What Will YOUR River or Tears Teach YOU?

Doug this morning getting his chemo treatment to kill his B-cells.

AS YOU ENTER TODAY’s BLOG TAKE A DEEP CLEANSING BREATH (IN…………HOLD…………OUT……..…WIGGLE YOUR TOESIES)….GROUND YOUR SELF…. FEEL HOW VERY GOOD IT FEELS TO FEEL…It’s all FEEDBACK TO GET YOU BACK TO YOUR JOY…. YOUR CHOICE Let’s begin!

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

Today is a different day, in terms of how I’m writing the blog. Today, instead of writing from my warm, cozy home, I’m writing from one of Mass General Hopsital’s off-sites, located right across from the Boston Garden….Today, my beautiful, beloved husband is getting another chemo treatment for his auto immune disease, vasculitis. He needs to get one every few months in order to stay alive. The bitch of it is that while these treatments are saving his life…for now…they are also destroying his body’s precious organs and systems. (BREATHE…more for me than for you.) Because of his illness he will need to get this for the rest of his life, but it’s also killing his immune system.

I feel scared. I let it wash over me. I go through waves of thought of “how to be” with this information. Sometimes I want to completely ignore it (which I can do VERY well, turns out). Sometimes I want to cry and cry and cry which I allowed myself yesterday with one of my friends who was wonderful at simply holding that space for me. What a gift to give someone, the space to simply let them get the emotions out while you bear witness. No judgement. No suggestions. Just holding the space. Feels soooooo good the recipient. Wish we could give gift certificates in it. They would “sell out”.

Last week in Boston while taking the kids to the New England Aquarium... FUN!!!

Where I am right now, as I sit next to him watching the liquid going into his veins, is at peace. It does not mean I don’t feel sad, but it does mean I am realizing, after all that energy release, that for RIGHT NOW he is safe. If I project into the future I am a MESS. I did that last year and it was a futile exercise in wasting energy. For right now, he is here. For right now, I am able to look into his eyes, kiss his lips, hug him, hold his hands. We have the gift of RIGHT NOW. All of us have this gift but most of us squander it worrying about what fears we can project into the future or something we wish we could change from the past. One gift that Doug’s illness has brought us is the gift of realizing one of life’s most precious gifts…the gift of BE-ING PRESENT, the gift of RIGHT NOW.

Doug, if you are reading this… this blog is dedicated to you and all the adventures we are having RIGHT NOW! These moments are PRICELESS! I am honored to be sharing my life with you. Truly honored. Thank you for helping me become a better person. 🙂 I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

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.

CRASH LANDING BACK INTO YOUR LIFE…EACH MORNING!

AS YOU ENTER TODAY’s BLOG TAKE A DEEP CLEANSING BREATH (IN…………HOLD…………OUT……WIGGLE YOUR TOESIES)….Ground yourself. Let’s begin!

My Isabella who is now 4 wakes up most days happily embracing each day's adventures!

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

Today’s blog posting is short because what needs to be said is simple, yet as deep as you feel like going. The journey choice is always yours and this is great reminder of that!… Feel free to soak it in!

At last night’s ButterflyMoms workshop something very deep emerged that I feel you might benefit from reading. It starts with a simple question…How do your start you day?

From the moment you wake up into our world, no matter where you have “been” during the night, how do you spend those first PRECIOUS seconds/minutes? With heartfelt intention? With deep gratitude? With great appreciation? With unconscious mindlessness? With unfeeling disconnection? With an automatic pilot feel?

What would YOUR LIFE look like if you took the time to re-enter EACH DAY aligning yourself with the level you want to live at. Take that in for a moment. Breathe it in.

If you now CRASH LAND back into your life each morning what does your life look like? What does it feel like? Does that feed your day? Does that feed your soul? How do you treat those around you when you are in this “mode”?

Simple NOTICINGS in our lives make ALL THE DIFFERENCE. Notice how you start you day and you have uncovered the blueprint for how you live your life.

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

INVISIBLE PURE JOY…Right Under My Nose!

AS YOU ENTER TODAY’s BLOG TAKE A DEEP CLEANSING BREATH (IN…………HOLD…………OUT……WIGGLE YOUR TOESIES)….Let’s begin…ACTIVATE YOUR SOUL CONNECTION !

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

At yesterday’s ButterflyMoms workshop I had a simple epiphany, almost unnoticeable at first, but once I brought my attention to it, I realized the PURE JOY that the cool, clean glass of water by my bedside brings me every night.

“WHAT!? WATER? Is that what I just wrote? How can water make you happy?” For those of you who are mentally traveling at breakneck speeds, trying to fit your never-ending TO-DO LIST, this may not seem like anything even slightly important. “So what you have water by your bed. Big deal.”

Having water by my bedside gives me wonderful feelings that I have not even ever really noticed because for most of my life my brain has been RACING (against whom I have ZERO idea…although now that I’ve put it out there, it’s probably racing against myself which is probably why I was NEVER really the winner and could never stop racing. That is probably a GREAT definition of living in the RAT RACE).

The more I have called my energy back, the more I have started living in the NOW, the more of these simple AHA’s I’m having/noticing. To wake up in the middle of the night feeling parched and being able to simply reach out and find the wonderfully cool glass there waiting for me…..AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! IT FEELS SOOOOOO GOOD!!!!

It is a simple a ritual that without even asking my parents, I know at least three generations before me have done. I did not even think about it but it’s something I picked up from them. It makes me feel VERY HAPPY to realize this. It feels like yet another connection point with them.

I find it fascinating that I have been doing this all my life not realizing that this simple “before I go to bed” ritual was grounding and connecting me. It also brings in deep GRATITUDE for I know that in many parts of the world this LUXURY is not a possibility.

Part of what is sooooo wonderful about doing this work, is that you get to uncover so many magical moments like this one. I am at this point where now when I think about bedtime, part of my “RITUAL” is going to get a glass of water and even just thinking about it brings me GREAT JOY! What simple things are you doing in your life that bring you joy?

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

A Mother-to-Mother CATFIGHT

AS YOU ENTER TODAY’s BLOG TAKE A DEEP CLEANSING BREATHE (IN…………HOLD…………OUT……WIGGLE YOUR TOESIES)….Let’s begin…ACTIVATE YOUR SOUL !

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

Being a mother can be a wonderful thing and yet there are aspects of it I have struggled with though. One of them is, to be quite honest is something most don’t really bring up, FRIENDS. Many women end up becoming friends with the moms of the kids in their mommy group. Some of these groups, for some reason, develop a lot of toxicity in the sense that we are suddenly transported back to middle school. What forms is basically a clique with its own hierarchical system. There are the leaders and the followers. “In” members and “out” members.

A client called me yesterday completely distraught because of how she was being treated by her group, women she had known for years and years. Major life lesson here. Life gives you EXACTLY what you need. Whether it’s a mommy group or a job, when it’s “time” for you to move on from a group you will be “released” one way or another. Energetically it’s the same thing that happens when a baby is being ready to be born. A million different little things work together to “release” the baby at just the right time, no matter how comfort-cozy it is in the womb. When it no longer serves you to be with that group you are also released…even if you go kicking and screaming.

So let’s say you are part of one of these groups, it could really be any group, and when you leave (whether you get kicked out or do it out of your own accord), there may be some very ICKY feelings floating up. WHAT IF…you took those feelings as a gift? WHAT IF… you paid attention to how much of your precious energy you were mindlessly using up to lament this occurrence?

If someone call you a “giraffe” you think…”wow that person has their own stuff going on.” Right? Even if you were in public you would still be fine because it’s obvious you are not a giraffe…DUH!

Well what happens is someone calls you a ____________________ (asshole, jerk, pig, bad mother, cow…). Then how do you feel? DEEP BREATH HERE. And how would you feel if it were in public? Hmmmmmm? 😉 If you are TRIGGERED by a word that means that at least a part of you FEARS it is true. ANOTHER DEEP BREATH HERE.

At this point also notice if you are JUST READING this and your mind is PREVENTING YOU FROM ACTUALLY FEELING THE EXERCISE ABOVE. Noticing this is important because if it’s happening here, with something so simple and “safe”, it’s most likely happening ALL OVER YOUR LIFE.

You have two choices right now as you read (and feel) this…The first CHOICE you have is to FIGHT/FLIGHT against this ICKINESS. This can come in the form of either ATTACKING the other person or DISMISSING/COCOONING/RUNNING AWAY from the experience. Most of us have unconsciously chosen this choice all our lives as an AUTOMATIC RESPONSE but now we are being taught something that uses our ENERGY in a much more efficient way…which brings us to the third CHOICE.

Choice two is to simply NOTICE how you are feeling but what was said. Let’s say the word that most triggered you was COW, notice how you feel when someone says that word around you. Whatever gets triggered is what needs to come out and be released from your believe system for it is a hidden fear that no longer serves you. If it brings up issues of your being over-weight than play with that for a while. Notice if that is something that you believe is true. If it is, do you want to do something about it? If you do, fine. If you don’t fine. It is your life. It is your body. It is your energy to use as you so wish.

Now back to the expulsion from your group…fears will certainly come up, which gives you the WONDERFUL opportunity to check in with yourself and see what FEAR is ready to be released. Our bodies belong to this planet. When we are born we come with soooo many wonderful gifts that most of us have never been taught how to use. Imagine getting a brand new top-of-the-line music system and never even taking it out of the box. How you use your energy and how you TRANSLATE what is happening in your life, determines how much juiciness/aliveness/joy your life has. There are many ways to do this, one simple way is to read this blog every Friday to feed your soul. PEACE TO YOU!

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

ACTS OF LOVE…OR…Is it a STRESSFUL TO DO

Today’s blog is dedicated to… Dot Walsh and Lewis Randa(founder) who run The Peace Abbey http://www.peaceabbey.org/ in Sherborn, Massachusetts. They have created a magical space.  It is a center that was created when Mother Theresa came to visit and requested that it be formed. Since that time they have had many amazing people link up with the Abbey like Yoko Ono, Muhammad Ali, Joan Baez, Nelson Mandela, Maya Angelou and the list goes on and on. The Abbey is on the brink of closing in February if some major donors don’t come through but in the meantime when you go there, let yourself explore, like a child would explore. You will be in awe of the magic you will find and how much of yourself that you thought was lost will re-connect with you there.  Beautiful Dot and Lewis, I see you! THANK YOU FOR YOUR HEART-FELT work!

TAKE A DEEP CLEANSING BREATHE AS YOU ENTER TODAY’s BLOG… (IN…………HOLD…………OUT……WIGGLE YOUR TOESIES….Let’s begin…ACTIVATE YOUR SOUL :)!

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

Today, I find myself drawn to writing about checking in with yourself…to gently remind you to avoid the CRAMMIES (the battle each one of us seems to wage to fit more and more and more into our day) What would your holidays be like if you honored your SELF first?

Let’s take the act of sending out “holiday” cards….Check in with yourself. Are the cards you send out are ACTS OF LOVE…OR…Is it a STRESSFUL TO DO that when you think about you cut your breath short? Be as honest as you can. Check in. How are YOU feeling about this?

Now for this small example if you are already GROUNDED (meaning you have checked in with yourself and are on the feel good channel no matter what you have decided it fits for YOU and thus gives you back even more energy than you put out and is effortless to do) then you are all set, but if you are feeling STRESSED (lack of breathing, a pressure, a sense of panic/fear/hopelessness, feeling of not enough time) then you are draining your life’s energy. It is at this simple IMPACT POINT that the proverbial SHIT HITS THE FAN.

The good news is that the more you start noticing this IMPACT POINT and how you are leaning (either towards being GROUNDED or STRESSED then you can make the necessary adjustments. So taking our simple holiday card example, if you are feeling stressed SHIFT something from don’t do it this year to add some fun and creativity to the process. Remember that people most want to BE SEEN, so one example is to get your kids onboard and create some family tradition around it. (BFM TIP: Usually whenever you add CREATIVITY and FUN to what you are doing you are filling your SELF with ENEGY…ESPECIALLY if you add GRATITUDE to the mix). This year we did some of ours while on a long car trip.  It was a pretty funny experience…much like life if you don’t take it soooooooo seriously…remember no one gets out alive! Savor the bits!

MERRY EVERYTHING!

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Before You Wrap Another Gift…READ THIS!

The Amazing Patricia Delano

Today’s blog is dedicated to the advocates who stand up for the children who have no voice, especially my good friend Pat Delano who has quietly fed just the appropriate amount of love to generations of families, who are invisible to most of society. Beautiful Pat, I see you! THANK YOU FOR YOUR HEART-FELT work!

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

Ahhhh, the holidays. There are sooooooooo many SHOULDs around this time of year. We should get our gift shopping done, and order the cards, and send out the cards, and put up the lights and plan the presents and, and and, and and! Why? Well for many of us we have an idea that is imbedded in our head of what a MERRY CHRISTMAS or HAPPY HANUKKAH “S-H-O-U-L-D” look like.

Check in with your feelings instead of with your TO DO LIST. This is where most people fall off the happiness wagon. They start to FEEL…tired, stressed, scared (around spending too much money), etc and instead of FEELING THE FEELING, they SHUT DOWN those feelings and override them so they accomplish THE LIST. That is the equivalent of driving with your eyes closed. The feelings we feel are a direct feedback system from source energy…what some people call God, Goddess, Shiva, Allah, Buddha, Shakti, etc….whatever name works for you is the “right” answer, EVEN if it is a different name for the person next to you. (TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND REALLY TAKE THAT IN.)

There is an epidemic of UNHAPPINESS and SUFFERING on this planet because people don’t connect with their internal guidance system. Doing what is RIGHT according to expectations we put on ourselves and other put on us…versus what feels good.

Now, at this point you might feel that maybe not so little voice inside of you saying, “What feels good, ya right. Wouldn’t that be nice to play all day but I have to work and make a living to support myself and my family. Ya, that would be nice. Maybe when I win the lottery!”…Does this sound familiar?

Every day millions of people get into large metal cones and fly, yes FLY through the sky, sometimes for thousands of miles. A hundred years ago most people would have thought you were totally nuts to even THINK this could happen.

So your assignment this week is to notice your feelings. If you are feeling sooooooo stressed that you don’t even see your kids/partner/friends/self, really see and let them/him/her/you know how important they/he/she/you are to you! You are a part of source energy. You are part of that magnificence! REMEMBER THAT ALL THE DAYS OF YOUR LIFE…the days you are “depressed” are the days you forget.

MERRY EVERYTHING!

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

DON’T FORGET TO PAY YOUR BILLS…A HORROR STORY!

Today’s blog is dedicated to my dear friend the beautiful Maria José Chaves who died on Wednesday night. She wanted so badly to live and fought for her life with her heart wide open…She is now an angel among us…actually she was her whole life. 444

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

I have been sitting here for two hours putzing around on Facebook and answering emails because there are so much amazing AHAs coming through for me. I am seeing the gifts more and more that are around me, not as an occasional HAPPENING, but rather as the natural fabric of my life.

The one thing that is coming up for me to write about is not what I feel like sharing with the world because of how vulnerable I feel but isn’t this why you come here to read and why I write… to take life to the next level, to not stay stuck in our little “boxes” the for sooooooo many generations people have lived comfortably? Our society today is not the same as it was even 10 years ago. If you are paying attention you can feel it. Many people are freaking out. THE JOBS! WHERE ARE THE JOBS?!

At the ButterflyMoms workshop last night we talked about how many people are scared of what is happening to the economy. Large corporations are failing. People are losing their jobs. House prices are falling. The stock market is extremely volatile. College tuition is skyrocketing. All these things are making people really freak out because they have a picture in their mind of what life SHOULD look like and the type of life they want to live. They think that because the world is SHIFTING the riches they once dreamed about will be no longer. The life they dreamed of is evaporating for us and our children.

Well then, let’s define what life has been for most of us in that dream scenario… We were taught to always be planning for the future, always striving, always goal-setting. Work hard all your life. Follow the rules. Fill out the forms. Retire. Die. The MEAT of life was usually never most people got to because they spent so much time on the BONES, the structure of their lives. The UGLY FACT is that most people have mindlessly accepted the role of working to pay our bills. Even though most of us live our lives around PAYING OUR BILLS, NOT MANY OF US REALIZE IT. Think about it though. If you did not have to go to work today would you? If you are sleep deprived and wished you could just sleep and take care of your body do you? If you have wanted to take time off from working to do something you love can you?

“Not me Maria! I can kind of see your point but I don’t live that way,” I hope you don’t. I hope you are living your dreams and flowing with your life in perfect harmony of what it feels good to you, no matter what the mob outside your house (or sometimes in your house) is doing! I hope you are using money as a tool and not being used by money. In the best selling book, THE FOUR AGREEMENTS, Miguel Ruiz shares that most of us prostitute ourselves for money. It is just part of being human. CHOOSING what we are willing to prostitute ourselves for and what we are not gives us a better quality of life…(I hope no one  ever takes that quote out of context for me 😉 )

It is about awareness. It is about noticing. It is about choice. What feels good in your life? Do more of that. If you live locally and can come to a ButterflyMoms workshop on Thursday nights at 8pm you can definitely get a better explanation if you need one.

I thank you for showing up in your own life. If you have been attracted to our wonderful ButterflyMoms blog the universe is sending you a message that your soul already knows. Create from it what you need to. Up to 1,200 readers come to ButterflyMoms every week to feed their souls. WOW! Thank you for being a part of this wonderful community! As we all continue to celebrate this magical holiday season I wish you much AWARENESS in your life so that your pure JOY can come streaming in! MERRY EVERYTHING!

Mariaaaaaaaaaaa

ALRIGHT, I SURRENDER!

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

Every Friday when I sit at my computer I am met with a flood of ideas and voices all crowding each other to be heard. My first reaction is to feel overwhelmed. What happens next is critical. I have one of two choices. One, I can “stand down”, which is a cool line I picked up from watching action movies, which means I can abandon my writing, OR, two, I can choose to surrender. What do I mean by surrendering? In surrendering I simply sit back, change my breath pattern (feels like taking a big sigh, sometimes even two or three…depends on the day), and asking, much like that 70’s gameshow, “Will the real ______ please stand up.” In this case I’m asking for help from the universe to guide me to write towards “my best and highest good”.

Once I make that request I’m given only the very first part of what to write about. I surrender again as I feel my mind creep in with “helpful” suggestions. There is a place for your mind but, in writing, I find that REALLY good writing happens only when your brain serves as background information help and not the main writer. The main writing, at least for me, comes from spirit. It’s so fun for me to write, because I never know how it’s going to turn out.

This photo was taken about two weeks before our beautiful Sophia died, at her first (and only) birthday party which was an incredibly magical day!

The very first time I experienced this (that I am super conscious of) was the morning I awoke after my little girl Sophia’s sudden death. As I was sleeping I started getting a stream of words  coming through. I tried to ignore it but I had a DEEP KNOWING that I would not remember it later and that it was important that it be shared. My mind was still semi-asleep as my soul guided my body downstairs to my desk and began to write as fast as I could to catch up to the words that were streaming in. Those were the words that I later read at her funeral and can be found here…. http://www.becauseofsophia.com/whoissophia.asp#Letter

The universe is always channeling energy through you. You have sooooo many resources around you that if you STOPPED to REALIZE it you would be amazed, delighted and humbled. Today, slow down, listen to your inner voice, use your breath. Do it consciously. For some because you don’t do this very often you might get the voice of fear/judgment. That is the ego! It is only happy when it is controlling you. It can only control you if you forget that your ego is NOT YOU! Remember in the Tom & Jerry or Bugs Bunny cartoons when you saw the devil and the angel on the character’s shoulder? The devil is the ego. It is only happy if you are not. Here’s where most people get lost in the mix, judging or punishing the ego only makes it stronger. The only way to get rid of it is to BRING GENTLE AWARENESS to it. Realize that it is not you but your fears. Realize that when the ego is on YOUR TRUE SELF cannot be. The TREASURE of who YOU really are is buried underneath that layer of icky. This is not “good” or “bad”, it is just the reason for why your life is the way it is. All you have to do is ACTIVATE CHOICE. Is this how I want to live my life? YES, stay the same. NO, then shift to breath and awareness of the present moment, like me and my writing, you will be given only the next step. Trust in that. Sit back, activate your breath and ACTIVATE YOUR NOW! The only power we have is in the present moment. This season of gift-giving give yourself the gift of ACTIVATING YOURS.

I thank you for showing up in your own life. If you have been attracted to our wonderful ButterflyMoms blog the universe is sending you a message that your soul already knows. Create from it what you need to. Up to 1,200 readers come to ButterflyMoms every week to feed their souls. WOW! Thank you for being a part of this wonderful community!

SHORT and TO THE POINT…

Yesterday was Thanksgiving… today is Black Friday… Monday is Cyber Monday… Your life is full of a parade of endless events, holidays and occasions. How they FILL YOU or EMPTY YOU (people call that “stress”) comes from how you are in your core. How much can you take from the outside world before you start knocking yourself down?

The worst abuser you will ever meet is YOU. (Take one deep BREATH here.) Take that in for a moment. The worst pain, the stolen opportunities, the negative talk…most of it has come from you….Sure it may have originated from someone outside of you but a part of you took that on and even without anyone else being there IMPRISONED you in this BOX of how you SHOULD be.

Now, your box might be very PRETTY…or even very BIG but do you really want to live in a box?

Great B-I-G hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

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 NO MATTER WHAT!

How to Have the Perfect Adult Temper Tantrum…

Image

Hello Beautiful ButterflyMoms Community,

With all this “different” weather we have been having it’s hard to tell but if you turn on your radio you will see that the “HOLIDAY” season is upon us. If we break down the word it means HOLY DAYS. Take that in for a moment, when you think about the triple threat combo of Thanksgiving * Xmas/Kwanza/Hannukah * New Years Eve/Day do you FEEL “HOLY” or do you feel STRESSED?

Let that REALLY sink in…Take a DEEP DEEP BREATH here for this is a GREAT BIG JUICY lesson…if you let it be…YOU get to CHOOSE which story you want by HOW you live your life. Honestly, check in with yourself, it’s just you and me right now, here playing with these words…YOU ARE SAFE. Check in with yourself and notice if you are living YOUR life… or the life someone else told you to live. (BREATHE) This is NOT a ONE-SIZE FITS ALL LIFE! People have lived that way for a long time but the growing AWARENESS is shifting that. There are people who are very MAD that the SHIFT is happening…mainly because they followed the rules of the LAND OF SHOULD. They sacrificed their dreams. They worked HARD. Did what they were supposed to do even if it meant sacrificing their inner voice/callings, and now the rules are all shifting. They are shifting at a historically huge pace!

Now I used the word SACRIFICING…let’s break down that word. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary TO SACRIFICE means “destruction or surrender of something for the sake of something else.” We were killing our inner individual voice for the sake of a larger group. Fitting was almost always necessary for survival so at that time it made a lot of sense.

So for eons we have been giving their power to the structures of our societies (organizations, families, traditions). This was just assumed for thousands of years… and NOW we human beings are re-thinking WHAT IT MEANS TO LIVE. We may still give our power to these institutions but we do it more mindfully than ever before. For those who are not being mindful and just operating in their THIS IS WHAT I’M SUPPOSED TO DO mode, you are creating the perfect storm for the perfect ADULT TEMPER TANTRUM…. Stressing over money, Cramming more things into your already bulging to do list, Surrounding yourself with energy vampires, Not liking what is reflected back in the mirror, Not fitting into your fat jeans, Eating highly processed foods, Drinking too much, Sleeping too little, Moving too little…these are all things that bring you more and more OUT OF ALIGNMENT with your TRUE SELF. When that happens the little kid inside of you that you have been ABUSING and/or NEGLECTING will momentarily show you just how much she is DISAPPOINTED. Be kind to her. Be kind to your SELF.

So where do you start? START WHERE YOU ARE. Right now, check in. Might feel different at first, especially if you don’t often listen to you and your needs but practice it more and more. If you are feeling STRESSED know that is you losing energy. Find ways to FLOW with your day instead of cramming, worrying, excusing, complaining, dreading your way through it. SHOW UP FOR YOU! Right now list three things you can do to FEED YOUR SOUL…RIGHT NOW! Write them down. It will first start with little things and will eventually grow to big things.

I have been doing this for months. The ButterflyMoms group I run has inspired me in soooo many wonderful ways. The courage those who have come have shown is simply inspiring. (AHHHHHHHHHHHH!) (sigh) For months I’ve been doing these little things so today I’ve built up the courage (and CARVED out the time) to go to Boston for the day to go start writing my next book! It feels scary and awesome! I always feel soooo good when I’m in a city and Boston and I go way back. I feel sooooo good there…I know I’m repeating myself but it bears repeating! Today is an adventure. It will be interesting to see what I come up with…but that is living! 🙂

Speaking of living…this HOLY DAY SEASON, add some AWARENESS to where you are “planting” your thoughts and actions. Create as much MEANING and FUN as you can. A bumpy ride it will be but being fully alive calls for ups and downs…just like a heartbeat. Up and down is a healthy heart….a flat line heart beat is death. I invite you have the most magical HOLY DAY SEASON….evah (Bostonian way of saying “ever” ;)!!!)

Finally, next week is our 26th ButterflyMoms workshop in a row – that is a whole half a year since The Oprah Winfrey Show! Since it falls on a Thanksgiving instead of a LIVE meeting I’m going to have a 30 minute conference call at 8pm (our normal start time) to help kick off your HOLY DAY SEASON on the right foot. And instead of the normal $25 it’s only $5 for the call. Space is limited so please sign up today… https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=UJJK8Z2SZ2NLE

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE! I’m sooooooooooo THANKFUL for you! What a wonderful journey! J Glad we are on it together!

Great B-I-G hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
