They Still Live


They Still Live

By Tara Sutphen

They still live, just not in our world. The dead that is. So I have this little story to tell you. I’ve been in Anchorage, Alaska where I grew up, visiting my relatives, friends and working for non-profit “Awakening Spiritual Unity”, for which I’m President. Justin Haughn hasn’t been to Anchorage before and he’s come up to work at Elmendorf Air Force base for the Blue Angel Air show. He’s married to Christina Chandler-Haughn, one of my amazing psychic students who I call ‘baby mystic’. Justin and I meet in downtown Anchorage. I’ve been running errands and trying to catch up with some of my cousins. I’m at a market festival, and I show him my Christmas card photo! And we start taking photos posing by a catering place selling salmon quesadillas and petting a 140lb Malamute.

I ask Justin if we can stop to see a few of my dead relatives in the graveyard. I’ve been meaning to stop by. My mom has texted me where they are earlier in the week, but it’s all of 3 sentences of directions. The graveyard is massive, there is no one in the office. I locate a few who I’m looking for, as they are buried in the Masonic and Moose sections. Justin and I are reading each head stone. Time consuming and fascinating as some of the graves date back to 1923. I’m still driving around the cemetery, Justin is such a great sport as I keep stopping and running out into the middle of the stones, still looking for 2 relatives grave by grave. We’re now in the Catholic section, no real reason just feeling compelled. When all of a sudden I make a huge hyena wail, (poor Justin)…one of my best friend’s graves stares at me. She wasn’t even Catholic, she was Mormon. I assumed when she died she’d been cremated. I didn’t know. Linda Marie Heaton, a lovely headstone with her photo.

Justin and I thought it remarkable that she wanted me to stop by and see her out of probably 2,000+ graves. And he’s liking the fact he’s on the adventure when I’m having these bizarre psychic experiences. He can’t wait to tell his wife.

I take him to “Gwennie’s” in Spenard, an old Alaska cafe and we start sharing the photos we’ve taken. I mention how my reflection is in Linda’s headstone, we gasp at the second photo. I wanted Justin to capture the saying on Linda’s grave and unintentionally the reflection of my body is on her head. I haven’t downloaded the photos on to the computer yet. There could be other phenomena and surreal qualities.

After Gwennie’s, I bring Justin to the Lake house where Nadine gives him raspberry jam she’s made from our harvest. It’s 9:15pm but I ask Justin if he’s game to go to a glacier? So we decide to drive the few hours to Portage Glacier. Our together time has to be at hyper speed, I have to get him back on base sometime tonight! The outing will be fun as we’ve been invited to relatives houses and also to help Tanya sparkle bead bandanas for Sturgis. But I’m not thinking that’s what Justin would like and it’s still light out, men really like the magnificence of real Alaska, so we take off toward the wilderness. I have to show him some real Alaska, especially after subjecting him to the graveyard. We make it to Portage where the midnight sun is just beginning to go down.  Jumping out of the car, we take a bunch of photos of icebergs and we try to drive further but the road to Whittier is closed so we take it as a cue to race back to Anchorage and the Air Force Base.  We talk about goals and the future along the way. Justin thanks me for taking him to the graveyard. We’re still so amazed my friend called after me not to miss her grave. She was a gorgeous woman who would read “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” aloud to me while we cooked and sat around. She has a beautiful daughter Regina. Friends are forever… I send her waves of Great Love and thank her for gracing my life.

Full Sturgeon Moon


Full Sturgeon Moon

By Tara Sutphen

The Full Buck Moon (Native American) at 25* Aquarius will culminate August 18, 2016 2:29AM PdT/5:29AM EdT (Farmers Almanac).

Moon distance to earth:

The current phase of the moon is a Waxing Gibbous (98.6% illuminated), 13.6 days old and at a distance of 382580 Km (237724 Miles).

This Full Moon in Aquarius is all about making new plans for your future, especially regarding relationships. I’m sure you have friendships and love relationships needing revision. Take the time to look at what needs to be changed. Many problems begin when communication gets jumbled or garbled. Speak up, be sympathetic and be willing to understand. Have you been guilty of all of sudden someone you thought heard you is no longer listening or you no longer hear them? It’s good to have a nice conversation and clear the air.

Aquarius sensibility is always about finding a solution or a mending tool, intellectualizing instead of falling headlong into emotional drama. We all have those regretful moments when something was said and for some reason the rapport you once had can’t be mended. Truly if someone can’t forgive you, then they were never your friend or sweetheart, it’s a shamanic sign to turn away from these kinds of situations. You are here on earth to fulfill your journey, and the people in your circle should offer joy and not sorrow. It’s okay to be a friend, but it’s not tolerable to be a life-raft in a roiling sea.

Situations happen where people hurt your feelings, or there are those who try to control you, usually they have an innate fear of life. It can be a painful process letting go of people who once meant a lot to you. And sometimes you can reach out, nothing has to be lost between you if both parties are in agreement to fix necessary issues. People aren’t mind-readers. But don’t over explain, you don’t have to.

Recognize who you love, and who are your real friends? Choose easily the people who care, lovely gestures, gaiety and laughter. And if you’re fine with most people, concentrate on your goals, exercise, learn new things and seek happiness. Life is about forging ahead, after all the planet is moving at approximately 67,000 mph. Gravity plays a role in keeping us on the earth but we don’t have to wear lead boots while trying to get where we want to go. We want our lives to mean something in this vast universe.

Earth orbits the Sun at an average speed of 67,000 mph, or 18.5 miles a second. Perhaps that seems a bit sluggish — after all, Mars Pathfinder journeyed to Mars at nearly 75,000 miles per hour. We are progressing toward Vega a bright star in Lyra. The motion that’s left must be the particular motion of our Galaxy through the universe! And how fast is the Milky Way Galaxy moving? The speed turns out to be an astounding 1.3 million miles per hour (2.1 million km/hr)!

Make it your motto: No Fear. And make concerted effort to not be afraid of change. Remember to go in the same direction with those you care about. Life is too short to play by others rules or games. Be a clear thinking human, you want real love and true love, you want to create a career. You want to gain money or trade goods for your time and energy. Your health is to be supreme, which means to feed, water and bathe your vessel. You are a temple and must treat yourself as such. There are guidelines to the planet and if you aren’t procreating wonderful souls, you must give in some way. Whether it be through expertise or kindness, it is a natural cycle where you can come into your center of being. The movement of giving and receiving with good intention will bring you into amazing soul goals. Come back into balance, make the right decisions for you, for your beloved family and friends. Your future is in your hands.

. If you’ve been feeling like a good change or studying a new subject, this is the time to forge ahead. You create your own reality. If you’ve been feeling like you’re stuck, can’t get ahead, the routine is too stale. Always communicate, saying your truth gently. Our reality is created by moving in a straight forward direction.

~~ “To be prosperous is not to be superior, and should form no barrier between men. Wealth ought not to secure the prosperous the slightest consideration. The only distinctions which should be recognized are those of the soul, of strong principle, of incorruptible integrity, of usefulness, of cultivated intellect, of fidelity in seeking the truth. ~William Ellery Channing (American Unitarian Clergyman and Author 1780-1842)
