Chakra Wisdom Oracle (Watkins, 2014). For instance, there is the structure - seven cards for each of the seven main chakras - which also hints at magic, with it's connotations of the seventh son of a seventh son. There is also the fact that the cards aren't all sweetness and light. Life, after all, isn't always perfect, and it is often precisely when things aren't great that we are most in need of assistance. The Rejection card, for example, suggests those times when we listen to critical voices: those of others around us, ourselves, or people from our past. Yet the view outside the windows hints that there is a wider world, and these concerns are very small in comparison.
The notion of being able to read cards to establish chakra imbalances is also an interesting one. These can then be adjusted either through using some of the spreads that accompany the deck, or by other recognised means of chakra balancing. The companion book offers seven spreads specifically to look at and work on intentions, along with sample readings using these. I like both the spreads and the sample readings, which help show how to use the spreads in a very practical, concise way.
It must be said, sometimes the images seem to have little to do with the fable they are associated with. For instance, the Balance card's fable is about a character called Periwinkle, who is an actor trying to "make" it. He drops his "loved ones" to sign with an agent, only to find that he doesn't get the big break he hoped for. While the image certainly shows the idea of upsetting others, the figure in purple could just as easily be a spirit suggesting a work-life balance, or compromising between different options, rather than the fable's moral that living a loving reality is better than waiting for a dream.
Other aspects of the companion book, though, are fascinating. The write-up to each card offers a "Legend" (a short fable), an "Inspiration" (a three line summary or thinking point), a "Personal Inquiry" (a question to ask yourself), "Key Ideas" and "Keywords", as well as a short "Meditation". While it may take some probing to understand how these relate amongst themselves, most people will find something to inspire them or help them connect to each card amongst these.
