“I would define Life Coaching as seeing an individual with unique qualities and abilities, assisting the human in seeing themselves in the same way,” says Hali Benson, SWIHA graduate and founder of Blossom Services, “This then allows them to live according to their highest Self and find the truth they need to be freed to live authentically. As a life coach, I give them tools and accountability to speak and do as they would like to speak and do.”
Before becoming a Life Coach, Hali was serving others in different ways: as a nanny, dog sitter, and helping to run errands for the elderly. “I want to be there for others - it's a part of my DNA,” she explains, “so naturally, Life Coaching has been the best thing that has happened to me.
Her business, Blossom Services, is rooted deeply in her love of service to others: “I see my clients in the perfect body aligned with who God says we are - perfect by nature. When I come to the sessions with this heart posture, it allows me to individualize my programs based on the blueprint of that one person, instead of a ‘one size fits all’.”
Hali’s desire for her business as it grows is to help others heal from trauma and addiction through a right relationship with food and prana. She foresees herself working with women who are pregnant or looking to become pregnant - educating them about food throughout their pregnancy as well as foods for the first year of their baby’s life.
“One of my favorite tools for a client is giving them a blessed journal to write down the foods they are eating,” Hali tells us, “That way we can talk about why they may have felt sluggish after eating a box of macaroni and cheese. It's more accountability and gives them a deeper understanding of their body’s reaction to different foods.”
Life Coaching has truly allowed Hali to live a life of fulfillment: “I love being a life coach because it has given me the freedom to work hours that align with my son’s schedule so I can stay at home with him. I love documenting my clients’ journeys with them and seeing the transformations that they have. I feel this most aligns with a verse in the Bible that says, ‘Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help.’”
