Are you ready?

I “came out of the closet” as a healer only recently – as I grew comfortable referring to myself as a Quantum Healer.

As you could probably imagine – me, an ordinary and common girl living in a big city, surrounded by adopted (stubborn) values and opinions of all kinds, with no big world adventures under her belt, and no real connection to what I thought at the time was something that only “special” people did. All I was thinking at the time was I wanted somethng bigger for myself.

Something kept turning me. When I would begin to walk down the path I was accustomed to, something always caught my attention and made me curious, made me want to explore a different path with different views. And I did that inner work, and I became detective, and I wanted to understand what was really driving me. Eventually I relaxed into trusting. I even remember saying out loud I have no idea why i am doing this, it’s like I’m crazy. But I went for it. Now, it feels more than right, and it feels good to be able to support myself in what I believe I have been called to be and do.

For everything there is a process and only those who have decided to make such a big and life changing move understand that this is so much more than changing offices, job titles, or companies – this is about listening to that call. Deciding to say no to all the distractions, all the fears (even the good kind of fears, like is this really a smart move? How will I pay my bills?), and all of the comforts we are so nestled in definitely speaks to who we are and what we are capable of. And in order to pull all that off you need bravery in your pocket.

We are all on a mission – to be happy, to feel love, and to live the life of our dreams. Deciding to stop listening to everyone, to stop accomodating, to postpone no more, and to begin to do from what feels right (not from what’s right, or smart by other peoples standards), and to start exploring the possiblities and moving forward towards a new reality – is a huge deal! You have to allow yourself to become, to embrace, really it’s allowing vulnerability – in the most vulnerable of ways. You have to have new and consistent dialogues with yourself, checking in, and really feel into what’s right. Becasue chances are what you’re exploring – doesn’t have a compass or a roadmap. Chances are no one’s been there before. You have only yourself to rely on. And the best way to keep your footing while on the journey – is to find the support you absolutely need.

It’s great if a loved one or best friend knows how to support you unconditionally, always able to pick you up when you feel you chose an impossible mission – but the reality is we need to be able to find what we need in our own selves – in our own hearts and brains, in our own guts and emotions. It can often feel dark in there – but we have to tap into that drive that will bring us into our light.

Guidance on tapping into your own authentic desires, releasing the conditioning habits and patterns that no longer align with our desires, and truly healing ourselves from everything that has brought us to this point so that we can move forward easily and comfortably is all a necessary part of the process. And you absolutely can do this yourself – but there will always be moments when you will have questions, and in need of a fresh perspective. Aligning yourself Mind Body and Spirit is the order you’re looking at.

Fundraiser to stop human trafficking in Maryland

February 15th, 2020

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.

A quick story about Gratitude

I began my daily practice of gratitude years ago when I went through a rough time in life and I hit my bottom. I wasn’t suicidal per se, but I was ready to accept death if it happened.

Beginning my daily practice of finding something that made me smile (which is actually very hard to do when you’re as depressed and hopeless as I was), and a gratitude list is what showed me my courage – and that led me to my strength.

What and who I was grateful for just a few years ago were very different than what I express now. Looking back I wrote things like: my dog made a funny look on her face today when she pooped in the neighbors tree box – that made me smile. … Because of those silly things, in time I started to laugh.

I do have to be an active participant in my journey. And having someone, or a group of people, helping me is even better, sometimes even a blessing. I was on my healing journey and at a point where I wanted my body to be strong again – I needed my body to feel strong again – so that emotionally I could feel strong and find courage to keep trying for what I wanted. Around this time I met a personal trainer that I could not afford, but I managed to squeek out a few sessions with him – enough to take some notes, to feel some inspiration, and I created a plan and routine for myself. This also helped me realize that I once had the ability to do this for myself, only I had forgotten.

Forgetting how to take care of yourself is very humbling. It only takes one small gesture, and then your whole world begins to change. Sometimes people see, and so they help. Others, like GB the personal trainer probably never knew what was driving me those few times we met. But I was with myself 100% of the time. I cannot even begin to sit here and write out the many ways I have grown since then. Hell, I probably don’t even know them all myself – these are the sorts of things that trickle out over time. Making the connections is the importance of the lesson, and then doing something with what you learned.

I still need to actively seek gratitude and courage. I have to remember. I still need to be conscious of when I’m not smiling. I still need to find my patterns. These things truly keep my head on straight. It’s about priority and it’s about choice. Because I want life experience. A better one. I want happiness. I want to feel joy. I don’t want to feel hurt. I don’t want to feel wounded. So I practice – daily. And now when you look at my list, you will find entries like: I am grateful for meeting RB – she is such an inspiration, and because of her I can see things in a new way, and I feel better.

Isn’t it remarkable how you find what you need when you need it, not even yet fully realizing what it will ultimately give you?! Sometimes it may take years and many cycles of something working itself out to realize what a gift it truly is. You do have to be an active participant in your journey, all the time.
