Last night I fell asleep with, and this morning I woke up to, dazzling images* from assorted wild scenes.  Then, returning to the regular rotation around our card altar, this messenger arrives, delivering the same feeling.

*One particularly vivid view was of a gorgeous lemon tree on a hill, with groves of other citrus all around.  So fragrant and uplifting!

             The Universe says, the truth here is about the exquisite majesty of Nature, and all within; how very fortunate we are to experience Her realm.

             Today, we dwell among both

flower and fruit.

             Because our purpose is embedded into the cycles of our life, and the seasons of our journey.  We travel through woods and plains and deserts.  We move with the tides and migrations.

             We are part of Nature.  It’s a piece of who each one of us is.  As urban as many of us get, it’s still within our very core.

             Accepting and honouring this, helps us to stay in-tune with our own personal rhythms.  And that is as healing as it gets.

hind druid animal card eilid

“Hind  ~  Eilid  (pronounced as Elij)  ~

Subtlety, Gracefulness, Femininity

The cards shows a white hind in the forest in late summer or early fall.  Acorns hang heavy from the oaks.  The hind calls us to follow her deeper into the forest.  

Standing in the sunlight, she appears so elusive we are not even sure if she is of this world.

Eilid brings us the gentleness and grace of the feminine principle.  Whether you are male or female, opening to the qualities of the hind will enable you to achieve a greater degree of sophistication, subtlety, and elegance – in the best possible senses of these terms.

Deer, and the white hind in particular, call to us from the Otherworld, from the realm of Faery, and invite us to look beyond the material, beyond the superficialites of life, toward the heart of things, toward the realm of causes rather than effects.

Poised in the moon- or sunlight, Eilid invites us to begin an exploration of the Otherworld, of the spiritual dimensions of life.”

  1. “Because our purpose is embedded into the cycles of our life, and the seasons of our journey. We travel through woods and plains and deserts. We move with the tides and migrations.” Like this.
