Fawn’s Meditation on Doreen Virtue

by Fawn, contributing writer for Angel Messenger

I received this thought process during a meditation about Doreen Virtue:

Feel solid in your faith, and no person who changes their own faith can take yours away.
She is human. She is experiencing her own journey of spiritual growth, and on whatever meaningful and powerful path her soul, and the Divine Source have decided to take her. She is genuine, even in her abandonment of what she once dedicated her time and focus on. Her immersion into Angels and New Age has been so intensely whole, that her soul longs to feel a contrast. Her lesson is sacred, as is yours and mine. She is experiencing what it feels like to be in an organized, Christian religion, and some people have chosen to experience this transformation, with her.

Loving and following Jesus Christ, and placing her faith in only Biblical teachings, is part of her soul’s chosen experience. She has chosen to know the entirety of what this teaches, with both belief, and in practice. The experience of an organized Christian discipline, is no less vital for her soul to know and experience, than for anyone else to experience this. Christ is a beautiful connection to know, and whether she chooses to discard everything but the Biblical interpretation of Christ, and embrace this belief system for the rest of her life, or whether she shifts at some point in time, to integrate her entire life experience back into a new practice, is a choice only her soul will decide on. She has her own lessons to learn and spiritual path to follow, just like us all.

Instead of putting faith in a connection to another human, I remain content in my connection to the Divine Source. Faith in this connection is what feeds me during times of doubt and fear, not dependence on another human, a deity, a dogma, a ritualistic practice or an obvious indoctrination, but instead, a personal connection to Source.  Every soul can choose to learn discernment of energies; yin/yang, lux in Tenebrism, lightness in darkness. And if the chosen path is contrary to what others expect of us, and if the belief is held this path is the only true path, the choice to take it is still spiritually valid.

In order to fully experience the expression of a particular spirituality or chosen ritualistic practice, a soul needs to have the freedom to explore and to experience the fullness of that system of faith. Doreen has publicly made a decision to do this. Christ is a loving benevolent, tolerant, faith healer, in my knowing of being connected with him. The Christ I feel a relationship with, taught me how to pray as a child and is part of the fabric on my spiritual life. I appreciate and honor the energy of Christ. I found a sacred Christ connection long before encountering the indoctrination and dogma of what and how I ‘should” believe in him. I had this connection before and after my Christian, only, path. I was baptized as a teenager, in a Pentecostal Holiness church in Kentucky and placed faith only in the scripture of the Bible at that time. Later still, I embraced the full experience of myself before, during, and after that choice. I claimed it all, Christ and all.

Doreen has chosen to love Christ, the Biblical interpretation of Christ, and to walk this path, for now, This to me, does not feel like abandonment. I did not, and do not, place my spiritual connection in the hands of any human, even Doreen, or concern myself over her judgments about my spirituality. I encourage those who feel personally hurt over her decision to exclude new age practices from her current life path, to allow her circumstance to become a perfect opportunity to experience your own, personal faith, and to follow the flow of what this spiritual experience is teaching you.

To know the power of discernment, and best of all, to claim your own truth rather than basing your belief system on spiritual choices of others, is the key to freedom. Claim your holy experiences, all the miracles and answered prayers that have happened to you, the prophetic and healing dreams, the energy you sense in animals and trees, the spiritual connection that you know. Keep your Faith.

When a teacher chooses a different sacred path, this change can only threaten your spiritual peace, if you doubt your own path and truth. Maybe, choose to experience no fear in loving Christ and connecting to this sacred Being, in your own way? The same way you would pray to Goddess, connect with Angels, Ganesh, Gaia, God, and to your guides and power animals, you can connect to Christ.

Claim each spiritual experience you encounter, as a truth you decide to place faith in because it adds to a solid foundation representing your core . . . your center of faith.

I Send Doreen love and forgiveness, acceptance and honor. I choose to send thanks to the beauty of her divine connectedness to Source, whatever that form takes, and to bless our mutual life lessons, including her unique and beautiful contribution to life’s spiritual evolution.

Shamanic readings are unique in that they focus on spiritual healing and resolution. Often physical symptoms accompany a need for spiritual healing, because everything is connected. Fawn will journey by drum prior to your connection by Skype, phone and/or email and ask a question you send to her in advance. She will usually connect up with your power animal right away, and then bring back for you any message that spirit gives her for you to hear. Often she will receive a time frame but sometimes not. The information comes in on a 'need to know" basis.

"I can't say enough about Fawn. After over a year of speaking with her, she is truly gifted. I admire the way she guides me; telling me about my path and the road "blocks", always keeping the conversation positive. I don't feel alarmed or worried after our time together. I'm eager for what's to come and aware of what is surrounding me. Thank you!"

    Around the same time Doreen virtue started bashing the new age community, my friend and angel healing mentor who was personally trained by Doreen. She began putting me down, throwing words like “blasphemy” ” your psychic powers are evil and demonic and not allowed by God”. She then claimed that only special people such as her were chosen by God and blessed with psychic powers. She claimed that even after 30 years of studying I would always be beneath her and never be a healer or a success at anything. She tried to swindle me into paying her thousands of dollars to give up my psychic powers and healing abilities. She started claiming that everything that went wrong with her life was everyone else’s demons attacking her. She continued to project onto people and give inaccurate readings. She seemed to be obsessed with Doreen and began exhibiting fanatic behavior. I walked away and felt so sad. I finally healed from this spiritual betrayal. I have been slowly reaching out again , I wish my innocence would return .

      Dear Red Hen, I’m so sad to hear that you had this experience. The way I look at reading cards myself is that it has nothing to do with new age. However, my experience with a few of Doreen’s trainees is they are battling the ego (not all – some). I also know some trained by Doreen that are very good people.

      The way I see reading cards is that they are an extension of Spirit as Spirit is in everything. My ancestors (Native American and Romani “Gypsy”) are very gifted in seeing signs from the Creator. You do not need to spend thousands of dollars to someone with a huge ego to make you worthy enough to speak with God. God is ALWAYS available to EVERYONE. This is what I teach and is the SOUL of my work.

      It truly breaks my heart that people are out there hurting others like this. Those people have their own journey … and their own karma to balance. I’m glad you backed away. Good for you!

      Clearly, that is not your path. I too would feel that as a spiritual betrayal. I have felt deep deceit at work in the spiritual realm, and it’s probably because there are many True Lightworkers here right now. Please don’t let this weigh on your heart anymore. It’s not your burden or your journey. You were right not to see it as Truth.

      The free online angel card readings we offer here have descriptions that were written by myself and my friends/colleagues. The descriptions are how we related to the cards, and the point was to help others look at the cards in a different way … not just Doreen’s descriptions, but the personal message Spirit was sending to you through the card because Spirit can speak something different than what the author wrote and often does.

      People often asked me how I saw what I saw in readings, so it was an effort on a grand scale to show people how. I hope you will use this site and help yourself to gain your own clear voice with Spirit again. You don’t have to be someone special to talk with Spirit. Yes, some may have a natural gift. However, those who talk like that friend are those we should all run from. They don’t walk with Spirit but ego, and ego blocks the voice of Heaven.

      I hope this helps. <3

    Few years ago, when I found out that this beautiful soul called Doreen Virtue has chosen to follow another path I asked the Archangel Michael’s Oracle Cards about this situation, and the answer was “Innocence”.

    (I guess her cards will be useful to us as long as we need them. When they are no longer needed, they will disappear.)

    Be blessed

    • Re (Rev. Sheri)
      Re (Rev. Sheri) says:

      Thank you George. There are so many oracle cards available as Doreen is not the only creator of them, though her cards may eventually stop being created. She is on a path of discovery for sure, and everyone must be allowed that journey. Luckily? … I took the religious path early in life … and don’t need to take that path again … lol. However, we should all have respect for and honor Doreen’s journey.

      As for oracle cards, they are not evil. We have gotten many people writing in asking this question, so maybe this is a good place to address that for now. I may make some videos or something in the near future. Blessings to all those on the journey. <3 And Happy New Year! 🙂

        I do keep using Doreen’s cards (I have both the Angels and Ascended Masters sets) and I can assure everyone reading this post that the divine guidance is accurate and… still absolutely divine!

        • Re (Rev. Sheri)
          Re (Rev. Sheri) says:

          Cards are simply a tool, like a fork or anything else. It is our intention that creates. If our intention is Divine, then our work is Divine. 😉

          It does make me sad that Doreen felt badly or still feels badly about her work, but I bet her journey will come full circle in the end.

    I have spoken with the fairies about what happened to Doreen, and this is what they told me:
    “Doreen is experiencing her dark night of the soul, but she was not aware of that, we initiated contact with herin order to help her”.
    If you all remember, a little time before her conversion she was in contact with the fairies and she also created the fairyologist course!
    And whoever has experienced the dark night of the soul and has gotten out of it, knows how difficult and frustrating it is.
    So let’s have some understanding about her and be grateful for what she has offered to the whole humanity!

    • Re (Rev. Sheri)
      Re (Rev. Sheri) says:

      I have thought this also, Stergios, that she is experiencing a dark night of the soul … going down the spiral to find her truest authentic self. I do hope that she comes full circle finding her Truth, and that one day she will see the contribution she has made to humanity. <3

  4. Loretta
    Loretta says:

    I struggled for many, many months, close to two years really, with Doreen’s conversion. I felt completely abandoned spiritually and felt so alone and isolated for a long time. I go to her website on occasion and see how she has vilified everything that she believed AND taught for so many years to so many of us who trusted and followed her. As she progressed with her weekly angel readings, I tried so hard to go with her guidance and I got to the point where I knew I could no longer follow her. I was spiritually bereft and still struggle with it but it’s getting better. I doubt I will ever blindly follow any teacher ever again, including and religious teacher, including Jesus and that breaks my heart because I want to believe, and I want to unconditionally love God but it’s very difficult now. It was never the money I spent on Doreen’s books or decks or whatever she was selling at the time. It was the spiritual betrayal that guts my heart that I have a hard time healing and Doreen will have to answer for that to her God one day.

      Loretta, thank you for sharing your feelings about this. The shift has been very significant to so many people, and I imagine sharing your journey through these changes helps others who read it.

    • Stergios Loukos
      Stergios Loukos says:

      There is no need to follow blindly any person. Each person can be spreading light or fear, no matter of what he officially represents or of what he says he is…
      Our lesson is to be able to discriminate behind the obvious, beyond any title,
      There are still good teachers out there that would not betray you.
      And Christ / God / Angels will never betray you, you need to see clearly what they are, the connection between you and them is unique, you don’t need someone to be doing this for you all the time.

    • Re (Rev. Sheri)
      Re (Rev. Sheri) says:

      Many people have felt this way, Loretta, and Fawn is correct that sharing your feelings will help others who have felt the same. I learned a long time ago not to put my faith in “people”, but I still felt it myself. Doreen was a leader in the industry, telling us all that it’s safe to come out of the spiritual closet, and then she went all old school puritan on us.

      But, there will not be villagers with pitchforks this time. They are not going to burn us at the stake for daring to think outside the box. Stergios is correct, we should never ever blindly follow any person. We can have those who inspire us for sure, and Doreen was that for many – myself included. However, we have to be prepared when those people fall that we don’t lose our own footing. We have to make sure that we are standing on solid ground ourselves, and the only way to do that is to build your own spirituality within. Build your own deep and powerful spiritual relationship with God, Goddess, Jesus, whomever you feel a deep and powerful connection to … who makes you feel connected to your spiritual center? Who makes you feel whole? That deep down connection to the Divine Truth within yourself is a Beauty and a Truth that will never betray you, but it is a connection that must be developed by looking within. I hope this helps. I’m so sorry that you were hurt by what happened. May peace be with you. <3
