Black Onyx Raven
“Ravens are harbingers of good luck and are considered messengers of the gods of the mortal world. In mythology, Odin, a Norse god, had two ravens that served as his ears and his eyes, telling him everything that had happened and everything that would happen in order for him to gain the wisdom needed to save the world. Raven is also found in Greek mythology in association with Apollo, the god of prophecy. Raven is a helpful totem when you need extra ears and eyes to know what’s going on in circumstances where you can’t quite see or hear for yourself.
When Raven flies into your life, you have the opportunity to glimpse potential future realities. Every thought you’ve had until now has created your current reality, and every thought you will have creates your future. With Raven as your ally, you can cultivate the gift of prophecy and use it to garner wisdom and benefit all beings.
Ravens are dedicated to the disposal of the dead. They are scavengers that pick at the decaying flesh of dead animals, keeping the environment clean from bacteria and fungi. Raven is an excellent ally if you are dealing with the deterioration or decline of some part of your life. Raven’s vibration can help you consciously release whatever is dead or dying within your mind and body before it has a chance to decay. When you learn Raven’s lesson, you liberate yourself and improve your health and well-being.”
“Black onyx is beneficial to establish a protective shield when offering spiritual counseling, tarot card readings, channeling, automatic writing, and any other modality that opens you up to psychic influences. The blue-green variety of this stone amplifies the telepathic connection with your own higher consciousness and helps you tap into the Akashic Records (the history of the cosmos) Use it when you intend to obtain messages from the angelic realm to open your intuitive ears. Historically, chalcedony was sacred to the goddess Diana.

This stone helps provide mental focus, grounding, and the ability to stay on task. Use black onyx to deflect negative thoughtforms, or mental energy.”
