The way to the top of the Mountain

As a Spiritual Coach I try to help my clients to find peace, harmony, happiness and joy in their life. I inspire them to focus on their own emotions and "inner voice" to help them finding their own needs. This inner voice(s) are always guiding us on the right path to our dreams.

I will focus on the client’s personal transformation so that he or she will learn to see things from a new perspective, and will be able to deal with her or his feelings, needs and desires in a completely new way in order to find clarity, peace and harmony and of course ultimate happiness. From this place of inner peace, positive and ”real” changes will start manifesting.

Everyone has his own path to walk in this life. Something you want to explore, to discover and which give you an ultimate feeling of happiness. But the path is full of hindrances.

In Buddhism meditation, the Five Hindrances can be seen as the major forces in the mind that hinder our ability to see clearly or become concentrated. They are universal, we all experience them.

The five hindrances are:

1) sensual desire or greed

2) ill-will or aversion

3) sloth and torpor

4) restlessness & anxiety or worry

5) skeptical doubt.

My goal as Spiritual Coach is turning the hindrances into a Meditation Object for the client. It doesn’t matter if a hindrance is present or not, but it does matter if the client is aware of it. Any moment the hindrances are suspended, the client will be happy and feel calm. We need a friendly relationship with the hindrances, not an adversarial one. So how can we work with these hindrances

Together with the client we will investigate what exactly blocks them from happiness, in other words what are the possible Hindrances.

For that The RAIN Formula is used:

R: Recognize it.

A: Accept it.

I: Investigate it

, be curious. What is it like? • Physically (How does it feel in the body? Is it pleasant? Unpleasant? Does it change?) • Emotionally • Energetically (such as feelings of rushing, sinking or lifting) • Cognitively (What beliefs or stories do we tell ourselves?) • Motivationally (is there an urge to act or cling?)

N: Non-identification

, This is just a passing process that comes and goes, not who we are.
