How to Be Your Own Genie Book Review

I read Hay House Tarot card reader/creator Radleigh Valentine’s new book,How to Be Your Own Genie: Manifesting the Magical Life You Were Born to Live.” 

How to be your own Genie book by Radleigh Valentine

I love the book cover for How to be your own Genie!

This is a sponsored post, meaning if you follow this link and buy the new Radleigh Valentine book on the Hay House website, I get a little money! I didn’t get the book for free, so I could use the money 😉

The book is a fun read, great as a gift or to flip through when you need a little pick me up! If you don’t know who Radleigh is, he’s best friends with Doreen Virtue! So some of the info is the same as the “old” Doreen Virtue, like “Don’t let anything dull your sparkle.” He is super flamboyant and eccentric, like a Broadway or Vegas showman. He always wears a very sparkly suit coat and sometimes sparkly shoes to match! It’s funny because I live in Vegas now and I was walking through the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood and saw suits like the ones he wears – very sparkly with giant rhinestones  – and I thought, maybe this is where Radleigh buys his outfits? Haha.

I LOVE writing notes, so I took 4 whole pages of notes on this book! I think that is way to looooong for this blog post, so I typed them up as a pdf file you can download and read or print. There is lots of good information in the book, but most of it you’ve heard before.

I hadn’t known much about Radleigh Valentine:

  • grew up gay in The South (not easy)
  • is part Cherokee Indian (very cool – I wish I was part Native American!)
  • after college, worked as a boring accountant
  • started doing Tarot card readings and loved it
  • looked up the Hay House authors and met Doreen Virtue at a live event
  • started working as a helper to Doreen and became best friends

He decided he wanted to be a Hay House author, too, and voila! Here he is! Radleigh is very active on social media, especially Facebook Live, if you want to follow him.

Here’s the table of contents from his book, “How to Be Your Own Genie”:

contents page from How to be your own Genie

I like a lot of the words on this page: magic, magical, genie, love, joy and wishes!

At first glance, I thought Radleigh’s book would be about Genies, which is a specific realm that Doreen Virtue described in her Realm Reader course. Genies are a type of spiritual person who lives in or loves the desert! They are associated with flowing, gauzy outfits in the colors of the sunset, precious gemstones and a sunny disposition! They have lots of friends and are great networkers. Being a Genie, they are great at making money! But Radleigh doesn’t talk about this sort of Genie in his book. (I am working on writing about Genies and other spiritual types of people.) Instead, Radleigh says each of us has magical powers, like a Genie. He is talking about using positive energy to bring into your life what you want.

Radleigh Valentine believes in:

  • getting signs from angels like feathers or the number 444 (I always see 111)
  • feng shui (de-cluttering and organizing your house)
  • choosing a magical word or song to keep your spirits up (Mine is “Fame.”)
  • asking your body what it wants to be healthy*
  • automatic writing
  • getting rid of Drama Queens in your life (he calls them Drama Masters)
  • not dwelling on your past or having regrets
  • using happy thoughts/positive emotions to attract good things

* I did this and it worked! Sit down with pen and paper and ask your body what it needs to be healthy. Do “automatic writing” which means just keep writing down whatever comes up. My body said it wants a gentle energy. I was expecting something specific, like a meal plan! This makes sense, though, as I’m very sensitive to energy. Right now, I’m living in Vegas and it’s VERY LOUD here. So, I can see why this came up as an issue for my body. I spend a lot of time here trying to relax and loosen up my tight muscles –> joint pain.

Learn Tarot: The Witchy Woman or Psychic Card

This card reminds me of that song from The Eagles, “Witchy Woman!” It’s actually The High Priestess card. In my deck, it’ll be called The Psychic. But if you are into witchcraft, you can think of her as a Witch. It represents a psychic, spiritual, powerful, smart woman (I like to think it represents ME!).

#2 Tarot Card: The High Priestess, The Priest, The Psychic, The Witchy Woman

Symbolism in The High Priestess or The Psychic or The Witchy Woman Card

I love this image from the Fairy Tarot deck because the High Priestess or The Psychic or The Witchy Woman, looks so regal like a queen. I added a small lapis lazuli stone to the photo (at the bottom edge of her blue dress). You can see the colors match EXACTLY (especially with the crown she is wearing). This stone is from Egypt and was worn by the pharaohs. It symbolizes WISDOM. Another symbol of wisdom in the card is the book the Psychic is holding. This ancient book represents using your intuition to tap into knowledge from The Other Side. This is what psychics do, but anyone can do it!

Is David Blaine Live Show Appropriate for Children?

I get a lot of people commenting and searching for this. I answered this previously in a comment on this blog. David has a “Parental Advisory” sticker on his show posts. But there is nothing sexual and no profanity in his show (unlike most shows, I might add). However, there is some gross stuff like needles and ice picks stuck into body parts! David asked a young kid interested in doing magic up on stage at both of the shows I saw in 2017. So if you have a budding magician, I think it would be a great show for them to see!

Doreen Virtue Dropped by Publisher Part 2


Other things Doreen Virtue reveals in her February 9th YouTube video:

  • she is still friends with Radleigh Valentine (another Hay House author and card deck creator) and says he was mostly in charge of creating their co-owned Tarot decks – I guess this is a good thing because I want to see more Tarot decks!
  • she still likes gay people, but she is “praying for them”
  • she will no longer use Tarot cards or oracle cards or do anything that is divination – forbidden in the Bible (depending on who you ask – there are a lot of oracles in the Bible)
  • if you are conflicted about whether YOU should stop using Tarot and oracle cards, Doreen says consult with the Holy Spirit – this is a big change as she always said “ask the angels”
  • she still believes in angels and since they are in the Bible, they are OK (she didn’t mention fairies, which she sometimes calls Nature Angels but I don’t think she is OK with them because she mentioned she had planned to write a book about Nature Angels, but cancelled it after she became a Christian)
  • she had to give back the advances she was paid by Hay House for book deals she pulled out of (more financial problems for her!)
  • she choose the Pacific Northwest partly because the state she is living in has no income tax, whereas Hawaii has a high income tax
  • asked Hay House to stop printing her book Ascended Masters and they have, she believes some of the Ascended Masters she connected with were evil imposters
  • wants Hay House to stop printing all of her oracle cards, but that’s not as easy for them to do
  • had Hay House remove her name from all of the Tarot cards and oracle cards she created with co-authors; now the co-authors can continue with them
  • she never uses her own angel oracle or angel Tarot cards anymore! she describes reading cards as a crutch and believes you should ask God/pray
  • 1 more Doreen Virtue book and 1 more Doreen Virtue oracle card deck is coming out on Hay House in 2018
  • the book is about saints and angels (this annoys me because saints are a CATHOLIC thing and I know these born-again churches diss the Catholic Church! Doreen’s new followers aren’t going to want to read about Catholic saints – ONLY Jesus and the Bible. and I haven’t heard her say a peep about the Virgin Mary – another no-no in the ultra-right Christian churches)
  • the oracle card deck is called Love and Light. the imagery looks New Age but the cards have Bible quotes. Doreen was hoping this item would be OK to sell through Hay House, and she could plan more items that bridge the gap between Christians and New Agers (I do like this idea, actually, but it seems Hay House got fed up with all the hate mail they got after they published Doreen’s Jesus cards and Bible books.)
  • crystals are OK because they are mentioned in the Bible (heaven is paved with gold inlaid with gemstones like rubies and emeralds, etc.)
  • she considers herself married to Jesus! this is slightly off as Doreen thinks being baptized is analogous to marrying Jesus…but in the Catholic Church it’s the NUNS who are considered married to Jesus! some nuns will wear a wedding ring after taking their vows of celibacy, as if Jesus was their (non-sexual) husband
  • Hay House told Doreen they were dropping her just before Christmas 😦
  • Doreen no longer has a Hay House Radio show, sad as this was my favorite thing she did! I even called in and got on the air once! she said I would get an environmental science job and live in Montana…didn’t come true. I am still only self-employed (in cartoon animation and graphic design/digital illustration) and I moved to Las Vegas instead! however, I still occasionally apply for environmental science jobs (there aren’t many listed) – but not in Montana which has more trees than people!
  • she is now doing free Bible classes every day on her Instagram and Vimeo accounts
  • she said she will respond to just about any DM/direct message she gets on Instagram…I am tempted to ask her if she would help me get a book deal with Hay House to continue writing about some of the subjects she was teaching, like fairies who help the environment and people belonging to different realms. is this rude?



Doreen Virtue Video: Dropped by Hay House

I am not following the Doreen Virtue conversion to Christianity melodrama anymore, but when I logged into YouTube one of her videos popped up in my feed. She recorded herself answering frequently asked questions from her fans and former fans (February 9, 2018). It’s a shocker!

Watch the Doreen Virtue video on YouTube (1 hour long)

The bombshell comes at the end (around the 53-minute mark): Hay House has dropped Doreen Virtue! I was surprised because they stuck with her for awhile, even when she only wanted to write about Jesus and the Bible. What do you think?

The other interesting tidbit is that Doreen says she moved to the Pacific Northwest…which is the same info I got in a comment here. The person wrote that she is living in a small town near Seattle.

Doreen talks a lot about the rescue ranch she had in Hawaii and why it failed. Honestly, I’ve heard so many different versions of events from her now that I think she is backpedaling from all the criticism she has gotten online. Basically, Doreen and her husband Michael had no idea how to run a rescue ranch. And they never sought advice from seasoned rescue ranches. They just bought a huge (40 acres) ranch on the Big Island and started filling it with as many animals as she could buy off of Craigslist! They soon had 300 animals. They discovered that the feed bills and vet bills were enormous. They hired 2 full-time ranch hands. And leased grazing pastures for the sheep. Then, Doreen suddenly converted to Christianity (the Bible-thumping kind) and denounced her old books and divination card decks. She told the publishing company to remove her from any future royalties from the products that don’t fit her Christian beliefs. She says her income from Hay House dropped 70 per cent.

Oddly, she then decided to move to the mainland without selling the ranch first. She says in the YouTube video that a realtor told her the property would sell faster this way. The reason was that Doreen and Michael had 11 dogs in the little ranch house and the barking was intense, which could frustrate potential buyers looking at the house and land. The ranch still hasn’t sold! And she can no longer afford the mortgage! The original owners of the ranch have agreed to pay the mortgage while she pays a small amount to keep the property maintained for showings. She is still paying the 2 ranch hands to feed birds left behind on the property: chickens, peacocks and wild turkeys. I don’t know much about buying and selling houses, but it all seems backwards to me. She also says when they bought this ranch, her beautiful house in Maui hadn’t sold yet (the one you see in her videos with fairy doors). So, a lot of bad financial choices. Doreen spent ALL OF HER SAVINGS on feeding and caring for the rescue ranch animals.

On the bright side, I do think Doreen will get a publishing deal with a Christian publisher soon. She is quite a workhorse; always writing books and creating card decks.

Another odd thing: the rescue ranch was never listed as a charity. Doreen says a financial  advisor told her it would be confusing to the IRS since she (at the time) was wealthy and could finance it with her own money. This sounds completely crazy to me! I myself filled out charity paperwork and it’s quite easy! Because the rescue ranch was never a charity, Doreen said she couldn’t really ask for donations (although she sorta did). So, she sold off her goddess gowns on eBay and planned on using that money to help with the feed and vet bills…but Doreen offered FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING, which is a selling no-no because someone could be living in Antartica and you’d have to pay the shipping for them. And she HIRED SOMEONE to do the whole eBay selling thing  for her (again, I’ve sold on eBay and it’s not hard! but maybe she felt like she didn’t have the time to deal with it). And she paid this person so well that almost no money was leftover. So, don’t hire Doreen to be in charge of your finances – hahaha.

Doreen and Michael gave away all of the animals (not her personal dogs and cats, but she did give away her personal horses because it would have cost too much to ship them from Hawaii to the mainland) to her vegan friends. She was part of some vegan groups, she said, and posted on the vegan message boards that all of her rescue animals (and horses) needed forever homes.

The whole saga is just such a disaster!
