In my previous article, I talked about how either having high energy or shocking experiences can sometimes take you out of the body . . . at least that’s what happened to me since my nervous system at that time (work in progress) was not strong enough. In this article I want to discuss what I call “Spiritual First Aid” – or ways to come back in, get grounded, and thus be more effective in life. The Three Selves In the mid-1980’s I met my future (and current) husband, Dr. Michael Craig.  He introduced me to all kinds of new ideas.  One of my most favorite ideas had... (Read More ...)

OK . . . you started meditating because you heard that’s the way to get happier, right? More alive, more in tune with the Divine . . . to know who you truly are.

If so, I invite you to relax into an easy, upright position. If you’ve been following along, then you are... (Read More ...)

Let go of judgment. Basic Life Coach Training Update: Lately I’ve been reading about Buddhist meditation and mindfulness – specifically what’s known as Vipassana meditation. At it’s core, it’s the practice of seeing the true nature of reality without preconceptions or illusions, and can be a great technique to share with others as part of your life coaching and life coach training. This may sound simple, but being mindful goes against much of what we’re expected to do in daily life. So what does this have to do with life coach training? After practicing mindfulness,... (Read More ...)

Life Coaching naturally involves both “life” and “coaching.”  Since “life” can’t be defined, every life coach training program out there focuses on the coaching part, or things to DO.  These things usually involve active listening, appreciative inquiry, and a dozen other words to go along with a way of getting results based on connecting with others with an end or result in mind. What would happen, however, if the results could happen naturally based on BEING instead of “Doing”?  What if there were an approach built on “life”.... (Read More ...)
