Is it a Sign? When Nature Intrudes into our Mental World

Our lives in these modern times offers so much, but it is also quite removed from nature. For the most part we go through life engaged in the interactivity and awareness of the human world at a frequency that is very different than the pace in nature. Most of our “hunting” and “guarding” these days tends to fall within our own little world, in our perceptions and inner thoughts that we then use to measure the world around us.

Is it a Sign? Our Instincts

Our hunting and guarding instincts come quite naturally, but don’t really fully fit in the definition of primal. “Hunting” tends to fall in the categories of going to work, earning a paycheck, and shopping at the local market for todays meals. “Guarding” focuses more on locking our doors and knowing how to drive without damage in our over-crowded highways. We teach our young how to survive in this world on this so-called advanced level by teaching them numbers, names, history, and other skills that help them to survive on their own in this mental-focused world. The closest we may get in our bridge between people-skills and nature might be the sports we play as we test our physical abilities.

Removed from Nature

Are we so far removed from nature? Some people would say yes, and their connection to nature is little more than entertainment and landscaping. Does this mean that we can live so disconnected from interaction between people and wildlife? No, there are far too many occasions when this division is breeched by some experience that catches one’s attention, and they walk away wondering, “What does this mean?”, or, “Is this a sign?”

When Nature Intrudes It’s a Sign

How do these “signs” appear? These shifts in consciousness could come in many different forms. Some will see a creature from the wildlife world appear at a place that seems unusual. Sometimes it’s as simple as, “I never see those birds”, yet they suddenly appear during times when a mental shift or support is needed. These events often cause us to snap out of our mental spin, but we’re so used to our mental fiasco that the impression is perceived almost in an opposite way: the spin seems so normal that the calmness of nature feels .. disturbing.

The Origin of these “Signs”

Where do these “shifts” originate? Is it nature singling us out like an act of mercy?  Is it our own superconsciousness making another attempt to pull our day-to-day consciousness out of the patterns that lull us out of fully participating in our own lives?  Or is it both, an agreement or bond we have in that great unseen connective web where we ripple in and out of our experiences?

We Live For Another Awakening Moment

Life is amazing in the way that we create so many interactions throughout every single day. Falling into that slumber of repetition lets us feel safe and familiar, and when we finally snap out of that waking hypnotic state through something different or out of place we have a chance in that split second to feel a sense of equality between our physical world and our spiritual presence. Hummingbird encounters, or any other nature-based wonderments are gifts, but the real gift comes from within when we open ourselves to stepping outside of what we call “normal”.

    I used to have hummingbirds in Texas. I toughht about putting a feeder out in our yard here in NY (in the summer) but I’m concerned the sugar water would attract wasps. We went to a hummingbird sanctuary nearby and there were a lot of wasps around the feeders. Any toughhts / tips?

    • Bees and wasps can be a problem with hummingbird feeders. You can choose a feeder with the feeding openings on the top, where the sugar water does not come in direct contact with the opening. The other feeders with openings where the sugar water is in place by gravity will give bees access, but there are yellow cages that keep the bees from the food. You might want to add a wasp trap away from your feeders, they can attract the meat eating wasp away from the hummingbirds. Use caution not to kill bees, though, they are beneficial and not aggressive.
