Doreen Virtue and her Divination Decks: How do I use them and should I Repent?
Sadly, but it’s true. The new age community has lost its guru. Doreen Virtue has left all those who have been buying her oracle card decks for many years so far, taking her online and live courses and who week by week, day by day was watching her Weekly oracle cards’ videos. Since then, when she announced her decision to move on without the diversity of deities and masters by her side, except for Jesus, her Instagram does not look like before: instead of the colorful, beautiful artwork of all styles and designs, that I personally so much enjoyed seeing as it brightened my day along with the inspiring messages, now it shows only cards and messages from only one deck—with sayings ascribed to Jesus.
H-mm…It feels…strange. I mean, yeah, all of us should listen to our inner guidance and choose to follow our spiritual journey the way we see it, no problem with that. What I have a problem with though is how from a perspective of inclusion, suddenly, Doreen could convert herself to the community based on exclusion.
One of my favorite sayings of all times that I heard in a movie Chocolate, speaks about that. It was a scene of an Easter service when the local priest says this:
“I’m not sure what the theme of my homily today ought to be. Do I want to speak of the miracle of Our Lord’s divine transformation? Not really, no. I don’t want to talk about His divinity. I’d rather talk about His humanity. I mean, you know, how He lived His life, here on Earth. His kindness, His tolerance… Listen, here’s what I think. I think that we can’t go around measuring our goodness by what we don’t do. By what we deny ourselves, what we resist, and who we exclude. I think… we’ve got to measure goodness by what we embrace, what we create, and who we include.”
But so much about Doreen’s choice. As a psychic medium, I see there a lot of external influence and pressure from her close circles to make that choice and some other very personal reasons. The energy is quite heavy there despite her stories of true enlightenment. One of the first visions that I got on hearing this news, was to see Doreen sitting on a ranch, under a tree, and eating something like a pudding with a silver spoon. All looks well except for one thing. She was blindfold. It felt bad…
Anyway, I am not writing this to judge. I am very grateful to her for all the effort she put into creating the most wonderful things that are so helpful in the spiritual work that I am doing now. Her oracle card decks. For this, I am and will be always very grateful to Doreen Virtue. I took a couple of her online courses and bought a lot of her decks. Lots of them. And I love them. No, you didn’t get it. I LOVE them. They are amazing tools to connect to the higher energies and find so much guidance in so many spheres of life. They are just amazing.
(Interestingly though, the only deck that I wanted to return to Amazon, was an Ascended masters deck— exactly the one she suggested to discard along with the book on the same topic. I did not like it because I felt back then (a year ago) that I could not possibly connect to the masters that I had no clue about, such as Aengus, for example, or Hina, (I hope they will forgive me, these masters, that I knew nothing about them). I mostly was using Angel oracle cards decks, because I knew that these beings of Love and Light talked to me not only through cards but also by sending me signs all the time. How could I turn to the masters whose names were news to me?
But then something stopped me from returning this deck and I wanted to give it a try. And next time I used them, I felt a connection with my questions and by some sheer luck or magic, I usually would pull out cards that spoke to my beliefs. I often got Jesus, Mother Mary, Archangel Michael, Isis, Lakshmi. I seldom get Lady Nada or Babaji. I have noticed long ago that our beliefs and intentions to see and hear what we know attract the same. Or the cards were just playing in my hand not to be returned to Amazon…So I did not return them. But it was kind of funny to hear that it is this deck and that book was “condemned” by Doreen’s church and herself. So, there must be some kind of heresy about them…)
OK, back to the question in the title of this blog: Should I throw her decks away? Should I repent for using them? Should I convert to what Doreen now believes in?
You know, it’s so funny to see how people are seriously discussing this. Although I understand their concerns, I am wondering how soon people can change their minds, like a flock of sheep — only because their shepherd had decided to retire. Phenomenally, in her many messages and appeals to her readers and students of her courses, Doreen has taught you guys quite the opposite—to believe in yourself.
To believe in your mission that is so needed for the world. To celebrate who you are the way you are. Without looking at somebody else.
Read her books again. Watch her archived videos. It’s all about that—acknowledging who you are—a loved child of God who has a special gift of love and light, as anybody else. Who has a power of manifestation and power of making a difference once you share your inner vision with others and support them in their spiritual journey?
My answer to these questions is – for God’s sake, of course not. Not only I am not throwing her cards or stop reading her books, I am planning to buy a few more of her decks before they will be discontinued.
I am always doing multi-deck readings because I like to see the recurrent themes across the decks, and I always use the decks of cards that I am guided too depending on the person who is asking a question and her question, therefore, for some of you I will be using The Romance angels’ cards along with the Healing with Archangel Raphael cards, or, say Angel Therapy Oracle cards with the Magical Messages from the Fairies cards. They are all very functional and informative on the spot. The artwork and the messages are very beautiful and meaningful. They are enjoyable, inspiring and very helpful at times of need or leisure. Why tell me, why should I throw them away? Only because someone told Doreen that magicians and fortune-tellers are not approved by the Bible? Didn’t she know these lines from before?
Look at the images on Doreen’s cards. How empowering they are, how lovingly patient with all our needs. There is nothing against God or anybody else in them. I’m sure Jesus will like them too. (So, it’s OK, Doreen?)
Therefore, dear readers, please be not fearful of using Doreen’s cards whatsoever (remember—one of the main energies of blocking any success or love from your life is becoming too fearful about life—as Doreen also says), so don’t fret and turn your inner ear ( or third eye—what works best!)to the true messages of love that all of them—Jesus and the Angels, Archangels and the fairies’, mermaids and spiritual masters, all God’s beings are ready to share with you by sending you the energy of love, because we all are love and light, you just need to believe in that and never be afraid of talking to them as soon as the message IS of love and support.
To encourage you in your search for communication with your spiritual team, I am offering a 15-20-minute free bonus video reading using Doreen’s cards along with Amira’s and Coleen Baron-Reid’s decks if you book any of my regular price reading during the last weeks of September.
