  1. I dreamt I was at the house I grew up in when I was a kid, and sitting on the steps looking at my neighbors house, a hummingbird flew right at me and I moved my face so it wouldn’t hit me and it starting biting the back of my neck with its beak.. What does this dream mean?

    Last night I dreamed that I dropped my favorite expensive compact of face powder and it broke, and as I tried to pick up the pieces and save them, they turned into a baby hummingbird who was struggling to stay alive. I was very worried and I tried to put the bird in a pouch so I could nurture it back to life, but it escaped the pouch and flew up to a wall where it created a kind of web like a spider, and there were instructions on the wall that said we must not interfere with the dying baby hummingbird- that only another hummingbird could save it. I was upset and worried and didn’t want to leave its side. A little boy came and tried to look at the bird and I felt very protective of the bird and worried that the boy would harm it. Then I woke up and felt very sad and panicky.

  4. I had a dream last night that a mother Hummingbird and her two chicks were hovering over a picnic table. I was watching them. A little boy through a basketball at them and hit all three they dropped to the table and changed into seahorses. I told the boy that he can not treat nature this way and that he just destroyed the family. I picked each seahorse up and petted them. One by one they morphed back into hummingbirds and flew away.

  5. I had a dream last night that a hummingbird landed on my shoulder and spoke to me. It stayed there for quite a while, even while I was walking around. I thought it left at one point, but then I felt it on my head, getting tangled up in my hair. I wish I could remember what it said.

  6. I dreamt of two cats trying to catch a hummingbird that was flying above my head, I was terribly worried about the hummingbird but the cats did not catch it and I saw the hummingbird again flying above my head. It brought me happiness and tranquility.

I am willing to consider any thoughts or opinions. I believe that it is very important for me to discover the reason for this dream.
    Thank you

  9. I had a dream that a hummingbird was in a room with me &I think my husband. The hummingbird flew right to my face,looked at me &started gently kissing me with his beak. It was very sweet and made me happy!

  11. Last night I dreamed that I was standing on a patio at the bottom of stairs looking up the stairs my mother standing on the deck outside a house above me. While I was standing there talking to her something started buzzing in circles around me counterclockwise. I asked her in my dream what it was that was flying around me and she said hummingbird. The feeling that I had in the dream was not that it was evil but that the hummingbird was stressed upset and trying to tell me something and I couldn’t understand what it was trying to tell me. I even paused in my dream to try to understand what it was telling me and could not it was so frantic. But it was upset and once my mother told me what it was that was flying around me it’s stopped flew in front of me looked at me and then flew off over my mother and away. The odd thing about the dream is that my mother and I had very bad relationship she was severely abusive physically mentally growing up and even I would’ve adolescence and we will most likely never talk again in this life. So it’s just a very strange dream to have. But I felt like the hummingbird had a message I just wanted to know what it was because it seemed like something important was coming.

  12. I dreamed there was a storm, and three hummingbirds are banging at my screen door to come in. I opened the door and they came into my home I held out my hand and they came and landed in my hand and were sitting there looking at me….a cat came and sniffed them and left them alone…

    What’s the meaning….

  13. In my dream, I saw the hummingbird around colorful, pretty flowers. The hummingbird seemed to be in slow motion. In my dream it felt like a long time for the hummingbird to stay in my view.

    What does this mean???

    Thank you!
