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

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

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!

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

P.S. Please help me support my dream, the one Sophia helped me push forward.

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

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.

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!

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaa

SHORT and TO THE POINT…

<>a href=”http://butterflymoms.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/303043_191173077625698_145519288857744_435096_837469536_n.jpg”>Hello Beautiful ButterflyMoms Community,

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

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!

TWO STORIES…WHICH ARE YOU LIVING?

Hello Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

WOW! What a very cool date today is 11-11-11!!!! I don’t know that much about numerology, but even so, if I let myself pay attention, I can FEEL that there is something very cool about that number, and about today. I’m tempted to go online and read what it means, but for right now, I just want to FEEL, check in on my soul/instinct/gut/ intuition and PRACTICE FEELING what I’m feeling.

Why do I use the word “practice”? Well, we on planet earth are, oftentimes, in the middle of the race before we realize where we are. In other words we are not very PRESENT with the PRESENT. When you were born into this planet, just like everyone else, you received a body. Slowly you started acquiring skills like walking and talking. Learning to BE PRESENT or learning how to ASK for what you want, is no different. You must also acquire these skills. Ahhhhhh, but to add a little spiciness to the mix, each one of us is born into UNIQUE CIRCUMSTANCES, some are born to parents who are violent or neglectful. Some are born in bodies that are “challenging”. Whatever YOU have been given has TWO STORIES…THE CURSE or THE ADVENTURE.

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 someone else’s. (BREATHE)

Maria with Wayne Dyer

My beautiful husband, Doug and I went to see Wayne Dyer and Carolyn Myss speak live this past week in Boston. Wayne talked about how most of us are trained to live ORDINARY lives, which means you “fill out the forms, go to school, pay your taxes, buy a house, get married, have kids, get a “good” job, have grandkids and then die. Many people do it and there is nothing “wrong” with that if that is what YOU CHOOSE. The challenge is that most of us do not choose, but rather, we fall into it and SLEEPWALK, squished into the box of life we have been told we SHOULD HAVE. How’s that working for ya?

There is another choice you can make…gentle reminder to TAKE A DEEP BREATH…and that is to lead an EXTRA-ORDINARY life. You see, the “ordinary” is still in there, but by CHOOSING this life you get added adventure, purpose and meaning that most other people do not get. To get it, you have to ALLOW yourself to get out of your box.

First step is to notice…take a moment and notice what box you are in. Sounds a bit silly but lots of inspiration and awareness can come from moments of silliness! 😉 Notice YOUR BOX. What are the boundaries and parameters you put on yourself? How do you use words to KEEP yourself in your box? Can’t SEE your box…perhaps I can help…

Portuguese beaches are stunning! Here is the Algarve where I spent a lot of time as a kid! 🙂

Beautiful views everywhere in Portugal...land of my heart! 🙂

Play with me for a bit… if your dream is to take a dream trip to Portugal, for example…REALLY FEEL that for a moment. “Ohhhh I’d love to take a month long trip exploring Portugal.” Yup I said “a month”. Out of 12 whole months is it that “ridiculous” to say one of them is for you to relax and enjoy life? Notice what voices pop up and what they are saying. Go so far as to write them down, if you feel inspired.

Portugal has history everywhere you turn

Remember this is ONLY a PRETEND exercise and there is a part of you that is already getting LAMBASTED for simply DREAMING…..BIG BREATH here….and another.  The breath helps keep you moving, not breathing causes stress and stagnation. Taking a breath ALWAYS feels better. ☺ HOW you truthfully reacted to this exercise is a good mirror for how you keep your SELF in the box of the ordinary life most people live (without even realizing it).

For instructions on how to get out…bring awareness to your life. NOTICE what you are feeling and move TOWARDS what feels good and AWAY from what does not. Sounds simple, real simple…but how often do you REALLY listen to your own feelings? May 11-11-11 be the day you started NOTICING YOU! ☺!

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.

Are YOU Feeling The SHIFT Yet?

Hello Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

The power of a vision board to transform a life!

Start off with a very B-I-G,  L-U-S-C-I-O-U-S  B-R-E-A-T-H-E!  NICE  AND  S-L-O-W!!! MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

Are you remembering that you have been given the gift of a body? 😉 Are you remembering to “wiggle your toesies” and connect to the energy that is your birthright? Imagine the energy that comes from the center of the earth coming up and ridding your body of all its ICKIES. NOW, FEEL how very good that feels! AHHHHHHHHHH!

It was a full house at yesterday's ButterflyMoms workshop...WHAT AN AMAZING GROUP OF WOMEN!

If are reading these words right now YOU are part of the ButterflyMoms magic that little Sophia brought into this world. EVERYTHING happens for a reason. EVERYTHING is CONNECTED. How wonderful! 🙂 NOW, surround yourself with a silver suit that covers your whole body, including your face, feet, hands…every inch of you! This suit will protect you from other ICKIES that may want to attach to you. 😉

Learning how to protect yourself is very important because if you know how to do it you never have to ACTIVATE it until you need it. Being prepared allows you to be able to play in the world knowing you are safe! :)! THAT is a GREAT FEELING! 🙂 (side note: these are wonderful things to teach others from kids to your own parents…we could all use a little RE-CHARGE and PROTECTION!) 😉

Creating the life you want...

I’m noticing a GREAT shift! I’m noticing that people are really sensing that something is happening. You can definitely see it in how they are looking at the world. The year 2012 is a big, big SHIFT for human beings. Hollywood (much like for the fake Kardashian media-blitz wedding) has bastardized its significance with movies of the end of the world. In reality, it is simply a time where we will be moving into a deeper, more heart-centric way of existing in the world.

For the last centuries, white males have dominated the planet, raping and pillaging at historic rates. (For those white males who read ButterflyMoms take heart that this is a generalization but a true one based on history.) We are seeing the falls of banks. The financial sustainability of our planet is now tied to terms like GDP and new housing rates. Those things are based on making STUFF. Do we honestly NEED more STUFF? Really? Most Americans complain that CLUTTER in their lives is a major issue, yet the government still thinks that making for stuff is going to help. The shift is happening is affecting more and more people…for that is the whole point! The way we were making money is NOT sustainable. We were all working to pay the bills, most of us in jobs that we tolerated. The new model is unfolding right before our eyes….These are VERY EXCITING times to be alive!!!! So when you hear all the doom and gloom news just remind yourself that it’s all just a big shift…and CHANGE can be a scary thing for people. While they are busy freaking out they are missing the amazing gifts around them…some as simple as the littlest flower blooming in their garden, an incredible sunrise directly overhead, or even the beauty of being able to use your hands. It is the simple things that matter…and we as a society are starting to learn that! Some the easy way and others…. 😉

In honor of helping ButterflyMoms make the shift, we are dedicating the next Thursday night workshop on November 10th to HOW TO ATTRACT MORE MONEY INTO YOUR LIFE! 🙂

Great B-I-G hugs,

Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
