July news & workshops

Happy hot July to you all,

Welcome to the newsletter for this month! Below, you'll find information about upcoming classes, my Facebook Events Page, my YouTube Channel of recorded healing ceremonies, and more.

The major spiritual impetus for this month is the Wacky Wild Astrology of July! Five planets appear to be Retrograde (Rx) this month, with Mercury Rx occurring on the 26th. Add to this a New Moon Eclipse on the 12th, and we may all be feeling quite overwhelmed! My dear friend Diotima has written a lovely and inspiring article about the energies of the next two months, and I know that I'll be re-reading it often!
 

Recently, I started to compile a listing of different local & trusted spiritual practitioners, retail stores, online diviners, and alternative healers. Please keep your eyes open for an additional email from me this month (and if you would like to be added, please let me know!).

As always, for those that are interested in mentoring, divination, house clearings, and/or personal healing appointments, I have numerous open days during the week, and some weekend slots still open; I'd love to work with you to create a personal and individual ceremony.

I am looking forward to working with everyone this month, and I'm excited to help folks grow their relationships with their Helping Spirits. Have a great few weeks, and see ya'll soon!

Aaaaaaaooooooo,
Monika Healing Coyote

Sacred Sound Healing Ceremony (Midsummer 2018)

Hello all!

The online Summer Solstice Sound Healing Shamanic Ceremony was a wondrous success! Although the video quality isn't as clear as other uploads, the ceremony was powerful and instructive.

We learned about sacred chants from different cultures, invocations to deities, sacred prayer songs (Ragas) in Hindu/Vedic traditions, and worked with both Coyote and The Morrighan to transmute the pain/trauma of our world, give voice to the grief of those who aren't being witnessed, and support & heal ourselves for the Summer ahead.

Please enjoy this video, and refer back to it when you need healing for yourself, others, and/or want to provide healing to the greater world!

Aaaaaaoooooo!

Suicide in the United States

(shared from numerous websites, unknown image creator)
Whatever you are going through, whatever you are dealing with, please remember that #mentalillness is Not Your Fault, your thoughts are not always true/rational (your brain can lie to you, if you don't have the coping skills to recognize it), and that Willpower Doesn't Solve Suicidal Thinking!
I am a firm believer in the power of All Medicines, both Shamanic and Psychiatric, to help manage and support #mentalhealth. Having a full treatment team backing you up is a wonderful way to help you to not feel alone.
The hardest thing to do is to convince yourself to Ask for Help (you are not "being a bother", "faking it", and/or "making a big deal out of nothing".) Suicidal depression is very alienating, and the brain chemistry will bring up all sorts of thoughts to increase your dissociation and disconnection.
I will NEVER victim-blame you, gaslight you, or judge you for what you are feeling/experiencing. I will witness your pain, your trauma, and your crisis, and Not Be Afraid (in fact, we can be "in the muck" together). I can help with some reality-testing of your emotions, and if needed, we can seek out additional support together (it helps to have an advocate who understands the mental health system in the States).
I see you, I am with you, I love you.

Upcoming Sound Healing Shamanic Online Ceremony June 19th!

(c) Monika Healing Coyote, 2015
On Tuesday, June 19th, I will be hosting an Online Healing Ceremony via FB Live. Recently, I attended an intensive Sound Healing/Shamanic Medicine Melodies Workshop in NYC (part of this program: https://www.opencenter.org/sound), with the amazing Silvia Nakkach (https://www.opencenter.org/silvia-nakkach). Much of my shamanic healing work involves sound, rhythm, chants, invocations, and sacred songs. This ceremony will be a continuation of the specialized work that I do, both for the greater healing of all participants, and for the Earth Mother.

This event is open to everyone, and all you need is a WiFi- or data-enabled device in which to stream the audio/video feed. To ensure that you receive updates and instructions, please login to Facebook and mark yourself as "Going" on the event!

For those who have not participated in a FB Live event before, the steps are easy!

  1. Go to "Monika Healing Coyote Shamanism" and ensure that you have "Liked" my Page.
  2. On Monday evening, prepare yourself to participate in both your own and the Earth's healing. Whatever you need to do to feel comfortable in your room/home/space, do it. Pajamas, tea, a small snack, turning the cell phone off, etc. Many folks like to take notes as the Ceremony progresses, and to write down any insights that come during the healing process. 
  3. At 7pm, I will begin the Live event, and Facebook will immediately notify all persons who have marked "Going", and have "Liked" my Page, that I am going live.
  4. Click on the Notification, and a video screen will open up for you to experience the Healing Ceremony.

I am offering this Healing Ceremony during the holiday of Midsummer (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midsummer), and will be working closely with the Earth Mother, the Spirits of Nature, and our own cultural deities & spirits!

Finally, I am asking for a small donation from each participant for this work; a minimum of $11 (which can be paid via PayPal towards my email address: lonelycoyote@healingcoyote.com , or use this link).

I can't wait to work with you all, and break through the constraints of space & time for Healing!

Beltaine Season Blessings!

Happy May greetings to you all,

Welcome to Summer in the Northern Hemisphere! In this mini-post, you'll find information about upcoming classes, my Facebook Events Page, my YouTube Channel of recorded healing ceremonies, and more.
 

This past April 23rd, I hosted another Online Healing Ceremony, via Facebook Live (event information posted here). The ceremony focused on healing our Earth Mother, and remembering our inter-dependent relationships with Her. She spoke some powerful words during the Ceremony, helping us to recognize our apathy and disconnection, but gave of her healing love to helps us regain our creative fire, faith, and hope.
 
The classes for this month are next Sunday and the last Sunday. The Open Journey class will be hosted by Neighborhood Acupuncture in Laurel, on the 13th, and the Advanced Level class will be held at my home in Columbia on the 27th. Our topics include working with Sacred Mother Goddesses of different cultures, and using Creative Problem-Solving/Questioning Skills in order to clarify information received from the Otherworlds.

Additionally, for those who have received their Usui Reiki I attunement/certification, I will be teaching Usui Reiki II on Monday, May 28th. This is a full 8-hour class, and we will be learning three symbols for Power, Emotional Healing, and Distance Healing. If you are interested in learning about this type of healing work and cultural exchange (this system originated in Japan & Tibet), please contact me!

As always, for those that are interested in mentoring, divination, house clearings, and/or personal healing appointments, I have numerous open days during the week, and some weekend slots still open; I'd love to work with you to create a personal and individual ceremony.

I am looking forward to working with everyone this month, and I'm excited to help folks grow their relationships with their Helping Spirits. Have a great few weeks, and see ya'll soon!

Aaaaaaaooooooo,
Monika Healing Coyote

Earth Day Shamanic Healing Ceremony

This past Monday, the online community gathered in order to work healing for our Earth Mother. A powerful Grid was created, with stones, crystals, staves, sacred woods, and feathers:

The live ceremony was recorded, and is available on both Facebook via my Page, and YouTube. This ceremony of healing was created with the intent to witness the Truth of the Earth Mother's words, to gift her with healing, and to receive healing in return (and grow our interdependent relationships). Space & Time are funny concepts in ritual space, and so this healing work will be effective whenever or wherever the ceremony is viewed:


I honor and thank all those who've attending this ceremony, and I am grateful to the Helping Spirits for this work! Aaaaaoooooooo!
