So, what do I do?
I am helping people to have more ease, confidence and joy in life. I am creating a safe place for them to explore their understanding of their lives, and I share some truths about how the life works and how their experience of life is created through the power of thought. I am guiding people towards recognition of their innate wisdom, and showing the direction towards their inner peace and happiness, their innate resilience and the incredible place within them of higher clarity and higher performance.
The difference I would like to make is to introduce as many people as I can to the inside-out understanding of life. Because I am amazed how much easier the life becomes with this understanding, how people who see these truths become more compassionate and supportive towards each other. When we know that everybody makes up their own reality, we see how so many difficulties we seem to face in our everyday life are not facts but simply illusions. How “we are afraid not of what we think we are afraid of, we are afraid of what we think” (Michael Neill) And what is left to get to where we want to be from where we are is not that difficult or scary anymore.
To be honest, I am totally fascinated by this understanding in itself. Seeing how the life actually works, how the principles play out in each and every moment, and being able to speak of them in true confidence is a big change compared to all other theories, rules, “31-step guides” and other good ideas which seemed to be directed towards helping, but brought only short-term clarity and never were truly sustainable. I am really drawn to staying in the conversation about the principles, not because I am expecting it would help me to “fix” me or some part of my life, but because I am really curious to see what is there to see.
Now, I am excited about stepping out into an adventure and knowing that I will be OK no matter what. Previously, I would be afraid of the outcomes, because I thought that they mattered. I thought that a “failure” would say something about me, about me being not good enough, about me not doing the “right things”… Now I see that the failure is what we decide it to be, and we are always making it up. Yes, we might not reach the outcome we set out to achieve. So what?
The truth is that our happiness, worth and loveability are never on the line. They are always ours, always there. And when we understand that, we can tap into much vaster inner and outer resources to bring to life what we want to make.
Right now, I see coaching as the best-fit medium in my current situation to bring this out into the world (and in December 2015/January 2016, I am even offering 100 hours of free coaching conversations in hope to reach more people with the impact of my work). In the long-term, I would also like to experiment with other media, such as public speaking, books, workshops, retreats, training programs.
I think that this understanding at the level of insight, at the level of seeing it for themselves (and not just intellectually as a good idea) could benefit anyone. I suspect that there are people having glimpses of the inside-out nature of life, but because the outside-in is so spread in our modern culture, in the way the society is organized, it is so easy to be taken away from the truth. It certainly happened to me in the previous years: I knew that the outer stuff would not make me happy, but on my own I could not stand within that knowing, I could not hold that ground for a long time. And a month with a coach really made a difference for me, so that’s what I want to share with others.
Also, for myself the biggest shift that has happened so far is going from much struggle and a lot of suffering to inner peace, comfort and confidence. As a consequence, that is the area where I can share the most at the moment, this is the type of people who have higher chances for a quicker and a more profound transformation while working with me. I think I can also nudge those who are doing OK and “fine” towards higher peace of mind, freedom and thriving. For the people who are already doing great but know that they could do even better, I will be learning together with them. I still know where to point them to, but in that work I will be even more a compass and even less a guide.
And in conclusion, I would say that no one really “needs” a coach. Each person has innate mental health and live in their happiness. But I believe that coaching is fun, it is a way to explore the edges and extend the depth and the richness of our life experience even further.
If you are interested in working with me, leave a comment or send me a message, and I will be in touch shortly!
Enjoy your day! ;)
P.S. I think this is a substantial shift from the spring’s post.
