The raven is a sacred bird in many traditions The raven is a teacher of magic and like the hawk was one of the creatures who re-created the world after the flood. It is said that the raven stole the sun, a reference to his love of bright things, but he is also a messenger of Great Spirit. As a guardian of sacred laws his appearance was regarded as a sign of coming change, and so he is a bird of transformation bringing new challenges.  
Seed our Future
  ChiKi are proud members of the seed our future tribe. Our work at Chiki is continually frustrated by the current UK Cannabis Regulations, while we are advocates rather than activists it is clear that our current legislation needs to revisit cannabis not only as a medicine, but in its wider context. Please follow Seed our future on Facebook to keep up with developments The following information is shared by kind permission of our friends Trevor Coleman, Guy Coxhall, Steve Harrison, and Phil Monk.

We are seeing a global shift in attitude towards cannabis as the original rhetoric, based on ideology and  racism  is  superseded  by  science.  In  fact,  it  has  become  increasingly  apparent  that  not  only  is cannabis relatively safe, it is essential to our health, our environment and our economy; it has been realised that in our present situation where health deteriorates,the toxic fossil fuel resources to which we are addicted are fast running out, our climate and environment is facing catastrophic emergency and we now face the biggest economic collapse in history; cannabis is not only our saviour, it was the prohibition of  this  plant  which  led  to  these  atrocities  all  in  the  name  of  profit  for  shareholders  and power for the very few. We cannot, with any clear conscience, allow these crimes against humanity and the environment to continue and this is why ‘Seed our Future’ have implemented this strategy to compel, not only those with the power to make changes but to also inform the general public of the truth so we may unite as a collective consciousness to ensure our survival.
