Deluxe Oracle of Initiation deck and 400-page book.

“While the tarot is often described as the soul’s journey, the Oracle of Initiation, on the other hand, offers a journey of the Spirit. The images are haunting, spellbinding, intoxicating, instinctual. When working with them, you enter the immediacy of a timeless Now. Although solitary musings, they resonate with all our relations. Although seemingly personal, they touch both the ancient and universal in each of us. They are an eloquent reminder that the earth is Spirit-embodied and we are one with it. Highly recommended as a spiritual companion and tool for your own journey.”

—Mary K. Greer, author of 21 Ways to Read a Tarot Card


“Mellissae Lucia’s amazing Oracle of Initiation deck consists of intense shamanic photographs, self-portraits done in a kind of trance state. It’s one of a tiny handful of decks I keep in my bedroom, for late night inspiration.”

About the deck

The Oracle of Initiation offers experienced guidance through the shadowy & shape-shifting landscape of spiritual transformation. The deck is a portal; a passageway between dimensions, a visionary map through the thresholds and experiences that initiate us into embodying our divine essence. The Oracle also speaks to the paradox of brilliance within the darkness: the sacred illumination available through embracing the treasures within our challenges and complexities.

About the ritualistic Painted Body images

All of The Painted Body images within the deck were taken alone, by the artist herself, in the ancient desert landscape of arroyos, canyons, caves, and tunnels surrounding Santa Fe, New Mexico. In her work, the camera is held at arm’s length, making it a literal extension of her body. At the moment of creation it is both a part of the art and of the artist as well. None of the photographs in The Painted Body series are altered or retouched in any way.

The compelling intensity of The Oracle of Initiation’s images speak directly to the intuitive and instinctive, no longer requiring a vast understanding of a complex array of symbols and definitions. The startling intensity of the dream-like photographs questions our preconceived ideas about identity and reality; awakening a sense of each of our shape-shifting and expansive potentials. The images also reclaim access to the ancient indigenous knowing we each carry within our cellular memory of being guided by otherworldly Spirits, Ancestors, Gods and Goddesses.


About the Creator

moiYellowmeThe Oracle of Initiation deck emerged directly from artist Mellissae Lucia’s own resurrection after the death of her husband. The profound dissolution, despair, and renewal she experienced led her to create the ritualistic Painted Body photography series for the deck.

Mellissae is an artist and adventurer; she has spent over two decades immersed in Norse, African & Native American sacred traditions, cross-cultural divination, indigenous dream-work, and Western and Archetypal psychology.  Her extensive background in transformational education, holistic & intuitive healing, and ritualistic creative processes has molded her into an authentic new voice leading us through our massive cultural and energetic shifts.

She leads workshops on creativity and transformation including The Chakras Through Art; Your Sacred Allies; The Art of Change: A Women’s Retreat with Horses; and Our Temples Illuminated: Women’s Journeys into their Sacred Inner Landscapes.

Mellissae offers divination readings with her Oracle deck on the phone or in person, Spiritual Initiation counseling, writes about spiritual awakening & sells fine art prints of her images. She lives in Seattle, WA.

Ariel, age 7


“The Oracle of Initiation deck is created from ancient wisdom, reverently gathered from many continents and wisdom carriers/elders. The images speak of our shared mythology, our common stories and belief systems. Whether that story originates in Africa, Norway, or with any other indigenous peoples, we are all bound by the same truths.  As we build new mythologies on how to navigate the modern era, The Oracle of Initiation will guide us on our path.”

Jabulile Dayton, Oakland, CA


“Using The Oracle of Initiation cards in my intuitive healing sessions and workshops, the clients are able to pull whatever they need out of themselves through directly relating to the powerful images. Beautiful synchronistic weaving occurs between the clients and deck, allowing them to have a deeper relationship with the mystery within.”

Hillary Raimo, author of Money Matters for Mind, Body, and Spirit


“Through The Oracle of Initiation’s validating wisdom I now know initiations are a normal part of the life cycle, and I can finally trust that the challenges are not permanent.  I needed to know the hard-ass places could yield beauty, and the Oracle taught me that.”

Suzy Wenger, Ellensburg, WA

Through asking some of the deepest questions from my heart, her cards have opened for me doorways of healing, discovery and celebration. The deck is inspiring, overwhelmingly beautiful and divine in more words than we have to date.”

Divination Reading & Spiritual Initiation Counseling Testimonials

“Thank you for our power-filled Oracle of Initiation session yesterday!  Diving deep into the ancient lineage programs is proving cathartic and transformative … the shifts being seen and felt in a big way beginning last night.  Thank you, Dear One, for the beauty, wisdom and brutal compassion you offer and Live.”

Stacey Robyn, Tempe AZ,

“It didn’t matter that Mellissae and I had never met, nor that we were doing a reading for my birthday over the phone.  It was a deeply intuitive and insightful reading that answered my questions, even though I never got them asked, and addressed the issues that have been so troublesome, even though I hadn’t told her about them.  She, and the cards, and I were just so attuned that the reading flowed and danced in just the right way.  And in the few weeks since the reading, my energy has been positively bubbling and my spirit has been singing, further confirmation, if I needed more, that this reading was just really right on.  It isn’t that we didn’t identify work for me to do, rather I think that it is because my deep self recognizes that this is the path of coming home to mySelf.  This was a joyful reading.”

Jeanne Raines Fort Wayne, IN

“The reading with Mellissae moved so much energy and clarified so much that I could hardly be still! And so I started seeking more clients in my private practice, said no to the things that were not working, created space and the clients came!

I believe that everyone who is open to change, curious or lost should experience at least one reading with Mellissae in their lifetime! Her connection to spirit and the other side is strong! These skills made the experience incredibly personal for me knowing that ‘she’ wasn’t dispensing advice, but merely conveying messages from my guides, who’ve been trying to get my attention!! Her accuracy is exquisite and surprising, but a comfort at the same time!”

Lisa Scott-Wilkie San Diego, CA

“Mellissae and I met for literally for 2 seconds at Esalen. I remember of her a bright light and luminescent being, with no clue of what she looked like afterwards because our encounter was so brief. At that time I was very far from being in contact consciously with any spiritual awareness. At Esalen Mellissae had business cards: I took one….

And that’s when my Life changed.

I called Mellissae for a reading, and from that day on we have not stopped our conversations that enlightens my awareness of a world of magic that I had no knowledge of. With her support, her clear-sightedness, her loving sweetness, I cleared So much of my lineage’s blockages. I reconnected with my own energy and Power. I discovered the world of my Spirits, The Fairies, a reality that she, step by step, helped me to trust and embrace. Mellissae has been a teacher, a fairy, a guide, and a friend that I wish everyone to be as fortunate as I am to have. THANK YOU MELISSA!!!!”

IVP  Paris, France   Spiritual Initiation Coaching

“Mellissae has an important gift to share with the world, so listen up and get ready to be blown away! The story of her personal journey of transformation holds important clues on how to listen when Spirit speaks, and successfully navigate life’s ups and downs. As you listen, you will find yourself re-membering your own connections—to Spirit, to the land, to your body and your embodiment of the divine, your creative expression, your sense of adventure. You will be called to embark upon your own journey through the rabbit hole, surrendering to your inner guidance that knows the way, bound to discover the secrets of life, your life. Only get a reading from her if you dare. Once the transformation begins, there’s no going backwards.”

Jennifer Masters, Shamanic Priestess  San Diego, CA

“First off, let me say that I’m probably a bit of a tough customer. I don’t give out kudos easily or often and I go by what works, not by what sounds nice or appears proper.

Going into the reading I was concerned that Mellissae’s Oracle of Initiation was based around cards that she had made—and indeed featured her. This proved to be a non-issue as she treats the images as general ones and has completely separated the artistic process of creating the cards from the intuitive process of doing readings. I can’t imagine many people having the skills required to a) create their own deck and b) put them to use so professionally. This allows Mellissae to make the most of what is obviously a rare connection with her tools.

To the reading itself—Mellissae obviously has a great gift. Without prodding or even much information she honed in on information & areas that were specifically of interest. She also nailed a couple archetypes of mine—by name—without any information or mentions from me. She is very gentle and gracious as a conduit and has a good sense of humor as well. Getting a reading—a good one at least—takes vulnerability and Mellissae easily and quickly earned my trust.”

Eben Carlson Chicago, IL

“ Mellissae Lucia {Melissa Weiss Steele} is one of the smartest, most adept, and brightest Spiritual counselors  I have encountered. She radiates love, optimism and graciousness. She was able to give me insights about my career path that seemed obvious in retrospect, but were absolutely hidden from me at the time. Her perspective on my travails helped calm and reassure me that I was traveling the right path. She’s a sure bet if you are looking for insight and direction.”

Nancy Desmond, Lynwood, WA
