Jay Power Animal Symbol Of Being In The Present

By Ina Woolcott

Jay’s gifts include understanding how to use power wisely, warning, courage, ability to check on future trouble spots, power of presence (being in the eternal now), fearlessness, resourcefulness, adaptability.

Both the blue jay and the stellar jay are esteemed for stealing food off campers and also nesting materials form other birds – after these have laboriously gathered the necessary materials. This aside, jays have far more important qualities – they are bold and fearless and hold the power of presence.

When in the act of stealing, both the blue and stellar jay make a huge racket – in fact this always works in their favour because the louder they are, the more helter-skelter the situation seems. This energy distortion becomes the jays victory song.

Jay’s show us how to use personal power correctly and effectively, reminding us to pay attention and to not allow ourselves to be put in a situation where power is misused against us. If this is your power animal, bear this in mind.

The bright blue crest atop the blue jays head, connects it to the sky, reminding you true power must be applied in a balanced and honourable fashion. Jays are tremendously resourceful, which may symbolise a need inside of you to learn adaptability for survival with the as less effort possible.

The fearless jay’s are able to gang up and drive away hawks and owls – they know how to play the game of life and come out on top.

Jays symbolise huge talent, however, this talent must be developed and used correctly. If jay has flown into your life, this may be a signal that you are coming into a time where you can begin to help the inherent wisdom that lies within you (within us all!) to mature.

  1. Recently I prayed on my knees to God asking him what is my next step or phase in my life and why I here, in this house living with a man who leaves me waiting for him for lengthy time periods. The other day, I was in my yard playing with my Grandson, when I spotted a blue jay feather. I live in RI where blue Jays are seen frequently. I took the feather inside. Since then, I’ve been reading about finding the feather, trying to see how this feathers symbolism refers to me. I’ve had very special men in my life. They have passed on. One is an uncle named Jay. Also, I am an empath. I am scattered with talents. From nursing to tarot card reading. My animal card is a monkey. Yet I have very dishonest friends, one in particular. The blue jay feather has a few meanings, it seems. I’m wondering how I should apply these meanings to my life.

    1. I think you may already know what to do. Ask your higher self, be still & listen & honor yourself. As long as You are on the right path and seeking I think all will be revealed

    2. Trust that still small voice inside that speaks calmly and clearly…that you know in your heart is right. I sometimes will distort that truth with fear based logic in order to avoid the uncomfortability of marching to the beat of my own drum. But when I do, the peace, joy and feeling of freedom is exhilarating. Only I can limit me. A good friend often reminds me that I create my own problems, particularly in relationships, by . “shrinking to fit.” That way I don’t have to have the courage to Be. This may or not be the case for you, but we’re both seeing jays for a reason. Trust your gut. Have a wonder-filled day…everyday! ?

  2. Thankyou for the first time as i now live in a shelter i picked up a beautiful bluejay feather. It was directly in my path as if it was just placed there and left for me

  3. Today I seen a Blue Jay bird. I had been praying for my husband and I for months. This morning my husband woke up asking me “what and who I was looking at?” First thing early morning on mother’s day. So he goes straight outside to smoke I follow and what catches my eyes a beautiful BLUE JAY BIRD. It commicated with me directly and gave me a piece of mind. Seconds later we walked into our home my husband asked could we pray he asked for forgiveness and I did as well. The Blue Jay brought a peace and clarity into our home and helped me answer a prayer. Just had to share we all believe in what we want . We also ask for help when we need it no matter who or where. Keep your beliefs true to who you are and all you seek shall be right in front of you. Favor is forever, faith is trust, live is for living, & Faith is FOREVER!

  4. Today I find out my oldest dogs kidneys are slowly failing and of all days I find a baby blue Jay in my garden with a broken leg. Im not sure what it means….if anything at all
