Here’s how you know that these messages come THROUGH me and not from me. I have never been a proponent of setting goals nor efficient productivity. In fact, I’m the one who said our family motto was, “half-assed is good enough.”
This morning I woke up singing along to Willie Nelson. And knowing that the Universe believes in us. Believes in us to the fullest extent possible.
Since we know that this adventure isn’t about the money or the stuff, we can’t afford to be dragged down. We need to be wishing on stars and hoping for rainbows; having complete and unwavering faith in ourselves.
If we aren’t out there striving for excellence, then what are we doing? And yes, it absolutely can be done without the often painful, heated competition. We’re not in a race and we’re not counting points. We simply are doing the best that we can.
Returning to our regular rotation around the card altar, we’ve been handed the perfect validation. This one is such a gift, on so many levels. (And one of my personal favorites.)
“Hummingbird ~ 44 ~ Joy”
Because it arrived with a not-quiet-straightforward presentation, I’m being advised to show some of both aspects.
The song of Hummingbird awakens the medicine flowers. She sings a vibration of joy. Flowers love Hummingbird because nectar release brings about the reproduction of their families. Plants flower and live because of Hummingbird.
Hummingbird holds the Bow of Beauty . . . . 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.
Follow Sister Hummingbird and you will soon be filled with paroxysms of joy, and experience a renewal of the magic of living.
If upside-down Hummingbird is in your spread, in any configuration, it speaks to you of matters of the heart.
How or why has your heart center closed off? Have you done something callous to another, causing them to shut off the love they once felt for you?
The contrary Hummingbird may presage sorrow and the inability to see your many blessings . . . .
If contrary Hummingbird sings its forlorn song, perhaps you should journey into your personal pain and know that your sorrow is your joy in another reflection.”
