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!

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. 😉

Are You Feeling Lost?

IMG_2582Dearest ButterflyMoms,

Sometimes to be found we need to feel lost. Where we get even more lost is when we start freaking out. I’m going through that right now…

I have fallen deeper in love with Portugal. It is a much simpler life here. I have about 5% of the “stuff” here that I have in the States. We’re on a VERY tight budget, I have no car, no dependable cell phone and even so, except for not having my gorgeous husband and our son Christopher here, I’m as happy as a pig in shit.

I know that probably surprises some of you, because in a way it does me too, so I broke it down.

map of PortugalIt hit me hard when I came to the realization this past week that I’ve lived in America for over 43 years!!!! (Bear with me because inside I still think I’m about 16 so there is a part of me that can’t grasp 40 years of anything! 😉 ) On many levels I am truly the American dream. From kindergarten to graduate school I was educated in America. I’ve lived in Altlanta, Boston, New York and San Francisco. I’ve traveled extensively throughout the United States too and have even driven down both the East and the west coast a few times. I say this because I have seen a lot America and lived here long enough to get a very strong sense of what we are about.

Sister bonding and love!

Sister bonding and love!

IN GENERAL, there are two main reasons I’m being pulled to stay in Portugal for at least another year. One is the amazing weather here but it’s more than that, there is a magic in the air that, even with the economic crisis, makes this one of the most popular places in the world to visit and live. There is something cellular here that I love about the air, the trees, the water, the people, the food. I love that even in the dead of winter you can see flowers blooming all over the place! There is a lot of sunshine here and I love that! It’s one of those things we don’t think about but that affect us in profound ways. Because of this we go outside to walk or play most every day, even for just a few minutes. It is a fabulous way to connect to nature, each other, our bodies and our community!

Calling Papa and Christopher on Skype has made a huge difference.

Calling Papa and Christopher on Skype has made a huge difference.

The second difference between America and Europe is simply the way people live their lives. In America we truly believe that hard work is paramount and being “lazy” is one of the worst things you can be called. In Europe, in general, there is a natural order, a beginning and end of each workday. In the States there are way less lines of demarcation. Work and life are a blended blur. We live to work, but I don’t think we really see it. Being away for a whole year I see it now, and where I see it most is in my children…

My cousin, her grand daughter and our girls! Priceless!

My cousin, her grand daughter and our girls! Priceless!

My girls, especially our Olivia who has learning issues, is thriving here. It’s like the community has risen up at all levels to support them not in an overt way but in an inclusive way. They definitely believe in the “it takes a village” mentality so when kids do something that is unsafe some adult around them will immediately pipe in. There is ZERO concern for how it looks. It is simply how things are done. There is also a lot of tenderness, a kindness from the people. Kids are adored here.

Mother's Day Tradition... Breakfast in bed, one of my VERY favorite memories of this lifetime!

Olivia's skirt she made from plastic trash bags! GO OLIVIA!

Olivia’s skirt she made from plastic trash bags! GO OLIVIA!

The new school the girls are at is simply awesome! The level, depth and width of the subjects they are learning are amazing.

For example, today Mialotta, who is in third grade, for the first time today is using the camera she made in school. Olivia, who is in the first grade, had a fashion show last week in front of the whole school. The items the kids wore were made from recycled materials like newspapers, plastic bags, etc. Kids got crazy creative and Olivia won 1st place for her grade and 4th overall for the whole school. It was awesome! She was soooo excited to be acknowledged by all the big kids in her school!

International friends, amazing views... heaven.

International friends, amazing views… heaven. How’s this for lunch?

Even with all this said I still ADORE America and especially the people in it. I am completely torn. It gives me more of an insight of what my mom went through when she immigrated to the States.

When we don’t know what to do it’s important to stay open, keep breathing, keep letting go and being open to the messages that are being sent. I am vulnerable but I am happy and I know whatever happens I’m in love with my beautiful husband and children, and whatever we pick it will be perfect for the magical journey we are on!

Do Boundaries REALLY Matter?

Dearest BFMs,

THE SIGNIFICANCE OF TODAY…

Today is MAY 17 and it’s a VERY special day for several reasons:

*It’s the ButterflyMoms blog’s four year anniversary!!!

My VIP Badge which gave me the access to my dreams!  PRICELESS!

My VIP Badge which gave me the access to my dreams! PRICELESS!

*It’s the two year anniversary of being a guest on THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW!!!

My mom and I on my 1st birthday in Portugal.

My mom and me.

*It’s my Mama’s 76th birthday!!!

 

DO BOUNDARIES MATTER?…

Imagine that after an especially tough week one of your best friends  surprises you and says I’m taking you to your FAVORITE restaurant anywhere in the world! You pack your bags and head to the airport! Arrangements for your children have already been made so you are all covered there too. There is a beautiful limousine to pick you up and drop you off at the airport. You have a wonderful time on the plane catching up with your friend and feeling like a queen after the on-flight massage, pedicure and manicure (hey, we can all dream, right 🙂

When you land a limousine is waiting for you and your friend. It whisks you to your favorite restaurant. It’s the kind of place that has 8 courses of the most scrumptious food anyone has EVER tasted. Just reading the menu makes your mouth water. Take a moment to think of your FAVORITE foods. They have ALL of them, exactly like you like them! You and your friend order. As the servers begin bringing in the wonderful dishes you take each one and stick it in the blender in front of you. As soon as every dish is regally delivered to you, you turn on the blender and let it do its thing.  Drink up, right?

WHAT?!!!! WAIT!!!! If someone gifted you with this experience is that how you would want to eat this fabulous banquet? NO???? Then why would you do it with the way you life your life? When we live a life without boundaries that is exactly what we are doing. Even if each piece is perfect, without limits and boundaries it becomes basically GUNK!

Ask yourself if you are living a GUNKY life! If the answer is yes then take your first step and acknowledge it. Being “mind-full” is paramount. Just like if you’ve ever meditated (or tried to ;), it’s all about GENTLY bringing your attention BACK TO AWARENESS. AWARENESS is your gate-keeper. It is built into you. It’s is one of the gifts you get when you are born. Those who use it have a much “fun-er-er” time on this planet! Don’t miss out on the fun! How are you feeling right now? Sit with whatever feelings come up. Never judge. Just feel. Just be. Wherever you are is exactly where you need to be. You are safe. Feel and let go. Feelings come from somewhere, bottling up or ignoring those feeling cause the death of your soul. Chew on that! 😉 (Pun intended!)

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!!!!!

Simple “FORMULA” For Being HAPPY!!!!!

DSCN6552Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

Every guru in the world will tell you the secret to living a truly happy life is…. (drum roll)… to live in the moment. Ok, seems easy enough, but most of us find it almost impossible. We get so frustrated, in fact, that many of us start “doing” or “buying” a lot of other “stuff” so we can distract ourselves!

I’m in a phase where I SEE my life’s purpose. I KNOW what it is with every fiber of my body and it fills me with SUCH joy when I do this work of bridging people from the old ways of fear into the new ways of living from love! At the end of every coaching call or workshop I feel and see how powerful my work is and I am humbled by how very amazing it feels… to everyone!!!! This is simply what I was born to do!!!!!!! (Side note: Many people ask me, “How do you know it’s ‘right’ for you?” Well, how you know is that it feels good, the kind of feel good that leaves you fuller and lighter at the same time!)

DSCN6385To get to this point of knowing my calling (just got a flash from the first Matrix movie) there had to have been a lot of living in the moment because that is where ALL of your life’s juice is. Projecting into the future or living in the past are destructive tools of the ego and fear. They are draining and dangerous to your life’s light and cause a great “heaviness”. Those who lead incredible lives have learned to juice up by living in the present moment.

It is truly simple to live in the present moment if you don’t make it too complex or big. The challenge is that we start our day attached to our SHOULDs (what should/needs to get done today) and our TO DO LISTS. Here in Portugal, and in Europe, in general, people don’t live so much like that, yet they still get things done. The secret is that they live a lot more in the moment. They stop even for ten minutes, for example, and connect with their neighbors at their local café. In America, we tend to go to get our “fix”, not to connect. See the difference?

Living in the moment is really the most rewarding thing you can ever do because it’s like being on a vacation all the time. Think about it. Those people who go on vacation do so because they want to escape their lives. Just like those people who live for the weekend. I don’t know about you, but time is precious so being ok with hating most of your life is not how I want to live! When you live in the moment you begin to understand that you are in a dance with the universe, always getting valuable feedback that allows you to self-correct and live happy. We resonate best, live our best, happiest lives when we vibrate at this level. There is nothing more powerful than that.

Sometimes I'm soooo into the doing that I forget to do it with JOY so being HAPPY is my main goal of 2013. Many people think that is nuts but because it is so basic, many of us assume wrongly that we already are. I was one of those people.

Sometimes I’m soooo into the doing that I forget to do it with JOY so being HAPPY is my main goal of 2013. Many people think that is nuts but because it is so basic, many of us assume wrongly that we already are. I was one of those people.

Yesterday, I was writing my book and kept being interrupted by my adorable five year old, Isabella, whom I did not see as adorable at the time 😉 Instead of fighting it, I went with it. I surprised her by grabbing the colorful sticky notes in front of me and my magical big-girl pens. We started writing and drawing and giving her my FULL attention. She was in heaven. I was in heaven. We stuck notes on each other and had moments of long hugs and kisses as she sat on my lap, looking into my eyes and smiling. It was in those precious moments that I drank in her waning littleness and touched upon how quickly it all goes. It brought me so much joy that my heart almost burst out of my chest. Funny thing was that it did not last hours. It lasted the perfect amount of time and when it was done I had plenty of space (and inspiration) to write and Isabella was glowing with the fact her mommy had seen and loved her in a way that she felt completely loved and safe. Imagine that! Win-win!

The ugly truth is that I’ve been through phases in my life where I have resented my children. I am shocked by this even as I write it because I became a mom later in life and dreamed of having children for such a long time! The truth is that many parents hide this resentment on one level for fear of how it will look/sound, but in the meantime their ability to parent erodes. They begin hurting the very people they love the most. Let’s not judge, let’s acknowledge, know we are doing the best we can with what we have and move to a more PRESENT place. The simple fact is that when you are not taking care of yourself, which includes time JUST FOR YOU, you are unable to be a good parent, or have the happy life you see for yourself. That’s all there is to it!

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

CRAVING SUNSHINE !

WEATHER Storms 3Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

It has been a long winter for many. Spring seems to be taking its sweet time getting here. It’s already April but for many places it is still very rainy and cold. Lack of sunshine can wreak havoc on our energy levels. It is something subtle but if you were to check in you see that it really affects you on a very basic and deep level. No matter what all the sunscreen corporations want you to believe, we humans REALLY NEED to be in direct sunlight. It feels good to your whole being… body, mind and, yes, even your soul.

snowHere in Portugal, it’s been rather rainy lately. We here are a Mediterranean culture for which the sun is intimately woven in our lives. When there is a disruption to that relational flow of warmth, people really feel it here.

Today, the sun was out and it was absolutely wonderful to see the amount of people, families, dogs, kids, bikes, kites, surfers, yogi’s… were out playing with nature today. Seems like too basic of a thing to notice but, for me, it was a lesson in gratitude all day long. I was so happy all day long because every time I stopped and took time to look at people’s faces, I would see the absolute joy radiating from their eyes. MAGICAL if you are on the “channel” to “feel” it!

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

HOW TO MOVE THROUGH YOUR PAIN…

photos of choicepoint 1Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

I’ve been avoiding writing this one particular blog entry all day long because last week’s was so powerful. The powerful part does not bother me, in fact, I love that almost 2,000 people read it in just one week! From the feedback it seems that it was a wonderful way to honor my beautiful friend Aida, 45 who died suddenly last week of a heart attack at the beginning of her yoga class.

STUNNING AIDA, A BEAUTY FROM THE INSIDE OUT!

STUNNING AIDA, A BEAUTY FROM THE INSIDE OUT!

Besides missing my dear friend Aida, my heart breaks for those who have also unexpectedly lost loved ones. With each of the deaths in my life, I’ve gotten closer to realizing that death does not have to be this way.

Many of us have grown up with the concept of a “heaven”. When Sophia, our beautiful one year old angel died, many said to me things like, “At least she is in a better place.” The more I think about this response, the more I realize that most people don’t really “face” death so whatever they are told about it they blindly believe. If they can avoid it all together they do… and I don’t blame them. If you grew up in a culture/family/world where death was what you did to criminals who commit heinous crimes then WHY WOULD YOU EVER have a positive idea of death!?! From the moment we are born we are warned to avoid death… “Be careful because this, that or the other can kill you!”

A week before she died our beautiful Sophia on her 1st birthday! I just LOVE looking at her beautiful face!!!!!

A week before she died our beautiful Sophia on her 1st birthday! I just LOVE looking at her beautiful face!!!!!

When Sophia died my whole world order blew up! SHATTERED! Things I too blindly believed were no longer possible to believe. The thing about death is that it makes you or breaks you.

At first, for most of us, it breaks us… breaks our hearts, to be exact. I did not want to feel the pain. It was so bad that felt like I wanted to peel my skin right off. The knowledge that my child had died was too much for my brain to wrap around. I treasured the moment I would temporarily focus on something else and dreaded the horror of the moments of re-remembering, painfully observing that part of me that thought it was just a dream… and realizing that it was not. The pain is absolutely horrific. I would not wish it on my least favorite person! It is big enough to contemplate taking your own life. (pause) Yes, it is that intensely painful.

If you are going through the grieving process for Aida or anyone else, I would like to help you. I ask that you first get to a place where you can hear/read this with as much focus as you can muster. Energetically, grieving is a massive leak of energy on your part, that is one of the reasons you feel like shit! Although there are many, many leaks of energy, the biggest leak usually comes from:

  1.  The guilt of not having done something different that would have changed the outcome of the situation (the death). It’s the “LAND OF IF ONLY’S”. Example, “If only I had not _________________ she would not have been in that car.”
  1. The non-acceptance of the death. This is when you hear people say some version of, “No, no! This cannot be happening. No! I cannot believe ________ died!”

These two will get you into one of the biggest un-alignments a human can experience. There is ZERO joy in either of these scenarios. The energy is just leaking out so thinking about leaving the body is not a surprise because energetically to the body it feels like the energy is leaving and not being replenished. Being in this space for a while is common, especially in our culture. It is a natural part of the mourning process. Unfortunately, many people can live in this energy-draining space for a very long time.

Julia Cameron

“The trick is to metabolize pain as energy.  The key to doing that is to know, to trust, and to act as if a silver lining exists if you are only willing to look at the work differently or walk through a different door.”

~ Julia Cameron

The simplest way to stop the energy leaking is to ask the simple question, “WHAT IS THE GIFT?” Yes, I’m asking you to ask the most absurd question but I can promise you that this question works. It’s the question that I heard on the Oprah Show 11 years before Sophia’s death and the moment she died that question popped into my head and rolled around in there over and over and over again. I now see that the reason the question is so powerful. It unlocks the GRATITUDE and LOVE, two of the most POWERFUL ENERGY FILLERS for your soul.

IMG_8613We are spirits here on the earth school. Our bodies belong to this realm but our souls do not. LOVE does not die. It lives on. The sooner we get back into alignment with our LOVE for our departed, the sooner we feel them around us again, sure in a completely different form but still there, REALLY STILL THERE! The grief prevents us from feeling fully sensing them. There is a better way to accept death, a healthier way. I want to thank all those who have passed in my life, especially: Maria de Lurdes, Mandy, Derry, Joscelyn, Nancy, Aida and Sophia. I thank you for the gifts your lives and deaths have given me… and still I miss hugging you!

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

OMG! WHAT HAVE NICK AND SHERYL STARTED?

half the sky2Dearest ButterflyMoms,

When you sit down to read this blog you never know what is coming because the flavor is different each time. There are times when I sit down to write when I wish I could give you the power of ULTRA LASER FOCUS to drop away all the other distractions in your life and see directly from your heart… This is that post!

Today, is International Women’s Day. Being a “woman” is something that for most of us is something we completely take for granted. We simply don’t pay a lot of attention to this part of ourselves. How many days do you wake up and think about being a WOMAN? Might seem like an odd question but much of how you live your life is deeply based on how you perceive your gender. What you were taught, as well as what you rejected form how you let yourself be treated, what you are willing to accept and what you will reach out for!

Most of the people who read my blog are of a certain educational level. By that I mean that you at least need to be able to read (and in English) and have access to electricity and a computer. Most of the world’s women still don’t have the simple opportunity to even learn, to be safe, to not be cut, to own land, to have a voice. Those commercials of half-naked brown babies screaming in pain asking for us to sponsor them for the price of a cup of coffee have jaded us. Most of us change the channel. I know I do because I don’t connect to it.

Half the Sky_0At Christmas time we have all at one time or other sent or received cards that with PEACE ON EARTH printed over an idyllic holiday scene or pics of your ever-growing cute kids, but what do we do to create PEACE ON EARTH? There is no peace without safety, food, shelter first. The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world. Well if a large number of the women of our planet do not have access to these three things our entire world is BROKEN. The deep pain and misery that reverberates from that brokenness is our world today.

Sure you feel it and it feels icky, but really “What does this have to do with you?” We are all one. We are all connected. No real peace can come to you when our entire planet is this type of crisis mode. THERE IS NO “THEM”! THERE IS ONLY “US” and “WE”. Our whole planet is energetically shifting and we can all feel it reverberating. If you are still trying to HOLD on to the old paradigm you are having a REALLY HARD time because those “rules” no longer fit emotionally, physically, psychologically or energetically.

half the skyA book that will absolutely change your world is HALF THE SKY. It is a book that will help you live a more authentic life! Do yourself a favor and give yourself the gift of watching the trailer….http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRfDzznfEOU from there here are things things you can do even if you may have little money and or time but there are ways you can make a difference…

  1. WORK ON YOU – the best way to make the world a better place is to start working on yourself. Now some will say that we are already perfect and there is nothing to work on and that is true, except that we take that perfection and add shit to it that adulterates (hey, do you like me dropping in my 6th grade vocabulary word, eh? Mrs. Grambolini would be proud! 😉 our life’s joy. Joy is a current that never stops in our life, we just drop SHOULD boulders on it and cut off our happiness.
  2. HELP THE “CONVERSATION” GO VIRAL – If you can see the entire movie. If you can’t just share the clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRfDzznfEOU on all your social media sites. Share this blog and help get the word out. Call one good friend that you have been meaning to call anyway, grab a tea and even from your different locations watch it together wherever you both are. Talk about it, which leads me to #3…
  3. PLAY WITH IT (BIRTH CHANGE) INTO THE WORLD – Pick one action item to accomplish or organization to support. Energetically you will rejuvenate your whole life! It can be something easy. It just has to feel really good to you!

halfI part with this beautiful song sent to me by a woman, Kate Lamontagne who does an incredible job at building community in a little, beautiful New England town in Holliston, Massachusetts in the United States of America. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Dnq2QeCvwpw#!

half the sky 1WHAT 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!!!!!

Let me ask you a personal question…DO YOU PUT OUT?

My published article in the fabulous INTERNATIONAL WOMEN IN PORTUGAL publication!

My published article in the fabulous INTERNATIONAL WOMEN IN PORTUGAL publication!

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

where to buy nolvadex without prescription

 

First some rockin’ news! I AM SOOOO EXCITED! Yesterday I found out that I just got an article [“Your (quick and easy) Guide to Energy Therapies] published in “A JANELA”, the International Women In Portugal’s (IWP) global newsletter, Spring Edition! It is read by an international group of the most amazing women, not only in Europe but also in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, South America, Canada, etc. I’m honored! It deeply fills my heart with so much joy to share energy work with people! I love getting chances like this one to live my life’s purpose of IGNITING PEOPLE’s SOULS! I’m giddy with joy!!!! Now onto this week’s ButterflyMoms blog… THANK YOU for popping in! <3!

 

We are more than halfway done with our year in Portugal and it is a very bittersweet time. There have been times in my life where I wish I could stop the clock and luxuriate in that very moment in time. Wishing for such things only wastes time but I cannot seem to help myself. The answers will come. They always do, meanwhile it’s good to stay as open as I know how. There are MANY ways to stay open. One of my favorites is in the middle of lots of ICKY thoughts simply sit back and from that “bubble of ickiness” and start looking at the world looking for beauty. Literally ask yourself the question, “Where is something beautiful in this room?” Energetically that shifts you from LEAKING energy back to filling your “container” with pure love energy. Another way of filling up your energetic container is through YOGA!!!!!!

Although I first started doing yoga back in the 1900’s ;), I have recently started doing yoga on a more regular basis again. Today, I was searching on YouTube for yogic music, which creates the atmosphere I love when I don’t have a teacher there to guide me. I came across this breath-giving video clip of one of my very favorite artists, MC Yogi, who I first heard about when I was in energy medicine school. Give yourself a FREE treat for your eyes, ears and soul… http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=K_74_qL8ErE#!

 

In one of his songs MC Yogi asks a question about LOVE, but not as MUSHY, KISS-KISS, SHACK-UP, GET-MARRIED way (which is from an emptiness desperately looking to be filled) but from a HOW DO YOU SERVE THE WORLD way (which is from a how to you give out into the world and that giving fills you – regardless if it is returned or not).

It is another form of the question that America’s beloved and controversial 35th president John F. Kennedy asked, “My Fellow Americans ask not what your country can do for you — ask what can you do for your country.” But then, he went on to a lesser known line, “My fellow citizens of the world, ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.” Here is the clip to help you feel what you are reading… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLdA1ikkoEc

OMG! JFK was having a zen moment, well as “zen” as you could in the early 60’s! Sure it was sexist and American-centric but he was speaking at the highest level that he and the mainstream culture around him could handle. He was also speaking about LOVE! President Kennedy was calling the citizens of the world to unite!

 

I understand there were other political factors/layers going on at the time, but I can clearly see there something hit our cultural psyche for this quote to have survived and to still be recognizable over 50 years later. Especially in the American culture where history and geography are our some of our weakest subjects.  There is something energetically compelling there…

… and it started me thinking!

 

So you combine MC Yogi’s short video clip and that of President Kennedy and you have today’s ButterflyMoms assignment for you… It is simple, just a 27-step Assignment…(BAH HAH HA!) Just kidding! It is just a small question…

 

The divine Miss Olivia! :)

The divine Miss Olivia! 🙂

Ask yourself,

How much love

can I put out

into the world

in this moment?

 

Write it down so you can read it to yourself over and over. Post it in your car, wallet, office, toilet paper holder, fridge, sink, night stand. Use it on your kids. Use it in traffic (you know who you are! 😉 Use it with your family. Use it at work. Use it when looking for work. Use it when you are paying your bills. Use it when you are kissing someone. Use it when you are grocery shopping. Use it when you are about to eat. Use it when you are about to cheat on yourself. Use it when you are about to drink. Use it when you are about to do something you dislike. Use it when you are about to do something you love. Use it when you are mad or disappointed at someone. USE IT ALL UP!

 

Great big hugs,

Mariaaaaaaaaaa

🙂

 

 

Soooooo much LOVE that even when Doug went running along the Atlantic Ocean, he sweats in hearts... totally true photo. The second I saw it I asked him to hold his shirt and took the photo.

Is It Too Late For You?

At Lisbon Airport saying good-bye to Vovo (“granny” in Portuguese)

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

Successful people, just like successful businesses, know EXACTLY who they are, who they serve and what their goals are. Without knowing these things a lot of time gets spent trying to figure out which fire to put out and simply re-inventing the wheel. In other words there is a lot of constant chaos. As many of us know it is completely exhausting to live this way!

If we don’t know what we stand for, we spend our whole lives sitting and waiting for the “right ___________” (fill in the blank)

a) time   b) opportunity  c) job  d) mate  e) sign  f) qualifications   g) person   h) amount of money.

On my list is to spend more time with the people who make my heart sing and feed my soul! :)

On my list is to spend more time with the people who make my heart sing and feed my soul! 🙂

We are all guilty of this at some point in our lives. It is a fabulous way to increase the pain in your life, if you are into that! So if you are into that keep on truckin’! If you want “better”, and chances are that if you are reading this you do indeed want better, here is a way you can do “better”…

Part of what I like to do, regardless if you are my coaching client or not, is to ignite your soul! Next week is already March and if you have not yet done your life design for 2013 here is your second chance. It’s easier than you think. In order for you to stop chasing your tail, and start living your life from total alignment, take a precious few minutes and answer the following five simple questions…

 

*  WHAT TRULY FEEDS YOUR SOUL? 

 

*  WHAT DO YOU WANT TO LEARN? 

 

*  WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH? 

 

*  WHAT DO YOU WANT TO GIVE? 

 

*  WHAT DO YOU WANT TO RECEIVE?

Isabella drew this at age 4 here in Portugal. Artists run in her dad’s side of the family. Her grandfather, Herb, was the head of the Metropolitan Museum of Fine Art in NY. He did the King Tut exhibit! :)!

Answer them right now because this blog self-destructs for you in 30 minutes from when you first read it. (Ok, it really doesn’t but if you act like it will, the sense of urgency will override any of life’s dangly-annoying-get-you-nowhere to do’s. So just do it within 30 minutes).

Use markers, pretty pens, fun paper and have a blast writing your unique answers. Please don’t filter because that crushes your creativity, just write whatever comes and then go back and give your answers a little shape. Once you have your top answers, find a fun way to put them into your calendar. Start the little steps that will get you to the life you dream… it does not happen any other way. Whatever you focus on you will get more of. Full stop (as the Brits say)!

Biking and moving my body more with my kids are also on my list for 2013!

Biking and moving my body more with my kids are also on my list for 2013! This is what January looks like in Portugal! NICE!!!!!!

The end of 2013 is going to come any way. It will either come with you having done this or with you not. Which life would you prefer? Don’t tell me… just go out and live it! We will know what you chose by looking at your life! 🙂

Great big hugs,

Mariaaaaaaaaaa
