The Symbolism of Hummingbird Charms

The hummingbird is considered a symbol for many different concepts. The speed of a hummingbird adds to its mystique as a messenger and stopper of time. It’s also widely regarded as a symbol of love, joy, and beauty.

Many see its ability to fly backwards as an analogy that we can look back on our past, but we shouldn’t dwell on it and be able to move forward. As the hummingbird hovers over flowers while drinking nectar, we should also savour each moment, and appreciate the things we love.

In Native American legend, a hummingbird symbolizes timeless joy and the nectar of life. It is a symbol for accomplishing things that seem impossible, and will teach you how to find the joy of living under your own life circumstances.
