Mullein, the plant totem teaches people to explore the smooth and healing parts of their nature.

Raven, the animal totem, will teach and give understanding to the relationship of groups. It is important that people with the Raven as a totem guard against being too indecisive.  Ravens are group oriented birds and it is believed that they have tribal councils.  To Native American people the raven is considered a bird of balance between man and nature.  Almost every tribe has a legend about Raven and why he is black.  Usually the bird began as a white bird but turned black either as a punishment for a wrongdoing or due to a danger it faced trying to help man.  Some believe the Raven to be an omen of bad luck while others believe it to be a good omen.

    My friend and I were recently talking about how we as human beings are so hooked onto electronics. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

    I don’t mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside… I just hope that as the price of memory decreases, the possibility of downloading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It’s a fantasy that I dream about almost every day.
