Are Oracle Cards Good for Our Mental Health?

Hey guys, it’s Penny here!

I’ve been wanting to type something about oracle cards and how they changed my life, but I didn’t know what to write exactly. So, after a lot of brainstorming, I wanted to write down my experience with oracle cards and the hidden power they hold.

First of all, let me introduce what oracle cards are.

Oracle cards can sometimes be thought of as ”tarot cards”, but in fact they are not. They are for me, more indirect than tarot cards.

They require more thinking and asking yourself ”What could this mean in this situation?”

The use of them might be similar, but oracle cards are used to get instant messages. They are usually uplifting, and the message is determined by you and your viewpoint. They are customizable, and are given meaning by the user.

Usually, oracle cards are accompanied by a little guidebook. In this book, there are usually instructions on how you can ask certain questions, messages behind cards, and how you can prepare yourself and you can protect your energy field before starting the reading.

There are lots of oracle cards. My first deck was ”Work Your Light” deck. I’m in love with this deck. The messages, illustrations are beyond breath-taking and beautiful. The decks can come in 100s, 50s or 44s.

Even if you look at a random card from this deck, you will definitely experience an immense awakening.

When you are aligned with your cards, this state of awakening will continue during your everyday life. You will feel attuned to the symbols. For example, after starting my inner self journey and start using oracle cards, a white feather I saw on the street during my daily walk became more meaningful to me. I started seeing repeating numbers whenever I thought of a certain situation or a person.

One day, I remember I pulled the ”Crumbling” card from my deck( It can be the equivalent of tarot card ”The Tower”) Two days later, I experienced an epiphany. It was definitely the ”crumbling” of a situation. I was very shocked!

So, why oracle cards can be beneficial for our mental health?

Firstly, they carry uplifting messages. If you start your day with these messages, you will definitely feel inspired.

Secondly, you will feel more connected with your Higher Self. Your vision of future will be clearer. Personally, whenever I feel like I’m stuck and unable to make a decision, I turn to my oracle cards. They are always there to make me hear my soul’s true calling.

Thirdly, you will feel more relaxed. Whenever you are aligned with your true self and can hear your soul’s guidance, you will feel more in the flow. The cards will help you to listen your intuition.

The key thing with oracle cards is to use them for navigation rather than a determination for a certain topic. The cards reveal your subconscious to you, which according to Jung, is where our true destiny lies. Don’t forget the choice is always yours and and you don’t need to do what the cards are saying, there is always the freedom of free will.

Just take the message if it resonates with you.

Let’s meet in the comments! Are you using oracle cards for guidance?

  2. Love this so much! What’s your favorite oracle for the moment? I like the Osho one a lot, although I never had it personally. The only oracle I had was one by Doreen Virtue. It was amazing how the cards would speak out so clearly. I do believe they are useful channels from what we keep storing and reverting to the unconscious and subconscious. I totally agree with you and I also believe they can have a positive impact on mental health! xx

  4. I’ve never tried oracle cards before but have been thinking about it for a while! Part of me is scared of the messages I would receive, another part of me doesn’t even know where to begin. But it sounds like it has been a great experience for you so I think I will give it a go. Thank you for sharing!

  6. I alternate between pulling daily cards from tarot and oracle decks. It’s definitely a great reflective practice that makes me pause and think. Love the art style of the “Work Your Light” deck–I have the Starchild Tarot which I believe is the same artist!

  11. What lovely cards! The artwork is so pretty. I myself have a set of fairy oracle cards that I particularly love, but I also have a couple of decks of tarot cards that I pull from when in need of guidance. I think just the act of pulling a card helps me feel a little more steady. 🙂
