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!

David Blaine Rape Accusation

I was going to write today about the Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney coming forward to say she was molested by a coach. I wanted everyone to read the last sentence in her Instagram post: “Our silence has given the wrong people power for too long, and it’s time to take our power back.”

This comes on the heels of the #metoo hashtag campaign on Twitter (What woman HASN’T been harassed or molested?). And the scores of actresses coming out against powerful Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

I clicked on The Daily Mail website today to see the headline, “David Blaine accused of rape by model.” The full story is on The Daily Beast (it’s loading really slowly – everyone is reading it right now!). I am shocked. I am a big fan of David’s and I went to see his live show this year, and I have tickets to see it again in December. I don’t know what to say.

Most of the comments on The Daily Mail story say why accuse someone so many years later (from 2004) and how can it even be proven or disproven at this point? Oddly, when I went to see David in Colorado Springs, CO, I had drawn this angel for him (but I didn’t have the nerve to give it to him!). Maybe he really needed this.

Catholic Church Money Scandal

recovering_Catholic

I saw a news story today that the 2nd in command at The Vatican (under our last pope, Pope Benedict) is under investigation for TAKING MONEY FROM A CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL. How evil is that! He got $250,000 from them to re-decorate and remodel his luxury villa in Rome. You just can’t make this stuff up!

The charity hospital, which treats poor kids with CANCER, said it wanted to give the cardinal $250,000 of its donation money to redo his villa so the charity could do fundraisers at the fancy mansion! Hmmmm-mmmmm.

Whenever I hear about the misdoings of the Catholic church, I think about the awesome storyline in Game of Thrones about the Faith of the Seven. The leader walks around in sackcloth with no shoes, saying he’s just a simple man who wants to help the poor. But, in reality, he is working hard to get in tight with the queen and her family and is super power-hungry!

This also reminds me of Pope Benedict’s Gucci shoes! Maybe that is why he was pope for only a short time…. He had Gucci hand-make red slippers for him = the height of luxury.

I do believe the Catholic church/The Vatican/the Pope is going to fall due to the high levels of corruption and misdeeds in the church. As the age of ascension nears, it becomes impossible for people to keep evil secrets like this. The truth comes out!

Not to mention the super evil child molestation cases and subsequent cover-ups, which also reached the highest levels of the church.

Bill Cosby and the New Age

I found myself thinking about the Bill Cosby scandal yesterday, even though it hasn’t been in the news for awhile. I find it interesting that one side effect of the new, higher level energy coming in is more scandals coming to light. It will be harder for people in power to pull the wool over our eyes! Bill Cosby (famous black comedian) lived for years and years with this scandal hovering in the shadows. I know a few tabloid magazines and TV shows would occasionally run stories about women accusing of him sexual assault. But nothing ever came of it (he did reportedly pay off one of the women who then signed a non-disclosure agreement, in a court settlement). But now, in the dawning of the new age, the Age of Aquarius, women are coming to power. FINALLY, the balance between men and women will be restored, and women will enjoy true equality. In fact, the scales may even become tipped in our favor!

What other scandals will soon be revealed?
