Autumn Equinox is a powerful time when there is a balance between day and night, light and darkness. As we enter the sign of Libra we are also reminded of the scales symbolic of that balance.

The time to focus inward connecting to our soul is now during the Autumn Equinox. This inner journey continues throughout the approaching darkess of the upcoming cold of winter. During this time we have the opportunity to look at the darkness within us so that we can embrace ourselves in wholeness -the good, the bad and the ugly, so to speak.

The Autumn Equinox is a wonderful time to let go of the burdens that no longer serve us. This process of letting go and letting God lightens our body, mind, emotions and spirit. We get to honor all aspects of self.

Letting Go

Letting go of control is humbling and freeing. The truth is that we have very little control in our life. We only have control over our own attitudes, responses or reactions to people and situations. When we recognize our limitations we are free to allow spirit to be in charge.

Letting go allows us to feel the ease and the release that occurs when we are surrendering to God. No longer do we feel the pain of resistance and the heaviness of our burdens within and in our life. At first it feels unfamiliar like we are giving up. Also fear of the unknown can come up. Continue letting go.

Keep breathing, keep relaxing and continue to focus on the intention of letting go. Be in the moment, knowing that there is no past or future. All we have is this moment and our breath. God always guides us to what is best for us through our intuition.

"You are like a candle. Imagine you are sending light out all around you. All your words, thoughts and actions are going in many directions. If you say something kind, your kind words go in many directions, and you yourself go with them. We are ...transforming and continuing in a different form at every moment." Thich Nhat Hanh
Thich Nhat Hanh in the quote above demonstrates so beautifully the impermanence of everything in life. We are not to hold onto to anything or anyone for "we every moment."

Just as Mother Nature reminds us through the falling leaves of Autumn that impermanence is a part of life whether we like it or not, surrender or resist.

In the past 2 1/2 years 3 nephews and 2 friends have passed suddenly. Searching for some positive inspiration as the result of so much loss, the impermanence of everything, inspires me to live each day to the fullest.

During this holy season of the Autumn Equinox we have the opportunity to look at the darkness within, to let go, remember the impermanence of all of life and to live each day to the fullest.

For more than 28 years I have been helping many people from all walks of life and across the world including India, China and England.

Some clients prefer to come for an Intuitive Reading in person. However, the majority of my clients call me for phone sessions. Intuition is unlimited as God is unlimited so it doesn't matter whether you are in the same room with me or in Hong Kong! My intention is the same - to serve as a channel of clarity and healing to assist you in all areas of your life. Doing this work makes me happy. I am so blessed to be able to help people and do what I love.

Intuitive Readings in Seattle,WA and by Phone

When a client sets up an Intuitive Reading session with me I suggest that they write down their questions before the session. The specific questions help the client to focus their intention on what they want guidance for in their life.

At the beginning of the Intuitive Reading with each individual, I go into a meditative state and ask Spirit to allow me to be a clear and pure channel of love, healing and guidance for the client. The answer to each question flows through me in words and pictures. The information that I channel is spiritual yet practical.

I encourage all of my clients to:

Live your true potential
Feel your own wholeness
Experience inner peace and joy
Express your creativity
Be who you really are- perfectly human and perfectly divine

Author's Bio: 

Maureen Brennan Mercier has been a Metaphysician for over 28 years and has helped many people in all areas of their lives. While taking a meditation class in the summer of 1983, Maureen discovered her gift of channeling and began her spiritual journey.

Maureen's new found connection with her higher power helped her through the tragic death of her husband only weeks later.

Raising two children alone and overcoming other challenges throughout her life has given Maureen more strength, compassion and emotional intelligence. Her love of people and her great passion for life continually inspire her work.

Meditation Classes

Maureen teaches meditation classes using simple guided imagery and channels spiritual guidance for the group, which is uplifting. Each person is able to ask a personal question at the end of the meditation and receive specific spiritual guidance for their life journey. The energy during the meditation is very loving, compassionate and nurturing which is healing in itself.

Intuitive Readings & Spiritual Guidance

Intuitive Readings are based on the client's questions about relationships, career issues, emotional issues, health, attitudes and beliefs, loved ones who have passed on and more. Maureen goes into a meditative state where she accesses specific guidance in answer to the questions being asked. The channeled information she receives during an intuitive reading is spiritual, yet very practical. After a reading with Maureen, individuals feel more relaxed, reassured and more positive about their lives.

Reiki Training & Reiki Healing

In September 1992 Maureen received her first degree Reiki training. After years of practicing Reiki healing in small groups, workshops, centers, and retreats throughout the United States, Maureen received her second degree Reiki and Reiki Master Degree in August 1999.


Maureen is extremely grateful for the gifts of healing she has received over the years and is committed to being a channel of LOVE, GUIDANCE and HEALING. Her life's work is about assisting individuals with their healing, spiritual growth and the remembrance of who they truly are - DIVINE.
