbird is a messenger and a guide, willing and able to teach us many valuable lessons.

The hummingbird accentuates the spiritual side of life; offering spiritual direction and guidance to people as they attempt to learn, grow and deepen their relationships while here on this Earth.

Hence, you might think of your relationship with the hummingbird as a spiritual teacher or a life coach. Follow along while we embrace this openhearted, friendly and affectionate little creature.

Like the philosophy of Feng Shui, it is known that individuals are affected by their surroundings. The underlying fundamental belief is such; by changing their surroundings and / or their environment they free their minds of both mental and physical clutter.

When the individual accepts and believes this concept, they open themselves up to the universe and the possibilities of change ensue.

By releasing the clutter they are open to attract elements of peace, harmony, joy and love; compassion fills their hearts and beauty surrounds. Senses are awakened, awareness is born; they become mindfully aware of living in the present moment.

If you have ever observed hummingbirds you may have witnessed the hummingbird doing exactly the same thing. As a hummingbird perches in a tree he sits entirely motionless for several minutes, scanning the area and taking it all in. One might say he is mindfully aware of his surroundings and is fully present.

This very same concept can be used to attract hummingbirds into your life; by cleaning up the clutter in your back yards and creating a hummingbird habitat that is a personal sanctuary for both you and your inspirational feathered friends.

You will open your mind, body and spirit to the elements of living in a harmonious flow; your soul will experience a sense of rejuvenation.

Learning To Trust

Hummingbirds are easy adaptable creatures that don’t mind sharing their space. Once they become accustomed to you and learn that they can trust you they will have no problem coming right up to you. Many people have been able to feed the hummingbirds by holding a feeder tube or by cupping their hand and placing liquid nectar into the palm. The hummingbird's have been known to perch on their fingers while drinking from the tube or palm of their hand.

What Have You Got To Lose?

On a more personal level if you are still considering whether or not you would like to attract hummingbirds into your life. Consider the following questions.

Do you want to attract peace, harmony and joy into your life?

Are you intrigued by the natural wonders of our world and how it is sensed by the living creatures in various habitats? Have you often wondered what you have in common with them? Or what you can learn by observing them and better yet, sharing your space with them?

Are you ready to be surrounded by beauty, experiencing it from the inside out? Are you willing to accept change and be open to receiving happiness and tireless joy?

If you have answered yes to at least three of these questions, chances are you are ready to attract hummingbirds into your life.

So what is required of you in order to attract these intriguing beautiful birds into your life? The very first step is to design a hummingbird habitat.

Up Close Video of Hummingbirds

  • Hummingbird Migration Facts The hummingbird is a persistent and loyal little bird. Many species that migrate to the Unites States have been known to travel over 2,000 miles during migration including a 500 mile non-stop stretch over the Gulf of Mexico.
  • Hummingbird's Anatomy The Hummingbird's are uniquely fascinating birds. Due to the hummingbird's unique anatomy complete with a ball and socket joint in the shoulder. They have amazing abilities to rotate their wings 180 degrees, thus being able to make circles with their wings somewhat like a figure eight motion.
  • Hummingbird's can fly side to side, forward and backwards and hover in mid-air like a space ship.
  • They can soar at amazing speeds of beating their wings up to 80 times a second during flight. During their courtship they tend to power dive with wing speeds up to 200 beats per second. The hummingbird heart rate is known to reach 1,260 beats per minute.
  • They are recognized for their symbolic meanings and beautiful color range of bright iridescent neon colors.

Hummingbird Food Mixture

  1. Ratio, mix 1 part sugar to 4 parts water mixture.
  2. Immediately add 4 parts sugar, stir until all the sugar is dissolved.
  3.  Allow mixture to cool and be sure that the feeders have been thoroughly cleaned. before filling feeders.
  4. Any remaining left over mixture can be refrigerated.

Creating a Hummingbird Habitat

There are many important steps to consider in creating a hummingbird habitat that will attract hummingbirds into your life.

First and foremost is to plant lots of brightly colored flowers containing nectar, especially ones that have a trumpet or tunnel shape.

Here are a few flowers that you might consider; fuchsia, cora bells, bee balm, columbine and petunias. Keep in mind when choosing the colors of your garden that hummingbirds love the color red. Be sure to incorporate lots of red flowers.

You should also have several hummingbird feeders. My two personal favorites pictured to the right and can be purchased right here. The first feeder is a hanging feeder and is one of the bests. The Hummingbird window feeders are also very popular.

For tips and advice on how to choose the best hummingbird feeders read my other article.  Hummzinger Hummingbird Feeders.

If you have often wondered why the base of the hummingbird feeder is red, you now know. Hummingbird's like human's have favorite colors as well.

Like all birds, the hummingbird is attracted to water. Having a bird bath, a small pond or even a gentle mist is essential to your habitat. The hummingbird loves to bathe on misted foliage or in pools of water.

You should also consider choosing a variety of plants that bloom at different times throughout the seasons. It is important to keep a supply of nectar available at all times.

If you have a fence or divider where vines can grow, plant a hummingbird vine. Hummingbird vines have trumpet like flowers and come in a variety of colors. They are easy to grow and offer a nice backdrop as well as enhancing your habitat. Due to the nature of these vines taking over you might want to consider planting these in pots.

Hummingbirds love tiny insects so avoid using any pesticides in your habitat. As nectar is their fuel and energizes these magnificent little creatures. Insects are their source of protein for their muscles. Think of it this way, a chemically free safe environment shared with a companion who kills mosquito's before they have a chance to bite you. Absolutely no harsh pesticides and no more noisy bug zappers or stinky citronella candles to deal with.

Becoming mindfully aware and protecting the environment, are just a small sampling of the many gifts and lessons that the hummingbird has to offer.

Love, beauty, companionship, spiritual guidance and no bugs. Life is Good! It doesn't get any better than this.

One additional and essential element you'll need to consider in your habitat is to offer many different resting places for the hummingbird. That’s right, just like you, the hummingbird needs a place to rest and nest.

By planting shrubs or trees of various shapes, sizes and heights you are offering places of rest. When choosing your shrubs you might want to consider a very famous shrub known as the hummingbird shrub. With its bright red color flowers it is sure to attract hummingbirds. The hummingbird shrub is a hardy shrub and is known to withstand harsh winters.

Hummingbirds love to perch, preen and nest. It’s important to offer both sun and shady areas.

While creating your hummingbird habitat, be sure to provide a place of comfort for yourself where you can sit, enjoy and learn. These tiny little birds are one of the most magnificent inspiring little creatures that has so much to offer.

Therapeutic Benefits | Healing with the Hummingbird

Your hummingbird habitat will provide a therapeutic environment that is rich in aromas, pleasantries and sound. A place where your inner landscape can be nurtured and healing can take place. Awakening your senses and fine tuning your awareness.You are on your way to cultivating a mindful presence that is soon to become a natural process.

Throughout your relationship with these loving and compassionate little birds you will encounter many lessons. The hummingbird is an amazing Life Coach and Spiritual Leader. Here are a few of the many little lessons and therapeutic benefits that will set you on your coarse to healing through Hummingbird Therapy.

  • Observing the hummingbird hovering over a flower while drinking nectar. The hummingbird's message is learn to savor the moment.
  • The hummingbird is not only mesmerizing when observed closely, for any length of time, it may have a hypnotizing effect. Like hypnotherapy, you may experience a deep sense of relaxation.
  • The hummingbird has a rotating shoulder that allows them various flexibility in the way they move. They can move up and down, forward and backwards or hover in place. The hummingbird clearly demonstrates life in motion and the importance of being flexible.
  • Observing the hummingbird as he comes in for a short rest, perched high up in the tree, scanning his surroundings and taking it all in. The hummingbird shows us how to be mindfully aware of our surroundings.

I love them - I think because of their size most of all, but then their beauty is unbelievable - how you can pack that much color in such a little space...and then that fierce deal. My favorite place is to hang them outside my kitchen window (where I just happen to spend so much time) and watch them at dusk trading off for a place to eat and chasing each other away...the give and take of it all is amazing! Beautiful hub - love the pics.

We don't have hummingbirds in South Africa as far as I know. The closest we get are the sugar birds which also use nectar from trumpet shaped flowers like the tecomaria. They are very shy birds, though, and difficult to get close to.

I loved the idea of a hummingbird as a life coach! That is a wonderful observation on both birds and coaches. Great stuff. It is setting my mind off on a new path altogether. Thanks for that!

Love and peace

i was lucky, no, blessed to have held a hummingbird in my hand when we resuced a baby one that had fallen from the nest. we Googled and found that you should leave them be, so after picking him up from the hot gravel, we placed him under the cool shade of the pine tree and sure enough, his mother came to watch over him. he couldn't fly, so at night he snuggled up against the wall under the pine tree, and we leaned a terra cotta pot over him so the cats couldn't get him at night. the next morning there he was, waiting for his mother, and later in the day he hopped up into the honeysuckle shrub and the next morning he hopped into the low branches of the pine tree and that afternoon he was in the middle and that evening he was buzzing about, so my son named him Buzz. we know him because he always gives three very loud chirps and flies right to your face and hovers there for a moment, then happily flits away. Buzz has a mate and has sired his own children. the Maya believed that hummingbirds are the spirit of deceased warriors. i can see that because they are fearless! ;)

lovely hub Sage. rating it UP.

Oh Cosette, what a beautiful story. I'm so glad he lived and it is so cool that you know which one he is. Apparently he seems to remember you as well and is so very grateful. Way to cool, thanks so much for sharing and for doing the right thing for Buzz. I love your story.

Sage, hummingbirds have a very near and dear place in my heart. We used to own a summer house up in Michigan and I spent some of the most wonderful months of my life there. We had a hummingbird feeder right outside our kitchen window and I just remember being so fascinated with them, especially their wing speed. They remind me of my departed grandmother who loved and adored them. I need to get busy attracting them! GREAT hub.
