AWAKENING YOUR CLIENT'S HEART MAGNET
Do you ever hear from your clients, “I don’t know what I want!” or “I don’t remember what gives me joy?” So often when our clients are in the midst of a major transition, they feel numb. They have lost their sense of self, and in this state it is impossible for them to find their way forward.
While working with clients going through life and career transitions, Carol McClelland recognized that most people don't have a clear way to discern whether they are drawn to something or repelled by aspects of their life. Without this essential internal knowing, clients feel lost, unable to make decisions that aligned with their goals, values, and needs. They run their life based on a series of shoulds that make life tolerable rather than a sequence of wants and desires that create a thriving life they love.
The Heart Magnet, this internal knowing that tells a client they want more of something or less of something, is like a muscle. If we haven't tapped into this inner knowing, if we were forced by recent life events or events in our childhood to just do what we have to do to get by, then this muscle has atrophied. When weakened it's hard to trust our knowing because we have no way to know what's right for us.
If you are working with clients who are rebuilding their life after a major transition or choosing to create a new aspect of their life, then this internal knowing is the first brick in building a thriving life! Without this inner knowing, it's impossible to make all the decisions and navigate all the choices involved in creating a live we love.
UNLOCKING TRANSITION ANNIVERSARIES FOR GROWTH AND HEALING
Ever had a client who was doing well and all of a sudden, for no apparent reason, they slip into a deep funk? They have no idea what happened, they aren't sure what to "fix" in order to feel better. They are understandably frustrated and anxious.
It's possible they are experiencing a reaction to an emotional anniversary of an event in the past. The anniversaries of significant or traumatic transitions, both personal and collective, frequently trigger unresolved feelings.
Understanding the dynamics underlying the anniversaries of a wide variety of traumatic life events can give you additional insights about how to support your clients in acknowledging and commemorating these anniversaries in a way that's healing and allows them to become whole again. Learn ways to educate your clients about these anniversary reactions and acquire tools that will help your clients identify clusters of anniversaries that may unknowingly impact them each year. Through this process, sometimes powerful insights are revealed about how events are inter-related. Clients will also learn how to prepare proactively for these meaningful times.
