When I have an important life question, or a situation I need guidance on, I seek answers from my angels and spirit guides using Kristy Robinett’s Higher Intuitions Oracle (affiliate link).
It’s my favorite oracle card deck and has become my go-to deck for several reasons.
Metro Detroiters rock my world
First, I know Kristy. We both live in the metro Detroit, Michigan area, so I’ve been a client and supporter of hers for several years now. She’s skilled at using her gifts — both the psychic mediumship and her talent as an author — and has always been professional in doing so.
Being able to have an in-person connection with her has helped me to bond with her oracle cards, no doubt.
A sentimental first
Kristy Robinett’s Higher Intuitions Oracle was the first oracle deck I ever purchased. People often are sentimental about firsts — first kiss, first love, first sexual experience, first car, first job, first house or apartment — you get the idea! I feel the same way about these cards.
This deck has grown with me and my energy over the past couple of years. I feel like the deck knows where I’ve been and where I am going. That’s a powerful — and comforting — thing to me.
Animals take center stage on the Higher Intuitions Oracle’s 44 cards, and each whimsical critter is brought to life by artist Johna Gibson Bowman. She does a wonderful job of conveying each card’s meaning with her imagery.
Johna’s work is bright, colorful and includes lovely detail… like the birds resting on a moose’s antlers, or the swan’s reflection in the water, or the vines wrapping around the mouse’s sweet little hammock as it naps.
I also love the owls on the back of the cards. The owls are mirrored, so when shuffling, all the cards look the same until one is turned over. I love a uniform appearance while shuffling. It helps me to concentrate on the question I am asking my guides. I have a few others decks where the image on the back of the card isn’t mirrored, and it’s always a little distracting to me.
I’m a huge animal lover so this deck is right up my alley in that sense. I dare you not to fall in love with each and every critter once you begin using this deck!
Uplifting and inspirational
The set comes with a 128-page pocket-size guidebook written by Kristy. Each card has a page (sometimes two) where Kristy offers more information about that card’s meaning. She includes keywords for each, as well as an inspirational quote.
The quotes are a fantastic touch. For me, they often become mantras that I’ll recite to myself throughout the duration of working with a particular card.
I also love Kristy’s writing style. It’s simple and down to earth, as if a good friend you’ve known your whole life is sitting there next to you, offering advice and encouragement.
All of the messages in this deck are uplifting and positive. I always feel better about my situation or life after using these cards. And to me, that’s really something because not all decks resonate with me the way this one does.
The other good stuff
Other things you may want to know about Kristy Robinett’s Higher Intuitions Oracle:
- The cards and guidebook come in a beautiful, sturdy box
- The magnetized lid has a convenient pull ribbon for easy opening
- The cards themselves have a glossy finish and are made of a nice pliable card stock
- What I mean by “nice pliable card stock” is that they have enough give in them to making certain shuffling methods a breeze, yet they are stiff enough to withstand regular, frequent use
- The card size is about 4.5″ x 2 and 7/8 ” which to me is a fantastic size
- The set is published by Schiffer Publishing

I wish this deck…
In my reviews, I always try to include one or two things I think are missing or could be approved upon. In case you couldn’t tell, I think these cards are terrific. The only thing that would make this set better, for me, is if there were more cards (and animals) to work with. I know, I know… I’m greedy. But since I really resonate with this deck, I want it to go on forever. A girl can dream, right? :)
