Summer Solstice


Summer Solstice, Midsummer, Litha

By Tara Sutphen

21st June

“In the world’s audience hall, the simple blade of grass sits on the same carpet with the sunbeams, and the stars of midnight” – Rabindranath Tagore (Indian Poet, Playwright and Essayist, Won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913, 1861-1941)

gSummer Solstice marks the end of the waxing year. And the rays of the sun directly strike one of the two tropical latitude lines. June 21 marks the beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere, as winter begins in the southern hemisphere. On this day, the earth’s “circle of luminescence” will be from the Arctic Circle to the Antarctic Circle. The equator receives twelve hours of daylight, as there will be 24 hours of daylight at the North Pole and 24 hours of darkness at the South Pole.

gAll over the world people honor this day as an important reminder of the apex of light and to cast away evil and their problems. Northern Hemisphere inhabitants use June 21 as the day of celebration, but the splendor of light lasts from new moon to full moon.

Worshipping the Sun’s great power, all cultures celebrate in some way. Celts and Slavs dance around bonfires while Chinese marked the day honoring Li, the Goddess of Light. The celebrants of modern and ancient ceremonies tune in that life comes from the sun. It is life giving and life supporting. We’ve recently had the good fortune to have electricity, greenhouses, and shipment suppliers. How will you celebrate? We all may not get a chance to dance around the bonfire but it’s a time to bask in the light, sit in the sun, cast our worries away and awaken to our lives.

Item : The Sacred Circle USD $ 10.99

Meditation By Tara Sutphen

Following Tara’s “under the stars” induction, you travel to a sacred stone circle in the middle of a meadow. Here, in the center of the circle, you meet a beautiful woman dressed in chiffon. As she chants, you experience an expanding vortex of power within: “Where light meets darkness … where the beginning encircles the end … where joy nullifies pain … we now choose to slip between the worlds beyond time, beyond space, and we invoke the positive powers of the Universe to assist us to manifest our desires.” Chakra balancing is followed with an inspiration ritual in which you open your heart and mind to the limitless positive potentials of life on earth. You withdraw an object from a box that relates to your purpose. Walking counter clockwise you recall a happy event from the past and transmit the vibrations into the present. A clock becomes a symbol placed in the circle to assist you make the most of your valuable time. Much more. 30 Minutes.

Happy Full Pink Moon


Full Pink Moon

By Tara Sutphen

The Full Pink Moon (Native American) at 21* Libra will culminate April 10, 2017 11:09PM PdT/April 11, 2017 2:09pm EdT/April 11, 2017 6:09PM New Zealand/ April 11, 2017 4:09PM Gold Coast, Australia (Farmers Almanac/Moon Phases Calendar). The current phase of the moon is a Full Moon (99.2% illuminated), 13.9 days old and at a distance of 395424 Km (245705 Miles).

This Full Moon in Libra is all about graciousness. If you’ve been being harsh on yourself or others, now is the time to halt the criticism. You are deserving of a great life, and one of the boundaries we can set up for ourselves is to create peace in our hearts and minds. Even if you don’t have a lot of free time while working to survive, when coming off the job many don’t realize they continue reacting to outside stimulation and obligations. Many of us are conditioned to be busy or in constant movement. For our optimum contentment, we actually need to take a moment to breathe deeply and put our minds in a relaxed state along with aspired usefulness. There is a balance of finding a moment of peaceful inner understanding. Many would say that is the time we sleep, but that’s just it, we’re not consciously aware at that time. Taking minutes or moments while being conscious with some deep breathing can quiet the mind, give us glimpses of re-direction, happy memories, new hopes, or just an easing of the day.

Keeping it all on a positive note. Easy days are started by a good tempo of upbeat enthusiasm. If you can muster up some cheer, it lightens your day and of others. If you’ve been unhappy it’s always the roadmap of life to change your progress. Of course we all know people who are afraid and take no risks at all, but they’re usually in constant criticism or finding an outside substance to quelling their fears. Keeping our minds clear to make the best decisions possible usually isn’t made in haste or under duress. It’s the conception of what is the finest intentions for your life. You are the creator of your reality…

Being Appreciative of yourself and others is not about ego. It can be recognition of positive traits.

We can never walk in others shoes but we can stroll a sweet journey.

Sedona Mystic Training
with Tara Sutphen

June 17-18, 2017
or
October 28-29, 2017

The Mystic Training is learning to sorce.  An occult power class to learn “Sorcery” — how to “sorce” answers and awareness as in the ancient Egyptian Mystery Schools.  You will learn to use the power and energy of the Universe and to be at one with that power.  Tara will help you to unblock your psychic centers and assist you to make contact with your Spirit Guides and Higher-Self, to channel, automatic write, use unique Tarot techniques, and access the path of your true destiny — opening to the deepest and most powerful part of yourself.  We’ll also tap into excellence and merit through the exploration of psychic connection with the other side. Insight leads us out of vagueness.  Not everyone seeks to decipher past blunders or catch a glimpse of the future as it might unfold, but those who do want to search for meaning to their dilemmas and gain confidence to live an important and rewarding life. Opening the five senses leads to deeper-consciousness. 

Learning to manifest the splendor in all things, we want our relationships, love, success, happiness, family, great health, money, knowledge, wisdom to be the best it can be.  Tara will help you unblock your psychic centers and assist you to make contact with your Mystics, Spirit Guides and Higher-Self for guidance. Included: Meditations, Life-Force Activation, Sorcing techniques, class discussions, and clarification. Join Tara and a small group of fellow travelers who will work together to create a magical and mystical weekend filled with deep learning of personal and universal mysteries.

Tara Sutphen is a modern Master of the occult sciences, having proved over and over again her ability to communicate with the dead, to obtain psychic answers, and predict coming events.
