Following the Signals: An Angel Message

At the lake this morning, a man out on a boat in the water pointed towards a lawn that had three life-size statues of deer. "One of them is real." He shouted, and kept pointing and motioning us forward . I thought he'd been out in the sun too long or was a jokester. No live deer were in sight, but Elliot and I walked further down the dirt road and caught a glimpse of the truth.  A white tailed deer veiled by a tree branch was nibbling on a vine.  What joy to see a deer for the  first time at the lake. Deer have been scarce in our area since last summer so this lone gentle juvenile seemed like an angel message. 

Deer symbolizes a gentle luring to new adventure. When a deer shows up, it is time to be gentle with yourself and others.  A new innocence and freshness is about to be awakened or born.  "When deer show up, there is an opportunity to express gentle love that will open new doors to adventure for you."

Another sign of a new innocence appeared in the afternoon on a walk around a different local lake.  From a distance, I spotted so many ducklings they looked like scattered fallen leaves on the ground. Happy peeps, I counted 15!   Proud mama marched her happy little flock toward the camera for a family portrait.

 All ducks have grace upon water.  They can help us to remember to handle our own emotions with greater grace and comfort in helping others move through their tangled emotions, too.  

Love and peace,

Rae Karen
