Then above me I heard and saw a murder of crows. Cawing to each other, roosting from tree to tree. I stayed very quiet so as not to spook them. I said a prayer to the crows as I watched them. I asked for a gift of a single feather. As I left the pathway I saw a single crow feather that was not there when I passed by that spot before!
I felt so blessed that the crows had gifted me this sacred feather! I said my thanks and went on my way.

“Because Crow is the keeper of sacred law, he can bend the laws of the physical universe and “shape shift.” Crow is also an omen of change and can see simultaneously the three fates – past, present and future. By merging both light and dark, Crow can see both inner and outer realities. Crow medicine signifies a firsthand knowledge of a higher order of right and wrong than that indicated by the laws created in human culture. With Crow medicine, you speak in a powerful voice when addressing issues that for you seem out of harmony, out of balance, out of whack or unjust.
The prime path of true Crow people says to be mindful of your opinions and actions. Be willing to walk your talk, speak your truth, know your life’s mission, and balance past, present and future in the NOW. Shape shift that old reality and become your future self. Allow the bending of physical laws to aid in creating the shape shifted world of peace.” – Medicine Cards by Jamie Sams & David Carson.
Survivor~Crows can survive in cold or heat, can eat anything, are hardy animals, they teach us to use anything at our disposal to reach our goals.
Some view crows as a pest, I view crows as a gift, a teacher of sacred knowledge that we can tap into. Animals are the greatest teachers if we learn to listen and revere their presence. There is a reason for all plants and animals to be on this earth. Humans should look to them to for inspiration and answers. They have much knowledge to impart to us if we will but listen.
