What is Spiritual Life Coaching?
Research suggests that there is a direct relationship between spirituality and mental health where people who are more spiritual have been shown to enjoy better health and overall sense of well-being.
This leads to the first of two important questions we will explore in this chapter:
The truth is, it means many things to many people. For some, spirituality is about the adherence to a particular mystical belief system while for others it’s a way of life that is focused on looking past the traditional milestones of success -- such as public achievements and material wealth -- in a way that brings no harm to living beings.
There are also many other definitions in between these two.
Whichever way you happen to look at it there appears to be one definition of spirituality that most people agree with and it’s this…
Spiritual life coaches support and guide their clients to take ownership of their lives in alignment with the laws of the Universe and in a way that creates profound joy and fulfilment.
For many people it’s about connecting with God the Universe and with a power that is divine.
There’s been a sharp rise in interest about all things spiritual over the past few years and this comes as no surprise as countless people try to make sense of a rapidly changing, and unpredictable world, along with existential questions like, “What is the meaning of my life?”
In other words, there’s no time better than now to become a spiritual life coach and this leads to the second important question that we’ll answer in this chapter…
A spiritual life coach helps clients discover who they truly are and what they truly want. Clients will learn how to define success on their own terms and in alignment with their spiritual values.
Spiritual life coaching goes deeper into the world of the unseen.
It’s not just about outer actions and behaviours but about getting to the root of difficulties, challenges and problems, and looking at what a client wants to create in their life through the lens of their beliefs and thoughts.
In some cases, spiritual life coaching involves esoteric or non-traditional coaching tools and techniques such as energy healing... however this is not always the case.
Many spiritual life coaches also work with philosophical and psychological life coaching techniques such as identifying and releasing limiting beliefs, but with a spiritual slant where there is a strong focus on creating and living a conscious, spiritual life.
Now that we’ve explored what spirituality means and looked at what spiritual life coaching is, it’s time to ask the most important question of all…
Why do you want to become a spiritual life coach or why do you want to add an element of spiritual life coaching to your current practice?
Go ahead, open your journal or grab a piece of paper and write your answer.
Allow yourself to capture all your thoughts and feelings as you write. Whatever you do, don’t hold back.
This is crucial because getting to your truth -- your true answer -- to this question will help inspire you on your journey to becoming an extraordinary spiritual life coach.
Your clear, powerful “why” will also fuel your motivation as you navigate through the inevitable ups and downs that come with starting and growing a successful spiritual life coaching practice.
