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.

  • 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 !!

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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?

    • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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
