Mindfulness and the Holistic Life Journey
Before becoming a holistic life coach, Karen had been occupied with utilizing mindfulness practices on her own personal holistic health journey. She has been mentored and captivated by the true essence of living in the moment for nearly 20 years. In that time, she has concentrated her efforts in maintaining this purview as a lifestyle. She can attest to its usefulness in attaining realness, and a sense of wholeness in life. She has found it most helpful when integrating something new into her life. For example, incorporating healthier habits, or in finding ways to reduce stress.
Mindfulness practices are something that can be taught so that they are tools to be utilized on one’s own, in order to come back to the self, and in a sense, ‘hold it together.’ Nobody can take away the art of returning to our center, no matter what happens to us in life or where, or in what condition we find ourselves in. Mindfulness aids in reducing any stress during the creative process in regard to finding our way through any new endeavor. It assists in staying on track and away from allowing our past or anticipations of the future to bog us down. Mindfulness is a nourishing tool that supports our efforts towards discovering a sense of freedom in anything we set our sights on achieving. Mindfulness has become an aid in our modern society to help in coming back to ourselves, as said, and in attending to the things that really matter that are essentially eternal. In other words, we can learn to build our true selfhood, and construct our life with what is abiding through connecting with the present moment.
Further, narrative and conversation are vehicles through which we tell our stories. Successful people know they need others to achieve. We are meant to be individuals within a social structure. Both are necessary elements to help us actualize our sense of purpose and individual authenticity. If done mindfully, we are better able to listen to ourselves, and appreciate our version of our experience. We can also witness that we are heard, as well, and can hear someone else fully.
From this point of view, a new discovery may be realized that might not have been made alone. More possibilities may be identified with a new sense of ourselves through the refinement of our ideas, and thoughts through discussion. A greater possibility to realize a transformation in some area in our lives may be reached. Life coaching is cast as a co-creative relationship between coach and client through which clients’ truth is supported. Further, questions clients have are answered by the client, helping themselves with support from the coach, to move forward with their aims in a self-determining way.
