Animal symbolism & Animal Totems or Animal Medicine is shared across cultures all over the world, mainly passed on through stories and teachings in Indigenous cultures. Mother Earth has many lessons to teach us, and she connects us with our animal brethren to remind us that we share this world with an unimaginable amount of intuitive and intelligent beings. A symbolic encounter can be at any level – it could be a random sighting of an animal you don’t normally see, or an animal appearing in your dreams. Basically, the animal making itself known to you. Take these encounters to heart and use the lessons animal medicine teaches us to improve ourselves and respect the natural world around us.
Hummingbirds are the gemstones of the bird kingdom, bearing the most incredible iridescence. In Peru, the Blue-tailed Emerald and Royal Sunangel are just two of the species that mirror the magnificence we see in gemstones. To see a hummingbird is an omen of joy. It’s easy to forget that happiness is in this moment when we get so distracted by everything else going on. Hummingbirds are gentle. Be kind to yourself. You are full of your own shimmering iridescence, and you’ll be amazed how much joy is in this moment when you allow yourself to see that rainbow.
