As mentioned in my blog from New Year’s Day, Crow Woman is the Guardian of Sacred Law. I did some reading this morning (after getting 8 hours of sleep — FINALLY!) regarding the significance of Crow Woman from a Native American standpoint. I have Native American heritage (Ottawa/Ojibwe). The Ottawa considered the Crow to be messengers. In Cree lore, Crow Woman lived between two worlds, bringing messages through dreams to her tribe.
“Her messages are not always welcome or immediately understood but their impact is clear.”
The relationship between Crow Woman, my Sun Sign Capricorn and my 13 Moon Signature White Planetary Mirror holds significance for me. Crow Woman and the goat of Capricorn both draw forth images of living between two worlds while White Planetary Mirror’s responsibility is to be a reflection of death. Death, in my humble opinion, is not to be feared. It is ultimately a letting go of what no longer serves our purpose. When the physical body can no longer contain our immense spirit, it passes away.
Death is not something I find talked about regularly in a conversation with friends, yet every moment of every day we find ourselves in the process of letting go or needing to let go of something that is detrimental to our overall survival. It always comes down to choices. We choose to eat what we want to, whether it’s deemed “good” or “bad” for us. We choose to get involved emotionally and mentally with the ways of the world which then affect us physically. Becoming consciously aware of what we think, say and do — every moment of every day — is not just important, but paramount to our personal health and healing.
When I talk to friends about their choices — what they put in their bodies: food, smoking, pharmaceuticals, alcohol; and what thoughts, words and actions come forth from them) the message is not often not welcomed or understood. Yet one of my purposes on earth is to create opportunities for people to look more deeply inward, to let go of those things that keep them from their true identity — and it is also to allow them to be who they are without judgement. So, Crow Woman I am — walking between two worlds.
Clarity — mental, emotional and physical — is my focus for 2013. Clarity around boundaries. Clarity with absolute awareness (realization) — there’s no sense in focusing on clarity if I’m unwilling to act with integrity on the visions that appear, holding sacred my responsibility of bringing balance to my world while being unattached to the things of the world. Indeed the world’s way are not my ways, but I do live IN the world — I have a body, a mind, a heart and an immense spirit which contribute to how the quality of my life unfolds. I am Crow Woman, Guardian of Sacred Law. Sacred Law: What one expresses into the world creates the world.
I hold the power to transform. I am not afraid to use it.
The dance of life. Come…come and dance with me. Create, let love radiate, be the truth of who you are.
