I bought this book a few weeks ago, and finished this book. And I loved it so much, I'm re-reading it. Doreen has had an amazing year with amazing books such as Archangels 101, and the Healing Miracles of Archangel Raphael. I hope this book becomes a New York Times Best-Selling Author. I truly believe in the vision of this book. This is a handbook that introduces us to all the angels and Archangels in the realms of the heavens. And it lists the different psychic techniques that we can all easily use to open our clairvoyance and other intuitive secrets (you'll have to read this book to find out). Doreen also teaches her readers how to do an angel reading, how to cut cords, how to work with Archangel Michael.
The second half of the book is amazing because Doreen teaches you and inspires you on how to make meaning out of your life; how manifest your dream job; how to find your life purpose. Then she teaches you how to become a successful spiritual teacher. This is a lovely book. I usually do not write many reviews on amazon.com. So me writing a review this book, means that I highly highly suggest this book. I highly suggest this book for Spiritual Counselors who are looking to incorporate ancient angelic wisdom into their work. This book is packed with so much information.
Please, please buy this book! It's so good!
Then I attended Hay House's I Can Do It conference in Pasadena this Fall. I noticed many authors had workshops in regular sized conference rooms. Doreen Virtue drew such a big crowd that they put her in the main auditorium for her workshop. "Maybe there is something to this angel stuff," I thought, as I watched a stream of people going into Doreen's talk. Though I didn't hear Doreen speak that weekend, I decided when I got back home to check one of her books out.
In the introduction of "Angel Therapy" Doreen explains how she connected with angels at a young age. "I was teased for being weird and different," she writes, "I rarely shared my odd experiences with others in order to avoid additional ostracism." I liked this personal biography to start the book, and I came away believing that Doreen really does communicate with angels, even if the idea seemed foreign to me.
After sharing her personal experiences, Doreen gives a very thorough explanation of what an angel is, the different types of angels, and how they communicate with us. She reveals that angels talk to us in a combination of four ways - visions, feelings, thoughts, and sound - and that one of these channels is strongest for each of us (which she calls your "primary clair"). In taking a short test in the book I was typed as "claircognizance" - or "an intellectual who receives direct communication through ideas and revelations." This I agree with. I am more of an "idea person" than the other types. Communicating with angels through impressions or ideas didn't seem so far fetched after all. I found myself saying "that's me" when reading her chapter on the features of claircognizance, and I suspect one of the four "clairs" will ring true for you, too.
In another chapter Doreen answers the common objections to interacting with angels. "Is it blasphemous to talk to angels?", "What if I'm wrong or just making it up?", "Isn't it better to learn life's lessons on my own?" are three of the questions she addresses. I thought her answers to these and other objections were well thought out. I came away thinking communicating with angels could be a loving, supportive area of growth for me, rather than a practice to be wary of.
Angel Therapy is also full of sound advice. In addition to the detailed descriptions of angels Doreen sprinkles little bits of wisdom throughout the book. In one chapter she writes, "Two indicators that you're aligned with your life purpose are (1) feeling joy as you engage in the activity; and (2) doors open for you easily while experiencing success with the service or product." I've been doing a lot of thinking on my life's purpose recently, and these words were encouraging to me.
After finishing "Angel Therapy" I regretted not hearing Doreen Virtue speak when I had the chance a few months ago. While I still wonder about some of the material in the book, reading Angel Therapy made me more open to the angelic realm. Maybe angels really are out there to support me. Maybe I've been communicating with them in my own way for years, and I just didn't know it.
This is another book review in my partnership with Hay House. I was not financially compensated for this post. I received the book from Hay House for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.
I used to regret not being able to go to her angel therapy workshop and now I have to say I think I did that on my own in the past 10 years by the study and meditation I did.
Dr. Virtue could have elaborated on certain issues for advanced practitioners. She gives useful advice if you looking to market yourself as a writer/speaker/healer in the spiritual profession. Basically network like crazy and you will build your reputation. If you haven't read her prior work and attended her workshop, then read this otherwise its a skip.
