DSCN5959Dearest ButterflyMoms,

Every week that you come here to devour the ButterflyMoms blog, you are being drawn into a very sacred and nurturing circle of magnificent energy. Out of all the things you could be doing, a part of you chose to come here to the ButterflyMoms blog. I take that calling to come here very seriously for that “signal” you get in the “firestorm of busy” has to be strong. The more I do my “work” of grounding, letting go, protecting, deepening and expanding my energy, the more your intuition will be called to the ButterflyMoms’ channel.  It is happening on a level that is “invisible” to most of the five sense and  brain, instead it comes more in through the heart, really. If you find yourself being drawn here celebrate because you are definitely on to something! It is the same special something that magically opens morning glories every morning, makes the sun rise and the egg find its perfect sperm.

DSCN6011There is a magical channel here on planet earth. To be truly happy you need to tune into it, but how? Little babies seem to know how to find it but then somewhere along the way early on we override our innate joy ability and learn a different way of living and being. In the process of getting to a “safe” place in our life, we lose that ability to be happy.  Most of what we learned will not get us aligned with that channel. Chasing it won’t get you there. In fact, no matter how much money, intelligence, education or influence you have, there is only one way to access it. The only way is by LIVING IN THE PRESENT. You know that cheesy saying… “The past is history, the future is a mystery and today is a gift,” Well, it’s not today that is a gift, it’s right now….. and now right now…. and now right now…. you get the idea. NOW is the gift. Realize this. Yes, you have read this concept a million times but have you TRULY let it sink in? Want to find out? Do this simple, little test:


WARNING! Now this is where most people fall into a trap…. If someone answers: “Ya, I’m actually feeling pretty ok, right now. My life if fine. I’m actually pretty content.” (ENTER SOUND OF GONG OR ANNOYING BUZZER)

Uhm, excuse me! Are you not an amazing creation working in synchronistic harmony with all the miraculous systems in your body? Need a reminder? Here is a little rundown of just some of the things your body does EVERY DAY see if this helps you snap out of the land of humdrum…

``````human bodyYou have 30,000,000,000 (thirty billion) working sections in your brain.

You have 131,000,000 photoreceptors in your eyes.

You have 24,000 hair-like cells in your inner ear which react to sound and convert it to nerve impulses.

Your small intestine has a surface area of 970,000 square feet.

Your heart beats 100,000 times and pumps 2,000 gallons of blood every day.

Your liver manufactures more than 1,000 different enzymes, each controlling a different chemical reaction.

You have 60,000 miles of blood vessels in your body.

You breathe 438 cubic feet of air each day.

There are 35,000,000 gland cells in your stomach to allow it to break down food without digesting itself.

`````````````human body

Your kidneys have 40 miles of tubing and clean 500 gallons of your blood every day.

Every cell has 1,000,000,000,000 (one million million) bits of data in it. (That is as much information as 10,000 encyclopedia-sized books.)

Your body has 639 muscles that must work together.

Our joints must move 25,000,000 times in our lifetime without wearing out.

There are 30,000,000,000,000 (thirty million million) cells in our body with 10,000 functions.

HOLY SHIT! Did you put any of these things on your to do list? Nope, you didn’t and they still get done! Pretty damn cool!!!!! The answer above can easily be diagnosed as a case of NOTLD Syndrome…(Night Of The Living Dead Syndrome) where people go around existing in their lives like zombies. Unfortunately, it is so wide-spread that people don’t notice it when you have it, they only notice it when you don’t.

Hmmmmm…. Don’t believe me? Try this…Walk up to someone you know, look glum and exhale a lot. When they ask you why you are feeling so down tell them nothing happened, you just woke up that way, just feeling tired and icky. They will most shake their head and empathize, perhaps even share their own feeling tired and icky story. Now walk up to someone all happy and full of energy, beaming from every pore! When they ask you why you are so happy tell them you just woke up really happy. Most likely at some point your good energy will rub them the wrong way and they will get annoyed or talk behind your back to other who also like to share feeling tired and icky stories. This is, in general, the mode society lives in, but this is starting to crumble away. Those who are attracted to the ButterflyMoms blog are the light workers who are shining a path for those who will come after us. We are the antidote to the NOTLD Syndrome! We are doing amazing work, even without realizing it. We cannot help it because it is what we were born to do.

DSCN5851For those who are new to ButterflyMoms and don’t know, I am a Reiki Master Teacher and I am also a full-spectrum healer. So when you read the ButterflyMoms blog or share it with others, know that when I write the blog, I weave a lot of Reiki energy into each and every word. Whoever reads ButterflyMoms gets directly energized by universal Reiki love. (The cool thing about Reiki is that if you don’t want or need it, it goes to where in the world it is most needed. I’ve always loved that fact!) Now I’ve been writing this blog for almost four years and some weeks we get over 1,000 people from all over the world. Imagine with me if each one of those people is receiving Reiki think of how much love I’m calling in and sending out into the world! AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL! FEELS GREAT! FEELS VERY ALIVE!

I can see and feel things starting to energetically shift. I’ve gotten many more coaching inquiries within the last two weeks than ever before. This week I’m also proud to say that we sold 13 of the book Mom Entrepreneur Extraordinaire, which I co-wrote. I am holding my first workshop in Portugal next week. (Details are below.) Also, while introducing myself at an International Women in Portugal meeting a woman named Samantha spontaneously yelled out, “Wait ButterflyMoms!? No way!” Her friend from South Africa had just a few days earlier sent her my ButterflyMoms blog! How very cool is that!?! I love that I’m living my life’s purpose of BEING THE FIRE THAT IGNITES PEOPLE’s SOUL! If I can help you get into your alignment please let me know. I am here to fly!!!!!!

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 Friday Morning, as a way of honoring her daughter Sophia’s soul, Maria writes 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. Maria is a Reiki master and every time you read it you are showered with healing love.

Tell your friends… and spread the love!!! FEED YOUR SOUL!!!!!
