Dear Coach Me Maria Fans,

Don’t have a lot of time today? GREAT! That is why I make these videos short, sweet and powerful!

What a beautiful day to be alive! So many of us wake up and condition ourselves to focus on the HALF EMPTY LIFE… The consequences of that are horrifying. That is the road to living a boring, painful life.

Got two minutes? Then watch today’s CMM video and get yourself out of your icky ‘unnatural state’ and back to your yummy ‘natural state’ of LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Simply Click here to watch this week’s video… If you have trouble cut & paste this link… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IprQvfjMt4o

Remember that LIFE IS RIGGED IN YOUR FAVOR!

Love,

Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

YOUR LITTLEST VOICE…

 

 

 

TODAY, AS YOU ENTER YOUR INNER WORLD WITH THE HELP OF THE BUTTERFLYMOMS BLOG, GIVE YOUR SELF THE GIFT OF TAKING A DEEP, LUSCIOUS CLEANSING BREATH…. IN… HOLD……… OUT……..…AHHHHHHH. NOW WIGGLE YOUR TOESIES….GROUND YOUR SELF…. FEEL HOW VEEEEEEEERY GOOD IT FEELS TO FEEL…YESSSSSSSSSSSSS! It’s all FEEDBACK TO GET YOU BACK TO YOUR JOY…. YOUR CHOICE… Now let’s begin today’s adventure…

Sweet ButterflyMoms,

Inside of each one of us is a voice. It is our original voice, a voice without fear, a voice that is the core essence of who we are. Over time, as we develop our brain, the ability to communicate and the desire to be accepted by others covers over that little voice. Like a once precious childhood item that gets buried in a stuffy attic we lose our deepest connection to who we are. Over time more and more stuff gets piled up in that attic and soon the task of finding it seems so HUGE that we put it off…many times until it is too late.

DEEP BREATH HERE….AHHHHHHHHHHH!

Our world is shifting. I’ve written a lot about that. Are you feeling it? Thirty years ago if a man cried he was weak. If you went to a mental health specialist, you were crazy. If you worked, you were a bad mom. If you were gay, you were an abomination and somehow seen as not human. Although there are some people that still believe in these, for the most part society overall has done a huge shift into awareness and acceptance. As a whole our society has moved up the chakras and is now starting to enter the heart….AHHHHHHHH, the magic of the fourth chakra! The heart, energetically speaking is that meeting place where your lower self meets your higher self. It is the bridge of those two worlds. Without your heart there is deep and permanent chasm of disconnection.

In many ways your little voice, for many of us, is that of our hearts. It reminds me of a very young child who has much older siblings that are always louder and more forceful about what gets done and who gets heard. Can you picture what I mean? How is your heart feeling today? Be present with what feedback comes back. There is no good. There is no bad. Feelings are feelings. If you have not used yours in a while they may be a bit overwhelming but just be present with them for they are the guidance system towards finding your little voice. 🙂

Love to you! (and lots of it!)

Great big hug luscious hugs,

Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

🙂

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 4:30am 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.

Let’s Get JEKYLL With IT!

Joy being Joyous!!!

Good morning my Beautiful ButterflyMoms!

I want to give a SHOUT OUT to all the ButterflyDads out there! I actually get almost as many responses from them as I do ButterflyMoms which is AWESOME! I am deeply honored and humbled! Guess that means that we are all drawn to that deep sense of peace 🙂

Where I am the sun is shining, inside and outside. We had a big presentation this morning. My stress level was through the roof. The presentation is now over and went beautifully well. In the afterglow I can see the deep chasm from how very stressed I was and how great I feel now. All that WORRY and ICKY energy was a waste, as most WORRY and ICKY energy is 😉

TRIGGERS, we all have them. SOMEONE or SOMETHING enters your “space”, if you get a CHARGE (REACTION) it means there is a message/lesson/something to pay attention to. Do you listen or do you “kill the messenger”?

Untangling Life's Mysteries Can Be FUN!

We all have sides of light and sides of darkness. There is no light without the dark. Dark balances the light and vice versa. It is not about GOOD or BAD that’s when we start creating LABELS and limiting ourselves. Be on the lookout for when something feels YUMMY or when it feels ICKY. They are there to guide you back into alignment, in other words, YOUR HAPPY PLACE.

When we enter into fear or anger it activates our dark side, our DEFENSE, because we feel UNSAFE. Today, notice when you do this. For me, one of the ways I enter into my defense is that I noticed myself start yelling.  When that happens if I don’t bring awareness to it, the yellling continues or increases. What are you defense triggers? Where do you see this in your own life?

The universe is also communicating with us. It is everywhere and once you start noticing you are going to be amazed at how magical the world is. Think of the story of the werewolf. Do you remember that his DARK SIDE came out when his TRIGGER, the moon, came out. And then there was the story of Doctor Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde….all about the dark side. It’s all around you. Bring up your awareness and play in the world. If you are suffering you are not playing. Choose playing and see how fun the world can be when you embrace BOTH your dark and light sides!

THE Key Ingredient in Being a Mama…..KIDS!

Being in the moment - Chillaxing!!!! 😉

When we are in RAT-RACE MODE we lose our perspective and everything starts blending into one big mess. That is actually a great image if you can go with it. Each time you are in SUPER STRESS MODE all the boundaries of your life begin to fall away and you are left with everything in a big pile.

Think about a fabulous dinner with your favorite appetizer, salad, food, drink and dessert. Mmmmmmm….Can you see it? Can you smell it? Can you taste? Mmmmmmmmm! This is what your life is like when you are:  Grounded, Happy, Breathing, In “What gift does this moment bring?” mode, Present, Noticing, Not Judging, Trusting. You will have some of your best days when you are in this space! It’s always available to you. It’s free. Nothing to do but be YOU! And for each of us our “YOU” feels GREAT!!!

Now when you start: Fearing, Worrying, Not Breathing, Disconnecting from your feelings, Judging others, Judging yourself, Shutting down, Yelling, it’s like you take all that wonderful food and throw it all into a gigantic blender. Mmmmmmmm? How good does that taste? Not so great? But how can that be? It has all your favorite things in it? The answer is that the boundaries are gone. Repeat after me….

🙂 🙂 🙂 Good boundaries = Happy Butterfly Moms!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

INSPIRATION can come from anywhere! One of our biggest GIFTS as Mothers is our children! No matter how they came into your life, whether through your body or someone else’s they have come into your life for a magical reason. Nothing happens by “accident”.

One of our biggest GIFTS as Mothers is our children! No matter how they came into your life, whether through your body or someone else’s they have come into your life for a magical reason. Nothing happens by “accident” and if filter what is going on RIGHT NOW, in this moment, and ask, What has this come to teach me? then you will unleash the most amazing adventures in this lifetime. The choice, as always, is yours. 🙂

My stepson Christopher’s advocate, Sarah Commerford, came into our office the other day. Sarah was instrumental in getting him evaluated and on the right educational track because she very knowledgeable and a fabulous listener. She has SUCH a wonderful energy about her. She shared that she her son, for years, had been asking her to start cooking food from around the world. Our kids (no matter their age) can see things about us that we might not be able to see. They can be a short of guide if we are open to the messages they bring. Finally one day she decided to do it! She started this amazing blog where she is taking her passion and sharing with others. This is what her blog says…

Sarah Commerford, founder of "What's Cooking in Your World?"

What’s Cooking in your World?

Here is here story… About a year ago, my son Tim asked me if I would cook a meal from a different country at least one night a week. It sounded like a cool idea, as I love to cook and am blessed with a family of adventurous eaters, but like so many other things I think about yet never do, I put the idea on the back burner, so to speak, and pretty much left it there to simmer.

Last night we watched Julia&Julia. When it was over, Timmy said, “Well, if SHE could get through an entire cookbook in 365 days, why couldn’t you make a meal from a different country once a week, huh?” – Hmmm…the little sh*t threw down a challenge!

The Almanac lists 193 countries in the world. Turns out, this is a somewhat dynamic number though, as new countries are continually formed depending on political agendas – usually war. Given that reality, this project will try to reflect our ever changing global map, while doing justice to each country’s regional cuisine. In the process, I hope to expand my world views and cultural insight, one meal at a time.

So here’s my goal: Prepare 1, possibly 2 meals per week from a different country, until I’ve worked my way through all the World’s countries in alphabetical order.

First stop: Afghanistan….To take this adventure created by ButterflyMom Sarah go to http://whatscookinginyourworld.blogspot.com/ It is a wonderful way to support someone’s passion, give yourself and family a wonderful adventure, connect, and ADD DEEP FUN into your HOME!

Remember that old saying that we barely read any more, HAVE YOU HUGGED YOUR CHILD TODAY? Even if they are far away picture them, take a deep breath, and see them for the wonderful messengers they are, even when the message is ICKY right now. This too shall pass, fortunately and unfortunately.

Our Children Have Much to Teach... Are YOU listening?

Come back tomorrow and feed your soul.  You feed your body every day but what are you doing to feed your soul?

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaa
