You have magical abilities that are waiting to be discovered and developed with in you. Explore the unknown.

If Crow has flown across your path;

It is a sign of change. All that you have been working for and toward is now coming to fruition. Alternatively Crow is giving you clear messages and guidance as to what your next steps are. Pay attention to your thoughts, and to the omens around you. The messages are clearer now than they have ever been.

Crow as a messenger could also be letting you know that perhaps you are spreading yourself a little bit thing. It’s time to step back – re assess where you are at and take stock of your own dreams and aspirations. Being clear about our own desires is key in manifesting our intentions.

If Crow is your Animal Totem;

You have a great deal of personal integrity. You work hard at being mindful of your opinions and actions and are willing to walk your talk, speak your truth and embrace your life’s mission. You shift through changes and phases of your life with effortless ease and are willing to swoop in on opportunities at a moments notice. You have a tendency to have no concept of time as a linear entity and know in your heart that time is literally the existence of the past, present and future in a single moment. You live for for now.

If Crow has come into your Dream;

Dreaming of of this birdΒ is usually a message from your sub-conscience. If the crow is flying is means that you need to bring what is hidden in sub-conscience to the surface in order to move forward in your life. If the birdΒ is feasting your sub-conscience is telling you that your current course of action will bring forth a great bounty – however make sure that what you are manifesting is what you really want in your life. A crow watching you or following you in your dream is a good omen of positive changes coming up in your life.

Alternatively Crow could be warning you that if you continue on your present course of action, you may be in for a great deal of disappointment.

Please have a close look at the Quotation Box at the top of the page before you make a comment or ask a question. There are at least five different messages that can appear in the box and more often that not your personal guides will see to it that the message is appropriate to what your visiting Crow was trying to convey to you. We try to answer as many comments as possible – but please be sure you have not already had your answer or that the answer is not in the first paragraph. If your Crow is dead – consider that the message is in it’s shadow form – in other words exactly opposite to what the message is saying and that you are somehow not accomplishing what it is asking for.

  • Hi,

    I had a strange encounter with a bird today that I would like you to ask about. I’m currently working in the Middle East and was out for a morning run in the desert as I often do to let my thoughts drift and to clear my mind. As I jogged, I suddenly noticed a shadow to my right and realized a bird was bearing down on me from behind. Not in a dive, just floating along in the wind. But it came close, within 5 feet. Still only seeing the shadow, I swerved and turned thinking it might land on me. The bird then flew off and landed about 25 feet away to my left (the wind was blowing right to left). It was a large crow.

    With that said, when the crow landed, I stopped and faced it. Drawing on some things I’ve read and heard, I asked the crow (in my head, not aloud) what it was trying to tell me. It began to squawk. My thoughts were clouded and nothing really occurred to me, but then the crow took off, flying into the wind towards me, and stopped over my head again. The wind pushed it away, but it flew back and hovered over my head for a few moments then let the wind push it back to a landing spot about a 25 ft away once again. Some more squawking and me still not realizing anything in particular. So I turned and walked and as I did, the crow flew off.

    Would you be able to interpret any significance in this encounter? Or perhaps steer me to some who might be able to give some insight?

    Thank you kindly for your consideration.

  • Hello, how are you. So I had a strange moment, I was sleeping then I awoke to the sound of a crow. The strange thing is I looked up and on my dresser in my room was this massive crow the size of a raven. Then I heard a strange noise come from it sounded like it was saying,” Your name is Icarus.” I do not care for a reply, I just wanted to give an experience to others.

  • I have a crow that has been visiting me six times a day sometimes more πŸ˜† I have affectionately called him machine gun Kelly because of the sound he makes (like a machine gun). He also makes a meowing noise!! He is the neatest crow I have ever met in my life!!! Omg he just showed up as I typed this!! I love him so much. He brought me out of a really deep depression! He is a very sweet crow! He makes me come out and visit him all the time. I have now been told by my Tulalip friend that my spirit animal is the crow! How very fitting! πŸ˜…

  • I always seem to see crows flying over me while driving, this past Sunday I was involved in a car accident which turns out was my fault even though the car I hit was speeding, so while I bounced off her car I hit another car coming from the other direction no one was hurt thankfully but I then find out by the police officer my Jeep wasn’t registered thinking this whole time my husband registered it he claims he did well he didn’t so my question is was this the crows way of reminding us it needs to be registered even though it’s going to cost me a years pay in damages having no insurance go figure, not required in my state or is this meaning something else I at least see one fly over me at least once a day! I’m not really superstitious but it’s creepy all the same plz help!

  • Yesterday while driving from work, I turned down the dirt road to our home. There was a crow in the middle of the road, just sitting there, looking at my approaching vehicle. I thought for sure it would fly away (I was not going fast) but it did not. I drove right over it then saw it fly away in my rear view window. What could that possible mean?

  • I have been seeing crows everywhere. Just now my car is dead.. been trying for hours to boost it.. and comes swooping in a crow.. a couple days ago I was at my friends place in the bathroom.. I could here a crow squaking like crazy… sometimes I will be walking and I’ll see crows and they are almost always extremely vocal… I feel very much so creeped out by these encounters.. I don’t know what it means…

  • Hi, my name is B.
    I had a dream about being in school and while walking down a corridor I stumbled upon a crow with a broken leg. I was taking care of it by giving it water and splinting it’s broken leg. I remember going up to the front desk of the school and asking for help which they gave by giving me a round box with a pillow on the bottom for the bird to rest. I woke up after the dream transition to a gun fight. Its the only dream I remember and usully a person has more than one dream in a night. Yet this one stuck to my conscious. May I please ask for guidance? I really am curious as to what it means.
    Thank you for your time.

  • I was on my back padio and I was listening to music and meditating and I hear a caw a few times and I opened my eyes and I saw a black crow sitting on the bird feeder and he was look at me while eating. Well since then, 5 days ago iv been seeing two black crows every time I step out side. There apparence are clear as day to me. I did some reading and it said to listen to there calls. One of them called out to me once and that was the first day I seen the first one. I can tell the difference in the two also.

  • This morning a single crow was cawing in tree directly over my home. I was a little uneasy.Now I’m seeking info abt crowd an understand them to be messengers of death and change. Which is it for me. I don’t want to give too much credence to this but I do pay attention to signs an symbols. Should I be wary?

  • 2 weeks ago and black crow woke me up in the morning . He was on the ground walking around and around my house kawasaki kawasaki and kawing. The third walk around he hopped up the front porch steps and kawing kawing kawing, he hopped down the steps and walked to the garage door, there he stopped again and karen like crazy, like he wanted in my house. Well, the story is I have a African grey parrot that I had no idea he was ill. Me being superstitious I thought oh no this crow is bad news. My African Grey passed away April 25, 2016 in my arms. I’m crying so hard. Had him 21 yrs.

  • I just had a strange encounter. I was sitting on my screened in patio drinking my coffee and I heard a loud sqwak multiple times with a pause in between each sqwak. I wasn’t sure what it was as I couldn’t see any birds, I actually thought 8t wad a duck. Then a black crow fly onto a tree outside the patio and looked at me he sqwaked a fewore times then flew to the ground and picked up a leaf or something and dropped it then flew back to the tree where a blue Jay or blue bird swooped at him and the crow.snapped at the bird. The blue Jay did it again and the crow changed trees and the blue did swooped again once or twice and the crow flew off.
    The crow did seem to be looking at me. I.am quite superstitious and come from family where signs are paid attention to. Just not sure what that was. Felt very intent full like a message.
    Any assistance would be great thanks!

  • I was at work on break and 2 crows flew above me and dropped a fresh 1/4 bird carcas next to me then sat above me on a light and watched me.. After a cpl minutes they flew off.. What could this mean?

  • I’ve been seeing this as bird outside my window on the telephone wire thing, it stares at me, I only open and stay at my window when it rains it let’s me think and makes me relaxed but it just sits there and stares. I don’t know what it wants from me.

  • I’ve seen the crow so far for the past 3 days. First time I seen the crow was on the 24 of March. I went to open my bathroom window and it was on a telephone wire. It did that kaw kaw and flow away. So two hours later, I just felt if I should just go out for a walk and look for it. As I went out, I’ve just seen normal birds which felt as a path way. So I followed them. Later on I heard the crow and I kinda seen a photo in my head, it’s hard to explain but it was the crows head and a view of New York City. So I just felt why not, so I ended up going to the City, I walked a lot just because I’m just that type of person who goes out of his ways, just to see and find out a answer, but long story short I ended up seeing a girl I liked. So the next day in the morning, I just felt something, so I left my house, seen birds flying and making a path I guess. But this time I seen the crow but two. As I followed them, but one went somewhere else, I didn’t see it but the other one, which seemed to be the one I’ve seem since the first day. It would fly away little and just wait for me to come, so I walked the paths it made. It would do the kaw kaw and just fly around. To spot to spot and I’ll just follow it. So I took photos and videos. But today on the 27, I’ve done the same thing like the other days and once again I’ll see them but today I seen both at the same time as they both made a path but I kept on seeing other birds as well but they where white. I think there where 3 white birds, they where flying around in circles. As the crows kept on making path ways. I’m really not sure whats going on. Since I was a kid, I was sent to India for a year, I was told while I was sleeping outside, there was a snake and it didn’t attack me, my uncle told me on how it just kept on looking at me but didn’t move at all. As my uncle came closer to the snake, it still didn’t move. He did end up killing it. I also seen a shooting star there. One I come back to New York, I think I was 13 or around that, but I was walking home around 12pm or 3 am but a few houses away from my house, I had a feeling I was being watching so I looked to the right and I seen a white ghost, she seemed to be around my age. She was young but she just stood there and just looked at me and now I just see crows.

  • Its come to my Attention that Yesterday Morning a Crow was on my wall outside my house and as I stared out, it looked straight in at me, Then again Today the same thing Happened, is this some kind of Sign? its totally got my attention now!!

  • Hi, I had a dream where crow flew towards me and landed on my head. He was heavy and I fed him bits of lamb. In the dream it was just before sunrise and as he went he pooed on me.

    What does this mean?

    Thank you for your time, bless be

  • My newest totem. Crow has come to appear quite frequently the last few days/weeks the more I think back, as if trying to get my attention. Now I understand why that is and am thankful for the reassurance.

  • A seer said she had a vision of me in a field with crows… What could this mean? I have tried to research but can’t figure out how… Thank you for you time blessed be…

  • Today, when I went outside, three crows came and landed on the fence in front of me. Two left shortly thereafter, but one stayed within a relatively close distance to me, approximately 15 feet, and cawed at me once. I looked at him and he looked at me. I walked off to the right to get in my car. I looked back and he was still there. Feel like there may have been a message for me, but for the life of me I have no idea what this means.

  • Last night I had a dream that I was sitting on the front porch of my house. Then I saw a crow flying in circles in the sky. Then it flew down and sat on the arm of the chair next to me. What does this mean?

  • I had a dream that I was loving three parrots and one crow came and sat on my head I then flew him away what does it mean

  • I just wanted to leave my story in hopes it helps others.
    I was on my way into the court house to file some very important papers. I was very nervous, scared, and lost if I was doing the right thing. A very loud, in your face type crow made his presence very known. Couldn’t miss him. On my way out he was there again.
    A month later on my court date, as im walking in I found it strange… there he was again!! I thought this must be his home. My court went very well, all my worries were for nothing. All worked out In my favor, with no lawyer I may add.
    On my way out I fully expected to encounter this crow again, when I stepped outside on my way to the car….. nothing. No crow. It was silent, almost dissapointing. Like he had vanished.
    After reading this I realized he was giving me the sign I was doing the right thing an that great changes were coming!

  • This has been interesting reading. Some of the stories seem a little bit far-fetched, frankly. But I am certain that if the crow isn’t my totem animal, he is the watcher over all of us, and should always be noticed and listened to. Several years ago we had an old wood stove in our home that was our primary source of heat. My husband was working in the shop and when I got home that night in the dead of winter he said he had a weird experience that day, and noted that there was a crow sitting in the tree right over our house that would NOT stop making a ruckus. He spent a lot of time there and would fly away for a bit only to return and continue making noise. That night I was very watchful because of the crow and I couldn’t sleep, and around 3am we had a flue fire that I was able to detect and put out before it burned the house down. A couple of years later also in the winter I hopped on the tractor to take hay to our cattle. It was bitterly cold, and windy, but as I was driving down to the pasture I heard a crow cawing repeatedly. I drove into the pasture, checked that all the cattle looked fine, and started to drive back out when I remembered the crow. I took one more pass through the pasture and discovered a newborn calf curled up on the WRONG side of the fence line, where his mother couldn’t get to him. If I hadn’t found him when I did, he would have died that night. My latest encounter was this summer when we were on the lake with our friends, and my husband and I were getting ready to try scuba diving. We pulled the boat up to a steep drop off and tied up, and right when we did I hear a crow cawing a warning, but couldn’t see him. I am a bit superstitious so i opted not to try scuba because of the crow, and I told my husband it was his choice but I didn’t think he should either. He went despite the warning, and ruptured his ear drum while on the dive and came to the surface in extreme pain. I ALWAYS listen to crows, they see everything and they are in tune with parts of this universe that we have no idea about, I believe.

  • My husband woke this morning with a strange dream of large human size crows. He said they were very playful and kept walking up to him to nudge him so that he would nudge them back and were very happy to play this game. I was in his dream too as he said I cautioned him to be careful of his eyes as they have sharp pointy beaks! He very seldom recalls any dreams so I would be interested if anyone could give us an interpretation of what it all means.

  • That’s lovely! I had a dream though that was a bit scary.. so i was with my dad and sister and talking to them about past lives and reincarnation and awaiting a black crow to come on top of my head which happened, I was trying to look cool , and i was really excited when i was waiting for the crow, yet when it landed on my head i was scared, and i felt like my third eye is opening up. Then i took the crow on my hands and all of a sudden it bit my finger really hard that i was fighting with it and trying to open it’s beak to release my finger ..any suggestions?
    P.S in my spiritual journey and throughout my life, I’ve always been scared of darkness, spirits and entities

  • The crow is one of my Spirit Animal Totems. I have quite a few passing through the garden, particularly at the moment when the pecan nuts are falling from the tree, they love eating them. In the last two days, 4 times when I have gazed out of my window, there is a crow on the birdbath, drinking water. I have never seen any crows drinking from the birdbath as it is quite small…usually its all the smaller birds, doves, waxbills etc. I feel the crow is trying to give me a message?? Any ideas?? Thanks.

  • What does it mean to seee a BROWN crow. I always see crow, but this time it was only one single Brown crow. And I was in shock, I was amazed

  • I am wondering if someone can help me out with something. Yesterday, my daughter who is 8 and I we’re leaving a pool party and on the window shield was a black crow. When I got into the car the black crow was looking at us, me, and calling and squaking loudly and would not get off the car. Finally someone told me to start the car and the bird would fly away. I did that and the bird hung on for dear life. I was going very slow, finally I called 911 and the bird flew away. Now, I’ve always been told that black crows are a symbol of bad luck. However I don’t believe God would make such a creature. There is a lot of stuff going on in my life, I have a second interview on Tuesday, my family and I are kind of at odds, and I’m wondering if this could actually have been a good thing and or perhaps with the crow was trying to say, or if I’m just reading too much into it and it was just a “bird” on my car. I pray a lot, I love Jesus and God, I believe in the Angels, I don’t dabble in witchcraft, and so maybe I am reading into something. Does anyone have any insight on this. I will say, because I’m very superstitious I was very scared and freaked out. Now I’m thinking it was just a bird. I am also thinking that maybe I should try to reconcile with the family who are at odds. Any ideas?

    • Hi I know it’s been a long time that you posted this but I am just reading it now. To me when you explained your experience, I was thinking that maybe you are holding on to things to tightly. Maybe the crow was showing this to you. She/he was holding on and wouldn’t let go. And since they are the messenger bird, they are generally here to do just that…..bringing us a message.

  • Crows are always present around me. They seem to tell me that change is to be embraced, and of late, that all the pieces of my journey are about to join together in an astounding way. I am full of gratitude and peace. . May each of you be also.

  • What does it mean if you see a raven or a crow (Couldn’t tell which) flies away from you and then back? I saw a darkly colored bird flying away and back as if it wanted me to come. Unfortunately, I couldn’t follow it because I was stuck in a moving car.

  • πŸ˜‰ ❓ I have a crow that I don’t feed and he brings me things almost everyday he has been bringing me feathers? What does this mean???

  • I live near plenty of crow murders (bug groups of crows) and my father had one as a pet a long while back. I was in love with that bird for many years to come until it had died. Me and my father buried it in the cemetery he found it in. That was the first and last time I ever saw my dad cry. 😳 The crow left me with nightmares and hollow sounds when I went to sleep from then on. It seemed to have stopped when I turned about thirteen, but lately it’s been happening again, and it is the exact same sound. Not to mention, his house is being flooded in crows and ravens lately. Usually we only see them in the cemetery. : / I’m confused, but not really afraid…

  • 😯 I am working toward my BFA and that’s all I’ve ever wanted to do. I have been off track for thirteen years working at a job I hate and raising a child on my own. My daughter has grown and left under bad circumstances and yesterday I was displaced from my place of employment. The last several semesters the crow has shown up in much of my artwork and someone suggested to me it might be my spirit animal. I dismissed that notion. I stayed home from class today and have been haunted by a crow all day. If this site reads true then I suddenly have a breath of hope that all is well and all signs point to promise of light from the dark and good things on the horizon.

  • i had a dream where i was best friends with a crow and i when i woke up i missed it i dont know if the dream means anything comment if you have a idea

  • I sat on my back porch around 11 am and looked up to the trees to my left on the hill. There sat an owl and 6 vultures. 2 crows came and sat near πŸ˜› ❓ them on another branch. I thought there might be a wounded animal I went up the hill to check. I found nothing there. The birds have not returned either. I am concerned. All the research I’ve done into these animals separately don’t look good to them being together watching me. Any advice? Jeanette KB

  • Quite a few things to say about the crow meaning and such.

    A fgew years ago, I’d dream of crows and shape shifting into one. I’d fly with my sisters and brothers in the air, and I could could control where I had went. I remember being happy, but growing sad when I started to fly downwards as I knew that my flying was over. I’;d turn back into a human when I landed.

    Another thing was I had always felt connected with crows after these dreams, and when I was walking to school a year ago a crow would land on the fence. Me and my sister were walking on the sidewalk and I looked at it. The crow cawed at me and me and my sister never thought much of it, but then again today a crow had landed on the fence at the same school and i walked underneath it. I said ‘hello’ to it in my mind,. but it sort of looked away, then back at me and I continued on my way.

    The night before, I had tried meditating to find my spirit animal but I don’t think I have seen anything other than circles sort of like a riplle. One would appear, grow bigger and disappear as another one appeared and did the same. I had seen quite a few animals appearing in the circle, but I wasn’t too sure what the animal was. I believe that my spirit animal hasn’t chosen me yet.

    I just wanted to share this.

  • I was in Moab UT recently hiking the delicate arch trail with my grown son while my wife waited in the truck. When we got back to and approached the truck there was a crow on the cab roof doing something like a drunken dance of slipping and sliding and flapping of wings for maybe 30 seconds then flew away. My son commented “that cant be good”! After coming home in the same week I had a crow on my house doing the same drunken slipping and sliding dance. As I live in the country and OTG I see and hear many behaviors of the crows on my land and when I walk alone. As a side note my wife and I are having relationship issues and out of the blue this last week she mentioned she feels like she will die soon. She is 9 years my junior and this concerns me as I do not know if the message of the crow is for me or her.

  • As a very young child I was never aloud out of my house, for various reasons. I always wanted to leave and get away but I never could. One night I had a dream that a large crow came and saved me. The next morning I woke to the sound of pecking on my window. It was a crow. I walked over and the crow began to peck and bite at the caulk that held my window shut. By evening that day he had removed enough of it that I could push the window open. I grabbed some clothes and ran away. The crow would fly ahead of me and land, looking back at me as if he wanted me to follow. For almost a week I followed him through the woods. He would show me what to eat and what to steer clear of. Eventually we reached a city. I lived in that city for 30 years before I saw my friend again. As I sat in my apartment I heard pecking at my window. I walked over and an old grey crow with a broken leg stood there. I knew it was my friend. I repaid his kindness by nursing him back to health and then let him go again. I am now 65. Four days ago two young crows carried the body of an old grey crow to my window and pecked in unison, the same way my friend had done all those years ago. I cried for a long time, knowing that my friend was dead. But I buried him in the park not far from where I lived. I plan to visit him every day. He saved me and I will remember him.

  • I always thought, the white wolf is my power animal. today i made a shamanic journey and … the wolfs were mere shadows and not interested and there were changes and between animals, a dead horse spat out a snake and a snake spat out a grashopper and then there was the crow and I became the crow and we stood both the same time, screaming at each other… it was… scary o_O

    • an addition -.-‘

      He sat on my shoulder and picket out my half blind eye and then my normal eye and then I saw the world with his eyes -.-‘ creepy… it was creepy -.-‘

  • I have a dream of an old Indian man, he is blind but a crow flies with him and is his eyes…he laughs at my ignorance but not in a cruel manner. He said I had to see… I had this dream years ago and it was so vivid I never forgot it. I recently found out that my mother was an Indian, my grandmother was with an Indian man near Dallas, Texas in the 1920s. It was a big secret! I don’t even know what tribe, and learning of it made me dream of the crow again. It is a messenger, but I don’t know how to find out more. I feel there is something life changing to finding out! Any ideas? Thanks!

  • Well… this makes a lot of sense now. All my life, I have found new jobs when I see three crows at my residence. (not a lot of crows living in the city) Almost like they are trying to get my attention. Then when I see the three crows at my current place of employment the job comes to an end within a week or less. For example; I arrived one morning at the phone company and three crows startled me as they flew out of a pine tree as I walked into work. Later that same day they announced all the jobs would be moved out of state from my department.
