I hated the term at first.
I wouldn't use it.
I was trying to say I was an "intuitive guide" but that felt like I was leading someone through a psychic journey-
And that wasn't exactly what I was doing.
And then I thought well-
Or "Spiritual Life coach
And then I thought that sounded like I worked for the church or something.
(Even though church doesn't have much to do with Spirit- in My experience.)
Coach just made me think of football.
And people who don't know about life coaching-
do think that's what I'm talking about if I tell them I'm a coach.
I know this-
I've been in that conversation with an uber driver.
And then also- everybody's a coach nowadays.
And that's supposed to be a negative thing-but it's not.
I like it.
What I have come to realize is that coach-
Is the "now" term for someone guiding another with their own intuitive knowledge and life skills.
It's someone guiding you more authentically than we have ever allowed happen before.
Yes- yes- study, training, practice - all are required for a coach to be effective and safe-
We are living in this time where people- want to learn from EACH OTHER!
They don't want so much structure and following of the rules and standard programmed sessions.
People don't even trust doctors anymore-
Them come and get tarot card readings instead of going to therapy-or the doctor sometimes!
They use essential oils and go to herbalists instead of going to western medicine.
Which is great!
Western medicine is only a piece of the whole anyway-
They want another PERSON-
A Real person-not a figure-
Someone they trust and identify with-
to HEAR them and SEE them and GUIDE them-
from experience -
and with their own personal gift from the Divine.
People want someone who listened to their intuition-
Who learned from real life-
We are all wanting that.
And so coaching-
It's just human to human support.
Spirit to spirit Connection and Guidance,
someone with a lantern-
helping you light yours.
And we all need somebody different.
And I think it's the thing that I love so much about
It feels like people love each other and trust each other and support each other and honor each other more than I have ever experienced in my life.
And I think it's absolutely beautiful.
So for all of my friends resisting the term-
Just rethink it.
We are creating something different.
And in this paradigm, there is room for all of us.
