Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength. Saint Francis de Sales
Only the weak are cruel. Gentleness can only be expected from the strong. Leo Buscaglia
Gentle rain falls from the sky as tears from the angels as each one cries, mother doe stands still in the grass quietly waiting for the storms to pass. We wait ‘neath the leaves of high gentle oak tree, yes you and me, to walk down a gentle path, to make sure that love will last, as Southern lullabies sing in the gentle wind, the gods to look to care to send, the love we feel, we need, to be able to give and receive. – deborahmills – Southern lullabies © 2016
Gentle, quiet 2-point doe came to stand on my lawn this morning. As the dogs raged at the French doors, she stood in quiet strength, unafraid sensing that the door was her protection, her power. Thirty minutes passed as she stood firmly on her path, while Cherokee, the last of the mighty warriors, howled her irritation that this unknown daring to trespass in her yard. I watch for a bit to make sure she isn’t raiding my corn, tomatoes, but no, she passes through finally moving on toward the wooded area across the lane. As we watch her quiet standing still, we realize that time had no meaning to her. She knew that she would find her goal, her dream even if she stood still waiting for the storms, or dangers to pass. We learn this message in her message. Be still, and know that the Great Spirit has our path, our lives in hand. Stand firm, looking fear in the face, knowing that the doors of protection are in place when we believe in the dream.
Animal totems: Doe: Sister doe is one of gentleness. Yet her totem is one of learning to stand still, rather than running frantically willy nilly when needing to find the right way on the path. Yet her totem also reminds us that freezing in fear, is not the answer either , with a “deer in the headlights” attitude or actions.. Her medicine shares that speaking with gentle, quietness, acting with grace, is our key to success.
Lady Moon is waxing Crescent today. She will help draw positive energies toward us even though Mercury is still in retrograde. The 1st house of self is in Sagittarius today. The fall colors of red, orange, yellow are colors of brightness right before the winter cold. Use these colors to lift spirits in days of feeling lonely or cold.
I am off this am. I will be returning this evening a bit earlier than usual. Looking forward to sharing with each person. May the fairies dance around each of us today.love ya, Me, Cherokee, Frankiecapone,sugar, Apache, Apollo, T
