She is also a an intuitive, full spectrum healer and an expert in neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), chakra balancing and energy healing.

 Usui System of Natural Healing (Usui Shiki Ryoho)
Within the Usui System of Reiki practice there are three degrees or levels of training; each building on the other and each outlining a unique, specific scope of practice. The daily hands-on self-treatment practice taught in Maria’s Reiki I class provides the foundation for all levels of training.
Becoming attuned to Reiki is a wonderful life changing process. The only pre-requisite to learning Reiki is an open heart and a desire to grow and learn. Anyone who desires to learn Reiki can learn it and share it with the people and pets in their life.

Once you are attuned to Reiki by a qualified Reiki Master, like Maria, it will be with you always for the rest of your life. Reiki inspires you with ideas, insights and understandings; comfort you when you are in pain or emotional distress; support your natural healing processes; reduce the stress response; and give you an outlet to share love and healing.

Whether your desire is to practice Reiki for yourself or on others, learning Reiki is not just an intellectual process. Reiki is an empowered practice and development takes time and practice. Give yourself the time and space to integrate emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually what has been initiated within each degree level. Maria’s programs are structured the way they are in order to provide you with the foundation and depth necessary for carrying the practice of Reiki out into your life.



What You Get With Your Reiki I Degree
The Reiki I program prepares you for a daily self-practice to support your own healing and growth; and to confidently give treatment to family, friends, and pets. The Reiki precepts, history, and other topics are also covered at this level. Maria’s Reiki I program includes:

  • Half-Day Intensive learning how to best use your energy
  • Individualized one-on-one attention to develop your skills and confidence
  • Your own Reiki I packet
  • Reiki I certificate
  • Support even after the training

Classes are extremely small so you get a lot of personal attention.

WHAT is the SIGNIFICANCE of DECEMBER 21, 2012?

- cat meowDearest ButterflyMoms,

HOLY HOLY HOLY! WHAT IS GOING ON? Have you noticed that things have been a “little” crazy on planet earth in the last few years? On all levels! On the heals of one of the worst storms in American history, America got hit a week ago today with the HEART-OPENING Connecticut school massacre. Meanwhile in China on the same day 22 children were stabbed in their school in central province of Henan. Typhoon Bopha’s death toll keeps rising to over 1,000 members of our human race dead and thousands more with no shelter. In Syria… you get the picture!  There is A LOT going on, on our planet and today is one of the most powerful energetic days! There is a huge shift that has been brewing…

Today’s date… December 21, 2012 coincides with the ending of the Mayan long-count calendar as well as a number of other astronomical events. Since disasters sell, a whole industry has been created through movies, books, articles and websites to sell today’s date as the end of the world. In reality it represents the ending of time as we currently know it and the beginning of a new cycle of time within nature that will allow for the expansion of human awareness and consciousness. We are all currently living in a real life prophecy that has been studied, talked about and passed down throughout history. We have entered a time in which humanity will learn to re-connect and understand what our true purpose for living is and discover our ultimate role in this place that we call the universe.

- cat now  0Some Cool History… (in bite-size pieces)
The Mayans were highly skilled and advanced mathematicians and astronomers, and developed and lived by a 13 month calendar that was precisely synchronized and in tune with the cosmic and natural cycles of our own Milky Way galaxy; so much so that they knew and were able to calculate with precision the dates of solar eclipses ages before they actually happened and also the date of a nearly 26,000 year long astronomical cycle, called the Great Cycle or precision of the equinoxes, that would come to a full completion during the winter solstice on the date according to the Mayan long count date 13.0.0.0.0, or in our calendar, December 21, 2012. This date also coincides with the galactic alignment of the December solstice sun with the Galactic equator, an alignment of the Earth, Sun, and the Milky Way center at what is known as the “Dark Rift”.  This alignment places our Sun in direct alignment with the Galactic equator, a process of the revolution of the Sun orbiting the center of the Milky Way galaxy that takes approximately 225 million years to complete.

-cat nowAccording to the Maya, the date or period around December 21, 2012 represents the ending of time as we know it to be but also a period of great change, renewal, transition, and beginning. The Maya, along with many different Native American cultures, believed Earth goes through various ages or worlds, and that the prophecy date December 21, 2012 marks the ending of our current age, the Fourth world, and the beginning of the new age, the Fifth world. The Fifth world is the next stage in the cycle of life and nature. The transition into the Fifth world allows for new cosmic energy and forces to come into our solar system, causing changes in the Earths physical vibrational frequency, as well as, metaphysical changes that affect the entire planet. Today’s date represents an important shift of the ages, a point in time in which there will be a global shift in human consciousness, the ending of our current physical world the way that we know it to be now, and the beginning of a new type of world; a world in which the mind, body, and spirit will come become interconnected within the universal consciousness of life.  They believe that after this transformation is complete that everything negative in the world will be forgotten and that instead there will be a world filled with more love, peace, and happiness for everyone and everything in it.  They believe that this is the time where we will collectively learn to become spiritual beings and live according to spirituality, and with this change in life and living it will bring upon the “Golden Age” on Earth.

More Thank Just the Maya…

Other cultures and civilizations that have it in their beliefs and traditions that the world is indeed changing and that the prophecy date December 21, 2012 is to be a date of great significance and importance include:

- cat nowEven thousands of years ago these cultures predicted that the following physical signs would begin to occur around the world we get closer to the date, including:

-Increased Global Warming
-Increased Severe Weather
-Increased Earthquakes
-Increased Tsunamis

They were right on! The Earth is changing itself physically and also in other ways due to magnetic, gravitational, solar, and other universal forces. We are on the cusp of a very important transition of time that past civilizations spent their entire lives studying, talking about, and waiting for, and after the transition is complete the world that we currently know and live by will be transformed into a world that past civilizations believed would mark the beginning of the “Golden Age” on Earth.

KaleidoscopeNow What?

According to Native American belief, they invited us to begin to learn to understand our higher selves (beyond the ego) and discover our true selves and what our purpose for being is, and with that knowledge learn to live in a world with unified love, compassion, happiness, and universal consciousness.  It’s sometimes very painful to live in a world filled with daily negativity: self-hate, fear, worry, shootings, drone killings, road rage and even family arguments.

The universe itself has no negativity in it by nature, only love and compassion for the life and consciousness contained within it. The gift of this date is to remind us to investigate and understand who you really are at the deepest level, and demonstrate what true love, compassion, and forgiveness are in the world. Knowledge is power.  No one can make this shift happen for you, it needs to come from within you and your desire to change in order to make it happen.  We need to continue to work together in the present moment and remember our true purpose here on this planet that we call Earth.

Simply put…The belief that we have the power to SHIFT THE SITUATION by simply bringing in the love and pulling out the compassion for one another. Most religions around the world teach these principles as being important. If you want to live a life worth living, align with this crazy little thing called LOVE!! 🙂

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

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.

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

WHAT PULLS YOU INTO THE WORLD OF BUTTERFLYMOMS?

DSCN5959Dearest ButterflyMoms,

Every week that you come here to devour the ButterflyMoms blog, you are being drawn into a very sacred and nurturing circle of magnificent energy. Out of all the things you could be doing, a part of you chose to come here to the ButterflyMoms blog. I take that calling to come here very seriously for that “signal” you get in the “firestorm of busy” has to be strong. The more I do my “work” of grounding, letting go, protecting, deepening and expanding my energy, the more your intuition will be called to the ButterflyMoms’ channel.  It is happening on a level that is “invisible” to most of the five sense and  brain, instead it comes more in through the heart, really. If you find yourself being drawn here celebrate because you are definitely on to something! It is the same special something that magically opens morning glories every morning, makes the sun rise and the egg find its perfect sperm.

DSCN6011There is a magical channel here on planet earth. To be truly happy you need to tune into it, but how? Little babies seem to know how to find it but then somewhere along the way early on we override our innate joy ability and learn a different way of living and being. In the process of getting to a “safe” place in our life, we lose that ability to be happy.  Most of what we learned will not get us aligned with that channel. Chasing it won’t get you there. In fact, no matter how much money, intelligence, education or influence you have, there is only one way to access it. The only way is by LIVING IN THE PRESENT. You know that cheesy saying… “The past is history, the future is a mystery and today is a gift,” Well, it’s not today that is a gift, it’s right now….. and now right now…. and now right now…. you get the idea. NOW is the gift. Realize this. Yes, you have read this concept a million times but have you TRULY let it sink in? Want to find out? Do this simple, little test:

(DRUM ROLL) BUTTERFLYMOMS TEST QUESTION: Answer the following question in “YES” or “NO” format. “Are you happy RIGHT NOW IN THIS MOMENT?” YES or NO. (ENTER JEOPARDY WAITING MUSIC)

WARNING! Now this is where most people fall into a trap…. If someone answers: “Ya, I’m actually feeling pretty ok, right now. My life if fine. I’m actually pretty content.” (ENTER SOUND OF GONG OR ANNOYING BUZZER)

Uhm, excuse me! Are you not an amazing creation working in synchronistic harmony with all the miraculous systems in your body? Need a reminder? Here is a little rundown of just some of the things your body does EVERY DAY see if this helps you snap out of the land of humdrum…

``````human bodyYou have 30,000,000,000 (thirty billion) working sections in your brain.

You have 131,000,000 photoreceptors in your eyes.

You have 24,000 hair-like cells in your inner ear which react to sound and convert it to nerve impulses.

Your small intestine has a surface area of 970,000 square feet.

Your heart beats 100,000 times and pumps 2,000 gallons of blood every day.

Your liver manufactures more than 1,000 different enzymes, each controlling a different chemical reaction.

You have 60,000 miles of blood vessels in your body.

You breathe 438 cubic feet of air each day.

There are 35,000,000 gland cells in your stomach to allow it to break down food without digesting itself.

`````````````human body

Your kidneys have 40 miles of tubing and clean 500 gallons of your blood every day.

Every cell has 1,000,000,000,000 (one million million) bits of data in it. (That is as much information as 10,000 encyclopedia-sized books.)

Your body has 639 muscles that must work together.

Our joints must move 25,000,000 times in our lifetime without wearing out.

There are 30,000,000,000,000 (thirty million million) cells in our body with 10,000 functions.

HOLY SHIT! Did you put any of these things on your to do list? Nope, you didn’t and they still get done! Pretty damn cool!!!!! The answer above can easily be diagnosed as a case of NOTLD Syndrome…(Night Of The Living Dead Syndrome) where people go around existing in their lives like zombies. Unfortunately, it is so wide-spread that people don’t notice it when you have it, they only notice it when you don’t.

Hmmmmm…. Don’t believe me? Try this…Walk up to someone you know, look glum and exhale a lot. When they ask you why you are feeling so down tell them nothing happened, you just woke up that way, just feeling tired and icky. They will most shake their head and empathize, perhaps even share their own feeling tired and icky story. Now walk up to someone all happy and full of energy, beaming from every pore! When they ask you why you are so happy tell them you just woke up really happy. Most likely at some point your good energy will rub them the wrong way and they will get annoyed or talk behind your back to other who also like to share feeling tired and icky stories. This is, in general, the mode society lives in, but this is starting to crumble away. Those who are attracted to the ButterflyMoms blog are the light workers who are shining a path for those who will come after us. We are the antidote to the NOTLD Syndrome! We are doing amazing work, even without realizing it. We cannot help it because it is what we were born to do.

DSCN5851For those who are new to ButterflyMoms and don’t know, I am a Reiki Master Teacher and I am also a full-spectrum healer. So when you read the ButterflyMoms blog or share it with others, know that when I write the blog, I weave a lot of Reiki energy into each and every word. Whoever reads ButterflyMoms gets directly energized by universal Reiki love. (The cool thing about Reiki is that if you don’t want or need it, it goes to where in the world it is most needed. I’ve always loved that fact!) Now I’ve been writing this blog for almost four years and some weeks we get over 1,000 people from all over the world. Imagine with me if each one of those people is receiving Reiki think of how much love I’m calling in and sending out into the world! AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL! FEELS GREAT! FEELS VERY ALIVE!

I can see and feel things starting to energetically shift. I’ve gotten many more coaching inquiries within the last two weeks than ever before. This week I’m also proud to say that we sold 13 of the book Mom Entrepreneur Extraordinaire, which I co-wrote. I am holding my first workshop in Portugal next week. (Details are below.) Also, while introducing myself at an International Women in Portugal meeting a woman named Samantha spontaneously yelled out, “Wait ButterflyMoms!? No way!” Her friend from South Africa had just a few days earlier sent her my ButterflyMoms blog! How very cool is that!?! I love that I’m living my life’s purpose of BEING THE FIRE THAT IGNITES PEOPLE’s SOUL! If I can help you get into your alignment please let me know. I am here to fly!!!!!!

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

DSCN5847WHAT 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.

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

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!

LOVE BIG in the world THIS WEEK… and start with yourself!
Great BIG luscious hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

I have been doing the ButterflyMoms workshops for months and months now. It is hard to believe but each one is different based on who is there. Each person adds to the “flavor” of the event, as does the day, weather, food, temperature, lighting, etc. Everything factors in to create a very unique “unfolding” each week. I have no idea why but last night’s was one of my VERY favorite. The people who showed up were present and willing to be vulnerable. Magic happens when those two things come together. It is one of most incredible feelings to watch people, especially women, especially moms, shift from pain to AHA!!!! (deep breath here!) :)!!!!

I want to feel happy and play more in the world!

It breaks my heart that I see sooooooo many women struggling with life. It is only now in my 40’s that I’ve truly started finding the “tools” that help me regulate my energy, intention, focus and flow. For soooooooo many years I kept hitting that wall of frustration, trying everything I knew to break free. No matter what I tried I just felt ICKY. Not that I did not have moments of joy, of course I did, but not like now. Now I have the most amazing experience…like going from black and white (rabbit-eared) TV to  FULL-SPECTRUM COLOR FLAT SCREEN TV…with BOSE surround sound! OH YA BABY! YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TALKIN’ BOUT! 😉

So the next step of my journey is leading me to do a day long workshop at one of the coolest places on earth… The Peace Abbey in Sherborn, Massachusetts. It’s one of THE MOST magical places you can go and yet most people speed right by it and miss all it has to offer… much like we do in our life. I believe that when you stand on the side of love, wonderful things start to unfold. I am feeling this wonderfully delicious surge of energy around doing this event. It will have all of the elements you need to get happy and grounded in your life. There will be wonderfully yummy homemade vegetarians meals, incredible workshops, shamanic journeying, yoga, journaling, meditation…etc.

I Want Others To Feel Good Too...There are Soooooooo Many Princess in The World Who Have Forgotten That They are!

This year is a year of self-care for me. For too long I have been neglecting my body and my needs. To be the best ______________ (I can fill in the blank with any of the following: MAMA, DAUGHTER, WIFE, LOVER, FRIEND, SISTER, BOSS, NEIGHBOR, ENTREPRENEUR, WRITER, BUSINESS OWNER, ARTIST…) then I need to start with me FIRST. I want to be able to offer an affordable way others can have the same gift! I hope you come on this wonderful journey with me. I promise you will not regret it…unless you decide not to come! 😉

So here are the details… I’ve put them in this form so you can not only get more information so you can sign up, but also so you can take this paragraph and help spread the word… Please do. We want a wonderful mix of people there so we can create a wonderful “recipe” of flavors as we do in the weekly ButterflyMoms workshops.  Here it is…

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.

 

*Every Friday Morning, as a way of honoring Sophia’s soul, Maria gets up at 4:30am to write the weekly ButterflyMoms blog. Hundreds of people read it every week to feed their souls. Maria started writing the blog in 2009 and has written EVERY Friday since.
