Mighty Hummingbirds

Others and I have been experiencing so many hummingbird synchronicities of late that I felt called to give them their own post! I’ve noticed the hummingbird presence building for awhile, interlaced with amazing connections and weaving, past and present. Without going into too many personal details, Tania Marie and I have a friend who has floated in and out of our lives at various times. She used to live near me, and she and Tania had their paths cross somewhere else after being virtually introduced by me.

Very long story short, a few weeks ago, I realized I had forgotten to reply to an email from our mutual friend. Somehow that email disappeared, but while searching for it, my iPhone kicked out an email from June 2010 as the most recent correspondence. Um, not so, but whatever, iPhone! The strangeness caught my attention, so I read the email it brought forth. In that email, I just happened to be describing a bizarre series of synchronicities involving “this guy,” who turned out to be none other than David! It was clear from the email that I had zero idea that he and I would one day wind up living together and eventually become “a thing.” I had only mentioned the truly odd and intricate synchronicities in passing as an explanation for an entirely different connection and event my friend had asked me about.

My crazy iPhone did not indicate I had ever answered one of my friend’s questions back in 2010. In case I really hadn’t answered her 2010 question, I sent off an updated June 2012 reply with the requested answer. She emailed me a day later saying what perfect timing and that “you have no idea what an amazing answer this is for me.” She felt she wasn’t ready for the answer back in 2010, had discovered it herself since then, and my email came through as a strong confirmation from the Universe. Part of that email conversation involved questions about Runes for a tattoo, which Tania began to design.

It’s a hummingbird, with the Wunjo Rune, also known as the “Happily Ever After Rune” or the Rune of fulfillment and joy. By the time Tania posted the design, this was actually my second hummingbird of the week. After last Sunday’s Raph Channeling event, a group of us spent some time on the shore of Pretty Lake, WI, marveling at giant dragonflies and talking about elves and faeries. All of a sudden, one of the biggest and most distinctive hummingbirds any of us had ever seen grabbed our attention. I didn’t even make the connection between the tattoo and the magical hummingbird until a swarm of hummingbird happenings unfolded in a very short time.

Last night, I commented to my friend Gillian on her post about the “Dark Knight” False Flag event:

“Blessings to you! Thanks for shining a light on the cockroaches. If we keep shining, they will leave. … Wow, just saw a hummingbird as I typed that!

“Hummingbirds’s Wisdom Includes:

Ability to heal by using light as a laser from mouth
Endurance over long journeys
Ability to fly into small places to heal
Joy
Happiness
Love

(From animalspirits.com)”

Gillian replied:

“:) I totally LOVE hummingbirds. Thanks for sharing. ~G”

Then, another commenter, Raven, added:

“I totally love hummingbirds too. I’m looking at a whole flock of them outside my window as I write this… just wow. They are our tiniest angels, miracles with wings.”

“What’s up with the hummingbirds?” I thought. The hummingbird wisdom from Animal Spirits resonated, but I guess there was more to ponder. This morning, an email arrived from my Sedona friend, Toni:

“The last three mornings – a hummingbird has been outside the bedroom sliding glass door off the balcony. And if I’m downstairs he (or she) is fluttering off the deck! 😉

Hummingbird – Tireless Joy and the Nectar of Life – Animal Speak – Ted Andrews 😉 ”

Later, I got a text from my friend, Ingrid, that she “saw the most adorable hummingbird mug last week on the square.”

Tania’s been having hummingbird synchronicities, too. So … what is up with the hummingbirds?

According to Native American Mythology:

“Hummingbirds are found only in the western hemisphere, so they are absent from the traditional fairy tales, legends, and myths of European and African Americans. There is, however, a rich supply of stories about these tiny birds in Native American mythology.

“A Mayan legend says the hummingbird is actually the sun in disguise, and he is trying to court a beautiful woman, who is the moon.

“Another Mayan legend says the first two hummingbirds were created from the small feather scraps left over from the construction of other birds. The god who made the hummers was so pleased he had an elaborate wedding ceremony for them. First butterflies marked out a room, then flower petals fell on the ground to make a carpet; spiders spun webs to make a bridal pathway, then the sun sent down rays which caused the tiny groom to glow with dazzling reds and greens. The wedding guests noticed that whenever he turned away from the sun, he became drab again like the original gray feathers from which he was made.

“A third Mayan legend speaks of a hummingbird piercing the tongue of ancient kings. When the blood was poured on sacred scrolls and burned, divine ancestors appeared in the smoke.”

In the Incan Medicine Wheel, we see four animals, one for each direction. According to Shaman, Healer and Sage, Alberto Villoldo, “Serpent represents the binding principle; jaguar is the renewing force; hummingbird represents the epic journey of evolution and growth; and eagle or condor stands for the self-transcending principle. Heaven is the creative force; Earth is the receptive force. When you summon them, you align yourself with the forces that animate all life.”

Coming full circle with the hummingbird synchronicities, I just noticed that Tania finished painting her version of the Incan Medicine Wheel the same week I sent that 2010 email to our hummingbird tattoo friend.

Whatever these little powerhouses mean, they are making their presence known. With potent healing and the ability to shine joy and light into hard to reach places, hummingbirds bring magic and delight wherever they go. They remind us that, indeed, “there are no small miracles.” Blessed Be.

Interview with Inelia Benz

I forget which Facebook friend sent me this video way back in June, but I finally got a chance to watch it today. Perfect timing, as always. I’ve been having soooo many Avalon coincidences lately — enough that I finally picked up The Mists of Avalon, a nearly 900 page novel, which has been sitting on my shelf since September. For those who don’t know, The Mists of Avalon tells the Arthurian Legends from the perspective of the women, especially “Morgaine of the Fairies.”

Most people who know me and/or follow this blog, know that I rather enjoy the faeries. A Druid who follows the Runa Faery Tradition helped me unravel enough mysteries to launch myself out of a particularly binding timeline, and I have been a fan of Runes, Faery Rules and alternate timelines ever since. With the frequency of Synchronicity as a force in my life, I have always remained quite conscious of time, timing and the potential to change a lifetime through a moment. I’ve shared these insights with some clients who had interest, but recently the concept has been nagging at me to write about.

Quite synchronously, while reading The Mists of Avalon and pondering all the Avalon references of late, I saw an AVALON license plate, which led me to look up “Project Avalon” on Google. I landed on their site, only to find the following video I had meant to watch this summer. It turns out the video covers so many of the things most on my mind and heart to share right now: alternate timelines, choosing and empowering a more positive personal timeline, how the individual affects the collective, raising the vibration of this planet, as well as the discernment between spiritual gifts sought for themselves rather than as a means of raising the overall vibration and healing the planet.

I will write about these topics in more detail another time, but I encourage everyone to watch the full video. The last 16 minutes really discuss the alternate collective timelines; however, Inelia is just a delight throughout. It’s so refreshing to hear and see someone so clear and non-ego-oriented sharing her light and experiences with the world. She says she has never had a previous lifetime on Earth, and in doing a quick intuitive read on her energy, I have to say, I believe her. I’ve had many of the same sorts of healing encounters in my life, especially while recovering from my brain injury. I would get instructions to walk somewhere or sit somewhere, and something would always happen. Ditto regarding some of the behind the scenes work I’ve been asked to do. The sharing of others’ dreams and synchronicities as validation has also happened to me and many of my friends and clients. I can’t say that I’ve had zero past lives here, though. 🙂

In any case, I’m sharing a bit of my own resonance with her as support of what she shares here. I know some of her story sounds kind of “out there,” especially how she discusses parallel realities and points in time. It’s quite difficult to explain, and most people don’t understand me when I start referencing the options. I really appreciate how Inelia introduces the topic and then weaves elaboration throughout her talk. She is a bright spirit and a joy to have on this planet right now. I hope you can make time for the full hour and 43 minutes. For more from Inelia, you can check out her website here.

I love people who empower others to awaken and empower themselves and others. We live in a vibrational universe, and ripples create powerful, amplifying effects. Namaste!

Synchronicity Update: I just realized that I’ve linked to an Inelia article before. I hadn’t realized that she runs Ascension101. Highly recommended! What a small, interconnected, infinite world. 🙂

The Jung and the Restless: Synchronicity, Inner Guidance and Tarot

Regular readers of my blog know that I’m a huge fan of synchronicity and “reading” signs. With a Masters Degree in English, I’ve simply expanded my definition of “text” to include this entire living, breathing Universe. I thought I’d share some perspectives on synchronicity and how it pertains to inner guidance, seeking and finding, and divination (specifically tarot).

“Synchronistic meetings are like mirrors that reflect something of ourselves. If we want to grow spiritually, all we have to do is take a good look. Synchronicity holds the promise that if we want to change inside, the patterns of our external life will change as well.” ~Jean Shinoda Bolen

“According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don’t bother you anymore. You become light hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous.” ~Deepak Chopra

“Synchronicity hints at the unified world behind the illusory veil of the material universe.” ~Roger S. Jones

“Synchronicity is choreographed by a great, pervasive intelligence that lies at the heart of nature, and is manifest in each of us through intuitive knowledge.” ~Deepak Chopra

Carl Jung defined synchronicity as “meaningful coincidence.” According to Jung, “We can predict the future when we know how the present moment has evolved out of the past.” In times of unclear guidance, some prayer, meditation and divination tools like the tarot can help to understand how your past and present are currently influencing your future. By mimicking the subconscious energy patterns of a client at any given time, tarot cards make invisible vibrations tangible. A spread can reveal operative archetypes, storylines, or make sense of complex relationships. Tarot shows synchronicity and vibrational attraction in action. This line of thinking, along with Jung’s extensive work on the Shadow, gave me the idea for one of my November 2011 specials. With November 30 rapidly approaching, I decided to relist them here, as they seem related to today’s post.


Shadow Work Tarot to Heal Karmic Ties

This one hour phone or in-person reading features my interpretation of a special tarot spread, combined with my ability to tune in to multiple past lives and the patterns they create. I’ve received such positive feedback regarding each of these services, but I had never thought to unite them in a single reading. Having received the idea, though, I immediately recognized its power. The cards never lie, and they help us to get in touch with archetypes that structure our reality. Using the Major Arcana to understand our shadow side –including those lifetimes for which we may still be punishing ourselves or others — allows us to integrate that shadow and ultimately release it into the light.

Offer valid until November 30. You may purchase it at any time during that window, but you do not need to schedule it prior to the 30th. That said, given the energies on this planet right now, my guides suggest sooner rather than later, as the more people address their shadow side, the more active Lightworkers we have holding a positive vibration for the coming transitions. $111 for the hour. Please email me for an invoice and to schedule. brunoleaf at yahoo dot com

$77 Spirit Guide Readings

This half hour reading may also be double booked as a single hour long discussion. We all have Spirit Guides and invisible support systems, but not everyone knows who these are. I’ve also noticed the need for discernment to make sure that whoever you’re asking for help has the Highest Good of All in mind. I sometimes find people have accepted tricksters or malevolent entities as “guides,” not unlike the way a narcissist will create “problems” just so s/he can “save” the person and create a sense of obligation. These false guides can then drain energy, cause confusion, and separate the person from their natural connection to Pure Source Energy. More often, I notice that clients feel they need to take quantum leaps of faith all alone. They might quasi-trust the Universe to support them, but they long for a more intimate relationship with real helpers.

A person’s Spirit Guides often turn out to be the main nudge for someone booking a reading with me, but I’ve never offered a separate service just to help people identify and connect more deeply with their guides. These may include angels, devas, faeries, leprechauns, animal spirits, Ancestors, or phenomena like rainbows. You won’t learn every single guide in a half hour or hour discussion, but you will learn (or have affirmed) the ones most appropriate for your current challenges, as well as the ones who’ve taken a special interest in you throughout your lifetime(s).

This offer runs through the end of November. As long as you prepay by 11/30/11, you may schedule anytime after you’ve paid. Your guides will give you a sense of what feels right in terms of timing. Again, please email me for scheduling and an invoice. brunoleaf at yahoo dot com.

Since I have many international clients, please do include your time zone/location and any preferred time/date windows when you query. That saves a few steps! Many Blessings, Much Love and Peace to you!
