Symbolic Meaning Of Black Crow
I am looking to find the symbolic meaning of a black crow.
More specifically, what does it mean when a crow falls down your chimney? A black crow came down my chimney this morning. It was alive and I helped it to go free by letting him fly though my window.
My friends tell me it's a sign of the devil and I am doomed. it scared me.
Re: the symbolic meaning of a black crow;
I can understand how something so strange and rare as this occurrence might leave you feeling frightened, particularly in the face of others telling you that it is a 'sign of doom.'
In truth, You are the only one who can give meaning to this occurrence. It is you in this instance, who gets the final say on what the symbolic meaning of a black crow is.
Instead of seeing it as a bad omen, why not focus upon the fact that something very rare and special occurred and more importantly, that you were able to help another living creature (one who was likely quite frantic and frightened) to freedom and safety. As far as that crow was concerned, you saved the day!
It there a way you could frame this occurrence, and therefore, see the symbolic meaning of a black crow, in a light that would have you seeing it more as a beautiful 'gift' than a bad omen?
I suspect so, as in your description, you describe the bird as being 'still alive'...and then, 'helping him to freedom' and 'letting him fly through your window.'
In my estimation, you had yourself an incredible and rare experience.
As far as my sense goes, that is an incredibly good sign and something that you will likely never forget as long as you live. Hold onto to those feelings of 'helping' and 'freeing' another living creature who crossed your path in a very unexpected way and the only impact this occurrence can have on your life, will be one of benefit and positivity.
In my own experience, black crows have come to represent harbingers of peace and messages of hope. I see them as playful, even funny creatures who often knock themselves out to bring me signs of positivity.
We are always attracting circumstances to us that support and guide us towards the light. The choice is yours, however you choose to see this, that will be its effect.
Hope this helps,
