The solar plexus chakra is associated with the archetype of hummingbird, as a symbol of confidence, courage and joy. Hummingbirds also show us that the impossible is possible.
In some native cultures, hummingbirds are the totems of the soul. They are called upon to retrieve parts of the soul lost to trauma, illness or grief. When we lose a part of our soul, we lose a part of our self, which diminishes our confidence, courage and joy. This is feeling of loss is often held in the solar plexus. Hummingbird retrieves our soul parts by shedding light on who we were before the loss. By consciously reconnecting with that aspect of our self we remember who we truly are. From this perspective we can rewrite our soul’s story from a place of joy.
The hummingbird’s ability to migrate long distances and hover in the air like a helicopter, makes it an almost mythical creature. This mythical realm of the hummingbird transcends time and space for it exists in our ability to imagine and dream.
They inspire us to see life as a mythic tale that can be rewritten.
Hummingbird is associated with the North direction as the place of our spirit guides and ancestors. By believing in our ability to connect with the wisdom, support and love that is available to us we begin to believe in ourselves as well.
The solar plexus represents the power of our internal light. When we feel that our light is diminishing, we can call on the energy of hummingbird to remind us of our ability to shift our perspective and remember the joy that empowers us.
Message: Whatever is challenging us can be transformed to our favor if we approach it from a place of grace. The hero’s journey inspires us to move through obstacles as we seek to know our soul’s purpose.Imagine life as a sacred fairytale filled with twists, turns and wonder. As the author of our story we can writea new story. Remember that the impossible is possible when we believe in ourselves.
“Awakening to one’s true self-radiant nature is ultimate spiritual and emotional healing.” – Rajita Sivananda (Dr. Judith Cornell)
