Life Coach Courses through Hummingbird Therapy
Disclaimer Please note: I am not a professional therapist, hypnotherapist or life coach
nor do I hold any type of life coaching certification.
I am a writer with an imaginative mind. My writing is based upon my life experiences, lessons and topics I have researched.
I, like many others am still in the process of learning and evolving as personal growth in my opinion is a life long process.
In no way, shape or form should this article be perceived or misconstrued as professional advice or an exact science.
So what exactly is a life coach? A Life coach is a one-on-one relationship with another individual or as in this case a magnificent little companion who is capable of offering guidance, spiritual enlightenment and support. A good life coach, in my opinion, is one who is capable of offering guidance through a variety of different methods.
Anne Sullivan Macy
When I think of an extraordinary life coach, I think of Anne Sullivan Macy, known as the miracle worker, and her one-on-one relationship with Helen Keller.
Although Anne’s relationship with Helen started out as a teacher /student relationship; in the years to follow she became more of a companion / mentor or what may be referred to today as a Life Coach.
Ms Sullivan's life not only exemplifies the ultimate true meaning of a personal and professional life coach, it goes above and beyond.
Therefore, life coaching is a powerful process through multidimensional techniques that have the capabilities to open up your psyche to new pathways of learning.
Anne Sullivan "The Miracle Worker"
One example may be to transform negative thoughts, patterns, behaviors into positive thoughts, and healthier ways to cope.
Where as, a more complex and creative method would be where Anne Sullivan taught Helen Keller how to speak by drawing the letters on her hand and placing her hand to her lips when she verbalized each sound.
In essence through her creative and multidimensional techniques she created new pathways for Helen to see the world. As in Helen Keller's case it was a miracle. It was like getting a fresh new pair of eyes and ears.
Anne Sullivan, started out attending the school for the blind. When she graduated she was hired as a personal teacher for Helen Keller. Helen Keller was deaf, dumb and blind. She was known as the wild child due to her angry out bursts from her frustrations of not being able to communicate.
Anne carried with her the skills that she learned at Perkins School for the blind and incorporated them into her work with Helen. Anne had all of the essential qualities that are required to be a Personal Life Coach. In fact, you might say, Anne redefined the meaning of a Personal Life Coach.
Anne went above and beyond her teaching. Anne saw something in Helen that no one else could see. Anne believed in her. Through her fierce determination to have Helen succeed in being able to understand and communicate, she became creative in her endeavors. In addition to spelling the letters on her hand and placing Helen's hand to her lips, she started placing the object of the word she was spelling into Helen's hand to feel.
Taking Helen to the well one day while placing Helen's hand under the water as she feverishly went back and forth using this technique resulted in a miraculous break through for both of them. For the first time in Helen's life she began to understand the meaning of words. Anne became famously known as, "The Miracle Worker." Anne's dedication and perseverance paid off. Her vision became real.
Thus, she did not stop here. Anne went above and beyond her duties and a teacher. She had found her calling with Helen and remained by her side the remainder of her life.
Life Coach Courses and Hummingbird Therapy
There are many different life coaching courses that one can take to become a certified life coach. The courses that one might take would coincide with the type of coach one wants to be. There are various types of coaches and courses such as; Life Coach Courses, Spiritual Life Courses, Personal Life Coaches, Career Life Coaches, etc. etc.
I will touch upon a few of the essential qualities that a coach should have. The first and foremost quality is listening. Learning to listen well, to both verbal and nonverbal is a crucial skill. Next to listening is a variety of ways to communicate effectively.
Like the hummingbird, a coach should have the ability to motivate, inspire and empower you. They should also have determination and perseverance. Many of these skills come naturally and some may need to be refined.
Like Anne Sullivan and her determination to help Helen Keller, the hummingbird is also known for its, perseverance, loyalty and ability to open one’s heart.
As we learned in my previous article the hummingbird has been known to fly over 2,000 miles during it's migration to reach its destination. The hummingbird is also known to be a loving companion once he learns to trust you.
A Holistic Approach through Hummingbird Therapy
In my previous article titled, "How to Attract Hummingbirds into Your Life!" I had stated, "My personal belief is that the hummingbird is a messenger and a guide, willing and able to teach us many valuable lessons. The hummingbird accentuates the spiritual side of life; offering spiritual direction and guidance to people as they attempt to learn, grow and deepen their relationships while here on this Earth."
By observing the hummingbird and opening your mind to new ways of learning you can learn a holistic approach to acquiring the necessary skills and becoming your own life coach.
Everything you need you have inside of yourself. What once were obstacles and struggles are extraordinarily refined into pathways of learning through enlightenment.
With the hummingbird as a spiritual life coach or guidein mind, let us continue on.
Although, it is not necessary, many life coaches are certified in other areas and have a vast array of other skills and therapeutic techniques that they incorporate into their coaching practices. Such as hypnotherapy, energy psychology, mediation, to mention a few.
I personally like to think of these techniques as 'methods of discipline' that are instrumental to our natural way of being. By refining, we are able to get back to our original state of being who we were meant to be.
With that in mind let's continue on to Energy Psychology and Hummingbird Hypnotherapy.
