So there it was, just sitting on the sidewalk, when I was taking out the garbage this small bright, iridescent blue jay feather.  I smiled as I marveled at its brilliance.


Now, jump back to Wednesday evening and the Psychic and Spiritual Development class I was teaching.  I asked the participants that evening if they had been experiencing any synchronicities from spirit as of late (we have several regulars who have been dropping in frequently).  I was curious to know if their spiritual worlds were opening for them during the weekdays between our class.  After various people shared their tidbits I encouraged the group to watch in the coming week for a synchronistic sign from spirit so they could share it at our next class session.


When class was over and we were wrapping things up in the waiting area of the office, my co-teacher Maura noticed a brilliant blue jay feather sitting on the porch entry way to the building.  She hadn’t remembered it being there at the start of class but we all remarked how beautiful it was.


Now, fast forward to today when I was taking out the trash… my synchronistic moment just happened- two beautiful feathers in three days, from the same kind of bird no less.

*Pay attention to nonverbal cues of the people around you.

*Choose a spiritual path and go as far down it as you can.

*If fear presents itself, attack it head on with courage.
