Now let’s get right to the heart of the matter. Here’s the what and why of my soulful approach to phone-based life coaching services.
We’re holistic beings, wired for growth.
Quantum physics tells us we’re energetic beings, “entangled” in life in fascinating ways. So dreams, depressions, diseases, accidents, addictions, relationship issues, synchronicities and more may signal what we need to know now. They may be invitations to correct our course, toward the healthy longevity that’s possible in 21st century life.
What’s more, exploring and choosing what we really want now—in this particular season of our lives—can keep us energized and inspired. This disrupts any tendencies to begin treading water and marking time until… what? What are we waiting for? The someday that never comes?
But how, given the realities of our lives?
As a life coach, I say the process is clear with the right support:
We can reflect, honestly and humbly, asking the right questions of the wisest, deepest, most determined parts of ourselves. Then when clarity comes, as it will, we can move forward, one foot in front of the other. It’s simple really, though not easy. We humans fear change and the unknown. (It isn’t just you.) That’s why the right kind of coaching matters.
Yes, we can set new goals, based on who we are today. Then we can take committed action on what we know is real for us. In the process, we can stay attuned to helpful inner and outer signals. They matter. And I’ll repeat, real support matters.
And why now?
Because then the journey really, really is the destination. We aren’t waiting for our real lives to begin… someday.
And by reflecting deeply first, we aren’t careening off toward this or that surface goal. No wonder doing so often falls apart, because parts of us may not be on board. On the other hand, when we do the work of getting truly clear and truly congruent, then look out, world!
The journey really, really is the destination.
And why a soulful approach?
My approach isn’t rainbows and fairy dust. But I am all about… wait for it… the soul, that highest Self in each of us. It’s the part of us that wants growth, at any age or stage of life. In fact, I say the soul wants maximum self-expression and satisfying contribution. And not just in the nebulous someday we may vaguely wish for, while heads-down in “gerbil wheel” situations that drain and discourage us.
What’s more, because the soul has its ways, we often grow to our full potential through the most painful, confusing seasons of our lives. The times that test us, the inner or outer conflicts that confound us, ultimately propel us to a brand new reality in which to live our best lives.
And that level of empathic, empowering facilitation is what I mean by a soulful approach to life coaching. Read more.
