How to Use Your Deck

There are no rules when using this deck. It was truly created for you to make your own. When you look at its beautiful illustrations, ask yourself, “What do I need today?” The thought or feeling that imme­diately follows is your intuition speaking to you; listen with an open mind and heart. If you’re currently strengthening your con­nection with your intuition, this deck will help you do so.

Rising Ritual

Rise in the morning and say hello to the sun.

  • Grab your journal and find a comfortable place to sit. Gently close your eyes and flow through three delicious, grounding breaths.
  • After your last exhale, grab your Golden Mantras deck and pull the number of cards that you feel called to.
  • Speak the mantra(s) aloud.
  • Read the passage from this guidebook associated with each card, and complete the journaling prompt to wrap your ritual.

Golden Prayer

Find yourself in your sacred safe space.

  • Move yourself into a delicious state of gratitude by reciting the following:

Dear (to whom you send prayers),

Thank you for allowing me to be the soul to inhabit this magnificent body and lead this divine journey you’ve conspired with me to create. I thank you for the ultimate gift of life and the blessing of breath. I give thanks for your acceptance and how you generously give me grace.

*Note: Feel free to express your gratitude for more blessings you’re grateful for.*

  • After giving thanks, describe in depth what it is you’re calling in. Be sure to include the “why” of it all.
  • Once you’ve asked for your blessings, ask the divine to offer words of wisdom that will help you along your journey of manifestation.
  • Pull a Golden Mantra and speak the words into the Universe.


  • Envision three empty card slots in front of you. Label them with three different areas of your life in which you seek guidance (for example: Family, Finances, and Career).
  • Shuffle your Golden Mantras deck and then select a card for each slot you’ve envisioned.
  • Read the mantra on each card aloud, then grab your journal and reflect on its relation to the specific area of life it’s addressing.


I am no longer my own worst enemy. I am the love of my life.

My love, it’s time to shower yourself in posi­tive self-talk. You’ve spent most of your life speaking down to yourself and questioning your ability to show up in the world the way you truly desire. Like many, this has become your default response when you explore making shifts in your life.

Affirm that you are the love of your life. Promise that you will go hard for your hap­piness and peace. You are no longer your worst enemy.

JOURNAL PROMPT: How am I my worst enemy, engaging with negative self-talk or other patterns that keep me from reaching my high­est potential? How can I become my biggest sup­porter and the love of my life?

I am my best healer. I am my strongest healer, and I’ve got this.

My sweet love, no one will ever know you as intimately as you know yourself. Just breathe, for one moment, to hear your heart. It will tell you what is needed to nourish its wounds, for it knows you are its greatest healer. You’ve got this, beautiful one.

JOURNAL PROMPT: Sit yourself in a quiet space and take three breaths. Now close your eyes and take three slower, much deeper breaths. Allow silence to fill the air until you feel you are rooted. Ask your heart what’s wrong, and then ask it why. Once it’s done speaking, ask how you can begin to nourish its wounds.

I am unlearning lack and scarcity. Abundance is a frequency I vibe on.

My love, you attract what is needed and divinely desired with ease. You lack nothing, and resources are available for you in abun­dance. It’s time to break down this mind-set of scarcity and dance in the frequency of all that is available to you.

JOURNAL PROMPT: Write down your thoughts of lack and scarcity. Then follow up with a real example of how you received these things, despite your fears.
