In my last blog I talked about a friend who thought that I was a relationship counsellor, which I’m not, or am I?
I’m sure that I’m not a counsellor, more of a facilitator or teacher I guess. I call myself a coach but even that doesn’t always sit right with me. I decided a while ago that it doesn’t matter what I call myself so I’ll leave it there, for now at least!
Now the word relationship intrigued me more, so I decided to look it up to see what it means according to google.
The first meaning that I came across jumped out at me, so that’s the one I’ll go with.
Here it is: the way in which two or more people or things are connected, or the state of being connected.
I love this. The state of being connected!
So in actual fact, because of the fact that we’re all made of the same thing (stardust!) we’re all connected and therefore we’re already in a relationship with each other, everybody and every thing?
So, in practical terms, I work with people who are wanting to fix/end/start/change/understand their relationships with their partner/children/parents/boss/neighbour/teacher/friend and of course themselves.
And my job is to lovingly connect with them (have a relationship,) in such a way that they are in the state of being connected, and will, from that place, have new ideas and insights about the situation that they are in or indeed anything else that comes to and from Mind.
Whilst in that state of being connected I can talk about the inside out understanding of life and they will hear that as a truth because we are together, connected and in a relationship!
I love my job …………………………
