This is definitely coming through in all kinds of ways, but finally for the past week I obsessively work on the concept for a deer- woman ritual dance: Bat Ha Ayala: (Daughter of the Deer).

Then Yesterday, on the new moon, I received a great gift on the mountain by my home ~ face to face I came to a beautiful wild deer. That moment as we stared into each others eyes, I felt her blessing, and a strong, ancient meeting of souls. And when after the meeting, she ran into the forest, leaping so high until she disappeared, my heart leapt with her and my eyes could not help but release some tears for the earth… Our meeting, so perfect for this moment…

The medicine of the deer ~ where soft meets strong. Where gentleness meets wild power…
