I was sixteen years old. Sitting in the National Cathedral Chapel, I felt antsy and bored, waiting to hear a lecture by a Tibetan Monk. The year was 1986, and like most Americans at the time, I knew little about Tibet, other than that it was cold. I was restless. We were in the front row. There was no chance of leaving the talk early.
The monk was the Dalai Lama, the spiritual and political leader of the Tibetan People. After the talk, I approached a woman with a shaved head and maroon robes. I asked “Where can I learn more about this?” I wanted to understand the energy I had just been part of, an energy I both knew and didn’t know anything about. This was my starting point in a lifelong journey of learning more about energy, spirituality, and presence.
This means that when people want to create more meaningful lives, they want their journey to be a soul evolution. As we slow down we realize that inner transformation happens at the spirit level, not only the physical or mental level.
Energy happens at different levels of our being. There is the energy that gets us to walk, talk and take care of our physical needs. And then there is our more subtle level of energy, from which our sense of self-worth, inner power, radiance, and love flows. At every level, energy is at work in all of us. Here are a few examples:
At the more ordinary level, we prepare ourselves for our life tasks and roles by using our energy. Right before a race, a runner not only stretches, but they find the energy they need to run, compete, and enter their athletic zone. They do this on an energetic level as well as through mindset and emotions.
When you’re about to spend time with someone you love, you prepare yourself energetically for that connection. You may become more open to receive and to give.
When you go to a rock concert, or when you hear a church choir singing in unison, the frequencies that you experience create a frequency within you. It’s emotion, thought, physical sensations, mixed together.
Of course, some situations bring the opposite. When someone treats you badly, for instance, it can feel like you’ve been hit by a truck. The impact of their words has diminished your energy.
All of us are experiencing our Energy Systems all of the time.
Not everyone knows that they can work with their Energy System to empower, restore, and create deep connections at the heart level.
However, when you become aware of and connected to your spiritual energy, the life flow inside each of us, this energy can become our greatest resource, our source of healthy love, power, and intuition.
Consider this: so many people know exactly what they need to do in their life. They have clear intentions. They have the capacity and knowledge. They have values and guiding principles.
And yet something is blocking them. And, try as they might, they can’t make the progress that they want.
I experience this in coaching all the time. Here’s an example, my client, Tom.
One day, while in a coaching session, I help Tom to bring healing to his energetic heart. He feels his heart opening in waves of inner kindness and caring. At the end of his session, he creates his own energetic heart-opening practice to do at home. He feels a new sense of emotion and connection.
One week later, Tom shares with me that he has called a woman he likes from work. They spoke for over an hour. He feels refreshed and full of courage to know himself at a new level. This is mirrored back to him by his outer world and the new friendship he has begun.
In coaching it’s often taught that lasting change comes from having a new thought, or making a new decision. I would say that’s not the whole story.
Below that new thought or decision, there is an energetic shift that goes deeper. When a person’s energy aligns with their truth, it makes action-taking easy.
One day, something seems impossible. The next day, it feels like it’s already happening.
That’s what it feels like when you have an energy shift. Not only do your thoughts change, but your enthusiasm and motivation come on board with your empowered energy.
Over the last 18 years I have personally trained over 15,000 Life Coaches at the certification level – that’s about 20% of the world’s certified coaches. My husband Mark Peysha and I are founders of Strategic Intervention and Activation™ Method Life Coaching. Every month I lead meditation and energy exercises with thousands of participants.
What I found, again and again, was that my Ayurvedic clients may have started out wanting to improve a health problem, but the coaching became about their emotions and their energy.
Later, when I became a Life Coach, it became clear to me that both Ayurvedic counseling and Life Coaching were helpful on their own. However, when they were combined, they became even more powerful. I loved the clarity that Life Coaching brought, its ability to help clients create clear goals, plan small actions, and to use strategies that helped them find their creativity and purpose.
And the framework of Ayurveda gave me tools for teaching clients through ancient wisdom traditions on the elements and the energy channels.
Around seven years ago, I started to make my meditation practice my greatest priority. It began while I was watching a Youtube video. I heard a meditation teacher tell someone that, if they were experiencing a lot of energy, they should just let themselves be with that energy. The permission I felt in that moment created a huge change.
It felt that nobody understood me when I tried to explain it. Whenever I meditated, there was a swirling sensation, sometimes around me or sometimes within me. At times it felt like I was floating. But when I’d ask a spiritual teacher what I should I do with this energy, I was told to ignore it. This left me feeling that my meditation experience was wrong.
Until this point I hadn’t believed in traditional religions, or in God. Everything changed then. All religions and faiths made sense. I was this energy, and I also knew this energy was not personal. We all have it. And I could feel the beauty and open loving awareness in every person I was with. It didn’t matter if I knew them or not. I often had deep, meaningful conversations with total strangers.
Energy was transforming my experience of life, but I didn’t know how to integrate it with my career in coaching. I didn’t know how to talk about it clearly, and so I didn’t share very much with my students or clients. I didn’t want to freak them out! I kept a thin wall between these two parts of my life.
Often what’s happening is a subtle energetic resistance or blockage. This inner resistance might have been showing up again and again for them. It’s as though what is stuck is saying, “notice me, help me!” The client sees it, they hear it, but they can’t heal it. This is where we need Energy Coaching Tools.
The internal block or resistance can also be described as low self-esteem, loss of power, or a sense unworthiness. This is where Energy Coaching can help the client to become energetically empowered. Through a new experience of healthy power and clarity, the client can take care of themselves. This may show up as taking action, listening to their real truth, and knowing their emotions are valid.
Energy Coaching helps our clients to enhance their senses, their intuition, and their ability for deep levels of transformation. Some clients will benefit from new and clear boundaries. Some will find bridges between parts of themselves, or healing gifts they receive from their higher self.
Picture someone who has a big goal for their life, but every time they approach it, they feel their energy draining out of them. They don’t feel the momentum they need to take action. And so they’re always at square one. They may convince themselves they can’t do something. Yet, they seek help because there is a very small voice within saying, “you can do it.”
In Energy Coaching, we hear and appreciate that small voice. The client learns to empower the most universal, loving and healing aspect of their being. Energy Coaching strategies and exercises work to create that inner wisdom and growth.
In Energy Coaching a client can discover how to work skillfully with the effects of these relationships within their own system. Sometimes the client has internalized that bully. In this case, the work focuses on their own healing and strengthening.
Energy is there to offer support and transformation. As an Energy Coach, you assist your client in realizing their healthy boundaries and adding the energy resources they need to honor their truth and well-being. With this new experience of self comes a lot of creativity and enthusiasm for life.
Energy Coaching goes to the deepest level of a person’s wishes while healing their obstacles and resistance. When we’re working with our Energy Coaching clients, we’re helping them tap into a subtle system within their body, spiritual being, and their essential nature that can truly empower and heal them.
Energy Coaching helps people to heal the obstacles and resistance that are preventing their concentration, joy, and zest for life. When we’re working with our Energy Coaching clients, we’re helping them tap into a subtle healing system. This is part of who they are and they can empower and heal themselves.
Energy is right here for all of us, all of the time. It’s a resource in your physical body. It’s experienced in your emotions. When we become aware of the energy within ourselves, we’re going to our deepest level of being. We are awakening our own inner guidance.
This means we have more intuition and clarity. We’re more aware of what we’re feeling, what we’re saying, what we’re doing. So we’re able to create a lasting transformation.
My client Melissa came to coaching with the goal of completing her PhD dissertation. She was on a deadline, yet stuck and not making progress.
She found that, while she knew what she needed to do, she’d feel an inner resistance to taking the steps towards her work. Over a few sessions we explored Melissa’s inner resources, such as her values and her energy helpers.
We also learned what music and colors were nurturing and supporting to her focus. Melissa could experience the sense of sound and color, and it felt energetically aligning and empowering.
During the coaching, Melissa also discovered what had been blocking her. She was having a conflict that came from her inner rebel and rule-breaker. The rebel needed to be seen and heard, and given freedom to mature.
As her coach, I followed a process that I train Energy Coaches to use. My coaching involved guiding the exercises and holding the space of connection with my own energetic clarity and truth.
With this support, Melissa was able to go from being blocked to finding flow and contentment in her work on her dissertation.
* You have an ambitious, meaningful goal, but when you approach it, something happens that feels like you are not on your own side. You self-sabotage your own healthy ambition.
* You overwork and get irritated at others. You may feel burned out. You’d like to find some balance and stability within yourself.
* The things that used to give you joy and inspiration don’t seem to work anymore. You want to discover your spark again.
* You feel oversensitive. When you are with others, it can feel as though you feel what they feel. You want to stay sensitive but also have good boundaries.
* You’d like to connect at a deep level in a relationship, but you feel a hesitancy which stops you. You want to understand emotions and share feelings in relationships.
* There are healthy habits you want to have in your life, but you lack the consistency to take action.
* What others see in you is not what you feel about yourself. This sense of not being aligned can sometimes feel like low self-esteem or a values conflict.
* You’ve been in relationships where you suspect the other person had narcissistic tendencies. And you do not want to repeat these patterns again.
An Energy Coach shows their clients how to recharge and recalibrate themselves by connecting to their own energy. The client’s real teacher is their own energy. The coach shares the method through strategies and exercises that bring out the client’s own healthy spiritual energy and wisdom. This can feel like intuition showing up fully, or like a good friend always at your side letting you know, “you got this.” This kind of coaching is empowering and easy to do. The client is setting the pace and finding their own healthy energy.
In our method of Energy Coaching, we train coaches to lead clients through an Energy Coaching process that gives the client a skill set for healing and empowering themselves.
Many of the same people who are interested in Complementary and Alternative Healing will sign up for Energy Coaching. Within this arena, Energy Coaching plays a unique role, distinct from other forms of healing. In most healing modalities, the practitioner works with the client in a hands-on way.
In contrast, the Energy Coach teaches and guides the client verbally, empowering them to develop their own relationship with healing energy. In other words, it’s the client, not the coach, who provides the energy connection for healing.
An Energy Coach typically offers a client a series of coaching sessions over the course of several months, during which the client becomes more familiar and more skilled with their Energy System.
Energy Coaching can be offered virtually, so you can work with clients all over the world from where you live. This has numerous lifestyle advantages.
Energy Coaching has a distinct advantage in that it can be offered remotely. You can have an Energy Coaching practice where you work with clients all over the world, from wherever you live. Energy Coaching can also be offered alongside other forms of healing. Many of our clients are simultaneously receiving other therapies from other practitioners.
This works well, because Energy Coaching enhances the client’s ability to empower and heal. This also works well for practitioners who want to move their practice towards being client-led, with less focus on hands-on healing work.
As Energy Coaches, we are evolving and practicing to deepen and expand ourselves every day. At the same time we are building our coaching practices and skills so that we can help more people. We are never done with our own personal evolution. Part of our development is recognizing that we are energetically large enough to be both our human self and our larger spiritual self.
Energy Coaching Values are built around Emotional and Spiritual Balance within all parts of life. We empower personal agency and resilience in every person. We offer transformational Learning that creates inner guidance. We enjoy Community Growth and support so that we learn in a warm and encouraging circle of friendship.
When we grow as Energy Coaches in a caring community, we keep ourselves real. When we work with clients and witness each client’s incredible energy, gifts, and truth, we grow within ourselves.
No matter what teachings and experiences life has given us, we can all open to our beautiful love, light and spirit. And we can do this while still healing our own suffering and pain. Through kind and loving inner motivation, we learn to honor our own path as people who are here to serve others growth as well as take care of ourselves.
