A Stunning Blue Jay Brings The Message Of Humility, Pride, And Ego

by Jennifer ZmurchykPrairie Sky Wellness

The stunning plumage of the Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata) one of the three species of Jays found in Canada.

I feel very fortunate to live in Canada. It is a country full of wide open spaces containing a wealth of wildlife.

I spend time each morning on my deck with a nice cup of hot coffee and I usually see some kind of special bird or animal. This mornings treat? A stunning Blue Jay that flew up onto my fence, looked at me, then hopped into my backyard and strutted around a bit. After pecking in the grass for a while, it flew away being sure to boastfully show me it’s amazing plumage.

“Shamans teach that Blue Jay represents our ego and pride. They have an arrogant Spirit and sometimes prey on other nests for their food. The balance to this is that Blue Jay is an opportunist. He reminds us to treasure what we have and watch for those open doorways. You do not have to be a “victim” of the world. Blue Jay teaches us how to use our abilities with wisdom, remaining present and attentive in our daily life”.

What Is My Spirit Animal

The odd thing about this little winged messenger was that when researching the spirit animal meaning of the Blue Jay, I realized it was the second time today that I had come across information regarding humility, pride, and ego. Spirit seemed to be telling me that I needed to think about where arrogance and pride are blocking me from moving forward in life.

Growing a pair’ is hard work!

I ordered the most awesome shirt shown above from a beautiful soul; Dana at Joy PSA. I came across a YouTube video of someone wearing this shirt and I KNEW I had to have one because over the last few years I’ve been working really hard on growing a pair. Please visit Dana’s website here at https://joypsa.com/ where you can purchase printable pieces of her amazing work, and the best part is that the proceeds go towards her mission to spread love and joy in the world.

This shirt got me thinking about what it means to grow a pair and how I have been working on this in my own life. Now, I do not profess to be an Angel. Though I have made many steps to become a better person, I am still far away from being Angelic.

I live on the prairies of western Canada, and have always had a keen interest in nature. Canada is an amazing place full of wide open natural areas which vary from the towering rocky mountains, northern boreal forests, arctic tundra, wide open prairies, and warm coastal areas.

Thoughts On Surrendering And Going With The Flow

by Jennifer ZmurchykPrairie Sky Wellness

Henderson Lake, Lethbridge Alberta Canada

For some reason I have been very deep in thought and introspection this week. Maybe it’s because there was a full moon last night, and traditionally full moons are a time of release. Thinking of what I need to let go of – people, old patterns of behavior, old thoughts, old dramas, bad memories, material things. Getting rid of what no longer serves my highest good. Walking away from everything and anything that is toxic in my life.
