Staying Centered – Three Questions to Promote Peace

For those of us who are highly sensitive or empathic, other people’s emotions and dramas can often feel overwhelming. The extra level of awareness that allows us to be compassionate and intuitive, also means we are more aware of the energy and emotions swirling around us. There are many tools to help you stay centered and not at the mercy of this sensitivity and I thought I’d share one created by my coaching partner, Ryan O’Toole, that I am finding very helpful.

One of the important steps to being a healthy, thriving empathic or highly sensitive person (or really for anyone trying to navigate the challenging times we live in) is to learn how to stay in one’s own shoes and not become overloaded by the emotions or experiences of others. When we are able to stay grounded and centered, we align with our higher self and are able to hear the wisdom of our heart. This is a time period when being able to listen to our inner truth radar is essential, as you can pick almost any topic and find conflicting “truths” being espoused.

Three Questions to Stay Centered

1. What is motivating your choice to get involved – love or fear? Love motives will bring a feeling of being uplifted, excited, or joyful. Fear motives will leave you feeling tense, anxious, pressured, or worried. If it isn’t love, then it is best to take a look at what is making you afraid and find a way to address the fear so you can then choose from love.

2. Will it nourish me to get involved? Just as they recommend when you are flying that if you need to use the oxygen masks, put yours on first before helping someone else, the same is true for keeping our own systems functioning optimally. If pursuing an interaction or activity is going to drain you, perhaps you should reconsider participating. When it is in alignment from a spiritual point of view for us to be involved, we will have the energy we need. If we are doing something out of guilt or obligation, it will drain us and that doesn’t help anyone.

3. Have you been invited? Those of us who are empathic naturally have a sense when someone is upset or struggling, but that doesn’t mean it is always best for us to get involved. We need to be invited to help before we act, as otherwise the person we are trying to help will become angry with us for not respecting their boundaries.

I have found taken the time to check in on these three questions really strengthens my ability to stay centered and empowered. I hope you find them helpful too!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New from Spirit Earth Coaching for 2019

Happy February!

We hope everyone is having a great start to 2019! In Ohio, we have been in the midst of the bitter cold spell that is gripping much of the nation. Of course, being Ohio, it is supposed to be in the fifties next week! A good place to learn about being adaptable!

We are getting a bit of a late start with new things for the year. We spent January getting things streamlined and setting new goals and now we are ready to share what is new with all of you! Below are brief descriptions and links to learn more.

New for 2019

New Client Referrals – We love word of mouth referrals! As a thank you for helping people connect with us, the person you refer can take 10% off their first spiritual coaching session and you can take 10% off your next session too!

Workshops – We offer a lot of different types of workshops (and will be adding more)! We will continue to offer workshops monthly and now you can also have us do a workshop with your friends, colleagues or loved ones. Workshops can be held at our location or we can come to you. Plus, with a minimum of four paid participants, the organizer gets to come free!

Private Events – Spirit Earth Coach Nancy Nicholas offers Empowerment Circles for private events which provide a mini reading for each participant with the intention that all readings hold gifts for everyone listening. Circles can be done on a theme or with a more general focus. She is also available to do mini reading private sessions at your event too!

Coaching Packages – For those interested in ongoing coaching, we are now offering coaching packages which offer discounts from 10-30% off. There is also a mentoring package add-on option for those who want a more focused plan and additional email support throughout the 30 day period.

Retreats – This option offers half day, full day or overnight spiritual coaching retreats for an individual (or you can come with a friend). Winter retreats will be held at our winter home on ten beautiful acres in Northeast Ohio.

February Events

2/2 OR 2/6 Abundance Workshop (Hinckley, OH) – This workshop had to be rescheduled because of the crazy cold and because of scheduling conflicts we have decided to offer it twice. See below for details!

What to Expect – We will be teaching a card game called Hand and Foot and using it to teach concepts on how to manifest the abundance you are seeking. Through this fun game, you will discover just how powerful vibration is to what you experience and learn techniques to work with gratitude and your Angels to have magical results! Intuitive insight into how you can apply what you learn to your own abundance goals will also be shared. We will also be providing a light lunch (Saturday) or light dinner (Wednesday) of soup, homemade bread and a sweet treat!

When – Saturday 11 AM – 2 PM OR Wednesday 6 PM – 9 PM

Crossroads Coaching LLC NOW Spirit Earth Coaching LLC

A Message from Nancy 

I am so happy to share that I have made the name change to Spirit Earth Coaching LLC! As those of you who have been with me for awhile know, Spirit Earth was the name of my second business that I had started in Colorado. For several reasons, we ended up deciding to dissolve it back in January. I was very sad to let go of the name and the concept of Spirit Earth, as it is such a good representation of the type of work I do now. Recently, I learned that I could just change my business name, so I have decided to do that! For those of you who didn’t realize my business name was Crossroads Coaching (you probably think it is Empowering LIghtworkers), that is one of the reasons it feels safe to make this shift! I started Crossroads Coaching when I was at a “Crossroads” in my life – moving from a career as an elementary teacher into doing my life’s calling as a life coach. Now, I am on a quest to live a spiritual life that is centered around living close to the Earth – thus Spirit Earth Coaching LLC is a much better fit!

What is New 

Most of the offerings are not changing, but here are some things that are new with the name change:

  • Empowerment Readings NOW Spiritual Life Coaching Sessions: I  will still be offering the same type of sessions I’ve been doing in the past under the header of Empowerment Readings. I’ve changed the name because I feel it is a better representation of the full extent of what those sessions are about, since they combine intuitive guidance with teaching and coaching. Also, this will allow other types of spiritual coaching sessions to be offered as we go along.

 

  • Domain Name: My website address will still be accessible from EmpoweringLightworkers.com but the primary name will be changing to SpiritEarthCoaching.com

 

  • Earth Living Skils: Spirit Earth Coach, Ryan O’Toole, and I will be offering more Earth Living Skills in the future. These skills combine spiritual tools with nature-focused activities. More on that soon!

 

  • Website Blog: We are going to share more about our travels on the website blog then we have been doing this last year. If you want to follow, there is a place to sign up on the website. See below to go to the website home page. The option fo follow the blog (you can do this via email) is on the right side.

 

  • Workshops/Classes On the Road: We are going to be adding a page with types of workshops and classes we offer that will be available in Ohio or in other areas by request. More on that soon!

 

  • Facebook Page: My Facebook page has been changed to Spirit Earth Coaching LLC from Nancy Nicholas- Intuitive Life Coach. You can follow me here: Facebook

Wisdom Circle – Walking the Guided Path with Author Ray Reitze – 6/19

I just wanted to share about a wonderful opportunity to connect with Author and Spiritual Teacher Ray Reitze who will be in Ohio on 6/19. Ryan and I did a two-day retreat with him at the beginning of the month that was inspirational! We had read his book   – And We Shall Cast Rainbows Upon the Land – last fall and have been quoting it ever since! It was such a gift to spend time with this wise and gentle soul and I’m so happy to get to share the opportunity with those who weren’t able to come for the weekend event. We will be there for the evening and hope you can come too! Below are the details:

Walking the Guided Path with Author/Spiritual Teacher Ray Reitze

When: Tuesday June 19, 2018 from 7 – 10 PM

Where: Seven Hills, OH

What to Expect: We will be gathering around a fire to listen to the gentle wisdom and humorous teachings shared by Elder and Spiritual Teacher Ray Reitze for this three-hour Wisdom Circle. Participants will learn about Ray’s exceptional life, what he has learned along the way, and about the gifts of living a simple, connected life in harmony with Nature. Ray will also be sharing simple meditation techniques to help you get more deeply connected to your self and to the natural and spiritual world around you.

How the Evening Will Be Structured

The event will begin with a brief introduction and then Ray will be sharing about his life and experiences. Participants will also have ample opportunities to ask questions. We will take a break midway through for refreshments and a chance to connect more informally with those who gather for the event. The second hour will provide opportunities to practice different meditation techniques, to ask questions, and explore more deeply what Ray has shared.

A Little Background About Ray

Ray has lived a rich life with many adventures along the way! He was mentored by a Micmac Native American elder as a child, went through the Vietnam War, owns and runs a Maine Canoe Guide business, and mentors and teaches those seeking to live in a simple, connected life in harmony with one’s spirit and nature. He lives in a beautiful yurt-like log home off grid in the Maine woods and has much to offer the world on how to step away from life’s dramas and get back into a no-nonsense way of living that is deeply connected and joyful.

Love Exchange: $20 

How To Register

May Fundraiser – Great prizes and Free Guided Meditation

I have been blessed to work with some amazing people over the years and this year is no exception. I have an amazing group of women that I would love to gift with a $100 scholarship to attend a spiritual retreat with me in Asheville, NC. I have already given them 50% off on the retreat cost, but would like to provide some additional support, as they have all gone through some significant family and financial challenges. Below is a little bit of their stories and ways you can help me reach this goal, as well as information about gifts for you too!

Prizes and Free Gift For Participants

When you make a love offering to the Crossroads Coaching Fund for this fundraiser, you will have your name entered in this month’s raffles to win some wonderful prizes (your name will be entered for every $10 love offering – so for example, if you make a $100 love offering, your name will be entered 10 times). Everyone who participates will also receive a free gift of a MP3 recorded guided meditation I created to set up your energy system for the day ahead to help you have a GREAT DAY! Read on to learn more…

Scholarship Candidates 

I wanted to share a little bit about the people who will benefit from this Fundraiser. Thank you for helping me help them!

Candidate One – This kind soul is the mother of a beautiful little boy. He was born with Down syndrome and other physical challenges that will require special care for his lifetime. His mother has been the principal caregiver for the seven years of his life and she is the most loving, wonderful mother! Along with caring for her son (including having to purée all his food, attempt to communicate with him as he is non-verbal, and meet his other needs), she has also had a chronic illness herself. She has had many other challenges along the way, but instead of giving up, she continues to push herself to learn and grow into her highest potential. She is a very gifted intuitive and has great personal insight. I am very happy to be able to coach her and help her move into her empowerment!

Candidate Two – Have you ever met anyone who always makes everyone feel at home? This candidate is like that. She is so genuinely kind and friendly that she is the heart of whatever group she is in. She always is willing to help and encourage and often takes care of everyone instead of taking care of herself. She has raised a beautiful daughter with Asperger’s Syndrome on her own and also cared for her mother, both of which still live with her. This last year has brought a lot of financial challenges with unexpected expenses because of medical challenges, cars breaking down, and debt from college. Despite all that is on her plate, she continues to focus on how she can grow spiritually, help others, and learn how to unconditionally love and support herself. I am incredibly grateful our paths have crossed and feel very honored to be able to help her continue growing her immense spiritual and personal gifts. 

Candidate Three – I have great love and respect for this candidate! She has gone through many trials in her life, including going through breast cancer a year ago. She has spent her career learning about how to help others through studying nursing, nutrition, acupuncture, and social work. Going through cancer and chemotherapy deepened her commitment to a path of spiritual growth, deep inner reflection, and a desire to be of service to others. She has great self-awareness and I feel very lucky to have been a part of her journey! I would love to help her continue growing and healing through a scholarship for this retreat.

How You Can Participate

Coaching Fund Love Offering – Visit the Coaching Fund page at the link below and your name will be entered into the drawing for every $10 love offering. For example, if you made a $100 love offering, you would be entered 10 times into the raffle. We will be pulling names for prizes on 5/11 (New Moon Circle), 5/21 (Women’s Wisdom Book Club) and 5/30 (Spiritual Retreat) and you will be notified if you win. Your name will stay in the drawing for the entire month, so the earlier you make a love offering, the more chances you will have to win! The goal is to provide $100 Scholarships to each of the candidates. Any additional funds raised will be used to meet the goals of the Coaching Fund to provide affordable, ongoing coaching support for those who need it through scholarships, discounted events, and discounted coaching sessions.
