“The Soul Coaching Oracle Cards can help you quiet your mind as they take you on a wondrous voyage of self-discovery. They’ll assist you in clearing inner clutter, thus creating a direct path to your internal universe. You can use these tools to activate your intuition and start realizing your purpose and potential.” – From the companion booklet
Denise Linn, author of 15 books including Soul Coaching, has created a 52-card oracle designed to re-connect individuals with their soul. The soul doesn’t need coaching, says Linn, but persistently tries to help us remember our light, beauty, and radiance. By using the Soul Coaching Oracle Cards, querent will ideally hear—with clarity—the wisdom their Soul wants to impart.
Each glossy card features a sunny yellow background, a colorful encircled image, and a keyword. Some of the cards you’ll find in this deck include:
The 12-page companion booklet to the Soul Coaching Oracle Cards provides a black and white thumbnail of the card as well as the card meaning and message from your Soul. The card keywords are listed alphabetically, making it very easy to find a particular card.
Linn shows readers how to center themselves and prepare for a reading, and gives several spreads for querent to use for themselves or for others.
I’ve consulted this deck several times and found it to be hit and miss in terms of oracular guidance. The cards are lovely and Linn’s wisdom is sound, but sometimes, my card selection didn’t seem relevant at all to a situation—even in hindsight. This is particularly true when doing several one-card readings about a situation that was bothering me—and one in which resolution was dependent upon other parties.
There were times, however, where the card selection provided solace and clarity.
In my opinion, this attractive deck may be better suited as a meditation, affirmation, or inspirational deck rather than an oracle. The Soul Coaching Oracle Cards would be especially good for healers and therapists to give to their clients for encouragement.
