Inner Child Cards is a journey into Fairy Tales, Myth and Nature, the theater of the Soul. This is a divination system that reawakens the child in all of us by gently helping us to interact with the most potent archetypes of the Inner World. Drawing on universal children's fairy tales, myths and fables such as Sleeping Beauty, Alice in Wonderland and Robin Hood, these delightful cards open our hearts, minds and Spirits to new revelations about the journey of Self-discovery. This an excellent system for dream work, the recovery process and use with children.
The “real” esoteric function behind this system is in its uncanny capacity for mapping out the life we are now living. In this way, it is a hall of mirrors for the times of our lives. It reveals the formation of a human culture and the multiple phases of its own transformation and growth. First, these cards celebrate the imaginative Spirit of the child. Second, they dismantle and rearrange the traditional metaphors.
When we are young children, fantasy fills our lives. We are introduced to elves and gnomes, dwarves and warriors, angels and beasts. We learn that faith makes the soul shine, that purity is our greatest joy and that suffering and sacrifice are the unpolished jewels of treasures yet to come. Fairy stories, told and retold, enrich the depths of our hearts from which our hopes and ideals are born. No other literary creation has such a fundamental effect on us as has the fairy tale.
It is our greatest hope that the Inner Child can aid our planet during a time of global metamorphosis. These readings usher in the language of picture consciousness, and form this well of nourishment, as a long-lost inner voice may be heard again. Caught up in a desperate pursuit of survival, we sometimes destroy or ignore our most precious gifts. Each one of us is as rich and divine as the cosmic Creator who guides us. Love is the greatest healer of all.
