Call of the Crow 

The spirit animals have made a strong presence within me lately. Just about daily one shows up in some way or form, but perhaps they have always been there. Maybe it is now that I have become more receptive, that I’m finally listening, and maybe it is just now that I am taking note of the messages they are to bring. But why now? I look to learn about the meaning for their appearance while I try to understand the timing and search for the message the divine universe is trying to deliver. On second thought, I feel sure that they have always been there but I never noticed because the timing was off. Many would think it to be mere coincidence and that I’m reading into the signs too much. Maybe I have read too much, wanting to believe in the signs so much that it allows me to fabricate the stories that go along with those spirit animals. But then on the other hand, so have others before me and there is plenty of written documentation to support that I am not the first to have those thoughts and feelings. I’m not alone here. I have no explanation or scientific fact that backs any of this, it is mainly intuition that guides me through those experiences. If I know something for sure, it is that this is mostly something I feel and not all things always need to be rationalized. I am learning not to resist, to let it unfold and to go with my gut feeling while I trust what my heart feels. I believe that this is more than just serendipity, but with anything in life we believe what we want to believe in the end. I say believe in what you will, as long as it serves your purpose, as long as it fuels your soul with fire and as long as it allows you to live in the now. 

Yesterday morning the call of the crow was coming from outside my window. It was loud and distinct, almost obnoxious and there was no way to mistake it for another bird bidding me good morning. It was a crow and something either got it very upset, or it’s mission was to wake me from my slumber at any cost. It succeeded as it’s call woke me early, but why was it there? Was it here to tell me something? What was the message to be delivered? For as long as I remember, I have never had a crow outside my window, making so much noise, being so persistent with it’s call. While I was getting ready for work, the thought lingered and later I remembered the crow throughout the day. I believe that during the day I got my question answered and coincidence or purpose was no longer an issue. I knew….

A quick search about the crow as a spirit animal revealed the following. It is said that the crow was associated with life’s mystery and magic. I could use some magic for sure, I thought, but couldn’t we all? It was also associated with providing the insight and the means of supporting intentions. A messenger of luck or being a trickster. What a combination, a lucky trickster while raising awareness to deceiving appearances. And yes not everything shiny is a great treasure. At the time of discovering these associations with the crow, I couldn’t have known that I would actually come face to face with some of these traits later on in the day. To the point that some deceiving appearances would hit me smack dab in the face. And while I should have expected them, (in hindsight and while giving too much credit while no credit was deserved), I was still taken back by the tricky and deceiving way it all came to be. 

The crow was also said to be a supporter and developer of sight, to see what is real and what is not. It was supporting the power of transformation in connection to life’s magic. 

Further symbolic meaning of the crow 
Intelligence and higher perspective

Being fearless and audacious 

Flexibility 

Mischievous 

Adaptability 

Destiny and personal transformation 
After reading and inquiring about this unusual encounter, I definitely felt a connection to the meaning. First came the unusual never before visit and what followed later throughout the day solidified what I read earlier. The signs became obvious and even though it ended up being one of those days, I recognize it as a day vital in my destiny and personal transformation. No matter how painful life is from time to time, I firmly believe things happen for a reason. Those very reasons guide us to take the road we must travel and perhaps even decide which direction we need to take while standing at the fork, contemplating the path.

May you always travel the path of your intuition. Remember to listen to the signs and know it doesn’t always have to make sense. No explanations needed…
Thank you my crow messenger….I see and hear you.

Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

    1. That is wonderful and gives me further thought to ponder. Last night I received an email from a cousin I haven’t had contact with in nearly 30 years. Could it be? Very interesting and thank you very much for sharing.
      Have a beautiful day.

  1. I am glad that you are keeping the spirit animals a theme around you lately. That is really important part of us humans that we tend to forget. We have to co-exisit with these animals at all times. And that crow was a sign I believe for you to tell yourself to keep moving forward in everything you doing. See, the crow doesn’t stop at any cost in it’s life. Master again always said that everyone always looks at the crows as a negative bird, and why Master would say to me and his students. Master said the crow is one of the smartest birds on the planet, and that the crow is a healer in soul of our spirit. The crow will take the time to figuring out what it is trouble by and it lets it out and it speak them nosies to the sky. We look at how that sounds means something is wrong, when indeed the crow is healing itself from the things that were bringing it down in it’s past. I always laugh at Master for these crazy stories and then I see you writing a post about crows, and then it made me realize that Master told me this story for a reason years ago. And here is that time for telling you tiger this story. I hope that this can help you out in a way in your life. Take care tiger, feel my wings around you and keep dreaming for better days ahead…

    1. Thank you for sharing that story my friend. Again I feel like I might have met your master in a different life as I somehow do all those things already. Animals pick up my energy and usually don’t mind my presence, even if they are suppose to be wild animals. And me on the other hand like all animals and I don’t treat them as an animal as they have my highest respect.
      I am fine really, some days are just a little tougher and I’m taken by surprise, but I’m always ok 😉
      Thank you dear crane….

  2. I love it when power animals and spirit animals show up in my life. Not many lately for myself, but I need to keep my eyes opened more. (Besides insects arriving because it’s so warm outside here). So glad you’ve looked into the Crow! I need some of that fearlessness 🙂 It’s so great how you’re looking into these messages!!

      1. Haha it’s so funny that I’m reading this comment now RIGHT after I just posted my new blog of Mindfulness. (I know, I’m late replying to comments and such hehe). But yeah, we are truly on the same wavelength, here. And it’s something that I’m really starting to work on now and learn more about!!! Thank you so much for the suggestion! It takes work, sure thing. Glad we’re practicing mindfulness/awareness together 🙂
