  • This summer while digging for gemstones near Jeffrey City, Wyoming, with my partner, we came across a Pronghorn Antelope Buck, laying in the sun, dozing while sitting upright.
    My partner, is kind of a Dr. Doolittle himself. In the past, we have had wild pronghorn antelope sleep outside our truck at night. He even had a few walk up to him while he was smoking a cigarette and try to smell the tobacco smoke. But he has never himself tried to walk up to a wild antelope. He says they are fast and dangerous if frightened.
    I don’t know why I even did this….but something compelled me to do it. I looked out of the corner of my eye to my partner. He said softly, “He’s not afraid. Walk up to him slowly and see how close he’ll let you get to him before he takes off.”
    Knowing he was a wild and not tame animal, I began to walk towards him. I kept to his side so he could see me as I approached him, so he wouldn’t see me as a threat. He let me get within 5 feet of him before he rose to a standing position. He looked at me with his black/brown eyes and all I felt was peace. Then he began to graze on the dry grass, walking and grazing. And then he stopped after about 5 feet and looked back at me, then turned to walk again. He kept stopping and looking back at me. Then he turned and walked back towards me. I stood still, and kept my breathing slow trying to slow down my fast beating heart. I was thinking… what is going on? is this real?
    He stopped within 2 feet of me and kept looking at me. And then he turned and started walking away from me again. I followed him. Everywhere he walked, there was lots of apple green Wyoming Jade on the ground. The stone we had been hunting for. The stone we had been told was impossible to find.
    And in my mind, a voice was saying, “Follow the wisdom of the antelope”.
    And then he kept walking until I couldn’t see him anymore.

    The 2nd day we went rock hunting to that same spot. The antelope was waiting for me. I didn’t need any more rocks, for I had found enough to make jewelry out of, or sell.
    I walked up to him, again, staying off to the side where he could see me, not walking behind him to spook him.
    I stopped within about 10 feet. And looked at my feet. There was a broken horn from another pronghorn buck. It was pretty old and brittle. I looked at the old buck. He looked at me. I picked up the broken horn and started walking back towards my camp. I stopped to look back, and that old buck was still watching me.
    After about a week, we decided it was time to go on down the road.
    We hooked up the truck and trailer and headed back down the dirt road we’d come in on. There was about 30 Pronghorn antelope spread out in little herds along the road. It seemed like they were waiting for us. They stood still as we drove slowly past them. Some of them were almost in the road. They weren’t afraid. It’s like they were family and telling us to travel safe.
    I believe the Antelope is my spirit animal.
    I will never forget what I saw and felt.
    My partner says he won’t either.

  • Antelope is another pathfinder. Pathfinders often come into our lives to let us know that there is a place somewhere in our lives where we have lost our ways. Antelope speaks of decisiveness and speed of action, which requires to step out of our own heads, to stop thinking our way and start feeling our way. There is a way of thinking that goes beyond analysis and categorization, which can often slow our actions down and lead to indecision. There is a part of us, a part of our minds that is in touch with things that our rational literal minds cannot know. We cannot flow through life, we cannot be in the zone unless we are listening to that part of ourselves and allowing it to lead us to and through those places that we do not understand. We can be as swift as Antelope and our bodies can flow effortlessly if we just allow ourselves to trust in more than what we already know, what we can name or what we can analyze. This is more than just animal instinct. This is the place of spirit and inspiration, the place of truest creativity. Antelope calls for us to follow the path that brings us to that place. We will know it deeply within ourselves when we find it and we will not hesitate. We will flow swiftly and powerfully and with the joy that can only come from living fully within our own bodies and in the completeness of our world.

  • I made a meditation a week ago in it was my more-focused meditation. I call my spirit animal and for the first time I saw something: an antelope.
    However… I don’t feel that much connected to that animal.
    I read in another website that this animal teachs self-confidence and to avoid any self-destruction through emmotional vulnerability. To be honest, that is my biggest weakness.
    But still, it’s the first time that I actually know something about this animal. Also, I don’t have any favorite animal and those 3 that I like the most never had appearead to me in any meditation.
    ¿Any recommendation, or information about this?

  • Antelope speaks of decisiveness and speed of action. I’m very good at acting quickly and decisively in the more physical aspects of my life, when I’m training, when I was a fighter, in the woods. I trust my instinct and reflexes in these places. But in those places that require emotional courage or organization I am often too slow to act and make a decision. I these places I can too often procrastinate and avoid because I am not comfortable with those aspects of my life. Antelope would almost certainly speaking to me of being as decisive in those places and about working on my avoidance of action in those parts of my life. I will have to think deeply on a specific place today where I need to put into action Antelope’s message.

  • Antelope
    Not quite sure what to make of this sign today. Once again it does not feel like it is talking to me. It feels like it may be saying that it is time to stop equivocating, that it’s time to act. I sometimes do have issues with putting things off, but this feels like it is speaking to someone else, possibly to the same friend who the signs have been speaking to for the past few days, which may be why I cannot feel any specific connection to its meaning…

  • I was taking groceries out of my trunk last night and it was dark in my driveway when I suddenly was startled by something that ran past the left side of my car and seemed to be large. There was nothing physical there but yet I knew something on a spirit level had run by me. When I asked an intuitive friend she said she was getting Antelope. So I looked this up and I can see where this would fall into my life right now.

  • I dreammed of 3 kudus. Two females and one male. They were dead. However, i touched one female and she came to life. Somebody starting yelling at me, touch the other 2. I did and both the remaining female and male came to life. The three of them stayed together, looked at me and then left. What does that mean?

  • I was walking home from somewhere,suddenly an antelope start chasing me ,i run to my family home and the antelope was trying to face me,like someone he loved,i was shouting looking for help to kill the antelope ,before someone could run from outside to my family home,the antelope enter into my family home from the door and he didn’t come out of my family any more..the antelope was in my home before i wake up

      In your case this antelope is symbolic to your need to flee or retreat from a situation that’s showed or soon will. Its also a sign that your high ambitions are fulfilled only at the cost of a very high energy expenditure.
      When it ran into your family home that’s your (sanctuary) the accompanying feeling that it was trying to face you as if you were one that it loved says that this situation that is or will come is family related and will take a lot out of you in order for it to be confronted.
      Now the big question is why do you think you felt like you needed to kill this animal?
      This ties into the message that your subconscious wants to put an end to this situation before it effects the ones that are closest to you .(family)…
      Be careful to watch now your decisions regarding ending this situation does not strike others as such that you don’t care .
      I get the sense that this will revolve around your parents in one way or another but the most energy will be spent on another trying to make them at ease ,, perhaps sibling …

      All the best

  • I have known since I was a little girl that pronghorn was my totem. I could never explain why I was drawn to pronghorn, outdoors, on television, in pictures, and in research. Their uniqueness (no other animal in the world is like them), their coloration, their intelligence and behavior have all been mesmerizing to me. I often dream of pronghorn, am a doe pronghorn in dreams, or pronghorn appears to me throughout the day, sometimes literally in my back yard or cross the road on my way to work. Only after I see her or him, do I understand what the day holds for me. I love pronghorn!

  • Also alppi, if the fawn was colored, it might have symbolized you and a new beginning for you, the gazelle was probably trying to protect you as you grow!

  • I saw an antelope running and sheilding me in my dream. I also saw a baby antelope looked almost like a pup. Fawn colored in same dream. I dont understand the meaning

    • Hello alppi,
      I think the antelope is trying to tell you that it is there for you and is your Spirit animal. I had a dream similar to yours. I am going to summarize it though: in the dream, a young girl (about my age) was standing in front of me at quite a distance. She ordered a golden leopard (Who was standing beside her) to kill me. I was shocked and turned to run, but got the distant feeling that there was an even stronger presence near by and that I shouldn’t run away. Then something caught my eye; a huge black jaguar that had GLOWING purple eyes. she looked at me and time stopped, we had a strong connection with each other, and I knew she was mine. Then she snarled, time unfroze, and the leopard was running at me. Then suddenly the jaguar was upon the leopard and gracefully killed it with one bite at the neck. The girl gasped, and the jaguar roared in my face telling me to run, then I woke up. I named her “Isra” for she traveled at night to see me (can also be pronounced Israa). I saw her in other dreams too. -look up gazelle spirit animal this might help you compare it to yourself! -Hailey Prophet

  • I AM AMAZED …especially by one telling thing that i envisioned while grounding myself. I WOULD NEVER HAVE IMAGINED THE ANTELOPE. How very awe inspiring!
