While feeling into the glyph for this sign, I wondered what the hand with thumb and fingers joined means. I feel it is related to the hand that picks up the healing tool for accomplishment. Deer are roaming animals. As they roam, they graze on vegetation that heals them.
They will find a plant that their instincts lead them to. Cattle are also roaming animals and in this country, they are so susceptible to diseases. They are herded here and do not have access to graze on the flora that will help to heal them.
Humans have lived under a herding regime too where they have been lured into concrete jungles called cities and disconnected from nature. Money has been the tool to heal and only those with it have had access to it, but most of it is unnatural.
For the life and wellbeing of our species and our planet, it is time to turn to nature’s ways and to be intuitive like deer, to honour the four directions where each foot puts its place on the surface of Pachamama. It is time to return to the ancient ways and the full capacity of our abilities that return to us in nature.
It is time to return to walking the beauty way with the grace and peace of the deer. These are the ways that our indigenous cultures have been seeking to preserve. Through all the genocide and violence, we still have the ways encoded within us. If we can still, watch and observe like the deer, we will know those ways again.
The ninth day of the Rainstorm trecena gives the energy of completing. The deer gives the energy of accomplishing. The Rainstorm gives the energy of catalysing the energy it takes within us to transform our ways. No time is the time of completing this great cycle.
Our unified conscious intention may create this way. Let’s intend the return to the beauty way, the honouring of the ancient ways and the freedom of living naturally, no longer bound by time. All is well in the sacred ways. Let’s intend to be it and live it, and so it is
