Be Still and Listen to Your Higher Self for the Answers
The answers you seek are within. True authentic coaching is guiding a client to his/her higher knowing, inner wisdom. It is not telling a client what to do or giving them the answers. Giving someone the answers is consulting not coaching. Please, be wary of coaches that tell you they have the answer to your life or know what your purpose is. This simply is not true.
And no one can truly consult you on your life. You know you best and you know your life best.
One of my greatest joys as a coach is watching a client come back to herself, to Re-MEMBER who she is and then ground in that knowing. That single moment is like a spark that leads to an abundance of inspiration and possibilities. It’s truly magical to witness. Our access to our inner knowing is always there, we simply need to get still and listen.
It is natural to be hungry for answers when first beginning your career purpose journey. And it is natural to seek answers outside yourself, but the truest answers are within. The truest answers are in your heart and soul. You only need to be still and listen to hear your truth.
Most of my clients have followed an external authority for so long that it is not always natural to seek the answers within. It’s like building a muscle. It takes trial and error and being in connection with yourself.
Here are my 5 suggestions for reconnecting with yourself:
- Forgive yourself for forgetting to take time to be in self-connection.
- Commit. No matter what, take time throughout your day to check in and notice your feelings and thoughts.
- Do not judge your feelings or thoughts. Remain curious and explore the inner landscape of your soul.
- Ask yourself powerful inquiry questions and listen for the answers. Example: What is my next step? Inquiry means you keep asking the question over and over. No one answer is the “right” one until you know it is.
- Journal your feelings and thoughts and ask for guidance from your higher, wiser self. Then listen to those answers.
My wish for you is to re-member who you are and know that the world craves the AUTHENTIC, BRILLIANT YOU Let her SHINE!
