Create the Life You Desire Through
SPIRITED LIFE COACHING
"Life happens FOR and THROUGH us, not TO us. It is this distinction that separates us from the disillusioned and discouraged. We are part of the flow, part of creation, part of life. We cannot separate ourselves through limited beliefs and conditioning, no matter how prevalent they are or have been. Ultimately, we are children of God, of the Universe, and we are reflective of all that surrounds us. There IS no separation between us and all that exists. Open our hearts, minds and live in inquiry, ask questions that have no answers, challenge our beliefs and let go of certainty, relishing the unknown.
This is our path. This is joy."
Spirited Life Coaching blends the best of psychology,
coaching and the spiritual principles that govern our lives.
THIS COACHING IS UNIQUE
As are you. Everything in your life has brought you to this moment, this decision, this opportunity. You are a blend of your history and your imagination, you carry ancestral patterns and beliefs, you have experienced loss and trauma and heartbreak and successes and victories. You know there's more, and you want it. You feel it. You want deeper intimacy, to make a bigger impact, to create more harmony and peace in your life and in the lives of those around you. It takes vision, commitment, an active and finely tuned imagination and the right support to bring it all together.
You deserve for your coach to acknowledge and address the totality of you as well as the potential of you. With a Masters in Counseling (trauma studies), numerous certifications in various coaching programs (see below), decades as a regression hypnotherapist and a belief that we are guided always by our innate goodness and potential, I see you in ways you may never have seen yourself.
My Path to Coaching
I have always been interested in how human's think and act. When I was 5 I was reading "Can this marriage be saved?" in Good Housekeeping. When I was 10 I was reading "Drama in Real Life" in Reader's DIgest. When I was 15 I was reading about Edgar Cayce, the healing seer and when I was 20 I had fully dived into the metaphysical books from Seth, Ruth Montgomery and Shirley Maclaine. Jump ahead to when I was 45 and began working with domestic violence survivors. By 50 I had my masters in counseling with a focus on trauma, was a certified hypnotherapist, a Reiki master and was enrolled in my first coaching program with CTA (Coach Training America). I would go on to certify in other coaching programs and leave the medical model of therapy in favor of focusing on the power the subconscious in healing and transformation.
I began to explore the effects of trauma and loss on our ability to live full and creative lives. Unresolved grief is at the core of our hesitancy and resistance to embrace full lives. Our memory of those moments in which we lost our sense of safety, our sense of connection, our sense of our worth and goodness follow us through lifetimes. We learned to fear speaking our truth or trusting in our hearts. I realized that my beliefs and trainings provided the perfect coaching combination of psychology, metaphysics and hypnotherapy for releasing whatever holds you back even as it helps you create new lives of purpose, joy and vitality.
Why You Want a Coach
You know there's more. You can't do it on your own. You are ready to meet the challenge of who you are and who you want to become. You ready to leave old habits, beliefs and patterns behind and create something new. The essence of who you are KNOWS that no matter how successful OR stuck you may feel in this moment, there is always a bigger, deeper and more satisfying experience waiting for you. It is an internal call that all humans have, not dissimilar to the pull for birds to fly south or the trees to bud in the Spring. When we allow ourselves to acknowledge and respond to this call, our lives begin to flow in ways we never could have imagined.
No one can do this for you, but you can't do it alone.
Every issue in our lives asks us to open our hearts. As children, our open hearts may have been wounded through our caregiver’s inability to see and nurture our authentic selves. Experiences of neglect, abuse, abandonment and other behaviors taught us to develop strategies of protection. We began to see ourselves as less than, or not good enough, needing to grow up before we were ready, taking responsibility for the frightened perceptions of those around us. This happens in 80 to 95% of families. These strategies manifest themselves in our adult lives as overwhelm, anxiety, illness, confusion, exhaustion, frustration or anger, deep sadness and more.
Our goal is to address each issue as a gift to develop our awareness in how we separate ourselves from our true nature. Opening our hearts does not mean putting ourselves at risk. It means living from a place of trusting ourselves enough to be in the world on our own terms, without judgment, defensiveness or fear.
In short, we begin to live in the world as emotionally and spiritually mature adults. The child within begins to develop trust in our willingness to truly hear and listen to the fears we have carried throughout our lives. We choose to live from courage, trust, compassion and integrity. Being with the depth of all of our experiences rather than suppressing, repressing or resisting is the doorway to creating a life of freedom and joy.
We meet clients where they are. Issues that are most common include ACOA (adult children of alcoholics, abuse, neglect), Anxiety, Divorce, Domestic Violence, Relationships (business and personal), Personal Awareness, Grief, Forgiveness, Parenting and Spiritual Growth.
Creating a world where we are safe to express who we are, encouraged to embrace our worthiness and inherent goodness and compelled to act on behalf of our planet, our humanity and the Source that created us.
Our coaching relationship begins with a conversation. I will illuminate what you cannot see. I will say things to you that no one else would dare say. I will listen to what you are asking for and hear what your heart is longing for. I will recognize your unlimited potential and challenge you into dreaming bigger. This is the beginning and the path of our coaching relationship.
This initial conversation is an investment of our time and energy, but does not presume we will establish a contract with one another. There is no charge. It is simply a beautiful place to start.
3 months is the minimum for beginning to change at a deep level. 6 months to a year gives us time to more deeply unearth the resistance and create the momentum. Many clients have been with me for years. There is no end to the depth and potential of who you are and can become.
Call or email me and let's have that conversation. I know you have more to you and your experience than you may ever have allowed yourself to believe. Let me share with you what I see in you.
A Spirited Life Is
Commitment to knowing yourself without apology or defense
Releasing blame and judgment for anything that occurs in your life
Willingness to play with and transform the assumptions and conditioning that have molded you
Courage to author a life you’ve dreamed of but have never taken the time or initiative to create
Connecting to yourself, your loved ones, your community, with an open heart and vulnerability
Recognition that finding the right support is essential in manifesting your dreams
You are the light we've been waiting for. You've experienced the pain and the challenges and the heartbreak of being human and yet, here you are, knowing there is more to learn, to forgive, to share. You are listening to the call of your soul to open your heart and live life fully and joyfully.
It is our privilege and honor to lead you forward while having your back. This is the step you know is next. What you do with it is up to you. Let's talk.
We both will learn so much.
Let me know you want to create a conversation and we'll begin.
The Grief Coach Academy is dedicated to reducing the time that people suffer from heartbreak, stress, setbacks, trauma, PTSD, and grief. "Time alone does not heal. Studies show that people suffer 5 - 8 YEARS on average if they just wait. That's too long! People can recover MUCH faster with support. Clients can rapidly rebuild a life of meaning, purpose, and happiness with the right support. Loss can launch leaders." - Aurora Winter
Radical Forgiveness has almost nothing in common with traditional forgiveness. It doesn’t require you to pretend that you’re not hurt or angry. In fact, you’ll honor your feelings more than ever, and then experience an authentic shift in your consciousness to help you release the pain and suffering.
The Enneagram Institute®, created in 1997 by the late Don Richard Riso and by Russ Hudson, was formed to further research and development of the Enneagram, one of the most powerful and insightful tools for understanding ourselves and others. At its core, the Enneagram helps us to see ourselves at a deeper, more objective level and can be of invaluable assistance on our path to self-knowledge.
The Three Principles have been called by other names, including The Inside out of Understanding, Health Realization, neo-cognitive psychology, Psychology of Mind, and Innate Health. The form of how the Three Principles has been taught has changed over the decades, with an increasing emphasis on simplicity, formlessness, and speaking from the heart. Some would say that the Three Principles is not a "technique" that can be taught but instead a paradigm that comes to be understood at increasingly deeper levels.
Holographic Memory Resolution® is a new body mind approach that allows expedient access to past memories and helps to achieve resolution of the painful emotions associated with such events without having to "relive" such experiences and without affecting historical memory. This technique is profoundly empowering to the survivor who becomes his/her own source of healing.
Heart iQ's mission is to move us away from a culture of separation, into a culture of connection. As a practice, Heart iQ is a way to deepen your connection with yourself, your intimate relationships and the world around you, by doing your inner work with others in community.
When we practice Heart iQ together, an amplified field is created providing an environment that is filled with profound insight, nourishing intimacy and deep healing. Heart iQ exists to help shape a better world for future generations to come. That's why we believe the greatest gift you can give to the world, is to become a fully healthy you.
Emotional freedom technique (EFT) is an alternative treatment for physical pain and emotional distress. It’s also referred to as tapping or psychological acupressure. People who use this technique believe tapping the body can create a balance in your energy system and treat pain. According to its developer, Gary Craig, a disruption in energy is the cause of all negative emotions and pain.
Though still being researched, EFT tapping has been used to treat people wit anxiety and people with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
