Raven medicine

Raven… black as pitch, mystical as the moon,
Speak to me of magic, I will fly with you soon.

Raven

Throughout time, Raven has carried the medicine of magic. This has been true in many cultures across the planet. It is sacred, in the medicine ways, to honor Raven as the bringer of magic.

Raven 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 form. The void is called the Great Mystery. Great Mystery existed before all other things came into being. Great Spirit lives inside the void and emerged from the Great Mystery. Raven is the messenger of the void.

Raven’s color is the color of the void – the black hole in space that holds all the energy of the creative source. In Native teachings the color black means many things, but it does not mean evil. Black can mean the seeking of answers, the void, or the road of the spiritual or nonphysical. The blue-black of Raven contains an iridescence that speaks of the magic of darkness, and a changeability of form and shape that brings an awakening in the process.

Raven guides the magic of healing and the change in consciousness that will bring about a new reality and dispel “dis-ease” or illness. Raven brings in the state of wellness from the Void of Great Mystery and the field of plenty.
