Loving self completely is another Jewel for Self Discovery on our journey of the soul. Love is a powerful energy that is within us and all around us as God is love.

Loving self completely is an essential component for us to live as spirit beings. When we by-pass self love and search for love from others first, we hinder our growth and development as spiritual beings. The place to begin first and foremost on our journey of the soul is with loving self completely.

Healing begins with loving self completely. The wounded parts of self become whole in the light of the healing energy of embracing self with love. This is especially helpful during the grieving process.

Love and Accept Yourself

Love and accept self just as you are. Self love begins with embracing ourself more fully, the good, the bad and the ugly.

Love and accept self without judgement. When we accept self completely we honor our body, our mind, our emotions and spirit.

We are all flawed as humans. When we can see the positive and negative parts of self we can love and accept self more completely. The natural result then is to love and accept others more easily, just as they are without conditions. We then become more aware of our Divine nature, our connection to each other and to Goddess Gaia for we are all one.


Write the affirmation "I love myself completely" slowly on a piece of paper, line by line. As you write stay focused on each word and it's true meaning like a meditation.

Pay attention to how you feel as you write these words of your affirmation. When feelings of pain, doubt, resistance or limiting beliefs come up simply turn the page over and jot them down. For example you may feel "I don't deserve love because I am not good enough." Jot the feeling down and go back to the front side of the page and continue to write the affirmation "I love myself completely."

As more fear or limiting thoughts rise up from inside, continue to turn the paper over and write them down. This simple process is powerful because you are feeding your subconscious mind a positive statement of truth or affirmation. You also get to see your unconscious blocks to loving self. By seeing your inner blocks you are shedding light on them, allowing a healing to occur in the presence of our own self love. Love is the healer, the purifier. Love brings up everything unlike itself especially when you use the "I love myself completely" affirmation.

"God is love. We, being the children of God means that we are love made manifest in flesh. Your essence is love." Channeled by Maureen

Your essence is love. You are here to live love unconditionally in every moment.This is quite a challenge as we are human as well as Divine. Our spirit is willing and the flesh is often weak.

Loving self completely bridges our humanity with our divinity since your essence is love.

When we love ourselves we are loving Spirit and all of our brothers and sisters in the universe. We are then manifesting the truth that your essence is love.

The pathway to being your true essence and living it is loving self completely.

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.

A special thanks to my friend Jayne for photo of hands.

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.

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.
