As a therapist, my role is to offer counseling that addresses psychological needs and mental health symptoms. But as I mentioned in my journey from therapist to soul coach, I am now bridging the gap between psychotherapy and consciousness of the higher self.
Soul Coaching looks at themes beyond a baseline standard of functioning and wellness. It focuses on helping people access consciousness on a deeper and more meaningful level.
I created my own version of coaching for people who are looking to attain a higher level of consciousness about who they are and the energies operating around them so that they can decode the information and manifest their highest good. Highest good can include anything from finances to career path to relationships.
The beauty of the work is that it takes into account everyone’s unique life path, gifts, talents, and overall desires. This means that soul decoding will have different focuses depending on the client and what’s decoded as well as what they want – and choose – to do with it.
Early on in my career I realized that I had a natural tendency to offer holistic consciousness interventions in my work with people. I didn’t have a name for what it was I was drawn to because I was still exploring that area in my own personal life.
I thought, “I wish I had someone to guide me, to educate me on the movement and flow of energy around me so that I could increase my connection to my higher self and my path.”
What I slowly began to realize was that as human beings, because we cannot always be operating from a high-minded place, it’s uniquely helpful to know how to navigate and understand how to be masterful in both the physical and spiritual realms of living.
Most of my clients needed to be assessed from a holistic perspective.
Holistic, meaning looking at the whole person and the energy in and around them. I began to supplement my psychotherapy assessment with questions about how things felt in their body as they approached certain interactions, places, people, and even thoughts. I started reading various forms of energy in their responses —> that eventually led me into posing additional questions —> that would ultimately help them to unlock greater understanding about energetic processes that were unfolding—> leading to the manifestation of a whole host of other things in their life.
Undergoing years of human sciences and psychology courses really gave me a great foundation for understanding and applying intervention to processes and stuck points that people experience in life.
In my personal life, I slowly began to immerse myself in the world of spirituality and teachings around deeper and expanded forms of consciousness. This allowed me to really compare notes and evaluate different interventions from different healing modalities.
I will admit that at first I was truly torn between what I was initially taught about how to approach therapeutic work and the new metaphysical modalities I was learning.
After a lot of time “soul searching”, I came to the conclusion that I truly did not have to choose one over the other.
It was more important to me to approach the work of helping people heal from the most authentic place possible and that that is a huge part of being in true service to others.
From this point forward I would be coaching people who were ready and willing to look at their lives with an added perspective that would not take anything away from their values or goals, but rather open their eyes to see beyond the 3-D nature and integrate what I like to call the “5-D” or spiritual realms that exist too.
The Soul Coaching process involves an initial breakdown of what’s existing in the energy of the person on a deeper and more abstract level. I call this the soul decoding phase because we are essentially decoding greater foundational aspects of what’s going on, in order to manifest the client’s overall abundance in whatever area that may be.
The approach to decoding can include various modalities, depending on each person, and what resonates with their assessment needs. The decoding process can include looking at past life experiences, intuitive readings, breaking down and understanding energy in the body, working with blockages, looking at energy movement in relationships with others and within the self. Meditation and intuitive channeling can be done during a coaching session to assist clients with moving energy and blockages in real time.
