If we were to survey 100 people, my guess is that at least 90% of those folks would have a sense for what psychotherapists do when they're in session (although they won't always be right!). And, I'd estimate that at least 80% of those surveyed would understand what coaches have to offer (though this varies as well).
But, a muse, you say? What in the world is that?
In Greek and Roman mythology, there were nine goddesses, daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne, who presided over the arts and sciences and were known as The Muses. Over time, those who inspired creatives became known as muses.
In this day and age, the professional muse is utilized by anyone who is challenged by their process, whether creative production, performance, decision-making, relational, or even by the definition of who and what they are becoming. Muses are sensual beings who inspire others not by what they do, but how they are. Muses are energetically fluid, centered beings who need not ground, and unlock the pathways that exist both inside and outside of the client.
As a muse, I help people get unstuck.
I know full well that we're not supposed to use words like stuck when speaking of our pursuits. No one likes to think of themselves as stuck, especially brilliant, empowered leaders. But, wordsmith all you like: when we are not accessing all that we desire, when we are not living the life of our dreams, when we are not living up to our potential, when were are not sucking the marrow out of life, we're stuck somewhere.
It's starts with being willing to acknowledge that something's gotta give. The solution begins when we can recognize that we are stuck and may actually need to activate our resources to move beyond that obstacle.
Sometimes, the resource we employ is a therapist. A great clinician is a person who can analyze your patterns, dynamics, habits and history and enables you to both understand why you do what you do, but also to decide whether or not you want to continue to live life that way.
Sometimes our trusted resource is a coach. A valuable coach is one who can help you identify goals, design steps for reaching those goals, and require accountability for each step along the way, in order for you to achieve optimal results.
When these resources don't quite meet your needs, or when they are not successful in helping you get unstuck, you hire a muse.
As a muse, I allow my intuition to guide our movement through your cognitive, emotional, energetic and behavioral patterns. If you struggle to identify what stands in your way of achieving what you desire, I assist you to see what is otherwise cloudy for you. When we have identified the challenges, we can explore their roots. If we can uncover their origins, we can contract for new patterns, and new results. When we know from whence the obstacles came, we can redesign the pathway to all that you desire. And with the release of all those pesky blocks, energy will be restored that you may not have experienced in weeks, months or even years. With your full energetic complement, your capacity to create, produce, perform, and savor multiplies exponentially.
Are you ready for that?
