Coyote totem is also a subtle guide

to ‘antioxidants’ both physical & spiritual

in a sense that coyote knows

what is pure in nature to eat and drink.

By advising us to shed all pride in fear of failure

& replace ego with humility as a willing spiritual fool,

putty in our makers hands.

Clay that he molds with love: perfect imperfections.

Lady Coyote by Ellen Jewett Feather of Me

As we learn to deliver our will to Great Spirit GOD

we free ourselves to trek on a lone survivor path

where all is observed, all is offered

& all is imprinted on our minds, hearts, spirits.

We just need to listen, watch, breathe & feel.

God Great Spirit is in charge.

Creator lovingly corrects any error we might make,

with just what creator is best at: Creation.

Coyote myth includes that the star constellations

were created by him in a haphazard  fashion,

what he did initially upset everyone with fear

but creator turned coyote’s work

into the colorful and more meaningful creation.

Many long versions of this myth and

other coyote folk myths are available online.

Coyote woman medicine is sweet

& healing like a ripe pomegranate of healing love.

Her dreams can heal a broken heart sick from society.
