Dearest ButterflyMoms,

I usually write on Fridays but I could not let Thanksgiving go by without reaching out to you, so this week I’m writing on Thursday just this special week! :)!

Soooooooooooooooooo, here we all are on Thanksgiving and we all KNOW what we are SUPPOSED to “do”, or rather what this holiday is “supposed” to be about, but when it all comes down to it, we all have VERY SPECIFIC ideas of what it SHOULD look like. Who SHOULD be there. Who SHOULDN’T be there.  Where it SHOULD be. Who SHOULD cook. What kind of mood people are SUPPOSED to be in. Who SHOULD host. Who SHOULD cook what.  I myself fell into this human “trap” this year. To make matters worse I found myself telling others about my SHOULD. For this I got sympathy. I got to feel RIGHT. But what did I really GET? What does that transmit out into the world for both me and the person who is sympathizing with me? What we were actually doing is simply tuning into “bottom-feeder” energy by turning away from the most powerful force in the world, LOVE.  You cannot attract the FABULOUS life you want by sending out those kinds of silly SHOULD vibes! With awareness comes choice. Where you are in your life right now is a result of all the choices you have made, especially the choice of how you let LOVE seep into your world.

Even on Thanksgiving, or maybe I can say, ESPECIALLY on Thanksgiving we notice things that we might not. Instead of your SHOULDS not lining up how about today you see if you can find ALL THE LOVE AROUND YOU….in the people, in the food, in the details, in nature, in the bonds, in the places, in the things you don’t notice that are around you every minute of every day. I invite you to tune into the universe’s LOVE “station” today and see how your life unfolds.


Great big hugs,



PS What would help some of you even more is if you sent a few friends this to read and you worked on it together especially on THANKSGIVING! Remember birds of a feather (no pun intended)….not everyone will be open but for those who are you are gifting them the gift of themselves. There “ain’t” nothin’ bettah than that!


  1. Thanks for the post! My favorite phrase is, “I am potty trained. I don’t SHOULD on myself and I will thank you not to SHOULD on me!” Happy Thanksgiving. Linda

  2. On my way to Thanksgiving dinner I had a moment of ‘should’ but then so quickly I knew that was one of those vows I don’t have anymore. I was on my way to an afternoon of love and it was great. I am waiting for the stuffed feeling to pass but when you sit with love it is worth it. Love you Maria, your words are exactly right on!

  3. Now, I am part of a very large common name: “beautiful butterfly Momshut” and was very happy that, you are the founder KC significant celebrate the day of love and affection with me. For the many grandiose ideas are a gift of reflection and action in each area. Thank you very much you are a great soul … ILY

  4. ***The magical concept idea: The joint meeting should be a celebration of love and joy and all the time is characterized by these energies. Friendly community, susceptible to magical cooking, fertility new awareness and empathy for other cultures, are the topics. which spells and rituals in the year 2010/11 are magical particularly promising***

    **Together magical cooking and eating is more fun …@
    Who is tired of vegetating lonely at the stove before him, has the right feel – Dinner for one is to look funny, but not as an everyday experience.
    Whether with or loved ones or friends and acquaintances – magic together to cook a lot more fun. And in a larger panel, the home-cooked food tastes the same twice as good.

    **Together magical cooking prepare well…@
    This relieves the common magical cooking party as possible can take place, you should invest some time into planning. The best moves you off with the organizing, so that each one serves as a contact.

    • Where is cooked? If all the necessary cooking utensils provided (pots, pans and bowls that are large enough, special equipment for special meals, dishes and cutlery in sufficient quantity)?

    • What’s cooking? If, for the first time together with friends, cooking, one should rather limited to simple, tasty dishes such as a Mediterranean vegetable stew, pasta with sauce, salad and desserts such as fruit salad, ice cream or cake. If all of savvy home cooks are, you can of course also equal to dare to elaborate menus, but most important is first of all the fun of the Community whittle cut, and fry. Fruit salad

    • What are the ingredients, especially spices are present, which are missing?
    • Who buys what?
    • When what is prepared? Importance of a timetable for the magic Kochtag arranged everything is going on, no one gets in stress and eventually all schmauen in mind peace.

    **Magical cooking ideas for body and soul…@
    In a relaxed atmosphere with appropriate music can be adjusted so already perfect on the common evenings or days and let the anticipation grow.
    Magical cook together: Do you know people from different regions? Well, great – we / they organize in a romantic atmosphere but regular magical cooking clubs, alternately each contributes a starter, main course or a dessert of his magical and creative ideas. And please get involved with another delicious creative recipes. Is pretty amazing …

    **Holiday Party…@
    Stand up straight spiritual holidays before? Whether Easter or Christmas, Feast of Tabernacles or the end of Ramadan – in all religions, there are special meals on special occasions. Why not organize a celebratory feast and tell your Mitköchinnen and chefs about the tradition of this feast.

    **Small magical assistance from the Internet…@
    Those who prefer organic food finds, on the Internet simmer with similar interests: For instance, the “beautiful butterfly Mammhut CLUB” for bio-dynamic farming practices, the, cook yourself connotations of core ‘launched (simmer connotations of core). That helps to organize a joint meeting with cooking strangers in your area and also provides recipes and shopping list. This keeps your organization required to a minimum.
    Because, as the masses know that the heart is through his stomach, many other cooking dating communities at the same time a brokerage for singles – and why not, it turns out, whether one has a similar taste. And at the rendezvous at the cooking pot shown that several cooks spoil the broth or to flavor together better.

    PS: I hope my writing you like and you know. I am an artist and not the author of the letter.
    With much love and greetings written .. Amore mio …Ti amo…un bacio nel vento…
