I’ve been a member of the All Life Community since October 2017, when I also became part of the All Life staff. My name is Derek Coalter, and this is a small part of my story…
This time last year I found myself in the deserts of Arizona and California on a journey that changed my life forever. Influenced by Nature and the sacred places of our Native American ancestors, I found a new purpose. I discovered the meaning of my existence – to help and to heal others.
This profound experience hurled me on a spiritual path where I quickly realized the connection between health and wellness and the soul. I engulfed myself in researching healing modalities that address much more than our physical bodies, and soon found myself palpably drawn to Reiki.
I completed my Reiki Master Certification before the end of the year and now find immense joy in helping my clients relax, de-stress, and connect to their truest selves. This starts with clearing any blockages in the chakras, but almost always develops into addressing specific emotional, physical, or spiritual issues. Reiki is amazing in that this is all done by placing hands gently on or over your clothed body, and it only takes about thirty minutes to an hour.
In addition to Reiki, I soon began incorporating some Native American and shamanic techniques in my practice. This quickly evolved into what I like to call “Decision Coaching” or “Soul Coaching” – a service in which I assist with helping one connect to their highest, truest self so that they can be more confident and decisive regarding a specific aspect of their lives. This usually takes more time and energy than a normal Reiki session, but I find it invaluable in achieving my life’s mission of guiding others on their own version of the purposeful path I discovered for myself a year ago.
