If you want to be happy…STOP Avoiding Self-Care!

Maria for Self-Care videoblogHello Beautiful CMM Community of Hearts,

I just got back from an incredible weekend with an amazing group of women including Dr. Christiane Northrup! More to come about that in later weeks but for now it’s important that her message is about self-care. I highly recommend her book, Ageless Goddess.

As I’ve been having crazy ‘panic attacks’ that I realize are ‘energy surges/downloads’. They are helping take the necessary steps to slow down, meditate more, drink more water, take yoga, dance (Qoya), asking, sleeping, eating mindfully… It’s creating SUCH amazing miracles in my life… and life IS MIRACULOUS!

If you want to find your miracles, start by taking care of yourself because it is the number one way to:

1. Be Healthy

2. Be Happy

3. Live an Inspired Life

4. Influence Others in Positive Ways

5. Be Able To Here Your Intuition

Without taking care of yourself… Hold on. Do I really need to list those things? Hmmmmm? Just look around you. There’s an epidemic of lack of self-care going on out there, and sometimes, in here, in ourselves. If you don’t Set the Intention to take care of yourself you very easily slip into the Land of Normal, where most people are unhappy, numbing out and asleep in their lives (even though many have trouble actually sleeping, which is interesting.) May this video ignite your heart! …https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3ClBl9Jk7Q

Remember that LIFE IS RIGGED IN YOUR FAVOR… Rumi

Great big hugs,

Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

🙂

PS It’s easier to practice self-care if those closest to you do too so share this video blog with them and help them live happier lives too!

When Your Life Sucks, Do This…

Hello Beautiful Coach Me Maria Family!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for coming to feed yourself again this week! Today’s topic is part of the research for my book. It is an incredibly simple tool that is what the most successful people in the world from Billionaires to Mother Teresa have used without even knowing it… ANCHORS. To find out what an anchor is watch the video.

When you combine an affirmation with a strong anchor you get…. pure hell… or pure magic… it all depends on what you FOCUS on. Most of us are domesticated into seeing the ICKY first. That is living out of alignment. It buries our dreams.

This short video will help you shift back into your magic and show you how you, your friends and your family can use the simple tool of an anchor to build the life you have dreamed about… because that is the life your heart is holding for you. How do I know? Well, how do you think that dream got to you? 😉

Hello Again Dear Heart!

Last week we talked about the world going through major changes. Those major changes are causing A LOT OF STRESS. Seems like instead of S-L-O-W-I-N-G  D-O-W-N we are trying to go faster and faster as we cram in more and more “stuff” into our lives! The signs are all around us but we ignore them by continuing the behaviors that cause even more stress.

This pressure cooker living leads to many negative things like lots of discord, feeling horrible, weight gain, rapid aging and insomnia. We in America are so stressed out that although we are only 4.6% of the world’s population we take 80% of the world’s prescription drugs! Wha-wha-what!?

Yes, we are indeed in the middle of a huge wake-up call… Listening to these fantabulous short but sweet COACH ME MARIA videos shifts your life more into living from your heart’s core! Going back to listening to your intuition, your internal GPS is the best way to create alignment with your life’s purpose. Stress is your body’s way of letting you know you are out-of-alignment and if you don’t hear the message, it will simply get “louder” and “louder”!

STRESS IS MEANT TO BE TEMPORARY! It runs your body in overdrive. This is not only not how the body was meant to be used, it’s also DANGEROUS! Give yourself the gift today of slowing down long enough to watch this 2 minute video so you can be reminded to claim your REAL LIFE back!

Remember that life is rigged in your favor!

How Do I Protect Myself From ENERGY VAMPIRES?

HERE’s TODAY’s VIDEO…

Click here for view TODAY’s Coaching VIDEO…

Hello Dear Heart!

Thank you so very much for tuning in! It’s been a while since I’ve done a video blog but so many have been asking that I’m starting them up again! These video blogs are FREE COACHING directly for you! Tune in every Tuesday for the summer to help keep you releasing the blocks and move into alignment with your dream manifesting and life’s purpose work. Now onto today’s blog…

dramatic out of nothingThe world is going through some major changes. It’s on most every level from individual to global. There is feedback everywhere that is getting louder and LOUDER! In the last month for example there’s been an increase in panic attacks, anxiety, ringing in ears, vertigo, etc. If you are paying attention we are definitely shifting.

We humans have been living as if we could exist outside of the natural flow of how the world works. As a species we’ve so focused on the fear of not having enough or of being safe that we are now in a HUGE pickle. The biggest problem seems to be that most people either feel completely powerless to do anything or want to argue that there is no problem… DUDE, IF YOUR HOUSE IS ON FIRE, doing nothing except arguing whether or not to call the fire department, will get you into a hot mess. 😉

Energy Vampires... I vant to suck your energyOn an individual level the way we use our energy is very important. Just like our physical body needs a constant flow of air, our energetic body needs a flow of energy. We get both of those flows naturally, unless we block it. The blocks in the energetic body cause people to look for energy from other people, and that is how energy vampires are created… Oh, and People either drain or inspire youdon’t fool yourself by pointing fingers at others! We are all energy vampires at some point because of how we have all been domesticated into a world that tries to shut off our intuition and tell us the “RIGHT WAY” to live life… How’s that worken’ for ya, eh? 😉

We’re in the middle of a huge wake-up call… Listening to these videos will help you shift your life more into living from your heart’s core, back to listening to your intuition, your internal GPS. The road is bumpy… HOWEVER…If you’re living out of alignment, it’s WAY harder to live like you are now!

WHY DO I KEEP REPEATING THE SAME PATTERN…Even When It Hurts!?

Hello Beautiful Coach Me Maria Peeps!

Welcome to the fourth video blog of this exciting CMM series! Today’s topic is one that drives most of us C-R-A-Z-Y!!! Today’s question is… WHY-OH-WHY-WHY DO WE KEEP REPEATING THE SAME PATTERNS… OVER AND OVER…EVEN WHEN THEY ARE PAINFUL… OR MAKE NO SENSE!?

This is one of those topics that can drive people insane. If it were only a matter of doing what made sense then it would be easy to adjust, but that’s not the case with most people. This is when lots of blame happens because people BLAME and SHOULD all over themselves. A bit of kindness, letting go and forgiveness goes a long way in these circumstances. I specifically make this and the other videos in this series short so you can get a lot in a short amount of time. Take a moment now to find out how your patterns are making you stuck by watching today’s video.

THANK YOU! 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 right now! 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, coaching is a really great solution! Call or email me for a life-shifting session! <3

What is REIKI?

Hello Beautiful!

Welcome to the third video blog of this series! Today’s topic is one that even hospitals are starting to pay attention to. Today’s question is… WHAT IS REIKI?

Two weeks ago, I had my first surgery at Newton-Wellesley Hospital in Newton, Massachusetts. I was delighted to find that they offered Reiki to patients who requested it. I had a wonderful time explaining what Reiki was to some of the nurses who were on the fence about it. Reiki is such an interesting experience because many time it does not even need you to psychically touch the person. This is because our energy is not just physical. You can “feel” it through other sensors too. We as human being are going through a huge awakening and the becoming open to that energy is part of the journey that allows us a ticket to ride in helping bring more peace and love to our selves and our planet!

As a Reiki Master Teacher, I choose to lead small Reiki trainings because for most people, playing with their energy is something new and different. Having the space to safely explore makes a huge difference. The people who learn Reiki from me are mean and women from all different backgrounds, ages and professions. They have included moms, dads, hospice nurses, ministers, personal trainers, massage therapists, attorneys, grandmothers, special needs therapists and teachers. Many tend to be attracted to helping people and they are curious about how Reiki can help them aid on a deeper level. It does my heart good to see my Reiki students come back and report how they are using the energy they’ve always had to truly help others!

For those who live near Holliston, MA we have a REIKI SHARE we do as a community service. Basically a Reiki Share is when a group of people who know how to do Reiki get together and give Reiki for free as a gift to the community. The people who are receiving the Reiki make a small donation, in our case 100% of the money goes to the local food pantry. The next one is February 3, 2015. It’s only a $5 donation but you must sign up so we can make sure we have enough Reiki people present. Sign up here now.

For those of you who want to learn Reiki you can get more information about Reiki trainings at http://coachmemaria.com/events/.

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”!

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!

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!

HOW TO EASILY MANIFEST A GREAT JOB!

Sun in sand summer vacationHappiness is an inside jobDearest BFMs,

For most of us summer has finally arrived! When we are kids summer is a fantastic time to really play! No school, just play and hang out! When we “grow up” things tend to be very different. For most of us, even though the warm weather beckons us, there is a lot less playing during the summers.

I have always found it pretty obscene how “vacation” time is considered a luxury. It’s almost as if “normal” is working and taking time to re-charge is only for those who have seniority. We all know that when we are depleted we do half-hearted work so why this game?

Living over in Europe you definitely see the difference! People here still work but they usually have a much better life/work balance. With the expansion of American ideals and the economic situation here that has shifted a bit, but it is still very balanced.

summer vacationSo when we are in school we have lots of vacation time, lots. Besides the random holidays that working (outside the house) adults get too, there are also the one-two weeks off for winter and then again at spring break. There is also time off for Thanksgiving and of course, the much coveted SUMMER VACATION. I have to admit that because I was a student for such a long time (… if you include my preschool, undergrad, MBA I was in school for twenty-one years! That is almost half my life!) that I found it almost impossible to be locked up in a cubicle with no outside air for the ENTIRE YEAR with the exception of one or two weeks off a year!!!!! I don’t think I’m the only one who thinks that might be somewhat unbalanced.

Americans, in general, accumulate vacation time to use one magical day that never comes. Think about that. Think of how that affects the whole country that individuals are not taking care of themselves. No judgement just noticing

I love my jobSo, today, I bring up the sticky subject of your JOB. I know there are lots of people out there without jobs but that kind of thinking is pretty fear-based. It is important to be grateful for what you have… absolutely… but, as the posted quote in yesterday’s Butterfly Moms group on Facebook read… “You can’t find happiness at the end of your journey if you don’t bring it with you all along.”

Is your job feeding your soul or sucking you dry? If you are feeling icky around this just let yourself feel it… notice you don’t die. Notice that those feelings last a lot longer if you block them, and if the ickies are coming up now, chances are that you have been blocking them. The fastest way to get sick is to block your flow. You know this. I’m not telling you anything new. You might just have been burying it… that has consequences even if you pretend it does not. No matter how icky it feels I invite you to let it wash over you and let it leak out into the grass. Imagine all that “shit” fertilizing all the plants around you. You’re holding all that in serves NO ONE and NO THING!

JOB1If you think about your JOB and you start feeling happy then it is not just giving you money, it is also feeding your soul! This is possible for all of us… just need to 1) Notice  2) Strongly Visualize  3)Feel How Good It Feels  4) Let It Go (knowing you have set the wheels in motion)… Repeat at least daily… and watch what happens! <3

Summer is a time to get lighter and happier. The sun is shining. The days are longer. It is a wonderful time to let go of what is not working and so that what is meant to come in will come in!

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 Friday Morning, as a way of honoring her daughter Sophia’s soul, Maria writes the weekly BUTTERFLYMOMS BLOG. Hundreds of people read it every week to feed their souls. Maria started writing the blog in May 2009 and has written EVERY Friday since. Maria is a Reiki master and every time you read it you are showered with healing love.  Tell your friends… http://butterflymoms.wordpress.com and spread the love!!! FEED YOUR SOUL!!!!!

Use your voice…

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

DO YOU FEEL OLD?

Cutie pie Christopher

Cutie pie Christopher…

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

how much is prednisone

I had a couple of “REALITY CHECKS”, that I’d love to return! 😉 Ahhhh but you know life… the more you resist the shittier your time will be. It’s ALWAYS best to go with the flow.

..has grown up into this beautiful young man!

..has grown up into this beautiful young man!

TIME MARCHES ON…

Our youngest is 5 years old and our oldest Christopher will be 18 next month. Our son Christopher had his last day of high school this past week on May 29th, my birthday. When you have a child that reaches this age there is a part of you that feels a bit like being IN SHOCK because we cannot believe how quickly it all went. They say the days are long and the years are short and ain’t that the truth!

A BIRTHDAY HUM DINGER…

Well, for my birthday this past week, since I LOVE sushi, a beautiful friend of mine took me out for a sushi lunch by the ocean. I wish you had been there to see this view! WOW! I LOVE looking out onto the water! What I did not like was the interaction with our waitress (translated from Portuguese because the meaning is not lost in translation)…

Waitress: “Ahhh, it’s your birthday! Congratulations! How old are you?”

Me: “I’m 46.”

Waitress: “Wait, did you say ‘36’ or ‘46’?

Me: “46”

Waitress: “Oh”

ARGH! Even as it’s coming out of my mouth it sounds odd. Could I REALLY be that old? I honestly feel more like I’m 36 but I’m a million years away from where I was when I was 36.

mirror mirror off the wallMIRROR, MIRROR…

I know it’s not politically correct to say this but I don’t like mirrors!

I believe there is a conspiracy going on and maybe you have experienced it too? I have lately noticed that ALL mirrors MUST not be working properly because every time I look into one I see someone staring back at me who is MUCH older than I feel. I have to admit it shocks me how much different I look than I feel.

It’ is then that I notice how being young and beautiful is such a part of what I bought into. Wrinkles, sags, lines… I never really got why people got upset at those… until now.  I’m still working on this one. No answers today, I’m afraid. Just putting it out there that I’m feeling it too in case you think you are the only one. 😉

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 Friday Morning, as a way of honoring her daughter Sophia’s soul, Maria writes the weekly BUTTERFLYMOMS BLOG. Hundreds of people read it every week to feed their souls. Maria started writing the blog in May 2009 and has written EVERY Friday since. Maria is a Reiki master and every time you read it you are showered with healing love.  Tell your friends… http://butterflymoms.wordpress.com and spread the love!!! FEED YOUR SOUL!!!!!
