Now onto the ButterflyMoms blog…

Good morning beautiful ButterflyMoms!

Today’s blog is one I am re-printing from last summer. I spent last summer in Portugal living out my dream of letting them spend a summer in Portugal like I used to when I was a kid. This year I cannot afford to do that but I still want to capture the essence of me when I am there…this blog holds that magic in it. I hope you enjoy it all the way to the tips of your toes …and beyond!:) Let’s journey back to June 12, 2010 for some soul-rockin’ fun…. :)! Here we go!!!!!!!!!!!!…

Yesterday’s blog brought examples of some of the vast changes that are going on in our world. There are many, many shifts. Even with all these changes most of us currently live in a world where we are completely STARVING OUR SOULS!


Think about it. What is your life based on, really? What is it based on? For many of us we live in an unconscious fog. We only really wake up when something NOTICEABLE happens like a death of someone or something, or an accident or illness. Otherwise, we completely alter our behavior and cut out our intuition to fit within the rules.

At work most of us do whatever the company/boss tells us we have to do, even when we don’t like it. Let’s say they pay you $200,000/year. Although most of us make significantly less than that, let’s go with that number because it round and big. For that amount of money (or a  lot less) you give your power to a person/group of people who tell you how you will structure your time. When you will work, when you can have “off”, when you can be with your kids. Some even let you know when you can go to the bathroom or take a break. This is sooooooo widespread that people don’t even realize that it’s happening. They feel ICKY but they don’t know why………so off to Dunkin Donuts we go to get something caffeinated and sugary to help us make it through the day, right!

Most just follow along because that is just what everyone does. If you don’t then you are weird and sometimes it even gets you fired so make sure you fit into their box, ok? (breathe with me!) I know this is hard for some of you and some might even get angry but stay with it and see where it takes you. You are safe.

I hope you kindly allow me to share this little example…I once asked one of my brothers if he wanted to go to Europe with me. I had found CRAZY CHEAP airline tickets and had a FREE place to stay. He said, “I’d love to but I have no more vacation time.” Now for most people that sounds “normal” but think about it. “WORK” takes us the best hours of your day and the best days of your life.

Most of us tolerate where we work, what we do or both. (Breathe) How does that feel for you? I can hear your mind coming into the conversation already (because mine is too 😉 I’m not saying quit tomorrow, or even ever. I’m gently suggesting you bring your awareness to your situation. Is this how you want to live having to ask permission to do the things you want when you want to do them? (Feel the answer.)  How does it feel for you? Even if it feel ICKY stay with it. Use your breath. It is there to help you process stuff. No breathing. No moving through stuff. It’s that simple!

For a simple experiment stand on a major street at rush hour (morning or night) and look at the faces of the people commuting to work. How do they look? Are they feeding their souls? Are you feeding yours? If you find that you are feeling an ICKY here AWESOME! Go with it! You know that most of the people who are going to work look like they are super psyched right! They look happy and excited that they are going to “WORK”! WHEW WHO! YA! YES! YIPEE! YAHOEY!!! And driving home from work, even better, right? They are happy to have spent a precious day of their lives living with purpose, making a difference and doing what feels right to them…right? Right? Oh,….no?  We all know it’s the opposite. 😦 Again that Beatles song, “All the lonely people, where do they all come from?”

These people, like many of us, are suffering from ANOREXIA OF THE SOUL. We have starved our souls by ignoring them, by pushing them down when they popped up because it was socially unacceptable at the time. We made ourseleves small to fit in. We have learned to do that all our lives and then we wonder why drink, smoke, cheat, shop, eat…..(pick your poison). It’s because we miss ourselves! We act like we are human who occasionally have spiritual experience when in reality it’s the opposite. We are spirits/energy having a human experience!

What are some of your signs that you are suffering from Anorexia of the Soul? To have a better life, you have to start with AWARENESS, anything else is just a Band-Aid.

A gentle reminder that each time you come to you are feeding your soul! You are acknowledging it and asking what it needs. The voice might be very faint for some of you but keep at it. Your soul wants to talk to you. It wants you HAPPY! Just like with Aladin and the lamp, you are its master!

Some people don’t want to take the journey for fear of pain. Well, look around and ask is the pain of not being my TRUE me worth this feeling of constantly treading water? Don’t worry. Wherever you are is exactly where you are supposed to be! Because YOU are reading this perhaps you are ready for something a bit more…..oh, I don’t know…something a little bit more YOU?!

Great big hugs,


PS Today we got 153 people to the site. AMAZING! One ButterflyMom Vice President told me she has changed her homepage to be the so she can start her day with the intention of feeding her soul. WHAT AN HONOR!! Keep spreading the word! Keep exploring YOU because YOU are THE most interesting person you will EVER meet! :)!!!!!!! OH YA!!!! :)!

  1. i have been far more than blessed when it comes to employment…the very fact i’ve even BEEN employed at times!!!! i won’t go too far back in my employment history, but i have recently had to leave a position that i LOVED!!!! get up with a smile, go with a smile, share a smile (and lots of hugs) and come home with a smile…..when that was stolen (and yes, i will say stolen without elaborating), i knew it was time to go. i was devastated because of what was done to me…what was stolen from me and what, i felt, i would never have again!!! but, as always, God has better things in mind for all of us, and had it all worked out before the stroke of a clock of time….and i have been blessed exceedingly, abundantly with yet ANOTHER place of employ, when i wake up smiling, go smiling, share smiles (and even MORE hugs) and come home smiling!!!! people can NOT dictate your soul…only God can. and i have been reminded, once again, that when i allow Him to do the work, and not me, it is ALL joy!!!!
    so thank you, maria, for waking up that part of people. and continuing sharing the wonderful gift that the Omniscient, Omnipresent, Everlasting One has blessed you with! you are His joy!!!!

  2. Congratulations on your journey thus far… and thank you for taking us all along with you. I always shudder at the idea of working for “the man” – may we all find a way to feed our souls with our passions, one way or another.

  3. Maria, Thank you for reminding us to feed our souls.

  4. Oh – July 12, 2010…It would have been my dad’s 90th birthday. RIP Dad.

  5. Congrats on your 125th blog! That’s a real journey which has taken you far and wide. Keep it up.

    Love from your friend,

    Linda D.

  6. I think that’s amazing you’ve sold your book in seven different countries!!! pretty soon you’ll have butterflies flitting around the globe! 😀

  7. Dear Maria..
    1. I am totally thrilled by the warm sunlight of my wonderful beloved workshop. It is a wonderful and helpful warm sun come to meet. Finding a deep embrace with love, patience, LOVE, your access to, I do not see in our beloved family of yesterday’s 1.-2.-chakra-Training. I’ve been there in the hope that I can finally access your workshop. With full of love in my heart I say to myself, maybe I do not fit on, or I do not look closely, every time that I can not find this wonderful workshop can access. Or you’re not technically gifted, says my heart. It would be a good idea to consult a technician, a little bit of me, explains the technical background is well. In peace.
    Did you always find some people the perfect access always (I can not even believe I’m such access can not find. It reached by e-mail in Facebook and a handful of other person to visit every Thursday the workshop. It seemed to me really amazing to be that I can not find the workshop to have a space of love for the day in the FB. This may surprise you even as I write, but I usually know I open myself to the love, enough love and dedication and I’m trying to get to be with you. I’m more prone yesterday, and I’ve asked you to help me. To take part with my love with you, and I’m very happy because it just felt wonderful!
    How floating back and forth, really, as I will find that access. Every week there is the possibility to try it again and to find without making you to play with or nervous. My intention is always to make everything with love and patience.

    2. Sent with love again ..
    I’m the girl with green eyes.
    Wonderful and I’m clean, like you, the life I know very well,
    I know I am helping and the true light, should always be on the way?
    |We speak for many months and let us always soul love in our hearts!
    I’m the girl with green eyes, I give thee my faith,
    a fortune in our beautiful family that keeps two people together.
    We see and talk to us every day on the internet until late in the evening.
    We walk the path together, that we are doing so well in the soul, the glory of unity
    and the power of our hearts has made it a thought.
    I’m the girl with green eyes, I give thee my faith,
    at one of our beautiful family fortune, which holds two people together.
    Now, yes now we always have a nice connection, we both know that life
    wonderful, is the soul of happiness is now, you can ask it already,
    It can already tell the thoughts and all the happiness out of life
    and faith, you are the girl with green eyes.
    I love these beautiful words, and it’s so real.

    3. I do not know what I did yesterday, that has brought back some great things to change except that I find a deep embrace with love, patience, LOVE, your access to, I do not see in our beloved family yesterday’s 1.-2.chakra- Training. I am also been prone yesterday, and I’ve asked you to help me.
    But I do not let your soul starve, but every time I give great effort here, my thoughts and feelings to bring one. I’m just not a great writer, but I am a visual typ, who takes everything with short notes, and many impressions exemplifies. But you can give me as for reading and commenting on much of the day is just too short. I read everything from Butterfly Blog. In addition, once again my alone activities come with my family to love with my children. Sometimes is not easy to bring everything under one roof and Hat. As they say fine, the time is not always important, but I am reliable and I always try to-life world in your thoughts.

    4. You allow me in a loving way to tell a brief history. Even as a young girl was always my idea to always live only in the art world and artist or graphic designer to be. Times with my inner spiritual strength, I’ve granted me with hands and feet, against the wishes of my parents come to learn and no regular job. I want to be an artist and I want to create things that do not exist, even if hard to survive.
    As a combination, I also studied graphic design because it was an easier to earn his livelihood. These two components have always worked wonderfully. Only in the graphic design world, I constantly had to find that there is always ordered and subordinate creativity. By the cleaning lady, customer, boss, and work colleagues all wanted to get involved and be creative. Is not conceptually possible. Uuuuffff. You can imagine how great it is when you’re a good creative person, who is given continuously from morning till late evening on instructions on how, where and what I’ve done. An old proverb says: How nice. Too many cooks spoil the broth easily. That was me personally, with too much time. I have always suffered terribly because my creative work and my inner soul always wanted to be untied. Many years of internal process of learning, cry, feel and develop.
    I’m just broken out in a regular employment. And I’ve decided to go into the world of art-creating an artist and I can carry my own thoughts and creations to create, fill me. No one more to the top you have, the constant a constrained, controlled and are under time pressure instructions. That was not my inner vision, as I wanted to work.
    I always wanted to make my creative work with love and self-responsibility and not let me take away that wonderful time of the day imposed by instructions from others. I thought I am a valuable and creative person who does not want to work and live the best days of my life under such standards and measures. My soul loved the early morning to begin a day with my creative thoughts, and up into the night to go in a world of high-creation of creation. Never wanted to come out my soul from this process of creation and they wanted to stay indoors all the time. Simply represent things, and look at my inner soul journey figuratively.
    I am a very dependable and loyal soul that makes any time with you like this soul journey, and also not afraid of it have. Only sometimes I lack the expression of the right words, what I’m saying. The love and pain are always very small at each other, but I’m trying to gain the strength of my love, and the day begins with loving and positive thoughts in me. My soul speaks to you and me every minute, I try everything to you, as far as I can assign it in writing.

    Why do you always write me, I will be myself more. I try as far as I am going to be myself if I did not make it, then I get more of your impressions to me are always better bring more pieces.

    PS: I am sending you a story from my soul of artistic creation. This is a big part of that I am myself, apart from my spiritual soul.
    I think is simply too important to you that once you give me this soul journey using. This is my world you with love, always are with me home. I love everything about it to share with you and you are my precious soul.
    🙂 🙂 I embrace you into our soul.
