Courage to be Create - Doreen Virtue

You were born creative, because you are the creation of the Creator, as we all are. If you don’t feel that way or your artistic endeavors haven’t worked out, this book can help you. Doreen Virtue, the beloved author of over 100 best-selling books, card decks, and audio/video programs, shows you how to gain more than a dozen forms of courage that lead to creativity – including an unshakable belief in yourself and dedication to seeing your sacred ideas and dreams through to fruition.

In these pages, Doreen reveals the secrets behind her own incredibly prolific creative output, details what guides her writing process, and offers an unprecedented window onto what it really looks like to be self-employed in the creative arts. In addition, each chapter features useful tips to lead you to discover your natural talents as a writer or artist and in other creative vocations or avocations. Doreen also includes summaries of fascinating psychological studies that showcase how to become a successful and satisfied creative individual.

Filled with real-world advice, scientific research on creativity, and true stories, The Courage to Be Creative both lays bare the divinely guided path to “birthing” a creative work and charts the earthly path to jump-starting your creative career (including confidently navigating the labyrinth of literary and creative agencies, publishers, marketing outlets, and much more).

This extraordinary book merges the spiritual with the practical, demonstrating how to courageously harness your innate gifts for purposeful artistic pursuits and lasting fulfillment – creatively, personally, and professionally, as well as financially – and leave your unique mark on the world.


My 5 Star Review

As a long time follower of Doreen Virtue, and a reader of many of her books, I couldn’t help but want to read this one too. One may think there is only so much one can write about angels, but if you’ve read Virtue’s books you will know there are many angels among us and each serves a particular realm they govern over.

This book resonated with me because the author shares more of herself in this book with her journey to becoming a writer and obstacles she’s overcome in her own life in pursuing her dream to be a prolific writer and a messenger of the angels with her words. She also shares what it’s like to have a low self-esteem and how she learned to build herself up and pursue her dreams despite the rejection along the way.

As a writer myself, who writes about overcoming low self-esteem and growing through adversity, it was interesting to read from a most popular fellow author that many of our paths are not easy. Virtue offers a wealth of positivity in this book by recognizing that we all have creativity within us. She shows us the way to find our own creativity and use it with the useful tips offered in this book and includes an extensive list of references we can use to build our creative selves and places we can let our work be seen.


Chakra Clearing by Doreen Virtue

Get this book on Amazon! 




When you clear away negative energy residues from fear and worry, your natural spiritual power awakens. This innate power allows you to know the future; freely communicate with God and the angels; and heal yourself, others, and the planet. In Chakra Clearing, Doreen Virtue guides you through meditations and visualizations to clear your chakras, which activates your inborn healing and psychic abilities.

Enclosed you’ll also find a download link for meditative audio that complements the material in the book. The audio starts with a morning meditation designed to begin your day with a bright, positive energy frequency and surround you with healing light. The relaxing evening meditation that follows clears away energy that you may have absorbed during the day, and invites angels to enter your dreams and give you divine messages.


My 5 Star Review:


Another inspirational self help guide and book from a great author and communicator with angels. 

Virtue is a master at showing us the way to heal ourselves with the help of meditations and learning how to manifest healing and desires with the summoning of angels. In this book she introduces us to the Chakras, where they are positioned in our bodies and how to recognize blockages which can stagnate the energies within us. Her guidance will help us understand how the Chakras work, and her tips on how to clear the blocked energies which govern our bodies is written to demonstrate how visualization can manifest and regenerate the light within us. There is also a section about how to call on your angels, and what the different angels represent when calling on for protection.

If you’re a believer in angels, or wish to learn more about the subject then this book is for you.

Two winning and insightful books by Doreen Virtue.
