Rev. Merriam Joan Handy (humorously referred to as Merry-I-AM) is a lifetime Light-Lover / Light-Sharer / Light-Server / Light-Player/ and Light-Teacher and Guide. She is a fully ordained Minister and Teacher of Higher Spiritualism, the Great Ascended Masters, and Cosmic Higher Conscious Beings. Channeled entities refer to her as Lady Master Merriam: A Master Teacher for Evolving Masters.
Rev. Merriam was fully ordained in 1993 after graduating from a three-year training program at the non-denominational Spiritualist Church known as Fellowships of the Spirit and their School of Spiritual Healing and Prophecy in Lily Dale, NY. During those 3 years, every monthly weekend class and week-long courses, included being trained by the many and different, top mediums and healers from around the world, which provided Merriam with a very broad spectrum of Spiritual and Metaphysical understandings and how to apply them in daily life.
In 1997, Rev. Merriam was voted Teacher of the Year at SUNY Broome Community College after providing 36 Metaphysical/Spiritual classes over a 12-year period.
Today, her degrees include a Bachelor of Science, a Bachelor of Metaphysics, and as Rev. Merriam describes it, a "been there, done that, worn that T-Shirt Doctorate of Life Degree." She is certified as a Corporate Trainer from Johnson and Wales University, as a Master Clinical Hypnotherapist, and is trained in Pastoral Psychology regarding relationships, marriages, grief, stress, and conflict counseling.
She is a previous magazine columnist, Toastmaster Area winner, and certified in Neurolinguistics Programming and Other Than Conscious Communication.
Rev. Merriam is now available as a Personal Cosmic Coach to clear your negative memories and energies and develop your inherent Divine gifts of mediumship and healing to use for yourself or to share with others. She is also a Keynote Speaker (nicknamed the Joy Lady) and an "Info-Shops" Trainer, bringing forth joyful presentations on the Awakening of Humanity into the Golden Age and in addition, now presenting Wisdom Teachings – Spiritual Q&A channeled sessions, both locally and on-line. Her Ordained Ministry makes her available for baptisms, marriages and funeral services anywhere in the country.
In Florida now for the past 24+ years, she has been on the forefront of higher consciousness awakening, sharing her Master guided knowledge with thousands of students as a true Avatar of Light, Love and Divine Truths. New information, teachings, and presentations are continuously being downloaded from the Masters and Divine Beings, which means, whatever Rev. Merriam shares, is current and State of the Art on Ascension and all related subjects. In addition, Rev. Merriam is a constant student, doing research, attending events, and gathering important and pertinent information from books, videos, and other sources.
Awake to dream no more. We are the Ones we have been waiting for. The Golden Age is upon us and within us and we are already Masters.
