SOUL TRAVEL RULES: “Hummingbirds and Their Symbolic Spiritual Meaning”

Ascension Avatar note: I’d been meaning to look up ‘hummingbird omens’ because they often fly to my window if I’m inside, hover and look right at me, as if to deliver a specific message, then zip, zip away… it’s a trip. I thought one might’ve been a message from my Dad. Last week a baby eagle came and perched by my window and let me sing to it… with my cat watching. I find singing to birds and animals probably better communication than speaking, but I’m saving this for an article I started in May, called “Animal Talk”…

There are so many myths that have been woven around Hummingbirds.

Hummingbirds are generally believed to carry messages from spirits. Americans believe that these birds have healing abilities and they bring fortune sent by spirits and angels as well. These legends and myths can’t be verified. But one thing can be said for sure that the Hummingbirds spread happiness and positivity around.

Symbolism Associated

These birds are one of the smallest birds and are very light-weighted too. This gives them an edge in flying; they can fly upwards, backwards and can change directions effortlessly.

These light-weighted birds are hence very adaptable. They act as an inspiration to the human beings as we can learn to be adaptable from them. This ability can lend us new perspective, which may prove very helpful.

Their weight can also teach us to get lightened up and do away with all our fears and sorrows. They flap their wings in patterns which symbolises infinity to some extent.

These birds feed on the nectar of fruit, symbolising sweetness. The sweetness is essential to humanity. The nectar of fruits is one of the most important symbols of joy and happiness.

If we talk about their humming sound, many cultures around the world believe their humming sound to be magical in nature and thus revere the Hummingbirds as healers.

Message From The Spirits And Angels

These symbols are not the end of the extraordinary qualities of these tiny birds. It has been said in many communities that these creatures carry messages from the spirits and angels. The spirits and angels choose these birds to give humans different signs and help from time to time.

Their hums carry these messages. Around the world, in many cultures, they say that the loved ones who have died use these hums to send us messages.

Now, I may conclude by lending a piece of advice which will surely be very useful for you, whenever you see a hummingbird hum, listen to them. They may have brought some messages JUST for you.

ECOWATCH: “Trump’s EPA Won’t Ban Brain-Damaging Pesticide”

“Siding with pesticide corporations over the health and well-being of kids is the new normal at the EPA. Today’s decision underscores the sad truth that as long as the Trump administration is in charge, this EPA will favor the interests of the chemical lobby over children’s safety.” 

Ken Cook – President, Environmental Working Group

 

President Donald Trump‘s U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will not ban the agricultural use of chlorpyrifos, a toxic pesticide that the EPA’s own scientists have linked to brain damage in children.

The decision, announced Thursday, was a response to a petition from public health and environmental groups who had pushed for a ban. The agency ruled that “critical questions remained regarding the significance of the data” on the pesticide’s health effects.

The ruling is the latest in a series of Trump EPA decisions that weaken chemical safety rules. In April, it opted against a full ban on asbestos in favor of restrictions that critics say could usher in new uses. Also this year, it issued restrictions on a paint-stripping chemical that were weaker than a ban proposed during the Obama years. Finally, just last week, it widely expanded the use of the pesticide sulfoxaflor, which its own scientists have shown can harm bees.

“Siding with pesticide corporations over the health and well-being of kids is the new normal at the EPA,” Environmental Working Group President Ken Cook said in a statement. “Today’s decision underscores the sad truth that as long as the Trump administration is in charge, this EPA will favor the interests of the chemical lobby over children’s safety.”

The EPA’s decision came after a federal court ordered the agency to make a final call on the ban by mid-July. Chlorpyrifos has been banned for home use since 2000, but farmers have continued to spray it on crops like apples, strawberries, broccoli and corn. The Obama administration had initiated a ban on agricultural uses of the pesticide, but Trump’s EPA reversed it, setting off a legal battle with environmental advocates. In the absence of federal action, states have moved against the pesticide on their own. Hawaii became the first state to ban chlorpyrifos in 2018, and California announced it would ban the chemical in May. New York is also moving towards a ban.

Research has linked chlorpyrifos exposure to lower IQ, memory loss, breathing problems and increased risk of autism in babies born to mothers who lived near farms where it was sprayed.

“What we have with chlorpyrifos is multiple academic research projects that have shown that actual children who actually live in California are being harmed by this chemical,” said Center for Environmental Health senior scientist Caroline Cox. “It’s pretty rare that you have that kind of evidence for any toxic chemical.”

So how was the EPA able to decide that the science wasn’t conclusive? The ruling was a direct consequence of former EPA administrator Scott Pruitt‘s decision to limit the kinds of studies that regulators could use to make decisions.

Under Mr. Pruitt, the agency proposed a rule saying it could not consider scientific researchunless the raw data behind it was made public, saying the issue was a matter of transparency. Scientists argued that studies measuring human exposure to pesticides and other chemicals often rely on confidential health information and argued the E.P.A.’s real motivation was to restrict the ability to develop regulations.

In opting not to ban chlorpyrifos, the E.P.A. rejected a major study conducted by Columbia University on its effects on children in New York City. The E.P.A. said because it was unable to obtain the raw data and replicate that study, which linked the insecticide to developmental delays, it could not independently verify the conclusions.

The 12 groups who brought the petition against the EPA vowed to keep fighting.

“We will continue to fight until chlorpyrifos is banned and children and farmworkers are safe from this dangerous chemical,” they said in a joint statement reported by Earthjustice, the legal organization that represented the groups.

Former senior EPA attorney Kevin Minoli thought that federal courts would ultimately rule in favor of a ban.

“To me, this starts the clock on the use of chlorpyrifos on food crops in the US.”

ASCENSION AVATAR: “Wings In The Sky…”

I laugh at this title… where else would wings be but in the sky?  Here in the sparsely populated Oregon town I live, Saturday and Sunday were what I’d call ‘magical’ days, as you can see by the clouds and sylphs in these photos… many were manifesting as ‘angels’ or ‘faces’ (‘human’ and ‘animal’) and some even look like symbols or writing (I’m saving the ‘faces’ pics for a later post). There was not a single visible chemtrail on either day, so what you see is, the ‘Will of God’?  In this mountainous ‘bowl’ during peak tourist and camping season with an RV park nearby, I’m lucky if there’s a cellular signal at all to blog with… which is why it’s taken so long to upload these photos… so enjoy, and watch for the next photo series, “Faces In The Sky…”

ASCENSION AVATAR: “Soft ‘n Sylphy Critters In The Sky…”

It’s nice to look out the window and instead of chemtrails, seeing ‘cute little critters’ like these sylphs… floating dreamily in the skies like butterflies… It’s a beautiful day… ☁️ ☀️

Note: Photos taken using iPhone 10. When the skies are clear here they are an amazing azure blue (‘reflections’ of the nearby lake). I tried posting this yesterday, but the signals were too weak by 11 AM (tourists!)… Enjoy 🙂
