It’s Holiday time! This is a time for people to gather and dine, laugh and simply be together. But there are so many who, for reasons untold, do not have anyone to be with.
So please share your gift of light with everyone you see. Smile at strangers, give compliments wildly, and include friends and family who are outside of your typical invite list. And remember to fill yourself up with appreciation!
Love has no expiration date. Even when someone has moved on, as in crossed over or you have split up with a friend or lover, the sweet energy that once connected you still lives on.
Love never dies. This does not mean it’s healthy to live in the past, it means we allow the love to be a part of us as we move forward because it adds to our shine!
Sending LOTS of LOVE YOUR WAY!

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.
Did you know that simply feeling joy causes it to radiate throughout the Universe and therefore expands its power? Joy also heightens our potential to connect with those we love wherever they are, even with those we have never met.
It’s October 4th, 2017, just days after the tragic happenings in Las Vegas on the 1st.
If you sent even one single positive thought to the people of Las Vegas, they felt it.
Like you, I’ve sent love and light to all those touched by the tragic loss of lives. And like you, I’ve spoken out in some way.
There is great power in words.
“Once you have read a book you care about, some part of it is always with you.” – Louis L’Amour
I wonder how many of us are aware of the energy behind our words and the power in them?
“A word can change a mind, a sentence can change a life..”~ Tom Kane
Do the words you write give you a lift or bring you down?
The words we speak (and write) and the thoughts we think, control our vibration. Our vibration is a magnet and everything that comes to us is steel. It’s the Universal Law of Attraction in action!
My father always said, “Think before you talk.” He was likely trying to teach us respect. Unbeknownst to him, he was helping his children control the giant magnet within us all, our vibe!
A superb magnifier of vibration is..you guessed it..Social Media! So why not have some fun with it… Amplify your sweetest intentions!
Before you post, remember..whatever you put out..will come back so consciously SET YOUR ENERGY!
When posting..before you press enter, let your intuition be your mentor. Check your Vibe! If you feel happy…Awesome, this is a fabulous time to post. If not..try this!
Take a deep breath and slowly and fully release it. Bring to mind someone or something that brings you joy. Bask in appreciation and allow the warmth of your thoughts to fill you up.
Since your vibration is a magnet and everything that comes to you is steel, ask yourself, What will the words in this post magnetize my way? If you like the answer and the feeling it evokes..Post!
Thank you for reading my blog. I am a medium by nature and a writer by heart.
I love TWITTER & follow wonderful tweeters! Here are two who post the most amazing tweets about writing! They are Anna@agiblin95 and @noveliciouss!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.”
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.
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.
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.
One of the greatest gifts of age, is perspective. Exercise yours and focus on what you love. Right now it’s especially important to remember that what we see, say, and think is what we get. No need to keep your head in the sand, be aware of what’s going on but set your focus on what you love.
