Be Your Own Hummingbirdfeatured

Too often we get caught up in the darkness of life. We become fearful of the dark that we block any light that has the potential to come in..

Actually we run away from the light, the sweetness of life, because who think who am I to deserve a beautiful life? As Marianne William says, who are you not to?

“…Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

We were not born to remain in the darkness. We were meant to shine. We must learn to remove the untrue layers of ourself so we can make room for the sweetness of life.

imagesThe symbol is the hummingbird and it’s here to teach us the beauty of life. Once we find our wings we must find our own light energy to soar so we can share our light and sweetness with others, for maybe that will be discovered to find their own.

First we must learn to soar for ourselves. We must take the time to drink the nectar of life and know in our hearts that this is who we really are, this is who we have always been.

Listen to the sound of the hummingbird as it flaps its wings and fly’s to discover the nectar of life.

Create new thoughts so you can begin to believe in and feel your inner hummingbird. Instead of remaining fearful find the courage to discover your nectar and sweetness of life.

Be the hummingbird. Most importantly, be your own unique hummingbird and discover the sweetness life has to offer you.
