In the company of a Crow

Do you believe in spirit animals and their sightings? Have you ever noticed that all of a sudden an animal crosses your path in the most unusual way, out of the ordinary, or over and over again until you finally become aware? For me these moments and animals are messengers, something that tries to get my attention, something I should know about.

A crow has been hanging out with me over the last couple of days. I think I know her and why she is appearing in my life. She travelled quite a ways to be with me, but on the other hand, there really are no distances in the spirit world. Silently she sits in the backyard and there is not a peep coming from her. Walking up and down the fence line, she pauses as we catch glimpses of each other, starring into each other’s eyes. She makes me sad in some ways, reminding me of loss, and yet I find reasons to smile, as she also brings forth comfort and reminders of the good ole times, and a dear soul sister. Crow’s silence tells me that everything has settled down, that there is bliss and enjoyment in the stillness. That the hectic and ruckus has seized and peace is restored once more. That it is ok for our journey to take on individual directions. Whether we travel together or separate, we remain connected and are never alone on this path we call life. I am grateful for her visit and the message she brings. I understand her language, and hear the unspoken words. My intuition is keenly aware and Crow is here to reassure me.

In other messages, she tells me that I am on the verge of manifesting something I’ve been working towards for a while. She reminds me to be watchful over the next couple of days, to notice any clear omens or signs that will guide and teach me. Further I am to expect a big change very soon. She tells me that I’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. She is telling me that I am about to get a glimpse into some future event that affect me directly.

Raven announces that Magic is in the air and something special is about to happen. I am urged to pay attention to my dreams and visions, especially colorful and powerful ones, as these are indicative of prophecy. In any undertaking or any relationship I’m told to be very clear as to what my intentions are, because whatever they are, that’s what will manifest. Raven is here to remind me that I am gradually shape shifting to a more confident, powerful, and spiritually based self that will continue to emerge the more I let go of my old self. Prepare to observe an increasing number of synchronistic events over the next few days, notice them and appreciate them, and don’t try to figure them out.


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. I think I told you about the crow that would announce its arrival at 6am at my doorstep each day…and as soon as I went to the door it would fly off. In the beginning I kept thinking I saw a flash of white on it, like it had just crawled under a just painted white fence or something. But one day it flew only a small distance and I could finally see that it had one total white big tail feather (very rare but apparently it happens)…oh, and it ‘laughed’ at me. Yes, you heard right. The ‘feeling’ from it was telling me to look at myself. It stayed around for quite a while but refused point blank to allow me to photograph it, even after sneaking around to try to catch it. So it kept laughing at me. One day I cheated and got a very long distance video of it but because I zoomed it so much it was too blurry…and of course while doing it, it laughed at me 😀
    I let go then and focused on what I was supposed to…Who? Me? 😂 🤣
    It finally disappeared and I find I miss him. But in truth he probably had just given his message and ‘let go’ that feather, replacing it with a normal one and I can no longer recognise him. Mind you, there has been ‘another’ one waking me of a morning and then flying off…I wonder 😂 🤣
