Hummingbird: Embracing Life to its Fullest
Hummingbird: Embracing Life
Embracing life can be such a rewarding and fulfilling experience, that to let each day pass without finding something we can rejoice in, would be like removing a year from our life….one day at a time.
When we embrace each day to its fullest, we embrace the beautiful moments and memories that live within our minds, our hearts, and our souls. It is within our souls where we find the hummingbird who takes great delight in hovering over those beautiful moments in our lives and causing them to freeze in time.
How many times have you just wanted to fly backwards in time and savor the beautiful past once more? Some of us are just hummingbird people.
With the desire to fly to the past and savor those moments, hummingbird will also teach us to awaken our senses to the beauty of the present moments in our lives.
As they dance with joy the four quarters of embodied existence, hummingbird will bring to us several things that we can incorporate into our daily structure. Medicine is given to us to solve that riddle of duality along with the awakening to medicinal plants.

We Must Laugh and Enjoy all that is Created
The hummingbird teaches us that we must laugh and enjoy all that is created and to appreciate being alive. Hummingbird delights in truth and beauty. We as humans live for beauty. We take great delight the blossoming of flowers along with their aromas. We love to hear a baby laugh or watch two kittens play awkwardly with one another. The stars at night give us a sense of peace; the sun each day gives us warmth and security. The fine mist we feel on our face when standing near a waterfall, the different tastes we experience when we eat. The hummingbird does it all. It opens the heart and allows life to happen. When we assume hummingbird, our life becomes a wonderland.

Flowers are Essential to the Hummingbird
Flowers are a vital part of hummingbird’s teachings to us. We are taught how to use flowers to heal and win hearts in love.
Have you ever observed a hummingbird while it moves about in an aerial dance among the flowers?
It is truly amazing to watch how two hummingbirds create an aerial dance of the heart as one will chase the other in hopes of winning their partner’s love.
In Mexico, there is a “folk belief” that hummingbirds bring love and romance to our circle. It is also believed that in ancient times, people would wear stuffed hummingbirds around their necks and wrists as lucky charms in hopes of bringing success where matters of the heart are concerned.
It was also common practice to have a couple sit in the garden and observe the flights and antics of the hummingbirds. We should all sit in our gardens and watch the hummingbird. You may be pleasantly surprised on what may occur.

The Independance of the Hummingbird
Becoming independent is one of life’s challenging lessons we encounter as we grow. From birth to adulthood, we take steps of independence that teach us to crawl, stand, walk, and then run. Hummingbirds are fiercely independent. They know how to fight their way through life where no one really gets hurt. Their courage is strong yet simple. When we hear the vibration of the hummingbird’s wings, an eternal message is presented to us by the hummingbird that restores our health and balance. This is applied freely to our fierce independence.

Inviting Hummingbird to Your Garden Each Year
The hummingbird is awe inspiring as it is constantly teaching us how to protect our environment and more importantly, to preserve old traditions that are in danger of being lost forever. Hummingbirds return to the garden year after year because of its tradition of where it first started out. As it gains independence, it ventures out to another garden to find love and romance. After its symbolic aerial dance of passion, hummingbird then returns with its true love and presents its new partner with a new home and garden.
To encourage hummingbird to visit our gardens and return each year with valuable lessons, be sure to keep your jar of red nectar filled and place their favorite flowers throughout the garden. In addition, create your favorite place to sit where you can observe and learn from the lessons that hummingbird will bring to you.
Does Hummingbird have a Place in Your Totem?
On many occasions, an animal, bird, or even an insect will mysteriously appear in our life and become a part of our consciousness. We are very aware of our special visitor as this animal becomes associated with us in many ways and we begin to sense who we are and how our values are represented by this animal.
Many people have totem animals that they have embraced and have intertwined their own lives with these powerful species. Some may include the bear, wolf, raven, coyote, butterfly, snake, eagle, and owl.
The hummingbird is also a very powerful totem animal and many people have and continue to develop a mysterious bond with this tiny, delicate creature.
When hummingbird becomes our totem, its teachings will find a place in our hearts forever as we continue on this journey of love, laughter, and joy.
