Why is Doreen Virtue teaching women to submit?

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.

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!

Hay House Censorship Exposed

Ethics in the Spiritual Publishing Industry - Hay House Censorship Exposed

It is #WorldValuesDay and the Moon is New in Libra. A good time to expose the censorship and unethical practices of ‘spiritual’ publishers Hay House. For a supposedly spiritual publishing company, they have a very warped understanding of ethical behaviour in business. Continue reading “Hay House Censorship Exposed”

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.

How to get a refund for your Doreen Virtue course

how to get a refund

When I blogged about how my Doreen Virtue certificates were worthless to my business after the Teacher denounced the very essence on her work HERE, HERE and HERE I initially had no plans to ask for refunds for any of the courses, mainly because I didn’t know my rights as a consumer. It was the talk about a possible class action lawsuit that made me realise that I did indeed have a valid claim after how unprofessionally both Doreen Virtue and Hay House handled questions and claims from concerned students.  Continue reading “How to get a refund for your Doreen Virtue course”

Where the Hell Is Wayne, Doreen?

Dr Wayne W. Dyer

Dr Wayne W. Dyer has been my hero since I was ten years old. I found his book ‘Your Erroneous Zones’ in my family home and read it over a period of a few nights. I remember lying in bed reading and being filled with light and hope by the power of his words. I remember the period that followed… I was as happy as I had ever been between the ages of ten and 12, and much of it was thanks to being able to meet the challenges of my abusive home environment strengthened by Wayne’s wisdom.

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.
