What is a LIFE COACH?

Hello Beautiful!

Welcome to the second video blog of this series! Today’s topic is a honor-your-time quick-answer to a question I get all the time…”Oh, so you’re a Life Coach?! Uh, what exactly is a Life Coach?” This short video will clarify it for you.

Today, the world’s most successful people have at least one coach. With great coaches, even just one session makes a HUGE difference! I, myself, have three-five coaches I work with to help me stay on track with my life’s work. I would not be where I am without them! Having a life coach is one of the most important things you can do because it helps you work on the specific things you want to shift and helps keep you ultra accountable. My favorite thing about being a coach is watching the AHAs settle in after a session where my clients are simply in awe of what was right in front of them but had been invisible. It is a magical gift I’ve been given and I love sharing it with the world!

Want to get a ‘taste” of my specific coaching? For just those who are reading this, I have a special for the first 13 people to respond (13 = Sophia so I will go with that number). My normal coaching rate is $155/session. Today I’m offering the first 13 people a quick, affordable way to get unstuck in your life.  Quickie Coaching Session – 15 Minute Shift Session for only $33.

As I said last week, I’m oh-so-delighted to be part of your journey back to the authentic you!!! Your WAKING UP is exactly what the world needs to heal! No matter how bumpy it gets you will love how wonderful it feels to BE YOU in the world! What I know for sure is that I was born to help you get “there”! If you have been struggling and want things to shift here’s a really great solution!  Book your Quickie Coaching Session – 15 Minute Shift Session right now! It will really help! As soon as I get your sign up I will contact you within 24 hours to book a session. <3

In the meantime, continue spreading the LOVE by commenting, liking and sharing this video blog with those you LOVE most! We are creating a perfect storm for a passionate peace to reign in our lives! It cannot happen unless we share what makes our heart sing! Sharing is caring! I look forward to your comments!

Remember: What the world needs most is for you to be YOU!

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

ENERGY HEALING… FINALLY A SIMPLE EXPLANATION!

Hello Beautiful!

I’m oh-so-delighted to be part of your journey back to the authentic you!!! No matter how bumpy it gets you will love how wonderful it feels to BE YOU in the world! What I know for sure is that I was born to help you get “there”!

As I write this blog, I’m at the amazing Newton-Wellesley Hospital in Newton, Massachusetts getting wonderful medical care for my beautiful husband Doug. I did not expect that this is where I would be writing it from but the universe has a “funny” way of “redirecting” us to where we need to be. FIGHTING makes it worse. NOTICING and LOOKING for the GIFTS in the moments, situations and places we find ourselves in gives us the vital FEEDBACK we need to navigate our lives, closer to our hearts.

Some people pooh-pooh western medicine. Some pooh-pooh eastern medicine. Some pooh-pooh energy medicine. There is a place in our big, beautiful world for all kinds of healing, regardless of where it comes from. The key is to be open to whatever is out there. From that place you can hear what path is best for you. Beware of lowering your energy when you JUDGE yourself, or others, in the path they have chosen. Lean into the uncomfortable and see what you find.

Today is the official launch of my video blogs. My goal was to make them short and sweet because I know your time is super valuable.

Today’s topic answers one of the most asked questions I get, “WHAT EXACTLY IS ENERGY HEALING?”

I ask that you continue spreading the LOVE by commenting, liking and sharing this video blog with those you LOVE the most in this world! We are creating a perfect storm for a passionate peace to reign in our lives! It cannot happen unless we share what makes our heart sing! Sharing is caring!

I look forward to your comments and to see how many people give themselves the gift of watching this very first COACH ME MARIA video!

The World Needs You To Be You!

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

PS Every year I do two VERY SPECIAL events called THE HAPPY ME! RETREATs.  The photo above is of the last retreat we did at the Cape. In 2015 they will be even more EXTRA special! I will be holding one in April at Cape Cod, Massachusetts and the other in October in Lisbon, Portugal. Come delight yourself! For more details check out http://coachmemaria.com/events/

PPS Do you like the wacky photo of me on the video of my nose all curled up? Looks like I just smelled a really bad fart or something! 😉 Well, I was going to have the film director change it but then I thought why deprive the world of some really good giggles! Maybe it will make you want to send it out even more! 😉

What if Someone is Prettier Than I Am?

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.

What Can “I LOVE LUCY” Teach You About Energy Work?

Mialotta doing a handstand on the Beach. :) I'm in a cafe sitting in the sun!

Mialotta doing a handstand on the Beach. 🙂 I’m in a cafe sitting in the sun!

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

It has NEVER been MORE IMPORTANT than NOW to CHECK IN ON YOUR LIFE! Most of us bought into the formula of doing things the “right” way, filling out the necessary forms, having the perfect wedding, celebrating our kids’ birthdays with the appropriate birthday parties, visiting the in-laws, attending the neighbor’s bbq, going on the once a year vacation…blah, blah, blah…. Quite frankly, it’s exhausting! Have you realized that all of your “SHOULD”s (things you are supposed to do) are choking the very life out of you!

I love lucy collageIf you’re a fan of the 1950’s American television show, I LOVE LUCY, you might recall a scene from one of the episodes where she and her friend are working in a chocolate factory, which sounds like a wonderful predicament until the conveyer belts starts slowly serving them chocolates from a machine for them to package. The speed builds more and more speed until the two lovable female characters have nowhere else to stick, eat or hide the bon bons that are shooting out of the machine at rocket speed. Life in 2013 is like that for a lot of people. When we were younger, it might have started off slower, thus more manageable, but now it’s shooting the bon bons of life at record speed!

The fact is that so much is coming at us that we our systems get overwhelmed or “flooded”.  Most of us have simply slipped into automatic pilot, where life is numbed out in some way, so we can create an illusion that we are dealing with everything.

I love lucy chocolate factoryAt the writing of this ButterflyMoms blog, it is the year 2013 and the people who run the bohemoth corporations, because their number one goal is financial “profits”, are mindlessly raping and pillaging our beloved planet right in front of our eyes. With those record profits, they are changing and controlling many of the things we do, including even the very essence of our food. Here in Portugal you see it when you take a walk along the marginal (Linha de Cascais). Sadly, our beaches and oceans are full of trash. I am ashamed to share that but it’s true. Although they have public workers who pick it up on a daily basis you still find tons of trash thrown by beach-goers and that comes in from the tides. Our oceans are showing us that they are in trouble. What can each of us do to help? Sit in a quiet spot, ask the question and wait for the response. This is a fabulous exercise to learn how to use and develop your intuition… and start helping our Mother Earth!

 

This is a wonderful wake-up call for us! If we all become AWARE, we can start taking steps to SHIFT to bring out planet Earth into a healthier state! May this article be like one of the three ghosts who came to visit Scrooge to lead him from his place of FEAR, SADNESS and DISCONNECTION to his life’s purpose!

 

The inventor of this cool game! :)! Our Isabella! One of the youngest energy workers I know! :)

The inventor of this cool game! :)! Our Isabella! One of the youngest energy workers I know! 🙂

ANOTHER MINDFUL EXERCISE…

I invite you to bring AWARENESS into your life by playing with this simple exercise that you probably already heard of but have abandoned at some point. This version was invented by our then three-year-old Isabella. The name of the game is “Go Around The Rectangle”. Any time you sit down to have a meal with another person, even just for tea, do this. Start by going around the table (ours was obvious a rectangle, not a circle as Isabella so proudly and stubbornly pointed out). Have everyone respond to some version of the question… “What are you THANK-FULL for?” The kid in all of us, no matter what our age, loves it. This exercise is a simple tool that is incredibly effective. Especially in a time where so many of us automatically reach for a cell phone whenever it rings, regardless of who is around, this will help you and your family/friends re-align to being more grounded and present to life. Do it daily and see the magic that begins to unfold… LIVE MORE IN THE NOW!

 

 

Great big hugs,

Mariaaaaaaaaaa

🙂

WHAT IS GOING ON WITH MARIAAAAAAA?

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

Especially if you live locally to where I live in beautiful Holliston, Massachusetts, you are probably wondering what the hell I’m going to write about today because there is soooooooooo much going on in my life. There usually is a lot but lately it’s been a lot even for me. My being diagnosed with Lyme disease, after being in severe pain for days felt like a driver of an 18-wheeler must feel when he has to make a very sudden stop.

The thing about Lyme disease is that it takes no prisoners. It is a disease that comes in many forms and symptoms. Some people have the rash, some don’t. Some test positive for it, some don’t. I was lucky enough to have it hit hard and ugly right from the beginning. Plus, there are many other similar diseases that get LUMPED into the LYME disease bandwagon because they don’t know how to best individually test for all of them. The hundreds of responses I got from people on my Facebook page not only gave me an ocean-load of good wishes and beautiful prayers, but also an incredible wealth of information about each person’s experience that helped me piece together my own Lyme disease puzzle. The goal for me with things like this is to figure out, “WHAT HAS THIS COME TO TEACH ME?” and “WHY IS THIS THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME?”

This bad boy is PAINFUL! I have never been in so much pain for such a long period of time. I lost 8lbs in less than a week (funny how running almost 20 miles/a week did made me lose almost nothing but I digress… Universe has a sense of humor that I sometimes don’t understand! 😉 ). I slept 15-20 hours a day. My muscles hurt so much that sometimes all I could do was cry. My eyes could not stand to be in sunlight. I could not stand ANY noise. My fever was so high I was hallucinating. I could not get warm. I had cold chills and just kept sweating and sweating and sweating.

In this journey I have found out some amazing things that have helped me remember life’s core laws…

ASKING. Asking for help is something I’m learning how to do better. It is actually starting to feel good because when you do it from a real place of need and/or appreciation it creates an opportunity for the other person to feel good about giving.

AWARENESS. Through this gift of being sick, a number of things have surfaced that I would not have known/noticed had I never gotten bit by that miniscule little tick with an attitude! Here are some of the things I raised my awareness on…

•    ANTIBIOTICS. We overuse them in our society (something I’ve suspect but did not have the medical training to know why). In certain circumstances like with Lyme disease you have to take them but make sure you also take probiotics because it makes a huge difference to your system. The antibiotics kill EVERY BACTERIA but you need healthy bacteria in your body. The probiotics helps store the healthy bacteria so your body is healthier. Special THANK YOU to Darlene Vittori and Michelle Cordani for their help here.

•    GOVERNMENT. I was not too happy to find from a friend in the military that Lyme disease was something the US military invented as part of military chemical warfare in Lyme, CT. They assume it was “accidently” released into the environment! ARGH! Not all awareness needs to make us happy. This news made me feel very angry because that is exactly what this bug felt like, an invader that was ripping pain throughout my body! For some strange reason it made me feel better knowing this and then letting it go.

The incredible healings of Marjorie Themeli really helped me get to a new level of feeling better. Here we are at our graduation.

•    ENERGETICALLY. When things enter our lives they all have a symbolic meaning so I looked up “Lyme disease” to see what it means … “invader, to be invaded, lack of boundaries with other and/or things.” Lots for self reflection here, eh? 😉

BODY FUEL. What I put into my mouth is very mindful HOWEVER I do eat things, lots of things that I put perceived tasted over nutritional value. This week I have not done that. Lyme disease is an inflammatory disease and eating processed foods and sugar makes your body have to work even harder to heal. Realizing this makes it easier to just eat the things that will help my beautiful body feel better! Special THANK YOU to Corinne Kelleher who was so wonderful about bringing me some goodies to eat and for my beautiful mãezinha (“mama” in Portuguese) Raquel who came over with a bunch of groceries and cooked me Portuguese Kale soup.

COMMUNITY. From my community both local and virtual, I was able to get sooooo much love, information and resources. It took the whole global village to help me heal and I am so very thankful for this amazing gift. FEELS GOOD!

ENERGY WORK. I got two amazing healings (in person) by Marjorie Themeli, one of the incredible healers from the energy school I went to. Those healings helped significantly shift a lot of the stuck energy that was in my lower chakras. I felt significantly better after each one. They were incredibly powerful. I also got a lot of long distance healing from many of my dear friends including Cathie Chouinard and Joy Dorsey. Plus, I’m about to take my REIKI MASTER TEACHER class and this was a great self-practice because I once I chose to stop taking pain medication and deal with the pain on my own, it forced me to use all the skills I have learned as a healer on myself so that I could hone them. It was not always easy but you can I say I was VERY FOCUSED! 😉

EXTREME SELF-CARE. Early on it was strongly communicated to me that if I did not fully rest it would come back in a harsher form or never go away…. VERY STRONG MOTIVATION FOR TAKING VERY GOOD CARE OF MYSELF. Sleep is something that in my everyday life I “play” with. It is the one thing I can PUSH and I do all the time. For these last two weeks my body DEMANDED SLEEP and I had no choice. I think it’s a very good reminder of how very important it is to CARVE out the time to actually sleep.

STRESS. It was Thursday at 4:00. Doug & I were coming home from a very long day of showing condos in Boston. It was to be an exciting night. Our friends from Italy were coming just for the night. I had ButterflyMoms but she was going to go with me so it was all good. I had started feeling bad but we had been in Manhattan the day before on The Kelly Show and I thought I was just tired. First we get a text from our clients who are only in town for two days that they want to go back out to do another tour the next day. No problem except that it takes 4-6 hours to book a tour and we have all these plans. Then at about 4:30pm we get a VERY UNEXPECTED call from DCF (Department of Children and Family) informing us that they are coming to take Beatriz the next morning at 9:30am! UH WHAT?! We had thought she was going to be with us until the end of the month so this was a surprise. They just decided they were going to move her to a group home before she went to her permanent home. We asked why… no good answer was given. We tried to explain that we would not have time to say our proper good-byes to her. We tried to explain our circumstances of that evening’s events. We tried to explain that we could not possibly pack her up in such a short period of time… “Sorry, I’m just following what I was told,” was the response. After over an hour of calling and calling (they did this so close to 5 that most social workers had gone home). All of this extreme stress in such a short time, I believe activated the virus. I could not understand it at the time but I am thankful for getting such severe symptoms so quickly so that there is no way I could ignore it.  Gifts in Strange Places… find them in your own life!

As a sidenote: Bea did leave the next morning with just a few weeks worth of stuff. They have found a home for her that better fits her needs. She will do better in a home with no little kids. Some people say, “Sorry it did not work out,” but I believe that it did work out the way it “should”. I got a calling and answered it. It lasted as long as it needed to and we all got exactly what we all needed out of it. I love and miss our beautiful Bea. She is an amazing person who has helped me be a better person.

The Lyme disease is also something that, even though it was extremely challenging, and even painful, has helped me become a more aware, happier person.

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Take a moment and FEEL YOUR LIFE for a moment. Let the ICKIES fall away. Embrace the love. Forgive yourself for not living the perfect life your mind has tricked you into thinking you should be living.  Just be. That is all that is needed for happiness.

CHECKING IN WITH ALL THESE FEELINGS…. HAPPY 7th BIRTHDAY SOPHIA!!!

Hello Beautiful ButterflyMoms!
Deep breaths… things are not moving as planned. I am in a mix of emotions from both the “Land of Should” and the “Land of What Is”. My website is still nowhere near completion and now people have let me know that they are having a hard time leaving comments. Also as I am writing this, my computer cord, although connected to my laptop is not charging it. I am hoping I have enough juice to write this blog before it all crashes. For some reason I am attracting TECHNOLOGY DRAMA. I feel a block in the flow. It is feeling a bit overwhelming. I have tried to “fix” things but they seem to be more and more muddled. I don’t know what that is about. I feel a strong, overwhelming, unfamiliar need to just go with the flow. The part of me that wants things to look and be the way I envision it, is pissed. I am observing.

What I see is a wonderful series of example of JUST BEING. I see by following my heart, creating ButterflyMoms, doing the Soul Support groups, writing the blog and building community where I live that I’m creating this most amazing flow of incredible people to me! I started off today with the running group I mentioned last week and even more people came today. It is sooooooo glorious to have such a vehicle for moving our bodies and meeting new people. The people who come to the running group at 5am three times a week are connecting to that sweet spot in life that is what it feels like when we are IN ALIGNMENT with our dreams/lives/self. You know you are there because it FEELS GOOD!

Nestle among all this is the fact that tomorrow would have been our beloved Sophia’s 7th birthday. Someone asked me how that will be and honestly I don’t really “KNOW” how to feel. I now know her leaving shattered my heart and much like a beloved ceramic piece even when it’s glued it is never the same. We are all on planet earth to learn, this is our school to work out our stuff. Under that way of remembering why we are here, I feel that I am thank-full how having been Sophia’s mom and I keep doing things that I know will make her proud of me. Happy 7th Birthday Beautiful Sopha-licious! WE LOVE YOU!!!
I wish for you the ability to see how your actions reverberate in the world!

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Why Are You Talking About SCROOGE in April?

Scrooge in FULL-OUT "Fear Mode". Not in the moment. Not really seeing the gifts in front of him just looking at everyone and everything as a treat. How many times do we feel this inside and hide it from the world?

Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

Our Thursday night Support Your Soul Sessions have unearthed a huge enough block for me to share here…Although it is it has been more than 3 months since Christmas we were visited at the ButterflyMoms Support Group by the lessons of Scrooge. You know Scrooge, right? The character from A Christmas Carol who is visited by the four ghosts, his friend, Christmas past, Christmas present and Christmas future. It is pretty clear that our world is shifting. If 10 years ago someone told me I would not have a home phone by choice I would have thought them cuckoo but it happened because things I could not have imagined (cell phones) emerged and SHIFTED the way we did things.

That SHIFT is an important of today’s blog. There are new technologies emerging all the time that are affecting us directly. That fact is crashing into the way we are used to doing things. For millions of years people have done the same things as our parents, generation to generation…grow up, find a mate, work, get a place to live, have babies, have grandkids, retire, die…although there were variations that was basically the equation that kept getting passed down. NOW THINGS ARE SHIFTING… BIG TIME!

One of the biggest AHAs I “downloaded” yesterday while at yesterday’s ButterflyMoms group was the gift of Scrooge. He was living his life in total fear believing that if he had enough money he would feel safe. As someone who made her first million by the time I was 27, I can tell you that it does not keep you safe, it actually scares you more because you are sooooo afraid of losing it. Now that I have “lost” it I can look at the gift of the lesson instead of focusing on the loss. Scrooge got his AHA moment from the ghosts who came to visit him. He was sooooooo TRAPPED in his fears and thoughts that he could not SEE all the gifts that were all around him. The ghosts gave him clarity and FROM THAT CLARITY CAME GREAT JOY!

Does your family look "perfect" from the outside?

It has NEVER been MORE IMPORTANT than NOW to CHECK INTO YOUR LIFE! Most of bought into the formula above of doing the right thing, filling out the necessary forms, having the perfect wedding, celebrating our kids’ birthdays with the appropriate birthday parties, visiting the in-laws, attending the neighbor’s BBQ, going on the once a year vacation…blah, blah, blah…. All the SHOULDs that are chocking the very life out of you. Don’t get me wrong. It is not that we would not LOVE to do things if we were living in the juicy moment of life but it’s the fact that soooooooooo much is coming at us that for many we are on automatic pilot. For me, I very often am so flooded that I avoid to-do lists all the time because I feel like I will never even come close to finishing them. When we are in this flooded mode others can come in and do things that we do not have enough energy or focus to defend against.

At the writing of this blog it is the year 2012 and the people who run the bohemoth corporations, because their number one goal is financial “profits”, are mindlessly raping and pillaging our planet right in front of our eyes. With those profits they are changing and controlling many of the things we do including even the very essence of our food! Our oceans are full of trash. Even though the corporations have a lot of power, if we all become AWARE and even do small things to SHIFT then we will all be a better planet for it! May this blog be like one of the many ghosts who came to visit Scrooge to lead him FROM HIS BOTTOMLESS FEAR INTO HIS DEEP JOY!

I invite you this week bring AWARENESS into your life! Start by going around the dining room table and having everyone respond to some version of the question… “What are you THANK-FULL for?” The kids love it. This will help your whole family/friends re-align to being more grounded and present in their life. Do it daily and see the magic that begins to unfold…Now in the comment section share with others what you do to LIVE MORE IN THE NOW!

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

YOUR LITTLEST VOICE…

 

 

 

TODAY, AS YOU ENTER YOUR INNER WORLD WITH THE HELP OF THE BUTTERFLYMOMS BLOG, GIVE YOUR SELF THE GIFT OF TAKING A DEEP, LUSCIOUS CLEANSING BREATH…. IN… HOLD……… OUT……..…AHHHHHHH. NOW WIGGLE YOUR TOESIES….GROUND YOUR SELF…. FEEL HOW VEEEEEEEERY GOOD IT FEELS TO FEEL…YESSSSSSSSSSSSS! It’s all FEEDBACK TO GET YOU BACK TO YOUR JOY…. YOUR CHOICE… Now let’s begin today’s adventure…

Sweet ButterflyMoms,

Inside of each one of us is a voice. It is our original voice, a voice without fear, a voice that is the core essence of who we are. Over time, as we develop our brain, the ability to communicate and the desire to be accepted by others covers over that little voice. Like a once precious childhood item that gets buried in a stuffy attic we lose our deepest connection to who we are. Over time more and more stuff gets piled up in that attic and soon the task of finding it seems so HUGE that we put it off…many times until it is too late.

DEEP BREATH HERE….AHHHHHHHHHHH!

Our world is shifting. I’ve written a lot about that. Are you feeling it? Thirty years ago if a man cried he was weak. If you went to a mental health specialist, you were crazy. If you worked, you were a bad mom. If you were gay, you were an abomination and somehow seen as not human. Although there are some people that still believe in these, for the most part society overall has done a huge shift into awareness and acceptance. As a whole our society has moved up the chakras and is now starting to enter the heart….AHHHHHHHH, the magic of the fourth chakra! The heart, energetically speaking is that meeting place where your lower self meets your higher self. It is the bridge of those two worlds. Without your heart there is deep and permanent chasm of disconnection.

In many ways your little voice, for many of us, is that of our hearts. It reminds me of a very young child who has much older siblings that are always louder and more forceful about what gets done and who gets heard. Can you picture what I mean? How is your heart feeling today? Be present with what feedback comes back. There is no good. There is no bad. Feelings are feelings. If you have not used yours in a while they may be a bit overwhelming but just be present with them for they are the guidance system towards finding your little voice. 🙂

Love to you! (and lots of it!)

Great big hug luscious hugs,

Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

I have been doing the ButterflyMoms workshops for months and months now. It is hard to believe but each one is different based on who is there. Each person adds to the “flavor” of the event, as does the day, weather, food, temperature, lighting, etc. Everything factors in to create a very unique “unfolding” each week. I have no idea why but last night’s was one of my VERY favorite. The people who showed up were present and willing to be vulnerable. Magic happens when those two things come together. It is one of most incredible feelings to watch people, especially women, especially moms, shift from pain to AHA!!!! (deep breath here!) :)!!!!

I want to feel happy and play more in the world!

It breaks my heart that I see sooooooo many women struggling with life. It is only now in my 40’s that I’ve truly started finding the “tools” that help me regulate my energy, intention, focus and flow. For soooooooo many years I kept hitting that wall of frustration, trying everything I knew to break free. No matter what I tried I just felt ICKY. Not that I did not have moments of joy, of course I did, but not like now. Now I have the most amazing experience…like going from black and white (rabbit-eared) TV to  FULL-SPECTRUM COLOR FLAT SCREEN TV…with BOSE surround sound! OH YA BABY! YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TALKIN’ BOUT! 😉

So the next step of my journey is leading me to do a day long workshop at one of the coolest places on earth… The Peace Abbey in Sherborn, Massachusetts. It’s one of THE MOST magical places you can go and yet most people speed right by it and miss all it has to offer… much like we do in our life. I believe that when you stand on the side of love, wonderful things start to unfold. I am feeling this wonderfully delicious surge of energy around doing this event. It will have all of the elements you need to get happy and grounded in your life. There will be wonderfully yummy homemade vegetarians meals, incredible workshops, shamanic journeying, yoga, journaling, meditation…etc.

I Want Others To Feel Good Too...There are Soooooooo Many Princess in The World Who Have Forgotten That They are!

This year is a year of self-care for me. For too long I have been neglecting my body and my needs. To be the best ______________ (I can fill in the blank with any of the following: MAMA, DAUGHTER, WIFE, LOVER, FRIEND, SISTER, BOSS, NEIGHBOR, ENTREPRENEUR, WRITER, BUSINESS OWNER, ARTIST…) then I need to start with me FIRST. I want to be able to offer an affordable way others can have the same gift! I hope you come on this wonderful journey with me. I promise you will not regret it…unless you decide not to come! 😉

So here are the details… I’ve put them in this form so you can not only get more information so you can sign up, but also so you can take this paragraph and help spread the word… Please do. We want a wonderful mix of people there so we can create a wonderful “recipe” of flavors as we do in the weekly ButterflyMoms workshops.  Here it is…

Let's All Play and Learn Together!

WHAT IS BUTTERFLYMOMS?
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 Thursday Night we have a ButterflyMoms workshop at 783 Washington Street in Holliston, MA at 8pm that feeds your soul. They started after Maria manifested her dream…with the help of Sophia…to be a guest on THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW and every week since she had done the workshop on Thursday nights.

 

*Every Friday Morning, as a way of honoring Sophia’s soul, Maria gets up at 4:30am to write the weekly ButterflyMoms blog. Hundreds of people read it every week to feed their souls. Maria started writing the blog in 2009 and has written EVERY Friday since.
