One of the best things about our new master bedroom is the large picture window on a feature wall. Where we can look out into the greenery of our back yard and enjoy nature at it’s best.
These beautiful souls have captured our interest over the past few months since we have been living in our new bedroom. They especially caught our eye this morning and I was able to capture these images of their morning meeting from our covered deck.
The Spiritual Meaning of the Blue Jay
Blue Jay Symbolism
Based upon their behavior, blue jays are often linked to fierceness, determination, aggression, truthfulness, passion, curiosity, and loyalty. When threatened by a predator, blue jays do not hide or retreat, they go on the offensive, dive-bombing the creature in question until it retreats. As mentioned earlier, they will also imitate hawk calls to try to lure hawks away from their nests or make other predators think a hawk is near. A blue jay sighting may be calling you to reflect upon the way you strategize and respond in the face of danger.
Due to their complex webs of kinship, blue jays also represent strong social bonds. A blue jay sighting may be a call for you to reflect on your relationships. Do any of them need tending or repair? Have you taken the time to appreciate those close to you and all they do for you lately? Spotting a blue jay could simply provide you with a moment to reflect on the gratitude you have for the connections in your life, or it could represent something deeper requiring relational work.
The Blue Jay as a Messenger from Spirit
Blue jays are often associated with renewal and fertility, as they tend to drop the seeds they are hoarding for winter as often as they manage to store them. They are particularly fond of acorns, and many Celtic folk stories credit the blue jay with replanting the oak tree population in Europe thanks to the number of seeds they dropped. A blue jay sighting could mean that you are going through a period of renewal, or a very prosperous period, financially, creatively, etc.
Should a blue jay repeatedly appear outside your home, or make its home near yours, it could be a message from Spirit that you’re on the right path. Blue jays are fierce, curious, and tenacious, so one that continues to stay with you for some time is usually a sign that you are following your dreams and should continue on as you are.
What I find fascinating is that it was my husband who first noticed the blue jay’s. Being home alot more he had the perfect view of our back yard and the tv. So he has regularly admired and talked about his blue jay’s. We have looked up their spiritual meaning a few times now 🙏.
I can certainly align with the blue jay’s spiritual meaning in a few different ways in my life 💕💫🙏.
I love when life moments come into alignment with the journey in life!
