Doreen Virtue New Age Courses on Italian Site

Chakra Clearing Certification Course with Doreen Virtue

ETA 6 Feb 2018: Three days after exposing Doreen Virtue’s double dealings in foreign countries and the chakra course has just now been taken off the menu on the Italian site… but the automated oracle readings are still there. You can ask questions of the the Angels HERE and the Unicorns HERE. Most shocking of all, she is still selling TAROT decks on this site!! Maybe they will disappear too now that I have pointed out to English-speaking readers that Doreen still encourages ORACLE & TAROT READINGS on her Italian site. Let’s see…

ETA 11 Feb 2018: The Chakra Clearing course was presumably pulled from Doreen’s site by mylife.it the company that manage it for her at her request. Why did she not request to have all her New Age courses from their site while she was at it? They are still selling her Card Reader course which means she is still making money from teaching people how to connect with ‘lower energy’ and engaging in practices that are ‘detestable to the Lord.’

Yesterday, it became apparent that Doreen Virtue had participated in the German New Age Flow! event. I posted about it on my Facebook Profile page. As usual, Doreen found out about my post. I’m not sure who from camp DV is monitoring my posts, but you may recall it wasn’t long ago they made several significant changes to the ‘From Christianity to New Age’ book after I reviewed it (including removing a sentence where Doreen Virtue dissed New Agers). She issued an official statement with regards to the German event: Continue reading “Doreen Virtue New Age Courses on Italian Site”

A Review of ‘From New Age to Christianity’ by Doreen Virtue et al.

from new age to christianity a review

ETA 27 January 2018 – The book I reviewed on 17 January has been changed, the old edition removed (along with the negative reviews) and a new edition has been uploaded. See comments further down…

I first learned of the book ‘From New Age to Christianity‘ thanks to a couple of my friends belonging to the group with the same name on Facebook. Because I had already heard that this group is in no way inclusive of all Christian Paths from a Catholic friend, I was curious to see if Doreen Virtue would go all out in this book and ‘come out’ as a fundamentalist.

Doreen Virtue Advises Tarot Readers, Witches and Mediums are ‘Detestable to the Lord’

Doreen Virtue Advices Witches, Mediums and Tarot Readers are Detestable to the Lord

Why should anybody care that Doreen now advises that mediums, Tarot readers and witches are ‘detestable to the Lord’? Shouldn’t we just let her get on with her fundamentalist Bible-believing Christian teachings – ‘Live and let live,’ right? Continue reading “Doreen Virtue Advises Tarot Readers, Witches and Mediums are ‘Detestable to the Lord’”

Doreen Virtue’s Divine Guidance Church

Doreen Virtue's Church of Divine Guidance

Not long after the August Eclipse post about Doreen Virtue denouncing the Tarot, I found out that Doreen Virtue was planning to start a Jesus-centred church. These plans were not new, as you might think since she only recently converted to traditional Christianity. The permission for the church was obtained in 2014 under the name Church of Divine Guidance. The public registration records for the Divine Guidance church can be found HEREContinue reading “Doreen Virtue’s Divine Guidance Church”

Why is Doreen Virtue teaching women to submit?

wife submit to your husband doreen virtue

ETA 7/10 Doreen denies writing about women submitting on her page

In this ‘Mornings with the Lord‘ video from 6 November 2017, Doreen slams my blog claiming I’m writiting about her because my blog is monetised. I plan a separate post on this because I want to stay on topic. This is the new edited text for her Archangel Michael page:

“All holy angels are ranked and submit themselves to God’s authority.  Submission here being an honor that gives power and strength; never taking it away.”

Apparently she never wrote the words in the screenshot and she missed them out when she was proofreading what went on her site. What kind of proofreading is that then? Missing a type or two… Sure (I do that all the time!) but this…?? Sounds like she is submitting to the will and outrage of the public if you ask me. Mission accomplished.

Doreen Virtue’s Newfound Misogyny

What is happening? Former assertiveness coach Doreen Virtue is now teaching women to submit to their husbands. The screenshot above is from the Archangel Michael Page on Doreen’s Angel Therapy website. What happened to bring this radical change about? Does Doreen Virtue actually believe in this… or is there something more sinister going on? Is she being manipulated by a strong male influence?

Female Submission and the LGBTQ Community

As someone with close family ties to members of the LGBTQ community, I found Doreen’s comment worrying, not just because it turns the clock back 150 or so years for women… It also endangers already vulnerable members of the LGBTQ community and does nothing for gay marriage equality. I tried asking Rad about this since he will be on stage with Doreen in only one month’s time as part of this event. He did not reply.

Continued Hay House Censorship

And what is happening with Hay House using censorship to prevent this from coming out? Since Rad declined to comment, I tried asking about these new teachings on the Hay House Australia Facebook page. Not only did I not get a reply but my comments were deleted and I was blocked. Ursula Clarke tried asking why I had been blocked which resulted in her getting blocked too.

Ursula Clarke asking why Hay House blocked me and deleted my comments

How do you feel about religious female submission? Someone piped up to defend Doreen Virtue and said she too likes ‘a strong man’ and didn’t see anything wrong with this.

My reply:

How can you even begin to equate a strong male presence with submission to one’s husband? How about two strong presences instead – one male and one female, without the submission aspect? No? Because that sounds a hell of a lot healthier to me. It’s one thing to choose to be submissive (emotionally/sexually, whatever…) and another to have someone preach at you that you have to be.

Others are saying that the word ‘submission’ doesn’t mean what we think it means.

My reply (copied and pasted from the dictionary):

submission
səbˈmɪʃ(ə)n/Submit
noun
1.
the action of accepting or yielding to a superior force or to the will or authority of another person.
“they were forced into submission”
synonyms: yielding, capitulation, agreement, acceptance, consent, accession, compliance
“an instinctive submission to authority”
2.
the action of presenting a proposal, application, or other document for consideration or judgement.
“reports should be prepared for submission at partners’ meetings”
synonyms: presentation, presenting, proffering, tendering, proposal, proposing, tabling, introduction, suggestion, venturing, broaching, airing, lodgement, positing
“you are required to write a report for submission to the Board”

Boycott Hay House

Isn’t it time Hay House nipped this in the bud? Or are they planning on dragging their own company back in time 150 years too? It would certainly seem so with all the censorship that is going on!

If you are NOT ok with this, please give the post a share, read up on the ongoing boycott and join the Hay House Boycott group on Facebook.

 

Blessed Be!

The Truth About Doreen Virtue’s Christianity Conversion

The Truth About Doreen Virtue's Conversion to Christianity

Doreen Virtue’s Supposed Conversion to Traditional Christianity

I am still getting emails about what happened since Doreen Virtue‘s conversion announcement and many of those emails are based on hopes, fears and speculations rather than the facts. Because of this, I thought it might be nice for have just one blog article to point people to with all the facts neatly gathered so that people can use their discernment.

A Theological Doctrine of Angels, My Arse!

I’ve had half a mind to review Doreen Virtue’s Certified  course for a while now, to help prevent others from throwing their money in the bin but something happened this morning that made me realise I have waited longer than I ought to. I felt ‘OK’ with giving the course fee away because it was going to an animal sanctuary. However, this morning, I received a document in my inbox (happy to forward to anyone who needs it) that made me realise that Doreen Virtue‘s animal sanctuary is now being dissolved. **ETA I have obtained permission from the lady who created this document, June Goldburg, to share it directly in the post – She calls it ‘a simple fact checker.’** Continue reading “A Theological Doctrine of Angels, My Arse!”

My Doreen Virtue Certificates Are Worthless – Now What??

the masks are coming off new age teachers

I’d like to start this post with a two-fold apology, the first being for the random image that illustrates this post (Pixabay as usual) and the second for blogging about Doreen Virtue again – I honestly didn’t think it would be necessary…. As for the picture… Well, things are pretty surreal right now. The masks are coming off false teachers and we find ourselves in unknown territory, having to think entirely for ourselves (also yay!).  Continue reading “My Doreen Virtue Certificates Are Worthless – Now What??”

Doreen Virtue Denounces Tarot + Other Eclipse Musings

I’d like to start this post by thanking Doreen Virtue for all that she has done that is good, beautiful and uplifting – It’s a great deal and I know many people (myself included) who have been helped by her. I have journeyed with her since I read the Lightworker’s way back in 2003 but I have realised that I must now part ways with her and her body of work. The certificates I gained through training with her are still valid for insurance purposes but I will certainly not reference them for any other purposes in the future – not much point when the Teacher has denounced the teachings.
