Today’s blog is dedicated to my dear friend the beautiful Maria José Chaves who died on Wednesday night. She wanted so badly to live and fought for her life with her heart wide open…She is now an angel among us…actually she was her whole life. 444

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

I have been sitting here for two hours putzing around on Facebook and answering emails because there are so much amazing AHAs coming through for me. I am seeing the gifts more and more that are around me, not as an occasional HAPPENING, but rather as the natural fabric of my life.

The one thing that is coming up for me to write about is not what I feel like sharing with the world because of how vulnerable I feel but isn’t this why you come here to read and why I write… to take life to the next level, to not stay stuck in our little “boxes” the for sooooooo many generations people have lived comfortably? Our society today is not the same as it was even 10 years ago. If you are paying attention you can feel it. Many people are freaking out. THE JOBS! WHERE ARE THE JOBS?!

At the ButterflyMoms workshop last night we talked about how many people are scared of what is happening to the economy. Large corporations are failing. People are losing their jobs. House prices are falling. The stock market is extremely volatile. College tuition is skyrocketing. All these things are making people really freak out because they have a picture in their mind of what life SHOULD look like and the type of life they want to live. They think that because the world is SHIFTING the riches they once dreamed about will be no longer. The life they dreamed of is evaporating for us and our children.

Well then, let’s define what life has been for most of us in that dream scenario… We were taught to always be planning for the future, always striving, always goal-setting. Work hard all your life. Follow the rules. Fill out the forms. Retire. Die. The MEAT of life was usually never most people got to because they spent so much time on the BONES, the structure of their lives. The UGLY FACT is that most people have mindlessly accepted the role of working to pay our bills. Even though most of us live our lives around PAYING OUR BILLS, NOT MANY OF US REALIZE IT. Think about it though. If you did not have to go to work today would you? If you are sleep deprived and wished you could just sleep and take care of your body do you? If you have wanted to take time off from working to do something you love can you?

“Not me Maria! I can kind of see your point but I don’t live that way,” I hope you don’t. I hope you are living your dreams and flowing with your life in perfect harmony of what it feels good to you, no matter what the mob outside your house (or sometimes in your house) is doing! I hope you are using money as a tool and not being used by money. In the best selling book, THE FOUR AGREEMENTS, Miguel Ruiz shares that most of us prostitute ourselves for money. It is just part of being human. CHOOSING what we are willing to prostitute ourselves for and what we are not gives us a better quality of life…(I hope no one  ever takes that quote out of context for me 😉 )

It is about awareness. It is about noticing. It is about choice. What feels good in your life? Do more of that. If you live locally and can come to a ButterflyMoms workshop on Thursday nights at 8pm you can definitely get a better explanation if you need one.

I thank you for showing up in your own life. If you have been attracted to our wonderful ButterflyMoms blog the universe is sending you a message that your soul already knows.

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.

*Every Friday morning, as a way of honoring 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 2009 and has written EVERY Friday since.


√  Just finished our 28th week in a row of ButterflyMoms Workshops!…which means it’s been a whole half a year since my appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show. We did vision boards this week which were a HUGE, HUGE, HUGE hit! For those who were there, it was sooooo obvious that you could feel the energy in the room!!!! It was magical to see the expression on people’s faces when they felt it. What a gift! Come feed your soul…783 Washington St, Holliston. Plenty of FREE & EASY PARKING in back. Only $25, or just $20 if pay through Paypal or drop off a check.

  1. Wonderful words this fine perfect morning ! Thank you for always feeding all of our Souls !! I was out last night in your neck of the woods and ran into 5 people that look forward to reading your words every day ! It is so nice to run into strangers and they bring up your name and speak so good about you…So you know i told them all i knew you for ever ! LOL !!

  2. Love this!! It’s my belief that we are in a major shift and all of this is happening because of a shift into a higher consciouness. There is no need to panic because time has shown that as universal and planetary changes take place everything else shifts with it. The universe is a “mastermind” so to say and if we think we are in control we need to think again. Flow with the changes because they are for the better and higher consciouness of all beings.
    Love you

  3. Merry Everything. I love that and will adopt it. Thank you for sharing and for nourishing our souls.

  4. So sorry for the loss of your friend.


    Linda D.
