The Deer cannot be approached, once trusted they will approach. They will not be forced and do not like interference, patience and kindheartedness will bring the rewards of their friendship. This animal brings new beginnings and fresh perspectives, it is shy and does not enter your life without reason. This is maybe a time to settle and review what is happening rather then trying to forge on and make things happen. To be gentle and hold a steel resolution, to experience the feelings of the deer and to roam wildly touching the hearts and minds of all that you encounter is not a skill afforded to many.
The decision you made was correct, the outcome will depend on your gentleness. One of the lessons to be learned could be the problem faced can be handled without force or ego.

This beautiful spiritual creature will only appear when you are ready to follow, call her and she will come, When she knows you are ready she will let you follow her into the land of the Faerie, the unicorn and that of the elementals with the deer by your side these plains and many others await you.
The Deer and The White Hind call to us to explore the root of the cause rather then the surface and the effect of the cause. Obsessions should be looked at, it is easy to become fixated or pre-occupied with something or someone without realising. With the gentle co-ersion and subtle influence of this animal everyday life and other world life gently balance. Balance is another message atrophied to this wonderous animal, to be able to balance here and now with what lies beyond and to be able to identify when an assertive approach is of more benefit than a chameleons adaptive approach.
The white deer have been revered by many as sacred and a messenger sent from beyond these realms. This Doe is sometimes white, she appears as "The White Hind" to see the white hind is a very humbling experience. She will tell you how much good you have done, and how much good there is to be done. If she allows you to follow her she will reveal many secrets, without fear or expectation follow her into the forest, if Butterflies are around then be reassured that angels are close. The white Hind represents all things that are serene and sacred, the feminine and innocent ways of doing things. To follow such an animal or to be led by one will take you to a new beginning or a meeting with a new guide or divine being. The sacred white hind will always be waiting at the edge of the forest ready to take you into the other world, the beginning of your spiritual journeys.
