The Happy Medium: Awakening to Your Natural Intuition

Jodi Livon. Llewellyn Publications, $16.95 (286pp) ISBN 978-0-7387-1463-9

Livon is a psychic medium, with 25 years on the job, who wants to reassure people that their late loved ones are doing alright in the great beyond, and that each one of us has inherent psychic abilities to confirm this fact, if we'd awaken our intuition and maintain an open mind. Through a series of anecdotes and personal revelations, Livon wends a convincing story of solace and empowerment, without flogging her business overmuch or devolving into New Age platitudes. She also provides some practical advice and background, including the ""psychic code"" and the role of corporate psychics (""intuitive coaches""). Livon's grounded approach to extrasensory phenomena will fascinate and rededicate those who already believe, but presents a solid and measured discussion that may give skeptics reason to reconsider.
