As we wrap up our series on Living Through Your Highest Self, we want to offer you a structured process to help you and your clients live more aligned and empowered. Having a deeper understanding of your needs, best self care practices, and core values, can allow you to tap into your highest self.
However, getting to this point of understanding usually involves a self-discovery process. If the one doesn't know where to start in this process, it can be helpful to follow a structured framework. An organized and thought-provoking approach can help it feel less daunting and complex.
The READi Model is comprised of five phases – Reflect, Explore, Accept, Define and inspect. It is a wonderful framework to use with clients who are ready to set goals that are in alignment with their highest self. Each phase paired with powerful coaching questions can help clients process information and generate insights about how they want to show up in this world.
What's at the Core?
By: Saimantee Bhattacharya
"Every individual experiences a phase in life when there is a lot of unrest in the mind as a result of an ongoing internal inquiry questioning our choices in life, meaning of success and happiness, life goals and purpose. This “noise” is perfectly normal and it only indicates that it’s time to get to the core to find some real answers!
They say to love someone else, you first need to love yourself. So, it makes sense to get to know the person you spend the most time with – yourself! We think we know ourselves well, but then there are situations when our own behavior surprises us and we fail to comprehend why we did what we did. Sometimes everything seems to be going as planned, but there is a constant feeling of “something missing,” making a question pop into our head: am I chasing the right set of goals?
There are numerous such examples when a person feels something is lacking, but can’t quite pin-point what’s not right or what’s missing. This can happen when people are pursuing societal goals (goals aligned to social expectations), or when they are following a life path that has worked very well for someone else they know. Hence, they get confused when they do not feel happy achieving such goals.
Any of the above scenarios can be a trigger to embark upon the journey of self-discovery. It can be a challenging and complex process to start with and that’s where a coach can help."
