I could elaborate on wholeness in the areas of religious, spiritual, mental and emotional balance. But the truth is, regardless of which aspect of wholeness is chosen, wholeness itself speaks to balance. Simply put, a proportionate balance of mind, body and spirit is gained when we acknowledge the components of our world as they are, both good and bad, real and imagined, emotional and mental, as well as physical and nonphysical.
We need to understand that there is a synergistic quality to the sum of the parts that create who we are as individuals, and that that wholeness is greater than the sum of all our parts. We do not deny the various aspects of self but embrace and learn from them. It is a personal evolution of accepting who we are without involving our ego.
Therefore, wholeness is not some otherworldly exhibit of oneness. To the contrary, to establish wholeness, the individual must separate itself from internal and external influences. The hope is that wholeness is created when we figure out how we are connected to all of these influences and accept them, both good and bad. Regardless of the circumstances, one should gain a greater sense of well being.
Benefits of trying to achieve wholeness and living a balanced life are: a boosted immune system, an increase in positive thoughts, a reduction of anxiety, increased focus and concentration and an increase of gray matter in the brain. So you see, seeking wholeness and achieving balance are both positive things and speaking in real world terms, set you on a path in the direction for achieving more.
I see a life coach basically as a wholeness mentor who helps you to develop strategies to connect individual purposes to personal fulfillment of needs in order to create happiness. Having challenges figuring out where to start on your journey? Call a life coach.
