Doreen Virtue and my thoughts on her change of heart

This has been a bit of a hard message to write. It involves a past teacher who I’ve greatly admired, Doreen Virtue. I was her student and what she created changed my life in a very powerful and positive way. She helped set this career path into motion for me and I know this is true for many others as well. For this, for her, I am eternally grateful.

That said, I know there is a lot of fear, anxiety and disruption that has come out of her recent choices and announcements. To that, I feel heavily guided to respond.

In 2017 Doreen Virtue, author of many angel oracle card decks, metaphysical books, an angel communication teacher and so much more, announced that she was leaving all of that behind to convert 100% to strict Christianity. Not only did she leave it all behind, but she denounced it and claimed that those teachings were the working of demonic forces.

Earlier this week, she posted an article: An A-Z List of New Age Practices to Avoid and Why. It’s a lengthy article and going straight to her bit on angels, she shares that demons can disguise themselves as angels. Her belief is that we should not be speaking directly with the angelic realm and that it’s impossible for us humans to know the difference between benevolent and malevolent energy.

It can be easy to feel alarmed by her claim, especially since she used to be considered an expert on all things angels. It can be easy to judge her. It can be easy to doubt what you know to be true in your heart.

Here’s what I have to say about all that…

First, we have no idea what precipitated this change of direction for her. To judge, condemn or criticize her is not what our angels want. It’s not our role and honestly serves no one. Instead, we are asked by our angels to hold her  in the purest vibrations of love and light so that she can live out her aligned life and work through whatever karma she may be facing. May she know true grace.

Second, she’s made it clear that she no longer wishes to communicate with the angelic realm. That’s her choice. It doesn’t mean that what you know to be true in your heart is wrong. In fact, I take it as an invitation to double down on the faith I have in my angels who prove their existence and unending love to me every day. You can, if you choose, do the same. Your heart is a powerful energetic vortex and it is my strong belief that it knows the difference between benevolence and malevolence quite easily. The mind, where fear takes up residence, is what interrupts the process of discernment. Trust the Truth that lies deep in your heart – where your angels live – and you will know only goodness.

Third, you may have spent much of your life giving your authority away to other people you believed knew better than you – parents, siblings, teachers, religious mentors,… If you believe that your angels are guiding you back to wholeness, to trusting yourself, to reclaiming your beautiful, true voice and power – then I invite you to let this earth plane drama go and to release any inclination to give it continued energy. I invite you to continue to work with your angels to reclaim your inner authority and embrace the decision making process that is yours alone in partnership with your winged allies.

I pray this message brings peace to all who may need it with renewed faith in the Love that lies deep within.

Until next time…

  1. Thank you for posting this. I just ran across a YouTube video of Doreen Virtue denouncing all things metaphysical and I was shocked and surprised. I thought it must be a different “Doreen Virtue” until I read about her conversion. I love your message to hold her in light and not to judge, since we can never know what goes on in the heart of another, and to follow our own inner guidance.

    1. I love your heart of non-judgment, Theresa. So true that we never know what’s going on in the inner world of others…even our loved ones at times.
      Thank you for sharing and I’m so glad this message helped.

  2. I honestly think she was threatened by a church. and the fact she WORKS with ANGELS and the churches work with ANGELS it makes no sense why she had to quit doing the things she believed in. it comes off as unstable in her own faith. it comes off as someone threatened her life so she would convert to their religion. it sounds like she had no choice and the fact she is back in a faith she felt so strongly before that was suffocating makes me wonder and worry for her sanity

    1. Thank you for sharing! I look at it as one of those situations that’s hard to reconcile…meaning, what makes sense logically versus what makes sense in the heart are two different things. I also see it as something that can give us the opportunity to look at our own feelings and relationship with religion, belief in God and the angels, and our connection to Source – when we’re comfortable with those things, other people’s choices don’t really matter. I pray that makes sense.
      Blessings to YOU,

  3. @Faith-I totally agree with u! Without the intention of sounding judgemental, bc I try my best never to judge anyone, regardless of their faith or belief systems, I have had a lifetime of experiences with those who have decided to become “born again Christians”, those who were raised strictly Christian (and live each day strictly by the bible) and those who suddenly decide to raise their kids by the bible (UGH these POOR Kids!! This is not a judglement, but it’s actually emotional ABUSE to raise one’s kids to live with guilt if they dont follow the bible, bc GOD LOVES US ALL, REGARDLESS of how we live our lives and REGARDLESS of mistakes we make) . Every single “Christian” and “Born again Christian” I’ve ever met, has turned out to be someone who lacks self love and lacks their OWN belief system. Every Christian and Born again Christian I have EVER met, has used (and is using) the whole “Christian/Bible verse belief system” as either a substitute for an addiction they are trying to stop (whether the addiction is drinking, eating, smoking, sex, gambling or any other addiction one can develop) , and/or they are using the Christain/Bible thing as a way to feel some sort of control in their life bc they feel so “out of control” of their lives. Regardless of the reasons these “Christian” and “Born Again Christian” types have jumped into and have become OBSESSED with Christianity, these types of ppl are always what I describe as “lost souls”…ppl who lack self love, ppl who feel continually guilty about who they are and what they do on a daily basis (when God is our creator and does NOT judge us for making mistakes!) I had no idea that Doreen had denounced her entire belief system and suddenly became a “Christian”. This is so odd to me!!!

    1. Thank you so much for your sharing, Kimberly! I pray you and your loved ones are healthy and feeling the grace of the angels!

  4. I just listened to her predictions for the 2017 year as I remembered her saying about tanks on American soil with martial law and rioting as I am watching the protests about George Floyd. And it hit me that maybe Doreen could see how crazy things have gotten in the past years and needed to protect herself.

    1. It’s certainly possible that’s a part of it, Laura. I appreciate you sharing a broadening perspective!
      The lesson that feels highlighted for me in all this is to not assume what another person’s experience is and/or their motives for doing whatever it is that they do. Meaning…we’ll never really know. Good to take the viewpoint that there was a lot more going on in her heart than we may know. Love that you’re doing that!

  5. It really hit me hard. In a world where trust in these topics is so thin, something such as a change in that magnitude… I just can’t…

    I’m not trusting anyone anymore. I will just trust that the Great Holy Spirit of all will guide us to ultimate truth… eventually

    I’m sick of this world of lies, especially in regards to spiritual topics. My strongest prayers, directed to the ultimate phenomenon of Spirit, are mostly for truth to prevail. ITS truth, OUR truth, EVERYTHING’S truth

    I’ve been heartbroken before for seeing the huge divergence all over the world… but this is the drop that spilled the glass. I will just try to walk my own path, trying to trust The Divine every step and experience, begging for the right understanding

    I just hope these specific cracks in my heart regarding spiritual topics can heal in time…

    1. It’s a really challenging time and there is a lot of pain in the world. I get it! I find that when I focus on how I can serve and help – even if it feels like a drop in the bucket – that keeps my heart uplifted and clear. I love that you’re determined to walk your path and intending to trust as best you can. May your heart be healed…

  6. I am so blessed to see this post, Elvia.
    Thank you for showing such a delightful spirit.
    I did feel betrayed when she made the announcement, but in my heart and experience know that Angels have been so many good things for me and that will not change.
    You are a light. Thank you.


  7. This is so terribly sad. Doreen definitely needs love and light as she struggles with forces that are winning over her solid foundation of a beautiful and extensive lifelong connection to angels. To go from being the world’s foremost expert on this etheric realm to denouncing every aspect of it is a giant red flag. It is my sincere hope that she regains her footing and determines for herself where she truly stands and fits in this world. People who bring big things to the planet often have big obstacles to overcome throughout their lives. These obstacles can propel them forward or they can suffocate and stagnate and defeat them. I believe Doreen is out of balance with herself and pray she regains the strength she needs to combat the forces that seek to extinguish her bright light. There has never been a more positive person so full of great wisdom and angelic love with whom I have come into contact. I pray for her heart and her soul to be clear and at peace. I pray that she reconnects with her true self and life purpose which has enhanced the lives of so many and can do so still. Now more than ever we need earth angels and crystal children and every beautiful and powerful connection we can have with the many extraordinary unseen energies that undoubtedly surround us. And we need experts like Doreen to continue to act as guiding lights as we transition to the new age for which we have been waiting many centuries. Now is the time to align with the angels and ascended masters and to ward off the ugly, negative forces that may be transmuted with pure intentions and directed love.

    1. Beautifully said, Rya. I can feel your pure heart and good intentions here. Thank you so much for sharing!
      Blessings, Elvia

  8. Thank you so much for your beautiful message!!
    I pray for her. I don’t know what has happened in her life! It give me peace of mind that the angels are always there to help.
    Me too she help me during a difficult time in my life and having someone like her so gentle confirming what I knew all along of the existence of the Angels and learning how to communicate with them it has enriched my life!!
    I give thanks to God for giving us the Angels and Arcangels!!
    In the Bible the Angels are mentioned 365 times and more!
    Love & Blessings ♥️🙏

  9. I was introduced to Doreen Virtue back in the eighties, I studied her books, thought seriously about taking her class. I went on a weekend workshop, a prerequisite to enrolling and became aware my internal alarms were activated when a group of potential students were triggered emotionally all the while their were minimal staff present to intercede if necessary. My inner guidance stated this particular teacher was not the right match for me. I then met Linda Chagnon who eventually became a mentor to me. I had asked God to provide someone of integrity who could open me up to higher truths, inner wisdom, spiritual growth.

  10. Thank you for sharing, Joanne! It’s so essential to stay close to that inner guidance 100% – even when, especially when, others may feel differently and have other experiences. I’m so glad you’ve found what you need on your spiritual journey! 😇
    With love,

  11. Hi Elvia. I’d visited your blog to read your latest blog post and then my eyes fell on this one about Doreen Virtue.

    I remember how surprised I was when she denounced her association with the Angels. I’m a Hindu and believe I have a direct connection with God and Source so in a way I understand her desire to have direct communication.

    Funnily enough, I was introduced to the role of angels and Doreen Virtue in 2015 2 weeks before my beloved pet Miss Coco had her hind-leg paralysis incident and her window for recovery was closing and the vet was suggesting wheels. I called out to Archangel Michael for help which arrived in the form of a second opinion from another vet and searching YouTube for physiotherapy videos for dogs with the condition Miss Coco had.

    My little girl stood up on her legs the night before my birthday and after 2 months of therapy not only walked but also chased the birds in the garden until she left for Heaven in January 2021. I’ve even gone as far as to mention the role of the Angels in her recovery and in coping with grief during the pandemic in a Kindle book I wrote about Miss Coco as a tribute.

    I wouldn’t judge Ms Virtue on her decisions because we all have our own journeys. For all we know, this is part of her journey to create a deeper connection with God.

    1. Thank you, Vatsala, for sharing your wisdom. I so agree that Doreen’s path may well be what she needs for that deeper connection. Not for us to decide that…as you say, we all have our own journeys.

      Wonderful story about your sweet Miss Coco. 😇
      Blessings to you! 💜

  12. I had a similar message from my Angel guide in 2015. My interpretation is different. I had been a reader for over 20 years. I never paid much attention to any particular teacher. So I just happened to run across this news around 2019.
    My message was to stop reading and close down my channeling into the Astral because it was getting infiltrated and very filthly with dark energies and etc.
    Stay in connection with what you know and trust on the higher divine wavelength.
    I understood and actually went against this advise in 2020 to literally be attacked.
    So I believe wholeheartedly in this message now and that there is truth in that message because of the spiritual battle we are in the midst of. I have many messages.
    I have written two books but keep a low profile. I am happy to discuss this with anyone who finds this interesting.
    Blessings to all,
