Prayers for You

An Update on Doreen’s Changes

Hi Dear Friend,

So many changes have happened since I last wrote to you. As you may know, I had a life-changing vision of Jesus on January 7, 2017 that caused me to walk away from the new age. I wrote about this experience in my new book, The Joy of Jesus, which is available as a free download at bit.ly/TheJoyofJesus and as a paperback at https://amzn.to/2vqPBDW

I want you to know that I have never been happier, felt more free, or been more peaceful than now. Jesus truly offers us the answers that we are seeking! He heals and fills up our heart in a way that no person or activity can do.

So I wanted to update you on some of the latest, and let you know that you can contact me directly at Instagram.com/DoreenVirtue with any questions or prayer requests.

Here’s a list of some of the changes:

– I’m no longer an author or radio host with Hay House. They have been great about taking my name off of some of the New Age materials. They also printed some publications that I was working on prior to us parting ways, such as the Love and Light Cards which have scripture, the Saints & Angels book, and an upcoming calendar that has a new age sounding title, but is scriptural inside.

– Michael, my parents, and I moved away from the ranch and now live in the Pacific Northwest. The story of this heartbreaking change is in my new book. We were able to take the dogs and cats, but the farm animals couldn’t travel, so they were all rehomed. Here’s a link to download my new book for free. It’s at bit.ly/TheJoyofJesus

– Unfortunately, I can’t get my old New Age material out of print. A lot of it is old books and cards that are still circulating. Plus the foreign rights were sold on my products, and I don’t have the ability to control these items or their websites. In the US, some of my old products will go out of print, and my name has been removed from tarot cards and some other new age products.

– The money from the old new age materials is distributed in a combination of charity, paying off my back taxes, and supporting my volunteer work.

– After reading the whole Bible, I now understand that God wants us to go directly to him for answers and guidance. He does not want us to do any psychic work. As a result, I do not do any readings or use cards or other divination tools anymore.

– When I get a vision or intuition, I go directly to God and the Bible to make sure that it is a message from the Holy Spirit and not from a demon.

– Here is an article with answers to frequently asked questions: http://www.doreenvirtue.com/2018/07/05/frequently-asked-questions/

– My name is also coming off of my old New Age apps, and the money from those apps is being donated to a homeless shelter. I do have a new biblical app called God’s Calming Promises. You can try this new app for free by clicking here, to see if you like it.

– I’ve also stopped working for Woman’s World magazine.

– I threw away all of my old new age books, cards, artwork, etc., and immediately noticed a beautiful lightness in my home and in myself. This also helped to reduce the spiritual warfare.

– I spend most of my time now doing volunteer work, which is so fulfilling. I found that you can meet the nicest, most generous and genuine people, at volunteer activities. If you want to meet giving friends, and make a positive difference in the world, sign up to do volunteer work.

Regarding angels, I am now convinced that the Bible is 100% true and accurate. The Bible has The Angel of the Lord, the angel Gabriel and the Archangel Michael, and also Cherubim and Seraphim. The Bible is filled with references to the angels. But nowhere in the Bible does it say we should call on angels. It only says that we should pray to God and he sends us angels.

We have to wait for God to send his angels, if that’s his will. But he has so many ways of helping us, in addition to angels. The Bible is very clear (especially in the book of Hebrews) that Jesus is above the angels. We are not to pray to or worship anyone but the Holy Trinity. So I no longer call on angels, especially since discovering that demons often disguise themselves as angels.

For more information about angels, please read my new book. Here’s a link to download my new book for free. It’s at bit.ly/TheJoyofJesus You’re welcome to join me for my video broadcasts:

– Daily at 6:30 pm Pacific time on Instagram.com/doreenvirtue during 2018. You will see the live broadcast at the top of the Instagram page, where there’s a circle with my picture inside of it. If you can’t make the live broadcast, you can watch the video later on Instagram, by clicking on the circle.

– The videos are also stored at Vimeo.com/Doreenvirtue. These talks are about the daily reading of the One Year Bible NLT, which you can buy on Amazon or any bookstore.

– Daily podcasts about the One Year Bible are on iTunes. Just search for Doreen Virtue in the iTunes podcast store, and you’ll find the podcasts there.

– Every Saturday at 6 pm Pacific on my Facebook.com/Doreenvirtue444 page. These broadcasts are a brief talk, followed by a prayer.

As the world seems to grow crazier and colder each day, it’s such a comfort to know that Jesus is holding his hand out to you and to everyone on this planet. He loves you! My prayer is that you will answer Jesus’s call, and follow him.

Love,
Doreen

  1. Doreen, I used to follow you a lot and even took your angelic card reading certification. But, like you, I also had an encounter with Jesus in the middle of 2017, which steered me away from the new age. I just recently looked up your website again and am delighted to know that you are also within Jesus. Thank you for sharing that you threw away all the cards and the books that are related to the new age. I will do the same. Thank you Doreen for always being my inspiration.

  2. Miss Doreen, What an amazing story. For many, many years I have studied spiritually, philosophy, psychology, ethics, religions of the world and everything in between… lol. I have read at least a half dozen of your books. I understand you. During my quest for knowledge and “answers” one thing never ever changes and that is my belief in Jesus Christ and his beautiful messages! I have witnessed miracles great and small and have absolute faith. We truly are the happiest when helping other and “paying it forward.” Keep up the great work you do and never feel guilty or ashamed for your passed writing or ponders. Sincerely Your Friend Tricia

  3. Thank you Doreen… I have downloaded you book and can’t wait to read it… I am trying to read the bible daily.. 🙏

  4. We are all connected and walking each other home, Jesus saves! Happy to be included in your journey thanks for sharing in your new book. Bless you!

  5. I love the updates you give I’ve been following you for a long time and I feel like I’m learning through you and for that I thank you so much.

  6. Your book was a great read. I just loved it. What I think when I see you share about your old material is that ‘God makes good out of bad’. It is in His hands now. Satan used your personality before to lead you away from God, and now that you’re Gods child, He is using your personality and standing in society to make an impact. And that, you are.
    I love you and appreciate all that you do. You look beautiful and feel beautiful.
    God bless you and everything and everyone you touch.
    Sincerely,
    Jeanna😊

  7. It’s very comforting to read your updates because I am going through the same process. I am sort of tagging along and very happy to do so, because I feel I am not the only one breaking away from a world of spiritual confusion.
    It certainly is not easy as I am going through a lot of spiritual warfare, a lot! But I find comfort and strength in Jesus and really need Him more than ever.
    I just downloaded your new app and am looking forward to use it. I also downloaded the book and I got Mornings with the Lord on my phone as well. Very inspirational~! God bless you and keep you safe!

  8. Hi Doreen! I have read many of your books. I was pulled out of the new age around the same time as you, as was a friend of mine! I was surprised and thrilled to read your testimony. I too feel better than I have in a long time. I was bogged down with evil spirits that had attached themselves to me through the new age. What a journey it’s been! Keep up the great work, spreading the love of Jesus. ♥

  9. What a lovely update and I am so pleased to hear your story; I will indeed read your book and thank you for making it available.
    It seems many people now are searching and coming home to Jesus…your past life and your earlier work was all done with good intentions and all part of your search for the truth. I too had a similar journey with Reiki and healing and angels before I “accidentally” came across Joyce Meyer here in the uk on TBN UK. Her powerful words just hit the spot and now I am happy to say that I am moving through the “nothing but love and light ” stage to the realization that it is all God and Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
    God bless you, Doreen and also your family, as you move forward in your walk with Jesus xxxxxxxx

  10. Doreen,
    I am so glad to hear that you are happy. I completely concur with you about getting rid of all things New Age. Since I threw all of my stuff out, the energy has been different. Much calmer, and much less spiritual warfare. The other thing is that now I go to one source, God, for answers; not multiple books, tarot decks, or other things. Just one the Bible and God. Now I read teaching materials on the Bible and God but that’s not the same thing. Everything I do is to gain a better understanding of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
    Much love,
    Pamela

  11. I’ve been on such an amazing journey with you. Before I was saved, i had every deck of your tarot cards & practiced them. I had a life changing experience with Jesus in 2016, & my life changed as I became a believer. I got rid of tarot & everything to do with it henceforth. I stumbled upon a website in the latter half of 2017 & was so amazed at ur encounter with Jesus in 2017. Made me realise he’s so faithful no matter what our journeys have been Xx

  12. Hello Dear Doreen,

    I miss YOU very much, and I did not know Why I get more emails from you. That YOU have a lot of problems in past time,I find terrible.
    I’m so glad you’re lucky now !

    Wishing YOU the Best and a great BLESSINGS !!!

  13. Doreen I really believe that everything you did before in your life was not done in vain or I’ll intent. It was all necessary to bring you to this new understanding of Jesus being the true Messiah. You had a great many followers before, which I believe was also necessary, because now they can be further led to the Lord Jesus through your arrival to the only one who can only fill our emptiness. Nothing or no one else can. Your truth and sincerity in wanting to truely help others has unfolded into something wonderful and beautiful. You are a true inspiration to so many. May God continue to bless and your family and in all that you do, share and care. I love you and thank you Doreen. The world is a better place by your being here now in this time when there are so many forces and influences trying to mislead so many. Praise be to God.

  14. Doreen i am happy you are waliking with Jesus.. i also stopped doing physic reading and now i speak directly to Jesus. . My family and I love to go to sunday mass.. i have a commitment with God to prove his loving work.. my faith is completely on him

  15. I have been an angel therapist for a long time but in 2012 God gave me an urgent message to get rid of it . I have followed your teachings so long and then I prayed for you after that to help you find your way to Jesus. And it happened I thank God for this and yes he still there and does send angels for us.

  16. Thank you Doreen, you are an inspiration!
    God bless the insight you spread, followed you before and now more than ever ♡
    I haven’t touched my cards, runes and I Ching coins in years but haven’t disposed of them. It’s hard because they are enbedded in me, it’s a unique collection but you are helping me because reading this just now made me realize that they are truly useless.
    All we need is His love and guidance, in Jesus name!
    It is an honor to follow your transformation and see my own unfold ♡ Amen!!

  17. Thank you for this update xo!

    I have read the Joy of Jesus nearly twice now! It illuminates and informs on so many important realities. It is a brilliant piece of fruit for the Kingdom of God! My heart also goes out to you for all you have overcome through Christ Jesus who NEVER leaves or forsakes us. You are a very strong and incredible woman and I deeply respect you. I know all glory goes to God through the times like the ones you have been through.

    And I just want to tell you about the little healing miracle God did through you for me.

    You see, I found your instagram page during the last 2 1/2, maybe 3 years of your time in the New Age. And during this time I was being indoctrinated and mentored by people in the New Age (not you, you were like my refuge from them) who found a way to use the Bible and Jesus to convince me I was unlovable and worthless. And not having a strong relationship with either part of God made this possible for them to do. In short, the enemy was desperate to shut all the doors to God in my life before I even knew how to open them!

    Then, something miraculous happened. You started to infuse the weekly oracle card readings with Scripture which allowed me to associate the Bible with light. And the locks and chains the enemy placed on the doors to God began to shake. Then you gently started to suggest getting a Bible. And for weeks you would make this same suggestion and I would wince and shake my head thinking, no thanks. And then one night, you looked at the camera as if you had had enough and on some level COMMANDED me to buy a Bible. The Lord had had enough of something in my life and in that moment used you and the trust within the relationship following you had birthed to make a shift in my life. I remember the moment so vividly because I felt something break off of my heart and I couldn’t get to amazon.com fast enough to purchase a Bible. Shortly after Jesus saved me.

    And I believe Holy Spirit was working through you in those last months of your weekly card readings. Not just for me, but for many others, I hope. Yes it was the Holy Spirit and no one and nothing will ever convince me otherwise.

    So it’s not really possible for me to feel as if you did me any harm in the New Age. And I just want you to know that. Not all people may share my sentiment but I’ve been wanting to tell you for so long. When God took you out of the world, I went with you. In the same direction (Jesus) and for a while in seperate ways (spiritual warfare is very real) , but I want you to know that I because of you I have a relationship with Jesus. And I will never be able to thank you enough for this.

    I also want to thank you for refunding all of my donations to your animal rescue. You didn’t have to do that. You led me back to the Bible which led me to Jesus after the enemy used both to condemn my existence. However I was grateful to see them come in- just a testimony to Gods’s timing! I would see them and think “Oh Doreen, you don’t have to do this!” But in the scheme of things, it was perfect timing so THANK YOU for doing that. But I would have been fine without them. I owe so much good in my life to you!

    LOTS OF LOVE AND PRAYERS for you and yours.
    Please tell Michael I said hello and thank you. He helped to.
    And may God continue to bless you in heart, body, and mind dear Sister.

    1. I just recently learned of Doreen’s conversion to Jesus, and while I thought it was a synchronicity with my own further interest, I also feel like this is a huge change and I have many questions. I started exploring the New Age years ago though I didn’t name it that, I just knew what my interests were and always had good intentions with them. It’s kind of difficult to feel like this was all wrong or even sinful. Not sure how others deal with such a huge change, seems many accept right away.And not sure how to deal with all that right now, but a gentle transition feels right.

      1. I appreciate how honest your comments are, Claudiae! The beautiful thing about our God is that He allows room for and understands our doubts. Most often, those journeys of working our way through challenges or doubts God uses to reveal a new side of Himself to us that we previously didn’t understand. I think “a gentle transition” is totally cool with God. 🙂 Ask Him to be ever near as you journey & to reveal His truths to you – and He will, most likely on a timetable He’s already designed for you. It’s those times in my life I approach the end of one journey, look back, and can clearly see God’s plan and how it played out, though I was quite bewildered and lost at the time. It is very reassuring to accept that you can simultaneously fully trust God and also be unsure of and uncomfortable with the answers you seek. That’s why it’s called “faith”. 🙂 Begin with constant awareness of God’s presence (aka prayer), reading the Bible, and clinging to those things you DO know to be true: #1: God loves you and is gracious, merciful, and good. (And I agree, God does see intentions of the heart if you previously thought you were doing good. But as God reveals new truths to us, it is then our responsibility to seek to understand and change.) Praying God rains down His Holy Spirit on you, saturating your heart, soul, mind, and strength with His loving comfort, peace, hope, joy, love, and truth. <3 (And – I'm sure many posters here – myself included – would be happy to hear and explore your questions if you would like to share.)

  18. Doreen, may you continue to inspire many others through your bold and courageous transition from New Age to Christianity, just as you have inspired me. I had been considering giving it all up myself, on & off for a few years. And when I finally decided to take the plunge this March 2018, your testimony was such an encouragement to me. And I know it will lead many others to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ and accept him as Lord & Saviour over every area of their lives. So many wonderful things have happened as a result of my decision to walk away from the enemy’ deception. (Praise God!🙏🏻)

    Love & Best Wishes,

  19. Dear Doreen, I started reading the Bible the beginning of this year. As of today I am reading Acts. At times the stories are so touching I cry with love (like Job) it just touched my heart. Then there can a time when I felt so angry and became depressed and almost stopped wanting to continue reading the Bible I could not understand why, then I prayed and realized I was being attacked by evil. Once I realized that, I was not going to let that happen.
    I have many of your books,cards and more stuff. I have been to see you when you can to San Francisco.
    It will be hard to toss all the books and all, but I will.
    Since I have been reading the Bible, I have found that I feel a closeness to Jesus.
    I smoke and I am always praying for God’s help in quiting. I struggle but smoking less.
    I would love to ask you to include me in your prayers to help me quit. I want to feel closer to God and Jesus and feel worthy of there Love.
    Thank you and so glad to hear you talk about your Love for Jesus and all the wonderful things he does for us.
    I pray for you and your family and all your animals friends.
    Thank you!
    God bless you for all your doing!

  20. Dear Doreen Virtue,

    Thank YOU for sharing your expirience with us , and what has happened lately in your life. I thing that’s terrible. I miss you messagers via my e-mail very much.
    You help people in the World, you helpend me a lot, for which I am very, very grateful to you Darling.
    I read every morning the Book “Mornings With the Lord”.
    There are a lot of tips or advice for me, and I’m very grateful to You Doreen.

    I’m really glad that you have happiness fund in you Life !!!

    I wisch You the Best and a great Blessings !

  21. Dear Doreen,
    Thank you for sharing everything that’s happened to you with all of us who followed your work before these changes and continue to do so now even more. I just wanted to notice the date of your vision is the date of Orthodox Christmas. 🙂 (not that it bares any significance, but I found it interesting)
    God bless 🙏

  22. I feel very happy for your explanation. I follow you for more than ten years and I am happy that you keep up the great work on Jesus.
    Lots of love ❤️

  23. Thank you! I’ve been following you a long a time now, even took your first CACR course online with Radleigh. I was sad and shocked when you left New Age, and I had wished you well on your new path, but God had other plans for me, and because of you, I was led back to Jesus like the lost sheep that I was! I was in the New Age for 23 years. I grew up Christian but never read the Bible. I read it every day now. I still can’t bring myself to throw away all my books and cards as I have around 100 decks! I know I will get there in time. I hope God can help me find the conviction to do so!

    1. Hi Stacey, I was reading through the messages that people are sending to Doreen and I went “WOW!!!” when I read that you have 100 decks. I only had 4 decks but when I tore every card in half and threw them in a fire, it had a very freeing effect. I felt lighter. So I just wanted to tell you that and to encourage you. God wants so much more for you than what you can find in those decks, and it’s not Him that’s answering you through the cards. Doreen talks about the thousands of dollars worth of “stuff” she threw away too so I’m sure she can sympathize with being hesitant. But it really is very much worth it! ♡

  24. This change is not a surprise for me … … I listened to you and thanked you many times and then I stopped seeing or following you, something was not right.
    Now you know the truth! give thanks to God for giving you this opportunity.
    You are nothing different from me in the eyes of God, he has chosen you to transmit his sacred word in your work to thousands of followers who have confused you.
    Thanks for this change and do not get confused, we need you!

  25. Hi Doreen, I just recently discovered, when searching online for a Jesus meditation that you became a Christian and left the New age. I used to follow you since years ago and was very into your angel cards, readings and the crystals book. I wanted to go meet you in person once in New York city. I also recently have been drawn more into Christianity when I just happened upon this life changing decision you made for yourself. I thought, what an interesting coincidence.. But I’m finding it also challenging with all these changes. It’s been a crazy time and I appreciate guidance right now.

  26. Hello Doreen…

    Thank you for everything you are doing for us in here. I am really proud of the way that you are growing into real LOVE through the gospels of Jesus Christ. Thank you for sticking up for us in here! 🙏🏽

    Joseph

  27. Hi Doreen, I too have been following you for years, through your new age til now. I was always in a struggle with my spirituality because I loved God and Jesus and all His angels, but the church had put such fear into my heart. I still feel that way, even though my father is an Orthodox Priest. I can’t overcome the power plays and corruption in the church to find serenity there. So I pray at home for guidance and clarity. I still feel lost and wonder about your complete dedication to Jesus even though you are intuitive and have the ability to hear spirit. I can’t reconcile the fact that you’ve heard angels and spirits all your life, but now say they were demons. I hope you can help me understand, because I’m intuitive also, not to the degree you were, but I have knowing when I someone deceased is speaking with me, or have knowing when I feel a spirit is passing on a loving message for someone. Is that not God or Jesus or his Angels? Is every voice a demon, and if so, how do you know it was Jesus showing Himself and not just another demon in Disguise? My father and the Orthodox Church believes no one has direct access to Jesus. We just pray to God and he will sort it out if it’s His will. My father is the most awesome sermon writer and I asked him recently is he not divinely inspired to write. Does he not believe God is talking to him. He reacted like I had just blasphemed, horrified that I had even contemplated that he deserved Gods attention. How do you feel about that? I hope I haven’t insulted you with these questions. I’m just wishing, praying and waiting for God to show me the way back to him, and I’m watching your journey with love in my heart for you but with just a little bit of envy, for it’s what I’m seeking and I feel like it’s just out of my grasp and it’s making me very frustrated! LOL

  28. WOW! beautiful Doreen God bless your soul and your family I know the Lord is using you to turn ALOT of people from the new age to Christ! keep up the good work Doreen!

  29. Dear Doreen!
    Thank you for sharing your story and experience with us. I just downloaded your ebook and look forward to reading it.
    I just want to say to you: Don’t fret about your previous work and writings. I don’t believe it will lead anyone astray as it is written with your true intentions of helping and guiding prople towards peace, happiness and abundance. All is well – and if you ask God to let your old work, you don’t have any controle over anymore, still help people to get to know Him and find a path to Him – then He will do so. I am sure of it!
    My own experience with your previous work has been like this: I have taken the bits and pieces, I found helpful, and let the rest be. Your book on archangels and ascended masters was interesting, but I have only used it as a reference – not as a lecture written in stone! The more “colourful masters” I just ignored as not relevant to me! Just like the tarot- and angel-cards and stuff never appealed to me or interested me, so I let them be. I am sure others like me have done the same – so there is no harm done there! :o)
    I have been a christian all my life. I have always had a close relationship with God and have prayed to Him and had “conversations” with Jesus as long as I can remember. In my view there is no harm done in asking His angels to help me find my keys or a parking space or whatever practical task. I always thank God for borrowing His angels and feel it’s OK with Him I do so. I have never been psychic or anything, but I have experienced the power of prayer and seen miracles of alle kinds happen in front of my eyes. I have always trusted my “gut-feeling” after prayer, and it has always served me well.
    I have always had a good “gut-feeling” about you, Doreen, and I still do! You mean well, and that is the most important thing.
    Fear not!

  30. I downloaded your book Doreen,on kindle so I could read it thoroughly.I borrowed your book The Angel Therapy book ,found it interesting.I thought now I was ready to join Angelic reiki classes costing £1000 for the full course.However,Inever could visulise any angels or spirits,so wondered if I was making the right decision.Fortunately I came across your website which I picked up from your book from the Library,and hit straight on your message dated 18August’18. My mind is cleared now to make the right decision.Thank you so much for coming out clean.
    All the best for the right path you were guided to,towards Jesus.

  31. God Bless you Doreen and for having the courage and conviction to make that change. I have been doing readings and energy healing for 17 years at a metaphysical store in the San Diego area and have quite a following. On August 1st 2018 God spoke to me in an audible voice and said, GIVE YOUR NOTICE AND STOP DOING READINGS!!! It shook me and I stopped immediately. I’ve always had a love and a deep connection with Jesus and have always been guided by God and Jesus. It saddened me to drop all my clients but when God speaks, you have to listen. On a smaller scale, I understand how you may feel. At age 55 Im in career change and we will see where God leads me. Im sure it will be a good one. Love to you Doreen and everyone that reads this post. God Bless 💚💕💙

  32. Dear Doreen, Thank you so much for your book!
    I once was lost, but now I’m found. Once blind, but now I see. I am grateful that I have come to experience and understand the ‘new age’ part, the ‘soul searching’ and ‘the universe is everything’ during a certain period in my life. Because now I can use that to help others find Jesus (again) as well. Your book is a great help and I thank you once again. Praise the lord. Amen.
