The mission of Being Human Life is to support, coach and guide individuals who are experiencing what is commonly referred to as a spiritual awakening. The mission of the Entelechy Institute is to train coaches, therapists, spiritual guides and ministers to support individuals who have experienced realities beyond our 3D reality, and who need assistance to integrate these experiences into their lives.
What are Spiritually Transformative Experiences?
As we shift into the New Era of what is called the Aquarian age, amidst vast societal and cultural change, breakdown of old paradigms and belief systems, millions of people are experiencing spiritually transformative “awakening” experiences. You may have a different name for the experience, such as: out of body experiences, mystical experiences, or near death experiences. Maybe you’ve had an experience of talking with angels to God, to Jesus, or to people you know who have passed away. Maybe you’ve seen apparitions, been in a profound altered state of consciousness. Maybe you’ve had visions, energy experiences sometimes called Kundalini awakenings, or something else that was outside normal 3D reality. Maybe, you have shifted into a place of doldrums about life and the world you see around you. This disillusionment is leading you into a more reflective space within that has you asking “WHO AM I?, WHY AM I HERE? WHAT IS REAL? WHAT IS MY PURPOSE FOR BEING ALIVE? The experience of synchronicities, of wonder, of awe, of beauty, of oneness and deeply existential questions all can be spiritually transformative experiences
These experiences can happen at anytime to anyone: in the dentist’s chair, during sleep, walking in nature, during an illness, pre-death, near-death, making love, reading a book, and just about any moment, mostly when least expected.
Most spiritually transformative “awakening” experiences are naturally occurring and spontaneous. Individuals who practice meditation can induce these states as well. I have experienced several of these spontaneous experiences while backpacking in the natural world. As children, some of us experienced the presence of an invisible friend that we could see but other people couldn’t. Children often have non-ordinary experiences, and have learned that it isn’t always safe to talk about such things.
There is a continuum of experiences from low impact on our psychies, our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual realities, to high impact, which may require a whole new orientation to the way we perceive the world. The integration and reorganization of one’s reality may take just a small readjustment. For others, it may take a lifetime to assimilate, integrate and to find compassionate presence with themselves and others, as reality continually reveals its vast potential for expression.
Spiritual Awakening Experiences (SAE) are Mostly Positive and Transformative with Support
Often, people who have SAE’s do not experience comfort or support from family and friends. They feel isolated from their partners, their community and even their children. Getting labeled and ostracized leads to the dismantling of relationships. SAE’s are normal phenomena within our reality as human beings. Because most of us do not reveal our experiences for fear of being invalidated and rejected, we keep them to ourselves, sometimes denying that they ever happened in the first place.
Transformational Life Coaches are uniquely trained and skilled to provide the deep listening, intuitive ability to interpret and understand what the client has experienced. The role of the Transformational Coach is to listen and hear them without judgment and without fear of retribution, rejection, and without shame and guilt. Life, Leadership and transactional coaches and practitioners need to educate themselves on the fundamental challenges that an awakening experience produces. Beyond that, the coach is privileged and blessed with the honor of witnessing and guiding their client through a most intimate, personal and life-giving process of BECOMING at one and integrated with themselves. Professional Coaches, therapists and practitioners must have the sensitivity, capacity, heart-mind-skillset to effectively work with their clients and have to assess their own ability to work with the Amazing Souls who are experiencing the vastly profound Awakening experiences that are opening a doorway to deeply personal growth and transformation.
