THE BEATING HEART OF MY COACHING
My heart to heart emotional coaching technique is the beating heart of my fertility coaching.
Each of the 5 steps lays the foundations for gently emotionally supporting you and helping you return to emotional well-being throughout your journey.
It took me years to get there, but I started to understand. It's not all about crossing things off on a list. It's also about what goes on in our heart.
Feeling heart-felt support on our journey is what carries us through.
We live in a society where complex emotions like fear, anger, jealousy, doubt, anxiety and hopelessness are often shunned.
So we might bottle up and suppress these emotions or numb them. Here you can allow yourself to feel whatever you are feeling. No judgement, no making it pretty, no laughing it off or making light of anything. Just being with your feelings, honouring them, and releasing any stagnant energy if and when you are ready.
Do you remember why you started on your journey? We get so caught up in the doing that we tend to forget about the why. Think back how you were feeling at the beginning. What were your desires? What were your dreams? Who did you share your emotions with? How did you express them? With my Remember Me exercise, you can return to those feelings, take a look at them and remember them. You can see how they feel in the present moment.
Those complex emotions may still come back but this step will bring in a new layer. You can reconnect with feelings that bring you joy. You can rediscover feelings you may have forgotten about, open yourself up to receive them and play with them again. You can also develop inside and out nourishment practices, bringing them into your every day. To renew is a commitment to coping - in a way that brings you a feeling of both peace and growth.
Certain limiting beliefs about yourself may now be part of you. They may be critical or mean beliefs that drag you down and silently punish you. Here you can learn how to reframe these beliefs so that they benefit you, see you, hear you, love you, are kind to you. Reframing is not about erasing your limiting beliefs but about being aware of them and their effect on your emotions so you can watch them ebb and flow and choose to choose again.
This is a powerful step as it reignites the path back to the authentic you. It puts you back in the driving seat. You decide how you want to feel. You get to feel however you want to feel, working with your emotions. At this point, you know how to put your feelings into words and express yourself freely. You know which practices benefit you most in different situations. You show up for yourself and your emotions on a daily basis.
