Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th Facts

Here are a few fun facts of Friday the 13th to get you in the mood that it’s a good day:

o The US Seal has 13 stars, bars, feathers in the eagle’s tail, 13 bars in one claw, 13 olive branches in the other.

o The Chinese, Pagans and others in ancient times marked time by the lunar cycle and calendar, thus 13 was considered a very lucky number.

o Egyptian philosophy believes life is a mission for the eternal afterlife. This journey walks through 13 levels, the first 12 in this life, at death the 13th level. The number 13 symbolizes death as glorious and attaining “real life”. But you must go through the 12 stages first.

o Fear of Friday the 13th is called Triskaidekaphobia.

o The fear of Friday the 13th started as a Norse Myth where 12 gods were having a party in Valhalla (Heaven) and capricious Loki came as the 13th guest and arranged for Hoder the Blind to shoot Baider the Beautiful with a mistletoe tipped arrow where he died and the earth grew dark.

Halloween – Samhain

BY TARA SUTPHEN

Samhain, the Pagan Sabbat called Halloween. Samhain is the middle point between fall equinox and winter solstice, the nights are getting darker now. Rest and Rejuvenate, Dream and Create, Plan and Recharge. We are given an opportunity to take the high road and not the low road. We are asked to step into our personal power as gracefully as we can. There is a surge about relying on yourself, on your knowledge, skills and tool set. You are having an opportunity to clear unneeded responsibilities and old karma. 

Halloween, also referred to as All Hallows’ Eve, became a holiday observed on October 31. It initiates the season of Allhallowtide, which lasts for three days and concludes on “All Souls Day”. Halloween Celtic origins began as Samhain in ancient Britain and Ireland. It was considered the beginning of winter. 

During Samhain festival, people believed souls, who had died would return to visit those they left behind and their homes. People set bonfires to ward off evil spirits, and they sometimes wore masks and other disguises to avoid being recognized by the ghosts. Many different characters were associated with this day as witches, hobgoblins, fairies, and demons.

Halloween Games:

  • dance to scary music and freeze when the music turns off
  • Everyone tells a scary story
  • Pass it on Ghost Story
  • Scary movies (age appropriate)
  • Go see the “Rocky Horror Picture Show”
  • Divination – Samhain is the beginning of the pagan year; Fire or Water Scrying – Tarot cards – Crystal Ball  
  • Make masks and costumes (represents your alter ego for the next year)
  • Create spells
  • Gather in a circle and express a desire and expel a fear
  • Chant or make wishes around a candle

Body Shame & Fitness

Transformation with Tara

Fridays 9am

Tara Sutphen CHT & Jason D McKean CHT will interview Kayla Van Egdom. She is a health coach, energy healer, author, and podcast hostess.

She is on a mission to help liberate women everywhere from food prison

and body shame.

Kayla’s struggle with weight and binge eating started when she was

seven years old. She spent two decades trying to fix her weight and

food issues by treating herself like a problem that needed to be

solved. She even became a personal trainer, thinking that would be the

solution.

The true solution was doing the deep inner work and choosing to use

her challenges with body image and emotional eating as a catalyst for

deep, personal transformation. She has worked with hundreds of clients

over the last seven years and has helped women heal their relationship

with food through her coaching and signature programs.

The nights are getting darker now. Rest and Rejuvenate, Dream and Create, Plan and Recharge. We are given an opportunity to take the high road and not the low road. We are asked to step into our personal power as gracefully as we can. There is a surge about relying on yourself, on your knowledge, skills and tool set. You are having an opportunity to clear unneeded responsibilities and old karma. 

At this time you are to make progress in your life and move toward wellness and to activate or recharge your career goals. 

Move toward advancement. Sit with your eyes closed and take a couple deep breaths, remove all pressure, heaviness and worries away.

  1. Relax your mind – Learn to Meditate

  5. Take a break every few hours – Revive
  6. Stay in touch with your Loved Ones – Be the love
  7. Read Books – brain stimulation
  8. VIII.Not always needing to be right – compromise or accept
  9. Be the bigger person – keep on track with your life

Here’s some tips on how to make clear decisions. 

  1. Use your Emotions – How do you Feel:

—We’re to work on creating our personal power this Full Moon Month. All Dreams are born in the dark as our days of light are limited, allow plans and goals to be developed. We can fail many times, but we’ll find what we are looking for eventually. If it’s people, places or things, we are to remain hopeful, polite and adventurous. It’s our birthright to survive and thrive in this world and allows us to become the very best we can be.

Honor all living things, for we are of the stag, and the salmon, and the bee; so destroy not life, save it be to preserve your own. ~ Scott Cunningham 1956-1993 Author of Magic

Full Harvest Moon

Full Harvest Moon

By Tara Sutphen

The Full Harvest Moon (Native American) at 17* Pisces will culminate September 10, 2022 2:59am PST/ 5:59am EST (Farmers Almanac). 

This Pisces Moon has asked us to quiet down and come back into our deeper self. Whether it be relaxing more, finding a hobby or reducing the worry, we are to find time for ourselves and reactivate. We’ve been in a fast paced world and being pulled in all directions. We are to look intently at what are blessings have been and be in gratitude. Even all the hard lessons, note what is good and kept you steady. 

We have descendants, associates, or acquaintances who rose to help or squelch us. We sometimes lose our way, we’ve been trying to keep up with “what” “why” or “who”. We can sometimes feel unprepared in dealing with others addictive traits or neurotic patterns. Our self-esteem plummets low on the scale when others bring us into their idiosyncrasies, and our confidence is shattered time and time again. Love can evade us or takes us on merry rides, we have to get back on track. Find time for simple pleasure, take baths, meditate, get a massage, silence our minds, draw, paint, do alone things. Get yourself a good book or write in your journal. No complaining, only solutions and your genuine desires and goals. No need to reflect at this time. You’re being asked to search for your peaceful place, to find rejuvenation, to count and recount your blessings. You’re getting ready for a brighter future and to master the goals you set before yourself.

How to Gain a Calm Mind:

  1. Don’t overthink
  2. Embrace your Fear
  3. Focus
