The blue jay and the stellar jay have a reputation of being a robber of campers food and of nesting materials. They wait until other birds have gathered the necessary essentials for the nest building and then rob them of it. Although jays do posses these tendencies it has other qualities that are far more important. Jays carry the power of presence. They are confident and fearless.

Both the blue jay and the stellar jay create a tremendous amount of noise when engaged in a robbery. This noise works to the jays advantage. The more noise they make the more chaotic the situation appears. This distortion of energy becomes the jays victory song.

The jay reflects lessons in how to use personal power correctly and efficiently. They remind you to pay attention and not allow yourself to be placed in a position in which power is misused against you. Those with jay as a totem need to heed this warning.

The bright blue crest on the top of a blue jays head links it to father sky, reminding those with this totem that true power must be utilized with integrity and balance.

Jays are incredibly resourceful. This can represent a need within you to learn adaptability for survival with the least amount of effort. Since the jay doesn't usually migrate and stays around all winter, it serves as a teacher who will settle in and work with you as long as you need it.

Jays are fearless and have been known to gang up and drive away hawks and owls. They know how to play the game of life and succeed. Jays reflect great talent, but that talent must be developed and used properly. If the jay has flown into your life it indicates that you are moving into a time where you can begin to develop the innate wisdom that lies within you. Jay is willing to teach you fearlessness, adaptability and survival but you must be willing to follow its lead and become "power through presence."
