Ravens have pervaded spooky tales throughout time as harbingers of doom, however, these magnificent black birds are MUCH more than just omens of darkness. Ravens are associated with ancestral wisdom and ancient knowledge, representing prophecy, and the balance of light and darkness. In Norse mythology, the powerful king of the gods, Odin, was often depicted with two ravens perched upon his shoulders, whispering the news of the world into his ears.
The indigenous people of America’s Pacific Northwest have a strong relationship with this clever bird. Raven features in a number of creation stories and can be both trickster and hero. The Inuit tribes say it was Raven who first brought light into the world.
Medieval Christians paradoxically associated Ravens with both holy hermits and prophets, as well as "evil" witches. In Celtic and British lore Ravens & Crows appear again and again as protectors, familiars, and guides, and are associated with prophecy, magick, and second sight.
