What happens during Enlightenment Coaching? Which thing (or things) will help you the most to cross the threshold into Householder Enlightenment?
In the short time that I been doing Enlightenment Coaching, I have learned these five things.
Five things, give or take a few.
These little things inspire me. Maybe they will inspire you, too.
Enlightenment Coaching Thing 1: Is Evolution about the Inner You or the Outer You?
RACHEL has asked a great version of this question at our pair of guest posts by new additions to our Enlightenment Life List, KYLIE and ELAINE. I’m going to alternate answers with each of her fine quotes. Then I’ll blurt out something (formerly) rather private: The five most important things I have learned so far as an Enlightenment Coach.
Big disclaimer first. Rose Rosetree does not know everything. What, you knew that already? 😉 I’m just one energy healer who helps with emotional progress and spiritual growth. I never set out to found the system of Rosetree Energy Spirituality but co-created it piece by piece. As for the piece of my work around being an Enlightenment Coach, that is relatively new. In short, I’m still learning. Here I will simply share what I have learned so far. What is Enlightenment Coaching, anyway?
“I dont get how one persons Enlightenment is an inside job, and they are Enlightened despite life not being how they want it to be…”
Enlightenment Coaching Thing #2. Enlightenment always is an inside job
For everyone, moving into Enlightenment is an inside job. The lights go on from within.
Enlightenment is a state of consciousness. It does not mean winning at the local Bingo game, nor any other outward honor or award. Those are outside, right? Also known as “Objective reality.”
Arranging objective reality according to one’s personal expectations is not an appropriate human job. Perhaps it is sometimes the mission of a dictator or megalomaniac, but they’re not Enlightened. 😉
Even for them, fat chance!
So a person may have the state of consciousness of Enlightenment without having external life be perfect in every respect.
Enlightenment Coaching Thing #3. Does using your potential in life bring Enlightenment?
“… and for another person [Enlightenment] comes about due to using their ‘full potential in life.’
The short answer to this part of RACHEL’s question is simple: This is a common, but incorrect, assumption.
Doing anything, including using your full potential, does not bring Enlightenment. Cart before horse logic!
Before Enlightenment — we’re not using our full potential. After Enlightenment — we are.
Sometimes doing and saying things (expressing one’s potential in life) can be an important part of a person’s path. Other times, or for other people, that is irrelevant.
Tricky business, indeed, this Enlightenment Coaching!
Soon as I read this part of RACHEL’s question, I thought, “The only way to answer this properly is to share FIVE THINGS ABOUT ENLIGHTENMENT COACHING.” You know, what is coming up later in today’s post.
“Is inner or outer? Or both?”
Fascinating, deep question here! And again, I hope that the FIVE THINGS ABOUT ENLIGHTENMENT COACHING can shed some light.
Enlightenment Coaching Thing #4. Living with Gusto Hastens Enlightenment
“So many New Agers emphasise the inner life and spurn taking practical, outward action to improve life (thats what I have observed, at any rate). But I have been inspired by things you have said, Rose, or pieces of research you have conducted with me, that shows the amazing effect that different choices can make on ones aura. Real, practical choices actions, things to do, not just thinking, or feeling happy.”
