The Beginning of the Middle!

Last week I started a life coach certification training that I believe will provide me with the tools I need to personally transform my body, mind, and soul passion journey, to create the entrepreneurial business of my dreams, AND to teach others how to do the same.
I’m incredibly excited!!
The last year and a half I’ve studied and worked hard on my self in the Self-Coaching Scholars program, with The Life Coach School, and it has completely changed my life. In the Fall of 2016, I knew that in order to become the life coach, the wife and mother, the physically fit and emotionally strong Emily that was born to be, I had to open up my brain, examine my thoughts and decide exactly what I want to think and believe instead, then follow through with the massive action required. I learned so many tools that helped me coach myself and I cannot imagine my life had I not learned them. Life before was grey and getting darker. Now, there is so much light and love that even in the darker moments of life, I’m able to shift back within minutes, hours or the day and not turn that into a month-long binge on food, alcohol, shopping, gossip, and ultimately depression.
I get to create this life whether I’m conscious of it or not so why not be 100% conscious and create something amazing? What am I believing about this? What have I been taught that I actually don’t need to believe anymore? Question everything. Everything!
I’m practicing new thoughts that will produce emotions that fuel the actions that will produce the results I’ve been dreaming of my whole life. 
One of those thoughts is: “For the next six months I am learning the best tools for integrative life coaching, and entrepreneurship, that will make me the best coach I can be.”
Stay tuned for updates on what I’m learning as I plan to share everything I can along the way, on this blog and social media. Whether that’s just personal revelations or actual tools you and other people can use to better all of our lives.
I am SO excited to be sharing this new journey with you. Please comment or send me a private message if you have any questions or need help. I will be practice coaching for free over the next three months.
Love and light, my friends!!
Q&A:
Did you quit your new job??
Nope! I still work in People Operations at JASK and LOVE IT. I get to do this coach training in the evenings, outside of work, which is super awesome.
What is “integrative life coaching”?
As a Licensed Massage Therapist, Reiki practitioner, and believer in the connection between mind, body, and soul, it only makes sense that I would not only coach people with their minds but also connect what’s coming up in their body and energy to what they’re thinking and feeling.
I will use all of my knowledge and tools I’ve learned over the past decade of studying self-help, massage therapy, energy work, the meta-physical, and the Spirit, to help every person who is attracted to this work.
The practical applications of this work will vary from client to client including, massage therapy and reiki sessions, workshops, retreats, phone and video calls, worksheets, journal pages, diet, exercise, videos, and maybe even a podcast. 😉
What does coaching look like?
A life coach holds up a “mirror” to show you your own thoughts and guides you to find the answers to the problems on your own. As a teacher, I can teach tools and concepts, but coaching is personal to the client. I hold non-judgmental space for clients which is where we can dig up all the thoughts that have created the results we don’t want so that we can choose whether we want to keep thinking them or not. It’s always a choice.
What coach training did you enroll in?
Integrative Life Coach Training with Kim Guillory, a Certified Life Coach through the Life Coach School. Kim is awesome and is ON POINT with what she is doing and I totally believe in her training. It’s exactly what I’ve been hoping for this year.
What is Self-Coaching Scholars?
An amazing program for folks who are ready and willing to invest time, money, and energy on themselves!
