Are you feeling stuck and/or unsure of how to move forward? Do you long for a deeper sense of purpose and fulfillment? If so, working with a spiritual life coach may be just what you need.
A spiritual life coach is a trained professional who helps you connect with the deeper part of you. Some, like me, also help you align your physical life with your spiritual path.
Unlike traditional coaches, a spiritual life coach incorporates spiritual practices, principles and understanding into their coaching sessions to help you achieve meaningful personal growth and transformation.
Through one-on-one sessions, a spiritual life coach can help you gain clarity on your goals, identify limiting beliefs, and develop a plan for achieving your dreams.
Whether you're seeking guidance on your career, relationships, personal or spiritual development, a spiritual life coach can offer valuable insights and tools to help you live your best life.
It is important to understand the difference between a spiritual life coach and a psychologist. While both professionals can help you to work through personal issues, they have different approaches.
A psychologist focuses on your mental health and helps you to work through issues related to your past and present. They are licensed professionals who are trained to diagnose and treat mental health disorders.
A spiritual life coach, on the other hand, focuses on your spiritual growth and development. They help you to connect with your inner self and align with your spiritual path. A spiritual life coach is not licensed to diagnose or treat mental health disorders. Rather they help you find meaning and purpose in whatever you are doing or going through.
There are many benefits of working with a spiritual life coach. Here, in no particular order, are a few:
One of the biggest benefits of working with a spiritual life coach is getting clear on your goals and values. A spiritual life coach can help you to identify what is truly important to you and perhaps create a meaningful vision for your life. They can also help you to develop a plan for achieving your goals, in a meaningful way.
2. Personal Growth
Working with a spiritual life coach can help you to grow and develop as a person. A spiritual life coach can help you to overcome limiting beliefs and develop a spiritual practice that connects you to your inner self. Which can also help you through difficult times. Together, this can positively impact you, your relationships, and your career.
3. Spiritual Growth
Working with a spiritual life coach is an excellent way to grow spiritually. The ups and downs in your life can be explored through a spiritual lens. This usually brings comfort, deeper understanding, and a sense of peace during harder times.
4. Increased Confidence
When you work with a spiritual life coach, it’s common to find your self-confidence grow. You gain clarity on your goals, get the opportunity to explore deeper depths of yourself, and explore meaning and purpose in good times and in bad. Over time this increases your confidence and sense of self.
A spiritual life coach can help you stay accountable to your vision, goals, spiritual practices, and most importantly, yourself. They provide support and encouragement as you work towards achieving your goals, and help you stay true to you as you travel through life.
6. Personalized Approach
Every individual is different, and a spiritual life coach provides a deeply personalized approach that is tailored to your unique self, needs and goals. They also help to create a working plan that works for you and your lifestyle at any given point. There is no one size fits all and every great spiritual life coach knows this.
The process of working with a spiritual life coach typically involves several steps. Here are the basic steps if you choose to work with a spiritual life coach like me.
1. Initial Consultation
The first step in working with a spiritual life coach is to schedule an initial consultation. This consultation is usually free and is an opportunity for you to get to know the coach and to discuss your goals and needs. I offer a free 15-minute Discovery Call. Book here. You can also just dive in and book your full first session here.
2. Goal Setting
Once you have decided to work with a spiritual life coach, the next step is to set your goals or identify what you wish to explore. A spiritual life coach can help you to identify what is truly important to you, help you create a vision for your life, and work to align your outer life with your inner life.
3. Action Plan
After you have set your goals, your spiritual life coach will help you to develop an action plan. This plan will include specific steps that you can take to achieve your goals. I call this ‘homework’. And for my clients, it’s never generic. It’s always targeted to move you past whatever is holding you back, learn and grow.
4. Coaching Sessions
You will typically have regular coaching sessions with your spiritual life coach. These sessions may be in person, over the phone, or online. During these sessions, your coach will provide support and guidance as you work towards achieving your goals. I work online and over the phone. Each spiritual life coach is different. In my experience, online and over the phone is just as transformative as sitting down in person (and saves you a commute). However, if seeing someone in person is important, check to make sure you any spiritual life coach offers face to face appointments, and how long it will take to get one.
After each coaching session, your spiritual life coach may provide follow-up exercises or assignments to help you stay focused on your goals. I ask people to reflect and capture their reflections between appointments. How much and how you capture and reflect, is down to you. Follow up is important to create accountability and momentum.
