As we are not just a mind or a body or a soul the cards take account of all three.
The Mind – The questions, based on cognitive therapy, are relevant and specific to each mood and every question will enable you to consider every emotion in more depth and find ways to move forward through active thinking which will increase your emotional intelligence.
The Body – The colours of each image have been created to reflect the colours and meanings of the chakra system. For example red relates to our root chakra, and is powerfully linked to primitive and emotional survival needs and our need to be rooted and secure. On the other hand red also brings passion and strength to our lives. You will see as you choose your cards from the box how the colours can help you to become more empowered.
The Soul – The cards as a whole will reach into the core of who you are to find the answers for yourself. The affirmations work on a deep level by repetition and sub-conscious awareness of new patterns of thought and energy. In that way, they become a spiritual journey of discovery.
The simple designs make this product suitable for anyone to use either alone, with another person or in groups.
