Raven Meaning and Messages

In general, Raven symbolism can often be difficult to discern. However, there are always subtle clues available to you. If Raven announces its presence in a loud and raucous way, he is acting as a messenger. In this case, you must speak up and express yourself. This spirit animal could also be letting you know that you are not listening to the information and guidance that is forthcoming from your guardians. In other words, make sure you listen carefully and if you must, speak up for yourself!

Also, the Raven totem is the keeper of synchronicity. He is a master of bending and folding time and space. Therefore, you are precisely at the right moment at the right time. When you see this corvid on the lamp posts and buildings watching you, know that all things are falling into place for you. Hence, make sure you pay close attention to the people you meet for the next few hours. The Raven symbolism may be there to help you on your journey, provide insight, knowledge, and guidance. There is also an element of reflection with Raven’s meaning. Consequently, this bird is reminding you that the people around you are reflecting at you the things you most have to learn about yourself.

Furthermore, like the Cow, whenever Raven’s meaning appears in your life, fantastic magic is imminent. The Raven symbolism also brings messages of transition, change, and healing because of its ability to cast light into the darkness. When this happens, make sure that you are well-grounded and have faith in your journey. This birds’ magic will guide you through.

Raven Totem, Raven Spirit Animal

Raven totem people, like the Hummingbird, are very playful and creative. You also find comfort in solitude and enjoy your own company. People with the Raven totem also seek stillness and quiet and often prefer it to the constant onslaught of chatter and noise in their daily lives. People with this totem are wise and will bring messages for others. As a result, the spirit world uses you as a bridge to the physical world to bring forth its directives. Hence, you have no fear of the dark or the underworld. You understand that there is a perfect balance between the light and the darkness.

Also, with this bird as your spirit animal, you can use time and synchronicity to your advantage. You merely have to think about being somewhere at a specific time, and somehow, someway you are. At the same time, you remove obstacles, precipitate events, inspire competence, motivate, and make all things possible.

Raven Dream Interpretation

There is usually a profound change of consciousness imminent when a Raven dream occupies your sleep. Hence the message of this dream is to make sure that you watch for the clues and guidance that will enable you to soar to new heights. Also, if this bird is still and silent and looking at you in your dream, he is invoking magic. When this happens, you should pay close attention to the surroundings and prominent colours of the vision for further clues.

If this black corvid is loudly calling at you, he is insisting that you take notice of your surroundings. There is something in your life that you are missing, or you have forgotten a valuable lesson learned. Therefore, it may be an excellent idea for you to do some meditation and introspection. A Raven dream in which the bird is flying playful upside-down loops is telling you to fasten your seatbelt because everything has gone into hyperdrive. Absolute magic is afoot, so make sure that you enjoy the ride.

If this large black bird is attacking you or dive-bombing you in your dream, it is letting you know that the direction you are heading is not really where you want to go with your life. You must step back and re-evaluate before making your next move.

There is usually a profound change of consciousness imminent when Raven dreams occupy your sleep. Keep your mind open to receive and discern all that arrives.

Occasionally a Raven symbolism dream can signify an impending death, which is usually signalled by feeding on carrion or preening of its feathers to show rebirth. Thus, a pure white bird in your Raven dream is a message from Spirit and indicates that you are now on your divine path of light and should keep up the great work.

  • I had a dream, but can only remember one part of it. The part I remember is a Giant black bird (a Raven?) flew down into my hands as I was doing something. I tried to get it to fly away, to get it off my hands, and finally it did. Does anyone know what this might mean? TIA

  • When conducting a distance healing I had a spirit raven watching. It had one yellow eye, one white eye. The other symbols with him were a river and a crescent mood (the actual moon on the night was full). I was late setting up the healing so I incorporated a slight temporal shift.
    Any ideas what the two coloured eyed raven means?

  • Any meaning to this real life raven sighting?

    I entered a building that had 4 ravens on the rooftop. Completely spaced apart except 2, 1 of the 2 was poledancing and the other was on guard. The one on guard swooped down after I reached the door, landing no where near me thankfully.

  • Can anyone interpret my dream for me? It was a very short part I remember vividly. I see the silhouette of a large dog with its back to me sitting and staring out into the twilight. I feel like this is my dog, even though my dog in real life is actually very small. Without a sound, a raven swoops down and lands on my dog's right shoulder and they both stare at the sky. And then I woke up with a gasp fully awake.

  • Okay, Im used to being told by friends and family that when they see a raven in their dreams they sense my presence, but my last vivid dream featured two ravens each with one eye sitting on top of a ledge on a clear sunny day.
    When I noticed they each had one eye they flew away and then the picture refocused like a television glitch and the two birds merged into one and i noticed it had 3 eyes though it looked like a glitch in a video.
    I wasn't sure how to interpret this as I'm used to being the raven in other people's lives.

  • i had a dream, in which i've just made a friend with a green parrot. i was stroking her head, when suddenly an insect (similar to bumble bee, but all black, not sure) flew into the room, so i run out with the parrot to protect us from being bitten. but then something in my mind i was thinking to not be afraid and observe, so i kept looking at the bumble bee and suddynly i saw a raven, with a green a ribbon. in the dream i felt it's a message that my guides are with me.

  • I had this dream where everything was black and white. I was in a house that is not mine, it was big like a mansion in the olden days.
    I heard screaming from my family in this large living room (or family room) and they were screening at a raven in the middle of the room. the raven was loud and it looked like if it was screening at them.
    so I walked to the door and the raven quietly followed me to the front of the house and the middle of the room floor, it flow.
    A couch blocked the door, and the windows were covered and sealed by the blinds.
    when the raven stayed in the middle of the floor, I thought that it was hungry, so I gave it food. when I went to the door, the raven tossed the food next to me so it did not hit me and I said something and I don't remember.
    then I turn around to see the revan, it had some items that an Indian would wear. like the neckless, the feathers on its head, and something on the beak that looks like if it a bone through the beak.
    then I continued to open the door. once I open the door, it flies out and it came back right after it left as a baby raven, well half the size it was in front of me. then I woke up.
    what does it mean?

    • It seems like since the raven represents transformation, your family might be screaming a the raven in your dream because they are afraid of some kind of major change in your life. The raven must be hidden and locked inside a room because it represents you hiding a need to change your life that you keep a secret from the rest of the world.

      The items provided by the raven, I'm honestly not sure of, but perhaps it simply means you need to get in touch with nature and supporting the environment like the dedication of an Indian. At least, that's what my gut says.

      When it left free, and left a baby raven back, it might be a sign that the end of an old life is not a destruction of your entire life, but the beginning of a new life to live instead.

  • On my way to the store this morning I drove past an old cemetery and there perched on an old headstone was a HUGE Raven. A couple hours later I’m back at the lake cabin we are staying at this weekend, I’m relaxing on the porch looking at the lake and I hear these strange sounds. They get louder as to demand my attention, I peek over the railing and on the grass looking up at me is a beautiful black w/blue irredescent

    • The raven in the old cemetery might be in relation to the symbolism of the Death card in Tarot, which don't worry, doesn't mean a literal death. It's just a metaphor pertaining to ending something major in your life, to make room for something bigger. Both the raven and the death card represent large amounts of change, which might mean that there might be a deeper hope coming through soon built from the ashes of what has fallen before you.

  • I recently had a dream where I was walking along and heard a noise behind me I turned around and saw Raven on the ground that look like it had a hurt wing I reached out with my right arm and told her that everything will be OK and it looked at me and looked away and then looked at me again and hopped on my arm that’s when I woke up, what could this mean?

    • Perhaps this represents the part of yourself that represents emotional intensity and charisma like the raven, but instead of showing that through as your unique self, that part of you is "injured" like the raven with the hurt wing. Here, you try to reassure that part of yourself, and in that dream, you slowly come to terms, at least a little, when it comes to those insecurities of yourself.

      You might be afraid to be different. Like the raven, to be different transforms other people to be able to be different as well. That's why it might feel so dangerous. To be who you are, does not just mean people copying you to be better, but also encourages the dangerous act of allowing people the inspiration to be who they are as well.

      You are not a masterpiece to be copied, but simply the messenger that allows people to guide themselves out of the labyrinth, rather than being the damsels/gentlemen in distress.

  • Wanted to share that I had a lot of practice with animal messengers, and I thought I was working closely with my guide for good. As it turned out, I was being tricked by a bad spirit. They use these seemingly fun and harmless ways to groom us, to get us on the hook like a molester hands out candy.

    I was a victim of a spiritual attack last year, and I just want to reiterate that Satan is actively working against those who love God. He used my love of God to trick me; when I was in prayer, he spoke my name in a voice that sounded like thunder. He made me think that God had spoken my name. He can imitate voices--even the voice you would expect from God. He imitated the voice of Jesus as well, claiming that he was Jesus. This led down a road of absolute terror, where he would make me feel all kinds of things in my body. I prayed the Lord's Prayer and simply stated, "Jesus will you help me?" This enabled Jesus to begin the process of extricating the devil from my life. When I prayed these words, I stopped feeling the terror. I believe he needs our invitation and permission to begin his process, and it is a process. Satan does not give up quickly--he disappears for awhile, and comes back when you least expect it. Just remember to ask Jesus for help. Also, go to a psychiatrist; they won't believe that you are hearing real voices, but the medicine they can prescribe will help. It won't erase the presence of bad spirits, but at least it will be a little easier to ignore them.

    • hi Beth, These spirits are souls who can be saved.

      Ravens seem to be constantly around me, I had a dream last night about a raven trying to deliver a message but the entity chased it away, then an elk appeared, and three cloaked people who were in a snow storm, I invited them into my warm grass land and provided each with a camp fire. They never interacted they were appreciative of being allowed to warm up. I had the thought they were my guardians. I was curious about the animal guide info and it brought me to your message. Thank you for posting this, I have asked Jesus to help me. I pray that you find peace soon.
