Hummingbird Symbolism, Hummingbird Meaning, Hummingbird Totem, Hummingbird Dream, and Messages
Be persistent in the pursuit of your dreams.

Hummingbird Meaning and Messages

In this case, Hummingbird symbolism is reminding you that it is time for you to pursue your dreams more aggressively. By doing this, you will make them a reality. In other words, this spirit animal portends that joy is just around the corner. Therefore, like the colorful Jewel Beetle, you have to believe that it is possible to manifest your dreams now. Stop waiting and go for it! Alternatively, Hummingbird meaning is letting you know that you can go anywhere you need to go. The only obstacle in your way is yourself. Furthermore, opportunities are manifesting quickly for you right now. Thus like the Heron, Hummingbird symbolism prompts you to seize them as fast as possible before they are gone.

Hummingbird Totem, Spirit Animal

People with the Hummingbird totem are messengers of hope and jubilation. Thus they aggressively seek out those that need inspiration and renewal. They have a knack for bringing out the best in them. Folks with this power animal are also loyal, playful, and persistent. Like the Lion totem, they are also fiercely independent hard workers who love to come up with original designs in all kinds of things. These people also take good care of themselves by making sure that they do not overextend themselves during their efforts to accomplish and construct things. People with this spirit animal have a natural talent for the forms and phrasings of movement. Thus they make excellent choreographers. Also, like the Angelfish, they love to decorate and use color flamboyantly.

Hummingbird Dream Interpretation

When you have a Hummingbird dream, it suggests that seemingly small ideas and concepts often possess a lot of potential and power. In other words, a little idea can turn into a huge success. Alternatively, it can symbolize that your flighty thoughts and frivolous ideas have merit and are thus worthy of exploring.

If the bird in your dream is ugly and drab-colored, it is a reminder that joy is something you create within yourself. It’s all in your attitude and perception. Occasionally, when you see a lot of these birds in many colors in your dream, the vision is reminding you that you create your reality. All you have to do is choose how it is perceived.

  1. What does it mean if a totem animal, in my case a hummingbird, appears in a dream, but it is no longer alive in the dream?

    Thank you for any intuition or guidance you can offer!

  2. Hummingbirds are in my area a lot, so not much of a surprise when they come by. But a few weeks ago, an Anna’s hummingbird would dip down into my backyard, suck some nectar out of one of my succulent’s flowers. It was so sweet, since it was so close to me, only ~3 feet away! The only thing between us was the glass.

      This might simply mean that you have to remember to “smell the flowers,” and as the metaphor depicts, take time to appreciate the small blessings you have in life.

  3. I found this site while searching for an answer to what I saw today. I was waiting for my son at his bus stop and I heard a buzzing next to my head. I turned around to see a hummingbird next to my head buzzing and just hanging out in the same spot. Then it flew to a stop sign in front of me and started glowing an iridescent pink color. I couldn’t believe it, I thought how could it be glowing? Then it flew off. I wondered if I was seeing things, because I haven’t been sleeping very well lately. Luckily I had my phone handy and looked up “glowing hummingbird”. Thank goodness, it is a thing and I’m not crazy. There are actually iridescent hummingbirds. Who knew?

      Not sure why I’m getting this gut feeling from you, but I’ve reading on how psychic mediums say that hummingbirds often mean a passed loved one is visiting, and while there may be no specific evidence that this is the specific interpretation out of many interpretations with this bird, that is what I’m getting with you.

    hi i’m martha,
    just dreamed of a 3 big ticks and they just in the floor. i looked at them and was amazed how fat they were. they are just there 2 big fat ticks and very shiny. i dont know what does it mean. [please help.

    1. EspionageCookie

      Fat hummingbirds might represent a need to find joy in your life by spoiling yourself for once, or simply keeping yourself happy by being well fed, if not with just treating yourself to a few sweets. Of course, too many is bad, but if you generally eat healthy and you feel physically tired too much, it might mean you’re not eating enough calories instead of the other way around sometimes. Though you can look up “self care ideas lists,” if you want more ideas on how to look after yourself even more, or think up some of your own.

  5. On the face of it Raónraon, Hummingbird seems like a sign and an animal that is the polar opposite of what it is that I’m living right now. I have had some serious health problems lately. Seizures, brain damage with increasingly failing memory. I’ve lost so many souls and am still losing so many souls that I dearly love. As a trainer, my primary occupation for the last very long while I am having a difficult time finding a new place to train the few clients that I have left and I am just not the trainer that I used to be. And, despite having lived a soul crushing life, whether it was manifested in rage, deep wracking grief or an always existing desire to be better than what I have been given, I have never ever lacked some kind of passion. I have been depressed. I have been suicidal. I have been homicidal. I have loved and had my heart broken so many times that the fragments seem like they will never fit together again. And I have made so many people fall in love with me and broken so many hearts that the sheer guilt of knowing what I have done to so many who deserved so much better than me has left me with the certainty that I deserve nothing better than the pain and the sorrow that I have always known and always seem to spread. But I have never felt this numbness, this coldness, this nihilistic darkness that engulfs me now. I don’t want to be here. I don’t want to go on. So the lightness and the energy of Raónraon seems out of place in my life right now. I have never felt less like I could identify in any way with Hummingbird than right now. But what Samuel Beckett, one of the writers that I love most of all, wrote: “I Can’t Go On. I Will Go On.”, has always echoed in my soul, and echoes far more deeply at this moment. And if there’s one thing that Hummingbird, Raónraon does more than any other creature that I can name is to Go On. Perhaps I cannot feel the joy for life that Raónraon seems to embody. Perhaps I never will again. Perhaps it feels, and will forever feel like I will never again go through life with Raónraon’s great energy and vivacity. Perhaps I can no longer believe, as I have always believed, that things will get better eventually. Perhaps my soul feels only the blackness of the darkest and coldest night. Perhaps I will never again feel like I can go on. And perhaps that is Raónraon’s message for me today. That I Will Go On. I may never again find or taste the sweet nectar and beauty of life, even at its worst. Perhaps. And perhaps not. It does feel like I can’t go on right now. But what I hear from Raónraon today, at this moment, is that I Will Go On. I cannot be the Hummingbird right now. But I can still sense her beauty, even if I cannot feel it. And that, for now, just for now, is enough. I Will Go On. Thank you, Niawen’kó:wa, Raónraon. For flying close to me today. And for being.

      Hummingbirds represent hope, and hope is not an emotion that is present when times are going perfectly in your life. Hope is defined in the sense that what you desire most in life is far from view. If the situation was not so, it would not be called “hope” but instead called “gratitude.” You might seem to have a situation very different from hope, but hope is not about feeling a certain joy at knowing things will be alright in an already obvious situation of things being okay. The more severe the tragedy, the more hope can come to life. If you look up “different types of happiness,” or “500 types of emotions,” for example, you might discover there is more complexity to emotions than just happy or sad. There are different types of happiness and different types of sadness, as there are different types of anxiety, pain, anger, surprise, love and more. Part of healing is to know what type of negative emotion you’re feeling exactly, and what type of positive emotion you require exactly. So perhaps, you cannot be happy in the sense of pure childlike joy and amazement, content satisfaction or gratitude, but yes, there is still room for hope in your life. Happiness comes in all kinds of varieties, and remember if you cannot feel happy in one way, you can always try another — whether it’s through laughter, appreciating beauty, curiosity in learning something new or relaxation rather than fun loud excitement.

  6. I accidentally hit a hummingbird with my car today. It smacked into my windshield. I was crying and praying it died quickly. I couldn’t stop, it was a busy road. What does this mean?

    1. Last night I had a dream that I was in the kitchen and I saw something inside hitting against the window screen, I said what was that? My friend approached it as it was just kind of hanging on to the screen but still trying to escape. She then hold it and low to hold, it was the most beautiful, colorful hummingbird (I still can’t get over the colors) I have ever seen in my life.
      I can’t remember what happened after that but when I woke up the next morning, the first thing I saw through my bathroom window was a black and light grey hummingbird, enjoying itself to a feast of one of my potted flowers.
      So I came here today to see what was the meaning of this!!!

    2. It means you are a person who loves hummingbirds and you are human.
      Accidents happen it doesn’t mean anything about you. I am sure the universe forgives you, especially if you are sorry and held no ill will towards the bird.

  7. Crazy story so I thought I’d share and see what others thought this meant,
    My dog, who was so much more then a dog, passed away tragically in my arms from a blood clot that traveled to her lungs and essentially shut her whole body down. She was only 6 (super heathly otherwise) and I am severally depressed and hate the thought of her not being here a week later. It has rocked our world. She was my everything and I truly believe she was sent to me to help guide my way and protect me from darkness. She was the sassiest, kind hearted warrior I’ve ever had the pleasure of spending time with.

    Anyways the first morning after she passed I was obviously in an absolute state of shock and sadness. I was calling my best friend outside to tell her the tragic news and something hit the back of my head, HARD. I thought someone had thrown something at me. I turn to see and hear a loud hum and there’s a hummingbird just hovering and staring at me, only to quickly fly away after eye contact for a moment. I’ve never seen a humming bird here before and I wonder if it was her trying to lift me up, even after she had passed so soon before her time.

    1. Jasmine Halstead

      This same exact thing happened to me after my sisters dog had passed away. I took care of her when she was little and then my sister moved to California. I was visiting her in California the week before her dogs surgery to remove a tumor. When I got back she had the surgery and she passed away during the procedure and the day after when I was going to my other sisters house I heard something behind me and when I turned around there was a humming bird eye level just hovering and staring directly at me and then it just flew away. I always thought it was my sisters dog letting me know she was okay.

    2. i hope u see this but i was shocked by how u felt about the humming bird hovering in ur face im native american from a closed reservation our culture is strong, well my grandmother said she sat outside after burrying my murdered fatber she was thinking an angrey a humming bird hovered in her face she said she knew it was my dad so yes i believe

  8. Hi! I had a dream in which Isaw two green-and-blue hummingbirds in front of a window, just flying motionlessly and looking at me. Any idea about it? Thanks in advance. 🙂

    1. The two hummingbirds are 2 opportunities that have already or will present themselves to you. They. Are flying motionless bc these opportunities are seemingly small and possibly unseen by you or sense by you which is why you don’t hear the drumming of their wings or see the motion of their wings but they are looking at you these two opportunities wondering if you’ll ever see them and take them for the ride they want to take you on maybe you think that you are not good enough or skilled enough to run after these two opportunities but what they are saying in the Stream is that you are and not to doubt yourself and they’re asking you to see them so whatever self-doubt you may be experiencing right now override that and look for the two hummingbirds which are the two opportunities because they’re waiting for you to notice them and take action and very likely they will send you into flight depending on how steward; or how well you manage these opportunities you are being given. They are staring at you saying ‘here I Am.’ ‘ Do you see me? ‘ ‘ you have been asking for me to come and now that i am here what will you do?’ I also feel like these two opportunities are only available to you for certain amount of time and then they will fly away so take action soon and don’t allow yourself any excuses good things do not come to those who wait good things come to those who take action

  9. I was looking out the window, a hummingbird was feeding, than it just fell like a rock on to rocks. I went out picked it up, was like dead but alive. I held it for like two minutes in the house, touched it back moved a bit. I than took it outside and it fled away. I watched for like an hour, never came back to drink. Hopefully in the morning🙏🙏

  10. I’m now very interested in this topic … so here’s what happened last night and some background info:
    I’m desperate to get pregnant and am going through some infertility issues
    My mom called me this am saying that she had a very profound dream and swore it was about me

    Her dream was this:
    That she was pregnant but she didn’t know Dad or me or anyone really but then all the sudden she was delivering and she delivered 3 baby hummingbirds that we’re just tiny and beautiful and somehow she felt like this was for
    Me like I would get pregnant soon.

    Any ideas on this symbolism?

  11. I also see Hummingbirds constantly, mostly at the little garden of my house. There is a beautiful poem by the persian poet Hafiz that reminds me Hummingbirds, the poem is :

    The bird’s favorite songs
    You do not hear,

    For their most flamboyant music takes place
    When their wings are stretched
    Above the trees

    And they are smoking the opium of pure freedom.

    It is healthy for the prisoner
    To have faith

    That one day he will again move about
    Whenever he wants,
    Feel the Onederous gift of Life –
    Less structured,
    Find all wounds, debts stamped cancelled,

    I once asked a bird,
    “How is it that you fly in this gravity
    Of darkness?”

    She responded,

    “Love lifts Me”

    ~ Hafiz

    I haven’t been able to find the Mohawk word for Hummingbird, which is odd, because she is definitely an animal the ancestors would have encountered. (If anyone out there knows, of knows of a source for finding the word, I would be thankful). Hummingbird speaks of joy and lightness and reminds us that many of the most beautiful things in life can only be encountered by remaining light and allowing room for joy and the appreciation for the breathtaking beauty that is existence.

  13. My dad has been very ill following surgery. Last night I dreamed of a white hummingbird. Any symbolism to my worry about my dad? I have always heard hummers are a sign of hope.

    1. that’s a beautiful symbol regarding your dad.
      several nights ago I dreamed a friend brought a white hummingbird into my home which flew onto a hibiscus flower in a bouquet on my dining room table. When I removed it, it flew onto my closet floor, leaving several feathers before I opened the screen door to let it fly out. I kept only one perfect feather, leaving the others for the friend, whoever she was. One method of dream interpretation says that every symbol represents some aspect of the dreamer (excluding spirit visitations, like when you dream of someone and discover they died at that time, which happened to me a year ago), so I’ve been meditating on each aspect: “who was the friend/why was she in my dream?”, “what is the spiritual meaning of hibiscus?” (that led to a wonderful website of spiritual flower essences), “why the dining table”, “why did it go into my closet/what does the closet represent?”, “what is the spiritual meaning of hummingbird?”, and finally, “why did I set it free?” Lots of good resources out there about spiritual meanings of animals, like Ted Andrews’ “Animal Speak”. Another way to work with your dreams is to ask each character questions, like “why are you in my dream? What do you represent? What message do you have for me?”
      Last year I actually found a baby hummer in my house which I took outside near a flowering vine, where it dove into one of the flowers and hungrily ate till it regained its strength and flew away. I was able to photograph it in my hand with my cell phone. That’s the second hummer in my house over the last 10 years but I kept a hummingbird nest for years until it finally fell apart. Also, surprisingly, they are quite the little warrior birds who migrate thousands of miles through the worst weather and fight off eagles who invade their territory. Quite the little spirit totems.

  14. I came to this site to find out if there was anybody else who had amazing spiritual experiences with hummingbirds and I was very surprised to see how many! I have had so many life altering experiences and everytime, I bird comes to me. Different birds for different reasons, but the good parts, the miracles and the life-saving experiences always brought this angelic messenger first. Nowadays, whenever I go out to the garden to pray, it comes – miraculously and flitters in front of me. Sometimes in circles and other times on a flower or tree in front of me. I am not sure what a totem bird is, but my spirit and the hummingbird’s are forever connected.
    I really am happy to see so many similar stories.

    1. Hi Diane
      I was googling Hummingbirds when I came across this site, I”m replying because I had this amazing dream this morning about a Hummingbird, before I begin in the past it seemed they were always around my husband on a constant basis. My dream begins with myself my eldest son and Jon Bon Jovi and his wife in my backyard, we walk across the street to a garage sale, my son sits down I continue to talk to the Bon Jovi’s when I look at my son he has a Hummingbird flying right beside his head the bird proceeds to go in his ear, as he enters the ear the bird changes into a Red Tail Hawk, I seen the fan of the tail feathers go in this little tiny ear hole and never came out, there was no freaking out, we all ended up in my backyard I look at my clothes line and there is this beautiful feather beige and a sienna colour pinned to the line. I have interpreted the dream, I guess my comment is not only are you going to see them in waking, if they are or will become part of your totem, dream state will clarify it. Might I suggest next summer go get a Hummingbird feeder, I’ve seen plenty of them this past summer and always brings a big smile to my face.

  15. I was starting to feel sad when watching my wife look through our bills and how it’s piling up and then at that moment I look out my front door window and saw the most beautiful green humming bird. It was the first time I seen one.And at that moment I realize that everything was going to be ok? Stay calm stay true.

  16. My sons girlfriend was telling us of an experience she had last night while visiting her dads house. She had actually posted a picture to her FB page with a picture of a hummingbird moth. Real thing look them up! But we were talking about how odd they looked and asking geez what spirit animal would she look up? Hummingbird or moth.. Everyone went in side and a little while later I went back out side. After about 1 minute this hummingbird flew up over my head hung out for a few seconds and then circled around my head 3 times. So there was my answer. Hummingbirds are so cool!

  17. Everyone on here has had some awesome experiences with hummingbirdS so I just had to share mine because it was one of well don’t even know how to put this experience in words kind of moments….. I am a paramedic and had just got done taken a patient home, has myself and my partner walked out to our ambulance we heard a humming noise, thinking it had of been a hornet or wasp that had gotten into the back of our ambulance (since this has happened many times) we were surprised when we saw a hummingbird of course I just had to take a picture ?however now came the challenge of getting this beautiful creature out of the back of this ambulance. As I opened the side down of the ambulance and stepped into the back the bird just sat on the handle that is on ceiling of the ambulance. I very calmly put my hand toward the hummingbird and she just sat there and then allowed me to pet her breast, trying to hold my excitement I then put my finger by the pole and she stepped onto it. I street walking to the back of the ambulance were the back doors layer opened and flew to the next hand rail. My partner then took my phone to take a picture as I placed my finger next to the hummingbird again and again she stepped onto my finger. Of course my partner took a couple of pictures. As I took a few more steps she flew to a back cabinet were again I was able to place my finger next to this beautiful bird and she stepped on it again. I then was able to get her to the back doors were she flew to a top branch of a near by tree. As I told my mother of this amazing in counter she told me that hummingbird must be my totem and proceeded to tell me about it. All I know is that I feel blessed to have this amazing experience in my life and will make the most of it ?

    1. Hi Mike, Im not sure that you will even get this note- but just in case you do… I wanted to respond to your message. The hummingbird (as with all creatures) is a messenger. Certainly your mother was correct in sharing that hummingbird is/was a messenger at the time (and still could be). We have many messengers coming in and out of our lives, all we need do is be present and see the creatures (including humans! trying to communicate with us.

      What is most important here, when I read your post is what hummingbird saw/sees in you. You are a gentle sentient being, just as hummingbird is. It was/is able to communicate with you because of your heart, the vibrations that you give off. You are in a helping profession Mike -there is no coincidence that this is the case. Hummingbird is showing you this and encouraging you to explore your true self. (so that is to say… what are you? why are you here? ) When you do ponder this, you will see hummingbird in a different way (but with the same heart), and other aspects of Creation will jump to life as you have never noticed before. This is called the awakening process. My dear friend, namaskar (the divine in me acknowledges and gives respect to the divine in you).

  18. I would lay in bed with my wife at night watching TV and it would sound like a Hummingbird would fly right behind my head. It would fly from my right to my left towards my wife. This happened several times. Each time I would turn my head around expecting to see a hummingbird…but never did. After several times I asked my wife “did you hear that?” She replied “no, hear what?” This went on for about 3 weeks and stopped. Then suddenly she became sick with pneumonia and ended up passing away.
    So my question is this: was the hummingbird a premonition of her death ? Also her dad who passed away years ago always liked hummingbirds. So could that have been him coming back for his daughter knowing that she was about to die?

  19. Ten years ago I was getting ready to end my life. It felt like nothing I did ever made me happy or worked out for me. I had just lost three good friends, the love of my life, My therapist moved away, and I was no longer excited about my work and on top of all that I suffered from life long debilitating depression. My childhood it been very challenging, to say the least, and it left me with a lot of scars that made it impossible for me to live a normal life. I tried and tried to be like everyone else, to fall in love to have a lasting relationship, to be intimate with someone, but I felt like I was just too screwed up and I needed to start over fresh. So I was sitting in my livingroom telling one of my last friends that I really meant to do it and just then a humming bird flew into the house, circled over our heads and flew out again. It did this over and over and over. At least were times it might’ve been eight. I knew it was a message but I didn’t know what. “Be joyful” didn’t seem to fit. But about 8 years later I figured it out by watching a youtube video where this guy was planning to kill himself and the night before he intended to do it, he had a dream that he died and ended up talking to Jesus. In the dream he told Jesus that as much as he wanted to quit drugs and alcohol for the sake of his kids and his wife, he couldn’t seem to give it up and he felt like he was ruining their lives. He told Jesus to please not send them back there because he was only going to screw up his children and he didn’t want to do that. He said he talk to Jesus for a long time and Jesus told him, “You do have a lot to deal with and we know that you are giving it your all. We’re going to take some of this off your plate” and when he woke up from that dream he knew he was no longer a drug addict. He knew his craving was gone, it had been lifted from him, and in fact he never went back to drugs. In watching that video it felt to me like that’s what the hummingbird was sent to tell me. I felt like God or Jesus was looking down and listening to me tell my friend I couldn’t bear this life anymore and they just recognized that with all I had to deal with in life, it was just too much for me, and the message they sent me was, “we are aware of your how much baggage you are carrying and we’re going to lift some of this from you, because we don’t think you can do what you came to do on earth with all of this thrown on you. “. The reason I think that is because that day and in the days following my depression slowly began to lift and I have not been depressed in 10 years. I still have plenty of issues, life is far from perfect, but I can bear it. At that time I also decided to stop focusing on myself and my own life and to start focusing on being of service to humanity since I was already here. That may be the reason my depression has gone away. Nevertheless, I know that hummingbird brought me a message from above that I was not alone and that they were taking seriously what I was going through. I felt like a decision was made for them to step in and heal me of something crippling. Without that healing I do not believe I would be good to anyone in this world and it feels like they knew I was trying my best.

    1. Your story inspired me. I had a rough upbringing, but was naive to it until I was a young adult. Thats when depression started lingering in my life. I have been going through a back and forth custody battle while working a high stress job for about a year and a half. I had court yesterday. Two days prior I remember thinking that I actually could accept the fact that I don’t want to live life anymore. Of all of the years I battled depression on and off I NEVER entertained that idea for the sake of my children. But there I was, calmly coming to terms with the idea. I went outside to smoke a cigarette and this hummingbird comes flying up to me and I back up. It lingered and watched me, so I sat down. It flew back and forth about 3 times. It was like it kept changing it’s mind on whether or not it wanted to leave. I walked back into my house thinking for a few minutes about how strangely the bird acted.
      Well the depressing thoughts went away and I got consumed with all the fast paced world noise again. So now it’s the day after court and I’m home thinking about this hummingbird again. So I read about hummingbird visits and their meaning. When I read your story I am balling halfway through because I had forgotten about the thoughts that were running through my head. That hummingbird came to me just as your came to you. I just quit my harmful job and have finally gotten on my feet a little bit. I feel like the bird came to tell me to let go, enjoy life again, and start being the person I was wanting to be.

    2. Hi Kathy, I came to this site because I had a hummingbird come up to me over the past few days, within 4 inches of my face, and just levitate and look into my soul, basically for a few minutes each time and I wanted to know what that meant.
      I scan down and start reading your story and then BAM it hits me! I too had a similar conversation with Spirit, just like you did!
      I was at work and it was a stressful, competitive and hostile environment. I was a top salesman at a law firm during the height of the great recession.
      The job paid for my living expenses but I never could get used to the negativity that came with the job.
      Finally, it got to me one day and I spoke in my mind to Spirit and said, ” I can’t take any more of this. If this continues, I’m going snap and go postal.”
      The kindest voice answered me back and said, “Do you want to go on vacation?”
      And I said, “Sure! Of course, who wouldn’t?” And I was thinking to myself “Yeah, right… Like I’m going to get to go on a vacation… Besides, it won’t take care of the fact that I’ll just have to come right back here and continue trying to make money to pay for my living expenses.”
      Then Spirit asked, “how long?”
      Then I began to think in terms of how long a realistic vacation usually last for, and I said ” I don’t know… 6 months… A year?”
      Then Spirit answered me back and said, “there will be more time if you need it.”
      Those were the most reassuring words that I had ever had spoken to me.

      Within a week, I had decided that I was no longer going to walk on eggshells in order to keep that crappy job. Because of that, I was “laid off” for inadvertently ruffling feathers.
      It was so relieving when I got handed my final checks that day.
      I got on unemployment and got by for a while and then things just sort of fell into place.
      I haven’t worked a legit full or part-time job since. My wife and I reunited and inherited her families business by default. We have a crew that takes care or the work for us and I do odd jobs but most of the time I’m at home playing Mr. Mom to my kids and taking care of the house. I get to garden as much as I like and its been a very supportive and peaceful existence.
      There have been some ups and downs but I’ve recently begun to live life in the way it was intended to be lived, “Happily”. I look for lots of little things that I can be grateful for and then start appreciating them as I recognize them. I’ve decided to try to live my life in the happiest and most joyful way as possible and it’s having a very pleasant impact on my relationships and its spread out into other areas of my life with extended family and even the people that I encounter in public. Its enriched my life experience and I’m very grateful and appreciative of it.
      So thank you for sharing your story. It’s a wonderful story and I really enjoyed connecting with you and I feel that because of our shared experience, we are kindred spirits!

  20. Benny Escontrias

    Two days ago I was at the county clerks office to sign up my Globalshift trademark for my business name and as I was entering the building a hummingbird seemed to fly or fall to the ground and laid on its back for a few seconds, as I walked up to it and was just a few inches from touching it, it flipped around and flew off. ?

  21. Today I was in my pea patch (“Grandma’s Herb Garden”), where I had just transplanted raspberry plants. I stopped for a bit, stood up, hands out and was doing REIKI so to speak on the newly transplanted raspberries – sending healing and love to the raspberries, then to the rest of the garden, then to the whole pea patch including the the birds, the bees etc. Then I heard a loud buzzing noise, and I was wondering if one of the bees was coming near, and then this very loud buzzing (very loud BIG buzzing) got so close it was right behind my head (actually touched my head or was it just the wind from the wings) and then flew off, I opened my eyes and saw a hummingbird fly away. . . It was totally awesome !!

    1. Today standing by my office door I watched a hummingbird flitter by. The whole time the bird was chirping. I didn’t even know they made this noise, but the little bird chirped and sang and went from flower to flower enjoying it’s day. It was so beautiful

  22. In my dream I was in a white room when a hummingbird came from the adjacent white room. Both rooms were empty except for a couple chairs. I think my husband was sitting in one. The hummingbird flew over to me & looked at me. Then he started gently touching (kissing) my face with his beak. It was very sweet. Then I woke up &wondered about my dream

    My father passed away a little over a year ago. It was devastating. Then I made a friend. A beautiful amazing women. So one day I thought of drawing her a hummingbird. The very next day strangely a hummingbird was hovering next to my window staring derectly at me. And all of a sudden I had this overwhelming feeling it was a sign from my father. So since then I’ve been really close to this girl, and have completely fell in love with her. And I prayed to my father for guidance since ive felt love for this girl. The bad part of this is she’s married. 🙁 she lives hundreds of miles away, and it kills me not to have her close in my life. She calls every once in a while. The crazy thing is every time she calls me, a hummingbird not always a living one it can be a picture a stuffed animal . But none the less a hummingbird appears that day. She see’s them to. But I feel in my heart thats my dad’s way of telling me not to let her go. That she’s my soulmate. And the fact that hummingbirds symbolize “love” blows me away. So ill never give up on her. I truly believe that shes my soulmate. We have this magnetic type connection the she’s even admitted to. And I truly believe one day we’ll be together. Tell me, what do you think this is? What message do you believe im getting? Please help me…

  24. In my dream there was a bright yellow hummingbird. This hummingbird had babies that needed to be fed so me and a bunch of others tried helping the mommy humingbird find food. While we were looking, the hummingbird escaped the cage we had it in. After chasing it I quickly caught it, and cheers erupted for me, it wasnt but a few seconds later that I discovered that no one noticed I had caught it and they were cheering for a football game that happened to be on. While I was holding the hummingbird it was flapping against my hands so hard that yellow feathers were flittering off. Eventually I got it back to its babies after we fed it but we never found enough food for all of the babies.

    If you have any idea on what that means please let me know.

  25.

    When my buddy passed away a few years ago it really destroyed me. Every now and then when I’m having a bad day. This hummingbird shows up, to remind me everything is going to be ok. I was doing a delivery one day for work, and Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd came on the radio. I was pretty shook up thinking about the good times. One I got out of my van there was the hummingbird hovering above my van. He stared at me for a few minutes, gave me a look and them flew away. It was pretty amazing, and then at my office once, 30 miles away the same thing. I was bummed about about my life. I got out of my car and there it was the hummingbird. Just to remind me that it’s ok. I see it as my guardian angel looking over me.

  27. I found a hummingbird in my garage this morning sitting on the ground quite still. I have no idea how it got in. I held him in my hand to warm him, tried giving him hummingbird food, and fell in love with him every second I held him. When I sat him down he would fidget and seemed upset, so I just held him for one amazing hour. He chirped once, seemed alert at times, and I called a vet hoping this meant he would be ok. He died in my hand. I cried like I haven’t in ages and have been heartbroken since.
    Later in the day, a coyote ran across my path on the road.
    I live near a nature reserve but this is alot for a suburban area, and it seems like an omen.
    Any thoughts?

  28. 😕 I live in the city of Philadelphia I have never seen a hummingbird in my life for real , just recently I have seen it on my porch I thought it was weird I don t know the meaning of this and count it as a blessing , however, is this a spirit trying to tell me something ? does anyone have an answer ?

  29. It was around 10 pm it was dark out and we seen a white light and it got closer and it was a all white hummingbird flying at night flew right in front of us it was like it was a white light it was bright everything was glowing white even the beak and it went into a tree then flew back towards us and went over us and flew away it was so beautiful and small and so detailed like if it was a angel it was glowing white its unexplainable but beautiful and wont ever forget

    1. I can’t stop wondering about this hummingbird I seen it from a block away it’s was a bright white light then it turned sideways I told my husband look a hummingbird as soon as I pointed it flew all the way to us hovered in front of us and it had no eyes no details just bright glowing solid white hummingbird well it had the body of a hummingbird I think it was a angel and my grandma had past away a little time prior to seeing it and her favorite animal was a hummingbird and I have a stained glass humming bird box and I have paper hole punched some white angels and put them in there then after a while I seen the hummingbird that looked like an angel I feel it was my grandma

  30. I was sitting one the porch one day and thinking about my life and going through a diffacult time. And all of a suddon a hummingbird flu right up in my face I mean about 4 to 6 inches away from it and my first thought was I allmost flinched as thinking is he going to take my eye out with that long beak but I stopped and didn’t move as if something stoped me and assured me I was safe it was amazing beautiful the hummingbird was there WHAT felt like a good min but it was defanitly 30 seconds I could hear his wings so loud and soothing at the same time I don’t know what it ment but I FELT better as I ran inside to tell my girlfriend what just happened to me and she said it was probably my mother telling me she was proud of me and keep on going.well it’s about 3 months ago that happened and yesterday I was sitting in my garage and all of a suddon I hear a tapping on the window I look over and there was a little yellow bird sitting on the sill looking at me an HE kept tapping like crazy and jumping up and down flapping against the window for like 2 min I finished my cigerette and went inside and told my girlfriend she came to see it was gone 3 hours later I’m having another cig and it returns DOING the same thing so I got up walk over to the window and open it IT jumped back into the Bush ONLY a foot away and sat there looking at me I don’t want to let it in might it get hurt trying to fly out another window so I closed it but I didn’t recognize what kind IT was so. I looked it up and turns out it was a female warbler and very rare to find and see . Well my life has not got any easier since the hummingbird kneading and it has gotten great at the same time I’m in big trouble for something I didn’t do and I just had a beautiful baby boy so I love mg son and thank God for him but am afraid I might get put in Jain for a while for the trouble and am looking for answers what message is this all bringing me I’m new to the whole spirit animals THING and my girlfriend is just LOVING that I am opened up in my head to consider such a thing she is all about stuff like this nature spiritual things in the universe and all that anyone know what this all means or if one of these are my spirit bird or how do I find my spirit animal I mean the hummingbird is ME to a tee and the warbler thing is crazy ?? Answers ANYONE???

    1. I knew what this meant as soon as I read it.
      The dead Hummingbird at your place of work was telling you that you are not fulling your life purpose or pursuing your dreams at all
      What’s interesting is that the numbers in the date/time of posting all synchronize with the message : The numbers add up to 6-11-8- 11-22. They then total to 22. Both 11 and 22 are master numbers and relate to creating your reality by connecting to your Soul (see Joanne Sacred Scribes for more on the numbers).There is also an 8 in there which is the Hummingbird number as their wings fly in the pattern of figure 8 which represents infinity.
      The bird symbolizes that you should not under any circumstances let your dreams die. Follow your heart. You are here for a unique purpose.

  31. A few years ago I had the most profound experience. One day I was wondering aimlessly, vent walking, you know that feeling of sheer fustration with life and the “confusion / pain” of life. So here I was one sunny day walking, feeling hopelessly when I look to my left and amognst this bush was the most beautiful divine Hummingbird I have ever seen. This bird shone bright yellow and lktrrally as i looked at this bird my perception of it shifted, literally everything slowed down, almost like slow motion and i could literally the spirit inside the birds anotomy steering its body. Intuitively, a voice told me thid bird was God and that each living thing are God. Any way long story short, talk about synchronicity, later that day i sat down and as ithought about the experience earlier that day a movie advertisement appeared on my monitor (movie called 21 Gramms), and the narrators voice stated “the human soul weighs 21 gramms, THE SAME WEIGHT AS A HUMMINGBIRD”. Well if that wasnt enough, some time later that year while i was goi g through an amazing shift (awakening) in consciousness i came across an artist online who is based in New York by the name of Alex Grey…THE MAN DREW THE EXACT SAME IMAGE I HAD WITNESSED….RAYS OF DIVINE LIGHT EMINATING OUT OF THIS HUMMINGBIRD WITH A GLOW OF LIGHT IN ITS CENTRE. AMAZING! Anyway im wondering if Hummingbirds are my animal spirit as a resultof that experience which is unlike any other encounter i have experienced thus far with a member of the animal kingdom atleast

  32. I had a wonderful dream the other night that there were over a hundred hummingbirds that just flew into my hands and they were all different colors then just as they came swooping into my arms they vanished it was truly a warm experience and one that i hope will always stay with me as long as i live

  33. I found an injury hummingbird he let me pick him up hold him cuddle him bring him home he ate duvet water off my fingernails a few hours he was ready to fly I set him free. I am a native America I believe this was a symbol but I don’t know what other than joy. I have joy. Who was this. I have never had encounters with really any birds He is a totem but I struggle to find the who what why

  34. After my mom transitioned, I use to go into her bedroom & look out the window as she did regularly, On one occasion a hyminbird appeared from know were and it was beautiful, It seemed to speak to my soul, It flap wings and look at me for about two minutes and disappeared, I will never forget that day, and I have been secretly wishing it happens again.

  35. 12/29 dream
    I was being told that when I would have great change for myself- something would appear and transform me.

    I was at a school with someone being and I was fearful to meet with a woman that was heavy set and known for being mean.

    I was preparing myself with the person I was walking with as I turned the corner and ran into her.

    Instead of fear taking over- a green backed hummingbird stopped time. (The movie sound of time warping and the sensation of pure joy and happiness consumed me as it’s wings slowly fluttered and my sight was fixated on it. It turned it’s side and the honeycomb-like green speckles on it’s back glistened in the sun light. I was consumed in love and time went back to normal.) I didn’t hesitate, I greeted her with the largest smile and love in my heart genuinely happy to meeting with her. She was so happy to see me too. The hummingbird was beautiful, and large while it stopped time to make eye contact with me. When it did, its eyes locked with mine felt like it instantly transferred the desire to be happy, joyous & full of love. When I heard that sound that stopped time makes, like the ones in movies, I focused on the wings and the honeycomb shape in it’s green back and as it glistened it made me feel overwhelmed with love and time was back to normal as I floated out of that trance and into greeting this heavy set woman people feared.

    My partner and I were picked up by the rest of the crew also on the same journey and I was able to say that I saw it. I was passionate about what I saw and the support of those 5 in the car helped me feel alive.

    The heavy set woman could be closely described as the boss from wanted.

    I just woke up from this dream and have only this last year started to learn about spirit animals. I’ve always been surrounded by hummingbirds my whole life. I haven’t seen one in 3 months until my dream. I’ve been experiencing so much change in my life that sometimes I feel anxiety is taking over- only BC I feel there’s a message I have to uncover and pursue.

    I’ve recently changed careers working for bad business leaders to make a difference using my skills for good and focusing on education, specifically those with special needs. I’ve opened up The School of Meaning all from listening to what’s around me, the needs of the people I’m meant to reach. This probably sounds totally nuts- but I’m floored at how vivid this dream was.

    Any insight would be well received.

  36. Hello all many things have happened to me for starters I see bb sized bubbles every now and then once at 8 am then at 1:30pm I heard a coworker say something she swore she didn’t say. With the time difference of 5 hours and 30 min at 3:50 pm that day in front our store I saw a car get hit by another car. I was told to meditate from one of my friends before I go to bed and right when I wake up the first time I tried I repeatedly said fox saw nothing then started saying wolf. After saying it a third time I saw an white image of a wolf just the head looking straight at me. A couple weeks later I stated trying to meditate on a moth one morning after saw moth 2 to 3 times I saw what looked like a moth slowly flying towards me with with what looked like a pair of I phone eat buds trailing behind it leaving a trail of white steaks finally when it got to my point of view it perked up its antenna then I opened my eyes. Just this morning I was meditating on humming bird I saw what looked like a purple feather then I saw a small bird flying towards the left side of my view it’d feathers were a purple tint. I’ve had many strange things happen to being at a neighbors house while sitting for them then hearing a bible verse Matthew 7 7:8 nkv play as if someone was in the room reading it off I believe there is a god and have been blessed with many miracles I just feel like I being spiritually targeted by something I studying reiki right now and has given me some insight but I’m looking for answers and have been visting this website quite often I anxiously await feedback

  37. A few days ago It was 11pm and I was visited by a humminbird. It fluttered around for me for like 45 seconds then came about a foot from my face, looked at me for a few seconds then fluttered away. This happened the day after i heard of a friend that was sent a hawk by her spirit guides. I asked for a sign from my guides. and i got that^^^ (((:

    1. That just happened to me!!! I feel so blessed Yes, I asked for a signal, because I so needed one.

  38. ❗ my mom has been passed for 10 years now.. and every since she’s been gone my life all of a sudden has been consumed with hummingbirds. She loved them and on her death bed I whispered to her to return as one. I have seen them in abundance every since. I even got a tatoo behind my left ear in memory of her. Are they a sign… ❓

    1. Sounds like you already know that answer. It is your mother letting you know she is still alive and is with you in spirit. What a awesome experience you have with the awesome little bird. 💡

  39. I see Ravens/Crows, and Turkey Vultures on a daily basis. As well as Dragon flies that zoom right at my head than turn and disappear. I know these are Huge signs from Spirit. It’s like I’m being spoken to. But, nothing ever follows. I’m sure a lot of it has to with a particular man that I know. He’s going thru some major life issues. So I gather these signs as well as others are telling me to hang on, cause changes are coming.?

    1. Hello Dianne: The signs are for you and no one else. Own them. Pay attention to the quotation boxes at the top of each animals page – the messages will be specific to you. Pay attention to the messages even if they don’t seem relevant to you. I assure you that they are and that you must incorporate the wisdom into yourself.

  40. Hi there! 1 other experience – came across a dead baby frog on the area of windshield wipers of a car? What does seeing a dead baby frog bring? Very curious about this as well, since don’t usually see frogs a lot. Please advise. Thanks so much 🙂

  41. Hi! About a month ago, I felt compelled to look out the window, so I did and saw a bird, I think it was a hummingbird, flying in the infinity pattern exactly in the middle of my huge backyard! It did this consecutively 2 or 3 times, then flew away. What exactly does this mean? Then the other night, I heard 2 or 3 Owls having a conversation. Is there a message as to why I heard the Owl conversation? The Owl is definitely my totem. See them all the time! I know they represent major transformation for me, which I have been in major transformation on all levels, but was wondering if any other message in there I may not be seeing right now in addition to the Hummingbird Infinity pattern message ?

    1. Hi Marj: Pay close attention to the Quotation box when you come back to this page – it will give you a message specific to you with regards to your Hummingbird.

    2. I just had a dream of me running from fear and as I turned the corner a humming bird came out from behind a tree. It flew towards me and poked me with its beak on the right side of my neck. What does this mean?
