I became a life coach, not because I feel that I know a lot about life, but because life has challenged me to my core. Being a highly sensitive empathy who moved from state to state growing up, introduced me to the wonderful world of inner work. At a pretty young age I was depressed, anxious, bulimic, suicidal and 75 pounds heavier. I was miserable, but it was this darkness that led me to finding my inner light.
After years of mild improvements in therapy, I found life coaching and my life began to rapidly expand. I found the inner work that gave me the taste of freedom, and made my soul sing. I can remember bargaining with God and saying "GOD, if you can get me through this darkness - I will DEDICATE MY LIFE to helping others get through theirs."
Once I began to see the light, I decided that I wanted to teach people to do this inner work, so they too could see their life shine.
I went back to school, got my Master's in Transpersonal Psychology to compliment my holistic life coaching certification. Ten years later, and thousands of hours helping others climb through their inner gunk to find the light, I stand here today to share a sacred truth I found along the way.
I do not claim to have it all figured out, but I do claim that you can have clarity in what is going on within. I do not claim that life is perfect, nor do I teach that. But I do believe that you can learn from and make the best of what comes your way. I do not claim to always feel great and be a positive sparkly unicorn, but I know that - even amidst a panic attack - you can train the mind to know that you are still ok and can triumphantly make it through that moment. (Been there.)
To me, life is about being your true and authentic self. Having the courage and freedom to share that with the world! Getting into alignment with your soul purpose then becomes a symptom of this work. Without needing the approval from others, you can just begin to be who you are and enjoy the unfolding in that!
If you are in a place in your life where you feel ready to do the inner work. Hit me up and let's start this transformation journey together! Sophie@AwakenWPB.com
