Being coached by Coyote Jackson has opened my eyes, my mind and my heart to what real encouragement feels like. And it is a strong feeling indeed. I am starting my own business: an endeavor I've never done before. Foremost he is patient and understanding in listening to my words. He has helped me to clarify those words and goals when I am fumbling in unfamiliar terrain. There's a large sense of patience and empathy Coyote consistently has exhibited throughout the entire process, and it has created such a nurturing environment that I look forward to the next coaching, and the next and next. Coyote has consistently held a gentle, kind mirror up to me during even the small victories and shown me that it's important to cheer and revel in feeling good throughout the whole process. The path to building a business is fraught with challenges, and to overcome them and remember to celebrate has made the process incredibly rewarding thanks to his guidance.
Sometimes in life you feel like you are walking around in a maze. And no matter how many turns you make you just can't seem to find your way out. And you get frustrated, angry, and end up feeling defeated. Then you turn the corner and find this gentle man waiting for you. He smiles and welcomes you with a hug and asks if you need help. You begin walking with him, and just being in his presence makes you feel better. His warm smile and hearty laughter is infectious. He begins to ask you questions about what is in your heart and what you want. You get the sense that he is really listening, without judgment, fully present with you in that moment. He hears your negative self talk and reminds you that you are good and beautiful and that it is safe to ask the universe for whatever you want. And when you admit you don't know how to do that he guides you, and gives you tools for the times he can't be with you. And then he steps back and lets you walk around the maze alone. That man is Coyote And now as you walk around the maze you have a spring in your step. You still don't have all the answers to the maze but now you realize it is just a journey and there is so much to see and experience along the way. You notice the sun is shining, the birds are singing, and you hear other people in the maze too. And you are looking forward to finding and meeting them so you can be part of each other's journeys. Maybe there are storm clouds in the distance but you realize you are now prepared for them too....because Coyote gave you an umbrella. Working with Coyote has helped me become friends with the best person in the world...myself. He has taught me how to love her first and in doing so has made me less afraid to face my fears and live life with joy.
