I had plans to write about something else, and then this came up. This message seemed timelier. I mean it happened so fast. On New Year’s Eve, it was dark, around 6:30pm, I was cruising along fine, then in a just a split second there was a flash of white & a thud, and I was like “what in the world? What was that???” Within another second or two, which seems like it was minutes, I realized it was a deer. (I don’t like to think that I hit a deer, instead I view it that a deer jumped in front of me and ran into my car, that makes me feel a tiny bit better). My first thought was about the deer, I mean if you know me at all and how much I love animals, I was wondering if that deer was okay. I turned around and slowly drove down the road looking to see if the deer was on the side of the road. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had seen the deer, but I just had to check. Nothing, no deer, hopefully it was okay and off in the woods.
It was one of those situations where I was totally looking ahead, in control, and this thing suddenly appeared faster than fast. I was freaked out and upset. I love deer. I love animals. Many people would be happy to cut down on the deer population around here and would forget about it. But not me. All I could think about was the deer, and I was wondering what this meant.
I believe that everything happens for a reason, so I started wondering what the reason was. It was Dec. 31st, the last day of the year, and I end it with this thud. I Googled what was the spiritual reason behind hitting a deer. What did this mean? What message was being sent to me? Why did this happen on this day? I see deer all time time, why did this one choose to run in front of my car and not someone else’s? And why on New Year’s Eve?
Of course, many people would just ignore it and move on, but I spent Thursday morning thinking about the reason. (And okay, another confession: I did my New Year’s Day run on the same road, again, looking for the deer, I felt if I had some sort of closure it would make me feel better. I did not see the deer in the woods, so I’m really hoping it just has a bad bruise and is off in the woods surviving just fine….).
I believe we can come to our own conclusions, believe what we want, think what we want. Spiritually there could be several different reasons for this. I’m reading, understanding and listening to those reasons. Eventually it will all make sense, but for now I’m just thinking about it and paying attention to the reasons this may have happened.
What about you? Do you think about why things happen? Are there hidden messages in certain events? I believe there are, we just have to be open to the messages being sent, we have to be conscious of these messages, and make changes accordingly.
And if you are wondering, as for my car, there is a large dent in the front left bumper and part of it was rubbing on my tire. It will have be repaired.
Happy New Year. Best wishes for a safe, conscious, happy, healthy & fun 2020.
