Reindeer Symbolism. . .     Reindeer are a very, very hardy member of the deer family, living in the extreme cold regions of the arctic.  Reindeer are the only animals who keep their antlers all year long, and the female Reindeer are the only deer that also have a gorgeous rack of antlers.   Reindeer are not quite as shy as the deer we are most familiar with.  Reindeer form relationships with people in the arctic, somewhat like horses and the Reindeer even pull snow sleighs ~ wouldn't you just love that... what a memory.

Reindeer Symbolism and Journeys of the Spirit

Reindeer is a powerful symbol of our spirit.  Reindeer take extraordinary treks each year in huge herds of thousands in their migrations.  Traversing the tundra battling the onslaught of the constant attack of fleas, they dig deep into their being to find the inner strength to move forward.  Reindeer knows the way to all that will sustain him and help him flourish.

These journeys represent life changing treks.  Reindeer has appeared in your life to challenge you to take a trek of a lifetime, to test your inner strength, to meet your true self and to come to the realization of what you are made of.  Just as the Reindeer face the pests on their journey, you too will face what has been disturbing you, and you will be faced with coming up with solutions to work through it.

Reindeer spirit animal presents the question;  "What are we willing to endure to find what we need to sustain us and make us whole"? 

Reindeer is the perfect symbol to keep with you as a talisman for overcoming adversity.  

There are many spiritual hikes that one can take that bring about life changing insights and transformation. Many of the spiritual hikes are with groups, but some extraordinarily brave souls venture on these journeys alone, to simply be with self and nature.  These hikes are meditative journeys as silence is encouraged so that one may be in touch with his or her own spirit.  Many people travel to Tibet to take these journeys of many days led by a guide.  In the US there are long distance trails that go from Mexico up to Canada such as the Pacific Crest Trail that runs through California, Oregon and Washington (2654 miles), and the Continental Divide Trail that goes through the Rocky Mountains (3100 miles).   On the east side of the US there is the Appalachian Trail that winds through 14 states (2186 miles).

Reindeer is the power animal to take with you if you are going on one of these spiritual sojourns.  Reindeer proves himself/herself to be the companion to take with you for the journey of a lifetime.

Most of us will never take on one of these massive long distance hikes, but imagine it in your mind, meditate on it as this is a way to create the same experience... what challenges do you face, what epiphanies come to you, how do you see yourself changed?  .... these are all scenarios that you can create in your mind for life changing experiences.

Reindeer is inviting you to go on a day hike in nature, as much as possible.  As these journeys will put you in touch with the spirit animal energies of the Reindeer, and help you come to know yourself and how to find real meaning and heart centered purpose in your life.


The Magical Legends of  Reindeer Symbolism

Beloved by all children from 2 to 102, from all around the globe, the Reindeer warm our hearts as visions of Santa Claus and his workshop fill our imagination with delight.  Reindeer symbolize the magic of Christmas, pulling Santa's sleigh and the enchanted ability to take flight and circle the world in an entire night on Christmas Eve... landing on the roofs of houses where Santa pops down the chimney in the wink of an eye, and then in a flash they are off to the next house.  This is want Reindeer are known best for.

For their magical flight, the Reindeer are adorned in beautiful bridles and wear bells that you can hear when you listen closely on Christmas Eve, all under the lead of Rudolph.   

I'm happy to share the two Christmas stories we all remember so fondly, exemplifying Reindeer Symbolism; Twas The Night Before Christmas, and the song Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer...  and the treasured movie; Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer


Reindeer knows the way... Just like Rudolph ;)
