The thought (actually guidance from within) came to me that the hummingbirds would be coming soon and it was time to put out the hummingbird feeder and prepare the hummingbird water. I forgot about it. The very next day a hummingbird appeared at our home back window. I forgot about it again. A couple days later a hummingbird returned again and there was nothing for her. So I finally did it. I hope she comes back again and does not give up on us. I asked the Beloved Guides about what I was to learn from this.
Here’s the answer I received from them:
Have faith, the hummingbirds will return, and you will enjoy them for the rest of the season. There is a very good lesson here. You can call it the hummingbird lesson, and let it serve you well. It is about receiving guidance and following it in a timely manner. In this case acting on your guidance about the hummingbirds. When you have a thought to do something, do it as soon as it needs to be done. We have shared this with you many times.
The opportunity is there for you to hear guidance all the time. When you listen the very first time, it doesn’t have to come back, possibly with difficult ramifications. It comes back as an opportunity for you to become a stronger and clearer channel for Spirit to come through as you listen to it and follow the guidance quicker and quicker. Doing it clears your energy field so you don’t have this hanging around in your mind thinking that you have to do it. It wastes so much energy. When your mind is clear, you become more and more aware, a better listener and follower of your guidance from within.
The external is giving you the opportunity to actually see the guidance show up in your life. As you tune in quicker, your life is easier. At that point more can be given to you to accomplish in the way of living your life with more grace and ease in divine timing and order.
There really is a divine timing and order. Life does not have to be difficult. It really can be easy when you tune in sooner and see the results in your life. Guidance is happening all around you all the time. There are hummingbird lessons everywhere. They just look different. They are people, places, books, and so many other things that are constant reminders of what to do or not do. So why not listen sooner, so the guidance doesn’t have to keep repeating itself or keep getting more difficult until you finally listen. Life could be a lot easier than it is.
Try it for the next 24 hours, and see what happens when you get a thought (guidance from within) about doing something, and you actually do it, even the tiniest thing. It will be a delightful surprise, and make you smile, and you will remember the hummingbird lesson.
