I was out feeding the horses a few mornings ago when I allowed my mind to wander from what I was doing to thoughts of issues that were stressssssing me out and causing me allot of internal conflict. Before I knew it I was literally having a fight with myself inside myself.
Gratefully it didn’t last too long because two beautiful hummingbirds were drawn to me. Unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you want to look at it, they were drawn to the energy of my inner conflict. They were busy having their own conflict. The hummingbirds were zipping around my body at an incredibly high rate of speed and using me as a tool while they postured & fought. I have never seen hummingbirds do this. They seemed to be in a highly confrontational state.
These little birds moved so quickly that it was mostly just a blurr of brilliant red with a hint of green and grey. My eyes could not even come close to keeping up with them. I would just get a split second view before they were behind me and then right back in front of me and then above me. It was absolutely fascinating and delightful. It brought me straight back to the present moment and out of my state of conflict. I loved it!!
I wish they could have stayed longer. When they flew off into the trees I stood there feeling very aware of why they had visited me.
Physically they brought me back to the present moment. Symbolically they reminded me of who I am and how I truly feel. Most importantly they reminded me of the effects of the energy that I put out into the world via my thoughts. The little birds that were in conflict were comfortably drawn to me as I was also in conflict – we all vibrated on a similar level of conflict.
My thoughts and the energy created by my thoughts are my gift or my weapon – the choice is always mine. The little birds reminded me of this simple truth.
The spiritual & symbolic meaning of Hummingbird: It is the only creature that can stop dead while traveling at full speed. It searches for the sweetness in life. Its long tongue lets it bypass the often tough and bitter outer layer to find the hidden treasures underneath. Hummingbird brings love as no other medicine can and its presence brings joy to the observer. If you have Hummingbird medicine, you adapt easily to whatever situation you may find yourself in and make the most of your new circumstances. You don’t waste time looking back and wishing for “what was” for you are concerned with making the most of “what is”. To restrict that wonderful, free, loving energy is to suffer great depressions and feelings of uselessness.
