Blue Heron & Egret

Meaning, Medicine & Magic

Blue Heron & Egret spirit animals symbolize being calm, presence, being at peace, unique, and balanced.

Blue Heron asks you to look inside and nurture all aspects of yourself.

Embrace your “flaws”, uniqueness, and feelings of shame with self-love.

Once you love your whole self and find your inner peace, you’ll be able to bring peace to others.

Spreading healing throughout the world. Breath deep, stand in each moment, feel the full spectrum of emotions, and lead with your heart.

Lessons In Wild Play


Nature is a master teacher. Research your animal’s habits in the wild and try playing & acting as it. How could this help shift your experiences?



  • Blue Herons walk slowly or stand still for long periods of time when waiting to catch fish. Trusting that what they need will come to them at the right time. What areas in your life could you bring more patience to? Sharpen your awareness so you’re ready whenever ‘it’ arrives.
  • Their uniquely S-shaped necks allow them to stand back at a distance and strike quickly at prey. Use this to your advantage. You don’t need to be right in the middle of everything. You can have quick access to things/desires seemingly out of nowhere. Lean on your keen observation and intuition to know when the best time to strike is.
