Two weeks ago, a heavy winter storm blanketed us with 8 inches of snow overnight. The following day was clear but cold and Galen was excited to see several bluejays among the many birds that were out on our deck and surroundings, trying to find food in the snow. Three days later, the snow had melted and I was walking along our leaf-covered driveway to put something in our mailbox to be picked up later that day. On my way back to the house, I found a single bluejay feather, lying on top of the leaves.
My former husband had a keen interest in birds as messengers, and I felt it was no accident that I had found that feather, so I looked up the symbolism for it, and found the following:
“If Jay has flown into your life:
Jay teaches lessons of adaptation to any situations and learning quickly with a high intelligence. He gives access to memories long forgotten and shows how to assimilate them into awareness. He demonstrates risk taking, seizing opportunities and discovering new avenues for exploration. He will show the power of intelligence and fortitude balanced with discreet silence and utmost patience in timing. Bold and inquisitive, this bird has a penchant for investigating, adapting and learning new ideas and concepts. His creative intelligence uncovers sacred interconnections with all things. Mental growth aids spiritual growth. The energy centers of the head may become activated due to the increase of new spiritual knowledge.
Life after Death
This struck me particularly apt and synchronistic, particularly because I am being called to explore these new avenues in connection with computer graphics. However, just yesterday, I discovered that “bluejay medicine” was really helpful in dealing with chaotic energies and situations.
Saturday is our normal day to do shopping and errands. In addition to our normal stops, we had some extra errands to run in connection with turning in the paperwork needed to refinance our car loan at a more attractive rate. It was totally time-sensitive, and if we didn’t get the papers to UPS before the air shipment cutoff time, all of the paperwork would have to be redone and the loan reworked because interest would still be accruing on the existing loan.
We decided to get our signatures notarized and the paperwork sent off before we did our other errands. Once we were done with the notary, we headed to the nearest UPS drop-off point (Staples), only to discover that they didn’t have the required envelopes to put the documents into.
After SEVERAL “false starts,” including trying to buy appropriate envelopes (they didn’t have any), and driving around for almost an hour, trying to find the UPS drop-off location that WOULD have envelopes (our GPS didn’t list them, and we kept having to ask people in different stores where it was, only to have it turn out to be a distribution center, not a drop-off center), the clock was ticking, so we ended up going to the UPS store we knew, 20 minutes away.
When we got to the UPS store, the woman at the counter said the driver had come early, so she had to track him down and get him to come back to pick up our shipment. Throughout the rest of the day, we had to exercise adaptability and resourcefulness over and over again. There was only one item on the shelf when I had to buy two to get the BOGO price, so I had to ask for help in locating another one. Eggplant was unexpectedly on sale and fresh. That meant we had to buy more parsley and get some ground lamb to add to the meat we were planning on getting. Our usual laundry detergent was no longer available at our usual store, so we had to get some at the other store, where it happened to be on sale. When we got to the hair salon, we found out our hairdresser had called in sick. Scratch the haircuts.
The entire day went like that. Some things just didn’t work. For other things, we had to use our intelligence and adapt. Unexpected opportunities showed up and we took advantage of them. We finally got to our last stop just before closing time, and then had to head home to make dinner. We were both exhausted, and will have to get the haircuts at another time. I kept saying “Time for bluejay medicine!” at every unexpected turn of events, and it really helped us navigate the twists and turns of the day.
In addition to the advice the Hosts gave us for dealing with chaotic situations (in their October 3 Message), given how chaotic the energies felt yesterday and my feeling that there will be increasingly unsettled times just ahead, I think we ALL could benefit from adding “bluejay medicine” to our tool kit for these transition times. While here in the US, we have a new President, there are powerful forces arrayed against him, as this analysis from Zerohedge shows. When I had asked within as to which of the two candidates (Clinton or Trump) would result in the greatest amount of chaos, the answer had come back quickly and without hesitation: “Trump.” I think bluejay medicine will be helpful as we navigate our course through these times and toward the evacuation. It may be a rocky road at times.
That being said, I continue to see the road rising gradually and steadily in front of me, and it feels like nothing but good lies ahead. That is the road I wrote about that has no end, so I do not think in terms of events any more, just process, process, process.
It is my intention to write again soon, as soon as I can put together the images and content for discussing “Spherical Sensing,” but for now, I hope sharing bluejay medicine with you will give you another tool to use for yourself.
Love to all,
