                                                                    -Lao Tzu

The Meaning of Colibrí

Colibrí, which is pronounced ¨koli´bri¨  translates to hummingbird.  The hummingbird has multiple symbolism, including love, joy, and beauty.

 

They are believed to be creatures that can open our hearts for  healing. These birds are able to fly backwards, reminding us of the need to acknowledge our past, while focusing on  moving forward. The hummingbird nurtures themselves by drinking the nectar of the flowers, reminding us of the need to savor every moment, embrace the present, and appreciate the things we love. They are incredible migrators, reminding us that we must be persistent in the pursuit of our dreams, and embrace the tenacity of the hummingbird in our lives.
