Live in the present moment wisely and earnestly

Dream … Birds

My dream …small flighty humming birds in a big transparent tank. The tank is just rectangular, very basic plain glass of about a meter-ish, nothing fanciful, yet the birds appear fine.

Except there was this baby bird that seemed to be lost, weak, a few metres away, which I found it, and tried to brush it onto a newspaper to carry it back to its family, supposedly in the glass tank. It must be such a baby, because it seemed that its feather was not fully grown. That was why I felt I couldn’t take it by the hand, and actually brushed it up the newspaper. Its eyes were not fully opened either. A few times, it rolled around till it dropped out again. I managed to finally bring it back to the tank.

The little baby bird definitely did not seem to have fully developed its consciousness.

The other humming birds were flighty, energectic. A number of them were flapping their wings, like dancing, balancing in mid air. Why they were doing this, I am not sure, as I do not recall seeing flowers there. Still, it was full of life. There was a sense of joy, well even though it wasn’t the overflowing type, it was a sense of cheeriness. YES, this is the word – Cheery.

Then as I walked off, after somehow putting the little baby humming bird back (actually I think I assumed it was a humming bird, as there was only small humming birds around and the baby was tiny too, despite it was still greyish. Come to think about it , how a bird landed in the mid of the corridor?) … Anyway, back to as I walked off, the humming birds actually became the background in the glass tank, and I saw many white owls in the foreground! They weren’t solo animals, they were hanging around in a group. Then, one turned its head around, as is if looking at me or us, such big round eyes! And such snow white feathers!

Strange dream.

They were in a tank but I sensed there was a big opening on top, and the birds are free to go. The glass tank did not feel like a cage, holding back the birds’ freedom. It felt more like a protection, and keeping us, humans away, able to watch them, with a distance or barrier , so we can keep our respect and awe.

I sense I really like them and I am in a sense of awe. I constantly felt keep a distance unless they want to approach me. When not ready, just watch and be glad I have found them. This is how I feel. That feeling that I should not change how things are, or the word is “affect” the proper-ness of that world hmmmm

The hummingbird spirit animal symbolizes the enjoyment of life and lightness of being. Those who have the hummingbird as a totem are invited to enjoy the sweetness of life, lift up negativity wherever it creeps in and express love more fully in their daily endeavors. This fascinating bird is capable of the most amazing feats despite its small size, such as traveling great distances or being able to fly backwards. By affinity with the hummingbird, those who have this bird as totem may be encouraged to develop their adaptability and resiliency while keeping a playful and optimistic outlook.

Perhaps, that baby humming bird is me (Haha come to think about it, it was a bit more plump than the adult hummingbird, just like I am a bit over-weight haha). I am still at infancy stage when it comes to enjoying life. Life is dwelling about responsibility, though not as heavy self brought upon burden as it used to be. “Develop adaptability and resilency while keeping playful and optimistic outlook.”

The hummingbird and the power of swiftness and flexibility

The hummingbird is one of the most fascinating birds because of its ability to move its body swiftly, change direction quickly and smoothly, seemingly gliding from one place to another. By affinity with this power animal, you can be encouraged to use or develop a similar skill.

When the hummingbird shows up in your life, it may be an invitation to flex you path, perhaps even bending backward or forward, in order to accommodate life’s circumstances. You may be required to adapt to a situation that is a bit more demanding than usual. The wisdom carried by this spirit animal emphasizes flexibility and lightness in your approach to the unexpected.

The hummingbird, a power animal indicative of strong sensibility

By association with the hummingbird power animal, you may have already developed a strong adaptability and are typically quick to respond to any demand. You may also have a high sensibility and feel every nuances of emotions or movement in your environment.

Brought to the extreme, this ability may lead you to emotional instability as you shift rapidly from one feeling or mood to another without warning. The hummingbird totem wisdom could challenge you to figure out how to stand strong while being able to move quickly and fly high, whether it’s through your personal or spiritual aspirations.

Those who have that bird as totem are characterized by their resiliency and their ability to run great distances tirelessly. Inspired by this totem, you will be inclined to accomplish what seems impossible to most while keeping it light and enjoyable.

The hummingbird is known for burning a lot of energy quickly to keep flying and therefore needs to find sources of food constantly. If you have the hummingbird as a totem, you may benefit from resting often and taking time to feed yourself with enough, whether it’s physically, emotionally or spiritually, to keep going.

The hummingbird symbolizes many different concepts. Because of its speed, the hummingbird is known as a messenger and stopper of time. It is also a symbol of love, joy, and beauty. The hummingbird is also able to fly backwards, teaching us that we can look back on our past. But, this bird also teaches that we must not dwell on our past; we need to move forward. When the hummingbird hovers over flowers while drinking nectar, we learn that we should savour each moment, and appreciate the things we love.

The hummingbird has powerful spiritual significance. In the Andes of South America the hummingbird is a symbol of resurrection. It seems to die on cold nights, but comes back to life again at sunrise.

Hummingbird is the creature that opens the heart. When the hurt that caused us to close our hearts gets a chance to heal, our hearts are free to open again.

With hummingbird consciousness, we learn the truth of beauty. Our life becomes a wonderland of delights in flowers, aromas and tastes. We laugh and enjoy creation, we appreciate the magic of the present moment, and the magic of being alive.

Hummingbird teaches us the medicinal properties of plants and how to work with the energy of flowers to heal ourselves and others. Hummingbirds teach us fierce independence. They teach us to fight in a way where no one gets hurt. They teach us courage. Having the courage to refrain from creating new trauma by communicating non-violently toward ourselves and others is an important part of healing. Recovering lost parts of ourselves enables us to become healthily independent.

It is not commonly known that the fluttering wings of the hummingbird move in the pattern of an infinity symbol – further solidifying their symbolism of eternity, continuity, and infinity.

By observing the Hummingbird, we see they are seemingly tireless. Always actively seeking the sweetest nectar, they remind us to forever seek out the good in life and the beauty in each day. Amazing migrators, some Hummingbirds are known to wing their way as far as 2000 miles to reach their destination. This quality reminds us to be persistent in the pursuit of our dreams, and adopt the tenacity of the Hummingbird in our lives.

In Native American culture, a hummingbird symbolizes timless joy and the Nectar of Life. It’s a symbol for accomplishing that which seems impossible and will teach you how to find the miracle of joyful living from your own life circumstances.

They are really spectacular birds, and have a lot to teach a person about self discovery and healing.

It stands for immortality. Or sometimes the Sun.

Hummingbird is seen by some as a messenger of love and joy. It symbolises energy, wonder and swift action. It is associated with the Ghost Spirit native American religion which teaches a dance that is intended to return the natural balance of the world.

When Hummingbird flits by:

Know that it is time for you to aggressively pursue your dreams and make them a reality. Joy is just around the corner – you simply have to believe that your dreams are possible to manifest now. Stop waiting and go for it! Alternatively perhaps it is time to ask yourself and meditate upon these questions: “Where is your joy?”, “Can you find happiness within yourself?”, and “How can you increase the happiness in your life?”

When Hummingbird is your Animal Totem:

You are a messenger of hope and jubilation. You aggressively seek out those that need inspiration and renewal and bring forth the best in them. You are loyal, playful and persistent.

When Hummingbird thrums through your dreams;

Suggests that seemingly small ideas and concepts often possess a lot of potential and power. Alternatively, it can symbolize your flighty thoughts and frivolous ideas have merit and should be explored.


* * * * * *


That baby hummingbird is pretty much me, or this phase of me. I need to nurture myself to full energy to flit around to make dreams come through. I need to grow to be this energy of hope, sun, renewal, resurrection.

The nurturing seems to mean I need alone time.




It is already 25 October. I have still been thinking of the dream often. The images are still clear.

I sense I could not seethe little bird, except giving it well wishes to grow strong, full of vitality soon. All I see is the owls, and perhaps the little bird is behind the owls. Even the hummingbirds are being sensed, instead of seen.


 25 October New dream … related to school, to work, to should I go or not …

What is exactly my role now?

Of course, get myself heal. The balance of my different aspects.

Have to speed up?





Align with Inner/True Self. Absence of Resistance. Alignment with Universe, with Source

It is 2012 1st day of the Lunar Dragon Year : )

Time flies ?! But what is time? This linear time passing concept?

At this moment, I actually feel time is not that crucial, unless we made good use of it to get some learning OR creation done hmmmmm

Few years ago, when I first started this 1st blog “always advancing”, I have strong intention of constantly improving oneself, and particularly as a teacher to the younger minds. Now, there’s a slight difference: I feel I need to be more than advancing for the younger minds, I need to advance spiritually, internally, so much as intellect and wisdom are some part of this advancement. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO TRANSFORMATION – the change, the channeling of my energy and being, the discard of negativity and absorption of postive energy that is, as it is, for reaching the HIGHEST SELF.

Strange. As this seems to mean I need to focus more on myself, which means less on outside myself. ( A message reminded by ruddy Roberto : ) )

TODAY, guess the important task is to CLEANSE in every sense. Not fully know how, OR it is due to hard to let go of old ways of habit and thoughts. I’ll persevere, making every step forward till I MOVE FORWARD POSITIVELY quite entirely. Perhaps, with the help of this blog: write, reflect, recollect memories and move on : ), and perhaps do so with a touch of creativity 🙂  ?
