Death is an Emerging into the Light

Auntie Ide and Jodi

Arranged Marriage

David Berman and Sarah Katznelenborgan had an arranged marriage. Unbeknownst to Sarah, David was several decades her senior. Together they would be blessed with five children; Bill, Louie, Max, Faye (my grandmother), and Ide. When Ide was born, David was in his seventies. Longevity seems to run in the family as my Aunt Ide died last Saturday at the age of 102 1/2.

Ide was a true pioneer. As my cousin Sandy so eloquently has said, “Ide, back in the late 1930’s and throughout the 1940’s 50’s and 60’s was what women are today!” She worked full-time and was an unusually independent thinker.

young ide

For a woman who never was a mom, she sure had a lot of children. We are her nieces and nephews and we are four generations deep. Auntie Ide sipped wine and danced with us at family simchas (celebrations). She actually could out-dress and out-dance us all! She was famous for her chopped liver and her rum cake. She used real rum..and a lot of it!

Ide was the last remaining physical link we had to Bill, Louie, Max, & Faye. She was our family jewel and we all had our own special connection with her. During her last weeks, we sat by her side & held her hand as she struggled to breathe. She was always a fighter and death now was her adversary.

A week before she died, I remember walking into her condo and sensing the presence of a full crowd of relatives-in-spirit. I had very recently been in conversation with my dad, who died years before, so I recognized his energy immediately. My beautiful Grandma Faye, and her brothers were also amongst the throng of deceased loved ones trying to coax Ide over to the other side. I sensed they were telling her about the people, her people joyously gathering, waiting for her to emerge into the light.

Later that night, though she hadn’t uttered a word all day, she became alert and said she needed to go shopping for a dress! Hours later she whispered..”How can they eat spaghetti in the dark?” I looked up in the direction she was pointing and saw a fuzzy scene of large oval-shaped tables covered in a lovely black tablecloth. Sitting elegantly in the center of each was a  gorgeous tall-silver-candelabra with pretty, unlit candles. Her party was right up her alley, fancy!

Fingerprint of the soul

The term labor of love truly took on new meaning in the weeks preceding my aunt’s death. As a medium, I’m trained in differentiating energy. Not only am I able to sense when someone from the other side visits, I can frequently distinguish who it is. Since I knew, or rather know so many of Ide’s relatives in-spirit I began to grasp, from a more personal perspective, how much work it can take to help a dying person relax into death.

We, her nieces, nephews and caregivers were doing our part on this end while those on the other side were doing theirs.

I often sat close to my aunt and whispered things in her ear about ‘heaven’ and promised she would never be alone, she was not imagining things..Her parents were in the room, along with my father, her brothers and sisters and more. She gestured with her hands, pointed in the air and nodded.

Every hour she visibly slipped further and further away from us. I felt like she was somehow visiting the other side in snippets and then falling back into her frail, thin body where she could hear us but no longer respond.

Dying is a process as is birth. For some it goes quickly and for others it goes on and on. Our job on this end is to love our friend or relative, and respect their process.

 

Marshall & Ide

As Ide moved deeper into the tunnel, memories of her standing in her bright yellow kitchen, watching me dance to the music of one of my records playing on her ancient stereo system slowly swooshed by.

My 15th year was horrendous. While most kids that age struggled to find the perfect hair-style, and themselves, I was searching for a place to live. My parents had just split up and my dad had rented an apartment here in town but traveled all week for work. He agreed to take me in when my mother divorced me too. Ide and her husband Sam lived down the hall from my dad so I spent a lot of time with them. Lost in grief, I had forgotten who I was and certainly who I would be. But my aunt had hope for me and she beamed it into me in every way she knew how.

pablo-246

It was that lost girl who sat weeping by my Aunt’s bed. The combination of so much time spent in her condo and the metaphysical heat of the moment brought me back. Though all of me is grieving the loss of Ide, it is the 15-year-old me who weeps. She was more than an aunt to me. She played mother when my own stepped out.

Life circles around love

I trusted my gut even back then and it lead me here. Here.. to my warm and welcoming home with my sweet husband and three beautiful children.. and of course, my little white dog.

Here where we celebrate the life of one stunning, strong, funny, amazing woman who took her last breath and flew into the dazzling light.

7 Signs that your 6th SENSE is WORKING!

That knowing feeling

Any of these signs pertain to you? 

1. You feel your feelings deeply and respond to them at full speed. Sensitive people ARE psychic people and love big, feel big and react big.

2. You have an inner-compass and an inner-radar that alerts you when someone near is in pain, in love, or lying. 

3. Coincidence is your middle name.  Insightful people repeatedly find themselves experiencing coincidences and synchronicity in their every day lives.

4. You spontaneously experience animated and detailed pictures in your head about future events. These are Precognitive Hit-and-runs! 

5. When you are in a pickle, and there appears to be no way out, you become quiet and search for an answer from within. In other words, you wait for your ‘gut reaction’ to kick in.

6. You often experience innocent-insights and drop-in-insights. These are insights that drop in unexpectedly. They appear as clear flashing thoughts or impromptu waking visions. They are spontaneous and lack a feeling of malevolence and tend to catch everyone by surprise. Children are famous for them!

7. You are aware of the wisdom of your knowing feelings and are perceptive about people..discerning even. You notice compelling subtleties and you like most everyone but now and then, there are some you immediately feel leery of. This knowing feeling is most often correct.

 Feeling good and doing good

If even one of these signs is familiar to you, your intuition is growing. Everyone is intuitive but not everyone knows it. When you know it, you appreciate, so it flourishes. Keep noticing your hunches! This is how we learn the language of our own intuition. 

If you are a super-sensitive, intuitive person you are likely spirited as well. And speaking of spirits, that sensitivity will help you connect to those on the other side, you know, in-spirit!  Keep feeling your feelings, be gentle with your response to them and most of all, keep LOVING BIG! 

 Greater Good

Mirror Mirror

Once upon a time….you were born.

But before you were born, you and a really cool dude put together a plan for your life. Or rather, a few highlights of your upcoming life..AKA incarnation.

You planned some of the main features of your forthcoming incarnation such as your gender, who your parents and siblings would be, your place of birth and some other pertinent stuff. But so much was left for you to determine later in your life.

Every choice you made was one that would help grow your soul. As in make you more whole, some would say holy and help you love bigger, forgive more, and find your happy..and live there.

The dude or dudette, by the way, was and is really your guide and hangs out with you even now.

Each of us has one senior guide who has been with us throughout many lifetimes. Guides are multifaceted. They stand beside us in all that we do, giving us the space to learn and earn a higher place of consciousness. A guide’s core job is to alight our paths.

Now..back to the story.

It is the story of your soul. Everything that happens around you, to you, within you is meant to help you grow your soul. Nothing is a punishment. You are a beloved child of the Universe.

Light of Lights here to shine

 

We are here to love and be loved. As I wrote in the first of my Happy Medium series..The Happy Medium: Awakening to Your Natural Intuition,The goal of the soul is to work toward enlightenment.”

Mirror refection

The amount of love you feel toward someone or something is a reflection of the larger part of you. The larger part of you is your soul-self. When you hate someone it is a reflection of the smaller part of you, which is the part you wish to heal.

And every single response you have, meaning reaction, or feeling is a reflection of something that is going on within you. As Carl Jung said, “Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” He also said, “Whatever is rejected from the self, appears in the world as an event.”

My loves and my hates

What does this mean for us all? The seed of everything that irritates us lives within and we are more than capable of dissolving and therefore eliminating it.

Here’s how.

Sit back and observe what bugs you.

Does it bother you when people are late? This means you feel you are respectable and “right” when you are on time and is why you dislike being late.

Now let’s take it a step deeper.

When those around you make mistakes, big or small, do you find yourself silently criticizing them? This is due to the fact that you believe your value is in performing perfectly. I assure you, it is not. You are of value no matter what you do or say. You are loved beyond measure.

Do you feel agitated when people don’t respect you? Their seeming disrespect is mirroring your own lack of self-respect. What exactly do you feel you are not being respected for? That specific thing needs your love and attention..and reverence. Once you begin this process, you will feel more whole and less disturbed by the reaction of others.

Reactions

Our reaction to absolutely everything is a mirror refection of something within ourselves. So the next time you feel hurt, annoyed, enraged or exasperated look a little deeper within. Once you see the mirror, a spark of insight and light will appear.

Strengthen your Intuitive Skills by putting them to Work for You!

pablo-62

Feel inspired to take a chance and wonder if you should? Hesitant about the big decision you just made and could use some divine support? Keep seeing double numbers on the clock and have a feeling it symbolizes something?

Numbers, symbols, and signs can inspire and support you!

Start noticing coincidences, serendipitous events, and calming dreams.

Pay attention to how you feel and signs from the Universe and your guides will begin to become clearer and clearer.

Numbers, symbols, and signs are in our lives for a reason—they are one example of how our guides and loved ones communicate with us through the language of intuition. They help illuminate the messages our higher soul-selves crave.

pablo-83

For example…You and your spouse have been heavy into conversation about having children and you are not sure the timing is right..But for the past ten days, every time you walk into say a coffee store, barbershop, drugstore or computer store, the first people you notice are those with young children. You begin to grin, your heart beats a little faster and you feel like butterflies are dancing in your stomach.

Yes, this is a sign.

pablo-61

Notice how you initially feel when the sign appears. The meaning will likely bring you to a place of power, not depression. The voice of our intuition is soothing and discerning, never critical or blaming.

Decide that every sign represents something affirmative and be open and positive.

My new book, The Happy Medium: Speaking the Language of Intuition is filled with intuition popping techniques that will help you learn to trust your gut and to start to recognize the meaning behind the numbers and symbols and signs that materialize in your life every day.

Your Intuition will lead you in the Direction of what makes you Happiest

Woo Woo Simon Says!

Most of you have played a childhood game called Simon Says, right? According to Wikipedia, the game “Simon Says (or Simple Simon Says) is a child’s game for 3 or more players where 1 player takes the role of “Simon” and issues instructions (usually physical actions such as “jump in the air” or “stick out your tongue”) to the other players, which should only be followed if prefaced with the phrase “Simon says”.

Well, I thought it would be fun to play a little game called Woo-Woo Simon Says!  Woo-Woo meaning metaphysical, spiritual, or intuitively inclined.

your-intuitive-voice-3

This is a game for people of all ages and can be played from one player up! Here’s how it works. Your intuition issues instructions (usually these directions point you toward your happiness). They should only be followed when it feels right within your heart, your gut and your head.

Following an intuitive lead is truly simple, you just have to open up to how you feel. The language of intuition involves a kind of code—an intuitive code. Its signals are communicated through emotions and physical sensations. Deciphering what these sensations mean is the key to understanding the language of your intuition. Since sensations are really feelings, and emotions are the story you tell yourself about what your feelings mean, learning the language of intuition comes down to one single factor: feelings.

Everyone, and I do mean everyone, communicates through intuition. And that is how those on the other side of the veil communicate with us, as well. So playing this little game can certainly serve to heighten your intuition and strengthen your chances of sensing when a loved one in spirit pays you a visit.

To start playing Woo-Woo Simon Says begin paying attention to how you feel and move in the direction of what makes you happy.

when-you-make-a-habit-2

When making decisions such as to what to eat for breakfast, which road to take to work, or what client to call first for example, employ your intuition. Simply head in the direction you feel compelled to go.

Ask yourself, do you feel calm and peaceful when you consider your favored choice? If so, you are making a decision based on intuition. Do you feel irritable and prickly?  If so, you are not.

Your intuition will lead you in the direction of what makes you happiest. And when you are happy, you make wise choices, good things come your way and serendipitous events start to occur more often.

So instead of listening to the voice of Simon as in Simon Says..listen to your own inner voice! You know you have won the game when you feel peaceful and in the flow.
