What config are you using? That's where magic like that is bound.

xmonad's parent process needs to be a part of a dbus. In your .xinitrc
or .xsession or wherever, use "dbus-launch xmonad". Then all the
processes that are children of xmonad (or whatever you execute with
dbus-launch) will be able to communicate via that session bus.
