In April we had the pleasure of listening to the wonderful Helen Leathers as one of our guest speakers.
Recently back from a two month sabbatical to Thailand and about to launch her new 12 week coaching program designed to help you shift / transform an area of your life causing you frustration, we were all ears as Helen guided us in her own inimitable style to listening to our inner voice, our guided intuition.
Our intuitive side is often a whisper and the more stressed out we are or become the less we hear it.
Helen took us all on a quick but powerful “time-out” for a few minutes to calm our minds, breathe deeply and relax into an all too brief moment of re connection to our truest self.
Feature Article :Setting Goals Intuitively With Helen Leathers
Helen is always able to speak (and write) from the heart and she en-capsuled her talk at the recent Telford & Wire Networking meeting like this, Helen writes:-
“Last year I had a massive revelation. I thought that I had set goals throughout my life and achieved them.
I was wrong.
Not entirely, but mostly I was wrong.
There were many goals that I had sat down and worked out, then broken down into little actions and worked towards. Some of those I had achieved, some of those I hadn’t, for a number of reasons. Why hadn’t I achieved them?
Maybe I had run out of steam
Maybe it had seemed too hard
Maybe I didn’t have enough motivation
Maybe I was not being held accountable by someone
Maybe I didn’t believe I could achieve
or Maybe, I just didn’t care enough.
I wouldn’t go as far as to say Goal setting doesn’t work, there are plenty of goals I have achieved.
But I would say that those I found easy, that magically just happened weren’t really goals as such.
They were more inspired intentions, and heart-felt visions for my future. One day I suddenly got a feeling that I should start a business, write a book, find a course…. etc. and you know what, I did, easily, and with help that just suddenly appeared. The coincidences that happen in my life are just brilliant.
What’s the difference?
Goals appear to me to be external and come from the head. We plan them in reaction to something else, to feeling less than, to not having enough.
Inspired Intentions are more of a feeling that guide us to the end result. They are internal and give us a feeling of heart-felt satisfaction and joy.
I think this is one of many ways women work differently to men.
I work better with inspired intentions than with hard and fast goals with deadlines.
How do you make this work in the real world?
Well I believe that by being in connection with my true self, and actively developing my intuition and my spiritual side, I can be truly on purpose and able to connect with my heart visions.
I feel what my future holds and that helps me to achieve the things that I can see or feel in my mind’s eye. Some people may say this is semantics, that I am talking about goal setting by a different name. But to me it feels different. To me it feels more congruent and purposeful.
This is one of the ways that I am different to other business and life coaches. I work intuitively and challenge the normal way of doing things. It’s more gentle, and it’s often more profound and easier, especially for women.
If you fancy more inspired guidance in your life, something that makes you think a little more, connect a little more (even if you don’t know what you are connecting with) and be a little more, you can download my free app here: http:www.helenleathers.com/app and start, or continue, on your journey, to achieve your heart visions, and the life you believe is waiting for you.
Helen’s New And Exclusive Coaching Program
I am going to be running group coaching sessions from the end of June for 3 months. I am doing a special introductory offer on the first one to make it accessible for as many as possible – having said that I can only take 10 people on this one. Anyway, if you know someone who would benefit from it, do let me / them know and put us in touch.
It’s a 12-week program designed to:
– help you create a major shift/transformation in an area of your life which is causing you frustration
– let go of the habits of Superwoman (if applicable) and create better results with less push and effort
– learn how to use a new kind of power to achieve, without burnout and sacrificing those things which are most important to you.
We will be working together in the first session to identify your intentions for the program and any barriers to your success. From that I will draw on dozens of tools and exercises to tailor the best program to help you get the results you want to see.
You will discover your Women’s PowerTypes and how to use them to create the changes you want to see.
I will hold you to account for taking action throughout the program.
By the end of the 12-weeks you can expect a profound shift in how you approach everything in life, and significant results in the area we focus on for the course.
