Perhaps, Angela - You'd have to combine deer and giraffe characteristics but not full-size due to the smaller than "normal" size of your magical animal.
Excerpts from the deer and giraffe descriptions on this site
| Deer teaches us the power of gentleness, keen observation and sensitivity. Deer are in tune with nature and all it holds. They are sacred carriers of peace and show those with this totem how to open their hearts and love unconditionally. |
Their senses are acute and they see extremely well in low light, giving them the ability to understand the deeper symbolic meanings of things. They can hear a twig snap in the far distance. Anyone who has deer as a totem has hidden clairvoyant and clairaudient abilities. They can see between the shadows, detect subtle movements and hear what is not being said. Call on deer to help you develop these gifts.
Giraffes are highly attuned to danger thanks to their height, keen sense of smell and eyesight. With their heads towering high in the sky and their feet firmly planted on the ground they serve as links between the higher and lower worlds. Its flexible neck allows it see what's behind it, alongside it and in front of it. This gives the giraffe the ability to know the future and understand the past while walking in the present moment. It holds the teachings of clear sight and can be a powerful ally for those with this totem.
To the OP - thanks for sharing this story sdsmith. I wish we could always know the end result of actions we feel led to take but oftentimes it seems we must suffice with trust. Trust that our initial hearing was accurate. Trust that we took the right action. Trust that it results in any effect.
I'm curious what the earrings looked like?
