Deer Wisdom and the Reiki Precepts
For today only, be compassionate to yourself and others.
Deer are definitely trying to give me a message. We saw four deer grazing on the side of the road in Monterey. A couple of weeks later, two bucks and a doe who crossed our path just a few feet away on an early morning walk (see video below). Then I received a call from a client about a wild deer that had gone missing in South Dakota.
All animals have mystical messages and wisdom that give us insight into our lives and our relationship with Nature. An Animal Spirit Guide is a spiritual being that guides and protects us on our spiritual path. Every Animal Spirit Guide has their unique guidance and inspiration.
Deer wisdom is about being kind, gentle, compassionate, and loving to oneself and others. Deer guides us to choose kindness, unconditional love, and peace. Deer wisdom is in alignment with the heart chakra along with the Reiki precept, "For today only, be compassionate to yourself and others."
The Reiki principles or precepts bring our awareness to the present moment and help us practice gratitude and compassion. The Reiki precepts are valuable guides to our spiritual development and healing. Connecting with them daily is a beautiful way to support balanced and rightful living.
Learning about Animal Spirit Guides teaches us about improving our connection with our true nature and authentic selves. When we stop to listen and understand animals' messages, it can bring personal power, strength, along with mutual understanding. By doing so, it heals our mind, body, and spirit.
