Hummingbirds hold spiritual significance in many cultures. Because of their speed, the hummingbird is known as a messenger and stopper of time. With their infinity-shaped wing patterns, they are a symbol for eternity and rebirth, helping us to know that healing can be found in the present moment.
Like the hummingbird's flight, our path to enlightenment is also non-linear. As we move through adversity and adapt, we spiral back to parts of us we thought were long gone, again humbling us to the fact that we are only human. Both the hummingbird and lotus have lessons to teach us; in reality, we -are- the present moment. We may perceive ourselves as moving forward or backward, but the wisdom of the heart knows that what we are is the totality of consciousness as existence.
