The 21st Century’s definition of mental emotional health is already dramatically different from the 20th Century.
What is today’s criteria for mental emotional health?
People’s degree of stress, overwhelm, anxiety and depression has increased at a staggering speed. This has given birth to new addictions, unfamiliar challenges, and unsettling confusions.
The incredible wave of polarization sweeping the world requires coaches and other people helpers to learn how to work with, and if appropriate mitigate, this powerful and limiting perception.
All of this has triggered a quest for fresh ways to manage the avalanche of new problems. These include greater interest in religion, spirituality, meditation, mindfulness, conscious awakening, and personal transformation.
I am dedicated to helping you keep up with these emerging issues. So I strongly encourage exploring new tools and perspectives. Especially those tools that grant you the skill to deliver ‘Love In Action’.
To deliver ‘Love In Action’, desire is not enough.
SKILL is essential.
These are the 4 Pillars fundamental for helping others (and yourself) in our new and rapidly changing world.
Pillar One – Peace & Equanimity
Equanimity is defined as a state of calm that heralds an evenness of mind, composure, being even-tempered, and emotionally balanced. To develop this state, it seems that love, compassion, kindness, and understanding are essential.
Of course, people assign many different definitions to the word ‘love’. To Help You Help Others defines ‘love’ as respect and acceptance, in action, for your client’s world view. This means ‘Love In Action’ is demonstrable in both word and deed.
And for me, that translates into skill. Or, the ability to truly communicate
‘Love In Action’ via your own behavior – verbally and non-verbally.
With this kind of ‘love’ in hand, the actions of equanimity, compassion and kindness naturally flow.
Pillar Two – Discernment & Discrimination For Inner Harmony
• Perceptual Flexibility
• Multiple Models of Mental, Emotional Health & Well Being
• Techniques, Processes, & Tools For Rapid Change
• The Secret To Evoking Neurological Re-Coding & Brain Chemistry
• The Power of Linguistic Impact (Conversation) to Coaching & Behavioral Change
Whether obvious or obscured, structure is at the base of all things. Discrimination frees you to separate structure from the process it holds. Discernment frees you to perceive which structures of mental emotional health are fixed, and need to become flexible.
To honor our notion of ‘love’ as defined above requires a certain set of skills. These skills empower you to actually sketch the structure of your client’s personal reality so that you can work within it.
Because every human being
lives in their own unique and personal version of reality,
discernment and discrimination are critical skills.
Pillar Three – Spirit & Soul For Wholeness
• Conscious Living
There are as many ways to define these two notions as there are people in the world. However, regardless of how they’re defined, every person struggles with the existential questions of life.
Who am I? Why am I here? What is the meaning and purpose?
Coaching challenges the coach to stay present to the client’s views on Spirit and Soul, and not your own. This is a big challenge for most of us because spiritual beliefs are generally held as sacred truth.
So the pull to share your own convictions must be set aside. To do that, conscious exploration of the above listed skills are invaluable.
Pillar Four – Personal Growth & Transformation For Balance & Harmony
• The Spiritual Dimension of The Enneagram
• Energy Psychology & Energy Medicine
• Paradox Management/Mental Emotional Health via Balance in the Middle Way
• Perceptual & Behavioral Flexibility
• Dissolving Effects of Unconscious Childhood Cosmology
• Enhancing Effects of Consciously Created New Cosmology
• Awareness of Our Dual Identity As Both Human & Divine
Because you cannot actually separate personal growth & spiritual growth, transformation enters the scene. But what are we out to transform? The body? The mind? The emotions? Or is it the way we see things? Our perspective or viewpoint? All of these affect our mental, emotional health & well-being.
First, be cautious in offering transformation if you do not know how to deliver it.
Second, what is transformation for one may be nothing but a hiccup for another.
Third, discern the specific transformation your client is seeking.
