No Time To Sleep

Feeling like I’m in a bit of a trance
The visions are coming … they wanna dance

Skipping and hopping all through my head
As I lay .. tossing and turning in my bed

The air… soon to turn from warm to cold
I’ve got stories … yet to be told

More chapters to add to my book
I close my eyes for a peek.. a quick little look

What’s that whisper Spirit speaks in my ear
There’s still work to be done.. get ready my dear

Oh great, there’s lots more to do
Sorry, it’s a secret and I can’t yet tell you

Looks like I’ll be working beneath both the moon and the sun
I’ll be working til it all gets done

No time to rest
I have to do my very best

Staying on top of my game
Afterall .. Raventalker IS my name!

These visions that come in the night
They show me the way, the path thats right

Obstacles to overcome and hurdles to leap
They show me the way, while I sleep

Like the Autumn breeze
The visions dance through my head with ease

Here they come.. I’ve got to go
It’s time for a another late night show!

Many Blessings,

What makes you happy?

Are you happy? What makes you happy?

What makes you smile?

What makes your heart skip a beat?What is it that makes you glow from the inside out?

What makes you giggle from within?

Personally I’m not complicated.. its all the small things in life that make me happy…

My husbands touch, a breeze, the moon, fireflies, my daughters excitment over life, good friends, a job well done, completed projects, good food, a nice cold drink on a hot day, a warm cup of tea, sleeping in, staying up all night, cuddles, the dog, soft things, flowers, birds, seeing the deer in the field, willow trees, butterflies, kisses, hugs, sunsets, sunrises, dreams, visions, the warm spot in the bed, the cold side of the pillow, nature, fluffy clouds… the list could go on forever!!! Just thought I’d give you a bit of food for thought today …

Many Blessings,

Working it all out


You cannot rely solely on the counsel of others … you have to take part in making your own decisions and take responsibility for the choices you make.

Seeking wise counsel is not a bad thing …. and often times it can help you sort out the details of a situation and give you a new perspective on whatever it is you are facing … but …….

At the end of the day … it is YOU that has to work it out on your own..You have to take the steps needed to complete the task and make the final decisions .. and it is you that has to live with the choices you have made.

Many Blessings,

Today’s Blessing

As I stepped out my house this morning to make my way to work .. I was blessed by a gorgeous view of the full moon and then as I backed my car from the driveway I am yet again blessed.. this time by an equally gorgeous view of the sunrise… and I am thankful for the gifts Creator has given.

So here’s my blessing for you today….

May you always see the beauty that surrounds you each day..

May every sunrise warm your heart …

May the moonlighht always fill you with magic …

May you always know you are loved …

May your path be gentle …

May your lessons by quick…

May your worries by less….

May your love forever grow….

May your heart be full..

May your mind find some peace….

I send to you my love and blessings for a wonderful day

Many Blessings,

Today’s Feast

From The Cherokee Feast of Days – Volume II

August 24th

Never let another tell you what to think and what to do. Start now to think things through and get ready for what you want. You have to be prosperous in your thinking long before you see the money. Your health must have the support of your mind and words before it can keep its good condition. You have to be lovable before anyone can love you.

We think “instant” when it takes time. Remember the flower – first the bud and then the bloom, and all the steps in between. What do you want? See it now in your mind, and keep seeing it so clearly that it becomes a treasure map. Enjoy looking at it and stop questioning whether it is going to work. It is your map – give it your attention.

Many Blessings,




One of the biggest obstacles we are challenged with overcoming in life is trusting ourselves… trusting that inner voice .. and that gut instinct.

Although we will be overwhelmed with a particular feeling about a person, event, situation, etc .. we will question ourselves and question whether we are making the correct decision.. and quite often we will take the opposite of what we feel to be true.

We allow fearful thoughts to take over and push away that “knowing” we already possess.

I’m sure most of you can think back and find that those times you pushed away your instinct .. that ‘knowing” and took an alternate route .. and then found yourself quickly thinking .. DANG .. I SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO MYSELF!

I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN … lol becomes a common phase that runs through our minds ..

How do you begin to trust yourself.. that inner knowing inside?

Well, that’s the hard part … you have to just do it as each situation presents itself ..

You will have to determine which thoughts are just fear talking and which are that true inner knowing inside you.

Good luck and many blessings,

If I could share….

If I could share with you a bit of me I would ask you to take hold my hand and let go

Let go, not of my hand .. but of all else .. so that you can experience what’s inside me

Holding my hand you would know my pain and that I hurt just as you, when things go wrong

You would know my love and how its always growing

You would know my tears an what gets them flowing

You would know my passion and the roar of its fire

You would know my song without hearing it sung outloud

You would know my heart and what makes it melt

You would know my touch.. both gentle and strong

You would know my faith and the strength of my will

You would know me just by holding my hand and standing still

You would know my faults, my failures and my sad regrets

You would know me and all my secrets

You would know not just what you see but those things that don’t always show

You would know me … just by holding my hand and letting go.

Many Blessings,

Message From Spirit

Today Spirit guides me to ask this one question…

The steps you are taking …. are they taking you down the path that is yours or someone elses?

Do we follow our own hearts and dreams or do we follow that of others? …

We cannot make everyone happy but we can do what is needed to make ourselves happy …

By trying to live your life by the terms of another we do not live for ourselves and in the end neither will be happy..

For they will find that they were the only ones who could fulfill their own happiness and the same is said for each of us.

Many Blessings,

Things To Do

Today’s wisdom …..

Stop making those “To-Do Lists” and just DO!

Why sit and make a list of things to do … all you accomplish is a collection of lists .. get out and do those things instead!

You will feel so much more accomplished and full if instead of sitting at home making a list .. you actually got up and did the things you wish to do.

You already know what it is that you want to do .. do you really need a written list to remind you?

So come on … get up .. let’s go get something done today!!

Many Blessings,

The Rainbow

Ok with so much stuff about rainbows today I must .. yes I must blog about it …lol

So have you ever thought about what it is about rainbows that make people stop in their tracks and take notice…. how it makes them feel happy and warm inside and how no matter what is going on in your life.. when you see a rainbow .. you feel hope… have you ever wondered about that?

I bet you thought it was just the many colors in the rainbow and how beautiful it is that did all that…. I know for the longest I thought the very same thing .. it is a natural wonder and beautiful to boot ..

Then one day I asked .. I said silently to myself and the Creator .. What is it about the rainbow?

He said to me.. Silly girl, don’t you see.. it is the bridge to heaven.

And with that one whisper I understood .. enough said.

So if rainbows made you smile before… now you can smile inside and out brighter than before.. because you have the same knowing as I.

Many Blessings,

Positive Infection

That’s right “Infection” ….

Today I want to speak about spreading positivity …

Everyone seems to be able to spread the flu and other viruses so easily .. I thought .. ok lets see how far we can spread some positivity..

My challenge for everyone is for the next 30 days … as you go through your day and come across that one negative, nasty, bitter, angry person that everyone runs into .. do something or say something or maybe even just smile and if nothing else give them a silent blessing in a positive way in hopes to spead positivity.

Lets see how much we can change our own worlds by consciously setting out to spread positive thoughts and feelings to htose in need.

Don’t just spread them to the negative folks out there .. be sure and lend some extra to the already positive as well.. for there is never tooo much

Many Blessings,

The Dragonfly


Well yesterday I had someone ask me to do a painting of a dragonfly so I thought today’s wisdom would be about what this totems brings to ones life.

I have always loved dragonflies so this was an easy one to paint … and this summer I have seen dragonflies everywhere … more so than years past .. they seem to be all over the place for me this year.

Dragonfly Totem

When a dragonfly lands on you, you will hear excellent news from someone far away from home.

Dragonfly is the power of light. The dragonfly inhabits two realms: air and waterand the influence of both these elements will be felt by Dragonfly people. They will be emotional and passionate during their early years (the influence of water)and more balanced with greater mental clarity and control in as they mature (the influence of air).

Dragonfly is the essence of the winds of change, the messages of wisdom and enlightenment; and the communication from the elemental world. Dragonfly medicine beckons you to seek out the parts of your habits which need changing. Call on Dragonfly to guide you through the mists of illusion to the pathway of transformation. Dragonfly brings the light and color of transformation into your life.

Many Blessings,

IMG_5859 Today’s wisdom is inspired by a quote I came across.

“If you don’t have what’s someone else has, you’re Probably not doing what they are doing”

We cannot stand in envy all our lives of what others have .. instead we must make our own way … we must do the work that will get us whatever it is in life we seek.. financial freedom, loving relationships, steady employment, spiritual enlightenment or whatever it is that you are looking for. We cannot stand in wait … waiting for things to just happen.. we must take action.

In this fairytale you have to be the one with the wand and you have to get busy waving it like crazy to make the magic happen!

Just sayin…..

Many Blessings,

The Promise by Ha-gue-A-Dees-Sas

Today I would like to share with you a poem by Stan Hughes aka Ha-Gue-A-Dees-Sas, from his book Medicine Seeker

The Promise

My child.. This advice you must heed.
Please never take more than you need.

Promise to do these things I say,

I’ll care for you in every way.

In Spring… I’ll make the grasses grow.

I’ll sing to call the Buffalo.
As Summer walks the waking lands,

I’ll pull the Roots with my own hands.

Red Berries sweet will paint the Fall.
The Deer will answer to my call.

When Winter comes, it will be mild.

These things I promise you, My Child.

Choose NOT to honor my request

You’ll always wander in your quest.

Seeking, not finding your true home.

Lost nomads, empty and alone.


You see what Stan says in his poem is that it is not enough to say you are on the right path… but to actually walk the walk of that path. You must have honor not only for mankind but for the Earth and it’s entire contents and that incudes honor for yourself as well. With everything we do we must do it with love and honor and respect. It is not enough to just say what we believe .. we must live what we believe and we must do that every day .. not just for an hour or two on Sundays and maybe Wednesday nights for an hour.

Many Blessings,


When in Doubt

When one is in doubt of what their next move is along their path .. ask… and then open yourself up to hear the answers that are being given…

All you have to do is ask.. and the answers will come.. but you must quiet your mind.. quiet your worries, quiet your fears, quiet your stress, quiet all that occupies the mind.. like a whisper upon the wind you will hear the answer spoken … but you must be open to whatever message comes … Spirit will not guide you wrong … and this you must trust …

Many Blessings,


WP_20140530_040Today’s message from Spirit:

There are stories inside you … some you have lived .. some you have yet to live … if you can learn how to listen to the stories within yourself .. your path will become clear … you will know the way home.

Many Blessings,

Common Things

I was out in the yard taking photos of just random stuff …..

My daughter walked over to me and asked..”Mom, what are you doing?”

I said.. taking pictures of this …. she said.. thats JUST A WEED !

I said … but it’s a beautiful weed… she said.. you are so weird…

So today my wisdom is about finding that beauty in the common things that surround us everyday …

Many Blessings,

Being the Antenna

ravenwitchAs I was pondering what to post today for your daily dose of wisdom. I felt stuck… unsure of what to post about. And then in came to me. As soon as I let go of trying to force an idea or thought into my head… it was just there.

When trying to tune into the world around you, you must let go … don’t force it.

When we try to force ourselves into something, it rarely turns out the way we would imagine. No matter what it is, be it a thought, a project, a job, words of wisdom, or forcing yourself into “seeing” or “hearing” what normally goes unseen or unheard, it is best to let go of trying to force it and just allow it to come to you.

You must let down the walls and let go of trying so hard.  You are clogging the drain… Blocking the freeway… interrupting the signal. You have to clear the pipes and let it flow through you .. don’t try to hold on too strong or force it into being.

(keep in mind I am not speaking about what we do to manifest things into our lives .. that is a whole other blog… )

Think of yourself as an antenna … you must allow the current to flow through you to pick up the signals … antennas don’t hold on to the sound waves to send you the music … they just allow it to flow through them .

In the Darkness of the New Moon

In the Darkness of the New Moon

In the darkness of the New moon I fly about to see what there is to see…
There is no light and no shadows to chase me..

Flying about the void, this darkened space…
I let go my worries as the wind blows across my face..

My fears aside I look at starting something new…..
And as I look within, to myself I must stay true…..

Blessed be the tasks I begin this night …
May they be in bloom by the Moon’s next full light…

Fear not the darkness of the New Moon…
Tis the time for new beginnings and to get yourself back in tune..

As I fly away on the currents this night when the moon in new…
I begin my tasks and send out prayers and wishes of dreams coming true…

Blessing to every man, woman, child and friend….
May you find happiness, love and riches of the heart…..
And may your dreaming never ever end!


Looking for a Sign

This morning as I drove into work I was looking all over for my sign… the sign that Creator is watching over me .. that combination of numbers that when I see it … it is like the arms of heaven reaching down and giving me a great big hug … 444. So as I traveled all through the traffic .. making my way to work … I scanned all the license plates, signs, buildings and all that I passed hoping for the smallest glimpse of my numbers 444 … hoping for a hug to start my day.

Nearly at work I sat there at a traffic light … scanning all the plates around me and 444 just wasn’t there … I thought to myself.. please Creator.. I could use a hug to get the day started.. and as soon as the words were coming from my head … there it was … but not in the usual way 🙂 I suddenly noticed that every car that circled me (ok except for the ones behind me because obviously I could not see them LOL) had a 4 on the plate and some had a 4 somewhere on the car itself .. and I smiled .. and I thanked the Creator for the hug…

Message for today: You are not alone and your prayers do get answered.. not always the way we think they will … but they will.. and the Creator surrounds us with his love always .. we just have to open our eyes and see. To see the signs clearly in front of us we must be open to more than how we “expect” or “wish” them to be… and accept what is given with love.

Many Blessings,

Have You Heard?


Have You Heard …

Have you heard the whispers upon the wind ?
The story of the butterfly and its romance with the breeze…
How it glides on love with beauty and ease?

Have you heard the whispers from within?
The call that pulls and steers you along your path…

Have you heard the whispers from ancient times?
The voices that ring of truth and healing…
Have you heard the whispers … do you know that feeling?

Have you heard the whispers from distant places?
That knowing … that place inside you that keeps on growing?

Have you heard the whispers of the land?
Mother Earth speaking …
And with every chance… lending a helping hand?

Have you heard the whispers in the night?
The dreams.. the visions… that come from not from the eyes but some
other kind of sight?

Have yo heard the whispers the animals speak?
Guiding you along the way ..
Can you hear them and the messages they wish to relay?

Have you heard the whispers from the great beyond?
Words.. warm and full of support from the heavens above
Have you heard the whispers and felt the love?

Have you heard the whispers today?

Have you ?

Have you heard?

Many Blessings,

Learning about Self


Tonight I will speak about learning …..

Not just learning about the many variety of things in life but learning about self…..

Stepping back to watch … to clearly see yourself and how you behave and how you react to the situation in life.

How many times do we speak when we should have stayed quiet ?

How many times have we taken a leap when we should have stood still?

How many times did we think we saw something that just wasn’t there?

Oh there are so many ways that we learn about self… these are just a few ..

The key is to learn how to find that place in yourself where you can stop.. stand still for a moment and really look .. really see clearly .. so that we may not make that leap if it is not needed.. so that we may be able to keep our words quiet until they need to be heard .. and so that we may see things as they are and not how we think they are .. how fear would like us to see them or how we wish they were…

How do we do this? you may ask…. well……………….

Take a moment in your day to reflect on what you’ve done just that day … maybe earlier that morning .. or just minutes ago..

Reflect on your thoughts as you overheard a conversation and why you felt the way you did about the conversation or for that matter how you felt overhearing it instead of hearing it directly…

Reflect on how you answered the phone or drove your car …

Reflect on your own actions and feelings and not worry so much about those of others …

This is how we learn about ourselves.. finding out why we do or feel the things we do

Now that I’ve given you some food for thought … have a good night and sweet dreams

Many Blessings,

Wishful Thinking

WP_20140602_008Daily Wisdom by Raventalker 8-4-2010

Spirit whispers in my ear to send out a message today for all to be aware of wishful thinking .

I’m not speaking about the kind of “I wish I could win the lotto” kind of thinking.

I’m speaking about a way of thinking that turns things and situations into what you wish them to be … not what they are.

This happens often and most of us do this at some point in our lives … What Spirit asks is that you become aware of it.

Often, we see signs, it could be a word or phrase or even our lucky number or possibly even a certain animal that reminds us of something or someone particular.  Wishful thinking is when you push what you want onto that sign and make it be about what you want to happen instead of what the sign is really meant to be about.

We can want for something so badly that everything we see turns into a sign about that particular thing.  Later down the road when things don’t turn out as you thought or hoped for, you might say something like “but the signs….”

Well yes you were given signs …. But because of your “want” of something else you did not see what those signs were really for .. instead you made them out to be about what you wished them to be.

Spirit asks that you become more aware of doing this … he loves us all and wishes not for us to be left guessing at that point down the road.

Many Blessings,

The Dance of Life

Much has been said about life and music..

From all over you have heard words and phrases… comparing the two

Life is a dance …

One dances to the beat of his own drum…

Music is the poetry of the air…

If music be the food of love; play on…

So lets take that popular phrase “Life is a dance”

and if it is to be a dance … how do you place your feet?

What is the nature of your dance?

Do you stomp loud and boisterous through this life

or do you step gently and glide as if upon the wings of wind

Do you dance slow or fast ?

Do you swing across the floor of this life or hop ?

What is your dance?

What is the musical foundation of your dance?

It does not matter your style of dance so much as it matters the music within your soul.. and how you treat it.

Is it ignored or honored?

It’s your dance … your music .. your life

Live it well and dance with honor and love

Many Blessings,

Have You?

>sun, moon, raventalker

The Wind..
have you stepped outside and stood still just to feel the wind .. how it rushes by you and wraps its translucent arms around you .. have you allowed it to wipe clean all the negativity from your being .. and allowed it to take all that is not good away from you have you taken in the beauty of the wind and the freedom that it symbolizes. Have you?

The Rain
have you stood out in the rain lately and just allowed it to drench your soul.. let it wash over your body and wash away your worries.. your fears.. your sadness and your grief have you felt the rains watery embrace have you felt the beauty of the rain .. have you allowed the rain to fill you with love and nourishment have you taken in all that the rain symbolizes and gives .. have you?

The Sun
have you laid upon a bed of clover on a sunny day and allowed the suns rays to fill you with light.. from the inside out have you felt the suns warmth .. have you felt its warm embrace hold you and comfort you have you seen the beauty of the sun and all that it gives.. have you allowed the sun to help you grow like the flowers in the field .. the trees in the park and the roses in the garden .. have you?

The Moon
have you sat beneath the full moon and seen its beauty have you felt the magic .. the power the moon holds.. have you allowed the moon to embrace you and hold you within the dark night have you felt the moons love .. have you been witness to the many gifts the moon allows.. have you?

Have YOU?
Have you felt what the world around you gives? Do you know of the magic that surrounds us all? Have you listened to the world and have you heard the secrets the earth whispers in your ears .. ? Can you feel its energy? Do you know the love?

Even tho so ignored by most .. the Earth , she still gives.. she still loves..
many take and take and take .. and yet never even think of giving back or even to say thank you .. She has no breaks no vacations.. no pay and no acknowledgment .. but yet she continues to give.. continues to care and continues to take care of all the children that play upon her surface..

Today take a minute and think about what you do .. think about how you would feel if so mistreated and ignored

Just think about it ..

Many Blessings,

I am Raventalker


I am Raventalker.. keeper of the ways of old and ancient times.. hear my call as it echos through the distant chimes

I am Raventalker … blending with the night .. carrying with me a sacred kind of light

I am Raventalker .. perched upon a limb .. forever watching and recording life’s mysteries… come sit and listen as I tell my stories

I am Raventalker .. guardian of the mystic void..

I am Raventalker…. with words of rhyme I send to thee.. magick filled with love .. flying through the air or perched in a tree.

I am Raventalker.. with eyes of green I see beyond the veil.. into the many worlds that are and are not seen.

I am Raventalker … silent as the night when need be.. but often speaking of the ancient ways to anyone who wishes to learn and hear me.

I am Raventalker .. here my call.. I’ll speak of truth and knowledge … a wisdom from times gone by… listen.. for I am Raventalker now and forever til the day I die.

The Tiger


In honor of the Tiger that came to me in a ceremonial vision last night:

Passion, Power, Devotion

The Tiger is the symbol of darkness
and the new Moon.

When a Tiger totem enters your life,
expect new adventures.
It will awaken new passion and power.

Tiger people do their best work at night.
They are very sensual and passion people and devoted parents.
Your best work will be done at night.
Tigers are associated with water and have all the properties of the element of Water –
healing, power through gentle flow, feminine energies.

In China, there are 5 mystic tigers:
The red tiger is south, summer and fire,
the black tiger is the symbol of north, winter and water,
the blue tiger is east, spring and vegetation,
the white tiger is west, autumn and all metals,
the yellow tiger is ruler of the Earth and its energies.

Many Blessings,
