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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    • 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.

  • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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!!!

  • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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

  • 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?

  • 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 :
    SHE RESPONDED

    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,
    Paid.

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

    She responded,

    “Love lifts Me”

    ~ Hafiz

  • HUMMINGBIRD – SPIRIT ANIMAL
    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.

    • 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.

  • 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.

    • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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 ?

    • 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).

  • 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?

  • 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.

    • 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!

    • 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.

  • 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. ?
