This was just right outside my window at home. We often see this mum with her two bambis.
I posted this image on my Instagram feed as well as on Facebook. And, I received some interesting comments and interpretations on what the presence of these beautiful animals right outside my window could represent. They varied from hope for the future or signs from elsewhere that things are okay.
What I found most interesting were some comments left about the concept of Spirit Animals. I was linked to here and here.
From both articles, I found these words to be comforting:
“When you have the deer as spirit animal, you are highly sensitive and have a strong intuition. By affinity with this animal, you have the power to deal with challenges with grace. You master the art of being both determined and gentle in your approach. The deer totem wisdom imparts those with a special connection with this animal with the ability to be vigilant, move quickly, and trust their instincts to get out the trickiest situations.”
“Deer teaches us to be gentle, to touch the hearts and minds of wounded beings who are in our lives. Don’t push people to change, rather gently nudge them in right direction, with the love that comes from deer. Love and accept people as they are. The balance of true power lays in love and compassion.
When a Deer totem enters your world, a new innocence and freshness in about to be awakened. New adventures are just around the corner and there will be an opportunity to express the gentle love that will open new doors for you.”
I guess I better get in touch with my inner Shaman. 😉

Oh, how charming and comforting. We sometimes forget that the world around us contains animals as well as people. We know know what we do to the animals; we don’t always know what the animals do to and for us.
Thanks for what you’ve shared!
