Dearest ButterflyMoms!!!

Top of the mornin’ to ya! I’m feeling especially good after one of THE best ButterflyMoms workshops yesterday! :)! I also had two coaching clients yesterday and it felt AMAZING to them and to me!  It felt like I was in alignment with my heart.

So in the workshop we are talking about chakras and how they work or don’t work for us. I just noticed an event yesterday that is tickling my funny bone…you know the universe has a VERY funny sense of humor! :)! Well, I went into one of the banks in Holliston yesterday because my bankcard would not work with the code I had. It was CRAZY hot and muggy yesterday so I tried just the drive-through because I had my girls in the car and to take them out…if you have them you know what I mean 😉 Turns out I had to go inside to get it fixed. When I got inside one of the tellers said to another out loud, “Do you see that lady over there? Her name is Maria and she gives the BEST hugs. Go ask her for one.”  Turns out she had gotten a hug from me THREE YEARS ago and it is STILL feeding her soul when she connects to it! :)! WOW! If you know me at all that by the time I left with my girls I had hugged EVERYONE at the bank and left them in a puddle of gushy-ness! :)! It was awesome!!!!!!!!The amazing women who come to my workshop also say they LOVE the hugs. If I were to dissect this HUG THING OF MINE, I can say that each time I hug I open my heart the biggest I know how. I am as present as I know how to be in those moments. It did not start off this way, it just evolved that way. How people react is very interesting. Oftentimes it’s like a moth to a light…like they are being DRAWN or PULLED…

My girls... :)!

When I got home after my workshop I was drawn to watch an Oprah Show I had recorded. It was about two 82 year old twin sisters from Knoxville, TN who SAW (to notice is the first step) that there were many people around them who were going hungry. They started THE LOVE KITCHEN based on the principle that EVERYONE IS GOD’s SOMEONE…(side note: if the “god” word freaks you out then replace it with any other word that works, it’s about the meaning not the actual word, itself. Many of us get tripped up on that….for me I use the word “universe”. CHOOSE what works best for you!) When you see these beautiful sisters you get a complete picture of what LOVE incarnate looks like. They are happy, simple, humble, kind, giving….and THEY LOVE TO HUG!!!!! My kind of peeps!!! I send Ellen and Helen LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all the way from Boston! They are on Facebook which if you go to their site you can access directly…  www.thelovekitchen.org. When you post let them know you read about them on ButterflyMoms. Spread the love!

A scene from NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD...is oftentimes how most of us live our lives

As I wrap up today, I want to leave you with the gentle reminder that we are SOULS having a HUMAN experience. Our TO DO list, although helpful, can also be crippling because they take us OUT OF OUR FEELINGS and into our heads. This will cause you to live a life that is NUMBED OUT. Take a moment. Touch something alive. Hug a tree! Hug a person…especially someone who REALLY needs it. Whenever I give money to homeless people I ask for a hug. YES, sometimes they are smelly but SO WHAT! I have a shower when I get home and they have no home! Plus the look on their face….and the way my heart opens up even just a little more….is priceless! :)!

ENGAGE YOUR LIFE! ACTIVATE IT NOW! BREATHE! FEEL! LIVE! If you were looking for a sign let this be it!!!! This is your “permission” to be you :)!!!! GO FOR IT! Stop acting like you have all the time in the world. Do YOU know how much time you have left on earth? Do you? No one does but we ALL KNOW it is FINITE. We will all die sooner or later, many with no warning so instead of just attaching to the things that have no meaning TO YOU I’m inviting you to ENGAGE YOUR LIFE!

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! FEELS GOOD!  (and no I have not had sugar or caffeine this a.m. I’m just thrilled that you gave your heart the gift of reading this blog! )

Great BIG honkin’ hugs,

Maariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
