The Light vs the Dark … Shedding some Light

The Light vs. the Dark, Good vs. Evil… These are common themes known by everyone and portrayed in many popular books and films (e.g. the Star Wars series).  There is much misunderstanding and polarization around these themes, so I decided to “shed some light” (no pun intended) on the subject.


There are definitely two forces present in this universe of ours:  Light and Dark.  At our essence, we are all Light, so in a certain sense, “Light is all there is.”  However, we knew ourselves to be “all Light” only a long time ago, prior to incarnating in physical form.


From the very beginning God has been the “Absolute” energy—omnipresent, limitless, eternal, non-changing, all Light.  When the Absolute decided it wanted to know itself (when you are “all one”, you don’t get a reflection of yourself), the Absolute decided to multiple into “the many” and become physical—and, thus, a part of the relative, ever-changing, temporal, limited, physical world. 


Therefore, the physical universe, by definition, has two polarities: the absolute, Light energy underlying the whole thing, and the relative, ever-changing temporal energy that we experience daily.  We live in the 3rd dimensional world, the world of all things physical, yet we have an underlying tap-in to the 4th dimension, the realm of energy and consciousness that underlies the entire 3rd dimensional plane.


Back to the two forces:  When the Light manifested into the physical, it became “less Light”….. that is “further away from the pure Light that it once was”, since it left its pure state in the Absolute.  The further away from its nature it became, the more “lost” it became to itself, and one could say, the “darker” it became.  The goal of this game of Life therefore, is for all of us to return to that pure state of awareness and Light that we are at our essence, to return to the purity of God  that forms our essential nature, at the deepest levels of our Being.


When the Light manifested into the physical, parts of the Light turned against the Light.  This needed to happen in order for the Light to experience all aspects of the physical, non-spiritual universe.  And it is this darkness, or lack of Light, that needs to be healed and cleared in all of us in order for us to return to the oneness and Light that we are.  We have gotten about as far from the Light as we can get (look at our world and the things humans do to each other), and now, we are shifting and learning to come from a Higher place, in order to return to the Light that we are (notice how “metaphysics” has become more and more a part of mainstream life in the past 15-20 years.)


The Dark isn’t “bad”, it is simply that which isn’t Light, that which is counter to the Light.  In our journey to get back to the pure Light that we are, we need to encounter those parts of ourselves that have become “dark” and ego-driven.  Our Higher Self is committed to the Highest Good for all.  Our “lower self” or ego is committed to our own self, regardless of what happens to others.  The ego is power, control and greed-driven, and creates separation.  The Higher Self wants union, peace, harmony, and a “win/win” for all concerned.  The  ego is fed by fear, negativity, and lack. The Higher Self operates from faith, security, and abundance.


When we are ego-driven, we obey our inner fears, and open ourselves further to “darkness” and negativity.  When the ego is in charge, it wants to make us look good and everyone else bad.  It wants to win and make others lose. The ego is not about true surrender or grace. The ego is self-serving and doesn’t truly care about the well-being of others. 


We always need to check ourselves and see where we are coming from.  When we commit to our Higher Self, we surrender to the Light that we are.  When we feed the fears of the ego, we allow darkness and negativity to dominate in our life.  The challenge is to do the work on your self as necessary, to raise your vibration, to continually come from a higher place of love and light.


You are not “bad” for coming from your ego. This is not about judging or finding fault with yourself.  However, it is important to keep checking yourself and clearing whatever negativity or fears are running you or dominating your behavior.  This is the path of the true seeker.  It is important to acknowledge and move through all places of darkness and negativity within, in order to get to a Higher place of love and light in your life.


Going into Denial About the Dark


“The dark doesn’t exist.”  I have seen people choose this point of view again and again.  It seems to help them feel safe.  Many years ago, I met a spiritual teacher who told me, “You’re not light enough for the dark to care.”  I have remembered that all these years.  At that point, I didn’t have much spiritual clout.  Therefore, I wasn’t a “threat” to anyone running the show in this place.  I actually didn’t know much about the dark, but I figured, as long as I kept meditating every day, I was okay spiritually.  It wasn’t until YEARS later that I “became light enough” and needed to learn about the dark.


I have since learned that everyone on the spiritual path, at some point, needs to learn how to deal with dark energies.  There is a level at which we all, in a physical body, in this creation, have been “nailed” by dark forces in their attempts to keep us from returning to the Light that we are.  However, the Light shall prevail, it is written, for this is the Highest Truth.  In the meantime, the journey home is about clearing or releasing the dark’s hold on us, so that we can reclaim the full Light that we are, at our essence. 


Part of this reclaiming process includes clearing our fears of the dark.  And, in order to clear our fears, we must become aware of them.  Becoming aware of them can feel scary… of course… because it feels scary to feel our fears.  But in feeling them, we are able to release the hold they have on us, and we are able to become stronger and feel safer, more and more with time.


However, sometimes people decide that they don’t want to get in touch with their fears.  The fear is that they will be “in fear forever.”  So instead of being the spiritual warrior they need to be and dealing with their fears head on, they choose to avoid their fears and pretend that “darkness doesn’t exist.”  When a person does this, they are actually opening the door wide to invite dark energies to mess with them.  A wise man once said, “What you resist persists.”  Another way to say this is, what you fear, at the deepest levels (even subconsciously) runs you.  What you pretend isn’t real can only wind up “biting you in the butt” down the road.


Acknowledging and moving through your fears of the dark isn’t necessarily an easy process.  In fact, it is scary. That is the nature of fear.  However, as you hack your way through this jungle of fear, more Light comes in, along with more spiritual power and awareness.  Your true, God-given gifts start becoming available to you.  It is ultimately a beautiful journey and well worth taking.


Being on the spiritual path means choosing to work through your issues with consciousness rather than going into denial about them, choosing to tell the truth about what is going on inside you, and taking responsibility for your experience of all that is taking place in your world.  You are always challenged to better yourself, to become more of who you truly are.  It is exciting, interesting (never boring!!!), and ultimately joy-producing.  Remember, the Truth shall set you free.


With Light and Love,



Photos of Saints, Masters and Animals on display

A reader wrote to us:
Hi Phyllis, thank you so much for that information.  This prompts a question:  is it a problem to have photos of saints, masters, animals on one’s wall at home?
            — Thanks so much for everything.  Gitta
When you have a spiritual master’s photo or image on your wall, there is still a connection to his or her energy.  In a way, this is why you have it on your wall… to stay in contact with a higher spiritual energy.  I think that the master who left is probably fine with you continuing to connect with their energy. I think that the master who left is probably fine with you continuing to connect with their energy.  However, if you decide you want to dispose of the image, I would recommend the technique I created to clear the person’s energy from the photo before disposing of it.  I think it would be a kind thing to do, even for the person who has departed this plane.  Whatever you do to a person’s photo here on this plane, will have a very subtle effect on the person energetically, wherever they may be.  The same holds true for animals.

Feeling Sick Lately?

Working in the field of health and well-being, I am able to notice certain patterns that appear.  I have noticed that, for about the past 3 months, more people than normal have been getting sick with flu-like symptoms.  Many of these people have said to me, “I NEVER get sick”… so whatever is going on is highly unusual.  In fact, I have been blessed with the ability to clear viruses and bacteria that cause flu-like symptoms (as of the past 13 years), so I, too, am one of those people who NEVER gets sick.

However, a few weeks ago, even I kept attracting weird virus-like things that made me feel very sick.  It was so bizarre… I can clear those things, and have my Personal Rejuvenizer set up to clear them as well.  Yet, they kept getting through!  Another very odd occurrence. I will share what I know on two levels, to shed some light on the situation.


First, I turn to astrology to get an overview of the planetary energies taking place at this time.  Astrology is not the “causal factor” but more the illuminating factor, giving us folks down here on earth the possibility of understanding what is going on with the planet energetically.  I am not an astrologer, so I invite you to research this more if you’re interested, however I see a couple of things that are worth noting.  We have been having a “Mars/Pluto opposition.”  (You can research the timing of this and how long it will continue.)  Mars rules the first house which is your physical body… and also your identity.  Pluto is the planet of deep renewal and transformation.  Pluto represents the phoenix rising from the ashes and ascending heavenward.  The problem is that Pluto also includes an aspect of “crashing and burning” first.  For the phoenix to rise from the ashes, it has to first fall into the fire and get burned.

So, what we have here, in part, is a “crashing and burning” phase that is directly affecting our physical bodies.  Can you relate?  In other words, our negative programming about “being in a body,” “enjoying being in a body,” “feeling connected to our body,” “pushing ourselves to do more when our body doesn’t want to,” etc. is “up for review.” 

What happens is that you get sick because of your programming—perhaps by attracting the new viruses that seem to be appearing (we’ll talk about this more in a moment).  Then you “get to be right” about your negative beliefs.  The ones I’ve seen many are having right now go like this:  “I hate being in a body.”  “Being in a body is hard.” “Being in a body isn’t fun.” (Of course it’s not, especially when you’re sick!!) “I’d rather die than be here.”  “I feel like I’m dying here.”  “Who wants to be here anymore?”…. and with this one, there’s a sense of losing meaning and purpose to life.  You get the idea: lots of negative beliefs and feelings about being in a body, even as far as feeling like you’re dying or wanting to die. 

These thoughts and feelings generally have their roots in past life experiences, and they are coming up now for review and clearing.  If you clear the negative programs that surface as you go through this period, you will come out of this feeling much lighter and freer of your old negative programming that attracted the sickness to you in the first place.

Ultimately, if we do our best to “ride the high side” and be positive throughout the experience (no matter how bad we may feel in the moment), we come out better, stronger, and transformed in our experience of being in the body.  Perhaps if we get sick long enough, it will feel so much better once we’re healthy, that we will appreciate that state of health and well-being even more.  There is a transformational side to all this, although while we’re going through the sick part, there doesn’t seem to be much positivity in sight.

Sometimes we go through this experience by projection:  that is, we have loved ones in our life, either people or pets, who are sick or have even died.  But remember, it’s no accident what is going on around us.  It is all there for the purpose of our own spiritual growth and awareness. So, even though we don’t go through the negative feelings directly through our own bodies, we still feel them because of what’s going on in the bodies of those around us.  Mars opposed Pluto definitely brings up more “sickness” and more “death” stuff than we normally would be experiencing.


Second, I am very aware of a phenomenon that seems to be taking place on this planet: the “downloading” of dark, anti-spiritual viruses and virus-like things by what I call “dark forces.”  It’s nothing to be scared of.  It is just part of the challenge we all face being here, at this time, where the forces of dark are battling the forces of Light at a deep level for control.  The Light is on the docket to win, however it still has many challenges to face during the process.

For many years, with a Personal Rejuvenizer , I have been able to avoid picking up any viruses or bacteria.  I used to get sick all the time.  With the Personal Rejuvenizer, I stopped getting sick. Now, with these new “downloads” of viruses, I am having to work extra hard to add new functions to the Rejuvenizers to clear them.  I can’t protect from something that doesn’t yet exist, so once I’m aware of something new that has just made its debut on the planet, I quickly add clearing and healing functions to the Rejuvenizer to deal with the new problem at hand.

Ultimately, whenever we get sick, whether it’s by picking up a virus or due to negative subconscious programming, this is a “growth opportunity.”  You have a chance to look within and re-work any places within you that make you feel weak, vulnerable, or stressed, that led to your being sick in the first place.  This ultimately allows you to become stronger, freer, and clearer, so in the long run, it’s a good thing. 

I’m big on “techniques.”  When you feel sick, do something: 1) Call for a mini-session   2) Practice the  Rapid Integration Technique in Ch. 9 of Prince Charming Lives, Princess Charming Does Too,  3) Practice the Advanced Subconscious Clearing Technique on p. 27 of Love Now, Here’s How. That way, you will help yourself get through your sickness as rapidly as possible, and create greater freedom and better health for yourself in the long run.

Being in the Light versus Being in the Dark

My clients call me the “Ralph Nader of Spirituality.”  With 35 years in the field, I have developed the ability to see and know what is going on at the deepest levels with any particular technique, spiritual practice, device, supplement, practitioner, or any item that someone might want to purchase to further their spiritual evolution. My intent is to “protect the consumer,” to help people make choices that are for their Highest Good.  There are times when people hear me say, “that device brings in dark energies,” or “that person is in the dark.”  I want to explain what that means.

There are two forces in this world of duality:  Light and Dark.  Both are strong on the planet at this time, and we have a choice, at the deepest levels of our Being, as to which force we want to align ourselves with.  Many people may want to or think they’re aligning themselves with the forces of Light, but due to old, negative, subconscious programming or due to having been “nailed” by Dark forces many lifetimes ago, they may inadvertently pull in some sort of spiritual practice, teacher, or device that leads them further into the dark.  So, what does this mean, to be “in the Light,” or “in the Dark?”

The Light is uplifting, it brings us “upwards”… inspires us, helps us to feel more connected to God and to our Highest Spiritual Self within.  The more we allow Light to flow through our Being, the more intuitive we are and the more spiritual power we have to manifest our needs and desires in life, according to our Highest Spiritual Good. Being “in the Light” supports us in having our hearts be open to love.

The Dark brings us “down.”  The Dark wants to snuff out our Light, for fear that it will disappear.  The Dark wants to keep us limited and unconscious of the powerful Spiritual Beings that we are at our core. The Dark wants us to feel disconnected from our Higher Self and powerless to change our condition.  The Dark feeds on fear and powerlessness, therefore, it has an investment in keeping us fearful and powerless, in order to protect its existence.

We have all needed to incarnate in a creation where these polarities have been so strong, in order to learn and grow.  Many people have had serious encounters with Dark forces, in order to develop a deep desire to be of the Light and serve the forces of Light.  Many have been “nailed” by the Dark, often lifetimes ago, in order to work through their feelings of being vulnerable and come to a place of greater trust and faith in the forces of Light.

Whatever your life path has been to date, new choices can be made. This isn’t a matter of which is “right” or “wrong,” “good” or “bad,” it’s a matter of becoming aware of the choices you have been making and empowering yourself to re-think and re-choose some aspects of your life that have not been for your Highest Good.

What we’re talking about here is the process of “waking up to who you are as a Spiritual Being.”  We have collectively lived, for many lifetimes, in what the ancient Vedic seers of India called, “Kali Yuga,” the “Age of Darkness.”  Although a very challenging period for humankind, it is said that souls incarnate during this period because it offers the most tremendous potential for growth and spiritual advancement.  It’s almost as if during this period, we “hit rock bottom” spiritually, and the only place left to go is “up.”

So, on that level, the Dark is here to teach us.  By contrast, we begin to learn of the tremendous Light we have within, and then we begin to seek this Light in order to grow and develop our true spiritual potential.  The challenge, during this “dark cycle” that we’ve been in, is that the Dark has a stronghold, and is doing it’s best to keep people stuck and unconscious.  It often takes great strength in one’s soul, to break free from the constraints that have been put on us, having lived for many eons, with the Dark dominating our consciousness.

Many people are so used to being unconscious and accepting that this is the “norm” in life, that they may turn a deaf ear to the “wake-up call” to connect with their Highest Spiritual Self.  It is often easier to “give in to the Darkness” that permeates life here, than to work at breaking free and choosing the path of Light and Self-discovery.

How Is It That Some People Don’t Notice the Difference Between Being In the Light and Being In the Dark?

First, being “in the dark” is an energetic state.  Many people are not in touch with themselves energetically.  Often, people will try and avoid feeling any negative energy within them, and become more “third dimensional” in the process.  In becoming third dimensional, they only give credence to what is happening in the physical world around them. They ignore any deeper levels of what’s going on within them energetically, in what I call the “fourth dimension.”  By going “third dimensional,” a person can become totally unaware of the energy within and around them.

Something else can happen that make people unaware of what is going on with them energetically.  When a person “gets nailed” with “Dark energies,”  they may begin to feel depressed, anxious, or unhappy in some way.  (“Getting nailed” like this can happen due to one’s own “past life abuse” experiences, connecting deeply with someone who “shares” their negative energies with you, working on someone who has such dark energies, i.e., a chiropractor, massage therapist, any kind of energy healer, etc.) The person who “got nailed” will probably have no clue what to do about this, since this knowledge is not prevalent out there in the world.  What they may do instead, as a “coping mechanism,” is to create “other dimensions” to which they go, in order to not be present in THIS dimension, here and now, and avoid feeling the negative energies within them.

To explain further about other dimensions:  Each dimension has a particular thought that characterizes the dimension, and that makes a person want to “leave.”  For example, a person might create: ‘I don’t feel good being here; therefore I’m out of here’ dimension.”  Or, ‘I’m not happy being here, therefore, I don’t want to be here” dimension.” And then a person “goes there” and leaves present time.

The problem with creating and going to “other dimensions” is that:  1) you are not really dealing with the negative energies present here, in your life, so you are not getting the learning and growth from the experiences you’ve attracted, 2) you are not fully present and aware, here and now, which could lead to accidents or other negative occurrences, since part of you isn’t really “here,” and 3) you’re not able to enjoy yourself fully, since true enjoyment is present-time experience of being alive and aware, here and now.

If you are willing to be fully present and energetically aware in the here and now, you will definitely notice the difference between “being in the Light” and “being in the Dark.”  When you are in the Dark, you unwittingly “invite” Dark energies in to mess around with you.  Since they feed off of fear and negativity, you will find yourself feeling more fearful and negative.  Often what Dark energies do is drain the life force out of your spiritual body.  When you’re not connected to who you are as a spiritual being, it is possible that you may not be aware of this. 

If you find out that this is what’s going on with you, don’t judge or berate yourself.  We have all been programmed for eons to be just “physical beings” and not connected to our tru
e spiritual nature.  It has been a difficult journey, through the darkness of “Kali Yuga,” to stay in touch with our Highest Spiritual Selves.  One of my reasons for writing this is to help people wake up even further and become more aware of themselves as spiritual Beings.  So, how do you make the shift to being in the Light, if you have been “nailed” by the Dark? 

The best way to turn this situation around is through prayer.  First, you must be willing to acknowledge that there may be a problem of which you are unaware.  Then, you must be willing to pray and ask, from the deepest place you can within your heart, to be made aware of what is going on with you and what to do about it.  If you create other dimensions, or get stuck in your ego, which will make you feel defensive and think that there isn’t a problem, then there will be nothing within you that will be receptive to finding the support you need to re-connect with your Highest Spiritual Self.

Your Highest Spiritual Self is about Love and Light.  The more Light you let in, the more your capacity to experience Love increases.  The more you let go of any Dark influence within your Being, the more you grow toward becoming the Spiritual Being of Light and Love that you are at your essence.

One More Pitfall… Enjoying Being In the Dark

This can be a challenge for some, because there is a degree of healing and power that comes with the Dark.  This is the place where the ego can get stuck and where a lot of learning needs to take place.  There are healers that heal with Dark powers.  The problem is that a person may get “healed” physically, however, they may be damaged even further in their ability to connect to their Highest Spiritual Self. 

Remember, the Dark has an investment in keeping us stuck in fear and negativity.  The Dark does not want us to become Light, as that will make the Dark disappear.  So essentially, the Dark is fighting for its survival.  There is no judgment here.  This is just how it is. 

We are all on the path that some part of us has chosen in order to learn and grow.  By attracting this information to you, you are becoming aware of the deeper nature of Life and such awareness can only empower you to make better choices that support your Highest Spiritual Good.  You always have a choice as to which path to follow, once you become aware.

A System of Intuitive Measurements

I have been given all this information about “Light” and “Dark” by my “Higher Ups” (my “guides”) over the past 35 years.  I have been studying what goes on in people’s energy fields when they are “in the dark” and “in the Light.”  I have been given a system of “measurements”… so that I can intuitively know where a person is, in order to be able to help them get freer, and higher in the Light.

My unseen “helpers” told me that 1 through 46 represents “levels of Light,” and that beyond 46 represents moving into a Higher state of consciousness in which a person is more connected to their Highest Spiritual Self.  The higher the number, the greater the connection. Apparently the scale doesn’t have an “ending point,” as consciousness has the ability to continually expand. 

I learned that many actors or singers reach a level of Light that is way beyond where most people are on that scale… sometimes getting as high as “120,” “130” or even, on occasion, above “150.”  This is why we call them “stars,” because their “Light” is so bright, it is almost perceptible.  Even the most unconscious person can feel it at a deep level!

Conversely, my helpers have shown me people who are in the “minus” numbers of Light.  These are people who are “in the dark.”  The darkness within them is essentially bringing them down and hiding their Light.  I have seen anywhere from minus 2 or 3 down to minus 49. 

Usually, a person who has been brought down so much by dark energies will have built a strong ego defense system to “prove they are okay,” and would not be willing to admit there is a problem.  The ego can be our biggest barrier to evolving spiritually, as true surrender or Grace is what allows us to grow and become all that we are spiritually.  When the ego fights to defend and prove that everything is alright, the person will resist “surrendering” to the Highest truth about what is going on with them.

My Work

Over many years, I have gathered awareness of all the various things that can “nail” people and bring them into the dark.  When I would do sessions with people, I would spend a lengthy time naming all the various components I would see (energetic “time bombs,” “booby-traps,” “dark pipelines running through them,” “honing devices,” “inter-dimensional doors,” “portals to dark dimensions,” “curse energy,” “dark devices thrown into a person by someone with mal intent,” etc.).  Then I would use my spiritual authority and healing abilities to clear all that I saw, normalize the person’s energy field, and clear old  subconscious programming that attracted the experience in the first place.  Again, it took me many years of focus and avid study to figure all this out, so I wouldn’t really expect anyone to be able to easily release the hold the Dark has on them, even after learning about this.

This is why the most important component is prayer, and the willingness to acknowledge that something doesn’t feel “right” within you.  Without this sincere desire to know what is going on inside you and grow past your current limitations, you may find yourself stuck, for awhile, with all the negative energies you’ve attracted to you.

The Rejuvenizer’s Role

As much as I would like to, there is no way I can see everyone in the world on an individual basis.  I am only one person and there are only so many hours in a day.  However, I created the Rejuvenizers as a way to help many people at once, with my knowledge and healing skills.  I have set up the Personal Rejuvenizer to help clear all these dark energies on a regular basis, to give a person the absolute best shot at keeping themselves in the Light and as spiritually uplifted as possible. 

If a person is on an avid quest to develop themselves spiritually, then I would still recommend additional clearing work, in which I help people release a lot of “old baggage” (negative programming in the subconscious).  We continually create our reality with our thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs, so clearing the old ones in our subconscious that no longer serve us is an invaluable aid to our process of personal and spiritual growth. 

The Rejuvenizer certainly isn’t the “cure-all” for every ill we have. However, it is my best attempt to help people to get back in the Light and enjoy a higher quality, more enjoyable life, in which they are more connected to their intuition and Highest Spiritual Self.  This is certainly not the only function of the Rejuvenizer (click here for more info:, but to me, this is one of the most valuable and sorely needed functions the Rejuvenizer has to offer.
