Animal Spirit Guides Meanings: Deer Spirit Guide

Updated on December 4, 2013

Kitty has been communicating with her spirit guides for over a decade. She uses the lessons she's learned through them to write about them.


The Deer Spirit Guide

The deer is a magnificent animal for many reasons. Not only has the deer fed our ancestors on almost every continent, but they have also given us their knowledge of the land and of survival. Whether we choose to listen to that knowledge is ultimately up to us; however, the deer spirit guide is one to be honored and openly listened to.

Lately the deer spirit guide has been coming to me in my dreams...trying to make himself known. The deer spirit guide is sort of a quiet, gentle spirit guide; at least that has been my experience thus far with the deer spirit guide. In the first dream that I had of the deer spirit guide, I was in a store and I noticed a small golden deer statue. This is the first moment the deer spirit guide made itself known to me. The second dream consisted of the deer spirit guide swiftly running through fields and over hills.

The deer spirit guide will make itself known to you in the appropriate way. But what sort of knowledge does the deer spirit guide have to give us?

The deer spirit guide is swift and agile. The deer spirit guide is light on his feet and knows what it takes to survive. These are all qualities that we can learn from our deer spirit guides. Swiftness, agility, survival...these are somewhat of the more obvious qualities of a deer spirit guide. Are there deeper qualities and knowledge that we can take from the deer spirit guide? Yes. More spiritual lessons to learn from the deer spirit guide include fine-tuning our listening skills, or if we lack in listening skills just learning listening skills in general. Learning to sacrifice oneself for a greater cause or the common good of all. Gentleness is a quality that was demonstrated immediately in my first dream encounter with my deer spirit guide.

Gentleness is particularly a quality that I need to work on in my life at this point in time. It is a quality that the deer spirit guide possesses and has mastered, but I have yet to master. Though I'm a mother and a wife, I try to be as gentle as I can; however, I am not always the gentlest with my loved ones' feelings. This is something that I plan to work on with my deer spirit guide, as well as fine-tuning my listening skills.

What are you going to learn from your deer spirit guide? Has the deer spirit guide come to you in your dreams lately? Maybe you should open yourself up to the lessons of the deer spirit guide.

    Hello kitty :) The deer is one of my animal spirit guides. He came to me during meditation. He walked right to me as if to make sure I had no doubts about his purpose in being present, stayed with me briefly, and went on about his way. It was so clear and precise and comforting. That initial visit was just a meet and greet but now, I feel him with me often. They are such beautiful and majestic creatures. There is so much to learn from them. I'm working on patience and learning to trust and go with my gut from him, always a work in progress but I've come so far since his intrance into my life. I'm very thankful he is with me.

    Great Hub, blessings and balance to you always :)

    Very well done! My given spiritual name is Gentle Deer Lion Tamer, and your description is very accurate of the Deer animal totem/spirit guide. Keep up the excellent work!

    Thanks so much. The deer has been my patron animal spirit guide as of late. I dream of them and they appear to me in random places.

    Hi Kitty,

    Lovely hub. Just saw two deer run across the road near my home last night. Glad they didn't stop because I was running late to pick my husband up from the train station. Their shadows against the lights of the oncoming cars in the late opposite mine was so lovely. Blink, and they were gone.

    Voted this hub "Up" "Useful" and "Beautiful."

    I could also use a deer spirit guide. I'm in the doldrums, a bit, and the whole idea of a spirit guide lifts me out of them.
