Four Great Benefits of Spiritual Life Coaching

Feb 27, 2008
Spiritual life coaching is an amazing gift to give yourself. We all know the difficulty in changing the habitual behaviors that do not serve us, and successfully taking actions that support our desire to live a full, abundant, and peaceful life. A life coach offers support and reflection that can keep us on track with our goals in life. A spiritual life coach keeps our goals in the context of our spiritual path.

There has been much talk recently of creating abundance. Books and movies like The Secret and What the Bleep Do We Know? tell us we create our own reality and we can have all the abundance we want if we re-structure our way of perceiving the world. This information is valuable and timely, however it is skewed in a way that over-emphasizes the materialistic drives of the culture at large, and leaves us once again grasping for something outside of ourselves and judging ourselves if we do not make material gains happen quickly. Abundance does not have to stem from need, it can arise naturally as an expression of a life lived in integrity, with openness and depth of spirit present in everything we do. A spiritual coach helps us keep that thread of depth in the forefront as we move through the world accomplishing our goals.

A second great gift of having a life coach is accountability. Whether we are trying to create or deepen a spiritual practice, or working to establish a business, we all have habits that do not serve us, which we would like to change or transform in some way. (If not, then we would already have what we want.) Having an impartial participant in our process to gently remind us when our actions stray from what we are trying to accomplish, and to brainstorm with us how to make commitments that are doable, is of incredible value. A good spiritual life coach can help us stop punishing ourselves as a way to stay accountable, and instead offer genuine support to live our dreams.

Coaches give us a clear reflection that is outside the loop of our friends, family, and coworkers. They provide an objective mirror that is not caught up in the drama of our world, and this non-judging clarity facilitates transformation and progress in all the areas we are trying to change. A good coach is not a substitute for friends and family, but gives support and inspiration that revolve directly around us, without an agenda of their own. This provides a vast boost of energy to help stay connected and joyful about manifesting our dreams.

Most importantly a good coach keeps us inspired. They remind us that working to realize our goals, or doing great things with our life, does not have to be a chore. Living and manifesting our purpose is a joy. Having someone in our court to keep us from grinding down and gritting our teeth; instead supporting us to stay energized and excited with life is invaluable. Our coach is then a loving cheerleader, supporting us no matter what the obstacle and celebrating our triumphs and successes.

Spiritual life coaches help us keep everything in the context of our spiritual path and highest purpose. They help us create a life that is a true reflection of our spirit, inspiring us to weave our spirit into all aspects of our lives. Give yourself the gift of joyful accountability, clear reflection, and inspiration by finding a great spiritual coach to work with.
