Find Life Coach | Meet Allan Hendrickson: How to Overcome Addiction and Reconnect to Your Soul?


Allan Hendrickson is one of the coaches that we found this month and we did a little interview with him. He impressed us with his knowledge and dedication.

His journey from the corridors of law to the realms of personal growth and transformation is nothing short of remarkable. Hailing from northern Illinois, he embarked on a traditional career path, earning degrees from esteemed institutions like Southern Illinois University and the University of Wisconsin. However, it was in the legal world where he found a disconnect between success and fulfillment.

He transitioned from law to entrepreneurship in the art and entertainment industry. His quest for personal growth led to encounters with luminaries like the Dalai Lama and immersive experiences in transformative programs like Landmark Education and Avatar. Embracing a holistic approach to life, he penned the insightful book, “THINK IT, FEEL IT, HAVE IT!“, delving into the profound principles of the Law of Attraction.

His path of transformation was already profound, but it wasn’t until two years ago that he made a public declaration of his true calling: coaching. With a unique coaching style rooted in compassion and empowerment, he challenges the conventional narrative surrounding addiction, offering clients a path to relief from mental resistance and a deeper understanding of their own innate power. Here is what he said.

Meet Life Coach Allan Hendrickson:


Name: Allan Hendrickson

Pillar: The Spirit, The Mind

Who is this coach for: Anyone struggling with addiction who wants to overcome their addiction and reconnect with their soul.

How they can help: By using various tools and techniques like meditation, the emotional tone scale, asking questions, and teaching conceptual knowledge about the nature of the problem.

First of all, how are you and your family doing after these Pandemic times?

We are all well thank you for asking.

How did the coronavirus pandemic affect your clients? Did it affect you at all?

I think it was an ominous time for us all and really exposed our fragility.

It created a spike in fear and uncertainty and was a cause for a few relapses into destructive behaviors for a few of my clients.

I personally experienced some fear and uncertainty and also was able to see that there was a lot of loneliness on our planet especially in the elderly population.

Just visiting them made a big difference.

What are the biggest lessons that you learned in this pandemic?

That people don’t want to be rescued or saved, they just want to be considered, listened to, and understood and whether we like it or not, we are all in this together.

The Origin:

Tell us about you, your career, how you started with your coaching career?

I grew up in northern Illinois and went to College at Southern Illinois then University of Wisconsin.

I completed my legal studies at Western State University In Fullerton California and passed the California bar exam.

I had a 4 year legal career which was fun but never really fulfilling for me.

After I retired from the law I went into the business world and started a few businesses in the Art and entertainment world along with an online amateur sports league.

While engaged in these business endeavors, I continued pursuing my personal growth and development. 

I met with the Dalai Lama in Dharmasala India when the Tibetan government remains in exile and traveled with a group of exiled Tibetan Monks thru the Himalayas.

Completed the Landmark Education curriculum for living and was on staff at Landmark for two years.

I completed the entire Avatar program, joined the Church of Scientology and participated for 4 years establishing global training benchmarks.

I then wrote my first book, “THINK IT, FEEL IT, HAVE IT!” A great understanding of the Law of Attraction, the book is available on Amazon.

I had coached people off and on during my life but did not make it my public declaration until roughly two years ago.

Currently, I have a program that I deliver to individuals dealing with addictions that are not comfortable taking their problem public, SOURCE OF ADDICTION!

What was your biggest obstacle that you had to overcome in your life that made you who you are today?

Coming to accept my individuality and believing that I had something to say that was meaningful and impactful regardless of what other people thought about it.

The Coaching Style:

How do you innovate with coaching your clients?

I establish early on in the program that seeking relief when you are in pain is not the sign of a weak broken and flawed individual but rather a very sane and smart choice given the condition they are in.

This is usually the first experience of conscious relief and an entirely radical shift in perspective regarding their condition.

I use that experience to immediately establish this fundamental fact: They have been engaging in the destructive behavior seeking relief from mental resistance and that is exactly what the program delivers: how to experience relief from mental resistance.

We establish immediately that the mind is the source and origin of all of the negative feelings and begin looking at the relationship between how they are thinking and feeling.

This leads directly into establishing a meditation practice wherein we will first go to “No thoughts” on our way to “good thoughts.”

Once they begin quieting their minds relief is very noticeable to them.

The most innovative pieces are letting them know they are not broken or flawed and they are not powerless and, in fact, it is just the opposite.

They do not have to commit themselves to a lifetime of meetings. If they can get to the Source of the problem instead of trying to stop the destructive behavior which is merely a symptom, the behavior changes.

What’s unique about your coaching approach?

My teaching is based on allowance and a knowingness that there is never anything wrong going on but rather something in need of greater understanding.

There just aren’t any accidents or coincidence unless there is some understanding missing.

The addiction, rather than exposing ones brokenness or weakness is creating an opportunity for the individual to access his thinking mind and its effect on his happiness and his ability to be, do, or have anything he wants.

It’s a significant opportunity.

What benefits do your clients get after working with you?

Conceptual knowledge and understanding of their condition and how they created all of it.

A feeling of being back on their path in life with more certainty and clarity on how to create what they want.

A primary sense of connectedness.

Do you use any specific tools to be efficient with your clients?

Meditation and the emotional tone scale.

The Impact:

If you had a super megaphone that, when you speak into, the whole world will hear your message, what would you say?

Everything you want lies in your connection to your inner being.

Get back into alignment with your inner compass, your emotions, and follow them. They will lead you to your source. If you want to understand how to do this, study the 4 and 5 year old kids, they do it naturally.

What is the greatest lesson you have learned in your life?

That our connection to our Source, God, Soul, inner being, or whatever you want to call it… is the most important relationship and dictates more than anything the quality of our life.

Your final thoughts?

The significance of the need to teach individuals about the connection between mental resistance and happiness and creation is coming into focus.

We are in great shape and we are expanding at an ever increasing rate.

I feel very good about where we are and where we are headed.
