You will see that you can trust your inner knowing, and you will be invited to tap into your intuitive gifts and magic. Through these insights, you will experience the truth of your soul. The Soul Path oracle deck was created for seekers, wanderers, storytellers, mystics, outcasts, and rebels — and the shy, serious, and curious. This deck was created for YOU!"
Terra first came into our attention when we started carrying her oracle deck, but since we started following her and learning more about Terra she offers so much more than her Soul Path oracle!
Terra is a Spiritual Advisor, Mentor, Best Selling Author, and Creatrix of the indie deck Soul Path Oracle, offering insight & inspiration for the soul’s journey.
"She assists people in aligning with their Soul’s purpose and potential for this life, encouraging clients to go within to discover the truth of who they are and tap into their personal power through a spiritual connection. Terra’s counselling skills paired with intuitive abilities offers a Psychospiritual approach to self-discovery and transformation."
We had the pleasure of chatting with Terra about her oracle deck, but also about her spiritual path and her offerings!
Gaia: Terra, tell us about yourself.
Terra: I have been intuitive since I was a child, however it was not something I always understood. One thing that has been a constant in my life is the strong desire I have to help others; I previously worked in social services for 7 years; primarily with high-risk youth, marketing & public relations within the music industry, and customer service at event venues. My own healing journey rekindled my love and passion for helping people in a soul-nourishing way and lead me back home to myself in my heart and the metaphysical world.
I love to dance! Movement feels liberating and an expression from the soul. I was an alternative performance artist and I am really looking forward to getting back into other avenues of performance art to have that form of artistic expression again!
Gaia: We were first introduced to you by carrying your Soul Path Oracle deck here at Gaia. What made you decide to create a deck of your own?
Terra: Tarot was my first love, I was very fascinated with the occult as a young child and explored pagan principles in elementary school…now when I think about it, it feels funny and strange to me what books were available in the library and that I had access to in an elementary school. The Internet was not really a thing back then.
Junior high is when I first started falling in love with tarot and throughout the years worked with many divination tools. Creating Soul Path Oracle was a dream come true! It is another way to support people in accessing their inner wisdom and trusting their intuition. That is why I created it.
Gaia: Why did you choose the name ‘Soul Path’ for your oracle cards?
Terra: To be quite honest the name is not something I spent a lot of time thinking about or choosing. The deck chose it’s name and there was no other name for it, it just was. Soul Path Oracle was created to be a faithful companion to the curious heart and offer support for soul’s journey.
Gaia: What were the main sources of inspiration for the themes are your deck? Are there any specific spiritual belief systems or philosophies that deck is influenced by the most?
Terra: There are many spiritual practices and ideologies that I resonate with and have inspired this deck and I would say the love and honour for the Earth, the cosmos and the universal energies of creation flow through this deck. The deck is separated into four different categories: Pathways, Spirit, Journey, and Energy. Pathways is based on the directions found in many Native American traditions, as well as alternate planes of existence. Spirit is associated with archetypal themes and spiritual allies to help you step into your personal sovereignty and feel empowered. Journey reminds us that it’s not about the destination; it’s about the journey and is intended to guide you through life’s transitions. Energy includes the seven main chakras and four additional energetic vortices. When you become familiar with the chakra system and how it functions, you have a map to see how you are functioning internally and how in turn that affects your external world.
Gaia: Can you tell us more about Heather Brewster who illustrated your deck? How did you meet? How did you know she was the right one for the job?
Terra: I am so grateful to know Heather! Sometimes I honestly wonder if she a real person, or an angel in disguise. She is so sweet, kind, caring and any project I have ever worked with her on we have been so in tune and she can bring my dream or vision into an impactful representation!
I believe I found her work through another oracle deck and hired her to do some projects for my courses and when the deck was being created and I was starting to ponder who the artist would be, I knew it was Heather. When you know, you know. This deck is not just “my” deck. She is a HUGE part of it and I celebrate her and am grateful for her and this co-creation.
Gaia: Which card do you resonate most with in your deck?
Terra: That is a hard one, however I would have to say from an image perspective it would be Crossroads; that was one of the very first cards Heather designed and has always held a special place in my heart and for the messages. The Record Keepers for the activation because it guides you into your Akashic Records. There are so many amazing ones and are all powerful in their own way.
Gaia: I was reading on your website bio that not only are you a creator of this oracle deck but offer other services as an Intuitive Guide. Can you tell us a little bit more about what you offer?
Terra: My business has evolved so much over the past year and I am providing more high-level support through 1:1 mentorship. I have also added a year long group mentorship program for women who are looking for deeper levels of heart-based living and unapologetic authentic expression.
Gaia: What is entailed in your Akashic Record Training program?
Terra: I have two different levels of Akashic Records training. The first course Soul Guided is focused on you and your own healing journey. You will learn how to access your own personal Akashic Records to bring about growth and transformation in current life situations, past life healing and empowerment as well as becoming a master creator in the Akashic Field.
The second course Soul Guide, is where you will learn how to access the Akashic Records for others, for personal and professional purposes. You will be given techniques to help support others on their healing journeys, have group dyad practices and become a certified Soul Guide Akashic Records Practitioner.
Gaia: Besides literal services, what do you think you offer as a healing practitioner to people you are assisting on their healing journey?
Terra: I believe I offer clients hope, for what is possible, and encouragement along the way. I am also quite active on social media (primarily Instagram) and like to use that platform to share insight and inspiration and to provide resources to clients and the community there. I also have a monthly newsletter that provides resources for self-reflection.
Gaia: What is your mission on Earth?
Terra: My mission here on Earth is to inspire and encourage others to remember who they are beyond time and space, by making the journey back home to the heart. The path of the heart will reawaken you to the truth of your divinity and your existence here as that expression & embodiment of the divine.
Gaia: What have you learned about yourself by working with others on their healing?
Terra: Life can bring so many ups and downs, however there is an innate drive to push through and survive and I feel honoured to witness the transformation that can take place when working with others and have been shown that anything is possible and discovered my biggest passion is to empower others to become their own healer.
Gaia: What is your sun sign and do you feel you relate to it? If you know what your moon and ascendant signs are, do you feel like they reflect in your personality?
Terra: I have an Aquarius sun & moon and Virgo rising! I would say yes, yes and yes! I must admit sometimes my Virgo traits get on my nerves, but it is a nice balance to have with the double Aquarius.
Gaia: Tell us about more about the readings you offer and other products or services you offer?
Terra: I offer Akashic Records Readings, 12 month forecast tarot readings and Beyond Quantum Healing Hypnosis session. I provide sound healing sessions and group sound alchemy ceremonies using planetary gongs, crystal singing bowls and other sacred sound healing instruments, I also have an online community and monthly subscription called Soul Path Power, where we meet 4 times a month and do Full Moon and New Moon ceremonies, group readings and guided journeys.
Gaia: Where can we find more information about accessing your products and services?
Terra: You can find more information about myself and my services and products on my website. www.heart2heartjourney.com
Gaia: Are there any other personal spiritual practices you have? Do you mind sharing about them?
Terra: My spiritual practice is deeply rooted in the path of the heart and entering into heart coherence. Sound healing, meditation and heart activations are my go-to!
Gaia: Are there any spiritual philosophies, beliefs or paths you are drawn to that you would like to learn more about?
Terra: I am a stargazing dreamer and seeking to uncover the mysteries of the universe. I am intrigued by anything that has to do with our galactic history and comic connections.
Gaia: How do you think you have grown as a person in the last year?
Terra: I have learned my limitations, boundaries and what is truly important to me.
Gaia: What is one thing you would like to grow about yourself in 2022?
Terra: In 2022 I am devoting more time for myself to rest, be still and receive.
Gaia: What would be in your shopping bag at Gaia Rising?
Terra: Candles, incense & gemstone jewelry! Maybe a deck or two…I love oracle and tarot cards lol
"International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women - while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender equality." - https://www.internationalwomensday.com/
International Women's Day is Sunday, March 8th! In celebration, all Goddess themed statuary, books, decks & jewellery are 15 % OFF starting Friday, March 6th through to Sunday, March 8th!
The Divine Feminine is manifested through many different expressions & forms. Let us celebrate the Goddess and explore her through some of her incarnations.
KALI - Destroyer Goddess
Kali, the Hindu goddess of death is often associated with sexuality and violence but is also considered a strong mother-figure. Kali’s name comes from the Sanskrit meaning ‘she who is black’ or ‘she who is death’. Kali teaches us about the impermanence of life, but how beautiful that is. It is important that we do not fear death for it is simply a new beginning. This expression of Divine Feminine speaks to the expression of independence, power and not putting up with any BS!
KUAN YIN- Goddess of Compassion
A Goddess highly revered in many Asian countries including Japan, Korea, China, Thailand & Vietnam, Kuan Yin is the yielding and loving mother goddess. In Chinese Buddhism she considered to be Bodhisattva (being of bodhi or enlightenment) who is destined to become a Buddha but has foregone the bliss of Nirvana with a vow to save all children of God. She is the protector of women and through this expression we are taught to hold compassion, mercy and empathy high in our priorities.
BRIGID - Goddess of Hearth & Warfare
Brigid is a female deity of pre-Christian Ireland. Goddess of fire, hearth and warfare her soldiers were known as "Brigands". She is also known to be a patron goddess of spring, childbirth, fertility and it is said that she leans over every cradle. Strongly associated with Poets and inspiration one could say she sparks the fire of our creative nature. Fun fact: Saint Brigid shares many of the Goddess Brigid's attributes and her feast day on 1 February was originally a pagan festival known as Imbolc marking the beginning of spring.
Happy International Women's Day! May we acknowledge the Goddess in everyone!
