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 has written the weekly BUTTERFLYMOMS BLOG which has of July 2013 also turned into a video blog. Hundreds of people have 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.

HERE WE GO 2013! What’s in it for you?

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

 

This is the first blog in 2012. It is also the 201st original ButterflyMoms blog ever written!!! 🙂 I am super proud of that because I’m one of those people who starts so many things that many don’t get completely “done”.

 

+wonderfulWriting the ButterflyMoms blog “stuck” because I LINKED it to the memory of my daughter Sophia and used it as a way to honor her memory… in a way it’s a way I still get to be her mama… Over the years, because of this love she and I have for each other, I have been inspired to write at least once a week for the last four years, no matter what…pregnancies, wiping butts, deaths, illnesses, travel, lack of sleep, work, kids, housework, clients, business deals…somehow…. Because I attached a HUGE HUGE HUGE MEANING to my WHY of doing it. So inside my head it feels like this…

 

Each Friday morning I have a plan to write the beloved ButterflyMoms blog… Some weeks my brain/ego kicks in and starts “reminding” me of all the “stuff” I “should” be doing. I immediately start feeling the pressure of how many things need to be tended to. Being overwhelmed creates a sort of shut-down process with me starting to move away from my task of writing and more into the JUNK OF LIVING from MY TO DO LIST instead of from MY HEART.

 

The ButterflyMoms blog is different for me though because it as soon as a hit a certain level of distance from doing it, the FEAR of not doing it kicks in which OVERRIDES the downward decline. I feel a surge of adrenaline and move straight-away into energetically and psychically making ‘finishing the blog’ the number one priority of that day. Now sometimes it takes two hours and sometimes it takes thirteen but once I start I ALWAYS FINISH! I cannot even imagine not finishing, really. No two blogs are ever “birthed” the same way but the amount of energy I am given gives me the “fuel” to finish it EVERY time.

 

It is a miraculous experience with so many gifts. I am deeply honored that soooooo many people over the years have read and loved the ButterflyMoms blog. You are obviously one of those people, so no matter where you are in the world, my deepest gratitude goes out to you! :)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

How does today’s ButterflyMoms blog relate to you? Well, if you are reading this there is at least one lesson in here for you. What struck a cord for you? Expand on that to get your own specific answers that fit your own specific journey. I have seen enough to believe that EVERY experience is a guided one. EVERY path is the “right” path for what we need in that very moment. I don’t always embrace that when I’m living my life, but when I do I see the amazing wonderment in the world! It is fantastic! It is breath-giving! It is, above all, worth it! 🙂

 

From the bottom of my heart, I wish you the most magical and amazing 2013!!!!! The ButterflyMoms blog is my gift to you. Each Friday throughout the year I will sit down, no matter where I am in the world, and GIVE YOU something yummy to feed your beautiful soul.

 

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

HOW TO DEAL WITH THE FOUR DEADLY DREAM KILLERS

The divine Miss Olivia lost another tooth this past week! :)

The divine Miss Olivia lost another tooth this past week! 🙂

Beautiful Lisboa!!!!!

Beautiful Lisboa!!!!!

Today’s blog was written with lots of love from beautiful Paço de Arcos, Portugal! It is gift-wrapped with Reiki energy so that whomever reads it gets a wonderful dose! Swim in all that love! Take as much as you need! 🙂

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

Christmas for many of us is the time when we enter into our imaginations and activate the “perfect” images of Christmas. We spend the entire time leading up to the holidays using our energy to make this vision a reality. There is actually nothing wrong with having a vision and manifesting it, that is actually how we make dreams happen…We bring ideas from the 7th chakra and drop them down into the lower chakras to create them on earth. The challenge comes from people coming into Christmas with the four deadly dream killers activated….What are the four deadly sins> #1. Not grounded  #2. Low energy/vibration   #3. Unclean and  #4. Unprotection. When these four core areas are not addressed you are setting yourself up for pain and disappointment, in other words, what you will manifest is the opposite of what you wanted.

IMG_0739Why is that? Well let’s imagine that you are going to cook something. If you have don’t have a proper space to cook that is the equivalent of not being grounded (#1). You would not want to make scrambled eggs in the bathroom would you? YUCK! If you have no containers (pans, bowls, etc.) or they all have holes in them then whatever you are trying to make will also be more complicated (#2). When the vibrational level is low so is its mass. When this happens you get flimsy dreams…so close but there is not enough there to hold on to.

DSCN5293The third (#3) deadly dream killer is being unclean. How many times have you taken a shower or bath in your lifetime? How many times have you done that for your soul? Your soul gets dirty just like your body does yet most people never even think about cleansing it. Think about how bad you’d stink if you had NEVER taken a shower!!! This one deadly dream killer is one that people can do every time they shower or even wash their hands. It takes no more time at all. It’s just about visualizing beautiful light washing over you and dumping all the “ickies” into a drain. I like to follow that image and guide the ickies into the ground where they are turned into glorious fertilizer so the energy shifts into something that then helps grow beautiful flowers. This is an example of full-spectrum use of energy…it’s a wonderfully responsible way to make the whole planet energetically work more in alignment with its peace, its natural flow.

Beautiful Guincho... Breath-giving!

Beautiful Guincho… Breath-giving!

The fourth (#4) deadly dream killer is “unprotection”. What would happen if you left all your doors and windows open 24 hours a day? Sounds silly, well as we become more and more aware of our energy we see that closing and opening up to certain people and circumstances is a choice that greatly affects deadly dream killer #2, your vibration.

When you don’t monitor who goes in and out of your precious energy field it can be incredibly draining. Energy vampires can come in just as easily as energy bunnies (those who give you energy) into your field …until you feel drained or rejuvenated. You may even have no clue why you feel so tired. Do you have someone in your life who when they call you sometimes ignore that call? Chances are that they are an energy vampire. You feel icky when you see their number pop up. Now you know why. It’s completely ok to do this. There are also other ways that steal your energy which I’m writing about in my upcoming book. For right now this is a good way to start working on filling your energetic container by only allowing those with whom you want to share energy to consciously flow with each other. 🙂 Life shifts completely when you can actively notice these four deadly dream killers because when you work on them they themselves transform into your DREAM CREATORS!

If you want to learn more about the DEADLY DREAM KILLERS/DREAM CREATORS feel free to come to a workshop (see below). Because I’m teaching this while in my core, you’ll notice an immediate life shift alignment in yours! Thankfully, it’s CONTAGIOUS!!!!

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

HEY YOU, YOU SUCK!

IMG_0826

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

Right now in your life…are you surrounded by people who lift you up or bring you down? Take a moment to think about those you speak to and see the most… your co-workers, friends, kids, family, mate, neighbors, parents… Do they let you be you? Do they help you ALIGN with your life’s purpose? Do they help you increase your joy? And what about you? Do you create this support for those around you? Are you a beacon for others’ authenticity or do you want to mold people into what you want them to be, so that they embrace the safe, happy, appropriate life you envision for them? Hmmmm?

REALLY EASY right now to get defensive and pull back. That is an option but one that shuts down the learning flow. Just for a moment, even if you are feeling “icky”, stay in that icky vibe. Let it process through you and then release it. In the end we are all doing the best we can with what we know and as Maya Angelou says when we know better we do better! 🙂

I’m realizing that I do this a lot with people closest to me. I have an idea of what would keep them safe and I hold that for them. I am WAY better at releasing this than I used to be, still it’s a journey. Noticing when I do it. Why notice it? Well, it’s the only way to release it. This is simply another form of JUDGING. Not so many generations ago this was how people survived, but things are different now. Judgment is a FORM OF FEAR. It leaks your vital energy out from your energetic container. People who do the deepest, most effective type of energy work are strongly disciplined in *Cleaning *Filling and *Protecting their energy container for the more that is done, the more intuition hits you get, the more you can hear your guides.

Yesterday was my very first ButterflyMoms Workshop in the Europe! It felt AWESOME!!! This time it was HOW TO BUILD YOUR INTUITION…They learned how to maintain their energetic containers and even did some visualization exercises. We also incorporated the power of the ocean as it was our glorious view for the workshop. It felt WUNDERBAH that although I’ve only been here a short time, that it was rainy and that I only booked it less than a week ago, I had four people from all over the world enthusiastically show up! I love that I am living my dream of BEING THE FIRE THAT IGNITES PEOPLE’s SOUL!!!! Be careful… it’s VERY CONTAGIOUS!!!!

IMG_0848

During the workshop I told the story of when I was living in San Francisco and had really risen in the ranks of speakers to the point where I was a keynote speaker. I was doing a keynote address to a group of almost 1,000 people. Afterwards, even though 30 people had lined up to congratulate me and thank me, I disregarded what they said and listened instead to a man who yelled at me for doing the worst job as a speaker that he has ever seen. I literally let it affect me so deeply that I stopped speaking in public… for years.

Energetically speaking I had not worked on the maintenance of my energetic container. It was weak and he ruptured it. That would never happen today because I now better understand the laws of energy. It was a painful lesson but also a really important one for me…and now you get the benefits so that you don’t have to necessarily go through the same pain.

Great big hugs,

Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

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.

What is the OPPOSITE of the SHIT Hitting the Fan?

Hello Beautiful ButterflyMoms!

I am soooo THANK-FULL for YOU! I am in the middle of SO MUCH MAGIC that I don’t even know where to begin. Three years ago someone was brave enough to give me an invitation to attend an open house for The Rhys Thomas Institute of Energy Medicine in Medway, Massachusetts (http://www.rhysthomasinstitute.com/). Like most of us life moves very fast for me so for me to even stop and go to such a thing…well, using the word “miracle” is not too ludicrous for the change that I at the time a mother of a 13, 5, 2 and 1 year old (who was still breast-feeding) would take 19 full weekends (Friday-Sunday) and countless other days of training over the last three years to get to this very profound and proud moment. It is also “funny” how this school is only 7 minutes from my house while others because they live in other parts of the world have to take several planes many times a year to attend this school! WOW!!!

So with all this it is with my heart wide open and full of gratitude that I announce that this weekend I am graduating from the Rhys Thomas Institute of Energy Medicine. I have gotten three other diplomas in my life, Hudson High, Boston College and Simmons College but this one this Sunday blows them all away.  Why do I have the ovaries to say that? Well, because the others were merely about my head and this one was still about my head but it was also about my heart. I am starting to see who I really am in this world and how I can live my life’s purpose…which for me is TO BE THE FIRE THAT IGNITES PEOPLE’S SOULS!! I live it now more and more and it is my ZONE. I could not have done it without the amazing program. I also could not have done it without the help of my incredible husband who all too often lives under the Maria light. Let me state publically and clearly that I could not do what I do without his amazing support! I would also like to thank my mom Raquel who many of you know had a very special birthday yesterday. She helped out a lot as did our friend Kären and my brother João. Thank you to my beautiful children who have helped ground me and taught me the concept of AUTHENTICITY. Finally I would like to thank my classmates and teachers. There are too many to name but the profound effect you have for my soul in this lifetime is ABSOLUTELY IMMEASURABLE!!! It takes a village and I am oh-so thankful for all your incredible support!!!

This morning, after only a very few hours of sleep while finishing up some school stuff, I woke up feeling absolutely exhilarated!!! I want to ride in the magic of today and this weekend! What a glorious day! It started off with my 5am running group in which an incredible new member joined. I could have run another 3 miles I was feeling so good. Then at 6am I had my first client of the day. She is someone who has been to a lot of doctors who could not help her but with the work I have learned she is doing incredibly well. It is wonderful to see her face light up as she talks about how her life is shifting, even her husband is shifting because she is. As I got the girls ready for school, I had to pay extra special attention to Mialotta, my 8 year old today because she has a splint on her arm which thankfully yesterday we found out was only a sprain. It is hard for her to get dressed so I had some wonderful bonding time with my girls gingerly getting them dressed. It was such a gift. Finally, as I came down the stairs to get their forms signed and backpacks filled Mialotta and Olivia came in to let me know that THE ROBINS ARE BACK…

Some of you know the story about the robins and our Sophia. Every day Sophia and I would go to the back yard to see the beautiful robins’ nest that was eye–level if we are standing on the deck. Sophia love love loved those birds! I am having a hard time writing this because it is just sooooooo deep and profound for me! (breathe Maria breathe) Ok back to the blog… So the nest had about four or five babies in it and slowly day by day they all started flying out. On the last day, Sophia and I got there just in time to see the last one fly out, almost fall to the ground and then soar into the sky. It was SUCH a special moment for us. Sophia clapped, giggled and laughed as did her mommy 😉 The very next next our Sophia died and at the courtyard in the hospital there was a robin in a very unusual place that just sat there as I was calling people letting them know that Sophia had died. Again while Doug and I were walking home from the funeral home there were two robins standing directly under each other in a very odd way. They were completely freakishly aligned. So back to our yard… that nest has been empty for seven years since Sophia died and NOW, today as I am about to graduate from a white light mystic healing school, the robins have come back.

Dear ButterflyMoms I have no idea what this means. I just know that my beautiful daughter Sophia is sooooo close I could almost touch her. I wish I could touch her because it would be one of the greatest desires of my life. I wanted to share this with you because many of you have been on this journey with me. Yesterday was also the one year anniversary of the taping of my appearance on THE OPRAH SHOW! It is all hitting at once and I am taking it all in!

 

To celebrate the 1 year anniversary of our having our ButterflyMoms Soul Support Workshops we are having a very special celebration next Thursday. I hope if you have been sitting on the fence about coming that you finally come see what all the joy and shifting is about. It will be a pot luck so come prepared to have a wonderful time feeding your soul and your body! Details are below…

I thank you for being on this journey with me! YOU HAVE MADE IT THAT MUCH JUICIER!!!

 

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

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

10 Years After We All Woke Up Into A Nightmare! (Shifting the Energy of the Horrors of 9-11)

Today we’re doing it a little differently. I’m doing the blog first and then all the amazing stuff that is going on. Let’s try this for a bit and see how it feels…

SERIOUS WARNING:

PLEASE NOTE

THAT TODAY’s BLOG HAS VERY

GRAPHIC PHOTOS IN IT…

REMEMBER TO KEEP BREATHING!

 

 

BOM DIA BEAUTIFUL BUTTERFLYMOMS!

There is soooooooo much activity right now going on. The energy is shifting. Can you feel it? How about in the weather? In how you feel lately? In others around you? It is not in your head. Mercury has been in retrograde and it affects us, but beyond that, as a global community there is an event that shifted life just enough to send us in a different direction. I’m talking about the events of 9-11. This Sunday is the 10th anniversary and I don’t know about you, but for most of these things I mean to do something to mark the occasion. Usually it comes out very bland or I don’t know what to do and just end up sad or bottling my feelings. This year it feels different.

It’s different for me because for years and years they have shown the building on fire but never really the people, well this year I saw the photos of the people, who were in such dire straights that climbing out of the window of 100 story building and eventually jumping seemed like a better idea than what was going on inside. It’s easy at this point to STOP BREATHING. It’s easy to get all choked up and turn away. I invite you to stay with these words and notice what you are feeling. What is coming up? Use your breath. STAY PRESENT. NOTICE YOUR MIND TRYING TO PULL YOU. Ground yourself to the earth and feel what you are feeling. Wiggle your “toesies”. Let it pass. Notice it passing. We have a tendency to want to HANG ON, play the movie again and again but let go of that tendency. NOTICE, BREATHE, FEEL, RELEASE, BREATHE, NOTICE… Give yourself these amazing gifts of FEELING what you FEEL and then RELEASING it. AHHHHHHHHHHHH! Do this as many times as you need. Stay with it. Breathe.

Last night at the 15th ButterflyMoms workshop we did a healing-grounding meditation and sent LOVE to all those who were on the building, in the planes and at home waiting to get word, especially the children who lost their parents and the parents who lost their children. (BREATHE) I feel compelled to do something special this year so I have organized a HEALING SHARE which means that if you would like to come get a FREE HEALING (like Massage, Reiki, Full Spectrum Healing) there will be a number of volunteers there who are giving of their time in honor of shifting all the ICKY ENERGY of 9-11 and turning it into HEALING for our communities. Just bring something for the Holliston Food Pantry so that we can PAY IT FORWARD. So far we have people coming from four different States!  Pretty awesome!!!! Details are below. If you are a healer and would like to donate your time please contact me at maria @ butterflymoms.com. Breathe.

With all these feelings sometimes it helps look around for people who are AUTHENTIC. Why? Because authentic people having nothing to prove. They are just themselves, even if it goes against the grain. Being around them helps you get more in alignment with yourself. There is one woman I would love to introduce you to who has helped me grow in such amazing ways by SIMPLY WATCHING how she is in the world. Her name is Marianne Sage. She is delightful. When I first met her many years ago I did not know how to take her. She said she went mining for crystals in Arkansas and sang to them as she mined them. To be honest she seemed a “little flaky”, just like now I probably seem a “little flaky” to others too! 😉 Well over the years she just kept showing up in my life and I started to let my guard down. I’m soooooo thankful I did. Now that I do Reiki, crystals are a very important part of the process because it further MAGNIFIES THE ENERGY. You can do a more powerful healing if you are using them. Sage is an expert in them! She loves these crystals. She respects them. Last week she held one up and said to my children, “Do you know these are older than dinosaurs?” Their eyes got really big! (mine did too!) She said that crystals are between 300-500 million years old! UH HELLO! That is half a billion years and you are holding it in your hands!!!! Hearing her speak is incredibly humbling and powerful! It is the respect for Mother Earth that Sage carries in her soul! She exudes it! She carries her passion on her sleeve! It is amazing to witness…but you only get to see it if you have your walls down. Once or twice a year this grandmother mines these amazing crystals. She lives her passion by mining these incredible gifts while singing to them. (Sage has an amazing voice! She used to sing in England.) WOW! Not conventional but AUTHENTIC! In total alignment with her purpose! I’m sooo happy to let you know that if you want to meet Sage you can do so at our next ButterflyMoms workshop! Yay!

Here’s to living the most AUTHENTIC week you can! GROUND YOURSELF!!!!!

Big honkin’ hugs,

Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

CALL YOUR ENERGY BACK

Dear Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

Last week I shattered my cell phone’s screen so that every time I call some one now I get very small papercuts on my fingers and ears. 😉 Two hundred dollars to get it fixed is the best option but there are complications ( I will not bore you with here but suffice it to say that they cannot download the information on my cell phone -except for contacts- unless I personally do it on my computer. Well, this week, my 15 year old son Christopher spilled water next to my laptop which killed the motherboard. It will not even turn on……(deep breaths – maybe more for me than for you 😉 ).

I find myself WANTING to find BLAME. I saw the whole thing and there was none, really in this situation. It was an accident. I OBSERVED in my life how quickly I switch to blame. HE DID THIS. SHE DID THAT. THOSE ASSHOLES!!! (didn’t think you’d be seeing that word here today did ya now? SURPRISE!!! 😉 )

Since today is Earth Day let’s talk about ENERGY…YOURS! 😉  Do you know what happens when you BLAME? You are literaly setting up an energy mortgage that you pay out to them EVERY time you think about that person or situation. For example, if you don’t like your boss or work, EVERY time you think about it, you PAY THEM from YOUR VERY OWN ENERGY BANK. Most of us think we are JUST thinking but HOW DO YOU FEEL when you do this? Do you feel full of energy or drained? Feelings are INCREDIBLE FEEDBACK mechanisms that many people ignore. It would be the same thing as if when you drove you decided to ignore EVERY SIGN you came across. What would happen? What if EVERYONE did that? That is basically what is happening all over this planet. We are colliding into each other because we are not paying any attention to the signs. I can help you see them! YES I CAN!!! :)!!!

Most of us pay these ENERGY MORTGAGES to many, many, many, many people and events. AWARENESS is the KEY here! JUDGING is what most people do but that will only get you “STUCKER-ER”!!! OBSERVE INSTEAD. NOTICE how ICKY it FEELS to GIVE AWAY YOUR PRECIOUS ENERGY to things that do not matter to you. If you had a garden it would be like you give all your water and fertilizer to the weeds and let the flowers and veggies die. Seems SILLY but how many times in one hour do you do it…..GOODNESS no wonder we are all tired!!!!

We are at a CRITICAL time on EARTH! It is an AWESOME time to be alive (even though for most of us it does not feel like that often – but that is because you are giving your energy to the weeds, dammit!!! ;)!!! To call your energy back is soooooooo easy you might miss it so pay extra close attention… Simply image that every time you have a negative, blame, hate, worry THOUGHT about someone IMAGINE an invisible cord forms between you and her and that is how your energy leaves. Simply imagine cutting that cord, releasing that person with as much love as you can muster and feeling the energy come back to you. Sometimes you need to do it several (million) times but if you do this every time you notice instead of INVESTING in “judging” or “blaming” you will start seeing a noticeable difference in your life.

What difference? To get WAY COOL experiences on this planet you need to have a certain amount of energy. For example, scoring that killer parking spot only mostly happens when you have enough energy to PAY for that experience. I have found that since I’ve started doing this work I get cooler and cooler experiences. Life is not perfect but it is imperfectly perfect for me! 🙂

There is no better day to start calling your energy back than today…April 22, 2011 EARTH DAY!!!! Let EARTH’s healing BEGIN with you dear ButterflyMoms!

At Ernest Hemingway's house in Key West last year at my beautiful niece Emily's wedding 🙂

This is something that works great if you share it with others. Share ButterflyMoms with your friends. We have a whole planet of humans to help shift their energy BACK to themselves! It started with you reading this blog today! YAY! Now pass it forward… www.butterflymoms.com

HAPPY EARTH DAY Y’ALL!!!!

Great big hugs,

Maariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
