Hummingbird Don’t Fly Away

corner tree 1

These flowers on a tree in our yard usually attract hundreds of bees. This year I haven’t seen any yet, but yesterday I saw two hummingbirds in it.  And this morning when I was out, one zipped by my head on it’s way by.  I wanted to know what Hummingbird was trying to tell me so I looked it up.  According to my animal medicine book, Hummingbird is Joy.  I am to get ready to laugh musically and enjoy Creator’s many gifts.  I am to drop my judgmental attitude and relax.  I am to get ready for a strange new burst of energy which may send my senses reeling.  Hummingbird disdains ugliness or harshness and quickly flies away from discord or disharmony.  So for today, that is what I will do.

Mindful Meditation


This morning I skipped my usual meditation practice and decided to do a walking meditation.  Bob, Josie and I set out this morning and my intention was to just pay attention to my feet for the first half hour.  I noticed the feel of the pavement, the way the arch of my foot felt in my shoes, the rhythmic pace of my stride, heel, toe, heel, toe.  I noticed how the earth felt softer when I hit the dirt road, and even softer when I got to the beach.  I noticed how at times my heel felt lower than my toes and how my toes felt.  I felt a wave hit the outside of my shoe as it came up the beach and the clumps of lake weed and stones underneath me.  And then I started to feel gratitude for my ankle that bends at the perfect angle to allow my feet not to flop around at the end of my leg.  Then gratitude for my legs to carry me, for my lungs to breathe the air and my heart for pumping my blood.  It was a great mediation.  I think I should do this more often.
