The Flight of the Hummingbird


One of the most glorious beauties of life on earth is watching nature's Divine creatures as they fulfill their intuitive calling. 

They seem to be sent to us so we can learn from observing and enjoying the grace and ease they display in their pure pleasure of BEING.

There is such simplicity and beauty to their flow and such Divine wisdom.  They have so much to teach us about the JOY OF LIVING.

A stunningly beautiful example of this DIVINE GIFT is the iridescent and irrepressible hummingbird.

The hummingbird's plumage is brilliant, celebrating the lush luminosity of life.

It is unafraid to approach and enter into relationship, teaching us the importance of caring and connection. 

It can rotate its wings in a circle (signifying the circle of life) and thus can fly forwards, backwards, up, down, sideways and also hover in mid air.  The hummingbird can navigate every challenge needed to traverse the adventures of life. 

The hummingbird is also hardy and resilient with wings that flap up to ninety times per second, signaling a seemingly unending source of high vibrational energy.

Perhaps the most significant lesson to be learned from the hummingbird is the image of its magnificent HEART which can exceed 1,200 beats per second.  This is a heart with an almost unfathomable capacity...with unceasing  love.  This heart propels and informs all its actions.  It is the SOURCE of the hummingbird's power.

We have been given the hummingbird to ILLUMINATE our path...to MENTOR and TEACH us.

The hummingbird's legacy to us is to open our hearts, fill them with  joy and teach us to laugh and sing and take delight in God's creation.  

All we need do is observe this Divine teacher to learn how to embrace and appreciate the treasures awaiting us in this Divinely inspired and magical playground called earth.

  1. The tiny, marvelous hummingbird CAN show us the way to navigate our way through this world. We only have to stop and observe this wonder of nature and then imitate the wise use of energy to find what moves us constructively along our own personal journey. Nature has so much to teach us if we take the time to learn!
