Happy Sunday, LiliBeaners! Hope you all filled your weekends with lots of laughter
and happy moments. If it was a rough one, take heart. Tomorrow starts a new week!
For me, Sunday is my day to slow down and reflect. It’s a good day to get quiet and
get connected with my soul and the stars above. One of my favorite ways to do that
is by working with one of the many spiritual card decks I own. I have decks on angels and astrology and life paths and soul purposes.
As you all know, I like to ponder on ideas and these cards all give me great ideas to ponder on. They open my mind and often shift my perception in ways I wouldn’t have expected.
Recently, I received a complimentary set of cards from Tori Hartman – Chakra Wisdom Oracle cards. In return for this lovely gift, I agreed to write a review on them. Mind you, I wasn’t asked to give a good review…just a review. I’m happy to say though, I love the cards!
By now, you might be thinking…Chak-who Wisdom what?
Good question! 😉 I’ve got to get a little woo-woo to explain.
Chakras are energy points in our body that are believed to tie the body and consciousness together. It is commonly accepted that there are 7 main chakras and each chakra corresponds to a specific color. Chakras follow the colors of the rainbow. So pretty and so powerful. Tori explains each one in detail in the guidebook included with the cards. These explanations are quite insightful and thought-provoking. I would highly recommend reading through them as you get started with the cards.
Having done that myself, I wasn’t surprised at all when the first card I pulled was “Complacency” – in the Red family aka the Root Chakra. As the guidebook states, “The root chakra cards show us a new way to bring our dreams to fruition.” Um…yes, please!
The inspirational message of the “Complacency” card starts with “This is a warning not to give up!” Great message to receive and one I sincerely needed to hear in the moment I pulled that card.
The Chakra Wisdom Oracle deck is full of messages like these – each related to different areas or energy centers of our lives. I pulled Complacency but maybe you’ll pull the Release card if you need inspiration to help you let go and move forward. Or maybe the Prayer card if you need inspiration on how to live in active prayer.
Each description in the guidebook includes a one-sentence tag line to help you focus in on the message of the card, a short fable, an inspirational passage, questions to ask yourself, key ideas and keywords related to the card and a meditation at the bottom.
I especially love the fables. They’re folksy and charming and they bring the cards to life. And the artwork done by Gretchen Raisch-Baskin fits so well with the vibe of the deck.
These cards truly are a beautiful addition to my collection. If you love colors and energy and are looking for some mind-opening inspirations, check them out for yourselves at Tori’s website here. You can do an online reading for free and get a feel for what they’re all about.
While you’re off doing that, I’m going to get quiet and get connected and get ready for the week ahead. Hope you all do the same!
Until next time, my friends… ♡
