In many cultures, the ancient and wise Raven has carried the medicine of magic and has been known as the messenger of the veiled mysteries. A sable-plumaged elemental spirit of metamorphosis, the Raven represents the mystery of the unknown, transformation, creation, wisdom, protection, and prophecy. Fly with Raven through the alchemical realms of transformation and intuition, where mystery and spirituality take flight over the rational problem solving of the mundane. Raven opens the door to your psyche, prying and probing beneath the “dark” surface of things in order to bring out your hidden truth into the “light.”
Raven is the messenger of the spiritual realm. When Raven appears in your life, you are about to experience a change in consciousness. Raven facilitates a way of be-ing in the world that is based on a different kind of consciousness; an awareness that is all knowing, a bit roguish, playful, and always compassionate. Messages from the cosmos, beyond the space and time of this reality, are brought forth through the acrobatically, energetic flight of the Raven. Raven is an oracle, speaking of messages from the spirit realm that may shape shift your life dramatically, as you open to the portals of opportunity, and become the magician of your life. Raven encourages one to align their creative life force with the spiritual laws of the Universe; the creation of vibrational energies necessary to manifest that which you most need into your physical reality. The Raven’s guttural caw cries, "You have earned the right to see and experience a little more of life's magic."
Raven is the guardian of ceremonial magic and in long distance healing. Raven guides the magic of healing and brings in a new state of wellness and abundance from the spiritual realm. If a ceremony is being performed to send energy to a disaster area where people need courage and strength, Raven would be the courier for that energy flow.
If you have chosen Raven, magic is in the air. It is the power of the unknown at work, and something special is about to happen. It may be time to call Raven as a courier to carry an intention, some healing energy, a thought, or a message. Remember, this magic moment came from the void of darkness, and the challenge is to slow down, listen, and assimilate this healing power into your consciousness gracefully, bringing this “inner treasure” to light.
