Interview for Yahoo
1 - You are a renowned life and business coach in India. Tell us about how the epiphany of entering the coaching industry happened?
Life coaching is about helping people sail through the difficult areas of their life and find their own strengths to ultimately achieve their life’s goals. That is what I do for those who approach me. Though, it was not always like that.
About 14 years ago, I was struggling with my own share of challenges across my career, relationships, health and more. In pursuit of their solutions, I enrolled into Landmark Education, where I joined few courses to seek my answers. Thus, began my journey to fulfil numerous quests, which eventually led me to the coaching industry.
As I transcended from one difficulty in my life to another, I took help of the next course to sail through it. Once I mastered my heart and mind and applied the learnings to myself, my life started improving drastically, Thus, the need to master other aspects became stronger. So, I went to various other forums that taught me about my body, emotions, spirit, karma, origin and so on. I coupled these learnings with my own scientific logics and used them in fusion to combat my challenges. Doing this unlocked the door to everything that I ever wanted in my life.
“If this could work for me, it could work for anyone else”, I thought. So, I started applying them on my troubled friends and family members & could successfully help them overcome their problems. Slowly, the desire to help others extended and my passion turned into a profession. Simultaneously, the process of getting certified from various reputed organizations, domestic and international, took off, which established me as a certified life and business coach.
As I was searching for answers to my life’s problems, I faced immense difficulty in finding a single forum that could address all aspects of my being. “There had to be an institute that combines all learnings of the mind, body, heart and soul and impart it through a common platform” I resolved. The coaching program that I run today is a bye-product of that resolution.
2 - Tell us about your area of expertise in detail. What all it does entail?
My work involves helping people with different life problems and handholding them till the end. It is about empowering them to realize their own potential, take their energies to a different level and helping them achieve whatever they want in their life; whether is professional success, happiness, peace, contentment, better relationships, improved health or anything else.
My learnings and tools allow them to integrate their mind, body, soul and emotion and bring it in alignment. This in effect enables them to take control of their life and live their dreams. This is done through one-on-one sessions, corporate trainings, workshops and seminars.
I work with people from different backgrounds, school of thought, professions and age. The problems also differ, ranging from very personal issues to those that are strictly professional. The most common issues encircle stress, anxiety, depression, parenting, fear, anger, communication, childhood healing, emotion management, relationship management, job management, leadership and so on. So, there is no ‘one recipe serves all’ kind of package. The solutions I provide are entirely customized and befitting to the person’s individual circumstances and desirable goals.
I achieve the above through my learnings as a certified Life Coach & Business Coach, Arhatic Yogi, Energy Healer. The scientific bend of mind, which I often blend and apply with my spiritual learnings, are borrowed from my Engineering degree in Electronics & Communication. Together, these certifications and degree, have provided me with the required ability to address all facets of my client’s problems. It is so fulfilling to see them improve one day at a time and walk out of my office as a completely transformed person, for better of course.
3 - Your clients must have had life-changing experiences after taking your coaching sessions. Would you like to share with us any of those?
Though there have been many such experiences which can be termed as life-changing, there are two which I would like to mention here-
Recently, I was coaching a girl suffering from gluten allergy. So, we had gone to a three days retreat where I had given various tools to help her improve her life and ensure holistic development. The magic happened after we returned. Her allergy to gluten & gluten products disappeared. At first, she was apprehensive. But, within a few days she realized that it was gone for good. Today, she can eat food items without any gluten-free tags attached to them. Finally, her life is back to normal.
A 29-year girl had walked into my office, brimming with anxiety. She suffered anxiety attacks and was on medication. I worked with her at all levels and could wean her from medications within just 2 session. Today, she is free from anxiety & lives a happy life.
4 - What results can one expect after taking your coaching sessions.
“Set your dream on fire, empower it with focus and true determination, and see it come to life.”
My coaching sessions fill you up with the power to create your own reality, just as you would like it to be. You can give your life, be it any aspect of it, a complete 360-degree makeover.
With me, you will learn how to make your mind, body, and emotions work for you and in the desired direction. You will learn to love and accept yourself and others just as they are; to bury the past behind and live in the moment; to stay positive and be in awareness of everything that surrounds you, including yourself.
Coaching is all about helping you realize your own strengths and enabling you to capitalize on them. That is what you can expect.
5 - Being a 'woman leader of impact', how do you deal with everyday stress and cope up with your busy workdays.
How you start your day decides the course of it till the end. I start it on a very special note. That is my mantra to keep the everyday stress at bay.
My morning begins with much gratitude to the Universe for the tiniest things that I am bestowed with. This is followed by meditation and kriyas. A lengthy barefoot walk on the grass keeps me rooted and is coupled with a good workout. Continuous learning is a part of my daily routine. So, I pick up one new topic and learn about it every morning. Creating a task list and making a mental note of my priorities for the day ensures that I am sorted and puts the chances of any unplanned anxiety to rest.
Together, my morning activities activates me and helps me to gain the desired momentum. I automatically get into a high energy vibration, something that cannot be broken throughout the day. It is just like riding a merry-go-round. Imagine it circling at an insane speed! What would happen if someone tries to hop on? The answer is obvious.
Similarly, once my mornings help me get into a high energy vibration, it gets impossible for low-vibrating emotions such as fear, anxiety, stress, anger, etc. to hop on. All I do is to keep a periodic check on myself every hour to ensure that I am on the right track. The more I am aligned to my purpose through these high vibrating energies, the easier it gets to pull of the day and life without any stress.
“Everything in the world is made up of energy and carries a certain frequency and vibration. Attune to these & discover the secrets of the universe.”
6 - What is your ultimate quote?
Stop taking life too seriously. The world was fine without you and will move on amazingly once you are gone. Don’t attach too much significance to life & enjoy the journey
Give in and surrender to the Universe. Open up to the possibilities. Let things happen as they are meant to be. Let go of your worries about the outcome & see the Universe spill out its magic.
Acceptance is the best gift that you can give yourself. Accept yourself just as the way you are. With all your perfections & imperfections.
We are not small beings living in this Universe but the Universe in motion. We are filled up with infinite power, power to do anything and overcome every challenge. Don't consider yourself small. Rise up, know your potential, conquer.”
7 - In the now very bustling coaching industry, how do you plan to level up with the growing standards?
The only way that anyone, including me, can level up with the growing standards is by staying true and committed to the service. That is my plan for success. Here is what differentiates me-
In the coaching industry, people usually acquire their learnings and then apply it directly to their clients. But, with me, all the tools and learnings are tried and tested. Remember my story? I have applied all of them to myself first and only once they started working for me, I started applying it on others. So, I know which ones really work and which ones don’t. I am extremely certain about their impact on my clients.
I keep the entire affair very simple. My tools and techniques are inspired by real life. This makes it hands-on and very easy to apply and adhere to for my clients, thus fetching better and quicker results.
My energy holds the space for my clients. The high energy levels create the right atmosphere for my client and helps them to vibrate at a higher frequency more easily.
Seeing people make it to their life’s goals is my truest reward. That is what I coach for. So, I ensure that I handhold them and stay with them till the end. My ultimate motive transcends my professional limitations and extends to ensuring their success and well-being.
