From the bestselling author of The Power Deck, Lynn V. Andrews returns with an advanced, gorgeously rendered deck of oracle cards for the modern world.
Throughout time and across cultures, shamanic wisdom has been revered as a wellspring of power and guidance. The word shaman actually means “one who sees in the dark.” Now, bestselling author and shaman Lynn V. Andrews and celebrated Native American artist Robert Taylor have collaborated to create Sacred Vision Oracle Cards, bringing you the ancient wisdom of shamanic tradition.
Combining striking imagery with insightful text, each card features a prayer to guide you on your quest for inner peace and harmony. The cards help you tap into your inner shaman to see through the darkness in your life and become the best version of yourself.
The cards offer clarity amidst the murkiness of our reactions and emotions. So often, we don’t trust our very powerful intuition simply because we aren’t familiar with how to use it. This deck will help you assess your life or a certain situation more clearly, resolving any indecision you may be feeling and awakening your natural intuitive gifts.
These sacred cards will help you to find that act of power that will change your life. By using the cards every day, you will strengthen your ability to find true harmony within yourself, and then you will manifest that harmony in the world.
With this oracle card deck, you have embraced the voice of wisdom that is already part of you, connecting you with the Great Spirit and all of life rather than keeping you separate and apart. Sacred Vision Oracle Cards will help you discover, embrace, and nurture that beautiful oracle within you into full bloom.
Sacred Vision Oracle Cards helps you to divine the essence of what you are seeking to learn, understand, and know by settling into another way of seeing and thinking. It is a sacred mirror because it transports you into higher awareness, where the truth and wisdom of who you are resides.
Each card promotes beauty, health, strength, wisdom, and balance in your life, enabling you to, in turn, manifest harmony on our planet and become more connected to nature and the beauty that is around you. Use the cards as a way to pray—to meditate on your inner truth and power.
The Sacred Vision Oracle Cards deck is one of ancient shamanic wisdom that will bring you back to your true center—that place of power within you that needs to be heard and expressed in your life.
The oracle within each card helps you go to the source of your limitations or pain so that these issues can be healed. Using the cards, you can lift up beyond time and form to reunite with Great Spirit. Each card uses a universal language of symbols in nature and words to reunite us with our higher selves and teach us about the unknown through the process of experience. In my work with people worldwide, I realized that we all need a way to experience the unknown; and I discovered that words and images together can be a quickening. When you meditate on the words and symbols of each card, you will see in your mind’s eye how to retrace your steps from the outer world of the tangible to the inner spirit of origination, ultimately rediscovering your true self. It is an outpouring of our natural—yet often forgotten—state of enlightenment.
I have created these cards with my friend and artist Robert Taylor because he hears with his heart, he paints with his soul, and he sees with the eyes of a true shaman:
The vision that guides my hands and brushes in creating these paintings is to juxtapose different cultural symbols to show us that we are all part of the same “imaging machine” of life. We communicate through energy, both positive and negative, and the art of any piece is found in the imagery as it transfers energy to the viewer—all energy is transferred in that way. When someone looks at a piece of art, that person sees his or her own vision of what the artwork shows to that individual. The vision you see may be very different from the artist’s, or it may be quite similar. Both are equally valid. All you have to do is surrender to whatever portal opens to you as a new energy comes in—don’t block it. Get rid of preconceived ideas.
As an artist, I am a door maker. I construct doors. If I decorate a door in the right way, somebody will open that door and see their own vision—see what is true for that person. Art, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. We aren’t all going to use the same road in life; what is important is that the road starts you on the journey. That is how energy and knowledge are transferred. To me, what inspires a painting is not as important as what the painting inspires within the viewer.
Every human being is an artist: your body is your brush, the Earth is your canvas, and your life is your painting. Paint a beautiful picture. Live well.
The Sacred Vision Oracle Cards deck has its roots in the ancient oracle deck of the women I have worked with inthe Sisterhood of the Shields (a circle of shamanic women with roots in the sacred feminine dedicated to healing mind and heart using an ancient truth). It has been designed to inspire you and the power that is within you—a power that may have been dormant until now. If you could perform one act of power that would change your life forever, what would it be? Most of us do not know. We have lost touch with our dreams—with that part of ourselves that helps us to manifest our true destiny in life. These sacred cards help you to find that act of power that will change your life. By using the cards every day, you will strengthen your ability to find true harmony within yourself, and then you will manifest that harmony in the world.
There are many ways to use these cards. You can pick a card each morning and let it stand in some important place in your home or office—someplace where the beautiful painting can be enjoyed. When you look at the painting, you will remember your card’s meaning; and you will stop for a moment to move into that silent place within, where truth is born. Consider the title of the artwork represented on the card and think of Robert’s words: “With every painting, there is an initial idea that is the foundation reflected in the title. The execution of the work becomes a dialogue that evolves into a visualof the human psyche.”
To relax and contemplate the words and images on the card will lead you to a more profound meaning. Remember that each card promotes beauty, health, strength, wisdom, and balance in your life, enabling you to, in turn, manifest harmony on our planet and become more connected to nature and the beauty that is around you. Use the cards as a way to pray—to meditate on your inner truth and power.
The way to open yourself is with love, not with intellect. When you look at the painting on a card, see it from your heart. When you read the words on the back of the card, know that they come from a sacred shamanic truth, and go where this truth takes you. Quicken your spirit by letting go of the attachments that have been holding you back, and move forevermore to a stronger vibration of power.
We have a strong destiny at this time in our history, and these cards will help you to find the pathway that is yours within this destiny. It is a powerful, soulful time, but you may not be fully aware of the particular aspects of this light within your spirit. Reveal the deepest part of your being by finding the expression of your totality—the true vision of the Sacred Vision Oracle Cards. Find your act of power, begin to know your dreams, and then, with excitement and joy, begin to live them.
