So. you’ve decided that you want to start using Oracle Cards or Angel Cards or Any Cards to help support your intuition. I’m so excited for you! You are about to embark upon a journey that will only unleash the power held deep within you. But, how do you choose an Oracle Card Deck that will best support you?
There are so many decks of cards out there to choose from. How you choose one that will best support you is difficult. There are angel decks, goddess decks, specific angel decks, animal totem decks, traditional tarot decks, celtic decks, abundance decks, gypsy decks, spirit decks, wicca cards, Guides Oracle cards,i could go on and on! Lions and Tigers and Bears Oh my!!!
I think it’s great! Because, Choosing an Oracle Deck is really an exercise in tapping into your inner wisdom.
You want to choose a deck that has pictures that will resonate with you. If you are an animal person, an animal deck might be a great choice. If you love angels, an angel deck will connect with you. If you lean toward psychic phenomenon, a deck based on your psychic intuition will support you. What you don’t want to do is get a deck that doesn’t draw you in. When I first became intrigued with cards, I purchased a traditional wider raite tarot card deck. I hardly ever used them because the back of the cards was black and all those swords did not resonate with me!
Do you choose an Oracle Deck that has affirmations or guiding words on it or not? Many decks have affirmations and guiding words on them. Many decks do not. You may want to choose one with words on it that support the guidance you will receive from within. You may not. I find that this is completely a personal preference. I actually have one deck that was first published without the affirmations on it and the same deck (published later) that has them printed on it. And, I choose which one’s to draw from based on how open I am to messages on that particular day. If I am very open, I choose the one’s without the affirmation as I will be able to receive that information easily. If I am having a challenging day and need further support, I will choose the deck with the affirmations on it to get the additional guidance I need. I
One of the best ways to choose an Oracle Deck is to go to a metaphysical store or store that carries a large selection and hand hold many of them. The best choices for you come from holding and seeing the cards prior to the purchase. Do they bring your energy UP or do they bring your energy DOWN. The deck that you lean into and your energy is raised will be the best for you. Blindly purchasing them on-line before doing this can lead to purchases that are not the best choice for you. I once went to a friend’s home who had well over 50 different decks. It was WONDERFUL. I discovered an array that I resonated with and shop for new decks still from that experience!
