Lucky Symbol of the month THE RAVEN
Find healing strength with this month’s specially charged symbol from spiritual practitioner Babs Smith
‘IN NATIVE American Indian folklore, the raven is a powerful creature of magic, with shape-shifting properties, so it also represents transformation.
‘Wise natives believed that what the physical eye sees may not necessarily be the truth and so the raven would also be called upon for clarity and understanding,’ explains Babs.
‘Today, the symbol of the raven is recognised for its healing abilities, as well as being a keeper of secrets, with the power to help us recognise our own hidden thoughts that, at times in our lives, we may be unwilling to face.
‘To me though, the raven really represents freedom and breaking away from situations that may otherwise hold us back in our lives.
It also symbolises being brave and taking that all-important leap of faith.’
