I created these cards as a reminder of the powerful, positive qualities we all have within us which can become dimmed with the challenges of everyday life. The deck comprises 55 cards, using 17 colours. The cards are designed to provide direction when trying to resolve a recurring issue or when facing a challenging situation. Each card contains a circle of colour and a written word, a positive quality, which aligns with that colour. There are no negative cards in the deck as, to my mind, we can be negative enough about ourselves without adding to it(!)
Colour transmits messages far more rapidly than words. The pairing of a colour with the written word means that the impact of the cards is doubled, giving two different perspectives on the issue presented. To accompany and explain the deck is a comprehensive 80-page handbook which includes the history of each colour and a section on why each card might have been picked. There are also ideas for card layouts and examples of those layouts being used and what the cards pulled meant to the participants.
The handbook ensures independent use of the cards with no need for an interpreter. It is not esoteric or specialist and enables clear, quick and effective readings.
