[HummingBird]

In the Native American tradition the HummingBird represents Heart's Joy, the number 44. Hummer spreads joy wherever it goes. It will die trying to bring joy where needed. True heart's joy can only come from our union with our divine self: divine union. Heart's joy can only be realized in sovereignty. The number 44 is the life path number of celeste:crystalfaery.

On 1995-06-08 i flew from Colorado to Hawai'i, thereby leaving behind the land of hummingbirds. Fairly quickly i was adopted by dolphins, who thereby became my 'aumakua', my protector spirits. In the Native American Medicine Cards, Dolphin-Mana is number 40, and is about 'breath'. In Native Hawaiian tradition, breath, "ha" is spirit, as it is in many traditions, thus inspiration (to inhale = to be filled with spirit), and also this is the root of the perjorative naming of the "white people" by the "kanaka maoli", as "ha-a'ole" those who are "without the breath of life, without spirit, soulless, (ego-based)".
[no, I'm not going to regurgitate the mythology nor his-story of that mis-directed drama.]
The mana / prana / chi / life-force energy of spirit is key to a spiritual life.
When i would swim in the ocean far from shore at Waikiki in my early Hawaiian days, a passing sailboat captain shouted out and asked:
"What! You fall off a boat?"
i replied:
"No! i swam out here!"
as i habitually swam out for 45 minutes, then turned around and swim back in to shore.
The exchange continued:
"Aren't you afraid of sharks?"
"No, i swim with Dolphin spirits!"
i have written elsewhere in my blog about we Crystal Faeries working with the Dolphins and Whales.
These days, knowing i am one of the Crystal Faeries, i tend to think of Hummers and Faeries as very related. With no Hummers in our realm, and spending most of my time on land rather than in the Kai (ocean), i think more of all Fae as my family, beyond my smaller ohana (family) of Crystal Faeries, and so, transcending the Medicine Cards, my strongest aumukua these days are Faeries, the hummers of the higher realms.
