Lyschel listened to me. She asked me questions in where I was able to gain insight into what areas I was feeling stuck. She provided a space where I was able to process and not feel judged. When talking to her in the beginning we set goals and I thought sarcastically “sure this is going to work and help me feel unstuck.” Then within a few weeks I saw changes within me from working on these goals that I didn’t think would really work. It took awhile but I started to feel less unstuck. I think one of the biggest surprises was when we initially set up the goals. Lyschel listened to me and heard something and was able to help me identify a goal I needed to work on without even seeing it. It ended up being a huge stepping stone!
Life changing! I don’t say that lightly. I feel like it has changed to course of my life. I think her greatest gift is empathy. She provides a space to listen, talk and help me process through situations.
The biggest “aid” to me was her tracking with my heart. Letting me “talk and talk” and keying in to things that my heart would repeat over and over (recognizing patterns) and then asking questions aimed at that spot to “go deeper.” By doing this approach, she used challenging questions…often times questions my heart did not want to “deal with.” But it is in “dealing with” the hidden heart stuff that treasure has been discovered. She helped uncover something hidden in my heart that Jesus was trying to uncover, but without her challenging questions, I never would have seen it. And by “going there”with her with the difficult questions, the direction of my life is now actually changing toward what God has called me to do.
Lyschel brings excellent listening skills and compassion. She is always listening to me, tracking with my heart, not just my words. With that approach, she is able to ask questions to my heart that causes my heart to go deeper, unveiling more territory that needs to be explored.
