The spirit animal raven comes into our lives when we seek guidance from our higher powers. In fact, it is a symbol of wisdom, mystery, creativity, and intellect. It may also symbolize intimidation and mischief, being negative traits.
This animal never fails in getting attention, as it stands out from crowds by demanding everyone’s focus. But, this attention isn’t always desired.
Guidance from this spirit animal
Just like all the other birds, the raven is the symbol of the messenger that exists between the spiritual and physical worlds. Ravens particularly symbolize messages of warning or foreboding, and its stature suggests that there is something dangerous coming.
Because of this, the symbolism of ravens usually comes to people as they are entering hard times in their lives. The appearance of ravens is often called for because we find ourselves stuck on our journey. While searching and stagnating for our path forward, this bird will warn us of the necessity to find our true way and follow it.
The creative problem solving and intellect of the raven
The raven is crafty creature, one of those several species of birds which were observed to create and then use tools. In fact, it symbolically represents creative problem-solving and intelligence.
The problems which we all face on our journeys can be unpredictable and varied. There is not a blueprint for regular life, so even though there are certain skills we may learn in order to make our journey quite more successful, we will often be left to consider our wits to that we can get by.
When this spirit animal appears in our lives, our abilities to think literally will be strengthened. We should use this kind of creative intelligence in order to face our challenges and overcome sticky situations which could soon come on our way.
The mystery and natural wisdom of the raven
The aura of ravens is full of mystery while having it as spirit animal; it will bring that mystery out in us. Our raven will lend us a specific mystery. It will make us more introverted, usually in a contemplative way, and not a shy one.
We hide our emotions as hard as we can, as we don’t want to give a lot of ourselves away. In fact, the wisdom that the raven is going to bring us is going to help us in that regard. Although keeping certain things to ourselves is fine, it will take wisdom to realize if we do it for all the appropriate reasons.
Protecting ourselves by simply staying within ourselves will be an excellent plan – however, isolating ourselves emotionally is usually the result of being afraid of rejection, which means that we have to ensure that is not what we do.
Negative characteristics of ravens
The raven can also symbolize intimidation and mischief, two things we will be drawn to when our spirit animal, the raven, will gain power. Little mischief will be fine, only because if it brings joy into our lives instead of misery.
We may also take misconduct quite far, harming people with using it, or we may be quite more conscious and cautious about it, making everybody laugh. When it comes to intimidation, our presence and aura may be quite intimidating for others.
Ravens symbolize the facts that we may utilize this for something good, but we may also utilize it for something evil. We should examine how we use our presence, and if we could do more good in this world with it or not.
