A few moments later, Ginger comes up expecting her regular pets & scratches. But when she sees the deer, she stops in her tracks. She's got a HUGE decision to make... But as always, with the heart of 1,000 golden retrievers, she charges toward them to scare them away. She's currently taking a WELL EARNED nap in the sun on our porch. ;)
As Ginger was sleeping, two more deer hopped into the yard, prancing off one right behind the other. And that's just Mazama. You think you've experienced something cool and it just continues. One night we were all eating dinner on the porch and these three bunnies were racing right in front of us, one behind the other, like they were being chased in a Tom & Jerry cartoon! In the woods right in front of us, then twenty feet away, then in the middle... back and forth, back and forth. One of the most surreal things I've ever seen!
Mazama is in Deer Migration Territory so we see them everywhere, almost every day.
I have friends that introduced me to spirit totems and I always find it fascinating. Deer represent unconditional love, gentleness, kindness, grace, expansion, childlike innocence, sensitivity, intuitiveness and magical ability to regenerate. They enter your life to help you walk the path of love with full consciousness and awareness, to know that love sometimes requires caring and protection, not only in how we love others, but also in how we love ourselves. The grace and gentleness characteristic of this spirit animal echo the qualities brought forth when living from the heart. When a Deer totem enters your world, they say a new innocence and freshness in about to be awakened. New adventures are just around the corner and there will be an opportunity to express the gentle love that will open new doors for you.
The beauty of these creatures alone is well worth the trip up the PCH but I'm most blessed to know that if these totems are true, which I choose to believe they are... I currently reside in 'Unconditional Love Migration Territory.' I love the idea that love just keeps migrating toward me. It can't be helped...
In this moment, that's a really beautiful and healing place to be, no? :)
Much unconditional love from the mountains...
