Nov 22, Cornelia Ward rated it it was amazing. This is such a helpful book! It's perfect for sensitive people who are here to share their gifts with the world but need assistance with setting good boundaries. Good boundaries create great self-care. And, with good self-care, we have the energy and enthusiasm to help others along their path. Virtue wrote this book for people new to the spiritual journey as well as individuals who have been working to make the world a better place for a long time.
She starts in childhood where many learn to p This is such a helpful book! She starts in childhood where many learn to protect their sensitivity in a sometimes harsh world and family environment. She instructs the reader about how to set boundaries without guilt or fear. This includes being loving, avoiding being a pushover, learning good communication skills, and being one's own authority figure. The section on Developing Assertiveness in Relationships includes a very helpful chapter about handling toxic relationships.
It goes into great details about recognizing and effectively addressing interrupting, correcting, one up-manship, clingy neediness, stalking, guilt-tripping, angerholism, unreliability, nosiness, and grumpiness.
Virtue is so clear that these behaviors that people often accept are hurting them emotionally and really not OK. She gives the reader permission to walk away from these dysfunctional situations if necessary. I found the specific recommendations in this section very insightful.
I personally loved the section about following dreams and life purpose. This section alone is well worth purchasing the book.
Highly recommended! View 1 comment. May 04, Bridget rated it liked it. I was first introduced to Doreen Virtue's writing several years ago.
Since then I have devoured her books, even following her on youtube. She seems to be deeply spiritual and very in touch with her real self.
So, I recently acquired this particular book, but was hesitant to read it because of the title. What are earth angels? Did I believe in them? I wasn't sure I did until I came across Virtue's definition of them - "sensitive people I learned a great deal about myself and the relationships I have had with people throughout my life.
But the most important things I learned were how to identify toxic relationships, how to assert myself in an honest and loving way, and how to foster good, healthy relationships. I really think that any person could benefit from reading this book, especially people that may be confused about what assertiveness really looks like.
It isn't aggressive or harsh, but it isn't "nice" either. I feel like many people wrongly identify being assertive with being aggressive, and it would probably be good to have more assertive people than aggressive ones. I feel better and stronger after reading this book and am thankful for the information and instruction it provided.

There are chapters dealing with all kinds of situations, such as toxic family members, miserable workplaces and more, with practical life coaching for ways to handle all of them. This is a book filled with genuine advice to h In this book, author Doreen Virtue applies both her metaphysical and psychological training to help Earth Angels her term for lightworkers be more assertive and get past their instinct to be "too nice.
This is a book filled with genuine advice to help the empath who is constantly being used by those around them. Highly recommended. Jan 30, Judy Croome rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: sensitive, gentle people. One does not have to avoid conflict or meet it with aggression, one can stay true to the value of kindness, but can face conflict head-on in a gentle, polite way, which shows compassion for the issues the other person must be experiencing while keeping our own boundaries healthy.
This book is not just abstract ideas: it also contains some down-to-earth! Jan 26, Sofia Wren rated it liked it. Great reading for sensitive people, especially women.
Earth Angels could also be described as empaths or highly sensitive people. I think this is a population that deserves attention and I'm glad that Doreen wrote this book. It's fairly basic but she goes into a number of common life problems and relationship issues and illuminates basic ways to get out of those bad habits. I think this is a nice book and I recommend it to anyone who feels like they need better boundaries.
However, what it is missi Great reading for sensitive people, especially women. However, what it is missing is more at the end about different energy work techniques or other tools to help separate other people's energy, mood and emotions from the experience of an Earth Angel so they can be more successful in life.
I thought that was incomplete. I teach a course on the subject, so this book was part of my research. For more techniques and tools than is in included in this book, you can get free training at my Sacred Armor sitet
