Close your eyes in a moment and take yourself to the edge of a cliff where you can see the calm ocean touching the horizon, just as the last rays of light from the setting sun land as gold over the water. The space around you is infinite. The wind is gently blowing away the last clouds giving place to a bluish-purple night sky full of stars. Be in this place for a moment in your mind: which sensations come to you? Are they connected to any emotions? What are your thoughts? Be in this place for a while and feel yourself there. What is it like?
All those sensations are mirrored by our physical body – the most refined communication channel we have in this life. It’s the tool your inner self (soul) uses to speak to you every day, in every situation and in each moment of your life. The challenge is to listen and be aware of it with so much noise around us.
Most people are led by circumstances, they live their lives in “automatic mode”, never being present in the moment, going with the flow of the masses, lacking awareness of themselves and of what they do. Life mostly goes on and on in this state for most people until something of greater meaning happens to make them stop. That’s when we start to awake for our next level of consciousness. The will for change starts to grow once people recognise that the life they were living until now, can’t be all there is to live.
In transpersonal coaching we learn how to listen to our inner self using our body. Once the connection is established, we can identify fast which situations we allow or not in our lives. We shift from going with the masses to flowing with what fits our purpose.
Through self awareness we become one with our bodies and we find out it is more than just a communication tool. We discover that our body has an infinite memory… yes, infinite! It works as a hard drive capable of saving all experiences we go through in this life. All thoughts and emotions we have every day end up as a print in our physical body. Meaning that if we want to resolve an emotional or mental issue, we need first to unblock the trapped energy in this prints, bringing the physical energy back to its original flow.
The transpersonal coaching focuses on simple but very effective techniques to remove those physical blockages enabling a complete release of emotional or mental issues by combining the physical exercises with meditation techniques.
This body memory we have exists as well for a greater purpose: it is the channel that enables us to connect to the “Whole”, to everything. Once we access the memory saved in our body, cells, atoms, particles and much smaller parts of matter, we access the memory of all forms that those cells, atoms and particles took since the beginning of the universe. My first spiritual teacher already told me early: “each cell, each atom we care holds an ancient memory. You are this ancient memory.” Once we learn to access this memory we will have reached a state of flowing wisdom within us – “the God in every man and woman”.
It is this state that we call “Transpersonal Consciousness”. Once in it, you will have understanding, acceptance and empathy to all situations in life. You will live in the here and now and all that is to be will flow to you, because the natural flow of life is your energy flow.
So now, start to listen to your body and its reaction towards people, things and situations during the day. It will serve you as a guide. It will help you identify what blocks your life and what brings you into flow. Your body is the gate to understand your inner self and your purpose. It’s energy only flows when the circumstances are meant for you.
Transpersonal coaching is about learning to listen to yourself and to lose all “ties” with the world and people around us. It is to escape the “automatic mode” and gaining control of your thoughts, actions and emotions. It’s about being always at your center and knowing that you are connected to the universe and that from there you can create anything you want. Just as the stars rising in the night sky.
