In photographing wildlife, I come to many revelations about myself. Today it was an encounter with a deer on my way to the beach to meditate. My first instinct is to grab the camera and take my photos.
Then I took time to just watch and look, I took it as an instant message to myself, and began my thought processes of what this might mean,as I proceeded to the beach. While in my meditation I explored the possibilities of what it meant to have a deer as a spirit animal.
The deer, I came upon was a young buck, developing his antlers. In my meditation I felt the animal come near me and I felt the gentle nudge, the nudge that you want someone to do something….. the deer representing the ability to get someone to do what you want them to, without a shove, just gentle love, a slight nudge. A deer is, as strong and agile as, they are gentle. People who would have the deer as a spirit animal would show strength with intuition, the ability to glide through life with ease and would be a keen observer to the things going on around them. I feel the antlers were a message of developing defense mechanisms that are needed in my life.
In my meditation I could feel the swift confidence of the young buck, move into your life it said to me. Grab it by the antlers and take off, go forward and use your intuition. I hope you take the time to reflect on nature and what it means to you in this life.
We are on this great planet with many souls, these animal souls are here to enrich our lives in many ways. Please take the time to reflect what they mean to you.
