So, I just returned from Northern Alberta. It was a five-day vacation, mostly centred on hiking and exploring the natural beauty of the Canadian Rockies. There is a different energy to the nature and majesty of mountains and their surrounding environment. It is something almost palpable.
The energy and joy the mountains provide is not just something sensed by new-age sensitives but also by all humans. You feel better breathing the mountain air and taking in a general beauty through all the senses. The sights, sounds, smells, and wind on your skin add to the intense presence of nature in such beauteous environments.
Even after hours of hiking, the amount of fatigue felt in my body was less than expected for such a full day of physical activity. It was almost as though the environment itself was feeding me its energy. I know that comes across as strange and a bit woo-woo, but it is what I felt to be true.
The pristine lakes, the snow-capped mountains, the evergreen trees all in a row, and the fleeting glimpses of wildlife; are the sights and experiences of the Rocky Mountains that fill the senses, lighten the spirit, and bring a smile to one’s face.
Nature has the power to heal, revitalize, and empower oneself and one’s inner spirit. Get outside.
