Dearest ButterflyMoms,

After last week’s big surprise announcement that I’m moving to Portugal for a year, there has been a huge response by many of ButterflyMoms blog readers. We got almost 1,000 hits on the ButterflyMoms blog last week. It thrills me to see that because I love proof that my following my heart’s passion reverberates in the lives of others and helps them ACTIVATE their passions. Each moment of every day we get to choose to live in…


or in



Pretty drinks can help you escape your life. Next time you are at a restaurant see how they advertise them… they totally know people use them to ESCAPE THEIR LIVES and they advertise to enhance that feeling.

We all have to do the ORDINARY, like pay the bills, feed our kids, do the laundry, fill out the forms. Those simple acts never stop and their constant stream can mesmerize us and take hold of our entire lives until fighting with those items is all there is. Many of us fall into this zombie-like existence where we are just going through the motions. Every once in a while we get clarity but maybe the pain of where we are or not doing what to do is too big so we mask what we feel by…

_ Reaching for a “few” glasses of wine

_ Devouring chocolate or something sweet

_ Self-medicating with drugs (both legal and not)

_ Going shopping

_ Having an affair

_ Eating until you feel better

_ Watching TV for hours at night

Look for all the wonderful places abundance will unexpectedly come! 🙂

All these things can NUMB our lives. They are so common that it seems normal when you do it. Hey, listen! You are a soul that has the spectacular gift of being in a body. ENJOY THE EXPERIENCES that you cannot enjoy without a body! SAVOR life through your five senses! FEEL HOW WONDERFUL IT ALL IS! FEELING GOOD IS WONDERFUL! What we need to watch out for is when we HIDE behind these things to mask what we don’t want to face. Energetically, when you do that, you are literally BLOCKING YOUR FLOW. As those of you who have a house with a septic system know, when things get blocked, the shit comes up all over the place. It is a natural law. Be conscious of what laws you are ACTIVATING in your life today.

Remember that to live in the EXTRAORDINARY takes little baby steps, not the GIGANTIC STEPS we all fear. When you are living the last few moments of your life you will never say, “Oh I wish I had lived a less passionate life.” Think of the end of your life and FEEL how good it will feel to have lived, even part of your life in the EXTRAORDINARY! Now go out and create a baby step of your EXTRAORDINARY LIFE!!…. :)!

Gentle reminder there are only five ButterflyMoms Soul Support Group get-togethers left (on Thursday nights) … I know a lot of you have thought about coming and now is the time to come connect. I hope you take this opportunity of an ending to create a new beginning for yourself. Last night we had a new person and it was an awesome win-win for everyone there! It just feels good to find a safe place to let go of your ickies and be supported by an incredible community! 🙂

Great big hugs,



Take a moment and FEEL YOUR LIFE for a moment. Let the ICKIES fall away. Embrace the love. Forgive yourself for not living the perfect life your mind has tricked you into thinking you should be living. 🙂 Just be. That is all that is needed for happiness. 🙂

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. There was only supposed to be one workshop but people kept asking to be able to come the next week and the next week and the next week until a whole year has gone by!!!!Any questions call my cell at 617.877.3616.

*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…


√  Next BUTTERFLYMOMS SOUL SUPPORT GROUP is Thursday, July 12th at 8pm. Only five groups left!
