November 24, 2915 Totem Card of the Day – Hummingbird

card 51 hummingbird
Today speaks to a few things as Hummingbird presents itself from the deck this morning. The first is that we need to honor and respect people and things, situations that call for special care and approach in a delicate manner. Moments and people are precious and need not be discarded, for us remembering not to be the bull in the china shop…to be more like the little delicate hummingbird that only uses what it needs to move along in positives. That is what we to must learn to do. Look at the beauty in life, and not place so much emphasis on the negatives. Take time to remember we are all flawed, all have some imperfect seams… that is what makes us so beautiful and unique.

It also speaks to us in volumes about honoring time, as it is precious when we walk the human. so make sure that you honor time for self, make time for those that are important to us… for life moves as quickly as the wings on the little hummingbird, and that time can be gone in a blink. Make sure to reserve energy for what is important, to take time to also rest and re energize, for this is the time of year we often forget and wind up wearing ourselves to a frazzle. So Reserve… Rest… Renew your Soul’s to allow them to dance to Life’s magic today and all the days to come.

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.

“I am Dedicated to Educating and sharing the Native culture with the World. It is not enough merely to teach the ways of our Elders. We must honor those traditions by sharing and educating the World. Inspiring others …Inspiring our Youth. Through the Music… the Arts…the stories…”
