Ref.CR0073 - Raven head
In American Indian medicine tradition, light comes out of darkness, and black is associated with the Void – the source of all energy – Raven its messenger. That is why it is associated with magic, and is a messenger of that which is to come. Raven says there is a need to make dramatic changes in the way you perceive things. Raven is encouraging you to expect the unexpected.
Raven is the courier of the energy-flow that brings about changes and creates new realities.
In American mystical traditions, Raven was the Guardian of Ceremonial Magic and Absent Healing. It, therefore, represented the power that carried the “message” or intention of the ceremony to its destination, and thus brought about its manifestation.
Throughout time, Raven has carried the medicine of magi. This has been true in many cultures across the planet. It is sacred, in the medicine way, to honor Raven as the bringer of magic.
Raven magic is a powerful medicine that can give you the courage to enter the darkness of the void, which is the home of all that is not yet in form. The void is called the Great Mystery. Great Mystery existed before all other things came into being. The heart of creation lives inside the void and emerged from the Great Mystery. Raven is the messenger of the void.
Because Raven is the guardian of ceremonial magic and in absentia healing, it is in any healing circle, present. Raven guides the magic of healing and the change in consciousness that will bring about a new reality and dispel Illusions.
Raven is the messenger that carries all energy flows of ceremonial magic between the ceremony, itself and the intended destination.
Remember that as it is from the Void it is Unknowable and the message is to trust – be careful not to misuse this power because the black hole the vortex of the void from which everything comes is a torus so what you send will return. Raven is for the High initiate that is ready to use this totem for the highest good.
