Inspiring you to awaken your true self, reconnect with your inner guide & deepen your commitment to love - for yourself & others.

 

IT WAS 6 AM.

I WAS THE CHARGE NURSE ON NIGHTS. AS THE REST OF MY COLLEAGUES SCRAMBLED TO FINISH THE LAST OF OUR DUTIES, I SAW THE CALL BELL LIGHT FLASHING.

I RELUCTANTLY ANSWERED THE CALL ONLY TO FIND BLOOD. SPOUTING EVERYWHERE.

I thought, “It’s finally happened. The cancer has finally eroded this poor woman’s carotid!”


But that wasn’t all.

Over the next few weeks, I became plagued. Afflicted with this newly awakened sensitivity and susceptibility. Things that had never bothered me before: the (foul) odour of gastric fluid; witnessing a visitor’s baby seizing.


They became these insurmountable, grotesque monsters that I couldn’t stop myself from feeling.


And crying.


Panic attack, after panic attack, after panic attack, quickly assaulted me. You can’t stay at this job, Rana. You can’t live like this. Leave, now.

That was the first time I had any understanding of what my awareness is. What it means to feel IN your body.

So, I left. I left a career of seeming stability as a registered nurse to go on “medical leave”. I couldn’t pretend not to feel things anymore. I needed help.

I caught up on sleep. I took my doctor’s suggestion to go on antidepressants.

So, I took my meds, even though that was such a hard pill to swallow.

Over the next month though, things started to go haywire. My heart raced so fast, I couldn’t drink even 1 cup of coffee. I had this sudden burst of energy. Talking to strangers became easier than ever. I had a flood of ideas about everything: my life, my future, my mission. Sounds great, right?!

And then one day, it all came tumbling down. I got paranoid and agitated when a storekeeper “told me my fortune.” I stumbled around a neighbourhood seeing in vivid detail the wreaths that adorned the front doors. I firmly believed – and felt – as though I had an ectopic pregnancy. My friend drove me to the hospital, where I felt as though my body was going into labour.

Less than a week later, I learned that I had bipolar disorder. That was full blown mania, with a touch of psychosis. I was relieved. I mean, I’m just like Catherine Zeta Jones, for Christ’s sake!

And then, something felt wrong. My body was swollen. So swollen, it hurt to move. I couldn’t exercise without feeling as though my skin would stretch so far, it would break. And then, the darkness set in. True depression.

I. Couldn’t. Feel. Anything.

Pain

Joy

Happiness

Motivation

Gone.

It took so much to do so little. Getting dressed, taking a shower, going to school…these all became hurdles. It took so much out of me to complete these tasks, that my evenings were spent laying in bed, watching Netflix and eating pizza.


One day, I had enough. I talked to my psychiatrist. I told him I couldn’t live like this anymore. Please put me on something, even if it’s another antidepressant!

He did.

Nothing changed.

Nothing changed for me, until I decided to look for help beyond what my medications could offer me.

And boy, did I find it!

AND, I can help you too.

My name is Rana Abdelkarim.

Stop surviving. Start THRIVING.

 

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

Jessica Kruse

"I've been battling resistance to move my business more online even though I know it's what I need to do to get to the next level, and stay afloat and thriving during COVID. I also have been triggered by unhealthy relationship patterns as of late. [The biggest change I noticed after working with Rana is] I began trusting myself more and having more compassion for myself, it was also easier for me to see my patterns and the situation I'm currently in more clearly. I've been feeling much more confident and am slowly surely stepping into my power and taking more action towards my goals. I'm also not as hard on myself and am able to forgive myself when I don't get everything done that I wanted too.


[I recommend Rana to ] Anyone whose seeking to understand themselves at a deeper level and have more compassion for themselves. If you need someone to listen and guide you firmly but lovingly, deeper into self inquiry to discover the deeper message you're trying to relay. She brought a lot of clarity to what exactly it was I needed to work on for the session- as there was a lot going on at once haha she listened and held space so well for me and pinpointed the main issue(s) amongst a storm of issues- that we're truly all related anyway but she directed the ship through the storm with conviction and confidence and made me feel heard and comfortable. I would recommend her highly to anyone as I have full confidence in her as a professional, especially as I know and can feel how much she deeply cares for her clients and takes her work very seriously; being very thorough in every step from her studies to her notes to serving with full attention, presence and compassion to following up after treatment and offering an effective treatment plan.


[The statements she used were] super relevant and I didn't see some of them coming but they were so bang on especially forgiving myself for believing it wasn't rape because there was no extreme force/violence. So grateful and probably don't even remember most but they were very powerful. I honestly felt like it was great and just wished I would have recorded it!"

 

PRIVATE HEALING SESSIONS

The sessions below are available over Zoom.

If you are in the Edmonton area, you can click here to book an in-person session.

 

Subconscious Imprinting Technique (S.I.T) is the discovery and reprogramming of limiting beliefs, patterns & behaviours that are negatively affecting your life and wellbeing. S.I.T is for you if: you’ve had chronic physical symptoms that won’t go away, despite your best efforts; you’ve had moments where your behaviour just can’t change, even though you’ve tried; you’re locked into patterns of overwhelm, overthinking, anxiety, depression...

 

MY APPROACH

SWEET & SALTY

I’m a former Registered Nurse turned Healer: specializing in Subconscious Imprinting & Reiki.

My approach (in life and with my clients) is best described as sweet and salty. 

I am creative and innovative in creating a safe and sacred space, in which you feel completely nurtured and taken care of.

And,

I don't shy away from adversity. Discomfort. Brutal honesty. When done from a place of love and respect, it can facilitate miracles.

You should know: I expect YOU to be a team player. You must be the one that choose change, even if it is difficult.


I, along with your other chosen team members (your doctor, other practitioners, partner, friends, family etc) will be there to support and celebrate with you along the way.
