The humming bird, like all birds, some more and some less, symbolizes freedom, but it also has another meaning: past and future are not as important as the present is, it's important to live now, sipping the nectar of life. The lotus flower.. is a symbol of Buddhism, perfection and letting go of things that weigh you down by only letting the blissfulness of the present fill your thoughts. "Carpe Diem".
A lotus to represent a new beginning, or a hard time in life that has been overcome and the symbol "Hum" from the Buddhist mantra to stand for love, kindness and protection...this symbol is also said to purify hatred and anger.
