    Qualities of the Hummingbird

    I have been doing some research about animal totems and have been playing closer attention to what animals cross my path each day. I have seen wild turkeys, a mink, bees, chipmunks, lots of birds and many other animals. I came across some information that suggested looking at animals in your life and what they represent. As of late, I have been intrigued by the hummingbird as it occassionally flies into my life.

    It is not commonly known that the fluttering wings of the hummingbird move in the pattern of an infinity symbol – further solidifying their symbolism of eternity, continuity, and infinity. By observing the hummingbird, we see they are seemingly tireless. Always actively seeking the sweetest nectar, they remind us to forever seek out the good in life and the beauty in each day.
    They are amazing migrators and some Hummingbirds are known to wing their way as far as 3000 km to reach their destination. This quality reminds us to be persistent in the persuit of our dreams, and adopt the tenacity of the Hummingbird in our lives. The Hummingbird animal totem is a messenger of hope and jubilation.

    The most profound questions the Hummingbird asks is:
    Where is your joy?
    Is your happiness found within, or do you seek it externally?
    What is the source of your joy?
    What must you do to increase your joy?
