I got my hands on the lovely Postcards from Spirit 52 Card Oracle Deck yesterday. I have been waiting for months for this deck to release, and it is finally in my hands. After yesterday’s filming of this video, I played a little bit more with this deck and I started to connect more with the images and messages.
I am a huge fan of Colette’s decks and particularly very fond of artist Jena DellaGrotaglia’s beautiful artistry. The cover designer for Postcards was Tricia Breidenthal. Jena’s art work is always breathtaking and my only wish was that in this deck, it was a little more pronounced so we can really see the details. I get that the postcards are to appear aged and weathered, but I love Jena’s work so much that I still want to see it pop off the card like in all her other works.
The cards are larger than the standard Hay House size and the box is a sturdy and attractive. The stock is interesting. It is thinner than standard Hay House decks, but it remains to be seen if that is a good thing. The edges are sharp, versus rounded.
I love the concept. In fact, I used the deck last night and called upon my grandmothers to send a message. I loved how easy it was to use the deck and the answers I received were poignant and resonated in a way that I was not expecting (which is a good thing).
The cards can be used for divination, but I think it is primarily for answering those healing questions we have about are we on the right path or what can I work on in myself type of queries.
Be on the lookout for my full deck review video and blog post of this deck, after I’ve played with it for a while, as unboxing videos only shows just a tiny bit of a deck’s potential.
