heart attack symptoms Heart attack woman HAPPY MONDAY! Did you know that most heart attacks happen on Monday mornings?…(take a deep breath).

Worked well for me.You should be able to talk with a human being, including a licensed pharmacist, to answer questions about your prescription.

The reason this happens is because of stress. STRESS is not a “real” thing in the sense that you can touch or point to it, but its effects are real. STRESS is a result of FOCUSING on what is NOT WORKING… on what is WRONG. When you are on that ‘channel’ you see everything that is going wrong. Because of those thoughts your energy levels start calling more energy to come down to move you into FLIGHT or FIGHT. It happens on many levels including energetic, mental and physical. When you keep ACTIVATING that over and over again… it’s like reeving your car’s engine over and over again. After a while, your car starts to wear down. Sometimes we do it so often that it becomes a habit.


Heart Attack SignsI used to be one of those people who said that meditation was not for me. I always laughed off that sitting down for that long was too tough for someone like me who was always on the go…. Our society loves people on the go! Busy! Busy! Busy! More! More! More! This type of living feeds into the building of STRESS. Best thing to do is notice. Shift your habits. Do less, a lot less. Less TV. Give stuff away. Sell stuff. Buy less. Eat less non-food. Less connecting with machines. Let go of unfinished projects. Spend more time sleeping… yup, I said it. Sleep more. More quiet time. More time in nature. More drinking water. More locally grown. More connecting with people. More walking barefoot, especially outside.

THANK YOU for reading today’s 30 SECOND MINI-COACHING session… Comment below…Share with heart friends because it spreads the love! Remember what you are seeking is seeking you!

Great big hugs,

teacher on the boardHAPPY FRIDAY!!!!! If you are reading this you have been gifted with yet another day on planet earth! How painful…if you let it be! – or- How wonderful…if you let it be!

Today's 30 SECOND MINI-COACHING SESSION is a gentle reminder that sometimes life can be a cruel teacher if you don't set your expectations. She gives the test first and then the lesson. This is only a problem if you are expecting the opposite. So many people fight life. Don't know if that is you or not? Well if life feels like a struggle than you are definitely fighting life! You are living in THE LAND OF SHOULD, constantly comparing and judging your life to what “should be”. Notice and set yourself free. Don't know how? Come here every day to learn how. YOU GOT THIS!

PUT THIS TO DO ON YOUR CALENDAR!!!! Do you eat every day? So why not come to and feed your life the things it needs to be happy! See you tomorrow! Today, leave your comments below!

Great big hugs,



HAPPY THURSDAY! Today's 30 SECOND MINI-COACHING SESSION is all about GRATITUDE and fits whether you are at work or home!

ebenezer before and afterIt has become very popular to say we “should” be grateful but most people don't take that extra step to FEEL the gratitude like Ebenezer Scrooge, the principal character in Charles Dickens's 1843 novel, A CHRISTMAS CAROL felt when after all three ghosts visited him…. By getting his AHA he entered into a different vibration of existence. You could literally see the change in the way he looked and moved in the world. The “transformation” is complete and instant!

All it really took was STOPPING and NOTICING!


what am I grateful for today?Step 1: Ask yourself: “WHAT AM I THANKFUL FOR?”

Step 2: Allow yourself the space (no matter how much noise and confusion is going on around you) to FEEL the question. Watch your breath change and your shoulders drop.

Step 3: Let yourself be carried away into the happy feelings that arise. Again you will notice your breathing more deeply and smiling by default.

Step 4: Wrap yourself in that amazing energy/vibration/feeling and let it stay with you for the rest of the day. If it starts to 'wear-off' simply repeat the exercise because it only takes a few moments to enter bliss.

Advertisers will sell you lotions and potions to help you have the life you dreamed…. BUT all that has done is liter and pollute our planet. As we stop the madness and awaken we will turn more and more to simple things like asking “WHAT AM I GRATEFUL FOR?” and find if allow ourselves to let go…we are starting to TRULY LIVE many times for the first time in a long time!

Take a moment and share below what you are THANKFUL FOR.

fearDearest Butterfly Moms,

Today is a very big day! For over four years I've written the ButterflyMoms blog EVERY FRIDAY no matter what! It's been an amazing developmental journey! The BUTTERFLY MOMS blog even attracted the attention of one of the most powerful women on the planet, OPRAH WINFREY, and I became one of the very last guests on THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW… Today is a new era. I had to conquer my fears to grow it to the next level and here we are… We are switching from just the written blog to the video blog!

!!!!!dreams vs fearsThe very first topic is: FEAR

The question comes from Maria from West Hartford, Connecticut

QUESTION:”What is the block/fear I have with starting my new business? I have 8 years of school, am a natural, love it, peoplelove it, but I haven't turned on the website for my business yet, even though it's ready. How do I overcome this fear of success?

We all face fear every day. Many of us have become it's slave… We might not even realize it because most everyone around us has done the same thing. It is normal to be small, in in-authentic lives that we were trained to live because it's “good for us”.

Today's short video is a wonderful way to give yourself the gift of how to release the ickies fear causes and turn it all around so FEAR IS YOUR TOOL, instead of the other way around!

Here is the link…

As always please leave your comments below! We love hearing fro you!

Great big hugs,


LIVE YOUR DREAMS OUT LOUD!!!!! (not just in your head!) THE WORLD NEEDS YOU!

What if Someone is Prettier Than I Am?

Time for a changeToday’s blog was written with lots of love from beautiful Paço de Arcos, Portugal! It is gift-wrapped with Reiki energy so that whomever reads it gets a wonderful dose! Swim in all that love! Take as much as you need! :)

Dearest BFMs,


This is the third and week we’re doing the VIDEO BLOG! Within the next two weeks we will be moving out out using WordPress and all blogs will be on my own site.  I love love love that you come here every week! Thank you for your support over the last four years. This new phase is very exciting and I am glad you are bearing witness to me coming out of my cocoon into the next level of living my life’s purpose!

Here you go!

As always please comment below… and share with friends because the world needs us all to WAKE UP!

Great big hugs,

ButterflyMoms is a community of people who realize they are souls first and human being second. They want to explore more about themselves, to find out what makes them happy and how they can lead a life of purpose. It is simply about FEEDING YOUR SOUL. Although it has the name “MOMS” in the title it is more about being nurturing to your own transformation, as the butterfly is to its own metamorphosis. This community is led by Maria Salomão-Schmidt whose transformation was ignited by the birth and death of her BELOVED thirteen month old daughter Sophia (Sophalicious), the original butterfly.

*Every Friday Morning, as a way of honoring her daughter Sophia’s soul, Maria has written the weekly BUTTERFLYMOMS BLOG which has of July 2013 also turned into a video blog. Hundreds of people have read it every week to feed their souls. Maria started writing the blog in May 2009 and has written EVERY Friday since. Maria is a Reiki master and every time you read it you are showered with healing love.  Tell your friends… and spread the love!!! FEED YOUR SOUL!!!!!

Use your voice…

I invite you add your comments below about what your dream is and how you can do one thing to move it forward. This whole process is about connection and moving forward.

This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my blog. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)
