Are Hummingbirds symbols of good luck?

Here's a frequent question I get about the Hummingbird:

Hummingbird Totem Animal ~ Symbol of Endurance, Flexibility & Adaptability

Taking a 3,000 mile journey each way during it's migration from Central America up into North America, goings as far north as Alaska it faces many daunting challenges. 

Some Hummingbirds fly over 500 miles of open water spanning the Gulf of Mexico on their migration (with no places for a rest or a break). That's nothing short of astounding if you think about it, and therefore Hummingbird totem animal is a magnificent symbol of endurance.

One of the most fascinating things about the Hummingbird is that on it's migration it returns to the very same gardens year after year, and it is very territorial!   It boldly claims the gardens it visits as it's own, and allows no trespassers.  

The Hummingbird will launch an all out aerial attack on any intruder, as the nectar in the garden is the needed sustenance for the journey.  

In this way Hummingbird meaning as a totem animal symbolizes the respect of territories, protecting  and enforcing your boundaries, the need to be feisty if needed to protect your boundaries and what is yours.  

With their wings beating incredibly rapidly, Hummingbirds have incredible energy but at the same time burn a lot of juice, needing frequent refueling

Spiritual Meaning of Hummingbird 

The spiritual attributes of Hummingbird meaning symbolizes preparation and attention to details. 

The need to be prepared for your journeys, attend to the small details,  take your energy into consideration and don't over extend yourself, take frequent breaks to nourish yourself.  

This message from the Hummingbird extends to the spiritual path as well. 

The journey of Spirit will take you far... into new realms, here you will face challenges of new ideas and boundaries of the mind, your new ways of being may be challenged by others, this is when you will have to defend the territories of your new beliefs.

Hummingbird Meaning ~ Power Animal 

Hummingbird power animal meaning reminds us that there are times when we have to make a difficult journey to get to the destination of our goal, there will be obstacles, symbolizing the need for endurance and perseverance. 

Hummingbird challenges you to say "yes I can", and believe it will be done. 

Another challenge from the Hummingbird spirit guide can also be a signal that you are not experiencing enough joy in your life, look to simple ways in which you can begin increasing your joy. 

Native American Meaning of the hummingbird 

In Native American folklore tribes attribute the symbolism of joy, speed and endurance to the Hummingbird.

Hummingbird is also a sign that a deceased loved one may be bringing you a message of comfort.

For you to know the meaning meant for you, ask the Hummingbird spirit guide to reveal the message it has for you.  Hummingbird is a powerful messenger, honor and take the message to heart.   

Hummingbird meaning and folklore can come to you when you least expect it!

Hummingbird Dream Symbolism 

What does it mean to dream about Hummingbirds?

Hummingbird visits in dreams have significant meaning!

Let's begin with everyone has their own special kind of magic, they were born with it, and meant to use it.

When you dream of the hummingbird it can mean that in order to work your special kind of "law of attraction" magic regarding your big goals and dreams, you may need to relocate to a spot that is more in tune with who you are. 

Don't be surprised if this means moving cross country, or even to another part of the world.   

If for instance your dream was to run chartered boat tours and you live in the mountains, you'll have to relocate to a place that supports the fulfillment of your vision. 

You may have to begin to make some very big changes in your lifestyle to even make the move, this is all about where you decide to focus your energy and allocation of assets. 

Just like the hummingbird who takes incredible journeys to find the resources it needs to thrive, you may be spinning your wheels trying to get things to fall into place at your current locale. 

Hummingbird may be saying that there's a much better spot that will help you bring your dreams to reality.

Hummingbird symbolism in dreams can be a sign that you need to pay close attention to your energy, and what you may be wasting your energy on.
