The hummingbird and the power of swiftness and flexibility

The hummingbird is one of the most fascinating birds because of its ability to move its body swiftly, change direction quickly and smoothly, seemingly gliding from one place to another. By affinity with this power animal, you can be encouraged to use or develop a similar skill.

When the hummingbird shows up in your life, it may be an invitation to flex you path, perhaps even bending backward or forward, in order to accommodate life’s circumstances. You may be required to adapt to a situation that is a bit more demanding than usual. The wisdom carried by this spirit animal emphasizes flexibility and lightness in your approach to the unexpected.

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. The hummingbird totem wisdom could challenge you to figure out how to stand strong while being able to move quickly and fly high, whether it’s through your personal or spiritual aspirations.

How to use the hummingbird spirit guide to lift up negativity

The spirit of the hummingbird is a powerful mean to lighten up your mood when you feel down. This power animal is a useful ally to lift you up and instill more joy and playfulness in your daily grind.

When facing challenges or an environment plagued by negativity, call on the hummingbird to help you bring a positive outlook on the situation and find your way out with optimism.

The hummingbird totem and the wisdom of accomplishing great feats

Don’t be deceived by the size of this spirit animal: Even if the hummingbird is one of the smallest birds, it can travel great distances. Those who have that bird as totem are characterized by their resiliency and their ability to run great distances tirelessly. Inspired by this totem, you will be inclined to accomplish what seems impossible to most while keeping it light and enjoyable.

The hummingbird is known for burning a lot of energy quickly to keep flying and therefore needs to find sources of food constantly. If you have the hummingbird as a totem, you may benefit from resting often and taking time to feed yourself with enough, whether it’s physically, emotionally or spiritually, to keep going.

    The love of my life, my husband, very healthy and vibrant–we had no premonition–both of us joy-filled, healthy, connected–collapsed and died 7 weeks ago – i was right with him–feeling a part of me go with him–and hopefully a part of him staying on with me. On preliminary autopsy report, they see no reason–all organs appear perfect. It all seems incomprehensible–he meant so much to so many and was doing amazing work. 4 days before he died, on a Sunday morning, I laid down on our outdoor hammock and this hummingbird hovered over me and I swear seemed as if it were talking to me –it was one of the most amazing experiences in nature that I have ever encountered. I did not move and it stayed still in midair for at least 4-5 straight minutes — just staring at me. I did not want to move for fear it would leave–I was mesmerized. It stayed and stayed. When Paul came home (my husband) I told him about it –how incredible it was –just as if it were talking to me but it was pure silence. I read here that the hummingbird represents resilience. I think it was preparing me– I am not usually the kind of person who thinks or talks like this. But this was an extraordinary circumstance 4 days before utter shock and powerful reality struck. Does this make sense that the hummingbird was there to prepare me?
    I felt something strange at the time but of course, I had no idea. Then, on the day Paul collapsed and left without any warning, I thought of the hummingbird.

    This morning was about the 4th time I have seen this Hummingbird. I had just finished praying and was very sad about an ongoing situation with my daughter. I heard this hovering sound and looked up. There was my little Hummingbird staring at me. After reading this article, I felt peace. Thank you for this article. Question, last year and large green grasshopper with only one leg lived in my okra for about a month. He even let’s me touch him. What does that mean?

    once when i was maybe 7-10 while i was riding on my scooter i saw a humming bird hovering by a silver fire hydrant and i looked back and it was gone. and many times humming birds would fly by our living room window even when there was no nectar/flowers by the window. there has even been time when there was nothing to make them think there was food and yet one was there.

    There is a hummingbird nest right next to my bedroom window, and every morning they make noises almost like a tapping and fluttering noise. Can that mean anything in regards to my love life?

    I need to know what this means….I was in Walgreens and found a dead hummingbird on the floor. Totally random. I do not work with hummingbirds as a spirit animal.
    Can this be any type of omen for me?

    • SFB May 5, 2018 at 3:59 am - Reply

      maybe it means you need to replenish yourself…YOU are alive but depleted and the dead hummingbird is a sign to rejuvinate now.

    I know this post is older but today was the first day I have ever met a hummingbird face to face. It flew next to me and just stared at me for more than a minute, but the way its eyes looked into mine it was an amazing feeling. At first I felt like the hummingbird was like a fairy- it totally brightens my day. Not sure what it was supposed to mean but no matter what I feel truly blessed.
