Whether you are a life coach or you are coaching yourself, energy has become a hot topic. No doubt, after all, a life coach who has proper training will tell you that coaching someone always comes down to helping them with their energy, directly or indirectly.
There is much talk these days about energy: everything is energy first, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) your way into better energy, energy and flow (The Golden Flow™, for which I am Co-Founder) and so on. We seem to have come to the understanding that energy is the root of our creations and our point of attraction, so most life coaches employ an energetic method in their practice.
However, understanding what we are getting in flow or freeing ourselves from seems to go unquestioned. Sure, we have a general understanding that we have blocks, but what are these blocks? Do they block our energy? How do they block our attraction? Shouldn’t we be asking these questions to get to the root of the problem, especially as a life coach?
Hey Coach, What Is An Energetic Block?
When people speak of blocks they are really referring to stagnant energy that is impeding a flow. Just like an old, dusty and dark attic, energy that is stagnant enjoys little change or flow. Similar to old photo albums, old clothes or anything else we keep in our attic, our limiting beliefs collect dust in our energy while taking up space.
As a life coach, when it comes to blocks I like bringing people’s awareness to the saying “pushing buttons”, as in ‘she pushed my buttons’. It is an interesting cliche, to say the least, because while it means that someone has upset or angered us it is really telling us something more. The words themselves are telling us that there is something in us that is being poked. Our ‘hot buttons’ are actually those parts that are sensitive or easily upset. These are our energetic blocks.
As a life coach we should be aware of what an energetic block is. Whether we call it a belief, a button or anything else, it is truly a charged energy. A charged energy is like a red, irritated wound on our skin. It throbs, making it hard to avoid, and often causes us pain or discomfort.
Coaching The Coach
This is a red flag for us life coaches. People will experience this charge as a throbbing, a tell-tell sign that something is off or wrong. We can all, no doubt, recall times when we were so angry that we were ‘seeing red’ and felt that pulsing. Our blood pressure often rises and our perception actually shifts, causing the ‘red’ vision.
As a life coach this is the number one thing we need to know, and is foundational knowledge to a Maven Method™ Life Coach. We need to understand that an emotional charge is a block to someone’s energy and it will impede their being who they truly are. Walking through a crowded attic can be difficult. It is dusty and dirty so no one really wants to spend time there. Additionally, it is hard to bring something new into the attic. This means that a charged energy takes up space and leaves little room for comfort or new things in our lives.
