“Healing Hearts is a 50+ card deck of deities including male, female and third/other gendered deities to heal the divine in all of us.”
Simple. And oh so much deeper than it sounds.
There are so many eloquent, beautiful, magical oracle decks out there but so very few that have space for all the faces of the divine.
Each of us contain energies that are masculine, feminine and neither/both, so why settle for a deck that doesn’t allow for these three sides of ourselves?
In the world there are people who fall broadly into each of these categories… so why exclude any of them from seeing themselves mirrored in their magical tools?
I adore the Goddess Oracle decks because they bring us face to face with Goddesses who show us something about our selves and our life path. I despair at them because they limit the divine to only the feminine energies, and, whilst women do need to see themselves as worthy and divine, we also need to see others in the same light. We can only heal ourselves when we heal ourselves together. When the roles for men, and those that do not fit neatly into either box, are clearly given too.
I want to see the power in everyone, regardless of their sex/gender, recognised and expressed in the world in healthy ways.
And I believe in the power of art to do this.
Oracle decks are art that is handled, engaged with, listened to. They are used and integrated into people’s lives. They can act as reminders, guides, inspiration, focal points and anchors in a world that is often unpredictable… and when they contain many faces, they can show us our place with others, not just our own inherent worth but everyone’s worth together.
I suppose the short version is: I want to help heal some of the damage I see. I believe that the divine spirits can reach us through art and help us to heal ourselves and our relationships and that by healing our relationships we heal our connections, communities and the world. That’s why I’m making this deck.
I’m creating a series of posts on Oracle deck making to show the process and inspire those that wish to make their own, to be found here.
