SO HOW WAS IT?


Walking along the river's edge near our Inn... soooo peaceful!

Hello Beautiful ButterflyMoms,

How wonderful that you came by to read today’s blog! It is an honor that so many of you come each week even though we’ve had lots and lots of technological bumps along the way, YOU still find a way to come here and feed your soul. VERY COOL! 🙂  BUTTERFLYMOMS = ENERGY FOR YOUR SOUL!!!!

Speaking of ENERGY FOR YOUR SOUL…last weekend was our first ever ButterflyMoms YES! YES! YES! Retreat in Vermont. We had twelve women who attended from five different states. Some could only stay part of the time but they came and took from it what they needed.  DEEP BREATH HERE….Ahhhhhhhhhhh! 🙂 Feels REALLY good to be in alignment with my goals… BE THE FIRE THAT IGNITES PEOPLE’s SOULS! :)!

Strike a pose, there's nothing to it...VOGUE! 😉

SIDENOTE…While I was there I got a call from OWN (the Oprah Winfrey Network)… How very cool is that? I will keep you posted as things unfold. 😉 “Funny” that it happened while I was showing up for my dream….things that make you go hmmmmmm 😉

What a trip it was! MAGNIFICENT!!! The best way you could tell that it affected people was by the look on their faces as they melted into the weekend. You could also tell by their breath. When you looked at them you felt a pull from your heart towards them…at least for me because I love to hug people! 😉 The weekend was about filling up ourselves with nurturing and really seeing and hearing what each of us needed to know. So often we go into automatic pilot and don’t hear ourselves…and then we crash. The ButterflyMoms Vermont retreat was about listening to yourself NOW! We did activities that the kid in all of us love but also that the adult in each of us could accept 😉 We hiked in the magnificent woods nearby. We had amazing home cooked breakfasts (my favorite meal of the day) ;). We did shamanic journeying. We had awesome magazines for our vision boards. We listened. We were seen and heard. We shopped locally at some amazing mom and pop stores who were deeply affected by the floods of Hurricane Irene. We got stunning henna designs painted on us. We meditated. We sat at a bonfire. We bonded with the amazing locals. We made new friends. We dreamed together. We got massages. We gifted each other. We got wonderful surprises. We got butterfly wings. We did tarot card readings. We processed together. We had the privilege of going to a yoga studio location that was created from someone’s innermost dream. It was magical to be in there. I don’t have photos of everything because people were so into it that it was hard to remember to stop and take photos. We did manage a few that I have shared in today’s blog…

The key is that all of these women took time out to carve out time to come. Many have never even heard of me but they trusted a friend or they had been reading the blogs and decided that now is the time. It is about doing things that let you listen to your inner voice. As Oprah says, it first comes in a whisper. You can get really good at hearing the whispers….HOW? Start right now. Start practicing. How are you ever going to get good at it if you don’t START. YOUR divine guidance is NEVER turned off. It is flowing just like the ocean is never turned off. Ask for help when you need it. Listen for the answers. Be wise enough to see a slight change in direction may actually get you there faster. Remember when you were 15 and you thought you knew everything and then you turned 21 and then you really thought you knew everything and then you turned 25 and then you really, really thought you knew everything, and then you turned….we are always learning. That is why we are on the Earth School. We are NOT here to just pay the bills and be little good social robots who do what society deems is correct for us. There is a reason why people love the movie… NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD….go outside a busy street and look at the faces of the people driving to work….they are THE EXACT opposite of those who went to the ButterflyMoms Retreat! That is for sure!

We always say…or at least want-to-be Miss America’s always say they want WORLD PEACE. Some say that WORLD PEACE begins at home. I say WORLD PEACE begins in each of us when we let go of judging others not because it is what we are SUPPOSED to do but because it gives too much of our power away. It plants seeds in the GARDEN OF ICKIES. The only harvest is PAIN. I like to teach people to be mind-full of what gardens they are choosing to plant their seeds….their thoughts…for those create the gardens of their life! :)! May you remember this week to plant your seeds in the THE MOST LUSCIOUS GARDEN YOU CAN FIND!!! :)!

So I have already been asked to do it again so here goes…I’m officially announcing that the next ButterfyMoms Retreat is the weekend of March 23-25 again at the SPECTACULAR Lareau Farm Inn! The price which includes everything for the weekend including wonderful food, workshops, hikes, activities, special surprises, yoga, meditations, shamanic journeying, and lodging is normally priced at $365. We had a special rate of $299 which I will cut down to $275 FOR ONLY THE FIRST FIVE who sign up right now at https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=ZAUKSQWPXYRVS. Offer good this week only so sign up now and invite a friend! You are going to LOVE the ButterflyMoms YES! YES! YES! RETREAT!!! :)! IGNITE YOUR LIFE right NOW! 🙂 I have a super big hug waiting for you! :)!

Great B-I-G hugs,

  1. Looks like a fantastic time. I just know my sister (who lives in NJ) would have loved it… unfortunately she had too much going on for this particular one. Maybe next time. Wish I wasn’t all the way in Oklahoma – I could do with refreshing my soul!

    • Sasha, doesn’t all those wonderful meals you make refresh your soul? and your beautiful Ava? Sometimes refreshment comes in moments, not week-ends! 🙂

  2. Such a lovely time you created for all. It’s priceless to spend time in nature with friends. I myself was in the Berkshires doing the same thing. Out there I smell God!

  3. Congrats on getting a call from OWN! Wishing you the best!

    Warmly,

    Kirin

  4. Love to you, Maria and all!
