An avid adventurer, Shelora travels and teaches the “Art of Miraculous Living.” She has a knack for inspiring others to live lives that defy the predictable. She ignites the free spirit of creative self- expression, and brings out the magical child in everyone whose life she touches.
Shelora believes inspiration and authenticity are a powerful force for social change. She is deeply interested in the new edge of thought that is transforming our planet, freeing it from guilt and fear and raising the consciousness of humanity.
Her endless curiosity, sense of adventure, and boundless creativity have led her to reinvent herself many times. In addition to being the mother of two lovely, gracious, and brilliant daughters, and grandmother to one marvellous grandson, Shelora is a writer, broadcaster, and public speaker. She holds a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology, and, in addition to teaching, and leading workshops, she has conducted a private practice as a Spiritual Counselor for many years.
However, the underlying theme of her life has been her quest for the Light. She first fell in love with the Light during her first stage appearance at age three. At age sixteen, following a performance as Titania in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, she was chosen to attend the National Theatre School of Canada. A career as an actress, director, producer, filmmaker, and finally a High School drama teacher, followed.
On November 23rd, 1990, on the eve of the first Gulf War, she witnessed an overwhelmingly magnificent and inspiring vision of Jesus Christ while driving home from the Seven Sacred Waterfalls, Hana in Maui. There were four other people in the car driving the road home from the Seven Sacred Waterfalls in Hana, Maui. They too saw what she saw. It changed her life forever.
Soon afterwards she discovered A Course in Miracles. She has been a student and teacher of the Course ever since. Her practice as a Spiritual Counselor is solidly based in the forgiveness principles of A Course in Miracles. She has helped literally thousands of people overcome their resistance to living the miraculous life that is their birthright.
Shelora particularly loves working with youth, especially the new generations of Indigo, Crystal and Rainbow Children, the masters of “beginner’s mind.” She finds the field of infinite creative possibility that they bring irresistible. Towards that end, she works with children of all ages, assisting them to remember who they really are.
Over the years, parts of the self that we don’t like, or that frighten us have been projected onto others, covered over, compensated for, forgotten, sacrificed, denied. They show up in dysfunctional or unsatisfactory relationships, addictive behaviours, or unfulfilled dreams.
These separated, compartmentalized aspects of the authentic self are hidden in the shadows, bound by guilt, shame and fear. The result is a stubbornly maintained impasse.
To assist others in breaking through the layers of resistance to their own greatness is Shelora’s mission in life. To that end she has gathered a wide variety of clearing and healing techniques designed to reintegrate the parts of the Self that have been split off and disowned, the lost pieces of the puzzle that are hindering her clients from connecting with their true greatness.
Each of the fragmented parts of the Soul is assigned a role or “sub-personality” to play in maintaining the impasse: the critical parent, the judge, the complainer, the abuser, the appeaser, the know it all, the top dog, the underdog, etc, is given a voice. The various aspects, characters, relationships, whether real or imagined, are acknowledged, heard, accepted, embraced, expressed, appreciated, released, cleared and finally reunited.
Once the various parts of the self that have been identified, distinguished, and brought to light, she conducts a powerful forgiveness and reintegration process. that ultimately resolves the impasse.
As a result, all the pain of the past, the rejected relationships, the unforgiven mistakes, the wasted talent, the regrets and resentments, all the fragmentation, denial and drama, the inflexible judgments, opinions, assessments, complaints and grievances that use our vital life energy to maintain, are resolved.
This process restores the individual to their natural, original state of wholeness, completeness and perfection. In short, the person’s life reconnects to an inherent foundation of fundamental integrity. The conversations that were never completed, the relationships that were never healed, miraculously transform, giving her clients access to vital life energy that was previously unavailable, separated, compartmentalized, tied up in denial and resistance. Once the knots have been untangled, clients find themselves unencumbered, free to invent authentic, inspired, creative, powerful, amazing lives, where miracles are the natural order of things.
This is the Art of Living a Miraculous Life.
