Contemplate Blue. Blue is the color of the ocean and the sky. Heaven and Earth. Blue contains depth as do the ocean and the sky. Blue is sincere. Blue is confident. Blue has been scientifically proven to have a positive effect on the mind. Blue is truth. Blue is peaceful. Blue is calming.
Feel Deer. Deer is a symbol of gentleness and compassion, reminding us not to be too hard on ourselves. Deer gently nudges us in the direction of light with love, kindness and understanding. With the grace and innocence of a child, deer can move quickly and be trusted to help find and heal one’s inner child and devoted critic. Deer invites us to rest in the silence, healing with the peace of nature. Deer asks you to give yourself permission to pause and renew, so you can tap into the magical treasures buried inside.
Blue Deer. My shamanic teacher’s teacher was a Huichol Marakame (shaman) and that resulted in one of my primary indigenious studies involving the ancient knowledge of the Huichol Indians. The Huichol people are a small indigenous tribe of approximately 15,000 people living in the high mountains and rugged terrain in the Sierra Madre Occidental of Mexico. Many consider them to be the last tribe in North America to have resisted acculturation and survived. For the Huichol Indians, The Blue Deer, or Kayumari, is the messenger deity (or God) that sang the world into being.
One of the requirements for training and initiation into the Huichol shamamic healing tradition is pilgrimage, as it provides a source for our healing work. Through pilgrimage, healers of this shamanic tradition ignite the healing process by removing blocks that interfere with a person’s connection or capacity to connect to Spirit. I’ve completed five years of pilgrimage to the Huichol lands to deepen my own healing work and enrich my connection to these ancient healing traditions. Someday, I’ll tell the story of receiving the Certificate of Certifiability.
