Hummingbirds are pure joy; their vibrating wings are a breath of pure joyous vitality as they feed from the nectar of flowers, delighting the eye with their astounding, iridescent colors. And yet hummingbird is also a fearless defender of her young, and her territory, and anyone who has ever experienced being “buzzed” by a hummingbird will also appreciate the fearless curiosity they often have.

Sacred to the peoples of South America, Quetzalcoatl’s nagual, or animal totem, was the hummingbird. Hummingbird is a Messenger, a stopper of time, and embodies optimism and sweetness. Hummingbird magic is the magic of joy, living utterly within the beauty of the iridescent moment, learning to nurture and feed our own spirits from the “nectar of flowers“, from the essences of inspiration.
