October 27, 2015 Totem Card of the Day – Hummingbird

card 51 hummingbird

Today with Grandmother Moon’s strong energy upon us once again, it is time to look for the best of things even in the tiniest of moments. As the energy brings emotion to the surface, and throws us a tad off balance, remind yourselves by opening your eyes and awakening to what is that there is process and purpose for all things. We must learn to honor just that. As with the seasons that move through upon the Earth’s surface, the actions of the days and nights for us do the same… bringing a constant flow of change with them.

Change is part of everything, there is no stopping it so to say one hates changes, is not even relevant for we are changing from the moment we are conceived. Our Soul’s journey is all about that change as we walk the Human, it is all about evolving and experiencing the Sacred thing we call Life!  So move with the flow, hoover where you need to so that you may learn or experience it all… so we can keep our own Sacred Hoops in Balance!

Hummingbird, symbol of resurrection, rebirth as they live each day and as the blanket of night spreads over the lands, these little birds become lifeless and appear to die. As Father Sun begins to awaken the world, his warmth touches the tiny wings and this little bird once again rises to the tasks of the day. Teaching us there is time for work and then we must have time to rest in order to revitalize our souls, our bodies and our minds.

Hummingbird brings the lesson of Joy with them, teaching us to remember the Sacredness of all life and how fragile it is. To remind us we must keep our Sacred Hoops in balance and honor our paths by remembering to slow down at times to feed, to gather strength and energy. To move in positives to attain our dreams and goals but do it in efficient ways, smart ways, thought out ways.

Hummingbirds do not walk or hop, their feet are tiny and do not function as other birds, this is so they can be more efficient than other birds at their tasks. So with them they bring efficiency and teach us adaptability as well.

They show themselves when it is time to live your dreams in Joy and Happiness, understanding that the Universe, Creator God and the Ancestors are there to help us all, but you have to have Faith that it will come to pass.
