Feb's Solar Eclipse: the spiritual lessons of Aquarius and Leo for self-work

On Friday, Feb 16th, the world welcomed the Asian New Year and a Solar Eclipse, whoa!

In preparing for the Open Shamanic Journey class (held on the 18th), I was given the following lesson:

Re-establishing Our Anchor-Point

In last month's lessons, the students and I talked with Saturn and his representatives to help us with our goals for the new year, and to help adjust to the more frantic energies of 2018 (and His movement into Capricorn). 

This month, the lessons were about dealing with overwhelming emotional states, the loss of motivation, the inability for coping skills to be as effective as they once were, increasingly long lists of tasks that we can never complete (but feel compelled and impatient to work on), and the inability to balance our own hierarchy of needs with other's needs... it's been a MONTH.

We learned that the Solar Eclipse of Feb 16th mimicked the energies of the Solar Eclipse of August 2017. Any issues that weren't' healed or addressed were now being pushed front and center, and definitely caught many of us by surprise! The hard work and focus of January seemed to be lost underneath the flood of energies of February, and so we looked to the Spirits for guidance for our self-work.

Two signs majorly impacted by the astrological weather were Aquarius (Fixed Air, relationships to the community at large, archetypes, and the super-power of Detachment) and Leo (Fixed Fire, issues of self-worth, personal sovereignty, and the super-power of Banishment (dismissing things that are not truly helpful/fulfilling)).  In learning more about these spiritual energies of healthy detachment and healthy banishment, we discovered how to take away the self-imposed pressure on our lives (expectations of others Are NOT Manifest Reality). We also learned how to bring back our Core Perception of ourselves, which is where personal trust and personal sovereignty begins!

For those who were unable to attend, but are interested in this work, here are the Journey Lessons:
  1. Travel to your Helping Spirit and ask to be shown a issue/situation where you have lost your own detachment. Where have you become too enmeshed in details, outcomes, and your attempts to control?
    1. Ask for help in working with a healthy detachment technique (is it saying "No"to people, places, things, and/or ideas? Is it taking time before responding to a request (12-24 hours)? Is it processing out a demand on your energy/time, either out loud with others or internally via journaling?).
  2. Travel to your Helping Spirit and ask to be shown small-but-constant drains on your own energy. What people, places, things, and/or ideas are not worth your very creative and magical time & attention?
    1. Ask for help in discovering a healthy banishment technique (Is it saying "No" to something more permanently? Is it the spiritual use of the Epic Eyeroll? Is it more objectively understanding the motivations behind an action or issue, and realizing that the data points/outcomes have Nothing To Do With You?)
A few final lessons from Leo, that came through at the end of class:
"If you are Sovereign of your own queendom/kingdom, then you need to develop knowledge of what is needed, what is draining, and what your sacredness is actually about. Once you begin working on that, you can better evaluate things that are 'crossing the moat', crossing your Boundaries, and Banish/dismiss them effectively."
 If you have any questions about the lessons of this month, please contact me! I'd love to have you in class, and/or help mentor you through some difficult lessons in your own life.

Happy Monday, folks!

Last Friday's online healing ceremony was amazing-- there have been over 350 views already!

For those who missed it, or are waiting to make the time for it, here's the recording:

I hope that everyone who experiences the ceremony is able to purge the last of the new year's blahs, receive healing for their body, mind, and Soul, and re-focus on their goals for 2018.

Happy Imbolc! Online Healing Ceremony TONIGHT

Happy Imbolc, lovely readers!

TONIGHT, I will be hosting an Online Healing Ceremony, via Facebook Live. Last year, I held a similar event, and over 760 people have watched it and witnessed the power of spiritual healing over the medium of the Internet (Here's a link to last year's event: ).

Here are the details to be able to tune in at 6pm EST tonight:

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. 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 Friday evening, prepare yourself to receive 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 6pm, I will begin the Live event, and Facebook will immediately notify all persons who 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 Imbolc , and will be working closely with Brigid for this work. Brigid is a Celtic Goddess of Healing, Creative Intuition, and Smithcraft, and this holiday is sacred to Her within many Druid and other pagan spiritualities. 

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 ).

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