The Practice of Empathy: Holistically Healing Others in a Compassionate Way

Posted by Jade Marvin on 7/15/21 4:00 PM

To talk about the power of empathy, one must first understand the difference between sympathy and empathy. According to Psychology Today, ‘Sympathy’ is a feeling of care and concern for someone, often someone close, accompanied by a wish to see that person better off or happier. However, sympathy, unlike empathy, does not involve a shared perspective or shared emotions. The power of empathy is the ability to understand another person’s thoughts and feelings, stepping into their shoes, and seeing things from their perspective.

Helping Women Embody Their Truth: Camlyn Stoeberl, Tarot Life Coach

Posted by Jade Marvin on 7/1/21 4:00 PM

Camlyn Stoeberl is a mother, Tarot Reader, Soul Guide, Life Coach, Seer, and a SWIHA great graduate. Camlyn helps support women to dive deeper into themselves and lift the spiritual veil so they can ignite parts of themselves that need healing and embody their truth.

I decided on a whim to sign up for the program. I felt confident that my spirit was guiding my journey and I wasn’t wrong. I would say the defining moment for me was when I realized that I had overcome a major hurdle in my own financial limiting beliefs that had been keeping me poor for my whole life. I began to notice that the less I worried about money the more it was always coming into my life. I knew I was on the right path when I was able to rewrite my stories in much more empowering ways that served me.”

Trust Your Intuition: Your Gut Knows What’s Up

Posted by Jade Marvin on 5/27/21 4:00 PM

When we look for guidance, we often look outside of ourselves for answers or to feel complete. We may feel unworthy or unprepared for answering our own questions, when in reality, the answer was within ourselves all along. Being in tune with oneself is a hard skill to master, yet a necessary one to be able to gain clarity through life’s hardships. When we draw awareness inwards and practice the art of mindfulness, we can then begin to feel supported and at peace. Like any relationship, the one we have with ourselves takes time to nourish and thrive.

Amanda Shaffie Uses Coaching to Help Others with their Goals, Purpose, Relationships and Mindset

Posted by Jade Marvin on 5/20/21 4:00 PM

We all get asked the big question “What do you want to be when you grow up?” For many, this question stays unanswered for a long time. For others, they seem to have it all figured out. The answer to this question comes at different points in life for people, and that’s okay. Your path does not have to follow a certain timeline. For Amanda Shaffie, Life Coaching was always built in for her. She asserts, “I have always enjoyed the investment in others and helping to clear a path for those to meet new opportunities and challenges that further their quality of living”.

Amanda Shaffie already had an established practice, Amanda Shaffie Life Coaching, and felt the need to continue her education, which ultimately led her to SWIHA. Amanda states, “I was curious if my methods could be expanded. With many people feeling more at ease with an accredited formal type of training, I decided to go for it. And I am glad I did”.
