The Raven and the Frog


In Native American culture the Raven was called upon in ritual so that visions could be clarified. Native holy men understood that what the physical eye sees, is not necessarily the truth, and he would call upon the Raven for clarity in these matters. The Raven is also the keeper of secrets.

Due to the fascinating transitions the Frog goes through in its life, it is a symbol of metamorphosis. Furthermore, the Frog’s dual time spent on land and water represents duality of the soul.

The fox is thought by many ancient cultures to be a messenger between our world and spirit world.

    I am glad you didn't drink or wait around for that one hour to pass in order to buy alcohol. I remember those sudden insane urges...they can be a scary thing. The important thing is--you didn't drink and you don't have to. You came here and posted about your experience instead--which will help others see that maybe they too can do it--just not pick up a drink today. Your message is one of hope. Keep moving forward.

    I'm really glad too Felly-- I know what it's like to have those moments. They really come for me between 9:00 and 10:00 in the evenings.

    I'm proud of you for going home! I know it can be tough during those times. Think of what a blessing it was that the cashier told you about that law instead of bending the rules!

    You made a good decision girl-- now keep on keepin' on =)
