One of our main jobs as coaches is helping others have harmonious and productive relationships with important people in their lives. However, how much focus have you placed on the most important relationship of all — the one with your “Inner Coach?” It’s also called by many names; intuition, inner guidance, wisdom within, and the voice of your soul.

Whatever you call it, learning to listen to its insight requires two things: a practice that facilitates quieting your mind, such as meditation, prayer, or communing with nature; and an understanding or discovery of how you receive answers. Intuition is one of the most common ways of receiving this wisdom. It’s your “Inner Coach.”

When you are struggling with something in your life, you want to fix it. You will probably do anything to get out of the stress of the experience. But what if this conflict is really asking you to sit with the pain and listen to its message? What’s really going on? What is the experience trying to teach you? If you can get to the heart of it, you’ll prevent it from coming back in another form. So before you take action, be still and listen within. Your Inner Coach would like some time to be heard.
