Healing the broken heart is a multifaceted process that takes patience and self care. The first step is to acknowledge that indeed our heart is broken whether it is through the death of a loved one, a relationship ending or a betrayal in a close relationship.

Once you acknowledge the pain and embrace the experience healing the broken heart can begin. This sounds simple yet can be challenging. The natural inclination is to protect the heart by denying that the heart is broken in the first place. Anger can easily be a way to mask the pain and keep the focus on blaming the other.

The heart is the healer, the purifier. The heart's purpose is to give and receive love. In healing the broken heart we need to be conscious of our heart's natural function and not close down the heart as a result of the pain. This is simple but it is not easy.

Be Patient with the Process

Be patient with the process as healing the broken heart takes time. There is no need to rush an organic process that is done from the inside out. Yes it is difficult and challenging to be present in the pain when your natural inclination is to escape the harshness of the experience.

You honor your emotions in the moment by being present to them. Stay the course no matter how painful and be patient with the process. Be conscious of your breath, breathing into the heart space. With each breath you bring in healing and light energy. Release the pain of your shattered heart on the out breath.

In surrendering to the pain in your heart you allow the universe to provide what you need in order to heal so be patient with the process. You attract to you the compassionate, loving friends that support your healing. All you need to do is receive their love.

Self Love

"Love, love, love thyself." Channeled by Maureen

Self love is an essential ingredient in healing the broken heart. Love is a powerful energy that is within us and all around us.

God is love, and we, being the children of Goddess means that our essence is love. It takes the powerful energy of self love to heal the shattered heart.

Self love is necessary for us to live as the spirit beings that we are, having a human experience. So many of us focus on seeking love from outside of ourselves through our relationships with parents, friends, intimate partners and children. We all want to give and receive love.

When we by-pass self love and search for love from others first, we hinder our growth and development as spiritual beings. Then when our hearts are broken our challenge to heal is more compounded.

The place to begin first and foremost on our spiritual journey is with self love especially as we are healing the broken heart. Through consciously breathing into the heart, having patience and receiving support from loved ones and the Universe our broken hearts will heal. Our hearts will then be capable of loving even more powerfully without limitations. And so it is!

For more than 27 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 Saugerties NY 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 27 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 issues, 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 and intuitive reading is spiritual, yet very practical. After a reading with Maureen, individuals feel more relaxed, reassured and more positive about their lives.
