  1. Wow. I had a dream about an injured deer the other night. I assumed she had been hit by a car because she was on the side of the road. I looked up the meaning on this site and it couldn’t have rung more true!!! Our universe and our subconscious are amazing in the ways they communicate with us!!!!


  2. I dreamed of a two headed pure white fawn that was so young, I had to completely care for it. There was a tornado, and a lot of destruction around me but the fawn stayed with me the whole time. Oddly, nothing remotely bad happened to me the whole time and actually had great things begin to happen to me before I woke up. It was a wonderful dream ( I saved two people from having any harm done to them from the tornado and no one really was hurt from it). I wonder what this means?

  3. I had a dream about hundreds of deers sleeping! The deers were all lying on there sides but the were in rows ad there were also babies. They will wake up as me and my daughter will start passing them. None of them made a sound they just woke up and ran away!

  4. I had a dream where I was in an almost tiki-like room. I came out and saw this little dog with a collar running from its owner into a man made jungle. I went after the dog and carried her back but after giving her back, I saw a cat run into the jungle, so I went in and looked for it. It was really dark but I managed to find the cat since it had a whit neck. Once returning the cat, a terrified deer ran into the jungle. I went back in and looked behind some bushes, I found the dear laying on its side with a big rock on its legs. The deer looked terrified so I lifted the rock off and sat with her for a while. I pet her for awhile and calmed her down, I gently picked her up and was caring her back but on the way back, pictures came into my head, they were rosary peas. A voice said, ” It the berries, they’re poison!” And I stopped, I looked at the deer and then my alarm went off and I woke up.

  5. I had a dream that there was a war amongst an African American tribe. They took me to a big pond that they said was holy water. I washed it on my face and then made a cross on my forehead. I then fell to the ground having visions. The only one I remember was telling them I see a deer but it’s not a male or female. They seemed to know what that meant and didn’t want to go forward with the fight. In the end they all disappeared. Don’t see any explanation to that, but before all that happened I was walking through a haunted house.

  6. I had a dream last night, where I observed a huge herd of deer running through a field, does and bucks, the bucks had the most full racks of antlers I’ve ever seen. Then were running so majestically, then they starting running frantically and I saw them being chased by hunters. They were being chased by men with spears and large riffles and there was nothing I could do to help them. Anyone can to interpret this?

  7. I had a dream of unusual animals which are incredibly beautiful, and one of them is a pure white deer with beautiful big horns and I was afraid to see all those things, and all the animals came to me for hitting me but they didn’t hit and ran away.
