During this season of Gratitude and love, I have been reflecting on all of the things that I am grateful for. A huge part of my life right now is my growing coaching business. I started volunteering as a life coach about 6 years ago, and I found that I had a natural knack for it. Now, I have my own business, training by one of the best coaching schools, www.ipeccoaching.com/, and on my way to applying for my ICF membership, www.coachfederation.org/.
As I reflect back to all the life-lessons, coaches, classes & spiritual teachers that have helped form me, and the unique, specific wisdom and coaching I have to offer, one of the women that come to mind is Pamela Wilson. http://www.pamelasatsang.com/. She is simply amazing and delightful.
Pamela Wilson is one of my favorite spiritual teachers. As a Life Coach, I have a deep love of questions. Pamela’s questions go really, really, deep, and I admire the grace with which she asks them. She really KNOWS that she (and everyone) is consciousness or "the sage", and that all experiences, feelings, ect are coming to you (the sage) to find out the truth about themselves. I have been honored to see her several times. This is a recorded Satsang: http://vimeo.com/9970344 that I think is a great example of her work, and her website is: http://www.pamelasatsang.com/
I use her philosophy and practices with my coaching, with myself, and with my family - with AMAZING results. For example, my son will come home from school all upset because someone hurt his feelings, I will let him vent, and then I will sit on the couch with him and ask him, "wow, what do you think it must be like to be that feeling?..ahh, that poor feeling! can you take that feeling (of hurt), and give it a hug?"...and I lead him into the place of "the sage", the true you, (that is always present, even amongst the biggest pain and suffering). When he is at a place of non-suffering, of oneness, we can discuss a choice of action... if it's even needed then...but at least then we have "clear seeing" to create action from. I am teaching my son that reacting from fear or pain does not create the best results, and I am giving him optimal tools to use to create the life of his dreams.
This a good example of why I specialize in relationships, specifically committed partnerships and families. Assisting families to live with passion, trust their intuition, communicate with love & have healthy boundaries is an honor. I believe one of the best gifts that parents can give their children is an education in emotional intelligence
Although my modality, and unique energy, is very different then Pamela’s, she has taught me so much, and I honor her. Thank you, Pamela!
