What you put your attention and energy into, you actually draw into your life. Coaching is designed to support you to:
* Clarify your intent, values, and goals
* Plug the energy blocks that are leaking your power
* Strengthen your confidence in yourself
* Transition through or create a crossroads in your life
* Take action towards your dreams, desires, and goals
* Access more joy, satisfaction and possibility!
We are in a constant process of change, moving through and letting go of what no longer serves us, and embracing and moving towards what's next for us. Where we often get stuck in this process is when we try to generate our future based on what worked for us in the past. The problem with this is that though it worked before, it was limiting and will only produce more of the same. In order to grow into what's next what's often needed is a shift in who and how we're being, which will naturally lead you to take different actions and get different results.
What's emerging for you in your life?
If you could have a major breakthrough in life,
what would it be?
What have you not been willing to let go of
that's keeping you stuck?
Revealing and letting go of old thoughts and patterns that are holding you back will allow more room for clarity, fresh ideas, and innovative actions. When you grow yourself as a person, you naturally grow your results!
Do you have a dream or vision of yourself and yet don’t know how to move it forward? Or perhaps you start to move forward, but get sidetracked or lose motivation before any real progress is achieved.
Are you confused about what's next for you? Maybe you have ideas but no concrete plan, or a plan that you never seem to implement. Or perhaps you have a business and would like to make some changes to make it less stressful and more profitable, enjoyable, and fulfilling.
Do you feel like you've hit a plateau in your life? Perhaps things are just fine and yet you’re ready for something bigger. Maybe you’ve outgrown some areas of your life and it’s time for an update to reflect who you really are now.
Part of the struggle of being human is that we often live much of our lives in reaction to circumstances. There can be a feeling of protection, isolation, and limited options. It’s perfectly human to avoid danger and to try to control life by staying within our comfort zone. It just doesn’t turn out to be satisfying or fun. It’s familiar, predictable, and safe. One of the goals of coaching is to allow you to gain a new perspective other that the one you might be stuck in. If you can see yourself, others, or your circumstances differently then you are free to take a different action and thereby get a different result.
As a coach I support clients to build the skills that allow them to better distinguish and come from their most resilient and powerful selves. I believe in flow, abundance and momentum. When you are connected and committed, the entire force of the universe will come to your aid.
What most people do is confuse flow with being comfortable. They go right for “effortless” without being committed. They avoid action because it seems to take such effort. By avoiding action, they end up being in reaction to life, moving away from action, and actually manifesting resistance. The key to achieving is to get more powerful at transforming resistance. With this skill, you are free to move towards your visions, goals, and desires with less effort.
By transforming energy blocks and outdated thinking you can create a life that is simpler, less stressful, and more meaningful. With less resistance, you will move more powerfully towards that which you truly desire. Sometimes we don’t take the time to fully examine the choices we’re making and not making. Living in default mode can easily lead to finding ourselves stuck with a life we never really chose. Perhaps now is the time to look at what's stopping you from living life more fully and to work to overcome the habits that slow you down or get in your way. The result of this work is an authentic and meaningful life lived on purpose with access to more joy, clarity, focus, power, prosperity, and being.
What is coaching?
Most of us have so many intentions running around in our monkey minds yet we often get side-tracked, stuck, or simply don’t have enough focus, time or energy to follow through on all of them. Coaching is a powerful partnership that can support you to step into your deepest intent more fully. It provides structure, accountability and support to focus on the goals that are most important to you. These may change over time through the coaching process, but they are always goals that you deem most important to living a happy and fulfilling life. Through a process of inquiry and discovery, coaching allows you to start where you are, get out of your own way, and move powerfully forward towards designing and living your life authentically according to your core values and commitments.
What I've learned in my 17 years of professional coaching is that we tend to get inspired (connect deeply to an idea or intent that is emerging through us) and then as we move to take action towards this intent, monkey mind races in with old fears, limiting beliefs, or just plain distractions and we disconnect from our inspiration. Without inspiration to pull you, action takes willpower. From here we end up leaking all kinds of energy as we try to push our way through whatever is blocking our way.
As a coach I am trained to see the places (blind spots) where you typically get off track. After we identify a pattern, we can shine a light on this area so that it is no longer hidden from you. As we examine and reframe your habits and beliefs, you are able to stay connected to your original intent. Once you start getting results with less effort, momentum will build as old limiting beliefs fall away. Instead of the work being about problem solving, fixing, or strategizing, we instead focus on growing you as a person to grow your results by releasing energy blocks and channeling your energy in ways that empower and inspire you!
How does coaching work?
Because coaching is based on relationship, commitment, and your innermost desires, every session is tailored specifically to meet your needs. Coaching is not a “one size fits all” plan. The focus is on discovering what works and what doesn’t work for you. I meet with clients once a week, either in person or by phone, for 60 to 90 minute
sessions. During our time together we concentrate on removing the obstacles and resistance that are leaking away at your power, and design strategies, actions, and ways of being that free you up to move toward whatever it is that you’re wanting.
I believe that one of the key elements to living a fulfilling and joyful life is to live a life that is in alignment with our core commitments and values, where we are truly able to bring our gifts to the table and have deep, meaningful connections with others. Any misalignment between our essence and our current choices creates resistance, which manifests in bodily, mental, emotional and spiritual angst. The trick is to distinguish which inner voices are based on our essence, and which are more conditioned, protective, ego based wants, complaints, and needs that might lead to habits of self sabotage. The more proactive and responsible you are for your life, the more you can empower yourself to have your life be a reflection of the magnificence that you already are!
