Ok so here is the deal. I have been meditating allot lately about my religious path, and trying to figure out what it is that is going to really work for me. So long story short, for the last couple months I have been coming up short meditation wise. It has been a little frustrating, because I usually find meditation to be very helpful in clearing my mind and allowing me to see what is already right in front of me. However last week I was trying to meditate but my back was bothering me and it was not going well and I was about to get up and walk away, when I opened my eyes and my gaze was drawn to a book on my shelf with a crow on the cover. Well the picture must have imprinted on my retina, because when I looked away I saw the crow every where.

   So that alone wouldn't bother me but then a couple of hours later I was looking at some art on ebay and there was a painting of a crow, again on its own no big deal but because of what had happened earlier I was a little drawn to the painting. so I enlarged the image and when I did my computer froze leaving the image of the crow frozen on my monitor, again not such a big deal, could be coincidence. When my husband came home I was telling him about this funny coincidence when a crow lands on my deck outside and begins to crow.

Well it has been a week since all of this happened and there has been slowly growing  group of crows hanging out in my apple tree since. The have been cawing constantly. Individually these things don't seem to be significant, but when you add them up I'm not so sure. It has been driving me insane. My conclusions don't seem to add up and I could use some fresh perspective.

Thanks

Sounds like a very insistent totem to me.

When I experience something like this, I go at it at the level of synchronicity and symbol first of all, before I would conclude anything about the crow possibly being your totem or animal ally...particularly if you don't feel very crow-like in your soul.  ONe thing you don't mention in your question, is how you FEEL about the crow, except to mention that all these crows appearing are "driving you insane"  (WHy?  I think if this happened to me, I 'd be curious about it, rather than feel driven insane....).  That aspect of your feeling towards the crow(s) seems important to me. 

This is a good link to the Pagan significance of the crow:  http://paganismwicca.suite101.com/article.cfm/crow_mysterious_pagan_symbol
