Thanks for asking me. The crow is a very powerful animal symbol. They have been sacred to cultures such as some Native American tribes, the Celts, the
Greeks, and even Asian cultures as well. It symbolizes that which travels between the worlds of the living & the dead (like any good Shaman can do),
and also represents the messenger or divine oracle.
While only you can truly figure out what the dream means, here are a couple of suggestions:
1) it might signal a change of life or of a life circumstance that will ultimately lead to you living "truer" to your basic, spiritual self. Here is
an example of what happened to a friend of mine. He had a very loveless marriage to a rich woman; had material wealth but was miserable. One night
while throwing out the garbage a big crow landed on the can and stared at him. Then it reared up on its legs, spread out its wings, and screamed at
him. He was not a mystic-minded man but this really made an impression on him. The next day, his wife found out about an affair he was having and
divorced him. While he lost $$$, he found himself & the last time I saw him he was free, happy, looked younger, and was taking courses in college in a
subject he always wanted to pursue. He believed that it was the crow who signaled this change in his life.
2) If you find yourself with some predictive dream ability, the visit from the crow may be a sign that you should look into this ability further. The
crow is the sacred animal totem of prophecy for many cultures, and when such an animal visits you in a dream in the way you have described, it's its
way of "getting your attention."
I would suggest if you are not already doing so to keep a dream journal, and to do some research into things like dreaming, animal totems, crows,
shamanism, or whatever strikes your fancy.
I wish you the best of luck on your journey!
