“Here is the test to find out whether your mission on Earth is finished:
If you’re alive, it isn’t.” ~Richard Bach
A life coach is a person who motivates others in the achievement of personal (or professional) objectives such as choosing or changing careers, improving relationships, setting goals and determining priorities.” (Source) Life coaches do not serve as licensed healthcare providers, nor do they provide legal or medical advice or engage in patient diagnosis. Neither do we treat or otherwise counsel those with mental illness. We are not physicians, attorneys, counselors, therapists or the like. As a life coach, our role is to encourage, coach. They do however act as facilitators of their client’s self-reflection, decision making, and planning processes.
While counselors or therapists deal with a patient’s mental/emotional conditions and/or past circumstances or trauma, a life coach never addresses such issues and strives to steer clear of such discussions. A life coach works with emotionally-healthy clients to help them assess their current life circumstances for setting goals and making plans toward a different or a better future outcome. The past is only used as a reflection tool to help determine one’s current state and future direction. Thus life coaching is future-focused and action-oriented. Life coaches are obligated to refer clients in need of mental or physical health therapy to an appropriate licensed professional.
However, a holisticA healing approach that looks at the whole person and not just their physical symptoms, in order to eradicate illness and produce well-being in the mind, body, and soul./spiritual life coach is not a traditional life coach as they incorporate alternative healing modalities, such as prayer/meditation, Reiki, chakra"Wheel" or "Vortex" - describes an energy center in the human energy field. Although there are hundreds of chakras, there are seven main chakras commonly taught in the Western world: balancing, aura cleansings, and crystal healing, into their coaching strategy. Therefore, a spiritual life coach must also strive to balance their own lives, actively working on their own lives to stay in alignment with spiritual principles (Universal Laws) toward a purposeful life of their own.
A spiritual life coach adds a mystical level which helps clients identify and uproot stagnant or incorrect beliefs along with outdated spiritual and mental practices that may inhibit their ability to manifest a more meaningful existence. Overall, a spiritual life coach helps one identify and/or clarify their life’s purpose by attuning with and gaining wisdom from one’s Higher Self"Soul" or "Spirit" of an individual (or the “inner You”, the I AM, Christ Consciousness) toward growing deeper in their relationship not only with the Creator (the Divine, Source, God) but also with their spiritual team (ancestors). Most importantly, a spiritual life coach can help you trust yourself and your intuition (“inner wisdom”) for a divinely-aligned life of peace, love, wholeness, and purpose.

What’s Required Prior to, During, and After a Session?
The coaching process begins with the purchase of a small fee (for new clients only). From there you’ll receive a link and/or PDF via email to complete our client data/pre-coaching assessment form. Once completed in its entirety, we will reach out to you to schedule your initial consultation call. This initial “meet and greet” call is to get virtually acquainted and further discuss your goals, along with the use of spiritual tools to determine if we are a good fit to work together or not. If – after this initial meeting, we agree to work together, then we begin setting up meeting days and times, number of meetings, etc.
Coaching clients should anticipate homework assignments between scheduled coaching sessions and thus should arrive at all sessions fully prepared to review their findings. Missed meetings along with missed assignments may count as a paid coaching session; therefore, it’s imperative that those signing up for this service are truly ready and committed to the work ahead, which is why The Divinely Preserved Healer charges an initial consultation, unlike other life coaches.
