BLACK BIRD MEDICINE
Recently, I had a dream in which a blackbird with a purplish sheen to its head appeared inside the back window ledge of my car. I tried to help it escape through the window, but it didn't want to leave. I recognized this as a medicine dream, appropriate for this moment in time.

I found many online references to Native American Blackbird Animal Medicine which together weave a great tale.

My bird book describes the Brewer's Blackbird: black with a purplish sheen to the head, a purplish green sheen to the body and a white eye.

MEANING: Creativity, Detail, Foundation

"Blackbird medicine people love to sing and have the ability use their voice to heal and inform."

Black Bird People are learning to use their gifts and talents to manifest their dreams into physical reality. Blackbird people have a talent that is ready to be released to the world, for all to see and hear. Blackbird is encouraging you to do it!

Bird People should remember that all birds are messengers from Great Spirit.

When Black Bird Medicine grabs your attention it is asking you to embrace your own talents and reveal them to the world. In the springtime, Blackbird is heard whistling beautiful songs from dawn until dusk. Blackbird cannot hold their talent back. Blackbird flies alone and does not typically form flocks. They may associate with other birds that share their same habitat, otherwise they are doing their own thing.

Even though Black Bird Medicine is an aggressive bird, the fight never lasts long. They are known for their melodious voice where they sing from high places such as; rooftops, trees and any other elevated perch. It is interesting how they enjoy standing alone singing and catching the attention of others. Humans recognize singing as a creative talent that not everyone masters. When Blackbird Medicine comes in front of you, it is asking you to recognize your creative talent. While this may not be singing, there is a talent that you should allow to shine. In other words, do not hide your Light under a bushel, sing it from the rooftops!

Adult male Blackbirds are easy to spot because of their yellow eye-ring and bill and they are often seen carrying their melodious tune from trees, rooftops and other elevated perches. When Blackbird builds a nest, it is with careful detail, attention and with a firm foundation.

Blackbird is so inspirational toward creativity, that The Beatles even wrote a song about him:

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free

Blackbird fly Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night

Blackbird fly Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Black Bird's message is about your creative talent, building a firm foundation to create and paying close attention to the details while at the same time sharing your inspirational gifts with the world.

Blackbird is saying: you were only waiting for this moment to arise, you were only waiting for this moment to be free.

Blackbird medicine people have the ability to use their voice to heal.

KEYWORDS: totem animals - Those with blackbird totems make excellent shamans and trance channelers.

The blackbird male's distinctive song during breeding season is loud and melodious with flute like qualities. Males often sing from high perches and both sexes produce a variety of sounds which include mimicking other birds. Blackbird medicine people love to sing and have the ability to use their voice to heal and inform. They are also good ventriloquists. The blackbirds iridescent black plumage holds the energies of mysticism and magic.

Druid legends say that the birds of Rhiannan are 3 blackbirds which sit and sing in the World tree of other worlds. Their singing puts the listener into a sleep or a trance which enables him or her to travel to the otherworld. It was said to impart mystic secrets. Those with this medicine often have a hypnotic influence on others as well as an uncanny ability to move between the seen and unseen worlds with clarity. They make excellent shamans and trance channelers.

Blackbirds are timid and prefer their own company over the company of others. In humans shyness and insecurity in group settings is common. Vulnerable to outside influences those with this totem need to remember to clear accumulated influences from their energy field on a regular basis.

Blackbirds spend much of their time on the ground. Its locomotion includes walking, climbing and hopping forward and backwards. They forage for food in open spaces although cover is always near by. When foraging in leaf litter under trees they sound like people walking . In humans this suggests an ability to remain grounded in the earth energies while walking a spiritual path.

When resting the blackbird is frequently seen stretching, legs extended back, side wings in full extension, tail spread, and the head tilted to one side as if listening. Yoga and movement therapy are beneficial for those that hold this totem.

The blackbirds flights are low, short and undulating but fast and direct over open country. They move with determination and focus and can teach us how to do the same. When blackbird flies into your life your connection with nature and the forces of creation increase. The magic of the underworld surfaces in your life. Awareness is heightened and change on a cellular level begins. The blackbird teaches you how to acknowledge your power and use it to its fullest.

Blackbirds are, for some people, considered a good omen. Others believe that the Blackbird brings the lessons learned in meditation. It is also associated with travel to the Otherworld and the mysteries found there. Blackbird people are good to call upon when spiritual matters are at hand, and often, while rare, they are the best people to have when in a group.
