The Colour Potential

The Colour Potential

I created these cards as a reminder of how amazing we are - of the strength, creativity and beauty that we carry within ourselves. Of the positive traits we all have that can get somewhat dimmed in coping with everyday life.

The cards are intended as gentle, yet powerful, hints to help you when you need to resolve a recurring issue or require gentle support in facing a challenging situation. They stem from my passion for colour and my training as a Metaphysical counsellor.

Each card contains a splash of colour and a written word, a quality, which aligns with that colour. The qualities are positive traits that are within all of us, but which may not always have been given full expression. There are no negative cards in the deck as, to my mind, we are negative enough about ourselves without adding to it!

The deck comprises 55 cards, employing 18 colours, each with 3 separate qualities, plus a Joker.

Colour transmits messages rapidly, far quicker than any words. The colours on the cards speak swiftly and personally to the reader. The pairing of colour with a written word means that the impact of the cards is doubled, allowing for the resolution of an issue from two different perspectives.

A comprehensive 80-page Handbook accompanies the cards. I wrote the Handbook to enable independent use of the cards, with no need for an interpreter. The subject matter is not esoteric or specialist. Its power is in the deck’s simplicity, accessibility and ease.

The Handbook includes:

  • Sample card layouts and case histories of all card readings suggested.
  • A page outlining the unique cultural, religious and political associations through history of each colour used.
  • An explanatory section for each card - this outlines why a quality has been paired with a colour and offers suggestions as to why that particular card might have been picked.
  • A background to how colour works in us and in the world.
