in days long gone now there was this ritual called Ritual Of Raven that used to be done during the eve of Samhain. The raven was captured and then and fed almost nothing to shorten it loaves and consecrated water. this kind of diet was hold on even up to one week. it was important that the raven did not die during the diet.
in the eve of shamhain the raven was killed with ritual cut and drained it’s blood almost completely away. The blood was then added to a compound of earth, white lime, and sometimes woad as well to make two perfect colours Black and White.
The raven was cut almost whole- leaving only heart intact.
Raven was then stuffed with herbs and then left to altar surrounded with herbs and candles.
On the day of Samhain, the ritual of the raven begins when the moon reaches its zenith.
then the hedgewitch coated him self with white lime and earth and painting his body with black and white compound made himself to look like raven.
then the raven and its heart was burned. It was believed that the spirit of the raven was contained in the heart of the bird and when it was burned the spirit was released. The spirit of the bird was then inhaled and could allow the Hedgewitch to walk through the Veils.
this ritual is not to be used lightly and that for only hedgeworth witches has knowledge to do this i leave parts of the ritual of because of it’s dangers and do not take any responsibility of what happens if you try. good luck.
(for one with knowledge and heart)
