Fairy Tales metaphoric cards

JOURNEY THROUGH THE ENCHANTING WORLD OF FAIRY TALES WITH SYMBOLIC WISDOM AND INSIGHT.

Fairy tale metaphoric cards are a tool that uses images and symbols from fairy tales to provide insights into a person's life, emotions, and future. Fairy tale metaphoric cards can be used for a variety of purposes, including self-reflection, decision-making, problem-solving, and spiritual growth. They offer a unique and imaginative way to explore the deeper aspects of our psyche and tap into the collective wisdom of traditional folklore and mythology. They can be an excellent tool for working with both children and adults, providing a creative and engaging activity that can be presented in a game format.
Each of us has an inner child - we were all once children, spontaneous, creative, joyful, curious, and well aware of our desires. However, contact with our inner child can be lost, causing us to miss out on many strong characteristics and joyful opportunities. Fairy tale metaphoric cards can help restore our connection with our inner child and provide a deeper understanding of our desires and motivations. But of course, the benefits of fairy tale metaphoric cards go beyond restoring contact with our inner child. There are lots of articles about the benefits of fairy tale therapy, and the main specific of those cards is that fairytale is a natural, comprehensible and ecological format that does not scare us.
Fairy Tales Deck includes characters, locations, different items (like letter, sword, money chest etc.), animals and other mythical creatures.

Visual Frameworks

A LANGUAGE OF PATTERNS.

Visual frameworks are simple sketches and diagrams that you can use to think more creatively about life and work.

Each card has a title and a simple sketch. There are no "right" descriptions. What's important is what you see, and what thoughts and ideas the card conjures for you.

We have included a few games for you to try, but that's just to get you started.

There is an infinite number of ways you can use the cards / framework. The only limit is your imagination.

THE CHILD PROPHET LOVING KINDNESSES ICONIC DECK

IS YOUR INNER CHILD TRYING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING

Welcome to this very special intuitive deck of LOVINGKINDNESSES — companion to the award-winning illustrated book, THE CHILD PROPHET — and to the experiences and truths, this tool reveals.

The iconic symbols and energies from spirit and science come through love and serve listening to Source and your intuition. They are a holistic means with which to illuminate your inner voice. Each symbol is rooted in time and space, so each has a powerful vibration familiar to your spiritual essence, and each is easy to wield.

While this deck contains many symbols, the title word LOVINGKINDNESSES is also rich meaning: affection, mercy, reverence, grace, and behavior that expresses love. In Buddhism, it signifies unconditional benevolence to all beings.

LOVINGKINDNESSES has 16 letters. The number 16 symbolizes introspection, wholeness, and completion; it is double purity, kindness, and luck. The esoteric meaning of 16 is that new knowledge is acquired, and there will be opportunities to use it. Sixteen is also the symbol of love and loving in the Bible, and it is the “duality of true love.” In numerology, 1+6=7 and seven convey the responsibility to listen to your inner voice.

There are 67 symbol cards in the deck. 67 is a magical number meaning that your angels are near and ready to help you realize your higher purpose in this earthly life experience.

About the LOVINGKINDNESSES cards and how to use them:

Your intuition is the key to using this deck. First, have a clear intention. Shuffle. Then draw and lay out the cards and interpret them and the message each offers. The symbol on each card is ancient and full of energy and meaning that transcends. Each is innate and speaks on a deeper level with the soul. Each came from Source through meditation and journeying. And messages from Sources come with each symbol to help translate them.

There are four faces on each card:
1) in gold - the symbol, with the name of the card and a few keywords
2) in rose - a deeper derivation of the symbol, a direct message from the inner child – Source
3) in silver - the divination
4/ in blue - related actions you can take
