Full Singing Moon


Full Singing Moon

By Tara Sutphen

The Full Singing Moon at 7* Aries will culminate September 29, 2012 8:19pm PDT/11:19pm EDT (farmers almanac).

Last month we had August’s Full “Blue” Dog Days Moon, the second moon of the month. We were to focus on “a real time” of introspection, undo the unshakable, question unhappiness, sorrow and regrets. And now at our Full Singing Moon we are to begin to rebuild our relationships with others. No more hiding or “crying over spilled milk”. We’re to open our hearts to our friends and families, and accept the support and gifts they bring. Recognition and appreciation can go a long way to soothe another’s soul. Abide by the tasks at hand with some camaraderie and good manners. We know how we like to be treated and we open up to regard others the same way. We can get stuck in our everyday routine. We forge ahead without considering time and effort toward others we care for. We can miss entire sections of our own or others development, being too preoccupied with either being too responsible or immature. Many of us bungle perfectly good relationships and friendships by discounting they will always be in place to “pick up where they leave off”.

This is not to say we should be okay at wasting big chunks of our time in idle pursuits, there is balance in all actions and reactions. We all need rest as well as to be productive. If we make a conscious shift to make effort with those we care about and to act upstanding rather than misgiving. Not only shifting our interpretation in our minds but in our interactions, we find fulfillment. Becoming less fearful and fretful, if we act generous we can form easy alliances. We need to aspire toward contentment at work and in the home. Constructive association can improve our days. We all know what happens when we allow chaos to reign supreme. We feel inferior and make bad decisions. Mistakes can easily be made and take a measurable amount of time to undo. No matter how careful we try to be, we all seem to accumulate these blunders. All conflict, anger and worry will pass in time. And if we can learn to figure out ourselves instead of misunderstand, we become better for it.

Write a list of what you require from others-

  • Intellectual compatibility
  • Emotional compatibility
  • Spiritual compatibility
  • Sharing events
  • Laughing together
  • finding solutions to problems together
  • sharing meals
  • easy time sharing
  • listening to their problems
  • they listen to you

Whether we put our best foot forward in social situations or not, we find ourselves having to deal with others. When we surround ourselves with compatible and like minded people we tend to flow in our lives. Of course this isn’t always possible, especially within family structures. To look at the compatibility instead of the differences can be one good way to overcome uneasiness. You can never go wrong acting thoughtful and being kind.

“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” ~Lao Tzu (Chinese Taoist Philosopher, founder of Taoism, wrote “Tao Te Ching” (also “The Book of the Way”). 600 BC-531 BC)

Tara Sutphen Interviews Marek Zgirski – Shaman

Tara Sutphen interviews



Marek Zgirski is an
Energy Healing Shaman. In 1975 he became interested in helping heal others from within. His journey began in Poland, he was born of the House of Holstein-Gottorp-Romanov, yet Communism stripped his titles. Through it all, he lived happily in Poland, owning a grocery store and caring for his beautiful family. Surprisingly his wife Alina won the national lottery to move to America. Alina, who was content in her native land, could not understand why she was awarded this opportunity. A relative had placed their names, as their oldest daughter had learned English and it was her dream to move to America. Sadly, a drunk driver took her life and stole her chance of this wish. The family precedes to live her vision.


Q. Marek, when did you become interested in Healing work?

A. When I was 21, I went to work for the Poland’s Ocean Company. Spending 14 years travelling the world, I was able to see many people in distress. I wanted to reach out. So I did so energetically. My grandmother told me I was holy and special from markings on my head. I remember telling her I wanted to be a normal sailor. But I knew in my heart, I love people. At 11 years old I went to buy a bicycle from my piano teacher. On the way I saw a woman crying over a water grate where she had lost her money. I handed her my money, I didn’t get anything in return other than her gratitude and tears. And I never did get the bicycle. A few years later I made a tandem bicycle, as working with my Grandfather I learned to make things. I helped him make Grand Pianos and to tune them by ear. I started tuning into hearing the vibration of people.

Q. Tell me about the time you were in the “Perfect Storm”?

A. I didn’t experience fear, there was a huge thunderstorm at the same time as an Earthquake under the sea. Our ship’s captain decided we needed to travel 80 miles straight into the wind’s headway and giant waves to another port. Not a good leader as it took 5 days for a 6 hour trip. Our ship fell to its side, and miraculously the ships engine stayed running, another wave hit us on the other side. And it up righted the ship. Many sailors began losing their minds in fear. I stayed calm. It was a brutal challenge, but I reinforced and spoke up about our inner strength and to believe we would all live.

Q. Other life changing experiences in your travels?

A. In Beirut, 1980, in the war where they fought each other, a soldier put a gun to my head and told me he would kill me. He decided not to, but murdered another man in front of me. When I got back to the ship, I offered so much compassion for his soul. I don’t know why the soldier had spared me and taken the other man’s life. I pray for this departed man often.

I had another incident in Peru, where they were going to kill me with a gun. I don’t speak Spanish and they had a gun pointing at my head, and my fellow sailors with me didn’t speak Spanish either. We were forced face down in the dirt for hours during the day. By nightfall, the gunmen were gone and we made a run for it back to the ship. Again my life had been spared. I felt God was saving me to work in an uncommon way.

Q. Random impact?

A. There was a fellow sailor who only came to work with me on the ship for three months, and imparted deep psychic knowledge to me. At first I thought he might be a little insane. But, he came and left as though he might have been a human angel to teach me to use my personal power to heal. He’d push my psychic ability, and asked me lots of questions, never offering an answer, only the way to more intuitive knowledge. On this same voyage I met a Maori Shaman who told me of my destiny. I felt that everywhere I went I was being given a puzzle piece to my soul.

Q. Tell me about your Visions?

A. After meeting the Maori Shaman, I started to have dreams at night of the Holy Ones. They would tell me to touch rocks and they would turn into awakening people. I was lead over and over to help rouse others and offer restorative vitality.

About this time, Alina, my wife decided to go to the Doctor and got me a prescription for antibiotics. I wasn’t sick and I didn’t know why she did this. But she had an upset stomach for days and decided on her own that I was to stay home from one of my sailing journeys. When the head office received my antibiotics, I was sent home. That trip, 26 of the 27 crew on board the ship perished at sea.

After that, I knew I was to change my career. I began a grocery store with my wife. We happily did this for many years.

Q. Best Memory’s of Healings?

A. I do not keep track of the healings, as they may only be a voice on the telephone. I listen to their intonation and send energetic wave patterns. I work in the hospitals, and with many individuals to heal them on a soul level.

I have had much success, but it is only my goal to give liberation from strife.

Q. Tell me of your house cleansings?

A. Beginning at the physical level, if we clean our physical body and then our house. It all works together. I try to decipher and remove harmful rays of negative energies and radiation, which cause discomfort and ill health. Many times depression, insomnia, asthma, headaches and general stress tax an overworking body and mind. We live in a world of being bombarded with electromagnetic frequencies, the thoughts of others and the fear we carry inside. I come to energetically stimulate and reinforce the structure of living spaces.

Q. You like to say: Flowers in the garden makes for Beauty.

A. I believe that all humans come to earth to love and share with each other. The more we open our hearts, better the life experience. The future is to restructure our thoughts to bring healing for ourselves and our planet. It’s important we get our lives in sync with our spirit. And I do believe that we are always open for something new, all medicine, all technology, all hope, but for use of good positivity.

If you really want to make a difference in your life, you must have courage and trust. We also must make a beautiful earth. God is not separate, he gives us everything to be happy. Work with your body, mind and spirit – Be One.

Q. Why do you live in Seattle?

I felt I was led by Past Lives. When I am in the presence of Native American’s, they always say – “Welcome Home”. I knew Seattle was a very good place for me. I decided not to work on the sea, and I became a woodworker, specializing in fine furnishings. My woodworking shop burned down in 2009 and I took this indicator to conduct Shamanic work and help others full time.

Q. How does one contact you to use your services?

A. Call for an appointment, by phone or in person – Seattle or Travel. Call for workshop schedules.

Autumn Equinox, 2nd Harvest, September 21st

Mabon, (pronounced MAY-bun, MAY-bone, MAH-boon, or MAH-bawn) is the Autumn Equinox. The Autumn Equinox divides the day and night equally, and we all take a moment to pay our respects to the impending dark. We also give thanks to the waning sunlight, as we store our harvest of this year’s crops. The Druids call this celebration, Mea’n Fo’mhair, and honor the The Green Man, the God of the Forest, by offering libations to trees. Offerings of ciders, wines, herbs and fertilizer are appropriate at this time. Wiccans celebrate the aging Goddess as she passes from Mother to Crone, and her consort the God as he prepares for death and re-birth.

Various other names for this Lesser Wiccan Sabbat are The Second Harvest Festival, Wine Harvest, Feast of Avalon, Equinozio di Autunno (Strega), Alben Elfed (Caledonii), or Cornucopia. The Teutonic name, Winter Finding, spans a period of time from the Sabbat to Oct. 15th, Winter’s Night, which is the Norse New Year.

At this festival it is appropriate to wear all of your finery and dine and celebrate in a lavish setting. It is the drawing to and of family as we prepare for the winding down of the year at Samhain. It is a time to finish old business as we ready for a period of rest, relaxation, and reflection.
