Spiritual Psychology as a concept is often frowned upon in the coaching world. It is considered a “dogma”, and a waste of time.
But, in our experience, spiritual psychology has proved to be one of the greatest strengths for any coach, or life coach. Simply put, when coaching practices are more ingrained with spiritual psychology, it is easier and faster, to bring about transformation in clients.
As human beings, we have many bodies. We have our physical body of course. Then we have our psychological body, which is also something we are aware of. And finally, we have our spiritual body.
While coaching, we usually tend to focus on the first two. For example, if you are a health coach, you may be focused on your client’s physical body. If you are a life coach, you deal with the psychological aspect of your client.
But the third aspect, that is our spiritual body, is often ignored.
Why Is Spiritual Psychology Such A Game Changer?
It is easy to ignore our spiritual body, simply because this is an area that is relatively new in the coaching world.
Think about this…
Have you ever found your clients in situations where they are constantly hitting the wall? Situations where they are just not able to have a breakthrough?
It has probably led you to wonder, what am I missing here?
Yes, you are working on your client’s mindset.
Yes, you are focused on all the tools and techniques for creating transformation.
And yet, you simply feel stuck.
This missing piece can be an integration of your psychological practices, with the much more effective tool of your spiritual practices.
The use of spiritual psychology to create abundant breakthroughs in your clients gives birth to a whole new dimension of possibilities.
If you are someone who is open to trying new things, and is driven to help others live in purpose, this video guide is for you.
5 Steps To Integrate Spiritual Psychology In Your Coaching
Before we proceed, understand this: not everyone will resonate with this practice.
In a lot of scenarios, spirituality is still associated with dogma and religion.
But in reality, it is so much more.
Keep an open mind, and read on.
1. Build Your Coaching Philosophy
The first step to embracing spiritual psychology in your coaching, is to build a solid coaching philosophy.
This is where you spend the most time.
Research the field of spiritual coaching thoroughly. Read up the experiences of successful master coaches in the field. And attend free training sessions on the topic.
Once you are familiar with this field, ask yourself,
How will I integrate spirituality with psychology, in my coaching sessions?
What is the coaching philosophy that I want to believe in?
What are the coaching tools and techniques I will use to further my philosophy in my sessions?
2. Identify Your Ideal Clients
It’s very important to know your specific audience. Who are the people who will resonate with what you have to offer? Who are the people who will not be open to it?
Because spiritual psychology is a relatively new dimension of coaching, many people might not be able to grasp the concept. It might not make sense to them.
Have a very strong clarity on who it is for, and who it’s not for.
3. Coach, Coach, And Coach Some More
Embrace the unknown, and the uncomfortable. Open your mind to a narrative that is beyond what can be cognitively explained.
Keep coaching, but try to go beyond mindset and psychology. Embrace the ebb and flow of spiritual energy while you are developing your spiritual psychology practices.
4. Build Short Term Coaching Packages
You will find that people might resist long term commitments with spiritual coaching. That’s because this is a non-traditional coaching methodology which can be uncertain and unknown to many.
That’s why, we encourage you to start with short term coaching packages, something that is easy for your client to say “yes” to!
Do a 30 day engagement with your clients – and do it so well, that your clients will want to re-enroll with you for a long term commitment. Moreover, when the commitment is short term, your clients are more energized, and you will likely see way better results…sometimes even in just one coaching session!
5. Serve Deeply
The foundation to finding success with any type of coaching is to serve.
You are embarking on a new and profound coaching journey with spiritual psychology, so ensure that you give your best.
Serve deeply…for this will create the best impact.
Serve consistently…for this will give you confidence to grow as a spiritual coach.
Serve frequently…for this will help you engage more and more people.
The missing piece in your coaching practice is spirituality.
Even after going through all of the steps above, you may find yourself struggling to really grow as a spiritual coach, or a spiritual life coach.
