I’m re-launching my holistic health coaching program. I became a health coach many years ago because people kept asking me health-related questions and I wanted to be more informed and also because my sister was doing the program and it sounded interesting to me. Haha. Truth!
Becoming a health coach was an interesting process and initially once I became certified and got clients MOST of those clients just wanted to lose weight.
What I really wanted, at my core, was to teach people how to have a healthier relationship to food and exercise. And to do this from a spiritual place.
But I didn’t know how to say that. And actually I felt a little afraid people would judge or not want to work with me if I said the “S” word – spirituality.
Now, spirituality is a non-negotiable for me. All that really means is, I can’t not have it come up with the people I spend most of my time with. It doesn’t mean I force anything on anyone, but that the way I explain and understand most things in life comes from a spiritual place.
And so as I’m rebuilding my holistic health coaching program I am finally offering something that feels like a huge YES.
It feels like me because i’m not asking anyone to weigh themselves. EVER.
I’m not asking people to never eat certain foods.
I’m not asking people to watch as their waste band shrinks.
I mean, I never really asked people to do these things in the first place. But I feel more firm in my convictions now than ever.
I’m teaching people to love what they’ve already got.
OK, at the very least to accept what they’ve already got.
The body that God gave them.
The mind God gave them.
The soul God gave them.
You have to accept yourself and your circumstances, at all times. Or growth just will not happen. It might happen for a split second, but then you’ll go back to old habits and patterns.
So I ask this of my clients – accept yourself and your circumstances AT ALL TIMES. Then watch as you grow.
So growth starts from the place of true acceptance.
Once you get THAT ^^^ everything begins to fall into place.
That is a promise.
