and the messages they bring you

Raven

Something special is about to happen. Use gratitude to speed it's process
-Raven

If Raven comes to you:

If Raven has come visiting you it can mean any number of things. Most powerful of all is the synchronicity that Raven assures you is pending. He is a master of bending and folding time and space so that you are exactly in the right moment at the right time. As a messenger you are reminded that those around you are reflecting back at you the things you most have to learn about yourself.

Know that when Raven appears that magic is imminent. Raven is about rebirth, recovery, renewal  recycling and certainly reflection and healing. He signifies moving through transitions smoothly by casting light into the darkness.

Raven as Your Totem

If Raven is your Totem animal you are very playful and creative. You have no fear of the dark, or the underworld and understand that there is a divine balance between the light and the dark. You find comfort in solitude and enjoy your own company. Raven seeks stillness and quiet, and prefer it to the constant onslaught of chatter and noise in our daily lives. You are wise and often are used as a messenger for others.  The spirit world uses you as a bridge to the physical world to bring forth its messages.

Raven in Your Dreams;

When Raven comes flying in your dreams he is letting you know that a change of consciousness is imminent. This omen signals you to watch for the clues and that new heights are possible. When Raven is still and silent looking at you he is invoking magic. Raven’s loudly raucous calling at you he is insistent that you take heed – you are missing something important or have forgotten a lesson learned. A Raven flying loops and upside down playfully is telling you to fasten your seat belt because everything has gone into hyper drive. Absolute magic is afoot.

Occasionally Raven can signify an impending death. This is usually signaled by feeding on carrion or preening of its feathers to show rebirth.

  • I dreamt that it was night time, I looked up to see 3 huge ravens. An out of proportion size wingspan flying above.
    One flew down to me, I was lying in a puddle in the street, it became normal in it’s size and it huddled into me as if it was afraid. I pulled it into me telling it that it was ok while it looked so sad and lost.
    What does this mean ?

    • Hi Lisa: First of all the number three is a symbol of help arriving – and in your case ‘in a big way”. The water although not a large amount is a symbol of your emotions and the fact that you were lying in it reflects that you are holding onto something emotionally that you need to let go of. The Ravens’ sad and lost expression are symbolic of the same. The overall message would be to allow yourself to feel your emotions, they may surprise you with what comes up.

  • :???: Woke up feeling weird I dream I was at my old grandma house full of crows was there they than start flying all around attacking me but not touching till I grab a blanket and made them disappear and catch some of them than woke up ,I’m now feeling different today :twisted:

    • Hi Jean: Crows are all about the Law of attraction. I would say that you have made a huge shift in your own personal growth and the Crows are letting you know this.

  • :?:

    I have been surrounded by crows/ravens most of my life. Never thought that it meant anything. Then a little while back, took a test to see what my totem animal was and it said the raven/crow. Still (because I must be completely blind to all signs) I didn’t clue in. Then one day I was starting to wonder about it and read up on it. Like most people, I thought this meant something bad (death). As I had many crows visit me in the recent months, and considering learning of my aunt’s recent discovery of lung cancer around the same time, I got scared. One day I was sitting quietly in my living room, and a few crows flew by the window several times. I got up to go see, and there is a tiny roof ledge outside my window. This huge raven was just standing there quietly. I looked at it, it looked back at me, cocked its head sideways a few times and slowly walked away around the corner. I did not feel fear. I felt calmness. I read somewhere that the crow signifies “you help dying people transition between the two worlds”. Is this true? And is this why I have been present when 3 of my family members passed and took their last breath? It says here that it also means change and transition. I haven’t worked since February…but have been offered a position and waiting for clearance. I wonder if this means it’s coming. Too many things going on at the same time and confusing me as to what the message is!

    • Hi Josie: When crows show up in the way that you describe it usually means that what you have been trying to manifest in your life has come to fruition. The Raven is letting you know that you have the ability to change your reality simply by changing the way you think about it.
      Because both of these birds are also closely related to you by being your totem animals I would say that you have the ability to live an absolutely synchronistic life. This means that if you think you will meet someone, or need to see an opportunity, or even discover a truth – you will manifest this almost instantly and the answers will appear.

  • My mother passed away 3 days ago, and today two large ravens sat on a tree branch in mine and mothers favorite tree..What if anything does this signify?
    As a young girl, I remember my mother always rescuing injured black birds that she nurtured back to health then set them free, however I rarely see Ravens now so I’m curious if this is just a coincidence or does it mean something

    • Hi Joanne: The Ravens have come to let you know that something special is about to happen. Trust your instincts and follow through.

  • My daughter was scared by this dream about an hour ago (5am): she was sitting on the toilet in a stall and I was outside. A raven flew in and handed her the toilet paper (!), but it wouldn’t go away. In the dream I said to her “Be careful, they suck blood.” Then she woke up and called for me.

    My daughter’s first day of college is today. She is nervous. She has dyslexia and there are certain challenges regarding getting around as she gets disorientated. However, she is well prepared. She has worked hard for this opportunity.

    Is the dream a good sign? Thank you for your answer.

    • Hi Sophia: The dream is simply a reflection of her fears about not being able to set proper boundaries with others. She knows that she occasionally allows others to use her and wants to make sure that this does not happen in college. Tell her to stay focused on her dreams. This will help to fade all her fears.

  • For almost six months I’ve had the same dream plaguing me.

    It begins the same way every time: I’m flying, if one could call it that, I think it more of gliding, through the sky. It’s the breaking of dawn when I land on the near by bank of a barely moving river and I look into the water and I see myself, but not myself-self, but an almost bastardized version of myself. If I had to explain it I would say it looked like a harpy: my body is nude, but covered in feathers and my hands are talon-like, while under my arms are almost gaudy wings going from my wrist until my underarm.
    In the dream I pause, every time, and begin to cry until a sound across the river pulls my from my horrified reverie. When my eyes finally raise from my reflection to the other side, I see an abnormally large raven staring back at me. (Mind that the river is several meters across, if I had to guess.) We stare at each other fore several moments, before it calls out to me. I try to reply, but my voice won’t work, it feels as if my face is slowly pealing away and I can almost feel the bile rising from my gut, burning my throat. My talon-like hand raises to my face to try to find the explanation for the unpleasant feeling, but all I find is soft skin beneath my appendage.
    I seem to have no control of my emotions as they turn from bewilderment to almost anger: I don’t know what is going on and I hate not having control of a situation, my temper rises with ever breath I take. From my spot on the river bank I can see the dark bird preen and almost seem smug at my anger, this, of course, only makes the anger worse. I stand from where I was crouching and take a step into the water of the river.

    And then I always wake up.
    The dream is quite frankly freaking me out, as I’ve said before, I’ve had this one every time I sleep for nearly six months. I’ve tried to do my own research into it, but I’ve never been a particularly spiritual person, so I’ve had trouble understanding the majority of it.
    I hope you can help me!

    (Also, sorry if my grammar/spelling is off, English isn’t my first language. c: Thank you!)

    • Hi Maria: There is a lot of symbology in this dream – however your emotions are real. I believe that on an emotional level you are very unhappy with who you have become – or who you believe you have become in real life. In order to release yourself from this dream you will have to go deep inside yourself and discover those parts of yourself that you feel are unsatisfactory and require help or healing. The Raven is there to help you with your transformation. He is the shape shifter and knows that you can become whoever you choose to be – simply by loving each and every part of yourself. Look into your hidden emotions.
