Hello and welcome!
My name is Sabina Sanghar Fitzsimmons. I am originally from the UK and live in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. Firstly, let me begin by saying that each of us has our own story to tell and so before I invite you to explore my website I want to share some of my story.
I too have had my share of ups and downs in life. I have grown and overcome many obstacles time and time again. Just when I had thought I had already done the "inner work" and moved past it, either the same or other issues came up. Issues such as self-sabotaging and negative thought patterns/limited beliefs that held me back from my highest potential. Those feelings of shame and judgement, including other people's ideas/fears/belief systems that got passed down from generation to generation and the cycle continues! And what about those self-limiting core beliefs about not feeling worthy/being good enough/smart enough/comparing myself to others? If you resonate with a few or all of these, I want you to know there is nothing to be ashamed about. It is possible to change it, starting with ourselves.
It wasn't until about a decade ago when I reached a major turning point in my life. I can only describe it as my "soul waking" up from a deep slumber. I was ready to do whatever work was necessary to repair, heal and transform. I asked Spirit for guidance. And do you know how my journey of healing and transformation began? It all started with self-love. Nurturing and loving myself back to self, one gentle step at a time. This involved a lot of the tools and resources that you are familiar with: prayer, reflection, meditation, journalling, self-help books, attending personal/spiritual growth workshops, coaching, sharing with others etc. All of which supported me in peeling back the layers and undoing the old conditioning and thought patterns so a newer, healthier, happier, confident and shining version of myself could emerge. It was not easy work and was very emotional and exhausting indeed. It took a lot of time and patience on my part. I had to make space in my life, be committed and to trust the process.
As I started to do the inner work, I began to see the light at the end of the tunnel, it was exhilarating! I was very fortunate to have a loving support system holding space for me while I underwent my own transformation. I cannot stress the importance of a safe and loving space to support you as you do this deep inner work.
Fast forward to a few years ago. I had this deep desire, a calling you could say, to shine my light and be that expression of love that resides within each of us. I saw myself stepping into my power and joining hands with a global community whose passion and purpose was to serve, empower and shift others to wake up and reconnect to their own magnificent light! It's as if a huge planetary light bulb had switched on and more and more people began to awaken. I felt this immense connection to the call but I was terrified! I felt I didn't have the courage or self-confidence to step into something so BIG! I had fears about being judged or criticized until I realized that it was my own insecurities creeping up on me! But, when I slowed down and connected back to love, the fear started to slip away. It felt "right". In my heart, I knew I wanted to become a teacher, a mentor, but one that supported personal growth and inner transformation. I wanted to help others find themselves, especially those that are new on their path.
They say "when the student is ready, the teacher will appear" and so did my teacher/mentor, Leon VanderPol. His spiritual values and teachings resonated deeply with me. I became certified as a Deep Transformational Life Coach at his school The Centre for Transformational Coaching and Living.
And, so here I am! Now, I don't know where this new path will take me (smile), but what I do know is that Spirit led me here for a reason, and so I trust.
