The Doreen Virtue Christian Conversion Conversation

Just to let you know, I started this in April 2017 when Doreen Virtue was newly born again and had said negative things about the Ascended Masters books and decks. I see that The Doreen Virtue/Jesus conversation has flared again, making me want to continue working on this piece to share my take on it… So, I’ve been coming across some really interesting information and debate in the New Age Spiritual Community concerning Hay House author and angel guru, Doreen Virtue. In the past few years, as many of you know, Doreen Virtue’s work and she, herself – as a brand and celebrity – have skyrocketed. She kind of cornered the angel market and held the reputation of the Queen of Angel Work for the past 10 years or so. Personally, I have read some of her books and I own a few of her decks. I even volunteered for her in Salzburg, Austria and in Zurich, Switzerland. I met many beautiful friends and business colleagues through her work and at those events. I’ve found her teaching style to be very easy to follow and, I think, well set up for people who are just starting to work intensively with their intuition and with different entities. Angel work, too, struck a chord with me. I’ve written about my experiences before and find the energy of the angels – or whatever you want to call them – soothing, calming, and just plain nice. When I call on the angels, I feel protected. When I ask the angels for signs they are with me, I often get something totally funny and...
Don’t Freak Out About A Bad Review

Don’t Freak Out About A Bad Review

  What should you do when you get a bad review? I see time and time again – people like you and me who are doing readings and putting their hearts and souls into their work – feeling down in the dumps about a bad review or negative feedback. Don’t worry, Sensitive Spiritual Entrepreneur! Bad reviews come with the territory. You have to learn to use some of the negative feedback you get to up your game – and also to fully appreciate the fact that you won’t please or connect well with everyone. Some of the clients even lie about their situations and then get mad at us for pointing out that we see the truth! Now, don’t think I am saying to ignore scores of bad reviews! If you are getting more bad reviews than good reviews, check your work. Are you giving your clients 100% of your attention or are you multitasking or having more than one conversation at a time? Are your kids making a lot of noise in the background? Is your connection clear and crisp, or do you need a new headset and microphone to chat on? Is your computer fast enough? Do you need to polish your psychic, communication, or typing skills? Are you staying logged in through the night, groggily answering chat requests when they wake you from a deep slumber? How’s your attitude? If bad reviews aren’t a common thing for you, then your bad review or feedback might be due to one of the following things: You don’t say what the client wants to hear Many of our clients are...
Overcoming Overwhelm

Overcoming Overwhelm

    Ugh. During the past year or so (maybe even more), I wasn’t walking the talk and I felt like a big fraud. My life got off course and out of control. I was stressed (understatement of the decade), overwhelmed, overworked, underappreciated, ashamed, sad, depressed, fearful, hopeful, curious, HUMAN. Just because I am a life coach and intuitive soul advisor doesn’t mean I don’t face my own trials in life. I have good days and bad days like everyone else. I will be quite honest with you – I make mistakes. I struggle. I do the wrong thing and I learn (hopefully). I need support and encouragement. I need an ear to listen and a shoulder to cry on, just like everyone else. I am no island. I wanted to get this all off of my chest so that you could, perhaps, find some sort of connection – something that said, “Oh, if SHE is facing and conquering all of this shit, I can do it, too!” So, where should I start the story… Hm. It seems like it might have started with the birth of my boys… with me taking a lion’s share of the responsibility for being awake at night and in the morning and feeding them and doing all of their care because I was just used to doing things myself. (My husband is a pilot and, for various reasons like his responsibility for the lives of hundreds of people during his workday and fact that he is out of town most of the time, I felt his sleep and rest were a bit more important...
Ten Questions Every Tarot Reader (Except Me) Fears

Ten Questions Every Tarot Reader (Except Me) Fears

  Last year, I shared a post from James Bulls about the Ten Questions Every Tarot Reader Fears. The list James posted gives us all a fabulous way to look inside of the way we read tarot for others. Today, I will be answering the questions for you so that you can get a feel for my readings. Heck, I am even using the same images in this article, because I liked them so well! LOL! Blessed be! #1) How did you become a Tarot reader? Did you have a teacher, or did you teach yourself? Initially, when I started reading tarot in the late 80s/early 90s, I didn’t have a teacher. I picked up the Thoth, Mirror Of Your Relationships deck and started working with the cards and the guidebook that came with it. I have to say, working with that deck and those concepts really opened my perception of life up and gave me LOADS of inspiration. When I started reading tarot, it wasn’t as common and out in the open as it is today – we didn’t have the internet and teachers and classes were few, far between, and out of my budget. So, I read and read and read the tarot. I learned by doing. When Doreen Virtue released her Certified Angel Card Reader course in 2012, I signed up right away and took the course. The concepts Doreen introduced about a more intuitive and free-flowing approach to tarot really helped me to expand my readings and combine the classic meanings of the cards with the intuitive messages I receive. Since then, I have done...
Woah! Woah! Woah, Dude! Put That Back In Your Pants!

Woah! Woah! Woah, Dude! Put That Back In Your Pants!

  Holy Moly Um. So, I never expected that working for a psychic hotline would put me in a world that is more like porn chat than tarot readings. YUCK. My first invitation for a reading at one of the world’s largest PSYCHIC/TAROT video chat service (I bolded and underlined to emphasize the reason I was there) was with a man in either his 20s or 30s who wanted to have a jerk off session. How did I know that? Well, once we got in the private chat room, he didn’t waste much time in whipping out his man parts and starting to stroke them. via GIPHY Um. WTF, dude? I said, “You can put that away now. I don’t want to see that.” He continued to fondle himself. I left the room and blocked him. And I didn’t go back to that site for at least a month. In the meantime, I got a dick pic in response to an email I sent out. Again, put that thing back in your pants. I don’t want to see it. No, really. I don’t. No thank you. The other day, I decided to give the big video psychic chat line  another shot. 2 out of 3 of the private reading requests I got were not for tarot readings, but to be witness to some random stranger’s masturbation. Aren’t there chat lines for that kind of stuff? Special places where the participants are expecting flirtation and *ahem* ego stroking? Why go to a tarot reader for that? Unfortunately, I do know some online ‘psychic’ personalities who oblige men like that –...
