Blue Jay - John James Audubon

plate No. 282 from The National Audubon Society Baby Elephant Folio - Birds of America

Our black sunflower seed feeders having been a popular haunt for lots of Jays this autumn.
Have you had an unusual meeting or abundant encounters with a specific animal ? they could be reminding you of something or bringing you a message for your journey - animal totems here (scroll down the page) - Blue Jay totem - proper use of power - makes a lot of sense to me

If Blue Jay is your totem, you may have tremendous abilities and potential, but you must learn not to be scattered and neglect to develop your abilities to their fullest. Blue Jay people can become dabblers – a little bit of knowledge about many things but master of none. Develop your gifts and you will have unlimited potential.

If you have a Blue Jay totem, you must learn to use your personal power properly. Be careful not to become a bully. The word “jay” comes from the Latin word “Gaea” which is Mother Earth. A Blue Jay totem links you directly with the power of the Earth itself. It can link the heavens and the Earth and give you access to universal energies and power.


  1. Love this post....mom is truly a "dabbler"!! woof, I am still in the mountains watching all the critters store up seed for the upcoming winter.

  2. Dang, blue jays are kinda aggressive eggs slurpers.

  3. beautiful painting. I pinned it. xo

  4. Thanks for that link to the totems. It looks great in a lot of ways - thinking about house clearing coming up...

    Anyway, I picked Dog because so much of what is happening in my current life is influenced by my dog. It's a huge huge thing that I never thought would happen to me. Here's what it says:
    Faithfulness and Protection

    The Dog is a symbol of the small becoming the great.
    People with this totem have great spirit
    and a great ability to love.
    It takes a lot to break a dog spirit.

    People with a Dog totem are usually helping others or serving humanity in some way.
    Dog medicine embodies the loving gentleness of best friend and the fierce energy of protector.
    You will have a deep understanding and compassion of human shortcomings.

    Study the quality of the breed of dog that has entered your life:
    is it a hunter, a protector, a companion, playful?
    Each of these qualities will give you insight into the qualities needed for your own life.

    A Dog totem is a great spirit booster.

    May it be so... thanks again.
