Educator Suze Casey aims to help women discover their own inspiration

Once people know what their options are, they inspire themselves, the keynote speaker says.

On Friday, April 28, the Stettler Board of Trade (SBOT) will host their fifth annual women’s conference at Stettler Community Hall.

One of the keynote speakers this year will be Suze Casey, an author, radio personality and professional educator based out of Calgary, who has been practicing her Belief Re-patterning® technique since 1999.

Author of “Belief Re-patterning: The Amazing Technique for ‘Flipping the Switch’ to Positive Thoughts,” which was published internationally in 2012 by Hay House Books, Casey has also released a number of educational tools around the technique, including apps for Android and iOS platforms.

Drawing on her 20-year career as a classroom teacher and university instructor, Casey’s mission is to teach people to create a joyful life through personal respect and self-love.

Her Belief Re-patterning system is based around creating actionable ways to embrace the power of positive thinking.

“Everyone gets that it’s important to think positively, but they don’t know how,” said Casey.

The Belief Re-patterning system, she explains, is “a proactive way of training your mind to think positively as a habit.”

While Casey has a background in education she holds a Masters of Education in Learning Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Calgary it took a critical life-changing event for her to develop her own methodology around positive thought.

“Nearly 30 years ago I was really ill and I knew that I needed to get my mind thinking positively in order to get well,” she recounted. “I looked everywhere trying to learn about how to think positively but I couldn’t find anything.”

That’s when Casey developed her own theory based on what she calls the inner coach and the inner critic.

“Most people are trying to get rid of the inner critic, but that’s not a good idea, because it’s keeping you alive it’s just a little overworked for most people,” Casey said.

Instead, Casey’s methodology is about strengthening the inner coach through supportive self-talk.

According to Casey, most people are stuck in negative self-talk, and that’s what she’s trying to change.

“If you spoke to your friends the way you speak to yourself, how many friends would you have?” she asked.

Part of her presentation at the conference will include demonstrations of her methods in action.

“I’ll be doing a demonstration that shows how what we think affects the energy around us,” she said. “I’ll also demonstrate how people will never again be energy vampires unless they choose to be.”

Casey said that she is thrilled to have been invited to speak at the conference, and is looking forward to visiting Stettler.

“I really like small town Alberta,” she commented. “Whenever I come to small town places, it just feels right to me.”

Her talk will fit in well with the conference’s theme of inspiration, but not in the traditional sense of most motivational speakers.

“I don’t know that anyone else can actually inspire us,” Casey said. “I think that they can ignite us, but it has to be our own inspiration.”

Her mission, she explains, is to educate rather than motivate.

“I really think that when people know what the options are, they inspire themselves,” she said.
