Doreen Virtue Biography, Articles, Cards & Products
As well as writing over 50 books on the subject of angels and a variety of topics related to the mind, body and spirit, she has produced a collection of oracle card decks. She also conducts workshops around the world and hosts a call-in online radio show on Hay House Radio.
Thanks to her impressive status, she is a frequent guest on talk shows such as Oprah, CNN, Good Morning America and The View. She also finds time to be a columnist for publications including Woman’s Day, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Daily News and The Boston Globe.
Despite her clarity of purpose now, things were not always so straightforward for Dr Virtue. As a youngster, she displayed natural clairvoyant abilities, but this was little understood by either her or her family. It also caused her friends to tease her. Because of this, she denied her gift and she didn’t embrace it again until she was an adult.
Everything changed for Dr Virtue on 15th July 1995. She was still ignoring her angels’ guidance, so when she was warned by an angel that later that day her car would be stolen, she paid little attention. However, as she pulled up to park her vehicle, two men carrying weapons physically accosted her in an attempt to take her vehicle. Once again, she heard the voice and this time it instructed her to scream loudly. On this occasion, she listened and her cries alerted passersby, who caused the attackers to flee.
After this, she re-examined her beliefs about spirituality and started looking at psychology in a completely different way. Her natural clairvoyant abilities quickly returned and her practice transformed into Angel Therapy, which uses her knowledge and skills in the field of psychology as well as her strong spiritual talents.
Because there are so many, it is hard to choose Dr Virtue’s key books. However, it’s impossible to overlook Angel Therapy: Healing Messages for Every Area of Your Life. Published in 1997, it covers how the angelic guidance Dr Virtue was given directed her work as a psychotherapist. In the book, she delivers messages of comfort and guidance that are designed to help readers with difficult emotions, such as depression, confusion, boredom and anger.
Another of her major works is The Miracles of Archangel Michael. Published in 2008, it focuses on the Archangel Michael, who is seen as a protective figure and as a friend to all who ask. In the book, Dr Virtue teaches the ways in which Michael brings harmony to people. She also tells readers how to contact the angel and how to work with him to provide both emotional and physical healing.
A third seminal tome is The Angel Therapy Handbook, which was published in 2011. This provides readers with the tools and exercises she has used while teaching her Angel Therapy Practitioner course over the last 14 years. It is designed for professional healers as well as amateurs who simply want to enhance their natural spiritual gifts.
