Dear Glorious Soul Sisters and Brothers!!!
It is with joy that I am reading all the e-mails about our e-group. I know passion is ignited when we share about our international e-group because we care. And the fact that you care means more to me than I can tell you. It makes me feel so very honored to be a part of this remarkable group of compassionate, remarkable beings.
The Soul Coaching yahoo e-group can be an extraordinary force for good in the world. For through our collective energy we can, at times, come together to project energy and light and love into our precious planet.
We also can be an incredible support system for each other. As we support each other and celebrate the successes of each other, our Soul Coaching practices (and our lives) will be empowered.
You Are Needed:
I know that through our intent, love, and the sharing of wisdom in our e-group our lives will improve and expand, collectively and individually. As I mentioned in your Soul Coaching® classes, I believe that our world is potentially in for a rough ride for the next decade. One of the reasons that I am training Soul Coaches is that I know that your services will be needed in the years ahead.
But in a deeper sense, it is not just your coaching skills that will be needed, but it is your strength, clarity, wisdom and capacity to love fully and deeply even when it’s hard . . . and even amidst judgment and uncertainly, that sets you, as a Soul Coach, apart from others.
Your spirit and energy are needed now . . . and will be needed more than ever in the years ahead.
The exciting thing about these uncertain times is that there is the opportunity, like never before, to finally fulfill your potential. There is finally the opportunity to step forward into the energy of a leader, healer and teacher…. just by being who you are.
For me the Soul Coaching® training is more than a seminar for creating awesome coaches, it is preparation of an energy for the future.
Denise Linn is the Founder of Soul Coaching and this is a letter and intro she wrote for her beginning classes… It has been updated to reflect our current information, but the thoughts and energy as just as important today as in 2003.
It’s Not an Accident that you are a Soul Coaching® Practitioner!!
I know that it is not an accident that you were drawn to the Soul Coaching® training. I believe that you were chosen a very long time ago–long before this life–to help formulate and assist this process. Whether you are active or not on the e-group, I believe that each Soul Coach is a part of an energy matrix that will go through a strengthening and even a vibrational shift in the years ahead.
During this time, old limitations and negative pattern and barriers will potentially come up so they can begin to drop away. As this happens, your capacity for compassion, your self-esteem and your connection to the Creator will increase. Potentially, it may not always be easy but this time ahead is a path of grace and a path of spirit.
Strengthening the Matrix:
On the inner planes I believe that we together are strengthening our matrix of energy through our individual pathways in life. For me, the e-group is an important part of this strengthening. As we are willing to share our truth and at the same time support others on their path we are all empowered.
I know there are times when the Soul Coaching® e-group might not seem easy. There might seem to be more e-mails than you don’t resonate with, or some of the subjects might not seem helpful to you. Or there might seem to be too much personal support, or not enough etc. etc., however, beneath the surface of the e-mails, please remember that there is a divine energy of kindness and love that is building and strengthening us all.

New Year, New Format
One of the additions to the new year will be a topic of the week. In this way we can learn from each other as we share what’s working (and what may not be working.) For example, one week we may be talking about collage workshops and the collage process. Another week we might be talking about clutter clearing in regard to our clients. Another week we might be talking about bell clearing. These discussions will be archived so that we can refer to them in the future. I’m excited about this new format that starts at the beginning of the year. (Many thanks to the gracious Soul Coach Trainers that helped work on the list for the year.)
I’ve appreciated all the great ideas suggested about this e-group. Here are my ideas as well.
Identification…Who are You? and Where do You Live?
if you are willing, I’d love to see your full name, class number and area of the world, as well as your e-mail address (either at the beginning or end of each e-mail).
I know that it takes a second or so longer to paste this information in, but I love it when someone does this. For me personally, I feel more connected to the sender when I can place them in the world. (And we ARE all over the world! Just in the last seminar, we had people from such a wide spread number of countries including: Hong Kong, Singapore, France, Norway, England, The
Congo, Thailand, Australia and the United States. Yipeee!!!)
I know that I haven’t been identifying myself, but I will start doing this as well. For example for me I’ll put:
Class number: 1-56
I personally love the fact that we support each other in our various up-turns and downturns in life. (And I sure have felt supported during some trying times in my life though e-groups.) However, I can understand that for some people, it gets tedious when there is a call for healing for, the neighbor of a friend’s friend, etc., for example.
How about if we utilize the healing aspect of the e-group if a situation personally impacts you deeply, such as for a family member, or your very close friend, then we can send energy to you as well as the individual.
Also, to reduce the number of e-mails on the International Soul Coaching e-group, if we have a personal message for someone, perhaps we could e-mail them personally. (But I have also been extremely guilty of being too quick to hit the ‘reply button’ and sending to the whole group when I mean to reply to an individual, so I do know how easily that can happen.)
As a suggestion, if you have a personal one-liner for someone, as much as possible, if that could be sent to them personally, it would be great. However, an exception to this might be on the smaller individual class e-groups. I foresee that some of the individual Soul Coaching e-groups will continue for many years into the future.
As well as personal support, the larger International e-group is a fabulous avenue for getting feedback about building your business, supporting your clients, creating classes for the 28 days, and for general perspective on being a Soul Coach, as well as numerous other things.
I love the idea of topics being presented and we will begin this formally in 2017. However, if there is a topic of interest to you or something you want to share with the group, we want to hear! Also I love the idea of sharing information, for example, music that we find helpful for Soul Journeys or books that have helped us become better in this field.
I know, I know, I have been a great offender, but I do know that it is valuable to state in the subject box of your e-mail what the actual subject of your e-mail is. This way, as we develop archives on various subjects, we can easily look up the information that we need.
For example, if someone wants to know what essential oils are best in a Soul Coaching treatment room the subject might read:
‘What Essential Oils are Best for SC?” And the replies might be “Best Essential Oils for Soul Journeys”
I personally don’t think we should send attachments to the e-group. (Of course if someone asks you to, you can send an attachment to that person personally.)
As someone who receives up to 200 or more e-mails a day, I know what it can feel like when there a zillion e-mails and, as it has been suggested before, there should be a way on your computer to digest or have all your Soul Coaching e-mails put into a folder, so it only looks like one e-mail.
(Also, thank god for the delete button.)
We actually don’t have a moderator for the Soul Coaching e-group. However, Carol Chiang very generously and kindly has taken time from her very busy schedule to sign everyone up. (Thank you Carol) If you want to contact someone about a problem with your e-group membership, you can contact email@example.com
Okay. . . I put this in to see if you made it this far. OKAY you made it to the end!! You deserve a special ice cream soda in heaven, or else a free trip to Tahiti or something great, but until the universe decides what, I send you my love…always and forever!!
