After 15 years of living too far from the ocean, we packed up our life and moved to Coffs Harbour NSW where I work as a Bowen therapist and artist. I love being closer to the sea and am still awed, every day, by the beauty of this place. The idea for The Ocean Oracle came to me a few years ago and it was an ‘ah ha!’ moment I am grateful I paid attention to. I have always felt nurtured and supported by the ocean and its ability to heal, and I wanted to capture that healing power with stories and messages.
What do The Ocean Oracle and Bowen therapy have in common? Me!
I recently had the pleasure of catching up with Chris Reed, the creator of the BowenBuzz podcast, and in this episode we talk about how I ended up in Coffs, why Bowen therapy is so amazing and how and why I created The Ocean Oracle. I also do a reading at the end. It was really fun chatting with him (there might have been some red wine involved...) and I am pleased to be able to share the episode on my page. Find out more in the BowenBuzz podcast available here.
About the deck - What message does the ocean have for you?
Have you ever spent time by the ocean and felt its ability to nurture, support and heal - whether it’s looking out into the water, walking along the sand, swimming in the ocean or collecting shells and rocks at the ocean’s edge? There is something so special, so primal, about being near the ocean and this oracle was designed to continue that nurturing, support and healing even when far from the ocean’s roar.
The Ocean Oracle is a 45 card deck, along with a 32 page interpretation booklet, which uses Story and Messages to help with Remembrance – a remembrance of our soul Self and who we are. We, as humans, are ~70% water and cannot help but be influenced by large bodies of water, such as the ocean. We all have a deep connection to the ocean, whether remembered or not. This oracle offers wisdom of the ocean and its surrounds, by using Story to tap into our Remembrance around what the ocean holds for us. The Messages which follow the Story help lend clarity to what a particular card may represent in a reading. The cards can be used with a specific question in mind, or as a tool to offer guidance in a general way.
The Story is often subtle but can affect us deeply as it works on different levels of healing. The Messages ask questions of us and will resonate on whatever level healing needs to take place. In this way, the healing is gentle and profound, with the person using the cards able to absorb what they need in order to remember and heal.
The deck uses beautiful photos which are designed to gently support the Story and Messages. Each card is numbered and has a name and message associated with it. It is with love and gratitude that I developed this deck. Please use it with an open heart to see, feel and hear what healing it has to offer you. And if you feel guided, please contact me with your Ocean Oracle stories.
