What is a Spiritual Coach?
We have all heard of coaches before. They inspire and motivate people to achieve their dreams and goals in life. It doesn't matter in what area, coaches are found within every field of expertise, sport or hobby. A spiritual coach is a person who offers spiritual guidance to empower others and help them manifest their goals. They often take on the role of a mentor, advisor, motivator, counsellor or teacher. You do not need to practice any kind of religion to work with a spiritual coach. Most of us go through life without knowing our true purpose. Nothing can be more unrewarding and unsatisfying than not knowing where you want to go and what you would like to do with the life and talents you were given. Discovering who we are and why we are here is of great importance to any one of us. A spiritual coach can help people turn their life around. Anyone can benefit from having a spiritual coach, especially those who are highly sensitive to their surroundings. Their goal is to give you tools which can be used in your everyday life to reinforce spiritual development and find true happiness within.
A spiritual coach is able to help you tap into your unlimited powers by supporting you, offering practical tools and teaching new skills. By introducing you to the laws of the universe such as the law of attraction and the law of gratitude they are able to help you make positive changes in your thinking, attitude, beliefs and actions which might be holding you back. By guiding you to a place of knowing you are worthy and deserving of everything you want, you are able to more easily manifest your dreams and achieve your goals. We all go through negative experiences whether we lose a loved one, our job or our home, we go through a divorce or a mid-life crisis. Some of us experience anxiety, extreme fear or phobia's which hold us back from doing those things we love most. A spiritual coach offers help on many levels but they put emphasis on guiding you on your spiritual journey.
A spiritual life coach has no judgements or negative opinions about your way of tackling life and it's challenges. A session with a spiritual coach consist out of talking, answering questions, taking actions and working on restoring the confidence in yourself. Some spiritual coaches ask their clients to keep a dream journal or make wish lists.
The benefits of working with a spiritual coach vary from gaining a new perspective on life and rediscovering your identity to enhancing decision making skills, overcoming subconscious blocks and finding balance in the middle of chaos. A spiritual coach can also help you strengthen your intuition, save time and energy, use meditation in a constructive and helpful manner, find your passion and take responsibility for your life and actions.
The relationship with a spiritual life coach is based on mutual trust and respect. When choosing a spiritual coach that suits you best it is highly advised to talk things through before becoming more involved and to decide whether there is a connection worth exploring.
Once the spiritual coach and the client are on the same page, meaning the spiritual coach is aware of the current situation of the client and the client feels comfortable pursuing the relationship, they can then begin setting up a treatment process. Together they can figure out what helps the client focus, feel better about themselves, clarify what they want in life, create a plan and how to grow on a spiritual level. These sessions will gradually reveal what is creating obstacles or holding you back, in some cases our limited beliefs are the main reason these obstacles even exist. Once both have established what those reasons are it is time to take action and move forward. It is important to keep in mind that this kind of coaching is not the same as therapy. Rather than analysing the past, a spiritual coach will focus on the here and now, present challenges and how to face obstacles in the future.
