Animal Wisdom Oracle
Daily Guidance Channelled from the Animal Kingdom © Clare Metcalf
A comprehensive boxed deck of 36 cards plus an instruction card.
This deck was inspired by and based on actual conversations with the animals represented in the individual images. Every species I have had the honour of working with personally, spending time getting to know and form eternal relationships with.
Each card carries a brief and pertinent message from the animal represented – not from me – (I truly had to step out of my own ego to let the animals speak for themselves just like in a communication session with me, so there’s no clever words from me in there! Likewise, and unlike most other oracle decks there is no reliance on traditional knowledge of the species, folklore etc. The words come from the individual animal represented in the photo.)
I asked each individual animal what message, advice or wisdom they wished to share with humans, and that’s exactly what is written. (Some even took me by surprise!)
This message can be incorporated into your daily meditation or mantra.
The cards can also be used if you have questions or concerns about your own animal friends – who better to ask than the Animal Kingdom?
The cards began to fall naturally into four sub-sets, which became represented by their background colours and are all aligned with Colour Therapy principles.
The Sub-Deck themes are: Joy, Love, Guidance and Wisdom.
Additionally each card incorporates the Flower of Life, a design that combines all the elements of sacred geometry, and reflects the perfection, harmony and interconnectedness of all living things.
However the animals had so much more to say on the subject than just one brief sentence!
Hence the next task was to produce:
Further Animal Wisdom
A Companion to Animal Wisdom Oracle Deck © Clare Metcalf
A beautiful, glossy book which features every card and message, with an expanded explanation of the meaning and containing further wisdom from the animals. There is also additional information about the animal species represented and some personal anecdotes about encounters with animals I personally know.
The book also explains the background to the creation of the deck, and offers advice including how to prepare yourself and your space before using the deck.
Each order of the Animal Wisdom Oracle Deck includes this companion book FREE!
Animal Wisdom Oracle Limited Edition Collectors Set
Many people use Oracle Decks, choose a card, feel affected by it for a few moments but then life simply takes over and the message is forgotten. This felt like it could almost be seen as dismissing the wisdom the animals have generously shared with us; but how best to access and retain their daily message? By using our other senses of course! With my other experience, qualifications and training, my mind began to devise additional tools to help you stay connected to the wisdom of the animals in your daily life.
Oracle Aromas © Clare Metcalf
As a result I have created a set of four Oracle Aromas, my own personal blends of organic Essential Oils specially selected and blended to complement the themes of the sub-decks and to induce the emotions (and perhaps any associated healing needed) featured in them. So they can elicit feelings of joy; help us feel and remember we are loved; to connect to inner wisdom and spiritual guidance.
I was even blessed to find bottles in the corresponding sub-deck colours to contain them! Senses of Sight and Smell ignited together!
You receive all four unique Oracle Aroma blends of Joy, Love, Guidance and Wisdom and the beautiful bottles come in a specially labelled storage box.
How to use Oracle Aromas
Each day after you have drawn your card and focussed on the message, you can then select the corresponding oil blend to wear or carry with you as a constant reminder of the message your new animal friend wished to share with you today! So you don’t need to choose an oil yourself – the animal has chosen the blend you need!
- Our sense of smell is incredibly sensitive and aromas are evocative, cleansing, nurturing and healing.
- They promote a sense of mindfulness by drawing our attention back to the message of the day every time we breathe in the aroma.
- Plant-based oils reconnect us with Nature even when circumstances mean we can’t physically be OUT in Nature.
- Using oils can become a self-care ritual in itself.
I am aware that some people don’t want to or are unable to wear fragrance on their skin every day, so I needed a vehicle for the aromas so you could still access them without them necessarily being on your skin.
Oracle Aromas Bracelets © Clare Metcalf
What better than a beautiful bracelet made with genuine gemstones including Amethyst, Aventurine, Sodalite, Jasper, Rose Quartz and more which also help bring Joy, Love, Guidance and Wisdom into your day.
The gemstones are interspersed with colour-coded lava stone beads which absorb the oils so you can stay connected to your message all day, (and being colour-coded means you can keep each colour for one particular aroma, so you don’t end up blending the scents – though if you want to that’s fine, there are no strict rules in their usage.
The bracelets also carry my trademark Purple Paw charm (which represents “Until They All Have a Home – meaning I will work tirelessly to raise awareness and help rescues until all shelter animals have a home of their own.)
Even if you can’t wear jewellery every day, you can carry them in a pocket or bag, place them on your altar during meditation, sleep with them under your pillow or even hang them from your rear-view mirror for a delicious waft and reminder of your message from the animals!
The Limited Edition Set consists of:
Animal Wisdom Oracle Cards
Further Animal Wisdom Book
Oracle Aromas (4 aromas in travel box)
Oracle Aromas Bracelet
And finally, I wanted to imbue all of these items – deck, book, oils and bracelet with a deeper level of spirituality not found elsewhere, so I took them to my most magical place – SEDONA, Arizona, so they could absorb the amazing and sacred vortex energy!
They came with me on every hike to every favourite vortex, sacred site and of course walks among my beloved trees whose own energy infused them.
I turned the prayer wheel and carried them three times round the Stupa as I prayed for peace to every living creature.
They climbed rocks, descended into favourite canyons and walked alongside rivers and streams.
