My wish for you is that you Love Your Life
Really love it! Like wouldn't change a thing love it. Wouldn't it be a beautiful world if everyone was in love with their life? Just imagine all the energy and creativity that we would have available to us! This doesn't mean life is perfect, but that it feels REAL.
But just in case that isn't how you are feeling right now (I'm guessing because you are looking up Life Coaches - smart hey?), I'm glad you are here and it's okay to not be there yet. We all have some soul searching and inner work to do. No one gets to escape that but sometimes it can get heavy and we can get stuck or have blind spots. This is where I come in and it's invaluable to have a guide to help you through.
I want to invite you into a conversation and offer a few thoughts to consider,
But first I want to ask you
Are you really loving your life?
Settle into that for a moment and consider these ideas...
Purpose - The passion that was placed in your heart and the gifts that were placed in your hands, are they present and alive in your life in a way that is meaningful to you?
Authenticity - Your true nature. Do you feel like you? Does your life feel like you? We intuitively know these answers right away because it's painful if the answer is no and joyful if the answer is yes!
Connection - Do you feel a heart felt connection in your most important relationships?
What about your community and the land that you live on? Or the rhythms and cycles of the natural world? Do you feel connected to your intuition and to your own body?
Love - Rumi was so wise when he said that 'Our task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek
and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.' We all have a few dings on our hearts but the real question is how are those affecting your openness to give and receive love today?
Home - This is the place where you belong. Sometimes it's a geographical location or a community of people whom you love and they love you, and sometimes it's a place deep, deep in your own heart. Do you know where 'home' is for you? Do you feel like you belong?
Truth - Our souls love the truth! It takes courage to see, acknowledge and speak the truth but we won't be fully aligned with our own lives until we do. The truth needs freedom, and space, and air to be able to truly transform what we have been holding. Is there something, or someone, you've been protecting from the truth?
These are heartfelt questions I know, and it's worth really looking in all of these areas to see how they might be affecting you. There are many reasons people reach out to me but usually at the core there is a feeling of being out of alignment in one of these places. And just like healthy food, exercise, and a good nights sleep.....love, authenticity and connection really are basic human needs.
That's why it can feel so painful when they are missing and a feeling unique to you might be alerting you of this. Trust this feeling. It's your inner wise one letting you know that something is out of balance, and in it's wisdom it is seeking for what is needed to bring you back to your true nature. Trust it.
And very often it's one of these areas that is stopping you from reaching your goals. This might seem completely unrelated at first, and that's what is fascinating and powerful about this work. Your procrastination, fear, doubt, lack of motivation, self sabotaging thoughts, however it's showing up for you....they are all wisely pointing you back to one of these areas that need some love and attention. They are a gift if you don't get stuck here. And once they are attended to you will see and feel a clear pathway to your goals.
'Coaching helps bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to be.'
So are you really loving your life? My wish is that you answer this with a big hell yes! If you are loving what you have created then sprinkle that goodness around and be a bright light for others. But if you noticed when you answered those questions that there is some part of your life that needs some attention, please allow yourself the time and grace to tend to those places. We might think we can hold it all together, and maybe we can for a time, but the reality is that eventually, even with our best intentions, it will surface. So why not do this on your terms?
I offer a free consultation to see if coaching is right for you. I am also happy to refer you to other modalities if they might be a better fit. Either way it's time well spent.
Sometimes when I start working with people the gap between where they are and where they want to be is so big that they can't even see how they will ever get there, which can diminish their belief that it is even possible. But I believe that if a dream has been placed in your heart then everything you need to accomplish it has also been placed within you. Grounded in that wisdom we'll start wherever you are and we'll take take one manageable step at a time.
