Humming Birds – This is also a ubiquitous bird used with our loved ones who have passed. With observation, Mother figures (including grandmothers, aunts, and even sisters who were like a mother to us and etc.) will use this bird as their sign. With the mother’s that I have seen use this sign all come in with very motherly instinct. We all know that hummingbirds are fast, zippy, and curious. With this sign, it comes with the notion, that they will always be there for you in a heartbeat. They will also linger around and get your attention until you feel better, relieving all doubt, fear, and anxiety that you may be feeling at that moment. Lot’s of love and admirations comes with watching the hummingbird, being used by motherly figures. One of the biggest validations that I get from my loved ones when they use the hummingbird is that they will sit, perch, and stay awhile. Not zipping around but sitting still. I have had them do this with me for several moments. One of the biggest reasons why the other side will encourage birds, butterflies, and dragonflies to visit us, is it gets our attention, and very quickly it will stop us on our track. Every moment of stillness is a moment of connectedness. We can feel them, hear them, etc, but we have to physically associate this feeling with something physical. It’s brilliant and fascinating that they will bring such beauty to us just for a moment of connectdness. There is always more than the physical eye can see, especially when a spirit is involved. But if we observe and are open that all things are possible you will notice signs are present everywhere.
Remember signs are different for everyone. This can be a sign used by other friends and family members. This notion comes from observing the other side. More commonly it is used with mother figures, but I have seen others use it too.
In Native American culture, hummingbirds are seen as healers and bringers of love, good luck, and joy. In Central America, they are a sign of love and will bring love to the person who spots them. The hummingbird generally symbolizes joy and playfulness, as well as adaptability – www.worldbirds.org
