Today I had a very long and productive discussion with my friendly ‘life coach’. We first sat down for only a short chat and a cuppa. Then many hours later we were still fully immersed in our conversation. It was an emotion filled roller coaster ride.
I absolutely hated and loved it at the same time, as it was intense in stages and I don’t like me being intense with others, especially people I respect and like. However, this talk was also very reassuring and encouraging for me as I had some significant aha moments through it. Not to bog you down in the details, I redefined and reorganized some of my own values and priorities, limiting beliefs and fears. Now, that in itself was a very valuable lesson.
Afterwards, we reconciled what was most important from the session and I went away assured knowing clearly that my ‘coach friend’ also had a lot of aha moments for themselves. It was a meeting from heaven to hell and back on track.
My learning from this is, besides the above mentioned point of our conversation, that even coaches need coaches to show us the blind spots and sometimes pure lies we have been believing. Whether it be about our own abilities, skills, perceptions, beliefs or opinions. Having a life coach can help in every situation. Having my ‘coach’ meet me today, when I did need them even without knowing really why at the start, showed me something else as well. How we might sometimes live life without being aware when we need to ask for help. Also how a different perspective and respect can do miracles.
Life coaching can help us to get to the many aha moments in our life story. To bring forth the stuff that is undesirable in us and to recognize our truth. Other person’s perspective can show us the mirror that we need to see for our beliefs, especially those that act as a limiting force in our behavior.
So thank you my dear ‘life coach’ for such a great talk today. What we both seem to agreed upon is that we are all in a way guided by greater force than ourselves and both the places we find ourselves going to and people we meet are there for a reason. Sometimes we might not know straight away what the reason is. And connecting this to the bigger picture, it helps us to recognize that this life is truly given to us with a secret underlying guidance.
My recommendation from today is: “If you can’t figure life on your own, find someone to have a deep conversation with.”
Be aware and watch the space between your thoughts.
