Shelah Sara Ahavah (pen name) is a spiritual educator, coach and author of self-help books to raise human consciousness for self-improvement, spiritual growth and good connections.
Born in the United Kingdom by her Sierra Leonean parents, she returned to Freetown West Africa at the age of 2.5 years where she grew up until the age of 21 before migrating to the UK to study professional accountancy.
Her career started as a Chartered Certified Accountant in 1992 but did not stop there. In 2008, she published her first book ‘My Business Is My Business’ under her married name Sheila Elliott, which help many small businesses developed their business skills particularly the minority business communities and women-owned businesses.
Her keen interest in spiritual matters got her involved in church affairs until 2009 when she determined she wanted to understand sacred teachings’ more profound meaning. Faced with relationship problems inherited from her childhood, she began to question her understanding of the meaning of life.
2012 was a defining year. Beset with a breakdown in her nearly twenty years of marriage, she resigned all her non-executive director appointments with several voluntary organizations. In these roles, she served as a chair of the Finance and Standard committees for her local college; a treasurer for a housing association and a paid non-executive director of an NHS Primary Care Trust- to name a few.
Over the last fifteen years, she devoted her life researching and studying spiritual teachings for personal development and growth. To resolve numerous life challenges that cause her emotional traumas, she searched into the deeper meaning of these teachings to make sense of life and build new habit patterns to resolve her problems.
In 2018 she became a Philosopher of Metaphysical Sciences, PhD. She began sharing her knowledge and skills to help others understand the purpose of life; the reasons for failed relationships; the meaning of love and how to build an inner capacity to connect well with others, as well as emotional healing techniques.
