It is my mission to be there for all families through all walks of life in a harmonic Way that accommodates All Faiths. I realize that not all individuals are affiliated with a particular house of Worship, some families are of mixed faiths, & some practice their spirituality on more of a individual basis. Your ceremony will be customized to your beliefs, values, & your faith. Every kind of Service, wether how ornate or simple it may be, is given with the upmost complete care & nurturance, pure & deep thought, & total attention toward your intention on creating an incredibly special experience saturated with a healing energy that  blesses us with the Beauty of miracles.

 

Mother-To-Be Ceremony

& Welcoming New Soul to Earth 

 

A  Blessing Way Rites of Passage Ceremony is given in honor of the Mother-to-Be, to recognize & respect the powerful & transformative gate She will walk through.  This ceremony also honors the new Soul transitioning into Earth. Generations of Women are gathered to circle an anchor of support, strength, inspiration, & internal preparation for Birth. Beautiful group unifying rituals to bring blessing to the Mother & Child are performed as she is surrounded by love & tranquility. The setting is a spiritual alternative to a baby shower. The event could be catered,  potluck, or appetizers & refreshments only. The Women honor the Mother with poems, prayers, songs, & words.  Painting of the belly, gifting, group practices that acknowledge the long line of Mothers that we all came from, & other artistic & heart-warming expressions are all integrated. Maalika-Shay will facilitate the rites of passage ceremony while working closely with the Mothers family to establish an ideal & sacred experience for all. She will include a special Blessing for the Mother & child individually as part of the ceremony & assist the Mother in all her desires & needs.

House Banishing & House Blessing

 

A House Banishing & House Blessing is a solution to remove unwanted, toxic debris out of your sanctuary and to invite new, pure, & protected  energy into your immediate surroundings. Past emotions, past thoughts, past actions performed on the property should be purified anew to invite the gift of God's Loving Goodness, Prosperity, Health, & Peace in. A House Blessing can be part of a house-warming party or held in an intimate setting with only the immediate family as a way to celebrate & consciously sanctify the Property by offering Purification & Blessing to the householders & House.

Each room is addressed with prayers & invocation, spiritual tools, and purification techniques. These two services typically go hand in hand but can be treated independently pending on area of concern & the complexity of it for the householders. I offer Completely customized services to address your needs accordingly.

 

House Banishing/Blessing Ceremony: $250 for general ceremony.  For complicated circumstances, my time is $75 per hour after initial  3hrs.

Spirit Obsession Ceremony

 

Sometimes we do things we do not wish to do, things against our will & contrary to our ideals. A silent influence seems to control us & the thoughts & conditions of something or someone have great influence over our actions & speech. A Spirit can throw its thoughts upon the mirror of our mind, causing us to act out the Spirits expression. There are two kinds of obsession: one is when one soul imparts qualities into another, & the other is when a soul causes us to accomplish some deed. The Spirit or the consciousness of the Spirit has no other means of expression, so it seizes upon a persons weak mind & will as a means of control. This is a prayerful ceremony that focuses on cutting pathological cords, the strengthening of ones Willpower, & releasing influence by consultation, fragrance, fire, water, sound, prayer, energy medicine, invoking the Name of God, healing energy, & by reflecting upon the heart of the obsessed with Wisdom & Transformation. The ceremony is performed off-site & the length & complexity of it greatly depend upon each individual circumstance. This ceremony addresses the levels of obsession only & is not intended for Spirit Possession.

 

There are numerous details in order to receive this ceremony which will be explained by phone. The rate is $75 per every hour invested, from ceremony to counseling. The length depends upon the nature of the ceremony, internal & external preparation time, mental/emotional effort-exhaust, shakti-energy, & my life-force levels that is necessary to give you.  A thorough ceremony usually lasts up to 3hrs composed in in 7 stages of Invoking/Protection/Building Willpower/Rattling Attachment/Detaching Influence/Banishing  limitation/Sealing Wholeness/Sanctification. There is a traditional Sufi Ceremony that takes under an hour if you are interested in a more simplified experience.

The Light of God Surrounds me.

The Love of God Enfolds me.

The Power of God Protects me.

The Presence of God watches over me.

Wherever I Am, God Is.

Cleanse this Home, Remove the Past,

Ive Found my Happiness at long last.

Fill this home with Joy & Love,

Send your Blessings from Above.

Life Transitions Series

In Dying & Death

 

The Life Transitions Program is in the setting of a Private Yoga Therapy Session, generally committed to a minimum of 12weeks for individuals in generally fair condition to get a comprehensive experience of Greater Understanding. It is completely up to you regarding how deep & at what pace you would like to process & explore. The intention is to experience a series of self inquiry practices, meditations, breathwork, & verbal sharing around death, that allows a more graceful & detached view of this natural part of life. The Self-Inquiry practices help to release any fear or resistance around the topic of Dying, Death, & the hereafter.

 

This Program need not be limited to someone in a critical state, but rather, provides great benefit to all people, as it prepares & brings peace & maturity upon the subject. This concentrated type of inner work brings greater understanding & respect to the process of Death. We honor & acknowledge the full cycle of Life, from birth to death, & not allow taboo mentality, fears, or illusion to get in the way of exploring & receiving the Wisdom, Truth, & Authenticity that arises out of these mindful contemplations.

 

Death is equally just as great of a transformation as Birth. This program helps us to grasp, touch, & explore this mysticism so we can confront what needs to be addressed & reach a comforting  peace within our selves, others, & with the earth.  We can experience this while we are in the fullness of life & also when our time comes to let go. The process of letting go takes practice, so its best to start when we are alive & well. Private Session Pricing for this specific work is $50 for every 2 hours invested.

End of Life Rituals

 

End of life rituals bring reconciliation, acceptance, & peace for the dying & also the surviving loved ones. Simple, intimate, & personalized rituals that make sense and are resonant to the dying will be offered to help heal the pain of letting go. End of life rituals are unique & significant to each individual and highly respect & honor the persons belief system & religious point of view. Some examples of end of life rituals include intentional way of letting go of  unresolved issues such as anger, remorse, or sadness. These particular kind of rituals can deeply benefit all people in various stages of the dying process & are not exclusively limited to those on their death bed.  Other end of life rituals suited for those in their last hours are are purification rituals like cleansing & anointing the body with warm water & aromatic oils, sweet music & song, making an alter composed of the symbology of what the persons life, love, & legacy is, as well as an offering of poetry, readings, affirmations or prayers if applicable. Please contact me if you would like to explore any of these healing kind of rituals during your unwinding stage or if you have a loved one whom you would like to make the act of dying not only peaceful, but beautiful & sacred.

 

Dying Rites & Blessing 

 

I will provide Ministry & Blessing at the time of death based upon the person & families faith, vision, & needs. Generally,  a ministering of preparation & reconciliation is administered to the dying. Others join me in prayer or affirmation, laying on of hands & anointing, holy communion or taking a symbolic act that unifies the environment & people within love & peace, such as encircling the dying hand in hand, heart in heart. Commendation & if it applicable, specific affirmation or prayers to be said after death is offered.
