The Crow Spirit Animal, a Guide about Fearlessness and Determination
Have you ever watched a group of crows ganging up together and chasing out birds much bigger than they are? This behavior makes the crow a useful animal totem to call when you need support in dealing with adversity. If the crow chose you as your power animal, you are encouraged to develop your personal will power and speak your truth more loudly.
Crows always seem to be able to get away with what they are after, be it a piece of food left on the road or sneaking into other birds’ nests to steal or eat their eggs. Echoing this trait, those with the crow as totem or spirit guide might watch for the tendency to trick or be a bit manipulative.
Where there is deception, there is a way to peel it away… this crow is actually an art piece in an art gallery in Santa Fe, NM. I was stunned at its likeness to a real crow.
I am also stunned at our ability as humans to mimic crows’ behavior. After all, we can go back and read ‘David and Goliath’ and remember how intense the story is: David, uses a sling shot and takes down the giant with a rock. So, there’s more to the story, but one thing is clear; size doesn’t matter. We have to be swift, smart, and silky-smooth in getting what we want, but what about those that don’t feel the same way? Do they become desperate crow, assimilating different shapes and sizes, and using ultimate manipulation to get what they want? Is this what the world has cornered us into?
I would prefer to think that we all have fantastic gifts – we are all capable of great feats without using sling shots with rocks. So, what’s in your bag?
