11am – 4pm at Nourishing Journey 8975 Guilford Road, Columbia MD
I began volunteering for Araminta a few years ago. It is very important to me to help you understand how truly amazing this organization is. Most causes are dedicated to recovering individuals from their situations. Araminta goes beyond, and above that call. They provide all things a survivor may need once they have left their situation. They pair the survivors with mentors and make sure every single one of their critical needs are met – for them and their children. Every single thing from medical care, therapy, clothing, housing, and schooling and care for their children. Survivors are provided food, transportation for their appointments, support in every place imaginable – courts, etc. We help them build their lives from a stable point.
Araminta is a volunteer based organization and they are in need of so much, all of the time.
On February 15th the practitioners at Nourishing Journey are donating their time and their talents to raise money that Araminta needs to continue their mission. In addition to services there will also be an education room with speakers on different subjects throughout the event.

I have way more creative sparks and wants than I could ever keep up with – you should see my To-Do List, it’s fucking ridiculous!
Partial amounts of what I want reaches you. And to boot – call me ethereal. I fall into the stereotype of being flighty, flaky, not organized, not – whatever you want to call it. I will admit it – I do come across that way. But it’s really not my truth.
The real story is I’m too intelligent, too organized, too caring, too thoughtful, too jazzed, and too damn busy. It’s not that I’m incapable of accomplishing anything I start, shit, I hardly get to start enough of what I want to.
The LISTS!! OMG the lists I have! Ideas. Ideas. Ideas! … and then more ideas!
I use a scheduling application for my email because Im one of those people who schedule when I want emails to be sent: 1) to stay on top of things I write them while I’m inspired and it’s fresh, and schedule them to send later, when they’re supposed go & 2) because often I’m replying to emails at an ungodly hour and I don’t want you to know it.
But I do sleep, I promise. I just don’t sleep in a fashion to others.
Mostly I manage – I jump. From list to idea to priority to what I want personally, and I circle back, start again. I try. I do my best, and some days I get more done than other days. And you know what – that’s ok. Because there’s always tomorrow.
The good news is that with all these ideas, and thank god I keep the lists – every once in a while I reorganize and restructure them – and turn them into something else, and then that becomes ready.
Then they are the magic that reaches you. They are exactly what needs to be heard -now.
I love how this works.
I’ve been this way all my life. It used to frustrate me, thinking I was deficient. But now I embrace my process, and I see the beauty of the creation that it is. Things need to churn in my world.
It’s when things (ideas, moments, desires) don’t become fruitful that I address them. I ask – what’s really going on here? What is the hangup, really?
Some times I realize that it wasn’t a good idea, or, and I can let it go.
Most of the time it turns out to be something that I had an energetic block for. Yes – when I say Energetic – I mean ENERGETIC – Spiritual – it involves my soul, who I really am, and what my soul really is all about. I have something to uncover at this point.
Call me weird, but This is when I really get excited. I Love doing the work on myself. I love knowing that I am working towards being authentically me. AND Because who I am is someone who loves to help you. And the more I learn, the more steps I take, the more I understand – the better I can help you in discovering what’s truly yours.
If there’s something that you want to accomplish, and are having trouble achieving it – take a moment and remind yourself that you are worth the investment.
