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.
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.
What are you learning?
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!
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.

by Isis Charest
I came into this world
Like a tree, a flower, a fern
I grew upward and outward
watching the sun
dancing in the rain
smelling fragrant flowers
and tasting the joy of life.
a new bud unfolded
a new me came forth
A me I didn’t know
She wanted new music
a different dance step.
We could do it together
We became great friends
as blooms do
Her time had come and gone
Sadness overwhelmed me
Darkness moved in
whispered soothing sounds
and kept me company
sleep was my new partner
I heard a new voice
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
Darkness embraced me
whispered soothing sounds
held and protected
while yet another bud begin to form
I held tightly to darkness
remembering this pattern of romance
asked for my help
I was afraid to let go
Each bud has a plan
I need you to bloom
I pretended not to hear
She cried out
Let me breathe
I felt a wave of fear
She begged me for help
I begged her
Her bloom burst open
I saw my true friend
Not the blossom
of new experiences
Co-Creator of blossoms.
In my novels, Awakening Earth Chronicles, I asked the question: what would it take to unite all people on Earth? It was a much bigger challenge than I realized! However, something big happened in my story that I would not have thought of, or dreamed of, without that focused thought. Writing does that, allows me to go much deeper into a subject.
At this point in time, as I look outward, it feels as if we, as a people, are more separated and less willing to agree with another persons views. But maybe we have finally reached a place where we are becoming more connected to our own truth. In my novels, my characters become very aware of their connection to the consciousness of Earth/Gaia. The voice they hear within and in their dreams leads each person and they become aware that each person has a special wisdom and all their responses are needed to arrive at the biggest picture of any challenge. This voice needs to be spoken, made audible, by each person. They do not have the same thoughts, are not clones, but rather each person has answers from their own journey that are needed.
If one person is afraid, doesn’t trust or is unwilling to voice, to share, their special piece of this puzzle there is a hole, information that is needed is not available to the whole and the steps taken without this important piece may lead the whole group astray. Perhaps we are looking outward for agreement rather than experiencing the shift in consciousness where we see important pieces of information from each person we didn’t have before.
