Photos From The HAPPY ME RETREAT: Massachusetts… 2019

This past weekend, we held the latest HAPPY ME RETREAT in Holliston, MA. I’ve been doing retreats for decades… and each one reminds me of how very much I LOVE LOVE LOVE to do them!

Why?

Well, we are living in a time of great loneliness (isolation) and bad (old) programming we learned in childhood. That deadly combination is reeking havoc on our lives… and diminishing our happiness levels.

HAPPY ME RETREATS are designed to connect you to a wonderful community and deprogram you from your painful domestication.

Here are some photos of this past weekend’s HAPPY ME so you can feel the LOVE RISING! 🙂

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!

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

*Every Thursday Night we have a ButterflyMoms workshop at 783 Washington Street in Holliston, MA at 8pm that feeds your soul. They started after Maria manifested her dream…with the help of Sophia…to be a guest on THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW and every week since she had done the workshop on Thursday nights. 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. Maria started writing the blog in May 2009 and has written EVERY Friday since.

GET YOUR HEART ON!!!!

Good Morning Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

Ok, today might be March 9th on the calendar but for me today is totally HEART DAY! It might as well be VALENTINE’s DAY for today is the day that many things are going on in my heart. Today I am going to offer you a door into my heart, it is a place that I’m learning to share with others thanks to the gifts of the life experiences I’ve have had the pleasure to live through.

So if you are ready, take a deep breath and the key will magically land in your hands. Look at the key. What does it feel like to you? What colors do you see? How do you feel? Are you breathing? Take another deep, cleansing breath…. Ahhhhhhhhh!

Take the key and imagine going into my heart an opening it. Inside you will find a lot going on. First last night at the ButterflyMoms workshop was one of the most exquisite times I’ve ever had. Three new people I did not know where coming came. Some came with their heart closed, with their guard up but after a few minutes of feeling the safe, luxurious heart place we have created with ButterflyMoms their hearts melted open…Mmmmmmmmmm. It is a beautiful thing to see. I see it first in people’s faces, especially in their eyes….eyes are MAGICAL! :)! We don’t spend enough time looking into people’s eyes! ☺

I felt like last night was a gift from my Sophia. I could feel her there. I felt my heart opening even more. I feel like I am living my path of BEING THE FIRE THAT IGNITES PEOPLE’s SOULS. Last night I said that because I have lived through Sophia’s dead it has made me a SUPER HERO in the sense that things no longer can “hurt” me like they did before. I can be in certain situations that I would shrink from before I went THROUGH all this and now it is simply effortless, like water skimming over a seal’s back. There are so many gifts in the most unlikely places. It does not dishonor our Sophia by looking for the gifts, what it does is give her an even bigger place of honor.

Now this week my heart also experienced some “ickies” or growing pains. With all that is happening I’ve been ignoring chest pains for about a month. Finally it got really strong and I put aside my “oh-it’s-nothing” and went to get myself checked out first at the doctor and then at the ER. I’m now on a heart monitor but everything is fine. What an incredible gift I have given myself… the gift of taking care of me! ☺

Christopher introduces Beatriz to this girlfriend. 🙂

Finally, today is the day I go to pick up our beloved Beatriz for her to come live with us for good! I am sooooooo excited I can hardly stand it! I already miss her on a cellular level. In her fourteen years she has been through so very much, most of it with no adults to protect her at all, and still her heart is open. WOW! Such beauty and grace after so much strife. Beatriz is a wonderful reminder of how powerful our hearts really are if we focus on the LOVE. Today I invite YOU to focus on the love…. Call it into your life. Look for it. Focus on it. Expect it. Nurture it. Play in it. Ask for it. Give it. Cherish it. As it says in one of my favorite movies, LOVE ACTUALLY… “LOVE IS ALL AROUND”! May you catch it and may it catch you! May I be the first one to say to you today I LOVE YOU! ☺

Come back every Friday for some more fun ENERGY information sharing!

RISING GAS PRICES COULD HELP YOU FEED YOUR SOUL…

Good Morning Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

What deeply helps us on our journey is to know, or be reminded, of what we already have. Today let’s talk about something that affects your days in the most profound way,  E N E R G Y.

ENERGY is the fuel for everything you do. You can have the nicest car in the world, but without gas, over time, it’s just a candidate for the junk yard. Think about that for a second. Our energy is key! It’s an obvious point, so obvious that we forget about it! 😉 Learn from your car… it has several warning mechanisms. Its gas gauge tells you how much gas you have. For some of us, we ride with the WARNING: GAS ALMOST EMPTY light on because we have gotten pretty good at guesstimating how many trips we can take without having to re-fuel. Sound familiar? 😉

Mothers, in general,  can go a lot longer than a car without gas, a lot longer, sometimes years. In a way I’m proud to write that. I think that’s the ego. The “I can take on the world no matter what”, part of me. The challenge is that while you are in that mode you are CLOSING DOWN your JUST BEING mode. This is when we start to feel STUCK and then start spiraling into our favorite defensive coping strategies like watching more TV, more eating, more wine or even more whine! Sound familiar? :0)

This week use your car as a gentle reminder that every time you check the gas gauge you can also take that natural opportunity to check in with yourself to see if you are getting enough sleep, nutritious foods, play/creative time and connecting with others who fill your soul time. If the answer is no then right then and there pull out your calendar and find a fifteen minute time slots that day that you can get to play with two of those things above…Call a heart friend. Walk your dog. On the way from picking your kids up from school take them to the park for 15 minutes. It might sound like not that big of a deal but when you do it, it unleashes some serious FUN that will shift a lot of what is not working in your life! Try it. You might just LOVE it

Come back every Friday for some more fun ENERGY information sharing!

Have fun playing in the world!

Great BIG luscious hugs,

Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

YOUR ANGELS ARE GUIDING YOU….TO PLAY WITH YOUR TRUE SELF! :)

My beautiful friend Joscelyn who died a few years back. She taught me to listen to my soul by how she lived her life. I feel her around me all the time!

Beautiful ButterflyMoms!

Sometimes I wish I could learn things faster so that I would not hit so many bumps. What I am learning is that in life’s journey, as you begin uncovering and letting go of your EGO (and things that no longer serve you), you start to FEEL. Sometimes those feelings can be overwhelming. During these times make sure you get plenty of sleep, plenty of water and eat the best you know how to eat. As you shift, your body will also need your help shifting. Be kind. Journal. Notice. Feel…ahhhhh that’s the word we sometimes try to avoid…FEELING. We feel the ICKIES so we numb out/avoid with _________________(fill in the blank with food, drugs, sugar, television, gossiping, shopping, cheating….you get the idea, right?) We have all been there. The POWER comes from admitting it!

When kids cut themselves... simply to FEEL... take that in for a minute.

Why do so many of our children today, why do they CUT themselves just to feel. When I was a kid, I don’t remember hearing a lot of that kind of behavior, certainly not like today. Last night’s ButterflyMoms workshop was incredibly powerful! We did several exercises where participants could see how putting yourself last can have a very detrimental affect on one’s self. I gave the analogy of Princess Diana’s wedding dress. Imagine that your life is like her stunning wedding dress, but that over time you keep wringing it out more and more as you sacrifice who you are as you almost exclusively give to other people. Over time the dress becomes more like the lace curtains you see in the abandoned houses with the broken windows.

Princess Di had one of the most famous wedding dresses of all time with silk taffeta, ivory tulle and lace, and a 25 foot long train.

We act like if we just stay OUT OF OUR BODIES our lives will magically transform. What they will ACTUALLY do is they will SYSTEMATICALLY FADE AWAY. The world is full of examples of people who followed what they were told and shut themselves off. They let the voices of those outside of themselves be more powerful than their inner voice. For those of you who are FEELING A CONFLICT INSIDE YOURSELF REJOICE! Rejoice that you are still FEELING! Be THANKFUL that you are still getting FEEDBACK from your TRUE/AUTHENTIC SELF letting you know that you are still in there!

In your own life, look at how others before you, both men and women did what they were told and completely neglected their inner voice, their inner light. The best-selling author Dr. Wayne Dyer talks about how cemeteries are filled with people WITH THEIR MUSIC STILL IN THEM!

Where is your “music”? Think of the little girl (or boy) inside of you. RIGHT NOW…How do you treat her (or him)? REALLY PAY ATTENTION HERE. What kind of time do you make for you inner child? What kindness, space, attention, love, do you show? How do you feel about your inner child? NOTICE! Last night at the 20th ButterflyMoms workshop (YAY 20th!!!!) We played with a little exercise where the women who attended were given an assignment…Let’s say you have three kids. You would usually not completely ignore one of those kids and give everything you had to the other two, well since most of the women in our group do have two kids I asked them to try this exercise: Add one more kid to your list of children, add YOUR LITTLE SELF as one of your children. Make time for her as you do your other children. Time to dress, time to teach, time to listen to, time to hear, time to acknowledge. Just like you would not leave one of your own kids behind learn to not leave YOUR SELF behind, otherwise the lace curtains that hang from those sad, abandoned houses will become an analogy for where your life is heading. (DEEP BREATH) :)! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! YES! :)! Write me with questions or comments if you need help removing this block from your life.
