How To Thrive In Business Through Spiritual Intelligence

Thriving in business starts with your personal definition of thriving. For some, it is purely monetary gain, financial wealth and being perceived as a success in the world. For others, it includes definitions such as  expressing the truth of who they are through their work and all that they pursue; balancing time spent “doing” their business projects and time spent “being” in their business, allowing their creative minds to generate new ideas on the way forward; enjoying positive relationships with all of their clients, suppliers and competitors, and having a genuine desire to serve them all; feeling a sense of energy, vitality, happiness and fulfilment  from their work and running all aspects of their business being guided by the Highest and Best in them, their True Self.

How Can You Be The Light in the World?

One of the key teachings of the spiritual text A Course in Miracles is “you are the light of the world.” This means that each and every one of us, without exception, is this light that The Course speaks of that we can bring into the world. We are that light on our good days and on our bad days. We are that light when things are going wrong and when things are going well. We are this light regardless of what is going on in our world. This light within us never fades nor diminishes, however bad we may have been. Read More

Traditional Coaching versus Spiritual Intelligence Coaching

There are a plethora of coaches these days. Everything from style coaches, success coaches, business coaches and creativity coaches. All of these coaches have in common the desire to create change for you in some way. Through a variety of techniques, they hope to move you from “A” to “B” so that at “B,” you are where you want to be. There is much value in this approach, and yet the route to “B” most often involves making things happen and taking massive action, based on what looks logical and realistic in your given situation.

Embracing our Shadows

Something that we have to accept about ourselves is that we all have our shadow sides. These are the parts of us that appear, often when we are under pressure, and lead us to act in ways that we then feel guilty about. They are the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that we have that we find totally unpalatable about ourselves. These are for example, the parts of us that shout at our partners, our children and at other drivers on the road that appear to “cut us up”, when we have been working all day with our clients and peers being as kind as anything. In short our shadows are the very things that we do not want other people to know about us because we have been taught from a very young age that it is not acceptable to behave in this way.

Moving from Independence to In-Dependence

We have been brought up to believe that being independent is a good thing. We think that being independent is  cool and courageous, that being independent we do not need anyone, we are  a free spirit. People who have an unhealthy attachment to being independent hold the belief that they can do everything on their own. Relying on other people is not something they would choose to do. They find it easier to rely purely on themselves and not get into situations which could mean having to depend on others. Read More

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro

If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves. Thomas Edison

This is one of my favourite quotes and I have found this quote to be so true for me this year. Since deciding to climb Mount Kilimanjaro early in the year, I have found this to be a year of expanding my ideas of what I thought I was capable of doing. This is the value of having a “big” goal or intention that is in alignment with our energy – it forces us to expand and break through our own self imposed limitations, gently and easily. Read More
