Oracle decks * offer a simple, yet effective form of divination that requires no specific knowledge or skill set. They are designed to be easy to use, yet provide lots of information and insights in any situation. When you pull an oracle card, it will give you insights into the situation, event, your emotions or hidden aspects. I like to use oracle cards following shamanic or energy healing work, as they often provide an additional perspective, layer or confirmation to the work you have just completed. Shamanic inspired oracle decks * connect with the energies of shamanic practice. This may be specific shamanic teachings, principles, power animals, the elements etc. You do not need to be a shaman to use shamanic oracle card decks though as they pull on a wide range of different imagery, which will still inspire you. I have selected the following recommended shamanic oracle decks as I like the illustrations, concepts, and energies that come through the cards.
The Spirit Animal Oracle * by Colette Baron Reid * has exquisite imagery, mixed with symbolism, that brings each card of this 68-card deck to life. Each card represents a specific spirit animal, with its meaning, influence and energy. The illustrations bring new levels of communication and understanding to the card that you draw, giving you a rich tapestry of information. I love The Spirit Animal Oracle as it is well created, but also the energies of each card are so loving, warm and deeply connected with spirit. This is an excellent oracle deck to use regularly.
The Shamanic Medicine Oracle Cards * by Barbara Meiklejohn-Free, Yuri Leitch and Flavia Kate Peters is a profoundly illustrated shamanic oracle card deck that brings to life the teachings and medicine of shamanic insights. Each card details an aspect of shamanic perspective that brings the energies associated with them to you in a specific and clear way. If you are actively working on your shamanic path and already have some working knowledge, this oracle card deck would be ideal.
The Shaman's Oracle: Oracle Cards for Ancient Wisdom and Guidance * by John Matthews * is a profoundly creative shamanic oracle deck that connects with the more earthy, primordial aspects of self. This exceptionally well-illustrated shamanic oracle deck combines symbolism and mystic depth to bring the meaning and energies to you in a very personal way. I like how each card brings something new for each moment you use the oracle cards. Often the information jumps forward compellingly, leaving little to the imagination. If you like direct messages, this oracle deck may be for you.
The Shamanic Healing Oracle Cards * by Michelle A. Motuzas * is a deep and intriguingly illustrated 44-card shamanic oracle deck. The main focus of this beautiful deck is all about revealing what is holding you back in life and proving solutions. The insights gained may help reduce and heal fear and unhelpful beliefs, bringing you back to a whole state. Each card has an illustrated shamanic inspired imagery that connects deeply with your subconscious mind. This depth of connection aims to bring to light unhelpful thoughts and views that you may not even be aware are causing issues in your life. I love the concept of this oracle card deck and find it very healing and inspiring. I recommend this shamanic inspired oracle card deck for anyone wanting to dig deep within to heal and move forward.
The Native Spirit Oracle Cards * by Denise Linn * is a little different to the other shamanic card decks, in that each card uses actual images of nature, rather than illustrations. Each image is expertly chosen to represent perfectly the energies associated with each card meaning. The Native Spirit Oracle Cards focus on the inspirational side of life, even the cards that may be selected under challenging moments or times in your life. Reminding you that spirit is always with you. This shamanic inspired oracle card deck is an excellent choice for anyone who prefers inspirational images rather than symbolic illustrations.
The Medicine Cards: The Discovery of Power Through the Ways of Animals * by Jamie Sams * defines what animal medicine is all about - rich, detailed information provided in a deceptively simple way. When you spend time with a card drawn from this deck, you will be amazed at just how much information you can gain from the beautiful illustrations. You not only have the information from the animal itself, but also the symbology of the dream catcher on each card. I love the deceptively simple way these profound images bring in any situation you may use the cards.
The Wisdom Keepers Oracle Deck * by Rosy Aronson PhD * is a glorious, richly coloured and illustrated oracle card deck that brings the energies associated with each card alive. Each of the 65-cards represents an exquisitely detailed and expressive face. The faces are the keepers of love and wisdom, with each face expressing the energies of the emotions, experiences and stories of each person in a compelling way. While not strictly a shamanic card deck, I love that each card can elicit an emotion that other card decks don't seem to be able to reach. If you love people watching and learning from wise, inspirational people (wisdom keepers), you will love this card deck. I highly recommend it.
The recommended shamanic oracle decks are a selection of the shamanic inspired oracle decks that I think stand out. They offer some exciting ways to not only receive information but also strengthen your connections with your shamanic practice.
