The inky blackness gathers, still as a frozen pond, yet somehow moving like an angry thunderhead
The air hangs heavy, with a frigid dampness that penetrates through layer after layer after layer
A whisper, perhaps a whistle, quiet at first, then louder as the cold carries its echo for miles
The direction has given way to the darkness and perhaps the south is now north, or even west…
Yet there is no fear, despite the absence of light and the things we hold with familiar safety
Nay, these are the times of magic, when the darkness reveals the folds in time and corridors of space
This moment is exactly the place where the happening will begin, the physical crosses the spiritual
The barrier no longer holds purpose and containment ceases to be anything more than a word
Reflection, rebirth, repurpose, renewal, recycle, reduction, repopulation, recovery….
The making of a moment from the ashes of all the others, the messenger carries this upon a wing
Many fear at letting the consciousness of their existence slip from the light into the shadows
Yet to be one within, a soul must be temporarily surrendered to the tutelage of the raven
Find the comfort you seek, you carry it now yet it hides amongst the noise of today and tomorrow
Among the cool silence of the shade, seek refuge in the solitude and wisdom of the messenger
Learn to read the magic in the eyes, for there is something for all who seek its wonderment
The harsh croak is kept in reserve for those who become oblivious to events of amazement
Enrich yourself, feast on the magic, heal your injured soul, and prepare
For what you ask?
I think you know.
If a raven comes to visit you, then magic is imminent. Raven is about renewal, rebirth, repurposing, recovery, and reflection. If a raven comes to you in a dream, take it as an omen and watch for the clues on how you’ll soon have a change of consciousness. The calling of the raven should be a warning that something you are doing isn’t right or you are missing something important. A raven feeding on a carcass signifies impending death.
Keeper of secrets, mystics, bearers of magic, shrouded in mystery, that is the raven.
