For this week’s blog, I asked my friend Nyali Muir, a successful Transformative Coach, specialising in the Feminine Power teachings, to introduce you to Feminine Power coaching! I love the focus on women, and the supportive and practical approach.
Over to you, Nyali.
Let’s imagine for a moment that you’ve been ascribed the task of introducing someone – who’s never tasted it before – to the delectable world of Ice-cream!
Some things have to be experienced to be appreciated, such as the sensuous delights of eating chocolate and the endless fascination of a new born baby.
Well that was how I felt when first considering how I’d introduce Feminine Power to an audience who may never have heard of this delectable smorgasbord of Coaching-Life possibilities. Consider the infinite variations of ice-cream the world over, where would you commence your task?
Well, the juicy originators of Feminine Power Coaching are 2 extraordinary women, Claire Zammit (Transformative Educator) and Katherine Woodward-Thomas (Psychotherapist & best-selling author of “Calling In ‘The One’”). Created by women, for women….and men!
It is largely based on Transformative, or ‘Transformation of Identity’ Coaching – which identifies and addresses the underlying limiting beliefs-thoughts to our undesired patterns and inner obstacles. Patterns which we all experience, standing between where we are and the greater potentials we sense for our lives, appearing as our ‘glass ceilings’.
Based on Ontology – the Science of Being – Feminine Power Coaching focuses more on how we are being relative to One’s Self, Life and Others, than it does on what we are doing. It gives credence to more of the typically feminine ways of being such as ‘Creativity’, ‘Intuition’, ‘Care’, Compassion’ and ‘Flow’ in partnership with the more masculine recognised ways of being such as ‘Structure’, ‘Direction’ and ‘Logic’, to bring Life, everywhere, back into balance.
The relationship between Coach and Client is an ‘Evolutionary Partnership’, which from the onset is based upon 3 premises. To show their application these have been emboldened and included below in the article.
We have a ‘Daily Power Practise’ which is one of establishing a deep relationship; one of safety, love and maturity, between the conscious part of one’s self and the un-conscious parts of one’s self. We bring to awareness that which has been hidden, yet which has been navigating and co-creating the experiences of our lives.
We see ourselves as source of our own experiences, co-creating with Life, being 100% responsible for evolving our part in things.
To illustrate a Feminine Power Coaching context within business, the following are true-life cases. Names and identities have been changed.
Wendy works as a Global Project Manager for a household recognised I.T. company. Whilst very competent in her role, she felt restricted by her fear of public speaking and came for coaching to shift any inner obstacles that were holding her back. We had 1 session and immediately identified an old ‘I’m not clever’ belief – clearly untrue otherwise Wendy would never have held the position she did. Yet this old programme had her stutter in meetings, not share her views with colleagues and generally speak quietly. Within the session we took Wendy through a process that ultimately shifted her inner position from one of victimization (& misinterpretation from childhood) to one of Maturity, Truth and Power. We also identified new skills and capacities for her to commit to and develop. Immediately following this session Wendy was presented a first time invitation – which she rose to….to organise, orchestrate and deliver a conference for clients to attend from around the world, which she would never have done before. Since it is it that our beliefs, words and actions are the tools with which we co-create our experiences, with Wendy’s True, Supportive beliefs in place and new behaviours being practised, opportunities and circumstances arose. I’ll leave it to your imagination how well it went!
Jade is a performing artist and model with no small amount of talent, skill and beauty. Only, Jade wasn’t getting the work she desired to come in – no matter how hard she tried. Working by phone, after a short while we identified an unconscious ‘I’m not safe being visible’ beneath all her endeavours. In brief, we sought to re-establish what was really true about her old beliefs, using a specific Feminine Power Process, anchoring her into the Powerful, Wise Part within herself. From here Jade was able to keep herself safe. Safety no longer being a matter of ‘chance’ or ‘fate’, but rather her lived experience created through conscious and wise choices.
Almost immediately she gained a modelling contract that saw her appear nationwide on billboards and the internet, she was invited to New York to sing and she also completed recording her first C.D., with ease and joy. Because Jade had brought about an inner shift, her outer world changed. Not long after this, she called in her soul-mate, became pregnant, they are blissfully happy and soon to be married.
Diana is the successful partner of a global company in a male dominated industry. Surprisingly, she’d been timid, personally insecure, generally incapable of saying what she really thought and continually wore ‘masks’. She was something of a walkover and was clearly disrespected by key staff members. She wanted and needed to take her power back. Our coaching partnership gave Diana the safe container and learning environment she needed in which to create her breakthroughs. One of her biggest successes was being able to do something most folk dread – to give various staff members notice to leave. Diana is now sourcing staff who are far better suited to the healthy and friendly office she’s committed to establishing. Private conversations and clearly communicated boundaries have resulted in greater respect towards her. Diana set clear intentions and committed to them, thus setting the stage for new opportunities and possibilities to arise, enabling fulfilment on her original intentions.
Feminine Power ‘Transformation of Identity’ Coaching is as delicious as a new ice-cream creation, with none of the calories and with all of the yummy benefits!
