Darkness is the most abused context perhaps ever given to one word. So much negativity is projected onto this word darkness, a very natural part of our day.  Darkness and Light follow a pattern of more dark time in the winter and more light time in the summer with equal light and dark two times a year. Darkness makes up the highest percentage of the universe. Without Darkness we would burn up and our planetary home would burn up.

So why do we want to make Darkness evil and bad and daylight good?

There is a pattern of awake and productive “doing” associated with daylight but when we are done working (being productive) Darkness sets in and wham, it’s evil, bad, illegal. All kinds of bad things are supposed to happen in the dark. And yet most war happens during daylight hours but war is an accepted fire energy. My big question is; why is it that light and fire also have such a powerful place in religion, teaching that we must rise to the highest in the light?

Interestingly darkness is associated with female energy while sun/fire is associated with male energy. It makes it very difficult to bring these two energies into equality. Our society worships light, which pushes everyone into more fire energy, more doing. If we aren’t “doing” we feel worthless. And now we spend more time playing with our phones (light/fire) instead being in nature and enjoying the true essence of darkness.

Science still says it doesn’t know what darkness does but some years ago I had a very powerful spiritual experience of visiting the darkness of the universe. It was extremely peaceful. I was told it was the home of unmanifested potential, that energy/power available for creating. The child in the womb is created in darkness. Darkness opens doors for our (night) dreams to connect us to the larger planetary whole while we sleep in darkness.

Huge amounts of people turned out to watch the eclipse, the shadow on the land caused by the moon hiding the sun. Hopefully that means we will soon celebrate Darkness as an equal and necessary part of life and learn to use words that actually describe evil acts and negative emotions that take place as much in daylight hours as they do in darkness.

My novels Awakening Earth Chronicles are about healing this ancient habit of blaming darkness for everything.




So much of our lives are lived in the invisible realms. It happens but we cant see it. Shifting from one frequency to another is an invisible experience. Very few people speak of it, but we’ve all experienced getting stuck in a frequency. The one that comes to mind today has to to do with parents and grown children because I am about to visit my grown daughter, grandchildren and great grand children. If I shift into my old mother role (I was a strong mother) I will also trigger shifts in all of them.

We all develop many parts (frequencies) of our self, whatever we put a lot of time into, becomes a comfortable frequency. (or even uncomfortable) If one’s career demands they be a decision maker, it can be difficult to shift out of that frequency with a partner or ones children. If one’s career is caretaker, it may find it difficult to shift and so continue to take too much responsibility for partner, children or friends. Since it’s all invisible,  understanding how and when to shift and how  powerful it feels when  we learn this magic.

Remember walking in the door to your parents house and boom, you feel like a kid again? You shifted into that old child frequency and then your parent is triggered (or may have triggered you) to shift into their old parental role and the old relationship frequency pops up. It might be fun for a short time but then can become a power struggle

Parent and child are each a different frequency (and development) and the relationship between them is also a frequency. No matter how old we are when we  visit our parents, we tend to revisit that child frequency. It can be difficult, as an older parent, to not shift into that old relationship frequency and treat our grown child from that old frequency. Which is why  it is very important to consciously develop a new relationship that allows child and parent to feel more equal. Getting stuck in these old frequencies can be irritating for young people trying to live at home once they have left and developed a frequency of being on their own and equally frustrating for the parent who thought their child had grown up but is still acting like a child.  A new relationship frequency must be created or both will automatically revert back to what was developed and often feel irritated because they don’t know how it happened or how to escape it.

The first step is recognizing something just occurred and you feel different. We can become aware of where our energy sits in our body during whatever skill we are involved in. Am I in my head? My throat? My heart? My solar plexus? My tummy? My genitals? Out in space? Once I know where I  am in my body I can choose to move.

I will follow up next week with more ways to move. You can email me with any questions at isis.charest@gmail.com


Program Love

It feels as if we, as humans, are at a cross road. The road has dead ended and we can choose to go left or right. We can’t see very far either way as we sit trying to decide which way to turn.

One way leads into the past and the other the future. The past is where we have created the patterns of our life that pop up when ever making a decision. We often think we are moving forward and yet only faces or the countryside changes.  Our thinking, responding and reacting has us well programed.

In order to move towards the future we must update our programing. (just like we have to update our computers) The update I saw (in a dream) is choosing to retire (delete) our program called: Fear, who will survive and thrive, that  leads us toward fight or flight and competition. There are so many of us now that moving in this direction will be more dangerous than ever before.

The new program is called: Love, unity, equality and community, what I do and give to others is returned to me. The fullness of what we give and receive will change our relationship with all Life forms.

To delete the old program:  visualize a button connected to your belly button that says: Push here to delete Fear program, Push  that button with your pointer finger of right hand and breathe deeply until  you can not hold any more breath. Exhale all breath in one big  HA, release your hold on the button  and take 12 slow inhales and exhales. A flashing light will say : Are you sure you want to delete this program? YES  NO  Push button YES.  If you feel fearful of deleting you can redo this deleting process until you can push YES button.

To install new Love program: Visualize a large green button in center of your chest at heart level. A  flashing green sign appears and says:  to install LOVE  program. place  fingers from both hands on large green button (fingers pointing inward). Inhale deeply thru nose, exhale slowly thru mouth 12 times. A flashing message will appear saying : Love program installed.  (if you feel dubious you may reinstall until you feel the shift.) )

It works, Please share!
