Crow Power Animal Symbol Of Sacred Law Change

By Ina Woolcott

Many cultures consider crows to be the keepers of the Sacred Law, for nothing escapes their keen sight. To have a Crow as a power animal is extremely powerful stuff. When we meditate on the crow and align with it, we are instilled with the wisdom to know ourselves beyond the limitations of one-dimensional thinking and laws. We are taught to appreciate the many dimensions of both reality and ourselves, and to learn to trust our intuition and personal integrity.

Crows often appear in groups, and though there seems to be no variation in their caw-ing to each other, each caw actually has a different meaning. Their complex vocabulary is one sign of their intelligence, and is also a sign of their significance as power animals. When a crow explores something new, others watch closely to see what happens and then learn from it. They often make great noise when hunters are around, warning deer and other birds. Crows recognise potential danger and hence always post lookouts when feeding. This is their most vulnerable time. This helps us understand that we must watch what we believe, to test our habitual ideas about reality against a more universal standard.

Without paying careful attention, we are unable to understand the language of crows, this signifies the fact that we can’t always see beyond our own cultural limitations. These limitations include certain moral codes of right and wrong, along with ‘rules’ that accompany these codes.

Throughout history there have been many (unnecessary) conflicts and wars between humans due to differing moral and religious beliefs. To truly create a new age of love, peace and harmony it is of high importance for us to be able to transcend our particular cultural limitations and to hold in our hearts and souls what we share as spiritual beings in human form. We are all connected, infinitely and composed of the same ‘stuff’. We need to realise that hurting others only hurts ourselves. Crow is the bird which represents this transcendence.

Crow can also teach us to be mindful about judging people automatically. Be mindful of your opinions and actions. You need to walk your talk, to speak your truth and to know your life’s mission. Again, trust your intuition and personal integrity, to create your own standards, whether or not they matc those of the world around you. Be an individual, think for yourself, don’t necessarily follow the crowd!

In the courting process the male crow’s voice takes on a singing quality. This lets us see what the basis of sacred law is, unconditional love, the one unfailing principle by which we can test our own principles.

Crow is an omen of change. Crows live in the void and have no sense of time, therefore being able to see past, present and future simultaneously. They unite both the light and the dark, both the inner and the outer. Crow is the totem of the Great Spirit and must be held with utmost respected. They are representations of creation and spiritual strength.

Crows are messengers, telling us about the creation and magic all around us, that is available to us just for the asking. Look for opportunities to bring into being the magic of life. The striking black colour of the crow represents the colour of creation. It is the womb out of which the new comes into existence. Black is the colour of the night, giving birth to the light of a new day.

Crows are sly and can be deceptive in their actions. They have been known to build false nests high in treetops to confuse predators. Their nests are built very high up, giving them the chance to watch everything that is going on around them.

As crows are adaptable to all environments and will eat almost anything, they can survive in almost any situation. Crow is surrounded by magic, unseen forces and spiritual strength. If crow enters your life, get out of your familiar nest, look beyond your present range of vision, listen to the message(s) in its caw and act accordingly.

  1. I was one day walking out of a grocery store when suddenly a crow flew by me and landed on a grocery cart containing section. I have noticed crows all my life but for some reason this one I was completely fixeatted on this one. As it perched it looked in my direction, cawed a few times then flew off. I knew it had to mean something so I go home and start researching EVERYTHING about crows, but still wasn’t convinced. Giving up I decided to go take a shower, as I was showering suddenly a face of the crow showed so strongly in my mind as a vision that I thought it was physically there. Suddenly I felt empowered and enlightened. Then I saw a bright light and I was then in a vision… Darkness all around except for one bright light… And a voice coming from the light saying that I had received a gift granted to few, a spirit animal uniting with me, the crow. The voice then told me the crow was to take me on a spiritual journey to strengthen myself in the higher spiritual plains ( all this I was completely unaware of ) and that though I rely on my intellect, that I still have much to learn from my heart and spirit… It said to always keep seeking knowledge but don’t shun my emotions( of which I usually do )and that I start improving myself spiritually. The voice disappeared and of course feeling enlightened I still wanted to do research, finally I found this site explaining about Shamanism and spiritual animals of which mine even on description turned out to be… The crow. Now I will seek out more answers while relying on this spirit guide to help me get to higher spiritual levels.

    1. I had a crow fly down to a glass door look straight at me and peck on it and then fly away. Since then I’ve had hundreds of them flying around my house. I believe there’s potentially a connection with my ability to lucid dream possibly during a lucid dream having direct conversation with Gaia. So I guess the first comment was right on!

    2. I have been seeing crows and hawks lately a LOT. The hawks are usually in the air but the crows are on the path I walk, on the neighbor’s house, in my backyard. I am at a time in my life where I feel the need to change but don’t know how to do it. The financial security of a job is comforting. the unknown is scary.

  2. After maditating with the crow, grounding my self and becoming part of the one, I was a part of every blade of grass, every tree and everything that is. I could feel the healing energy enter it all, and had the thought, it’s ok Grandpa. At this moment in no-time my Grandfather, smoking his pipe, emerged from the ground the plants and the animals. I could feel the Earth heal and I felt a calm fall upon everything that is.
    The message I received was; the Earth Spirit and our Spirits need to interact to live and grow and heal, we should become as a child and expolre what is……….

  3. At one time a few years ago when I was quite shaken up mentally/spiritually and had experimented with psilocybin mushrooms for quite a while- some crows started cawing at me from two trees, following me a few meters, flying a bit lower above my head and then landing on the next tree- just to fly down on me again and landing on the next nearby tree. Like a group of 4 or 5 crows I think. I hadn’t ingested any mushrooms that day, but was, as I said, in a quite shaken up inner state. Frightened by the changes in my general perception (or conception) of reality that had started happening. I felt like in a psycho thriller or horror movie when the crows behaved in that odd way towards me, somehow it pleased me- as if proving that I am entering into a more shamanic frame of mind- but at the same time unsettled me deeply. A few meters ahead, JUST a few seconds afterwards, a young woman leaned out of a window of a particularly run down looking house (apart from which the neighborhood actuslly consisted of very nice houses). It was a side lane and just some metres near a Jewish synagogue. Anyway she grinned at me secretively and started speaking to me in a luring cheeky tone of voice, laughing but somehow mocking me with a cynical undertone. She said something like: Hey fella, where you headed- wanna join me in here? I want to show you something (btw…I am fairly sure that she wasn’t a prostitute :D ). I think she wore something black, I am nit sure vut she had that gothic style look or vibe. I was a quite startled and babbled something meaningless. I dudnt trust the whole thing at all- especially with the criw shirtly before and all- no ten horses would drag me in that strange ugly house. She tried it again and I went something like: No can do a girlfriend!..Then she sniffed at me, and said, still in a cynical mocking voice: What are you- a small child?! I have boyfriend too- what’s that got to do with anything, stupid??’ abd closed the window while I waved in a fashion which u hoped seemed witty and self confident. It was really unsettling, especially the striking syncronicity of it all (to very odd and shady occurrences coinciding like that). I still don’t know what to make of it all really, now after about 4 years. I have walked through that side lane and by the house on purpose a few times since then, but apart from feeling just some slight anxiety from the above memory I didn’t really expect it to repeat. I can’t lose the feeling that I was in a particularly vulnerable state if mind (mentally/ energetically) and drew or attracted those very strange incidents to myself accordingly. Because all of it wouldn’t have shook me up like that if I had been in my ‘normal state’ of mind. But then such things usually don’t happen to you and I guess that’s not by accident. Maybe on the other hand I was particularly open that day to learn an intersting spiritual lesson, which is what that mysterious girl perhaps was trying to offer me; like a test. And I failed by being all timid and ‘leave me alone, I’m just a regular nice guy’. But in the end, I’m glad I reacted as I did, following my spontaneous intuition.

    What do you guys think of all thus (apart from it being somewhat of a lengthy story :D )

    1. One afternoon, during prayers I called upon all my ancestors to bless me .then I had a short nap after lunch. Then after few minutes I was woken by the voice of cawing crows. There were a huge crowd of say 15-20 crows right out of my window and cawing at me. I felt like saying thanks for there presence and when I thanked them they flew away. But ever since I see crows at my window daily . They caw and wait till I see them and then they move. moreover I see 2 crows always by the window and looking for though they are guarding me and trying to give a message . I don’t know how to communicate with them.but I feel like some power animals or my ancestors spirits are trying to guide me with some message. I would like to know the ways of communicating with spirit guides or power animals.

  4. Btw the crows were cawing at me all the time while one of them would fly a bit lower above my head. They were about five as I said. They really kind of circled and followed me in a very persistent way.

  5. I’ve experienced this exactly as well… it happens to me quite a lot actually. you are not crazy. the crows are speaking to you. i get scared too. If you need to talk about it call me : 9496365659

    1. Hey, I have been visited by crows too. I’m finding it very frustrating to try to understand their message and i,d love to connect! Any info you have on this would be so welcome

  6. I encountered my Crow way back in 2006/7 when I was hit by their droppings that sent me bedridden 5 days and nights with a terrible flu. By then Bird-flu was in the news so I could easily conclude my condition as same. Very life-sucking flu: complete weakness, painful cough, loss of appetite… you name it.

    But the Crow declared their dedication when in my latter years at the university, the pair would not leave the vantage point where I could see them through my window – rain or shine, day and night!

    The love-affair has been ongoing since then but I am still yet to come to terms with their exact message being delivered. Not even those inordinate amounts of time spent reading everything crow have brought me a complete grasp of their messages. Yes there have been tremendous jumps high and low in my life, I still feel there’s something more to the caws that they keep calling out to/flying along with me than I can presently comprehend.

    I need more clarity with their message.

  7. my dream last night was of me and my family raising a crow. I could feel love and familiarness for this animal in the dream it felt a happy and colourful dream.I could see the crow aging throughout the dream seeing a fully grown crow held by my mother at some point in the dream..anyone have any insight on this please.

  8. I am working at a Hardware Store, I can not say where. But I am recently got into Shamanism.While I was in the Lott getting Baskets. You know where you put the baskets after you are done right? A Crow landed two or four feet from me at the end of the Railer. Just glanced at me, they usually fly away when you are moving and making heavy vibration noise with the basket. Then the next day, I had one flew downwards by me then upwards on the Store.

    1. My story begins in the Summer of 2009. My father had passed away in March of that year & I was spending more time with my sister at her place. It was a frightening, yet confusing dream. I dreamed that a black crow was between my sister & I. Being the very superstitious person that I am, it was told to me to never reveal bad dreams because they would come true. I panicked and not said a word to her. I did look up the meaning of the dream(illness). It wasn’t until March-April in 2014 that my sister’s abdomen started blowing up like if she was pregnant. She went to see a doctor turned out she had a tumor. Up to this date, I see crows everywhere, I go. Just a couple of months ago, I had a crow in my dream following me, while I was driving. Weird thing is I’ve gone twice to renew my drivers license ..both times I’ve have had trouble doing so. Certain circumstances haven’t allowed it. I don’t understand. Soon I probably will.

  9. I have always lived in the country. We moved into a new house 7 months ago, a house on the lake. I have noticed a number of crows outside, hanging out at a tree outside the house and flying by the lake, etc. They seem to have a nest nearby as they are always here, not just at times. I didn’t realize crows have nests and hang out so closely to people. My husband seems to think our house may have been an old grave site because of it? Any thoughts?? (P.S> I don’t believe they are bad luck or bad omens, am just curious about thoughts to a flock/murder of crows living right near a house).

  10. my brother is dead in a car accident 2 years ago,from that time a black crow is all ways in touch in my life ,when ever i keep food no other crows will come and eat only the black one will come and eat ,after that only other crows will come and eat.recently for past 1 month that crow will wake up me in the morning by shouting and i feed it with food which i have, it will come near me and eat from my hand i see no fear in it,if am not there my wife notice the crow search me in the balcony but never eat any thing what my family members it any thing that my dead brother trying to tell me some thing in life ,plz if some one knows about this plz mes me

  11. I’ve always seen crows
    But today I saw one single brown crow. I was I’m shock. That amazed me, And now I’m wondering what it means?

  12. Lately I have had this strange thing happening. Every time I see a Crow I hear it’s name, if there is a group/murder of them I hear so many names it is hard to pick one out. Sometimes while driving on routes I take many times I will see the same crow, I know this only because I hear their name. Some will sit on a fence and just stare at me.

    I have three that visit the feeder or sit behind the gazebo, they are quite vocal.
    This started happening about February of this year……I do feel honored that they tell me their name….even more so if they are my totem. I also feel they are trying to guide me to the earth people..
    All my life I have noticed the nearness of crows but just never thought of them as my totem…

  13. Stephen .. do you think that the crows were warning you about what was to follow ie the invitation into the house?

  14. Crows have made presence into my life some time back…I do understand that there is a deeper meaning, but am still to figure it out!
    What intrigued me was, it was out cawing in the night, hasn’t happened before ….
    Do es anyone have any clue as to what is the meaning….
    any info will be great!
    Thanks and take care all!

  15. I had a drem last night that I was facing a muddy sort of walled forest. When I looked closer dried mud was hanging down rather like an upside down termite mound. Then hanging down from the mud were clear strings which grew bigger until eventually out popped a head a body which suddenly righted itself and stood on its two feet. I was so shocked I didn’t know what it’s was but then I realised I was standing in the middle of a gigantic crows nest. I knew I had to make a quick get away as the mother would be coming back soon to protect her young. Didn’t know what to make of the dream. Any advice welcome … Thanks

  16. Sitting on the beach, watching the clouds. Nobody around, few surfers in the water. As I am listening to thunder, contemplating the clouds and rain and life, a crow flies over me cawing, then lands a few feet from me, walking toward me cawing. He kept walking a half circle around me back and forth, all the time looking at me, cawing, and shuffling samd with its beak off and on. Then we moseyed off quietly. Curious!

  17. In Sept/Oct 2013, I dropped 2 passenger s at a Minot, ND hotel. Whrn I got out of the cab, a crow cawd. The cab key buzzer went off. I couldnt see why. I walked inside to the ground floor bathroom. Then I opened the door I froze for 4 sexonds as I saw a 25 yr old white man wearing white long sleved shirt, vest docker walk out of rhw stall towords the sicks/mirror. He took his second step turning intoca white ghost tje shrunk smaller moving into the corner. I had a tape recorder on me. The three soinds click click click echoed whenbhe apeared then.faded as he turned into a vaper and disappeared. I have decendent in Chaote.
