Spiritual coaching

Exploring your values can be an important part of the process for getting unstuck or finding direction at the crossroads.

by Craig Dunkelberger — 

Have you ever felt as if you were lost, stuck in a rut or at a spiritual crossroads in your life and you did not know which way to go? This is a common phenomenon, and it can frequently manifest in the middle years of life. It is sometimes referred to as a mid-life crisis. However, what often masquerades as a mid-life crisis may in fact be a spiritual crisis.

Humans have an innate desire for a spiritual connection of some kind, and often those needs are crowded out in today’s fast-paced world, which is crammed with infinite distractions. The causes of a spiritual crisis can be many, such as the death of a loved one, health issues, relationship issues, empty nest syndrome, lack of purpose and the list goes on.

Exploring your values can be an important part of the process for getting unstuck or finding direction at the crossroads. Often the coaching process of examining values produces some important understandings and epiphanies. Sometimes what someone thinks are their most important values may not hold the same importance upon closer inspection.

Values may be handed down through the family or be common to a specific society. For some, those values may still fit them perfectly, while others may find themselves in conflict but do not understand the source of the conflict. Life coaching can be a valuable resource in identifying your direction in life, including your spiritual direction or in helping to deepen and expand your current direction.
