Have you ever felt a little disconnected and lost in life? A Spiritual Life Coach might be just what you need to regain sight. Spiritual life coaches help individuals have a solid and consistent north star in their lives, particularly in these challenging days.
Since the start of 2020 with the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a lot of change in people’s lives. From lost jobs causing financial insecurity to isolation causing anxiety and depression, many people are re-thinking how they exist in this world. In fact, in the USA alone, 4 in 10 adults reported symptoms of anxiety and depression disorders over the course of the pandemic (2020-2021). This is up from 1 in 10 during 2019.
An increasing number of people are finding more importance in having stronger connections to family, community, and to oneself. Healing old traumas and finding meaningful purpose in life is squeezing out material and monetary desires. This is why Spiritual Life Coaches are here to help guide us.
A Spiritual Life Coach is the neutral yet nurturing person we sometimes need when facing difficult times. They help us see the blocks causing our problems and gain a new perspective of the bigger picture.
This may be to heal trauma, relieve anxiety, discover purpose, or guide us to see the world with more love.
The approach of many coaches is to help you, their client, explore and understand your connections to the Universe. With their help, we are able to see the world as energy and how we can work with it, react, and respond in an empowering way.
To get a better understanding of the role of a spiritual coach, we reached out to a coach offering online services to discuss what sets their work apart from other coaches, therapy or counselling.
From chatting with Moonflower&Co we get an idea of what to expect when choosing to work with a spiritual coach.
Traditionally, when we are feeling weighed down we seek out some form of counselling such as therapy. This can be challenging for two reasons. One being that sometimes, you need to meet and filter through a few before you find a comfortable match. Second, it can become costly per hour.
If our troubles are with money and job security, hiring a Career Coach is a route that we can take. They focus on how you can fit into society’s expectations in the work force. However, working with a Spiritual Coach is a greater in-depth and personal experience. You are choosing a journey to create a stable path outside of standard society limits.
To describe how she sets apart from these mainstream outlets, the coach herself at MoonFlower & Co expresses, “the biggest defining factor that makes a spiritual life coach different than the career or life coaches in the world, is that working with myself we focus on YOU. You have the power. You control the progress, the healing, the redesign of who you are.”
What she wants to reinforce is that the goal of a Spiritual Coach is to show the client how they can feel empowered from their soul, outward.
MoonFlower specifically offers her coaching to women, with emphasis on utilizing their feminine power. However, there are coaches with programs for all types of people and their needs. You will identify areas of focus from self- love to relationships, and tapping into purpose and abundance through personal career goals.
She let’s us know to expect difficult shadow work for breaking harmful patterns and ridding ourselves of toxic relationships, both of which inhibit our true purpose. Your Spiritual Coach will create a program for you including aspects of spiritual and wellness practices. This may come in the form of journaling and meditations, and using tools such as tarot and herbal medicines.
They will assist you in seeing the bigger picture and discovering the path for yourself. Nonetheless, you hold the responsibility in your journey, and your coach will keep you accountable with weekly to monthly check-ins.
Embarking on a spiritual journey can be a confusing and lonely. Reconnection to the soul self is rarely that easy. That is why there are Spiritual Coaches here to help.
The more we make aware the need, the more these spiritual workers are going to keep answering the call. In MoonFlower’s heartening words, “it is [spiritual work] the way into a future of a more peaceful, healthier, and happier planet as a whole.”
Background I offer spiritual readings (www.katiedawnanderson.com) which include a variety of metaphysical tools. I work primarily with the subconscious and tapping into emotional or mental blocks that prevent a person from living their fullest spiritually. In my opinion, there is a great need to connect the conscious mind to the unconscious in whatever means necessary. […].
About Me I’m an active 37-year-old woman, scuba instructor, and world traveler. I’ve always been someone that’s jumped into life with both feet. My family laughs at my clumsy disaster-prone ways and sees me as someone that accidents ‘happen’ to. I’ve learned like a Roomba – that when you bump into things, you turn the […].
The use of alternative and complementary therapies has risen over the last several years. Today, alternative medicine practices are, in some segments, taking as much as an important role as conventional medicine. One of the reasons driving this emerging adoption is the incorporation of alternative techniques in conventional medicine. In addition, several pieces of research […].
