This deep play adventure is for any level of experience. The creation of your own one-of-a-kind cards is deceptively easy, and the messages surprisingly accurate. Creating an oracle card deck is a funky, fun process which accesses the very real power of divination using commonplace materials ranging from pop culture icons to indie Tarot deck elements.

Mellissae will lead you on a joyful journey of instinct, calling in your own power of divination. Activating your oracle within. Revealing exciting new possibilities for how to read the signs and synchronicities in your life. You never know what insights you are going to get– this is a good thing!

Courage from the Cards.

We are all born intuitive. Yet we resist. Learning to trust and then act on intuitive impulses is a fascinating journey.

Using the wisdom of an oracle deck as a divination tool, you can awaken access to your enchanted dialogue with the universe. Embrace your intuitive knowing. When you have faith in your internal guidance systems, the world opens up in ways never imagined. This navigational confidence awakens new levels of courage to embrace the compelling potentials. Potentials waiting for your leaps of faith.

This deck can become your own practical + profound GPS for seeing your life from a more visionary perspective, providing solace and inspiration. Already trust your intuition? This will be a new, deeply personal tool for you to add to your resources.

The Guide

Mellissae Lucia
Intuitive Artist + Mischief Maker

Mellissae’s great passion is to rekindle the innocent joy within each of us. Life is a great treasure hunt to reclaiming the wild beauty within, and living from that inspiring place. All of Lucia’s work is designed to help us embody our essential creative knowing.

She is a sixth generation Pacific Northwesterner who grew up in Seattle’s studio glass art movement. Mellissae worked for Dale Chihuly as a teenager and was deeply inspired by his independent visions. In her 20’s, she lived in Milan, Italy. Her educational background is in child development, archetypal psychology, and social justice. She also went through a “Martha Stewart” phase, getting married and looking forward to having children.

When Mellissae was 33, her husband died of cancer, sending her on a seven-year Quest to resurrect herself. The award-winning Oracle of Initiation divination deck emerged from that transformative time and she now teaches about the beauty of our rainbows in the dark – the paradox of our greatest gifts hidden within our shadows. Mellissae is currently initiating small groups into their Earthen Body knowing in the hidden landscape of Georgia O’Keeffe’s New Mexico. She also offers individual deep immersion artistic and spiritual retreats in the Land of Enchantment, and has a variety of online experimental iPhoneography and digital media courses, as well as an in-depth course on crafting your own Oracle deck from vision to production.
