It is a rainy Monday morning and I sit at my dining room table sipping my morning coffee, staring out at the gloom through the doorway.  The brown field, no longer mowed, marching slowly but surely toward foresting itself, is framed by my still green lawn and the white pine marching atop the ridge.

Over the rim of my coffee cup, through the haze of steam, I see a dark form sweep by.  It is a crow circling the back yard.  It lands and marches sentry-like in line with the deck railing.

I get up and quietly open the door so that I can toss out the toast crusts, breakfast for my faithful morning visitor.

Crows have a usually black with tints of blue depending on the light shining on them. Their color is symbolic of the onset of creation, of the void or what has not taken form yet. Fascinating spirit animals, they carry the energy of life mysteries and the power for deep inner transformation.
As a spirit guide, the crow will guide you in getting in touch with life mysteries and develop your ability to perceive subtle shifts in energy within yourself and in your environment. It has the ability to go beyond the illusions, especially duality of right and wrong, inner and outer. 


  1. My wife has an affinity for crows. I wonder what your friend was trying to convey?

    Lovely gloomy morning. I find them soothing to the Soul. In light of the recent weather, if it is raining it is lovely, although I rather imagine that the hard hit snow areas could well do without the rain.

  2. You have your crow and I have my hawk. There is a huge beautiful one that sits perched in the top of an extremely tall tree across the street. He is now there most mornings and late afternoons and I feel compelled to go out and talk to him everyday. He watches me, too. If I go out to photograph him he watches me as a walk around trying to get the best shot. Not sure what he may be trying to tell me but I don't feel the least bit afraid of him. I went to the link you gave and looked at hawks - maybe he is trying to tell me something.

  3. I have never been a fan of crows. They frighten me. I found this piece interesting. Perhaps I should rethink my problem with crows.

  4. I also find crows fascinating. There's something about them that intrigues me. Watched a program on PBS once and apparently they can have a good degree of intelligence. I can see them making a great spirit guide.

  5. I've never thought much about crows but I sure enjoyed your description. Lovely!

  6. Impressed with your green lawn. We are all pretty much beige around here. Goodness, I will now look at a crow a bit differently.

  7. They must have some power because they always creep me out a little.

  8. I was very encouraged to find this site. I wanted to thank you for this special read. I definitely savored every little bit of it and I have bookmarked you to check out new stuff you post.
