This year began with an uphill climb! It actually started in mid December with the start of a month long horrible cold.
So, what did I do? After two "Z" packs, I was convinced to board the auto train to Florida with some friends to stay in Sunny Siesta Key, Florida.
Of COURSE I feel better now, lol. Who wouldn't? The beach is voted as #1 in the country and it's sand is white crushed crystals that do not ever get too hot to walk on. Just cool, powdery softness that leads to the cooler January crystal clear aqua water of the Gulf of Mexico. If you can stand 64 degrees, it's great for swimming with the critters. Notably, two good size mating sting rays!
But what does this have to do with "coaching"?
Coaching is about a safe place for a client to feel comfortable enough to explore the full range of their emotions; the good, the bad and the ugly.
By looking deeply, consciously and lovingly at the whole self, it helps the person learn to identify very clearly what it is they really want or need in order to feel happy, fulfilled, energized, healthier, more prosperous and aligned with the Divine Plan / Purpose for their life.
As a coach I need to be living what I teach. I need to be listening to my heart. And, I do. I need to be willing to go with the flow and not fight it
Fighting it will only prevent or block me from living my highest and best life.
I no longer want to procrastinate about anything in my life. I have taken care of enough older and dying people that the preciousness of life is screaming out to me at all times. I value life and the opportunities we have presented to us every day. Actually every moment.
At any moment we can decide that we have had enough of something that is no longer important to us anymore, or something that no longer serves them in a positive way. We can decide the job or profession we have been doing for years, or decades, is just not anything more than a money maker. It is perhaps no longer in alignment with our values , interests, or energy level. We are just not happy because we are living out of alignment. We are living a lie of sorts; lying to ourselves about how it is still OK, when in reality it is killing us. It is lacking "juice" , life force, and any kind of emotional satisfaction.
At any moment we can come to the awareness that someone in our life is not contributing to our health, but actually toxic for us. We can choose to take inspired actions to work on healing or leaving that relationship.
Maybe it is the relationship we have with our "self" or our body, our past, our money, whatever. Whatever it is, we can at any moment wake up to the truth that we actual have the power to make different choices in our lives. Choices that can bring us from dull, mundane, utilitarian lives to lives of wonder, excitement and joy. Lives where we live with passion!
My head told me I could not go to Florida. My head was negative and limiting in it's evaluation of what was possible, but upon tuning in to my heart I felt the call to let go and allow myself the gift the Universe was offering me of a free trip and free places to stay. A time to get away. A time to see things from a fresh and new place. A time to be with very good friends and laugh and laugh until my sides felt like splitting.
I recommend listening to your heart more often. Daily. Maybe many times daily. Whenever you are questioning your life, or some decision, give your heart a chance to be heard. Do not go only with what your head says.
Balance is and so many times we just let the head rule.
Valentines Day is coming! Let your heart be heard!
Who knows where that may bring you? What place? What career change? What new people or maybe one special person.
Give yourself the gift of listening to your heart today.
How about now?
So much more is possible, and waiting for us to receive.
Let us all open up and accept the blessings which abound.
Take it from me, don't be an ass. Call for your free consultation and begin to get the help and support you need to create a happier life!
