Daily Angel Oracle Card: Crow ~ Law, from the Animal Dreaming Oracle Card deck, by Scott Alexander King, artwork by Karen Branchflower, published by Blue Angel
Crow ~ Law: “As a creature of the Void, Crow is believed to exist in the past, present and future simultaneously, to embody darkness within light and light within darkness and to watch over all the worlds and dimensions from all viewpoints in chorus. She makes little distinction between right and wrong, but acknowledges the necessity for the existence of both. Without them, we would not learn the lessons afforded by choice.
According to legend, when Crow appears, she is challenging our perceptions while daring us to follow her deep into the Void, into our consciousness, to strengthen our principles and our relationship with Spirit. Crow encourages us to seek the wisdom found in the inner silence and to ponder our actions and reactions to life. We inherently know the difference between right and wrong. Crow asks us, therefore, to trust our judgment and make the most sensible decision when one is required.
Her appearance generally heralds a sudden but necessary change, a wake up call or a lesson in self-discovery.
Crow is one of the sacred keepers of universal law and the custodian of ancient records. She espouses the law of three; the understanding that whatever we do will be returned to us threefold, that it matters not what we do in this life so long as our actions bring harm to none. She reminds us that all our actions are recorded and, although karma appears patient, it is often ruthless in its delivery. To understand these laws and to live by them with the purest intent, we see us exit this life and journey to the next with a clear memory of our previous life and the lessons learned during that time.
If Crow has flown into your cards today, listen to your instincts and act upon them in a way that honourably serves your purpose. Treat others as you would like to be treated, never expect others to do what you should do yourself and never act in a way that may cause harm to another. Breaking these simple rules will see the strong-arm of spiritual law slam down the karmic hammer.
You have all the wisdom and knowledge you need within you to make the right decision. Call upon it now and you cannot make a mistake.”*

Karma is a powerful force. You don’t want to mess with it. I have seen karma at work and it is interesting to see that most often, people are unaware that they are living their karma, even though it may seem so obvious to an outsider. Karma will often serve up the exact same situation for someone as they have put someone in. It is not about the details, it’s about the emotional impact. Losing everything that is important to you. Think Harvey Weinstein. You want something so you take it. And it comes back to bite you in the end.
Karma is not an issue when you are working from a heart centered space. It is not an issue when you are setting the intention that any action or resolution be for the highest good of All concerned. Karma can be kind too, but it works best when you are not expecting anything in return.
Crow is here to remind us all to do the right thing. Take the high road, even if someone else is not. Do not lower yourself to anyone elses’s level. Rise above the drama. Even if it looks as if you might lose something over it. Know that as one door shuts, another one opens. And what is behind that door is directly related to how you handle the situation.
Lead with love, no matter how challenging and you will always win.
Live by the threefold law with each and every choice you make.
