Often we take up a kind of space inside without conscious awareness of what that space holds, or doesn’t hold for us.
Often, we need a present, presence of another to ask, inquire, pause and reflect with a curious, humble, and genuinely interested person who is focused on making the space to illuminate and bring forward what’s going on inside without knowing what will be found.
The deeper vulnerable aspects of us are often not readily accessible with just any kind of space. There’s a shyness that marks this kind of space, a hiding, and yet a longing to come out of hiding. What can call forth this coming out of hiding?
Deep and abiding presence without pretense or a hidden agenda to “fix” you, but rather to know and see you, and deeply respect all that shows up.
I believe this kind of space is healing, transformational, illuminating, and deeply spiritual. This kind of seeing and witnessing inside ourselves, while another witnesses and holds this kind of space is profoundly divine and yet, based in human to human connection.
This kind of showing up isn’t for the faint at heart. It takes incredible courage because this is risk-taking in the most profoundly vulnerable level – being fully seen. This act is one of honor and courage.
We’ve learned many defensive mechanisms to avoid this at all costs, yet we also crave this kind of nurturing presence like a baby craves being safely and warmly held. It’s innate. It is also something I’ve found that is contagious. When you’ve experienced being in this kind of space, you will start to pass this kind of space-making onto first yourself, then to others. It’s contagious in an empowering and soul-freeing way.
Learning to tune into our emotions on the way to taking up residence in this space is an act of defiance against our self-sabotaging fears, as well as an act of taking back core energies that we need in order to thrive. This often requires us to do some work in practicing feeling some intense discomfort and knowing that these discomforts come and go, and strengthen us with each passing wave.
Often we need the present, presence of another while we expand our level of conscious awareness while the ego or old survival patterns pull out all of their stops to keep us inside an outdated comfort zone.
My coaching style involves a combination of inquiry, curiosity, gentleness, and authenticity. This isn’t about perfection or propriety, rather this intentional presence gives you permission to show up authentically with me. My commitment is to bring in the full presence of my intuition, curiosity, and honoring the trust-seeking to usher in this kind of space where you will also practice ushering in this kind of space for yourself and others. It’s a practice for yourself that’s so incredibly worthwhile, just like you. I’d be honored to join you on this part of your journey.
