MY OPRAH DREAM REALIZED….PART 2!!!! YES!!!!!

Dearest Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

HAPPY 50th BEAUTIFUL DOUGLAS!!!!!!!!! MWAH!!!!!!!!!

First a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my beautiful husband Doug who today turns 50!!!! What a ride we have been on in just 10 years!  WHEW WHO!!! Looking forward to future adventures!!!

Next some housekeeping issues…

BEAUTIFUL Susan Wornick from ABC's CHANNEL 5 in Boston! What a wonderful human being! WOW!

*Just got access to my emails after about 8 weeks. Have over 8,000 emails to go through. If you sent me an email and I did not respond please don’t take it personally, I could only access emails through an iPhone and it was impossible for me to do that with such a high volume of emails. Shifting through them now. They are still trying to recover my hard drive and I would say within two weeks I will have most everything back. (fingers crossed!!!!)

*The www.butterflymoms.com website is up and hobbling along. Still needs some tweaks but there is lots you can check out like the ABC News Report by the lovely Susan Wornick under the “WATCH” section and you can also check out workshops and retreats I’m doing. 😉 Thank you for bearing with me as right now the blogs are not all there and it makes it a bit tricky to read prior blogs (for those who want to really experience how very amazing this journey has been). It will get better. For right now it is what it is. ;)…Gentle reminder to SURRENDER! 😉

As you enter today’s blog I offer a gentle reminder to just BREATHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! AHHHHHHHHHHH! Breathing makes the journey juicier! 😉

I’d like to THANK YOU for coming on this journey with me!!!! Last week over 2,000 of you came to sip on Sophia’s gifts of LOVE to us! I am DEEPLY honored. Each Friday that you SHOW UP here adds YOUR energy to BUTTERFLYMOMS and in turn gives you energy multiplied back to you! If you take a moment to be still you will feel it. How do you know it truly FEEDS your soul? The simple answer is that you know by simply asking “DOES THIS FEEL GOOD? DOES IT FILL ME WITH ENERGY? LIGHTNESS?” If something feels GOOD it is giving you energy. If it feels ICKY it’s taking away energy! By doing things like coming to BUTTERLFLYMOMS changes your whole energy vibration in the world. It makes you lighter when you open yourself up to this kind of SOUL GROWTH!!!

Still have lots going on….I’m feeling pressure at this point because this are shifting so much week to week that I might not include what I need to but that is a WONDERFUL lesson in letting go! (I guess I need a LOT of reminding around this lesson because it keeps coming up as you will see.)

Last week I started the blog out by writing WOW! WOW! WOW!…and this week has been no different. From where I left off last blog I left off with… “We had VIP seating and I sat behind Stedman and Gail for a part of the first show. Cameras were not allowed but I did sneak in my phone and so did a lot of people. After a while everyone was taking photos. It was hard though because the phone does not have zoom. This place WAS MASSIVE! I’m going to have to make this a two part blog because it’s getting too long. There is lots and lots still to talk about!”

So the rest of the night was about movie stars and heart-warming stories from everyday people who have done extraordinary things! Everyone was adding their own energy of GRATITUDE and the LOVE in the United Center just grew and grew and grew!!!! I could feel Sophia around me. It might sound strange to people but just because the person is gone does not mean the relationship is. It feels soooooo wonderful to be able to feel her. It feels like the deepest LOVE I’ve ever ffelt. It’s the type of LOVE that lifts your life standards and increase your heart’s ability to forgive and adore. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh (sigh) 😉

Where's Doug?

One story that sticks out for me is Rosie O’Donnell. She came up to us back stage like a magnet was drawing her to us. Rosie looked as surprise as we were that she was talking to us. It was only when I got home that I got my AHA MOMENT!

The front side of my vision board...One line says, "Fly like a Butterfly. Mingle like an A-lister."Other side of my Vision Board....Hello Rosie!!! 🙂 Let's work together!

I looked at my VISION BOARD and saw that Rosie O’Donnell was on there four times!!!!! I put her photos on there because to me it represented my dream of being a talk show host! You can call it what you will but it is crystal clear what it was to me…the Law of Attraction unfolding before us! SIMPLY AMAZING!

Paying it forward! Teaching my kids at Portuguese School how to create their own Vision Boards!!! They LOVED it!!!

As for the star report, most of you have probably seen the shows as they have aired but for those who did not, we rubbed elbows with Tom Cruise, Beyonce, Usher, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Queen Latifah, Michael Jordan, Steadman, Gail, Jamie Fox, Josh Grobin, Maya Angelou, Alicia Keyes, Halle Barry, Jerry Seinfeld, Tom Hanks, Madonna, Dr. Oz, Nate Berkus, Maria Shriver, Dakota Fanning, Will Smith, Rosie O’Donnell, Patti LaBelle, Diane Sawyer, etc. Seriously it was surreal and soooooo amazing! What was even more amazing was that I felt totally at ease around everyone. Sure I did the cuckoo, freak-out dance when I first saw Madonna but once I got into the groove it was totally effortless. I just SOAKED IT ALL IN!!! :)!!

This was after Oprah saw all the videos including mine! YAY!

We hardly slept that night either! We had “dinner” at 3:30am and a few hours later had to take an early morning flight back to Boston. It was AWESOME! (funny sidenote: I used to be a flight attendant and for some reason when I walk down the aisles there is almost always someone who asks me for a drink or what time we land. It does not even matter what I’m wearing. Must be “the walk” 😉 )

Leading up to May 23 there were lots and lots of commercials on ABC for the WCVB- Channel 5 piece that would run right after The Oprah Show. We were on at least once an hour on every show including The View, Ellen DeGeneres, etc.! It was completely surreal! My friend Linda was watching the Spider Man movie late one night and suddenly she sees my face on TV. She said it took her a while for it to soak in. She felt like she was in a TWILIGHT ZONE episode! 😉

Beck y was also in the segment I was in...

Now this whole time (for the last 8 weeks, in fact) I have had no real access to emails so unless you are a friend on FB, I cannot let even you know that I’m going to be on Oprah!!!! It cut my communication WAY down! I felt like a wanted to share my joy with everyone but that I could not. At this time reporters were emailing me and I had no way of knowing it. It was totally about SURRENDER. It is not something I can do easily…It is something I am learning to do because I see the benefit of it…most times 😉

I cannot say even know that I’m completely BACK INTO MY BODY. This is such an AWESOME experience that is still unfolding. Someone called Doug the other day and told him they heard my voice on HOWARD STERN!!! They played my voice from the Oprah Show about Sophia! Now tell the universe does not have a sense of humor!!!! ;)!

Thanks everyone who came for sharing in this very special moment! Soooo sweet!

People asked if they could come over for the taping and if you asked you got invited. A wonderful group showed up from all different parts of my life. It was wonderful to see! During the actual viewing I realized YET ANOTHER MIRACLE had happened. There were about 10 ULTIMATE VIEWERS that were featured on the two shows we sat in on. We taped for about 6 hours and the shows have to less than 2 hours to allow for commercials. They had to CUT OUT A WHOLE LOT! The result is that more than half of the people who went, even one woman who flew all the way from Afghanistan , were completely cut out of the TV portion of the program! They cut the woman before me, the beautiful Tamika, but they INCLUDED ME! I was actually the first person. Sooooooooo amazing! Yet another gift from our beautiful Sophia!

Because of this experience I am filled with a new energy. I know I am also born to be a teacher. I am offering workshops to help YOU get to your goals or even find those goals. They are affordable and fun! I invite you to come play with me and some of the other ButterflyMoms! Simply sign up here… www.butterflymoms.com/workshops.html.

I am deeply grateful and deeply humble by all the LOVE LOVE  LOVE!

Great big hugs,

Maariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

MY OPRAH DREAM REALIZED…PART 1

Dearest Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

Lots going on….

First, our new website is up so check it out and pass it to your friends… www.butterflymoms.com.

Second, we are in the FRONT PAGE of today’s MetroWest Daily News in a very nicely written article by reporter Kendall Hatch: http://www.metrowestdailynews.com/features/x1078553938/O-what-a-feeling-Holliston-woman-featured-on-Oprah

Third, being interviewed by WCVB (ABC) today at 1:30pm. :)!

Now onto today’s blog….BELIEVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WOW! WOW! WOW! I have just read the first paragraph of my last blog on May 13 just seven days ago. I have lived a whole lifetime in these last seven days! I’m bringing lots and lots of BREATHE REMINDERS to today’s blog because it is surreal in many ways how this has all happened and putting it on words, well, I don’t know if I can turn something so AMAZING into linear thought, quite honestly!!! :)! I’m in a world right now where my whole energy level has shifted. The dream I had for 20 YEARS!!!!, that of being on The Oprah Show, finally came true in the grandest of scales!! I am in a state of awe, shock, gratitude, disbelief, amazement….you get the idea! Every time I think I’ve “identified” a feeling it shifts to something else. I am a wave of emotions!

I also feel like this experience has opened me up into a whole new level of being. If I had to describe it I would describe it as my soul just expanded. My energy feels bigger. It is a magnificent feeling!  Yesterday as I worked the counter of our family’s dry cleaning business, I could feel how I was igniting the souls of the people who walked in. It felt AMAZING! I know that is my life’s calling and whether I do it on a stage or one-on-one it feels like total alignment of my soul when I’m doing this. To see people’s faces and energy dramatically shift in a short time leaves me feeling incredibly grateful and joyous! I sometimes even jump up and down and clap my hands kind of happy!

For those who need an update I will give you the quick rundown.

Last Thursday, May 12 would have been Sophia’s 6th birthday. The Oprah Show had only 3 shows left. Every actor, musician, therapist, author’s PR people were doing anything and everything to get their clients on the show. I used to do PR I know how that goes. I had been trying to get on for 20 years, people so I knew that if it was going to happen I simply needed to completely surrender because it was out of my hands. All I could control was my ENERGY ATTITUDE. I let go again of my expectation and embraced gratitude. I sent a final email from my heart to the producer I had been working with letting him know it was Sophia’s birthday and thanking him for answering my original email, working with me throughout the year and giving me soooo much hope!

Friday, May 13, write my ButterflyMoms blog to the reception of one of the highest number of readers ever. Same day a new producer calls me an interviews me. About five more calls that day. I’m asked if I can fly out to Chicago for an interview or have a crew come here. (I hope for them to fly me out but am open to whatever comes.) They call me back and say someone is flying out to film me, “Are you free at noon?” After a few phone calls I was 😉

Me and the Oprah Show camera crew who came to our house in HollistonWhat a wonderful day!

Saturday, May 14 the producer Alex flew directly from Harpo Studios to Providence with not even enough time to change his clothes. He was interviewed someone in Providence at 8am and came to my house at noon. He brought two cameramen and one sound guy extraordinaire. Of course one of them was Portuguese from São Miguel.  😉 (love how the universe works!) Alex says it might not even air. They have to still approve the content. They film for 2.5 hours and leave. I’m thankful for the whole experience and that my kids get to see what a production team looks like. It is a beautiful sunny day.

You KNOW when things get too serious I have to collaborate fun... 🙂

Sunday, May 15 it’s a rainy day.  Finish an open house on a new listing. Get lots of interest and two offers above asking. Doug finished his open house at the same time so since we had a babysitter we met at Bertucci’s for a quick lunch. Alex calls. They loved film and will use it. Yay!!! And they have two tickets for me if I’d like to come to Chicago for the final taping? It hits me that I’m not only going to be ON the Oprah Winfrey Show but that it’s going to be one of the very last shows!!!! Suddenly Sophia feels very, very, very close to me! I KNOW this is a gift from her! I’m having the same out-of-body experience I had when she died but this time it’s oh-so-joyous!!!! WHAT A GIFT!!!!! One snafu… They cannot pay for the flight because their budget is shot but will pay for hotel and food. It’s been a rough couple of years for us financially but I know that if I’ve come this far nothing is going to stop me so I reached out to my class (I’m in my second year of Energy Medicine School) and asked if they had any frequent flyer miles. To my heartfelt joy, my classmates got together and chipped in to buy us our airplane tickets!!! AMAZING! (Learning to receive is SUCH a huge part of all this.) My friend Karen Knight-Detering sprung into action as one of my many fairy godmothers who appeared. Karen  offered to drive me to airport, take care of my Mia and called our wonderful hairdresser Meredith from Willow Salon for an emergency appointment. Meredith opened up the salon for just me at 6am on a Monday (day they are normally closed) right before she got her root canal! AMAZING! Thanks for my mom for watching my two youngest just days after surgery. Thank you Vicki, Raquel, Heather, Arden, Gregg, Alex, Andy, Alberto, Sandy, Linda, Doug, Nancy, Karen, Meredith, my class at the Rhys Thomas Institute for Energy Medicine and everyone else who had a hand in me going to Chicago!

Mateus and Tia Milu :)! LOVEFEST!!

CUTIE PIE 1 and CUTIE PIE 2 🙂

Monday, May 16 Within 24 hours we were in Chicago and getting debriefed on what to wear and some of the basics. My brother Pedro meets me because he now lives in Chicago. He brings his son Mateus who is a total cutie pie! What a total treat it is to play with him! I hardly sleep that night knowing what’s coming!

Amazing vibration when you have 13,000 people around you who are sooo thankful to be there!

Tuesday, May 17  It’s the big day. Trying to stay in my body. I get up SUPER early. Can’t sleep. Too excited! Spend lots of time answering people’s questions. My email is still sporadic and my computer still not working right so I’m hobbling along technologically speaking. I chant and meditate to calm down. I do Reiki to calm down. The fear/worry wants to come in. When this happens I want to start controlling things. I am observing as if I’m outside my body. I’m shifting and I don’t know what I’m feeling from one moment to the next. We go for a walk. The air feels great. It’s a little past three and we meet downstairs for our limo bus with the other ULTIMATE VIEWERS who will be featured on the show. As we start heading towards the United Center, we start getting more details. There was a lot of secrecy prior to this point.

My VIP Badge which gave me the access to my dreams! PRICELESS!

Danielle one of Oprah's stylists...amazing!

One of The Oprah Show's make-up artists Robert. He is FANTASTIC and phenomenal at what he does! WOW!

The representative tells us that it’s going to be two shows instead of one with over 30 stars and lots of surprises. Still not sinking in. We are told we will be there until around 11….ended up being more like 1am!!! 😉 When we get there we come in through the security entrance that all the stars take. It was AMAZING! Incredible energy. Everyone was EXTREMELY grateful to be there!  A “funny” thing happened where I heard a Madonna song and danced over to see what was going on and there was Madonna standing there practicing her part of the show! I wish I could tell you I acted cool but I did not! That is the first of many stars I would see and mingle with that night! People ask if I met Oprah.

Tamika and Carrie incredible women with heart-opening stories!

One of the many times Oprah walked next to me this time with Jerry Seinfeld and Jaime Foxx. Surreal!!!

Very Grateful to Be Able to Share this AMAZING experience with Doug!

 

 

 

This is not the typical show she does because these two shows were for her. Oprah did not have a microphone during most of the show because she was “receiving” not “giving”. She sat four people away from me and passed by me all night long because they kept moving her (she wore heels and by the end of the night you could tell her feet were “barking” – after 12 hours of dancing and standing in heels mine were too!!!!)

Front Row Seating to Oprah in an Audience of 13,0000!!!

We had VIP seating and I sat behind Stedman and Gail for a part of the first show. Cameras were not allowed but I did sneak in my phone and so did a lot of people. After a while everyone was taking photos. It was hard though because the phone does not have zoom. This place WAS MASSIVE! I’m going to have to make this a two part blog because it’s getting too long. There is lots and lots still to talk about!

Make sure you watch THE OPRAH SHOW, Monday, MAY 23 on ABC! I’m in a video in the first few minutes and you will probably see me again in the audience shots because the camera crews were all over us!

I am deeply grateful and deeply humble by that LOVE!

Great big hugs,

Maariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

OPRAH UPDATE…One, Six and Thirteen!

 

 

Dearest Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

First, an Oprah update. The producer called again this past week and there was renewed hope that I would be on one of the last shows. He even had us get Sophia’s birth and death certificate to send to him just in case he could do something but that did not pan out. It is sad but at least I put myself out there and there are many more adventures I cannot even imagine coming my way! I’m excited! Thanks for coming on that journey with me!

Just finished a Goddess Weekend that was out of this world! It was at this retreat last year that I started writing ButterflyMoms on a consistent basis. So HAPPY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY BUTTERFLYMOMS!!!

The retreat got me thinking that we can all use a little time away to re-group and re-energize soooooo….(trumpets please)…… We are scheduling our first ButterflyMoms Retreat the weekend of October 22, 2011 in Mad River Vermont at a magical inn! We are still working on the details but space will be limited so if you are at all interested let me know. Carving out the time for our highest good is the best thing we can do for ourselves! :)!

I ask you to take a DEEP, DEEP BREATH with me as I enter into today’s blog…

Sophia and Me at her first birthday party

I never know how I’m going to be on May12 and June 22. Those are my Sophia’s birthday and deathday.

Sometimes sooooooooooooooooo much emotion wants to come out that I’m afraid those around me cannot handle it. Quite honestly most of my grieving has been alone…or SWALLOWING MY GRIEF because of this fear that others cannot handle it. Some of the work I’ve been doing at the Rhys Thomas Energy Medicine School, especially lately, has allowed me to open/release some of that energy, some very powerful stuff!

It’s hard, you know, to talk to others about the birth and death of your baby because if that other person REALLY went “THERE” with you it…well, I can’t say I honestly know what would happen, but it’s a lot of pain and in a way I guess I protect others from it because then I think I need to save them from it. I don’t know if I’m making sense to you but this is how I feel. There is soooo much magic that has come from her death but I would give it all up to have Sophia back in my arms. I don’t know if that is the PC thing to say but that is how MY HEART FEELS. I miss her sooooooooooooooooo much, our Sophalicious. I have had many, many people die in this lifetime, losing your baby is TOTALLY a different feeling. It is that type of grief that can knock the wind out of my sails and because I have so many responsibilities I cannot crawl into bed and stay there so I activate AUTOMATIC PILOT, put on a smiley face and go off into my day.  I KNOW I’m not the only one! Sometime I do it so automatically, in fact, that I don’t know that I’ve ACTIVATED it. I NOTICE that when I do this I take a VERY DEEP BREATH and then probably don’t exhale for the rest of the day. That is how I perceive it.

Grieving, for me, is this endless circle of wanting to get to HIGHER GROUND, to being as “ok” with Sophia’s death as I can be and then being hit by a Tsunami of pain, never knowing who you are going to be in front of when it happens.

At Sophia's Christening with Parents, Siblings and God Parents... Sooo much LOVE!

esterday would have been Sophia’s 6th birthday. She died at 13 months so it’s fitting that I’m writing this on Friday the 13th…. BTW, found out that Friday the 13th is a VERY POWERFUL GODDESS DAY…When  the Roman Catholic Church was trying to take over, they made it a bad luck day instead. I, for one am reclaiming the magic of Friday the 13th!!! Who’s with me? 😉

Today’s blog is just pouring out of me and I’m not stopping it. It has REALLY wanted to come out. The word that keeps coming up around yesterday is HUMBLE, HUMBLE, HUMBLE.

I was COMPLETELY blown away by the outpouring of LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that our family received yesterday!  We had more than 200 people (I can’t even believe I’m typing that number!!!) reach out via email, phone, text, voicemail, facebook and even a handful of  in person visits from dear friends who seemed to really be holding a space of LOVE for the day as I had requested on FB. This may surprise you writing how I do but I usually don’t open myself up to get the love BECAUSE TO OPEN TO THE LOVE, YOU HAVE TO BE OPEN TO THE PAIN. I was more vulnerable yesterday than I have been in a long time and that is why I was able to ASK for what I needed. I asked for others to hold us in LOVE…and I highly suggest it because it felt wonderful! Like floating, really if you let yourself go….there is a downside though that is ALSO important to know about…. WARNING: When that happens SHIT that has been in your life’s “basement” comes up….and baby that shit stinks! It was soooo powerful that it rocked my marriage. We had to work some things out. Key is to go with the flow, stay open, stay authentic and for goodness sakes KEEP MOVING FORWARD (but in a BEING PRESENT WAY)!!!

A very special thank you to all those who reached out yesterday. YOU deeply help me and my family heal a bit more. I was going to try to list everyone’s name here but if I forgot someone that would not do. I would invite you to go to my Facebook page and read all the magnificent comments from around the world. It is a magnificent example of SHEER LOVE!!! I am deeply grateful and deeply humble by that LOVE!

Great big hugs,

Maariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

STRIPPING YOURSELF ON MOTHER’S DAY!

Dearest Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

Sometimes it seems that life is stripping you raw. No matter what you try, things that are a deep part of our life fall apart, go “wrong”, break, and/or simply disappear. I have noticed patterns in my life where this happens. I’m in one of those very patterns. It started with my son Christopher accidently spilling water next to my computer. As that glass of water fell, my life’s trajectory shifted into a new direction and I entered into the LAND OF YOU-ARE-ABOUT-TO-LOSE-A-WHOLE-BUNCH-OF –VERY –IMPORTANT-DATA-AND-SPEND-A-LOT-OF-MONEY-AND-TIME-HOPELESSLY-TRYING-TO-FIX-IT! After three weeks of trying to recover it, my hard drive is being flown to Wisconsin to see if they can recover my original mother board (how appropriate with Mother’s Day this weekend). The computer I bought less than 2 weeks ago had a corrupt operating system and I spent a large part of yesterday at Apple with the technicians, talking to my computer guy, looking for files…..Believe I COULD go on and on around this but let’s move to a bird’s eye view of the situation, shall we.

It is PRETTY obvious that I’m being STRIPPED RAW of my technology. I can get into my head very easily. I know I’m doing this because I get into those LIFE MODELS of “WORK-CHORES-KIDS-TV-SLEEP” (not in that order). I carve out very little time to hang out with friends or to read or anything like that. As much as I dislike to admit it, my GREAT TRANQUILIZER is my television and BOY DO I USE IT TO MEDICATE myself. Sure it’s entertaining but when you are lacking sleep and you choose TV over sleep like I do almost EVERY night I know there is an issue. I know I could spend my time more wisely. I know my life would shift in ways I have been dreaming about. (DEEP BREATH HERE)

This is one of those BRIDGE POINTS in life where you begin to SEE what the issue is and then you add CHOICE. Sure I can HIDE from my CHOICE but that is not, not making a CHOICE. As the double negative shows here in this sentence, we cannot be NEUTRAL. Life NEVER stops flowing. Sometimes we want to stop it and say NO but life keeps on flowin’ and the same way you cannot stop the ocean, you cannot stop this rhythm of life so what to do?

Key here is to, as my good friend Keith has been reminding me for the last couple of years, “SURRENDER”. Surrender the fight! Whatever you FIGHT grows. PICTURE that and then take a moment to FEEL it in your body. If your child does not do what you want and you begin to YELL does that make the situation any better really? If you lower your voice and speak to that child does it shift things in a different direction without the ICKIES? If you find yourself in NOT TAKING CARE OF ME MODE is fighting with yourself about how you SHOULD going to help you?

This Mother’s Day consciously TAKE OFF your boxing gloves, STRIP YOURSELF RAW, knowing that you are always safe. As the beautiful Carolyn Myss and Wayne Dyer both say, it is an illusion that we control anything really. We have the power of CHOICE, like WHAT TO FOCUS ON, but the big stuff is out of our hands so instead of STRESSING OUT your whole ride, why not let go and ENJOY IT?

FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY EVER-GROWING HEART…..HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY!!!!

Great big hugs,

Maariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

William and Kate…Missing Princess Diana!

Dearest Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

Ok, so normally I wake up Fridays at 4am-ish to write write ButterflyMoms. I started to write it this a.m. but the royal wedding was just too big for me to miss. My apologies for not getting it to you earlier! Here we go…

Simply put, today’s royal wedding is the accomplishment of a dream a beautiful woman, one who never even got to attend the wedding. I mean, the big-hearted Princess Diana who was tragically killed in the prime of life.

Most little girls dream of growing up to be a princess who finds her prince. Diana had this dream. Her fairytale was more of a nightmare. When she died, a little bit of the fairytale died in all of us too. Her prince was in love with someone else and only married her to get heirs. Diana wanted the fairytale! She had a BIG heart and she wanted to use it! She did on her boys! You can completely see how her influence on them, that of LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! You can see it has greatly altered the royal family.

Within a generations they went from having a very cold queen to a warm princess! Queen Elizabeth did not raise her children, nannies did. For Diana, her kids were her LOVE FOUNTAINS! She adored them and she showed it publicly. She also taught them to live life with their heart wide open! This is VERY different from the Queen whose protocol is literally that you cannot touch or even LOOK at her until she looks at you!!! HELLO, WHAT!?

The wedding was viewed by billions of people around the world. Even though this is a very challenging time for England and the world, the ceremony had the energy of hope, approachability, simplicity and love. It is the legacy of LOVE left by a mother who never got to see her boys grow up.

I really missed Diana today, although I could feel her energy EVERYWHERE!

Great big hugs,

Maariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

CALL YOUR ENERGY BACK

Dear Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

Last week I shattered my cell phone’s screen so that every time I call some one now I get very small papercuts on my fingers and ears. 😉 Two hundred dollars to get it fixed is the best option but there are complications ( I will not bore you with here but suffice it to say that they cannot download the information on my cell phone -except for contacts- unless I personally do it on my computer. Well, this week, my 15 year old son Christopher spilled water next to my laptop which killed the motherboard. It will not even turn on……(deep breaths – maybe more for me than for you 😉 ).

I find myself WANTING to find BLAME. I saw the whole thing and there was none, really in this situation. It was an accident. I OBSERVED in my life how quickly I switch to blame. HE DID THIS. SHE DID THAT. THOSE ASSHOLES!!! (didn’t think you’d be seeing that word here today did ya now? SURPRISE!!! 😉 )

Since today is Earth Day let’s talk about ENERGY…YOURS! 😉  Do you know what happens when you BLAME? You are literaly setting up an energy mortgage that you pay out to them EVERY time you think about that person or situation. For example, if you don’t like your boss or work, EVERY time you think about it, you PAY THEM from YOUR VERY OWN ENERGY BANK. Most of us think we are JUST thinking but HOW DO YOU FEEL when you do this? Do you feel full of energy or drained? Feelings are INCREDIBLE FEEDBACK mechanisms that many people ignore. It would be the same thing as if when you drove you decided to ignore EVERY SIGN you came across. What would happen? What if EVERYONE did that? That is basically what is happening all over this planet. We are colliding into each other because we are not paying any attention to the signs. I can help you see them! YES I CAN!!! :)!!!

Most of us pay these ENERGY MORTGAGES to many, many, many, many people and events. AWARENESS is the KEY here! JUDGING is what most people do but that will only get you “STUCKER-ER”!!! OBSERVE INSTEAD. NOTICE how ICKY it FEELS to GIVE AWAY YOUR PRECIOUS ENERGY to things that do not matter to you. If you had a garden it would be like you give all your water and fertilizer to the weeds and let the flowers and veggies die. Seems SILLY but how many times in one hour do you do it…..GOODNESS no wonder we are all tired!!!!

We are at a CRITICAL time on EARTH! It is an AWESOME time to be alive (even though for most of us it does not feel like that often – but that is because you are giving your energy to the weeds, dammit!!! ;)!!! To call your energy back is soooooooo easy you might miss it so pay extra close attention… Simply image that every time you have a negative, blame, hate, worry THOUGHT about someone IMAGINE an invisible cord forms between you and her and that is how your energy leaves. Simply imagine cutting that cord, releasing that person with as much love as you can muster and feeling the energy come back to you. Sometimes you need to do it several (million) times but if you do this every time you notice instead of INVESTING in “judging” or “blaming” you will start seeing a noticeable difference in your life.

What difference? To get WAY COOL experiences on this planet you need to have a certain amount of energy. For example, scoring that killer parking spot only mostly happens when you have enough energy to PAY for that experience. I have found that since I’ve started doing this work I get cooler and cooler experiences. Life is not perfect but it is imperfectly perfect for me! 🙂

There is no better day to start calling your energy back than today…April 22, 2011 EARTH DAY!!!! Let EARTH’s healing BEGIN with you dear ButterflyMoms!

At Ernest Hemingway's house in Key West last year at my beautiful niece Emily's wedding 🙂

This is something that works great if you share it with others. Share ButterflyMoms with your friends. We have a whole planet of humans to help shift their energy BACK to themselves! It started with you reading this blog today! YAY! Now pass it forward… www.butterflymoms.com

HAPPY EARTH DAY Y’ALL!!!!

Great big hugs,

Maariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

THE LAND of ONE DAY I’LL GET to “IT”….

Happy Friday Morning Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH MORNING. What is the weather “BEING” where you are? (we always say doing but really the weather is simply being and that is an AWESOME reminder to us, right?) For me after a BITTER cold and snowy winter today promises to be a perfect spring day. The joy of the “singing” birds outside my window tell me that it is so. 🙂 There is a sound I have not heard for a LONG time and it feels wonderful. I HIGHLY suggest that ANY time you have the opportunity to CONNECT with nature, DO IT!!! DO IT!!! DO IT!!

Sooooooo, this morning I am struck by two very different worlds. Every Friday morning I CARVE out the time to write our beloved ButterflyMoms blog. It is effortless, fun and exciting. What is NOT effortless, fun and exciting is the other, growing world AROUND the time I have carved for ButterflyMoms for in that space lives THE LAND of ONE DAY I’LL GET TO IT!!

This is the Land where we stockpile lots of emails, tasks and dreams that we have EVERY INTENTION of doing but just because of the sheer volume we would have to live 527,000 years to get to every project, belated birthday card, friend we mean to visit, item we need to return, recipe we want to try, museum we want to see, trip we want to take, email that begs for a response…..On this Planet Earth adventure we have the limit of time. The society at large thinks that is the worst thing and tries to give us tips on how to CRAM IN MORE. I’m here to tell you to GIVE YOURSELF the FREEDOM to DUMP the hope of ever getting to that list, instead give yourself 15 GOLDEN MINUTES and write down the TOP JUICY things you want to do and DO THOSE FIRST. Most of us are soooooo flooded in our lives that we oftentimes do the HAVE TOs/MUNDANE CRAP (efforting EVERY STEP of the way) instead of FLOWING with the items on our TO DO LIST THAT WE LOVE…. OR AT THE VERY LEAST LIKE! THE BEST FORMULA FOR YOUR TO DO LIST is do the thing you LOVE FIRST, Things you LIKE SECOND and things you TOLERATE THIRD. Most of us do it the other way around and then….well, most of us simply run out of time.

DEEP BREATH HERE TO CLEAR THE ICKIES. REMEMER TO STAY IN WHAT YOU ARE FEELING RIGHT NOW AND NOT HAVE TO FIX IT. BREATHE……………..FEELS GOOD TO JUST BE! 🙂

ROCK ON BUTTERFLYMOMS!!!!!!!!!!! EMBRACE THE GRACE!!!

Great big hugs,

Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

WILL YOU GET A KIND JUDGE?

Happy Friday Morning Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

So last week I asked that if you read this blog to leave a sign that you were here, whether it be to leave a comment, hit the “like” button at the bottom or rate it at the top. A few more than usual spoke out, some for the first time but most, more than 90%, quietly read and then went on with their day. There is no “good” or “bad” here just an observation. I observe the same thing in our society at large. It might be that people feel sooooooooooo overwhelmed that they simply move into WATCHING mode instead of fully participating in life. Maybe it is because most of us watch so much TV that we have been CONDITIONED to simply “observe” the world and process in our minds. In our minds we think of things to do but then we quickly add them to our MENTAL TO DO LIST where we all know most things honestly disappear forever. We remember it every once in a while but only just enough to produce more guilt and anxiety to add to our lives for not having yet done anything about the situation. DEEP BREATH HERE TO CLEAR THE ICKIES. REMEMER TO STAY IN WHAT YOU ARE FEELING RIGHT NOW AND NOT HAVE TO FIX IT. BREATHE……………..FEELS GOOD TO JUST BE! 🙂

Life was meant to live in the RIGHT NOW. Just like most things worth doing, like WALKING and TALKING, they did not come overnight, no matter who you are. They took time and the right environment for you to be able to accomplish these abilities. Now that I have these abilities I oftentimes forget what a gift they are. It’s on to the next thing…our lives become a trail of all this magical things for which we slowly lose the gratitude over time. Our kids are a PERFECT mirror of that. Kids are bombarded with things without being given the gifts of striving, gratefulness, appreciation…. Many times I hear parents blaming the children, “You don’t appreciate anything you have. You just throw everything all over the place and keep asking for more.” WE, THE PARENTS, are creating this environment for our kids. If they were a caterpillar in a cocoon they would be the caterpillars whose parents cut them out because they could not bear to see their dear child “suffer” and then hired a tutor or trainer to work out their offspring’s issues. 😉 The number of kids with IEPs (individual educational plans) are staggering. Again, this is not a blame game it is an observation, a check in to see if this is where we want to be, might not or it might be. It is only with checking in with life that we can bring the AWARENESS we need to shift our lives. This week I wish you THE GIFT OF AWARENESS WITH DETACHED JUDGEMENT….play with that this week for yourself and others.

ROCK ON BUTTERFLYMOMS!!!!!!!!!!!

Great big hugs,

Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

FLYING BELOW THE RADAR ARE WE DEARHEART?

Happy, Happy, Happy Friday Morning Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

You have all been very quiet over the last few weeks. I wonder what is brewing… I sincerely ask that if you read this blog to acknowledge your presence EACH TIME by leaving a comment, hitting the like button or rating it. I know a lot of ButterflyMoms come and read the blog every week but they don’t SHOW THEMSELVES.

That gets me thinking…where else in your life do you not show yourself. While I was getting my MBA (back in the 1900’s) 😉 I learned that most women do this type of behavior a lot. I like to call it FLYING UNDER THE RADAR.

GIRL! If you are going to bother flying then make sure it’s WAY above the radar! LET THEM KNOW YOU ARE HERE AND THAT YOU ARE READY FOR ALL THE WONDERFUL ADVENTURES LIFE HAS IN STORE! Send the universe a message through your actions that you want a life that is worthy of being seen.

I can feel your jaw clench and your breath almost stop as you read these words. Take heart, dearheart. You are safe. FEEL THAT STATEMENT. Take a deep deep breath and feel, “I AM SAFE. I AM SOOO SAFE. BECAUSE I AM SAFE I AM FREE TO EXPERIENCE ALL OF LIFE.” Nothing can happen to you today that is not meant for your best and highest good. We know they are all lessons. This is the Earth School after all! There are sooooooo many spirits who would LOVE to be able to be here on Planet Earth to play but they are not here, YOU ARE! It is SUCH a COOL EXPERIENCE! Look down at your hands. Move them. Turn them. Wiggle your fingers. Feel your skin. Feel the bones under your skin. You are made from the same magical material as makes up the stars. Savor the experience. Most people go through life FORGETTING how VERY COOL THIS EXPERIENCE can be with one critical ingredient….GRATITUDE FOR BEING HERE!

I am grateful for you! Are you grateful for you?

ROCK ON BUTTERFLYMOMS!!!!!!!!!!!

Great big hugs,

Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

🙂

PS  I was getting a lot of energy around the word DEARHEART which I used above so I looked it up in the Urban Dictionary online and here is it’s amazing definition…

dearheart
an affectionate soubriquet for the person that has woken your heart and dispelled your misgivings about the world at large

PPS Want to manifest cool things in your life?…I do! That is why I organized this very wonderful workshop. Check it out…

Which Glasses Did You CHOOSE This Morning?

Happy Friday Morning Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

Am I the only one noticing a rather large amount of UNUSUAL events going on around us? Each day we get up we put on our “glasses”, sometimes we put on rose-colored glasses, other times the ones that see everything is unfair. There is an endless option of glasses to choose from. The interesting thing is that most of us don’t even CONSCIOUSLY remember that we have that choice. We just let our brains, luck, whatever side of the bed we woke up on, determine how we CHOOSE TO SEE OUR DAY. How we see our day determines what information we filter in, and what information we filter out. A bunch of these days strung together equal a “phase” in our life and a bunch of phases equals a lifetime.

What are you doing with YOUR lifetime? I know it’s no shock to you but even if a doctor has told you, you only have ____________ moments left to live, NONE OF US REALLY KNOWS how long we have left. It could be short or it could be long. How have you been doing with the moments you have? How have the glasses you have chosen to put on in your morning affected your life’s direction? Be kind with your answer. This does not mean lie to yourself or sugar-coat, rather it means to be honest and gentle.

This human being thing is not as easy as it may seem. There is a whole lotta pain and hardship on this planet, a whole lot. Seems like if you look at what is going on there are some cataclysmic events going on all over the world happening VERY CLOSE to each other. There is definitely a MAJOR SHIFT afoot! You don’t have to be psychic to see that! What will you do with that information? Will it close or open you?

I find that everything that is COMING AT ME in life is a lot easier to process if I’m in a frame of mind of being kind and gentle with how I’m doing. If I make an “icky” choice I get both “good” and “bad” consequences, but if I’m kind and gentle with myself I get to MOVE ON from the experience. On the other hand if I judge and punish my choice then part of the “bonus” with this option is that I get stuck in that one choice. I get to replay it over and over and over again. Seems silly when I CALL IT OUT like this doesn’t it? I don’t know why I do this but awareness brings light to the situation. With the glasses I just realized I could put on (instead of the ones that automatically put on without thinking) I see this lesson. It is time to stop and LET GO, for without LETTING GO I don’t have SPACE TO EMBRACE all the MAGIC, ADVENTURES and LOVE of our ABUNDANT UNIVERSE!!! OK ABUNDANCE COME AND GET ME! I’ve decided to stop playing hard to get! 😉 How about you? 😉

ROCK ON BUTTERFLYMOMS!!!!!!!!!!!

Great big hugs,

Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

The Beautiful Maria Amelia...What an Incredible Soul!

PS Today’s ButterflyMoms is dedicated to the BEAUTIFUL people of Portugal, the land of my birth and of my ancestors. There is some heavy-duty financial instability, the prime minister literally quit yesterday and the government is on the verge of collapsing. A special love prayer goes out to my beautiful Aunt Maria Amelia who has worked hard all her life and now lives on a pension that is so ridiculously low that even though the cost of living is basically the same as here in the States, you could not pay your monthly phone bill with how little she lives on. My heart goes out to her and the other amazing people of Portugal.  I ask you for your prayers and good vibrations. May our good energy bring them much solace!
