The Wisdom of Deer

I met Deer on a trail in the woods, her young fawn walked by her side. She looked at me gently
and walked ahead pointing out certain plants to her young one. She did not speak, but smply
walked at a pace that was so very relaxed and that exuded such grace, humility and
kindness. I kept waiting for Deer to speak, but I realized that this was her medicine.
I felt such peace, it was a walking meditation. Each step seemed to be in stride with a larger
pulse....the heartbeat of the Earth. Deer looked at me and sensed I understood. She tapped
my third eye with her nose and I recalled being lovingly held by my mother as an infant.
I could feel that Deer was communicating that the Earth feels that way towards us and
that there is such power in grace, gentleness, compassion and vulnerability. I came back
to Deer and a large Buck jumped out from the trees. He snorted at me and stomped his front
hooves in a territorial display. “There is a difference between gentleness, compassion and
being walked all over,” he said. “Sometimes you must know when it is time to be strong in
yourself and stand your ground. Our male aspect can teach you this.” I looked at Doe and
she finally spoke. “And if I come to you it is to teach compassion, gentleness, how to walk
on our Mother with kindness, how to be vulnerable. We can both teach you
how to be agile through the sticker bushes of life and also how to listen, we Deer have
excellent hearing.”
