The Water Energy
I have always been pulled to the water energy. Ever since I was a little girl, it’s been in my heart. I grew up blocks away from the shores of a big Wisconsin lake. Water has always been close by. As I started to explore oracle cards any that were water related I seemed to be drawn to. However something was always missing. All the oracle decks I found were focused around ocean energy or nautical themes. None of them gave the same energy I felt when you are at Lake Michigan looking out to that horizon that doesn’t end.
Story of the Oracle
As if it began like a fairytale, this all started as a dream. I had a dream I was proofing cards to a oracle deck. I went to turn over one of the cards and saw a sea lamprey. If you have ever seen one you know they are made of nightmares! It caught my attention enough to know that I was dreaming. A lucid dream now, as I started taking notes in my dream. I finished my nights sleep and in the morning I instantly remembered my dream. It seemed all to real. I grabbed my phone to see if I was dreaming or if there really was notes. I checked my phone and just like in my dream, there they were, 42 card design names and the last line in my note read...
GREAT LAKES ORACLE
Each piece of original artwork that was used for the 42 cards feature intricate line drawings to capture every detail of the story. Then the colors are gently added by strokes of watercolor. Each color blended using water from Lake Michigan.
