this past Summer (2012)
It's not often that I dream of creatures other than dogs and cats (that I remember). But for the first time last night I had a dream about crows. Not a lot of them...maybe a half dozen or so that I recall.
Since it's been hours since I woke from the dream, much has gone from my memory except for bits and pieces. But it's enough to give me the essence of the dream.
It's a funny thing that in many of my dreams, I never dream about the place I live in at that moment in time...and it was no different in this dream. I have no idea what house it was, it was unfamiliar to me, and I can't even say that the other person in the dream was a familiar person to me either. Yet--somehow--I knew that person...otherwise the dream wouldn't have flowed the way it did.
We were inside the home, and I went to open the door, and there were the crows, not far from the house, some on the ground, some in the trees. Something told me not to go out, but I needed to get some air in the house, it was horribly stuffy and hot in there, so I left the door open a little.
A crow landed on the top edge of the door, and I quickly pulled it further shut, so that it couldn't enter the house. All through this dream, there was dialogue with the other person, but I remember none of it.
I wasn't necessarily scared, but definitely worried about these crows, and it seemed terribly important that they did not get into the house, nor should we go out. There was no sense of doom or evil intent in the dream either, which is puzzling...but a good thing, I guess.
I am more than familiar with all the labels and the stigma that is attached to these birds...and ravens too...but there wasn't any of that in my dream. And I am not afraid of the birds...to me they are just that...birds.
Being curious, I 'Googled' what it might mean, and the one that makes the most sense to me is this, which said:
To me, it's more about change...not about death. A new beginning, maybe, of one thing or another...and we are fast approaching 2013! I'm game...it's time for some changes...more within me, not about geography! I am quite happy right where I am!
