Psychopomp, Healer of the Dead
Workshop on Sunday, Dec 29th, 2019

This 5-hr intensive workshop will discuss the role of the Psychopomp in different Indo-European, Greek, Ancient Egyptian, and North American cultures, and how interested folks can learn techniques to help the Honored Dead connect with loved ones after they have passed.

The lecture will also describe the 5 stages of Grief (Kuebler-Ross) for both the living and the dying/dead, the dangers/side effects of this magical work, partially-guided journeys in order to practice newly-acquired skills & techniques, and how to add this work to clergy counseling, death doula work, and other healing modalities.

The cost of this advanced-level training is $50, and I ask that all interested students check in with Monika Coyote, either via email (lonelycoyote@healingcoyote.com) or via Messenger to this business page.

Upcoming Advanced Shamanic Workshop

2019: Working as Co-Healers of our American Culture/microcosm & macrocosm
Workshop on Sunday, Dec 15th, 2019

Are you paralyzed by increasing financial responsibilities, catastrophic climate trauma, and limited healthcare? Are you enraged by fascism, the loss of bodily autonomy, and the reduction in personal sovereignty? Do you want to combine your skills with the techniques needed to protect your home, family, friends, and employment? Are you ready to perceive the long-term patterns of change in our country, and work with the Spirits in order to adapt?

Our Nation is in need, and this working group is designed to help Answer The Call from our Spirits. We will meet together to Journey to our Helping Spirits, to hear Their words, and to creatively work together to forge strong bonds of power and healing. We will also problem-solve ideas for preparing for drastic change, knowing that together we will ENDURE.

This working group is open to the public, but you must contact the facilitator, Monika Healing Coyote, to ensure that you meet the pre-requisites (see below), and to receive the address. The cost of the working group is $20, payable via cash, check, Google Wallet, and/or PayPal.

PREREQ: In order to be effectively prepared for this type of work, students must have at least six months of Journey work/active meditation experience as well as a strong relationship with at least one Helping Spirit. Clairvoyance (i.e., psychic visualization skills) is not needed as the primary form of communication within the Otherworlds, but students should feel somewhat confident in their ability to discern the difference between Ego Projection and Divine Inspiration.

Samhain Druid shamanic healing ceremony

Happy Samhain blessings to you all! Below is my most recent online shamanic healing ceremony, in which we work together to survive our FEARS:


"What Power do we give our Fears, and how does it hold our potential hostage?" -- Chani Nicholas, new Moon in Scorpio newsletter
This online healing ceremony directly addresses our fears with techniques that help us to listen to our bodies, especially the Truth that has been trapped in our nervous systems (see Irene Lyon's trauma work for more info). Monika Healing Coyote facilitates a healing with the Spirits, overseen by the great goddess The Morrigan. Attendees are guided in a simple technique for listening to their body's Truth, and how to address overwhelming emotions that have been over-compartmentalized.

  3. At 7:00pm, 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.

Mid-October events, lectures, and community-building

The full moon in Aries arrived this past Sunday, and what a doozy it was! I've been busy these past few months, setting up new locations for classes, planning out the events for the rest of the calendar year, and providing lectures for TWO different online healing summits (my most recently-recorded lecture goes live tomorrow)!

Click here to register, you're not too late!
https://www.moderndis-ease.com/register-now

I've also enrolled in numerous "shamanic-CEU" classes (i.e., continuing education classes) that focus on TRAUMA; the physiology of it, the nervous system and brain response, emotional/mental regulation, and spiritual healing of our fight/flight/freeze responses. My healing work has deepened to include these new modalities, and I would love to speak with you about it-- just send an email!

https://collectivetraumasummit.com/
I am also facilitating more community pot lucks & rituals for those of you who may be interested. This time of year brings a lot of chaos and stress, no matter what family responsibilities and holiday events are celebrated. There will be a Samhain Pot Luck ritual within my home on Sunday Oct 27th (starting at 6:30pm), and a holiday party for students on Sunday Dec 1st (starting at 2pm). Please let me know if you are interested in attending!
 
If you need any support with the difficult-but-overall-empowering energies of Autumn, please email me for an individual, couples, and/or family ceremony appointment. Together we can address these energies within my new healing temple space in Wheaton, Maryland.

Many blessings on the rest of your month!

Your ancestors want you to know…
You are exactly as you were designed to be; right here, right now.
You are full of love.
You have the ability to help heal your family’s past and change the course of your family’s future.

Independence day online healing ceremony

If you've been paying attention to the themes underneath the fear-causing news articles, then you know of the major changes to the United States. There are numerous threats to our Personal Liberties, the health of our shared Lands, the safety of our Oceans, and to the health of our nation's People. Many aspects of our relationship to the Nation are BROKEN. What does this mean for our relationships to our Helping Spirits? The animals, plants, insects, and spirits of place suffer under our inability to maintain "ghosti", the hospitable & "right-relationship" with all Beings who share this physical world with us. Because so many humans are actively working against the healing of this country, there is a great need for spiritual- and magically-inclined citizens to bring Healing. This Druid shamanic healing ceremony will help us to renew, refresh, and refocus. We will ask our Helping Spirits to join with us and inspire through Hope & Faith, and direct healing to the egregore that saps our strength, divides our work with in-fighting, and feeds our fear and anxiety. Work your magics to not only heal yourself, but heal our country!

(recorded LIVE at 1100am EST, in Wheaton-Silver Spring, Maryland.

Solar Eclipse in Cancer

Today marks the Solar Eclipse in Cancer, wahoo! 

from Wikicommons

For those of us on East Coast time, it'll start around 3:15pm. I do not believe that we will be able to see much more than a general darkening of the sky for a few minutes, but it will certainly have a spiritual and emotional affect on our systems. For the month of July, we will have two eclipses, a solar eclipse in Cancer on July 2nd, and a partial lunar eclipse in Capricorn on July 16th. Here are some excellent words to help you prepare:
  • "Eclipses reveal what we need to heal within ourselves. Highly transformative, if we take it up on its offer, Eclipse Season marks a time where we renew our relationship to our life’s purpose. It marks a moment where we gain clarity about what we need to put a stop to. These eclipses, in particular, demand our finest efforts, making clear the conflict we have to work through. They encourage us to purge the emotional, psychological, and interpersonal toxins from our lives."
    • - Chani Nicholas
Today's eclipse will help us to pull back any damaging coping skills that were created from broken family patterns (Cancer's realm). None of us grew up in perfectly supportive families, and much of our self-work each lifetime is to figure out what supports us, and what has damaged us, so that we can heal it and work to not damage others. This eclipse will also poke at our feelings of "home" and what that means (i.e., is it our constructed environtment? the people we surround ourselves with? our blood relatives? our chosen famliy members?). Today sets the entire tone for the month, so please email me if you need any help.

Online Independence Day shamanic healing ceremony

On Thursday, July 4th, at 11:00am, I will be facilitating an Online Shamanic Healing Ceremony via FB Live, in honor of Independence Day here in the United States.

If you've been paying attention to the themes underneath the fear-causing news articles, then you know of the major changes to our country. There are numerous threats to our Personal Liberties, the health of our shared Lands , the safety of our Oceans, and to the health of our nation's People. Many aspects of our relationship to our nation are broken and skewed towards consumption.

What does this mean for our relationships to our Helping Spirits? The animals, plants, insects, and spirits of place suffer under our inability to maintain "ghosti", the hospitable & "right-relationship" with all Beings who share this physical world with us. Because so many humans are actively working against the healing of this country, there is a great need for spiritual- and magically-inclined citizens to bring Healing.

We will ask our Helping Spirits to join with us and inspire through Hope & Faith, and direct healing to the egregore that saps our strength, divides our work with in-fighting, and feeds our fear and anxiety. Work your magics to not only heal yourself, but heal our country!

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 mark yourself as "Going" on this event!

For those who have not participated in a FB Live event before, the steps are as follows:

Guardian spirits

(lecture notes from the most-recent Open Shamanic Journey class, (c) Monika Healing Coyote, 2019)

Kitsune fox guardians, from Wikicommons

Guardian spirits are a class of spirits found within all spiritual/religious cultures. They can protect structures, property, a person's physical/mental/emotional health, and/or the family/community/clan/tribe.  The following are a few basic examples of these spirits:

  • Celtic/Druid: jewelry, tattoos, clothing, statues, and other handcrafted items would represent the guardian spirit(s), and would either travel with the indigenous Celtic tribes, or they would remain inside a home to protect the land and structures.
  • Greek & Roman: the genius loci (Spirit of Place/Dwelling) would be granted a special place near the front door of the home 
  • Japanese/Shinto: there are many shrines dedicated to the kami (indigenous spirits of the islands) of an entire town/area/prefecture, and different goshuin for each spirit within the shrine area
  • Thailand: these cultures build entire Spirit Houses outside of a structure in order to ensure its protection
  • Judeo-Xtian: photographs, statues, and other iconography can either be outside of a structure or carried within a person's clothing
  • Non-Religious: folklore and superstition give information about lucky charms, rabbits' feet, jewelry, flags, and other paraphenalia as guardians of property, towns, states, and countries.
Celtic guardian spirit on jewelry, from Wikicommons
Generally, there are three areas that many guardian spirits have domain over:
  1. Home or other specialized structure (i.e., town hall, longhouse, church)
  2. The entrance to a new town/city/state/country
  3. The location of a family group/community/nomadic tribe/individual person
As the peoples of the world grew in population across the globe, guardian spirits were needed to protect the food sources and watering holes, the spiritual centers, the homes, and their physical & spiritual bodies. These needs continue into modern times, with the protection of our person, our families, our jobs, our finances, and our homes.

Within indigenous European and Druid magics, there are three main steps of reciprocity when seeking out a new Guardian Spirit to work with (or introducing oneself to an already-established spirit within a religious context):
  1. Introduction and offerings to the Guardian Spirit
    1. Just as with any new coworker, family member, and/or friend, it is extremely important to first introduce yourself to a new Spirit, and to research it's preferred type of offerings.
      1. Offerings are important for many reasons: they are a gift of hospitality to a new Spirit, which can make communication easier between you two. They also provide energy to the Spirit, so that it can work its magics to help guard, guide, and protect you. And it honors the historical concept of sacrifice-- you have given up something that you have in order to provide for another.
  2. Statement of Intent and housing container
    1. These steps are often missed by magical- and spiritually-trained folks. You must have a very clear idea on the type of work that you'd like to do with your Guardian Spirit. For example, a Lion spirit is very protective, but different people will have different needs for their protection (one may need personal protection when walking home alone at night, while another might want protection from coworker gossip at the workplace). If you do not engage the guardian spirit in a conversation about your needs, and if the Spirit is willing to work with you on them, then the protection will not be effective.
    2. Finding a container in the physical realm for the Guardian Spirit is mandatory. You are asking a Spirit to work with you both in this physical realm and in the Otherworlds, and there must be a container that bridges these two areas.
  3. Gratitude practice and continual offerings
    1. As with all human and non-human relationships, reciprocity flows with the main emotion of Love. For those that have not yet read the information on the five main love languages, here is an article that can summarize for you.  At the core of this magic, you are creating/recreating a relationship with a Spirit, in the hopes that it will provide things that you cannot do for yourself. The initial connection to a Spirit is only the first step; the continued layering of offerings within the passing of linear time (which exists in the physical realm) can help to build reserves of energy for your Guardian Spirit, so that if/when needed, it has enough power to protect you from harm.
If you are interested in learning more, and possibly working together on building a new relationship with a Guardian Spirit, please contact me and we can set up a mentoring session for individualized teaching.

If you'd like to try and journey on your own, here are the prompts that may be effective in setting up this relationship:
  • Step One: Creative Problem-Solving: What do I want a Guardian Spirit to protect me from?
    • Nightmares/sleeping issues
    • physical body protection
    • mental health/reality-testing
    • home/work/office protection
    • spiritual protection
  • Journey #1 Ask your helping spirit to introduce you to a guardian spirit who is focused on the above-mentioned task.
    • Ancestor, Nature Spirit (animal, plant, tree, mountain, lake, etc.), Deity, Angel, or other
    • Talk about yourself! Thank it for agreeing to work with you.
  • Journey #2 Ask the guardian spirit
    • How do you want to be honored?
    • What physical representation do you wish to be housed in?
    • What is your preferred offering? How often do you need offerings to maintain your vigil/protection over me?

Don't forget to thank the Spirit for its powers of protection, and to continually maintain the relationship. Once your needs are met, and you no longer with to work with this Guardian Spirit, honor its time, energy, power, and sacrifice through ritual, and thank it for working with you. All things work in the Otherworlds through thought, emotion, energy, and reciprocity, and if you have need of a helping spirit again, these techniques will help you to maintain a right and ethical relationship with the Spirits.

The magical technology of Goshuin 朱印 stamp books in Japanese Shinto practice

Within the Shinto religious practice, prayers and offerings between us and the Kami (spirits) are marked with special stamps (called Goshuin 朱印). Each temple has a different mark, different sacred calligraphy, and switches the artistry on a regular basis. It marks the date, the Japanese Era, the temple/shrine location, and the Kami spirit who received the offerings.
Magically, these stamps honor the exchange between the person offering prayers/money/gifts to the Kami, and the Kami's hopeful agreement (within about a year) to answer the prayers.
It is a wonderful way to stay in touch with the Spirits of Place when back home!
(This particular stamp is from the Takeo Shrine dedicated to the 3,000 year old Camphor Tree near Takeo-cho in Saga, Kyushu Island, Japan.  (c) Monika Healing Coyote 2019

Upcoming May Events

Happy & loving greetings to you all,
 
Welcome to the blog article for the upcoming month of May, and the season of Beltaine! In this post is the most recent Earth Day online healing ceremony, a free & informal Plant Walk at Baltimore Herb Festival, and the next open shamanic journey class.

This past month of April was a very painful one for me, and one of the worst for my physical health. For the first time in my entire life, I have developed strong, constant allergies to many of my beloved trees. My allergy meds were completely unable to keep up with my inflammatory reactions, and my daily health suffered, my business suffered, my high level of energy/strength suffered, and my ability to socialize suffered. I had no idea that reduced breathing levels would have such a profound impact on EVERYTHING!
I am most brokenhearted about my work with all of you; I've had to re-schedule numerous appointments, cancel workshops, sing through itchy throats and limited breath support, and push much of my emails/administrative work to the side. I never even got a newsletter out for April, rawr! Moving to Montgomery County has increased my exposure to crazy amounts of pollen, as well as constant pollution and ozone (MoCo & surrounding counties all FAILED the American Lung Association's air quality tests). And the heavy mold exposure from my previous home certainly hasn't fully healed yet...

However, I am hoping that the new medications that I am on will help me turn the corner, and bring me back to my full state of awesomeness. I am visiting with my sister for the next week, and I will return refreshed, renewed, and with a new focus for our Summer together!
If you need any support with the difficult-but-overall-empowering energies of this month, please email me for an individual, couples, and/or family ceremony appointment. Together we can address these energies within my new healing temple space in Wheaton-Silver Spring, MD.

Many blessings on your month!

Aaaaaaaooooooo,

For those that missed the Earth Day healing on Facebook Live a few weeks ago, here is the recording at my YouTube Channel! You are welcome to watch this at any time, and the ceremony is set up so that the Spirits will join you while you view it:

Online Druid Earth Day Healing Ceremony coming soon!

On Monday, April 22nd, at 7:30pm, I will be facilitating an Online Shamanic Healing Ceremony via FB Live, in honor of Earth Day here in the United States.

There are an overwhelming number of blog articles, news stories, social media links, and educational materials that discuss all of the threats to our Earth Mother. Additionally, the animals, plants, insects, and spirits of place suffer under our inability to maintain "ghosti", the hospitable & "right-relationship" with all Beings who share this physical world with us.

Many of us try to help, through recycling, trash pick-up in parks, donations to non-profit agencies, researching our shopping products and making changes in diet to foster a more ethical relationship with our food sources. But it can feel like we are plugging up a broken dam with band-aids, and many are actively working against our healing of this world.

This Druid shamanic healing ceremony will help us to renew, refresh, and refocus. We will ask our Helping Spirits to join with us and inspire through Hope, Faith, and direct healing to the Egregore that saps our strength, divides our work with in-fighting, and feeds our fear and anxiety. Learn more about the Leviathan that is the face of this threat, and work your magics to not only heal yourself, but heal our Earth!

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 this e
vent!

For those who have not participated in a FB Live event before, the steps are as follows:

  1. Go to "Monika Healing Coyote Shamanism" and ensure that you have "Liked" my Page.
  2. On Monday evening, prepare yourself to participate in your own healing & power/energy retrieval. Whatever you need to do to feel comfortable in your room/home/space, do it. Pajamas, tea, a small snack, snuggling a pet or stuffed animal, 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 7:30pm, 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.

Finally, I am asking for a small donation from each participant for this work; a minimum of $15 (which can be paid via PayPal towards my email address: lonelycoyote@healingcoyote.com , or use the link here).

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