Raven Leaps Into a Golden Morning

Raven represents transformation. And what is transformation but a passing away and a quality of rebirth within ourselves? So much has shifted in this new world, marked by death and illness. And the question I am asking myself this morning is what wants to emerge? And how does my immunity to change preventing an unfurling – a leap from a branch into unknown and potentially healing territory?


Shedding what is already dead or dying is a necessary part of growth – a cause for celebration as we traverse into the unknown.
