Raven Crow Medicine Totem: Black Magic Begins New Skies of Tomorrow

“Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary…”

Quoth the Raven: “Eat my shorts.

When Bart Simpson meets Edgar Allen Poe in a hipster speakeasy, bearded, weary with irony, washed down in Sunday evening Guinness Stouts circa-late 1990s, the hijinks leave you crying for Mommy as you later devolve into sick secret sex X-File fantasies of Mulder and Scully gangbanging little green men on a UFO trip around the sun.

(Your college memories toking it up to whiskey shots on the Joe Rogan podcast and laying the truth out blind.)

But when you encounter the Raven or Crow Medicine Totem in your own life, be ready for the magical mysticism of changing energy – that Magical Mystery of Shadow and cryptic evolution, when life hands you a hand grenade, a beer, and a roll of duct tape for the pure sick fun of it. Your life is about to get dark, but fear not: Change is coming. Brace yourself: You’re in for a wild ride as the Crow flies.

The Raven is known for its magical powers. Its iridescent shock of black symbolizes the dark void from which creation springs, the black humor of our minds, when sicko-meets-psycho at BatesAirbnb.com. In Native American tradition, the color of the Crow or Raven holds no negative connotations – it’s simply the void encompassing the mystery of life, the quest for answers, that dark part of the brain we don’t talk about in public but still speaks the truth like Katt Williams standup burning the MFer down.

Carl Jung associated the Raven with the archetype of Shadow, the dark corners of our psyche harboring the shade of mystery. By embracing this darkness, we explore the mysteries that encompass our inner selves, the hidden depths of our unconsciousness, the breath and being of the Soul itself. Open wide, say ah, and drink your Crow medicine potion of black magic BBQ hot sauce. The pain may burn – but baby, you need it.

Raven or Crow? Same Magic, Same Meaning – Different Shades of Badass

So are you called by the magical animal totem of the Raven or the Crow? Essentially, they are the same. There is no consistent distinction between Ravens and Crows – other than size. Nor is there a distinction between them metaphysically or spiritually. Both are agents of change, magic, or mystery. Both do the same thing — @#$% your shit up and duct tape it back together, good as new and ready to rumble.

Of course, as Edgar Allen Poe knew all too well, Ravens are simply badass. He didn’t name his famous poem after the Crow because Ravens make the vinyl gold. If you were going to name a hard core metal punk band, you’d choose the Raven – it sounds more hardcore, fit for a DIY tattoo with a dirty ballpoint pen when you cry like a baby your first night in prison. 

Raven Crow Medicine Totem: Darkness and the Shadow of Truth

When a Raven or Crow flies into your life, you are being called to answer your inner truth, to rediscover your sense of self from the darkness of consciousness. 

The Crow, a powerful symbol of mystery and transformation, often calls those who encounter it to explore the depths of their self-consciousness and psyche. Known as the keeper of sacred law, the Crow totem invites us to delve into the hidden aspects of ourselves, uncovering truths that lie beneath the surface. When the Crow makes its presence known, it serves as a reminder to trust in our intuition and embrace the shadow aspects of our being. This exploration can lead to profound personal growth, revealing the interconnectedness of our experiences and the deeper meanings behind them.

Embracing Crow medicine means embarking on a journey of introspection and self-discovery. It urges us to look beyond the physical world and tap into the spiritual realms where our true essence resides. The Crow encourages us to confront our fears and doubts, transforming them into wisdom and strength. By heeding the Crow’s call, we can unlock the mysteries of our subconscious mind, gaining insights that help us navigate our lives with clarity and purpose. This totem teaches us that within the darkness lies the potential for great light, and by exploring the depths of our psyche, we can achieve a greater understanding of ourselves and our place in the world.

Talking Crows – Intuition and the Open Sky of Tomorrow

The Raven or Crow comes from a place of darkness, but it’s crafty with a Bic lighter, a Roman candle, and a roll of duct tape for hire. The Raven is brilliant at turning stones and sticks into tools that it crafts to its advantage to break open nuts, seeds, and other nourishment sources. As a spiritual totem, the Raven or Crow is insightfully creative, witty with the dark knife of Truth. You can harness its energy and craft its black magic of spiritual laws to your advantage. It gives you the power to take unformed intuition and craft it to the promised destiny you desire.

The Raven provides keen insight to unveil the hidden meaning of things. It symbolizes death and rebirth – not a literal death, but a reformed, reborn, and reincarnated state of being. It can open new worlds, new portals, begin new possibilities from the darkness of tragedy, new dreams from the depths of the solaces of our minds.

In many Native American legends, Crows can talk. The presence of Ravens or Crows in your life is nature speaking to you and through you. Open your sacred intuition to what it has to say. You are beginning again, leaving the death of the old behind you. Spread your wings, call the cry of the Crow, and break into the horizon of possibility and all the potential it holds.

Every day, we become new, always. Don’t look back. The sky is tomorrow and it calls you into flight.
