For my first proper post in my new blog, I want to write about a book I just completed called Healing With the Fairies by Doreen Virtue. Apparently she has written over 50 books about Angles and angel related topics (many of these books are the small booklets that come with her Oracle Cards). I have recently been purchasing new tarot and oracle card decks and have written a few reviews on my site about the various decks. I also have a few new decks on the way in the mail, as I am using cards more lately when I do readings for people.
The reason why I purchased Doreen’s fairy book was a general interest in nature spirits and basically wanting to know her ‘take’ on fairies. There isn’t a lot around on fairies so this is a confusing subject, and nature spirits themselves don’t interact much with humans – and who can blame them. Doreen, being clairvoyant, is able to communicate with these nature spirits and through her book is able to pass on the messages from the fairy realms.
Before reading the book, I wasn’t 100% sure I believed in fairies specifically, having never seen one myself. I have come across people who tell stories of seeing fairies but you never know whether to believe them or if they are just pulling your leg. But I do believe in Doreen as I know for a fact she works with the Angels and the Ascended Masters, and I also work with the angels. So this was a very interesting read and I am very glad I was guided to this book and actually feet very glad that Doreen wrote it. I don’t think I would go out on a limb and write a book about fairies, that is the kind of person Doreen is, bless her.
This topic is not everyone’s cup of tea, I understand that. For those who love nature, are sensitive to nature, will love reading about the nature realms – that include fairies, sprites and mermaids (water elementals), gnomes, leprechauns etc. I can’t think of them all right now but they are basically spirits who share the earth with us humans, plants and animals, and they look after nature and animals. Fairies are like the guardian angels of flowers and plants, just as we humans also have guardian angels. What a wonderful book to read to learn all kinds of interesting things about these unseen realms, which exist in a slightly higher vibration to our human world and can only really be seen clairvoyantly.
A large part of Doreen’s book is also about her divorce to one man and her journey to find a Soul Mate, which she does. This is a very romantic story and the end of the book finishes on a high when she finds true love. However, me being the pragmatist that I am, I did google Doreen to see if she was still with this love of her life, as the book was published some 10 years ago….and well (spoilers coming), what I discovered is that, although she had stated in the book that she had found the last partner she would ever need find, the marriage in fact did not last and they, too, are now divorced. You can clearly see the mistake she made in assuming her relationship would last for life and confidently stating this at the end of her book, as it makes for a nice ending. Life is never that perfect or simple, and she should know by now that true soul mates often don’t last long as they come together to teach each other. The best soul mate is someone who is not part of your soul, as was not the case with her twin flame.
I am currently reading her book on Archangel Michael which, whilst enjoyable, doesn’t have a lot in it that I haven’t read before elsewhere. I’m a big fan of Michael. So do pick up a Doreen book if you are guided to. They are short books that do not go into great depth but which always seem to cover the topics very nicely and simply. I think she is an enjoyable author to read.
