  • Through her own personal journey to understand who she is… why she is here… where she came from… as well as finding her life’s purpose,  she understands the deep need for understanding one’s own life…  Mary is a spiritual/psychic healer who can access your soul story and help to remove and heal any blocks stopping you on your path to understanding your authentic self.

  • Gretchen Little Creativity Coach & Metaphysical Teacher
  • Gretchen has been aware of the unseen world all of her life, starting with listening to the nonverbal messages of the plants and rocks in her mom's garden to having an almost telepathic connection with animals. She was always very creative and sensitive, trained in music and art. In 1990, after discovering that if she prayed for healing for someone it often happened, she became interested in alternative healing modalities which led to the formal study of Healing Touch in 1991. Informally she taught herself to read the cards, go on shamanic journeys, perform magical rituals, and get messages from angels through writing. After practicing all of these things on her own for a decade she spontaneously went into a self initiation process that started just after 9/11 and ended just after Christmas 2001. When she came out the other side of that she found that she was getting very accurate details about people who had died. She had gone from being a highly intuitive mind reader to a full blown psychic medium. In the next few years she became a Reiki Master and a Licensed Massage Therapist. She began to experiment with drawing intuitive portraits of people's souls and spirit guides, only recently learning that that's considered a form of mediumship in the Spiritualist church.
  • Always concerned with the practical side of “woo-woo” stuff, she has made it her mission to give clients (and sometimes random strangers) the clearest, most pinpoint verbal evidence to show that she has a loved one on the line from the Other Side. She also does her best to give messages from angels, fairies, animal spirits – just about anybody in the Unseen Realms – that can be taken home and put to use immediately. She often ends up telling clients their soul purpose no matter what type of reading she started out with. This information comes through in a way that is not just an abstract idea but rather something that can be worked with right away. She has a distinct ability to be the voice for the client's Soul and let the Soul, itself, tell the client its heart's desire. Because of this, no two readings are alike, although there are similar patterns. She is committed to bringing magic back to every day life while encouraging everyone's True Self to express itself in the world. She is happiest when teaching people how to access their own inner genius.
 
  • Wild Indigo Coyote Trinity Oracle Card Readers & Teachers
  • Wild Indigo Coyote brings together the talents of 3 gifted psychics and energy healers, Deb Kuehne, Jennifer Bishop, and Lori Trumblee, who work together in an effort to bring healing, awareness, and understanding to those looking for answers! These fun ladies offer personal readings and healing sessions, along with house parties and special events.
  • One of their specialties is the Integrated Trinity Oracle Reading, where one person receives a reading from all 3 psychics at one time. This provides you with insightful guidance, learning how the past is influencing the present and how to use that information to create the future you want.
  • Together the ladies also offer a variety of classes on topics such as psychic development to ditch witchery.  The classes are always changing, bringing in new topics to discover.
 
  • Jennifer Bishop Usui Reiki Master, Psychic, Intuitive Card Reader, Fairy Shaman, Teacher
  • From the time I was little I would see things others didn’t, and know things that there was no way to have known. I kept this part of myself put away until I experienced a crisis point in my life when I was older. This led me to finally understand that not embracing and owning my authentic self had consequences.  I could continue to keep this part of myself locked away and continually feel less then, or I could choose to accept who I am, and then by allowing my roots to take hold through personal empowerment, be afforded the opportunity to help others.
  • I offer Shamanic Healing, Soul Retrieval, Psychic Readings, Tarot & Oracle Readings, Reiki Energy Healing with Chakra work, Dream Interpretation, Angelic Chakra Integration, House Blessing, and Spiritual Guidance.  I am also an Ordained Minister and Spiritual Healer through the SHES Organization.
  • By offering services, and teaching classes, my personal goal is to help others stand in strength, find a supportive community, and move forward in the spiritual evolution process.
  • In addition, I am incredibly fortunate to be a part of Wild Indigo Coyote.  Along with Deb Kuehne and Lori Trumblee, we offer Trinity Oracle Card Readings, Energy Healing, House Blessing/Cleansing, and a large variety of metaphysical classes!
  • I am driven at a foundational level to offer education and support to others, and I believe that academic understanding of our spiritual nature and that which surrounds us, leads to stepping fully into your personal power and the evolution of your best self.
 
  • Lori Trumblee Usui Reiki Master, Psychic, Intuitive Card Reader, Fairy Shaman, Teacher
  • I am a Reiki Master, Angelic Chakra Integration practitioner, paranormal investigator, & intuitive oracle card reader.
  • My first introduction to this metaphysical world was when I became a paranormal investigator with SJPI at Spirit’s Journey when it was open many moons ago.  A few years later I was introduced to Reiki and learned how to incorporate it when I was on paranormal investigations. After feeling how it helped the living and the deceased while we were on an investigation, I knew I wanted to go further down the proverbial metaphysical rabbit hole. The universe set up many chance encounters and I was put into contact with Jennifer Bishop and Deb Kuehne and we formed Wild Indigo Coyote to make handmade metaphysical products that can be used for personal practice or ritual work.
  • We have since expanded to offer services that incorporate all three of our talents such as the Integrated Trinity Oracle Card Readings and integrated healing sessions. We also teach various metaphysical classes at multiple locations in Cedar Rapids and in Mount Vernon. I will personally be offering Reiki, Angelic Chakra Integration, and personalized grids.
 
  • Deb Kuehne Reiki Master, Fairy Shaman, Paranormal Investigator, Intuitive Oracle Card Reader
  • Deb has been on this journey for a lifetime, and she continues to learn and grow.  She is a Reiki Master, Fairy Shaman, paranormal investigator and intuitive oracle card reader.
  • She is so proud to be part of Wild Indigo Coyote with Jennifer Bishop and Lori Trumblee. Together they offer Trinity Oracle Card Readings as well as various classes on Psychic Development.  Deb personally offers pendulum readings, Animal Reiki and intuitive card readings as well as Chakra cleansing and alignment using Tuning Fork Vibrational/Sound Healing.
  • Deb realized a lifelong dream nearly 25 years ago when her husband, Gary, and she moved out into the country where they share their home with their dogs and cats. They have timber and a beautiful creek on our land and Deb spends as much time as she can outdoors. She has always had a very deep love for nature and animals. Deb is also a beekeeper and one of her favorite places to meditate is sitting by the hives listening to the hum and breathing in the beautiful scent of the bees.
  • Sayde Yoga Instructor
  • Sayde has been practicing yoga for nearly two thirds of her life. In the beginning she just wanted to sleep better, but through the practice of yoga, she eventually discovered other benefits. With increased strength, calmness and serenity she came to understand the holistic union of mind, body and spirit.
  • Some of us need yoga to find peace of mind.
  • Some of us need yoga to build strength.
  • Some of us need yoga to regain the freedom we once felt in our bodies as children.
  • Some of us need yoga to learn how to just sit and breathe.
  • Each decade of her own practice has brought a new challenge, a chapter to share, deep understanding of the body that hosts our divine energy. Schooling brought a BA in Political Science with a minor in Theater Arts from the University of Iowa with many months abroad in Europe & Great Britain, certifications in basic yoga instruction, trust course and more, but her yoga practice has brought her schooling from the greater pool of knowledge.
