Hummingbirds are magical little creatures with the spirits of sprites. I was fortunate enough to have been visited by one of these little beings of light two days in a row. These beautifully assorted friends symbolize joy, swiftness, and endurance.
They are seen as a sign of happiness due to their uplifting, whimsical nature. Their wings beat so fast we cannot even see them move as if they are propelled by sheer pixie dust. The bright coloring of their plumage stimulates the euphoric energies of our being, and their taste for delicious nectar fills us with their same sweet disposition.
As their wings move faster than the eye can see, hummingbirds are able to hover with immense agility as they change direction and pace at the drop of a dime. They are the only birds who can fly forward and backward as well as side to side. The complexity of their movements paired with their high energy can be hard to keep up with at times, especially while trying to capture a mesmerizing picture like the one above.
Hummingbirds are able to showcase their endurance through their determination to reach the delectable nectar deep within each flower. Sometimes they have to sift through bitter and tough outer layers in order to reach their liquid gold. Hummingbirds can also travel extremely long distances, (even over large bodies of water), in a single trip.
Hummingbirds remind us that life is not as serious as we think, and can be experienced with a lighthearted smile. It is okay to believe in magic and the unknown mysteries of life that make our heart flutter. We are encouraged to continue to have faith in the positive wonders that life has to bring. There are more than enough reasons to find simple delights in the world around us.
The swift movements of not only the wings of a hummingbird, but also their patterns of flight show us that we are capable of infinite combinations of infinite possibilities. They share the knowledge that we are limitless in our movements, decisions, and actions. We are capable of flexibility when faced with instant change as we swiftly adjust to the elements. Hummingbirds spread the message that we are able, competent beings.
Finally, we are being told that if we are hardworking and determined, we will be able to experience the sweet victory of achieving our goals. It is important to never give up because success can be just around the corner as we remain tenaciously focused. There are various treasures that we each hold near and dear to our hearts. We all have the potential to bask in the wealth of our own riches.
Let’s keep our senses open to these uplifting workers as they pollinate the beautiful flowers that surround us during this time. We must enjoy the little things in life with energy and determination as we work toward our goals. Believe in the magic we hold Eternal Waking Beauties because we are powerful and sweet beings just like the beautiful Hummingbird.
Om Mani Padme Hum.࿆ૐ
