"Ask Your Guides Oracle Cards” by Sonia Choquette ISBN 978-1-4019-0324-1 both from Hay House
The final days at the end of the year and the first days of the new year are a restorative time in my home. I take a look back at the year just passed and look forward to the year ahead by creating a sort of mandala of my intent. I usually choose cards from one of the various divinatory decks I have to see what guidance they have to offer. Some of those decks have been in my possession for a long time. Lately, I wanted to see what was new in the way of card decks.
The Law of Attraction Cards are made up of excerpts from Abraham’s The Basics of the Law of Attraction. Abraham is "a group consciousness from the non-physical dimension” expressed through Esther Hicks. She and her husband Jerry present workshops in up to 60 cities per year and have published more than 700 Abraham-Hicks books, cassettes, CDs, Videos, and DVDs.
There are 60 cards in the deck with colourful and uplifting illustrations by Kristina Swarner. One of them I picked recently, which is actually helping me write this review, says "By Segment Intending, I Can Expand My Time”. The guidance on the back of the card is about being clear about what you want during each important segment of your day. The intent of the cards is to activate a conscious awareness of the Law of Attraction. Most of the cards are clear enough on their own but if you have any questions, you can check out the information and wide array of materials at www.abraham-hicks.com.
Sonia Choquette’s Ask Your Guides Oracle Cards have been around for a few years but I’ve just discovered them. The 52 cards are accompanied by a guidebook. You can pick a card at random or seek guidance on a given situation. With any cards, it’s fun to be creative and inventive in the way you use them. I shared the deck with my writing group recently and they were quite amazed at how the cards resonated with their present circumstances. It’s always comforting to be reminded of our spirit helpers offering support and guidance. This is my favourite deck of the two. Do check out Sonia Choquette’s work at www.soniachoquette.com.
