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?

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.

Flirting with the Moon

There’s something cooking in the Cosmos!

I am an energy reader, so when I feel that there’s something going on astrologically speaking I look for astrologers with good energy to help me understand.

For those of us without substantial knowledge of astrology, it can be overwhelming.

The whole mediumship thing was overwhelming to me at first until I learned some basics, starting with boundaries! Steady boundaries gave me the strength to say NO to pushy spirits!

So as I flirt with the idea of getting to know the moon, the stars, Eris, Venus, Mercury, Mars and Neptune, I search for a foundation to lean on.

The first step in this is understanding how I feel as planetary changes occur. When I’m feeling off for no apparent reason, meaning there are no roaming and draining spirits nearby, my family is doing fine and my personal boarders are in place, I head to my computer and the internet for astrological information.

Alex Myles of Elephant Journal wrote, “On March 17th, the sun, the new moon, and the planetoid Chiron will all be huddled together gracing the sky in the sensitive zodiac sign of Pisces.”

Apparently Chiron is a restorative planet which means the potential for healing emotional wounds is good. But the new moon, which is dark and invisible to the unaided eye has an impact as well.

Just think “dark side” and keep an eye on your inner-bully. Choose compassion instead.

Dear Universe

Myles says, “On moon phases, when cosmic energy is highly charged and intense, and we aren’t listening carefully or understanding the teachings hidden within the turbulence, it is quite common for “all hell to break loose” and for emotional, dramatic meltdowns to occur.”

Old emotional stuff is never easy when it comes up and since my mom died in January, I imagine I’m in for a ride. Focusing on the light will help my own light beam, so I’m in!  

Just remember, your soul is wise, and knows the way. The way is filled with the energy of compassion, forgiveness, strength and the power to stand up within it.

Inner strength warmly

Darkness makes it easier to spot light so on March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day, I may be wearing green but I will be focusing on the light.

Act-as-if-everyone-loves

 Surround yourself with people who make a habit of choosing love instead of fear.

When-soul-friends

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

Where the Soul is Guided, there is Always Power

All dressed up Livon kids

I’m experienced at feeling grief, I thought I knew what to expect. I was wrong.

My mom died three weeks ago. I’m in Shloshim, and walking around in an altered state of consciousness. Shloshim (in Judaism) is the initial 30-day mourning period after the death of a close family member.

Mourning processI learned a tremendous life lesson as a result of my relationship with my mom. No other relationship has ever produced such supreme anguish as the one between the young me and my mother. Back then, she often told me I was too much, and that my feelings were too big. She rarely looked my way and never hugged me. At seven- years-old, I overheard her offer me to a friend.

I thought she was kidding. I was wrong.

Bed or roses small

It is because of our difficult relationship that I learned to stand up and be who I am despite the threat of disapproval and withdrawal of affection. I learned to go inward and connect with G-d and a higher part of myself to feel love and to not only accept who I am, but to love who I am not despite, but because of, my ability to feel my giant feelings.

Movement and dance from Nov 2017 blogTo a large degree, this is how I learned to spot the light in everyone even when they themselves could not feel it. This was a gift.

pablo-32

We don’t have to meet people where they are, we just have to love them where they are to find any sort of peace. This is something I learned from being my mother’s child.

Where the soul is GUIDED

Our relationship remained, overall, a strained one. That is up until the last two years.

Almost 24-months ago, my mom seemed to recognize her own mortality and some healing and repair began between us. She no longer skipped me when greeting family members with a kiss on the cheek and she slowed her steady flow of unkind remarks about me, to me.

For the first time in over forty-years, my mom reached out. She started to call me on the phone and wanted to know about my life, my husband, and about my children! I was cautious and happy. 

Me mom and Sophia

My mom and I had dozens of humor-filled, tension-free conversations. My husband and I welcomed her into our home for large family celebrations. I’m glad we did.

On November 7, 2017 my mom was diagnosed with stage-four-lung-cancer. 

She was heroic in the way she handled her diagnosis. She moved through the illness with acceptance, and was not afraid to die. She also became in my experience, a little more willing to talk honestly about her parenting choices.

Our conversations became deeper. Rapid-fire she acknowledged some things long folded up and put away.

And so I became YESI learned so much in the last months about the landscape of my mother’s mind and truly enjoyed connecting with her. The best of her, at least for me was the last of her. 

She died on January on 6th with my brother by her side.

I have never seen anyone approach death with such grace. She embraced the process of dying fearlessly and seemed to sink into every moment. She even maintained her sense of humor. Witnessing such courage was a gift.

Her funeral was on her 80th Birthday. Our party plans changed direction completely. We mourned her death and celebrated her life.

We being all four of her children, our wonderful children and spouses, a grandson- in-law and one tiny, beautiful, great granddaughter. My family is nothing short of amazing.

 

Forgiveness

Thank you most sincerely for every single kind gesture extended to me and mine during this time of mourning.

There is No Expiration Date on Love

There was a time when I was alone

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!

How we love

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!

feel your light 2

Sending LOTS of LOVE YOUR WAY!

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.”

Words and Their POWer!

I-will-honor-all-those OCT YES

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!

The-words-we-speak-and OCTOBER

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!

Here’s How…

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.

October appreciation

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!

October words

 

Thank you for reading my blog. I am a medium by nature and a writer by heart.

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.
