A quick bit about life and business coaching:
“How does coaching apply to life outside of sports? As a result of programming in primary school and on through high school and college, people are taught to follow a hierarchal system where clocks and alarms tell them what to do, when to do it and how it ought to be done. Most succumb to this system without a second thought.”
No one compels you, traveler;
this road or that road, make your choice!
Dust or mud, heat or cold,
fellowship or solitude,
foul weather or fairer sky,
the choice is yours as you go by.
But here if you would take this path
there is a gate whose latch is love,
whose key is single and which swings
upon the hinge of faithfulness,
and none can mock, who seeks this way,
the king we worship shamelessly.
If you would enter, traveler,
into this city fair and wide,
it is forever and you leave
all trappings of the self outside.
– Jane Tyson Clement
One of the most common pieces of advice that you’ll hear from nearly all self-help guru’s is that the fastest way to success is to find a coach, mentor or role model that can help you achieve your goal much faster. Have you heard this before? I know I have. Everyone from Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy, and countless other “guru’s” preach the same advice.

In the twentieth century, science and technology finally advanced to be able to prove what indigenous cultures have known for thousands of years: All things are made of energy. Humans, as energetic beings, are constituted of energy fields that combine to manifest the physical body, the mental and emotional bodies, and other domains that are less obvious to our five physical senses.
Disruption to the human energy field is a precursor to illness, dysfunction and adversity. Energy therapy may address physical health, emotional trauma, self-rejecting beliefs, karmic influences and other conditions related to energy blocks and distortions.
Energy therapy augments the natural healing abilities innate to all living beings. The energy therapist serves as an open channel to ever-present healing forces, augmenting those energies with the power of conscious intention for the client to heal, learn and thrive. Healing can take place without conscious action or knowledge by the client. All that is required of the client is a willingness to release the trauma, lie or blockage; and accept a higher state of grace.
Through energy therapy, clients may experience conscious reconnection with what matters most in life. Emotional blocks may lessen or dissolve and existing negative patterns may come to conscious awareness, to be deliberately altered. Recognizing that only Spirit can heal; the therapist’s role is to partner with the client to support healing and growth in the moment.
Each session is unique and client specific, as the energy therapist responds to intuitive guidance throughout the session. Energy therapy may entail a hands-on process onsite, or may be experienced “long distance.” Location does not impact the effectiveness of energetic therapy, as the quality of energetic connection does not attenuate with distance.
Energy therapy is not a religious activity and invokes no religious references.
We can all agree that being in the present can help us pause, reflect and make conscious decisions rather than reacting. It can help us live happier lives, connect with family and friends and get in touch with our higher purpose.
But how exactly do we “reach” mindfulness? What does it “look” like?
