Again if we apply this to coaching, the lesson to be learned is that we can take responsibility for becoming great coaches. Through practice, we will learn what works and what does not work. We can learn to let go of the mistakes and move on to the next steps in our own personal growth as individuals and as well as coaches.
What if we could coach our clients to replace their old beliefs that keep them stuck and replace them with beliefs that move them forward? If we can help our clients replace a belief that is not working with one that works, then they will no longer let the old belief have influence over them.
We constantly need to keep challenging the old fear based beliefs in our mind. It will take time to break free of our inner judge, and old emotional habits that we have created over a life time. We need to recognize that there will be some battles lost along the way but that is of minor concern in the longer term strategy of creating happiness in our life.
As a coach we do our utmost to coach without judgement and see our clients as perfect human beings who have within them the ability to create a life of unlimited possibilities. We can help our client take responsibility for their current reality without attaching any blame. Having done that, our clients can take the necessary steps to replace dis-empowering beliefs with empowering beliefs.
Another positive outcome of reading many books including some of the authors listed in the introduction was reading about universal energy or some refer to it as “universal intelligence”. This concept has been brought forward by many authors and indeed scientific research has proven that everything, the entire universe; including us humans are pure energy. Even our thoughts are energy. Let’s explore how universal intelligence/ energy can affect coaching?
We now know that all physical matter which began as a though first (energy) and then and only then became physical matter. While physical matter appears as if it is solid form it is not, it is pure energy. If you were to put any physical matter under a super microscope you would actually see that the molecules that make up the matter are indeed just energy.
There is a frequency or vibration of energy that fills the Universe. This energy is not only beneficial, but also essential to all living cells whether human, plant or animal. Man utilizes this energy with his mind. Every thought is transmitted by this energy. Every aspect of life in the physical depends on this basic energy or power of the Universe.
As a coach, we can put this universal energy into our coaching practice. Perhaps it will be a meditation before our session or maybe we can use it in a visualization with our clients. Or maybe we just call upon this universal energy to surround your client so that can relax and be more open to the new possibilities that can created in a coaching session.
