‘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.’
