A Recipe For Depression and an Unfulfilled Life


Here is an oldie but a goodie… Let me know how you feel after reading it!

ButterflyMoms's Blog

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…

Are you Breathing Correctly? (Week 7 of the Butterfly Moms Series)


https://www.youtube.com/edit?video_id=WIQCVFm0jzk

There are three basic elements that we can all check in on. Air, Water and Sleep. Today Maria will give you a simple breathing technique that will help you master living in the present moment. Please leave your comments below.


IMG_2536Dearest BFMs,

Here we are with one of the very last written Butterfly Moms written blogs. As of next week you can read all four years of these blogs on there. They will be easy to search. Going forward you’ll have the 30 Second Mini-Coaching every day and on Fridays you will now have a video blog. Today’s was about what to do if you (or someone you love, even kids) cannot fall asleep. WordPress won’t allow URLs so just go to YouTube and type in the words Butterfly Moms for this week’s video blog!❤

AWESOME UPDATES….

* The website will be done within the next week…that is really exciting because I’ve been working on that for 2 years! When that happens you will be able to go there to get everything without having to log into Facebook or WordPress! It will be much easier for you to see everything you want and to share it when you wish🙂

* Since most people cannot see the video blog here. I’ll post it separately. Next week it will be on the new site so no worries there! If you want to see any of the video blogs you can go to YouTube and type in the words Butterfly Moms. You will get all six in the Butterfly Moms video blog series.

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

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

*Every Friday Morning, as a way of honoring her daughter Sophia’s soul, Maria has written the weekly BUTTERFLYMOMS BLOG which has of July 2013 also turned into a video blog. Hundreds of people have read it every week to feed their souls. Maria started writing the blog in May 2009 and has written EVERY Friday since. Maria is a Reiki master and every time you read it you are showered with healing love.  Tell your friends… https://butterflymoms.wordpress.com and spread the love!!! FEED YOUR SOUL!!!!!

What’s Bothering You?


Audrey Hepburn.. I'm possibleDearest BFMs,

It’s been a week since I’ve been back from a year in Europe and the transition back has been what pilots call a “hard landing”. Sometimes we miscalculate our lives. We think that we will naturally transition into another phase but, in reality, we get side-swiped. It does not feel good. Dealing with it can be messy so many of us bury it…. where it grows, festers and rots until when it comes out it is much nastier than the original mess. We all “know” this but still many times we choose to bury it.

At last night's workshop we all talked about the energy we all got and lessons we learned from Princess Diana!

At last night’s workshop we all talked about the energy we all got and lessons we learned from Princess Diana!

There is so much going on right now that I’m burying it some of it and dealing with some. To be fair, I’m not really burying it but rather putting it to the side until I can get my bearings. Something has shifted. I feel more grounded, in a way. I notice that after last night’s amazing workshop, the first one I’ve done on US soil in a year, after doing them EVERY week for over a year… my intuition is even stronger. I’ve fed that part of me that believes in service. I can “read” people in a deeper way. One of the amazing women there knew me when we were both very little and she shared that even when I was a little girl I helped her feel included when she was the new kid and felt rejected. I am thankful she shared that with me. I love that someone has the image of me even when I was little. Somehow it makes me feel happy from the inside out because it’s about my core.

We are all going through something. We are on planet earth, after all. What are you going to do with what is coming at you? Are you going to let it squish you? Are you going to reject  and curse it?…OR…. Are you going to say YES to facing it? To tickling it? (yup, I said “tickle”) To ask what the lesson is? What the gift is? You can play with what is in front of you… which really means un-attaching  and having fun from a more big picture point-of-view… OR… being very serious, detailed, rigid. The best solutions to life’s problems involve a little bit of both… but fits best under the 80-20 rule. Right now most people do 80% serious which I see in my coaching clients causes much sadness. If they switched that to 80% to saying YES to life their lives would transform to what they dreamed about as kids! I energetically hold that vision for you!

ss outsideaAWESOME UPDATES….

* The website will be done in the next two weeks…that is really exciting because I’ve been working on that for 2 years! When that happens you will be able to go there to get everything without having to log into Facebook or WordPress! It will be much easier for you to see everything you want and to share it when you wish🙂

* Since most people cannot see the video blog here. I’ll post it separately. Next week it will be on the new site so no worries there!

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

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

Dearest BFMs,

And in a blink of an eye this is the fourth week I’ve recorded a VIDEO BLOG! I’ve also been doing 30-Second Mini-Coaching sessions every day on the Butterfly Moms group. The website will be done soon that will host all of these instead of having to go through Word Press. I am shifting more and more into having the courage to do what I was meant to do which is to help you do what you were born to do!

Hope you enjoy this week’s video… because I’m teaching this while in my core, you’ll notice an immediate life shift alignment in yours! Thankfully, it’s CONTAGIOUS!!!!

Here you go.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NlDByZOYhhc

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

*Every Friday Morning, as a way of honoring her daughter Sophia’s soul, Maria has written the weekly BUTTERFLYMOMS BLOG which has of July 2013 also turned into a video blog. Hundreds of people have read it every week to feed their souls. Maria started writing the blog in May 2009 and has written EVERY Friday since. Maria is a Reiki master and every time you read it you are showered with healing love.  Tell your friends… https://butterflymoms.wordpress.com and spread the love!!! FEED YOUR SOUL!!!!!

BUTTERFLY MOMS’ FIRST EVER VIDEO BLOG EVER!


fearDearest Butterfly Moms,

Today is a very big day! For over four years I’ve written the ButterflyMoms blog EVERY FRIDAY no matter what! It’s been an amazing developmental journey! The BUTTERFLY MOMS blog even attracted the attention of one of the most powerful women on the planet, OPRAH WINFREY, and I became one of the very last guests on THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW… Today is a new era. I had to conquer my fears to grow it to the next level and here we are… We are switching from just the written blog to the video blog!

!!!!!dreams vs fearsThe very first topic is: FEAR

The question comes from Maria from West Hartford, Connecticut

QUESTION:”What is the block/fear I have with starting my new business? I have 8 years of school, am a natural, love it, peoplelove it, but I haven’t turned on the website for my business yet, even though it’s ready. How do I overcome this fear of success?

We all face fear every day. Many of us have become it’s slave… We might not even realize it because most everyone around us has done the same thing. It is normal to be small, in in-authentic lives that we were trained to live because it’s “good for us”.

Today’s short video is a wonderful way to give yourself the gift of how to release the ickies fear causes and turn it all around so FEAR IS YOUR TOOL, instead of the other way around!

Here is the link…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nY42aYcNjJ8

As always please leave your comments below! We love hearing fro you!

Great big hugs,
Mariaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

HOW TO EASILY MANIFEST A GREAT JOB!


Sun in sand summer vacationHappiness is an inside jobDearest BFMs,

For most of us summer has finally arrived! When we are kids summer is a fantastic time to really play! No school, just play and hang out! When we “grow up” things tend to be very different. For most of us, even though the warm weather beckons us, there is a lot less playing during the summers.

I have always found it pretty obscene how “vacation” time is considered a luxury. It’s almost as if “normal” is working and taking time to re-charge is only for those who have seniority. We all know that when we are depleted we do half-hearted work so why this game?

Living over in Europe you definitely see the difference! People here still work but they usually have a much better life/work balance. With the expansion of American ideals and the economic situation here that has shifted a bit, but it is still very balanced.

summer vacationSo when we are in school we have lots of vacation time, lots. Besides the random holidays that working (outside the house) adults get too, there are also the one-two weeks off for winter and then again at spring break. There is also time off for Thanksgiving and of course, the much coveted SUMMER VACATION. I have to admit that because I was a student for such a long time (… if you include my preschool, undergrad, MBA I was in school for twenty-one years! That is almost half my life!) that I found it almost impossible to be locked up in a cubicle with no outside air for the ENTIRE YEAR with the exception of one or two weeks off a year!!!!! I don’t think I’m the only one who thinks that might be somewhat unbalanced.

Americans, in general, accumulate vacation time to use one magical day that never comes. Think about that. Think of how that affects the whole country that individuals are not taking care of themselves. No judgement just noticing

I love my jobSo, today, I bring up the sticky subject of your JOB. I know there are lots of people out there without jobs but that kind of thinking is pretty fear-based. It is important to be grateful for what you have… absolutely… but, as the posted quote in yesterday’s Butterfly Moms group on Facebook read… “You can’t find happiness at the end of your journey if you don’t bring it with you all along.”

Is your job feeding your soul or sucking you dry? If you are feeling icky around this just let yourself feel it… notice you don’t die. Notice that those feelings last a lot longer if you block them, and if the ickies are coming up now, chances are that you have been blocking them. The fastest way to get sick is to block your flow. You know this. I’m not telling you anything new. You might just have been burying it… that has consequences even if you pretend it does not. No matter how icky it feels I invite you to let it wash over you and let it leak out into the grass. Imagine all that “shit” fertilizing all the plants around you. You’re holding all that in serves NO ONE and NO THING!

JOB1If you think about your JOB and you start feeling happy then it is not just giving you money, it is also feeding your soul! This is possible for all of us… just need to 1) Notice  2) Strongly Visualize  3)Feel How Good It Feels  4) Let It Go (knowing you have set the wheels in motion)… Repeat at least daily… and watch what happens!❤

Summer is a time to get lighter and happier. The sun is shining. The days are longer. It is a wonderful time to let go of what is not working and so that what is meant to come in will come in!
