Remarkable intelligence and the ability to speak have made crows and ravens symbols of an oracle. The fact that their vocalization, which was heard as sounding like "cras" supported this, as cras is the Latin word for tomorrow. Crows and ravens are considered to be signs and omens, and to be able to predict the future. Many cultures consider crows and ravens to be messengers and heralds of powerful secrets. Crows and ravens are symbols of wisdom and knowledge, and of connections with the deep mysteries of life and the universe.

Norse legend holds that Odin had two accompanying ravens, Hugin, who represents attaining knowledge and the power of thought, and Mugin, who represents the mind and the ability of the intuition to eliminate the necessity of looking for information. For the Romans and Greeks, crows and ravens symbolized the sun and were associated with both Athena and Apollo, and represented light and wisdom, and again, the oracular characteristic of Apollo.

Native American, Nordic, and Celtic legends hold that the crow is tasked with carrying souls into the other side of life. The crow, a traveler between life and death, will convey messages as well as souls, to and from the afterlife. Egyptians chose crows as a symbol of faithfulness, devotion, and loyalty due to their tendency to be monogamous. Ancient Asian legend states the crow was said to be the father of the Asian race, leading it to be considered the parent of humankind.

Crows and ravens are considered to be cunning, helpful, clever, and magnanimous at different times. Native American Inuits believed the raven tricked a giant sea monster into submission, and to this day its body serves as the Alaskan mainland. Other Northern Native American tribes believed the raven flew out from the dark womb of the cosmos, and brought with it the light of the sun, the dawning of understanding, and so consider the raven to be a bringer of light, and a venerated bird of creation. North American Indian lore also shows the raven to be symbolic of change and transformation, as do many other cultural references to the raven. It has also come to be known as a trickster because of its association with change and transformation.

Shaman and medicine men called upon the raven in ritual to assist in bringing clarity to understanding visions, as these holy men knew that what one sees in the physical world is not always the truth of reality. The raven is considered to be an emissary of magic and a sign of messages from the spirit world and the universe. The raven is utilized for healing as well, particularly delivering healing over long distances.

Crows and ravens are considered to be keepers of secrets, and assist in learning answers to one's inner thoughts. Dr. Carl Jung considered the raven to symbolize the dark side of the psyche. The raven represents one's ability to become a whole individual, balancing and communicating with the two diverse aspects of one's nature. The raven can help expose the sensitive secrets one keeps hidden within, often with detrimental effects upon one's self, so one may resolve and release these, and so find understanding, acceptance, and realize a more complete state of harmony and health.

Obsidian is effective for removal of blockages and bringing courage to face and overcome fears. Black obsidian is commonly considered to be quite powerful and caution is recommended when using it. It is wise to be prepared for the speed of the transfer of energy and information. Conscious programming prior to use is one way to address this quality of black obsidian. One explanation for the excessive power of obsidian could be the elemental forces at work during its formation. Volcanic lava, Earth and Fire, join with Water to cool the material so quickly there is no time for crystallization.

Opal is considered to promote pleasant and joyous dreams. These dreams are supported by the conscious knowledge of, and unconditional acceptance of oneself with the understanding that, as one is a flawless expression of universal love, no changes are necessary or required. Opal also assists one to create joyful and welcome adjustments in one's life based on that which one desires.

A particular use of the energy of opal is to redirect the attention of others away from the user, should one wish to go unnoticed. With an intentional management of the energy of opal, it is possible to become inconspicuous, and, using the same concept and method, it is also possible to redirect the energy of opal to attract more attention to oneself.
