How A Spiritual Coach Finds Their Own Mentor
As a psychic medium who coaches other psychic mediums to develop, embrace and embody their gifts - proudly and successfully - my role is often somewhere between psychic and inspirational life coach.
On a personal level, and as a coach myself, I know the truth - that at times, it can be tiring being and being expected to be an inspiration all the time.
In every day life, there are peaks and valleys, waxes and wanes, and ups and downs -
And no one knows this truth more than your spiritual coach.
We have to know it, because otherwise, there would be no way we could help others from an authentic, knowing place.
So, yes, spiritual coaches sometimes do get burned out.
They are not absent from the life experience. Some may argue, they're actually more fully in it. But because of this, sometimes even the best and most inspirational coach of all, needs to find their own mentor. Their own support person.
Tips for the support person who needs support
how to find a mentor
#3 Look outside the box
Search outside your field for your support person. Getting and delivering that alternate perspective is what the spiritual coach needs and thrives upon the most. And for his or her own spiritual wellbeing, at no time is it more needed than now.
#2 Look for someone older than you
Always being the wisest person in the room is a common position for a spiritual coach - in fact, it's how they got to become a coach in the first place. This can be an exhausting hat to wear all the time. When seeking a mentor, you're going to need to switch hats and seek someone a little older than you, in years on the physical plane. Allow someone else to be the wisest person in the room for once. It'll feel good.
#1 Don't bring up the word coach or mentor
All people are made nervous by labels and living up to the expectations placed upon them by those labels - so when you find your coach, don't label it or them! Simply experience - take their class, join their support group, and be the willing student. You'll get everything you need from it, and perhaps more when you don't box it.
And finally, remember yourself and your own life.
People are busy.
When seeking a coach, try to do it by following the pathways they've already set forth for other people accessing their energy, time and space. Don't prod or push - just join their class and see how things evolve! Perhaps that class is all you need.
PS - There are a lot of spiritual coaches out there right now, so thankfully, now more than ever, you have plenty to choose from! Check out this article I wrote on the spiritual life coaching trend -
