What will a Spiritual Direction session do for me?
1. You receive an accepting environment to share bizarre mystical encounters.
Have you had an experience of the sacred that you are afraid to share? Do you wonder if your friends and/or family would think you are crazy if they knew what happened? These moments of grace gnaw at us when they are not shared. Stifled by shame and plagued by fear of ridicule they sit within us pleading to be expressed. In a Spiritual Direction session you have the freedom to share about the overwhelming dream you had, the spirit you saw, or the chance encounter that opened your spirit.
2. You have the opportunity to release what weighs on your soul in a safe way.
Do you have a secret you can’t tell? Did you treat someone poorly and regret saying what you did? Just like secrets of beautiful mystical experiences trouble us, so do the secrets concerning troubling aspects of our lives. Spiritual Direction gives you the chance to unburden your soul and come clean about mistakes from the past. Spiritual Direction sessions are held under the strictest of confidence. Not only do you have the company of a compassionate listener, you also receive guidance on how to break away from these painful burdens.
3. You get a place to ask those deep, spiritual questions and discover your own answers.
Without knowing it, you already have a value system in place. You have certain beliefs about God and the way life works. Are these beliefs serving you or are they in the way of your destiny? In Spiritual Direction, you have the chance to seek out your beliefs and put a name to them. By then comparing and contrasting them with other belief systems you are able to see what you believe objectively. This may be one of the greatest gifts of Spiritual Direction because it empowers you to choose, consciously, what to believe. This can shift your entire world axis and open your entire life up.
4. You have a chance to learn more about your true, authentic self – your soul.
How often do you answer the questions, “where is my soul?” and “how would I describe my soul?” When you make snap decisions about your own deep nature you are robbed of the magic of life. Delving into questions such as this during a Spiritual Direction session allows you to know the value of who you really are, grounding you in the sacredness of this life you’ve been given. You are more than a collection of attitudes, likes and dislikes, personality traits and behaviors. Connect in with your true essence – find your soul.
What does Stacey Couch do as a Spiritual Director?
A Message From Stacey…
As a Spiritual Director, I bring years worth of study and draw from a myriad of traditions to bring you the wisdom you need for where you are on the path. A devout mystic, I am not affiliated with any particular faith. My work is non-denominational. I include teachings from Buddhism, Shamanism, Hinduism, Christianity, astrology, mythology and more.
We all have great intuitive abilities and my job as your Spiritual Director is to help you understand and trust your intuition more fully. There are also many messages and omens that come to you from daily life, dreams and visions. Symbolic sight is needed to help you understand what the Divine is saying to you and how to act on that guidance. I help you learn how to read the signs in your life to make decisions, find support, and come into touch with the sacred in the mundane.
With a combination of inquiry and symbolic sight I endeavor to help you discover your inner truth. This work leads to your soul. I am not interested in being your oracle or telling you how your experience is. My job is to pose possible answers or theories and help you learn to do the same. Spiritual direction hones your ability to decipher your truth and, ultimately, The Truth.
I bring to my work as a Spiritual Director my own spiritual practice of deep devotion. I regularly engage in the disciplines of reflection, journalling, contemplation, meditation and prayer. Any given day, you may find me reading pivotal spiritual texts such as ‘The Dhammapada’, ‘The Upanishads’, ‘Interior Castle’ by St. Teresa of Avila, ‘The Cloud of Unknowing’, ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ by St. John of the Cross, the Bible or the ‘Tao te Ching’. For me it is in the teachings of the great mystics that I find answers and questions that lead to a more soulful life.
I so look forward to being your guide along the way and share my thanks in advance for trusting me with your process.
“I am not [here] to change anybody’s beliefs, doctrines, dogmas,
or moralities. I am hoping to change the mind by which you
understand these things. That will change whatever still
needs to be changed, but now Someone Else can do the changing –
and we can simply get back to being friends and humans.”
– Richard Rohr
