The hummingbird, a power animal indicative of strong sensibility

By association with the hummingbird power animal, you may have already developed a strong adaptability and are typically quick to respond to any demand. You may also have a high sensibility and feel every nuances of emotions or movement in your environment.

Brought to the extreme, this ability may lead you to emotional instability as you shift rapidly from one feeling or mood to another without warning.

    Today a hummingbird came and hovered in front of my face. I went out two different times and it came to me. Looking up the meaning of this has brought me great comfort. I have periods of emotional unrest where I empathic ally feel everything. Then I am trying to process and discern what is going on. What my call is. Today with the hummingbird showing up it validates me and brings meaning and direction. May I find the playful lightness in this day.

    It’s really a blessing to see a humming bird, I’m an original Jamaican, with that being said, a humming bird is the national bird of Jamaica. I grew up seeing these gifts of nature , anyhow I now reside in the states and I barely get to see these birds, long story long lol. I was feeling depressed one day and I went outside to smoke a joint, there and behold a humming bird came inches away from me and sucked the nectar from the wild plants growing outside, I said to my self, oh shit’ a humming bird! The bird then flew in a pyramid pattern around my little apartment, hovered over the house top and pooped! I laughed to myself and instantly I felt better and got even more high from the good ganja herb. The crazy part is that the following day I went outside randomly, here comes the same bird hovering while feasting on nectars again. I said bloodclaat” Jah is real, there was a hurricane name FLorence heading to South Carolina that week, I had no where to go, I had to stay and face the storm , but the storm came and passed , no damage done to my car or apt or me. That was a message that the bird bring.I could not make this up, this is my experience, all facts! If you see a humming bird just smile and wave, and expect good blessings, and last but not least , say jah is good.

    Last night I came home from work to find a dead hummingbird in my driveway. It looked like it was flying and just dropped out of the sky. I have had some traumatic issues with my daughters over the past couple of days and wondered if there was any symbolism behind the hummingbird find.

    Today on 9/9/18 a “new moon” I had been putting off my new moon manifestation writings so I had been outside thinking about what to ask for and this large female hummingbird came flying over my head and around the house, I do not see them much, when I heard her again and looked at her coming back around she hovered a foot away just looking at me and even cocked her head to look harder when our eyes locked and then she flew away. I believe she wanted me to believe in my manifestations. A sign from the universe. Thank You🙏🏽

    My daughter attended my son’s best friend’s wedding on Friday and during the vows a humming bird flew down and landed at my daughter’s feet. It let my son in law pick it up and hold it. My son went to Heaven five years ago.💙💫

    Today my Mom and I noticed a Hummingbird that was trapped in the barn and was covered in cobwebs and hay. We felt sorry for it but didn’t know how we could help it. An hour later I was standing in the middle of the barn when I felt a flutter against my arm and heard little chirping. I assumed it was the hummingbird and looked to the hayloft to see where it was. I still heard the chirping as of it were trying to get my attaintion and I tried to follow the sounds with my eyes. When I looked down and it was right at my feet looking up at me chirping; probably asking for help. I took the biggest piece of hay off the little bird and it flew a little ways but dropped back down. So, realizing how weak it was I picked it up and it stood still in my hand. I then went to find my mom and we spent the next few mintutes cleaning it up. It stayed really still and let us touch him and pick the cobwebs and hay off. We then went up to the owner of the property and asked if she has a hummingbird feeder. She didn’t but agreed to give the bird some sugar water and keep it over night. I really hope the little bird does ok.
