I saw this image after I woke up from an intense dream. The dream was unrelated, but as I was recreating this image in real time, I realized it was linked to a memory of hiking in New Zealand. The forests there are quite magical and full of sprites and faeries. I was hiking along such a trail in the woods not far from the Franz Josef Glacier when I saw a creature that I could not describe. It was no ordinary deer, but a creature like that you might encounter on safari in Africa. It stood for several minutes on the path ahead of me. Grand, noble, and larger than any deer I had ever seen. The light was filtering down through its majestic twisted horns. I stood in my tracks and stared, hardly believing what I was seeing. It announced to me that it was the “Spirit of the Forest.” Then when I started to step towards it, it leapt into the brush and was gone.
May you find yourself aligned with the Spirit of the Forest the next time you have the pleasure of wandering in nature.
