Before I knew anything about spirit or totem animals, I always felt a mysterious connection to crows. They came to me as a sort of spirit guide. Crows reminded me to stop and think about the things that were important to me and to ask myself if I was living from a place of honesty. They helped me get in touch with my own intuition. They are mysterious and can be perceived as dark, yet playful at times. They are also one of the most intelligent animals on earth with their ability to solve problems and recognize possible future events and others ways of thinking. Much like our own spirit, when we are present with it.
