Hello, soul friends!
Today's review is covering a deck that caught my attention for it's beautiful artwork and it being another creation from Alana Fairchild. I couldn't wait to get my own deck and work with this beauty.
I hope you enjoy my review and generous pictures!
I asked my husband to buy me this deck for my birthday this year, as it came out a week before. I love Alana's decks and have found that each deck of hers I get becomes a fast favorite. I really enjoy her style and execution of the themes.

My Personal Review
This 44-card deck is meant to be used as an Oracle deck, allowing you to devise your own meanings of the cards, as well. The dimensions of the deck are 1.5 x 4.2 x 6.2 inches and published by Blue Angel Publishing and Llewellyn Publications.
The lift top box is beautiful. And similar quality to Blue Angel Publishing decks. I love the quality and also that the decks are a little larger than the size of the decks. They are not easy to transport in their boxes, but I love the quality of the boxes and the larger size.
There is also includes a wonderfully detailed 140 page guidebook, that is so in-depth, much like her other creations. I love how thorough and gentle the messages are. Alana goes through so much of the process of the channeled messages she receives for each card. I enjoy a lot of her work and her writings. They are peaceful and fierce. The card backs are a simple lens flare. Reversals are up to the reader but are really not needed with this deck. The cards are high quality with a shiny, sticky feel that makes shuffling a little less than ideal. A keyword and number is printed on the front of each card which corresponds to the keyword descriptions in the guidebook. There is nothing harsh, garish, or obscene in this deck. It can be used to read for any client, without upsetting them, or having difficulty to translate cards. The card stock is not overly thick, shiny, sticky to shuffle, and allow you get a nice bend without cracking the card stock. The finish really helps make the cards shuffle easily without scratching, but some of the cards do stick together when the deck is new.
The size of the cards is an average oracle deck size for Blue Angel, so they are larger. I found it to be a bit difficult for my small hands to get a grasp on the deck at times.
It being a Lightworker deck, the cards incorporate metaphysical and spiritual themes running through it. It really does lead one to using their intuition and also diving into all of the details in the cards. This may not be the easiest to just pick up for those who are not used to having to rely too heavily on intuition, but with practice and an open mind, it can quickly become a gentle favorite. That being said, it is down to earth and very user friendly.
The artwork is fantastic and soothing, although I did notice some few repeated images, so I am not sure whether it was meant to be that way, or if it was overlooked. And other than that, the rest of the images were really well done and fit the deck well.
Here are some extra pictures of this ethereal creation:
Overall, I think this was a much needed and well-executed deck. Simple, but straight to the point. I highly recommend it!
My overall opinion is that this deck is a 4.5 star choice.
Artwork - 5 stars
Card stock - 3 stars
Ease - 4 stars
Guidebook - 4 stars
