Four of my six children... all gifts from the heart! (even when I forget that they are!!!! 😉

Hello Beautiful ButterflyMoms Community!

We are a few weeks away from the “official” three year anniversary of the ButterflyMoms blog. Writing the blog is something I have done no matter what at least EVERY Friday since then…those who know me personally know how rare that is for me to have that kind of commitment. It has been an act of love, humility and magic. It feels wonderful that I touched thousands of people’s lives by just SHOWING UP AS ME…my MBA brain still finds that a little hard to “understand”.

As I write and news of ButterflyMoms has spread, instead of things getting BIGGER, they have actually gotten SMALLER and SLOWER. Savoring each comment that people write, Touching the pain of having lost Sophia physically but finding a way to still connect to her essence and beauty, Hearing feedback of how others have started their own journey because they see the courage I have put into mine, Sharing my Oprah Winfrey Show adventures, Introducing you to amazing people along the way, Schlepping my book sales stories and creating a list of where they have sold, Getting inspired to start the ButterflyMoms Soul Support Group, Putting on magical retreats that fill us with such wonderful abundance and link us with our unique joys!….the joys I have attracted into my life because I have CARVED out SACRED SPACE every Friday has added such depth to my life. It has transformed in my own way of connecting with SOURCE ENERGY (what people call God, Allah, Buddha, etc.)

If you are reading this you are part of the magic space that is ButterflyMoms. Whether it is your first of hundredth time here, it is pretty amazing that out of all the NOISE in the world, you have tuned into this source…one whose intention is to FEED YOUR SOUL. There is no real “advertising” yet thousands of people still find there way here… that is just soooooo MAGNIFICENT! (sigh)

So over the next few weeks as we end the 3 year anniversary and step into the 4th year of ButterflyMoms I am asking for your stories, your ideas, your connections. One of the biggest ways we all leak energy is that people who are touched by something at ButterflyMoms either don’t share it with anyone or they send me a private email. Each week up to 2,000 people read the blog yet few leave any comment. Over the next few weeks I ask that you comment so that you can unleash the trapped energy in your life. Think of it as an exercise for your heart. Remember that each week I open my heart and share what I find inside. For this to happen I have to turn off my brain and let my heart speak. I know there are some VERY POWERFUL stories out there. I have heard some of them yet many others have not. That is a lot of wasted inspiration. Whether yours is powerful to you or not is the mind creeping in again…(Nice try brain! We are on to you! 😉 Take a moment now, don’t filter, don’t wait until later, just sit down and ask yourself and type the answers to… WHAT HAS THE BUTTERFLYMOMS BLOG MEANT TO ME? WHAT MAKES ME KEEP COMING BACK? WHAT HAS BEEN ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL LIFE LESSONS FOR ME? WHAT SHIFTS HAVE A MADE IN MY LIFE?

Great big hugs,

P.S. Please help me support my dream! … It’s been TWENTY YEARS in the making!

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 SOUL SUPPORT GROUP 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 SOUL SUPPORT GROUP on Thursday nights.

*Every Friday Morning, as a way of honoring her daughter Sophia’s soul, Maria gets up at 4:30-5:00am to write the weekly BUTTERFLYMOMS BLOG. Hundreds of people read it every week to feed their souls. Maria started writing the blog in May 2009 and has written EVERY Friday since. Tell your friends…
