This has never particularly interested me, though it's what a lot of people who come to me for coaching, and what a lot of us want, when our lizard-brains are doing the talking: a quick fix to make us feel better/ get what or where we think we want to go or be.
That type of coaching has it's place and brings rewards of a kind, but I've always encouraged my clients to look deeper towards where their experience of life is coming from. I've always tried to probe and to push us both towards looking towards cause rather than symptoms, to look to what's deeply true, rather than what's superficially so.
I didn't quite know what I was pointing to, it was just a feeling, a surety I had, that clients were never 'broken', they didn't really need coaching or me, that they had everything they needed to thrive in life, they'd just lost sight temporarily of that truth, that part of themselves. I would tussle with myself and them, wanting more for us, but not quite knowing how to REALLY get there. And often, though we snuck beneath the surface as much as we could, our main focus was the job at hand: how to get from A to B. We got results and people seemed to enjoy our time together, but I always knew there was more.
It was a funny thing: knowing there was a place I was trying to point people, but not having the words to describe the facts I knew to be true as I didn't quite know what the facts were in an intellectual sense, I just.....well, sensed them.
What's new, and different, and incredibly exciting, is that since coming across the Three Principles understanding 2 years ago I have that vocabulary, I have that missing piece of the jigsaw puzzle, I have the words (to the best of my current ability) to describe the indescribable, the palpable, yet formless principles which explain how human experience works.
The impact on my work with clients is mind-boggling - they're seeing things faster and deeper, and the beauty of this understanding is, that as we catch a glimpse of it, as our understanding and consciousness about how we create our experience of (all aspects of our) life deepens, so all aspects of our life begin to improve, to heal.
