Deer teaches us about:
~ The gifts of the deer include the ability to open to your intuition, and to pay more attention to your inner dialogue & how you perceive the world

~ Deer people have lots of energy
~ They have quick flexible minds

~ Deer are graceful and alert
~ They are sensitive, but it takes them time to open up to emotions that are more personal
~ Sometimes listening to others is a challenge and may interrupt frequently
~ Deer are clever, resourceful and creative
~ Deer people are enthusiastic and get others involved
~ The deer’s challenge is consistency in life and relationships
~ Help you walk in balance
~ Shows you your heart capacity for love, the nature of your heart

When we walk in balance we are connected to reality, the present moment. When out of balance we are in our personal history, living in the past or fantasizing about the future
Here’s a link to deerworlds.com which has a plethora of info on deer. The one area not covered is that deer are not only male & female but have a range of genders. Here’s a easy to understand article on the Missouri Dept. of Conservation website around this issue.
On Gabriola we have a huge amount of deer. I wonder if the deers energy contributes to the gentleness found here, and the large quantity of healing practitioners and modalities?
Just take a look at the Gabriola Healing Arts website, a smattering of what’s offered right here. Truly remarkable for a community of just over 4000 people.
Animal totems are numerous and varied, beliefs about how many we have and what they do, are just as varied. I present what I have been taught and experienced. Trance drum journeys are a way to find your animal totems, be it just one or many. I facilitate drum journeys. Should you be interested in doing one, contact me & we’ll set up an appointment for this magickal experience.
So what are Totem Animals and why would you even want one? Animal Totems are animal spirit allies, on your journey in this lifetime. They give you advice when asked for, and answer questions you have. They can support you when you’re scared, help empower you, clarify things, show you the next step in your healing journey, walk with you as a trusted companion and more. There are 9 Animal Totems, one in the centre and 8 around your Animal Totem Medicine Wheel. Are they real animal spirits? Well I don’t think it matters one iota if they are or aren’t, what you imagine you create. Whatever you believe and experience is your truth. It is the wisdom & knowledge you get from them that matters, not whether you believe that it’s an animal spirit or a part of your own psyche.
Mayan Daykeeper Men ~ The essence of Men, is fundamentally having the ability to envision, focus and manifest an abundant life in all aspects.
Men often manifests as a new idea or vision.
With this comes the ability to recognize a new goal or desire
and opportunities not apparent to others.
Men may visit you with a clear vision
of your potential for wealth and well-being.
On Men’s day, you can benefit by visualizing your true desires.
Be open to new ideas and unexpected insights.
Take the steps to advance your wealth and well-being.
Those born with Men as their Daykeeper
are natural producers and visionaries.
They can envision and bring together
the resources needed for the manifestation
of something larger than themselves,
something that involves the work and input of many people.

Your interpretation and experience is your own. I can only share my personal understanding, I invite you to find your own truths and their relevance in your life. This is really important. If something resonates great, if not chuck it out. We gain nothing by ‘taking on’ others life experiences and beliefs. The juice and healing comes from within your own understanding, it is pivotal for your healing journey and manifesting what you want.
