So one of the things I’m striving to do in this new year is to set my intention for the day before I get up out of bed. I try to connect with my guides, my angels and let them know that I am willing and open to receiving miracles throughout the day. I ask for concrete signs to let me know what my next steps should be (usually in terms of my healing business and optometry degrees these days).
Well, today, I went to water my lavender plant outside and all of a sudden, a hummingbird came up within a couple feet of me, waited for me to notice it (which wasn’t hard to do considering I’ve rarely seen hummingbirds in our area before), and then it flew away. But there was a connection, even for a brief couple of moments, enough for me to notice its semi-reddish chest and its overall darker brown body. I have no idea if the hummingbird above is the correct type I saw but it was the closest one in the quick search I did.
So what does that mean for me? Well, when I think of hummingbirds, I think wow, how fast and how conscious they are! To know when to hover, when to go back or forth, up or down… Hummingbirds have to eat a lot in order to expend the tons of energy that is required in moving where they want to go. So I think that this little hummingbird who stopped to say hi was actively doing so to remind me to be conscious today about where I’m going, what I’m doing at every moment.
I’m thankful for the reminder. What little miracles are you allowing in your life today?
