In the early musings while the rest of my little world is still waking up, I have been thinking about the things in my life that I am passionate about and what I am good at that I might be able to share with others.
I’m not too keen about my photo being taken or appearing on videos so it seems that blogging is a great resource for me to reach out and connect with people!
Back up a bit. First of all, who am I? I’m Michele, a massage therapist and personal coach. I’m also a wife, mother, daughter, sister, auntie, and friend.
I’ve been offering bodywork for over a decade. A few years ago I became a RYT-200 yoga instructor, primarily so I could give my clients stretching suggestions to take home after a session or once in a while I’d do a pop-up type class in a fun location. I also found the breathwork and meditative aspect of yoga extremely beneficial.
In October 2017 I personally started working with a coach to help me transition my seasoned bodywork practice in a move across the state from Whidbey Island, Washington to Cannon Beach, Oregon.
In working with Laura Lavigne as a life coach, I became open to the possibility that I possess skillsets besides massage therapy that I can offer to others: I relate to others through my own varied life experiences, I have fine-tuned my intuition, I am curious and love to create, I am highly organized, and I see the big picture in most situations. And I crave deep and meaningful relationships based on trust.
I love to witness other people’s inner lights shine!
So I began training for a future career in personal coaching using Laura’s approach and in just a few weeks I will be one of the first to be certified in the Essence vs. Form (TM) coaching model!
As to this blogging project, my hope is to focus on what I call “the essentials” in life. Are you ready to learn and discover your own essential being? I also want to support others in "organizing and editing" their lives to find authenticity, clarity, inspiration, joy, and success.
In future posts, I’ll talk more about what essence is, lightening up, the Enneagram, and techniques that I have personally learned, developed, and used in my massage and yoga practice -- and snippets of what I teach in my coaching practice.
I’m aiming for weekly posts over the next 3 to 6 months as I get the hang of this. I hope you will subscribe and check back often to discover valuable life tools!
Since I’m brand new to blogging, I’m sure the format will morph over time. I’m always open to comments, social shares, and new ideas to write about. To contact me with questions, suggestions, or issues my work emails are Michele.SeaSpellMassage@gmail.comor Michele.EssentialBeingCoaching@gmail.com.
I recognize that there are a lot of blogs out there for you to choose from to read and I hope you find some value in what I have to offer.
