Crow the bringer of gifts

Postby DaRC » 10 Mar 2015, 12:28

An interesting article on the BBC website about Crow friends and the gifts they bring
Most dear is fire to the sons of men,
most sweet the sight of the sun;
good is health if one can but keep it,
and to live a life without shame. (Havamal 68) Image

Hello to all, I just wanted to say that I read the article about the crows and absolutely loved it. Actually, my profile photo is a crow with a broken wing that came to me in a bit of an ironic manner, and he was receiving his first bath after coming into my care. I have tended and still do continue to have a wide variety of "wild" animals that attach to me and some are Spirit Guides.

I have even had dragonflies that literally copied every exact movement I would make as they were perched on a fence wire in my backyard. I even asked a couple of them if they would be willing to please lift up their front-most right leg for me as high as they could lift it, then hold that certain pose for a few seconds, and then make a waving motion at me. As crazy as this would sound to people who think such things are nothing but "hogwash", I assure that this occurrence did in fact happen.

Besides the dragonflies, I have had many similar occurrences with many various animals; too many to even attempt to go into all the details in this post right now. I will say though, that when I truly pause to ponder on all of it, it could blow my mind, if not for the fact that I have long ago already grown so used to it to the point that it is very commom-place for myself. I still hope and set my intentions that I never become so used to it being my own "normal", that I should ever, ever take it for granted.

Anyhow, crows in specific, along with bats have always, since my very early childhood have been animals that I have never once lost my deep sense of connection with. Bat is my main animal guide/totem since as far back as I can remember.

Well, I will close out this particular response for now, and as always, thanks for reading

I love Crows! There is a large family of Crows that lives on my street, and I enjoy watching the young ones find their wings every year.
