Yesterday I was walking and for the first time I saw this strange creature. I thought it was a hummingbird and I was surprised cause I didn’t think hummingbirds were in Iraq and it was very small. Turns out it was a Hummingbird moth! (this is not my photo but just giving you an idea of the creature i saw.) 10/20/2012
What I found interesting was the symbolism behind this creature:
Hummingbird Moths are different from most moths as they are active during the day. This makes them a very significant totem animal. They are moths so they will allow insight into mysteries and dreams but since they are active during the day, their energy is very similar to that of butterflies.
The hummingbird moth totem will aid you in achieving depths of inner and outer exploration far beyond the ordinary. As a symbol of personal transformation, your spirit helper will hover ever-near to assist in all those changes within yourself and within your environment that are necessary for you to attain the highest levels of enlightenment.
This insect is extremely sensitive to the Harmony of Earth, and is the first creature to leave a damaged ecology. Hummingbird moth’s graceful dancing-like appearance on flowers reminds us to find the joy in nature and make it a part of our life.
Hummingbird moth enters our life as a messenger for change. It may take some time being alone with ourselves to listen to hummingbird moth’s gentle requests that we allow the natural transformation of things in our lives.….
