The Great Blue Heron
Self confidence

The Great Blue Heron is a lone hunter. He is the largest of the Heron, and is magnificent in flight. He may often appear to have no structure or organization to his habit, but this is far from the truth. It is a matter of perception. Heron peple have a differen perspective on life. They know that the tasks in this world will be done. Heron teaches us to stand on our own so that we are not dependant upon others. He teaches us self confidence. It is interesting to note that those with the Medicine of the Great Blue Heron are often kept in check with Owl Medicine. They learn self confidence, but not ego. Those with the Medicine of the Great Blue Heron may sit until the rest of us lose patience, but following promptings from the heart the are one of the most magnificent when they choose to soar.
