This is a lifestyle-coaching model to support finding and working with your authentic center for living a more empowered life of self-awareness, self-confidence, self-assurance and JOY!
Clients come to coaching because they want to effect change in their lives. They want more fulfilling and meaningful work, transitioning to a new role, dealing with work related stress, or to find better lifestyle-career balance, financial prosperity, time management, better relationships, less suffering, love, creativity, clarity, health, well-being or to find accountability. They come for specific goals whether that is to get a job, make a career change, transition in or out of a relationship.
Coaching is about creating self-awareness and self-confidence to make better choices and gain the self-assurance to put it into action to affect the desired result. Getting in touch with your center is important to this process as what you do to the center you do to the whole. When your belly center leads you into action, your whole body moves easily, gracefully, and effortlessly. The whole of you moves as one into the flow and in total alignment with your authentic self, allowing you to live your true purpose.
In today’s culture we tend to rely exclusively on our mind, logic, brain in our heads to drive our lives. What we often don’t realize is our mind can lie to us. How do we distinguish the truth from the prevalent negative chatter constantly going off in our heads? I ask m clients to get in touch with their gut wisdom for their truth and direction. Your belly – physically, emotionally, and energetically – is the center of your life. Your belly contains the vital organs that orchestrate your digestion, respiration, reproduction, immunity and more. Your belly is a wealth of emotional intelligence, container of your core issues and your procreative power. Your belly is a cauldron of life energy storing your life force and sending it through the entire body.
My approach to coaching is to create a safe space for the client to touch into their gut wisdom – that place where deep down, you just know. We will focus on tapping into that inner wisdom through powerful questions, and practices that facilitate finding or reclaiming your center of intuitive power. We will then focus on specific behaviors that can be implemented to help them get to their desired goal. Replacing negative self –beliefs with positive.
What is your purpose here? To finally reach some frozen state of perfection and paste yourself there, unmoving, unbreathing, unchanging? Life is about enlarging our experience, expanding the scope of our self-awareness. We experiment, we make mistakes, we go overboard, we lose our balance, and we leave home and lose our way for a while. We return. We return again and again, to our center. Through Gut Wisdom Coaching I partner with my client to make changes that enhance and nourish, amplify, magnify, illuminate and celebrate who they already are.
