I was in Glastonbury, staying a few days upto autumn solstice. There was a lot of negative energy floating about their- at one point I felt like this energy was taking over me not feeling just my own shadow side, but humanity's. I thought I was at a point where I was going to die.
It was at this point that I went to a special healing garden and I prayed like I never prayed before- I was literally saying 'god help me'. There has only been a few other occassions like this in my life.
Suddenly I felt this divine energy go through my body and I saw the world needs to open upto love. This voice told me that I must spread god's message of love and do god's work.
It was so profound. It was like after the darkness came the light.
After experiencing this message and opened my eyes and everything was beautiful- the colours of the flowers was the most intense thing I ever saw. For those few momments even though I had glasses, I didn't need to use them. I could see perfectly.
They say that man is trying to open the heart chakra at the moment and this might explain why there is a lot of negativity floating about and that has been enhanced by the mars factor. In order to receive the light, I suppose man's own darkness must be felt. Glastonbury is also known as the 'heart of england'
Hummingbirds symbolize joy, miracles, and accomplishing the impossible. They are also closely linked to infinity (their wings beat a figure 8 or infinity sign when hovering) indicating connections to the past and future, and their close tie with flowers reflects cause and effect as they cannot live without the nectar but many flowers they feed from rely on them for pollination.
They remind us not only to work hard but to find joy in our work - ever notice how when you're happy you can catch yourself humming? They are very independent and fearless yet seem to play no matter what they're doing. Hummingbirds are the only bird that can fly backwards symbolizing an ability to explore and draw from the past.
All in all, hummingbirds are an auspicious sign reminding us to not hesitate and to grab joy where and when we can.
From what I know of Hummingbirds...they represent the absolulte Highest JOY! Isn't that wonderful that you would have that message during that time of asking for help? The Message of Joy.
Hummingbirds are a 'totem animal' for some - maybe this is your Totem Animal! Read below for it's significance.
Hummingbird: messenger, timelessness
Hummingbird - the tiniest of all birds - brings special messages for us. It is the only creature that can stop dead while traveling at full speed. It can hover, or can go forward, backward, up or down. It lives on nectar and searches for the sweetness of life. Its long tongue lets it bypass the often tough and bitter outer layer to find the hidden treasures underneath. Hummingbird is loved by the flowers and plants, for as it sucks the nectar from the flower, the plant reproduces and more of its kind are created. In many traditions, Hummingbird feathers have been prized for their almost magical qualities. It is said that Hummingbird brings love as no other medicine can, and its presence brings joy to the observer.
If you have Hummingbird medicine, you adapt easily to whatever situation you may find yourself in, and make the most of your new circumstances. You don't waste time looking back and wishing for "what was" for you are concerned with making the most of "what is". Also, you could never become addicted to any artificial stimulants, for you find joy in your own heart. You take great pleasure in spreading joy and love and beauty to all around you, and have the gift of taking that inner joy into new and different surroundings. (*this was the Message you received, also!) You have a talent for finding the good in people, and are not put off by a gruff or abrupt exterior, for you know that, if you can only get beyond that tough outside layer, you'll find goodness and beauty inside. You may have a gift for working with flowers, maybe growing them to share with others, or using flower essences for healing. Aroma therapy may be your calling. You have high energy and a spirit that must be free. To restrict that wonderful, free, loving energy is to suffer great depressions and feelings of uselessness. Hummingbird must fly free in search of beauty, spreading joy and love to all it touches.
Hummingbird ~~ messenger, timelessness, healing and joy.
Just wanted to say that we have hummingbirds fly up to our living room window every summer day from April until they leave our area to migrate.
They are incredibly beautiful to watch.
We even had one fly right into our living once,
I am amazed at how fast their wings move.
It was trying so hard to fly out the livingroom window that it just plain wore it self out.
We were able to finally catch it in a show box placed it on the railing of sundeck and allow it to recuperate, which it did, but meanwhile i was able to take a closer look at its beauty.
It was a brilliant green color and i thought how could something so small have so much energy.
I felt lucky that i was able to see it up so closely.
It was a really great experience.
It's good to hear from you. How are you? I'm really looking forward to the harmonic concordance- it's a chance for us light beings to expand big time. Thanks for your post. it's so nice to be able to share something special with like minded people.
Yes, I am working in healing. I am training to be a naturopathic osteopath at the moment. I feel my real calling is in Naturopathy and I hope one day to practice in America, Canada or Australia. At the moment I'm trying a really interesting therapy- Bach flower skin zones. This german naturopath had divided the body into different skin zones and where there is a pain or ache you apply the specific flower located in that zone. You use a compress- (cloth dipped in the diluted flower solution for 10 minutes) and what it does is help to restore the bodies auric field and to flood out the negative emotions. Progress has been good- but of course you do experience extreme emotions as some of the old negative blockages are released.
I am beginning to understand now after numerous health problems, that once you restore the spiritual aspect to the disease or problem, then physical symptoms will disappear a lot faster.
After a little bit of research, I think the hummingbird that appeared may not be a hummingbird afterall. I was looking at the english society for the protection of birds and they said that it is near impossible to find a humming bird in england, but apparently a type of moth has been commonly mistaken during the last few summers called the 'hummingbird hawkmoth'.
Hmm maybe it carries spiritual significance as both a hummingbird and a moth?
Wow! Isn't that pretty cool that you're in the Healing Arts AND you're working with Bach's flower remedies! cool. I think your totem animal MUST be the Hummingbird! I just looked up the Hummingbird Hawkmoth and WOW what a creature! I think that what you saw was VERY special - by the sounds of it not many people get to see those magical-looking creatures. Guess you have to combine Hummingbird, Hawk and Moth all wrapped up in one! (Hawk is about Sight and Vision and Seeing...not sure about Moths)
I work with the Bach Flower's too - but not the way you are - I love the sounds of what you're doing...
Over the past 2 weeks when I walk into work of all places, I have been buzzed by a hummingbird several times. Sometimes it flies around me and then perches on a branch right near me and looks at me as if it has something wonderful to say. So it was good to read of your experience as well!
