Review: Chakra Wisdom Oracle Cards
Chakra Wisdom Oracle Cards:
The complete spiritual toolkit for transforming your life
If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I’m a bit of a tarot and oracle card addict. When I was offered the Chakra Wisdom and Oracle cards by Tori Hartman to review, I jumped at the chance.
Before I tell you about the Chakra Wisdom Oracle cards, I want to tell you about the quality.
I don’t know about you but I hate it when you get excited about a new deck, they arrive and as soon as the cards come out they get chipped. I really dislike poor quality card stock and shoddy boxes.
I did a little happy dance when I took the Chakra Wisdom Oracle cards out of their very solid box and found there was no scrimping and scraping on the quality of the cards either.
Phew! Cards and box are robust. Tick.
The claim on the box that the cards are a ‘complete spiritual toolkit for transforming your life’ is lofty but can you really have a toolkit for transformation in a set of 49-cards?
Whereas many oracle cards really are just gentle sayings or keywords to give you guidance on what’s going on in your life, the Charkra Wisdom Oracle has been created to dig deeper into the hiccups and bumps we all experience in life.
Often we experience reality in ways that are uncomfortable or ‘not working’ right because we have energetic blockages (like in our chakras) or limiting beliefs. And usually we don’t even know they’re there.
This is a deck for soul work and it’s not going to tell you fluffy things you think you want to hear.
It’s going to highlight where you can make improvements so you can make your life run smoother, achieve goals and generally upgrade your life. And the Chakra Wisdom Oracle doesn’t leave you hanging on how you can do this: each card comes with a legend, inspiration, personal inquiry, key ideas, keywords and a short meditation.
Of course, getting a deck and reading the book (with a curious 6-year-old on your knee who had her first lesson on chakras) isn’t going to tell you much about the how the cards read and respond. So I asked on my Facebook page if anyone would like either a love or wealth intention reading (from the spreads at the back of the book) so I could test drive the oracle.
As the reader, I loved the cards.
They’re bright, modern but with enough whimsy to incite a few ‘oohs’ and ‘aaaahs’. There are seven cards for each chakra, making a total of 49 cards.
The book is a further delight. It packs just enough information on both the cards and the chakras so you could pick up the Chakra Wisdom Oracle cards without knowing a thing about chakras. The messages are deep but they’re not stuffy or boring (you won’t be sent off into snoozeville).
But the proof of the reading lays with the client (or yourself, if you’re reading for you). So what did my Chakra Wisdom Oracle card guinea pig, the lovely Carol, have to say?
“Well that could not be more spot on if I wrote it myself Lyn”
Overall, these cards are not for you if you want to just draw a feel-good card each day or want to be told that the elusive tall, dark handsome stranger is going to be knocking on your door next month.
The Chakra Wisdom Oracle cards are perfect if you want to really make changes in your life and are willing to work on blockages and beliefs.
When you get your hands on these lovely cards, let me know what you think!
