I wake most mornings between midnight and 3 a.m. Sometimes I hear leaves rustling outside; sometimes I just have to go to the bathroom; and sometimes I wake suddenly.

This morning was a sudden awakening. 

1:57 a.m.

Before I left on my early morning desert walk, I briefly read about Angel Numbers 157. They usually come in unexpected ways, it stated, including a sudden awakening in the middle of the night. 

I smiled.

This is at least the second time since my arrival in Tucson that I’ve woke at 1:57a.

I’ve paid more attention to numbers since the beginning of this year when I flew back to Costa Rica.

I flew on January 1st on flight #1181 and arrived at 01:11.

1.1  at 01:11 on 1181. And, 1+1+8+1=11.

That’s a lot of 1’s!

I had a few hours till the 4:30a bus from the airport to San Jose and felt it more than coincidence, so I looked up the meaning of these numbers.

Albert Einstein said, “A coincidence is a small miracle when God chooses to remain anonymous.” It’s also been said coincidences mean you’re on the right path.

The angel number 111 relates to manifestation and indicates one’s pure, positive energy will draw abundance and harmony into your life.

Great way to start the New Year!

So. This morning.


The number 1 is related to ambition, assertiveness, and achieving one’s professional goals. 

 The number 5 is associated with positive life changes. 

The number 7 carries a vibration that involves enhancing one’s psychic ability and intuition. 7 is highly spiritual in nature. 

This journey to the Tucson desert has been filled with tears and tears of joy. 

A couple shamans I know reminded me: You listened and heeded the call.

I knew it wouldn’t be easy and it hasn’t been.

 But, I’m an Aries. The mundane and expected bore me. 

As the unfolding of my souls’ evolution continues, I always try to remain open to how the Universe is guiding me.

I arrived at the bench on my walk that indicates my halfway point; about an hour roundtrip.

I looked at Mt. Lemmon, took my backpack off, and sat down.

On the seat were my Angel numbers in the form of a penny and a nickel.

Filled with joy, I walked home faster and shaved eight minutes off my time.

I always make a cacao sipping when I return and give prayer filled intentions into my mug. 

The little silver spoon scraped the last bits of medicine the sides of the mug.

As I stood next to a saguaro cactus in my front yard and smiled at Mt. Lemmon, a hummingbird flew to me.

She was so close I heard the flutter of her wings. They beat up to 80 times a second!

Startled, I flinched. She remained.

I stood still and slowly turned towards her. 

She flew within a foot of my face and hovered so close, we looked in each other’s eyes.

Every time I thought she’d fly away, she just encircled my head. Above, behind, and in front again.

She flew backwards and forwards; up and down.

It’s said their ability to fly in so many directions, is a reminder to us to accept life’s inevitable changes with a happy heart and enjoy the present. 

Several months ago, I offered a Maya spiritual bath to a dying friend.

We had a great conversation about life, death, and forgiveness. She sat on her sofa in front of a large window that looked into her front yard.

“Am I going to heal?” she asked.

I put my hands on her knees and leaned in towards her.

“Not here,” I replied.

She paused.

“I know my anger and resentment caused my cancer. I’m ready to let go; to forgive. I want to go home,” she continued.

As she spoke those words, a humming bird flew outside the window behind her, above her left shoulder.

I smiled and told her.

She smiled back, her blue eyes sparkled. She loved all creatures and felt they communicated with her.

I’ve read that hummingbirds are messengers from Heaven; lovingly encouraging us to release past burdens that no longer serve us and move on. 

My friend transitioned two days later.


I believe my angels are reminding me to align my energy with Divine Source, because when I do, everything I desire into my experience I will attract. 

Because some hummingbirds are known to fly up to 2,000 miles to reach their destination, they are a symbol of endurance and tenacity in one’s pursuit of their dreams.

A creation of Source Energy, hummingbirds remind us that we are the creators of our happiness; to accept the hardness that often comes with discovering the sweet nectar deep inside; and that, as they move their wings in a figure 8, the pattern of infinity, we too, are a continuous flow of eternal energy. 

Keep looking and listening. Keep loving and flying.
