In ALIGNMENT with ISLÂM

السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُم ورَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكاتُه

Rabab Maher

I’m a citizen of the earth and empowered empath.

My energy revolves around heart healing and my personal values: graceful self-growthcreative expression and functional learning. I’m all about transparency, congruency, truth, fairness and kindness. I believe in prevention over treatment, – ‘A dirham of prevention is better than a wealth of cure.’ – possibility over hope, dancing with discomfort, embracing fear and gracious gratitude over complaints (a luxury in and of itself).

I’m also an insatiable bibliophile and otaku.

WHAT I DO & HOW I DO IT

MY TOP 5 HOWs

HOW I REALISE MY WHY: Functional Framework for an open, receptive and embracing ear, mind and heart.

HEART HEALING:Grasp and embody Ash-Shahâdah for TRUE LOVE to appreciate the ultimate truth, mercy, kindness, gratitude, forgiveness and patience, with unwavering devotion for surrendering freedom and flexibility (heart resiliency).
HONE INTUITION:Assimilate and implement Istikhâra Prayer for ALL decision-making, before EVERY deed, in ALL areas of life.
ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS:Clarify the fundamentals for a firm (and fuss free) foundation (for flexible flow).
SIMPLIFYING THE COMPLEX:See, assess and deconstruct the big picture into small sustainable systems™.
REGENERATE CLARITY:Explore possibilities by discerning the facts, identifying discrepancies and preconceptions, and reframing perspectives and perceptions, for a critical, constructive, neutral and objective mindset shift.

RAINBORESUME

Your malady is from you, but you do not perceive it.
Your panacea is within you, yet you do not sense it.

You presume you are a tiny speck,
But within you is enfolded the entire universe.

You are indeed the evident book,
By whose alphabets the hidden manifest.

There is no need to look beyond yourself,
As what you seek is within you if you only reflect.

‘Ali Ibn Abi Tālib رضي الله عنه

They aid in rebalancing the direct and immediate emotions and then gradually the root cause.

    I facilitate mindful hearts to realise their feelings (and lifestyle habits) so they are able to communicate how they influence their entire wellbeing and the healing process. By confronting and acknowledging emotions, it raises self-awareness in understanding how they are affecting the body to initiate psycho-emotional healing, in turn impacting physical healing, for a balanced and healthy whole wellbeing.
