Family time around the table is KEY! Also letting the kids prepare meals makes them feel like SUPERSTARS! All my kids love to cook!

Dearest Coach Me Maria Fans,

The world needs more HAPPY CHILDREN… whether they are newborns or 115 years old! I’m not only a transformation life and business coach but I’m also a mom. When I started coaching I was in my mid 20’s I ADORED kids but did not have any of my own. Having children has definitely expanded my ability to coach people. All the children I have mothered have been amazing teachers. Today’s video blog is dedicated to them… With LOTS “O LOVE! Being a mom is always a work in progress. We are doing the best we can. Learning how to focus on the LOVE and not on the JUDGMENT is the key! Here’s today’s blog…Today's COACH ME MARIA Video Blog...

Hope you adore this week’s blog and that it helps you bring more LOVE into your life!

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

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

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

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! :)

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.

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!!!!!

 

Ever Met A Four-Year-Old Hero?

The beautiful Linda Scruton (on right) with me and one of the horses she rescued. 🙂 Her heart is actually bigger than this horse but she flies under the radar a lot and does not get noticed…. Not this time sister friend! People worldwide are going to know about your beauty in the world! This blog is dedicated to you! 🙂

This week’s blog is dedicated to the quietest of heros among us, especially those who help those with no voice, our beloved animals. My dear friend Linda Scruton from Holliston, Massachusetts comes to mind who takes in the beautiful animals that other people “throw away” and helps rehabilitate them! Beautiful Linda this one is dedicated to all the Lindas out there! 🙂 Our planet is soooooo much better for your being on it! THANK YOU for the quiet, vital work that you do for the animals of our planet!

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

For some reason I resisted writing our beloved ButterflyMoms blog because the subject is heart-breaking and yet there is so much going on in the United States right now that I feel a tug at loyalties and calls to help. I am going with my intuition and writing about what I am being led to write not what I should write about…That being said, I send love and light to the people around the world who are hurting, especially those who are suffering from the devastation of Sandy….

So we are here in beautiful Portugal and being animal people we are really, really, really missing being around animals. I grew up with a wonderful German Shepard named Diana whom my beautiful brothers and I all adored! Here in Portugal we have started noticing animals… specifically dogs and cats…. EVERYWHERE… Many people here treat animals very poorly. To some animals are things like furniture and shoes are. When someone moves, if it is not convenient many people just abandon them, just leave them somewhere and take off. Someone who dies who has a pet, the family members just abandon the pet. As bad as that sounds some do much, much worse. There was one report of someone throwing a dog out of a moving car on a highway onto incoming traffic. The poor doggie’s body helplessly ping ponged back and forth getting run over again and again. WHO THE HELL DOES SUCH EVIL THINGS?! SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!!!!!  I know this is hard to read but it’s a lot easier than what this poor soul went through! It is ONLY through awareness that this problem will stop! AWARENESS WILL SET YOU FREE! (deep breath here)

Another cutie pie!

While driving to a friend’s house with Isabella one day we came across a dog that looked that he was dead on the side of the road. The next day I drove by again and she was still there in the exact spot. I told Bella to stay in the car and approached the dog trying to figure out what to do with the body. I did not want to touch her but I got very close and started gently talking to her as I was sending her Reiki. After about six seconds the dog suddenly opened her eyes and looked up at me as shocked and surprised as I was looking at her. She ran off.

This dog’s nose was shaped like a heart!

A beautiful doggie!!!!

Since that day we have gone there every day to feed and talk to her. As we have met people there we realized that the whole neighborhood takes care of these two doggies. They have built a shelter for them and everyone feeds them. They don’t let anyone near them however and so when the dogs had their second litter and one got him by a care they took matters into their own hands. They called in a local vet who gave her some sleeping pills and they neutered her. They also found good homes for all the puppies. The whole neighborhood loves these two dogs and they are quite happy living there amongst all this unconventional love! This whole beautiful incident made us all want to help by taking in one of the thousands of dogs who are in desperate need of a good home. So off we went on another adventure!

First, we asked our beautiful landlords and checked in with Doug. Once we go the go-ahead we started looking online for a doggie. Isabella had the week off from school so we decided to take a couple of roadtrips. The first shelter we went to was in Setubal where we were taken around by Agustine, who is originally from Argentia. It was an amazing place with over 500 dogs. It was a wee bit overwhelming and sad to see the magnitude of how many dogs are abandoned. Their site, which is in English describes the known history of each animal… http://dogsofportugal.wordpress.com/about-us/  The reason the site is in English is because a group of young professionals, including our new friend Augustine, and his wife, got together and have started using technology and their contacts to start featuring each pet and bringing them to other countries in Europe where people adopt them. I met with some of them and it was amazing how much love and passion they put into the animals! It was incredibly impressive! Heroes emerge from every corner… (My secrete hope is that some of us ButterflyMoms adopt a few of these beautiful beings of love!… You never know what happens when the heart opens.)

The next day we went to a shelter with a very special name… one of my mentors Wayne Dyer speaks a lot about Saint Francis of Assisi. This shelter is São Francisco de Assis (which is how we say it in Portuguese), another wonderful place for dogs and cats to get adopted. They had almost 100 dogs to choose from. When Isabella and I walked in, I immediately recognized one of the main women there Maria José whose photos I had seen online. She spends a lot of time at schools teaching kids about how to be a responsible and loving pet owner. Maria José seemed tough at first but she is a wonderful person with a ginormous heart! I believe that rough exterior comes from the sadness of seeing all this unnecessary animal suffering.

Carmo taking Isabella into the garden for Isabella to walk with Joaninha.

Another amazing connection was that her assistant Carmo was not feeling well and put her head down onto the table, as happens now since my Reiki training, my hands “wake up” and guide me over there, oftentimes to the protest of my brain. I share with Carmo that I am a Reiki Master and ask if it was ok to touch her. She smiles up at me and shares that she had taken Reiki 1 and to please go ahead. It was so amazing! She also said that her parents were both Reiki Masters… miracles unfolding at every corner! Carmo begins to feel better and we move into the dog section of the facilities.

No words needed.

It was beautiful Carmo who took us around to each dog. It can be heart-breaking looking at the doggies in their cages. You want to take them all home… well almost all of them 😉 Isabella again was with me and unlike the day before, this day, at this shelter, she kept insisting on this one dog, a most unlikely choice, especially for someone so young. Out of the 700 dogs we saw in two days, our little four year old Isabella asked for only one doggie specifically… one that left everyone in the office shocked and awe-struck.  She picked a doggie that we were originally told was around 10 but when they checked the records Joaninha (Ladybug) was almost 16 years old!!!! I wonder what that is in dog years?! When one of the assistant caretakers, Carla,  came over, she shared that Joaninha had been one of the originals dogs when they had first opened almost 11 years earlier! This wonderful little doggie had been living in this shelter and passed over for that time!!! Bella was oblivious to the significance of this. She simply picked a doggie with her heart, a very Bella thing to do.

Everyday heros we meet in our daily life… Andrea and Carolina 🙂

While we were in the office waiting for the paperwork another woman named Andrea came into the office with three puppies she had rescued from the neighbor who was going to drown them as soon as they were born. She was keeping two and was bringing in the smallest one… even that cute little puppy did not sway Isabella… she was set on Joaninha! (Big hugs of love to Andrea and her daughter Carolina for stepping up and not letting her neighbor murder those puppies!) Yet another example of small acts of heroism that oftentimes go under the radar.

We went to grab some lunch and explore a little more of Portugal while they had the vet check out Joaninha and give her a bath. News of Isabella’s act of heartfulness spread like wildfire among the volunteers and we had a small crowd there when we got back. Everyone knew Joaninha and were saying their last loving good-byes to her and congratulatory hellos to little Isabella.

The veterinarian Dra Ana Castro, Maria José, Joaninha, Carla and Isabella

As we were filling out the paperwork, two women were paying for something and they heard of Isabella’s act. One of them, named Dulce, quietly walked back into the gift shop unnoticed. When she came back she bent down quietly next to Bella and said, “Your doggie is older than most so she will not play ball with you but with these colored pencils you can sit next to her and draw as she lies next to you.” There was not a dry eye in the house!

One final note, people have asked me why I would allow my girls to get an older dog because it will die. Death is something we are very familiar with in our house. It is a natural part of life and if we can help this little dog have another few ________ (fill in the blank with hours, days, weeks, years) then we will have made a huge difference to one. Every life matters and ever act of kindness counts. This just feels perfectly up our alley!

Joaninha is loving her new home and her new girls are loving her. We think she might be deaf, or like many husbands and children, have “selective hearing” but we adore her. Joaninha reminds us to SLOW down and savor. It is a wonderful reminder. One of the most heart-warming things is that she snores like a granny with loose dentures… and she starts snoring the second she falls asleep. We all giggle EVERY time she falls asleep! 🙂 We have a new member of our family and we are in love with her already!

There is a lot of sadness and shame around this issue in Portugal. I know some will not be happy that I am divulging this information to the world, but we are the voice of the voiceless animals who are suffering terribly at the hands of our fellow humans… who obviously need a lot of love too for who would do this to beautiful animals?! If you’ve ever had a pet you’ve adored, you know what I mean.

I ask that you spread the word to your friends about the heart-breaking plight of animals here in Portugal. These animals are everywhere you look. Some people poison them, some ignore them and some organize neighbors and feed them. There are many who are helping but they cannot do it alone. The situation is incredibly open for those who want to make a big difference… to step forward any way their heart calls them… from a donation to an overseas adoption. Who knows maybe someone who reads this will find their heart calling them to actually come here, even for just a few weeks and volunteering their time to helping LITERALLY SAVE even just a handful of dogs! BELIEVE!!!!! FEEL!!!! REALIZE!!!!!!!

Great big hugs from beautiful Portugal,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

PS Also for anyone interested the São Francisco de Assis shelter is running a special that for any dog that you adopt who is five years old or older. They get free veterinary care for the life of the pet, 15 free pet hotel and 5% off all dog food (which is already very reasonably priced). Plus it’s free to adopt pets here! Cannot beat that deal, truly! If you live in Portugal or know someone who does please let them know! Let’s adopt some beautiful doggies! 🙂 Here is the video. Even if you don’t understand Portuguese you can see the photos and feel the love! http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=SWmTEv3qqZU#!

Two “Life Purposes” Walk Into A Bar…

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

I’ve noticed that a large percentage of my wonderful coaching/healing clients this week are feeling “EXTRA STUCK”. Stuck in their lives… in their work… in their routines. It is not a new human phenomena but it is happening in greater numbers. If YOU are also feeling stuck in any part of your own life there is only one of two ways you can go…

Option 1… Stay where you are. In Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) you learn that most people will do more to avoid pain than to get pleasure. What that means is even if your life SUCKS, if it does not suck bad enough so even though you complain/cry/rant, you will continue in that pattern. This line of reasoning may not make sense to your conscious brain, but it is the most basic human reaction. So why don’t you change if you are unhappy? This happens because your PERCEIVED FEAR of how worse your life could get if you move toward your goal, is greater than the pain of your current (known) pain. (Thus the expression, “The devil you know is better than the devil you don’t.”)

Stay in this mindset long enough and you enter into a very cynical space where you acquire a LEARNED HELPLESSNESS. In this state you take on, as truth, that there’s no use in even trying to shift because LIFE SUCKS AND THEN YOU DIE. If you take that as REALITY you will live “here”… usually until something like a death or illness jolts you free. In the past, most of society has lived here. The price for shifting (going after your dream) had too many barriers, therefore the rate of potential failure was very high and human conditions were still very precarious. Now that we have had more stability in the basics of food, shelter, education, other options present themselves.

Moving on the second option then…

Option 2 involves LEAVING your ICKIENESS and moving towards you’re the PURE JOY of aligning with your life’s purpose. Those who are reading this rolling their eyes, take note that it is indicative of where you are mentally, for the further you are from being happy in your life, the more ridiculous BEING HAPPY sounds to you.  It takes a lot of courage to live your authentic life. It is when things get so bad that you start feeling the pain of not being aligned with your life’s purpose, that you will have effortless MOVEMENT towards your dreams.

For me, personally, I move forward in the direction of my dreams because I can envision myself on my deathbed and FEAR not having lived life to the fullest. I want to live my life every day, saying as Anthony Robbins does when he gets on stage, “GOD USE ME UP”.

Whether you like it or not we are all going through a major human shift. It will happen with or without your permission. It is a lot more of a fun experience if you notice and shift accordingly. Sometimes we need to create our own SHIFT.

Back in 1995 when I was getting my MBA at Simmons Graduate School of Management in Boston I was also dating someone (let’s call him, hmmmm, oh I don’t know, how about Brad Pitt 😉  So I had been with Brad for many years and we were STUCK, it was time for a decision, marry or not. It was getting pretty obvious that marriage was not going to happen, at least not a good one so we broke it off… a very strong connection was still there, we kept going back and forth, back and forth because of it. This could have gone on forever, but instead I did something very drastic… I went sky-diving! I HIGHLY recommend doing something absolutely dramatic like that if you want to SHAKE something off. In the energetic world what you are doing is really cutting the connection but let’s not quibble. Anthony Robbin’s firewalks are the same thing. He uses something that blows your mind, and gives you the chance to rebuild certain beliefs to your liking. It really literally EXPANDS YOUR POSSIBILITIES and RESETS YOUR COMPASS!

So why all this now? Why me? Why you? Simple…

Planet Earth is in trouble. BIG  TROUBLE. We are using all our resources, including WATER to such a degree that entire populations of people, animals, plants, even bees and butterflies are dying off! UH, WHAT NOT THE BUTTERFLIES?!! We are taking all of our Mother Earth’s resources without even a thought of replacement or consequences. Financial institutions now have the biggest voice and have trained us to believe that ABUNDANCE is connected to stock markets, new construction sales, commodities and Gross Domestic Product/Gross National Product (GDP/GNP). All these measures re-enforce the rape of OUR PLANET! We need a new way to measure growth. Our very existence depends on it!

There is a huge wake-up call out there that is getting bigger and bigger. I know you feel it! It will affect everyone in a deep way because it must. So if things seem a wee bit “off, that is the energy you are feeling. Think about your body when you get a cut, does not your body send signals to the rest of your body to help you stop bleeding and heal….THAT is the message that Planet Earth is sending out. SLOW YOUR LIFE DOWN… Begin LISTENING to your HEART. START CONNECTING MORE TO MOTHER EARTH. Your LIFE’s PURPOSE is completely connected within this mission of souls… Your attention is vital! Your courage is necessary! Your joy is guaranteed on this road to UNLOCKING YOUR LIFE’s PURPOSE!

Great big hugs from beautiful Portugal,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

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.

GLOBAL CRISIS… AFFECTS MY GENERATION

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

Before we start, a moment directly from me… “I’m totally blown away that we got almost 1,000 hits on the ButterflyMoms blog this past week alone! At last count, ButterflyMoms from over 35 countries read it! AMAZING! HUMBLING! GRATEFUL! Please continue sharing http://butterflymoms.wordpress.com!”  Now onto the ButterflyMoms blog…

Economic abundance, or lack thereof, is on a lot of people’s minds. Here in Portugal, the word “crise” (pronounced kree-z), meaning the crisis is heard on every news report and read in every newspaper. Times like these set a perception in motion and INCREASE THE FEAR. In this case it is global. I picked up a Canadian magazine and it was talking about how college graduates have mega-debt and no high paying jobs to dig out of their debt. You turn on the news and it is fighting, disharmony, discord.

For the last few decades, we human beings, from a global point of view have gotten, dare I say, I wee bit spoiled. Never before have we had the extravagance of food, shelter, amenities and transportation as we do now. Even someone like Louis XIV or Henry VIII could did not have access to the incredible amount of options we have. For example, if we wanted to eat a lobster or fly to Paris or have hot water on demand, most of us can do this if they needed to. Those old wealthy rulers simply could not because the technology and abundance were not there for them.

For someone born in 1910 by the time they were in their 20’s, they had experienced the Great Depression. In their 30’s, they experienced World War II. They called this group of people THE GREAT GENERATION for how they dealt with the deep adversity. Our global generation has experienced abundance, growth, peace and prosperity… for the most part. We have been able to compartmentalize war, suffering and poverty so that it is hidden. My daughter Mialotta is 8 and a half years old and even before she was CONCEIVED the United States of American has been at war with Iraq. (It is weird even for me to write this because it seems like it can’t be true but it is true.) We have just disconnected from it. As a mother, it bothers me that in my beautiful daughter’s lifetime we have been at war, and not even really “felt it”.

The GREAT GENERATION had their moment and now it is ours. The price the planet and we have paid for living so mindlessly is catching up to us. We are at the precipice of a huge spiritual and cultural shift. Corporations are failing. This can cause panic in some but only to those who cannot see that life is about shift and every generation has had their shift. Those who thrive are those who are able to step back and see the big picture.

You cannot feel LOVE and FEAR at the same time. So if you are feeling scared about your money situation, take a step back. Take in several deep breaths. One… breathe.  Two… breathe. Three… breathe. AHHHHHHH! Now get out pen and paper and a warm glass of water (believe me it works wonders – just warm water) and ask whatever you need to ask. “How is what I’m experiencing the best lesson for me at this moment in time?” “What am I thankful for right now?” “What are the gifts in front of me that I have not seen?” “What things/habits/people am I ready to release in my life?”

What we have been doing on our planet is something that cannot be sustained. This economic global crisis will probably get a lot “worse” but there is so many wonderful gifts and shifts that are coming from it. Make sure you are getting rid of what does not work in your life and are doing more of what you love! Even just one person doing this SHIFTS it for everyone. Bring more good feelings to our planet by bringing out the real you… more aligned with your life’s joy! If you don’t know what that is have fun letting it find you! Enjoy your journey!

Now if you are feeling stuck or need help leave a comment below and I will coach you through it. If you have that question chances are that a lot of other people do too!

Great big hugs from beautiful Portugal,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Last ButterflyMoms Post from the United States…

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

There is so much going on in my heart right now. In the past WEEK I just finished my Reiki Master Teacher certification in Rhode Island, travelled to Long Island, New York to spend time with family, traveled to Chicago, Illinois to be in the audience of Oprah’s Lifeclass with Iyanla Vanzant, had my last ButterflyMoms meeting (after almost 1 and a half years of meetings –when there was only supposed to be one) and yesterday my eight year old fell 12 feet head-first from a tree swing and for five hours we thought she had injured her spinal cord. All this while I’m preparing to leave on Wednesday to start my sabbatical in Portugal for a year. (deep breath)

GREAT BIG THANK YOU TO THE HOLLISTON PARAMEDICS WHO SHOWED UP!!!! AMAZINGLY GIFTED PEOPLE WITH BIG HEARTS! I LOVE THEM!!!! THEY WERE SOOO KIND TO OUR MIALOTTA, ESPECIALLY AROUND HER FEARS OF AMBULANCES FROM THE HORROR OF SOPHIA’s DEATH. THESE PEOPLE ARE MAGICAL!!!

First of all Mialotta, my daughter is fine. As soon as it happened I sent our prayer and healing requests to some of the most heart-centric people I know and I believe that made all the difference. They thought for a while they’d have to transfer her to the trauma center at Mass General but it did not need to be… THANK GOODNESS! I’m deeply thankful to all those who sent prayers and healings! I felt them and it helped me stay grounded and present for my beautiful little girl (as I write this I realize that it was both for my daughter and the little girl inside of me! 😉 NICE! (as my good friend Rei Alberto- Big Al likes to say)!

Something in me has shifted. I cannot pinpoint what specifically caused it, but I can feel it. What is most noticeable is that things that used to bother me don’t. When I’m triggered by people, I immediately ask WHAT IS MY PART IN THIS? WHAT IS MY LESSON? WHERE IS THE GIFT IN THIS? It is not always the easiest first step, but it is the only first step.

As I pack for my trip, I am thinking of all of you and asking my guides for help on this new leg of our adventure. The whole ButterflyMoms journey has been an unfolding of trust. Now is no different and I’m as open as I know how to be for awaits us on the other side of this leg…

As always I will do my best to write next week’s blog, this time from Portugal !:)

Special THANK YOU to all the love and magical, meaningful gifts I got from some of the ButterflyMoms yesterday. All I could do is be humble and thankful!

LOVE YOU,

Mariaaaaaaaaaaa

A Recipe For Depression and an Unfulfilled Life

Dear ButterflyMoms,

Last night’s ButterflyMoms Soul Support group was spectacular! Those who showed up are oftentimes a good indicator or what is going on in our society. Women, especially, are taught to put others first, no matter the cost. It is mostly automatic and deeply ingrained by our society. We’re on a treadmill for most of our days, uncomfortably wrapped up, in our never-ending to do lists. We get up, do our tasks, pay our bills, take care of our kids, try to make time for our mate (if we have one). We cram as much into each day as we can so we can “arrive” at the magical place in our heads where we can finally REST and simply BE.

The key to this is HOW YOU START YOUR DAY…for when you get up you consciously or subconsciously SET YOUR CHANNEL FOR THE DAY. If you are not consciously focusing on the things you want then almost guaranteed you are blindly and painfully following whatever has had the most influence. Could be advertising. (Before you “pooh pooh” this idea remember that there is a reason why people spend trillions of dollars on advertising. Trends, fashion, habits are all formed through the images they feed our brains.) Could also be the fear voice in your head or the voices of well-meaning people from your past who rent out space in your head.

To change the direction of your life start at the beginning … the beginning of EVERY day is the time when the rest of your day sets its trajectory. For most of us we just get up and automatically start our day without any intention or conscious thought. This is a recipe for depression and an unfulfilled life. What we shared yesterday at the ButterflyMoms Soul Support group was how to do it. How to pick a ritual that fits your life and becomes a habit. Why it is important. What is the best way to do it. I love when you see the blocks fall away and energy going back into people. They have a glow about them. There were a lot of glowing people there yesterday.

“SUCCESS” no matter how you define it is germinated and nurtured in the effortless, simple, little things we do day after day, moreso that sudden HUGE action that you hope will one day come but never really does for most of us. So if you are reading this you have a choice to stay the course of where your life is heading or change it. We all have a lot of “tools” to make that happen but they are somewhere in the corner of our lives. It is time to dust them off and make good use of what you already know and seek out the additional support and tools you may need so that you attract the EXTRA-ORDINARY LIFE that is always there waiting for you to show up in your life.

Great big hugs,

Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

🙂

 PS Please leave a comment today. You never know how sharing what you feel affects others in a liberating way! Please take a moment and write something. It is an act of love and truly means a lot!

The End of A ButterflyMoms As We Know It… Another SHIFT Is Upon Us! :)

I’ve been to this beach many times. That building is a hotel. Lovely place for tea and scrumptious pastry.

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

The time has come for another major shift for ButterflyMoms… Something is definitely ending which is giving something else a place to birth itself.

Praça do Comércio, Lisboa. For thousands of years this has been an incredible energetic center.

A few weeks ago, a Canadian friend of mine who lives in the outskirts of Lisboa, Portugal (and who is also a ButterflyMom) sent me a very simple email… “Hey Maria, I’m taking a year-long sabbatical and need to find someone to rent my flat. Since you are connected to a lot o of people, do you know anyone who wants it?” I laughed out loud and heard myself say, “YA, I know someone, ME!” (chuckle, chuckle) but, of course that is not possible, right? Immediately my brain went into FEAR MODE…” Too many details. Too much stuff. Too many commitments. Too much to think about and do. Not possible. Brain cutting dream, activate. Disconnect from the dream. Not possible. Not practical. Move on.”

Amazing architecture in Portugal! Being there inspires me to my toes! 🙂

And I did. I let it go and went on about my day, but the idea did not let go of me. It kept popping up. It kept showing up so much so that I had to share it with my beautiful husband, Doug. “Doug, read this email and tell me what you think.” His response was unexpected and delightful. “I think this is such an awesome opportunity for our girls. Let’s do it!,” he said.

Our new home will be a 5 minute walk to the beach, that’s the Atlantic Ocean! NICE!

WOW! WOW! WOW! We had talked about this for years and now suddenly it was happening! It was a bit of shock to the system. It feels a bit scary but it also feels REALLY GOOD! Suddenly out of nowhere things started falling into place because when you make a decision the universe conspires with your dream to make it a reality. In the middle of August, my three girls and I will be leaving the United States of American and moving into a magnificent home on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean! How very cool is that?

Even the stairs are simply AMAZING!

So, my dear ButterflyMoms, I know I will continue writing the blog because I do that as an honor to my beautiful Sophia, that will not change. I will share my journeys of living in Europe with my girls. They will be going to school there and I will still be able to do my real estate work with Brick House Realty virtually because of how we have set up the business. I will also take the year to write my ButterflyMoms book, the one I’ve been developing for years. I am VERY excited!!!!!!! The kids are very excited!!!! Doug and Christopher will be coming to visit and we will be back for Thanksgiving and graduation. My family, especially my parents, think I’m nuts, but that is not a new phenomena. 😉  I will be sharing my adventures with you via the blog! The shift will affect you too, if you allow it for when one person moves direction the others have no alternative but to also shift.

What will change is the ButterflyMoms Soul Support Group on Thursday nights… There are only seven left before I leave. I know that a lot of you have thought about coming and now is the time to come to one to connect. I hope you take this opportunity of an ending to create a new beginning for yourself.

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

🙂

HOW Do My Actions Inspire YOU?

Hello Beautiful ButterflyMoms!

WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEW!!!!!!!!! I am starting today’s blog all hot and sweaty after having JUST come back from one of the coolest (and simplest) life experiences… a neighborhood running group!

Let it be known publically that I do not like “running”. The best thing I like about running is being finished. Yes, yes, I have gotten that runner’s high years ago but for me the ICKIES of running out-weighed the benefits…UNTIL…ENTER AN IDEA… an idea that I had a small part in but that I’m seeing reverberate into other people’s lives. The idea of combining COMMUNITY + EXERCISE.

Most of us started off trying to mainly do this. Now we also have the benefit of COMMUNITY LOVE! FEELS GREAT!

I shared with you a few months ago that I had been in this in-between space where I wanted to live somewhere else like San Francisco or Europe other than where I was. For a few years I struggled with that thought. I gave it A LOT of my energy until one day I realized that I was not living in MY NOW. I was giving my power to the future or the past (where I have no power) and not appreciating the present of my PRESENT moments (where I have all my power).

Bringing back all my energy to the present moment gave me a lot more AHA moments and one of them was the thinking that if I was going to be fully present I wanted to build more community here. This inspiration led me to start the wildly successful local online Facebook group called, “I’M HOLLISTON HAPPY”.

I saw that in my idyllic little New England town of Holliston, MA there were sooooo many AMAZING people from all over the world BUT the way things happen here you only meet people through your kids, neighborhood or church/synagogue. Many wonderful people had no opportunity to interact or meet each other so enter a solution… I’M HOLLISTON HAPPY, a Facebook page where local people can share events, news and have a vehicle for their own inspirations…ENTER Gaynor Greenberg! TAH DAH!!!!

The wonderful Gaynor Greenberg whose question sparked a movement in our town for many of us to get off our butts and play together! 🙂

A transplant for Scotland and mother of two strapping young boys who has found herself also in this magical little town of Holliston, Gaynor was also feeling disconnected until she entered the world of I’M HOLLISTON HAPPY. Two weeks ago, she posted a simple question… “Hey, anyone interested in doing a running group?”… and BAM!… instant traction and reaction… People were hungering for something like this that was connective, free, local and fun! Betsy Maxwell, for example, a delightful brand new Holliston resident joined in the organizing and leading part of the adventure. After a lengthy back and forth we all decided to meet al the local Irish pub her in town called Casey’s and when we sat down a tiny green inch worm was on my arm. We took it as a sign that we should be called the Inch by Inch Running Group, a rag-tag group of very out of shape (sorry all) Hollistonians who wanted to connect while having fun.

The wonderful Betsy Maxwell who helped organize the fun! 🙂

So three times a week, Monday, Tuesday and Friday we meet at 5:00am in front of the Butterfly gate at 14 Vine Street and do the Couch to 5k app on our iPhones 😉 Last week it was even written up in one of the local online publications The Holliston Patch!

It does my heart good to be able to actually see what happens when we take our energy and move it to the present. What a gift to be able to see that the reverberations of my actions are having in the world. How cool to see all the people who are now taking care of their bodies and using their voices to build community in this most soul delicious manner! How very divine!

I wish for you the ability to see how your actions reverberate in the world! 🙂

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

In case you were wondering…

WHAT IS BUTTERFLYMOMS?
ButterflyMoms is a community of people who realize they are souls first and human being second. They want to explore more about themselves, to find out what makes them happy and how they can lead a life of purpose. It is simply about FEEDING YOUR SOUL. Although it has the name “MOMS” in the title it is more about being nurturing to your own transformation, as the butterfly is to its own metamorphosis. This community is led by Maria Salomão-Schmidt whose transformation was ignited by the birth and death of her BELOVED thirteen month old daughter Sophia (Sophalicious), the original butterfly.

*Every Thursday Night we have a BUTTERFLYMOMS SOUL SUPPORT GROUP at 783 Washington Street in Holliston, MA at 8pm that feeds your soul. They started after Maria manifested her dream…with the help of Sophia…to be a guest on THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW and every week since she had done the SOUL SUPPORT GROUP on Thursday nights. Any questions call my cell at 617.877.3616.

*Every Friday Morning, as a way of honoring her daughter Sophia’s soul, Maria gets up at 4:30-5:00am to write the weekly BUTTERFLYMOMS BLOG. Hundreds of people read it every week to feed their souls.

At What Point Is BEING OVERWHELMED With Life A GIFT?

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

The last few weeks have been a bit of a roller coaster ride. Lots of ups and downs as it normal. Here is a sampling of just what couple of weeks have been like for me…

*Added a new member to our family, a 14 year old child from the foster care system named Beatriz.

*My main source of income right now is being a real estate broker. With one person saying “NO” three major real estate deals instantly fell apart.

*Had four books to read for homework, healings to do, write-ups and assignments to do for energy medicine school (due Friday).

*Put in another three offers on properties that were accepted.

*My aunt unexpectedly died.

*Went to ER with chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness. Now wearing a heart monitor.

*Six new women have come to ButterflyMoms meetings because the word is spreading!

I know you know that the list is a HELL OF A LOT longer than what I wrote up there but you get the drift. People are amazed by how much I do. They sort of shut down when I tell them what I am doing next or how FULL my day/weeks are. I don’t really compare myself with others…ok that is not true I do…but a lot less than I used to. What I meant was that I don’t do things to BE BETTER THAN OTHERS, I do them because THEY FEEL GOOD  *OR* because THEY MAKE MONEY. The cliché is that you need BALANCE… NO SHIT! But how the hell do you get that balance? That is what I am working on.

So this week I decided I needed more help and I am asking for it. We women are generally “TRAINED” from a very early age to JUST DO IT and don’t “bother” anyone, at least that is how I feel. Do you feel that too sometimes? As you can tell from the items listed above I am not very good at asking for help. Life is wonderful enough that it has given me these chest pains experiences to get my attention. Whatever you ignore grows bigger. If I had not checked it out when I felt it would have grown. So right now in your own life…what are you FEELING that you are pretending not to notice?

Let me say that again… WHAT ARE YOU FEELING THAT YOU ARE PRETENDING NOT TO NOTICE? Go from there…First step is to simply notice…. without judgment… observe with what you find…play with it…shift it…turn it…. then notice all over again. Have fun with this GAME we call “LIVING”. Are you playing to the best of your ability? Are you even in the GAME? Check in with yourself! 🙂 I invite you to see how good it can feel to be you today from where you are finding yourself RIGHT NOW. The RIGHT NOW MOMENT is the ONLY place you can find TRUE JOY! FIND IT…WRAP IT UP AND TAKE IT HOME WITH YOU (again and again and again)! 🙂

Before I close out this week’s fabuloso blog I wanted to announce two co-leaders for the one-day retreat that is happening next Saturday…. Karen Knight-Detering and Ellen Freeman. They will help make the day one of most life-changing you could ever hope for….Here are their bios. Sign up RIGHT NOW before it’s too late at http://bit.ly/mS7c70!

Karen is one of the most amazing teachers you will ever meet. Her workshops stay with you. She got raving reviews at last year's Vermont ButterflyMoms retreat!

British-born Karen Knight-Detering is one of the most dynamic hypnotists you will ever find.  Karen just returned a few weeks ago from Guatemala where she worked building a school for Mayan children. She has worked, studied and taught around the world, including a stint in Grenada working for England’s equivalent to the Peace Corps. Karen has the gift of being able to help others shift the points where they feel stuck. She will be leading the hypnosis and the shamanic journeys.

The Amazing Ellen Freedman will doing the yoga at the one day retreat on the 24th. She is an amazing yoga teacher that even beginners adore!

Ellen Freedman has been practicing and teaching yoga for more than twenty years. She teaches at Prana Yoga and in many other local venues. In 2011 she was asked to be the yoga leader at the ButterflyMoms retreat in Vermont. Ellen is wonderful at including everyone no matter what one’s level or ability. People always leave her class smiling because of the energy, meaning, beauty and wisdom Ellen naturally brings with her. It is always a joy to take her class… a real treat!
