Susan Mercer of MODERN OUTLOOKS is an End of Life Doula, Kundalini Reiki Practitioner, Energy Healer, Space Clearer, Intuitive/Medium, and Interior Designer.
Her ability to connect with individuals and spiritual beings have enabled her to assist many clients through their life transitions. Whether it is redesigning a room, transforming their home, coaching them through life’s upheavals or helping them prepare for their death, Susan takes the time to listen to each person’s desires and assists them in making their decisions with clarity, thoughtfulness and love.
Susan’s experience sitting vigil with clients through their end of life transition has given her insight into what is lacking in our Death speak. Unafraid of Death, herself, Susan offers a compassionate perspective into creating the peaceful serene space she feels necessary for the ease of passing. Her philosophy of being prepared and stating your wishes alleviates the fears of the unknown for the client and their family. I embrace the celebration of life while providing serenity during the transition/dying process.

Will I be in pain as I die?
I feel as you live well, in the flow of life, you learn to stay expanded and not constricted. As our body prepares for death, as it knows exactly how to die, ( just as it knew how to be birthed), it will stay in a state of ease. Our body may feel different at times and unfamiliar sensations may arise. With awareness, conscious breathing, meditation and visualizations, these sensations can be diminished. Music also helps control the mind and constriction to keep us in a peaceful state. Of course, there are pain medications available to ease the pain as well.

Here’s what people are saying
Jerri WilliamsSusan Mercer is a gifted Intuitive/Medium and her readings for me have been extremely accurate. She is able to convey the information in a truthful, positive and loving way. She asks questions and helps to keep my mind open to “what if”. She has a fantastic way of combining her psychic skills with common sense and her advice is always spot on. I would highly recommend Susan as an aid along your Path to Knowing.
Richard LeverseeSusan is a gifted facilitator and ceremonial guide. She recently led a group of us in an amazing Full Moon Solstice celebration at Pismo Beach. Susan beautifully ritualized the setting of the Solstice sun with a guided meditation intended for releasing that which no longer serves us. She then artfully led us in another guided meditation intended for manifesting something new, synchronized with the rising of the full moon. Sacred, sweet and powerful on so many levels! Thank you Susan.
Cari LeverseeWorking and being with Susan is so comfortable, easy and helpful in so many ways. I find Susan to be a great listener, very intuitive and quite calming. With graceful wisdom and diversely talented experience, Susan artfully conducted a beautiful space clearing and abundance welcoming ceremony for new office space, skillfully guided me toward balance and wholeness via her full moon/summer solstice meditation and breathed fresh life and wondrous whimsy into some shadowy and dreary spaces within my life. Susan has many talents and offers many gifts that I will be tapping into again and again with great delight and much appreciation.
