Divine Dog Wisdom Cards

Divine Dog Wisdom Cards

Divine Dog Wisdom Cards are so much fun and eerily prescient.

Divinatory Decks aren’t new to me

I’m not a newbie when it comes to things mystical or metaphysical. For more than a decade I’ve been reading Tarot and hands and dabbling in things like numerology, astrology and Lenormand. I’m also a meditator and yoga loving gal. I tell you this so you know I’ve been around the block a few times with various Oracle and Wisdom card decks.

The Divine Dog Wisdom Cards deck was a surprise Christmas gift from one of my sisters and I am so delighted it’s hard to write this post in a logical fashion!

62 cards of beautiful dog artwork have words with deep meaning on them. I’ve been picking a card a day and use the day’s card to reflect on how I want my day to go, and to review what’s currently happening in my life.

Randy Crutcher, Barb Horn & Teresa Shishim

The deck is created by Randy Crutcher, a therapist and personal and professional development coach (among other things) and Barb Horn (a self-described dog-whisperer and the founder of All Embracing Change community). Teresa Shishim is the divine Illustrator and is the founder of Yoka Design in Colorado.

Together these three have a tool that’s appealing to all – whether you’re into oracle decks or not.

Feeling Fearful?

For instance, on a recent day I pulled the Fear card. As much as I didn’t want to admit it I had been a bit fearful – about things completely out of my control. Actually, the fear was driving me mad!

Here’s part of the wisdom

…it’s important for you to be aware and know the difference between what is real and present and what is simply hounding you from your past.

You note that use of “hounding” don’t you? The authors do a superb job of bringing in dog-related lingo without being groan-worthy.

Each card has an accompanying 2 pages in the booklet. Each cover “What it Means if you Fetched this Card Today” and “Another Bone to Chew On” which has some practical insight for applying the wisdom in your daily life. That’s a really nice touch and something that makes sense coming from a coach.

This weekend I’m going to try out a few different “spreads” using the deck and I’ll let you know how that turns out too.
