Call of the Crow

A giant crow has shown up in life, sitting on the power lines outside my window. This has repeated for a few days now, with it just sitting there, silent, just starring over into my direction.

It didn’t strike me as usual business for a crow to just hang out, and the repeat visits are coming across as signs that there is a message to be delivered. Maybe the message is long overdue and was already in the works as I painted the above crow into one of my paintings (partly picture above) for no apparent reason at that time. All of a sudden the painting stood out in a way as if reinforcing me to listen. It was yesterday that I finally heard the call when I came across a crow tarot deck, and separate guidebook that sparked my interest. Three times now, the crow made an unusual appearance and I’m finally ready to hear the message.

Crow wisdom:

You’re on the verge of manifesting something you’ve been working toward for a while. Be very watchful over the next couple of days for any clear omens or signs that will guide you and teach you. Expect a big change very soon. You’ve noticed something that’s out of balance or an injustice that hasn’t been addressed, and it’s important to speak up about it. You’re about to get a glimpse into some future event that affects you directly.

I think it is time…


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. Here you go my friend, it’s an excerpt from one of my earlier posts and I hope it helps and may make sense for you.

      Dove spirit animal message:
Express your love to as many people as possible in words and in deeds, even in small yet significant ways. The soul of someone who has recently passed is making a smooth, peaceful and joyous transition. This is a powerful time of prophecy and clear vision, and now more than ever you’re able to glimpse the future. You’re experiencing a spiritual renewal that’s the result of a period of intense self examination and challenges. This is a good time to stay at home and enjoy your domestic side. It’s important to nurture yourself with loving care.

    1. Hello dear friend. So much has happened and I am back in the states fighting to get my own health back. Mom is in a care home for now and hates it, but there is no other way right now. It is very difficult and she doesn’t understand. It’s hard and very sad at the same time.

      1. Thank you dear friend, it’s an ongoing process for me with the chronic RA and I hope I can put it in remission somehow. I was hoping to be on my way once the wetter got better but still not where I need to be. Hope all is well with you. 😉

  1. Ooh, I’m very intrigued. I can see meaning here but am keen to see what happens next. It sounds like it’s going to be something good, even if it’s not plain sailing. Standing by, should you need it, as ever.

      1. No, I think we talked about it already, about my crow turning up to reinforce healing and also I sent you some info about the Heyoka energy that this reminded me of, a special form of shamanic practice. I am glad I am back to this post, I wanted to say how much I love your painting, such a well drawn crow, it has such a lot of crow-iness about it, if you know what I mean, you’ve totally captured it. The pose but especially the eye. I love it and you know I am the biggest of crow fans. x

      2. Thank you very much. It’s only a small section of the painting which is multimedia and I can’t take credit for the crow as it was transferred with Mod podge. A nice thought anyways to imagine I could paint like this.


  2. It seems that a big change is on the way, Rhapsody, mysterious and exciting, wishing you all the best with it. The artwork is special, I like the portentous tones; what does the crow see in the future?

    1. Thank you so much Steve, it means everything. I think big changes are in store for many of us. May we hold on tightly, let go of all that that doesn’t serve us and land in a place somewhat safe and sound. Best wishes my friend.
