Coaching and Meditation are connected
What is coaching?
And what is the link between coaching and meditation? Why am I always going on and on about meditation?
Let me explain the fundamental principle, and the reasons why these two are better together.
Coaching is a process of facilitation. It is a relationship that is designed so that you can overcome your obstacles and challenges, and learn to be more present and in the moment, and so you can create a compelling future so that you can actualize your greatest potential.
Having a coach will help you identify blind spots, and hold you accountable so that you can be consistently taking powerful action towards what you are aiming to achieve. A coach will help you to become more present, but bringing your attention to areas that you may be avoiding, and may need encouragement to face.
Now let’s just clarify…
What is meditation?
Meditation is a process of learning to calm the conscious mind (the only reason it isn’t calm is because it’s either stuck in the past or future), dissolve unconscious imagery (means healing trauma, reframing circumstances or perceptions that aren’t useful), and reach the center of consciousness (be present).
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” – Carl Jung
Do you see the similarity? Well, the point is that meditation helps you to actualize your greatest potential, and so does coaching. And if you put them together, you are just supporting yourself in the most profound way.
Coaching that doesn’t have meditation at its core, is like playing dominoes with one domino. You might flick that one domino over, but it’s not going to have much more impact than that.
