I found this fabulous information about the Raven
at Animal Totems.
Magic, Healing, Creation
If a raven totem has come into our life, magic is at play.
Raven activates the energy of magic and links it to our will and intention.
With this totem we can make great changes in our life;
the ability to take the unformed thought and make it a reality.
The Raven shows us how to go into the dark of our inner self and bring out the light of our true self; resolving inner conflicts which have long been buried.
This is the deepest power of healing we can possess.
