I got into a fight with…………. Mercury Retrograde!

Despite my best efforts, I got into a fight with Mercury Retrograde!

It was early last week…

I had been minding my own business, coaching some fabulous clients, (they are all pretty fabulous BTW) meditating, surveying my own boundaries when out of the blue, I felt like crying. As a medium and highly empathic person, I recognize when I’m sensing and/or taking on someone’s feelings. I tightened my boundaries and again felt a waive of such sadness I wanted to cry. This was mine and it was weird. 

I felt saturated by heartache and feelings of overwhelm. They seemed to come out of thin air. Days before things in my life were flowing along with ease. 

But then I recalled…

Mercury went Retrograde October 31st and will stay there until November 20th.

Mad…I was really mad at Mercury for this awful retrograde. I had done so much to ground myself in preparation! The little shit planet, I thought to myself, really packs a punch when in retrograde! Something inside of me wanted to punch back. 

So I sat with my tears and listened to what they had to say. No judging, just listening and sort of swaying back and forth. And just like that my knowing-soul-self started to send symbols my way. You know, that calm, comforting, higher-knowing-soul-self we all have…I sparked it with some self-care

Soul Care

The symbols and pictures were all of me loving up my family including those who were in spirit, walking my dog, checking on relatives and friends who were in need of a boost and of course, of me at work. Not one was of me taking care of me. 

I found some lavender and salt, tossed them into the tub and took a warm bath in the middle of the day. Afterward I silently sat in front of a fire and listened to myself breathe.

Following what seemed like a few minutes but was really over an hour I did tons of Sun Salutations (yoga) drank a giant glass of cool, clean water and contentedly glanced around the room. 

Root and Flight YES

I  looked at the view from my back windows, and the pillows on my living room sofa and began feeling such deep appreciation for everything in my life… I wanted to cry…but this time in a good way.

Next I got rid of some shoes that no longer worked for me, emptied my fridge of anything that looked like a science project, cleared out some old files on my computer, left messages for a few sweet friends I had not connected with lately and made a healthy dinner for me and mine. 

Mercury-Retrograde

Who are you Mercury?

Mercury is the smallest planet in our solar system and is all about Language—both  verbal AND written. Transporting of messages and just simply transporting is this planets sphere. Let us not forget electronic communication such as cell phones, computers etc.. they are shall we say, touched by Mercury Retrograde. 

It’s about COMMUNICATION! And while Mercury is in Retrograde, all things communication can tend to go WONKY!

Also, at this time the veil between worlds thins. A space between the material/physical and the mysterious opens up. My yearning for connection with loved ones in spirit was prompted by this thinning. 

Part of what had set me off was me missing my dad, aunt and grandparents. I know I find their love within me when I am loving; so this retrograde gave me a tremendous gift because it reminded me of that.

Can you relate to my experience? 

Insights at times like these come in louder and stronger and moods run hotter so the best thing to do during Mercury Retrograde is DO WHATEVER CALMS and SOOTHES.

do whatever calms and soothes

Mercury Retrogrades, I shall say again, can make us feel a little wonky. It’s okay though, because it’s a great time to un-stuff our stuff and sublimely grow our intuition.

Here are some potent ways to advance your intuition!

Un-stuff your stuff!

Boundaries in a Bottle!

 

Let it go and let it grow YES

Autumn, full moons, Aries, Uranus, Pluto & Jupiter! Shadow work, boundary work, inner work. There’s a lot going on in the cosmos and there’s a lot going on within You!

When you have tons of fun or not-so-fun-stuff going on, who do you call? I love and trust my husband and dear friends but when it comes to feeling over-stuffed I call my best friend.

My best friend is my intuition.

My intuition told me to breathe myself into my higher-knowing-soul-self and so I did!

Be inspired

Here’s how!

I was lead to do some inner-eye housecleaning…Meaning to clean up and tighten up my boundaries.

This is always a good idea…it strengthens intuitive signals and makes the language of my intuition sing.

Breathe!

Stand or sit with spine straight and legs and arms uncrossed. Gently close your eyes and listen to the sound of your breath as you slowly inhale and exhale nine times through your nose. Feel the rise of your belly as you take in another breath and relax into yourself as you exhale. As you inhale a ninth time envision a golden-white light moving up from the core of the earth through your feet and out from the top of your head. The golden-white light then encircles your body three times and floats back down to the core of the earth.

One of my favorite boundary fixes is Boundaries in a Bottle from my second book, The Happy Medium: Speaking the Language of Intuition

Boundaries in a Bottle

Who—Anyone who could use a quick boundary fix

What—Expeditiously clear the energy in and around you

When—When you wish to clear your mind or you feel like your boundaries are askew

Where—Any private or semi-private space

Next…

*Fill a small clean glass spray bottle with purified water. Add several drops of sage essential oil or salt (either sea salt or kosher salt).

*Imagine that you are surrounded by a white light.

*Stand in the middle of the room and spray the air above your head three times.

*Close your eyes and touch the tip of your middle finger to the top of your thumb. This is known as the Akash mudra, which helps activate positive thought and strengthens the intuitive voice. Keep your other fingers straight but relaxed.

*Say, “The brilliant light of my soul shines and I feel imbued with confidence, peace, and courage. I am filled with appreciation and am radiant with white light.”

You have now bounced yourself back into your intuitive-happy self! In my experience, using this grounding techniques is a beautiful way to start your day—or clear your energy and protect your body, mind, and spirit. Once you learn how to ground yourself the good will freely flow through you and anything else will fall away!

Just Breathe and Believe!

Every single one of us is worthy of the good stuff. We just have to believe in ourselves. Every day is a new day and chance to stand in our own energy and know our individual merit. 

img_9830

Consider this… We are giant magnets! Every thought we think, every word we say, and every feeling we have is projected out and magnetized back. Magnetize the good stuff by beginning your day in the light.

Try this in the morning! 

Feel like exercising that sixth-sense of yours this morning? You know what I’m referring to, your intuition! The perceptive, gut-aware, person that you are is ready to allow more of the good stuff in.  

Start the day by filling yourself with appreciation and you will light up every room.  That light will boost your intuition and help you magnetize that which you most desire.

image-1 (18)

In the length of time it takes to brush your teeth, (two minutes) you can infuse yourself with light. So as you brush your teeth each morning, think in terms of admiration, appreciation, gratitude, endearment, affection and light.

That two minutes sets the stage for your entire day. Isn’t your day worth it?

As you rinse your toothbrush, find and feel a memory of something memory- worthy. As you add toothpaste allow the recollection to flood your senses. As you brush your teeth admire, appreciate and love up the feeling of feeling good

Alternatively sink into one of these to start your day off in the light!

Getting into the Holiday “Spirit”!

Adventure called life

The Holiday season is upon us. Yours may be loaded with family and friends, travel and gifts, food and love. Be sure to fill yourself up with the warmth of each moment and appreciate the feeling. It will bring more of the same.

divinely kissed

There are those for whom the holiday season is filled with memories of times and people gone from sight. For some, celebratory invitations may be a thing of the past. Please consider extending a smile, handshake, hug or even an invite to neighbors, distant relatives or friends.Cin

That-tickle-on-your-nose

We are influenced by our neighbor’s joys and sorrows because we are linked soul to soul. In the same way that we are all psychic, we are all empathic, meaning we are all able to feel the emotions of others.  So all the more reason to love our neighbors while exercising good personal boundaries.

Raquel Sophia and me

We live in captivating and transformative times. There’s what feels like an electric current running through us because so much is happening globally. On a soul level, we have outgrown old limited beliefs and are ready for a healthy shift.

An enlightened approach would be to cultivate balance both during the holiday season and these transformative times.

Set the stage. Breathe yourself into your higher-knowing-self.

MoonShine

To be enlightened

Have you been feeling an excitement in the air? Like you know something good is coming, you feel both elation and slightly on edge? When this happens I run through my trusty Space check list.
The questions on my checklist include: How do I feel and why? Is something feeling unresolved? How are my boundaries, am I tired, hungry or thirsty, is there a spirit trying to reach me?  If I’m all clear on the Space check list my mood shift is likely due to something cooking in the cosmos.
Where there are astrological shifts, there are emotional and spiritual shifts as well! So whether or not you’re interested in Astrology, the moon, the stars and the sun impacts your life.
Why not harvest some of that astrological energy?
aa
There’s been a lot of talk recently about Uranus. Uranus is rather famous, thanks to astronomer Sir William Herschel who discovered the planet in March of 1781, on the 13th day, with the aid of a telescope! This was a big first so I thought it worth the mention.
In the past days, Uranus began its journey through Taurus, the sign of steadfastness and stability. The last time this occurred was in 1934! The seventh planet from the sun, Uranus is cold and windy and one of truth, emancipation, liberation and change.
It seems to me that this is an indication of an upcoming well-deserved modification!
Compare this time to a brilliant painting. A painting you created one adept brush stroke at a time. It’s nearly ready for display. The paint is drying and the remarkable, earthy colors are vibrant, your artistry electrifying.
You are now making space, one truth at a time, for your creation.
Breathe yourself back into wholeness. Listen to the sound of your breath then inhale your dreams and exhale them into your life. Think about what you wish for, play it out in your mind and absorb the good feelings around it.
Remember, your soul is wise and placed you here, right here for a reason.
Since the goal of the soul is to seek enlightenment, and change brings with it growth and therefore the offer of enlightenment, we need not fear what’s happening.

we fear nothing

It’s a good time to allow the quiet and often still voice inside of you to get some air.

be you

We are all connected energy.

people see with their spirit yes

 The Universe has your back.

divine work of art

So DANCE!

So dance May 2018

Remember to Breathe

the beauty around and within me YES

Now show the world your SHINE!

Trust in your Higher Self. You’ve got this!

Kids..I’m a Medium

Cole blogAaron blog01080046

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!

pablo-162

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.

That-tickle-on-your-nose is me

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.

extra ordinary grace

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.

If-you-feel-like-you

 

Go MN News wrote an article about me and my work as a medium. Here’s the Link!

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.”

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.

pablo-244

 

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.
