‘The word enthusiasm means ‘filled with a god.'” So what makes you enthusiastic? Follow it. . . .And you know what my answer would be – where your enthusiasm is. So I have a little word: follow your bliss. The bliss is the message of God to yourself. That’s where your life is. – Joseph Campbell
Depth life coaching focuses on helping you to find your enthusiasm, your bliss, and to learn to trust and move with it so that you feel alive, purposeful, happy and content. This contentment will be found in your daily activities, who you are surrounding yourself with, how you care for yourself, your health, your finances, your environment and your self growth. These areas of life will come into balance when you ask the deeper questions and learn to trust your purpose and your bliss.
Depth life Coaching focuses on finding your path by exploring your inner resources. Unlike depth psychology, the focus is on not on unconscious emotional dysfunction but on enrichment. For example, instead of applying a diagnosis to a person, while offering a treatment such as cognitive behavior therapy or medication, depth life coaching approaches your life from a belief that the body and mind are intertwined. If you are having trouble with your career, personal, or relationship goals, health concerns, we will pursue development in all areas. Allowing creative solutions to evolve and learn to trust and act on our solutions that arise. Alignment with your personal truth and acting upon it will improve the quality of your life.
For example, how many people are living the life they want, are physically and emotionally healthy and vibrant, in a relationship that is loving and promotes self growth, and a job that feels fulfilling? Depth life coaching helps you to tap into your unconscious source of fulfillment and what barriers are preventing you from acting on those deep creative solutions.
For example: Your life may be depressing, and has been for years due to ignoring what you want or love because you were told it’s selfish to pursue and assert yourself and/or act in your best interest. Depression is many times the result of depressed feelings which may eventually manifest in your body as fatigue, body pains, and even disease. You try medication, therapy, and behavioral methods to improve your mood but on a deeper level you still are afraid to “be selfish” to assert your strength, to change your level of comfort, whether it is financial comfort or even avoiding fear of alienation from those who won’t approve of you taking action in your life. Taking responsibility for your bliss, your joy, has consequences so you avoid the possibility of more beauty, bliss, purpose, and lightness. Many choose to take medication and continue to live life in black and white instead of in color, which creates more negative thoughts about yourself and ongoing depression.
Depth life coaching is based on Jungian theory and Eriksonian stages of development. The goal is enrichment of your life, not dealing with dysfunction. Life is a process full of transitions and opportunities to choose the path that brings you more joy and purpose. Let’s explore this together.
