Inspiration is everywhere. Nature is one of the easiest place to get your inspiration from.
A weekend not long ago, my husband and I went for a weekend getaway in Mont-Tremblant (which is about 1.5hr away from where we live). We fell in love with the place last summer and wanted to spend some time together without the kids (thank you Mom for looking after the girls).
We decided to try the ZipTrek together. It is about a total of 3km of zip-lining and trek inside the beautiful mountain. The day was supposed to be clear but we can’t trust the meteo. The fog was heavy and paired with some rain. I felt it all: the eternal question “am I crazy or what ??”, the adrenaline, the surrender, the Magic of being surrounded by nothing. The view was breath-taking. And as a beautiful gift, while walking from one line to the other, we were greeted by a Mama Deer and her two babies.
The Deer is one of my animal guide, so it made it extra special to cross them on our path.
I looked up again what this encounter could me in the path I am right now and found this (from “whatismyspiritanimal.com”):
Throughout the world Deer symbolizes tenderness tempered with strength. This allows Deer spirit to act even when obstacles challenge the path. Deer also comes as a playmate for our inner child reminding us of innocent times where the smallest flower provided a smile and excitement.
Let me tell you: when you are up high, it truly feels like you are IN the clouds, flying through them.
It was scary as Hell but so exhilarating at the same time. I took all the beautiful Fall colors in to be reminded that even though Nature is currently preparing to sleep for a while. It was a magical time of year. Dying to become anew.
For the first time, Mont-Tremblant had a light show in the mountain: Tonga Lumina. There is a whole story that we follow once up in the mountain. It was magical. My Virgo analysing mind was blown away by the amount of work this must have been to install everything in the middle of nowhere.
The story reminded me that we are part of a Whole, that we are truly One.
Nature and Earth do not owe us anything, we are borrowing them and throwing them away as if it was a due for us Humans. It makes my heart really sad and I decided to find local associations in which I could help.
After that weekend, I had stories to tell in my journals (both my diary and my art journal). Images that wanted to be created.
Going outside was what I needed to feel refreshed.
