Hello, soul friends!
Today's review is covering a deck that I purchased as a gift for myself last year during Christmas. I had seen it around on Instagram and thought it was a cute addition. It was a different one to add into my collection.
I hope you enjoy my review and generous pictures!
Miracles Now Affirmation Cards
I purchased this deck from Hay House from one of their sales to add an affirmation deck to what I already had in my collection. It stands out with the short but profound messages on each of the cards. I really loved the galaxy theme on this easy to use deck.
Amazon's description is:
“My hope is that you’ll use this deck daily as a spiritual guide to help expand your miracle mind-set. When in doubt, put your hand on the deck and say, ‘Thank you, divine guidance. I need a Miracle Now. Show me what you’ve got!’ Trust in the guidance you receive and let it inform your next right action.”

My Personal Review
This 62-card deck is meant to be used as a daily inspirational conversation to have with yourself, when you feel you can't really look past your own personal blocks. This can in no way be confused for an oracle or Tarot deck, and I didn't feel that I could use it as one, anyway. I wasn't really aware of what to expect with this deck, but kept an open mind, as I had seen it used by friends. This was obviously a deck for those who like affirmations or something to meditate on. These cards were not practical to use for a reading but are better to be more of an afterthought or addendum.
The cards have fun and thorough little messages, allowing one to take just a minute to think about the message, perhaps altering their mental energy and focus on the message that allows you to dive a bit deeper. They offer great reminders that help you to focus on a motivating quote. Overall, I prefer a little more depth. I like the idea of daily inspiration, but this just doesn't do it for me 100%. This has inspired me but I didn't always feel a deep connection with all of the messages included. Some cards really made me think and connect, but others I was left a little lacking.
The size of the cards is quite a bit larger than a traditional tarot card, but smaller than some Hay House cards, and they are more of a square than a rectangular type of card. The overall product dimensions: 4.5 x 1.2 x 5.8 inches and Hay House is who publishes the deck.
The card stock is thick, shiny, and allows you get a nice bend without cracking the card stock. The silver gilded edges are a nice touch, that add a little luxe to the deck. Shuffling these cards is nice and smooth. They are slick and smooth, but do stick together sometimes. The deck comes with a flip top box that was a unique touch. The box is thick and a good quality.
I think the deck is a cute way to reset the day on a positive and healthy note! I loved the messages, as they are inspiring, funny, and also versatile to use as a bit of an affirmation. As there was no guidebook or booklet to help you further connect to the cards, I am not sure you could use it for a reading alone.
The was no guidebook or booklet included with the deck, as it is meant to be used as an affirmation deck.
Overall, I found this to be a surprisingly thoughtful and useful affirmation deck.
My overall opinion is that this deck is a 3 star choice.
