DAILY ANIMAL SPIRIT
Raven spirit | Expect healthy change.
Raven has long been known as the magical bird—the one who carries our messages and our prayers to spirit. Raven has been called a shape-shifter, and his message to you today is one of change—expect the unexpected, but know that Raven is flying close and will help you transform life’s challenges into life’s greatest blessings.
When Raven, as a spirit, comes cawing loudly into your life, it marks a moment to pause and seriously consider the messages coming your way.
Black as midnight, it’s not surprising to discover that, in many cultures, Raven’s symbolism and meaning are connected with death and the underworld.
At first, this meaning may seem dire, but the representation need not be literal. What does a Raven symbolize, if not death, darkness, and decay? Raven meanings have deeper spiritual symbolism. On the surface, Raven’s attraction to carrion can make this bird’s symbolism seem morbid.
But things aren’t always what they seem. Instead of interpreting Raven’s meaning as a dire message of doom, look for the broader significance of this bird’s symbolism.
Raven’s appearance is likely an omen that something is about to transform your life. Whether positive or negative, total transformation is usually dramatic. And, so, Raven spirit can help guide you safely through the fray. Raven consumes the remains of other creatures, giving this bird the additional symbolic value of cleansing. Perhaps there is something old and unhealthy that you may need to purge? Raven is a great helpmate for that. Raven is also an excellent teacher, guide, and partner for magical studies and efforts.
Your ability to reverse your associations of death from something to fear to a recognition of a powerful rite of passage completing the circle of life, death, and rebirth is also part of Raven’s message. Raven helps us change our perspectives.
Raven’s variety of sizes and colors of feathers represent this bird’s connection to shifting consciousness in many cultures. Raven helps us discover power and wisdom lie in the dark, deep void within our subconscious and the Universe at large, often through the Third Eye Chakra. Consider: Raven’s iridescent color turns black to blue depending on the light. Raven can be an omen of the transformation underway, calling you to open your mind to the vast possibilities. Change, transformation, and the ability to “shape-shift” are likely when encountering a Raven. Step into the light!
Let this sage master “call” to the quarters of creation with your intention. Raven bears the epitaph, “master of time.” Procrastinators out there, get ready. If Raven wings his way into your awareness, you are about to get a lesson in using time wisely. You may be in the right space at the right moment, and Raven encourages you to embrace the opportunity with gratefulness. Effectively this animal spirit is one that presages a kind of rebirth or renewal when your life may have seemed stagnant.
What does a Raven symbolize in various cultures? The ancient Greeks trusted in Raven to carry messages from the Divine, notably Apollo. This means that while Raven spirit is tied closely to the night, it also has solar qualities. Working with Raven is a way of boosting your powers of observation and bringing anything that lingers in the shadows into a healthy light.
Ravens have a very distinctive voice and a vast vocabulary. They are among the smartest birds in nature, so don’t be surprised if you start finding that your communication skills improve.
Raven reminds us to stay true to our voice. You might feel a little nervous when Raven decides to speak to your life. That’s natural.
Remember, however, that Raven is a fierce protector sacred to Morrigan. Raven also was the totem of the Queen of the Fairies. One thing is for certain, with Raven around, your life will not want for mystical adventures and spiritual surprises.
