Sue & Amanda created the Soul Guidance Oracle Deck to help those reading from their cards to develop self awareness and assist in their spiritual growth. Their goal is to help guide the collective on a beautiful, joyful journey.
In this 52 card deck and intuitive guide, they have integrated animals with geometric shapes, watercolors and numerology to help readers develop their intuition, consciousness, ascension and spiritual guidance.
We have had the total honour of carrying their Soul Guidance Oracle deck here at Gaia Rising! Please enjoy our interview with Sue and Amanda as we learn more about them and their oracle deck!
Gaia: Hi Sue! It is such a pleasure to be interviewing you. Thank you for providing some answers for Amanda as she is not present for the interview! Tell us a bit about yourself!
Sue: I grew up in a small town in Saskatchewan on a Ranch. Now living in Alberta. I am married, I have 2 daughters & 2 stepsons. My biggest interests are anything Spiritual as well as being in nature, surrounded by trees and the mountains. I am an Empath and Channeler. I use these gifts to help guide others and myself to co-create an authentic life.
Gaia: What inspired you to create the ‘Soul Guidance Oracle’?
Sue: I kept getting messages that I would be working with someone soon. I trusted that it will happen when the time is right. Then Amanda came over to my place one day and she said, "We should create our own deck one day, it would be so amazing." And at that moment I received the message- this was the one and it felt right. We then started researching and creating. It happened very fast and was very easy. Everything flowed easily.
Gaia: Can you tell us about the other creator on this deck, Amanda Robin?
Sue: Amanda is a good friend. She is a powerfully intuitive Medium reader and has been stepping into her gifts in bigger ways.
Gaia: What kinds of things influenced the oracle deck? I notice you have mostly animals as symbols in the deck, what is the inspiration behind?
Sue: While Amanda and I were collaborating, we talked a lot about each of our visions and she is a lover of Spirit Animals, as am I. We decided this would be our theme as well as geometric shapes for the animals as we both felt there were not many decks created with these shapes. As with any deck the numbers were a big part of our creation as well. Then what came next for us was watercolors and it just kept flowing from there.
Gaia: Sue, tell us which 3 cards resonate with you most in the deck and why?
Sue: 3 cards that influence me, that’s a tough one - I love all of them.
I love the Butterfly - I am all about new beginnings, growth and creating more.
Pink flamingo is another favorite- creating a solid foundation. I feel without creating a foundation it is hard to build something that can withstand the forces that are put upon each one of us
Bee - Community & Dedication - I love the Bee because I feel we need community- even a small one, that are loyal and a like minded tribe. For support and space for each of us to grow and share our love.
Bat - Conquer Your Fears- I feel we need to step out of our fears and step past our ego to create a life we desire. It often creates more than we could ever imagine.
The deck as a whole. I love the colors and animals of each of the Cards as they symbolize so much for the reader.
Amanda’s favorites are:
Owl - Knowing Your Inner Purpose. This is a beautiful message to go inside and truly process where we are in our journey. What is it that we aspire to be for our souls’ purpose?
Tiger - Time to Take a Journey. I love this card as it is a sign of a shift coming. The numerology is 4 on this card. Dedicated to your foundations, organization, structure and your angels are around supporting your movement.
Unicorn - Magickal Wonders Await. What’s not to love about this card? It’s believing that anything is possible. New doors opening, creation and adventure. Mystic, and endless possibilities.
Gaia: Are there other decks that you love besides your own that you would suggest to people who use oracle decks? Which ones are your favourite?
Sue: Wow this is a tough question because I do have so many decks. I am energetically connected to so many.
A few of my favorites are:
Natures Whispers by Angela Hartfield & Josephine Wale - I love the artwork and all the beautiful messages in the pictures. There are so many.
Heal Yourself - Inna Segal - I work with many people to help them see within to heal and this deck is a great guide to look within.
I am an Angel lover and Metatron is a huge guide for me- I also love the Archangel Metatron - Self Mastery Oracle by Amanda Ellis
Mystical Shaman Oracle by Alberto Villoldo, Colette Baron-Reid, Marcela Lobos
Light Seers Tarot by Chris-Ann. This was the first deck of Tarot that I could easily connect with. Beautiful artwork that I could easily connect with intuitively and the meanings behind each card truly resonated with me during connection to my deck.
The Spirit Animal Oracle by Collette Baron-Reid is one of my favourite animal decks. The detailed artwork and messages on the cards bring me much joy to read with.
And along with Sue I love Natures Whispers by Angela Hartfield & Josephine Wall. The imagery and intuitive feelings I get from these cards are magical. These are definitely a go too for me.
