Spiritual and Totem Insights for the Day – the Hummingbird

Hummingbird was the card that displayed this morning, bringing with it the message of “Spirit“. WE often forget that it is Spiritual energy that guides us and helps us as we walk the Human.  Souls of our Ancestors and loved ones that have walked before us, with us… they bring with them that Unconditional love and support that we are constantly looking for. Hummingbirds are the gentle reminders of the in-between. Darting quickly here and there, experiencing life to the fullest. They are also wonderful examples of how to best utilize that energy, showing us there is time for everything… work… play… and most important of all rest.

The world pushes and pushes us each moment, sometimes so much it causes a negative outcome… that is when we need to recall the lesson of the Hummingbird the most, listen to the “Spirit World” as they whisper in our minds to slow down the pace… slow down the emotional that is racing through our systems and remember to Breathe!

With all the energy that has been swirling around us all, it is no surprise that the Hummingbird stops in today to share messages with us! Many of us out there have been experiencing all kinds of craziness and major energy shifts, it seems to be the nature of the world we live in lately. These shifts are often happening faster and sometimes moment to moment and causing us all to be a bit off balance (or at least to feel like we are on a boat that is rolling with the water as we try to regain our footing!  So we need to remind ourselves when this occurs to stop…take a breathe before we take another motion forward, rest a bit and save our energy.

So many negatives in our world today, and many we are not in control of. So the best thing that we can do is to control how we react to it all. Calm our minds, say a prayer or send out positive thoughts and try to keep our heads above it all. If we can manage that…we will be surprised just how many good things will occur in the ripple outwards.

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 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…”
Many Blessings to ya’ll
