Spiritual Life Coaching

February 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 180

What exactly is life coaching, besides the fastest growing field on the planet? And why would somebody want to hire another person to "coach" them on how to live their own life? Further still, what would be the benefits of experiencing "spiritually-based" life coaching rather than other types that may be available?

One general definition of life coaching is that it helps clients establish goals, and achieve them. Goals can be related to personal life, business and career, relationships, family, parenting, health, spirituality, and more. I have heard Dr. David Wolf say many times that "In the game of tennis, if I am committed to mediocrity, then I do not need a coach. The top players all have coaches, because they are committed to excellence." Life coaching is the process of committing to excellence in any or all areas of our lives by creating a structure of support and accountability, and an atmosphere of challenge and guidance. Coaches assist their clients in determining what they want to create with their life energy, and then actualize it.

It is often said in modern spiritual conversation that "we have all of our own answers." I am not discounting this, and at the same time, if we honestly assess our lives and where we are at, are we living one-hundred percent on purpose? Do we have the relationships that we want, the communication that feels empowering? Are we creating the income that we desire doing what we love? Inside of us, we often know what we need to do to create value in our lives, yet, human tendency can lead to procrastination, fear-based thinking, devaluing of ourselves, or of our dreams. When we make the choice to work with a life coach, we are making the choice to actualize that inner knowing, to leave no room to hide, or to play small. A good coach will know if we are playing the self-defeating games most of us play and will assist us to stay on track until we create what we want. And when we create what we want, then there becomes a whole new level of excellency to achieve. We raise the bar.

In a sense, I went to personal life coaching because I had goals in many of the life areas that I mentioned. And for me, part of my process was also to realize that there were times when achieving things on the material platform was not nearly as satisfying as I had thought it would be. When life coaching is spiritually based, then it will direct the client towards more eternal, or transcendental goals, which many of us are aware that we have. In this context, our relationship with work, with our families, with our partners becomes properly situated. These areas of our life begin to improve and increase in the service of our larger goal of spiritual awakening and self-discovery, and not simply as ends in themselves. When this occurs, it creates a much more profound consciousness about work, relationships, and all other areas of life.
