New with a question

Hello, I'm new here. I've been on an initiation path for a long time and looking to learn more. Today I had a vision during meditation and met my power animal for the first time, Crow.

 

My question is, Crow picked up a white pebble and put it in my mouth so I would swallow it. I've tried to find out what it might mean, but I have no idea. First he swallowed the pebble and it passed through him, then he fed it to me. I was wondering what the significance was. If someone has an idea, I'd appreciate it.

Hi Michelle,

 

Welcome! :)

 

My answer is going to be a bit different than what you might expect coming from a shaman. The Maker tradition is unique in that we don't work with power animals per se. What we strive to do is break everything down into its most elemental energetic form. So how that would work with your vision is first, I have to push it back on to you for the meaning. How I would approach it is that I would take the vision and try to break it down into an energetic construct and read the energy of that. So first of all, I would look at the setting and circumstances in which I met Crow and ask what significance do they have to me personally? I would do the same with Crow. You do probably have a symbolic meaning attached to Crow but you also need to look at your own experience with crows. How do they strike you emotionally? Where do you feel a connection to them - look for something like a gut feeling, where it resonates with you most strongly. The reason for this is that your own energy is involved very much in this exchange. It interwoven into it and so you need to understand where you personally connect to it through your own personal history.

 

If I were to look at the scene as you described with Crow passing a pebble and then feeding it to you, I would say that Crow is trying to pass on its knowledge to you, for you to inherit that. But perhaps there is an experience in your life where a pebble or something being passed through someone or something has meant something to you in your past. If so, then this experience could definitely mean something else.

 

So I'm sorry if it seems like I'm not really answering your question but if you can find the answer yourself, which is contained within your own personal history, then it will give you more power because you will own this experience yourself on your own terms.

 

Hope this helps and thanks for posting,

Thanks Lorrie, that's actually very helpful :) It's what I do with people when interpreting their dreams, I get them to explore their own meaning of the symbols.

 

I had not thought of the passing on of knowledge with the pebble. That fits really well for me.

 

Thank you :D

Last winter a forest mouse moved into the house. When i was sitting in a little room having my cigarette he kept coming very close to me, sitting very still just looking at me, then he would sneak out the door. It took time and then I got it. i journeyd a lot with that mouse and then on one journey, we where sitting on a stone looking at a landscape, he told me to swallow him. I said i couldnt do this, he was my friend, but he reminded me that this was only in my head, so i did. Then i met someone very special and more understandings was passed on. There is no need to understand, Trust your mind, follow the instructions and god things will come.
