What does it mean when black crows are around your house?

Having black crows around your house is the time for you to understand better what is happening in your life. Let us delve deeper into what their presence means!

1) You Are Not Alone

Black crows are associated with the divine universe itself, as they represent magic, mystery, and the unknown.

When these crows start gathering around your house, this is a reminder of the spiritual world.

In this experience of a soul, living in the human body, you must remember that you are not alone.

You are connected to everything around you, even if you cannot always comprehend it.

The universe is here to remind you, that it is there with you every step of the way. It may come in hints and clues of nature!

  • But what is it reminding you that it will always be there?
  • Whether you remember this connection or not?

You are connected infinitely. So you are not alone, even when you think you are.

The universe is saying “I see you lonely,” and “I am here with you.”

2) Address Your Fears

If seeing a flock of crows have you feeling fear and dread, this is the universe’s sign to take a good look at how you perceive the world.

From what gaze do you see life?

Are you looking fearfully and afraid

Is there an anticipation of something wrong or worse?

These black crows gather together, so their presence reminds you to take a deeper look at your inner world.

Understanding and acknowledging your inner world is the first step to learning to create your reality, as then you will be aware of how you shape your reality.

Do not let your fears hold you back.

Time to take a good look!

3) Use Your Wisdom

Crows other than being highly intelligent, have great memories.

There have been studies showing that a crow can hold their grudges after many years.

Their great memory allows them to recall the past and remember faces, too.

This is an ability that is one way that allows them to stay out of danger or away from harmful individuals.

This keeps them safe. This is the universe reminding you of your inner wisdom that you need to apply. What inner knowledge are you ignoring about a current situation?

Is there something you already know but find hard to accept?

Look to your past and what it has taught you.

Listen to your inner voice. It is there for a reason.

4) A Spiritual Awakening

Crows have been known as spiritual messengers by many cultures.

If you’ve started seeing more crows around your house, this is the universe sending you a message of initiation.

You are slowly becoming more alert, and you will notice your natural gifts start to awaken soon. You will soon start to access more parts of yourselves. 

Release your doubts and settle into your journey.

You are being embraced by the divine.

The universe is asking you to trust it.

5) Ancestral Protection

In many ancient cultures, crows are thought to bring messages of protection and guidance.

With a lot of them gathering around your house, it means that you need to be more alert about whatever decisions are coming your way.

They could be forewarning you about someone’s deceitful or selfish behavior and asking you to be on the lookout so you don’t run into problems. Keep an eye out.

Protect yourself. Watch out for your own best interest.

See where people’s motivations lie and if you have been turning a blind eye to someone’s shady behavior, it’s time to take it.

Do not let people think they can walk over you.

These crows are gathering to remind you that you are protected, and that is why you are being given this information ahead of time so you can deal with it in a better manner.

Serving your own interests is not a selfish thing.

6) You Are Being Guided

Answers can often arrive in the most unexpected of places, the same way the crows arrive in your life.

This is a reminder that guidance from the universe does not always come in one form. 

If you have questions, and confusion about the situations in your life, this is the universe saying lookout.

There are clues all around you.

Do not be afraid to reach out.

You have guides looking out for you, and they are ready to help.

To better connect with them:

  • Write down your problem and journal about it;
  • Say it out loud, if you were talking to them;
  • Shape what you want to say as a prayer, and then leave it out to the universe.

A sign, a place, a person, or a mere random happening will soon bring you the answer that you are looking for.

Stay open and receive energy.  

7) Good Things Are On Their Way

If things have been going downhill for you, the crows are here to tell you that your luck is about to change.

Keep a positive mindset.

Things are turning in your favor even if you cannot see them. 

What is happening in the background is for you, and soon it will come to light. Something good will find its way to you.

If this is the confirmation you were looking for to find some relief in turbulent times, then the answer is yes to having a break.

Know good things are to come, and be patient!

Crows are known to bring prosperity, fortune, and divine intervention to turn one’s life around. 

Why are there so many crows around my house?

Crows on the roof

Generally, crows could be around your house for many reasons.

They could be on the search for some sources of food.

Another could be that there are nesting areas, and they are looking for a place to make a community for themselves.

They could also be in the middle of a migration and choose your house as a resting spot before they start their travels again.

However, do not take these sightings for granted.

Black crows bring profound lessons with them and their presence. When they surround your house, recognize that the season of your life is changing. You are going through a transformation.

You are also migrating energetically. Moving on from one lesson to the other, or starting a completely new phase in your life.

The crows have sensed this change in energy and have gathered around your home.

Think of yourself as lucky.

Why are so Many crows in my yard (spiritually)?

Black crow in somene's yard

With so many crows in your hand, it is surely a special thing. Crows prefer to move separately, except when they roost, they prefer their community, their flock

Many crows in your yard, represent a community that has gathered.

This is the spiritual energy of the singular energy of your journey in balance with your need for connection and how others play part in the larger plan.

This is asking you to look at how you survive and cope in the world, especially when it comes to your relationships

Spiritually this is an indicator to look at your individual needs and the ones that you expect in your relationships and community. 

 Questions you can ask yourself are:

  1. Have you been desiring more connection or dismissing your emotional needs as weak?
  2. Where are the boundaries in your relationships and do they help you?
  3. How can you get your needs met better?
  4. Are you isolating out of fear of getting hurt?

This is the time to get introspective.

If this is a scary, lonely time for you the crows are here to remind you that you are not alone and are supported. The crows are here to support you.

Crows also sense energies, so they must be sensing a shift in the energies around your house and the transformation taking place.

Another reason they are gathered there is that they are sensing spirits around your area and are wanting to hold space for you for protection.

Is this a positive or a negative omen?

Seeing crows is always a positive omen, for these messages come for you.

They are meant to be for you, not against you.

Even forewarnings or things to be careful of are matters of understanding how to make the best of your current reality.

So when you see crows gathering, take it as the universe conspiring to have your best interests at heart.

This is the universe working with you.

Trust where your spirituality takes you. The universe and you are a team.

The crows are on your side.

Should I be concerned?

Crows and bad messages from God

When life starts to change or show us new knowledge, we can often feel uncertain or unsure.

This is part of the process of growing spiritually.

Taking every new wisdom as it comes and learning to navigate the world.

With time you’ll realize this is nothing to be concerned about and perhaps will even enjoy the mysterious and wonderful ways the universe converses with you.

The crows come to protect, to inform, bringing in messages for your higher purpose. So accept the situation and make use of the divine awareness that you are being granted.

Read the meaning of seeing dead crows.

Final Words

Overall, there is no harm when the crows come to visit.

You can always try to be their friend, by leaving little food offerings for them. Many people have crows and give them shiny trinkets, coins, or odd things as thank you.

What’s stopping you from learning and interacting with all the way the universe manifests around you?

Listen to the wise crows and show the universe that you are listening.

  1. 8 crows or more is symbolic of Devine ancestral protection. I have no idea why u would tell people it means death or illness.
    What it actually means, is spiritual protection
    And a warning to the person that someone is being deceitful or trying to cause blockages in that person’s life. They gather for protection…. Our ancestors warn us in this way so we can actually pay attention just in case we are sitting in negative energy or something comes along that seems to good to be true. Saying it means death or serious illness and lying about people ancient cultures still practiced today is very dangerous for a vulnerable person who googles what it means. 8. Over the weekend I had 50. The more the better. The more the more protection. Pls be careful what u put out there u never know if u will unintentionally hurt someone. Bless

    1. Thankyou for your comments. My son is going through a hard time at present with one thing after another and has been rather low in himself. I needed to read that. I’ve had dozens of crows since 6 am this morning flying over my home and in my garden. Reading that it could mean death of a loved one made my heart pound with worry.
