Coach, Wife, Mother, Grandmother
When I was about 6 years old, I set up a little desk in my parent's garage so I could teach the neighbourhood children. Following my dream, I got my first teaching job at Fredericton High School in New Brunswick, Canada, without even a job interview. My dream of teaching, however, got put on the back burner when I moved to Nova Scotia and found it necessary to take "jobs" rather than pursuing my passion. The result was very unpretty, and I found myself hating my management job on the front lines of one of the toughest union environments in Canada. Finally, at around age 50, I had a profound hit to the psyche and a subsequent awakening. It took 3 years of personal soul searching and transformation and then... I was ready. Through some serendipitous events, I heard of coaching and I got it, "This is the type of teaching I was meant to do"... helping others accelerate transformation.
Since then, I've worked with hundreds of middle and senior managers (over thousands of hours) related to leadership. I've developed and delivered workshops on everything from difficult conversations and developing coaching skills to mindfulness and the law of attraction. Now, I'm focused on helping you awaken to YES... Your Enlightened Spiritual Self... in a way that is strategic as well as deeply spiritual.

My name is Sheila Kelly
I want you to see how beautiful you are.
I want you to see you're a bright, shining star.
I wrote those words years ago for a family member, not understanding at the time that they were really meant for me. Like most people, I spent many years struggling to feel connected and to feel loved.
Thankfully, I had an experience... an awakening of sorts... that lead me down a path of discovery, a path that ultimately lead me back to my Enlightened Self. I learned that each of us has an Enlightened Self that's connected to Divine Intelligence.
When I stay in connection with the divinity of the Enlightened Self, I maintain inner peace. From that place of peace, all else flows. There is an ease that allows me to navigate the world with greater confidence and competence.
Thank you for visiting. I'd love to hear from you if you'd like to chat about making life-changing connection with the higher wisdom of your Enlightened Self.
I'm truly a life-long learner and have been privileged to study with many brilliant teachers.
In addition to learning from world-class trainers, I've been in live audiences with the likes of
Ben Zander, Debbie Ford, Marianne Williamson, Dan Pink, Lynn Twist, Guy Kawasaki,
Dr. MehmetOz, Dr. Oliver Sacks, and Gary Renard.
My greatest teacher has been found in the wisdom of a book called
Course taught me that I have an Inner Teacher who loves and guides me
and has answers for my deepest questions.
I volunteer as a Course facilitator here in Halifax Nova Scotia.
Sheila has a way… no, more than that… a gift.. of asking thought-provoking questions that took me deeper into my own thoughts; yet not so deep that I was ever over my head. We were like dance partners, with Sheila allowing me to lead while she glided along with me, supporting me and sharing her experience, while never taking me off course. I did not realize the extent to which I would benefit nor that we would click as we did! Sheila was absolutely patient, sensitive, knowledgeable, an exceptional listener… and then some. There were even some times when tears surfaced. Even when I tried to hide, Sheila found me and pulled me out! Although, for some, these qualities may be intimidating, I admire Sheila, knowing she always has the best interests of her clients at heart. In the end, I dubbed her a Soul Whisperer.
