Let’s talk about energy.
We all possess it, manipulate it and even desire it.
Energy isn’t inherently good or bad but our perceptions can color the energy we’re receiving and putting back out.
For example, you feel down, stuck, the world is against you … that becomes the energy you exude and in turn the energy you attract back to you.
Being at a low energy shifts our perspective to the more negative things in life. There can be plenty of good but at a low energy there’s a higher chance you miss it or perceive it as not good.
Coaching is about helping one raise that energy level. A coach can guide you through negative beliefs that affect your perception and help you create new beliefs that support a higher energy level.
This is one of the things that has fascinated me about coaching because it’s something I have seen play out in myself and others.
I also think it’s important to recognize that you have to do the work in these situations. Sitting around waiting for an improvement to just fall into your lap does not work. Additionally, if you perceive most things as negative then you’re less likely to dive in and do the work necessary to get what you want.
We have to take tangible steps towards raising our energy and getting the things we truly desire in life.
Coaching brings this full circle by allowing me to help others do the work which I find amazingly fulfilling. It gives me the tools needed to bring my “hippie energy” mindset into a realm of using it to concretely help others.
The whole energy aspect of this coach training (and coaching in general) has been one of my favorite parts. I feel like I could write something way more comprehensive on it but I also don’t want to get too long winded in my posts.
