Review: Soul Coaching Oracle Cards by Denise Linn

If you are looking for the ideal set of oracle cards to take away on a summer holiday, this is it. Although the title might not be about dream destinations, the new Soul Coaching Oracle Cardsseem to me to be about everything you might hope for if you are heading off for sun, adventure, relaxation and maybe a little soul-searching. Just look at the picture above showing some of the cards and see what I mean.

Inside a radiant solar disc, the images on each card show things I suspect any of us might be yearning for, such as love, healing, transformation and fulfilment. The messages are all positive - but who wants to give valuable luggage space for anything offering doom and gloom?

The way the deck works should be familiar to anyone who has used tarot or oracle cards in the past. You shuffle them and use your instincts to pick one for a daily reading, or more for a fuller spread to answer a specific question. The booklet in the boxed set explains that the cards are intended to help you hear the whisperings of your soul and learn what it is you truly want or what will help you through the situations you face in life. Again, that's pretty much what all tarot and divination decks do, but the clear and easy to follow instructions make this ideal for beginners in my opinion.

Publisher Hay House said: "The Soul Coaching Oracle Cards, by bestselling author and healer Denise Linn, provide a direct connection to the Soul. The card deck and guidebook can be used to give yourself, your loved ones, and your clients remarkably accurate, heartfelt readings ... as well as help you touch the sacred place within. You'll come to understand what your Soul wants you to know about your relationships, your career, your creativity, and even your future. Every card glows with beautiful artwork and a positive message that can help you receive profound spiritual guidance from your higher self!"

For many of us, holiday time is the best opportunity we have to get in touch with our real selves. It is a time when we can do exactly what we want, without having to conform to the habits and routines imposed upon us by work, family and regular society. By using something like a set of oracle cards while we are away, we can make the most of the opportunity to learn even more about what we truly want from life. Perhaps we can even bring back a few ideas to help keep that holiday spirit alive when we come home.

Denise Linn, creator of the Soul Coaching Oracle Cards, has also written the book Soul Coaching: 28 Days to Discover the Real You -as well as being the co-author of The Mystic Cookbook.
