Hummingbird: What it Means. Even though the hummingbird is the smallest bird of all, it performs great feats. It flies more than 3, km to escape the cold and look for food. Since it moves its wings constantly, it requires lots of energy. The hummingbird symbolizes joy, tireless energy, and adaptability.
The hummingbird invites us to remember that the sweetest nectar is inside us. Like the hummingbird, which flies long distances to get its food, we can enjoy the fruits of our labor if we dedicate ourselves to our craft and our goals with persistence and resilience. Sharing our process with others will breed more creativity. The hummingbird also symbolizes healing. As a memoir writer, I believe in the power of words and stories to heal myself, and others, so I strongly identify with this meaning.

The rest of the dream was rather strange. I tried to tell someone about the experience, but that did not work and then was told , quoting from the Bible that it was evil!!!
