Like the title? Well it seems that there are many who are upset with her and there are those who are embracing her. The Doreen Virtue Saga is about her changing her own religious views and path that she feels fits her life now. Which is fine. Go with it. Ya know.
However some are pissed off at her. Apparently there was a video, now deleted, that was posted that was more harsh into the work she did in the past that she regrets doing. Now I didn’t see this video so I can’t really go with what was said there, however, I can go with what I am feeling.
I understand both sides of this issue, and honestly this wasn’t handled right by her or Hayhouse. It left many confused and I understand that. It was just poorly announced and left many unanswered questions and answers. I did listen to Radleigh Valentine’s radio show titled “Can we all just get along” that had Doreen as a guest. It was to answer all the questions and they did. Many answers I knew from a long time ago anyway. She even answered the rough questions as well. She slapped her name on the tarot decks with Radleigh to help him start off his career. Which, and I agree with her, she really didn’t need to do that as he could have done it on his own. I love Radleigh and his energy is contagious. I wish he could be on every damn day as he brightens mine. He really seems like a very sincere, kind person. Anyhoot, listening to her and him talk was needed. If you believe what was said or not, that is for you and your path and journey.
Me? I did leave Doreen’s page on Facebook and I have yet to do so on Instagram (call it laziness). Not because of her, but of her path. I am not interested in the path she has taken. I respect her choice, but she isn’t in line with what I feel is right for me. Nothing personal and I wish her the best. However, I still employ some of her past teachings into my life because I believe in them myself. Angels and faeries being those teachings. I still use a few of her decks. There are some I bond well with and some I don’t. Ascended Masters is one of those decks I don’t bond with, which she has since stated she is wanting to redo. Sure it may be more “Christian” like and that is OK. I am not going to run out to get it though. I think I don’t bond with it because her purest heart wasn’t into it. I get that way with some decks if the creator just isn’t all for it and it can be felt at times. I still try to work with it from time to time to try to input my own energy in it, like I try with other decks I am not connecting to, but some just don’t click with me. Even though her heart wasn’t into the tarot decks, I still bonded with them because of Radleigh. He has put his heart and soul into them and I knew from the beginning that it was HIS creation not hers. Her name was just put on them to help him achieve success, which was later admitted on the radio show.
Both have stated on the radio show that the certificates that was received from the courses are still valid. They still hold true, even if the path has changed. So if you are wondering about that, it was confirmed.
I honestly feel that many were hurt, felt betrayed, felt used by the bombshell she laid to all and I understand that and can feel that as well. I feel that this was poorly handled as well which led to the confusion, betrayal feelings. But this is a lesson we must all understand. In a blink of a eye, a path can change for someone. Someone may feel they need to change their ways instantly. Even you. Even me. Don’t follow blindly. Know that at any given moment someone can change. Even so, there could be a hint of truth their past, present, and future path may bestow upon all of us. If you still believe in the past teachings or even part of them then so be it. Follow those if they fit how you feel. I believe no path is wrong and will lead all to the right way. Just as long as you aren’t harming others. 😉 Got to throw that tidbit in there.
I will continue to use some of her teachings, not all, that she gave. I will continue to use the decks that I feel a connection with. It will just be how I roll. Some felt she was fake, which I felt that in some points as well, but some points made sense to me. So it is all good. To Doreen, even though I doubt this will be read by her, I wish you the best. Sorry I can’t follow this journey with you, but I know you are following your own truth. Good luck to you!
And good luck to all. May you be blessed! 🙂
