My mother lived nearly her entire childhood with extra family members in their house.  It was always just a given that loved ones had a place to stay there, and later, in other homes.  Of hers, and mine.

             The images that were shown to me this morning all reflect that concept.  That “welcome” attitude.  There was a spacious, as well as, generous emotion to all that I saw and felt.

Secure generational housing.

             The configuration of relationships, the floor-plans or layouts, are unimportant.  The valuable and salient point today is of safe life.  Mi casa, es su casa, for reals.

             Like, here ya go, here’s some safe downtime.  No worrying over where to sleep or how to heal.  A bed and meal are available.

             It’s truly how I grew up, how my parents were raised, and the only type of household my children knew.  This reminder is for us all though, just in case.

             As I stood before our card altar earlier, with these gracious and caring scenes still running through my head, I knew that we would rejoin the regular rotation, because our daily draw would give us the final validation.  And, it did.

“Hummingbird  ~  44  ~  Joy

Hummingbird can give us the medicine to solve the riddle of the contradiction of duality.

The song of Hummingbird awakens the medicine flowers, she sings a vibration of pure joy.   Flowers love Hummingbird because the releasing of nectar brings about the reproduction of their families.  Plants flower and live because of Hummingbird.

Hummingbird can fly in any direction, she can also hover in one spot and appear to be motionless.  Great Spirit created Hummingbird to be slightly different from other feathered creatures.

Because of their magical qualities, Hummingbird feathers have been used for a millennium in the making of love charms.  It is said that Hummingbird conjures love as no other medicine does, and that Hummingbird feathers open the heart.  Without an open and loving heart, you can never taste the nectar and pure bliss of life.  To Brother and Sister Hummingbird, life is a wonderland of delight – darting from one beautiful flower to another, tasting the essences, and radiating the colors.

 Hummingbird holds the Bow of Beauty which is  delicately inlaid with gold and silver flowers, pearls, and precious jewels.  She disdains ugliness or harshness, and quickly flies away from discord or disharmony.

If Hummingbird has flown into your cards, get ready to laugh musically and enjoy Creator’s many gifts.  Drop your judgmental attitude and relax.  Hummingbird will no doubt give you a flash of the spirit, darting here, there, and everywhere .

Get ready for a strange new burst of energy which may send your senses reeling.

Hummingbird hears celestial music and is in harmony with it.  She may invite you to an art museum or a concert.  Hummingbird energetically embraces the highest aesthetics.

Never be course in front of Hummingbird, for this is a fragile medicine which may have no understanding of worldly affairs   Beauty is the target, and Hummingbird’s mission is to spread joy or to be destroyed.  Hummingbird quickly dies if caged, caught, or imprisoned.

Follow Sister Hummingbird and you will soon be filled with paroxysms of joy, and experience a renewal of the magic of living.”

Today’s Gratitude:

is a huge and heartfelt thanks! to the Universe, for putting kindness in my path.

I took this so you could see how long my hair was getting.  But then realized that it's kinda too dark.  Oh well, it's the newest view, so I'm keeping it.

  1. Great message. There was always room at the table for one more when I was growing up, and some of my fondest Thanksgiving memories are from when I was working and I would have co-workers join us at our 8:30 p.m. Thanksgiving dinners, or my Dad’s co-workers would join us, or when some of my Mom’s waifs and strays from her teaching days would come by.

    The Mrs. and I lived with her aunt and uncle while she finished her last term of college, our niece has lived with us the past two years as she finishes her general ed at LCC getting ready for her transfer to Central Washington University, and our Christmas dinner last year had 10 people at the table, none of whom have family in the area.

    What is very cool is that my friend Mary’s Mom is visiting and plans to move out here this summer to live with Mary; she loves hummingbirds, and I will have to direct her to this post.

    Yes, do share! How perfect.

  2. I find it very humorous that Hummingbirds are linked to love. They do not play well with others, at all. VERY territorial. I’ve seen them body slam other birds right off the tree branch they were sitting on. 😀 Guess the lover affair is just with the flowers!

    Love and JOY,
