I saw a deer in the same marsh as heron, at the reservoir. Deer teaches us to use the power of gentleness to touch the hearts and minds of wounded beings who are trying to keep us from connecting with the Great Spirit. Like the dappling of fawn's coat, both the light and dark may be loved to create gentleness and safety for those who are seeking peace.
If deer has nudged it's way into your life, you are being asked to find the gentleness of spirit that heals all wounds. Stop pushing so hard to get others to change and love them as they are. Apply gentleness to your present situation and become like the summer breeze; warm and caring. This is the tool for solving the present dilemma you are facing. If you use it, you will connect with the sacred centering place inside yourself, and Great Spirit will guide you. Thanks Deer. Duly noted.
