First, I apologize for that clacking noise you hear. I had a sweater in my dryer which has big buttons on it and you are hearing the buttons hit as it dries. I did not “deer” leave the window to stop the dryer. I was afraid they would leave and this was so fascinating to watch.
I don’t know if they are male or female, do you? Mommy & Daddy, Parent & Child, Siblings??
I was sitting on my couch and I glanced out the window, I do this often to check on the birdies & squirrels, when a deer caught my eye. My mouth dropped, I grabbed my phone, went over to the chair by the other window and started recording. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. They were out there for 35 minutes….it just got too dark for the phone to capture a good picture. I really need to install a camera on the back of the house so I can have clearer images!! 😉
As always…here is what the deer symbolizes.
“The deer is linked to the arts, specifically poetry and music in ancient Celtic animal lore due to its graceful form. The Celts also believed that deer were associated with the fairie realm, and would lead troops of fairies – hundreds of them trailing behind them as the stag cut a path through the forest.
Both Celts and Native Americans observed the deer to be savvy when it came to finding the best herbs. These earth-bound peoples would follow the deer to prime herb patches – many of which proved to be highly beneficial in their medicinal purposes.
A quick-list of animal symbolism of the deer may offer a great deal of insight as you are working with the spirit of the deer in your life.
Summary of Symbolic Meanings for the Deer
How does this translate into our own life experience?
Just as the deer has an uncanny sense of where to find the green freshness earth provides, we can ask the deer within ourselves to seek out our inner treasures. In meditation or day dream, go on a spiritual hike with the deer. See yourself walking in the woods with the deer leading you into amazing depths within your soul. Each step you and the deer take will lead you deeper into your spiritual knowing, and to limitless treasure within.
The deer (particularly the doe, females) has the capacity for infinite generosity. Their heart rhythms pulse in soft waves of kindness. Match that graciousness by offering your trust to her. She will reward you by leading you to the most powerful spiritual medicine you can fathom.
In China the deer is a symbol of happiness and good fortune. Indeed, its name in Chinese is a homonym for the word abundance.
Meaning of the deer is associated with: The Dawn, The Moon and the direction of the East. If you want to invoke the symbolic meaning of the deer you may have most success and profound experiences while incorporating these associations.
For example, we can honor the deer during a full moon to enhance or draw out some of deer qualities (listed above) within ourselves.
Likewise, honoring the deer with our attention pointed in an eastern direction at dawn will elicit responsive energy too. Nothing fancy (the deer really has no use for pomp and circumsance – her pleasure comes from quiet simplicities) just a solemn nod of your head and a simple “thank you” for deer presence will do.”
Poetry and music, well now that certainly speaks to me, as do fairies. I love the idea of seeking my inner treasures. Have you seen any deer lately?
