The Divine Mother is the embodiment of the Sacred Feminine energy. In the Roman Catholic religion the Divine Mother is Mary, the mother of Jesus, also known as the Blessed Mother. Divine Mother Mary's qualities are unconditional love, compassion, mercy, strength, patience, forgiveness and accessibility to all in need.
Since childhood I was raised as a Catholic. The Divine Mother Mary was a natural part of my life at home, in school and in church. Both of my parents respected and loved the Divine Mother and depended on her many beautiful qualities to help them with the many challenges of raising five children. They had faith in the Blessed Mother's ability to lift them up with her love and compassion. My mother looked to the Divine Mother for clear direction in problem solving for the family.
Divine Mother as Mary, the Sacred Feminine aspect of God is an ascended master available to each of us as the great comforter and counselor. When we honor the Sacred Feminine we help to balance the male female energy within each of us and in the universe.
Balance Male Female Energies
God is neither male nor female and is beyond form and duality. As humans we need to name and give form to an abstract concept so that we can connect to it at our level of awareness. The Divine Essence has become a Father God figure elevated over Mother God, where man is valued over woman. The time has come to balance male female energies within ourselves and in our belief systems by honoring the Sacred Feminine.
The religions of the world have different beliefs, ideologies, and rituals. In looking at what religions have in common it is the intention of love, compassion and kindness to all living things. These qualities are of the Sacred Feminine, which when honored helps to balance male female energies.
Devotee of the Sacred Feminine
Each morning when I meditate I gaze upon the image of the Divine Mother Mary which hangs in my healing room. As a devotee of the Sacred Feminine Goddess I experience her love, strength, patience and accessibility to me.
As a devotee of the Sacred Feminine these wonderful qualities are growing and developing in me now which is process that occurs organically on the path of devotion. Her wisdom has guided me for most of my adult life through so many challenging times. I am so grateful to her for that.
Mother Mary's Words of Wisdom
"When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be." The Beatles (Lennon/McCartney) from the album "Let it Be."
Many years ago when I was married to my first husband and pregnant with our first child I had difficulty sleeping. In fact I hadn't slept for more than a few hours over a three day period. My husband and I were in "times of trouble" which affected my ability to sleep.
On the third sleepless night I asked Mother Mary to help me fall asleep.
As I closed my eyes in prayer the Mother Mary appeared to me holding baby Jesus. Then she slowly moved back and came forward again this time holding my unborn child in her arms.
Her words of wisdom to me were : "Rejoice in your motherhood as I rejoiced as the mother of Jesus." My whole body relaxed with her comforting words of wisdom.
Peacefully I fell asleep that night feeling cradled in the love and compassion of Mother Mary's words of wisdom. That was my first spiritual experience of the Divine Mother who was there for me when I needed her the most as a new mother-to-be.
Love and Compassion
The Divine Mother is the mother of all children of God, not just Catholics. She is accessible to all beings in the Universe. Her unconditional love and compassion is abundant and therefore cannot be confined by religious beliefs.
When we focus, pray and meditate on her image, her qualities of love and compassion are available for us to access, grow and expand within us. In fact this is the intention of the devotional path to God consciousness.
It is not enough to love and admire an ascended master's qualities. The next step is to access those same qualities such as love and compassion and grow them within ourselves. Then we are able to share with our brothers and sisters through service and in service to love and compassion itself.
Mercy is another quality that the Divine Mother carries and expresses to each of us.
Last spring my adult nephew was diagnosed with fourth stage liver cancer. Our family was in shock, pain and anguish as we watched him suffer over the next few months. During the summer on the day that he passed I sobbed in agony for my family and myself. He was the third nephew in 18 months to pass on, as well as other family members in the past few years. Sobbing in pain, I cried out to Mother Mary to have mercy on my family and myself.
Suddenly I felt the soothing balm of peace flow through me. When I called my niece, less than an hour after my nephew passed, she said that she felt peaceful as well as my nephew's wife and son who were present when he passed. I am still in awe at how quickly the Divine Mother responded to my cries for mercy.
Thank you Divine Mother, Sacred Feminine, for your words of wisdom, unconditional love, compassion, and mercy. May these qualities grow in me and in all of my brothers and sisters on Mother Earth. And so it is.

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.
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.
