Deer Dreams and Spirit Totems

In my dreams recently a mule deer has come to visit. It lays next to my feet near the doorway of my home in the woods in my dream. At first I thought this animal was a dog in my dream, but discovered it was a deer. This deer has visited me twice in two nights in my dreams, which is why I have researched the meaning of this in my dreams.

Deers in dreams denote trickery, and to be cautious of those trying to hurt you, that the sacred feminine is apart of you, as well as a spiritual awakening.

If Deer has crossed your path;

It is often a sign not to be too hard on yourself. Still the voice of the self critic and treat yourself with gentleness and understanding, be yourself and continue along your path. Seek out your inner treasures and use them generously to help those around you. Trust that kindness and graciousness will be well received.

We are also reminded that we cannot push towards change in others, rather we gently nudge them in the right direction with love and understanding. Lead by doing and showing the way.

Deer is a messenger of serenity, can see between shadows and hear what isn’t being said.

Deer teaches us to maintain our innocence and gentlenessso we can share our open-heartedness with others.

If Deer is your Animal Totem;

You have the knowledge of how to use the power of gentleness to touch the hearts and minds of the wounded beings in your life. You have a propensity to see new innocence and freshness in life everywhere and you constantly feel the lure of new adventures. Often you have a link to the arts, especially poetry and music.

You are also a keen observer, able to see well in low light. You are also a very compassionate, gentle and loving person.

I have also done a medicine card reading with some friends some months ago, i kept getting Badger in my readings. This is the badger symbolism

If Badger has come strolling into your life:

When this animal comes into our lives it is a message for us to “walk our own path at our own pace.” Have faith in yourself and your own abilities. Know that you have all the right tools to take on whatever challenge faces you. Never mind what others may say.

It can also be a sign that it is time for us to come out of hiding. There is no need to stay out of the limelight any more. Let the world know you mean business!

Alternatively this animal can be letting us know that we need to stay grounded in the moment. Keeping your feet firmly planted on the ground will anchor you to what is important in your life.

When Badger is your Animal Totem:

If this animal is your personal totem then you know how to stay grounded in all circumstances. You are very territorial and unafraid of defending your boundaries. You are very much aware of all the things that are important in your life. You take the time to nurture those around you while making sure that you sustain your own needs. Determination and focus are easy for you as is self reliance. You are never out of touch or confused because you know how to stay anchored to what is important to you. You really don’t care what others think of you and have no hesitation in warding off personal attacks and invasions of your space.

I believe a lot about spirit totems, and other natural elements of mother nature, acting as symbols of life, messengers. At one point in my life I walked in a dream through the darkness with a white tiger, everything was black, we were not going into any specific destination, we just walked along a black sea of water with no stars, side by side.  This was right before my life took it’s dark turn.

If Tiger has stalked into your life;

Tiger is reminding you that persistence is what is necessary in order to attain your goals. Be patient, use tried and true methods, repeat them is necessary, use determination to get there. You will succeed – but only through patience.

Alternatively this big cat may be letting you know that you need to do some careful planning and maneuvering to get what you desire. If the task is unpleasant he is reminding your that you do have the strength and willpower to complete the task. Don’t waste your energy with guilty procrastination. Tackle the task at hand.

If Tiger is your Animal Totem;

You are a supremely confident individual that is fiercely persistent in attaining your goals. You are strong willed – and once you have made up your mind there is no changing it – however you do take the time to balance all possibilities before deciding. You enjoy quiet and solitude and are keenly observant of everything around you. You physically tend to move with lithe grace and sensuality. You enjoy being independent and rely on having a quiet place to retreat to if things get stressful. You tend to easily blend in or camouflage in social situations. Your natural charisma often draws many others to you.
