While visiting New Mexico this summer, I raised my phone to take a photo of some pink flowers against a blue sky when this happened:
This hummingbird flew right into my frame and posed for a long time (at least by hummingbird standards). It was a magical moment, especially because hummingbirds have always been an “auspicious symbol” for me.
Sometimes when we’re working on our big vision: noticing what sparkles, letting go of old visions to be open to the new, and running towards what excites us, something unexpected shows up right in front of our face. It might even be more wonderful than the vision we imagined. Why not focus on it, before it flies away?
