Animal Medicine Part 3: Message from Hummingbird

Aug. 30th 2011 1:26 PM

As you might imagine given my name, I have a special relationship with hummingbirds. About 15 years ago, while sitting in circle with a Native American elder, we were asked to pull an animal medicine card as our totem animal (the card deck and book are entitled “Medicine Cards” by Jamie Sams & David Carson). I received hummingbird and its message was about Joy! Over the years, I’ve come across a number of books, cards, posters etc. that convey similar messages. However, it has been in watching and communicating with hummingbirds directly that I have received the deepest messages. Some years ago when I felt it was time to choose my last name (to replace the surname I had at the time), I said a prayer asking for assistance and guidance. Three visits from hummingbird hovering right in front of my face made the choice obvious. Whenever I am visited by hummingbirds, I always feel joy and uplifted. In fact, as I have been typing this post now, a little hummingbird has hummed her song and hovered at the glass feeder outside of my office window while enjoying the sweet drink. What a gift!

If you have not already connected with a particular animal as a totem or helper in your life, perhaps you might like to consider asking for one as a way to assist you along your path.

Following is an excerpt from the Medicine Card book to learn more about the medicine of Hummingbird:

Course Description

Telepathic Animal Communication is a natural way of communicating between all living beings…and everyone can learn how – all it takes is training and practice!

This class will teach you about the nature of intuition and telepathic communication, and key steps you can practice at home.  Most of us who love animals are already experiencing this amazing connection with the animals in our lives, and we simply need to become aware and open our hearts to deeper understanding.

  • Learn how to quiet and focus your attention.
  • Practice opening the channel to transmit messages with animals and to receive what they communicate telepathically in thoughts, images, impressions, feelings, messages.
  • Discover blocks to communicating with animals and how to overcome them.
  • Enjoy exercises that open your heart, increase your awareness and understanding of animals and your receptivity to telepathic communication.
  • Learn how to experience animals’ perspectives, how you may have already communicated telepathically with animals, and how to expand on that.
  • Discover how nurturing a heart-centered connection can enhance your relationships with your animal companions, bringing clearer understanding about their needs, behaviors, wishes, humor, wisdom and purpose in our lives.

Experience what it is like to expand into an entirely new level of communicating with your animal friends. I invite you to open your heart and mind to this natural and intuitive connection!  This class is appropriate for everyone ~ won’t you join us?
