Because of its speed, the hummingbird is known as a messenger and stopper of time. It is also a symbol of love, joy, and beauty. The hummingbird is also able to fly backwards, teaching us that we can look back on our past. But, this bird also teaches that we must not dwell on our past; we need to move forward. When the hummingbird hovers over flowers while drinking nectar, we learn that we should savour each moment, and appreciate the things we love.It is not commonly known that the fluttering wings of the hummingbird move in the pattern of an infinity symbol – further solidifying their symbolism of eternity, continuity, and infinity. In legends, the Hummingbird is often portrayed as a healer or as a spirit being who helps people in need.The hummingbird symbolism is related to happiness and joy. It appears out of nowhere and spreads happiness and joy into the lives of those that it passes. She is a symbol of all good things that exist.
