Spiritual life coaching is one field of life coaching that concentrates on uplifting the spirit of the client. This method is widely common now days. This approach affects the different material aspects of life by dealing first with its immaterial aspect, the spirit.
Spirituality may be a vague term. Its meaning can be subjective, depending on the person who uses the word. It can either be religious or not. But definitely it comes from within a person. Coaching in this field is tapping that inner spirit to become active and in turn change a persons’ life.
This type of coaching focuses on what is essential in your life. Your inspiration to live may have died or you are dried out due to the toxicity and stresses of everyday life. This approach would fill up that yearning inside you once again and the revival of your spirit is achieved.
Its product being tranquility, peace of mind, motivation, fulfillment, and simply the balance in life can be achieved.
At the beginning of the process you will be asked to evaluate your life. Here you get to see the vital areas of your so-called life and rate it on how exactly you are doing along with it. Your coach will guide you through this process of evaluation in order for both of you see what would be the best approach for you.
After you evaluate, you would discover a lot about your life that you didn’t consciously know before. Here you will see the waterloos of your life. You get to discover your highs and lows, those points to work on, your personal assets and characteristics.
You would also get to see your behaviors that you need to get rid off, improve, or keep. Self-awareness is achieved and a sense of individuality is gained. In this process, it is not your coach that discovers you, but it is of your own doing that you discover yourself.
Your coach won’t be the one to answer your life’s problems. He is just there to guide you through it by pointing out the problems that you have to work on. Thought provoking questions is asked to you to analyze and see the real deal of your difficulty. He layouts the different alternatives or solutions, but then you are still to be the one to decide.
Renovations and Innovations
Lastly, a spiritual coach can help you renovate your life, in the sense that your old spirit that has acquired damages can be repaired. It is really hard to get rid of old habits especially if you had them for years, but with having a life coach this is very much possible.
Innovations can be done too, in which your broken spirit isn’t just repaired but also improved to the best it can be. You can acquire new behaviors that are actually good for you. You get to improve on different fields in life. In effect of having a renewed spirit is the price of having a new life too.
Spiritual coaching is not relying on your coach to pray for you or do mantras or perform spiritual ritual acts on you. It is your spirit that is worked on, thus your own willing participation is needed. Basically, it is making you see the diamond behind the coal of your spirit.
