Do not be afraid to use your voice powerfully to speak out with integrity. Know that you will need to address these issues in order to restore harmony.

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 Crow 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 Crow 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.

  • 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.

  • 😉 ❓ 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 😛 ❓ 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.
