 So Now You’re a Life Coach…  Congratulations – you’re on the path to making a difference in many people’s lives!  But how many?? While you may be the greatest coach in the world, you will only attract those people who genuinely understand WHO you are, WHAT it is you do, and HOW you can solve their particular problem. Are you prepared for answering these questions in-depth?  If you’re like most coaches I know, you’re not.  You simply don’t know or understand your “Coaching Niche.” Your “Niche” is simply your specialty,... (Read More ...)

Not Your Daddy’s Family Conference… I remember some afternoons in the 50’s and 60’s when my father would come home from work and call my sister and me together for what he called a “family conference.”  This, we soon learned was code for a threat-laced scolding. “Your mother tells me ya’ll were bad all day, and I’m going to spank you both if I hear one more peep out of either one of you today!” Dad then fingered his belt buckle, like Wild Bill Hickock might drum the handles of his silver revolvers while staring down a drunk on the streets... (Read More ...)

In my previous blog post entitled “The Unseen Forces That Run Your Life,” I covered ways that thought impulses can be affected by parents, ancestors, friends, culture, etc.  In this article, I will  give you ways you can actually use that information as a coach to achieve positive results in your own and other people’s lives.   How To Discover The Source of Thoughts As a coach, you are dealing with clients whose thought sources may be unknown to you.  If so, it is difficult to asses the proper motivation of this client, and therefore help them to achieve his or her goal. For... (Read More ...)

In this Halloween and fall harvest season, it’s good to pause for a moment and reflect on some of life’s deeper realities.  The common focus in fall is about the mystery of death, dying, and transformation.  But what makes this mystery so alluring? It’s simple:  the unknown and unknowable is always fascinating, simply because they affect every aspect of our lives! The unseen forces that run your life are not usually ghosts or poltergeists… they are actually much more familiar to you. In fact, they are SO familiar, you often don’t even notice them! The Unseen Source... (Read More ...)

This Is Not Your Daddy’s Coaching Method… Muscle Testing?  Chakras?  Come on… What is this? New age psycho babble?? To some who don’t care to look beyond the surface, yes.   In fact, I used to think so myself . . . until a wise, but fairly orthodox chiropractor in Macon, Georgia in the mid-1970’s showed me a whole new way to self-knowledge… and rocked my world!  Since then I have been slowly uncovering the wisdom revealed by this  powerful method. It Works! I bring up these subjects because – as a Life or Business Coach – you want to do the... (Read More ...)

Stressed Out Clients: A Coaching Challenge As a Life or Business Coach, your job is to understand your client and help them understand Where they are in life or business Where they want to be, and How best to get there… …right? So what happens when they fret about everything, argue minor points continuously become distracted and don’t listen, flake out and don’t follow through, change their minds frequently, or simply stressed out? Then what?? Most clients are not basket cases and will respond to effective coaching.  There are some who may need you to apply a few other... (Read More ...)

Muscle Testing: The Ultimate Self-Help How would you like to be able to get instant feedback from your – or your clients’ – subconscious mind?  How would you like to know whether or not the affirmations you say every day are actually having any affect?  Now you can . . . and its much easier to do than you may think. Muscle Testing (or Applied Kinesiology) has been used for decades by chiropractors, doctors, therapists, and even the CIA to determine underlying truths.  Now you can too! Here is a video I made about four years ago, but the information is still perfect for today’s... (Read More ...)

OK, let’s cut to the chase . . . Coaching is really all about creating MIRACLES in your life and the lives of your clients. If you don’t quite get how that happens (and even if you do), you need to check out my latest online training entitled… Dr. Michael Craig Coaching Miracles I created this 4-video Series entitled Coaching Miracles from snippets of a presentation I gave about a year ago to a group of newly-certified Life Coaches.  After a little cleaning up and editing, it was still a little fuzzy . . . but the CONTENT I provided during that afternoon talk provided material... (Read More ...)

Interesting Stuff…  Today, my wife Brigitte and I had our first session of Higher Brain Living® (HBL), a technique we learned about only last week.  The sessions were given simultaneously by Walter, our facilitator, and took about 2 hours.  Afterwards we both felt refreshed and renewed, and now Brigitte wants to become a facilitator herself! I find the process interesting for a couple of reasons: First, the technique was developed by a Michael Cotton, a chiropractor who, like me, also studied acupuncture, eastern traditions, and various healing and energy modalities. Both of us, it seems,... (Read More ...)

That’s right.  I’m in the process of putting the finishing touches on Logical... (Read More ...)

So what the heck is a “Kahuna” And what does this have to do with coaching success?? A lot.  You see, the ancient Hawaiian Kahunas (“Ka” means “keeper” and “Huna” means “secret”) were known for performing miracles.  Their “secret” was the inner knowledge that miracles happen when you find a powerful force, put your intention in the direction of that force, and let that force carry you to unbelievable heights. They did this by harnessing the synergistic power of the THREE SELVES – the Unihipili, Uhane and Aumakua.  They... (Read More ...)

You probably did not become a Coach or Consultant to set up websites and do a bunch of other technical stuff.  You are, after all, a “People Person,” right?  Right. That’s why its so important to outsource “techie stuff” to those who love to hang out with HTML, PHP, SEO and other members of the techie alphabet world! The fact is, however, unless you are already independently wealthy and can afford to outsource it all, you need to do a few things yourself.  Even if you DO outsource later, knowing how to do simple things like setting up your own blog pages and posts... (Read More ...)

Dr. Goodheart (1918-2008) Muscle Testing – the testing of muscles to determine changes in body energy, health and responsiveness – has been around for a long time.  It wasn’t until the mid-1960’s, however, until noted chiropractor and researcher Dr. George Goodheart systematized the process known today as “Applied Kineseology.”  “A.K.” – as it is known in the profession – is a powerful tool for testing muscles to determine underlying disorders or for testing the body for compatibility with substances like vitamins, foods, chemicals,... (Read More ...)

Ever wonder if you are in the right coaching or consulting niche? If so, you are not alone! Since the average life coach earns – according to one study – less than $10K per year, it behooves us to share as many marketing and business-building tips as possible with our visitors. In this blog post, I selected one of the business-related training videos from our upcoming online course, Basic Life Coach Certification. Dr. Ron Owens and I cover the steps from A to Z on how to be an effective coach, as well as a savvy business person. In this Module, Dr. Ron Owens covers the subject of how... (Read More ...)

The idea that you can re-program you “Subconscious Mind” has been around since Msr. Mesmer spent time in Paris entertaining Marie Antoinette and other ladies of the court with his tricks of “animal magnetism.” Improvements in hypnosis and inner programming have happened over the years until now it is taken for granted that this is the way it is. But what if there were MORE to it? What if you found out the Subconscious does NOT like to be programmed or re-programmed to change certain inner beliefs or habits? This, in fact, is what happens! The “Subconscious Being”... (Read More ...)

I always knew muscle testing was fun.  But I never knew it could be THIS fun!! I was one of the speakers this past weekend at the “Southern Friend Laughter Conference” held in Atlanta, and presented “Muscle Testing – Accessing the Subconscious” to one of the most receptive audiences I’ve ever had! Not only did they laugh and applaud . . . they laughed, applauded, then laughed and applauded ever LOUDER!! Needless to say, I was not the main attraction, even at my own event! And I’m VERY OK with that! In fact, I enjoyed the “Laughter Contestants”... (Read More ...)

OK, so what’s LAUGHTER got do do with MUSCLE TESTING? . . . and what’s all this got to do with COACHING??  Glad you asked . . . Both Laughter and Muscle Testing involve getting the Conscious and Subconscious minds to relax with one another. More often than not, you may be tense, afraid or angry at something. While laughter can ease that tension, the correct use of a tool like Muscle Testing allows you and your client to discover the underlying CAUSE of the tension. Both, in their own way, can lead to tremendous self-discovery and greater happiness. You see, LAUGHTER is the body’s... (Read More ...)

(The following article was published on September 12, 2010 on my Logical Soul® Talk blog.  It is being presented here because of its vital importance to your coaching practice.) A “Soul Whisperer” – like a horse or dog whisperer – is one who must approach his subject with respect, silent awareness, non-violence and loving invitation. This is the path of the Logical Soul®. “Soul whispering” is a skill modern-day psychologists or therapists need to cultivate if they want to fundamentally transform a person’s life. Otherwise, change becomes (Read More …)  (Read More ...)
