Raven Totem Animal Helper Wisdom:
~ Sentinel and Protector
~ Ability to Find Light in the Darkness
Ravens are protectors and sentinels. With their nests built in the highest portion of the treetops, they keep watch over their territory. They steadfastly alert their family members and other animals of approaching intruders or danger; the ever watchful sentinel is always perched at the highest point. Raven's lookout skills do not end there! They are also the hunting partners of wolves, and are sometimes referred to as "wolf birds." They fly ahead and scout for prey, sending signals to the wolves of their finds. As a return favor, Raven is allowed a seat at the feast. Ravens and Wolves are both known to be very social animals and their special relationship is one of mutual aid and social kinship. When Raven comes to you as a messenger totem, he may be pointing out to you the importance of looking out for others in your social group. Those for whom Raven is your birth totem, he shares his medicine of protection and innate ability to work well with others for the common good, making you an excellent candidate for volunteering and/or advocacy work.

Totem Meditation & Journaling
To further explore how this Animal Totem Helper can guide you this week, do some Totem Animal Meditation! Simply call the animal to you "Sacred ____ Totem Animal Helper, I am now ready to receive your lessons, guidance and messages. What guidance or messages do you have for me today?"
Another meditation idea is to read the list of symbolism or totem wisdom for your Animal Totem Helper of the week and decide which symbolism resonates with you the most. When you decide, go into meditation with your animal and ask them. "What can you share with me regarding your symbolism of ______. How can I better understand how this applies to me?"
Any information that comes to you after you ask is valid, its not in your mind! Whether you see, hear or feel information or you just know what to write in your journal, that is perfectly acceptable! That is your message from spirit specifically for you! You may receive colors, letters, numbers, words, pictures or very detailed images. Any feelings that come to you emotions, body sensations - heat, tingling, etc. All things that come to you through your extrasensory system are intended as a message for you! I would suggest what info you receive, then looks up the symbolic meanings of what you receive from your animal; as this will bring even deeper meaning to how they are going to assist you this week!
