Thank you to all the ICF coaches who joined me for June’s SIG conversation “Deepening our Spiritual Practice.” The curiosity and commitment my colleagues bring to these calls is inspiring. Coaches are curious to learn how others are incorporating a healer’s orientation in their corporate coaching, as well as interested in expanding their own personal knowledge of how to work with energy.
The use of energy work in coaching is a portal that helps clients integrate their four aspects---mind, body, spirit and emotions. As a result, clients feel whole; all their parts fit. As my mom would say, “They have more bounce in their walk.” There is no one way to success; practitioners realize that it is a combination of practices that produce healing. I am using my energy background to help heal my own life, as well as helping clients heal theirs.
Energy work is complementary to the coaching modalities we use. In fact, at the basis of both “fields” is the same commitment to service. The addition of a natural healing practice to our coaching has deepened our relationship to serve. Many of us are guided by compassion, a muscle we cultivate through our spiritual practice.
During the SIG programs we bring the lines closer between energy work and coaching, because in fact the lines overlap. We are human beings composed of four aspects; and we are energetic beings. All of us want to experience more joy, more peace, more love. The addition of an energy healing practice has given me the tools, the confidence and the humility to keep looking for and utilizing “healing” protocols to help clients experience as much joy as they can. Why? Life is short. The more you live the less you die.
