Why a Spiritual Life Coach?

A spiritual life coach is not the necessarily the same thing as a religious leader. The main difference is that a spiritual life coach is not necessarily attached to a religion. In fact, many of them may not even practice traditional organized religion as we know it.

Is a spiritual life coach going to coach you on religion?

The short answer is: you decide. Even though they are sometimes used interchangeably and may be seen as same thing in most peoples' minds, spiritual and religious do not mean the same thing.

Every human being is spiritual, even those who resist the thought. Anybody that is kind and compassionate is spiritual. Anybody that connects with universal goodness, such as the incredible smile of a baby, the beauty of a mountain, the serenity and depth of the ocean, is spiritual.

A religious person on the other hand recognizes and worhsips a deity or dieties. He or she adheres to rules and moral guidelines set up by their religion. Suffice it to say that the two terms are not mutually exlusive. A religious person is also spiritual, and a spiritual person can choose to be or not to be religious.

So, how do you go about finding a spiritual life coach?

Most people that are religious have access to their religious leader. These leaders can serve as great spiritual coaches. They may offer advice or mentorship.

However, people seeking a spiritual life coach may not have this alternative. In fact, it may very well be that they feel more comfortable with a spiritual life coach un-affiliated with religion as such.

A spiritual life coach may work with you in such areas as meditation, or perhaps the art of prayer. Other areas they may focus on are such areas as gratitude, abundance mind set, relationship coaching, grief counselling, or even spiritual healing.

Maybe you are doing excellent in your career or health, yet you are filled with inner turmoil. That may call on you to focus on spiritual healing to get you to that place of inner peace.
