This morning as I was taking out the garbage before going to work.. I met my neighbor in the driveway .. she was crouched down looking toward my backyard. Softly she spoke and said to me… there are two deer just over there. I glanced over and this is what I saw.
These two young deer starring right back at me.. watching and waiting to see what I would do. Always having my camera in hand, I slowly unzipped my camera bag… snapped a couple of shots and then very quietly and slowly made my way around the other side of the house hoping to get a closer look. So gentle they are. Something about them brings feels of peace and softness to my heart. So for today’s wise words I give you the Deer Totem:
Deer teaches us to use the power of gentleness to touch the hearts and minds of wounded beings who are in our lives.
Don’t push towards change in others, rather gently nudge them in right direction with the love that comes from a Deer totem.
When a Deer totem shows up in your life, a new innocence and freshness is about to be awakened. There is going to be a gentle lure of new adventures. There will be an opportunity to express the gentle love that will open new doors for you.
Deer folk carry the message of purity of purpose; of walking in the light to dispel shadows. They know the work that they must do, and go about that work with no fanfare and no need for personal glory or recognition.
There are no shadows about deer; no ulterior motives; no hidden agendas; no lies or misrepresentations, and it is not possible for deer to knowingly hurt anyone or anything.
Nothing can cause deer to change its path. There may be many who continually throw roadblocks in the way; deer steps over them or goes around them. Many give deer dozens of reasons why a thing won’t work, but it only listens politely and then continues on. Deer people know what they must do, and will not be turned from its mission.
