The crow is a watcher of the world. It sits in a tree, on a wall, rarely on a wire strung in the air by mankind to carry his electricity or words.
The Crow requires we speak and practice truth in all things. When you find untruth, correct it. The crow requires we seek the truth and when we are in all things truthful, what we want becomes true, and comes into existence.
This may mean correcting what is wrong in your life. Do not judge yourself. Truth is everything, and it is your way forward from now. Do not dwell on whether you should act truthfully in a situation, just be truthful and do not let your busy mind or ego persuade you otherwise.
In situations where you are stressed, such as at work, be truthful, speak your mind and articulate it clearly. If you find you have trouble speaking up and speaking clearly, your Throat Chakra may be blocked. This would be a good time to have the Chakra, and all the other chakras cleared so that people may hear you clearly.
You create your own world. You populate it with people, places, things, events. You also populate it with happiness, sadness, misery, and a sunny disposition.
In creating your world, you impact the world that Mother Gaia has gifted us with. Wood furniture is made from trees that grew tall and were harvested by man. Make sure the furniture you buy is made from trees that will be replanted. While you have a dream of a friendly house and nice things, dream also about the hope and cleanliness of the world.
In life we dream of things we can and want to achieve in the limited time we have for life. Now is the time to dream bigger than the dreams that have brought us to this moment, and while you do that, make sure that you help your family and friends with their dreams.
Help feed them as you would your animals and your garden. Feed the stray animals that come by looking for help. Animals have an intrinsic knowledge of humans they can trust. Be one of those that help them.
The spiral is an ancient symbol of growth and evolution. Seen in the snake that lies coiled and sleeping, it is also seen in the heavens, and in plants. Spend some time thinking and meditating on your life and the things and people in your life. Trace the spiral in your life and if you are attuned to Reiki, say the name of the Power Symbol, Cho ku Rei three times to give your thoughts energy.
We all struggle with things in life. It may be personal or it may be at work. The Spiral is a message of newness and growth. Allow Cho ku Rei to give you energy to change and develop as the spiral takes us away from the core of our old selves. Know that change in ourselves is difficult and when we get to a new place in our life. It’s hard to understand and be comfortable when we get there.
There are many ways to draw a spiral, Cho ku Rei, for all its energy and growth is a spiral at its heart. Pull up a picture of the symbol and study the spiral. There is a left facing symbol and a right facing version. One is feminine and one is masculine. Consider the spiral at the core of Cho ku Rei and know that both masculine and feminine energy are needed to move forward. Choose the one that speaks to you the most.
