This Soul’s Journey Lesson Cards are all about spiritual lessons we learn on our life path here on Earth and can be used to receive guidance from our Higher Selves and the Universe. So, how can we be guided by this oracle deck, and is it worth buying?
What Is An Oracle Deck?
I love oracle decks because they can be about anything in the world! Like Tarot, they are used to guide us spiritually. However, unlike Tarot, they don’t really follow any rules. The meanings of the cards and what messages they send are all down to the creator of the deck.
Oracle decks allow us to understand ourselves and our connection with the universe around us. They do this in their own unique way, and they all aim to guide us on our journey in life.
What Are the soul’s journey lesson cards?
These cards aim to guide us through life by reflecting on the lessons that we learn along the way. The deck gives us information on how we can receive celestial direction and grow.
I really like how the Soul’s Journey Lesson cards are all about how we can direct our energy and learn soulful wisdom. They are a deck about moving forward and learning from our path in life.
The Soul’s Journey Lesson Cards Review
Okay, now on to the review! I was quite excited about this deck at first because I really like the colors and patterns. When I got my hands on the deck, I was pretty happy about the quality of the box that the cards are contained in. As I have loads of decks, I often will store them in their box.
The box itself is simple. It is bright blue in color with a mandala pattern on it. This simplicity follows through the deck, and I know that some people are not a fan of it. I understand this because there are so many Tarot and oracle decks that are just utterly stunning. There is a lot of competition out there, and something this simple might not stand out.
The Soul’s Journey Lesson Cards come with a small guidebook that is printed in black and white. It fits in the box and contains information about the spiritual lessons each card represents, accompanied by a short affirmation.
The guidebook really isn’t that impressive and I feel that it falls short. Again, when you compare this oracle deck to others out there, it does feel as if something is missing. The guidebook is fine, but that is just it. Fine.
However, the affirmations in the guidebook are pretty nice to read and do help you feel guided in life.
The card stock quality is on par with other decks published by Hay House. The cards are quite thick and have a glossy finish with gilded edges. They are wide and of medium size, so quite nice to shuffle and use in spreads.
Cards in a brand new deck may get stuck together, but after separating them manually, shuffling becomes easier.
I do like the pattern on the back of the cards and the colors and mandala patterns on each card. It does feel as if the imagery reflects the meaning of each specific card and most are pretty nice to look at.
The messages on the cards are clear, thus meaning this oracle deck is easy to use. Each card has the main word on it and a message of affirmation. It might be a good deck for those of us who like to pick a card out of a deck each morning to give us guidance for the day ahead.
I must point out that some cards have messages such as Death, Envy, Loneliness, and Worry. I can see some readers finding this negative and unsettling, even though the actual messages of the cards teach us how to accept these concepts as part of our existence in a world of duality.
To be honest, the Soul’s Journey Lesson Cards do fall a bit short for me. I understand what they are about, and I like the idea of using what happens in our lives to guide us and teach us lessons. However, I think the energy of this deck just had something missing. It definitely could be deeper, with a more interesting guidebook and explanations of each card.
Plus, the images and colors on the deck aren’t that great. Yes, they are nice, but the patterns and imagery could have been explored so much more!
As I mentioned before, I was pretty excited about the Soul’s Journey Lesson cards. However, I will admit that I was pretty disappointed by this deck when I began to use it. The energy and depth of the deck really fall short, and I feel as if there is something missing.
The Soul’s Journey Lesson cards feel as if they weren’t thought out that well, and maybe they were a bit rushed. They lack detail and depth to which I am so used to when it comes to oracle cards.
Perhaps I am being too harsh as I know there are so many people that do love this deck! What do you guys think? Are you a fan of the Soul’s Journey Lesson cards?
