On the Paula White website
there is a section under "Missions" which starts with: Because Paula
White is the “midwife of dreams” she is...... I was struck with
the term "Midwife" and decided to see what it meant in context to the
Gospel. I searched for Midwife of dreams and came across some
interesting information which I will share below. The term midwife
of dreams seems to be running hand in hand with other new age activities
such as "Spiritual Seekers", "Coaching", "Envisioning", "Change Makers",
etc. It seems that Paula White is getting more and more into "New
Age" techniques and teachings as her ministry grows. I have always
had reservations about Paula White and her Ministry as you probably
already know, but I am continued to be amazed at how so many "ministers
of the gospel" have turned the message of our Risen Lord and Savior into
a channel for them to make money and live like kings and queens here on

Walking the Path of a Daughter of the Earth
empowers women by reminding you of your hereditary wisdom, of your
innate connection with Earth and Spirit, and of your much-needed role
in creating a loving, sustainable future for all our children.
Engaging in this
ongoing women's mystery school offers you the opportunity to:
- Discover a lighthearted, sensuous
connection with Nature
- Sink your roots deep into what is
- Know and access your personal
- Be seen and honored for who you
- Re-enchant your daily life
of us are seekers on a spiritual path. We yearn for an ever
deepening connection with spirit. At some level
we recognize that we are spiritual beings living a physical reality.
We look for meaning, for purpose, for stability, for answers, for
magic, for an experience of the mystery, for a divine love that will
wrap us in its strength. Spiritual coaching assists you in your
Some of us have been on this path for a long time, studying
with teachers from traditions from around the world. We have taken
classes, sat in meditation, listened to gurus, gone on retreats,
journaled and prayed. We are ready to more fully commit ourselves to
doing the work of Spirit if we could just figure out how. Or we know
how but it is really difficult and we want someone to be our witness
and our sounding board. Spiritual coaching can help you with your
Some of us are new to the path. We look for answers that will
heal the body or we explore philosophies of the mind. We want to
reclaim the ancient wisdom that has been hidden from us. We know we
are here for a purpose that is greater than the ones offered to us
by our culture, and we want to find it. We are beginning to see that
there are so many beliefs and paths open to us but we're not sure
how to find the one that is best for us right now.
As a spiritual coach
I accompany seekers on their journeys. I help people get clear about
what they believe, and then learn how to live from those beliefs.
For those who are clearly on their path I offer encouragement, truth
telling, and soulful listening - spiritual
coaching. Gloria Karpinsky calls spiritual seekers
"disciples". She refers to a disciple as "one who recognizes,
commits to, and is obedient to the promptings of his or her inner
spiritual imperative and chooses to bring that consciousness into
every aspect of life." Spiritual coaching aids
you in recognizing and following and committing to your own inner
spiritual imperative in a way that works for you.
I believe that we
each have a piece of the divine puzzle - that our unique
perspectives allow us to perceive the Great Mystery as only we can.
Even the words we use as names for that which is
more than any name could be - God, Goddess, Great Mystery,
the Divine, Universe, All There Is, Holy Spirit, Yaweh, Sophia -
reflect the multiplicity of perceptions. We can and do learn from
wisdom traditions from around the world and through the ages. We
also are inspired by our own contact with the numinous.
For women who are
looking for a supportive group of wise circle sisters to learn and
grow with, I offer the 13 month path of a Daughter of the
Earth. We meet once a month together on the phone and then
individually for coaching in an earth based,
woman empowering, Goddess remembering spiritual structure.
If you yearn to
expand your capacity to embrace Spirit and you would like someone to
assist you in this process, then consider spiritual coaching with
What is Coaching?
More than a buzz word, life coaching
is a powerful alliance designed by you and
for you to help you live powerfully, successfully, joyfully, and
Life coaching assumes the individual
is healthy, resourceful and has their own answers. The life coach asks
the questions that send the clients looking for the best path for
themselves. A coach helps individuals find the life and work they
want, give their unique gifts, move towards balance and fulfillment.
Life coaching is not advice-giving,
therapy, whip wielding or cheerleading. The purpose of coaching is not
to get you to run even faster on the hamster wheel, but to aid you in
getting out of the wheel and onto the path of your

Who Hires a Coach?
Leaders, visionaries, CEOs,
corporations committed to employee satisfaction and excellence,
artists/creatives, managers, professionals, consultants, women and men
in transition, people seeking career or life changes, the full
spectrum of individuals looking for change to bring out the best in
them and their lives. Some people come to coaching for more - more
satisfaction, more money, more clarity, more heart and soul, or more
organization, for example, and some come to coaching for less - less
stress, less overwhelm, less procrastination, less drifting.
From all walks of
life people come to life coaching to realize their full potential,
to make their dreams come true. Often people come to coaching who are
in the midst of a transition or a crisis. Each of us find ourselves at
some point in our lives forced by circumstance to re-examine our
choices, our actions, our possibilities. Coaching offers clarity,
honesty, compassion, non-judgment and far vision. Sometimes people
hire a life coach to aid them in a particular process. I often work
with those who yearn for more spirituality in their lives. This
doesn't mean I teach or lead people to a particular set of spiritual
beliefs or practices. Rather I help seekers get more sure about their
own spiritual path.
One of my specialties is working with
women who are re-membering their truth, their voices, and their lives;
women who struggle with the enormous demands of life, childrearing and
work; women in the metamorphosis of menopause who yearn for meaning
and soul in a culture that denies both; women who manage to provide
care for all those around them at the expense of themselves; women who
are squeezed into situations that de-power them;
women who are ready and willing to step into their own full power.
I coach women individually in the Wise Woman Tradition, and
also work with women in groups as we walk the path of a Daughter of
The only constant in life is change.
If you are ready for it, go ahead, create the world you yearn for!
self-confidence depends on the fact that I have discovered my
dimensions. It does not become me to make myself less than I am.

What Happens in Coaching?
Most coaching happens over the phone,
although the coach and the coachee can meet in person if they live in
the same area.
The first few sessions of coaching
are spent in discovery - exploring your
core values, your life purpose, your personal code of conduct, the way
you move through the world. During this discovery we map out what you
want from coaching, identifying concrete measures of success. We also
design the coaching alliance that would best meet your needs. After
the initial discovery sessions, we meet regularly, usually 3 times
each month, continuing to deepen your learning
while moving you into action that gets you to your goals and
How long do people work with a
I ask people to make an initial
commitment to coaching for 3 months. After that clients continue on a
month to month basis for as long as they are getting the results they
want. The practical, results oriented approach
of coaching motivates you to make the changes you want in your life in
a relatively short time.
Do you look around and
think "There's got to be a better way..."?
Are you the one who
notices the familiar way of problem solving doesn't work?
Do you have a
vision for a different world, one that is more congruent with
Are you called to
make a difference in your family, your community,
your work or the world?
Change Makers is the name I use for
people who yearn for change, who are called to make things different,
to make a difference. You have ideas and dreams, systems and
creations, opinions and services that need to be lived. You think. You
imagine. You experiment. You yearn for shifts. You like to rock the
boat because you are visionaries. You see the path and where it's
going and need to alter the direction. You are willing to take risks
to follow your own knowing.
If you are a Change Maker, I want to be
Coaching can help you get crystal
clear about your values and your vision, taking your
dreams and moving them into
goals fully supported by strategies and
actions. The two prongs of coaching - learning and action - work
together to give you the laser focus and the structure necessary to
push your passion into manifestation.
Imagine this - a
marriage of the dream and the practical actions that make the dream
real. Imagine knowing in your bones how to live your purpose,
how to channel your wisdom to make the differences you are called to.
That is the success of coaching - it provides a solutions based
vehicle to get you to live the changes you want to make in a way that
works for you.

I am passionately committed to
creating a sustainable, life honoring, respectful, and peaceful
future. One of the techniques I have developed to do this is to
facilitate groups in a Far Visioning process.
This interactive, challenging and thought provoking process gets
participants thinking beyond their own life times. Shifting our
focus beyond ourselves shakes some of our fundamental assumptions of
time, work, personal power, and the choices we are making.
The Q'Ero people, the Inkas who
fled to above 17,000 feet in the high Andes when the Conquistadors
came, were my inspiration for this way of thinking. They have
members of their tribe whose job it is to sit in vision, holding the
vision of what they want for themselves and the earth in the future,

We can't begin to imagine that far
off (yet). We get as far ahead as we can and build backwards to the
present, eventually arriving at a place where we are
anchored to what has meaning for us,
living in the moment, holding clearly the vision of the future we
want and making choices to make it a reality.
What are your thoughts on this article?
So as you can see.
Paula White's claiming to be a "midwife of dreams" is in direct
correlation to the new age teaching. Nothing surprising there
when you consider that Paula has become so attached to T.D. Jakes,
TBN, and so many other Prosperity Gospel teachers who are using
"new" modern ways of approaching the gospel. More to come.
