Christmas Crow…

Published on Dec 22, 2013 by in Animal Medicine, Teachings, Wholidays



I’ve always considered Crow as the left-handed guardian of MahaYogi Santa Claus.  I often refer to Crows during this time as Christmas Crows.  Each one you see during this time is big Medicine! 

 You see, Crow knows the unknowable mysteries of creation and is the keeper of all sacred law (‘dharma’ in yoga). There are several species of Crow. Raven is one and our delightful Magpies another. Crow medicine people, such as MahaYogi Santa, are masters of illusion. Do not try to figure Crow (or Santa) out.  It is the power of the unknown at work, and something special is about to happen.

Crow is also the guardian of ceremonial magic and in any healing circle?  Crow is present. Crow guides the magic of healing and the change in consciousness that will bring about a new reality and dispel “dis-ease” or illness or injury.  Be sure of this;  whenever Crows are around?  Magic is near and you are about to experience a change in consciousness…IF your inner Practice has been steadfast!  Too much time spent in the Outer World without meditation, yoga, or pranayam will surely deplete our ability to receive Crow’s (and MahaYogi Santa’s) Blessings.    

Similarly to how MahaYogi Santa can transmigrate His Consciousness to bec(om)e omnipresent and suddenly soar down dark chimneys and fly across the dark, cold night?   So too, can Christmas Crow can give you the courage to enter the darkness of the void, which is the home of all that is not yet in form.
