WHAT IS COACHING?
A spiritual coach is someone who helps you connect to who you truly are. They work with you to change/re-direct/navigate your life, uncover your desires, take steps towards your goals, achieve your dreams, bust limiting beliefs, and remove roadblocks
A spiritual coach uses a deeper, more holistic approach. They work with you on the operating system beneath your consciousness. I’m sure you’ve seen the human psyche descried as the iceberg floating in the water; a small portion of us showing to the world and a great big portion of us under the water hiding below the surface. A spiritual coach helps you go deep into the part of your iceberg that is below the waterline. When you are able to understand, work with, change and utilize this portion of your operating system, you are able to change your life.
A spiritual coach will work with root causes instead of treating symptoms. Do you want to consciously create? Do you want to own your power? Do you desire growth, progress, abundance, love, and deep satisfaction from your life? The growth that is accomplished with a spiritual coach includes connection to the divine, working with the universe, taking control of your happiness, stepping into your power, shifting your subconscious, and much much more.
Coaching is like having an unbiased motivational friend. A coach is an accountability partner who listens to what you're going through, asks great questions, helps you design a plan, and then hold you accountable along your journey.
IF I’M ALREADY SUCCESSFUL, WOULD I STILL BENEFIT FROM A SPIRITUAL LIFE COACH?
When you look at the life coach definition we shared above, you’ll notice it does not restrict life coaches to only helping those in crisis or those who are not achieving enough. Unlike therapy, life coaching is meant to help a wide variety of people – including those who are already running successful businesses, are healthy or who have thriving relationships. Life coaches know there is always more that their clients can achieve and enjoy working with those in all stages of their lives.
CAN I BOOK AN CONSULTATION SESSION?
The best way to know if hiring a Spiritual Coach is the right thing to do is to set up a FREE Consultation Session with us. I like to call it a free strategic planning session. Why? Because we'll pinpoint exactly what's going on in your life or business, and we'll come up with at least one option to help you move forward.
HOW LONG WILL I NEED TO COMMIT TO WORKING WITH A SPIRITUAL LIFE COACH?
Every soul is evolving at different levels for maximum transformation we recommend you stay in the program for at least one year. This will allow you to build trust with your coach and develop effective strategies for you to achieve your goals.
DO SPIRITUAL LIFE COACHES WORK ON PERSONAL OR PROFESSIONAL TYPE GOALS?
Either or both. Depending on the types of life coaches you seek out, you may work with one to improve your business, start a new entrepreneurial endeavor, improve your health through diet and exercise or improve your relationships with loved ones. In many cases, a life coach will help you in multiple areas of life as they are all connected to your ultimate well-being.
WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki (pronounced “Ray-Key”) comes from a derivative of two words. One word is Rei, which means “universal”, and Ki, which means “vital life force.” So, Reiki is a healing technique where a practitioner can channel energy into the client and activate the natural healing processes using a universal, vital life force.
HOW DOES REIKI HEAL?
Reiki uses the universal life force energy to restore the normal flow to the body. It balances chakras and brings healing to the client. This is done by a Reiki practitioner either placing their hands on, or near, you and letting the Chi energy flow through them into you. Finally, your aura (energy field around you) is cleared. You are “reset”!
WHAT WILL I EXPERIENCE DURING A REIKI SESSION?
What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies somewhat from person to person. However, feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. In addition, many feel a wonderful, glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them.
Once Reiki Energy encourages you to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear and any other negative feelings, a state of peace and well-being is experienced. Some drift off to sleep or report floating outside their bodies; others have visions and mystical experiences. At the end of the treatment, one feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A REIKI SESSION?
In a standard treatment, Reiki energy flows from the practitioner’s hands into the client. The client is lying on a heated massage table, but treatments can also be given while the client is seated or even standing. The client remains fully clothed.
The practitioner places his/her hands on, or near, the client’s body in a series of sacred hand positions. These include positions around the head, shoulders, stomach, and feet. Other, more specific, positions may be used based on the client’s needs. The session usually lasts between 45 and 60 minutes.
WHAT CAN BE TREATED WITH REIKI?
Reiki has had a positive effect on all forms of illness and negative conditions. Here at Houston Reiki, we have worked on everything from head or stomach ache, cold, flu tension and anxiety to heart disease and cancer. All of these illnesses and more have responded well to Reiki. The side effects of medical treatments have also been reduced or eliminated. This includes the negative effects of chemotherapy, post-operative pain, and depression, as well as improving the healing rate and reducing the time needed to stay in the hospital.
Reiki works in conjunction with regular medical or psychological treatment. If one has a medical or psychological condition, it is recommended that one see a licensed health care professional in addition to receiving Reiki treatment.
WILL I BE CURED MY FIRST SESSION?
Very few pills, infusions, treatments, etc. can cure immediately. Reiki is the same way. You may feel much more relaxed, less anxious, peaceful and a couple of your symptoms may have abated after your first session. Reiki is a form of alternative medicine that should be used in conjunction with your other healthcare. Never stop any medications, even if you are feeling better, before consulting a physician.
CAN I RECEIVE REIKI IF I AM A CHRISTIAN?
To be clear, Reiki is not a religion or cult; it is a form of alternative healing. If anything, Reiki follows the practice of Christianity by following the steps of Jesus helping the sick. Reiki works with all forms of religion – or no religion at all.
WHEN WILL REIKI NOT WORK?
With Reiki, one must have a conscious desire in order for Reiki to work. You need to say, “I want to change where I am; I want to be empowered and balanced so that I can grow and learn.” You must have an open mind to Reiki and accept that it can help you grow.
CAN YOU DO REIKI ON MY PETS?
Yes! Reiki is a “vital life force energy which flows through ALL things.” While we may be more intelligent than our pets, they have just as much energy flowing through them as we do. Animals are usually very open to Reiki. Normally, they are very calm and relaxed during the Reiki session and when they have had enough they simply get up and walk away. Afterward, they are usually very quiet, peaceful and at ease.
CAN YOU HEAL MY DYING LOVED ONE?
While we cannot heal your dying loved one, we can help by providing pain reduction, decreased stress and assist with acceptance. All of this provides a greater sense of peace.
