Native American medicine draws on insight, inspiration, admiration, and connection with NATURE. Acting as an ideal model of our own potential, the natural world is representative of how to behave, teaching us what traits to acquire and why connection with all living things is essential, imperative. I have already featured a piece on Owls and their notable characteristics, on what they represent and on what is learned when being attune to their way of life. Here I will share about the mystical and peculiar CROW. For a while they have been following me around as I go about my day. They are beautiful. At times frightful because of their pronounced color, yet when I see them I feel safe, held in a space of power, magic, inventiveness, and revelation.
Throughout various cultural lore, Crows have been noted as being evocative birds reminding us daily that the Secret Magic of Creation is Calling. With an All Day and All Year power cycle, the Crow is a constant reminder to manifest creativity and magic throughout our lives. A strikingly luxurious coat of all black feathers with hints of deep blue and purple, the Crow’s color is in itself emblematic of creation for black is the archetypal color of which something NEW is born. The dark night leads to a fresh new day. Additionally, the Crow is associated with the winds of change–meaning that if you observe this particular bird and embrace its teachings, you will have the capacity to see how the winds of your life are blowing and how to adjust your own life flights.
Magic, it truly is everywhere, embrace the beauty. xx, Sc
