"People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them." – George Bernard Shaw.
Life coach Sheilaa Hite and Shaw would have been great friends.
They both base their life on a theory she calls a simple law of life — that whatever energy you put out into the world will determine what comes back to you.
Those caught in the new age buzz of the fast growing cult classic The Secret or read Michael Losier’s book The Law of Attraction might be nodding their head at the familiarity of the theory. However, Hite said her workshops take the centuries-old practice one step further.
There are plenty of chances to delve into Hite’s life skills with the renowned psychic and life coach hosting private consultations, panel discussions and workshops as part of Whistler Wellness Week.
The author will be signing books Saturday, May 12 from 9:30 to 11 a.m. She also joins an interactive panel called Life Purpose: Balancing Body, Mind and Spirit on the Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. and pairs up with Laurin Kyle Boyle for Prioritizing Your Passions from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. All events take place at the Telus Conference Centre.
Hite discusses what readers can find between the pages of her newest book Power Secrets: The Champion's Guide to Winning in All Areas of Your Life. She asserts everyone has the ability to make their dreams can come true, but you don’t need a star to wish on, only the self-realization of knowing how to turn “no” in your mind to “yes” in your reality.
“You will take a look at yourself from an objective perspective,” she said. “You will learn how to shift what hasn’t worked; understand old programming. And then how to take that energy and make it work for you… I teach people how to find the yes in someone else’s no.”
Finding that yes often requires an examination of the emotions tied to that no.
“The possibilities are numerous once we decide to act and not react.”– Bernard Shaw.
