From The ‘Woo Woo’ To The Corporate, From Mainstream To Those Who Swim Only Upstream, Intuition Is For Everyone!

This post was originally published a few years back when I wrote for Savvy Magazine. I decided to re-post because I love answering intuition-related questions. In the next weeks I plan on answering a few of yours on this blog!

Curls and pearls Jodi

It’s…EVERYTHING YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT THE INTUITIVE PROCESS BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK!

I will be choosing questions that everyone can relate to such as:

-Since my father died, my refrigerator light goes off on the anniversary of his death. Is this a sign from him or some freak coincidence?”

-How can I know the difference between my intuition and my ego?

-Ever since my older brother died two years ago, when I first meet people, I start to get all kinds of information about them. It is not like I’m looking, I don’t want to know this stuff. Can I stop it?

Here is how to ask your question!

-Follow my blog.

-Click on this link and send a short question that everyone can relate to. Please keep in mind that this is not a venue for a reading…It IS a great one for Q&A!

-We (my amazing staff & I) will chose one or two questions and I will answer them in my next new blog post.

-If all goes well, I’ll answer questions at least once a month on this blog.

-Unanswered questions will be released to the Universe.

-And just so you know, the answer to the first example question above is …The light going off in the fridge is a loving sign from your father in-spirit!  Keep reading for answers to the other example questions!

-And also just so you know, you are a divinely loved child of the Universe and are connected to the Light of Lights. So feel free to SHINE!

INTUITION IS FOR EVERYONE!

(This was originally posted some time ago)

For the past several months, I’ve been writing a Q&A column about the intuitive process for Savvy Magazine (http://savvy.mn/author/jlivon/). We have had some wild and inquisitive inquiries and we love them all! Questions have come in about ghosts, how to deal with intuitive kids, dying parents, and co-workers with negative energy. Additionally, we have also had some heartfelt questions about instincts and tragedy as well as how intuition can help those who compete in athletics.

From the ‘woo woo’ to the corporate, from mainstream to those who swim only upstream, Intuition is for everyone!

Are you a seeker? Are you sensitive to life’s nuances? Have you found that when you are in the rhythm and flow of life, receptive to and in line with all of your senses, everything flows more naturally? And of course, when you feel unaligned, do the small bumps you classically avoid become boulders? Do you wish to learn how to consciously navigate your way back into a better space? You intuition can be an enormous help! If you wish to learn more, there are a number of great avenues to take! For instance, you can read about it and watch intuition-friendly shows such as Twin Cities Live!  And of course there are amazing events  designed to help boost your intuitive knowledge! Google your greatest desire and be open to the light!

HERE IS MY OCTOBER SAVVY COLUMN, CHECK IT OUT!

Jodi Livon, author of The Happy Medium, intuitive coach and resident psychic at Twin Cities Live, says everyone is intuitive.

Each month readers ask Livon about their questions around intuition and all things supernatural. In this month’s edition, readers ask about discerning intuition from ego, intuitive boundaries and dealing with negative people.

How can I know the difference between my intuition and my ego?

Great question. Our Intuition speaks to us through a still quiet voice from within. It’s that inner knowing, that internal nudge that leads us to the right place at the right time. Our intuitive voice is calm and never puts us down or seems angry. On the other hand, our ego acts out of fear and often encourages us to assume and act out of selfishness. When we do so, our egos inflate while our intellect and spirit are diminished. As a result, our intuition naturally shuts down. If we center ourselves we can return to a blissful neutral, and reopen our heart and mind. The flow of psychic data is now liberated and able to reach the conscious mind at a more rapid speed. To do this work justice, we must stay tuned to the higher self and give the ego, which can act as a loaded gun, time off.

Ever since my older brother died two years ago, when I first meet people, I start to get all kinds of information about them. It is not like I’m looking, I don’t want to know this stuff. Can I stop it?

You can keep the flow of information from feeling as though it is bombarding you but it takes some real work. The grief you experienced over the loss of your brother opened you up intuitively; this is not at all uncommon. There are practices that can help you heal and become better at controlling when and how information presents itself so you will no longer feel so flooded. The most effective is through physical exercise. This will help you feel connected to the earth and gain a strong presence of being. As a result, your personal borders (aka boundaries) are strengthened. Another practice is to simply, firmly, and politely say, no when information begins to roll in. It works. Turn your attention to a picture in your mind that brings you peace and re-ground yourself.

I work with someone who has nothing nice to say to or about anyone. He sits near me and I have a terrible time feeling productive because his complaining tires me out. Is there something I can do to block his bad mood?

Our thoughts offer a platform from which to view our world. When we are in a dark mood, darkness finds us. It sounds like your co-worker is caught in it, and there is much you can do to block it. First, exercise compassion for him; he clearly is in pain. Next, turn up your personal level of positive energy. There is always something upbeat to think and say. Look around your space and acknowledge seven things that you are grateful for. Silently say something appreciative about them. When you do so, the mood-altering effects are astounding. Everything flows with extra ease when positive energy is infused in it. Maintaining affirmative thoughts can shift dark energy to light.

Thank you for reading my blog and don’t forget to follow it!

Seeking Comfort in Long Ago Places

I’m seeking comfort in long ago places.

There is a sense of newness and mourning colliding inside my head and heart. I’m waiting patiently for my intuition to take the lead. 

Screenshot 2020-05-17 at 4.12.12 PM copy 2

Anyone else feel like they are getting to know themselves in a whole new way thanks to the COVID-19 Pandemic?

My sense of humor has changed along with my sense of self.

I keep coming back to wanting to hug all my loves. My children and husband, the baby I lost, my parents and grandparents. I’m seeking comfort in long ago places. I wonder how old friends and old loves are faring. I’m hoping I’ve done well in helping everyone I love and have loved know the depth of my appreciation for the place they have in my heart.

IMG_2750This isn’t because I think it is my end yet I know it is an end. It’s the halting at least for now of things like concerts, baseball and dance competitions. It is also a hiatus for my large-group events and hugging my clients and feeling the energy in the room move up and expand then explode in light.

It’s the finale of jobs, relationships and life as we have always known it.

cropped-act-of-soul.png

It’s an end to the old me and the old you. We cannot help but respond to the tentative place we have on the planet made more obvious by this insidious virus.

Nor can we deny the beauty and strength of the human race.

If we look past the ruling forces that govern each country and dial into the people that live there we will have achieved so much.

No matter how near or far, we are neighbors and cousins.

So what do we do with this sense of closeness in the midst of social distancing?

your soul is wise

When I feel lost in a sea of anxiety and doubt I remember the most difficult times in my life and how I found my way through and out of them. I’ve long thought of myself as a survivor.  When all outward signs pointed toward me achieving nothing I achieved everything.

It is strange that time has taught me that we are meant to survive until we are not.

We will make it through this time in our lives and we will help others along the way. 

This Universe as OneThis time of sheltering at home has offered many gifts. Have you accepted them?

As we experience tremendous loss how do we find something, anything good?

We may not. At least not right away.

At some point though we will remember the co-worker or aunt who reached out to help or the coincidence that appeared out of nowhere and transformed our life.

We are not alone. We are connected one to the other through our light and through our love.

April 2018

So fall or jump into feeling your love. Love of your fur-family-member, your spouse or partner, family, friends, job, and land. All love is love of light and all light is a spark of the One Universal Light.

You’ve got this! We’ve got this!

In all things…Trust your gut, follow your heart and use your head.

May you find some sweetness in your day and may you know how un-alone you are.

Hello There Mercury Retrograde, I See You Are Back!

This is the first Mercury Retrograde of 2020!

Be inspired

This Mercury retrograde is in creative compassionate Pisces and goes from February 17th-March 10th. 

Screenshot 2020-02-16 at 10.55.29 PMRetrogrades happen a few times per year, when the planet Mercury slows down and appears to stop and move backward but it’s an optical illusion..there is movement forward.

We can look forward to two more Mercury Retrogrades this year. June 18th – July 12th and October 14th – November 3rd.

This rocky little planet is one of communication as in speaking, reading, listening, and negotiating. It’s also the planet of code, meaning computer code. So when this planet retrogrades, these areas (and more) often get chaotic and/or spin out of control. It’s wise to double and triple check documents before signing or if possible wait until the effects of the retrograde subside.

The message from mercury retrograde is slow down and deal with what is deep down. The stuff we stuff tends to come up when Mercury Retrogrades. This Pisces flavored Retrograde may reveal emotional patterns that could use a hug. 

Mercury and your gifts

And it just may help us clear the way so we can see why we came here in the first place! We all have something uniquely special to share. Sometimes we are afraid to reveal it because we are fearful of what other people will think.

Mercury Retrogrades help us clear our ‘stuff’ which helps us find our groove!

I’m using what could likely feel like Planetary PMS to help me move through my fear! It’s all about leaning into my soul and feeling my feelings.

And I’m spending tons of time with one of my best friends, my intuition!

Insights are so much louder when we allow our feelings to breathe! 

insights yesA few of my favorite things to do when Mercury is in Retrograde is…Clean my fridge, recycle magazines, and clean out drawers and under my bed. And…go for walks with my dog, take long baths and take a break from old-worn-out-thinking! 

Be sure to let your soul-light shine and know that the Universe has your back!

Hey Summer Solstice!

 

hey summer solstice

I love to write about celebrating…especially when it comes to the light of the soul!

On Friday, June 21, the sun beams bright from our skies and longer than on any other day of the year. It’s summer solstice!

The word ‘solstice’ means sun standing still and is derived from the Latin word solstitium.

It’s true; the summer solstice is the longest day of the year. Solstices are contrasting on either side of the equator, so the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere is the actually the winter solstice in the Southern Hemisphere.

I like to think of the solstice as being triggered by the tilt of the Earth.

The divine energy it radiates will help elevate your vibration! Solstices help us dial into to ourselves so we can better comprehend where to point our personal focus.

Whatever we focus on multiplies. 

In fact, what we see, what we say, and what we think is what we get. 

What are you focusing on?

Whatever it is, you are giving it great power.

For example…

The level of personal expectation we attach to our lives, including our work is astounding. All of our endeavors, including the professional ones, illustrate something of who we are at the core.

This has nothing to do with status; it’s all about soul. 

Your soul is involved in your business

One of the elements I appreciate as an intuitive coach is my ability to profoundly connect with people. Many feel alone and small, and fear being exposed. But I see the light in their souls and reflect it back. Most of all, I love and believe in people. Connecting with and helping others is my passion.

I have connected soul to soul with people even before I came out of the psychic closet. In my life I’ve been in real estate, cut hair, sold print advertising and worked for a technology firm. These are just a few of my past vocations. 

Though you may not always love the work you are doing right now, there is something special in it for you. Your soul guided you there for a reason. Find that something and your life will become even more dazzling. 

Make a habit out of finding something to appreciate everywhere you go and feel yourself fill with light. The light is your connection to your higher-knowing-self.

Allow this inner-knowing to be the backdrop of your every action. The Universe supports you in this.

We human beings are magical creatures. We can heal a broken heart or break a whole one with words that hold comfort and affection or anxiety and acrimony.

The words we say to ourselves are the most powerful of all.

Speak with kindness. 

Compassion can be a lifesaver.

always-on-my-path

So as you prepare for the summer solstice, find something you like about where you are, and speak and think words that feel like a hug. The divine energy of this solstice will help elevate your vibration!

I am here I am whole I am now

The Light That is You!

I don’t know about you, but I drown in too shallow of water.

For years I have written myself out of sadness and into the light.

The spirit within 1

I definitely gravitate toward people who have danced with their own shadows. Those who are willing to sink into their pain in order to catapult themselves out of it!

You know them and may even be one of them. I’m referring to the writers, singers, authors, deep thinkers, painters and sensitive lovers of life.

While it’s true that I’ve made peace with my own loneliness and now feel whole, it’s also true that balance is a moving target.

Balance-is-a-moving B

What I mean is, we can find our balance, meaning peace but things around and within us change. That’s life. It is when we can find our balance again and again that life begins to feel really good! Offer yourself silence

Our innate intuitive knowledge resides in the light. So do those who have danced with their own shadows. danced with my shadows until

Light attracts Light

The first time I saw the phrase, Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe I fell in love with it. But our vibration is not about who we are, it’s about how we are so how does that translate when it comes to our tribe?

Are there people who can be comfortable enough within their own wobble that they won’t be dissatisfied with ours?

The answer to this is YES. Just be yourself. Be your loving, approving-self whenever you are able. When you are not, just breathe.

Breathe and allow your calm, knowing, higher-soul-self to settle in. Let the moments that stink be just that, moments. Write them out of yourself and into the light!

I had one those moments tonight when I was faced, yet again with the knowledge that as a medium, I’m still considered strange.

For-over-30years-Ive (1)

I’m back in the light!

LIFE’S A BITCH BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE!

April snow 2019

SNOW is a FOUR-Letter-Word in my house. Typically I’m pretty chill about the weather but this winter has changed all that. I’m pissed! 

Living in and raising children in Minnesota has been divine. The people, schools, and seasons are amazing! Well, all but one season that is..winter. It’s not the cold that bothers me so much, it’s the ice and snow…and we have had so much of it this season. I know the entire planet is experiencing weird climate changes and they are not fun. 

Frankly, it’s made me a little grouchy today. I’ve held out on doing much posting on social media because I haven’t wanted my yucky vibe to wash over anyone or anything. My clients rescheduled due to the snow, ice, sleet, wind and thunderstorms so I’ve had some time to think.

The other day one of my kids borrowed my car and forgot to return the key. It was lost within said child’s room. As a result of that and the snow, I was late to a meeting and unfortunately, totally bitchy. 

I apologized to my client, a smart business owner and explained that I would be more relaxed in a few minutes. She said, “No problem, just be who you are.” I loved her response and thought…I’m not being who I are, I’m being how I are! 

Allowing your spirit to shine

So I’ve been pondering the art of moving from a heavy place emotionally speaking, to a light place. Not because I feel heavy right now but because through my work and my life in general, I meet people in various stages of grief. As a medium, I’m a conduit between worlds so am witness to some pretty glorious moments of forgiveness, clarity and closure. There are a few recurring powerhouse components that elevate and escalate the process. 

The pivotal factor is our willingness to change. 

Change is challenging for most of us, especially when it involves death, divorce, or any other emotional crisis. As a medium and intuitive coach my clientele includes people who have experienced at least one of the above in a big way.

Let’s face it, most of us have experienced some level of emotional crisis.

Because we have gone through or are in the midst of a crisis doesn’t make us special, it just makes us survivors of life’s bumps. Everyone experiences some level of tragedy and sadness and I am in no way playing that down.  Clearly, some wounds go deeper than others.

I am not a therapist and so not qualified to speak from a psychological standpoint. I speak from a spiritual standpoint.

The brilliant light of my soul

Finding a way to move through the pain and not be defined by it is vital. Knowing the darkness and choosing to move toward the light deepens the colors in our soul. Everything then has more flavor and brings greater delight.

pablo - 2019-03-31T145614.930

In my experience, when I  feel blue or depressed it is horrible and I find it difficult to see with any clarity. But we are all more than our feelings and emotions. This means we are not depression even though we may feel depressed. We are beings of light and when we are sad that light seems dull or even extinguished, but it is not.

When I remember that what I’m experiencing is just a moment in my life, I feel empowered. My energy is ignited, my thoughts fill me with light, and the light fills me with joy.

Inhale the beauty

So what’s the fastest way to get there?

Excerpt from The Happy Medium: Speaking the Language of Intuition

For centuries musicians, philosophers, poets and the like have searched for the key to happiness with as much passion as the many scientists who study energy in its countless forms. What’s interesting is that happiness is an actual energy. If only they had all gotten together and read the Winnie-the-Pooh books by A. A. Milne, they may have found their answers neatly tucked within the pages.

Do you remember Eeyore, the cynical character in the Winnie-the-Pooh books? He’s Winnie-the-Pooh’s ever-glum, satirical, and doubtful donkey friend. In his eyes, nothing ever goes right, so as “luck” would have it, nothing much does.

And then there’s Pooh’s enthusiastic, energetic, optimistic—yet less-than-responsible—mischief-making tiger friend, Tigger. He loves to bounce around and thinks that whatever he does, he does best. He’s happy-go-lucky, and so as “luck” would have it, things repeatedly turn out well for him.

So what does this have to do with lightening our mood?

If we are willing to go with a more light-filled thought versus the dark ones, our mood is elevated. The higher the thought the more light. The more light, the more happiness and insights.

It’s true that what we see is what we get. This is not only a mind-set—it’s an energy-set. Our “luck” is simply a manifestation of our vibrational energy frequency. Our vibrational frequency is the level at which we radiate. It’s the vibe we radiate.

What’s your vibe?

Feelings and emotions

The higher the thought the brighter the light.

When we feel irritated by someone’s driving or attitude, just be as neutral possible. Neutral is of the light so this means you are getting closer to it!

Remember…

People see things as they are, not as we are. 

We are not our emotional state of being. We are souls made of light.

Our feelings show us how we are not who we are.

Being willing to lighten our thoughts lightens our emotional load. 

Being willing to change changes everything.

The spirit within

Our feelings and emotions don’t determine who we are, just how we are at the moment.

It’s true, life can be a bitch but we don’t have to be!

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.

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.

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!

An Emotional Eclipse

 

 

 

Hello exciting New Year and Hello New Moon Solar Eclipse! New moons always mean a fresh start and eclipses bring big, bold, new beginnings externally as well as internally. This new year starts off with a bang as our vision to see an internal side of ourselves and others is sparked.

The cosmos do not disappoint!

On this the first anniversary of my mom’s transition into spirit I am filled with memories of her. For most children their relationship with their mom is one of love mixed with salt and pepper. I’ve learned that all relationships can be bitter mixed with sweet. 

For me on this day, I am flooded with contrasting emotions. I would love to say that I am so evolved that the memories are only of the last several months of her life, when things between us were the very best.

emotional anniver

But as I sit here in my cozy family room with my dog sprawled out on my lap, I feel what it was like to be 14-years-old curled up and sobbing in my bed. In the weeks prior she  told me I wasn’t a child she could mother. Back then, the way she felt about me radiated throughout the house. My awareness of her disdain colored my thoughts dark and suffocated my self-esteem.

Time has taught me patience so I now breathe, relax into how I feel and allow the feelings to wash away.

In my mind I am gently moving the tear-drenched-curls from my eyes and am telling myself a different story than the one I told myself back then.

Her rejection of me wasn’t really of me, it was her refusal of a part of herself. My mom was reacting to her own wounds. I deserved all the love in the Universe and received it through the kind acts of neighbors, relatives and friends.

rewrite your story

As I tell myself a different story about what went down, not an untrue story but one based on a different perspective, my heart warms and I am able to feel the light I’ve been filled with for the last 40-some-years.

Because I allowed myself to freely feel (and write) I’m able to remember with love the wonderful conversations my mother and I had during the last 24-months of her life.

We truly cannot pick the memories that arise. For me, several of them have been surprising, but we can choose what story we tell ourselves about what the memories mean. And that saved me today as it has before. I’m now able to feel my love for her fully because I allowed myself to quickly clear, emotionally speaking.

I’ve been interacting consciously with the spirits around me  since I was a teen and have literally read thousands of people. I’ve noticed that there is a rhythm to the soul’s journey as well as a theme.

The people who are the happiest are not those who have sailed through life seemingly tragedy-free. Quite the contrary, the happiest people are the ones who shine a spotlight on the good stuff without ignoring the bad.

So today’s theme for me is a reminder to focus on the happier version of my story. This way, I can honestly write a happier ending to my childhood. After all, it ushered me into my now, where I am loved, and safe, and wanted.

So now, I’m completely filled with memories of my mom smiling, talking about her beloved books while sipping iced-tea. She is radiant and I am peaceful.

It’s okay to miss what we could have had in our relationships with those we love as long as it doesn’t blind us to what we do have.

I’m not only talking about this, I’m teaching it. We actually ARE the authors of the story our soul unfolds. Let’s be conscious of this!

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.
