Close Encounters Of The Hummingbird Kind

Have you ever had a time when similar things come in waves, unexpected, from many directions? Today someone shared a story about scanning websites for dog adoptions, and lo and behold a dog appeared in her yard, sat in front of her, and stayed. Was it a sign? She happily reunited dog with it’s owner.

“A hummingbird hovered within arms reach”

Over the past week I have received many comments, all of those comments sharing a very similar experience. “A hummingbird hovered within arms reach”. What attracts a hummingbird to hover and watch a person?

The answer is as unique for everyone as our lives are different. We do have similarities, though, shared experiences. So many have shared their stories about hummingbird encounters. These encounters have been related to a type of spiritual awakening, an unconscious calling out for a sign, a reset in time. Some have shared that they knew that the hummingbird encounter was a sign from a loved one who’d passed.

I have come to appreciate each of these encounters with the hummingbirds that have engrained themselves in my life. In times of introspection, asking for answers, or signs, the hummingbirds have appeared. The photo is of one of the hummingbirds who have adopted my garden as home.

Thank you to everyone who shares their stories. Please continue to comment on posts, and share your own hummingbird experiences. Comments help the reach of the website, like reaching your hand out to another person who is seeking an answer.

God bless,

I love the image you share, “baby hummingbird” – yes they have a simple child-like interaction with the world in their early days! Isn’t it incredible the way this little bird can open your heart and draw you in to its indescribable world? LOL I’m right there, with you!! You’ve inspired a post on the topic of “still lost for words”, alas, to be shared this week on the fall equinox. Stay tuned!!
