Living Wholly: In your words, what is your life’s work?
Beth Mobilian: My life’s work is to support people in identifying and releasing what gets in the way of them living the most joyful, fulfilling, fun and meaningful life. I support my clients to release that which gets in the way of their loving and knowing that they are love. From that place, whatever one chooses to do in life becomes a vehicle to express the loving that he/she already is. From there, the opportunity to express that loving is easier to access. The vehicle is used to express who you are. To me, this is a redefining of purpose. This doesn’t mean we don’t have preferences. Of course, we do. However, people confuse purpose with what they do. I love supporting clients being less attached to the doing/the career and finding the joy in everything they are doing.
Living Wholly: What inspired you to do this work with others?
Beth Mobilian: There was something inside of me that called me towards books and teachers in personal growth and transformation, which led me to share this with others. Ultimately, I was inspired to do this work after talking with a friend who was on her way to a divorce mediation. She had a 45-minute drive and called me on the way. She was ready to go in guns blazing. I was such a seeker at that time and was very new at this work. In that conversation, something shifted for her. We spoke about collaboration versus againstness and loving versus fear. We explored the possibility of both people winning and coming together on the settlement. Hours after the court, the judge reached out to her to say that it was the quickest, most effective and peaceful mediation he’d ever done. My friend called me and said “you have to do this”. At that point, it became apparent this could be a vehicle to express the things that turned me on and to share my loving in the world.
Living Wholly: What do you consider one of your most unique gifts to the world?
Beth Mobilian: I get so excited knowing what is available on the opposite side of this work with my clients. I am a little kid when a client shows up. I let them know how fun this will be. I see them the way I can’t wait for them to see themselves. A gift of mine is that I truly see what my clients are holding as difficult or painful and we use that in service to tapping into their vibrancy, joy and worthiness. I hold the vision for them. I see them the way Spirit sees them. I don’t see them as wrong, wounded or needing to be fixed. I can’t wait to hold their hand and guide them through their journey. I think they can feel that and the vision I have for them. They sense there is truth to it because I am energetically exuding it.
Living Wholly: What has been the most challenging experience in your life that turned out to be the most meaningful opportunity to your life's path?
Beth Mobilian: Awakening and looking around and going, “Oh God, what have I done?” It is almost funny. It is almost like I want to go back in that place where it was my mother’s fault, the weather’s fault, my husband’s fault and the list goes on. I am living and holding myself to my intention to live consciously. To experience the moments when I am not and having the wisdom to know when I am not. It is challenging and an opportunity to live what I am teaching. There is nothing that I am not living. Relatability with my clients is important to me. I think of my channel as ways of being. I am right there in the trenches. I now have access to take care of myself and not need anything outside of myself to feel better. I think of myself as someone that is grounded. I curse. I am loving, but no bullshit. I am holding in the spiritual context and meeting my clients where they are.
Living Wholly: What teachers have you worked with and/or currently work with to inspire and support your evolution in consciousness?
Beth Mobilian: I always go to Drs. Ron and Mary Hulnick from the University of Santa Monica. They changed my life. No doubt. Early on, I was awakened by “A Course in Miracles” and Marianne Williamson. I also, love Esther and Jerry Hicks, Byron Katie, Mama Gena, Gabrielle Bernstein, Glennon Doyle Melton and Brene Brown. I totally relate to Brene Brown. She is no bullshit and a regular lady. I can’t get enough of her.
Truly my greatest teachers are my kids. Without a doubt, they were sent here to teach me. It wasn’t until they came into my life that I really understood how important it was to stay present and to commit to higher levels of consciousness. They are such a reflection of when I am awake and when I am not. When I go to sleep and the patterns are activated, I see how they respond to me. There is no greater motivation to get back into my center and into alignment than my children.
In addition, my teachers are the women I work with, clients, University of Santa Monica friends and my everyday interactions. I would give up all the teachers and books, for the lessons that I am privileged to have in everyday life. Observation and awareness are such a part of life and so important to who I am.
Living Wholly: What does living wholly mean to you?
Beth Mobilian: All of life is in service to our growth and evolution of consciousness. It is so wonderful to do this by exploring, eating healthy and exercising. This creates great balance in life. But, what’s also, important is messing up. Eating gluten on Sunday, having a glass of wine, drinking tequila - everything is welcome. I don’t judge it. Even the gray hairs and fat rolls. I support people in embracing and not beating themselves up. I embrace it all – the fear, the pain and the grieving. It all has a place at the table.
Living Wholly: What is your favorite quote that supports you?
Beth Mobilian: “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I will meet you there.” By Rumi
It offers the message I am referring to. We can all hang out there. All are welcome.
Living Wholly: How do you take care of your Self as a coach in order to be a clear vessel and centered in your Loving as a human?
Beth Mobilian: Physically I stay active. It is important to move and get the blood flowing. I enjoy the outdoors and engage by biking, skiing and hiking. To me, it is about connecting to nature. There are deep breaths available in Nature.
I love being quiet and reading. I also, enjoy hearing authors speak and listening to a book. There is always a jewel that I can use or offer someone. Looking for those nuggets are fun for me. I am also, incredibly blessed to have my trio partners that support me with deeper processing. We meet on a regular basis and we process together.
A coach needs a coach. I don’t ask anything of my clients that I don’t ask of myself. I get coached. It is so important to expand and stay in the work. I liken this work to anything. It is much like other things. One doesn’t just do one yoga class or go for one run. This is a lifetime practice to stay healthy.
