When people talk to me about the ButterflyMoms blog they sometimes say, “You should write about __________.” Before I started writing this blog, and all of my educational (up through graduate school, MBA) and business/work world training had taught me the same thing: “Plan it out. Have a strategy.” This is called EXTERNAL POWER and it is how most of the world is taught that “success” happens. The challenge is that this type of “success” can only occur through the five senses, meaning if your brain cannot see, hear, touch, taste or feel it then it has no merit. In this model power is outside of you and to be safe you need to hoard, plan, effort. This was of being has gotten our lives and our planet in a whole mess of trouble.
It is easy to see how “hard” things have gotten but the “good” news is that (as they say in the movie LOVE ACTUALLY) “LOVE IS ALL AROUND US”. Especially with the coming of 2012 more and more of us are realizing that we are spirits first and bodies second. We are realizing that the answers are INSIDE of us, not outside. Remembering and living life this way helps us all move away from the EXTERNAL POWER “struggling” and into MULTI-SENSORY “living”.
When I sit down to write I turn my brain off from it’s “helpful” suggestions, like a puppy running around saying, “How about this” or “How about that?” What I write is not planned. It is emerges from my heart and sure I need my brain to write but it is sooooooo not leading the show. It is how I practice TRUST in the world. When I put myself out there in that manner and you read the blog or come to a workshop than you also take in that energy…and hopefully that inspires you too!
HAPPY NEW YEAR Y’ALL!

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.
