Happy Father's Day to all of you fathers today. Whether you are called Dad, Daddy, Pop, Poppa, Poppy, Father, Pappy, just know that you are loved and needed. We honor you today on Father's Day.

Today I am grateful to my dad on the other side for his loving, patient way of being a father to me when he walked the planet. I always knew that he was there for me even though he was a quiet man. Happy Father's Day!

With gratitude to the fathers of my three grandchildren I say Happy Father's Day! My son Dan is father to my beautiful granddaughter Madeline. Tim is the father of my grandson Jack. Bill is the father of adorable baby Emma. I thank you three men for making me a grandma to my precious grandchildren.

Gratitude for My Children's Dads

Today and everyday I have gratitude for my children's dads. Thank you Dan who passed in 1983. I will always be thankful to you for fathering our son Dan and our daughter Jen. I know that you still watch over them and their families.

Gratitude for my children's dads is what I feel especially today on father's Day. Thank you Parijat for fathering our beautiful daughter Siara 19 years ago. You continue to be a strong, supportive, loving presence for her in her life especially now as she is growing into womanhood.

Gratitude for my children's dads is not limited to them only. I am so grateful to my husband Mark who is a loving presence in each of my children's lives as well as in the lives of his children Holly and Zach. Thank you wonderful Mark!

Children Need Their Fathers

As a mother of three children and three grandchildren I see the importance of having a father in their lives. As a feminist I do not hesitate to say that children need their fathers as much as they need mothers.

When I was a single mother I saw the imbalance of not having my children's father around after he died. I kept feeling like I had one hand behind my back. It did not feel natural. I suffered, my children suffered because their father was not in their life. Children need their fathers.

So let's honor the fathers in our life. Fathers know that we need you, we love you, you are important to all of us. Happy Father's Day!

Intuitive Readings Seattle - Reiki Healing Seattle - Meditation Seattle

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 see me in person for an Intuitive Reading. 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 truly happy and I blessed to be able to help people and do what I love.

When you set up an Intuitive Reading in Seattle or a phone session with me, it's best to write down your questions ahead of time. This helps focus your intention on what it you want guidance for in your life.

At the beginning of your Intuitive Reading, I go deep into a meditative state and ask Spirit to allow me to be a clear and pure channel of love, healing and guidance for you. The answer to each question flows through me in words and pictures and the information received is spiritual in nature, yet practical for every day life.

I encourage all of you 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.
