Doreen Virtue on Grief…

“When your heart breaks from grief, that can also be the time

when your heart opens even more to love.” -Doreen Virtue
As you may know, Louise Hay made her transition recently on August 30, 2017, passing peacefully in her sleep at age 90. Although she had lived a long life, it was still a shock when she passed.

Shock is a natural reaction to change. It’s the first stage of grief which gives us a cushion while we slowly adjust to accepting the change. Even if you didn’t know Louise personally, it’s likely that you felt a personal connection with her, and that can still lead to shock and other signs of grief.

When new losses occur, it can bring up old unhealed grief about our previous losses. New grief can compound old grief. Signs of unhealed grief can include a change in eating or sleeping patterns, unstable emotions including bursts of anger, temptation to relapse into addictive behavior, and depression.

That’s why it’s important to take good care of yourself during the grieving process. Being extra-gentle with yourself, keeping your schedule simple, avoiding harsh situations, immersing yourself in prayer, and making quiet time, are examples of necessary self-care during the grieving process. Therapists who specialize in healing from grief and trauma, as well as grief support groups, can be tremendously helpful.

Grief involves many emotions and thoughts, including survivor’s guilt, anger and blame. These aren’t pleasant emotions, but they need to be addressed instead of smothered over, or ignored. Prayer, journaling, and getting compassionate support can help you to heal from these intense-but-normal reactions to loss.

Grief, like all forms of earthly suffering, can lead to great healing and spiritual growth. Our broken hearts can have more compassion, and a greater ability to love deeply. We may be inspired to help others through their grief, to spend more quality time with loved ones, and to focus upon our true priorities.

Here’s a helpful prayer:

“Dear God, Thank you for holding my hand and sending your comforting angels to me during this time of transition. Please lift me up, and give me the strength to fulfill my responsibilities and priorities, and show me which activities to focus upon and which to release. Thank you for being with my loved one who crossed over, and reassuring me that they are with you in heaven. In Jesus name, Amen.”

In his sermon on the mount, Jesus said these comforting words: “God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted” (Matthew 5:4 NLT).

My prayers are with you, and with everyone whose heart is grieving. May we find peace and comfort in God’s love.


Doreen Virtue changes her message. Here are my thoughts.

Doreen Virtue changes her message. Here are my thoughts.

Although I will continue to follow Doreen Virtue, who has helped multitudes of people around the world with her psychic gifts, it looks like she may no longer be posting the weekly Divine Guidance/Angel Messages, so I will not necessarily be posting her new “Heart to Heart with Doreen Virtue” (Jesus/Bible messages), after this one, because they do not resonate with me. However, I feel much gratitude for her body of work, and I continue to use her cards, self-healing videos and podcast meditations. I have great respect for her, although her views differ from mine.

Her recent contact with Jesus and subsequent changes she has made has stirred much controversy in both the New Age and Christian communities. HOWEVER, DOREEN VIRTUE HAS NOT “DENOUNCED” EVERYTHING, as she explains in this video. She points out that many of the rumors are not true, so she has taken the time to explain what has transpired in her life.  I think it is best to listen to Doreen express her own views in these 2 videos before passing judgment.

Heart to Heart with Doreen Virtue: Trust in the Lord

IMHO, the difference between “fortune-tellers” and someone sharing their psychic spiritual gifts from God is INTENTION. Doreen has always had only the best of intentions, so that has not changed. What has changed is now that she has come to understand her gifts on a deeper level, she knows she must make sure God is the source of her messages before sharing them. She mentions towards the end of the video that God and Jesus do not want us to JUDGE others. Here is Doreen’s full statement, along with the video that she posted last week on her FB page:
