"When going through hell keep going." Winston Churchill

When I first heard this quote by Churchill I laughed. After thinking about his words I realized that he was making an important point that resonated with me.

When going through hell keep going reminds me to not get stuck in the pain and searing fire of a challenging experience. Instead move through the hell to the other side where healing, transformation and peace reside.

In order to move through the tough experience we need to remember our jewels in our spiritual jewel box. When going through hell keep going because that's when we really need our jewels to help us navigate through the storm rather than pushing the panic button and feeling stuck.

Jewels in the Spiritual Jewel Box

affirmations - positive statements of truth

be in the moment - be present in the now moment

breathe - bringing in the energy of life and healing through the breath

daily prayers - conversations with God

Using Imagery for Healing

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.
