When Trees Talk

There was a time when I would not have admitted that I talked to trees OR that I could ask them questions and they would reply! I would have been considered crazy, in need of meds. Now I’m an Elder, a Crone and have reached that place of knowing that  our whole  society has been programmed to not trust Self. It’s better for capitalism. Once I realized that I gave myself  permission to delve into “trust me and my senses.”

It was just last summer and I had said hello to my favorite 2 trees every day for at least a year  but on this warm delightful morning, I mused, I wonder what your name is and immediately heard, Satcha. But it wasn’t just hearing her name, it was the huge energy that totally embraced me as I heard her name. My heart quickened and  expanded.  l heard and experienced a new frequency. I felt intensely loved.

I couldn’t ask the other tree her name that day because I was already over -awed. The next morning,  I decided, I would ask the other tree. But when I went out I couldn’t help saying “good morning Satcha” and was again embraced with her huge energy, my heart again expanded and I almost fell over.

It took several days until I could accommodate Satcha’s energy and was ready to ask the second tree her name. Part of me was a little scared, what if she was even more powerful? Or would she feel exactly the same even though she was a different variety of tree?

I said, “hello, what is your name?” I immediately heard Frizzel. Then I felt her energy, which was very different from Satcha’s. Frizzel’s energy was more like her airy looking treebody. It too was large and embracing and yet like hugging people, each Treehug is different.

Once I said hello, I learned that both had voices and both wanted to share. They both said people talk to them frequently but it was rare to have a person actually let them communicate. People talked they didn’t listen.

I learned that trees planted alone are bigger talkers. The trees planted as families are not lonely.

I’ve also learned that when it’s cold out I protect myself, my arms hold me closer, hugging my body and  I can’t feel them as much as I can when its warmer. I have given myself the delight of feeling many trees. The elder trees have much larger, stronger energy than the younger trees. It’s very sad how often older trees are cut down and replaced with smaller, younger trees. That brings to mind how older women are often replaced with younger women and Elder people are not much appreciated either.

Loving Trees

I have loved trees for a long time, but talking and listening to them is new.
This dream I had recently shook me deeply and awakened a need to go deeper into communicating with trees.

A dream woke me this morning, it was actually a foot tall sapling, a baby pine. Her roots were being touched and nourished by an Elder pine. She must be Elder because she’s very tall and sapling can feel her love. But then a few humans come along with a very noisy something and sapling hears Elder crying, then the ground shakes intensely as Elder falls, the tenuous connection of the two pulling away from Sapling and Sapling feels the huge loss of love from Elder plus the lost root connection and wonders if she can make it in this lonely human world.

I felt nauseous and very tearful.I decided I needed to do more to understand our relationship with trees. I wanted to talk to other people who also communicated with trees so I created a flyer and in my walk with my dog Sammy, I stopped at 15 homes with big elder trees and left a flier on their door asking them to call me to be interviewed for an article I was writing if they too communicated with the big Elder tree in their yard. I shared some of my beliefs and experiences.I didn’t ask the trees that day if the human in the house communicated.

So far no calls.

Today I walked by 9 of those trees on our walk again. I asked each tree, does any human in this house talk to you. I got more no’s than yeses. One of the larger trees said it was threatened to be cut down often because it made humans house too dark, Other trees said humans were angry if they had to pick up their branches or cones. Only one tree of the 9 felt loved even though they all have a very large presence of love that extends out many feet from their trunk.

Mostly trees said humans talk at them but don’t ask questions or expect a reply. I plan on visiting with more trees this week.

The Out Come

I have been trying to understand the 4 basic elements of soil, water, fire and air for some time. I think I’ve finally got it and am now onto the mystery of the 5th element. Perhaps you already know all this but if not it helps me to understand myself to write about it.

Soil (those tiny granules) is what creates and gives form, forms of all kinds! But soil needs some water to fill up that form and make it 3 dimensional. The amount of water depends on the form. Butterflies need more air than water. Fire is the electric charge that allows movement. Air creates Life. A baby (of any species) can be born looking perfect but if it can not take a breath it will mot survive. The first in breath begins life and the last out breath is the end of physical life as we know it. This is the physical realm. There are other frequencies of these 4 elements that affect our health, our thoughts, our emotions and all our creations.
All species have different amounts of each element. An elephant has more soil, a bird has more air, a fish has more water, and some of the fastest creatures have more fire.

The 5th element; the level of perfection in all things we could call the outcome, depends on the balance of these four elements. Too much of any element changes the balance, but too little also changes the balance in a different way.

We can look to Nature at a blackberry bush. If its a dry spring the berries will be seedy, if there is just the right amount of moisture and sunshine the berry will grow lush and juicy. If there is too much rain the berry will be mushy. The plant can not control how its berries turn out just as it is difficult for us to understand how outer circumstances and the choices we make can change the elements in our very makeup and change the outcome of our physical health. The choices we make about our jobs, (or what I might write about), what we choose to eat or drink can affect how we feel, how much energy we have for our projects, the dreams we have at night.
Our current President has a lot of fire energy. He has learned how to create smoke as a distraction while he uses his blazing fire elsewhere. I am not interested in using my energy to confuse or control people but I had not realized how much I didn’t know about how these elements work, or don’t, for me.

My next set of lessons is to understand these elements in my inner and outer body and how they affect the choices I make.

Where Do You Sit?

I am a futurist. I’ve dedicated the last 36 years of my life to healing old beliefs and patterns that kept resurfacing and in that process I’ve moved from dwelling on and in the past to being in the moment and looking forward. I’ve seen that if  I don’t change those patterns, I recreate the same type of experiences over and over. The people may have different faces but the dance isn’t new.

Writing Awakening Earth Chronicles opened my mind to a level of politics I hadn’t experienced before. (Also a new batch of patterns not seen before).  For me, as a writer, the story unfolds before me as if I were living it and I  write it down to share. I often dream parts of the story.

Recently a very powerful dream unfolded for me in which I saw the dramatic importance of changing our national anthem.  I saw that our anthem didn’t include Native Americans or blacks or browns or yellow Americans. That what we call our anthem is “very white.”  I saw that our anthem is mostly about the glory of war, a particular war and our budget certainly verifies that we could spend more on our people. There was a lot more to the dream and  I awoke feeling excited to move on it.

I wasn’t prepared,  upon sharing it, for the intense push back or the lack of interest in bringing up something that has already been glorified, our flag and anthem but not people or our beautiful land. I heard that enough is going on, why bring up the anthem?  That the past is very important and we should leave it alone just like we shouldn’t tear down confederate statues. The past is important and we shouldn’t forget it. But is the past remembered as it was or whitewashed? The flag, the anthem and war machines are all created by humans. Is that more important than LIFE?

Moving forward often feels huge and  overwhelming. Is there a place to start? What needs to change in order to move forward? In our country our Constitution is a gem, it offers us rights and freedoms not available in many other countries. But many of those rights are being questioned for different religions, colors of skin. Our anthem does not speak to all of our citizens. How can we expect unity or positive change when the song we are supposed to cross our heart and sing with total dedication continuously imprints the glory of war and dying and leaves out the glory of life?

In my mind what is glorified does not deserve this glory. What do you think and feel? please feel free to comment. I need to know what more people think in order to move forward on this. Thank you.

Inner War and Murder

Why would anyone plan, be driven, to murder over 500 people? I’m sure we are all asking that question and wondering what would drive a person to that place? A man who had retired, had money, loved to gamble, owned two planes, had been an accountant. We will probably never know since he took his life as well. So I am wondering how far out of balance his body, mind and spirit was.

I have used Hyland Cell Salts for many years.They are referred to as biochemic tissue salts. It is only recently that I have begun to understand more deeply their curative powers.  The theory of cell salts is that 12 different salts make up the whole essence of our body. Some salts control how water functions in our body, some how air/oxygen is distributed, some are more earthly and help make up bones, teeth, hair and muscles.

The 12 salts  work together to keep our body healthy and this is important, in a state of response. Just as our food is supposed to do. When cells do not get the nutrients to stay balanced they react and begin to borrow or steal from other cells for their nourishment; therefore throwing more cells out of balance. Imbalance leads to dis-ease of different kinds depending on which salts are most out of balance.  As  bodies fall into reaction  they  play out, on the physical plane, this inner stress, or inner war energy.

This man was very controlled in his actions. How is that a reaction? The need to kill 100’s of people is the reaction. The inner war was calling for outer action.

Many of us are experiencing some kind of reaction to this mass murderer and his victims. There are many reactions possible. Once in reaction it is very important to pay attention to what nourishment your body is calling for and lovingly give it to your self.

 

Dreaming

I have been journaling my dreams for numerous years. I’ve learned things about myself I couldn’t learn any other way. I’ve found some of my dreams to be extremely enlightening and other times frustrating because the information received from  the dreamer is a different language. A language of words and symbols that doesn’t fit into our logical way of thinking. And the idea that we all use the same symbols is as ridiculous as thinking our beliefs are all the same. So why do we dream?

I believe we dream to connect to a larger aspect of ourself, the parts (or information) we ignore in our everyday life. We also dream to bring more meaning to our lives. Sometimes people have nightmares not understanding that the dream is to help them see their fear and that fears can be dealt with much easier in our dream state. We dream to check out new experiences before we do it physically. or  to empower our self in new ways, like flying. Sometimes we dream the future. Sometimes we dream about how we have given up the drivers seat of our life.

I used to use my dreams, as an interior designer, to see the room(s) I was working on connected to the owner and get a more clear vision of what to do with their room(s) . I found out i could connect to their own dreams of what they really wanted.  I also dreamed a great deal of my novel/story in Awakening Earth Chronicles. Scenes unfolded in my drams that my logical mind would not have imagined.  I see dreaming as our personal connection to fullfillment.

To remember your dreams you must make a commitment by saying out loud “I want to remember my dreams” AND then writing them down. there is often a strong emotion in our drams that wakes us with full memory. opening to our dream self is like  a marriage, a deep commitment to ones Self.

Then

Then

by Isis Charest

I came into this world

a seed

Then

Like a tree, a flower, a fern

I grew upward and outward

was busy

watching the sun

dancing in the rain

smelling fragrant flowers

and tasting the joy of life.

Then

a new bud unfolded

a new me came forth

A me I didn’t know

She wanted new music

a different dance step.

She promised

We could do it together

We became great friends

Then

as blooms do

she faded,

Her time had come and gone

Sadness overwhelmed me

Then

Darkness moved in

embraced me

whispered soothing sounds

and kept me company

sleep was my new partner

Then

I heard a new voice

whisper

Its time to share some light

She was wise and caring

she made me laugh

and was my delight

I forgot she was a bloom

until that sad day

she whispered goodbye

and faded away

I didn’t know what to say or do

felt intensely alone

Then

Darkness embraced me

whispered soothing sounds

held and protected

me

while yet another bud begin to form

I held tightly to darkness

remembering this pattern of romance

Then

A voice

asked for my help

I was afraid to let go

She whispered

Each bud has a plan

I need you to bloom

I pretended not to hear

Then

She cried out

Let me breathe

I felt a wave of fear

She begged me for help

I begged her

Be still

Then

Her bloom burst open

and love

poured forth.

Then

I saw my true friend

Not the blossom

of new experiences

but Darkness

my

Co-Creator of blossoms.

Shifting

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
