Off topic: Okay I want to talk to people about...
Critiquing Doreen Virtue's Angel Therapy cards and readers. I will start off by saying that I do have some of her decks and some are really good and inspirational but I've gotten in touch with a couple of her readers and even followed her on facebook. I even asked her to clarify a reading I did for myself once using one of her decks. I have to say, the two readers I've known seem to hide behind the "angel" facade and IMO give bad, judgemental advice in their readings. I don't know, perhaps I will post one of the readings I had over the weekend but in a nutshell, the reader basically first started to say that a particular guy I liked was basically an untrusting *******/psychopath. Tried to make me out to be a nicer but more naive person, etc. etc. I know that guys who seem nice can end up being total jerks but that's not the point. There's a bit more to this story and basically the reading left me scared, crying, and depressed. It's ironic I even felt the need to reach out to a californiapsychics.com psychic (which I know you are supposed to take with a saltshaker of salt) but the psychic I talked to was able to sooth me. In short, after talking to Doreen herself and dealing with two of her certified angel readers, one I know personally and found out was a huge ***** and hypocrite. Another, just seemed very judgemental. I don't know if I can call her or her company a positive thing. This is why I'm starting to mistrust all the "light magick/new agey" crap. It's so fake at times and sometimes I feel I would rather be associated with dark magick paths because from my experiences with both, dark/gray magick witches and the like are more real, don't beat around the bush as much and at least you know what you are getting with them. That said, yes I do have a mixed path of Christianity and witchcraft that draws some from Wicca. But the more I learn about the true meaning of Christianity and get myself exposed to more liberal ideology of denomination other than the conservative Baptist I was raised with, I'm learning that Christianity isn't all that bad. At it's core, it's not even a light and fluffy religion. It's very gray area actually and if you use it right, it makes you think.
So in short, even if I kept my Christianity, I don't see the danger in maybe incorporating chaos magick or some form of Satanism with it.
