I didn’t know much about the deck to begin with, either than seeing her photos on Facebook with suggestions of stones for different situations. And when I found out she had a website and these oracle cards, I couldn’t resist trying them out. Placed my order and within a week I had it in my hands. Positive side was it isn’t very big, as Jen says herself, about the size of an ordinary deck of playing cards. I chose to order my deck with the additional chakra cards since I know myself too well, if I don’t I will regret it later… so done and happy with it. On the back of each of the seven chakra cards she’s added information on each of the chakras. Just to grab the one that was on top it says on the back: “I know” – Spirituality and Enlightenment“. That is followed by where on the body this chakra it’s located, colors, crystals, essential oils and herbs. She also tell us what parts of our physical body it is connected with, emotional sides and life issues. These cards are the same size as the crystal cards so they fit right into the little box they arrive in.
The crystal cards are 45 in number and each card has a frame in the same color as the chakra it’s associated with. Above the photo of the crystal, that she has excellently thought about having many of the same one since they can look a little different, it’s clearly visible the name of the crystal and at the bottom, with a stripe of light grey, you can find the symbol for the chakra and the element. But then there are some that doesn’t have the usual symbol for elements but rather a circle with all the element colors added. These Jen call Storm or Spirit cards since they belong to all elements. But, how are we supposed to know about how to interpret these crystals if we don’t know very much about them. Well, there is always the use of intuition or the internet, but fear not. She has sent a link to a page where you can download a pdf-file with everything you need to know about the crystals, the elements and chakras. I’m sitting with that and trying to translate it just to make it easier on myself and those who might want to draw a card and find this language a little hard to understand, at least some words. And there is always the days when you have that famous mind fog, you know what that word is, but no matter how you try it’s not there in your own language.
But that isn’t all, there is also some extra cards that give us some ideas about the oracle, why she created them and the crystals on the photos. There is also one that give some ideas of how to use them, one with the chakras and their location on the human body and three cards with some short info about each chakra and two with the elements. Last there is one about Jen herself where she tells us how come she began with crystals and stones to begin with.
When I got them I just had to try them out in some way so I pulled a card at random and found Lapis Lazuli. On the card it says “Seek the Truth”, it’s connected to the crown chakra and the element of air. Then I, naturally, started to look for it in her pdf. Here I could read that it is also connected with the throat chakra and known as the “Stone of Total Awareness”. It will help me see the truth in all situations and enhances intuition and psychic protection. It can be a shield against negative energy and also assist with depression. This isn’t all, but some and then there was this message:
“Look for the truth behind the situation. What is it that you are not currently seeing? Take the time to look at things from all different angles until you find the missing piece of the puzzle. Once you find the truth, everything will start falling into place.”
All crystals have a message and some have an alternative divination meaning too.
I think this oracle will be interesting to get to know, it even made me think of taking out what stones and crystals I had before, and stored away when little one was very young and then I hadn’t any really good place to put them. But now, feeling that it’s time to bring them out again, I’ll see where they could have a place where they will be safe. I know a certain family member who will be excited to see them, touch them and ask about their names. Will be interesting to see if I remember the names for them, some yes, others… probably not.
