Listening To Your Soul

 Paintings of a white stag around King Arthurs court

Legend has it that the white stag rules and protects it's forest, and all the animals who live within it.  Hunters who pursue the stag for trophy will find themselves disoriented, lost and face the risk of a fruitless hunting season.  For those who respect the forest and Mother Nature, their rewards are plenty and fruitful.

The stag has been a source of life, an important natural resource for early man who relied on hunting for survival. It symbolizes warmth and the renewal of life in the spring and seen as the true spirit of springing forward and upward, leading you onward to leap over difficulties.  Encouraging you to find new adventures in your active pursuit of living life to the fullest.

My newest work is about rejuvenation of the mind, the body and perhaps most importantly, the soul.  It's not an easy thing to do to stop in the midst of a hectic day and take the time to truly listen to what your soul is saying to you.  There isn't a second that your soul stops whispering, never loud and intrusive but always there, quietly waiting for the moment when you might have the time to listen.  
This pendant is a reminder of the most important part of us that is often neglected.  Just as the deer has an uncanny sense of where to find the green freshness Mother Earth provides, picture yourself walking in the forest with the stag leading you into the depths within your soul.  What you seek shall be found.

So make the time, step away from your busy life for a few minutes and let your heart whisper to you.  Listen well..I think you'll be pleasantly surprised to hear what it has to say.
