I was on an airplane headed home from San Diego this past weekend pondering how to start sharing more about my mediumship with my children. I haven’t kept it a secret by any means but I also have not discussed it at length.
Feeling our feelings and honoring our insights is a big deal in our home and that pleases me and my husband a great deal. When I was pregnant with our first born, I was bent on making sure our children could happily mainstream. My choice was and is to not drench them with too much of even a good thing! They would come to it on their own. And by IT I mean the whole amazing intuitive process.
I have three beautiful, loving, talented, teen-aged-children. When they were little we began playing intuition-building-games together while waiting for our food at restaurants. To onlookers it must have appeared as though we were playing I SPY!
On some level, they all grasp that people don’t disappear when they die and that the soul, meaning spirit, lives on. They grew up with the knowledge that the spirit of grandpa, Colleen and even our dog Baci, all deceased, can feel the love we have for them in our hearts and even visit us through that love.
What I’ve not discussed is that the second I hear someone’s name, whooshes of personal information about him or her zip by me and that I choose to ignore it. (Unless I’m working, it’s not actually my business.) My kids would not be surprised to hear that I can sense how the chef was feeling emotionally speaking as he or she prepared our food.
But what they don’t know is that when we drive through a neighborhood, any neighborhood, I can instantly sense if a house is haunted and often by whom.
What they do know, because I’ve shown them through my actions, is how much I love people and it is through that love that I work. But today, what I want them to realize is that I can feel, with everything I am, the amount of love every single person has have actively within them to share and that the focus of my work is to help them increase it. I do this through reading energy and this includes the energy of those in spirit.
I’m a medium after all.
So back to my conversation with my children. This is what I have so far…It is my own rendition of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem, There was a Little Girl.
There was a little girl who had a little curl right in the middle of her forehead. When she was good, she was very, very good. And when she was sad she was very, very sad. Feeling in extreme is her nature..you see, this curly girl is a medium!
Not everyone with curly hair is a medium & not all mediums have curly hair but they are all feelers in extreme. They feel their emotions in stereo! And they all have an innate capacity to sense the energy of those in spirit.
Mediums you see, are also psychic so can sense, to various degrees what was, what is, and what may be. Both can be highly sensitive and empathic. They feel everything at high volume. But mediums additionally are so sensitive to vibration they are capable of communicating with those in spirit. You know, those most consider “dead”.
As a result of being so sensitive, my boundaries become completely skewed when I’m in a crowd for too long. I become restless, agitated and occasionally grouchy! Knowing where my space begins and where it ends keeps me from feeling everyone’s feelings so I work on that every day.
When we absorb too much of what isn’t ours, the best part of us feels squished out.
My children have witnessed me in overload and they’ve witnessed me climb out of it.
I’ve worked long and hard to build and maintain decent boundaries. I have some free tools & techniques to help you do the same. If you want them sent to you, Click Here!
I live what I love so what I love truly fills my life and my intuition helps me get there. That is what I wish for my children. Whether they align with being sensitive, a psychic, a medium, or just curly or maybe wavy and sweet, I’m good. I’ve done my job. I’ve come further out of my psychic closet and have welcomed them more fully into my world.
Here’s one of my favorite parts!
“I never wanted to interview Livon in order to prove or disprove her abilities as a psychic medium – only to tell her story as an interesting person from Minnesota.
So I’ll say this: Whether you believe in psychic powers or not, Livon’s ability to give accurate details about my life, my personality, and even my dog, was pretty remarkable.” Kaleh Sapp
