Connecting to Spirit

Unless the coach is open and connected to spirit, it is hard to help others connect. When my coaching goes deep, I embody spirit, which influences my intuition and use of metaphor.

Although I have been a priest in an African Traditional Religion for over ten years, 18 months ago I considered myself cut off from spiritual awareness. I felt utterly mechanical in my rituals and offerings. I say this because if I can make the shift, I think anyone can.

In one program, I called on the ancestors to be present, invited folks to tap into social justice energy or just breathe and be mindful. One person found this alienating. Huh? I am not always sure if my spirituality is welcomed. My sense is that mainstream society is pretty divorced from real spirit in their daily lives and are guided by manipulative political-spiritual soundbites. I choose to fully step into my own spirituality, while being careful not to offend.

In my view, there are a few things coaches can do to support ourselves and our clients to step into spirit:

  • Do our own spiritual work/practice and be able to use what we learn to be aware of when spirit is present for clients. When it is, name it.
  • Ask about our client’s beliefs and share our own beliefs in the spirit of understanding and curiosity (vs. my tradition is older or better than yours).
  • Invite clients to increase their awareness of spirit in their lives. To seek it out, to ask for it. Meditation, communing with nature, music and prayer can awaken the feeling, and then we can support them in inviting that feeling in their daily lives.
  • With secular clients, use our gifts that we have developed and translate it into the language they feel comfortable with (e.g. universal connection or social movement energy vs. God or spirit.)

I connect with the larger more expansive vision of Spirit that is connected to the sacredness of all beings on this planet as well as the environment. Many of our clients need support to pull apart and differentiate these aspects in order to de-clutter their spiritual path.
