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!

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.

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.

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!

Cheerleaders with spirit, IN spirit!

delight-in-your-own-sparkle

It is December, a month that is for so many, loaded with emotion. We are making memories or we could be lost in them. And of course, there are those who have found a way to do both.

Be that person.

It’s a wonderful time to trust your gut, not your guilt. What this means is, it’s a good time to make decisions that feel good to you now and will feel good later.

Additionally, instead of saying not so nice things to yourself throughout the day, repeat this!

I believe in the power of self-acceptance. I am confident, strong, brave, and beautiful.

Replace the word “beautiful” with “handsome” as needed.

Everything that sparkles, sparkles for us all. It doesn’t matter if you are lost in a sea of siblings during the holidays or alone with your dog; you are a loved child of the Universe and you deserve to feel your shine.

And remember…

The people we love who have crossed over are standing on the sidelines cheering us on. They are watching us not from afar but up close!

They are not standing on the sidelines feeling sad because they crossed over. Difficult as this may be to conceptualize they’re not wishing to be with us because they ARE with us.

They’re cheering us on saying; you can do this I know you can! I’m here! And.. You’ve got this!

When I was in elementary school, the favored game of my classmates was trench. It’s comparable to dodgeball. If the ball hit you, you were out. You then moved to stand behind the line, knowing at some point you would go back in. But in the mean time, you cheered your teammates on!

Remember, your teammates or rather your family and friends who have transitioned to the other side, are cheering you on and wishing you great love. And that includes love of self!

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, not your guilt and to start to recognize the meaning behind the numbers and symbols and signs that show up in your life.

Happy, Merry EVERYTHING to YOU!

It’s Happening!

your-intuitive-voice-3

I do believe that dreams come true and that we are absolutely the ones who make them happen. Do you? Do you think our intuition can help us get there? I do. So much so in fact that I wrote a book about it. And the book is one of my dreams come true!

It’s happening, it’s almost here! The Happy Medium: Speaking the Language of Intuition is so close to being in my hands..and yours!

That is if you want some help learning to drive your vibe UP so you can live in a place of abundance, acceptance and soul.

Start paying attention to your mood. No judging, just observing. It’s a great start to learning the language of your own intuition!

Bring yourself back to center when you notice you are leaning far, as in really far in one direction or the other. It’s about finding balance…and living there.
