Readers share their stories here at Hummingbird Shaman about transition, passage, and signs from above. Somehow we know, from the very start, when we see something that isn’t so “ordinary”. Sometimes it’s the timing, or a pattern.
If there are signs, like a hummingbird sign from above, what does that mean?
Perhaps it is to make a statement, that our time spent together is nothing trivial, that even though the body is gone, our love still remains? We do so much more in this world than survive, we live within our values. Our torch never dims, it is simply handed on to those around us to carry on.
D’s Hummingbird Story
I see a hummingbird every month. Has not failed for the last ten months. My father passed almost ten months ago. His passing changed the dynamic of my family. My mother, my brothers and sister use to be very close and do everything together, now everyone does their own thing since dad was the one who would always pull us together. I have tried really hard not to fall into a depression, after about the 3rd month from his passing it started to hit me that he was gone. I was very close to him so i have been feeling very sad most of my days. My first encounter with a hummingbird after his passing was during his open casket viewing. The hummingbird came out of the casket, it was beautiful but did not think anything of it. I figured it was there because of all the flower. I live in high raise building and have a balcony and every month a hummingbird comes to my balcony. I am on the 12 floor and have no flowers or food out on the balcony which makes it odd that the hummingbird keeps coming. Now i really connect it with my father since i started to connect the dots that every month when it comes its between the days my father went into a comma and was declared brain dead. This usually happens between the 21st and the 24th of each month and usually that’s the time i think about him the most and affects me emotionally. Now when I see the hummingbird I always feel as if my father is here with me and makes me feel better. This is too much coincidence
Hummingbird Sign From Above
Isn’t it wonderful that our world has a place for the unlikely, or the unusual? A hummingbird returning month after month to a 12th story window with no feeder or flowers? It is not just the hummingbird returning, but its presence being seen and known. What a great sign, a reminder of one who only left the physical overcoat behind, not the love, nor the circle created.
This hummingbird sign from above, where is above? Is it from the heavens, with a soul reaching out through a nature spirit to connect with another still here in the world? Or is the sign from above through the recipient of the message, the one who has seen the hummingbird at the service, and the hummingbird returning? Moving forward, who can carry the torch? Life is described by many as the beating of the heart. With each day we are in the world we have another chance to share that life, and love, with the world. All those years together, those are the fuel to keep the torch burning. Aho.
