An Oracle. What is it? It’s defined as a medium through whom advice is sought from the gods. It’s often thought of as a person, (in ancient Greece a priestess and in other cultures a priest), through whom deity is believed to speak.
Oracles offer answers to your thirst for knowing something in the future. But, really, Oracles are a way to tap into your own innate inner wisdom. The wisdom that comes from deep within, that gut instinct, that inner GPS, already know what an Oracle will reveal. But, sometimes, we need a little nudge (or even yes a huge PUSH) toward seeing that knowledge.
In modern times, Oracles come in many different forms. There are mediums, people who see into your future. We use astrology to determine what may lie ahead of us. Card decks are often used to help shine light on your inner wisdom’s truth.
But, in truth, Oracles are simply TOOLS used to shed light on what you already KNOW to be true and offer a lantern to show you which path may best be taken next to bring you to the answer that you seek. See, it’s all about the choices that we make. Which path, which step to be taken next ~ be that what to order off a menu for dinner, what to wear or whether to embark on a relationship ~ personal or business ~ are choices to be made ~ learned from in both defeat and celebration.
Oracle decks are convenient ways to ask divine guidance and use the meaning of the card to tap into one’s own intuition to find answers whether you use them personally or go to a professional to help support you.
Most of the time, oracles don’t solve problems or offer solutions. But, rather: Using a deck encourages you to go within and find your own answers. This is because what you believe to be true in a card will be very different from another’s interpretation of it. Which of course makes abundant sense, right?
Even the choice of Oracle Deck is a uniquely individual one. Some will relate to angels, some to darker images. Still others will enjoy using animal decks to help guide them toward their inner wisdom.
Oracles, no matter what kind, are a source of divine communication. A way to offer light to you when you are in need of having a question answered. What kind of Oracles have you used in your life? (Astrology, mediums, cards, Angel Speak etc) Do you ‘ask’ Oracles often for answers? And, have you learned anything from using them?
