Divine Energy and The Sacred Self
There dwells within all human a divine energy. The power of this energy permeates our entire being and permits us to perform every function in the vast repertoire of human thoughts and behaviors. There are two aspects to this divine energy.
Inner vs Outer Universe
The outer aspect causes the heart to beat, the lungs to inflate and the senses to function–it essentially keeps our physical bodies alive. The inner aspect of this energy is dormant, but it can be awakened.
This inner universe is vaster than the outer universe. Inner joy makes all joy that is experienced in the world of the senses seem meaningful. When the divine light within you is experienced directly, it adds radiance to life, unlike anything that can be described with words or pictures.
When we discover our sacred self, we awaken this dormant inner energy and let it guide our lives. The word most commonly used to describe this inner force is “spiritual”.
Helping Clients Discover Their Sacred Self
How do you facilitate the sacred self for your client?
First, you must make a strong commitment to the process, starting with trying the methods for yourself before use on any client. Try to set a few moments aside to meditate in silence, or listen to your favorite meditation podcast. While you do, rid your mind of all negativity. Visualize a virtual trash bin, and discard all the garbage in your mind.
When you’ve completely emptied your thoughts from the business of your life, focus on the nature that surrounds you – and if you aren’t outside, find something to hone in on like a dimly-lit candle, a plant, or maybe just a good book of poetry. Now, do this for the client.
You can see that this is not something that is not done lightly, without practice or experience. You must coach clients to spend “alone time” with their sacred self so that they can acquire a sense of their footing, and to “welcome the unknown into their world.”
You may find that you have to instruct clients on how to meditate. Describe clearly how you want them to close their eyes and feel the all-empowering love of anything divine to flow through every part of their living body, every cell and every breath. Continue meditation instruction by coaching the client to breathe deeply as if the client was gaining their first breath of fresh air in the spring – when doing this meditation exercise during a coaching session, have the client now open their eyes.
What is Your Client Searching For?
Persuade clients to think about what it is that they are searching for in life. Ask the client to learn how this process can help them, by repeating it daily… to discover the passions that will help you coach them to be able to create the destiny that each client wants. This requires open communication and feedback during coaching discourse. As your client learns to trust you, this type of communication will grow.
When your client has awakened their inner consciousness, they are suddenly more aware and more tuned into their sacred self; and the answers that were slow in coming in the past, are now within your client’s mind’s eye…and within their reach. Ideally, your client will see that the vision that is gained through learning and connecting with their sacred self is not only your client’s intuitive consciousness but also their inner guide to fulfilling their destiny (or at least their holistic health goals).
