“”Doreen Virtue, the woman who runs seminars on how to talk to angels. And yes, there are apparently adults who are not in mental institutions (yet) who believe in this.
|—Skeptico Critical thinking for an irrational world |
Doreen Virtue (born 1958) is an Angel Therapy charlatan (yes you read that correctly: Angel Therapy). She is one of only a few special select people who can "see" and "communicate" with angels including the guardian angels that watch out over all of us. If you're a lady between about 35 and 65, at home and without too much education and access to pricy-hourly-rate-kind-of-cash, Virtue may have just what you're looking for. Indeed, Virtue has an impressive, unverified story about how angels saved her life when armed robbers tried to steal her car, the angels told her to scream and she screamed.  Predictably (like most such charlatans) her amazing Angel interventions, clairvoyance and unaccredited advanced psychology degrees did not stop her pattern of chronic disastrous personal relationship.
For a price, Virtue will show you how angels can help you the way they help her. Doreen is something of a prolific woo-factory turning out several books a year on angel related cruft. Earlier in her career she focused mainly on folk-psychology writing mainly on relationship therapy. She has written as many books on the topic as men she has married and divorced. Angels seem to be brilliant with numbers but lousy marriage counselors.
Virtue is a longtime student of number-woo, and invented a past life story where she studied under Pythagoras himself. According to Virtue, we're all alchemists somehow or other—it's not clear what that means, but it appears to impress her followers. Anyway, numbers have special significance or vibrations or whatever, and numbers you see on clocks, license plates and the like provide messages from angels—thus, we should ask our angels to explain the significance of these numbers. Angels arrange for specific number sequences to appear round us or subtly "whisper in" our "ear" so that we focus on particular numbers on every day banal objects. If we keep noticing the same number sequences, the angels are giving us a message through those numbers. We can't interpret these messages which angels so carefully give us unless Virtue shows us how, ideally we should buy one of her books which explains it all in more detail than a web page. To understand these numbers in depth you can contact her exchanging her number-woo with your credit card number.
Virtue has a special "Angel Number Calculator" for identifying your personal angel number, or that of other people. Virtue's most notable numbers are located on the price tags of the books she sells.
If you can't afford a personal therapy session with Virtue, there are other "certified spiritual councilors" (CSC) and "angel therapy practitioners" (ATP) that have been certified by the American Board of Hypnotherapy, which is (surprise!) headed by Virtue. Yes, you too can take a series of courses (if you can afford it, that is), obtain the much-coveted ATP title and help others find interpersonal communicative bliss with their guardian angel.
 Indigo crystal and rainbow children
Virtue is excited about indigo children and crystal children and has now come up with something even more remarkable and special called "rainbow children". Since humans evolved from what Virtue calls "ape-like postures", crystal children prove humanity can evolve further. Still, Virtue doesn't mean evolution by natural selection, because she also writes that God is sending these various children as a gift to us. The crystals and the rainbows are both highly sensitive and psychic, they may appear uncommunicative and autistic but really they communicate telepathically instead. Virtue writes that the spirit world told her remarkable things about all these wonderful children while she was asleep. Furthermore, Virtue published a
lucrative spiritually-informed book about the crystal children. We wait with bated breath for her follow-up book on rainbow children.
