Working with the Three Principles and coaching my clients using these principles is a totally different conversation from when I first started training as a coach over a decade ago.
I remember there were ‘models’ to learn, such as GROW – Goal, Reality, Options, Willingness. There were SMART goals – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound. There were hierarchies such as ‘Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs’. Techniques such as NLP – Neurolinguistic Programming.
There was a mountain of stuff to read and digest, coaching practices to study and learn, seemingly endless amounts of information to absorb.
I love coaching and seeing my clients achieve so much, but I felt constricted by the numerous models, hierarchies, techniques which I was supposed to follow to ‘be a good coach’. So mostly I didn’t use them, except in the very beginning. I tend to listen to what my client is saying, and listen to what they are not saying, get an understanding of their world and begin from there, and the sessions are organic, the flow and are successful.
So then I had the opportunity of learning all about the Three Principles (Mind, Consciousness, Thought) with Jamie Smart on his Clarity programme. There are no models to learn, there are no acronyms for goal setting to stick to, there are no techniques. It sounds very simple doesn’t it?
And it is. Our realities are created from the inside out. Unlike goals which are set from the outside in. The Three Principles paradigm is subtractive, there is nothing to add to it, but there is loads of stuff to take away from it. For instance all those models, acronyms, techniques etc.
The moment you realise thought and feeling are inseperable, the 100% nature of the thought feeling connection, you insightfully see that you are living in the feeling of the principle of thought taking form in the moment, and you wake to to the fact that there is no world ‘out there’ wielding power over your feelings. Which means you can never be the victim of circumstance and your head clears, you start experiencing the pre-existing fact that you and your perceptual reality are one….that there is no separation between self and other, which leads to clarity, peace, love, connection, oneness, wholeness, security, joy, wisdom.
So this is feeling so right for me, much more so than NLP ever did. I am developing the grounding I need to feel comfortable in my own skin, my confidence has grown markedly as I share these principles which are having a profound effect on my clients and on myself. There is something incredibly powerful about knowing that I am able to share something that is truly transformational.
I would like to share this with as many people as possible. My vision is impacting the lives of one million people so they too can have transformational insights into their own lives.
If you are ready to experience a genuine transformation, I am here to serve you.
So, if this resonates with you, and you would like to have a conversation about how coaching with me will work, get in touch today and we can arrange to have a chat to begin finding out where you think you are in your life and how I can serve you.
As Sydney Banks says, “ If you want to replace a glass of stale wine with fresh wine, first you must pour out the old wine. It is the same with clearing our minds of unwanted, stale thoughts.”
I really look forward to hearing from you soon.
