Why are Deer Spiritual: Introducing The Uni of Everyday Life Logo:

I don’t know where it came from, but I have always loved the Deer, whether it be a glimpse in the woods, an ornament with a candle or simply thinking about their spiritual nature and grace at Christmas.

Some animals are said to be spirit animals in that they can watch over you and influence how you act through affinity. This is often shown or described as a Totem: A spirit being, sacred object or symbol that can serve as an emblem… Hence, I give you the new logo for the Uni of Everyday Life!

Having researched the idea of the totem, it just had to be the Deer or Stag because they encompass everything you need to understand yourself, your current situation and the determination to change your life for the better. Here is why:

Deer are a Symbol of Gentleness and Heart Energy

With the Deer as a totem, you are able to bring gentleness and grace in every aspects of your life, even in the most challenging moments. By inspiration from the deer’s qualities, you can achieve ambitious goals and tackle difficult situations smoothly, with a touch of gentleness and grace.

The deer spirit animal will remind you to be gentle with yourself and others. The grace and gentleness characteristic of this spirit animal echo the qualities brought forth when living from the heart. For example, the traditional symbol used for the heart chakra has the deer (sometimes also represented as an antelope) as emblematic animal of the energy of love and harmony with oneself and others.

Power, Grace & Determination

The horns of the Deer are a great means of defending and asserting yourself. Being gentle does not mean you are defenceless. With the deer as a power animal on your side, you can be strongly determined and gentle at the same time.

Wisdom and Innocence

Another quality that the Deer spirit animal brings is feeling a sense of your own inner gentleness, a clear connection with the innocence of your inner child. The spirit of the deer reveals to you a fresh perspective on old issues. Furthermore, it takes advantage of this opportunity to revise and reverse patterns of thoughts of behaviour that no longer serve you.

A Symbol of Regeneration of Life and Heart Energy

Once the deer’s antlers fall off, they begin to grow back. Because of this characteristic, the Deer has been revered in many traditions as a symbol of life regeneration. There is a cloud of mystery around this ability that gives the deer a magical and mystical quality. If you have the deer as your totem, you could tap into life’s magical ability to renew itself.

The Deer Spirit and Vigilance

Having the Deer as your animal totem means you may be inclined to be constantly on the move, being on the look-out for the next opportunity. By affinity with this spirit animal, you may also be watchful of your ‘Predators’, which translate into a tendency to be sometimes overly cautious. It takes time for you to trust someone or feel safe in your environment, particularly after major changes.

You can invoke the power of the deer to guide you in getting accustomed to new surroundings and people. This spirit guide might show up in your life to encourage you to trust your instinct. The Deer spirit animal will also show up in your life to encourage you to take some time by yourself in a quiet environment to rest or in nature. It invites you to find rest and peace in silence.

Think about these Qualities and the Affinity with You and Your Goals?

Obviously, I do not expect that by reading this we should all get ‘Spiritual’ and begin to worship the Deer in way that is, well, just weird! But, by using this information as an analogy to yourself, past, present and future, there is no denying that these qualities are indeed those very same qualities that can, and will, be at the forefront of changing your life for the better.

Always a school day at the Uni of everyday Life!

Other ‘Deer’ Information:

Fun Fact:

White stags are often described in myths and folklore but they also exist in real life! A white stag occurs when a deer has a condition called leucism, which causes the hair and skin to lose its natural colour.

Dreaming About a Deer:

Among other things the deer symbolizes sensitivity and intuition. Therefore when deer shows up in your dreams, it may be asking you to pay attention to your intuition. Is there a predator stalking you? You may need to be careful and plan your escape route.

If you are chasing a deer in your dreams, it may mean that you are conquering your fears. If you are the deer being chased, it may mean that you are running from your fears.

A deer in your dream can also represent a person you know who exhibits the traits of the deer such as gentleness, timidity and vulnerability.

In addition, as a prey animal the deer often makes the ultimate sacrifice. Are you sacrificing yourself for something? Is that sacrifice necessary? The deer may be asking you to take a good look and see if the sacrifice is really needed.
