How to Become a Spiritual Life Coach
Updated: Aug 29
Have you heard the call to become a spiritual life coach? It is this little inner nudge that begins to tickle you. Little by little it grows and you just know you are being called to help others. Then, people begin to show up - in the line in front of you, at the doctors office, or your kid's friend's birthday party; and they spill their heart out to you.
Deep inside you know you can help them, you talk to them, begin to feel that sense of purpose and then bam, out of nowhere, you are hit with this insecurity.
"Am I really qualified to help them?"
And that is where getting Certified in Spiritual Life Coaching comes in.
How is Spiritual Life Coaching Different?
First, let's talk about how Spiritual Life Coaching is different from just your typical Life Coaching. As Spiritual Coaches, we use a hybrid approach of healing and creation. We first address your blocks, help you remove them, call in new energy, get you in touch with your soul alignment and then teach them how to design the life you truly want to live.
Most Life Coaches are great at helping you move forward, but if you still have these big daddy root wounds in your subconscious they will come straight up into that new creation, making you feel like you have lost all your momentum and growth.
Spiritual Life Coaching gets ahead of this problem by starting with the blocks, and then showing you exactly how to deeply heal them so the subconscious is supportive of your new creations.
If you are feeling ready to step into becoming a Spiritual Life Coach, here are some great action steps for you to begin to turn this inner call into action!
Identify what kind of life problems you want to solve
Get a spiritual life coach certification.
Heal yourself to help heal others
Develop your pricing and offer
Set up the structure of your life coaching business.
Share your true self on social media, your website and in your relationship
BONUS STEP* Invest in continuing education
1. Identify The Life Problems You Want to Solve
Figure out what kind of work you want to do with others. Look around and see who is showing up. Explore around to find your niche. Here are some suggestions:
Is it helping people looking to change careers (Career Coach)?
How about people looking to get sober (Sobriety Coaching)?
What about people going through relationship problems (Relationship Coaching)?
Or maybe assist people who are opening up spiritually (Spiritual Coaching)?
Look around and see what gifts, skills and experience you already have in front of you. Next, begin to think about the solutions you know you have for them. This will help you identify your Niche and solve your future client's problems.
2.Enroll in a Spiritual Life Coach Certification
Getting certified will serve you in so many ways. It will strengthen your knowledge, give you coaching exposure, build your confidence, and teach you how to get people from A to B. Not all certifications are equal, so pay attention to how you feel when you are exploring them. Most will tell you that accredited courses are of the most value, but I encourage you to look a little bit deeper into the energy the certification is sharing. Just because they are accredited does not mean they will light up your soul. And to me, that is the most important feeling, that I am lit up in my work and in alignment. Once you find the one that feels like you have stuck gold; take the leap, make the commitment, and say YES, because it will take you to the next level.
3. Heal Yourself to Help Heal Others
You can heal anything, and I mean anything. YOU have the power to transform and heal any false belief that is blocking you. You can do this through finding your hidden wounds and remove them through all layers of your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual bodies. In my certification I will help you expand beyond where you have gone, show you how to open your heart so that you can then lead others confidently.
4. Develop Your Pricing + Offer
As you are going through your certification, it is advised that you begin to think about how to bring your gifts into the world. And we do this through presenting our offer. Figure out what you want to charge, whether it is per hour or for a result and build 3 packages that explain what your client can expect from working with you.
5. Set Up The Structure of Your Ideal Life Coaching Business Model
Begin to think about what kind of business you want to have. Do some research on what you legally need to do to set up your business in your state or county. There are many different ways to do this, but having an accountant help you in this process is priceless. In our Certification Program, on week 16, we have a comprehensive webinar with 3 expert Panelists who discuss the best ways to start up your business.
6. Share Yourself on Social Media, Your Website and in Your Relationships
This is where you get to be the real you and show up with all that you are. Think about how you want to serve your audience and then begin to share value with them. When it comes to social media, it does not matter how big or small your following is, you just have to start. Be willing to share your story and the biggest things that helped you grow and change. This authenticity will help you build your brand.
