Why is it that I love adore and want to kiss Oracles every day of my life? After 30 years, I find my passion and reverence for the work I do with cards grows stronger and more rooted than ever.
Maybe it’s because A) I’m weird.
Okay. True. But also because:
B) Oracles are cool beyond belief. That is my oracles. I can’t speak for others. There are SO MANY out there now. Who can keep up? When my Dad and I named our one-of-a-kind system “The Playing Card Oracles” back like 15 years ago, nobody else was using the word “Oracle.” I am serious. Nobody. We thought, “OMG, this is such a unique name!” I know everyone thereafter just copied us. So when I say I love Oracles, I am talking about The Playing Card Oracles. Are you familiar with it yet?
It is not only the original “Oracles” but also has this beautiful, gorgeous, harmonic structure, not created by ME mind you, or my Dad (who illustrated and co-wrote), or anybody living for at least 10 centuries, but simply polished off and brought out of the dungeon my Father and myself. (NO, NO, NO, IT”S NOT, NOT, NOT TAROT.)
This harmonic structure dusted off in The Playing Card Oracles is a living working model of natural rhythms that we live and breath by. The reason people didn’t see these harmonics in the 52-card deck before we published our book is, because, basically, people are unconscious.
Sorry, but it’s true.
We can look straight at a miracle and not see it. And we do. All the time.
So enough is enough. Time to wake up. Time to kiss and hug the the beauty and the miracle of what we are given. And it is all in the numbers, the colors, and the suits of the ordinary schmordinary 52-card deck. 13 cycles (Ace through King) within 4 suits: These are the 13 weeks (or cards) within each season or suit. Oh, did you not know there are 13 weeks within each season, as well as 13 lunar cycles each of 4 weeks? Well, now you do! The 4 suits are the 4 seasons of the 52 card deck or 52 week year. Add all the numbers within one suit and you get 91, the EXACT number of days in a season. 364 total numbers in a deck are the EXACT number of days in the lunar calendar year. Red and Black reflect the cycles of day and night, of light and dark within the numbers. Now, all totaled, you’re starting to talk amazing. Start shuffling this little pack of wonders and watch an actual act of creation with all the bells and whistles right on an ordinary table in front of you. Then LOOK at what is before you and READ the story. Then REALLY freak out. Because it is the story of you.
I believe that prolonged concentration on these numbers and colors and the way they move within each other effects a mending of our brain, re-aligning our thinking and being with NATURAL rhythms. It’s looking at the beautiful mandala of nature and allowing it to seep in to your soul as you contemplate the beauty and perfection of it’s harmonics.
You see these are the same melodious harmonics that make you and me. I cannot be separated from nature. So I am contemplating my TRUE SELF when I contemplate the codes in the 52-cards. I contemplate my own rhythms, and embrace my own nature. And THIS is WHY I live in a constant state of LIFE IS GOOD.
I can’t keep this stuff a secret ANY LONGER! I can’t even charge MONEY for it if it makes people have to think twice about ordering the book. JUST DOWNLOAD IT FOR FREE. Please! Take it from me! Spread it around the world! and BE HAPPY for goodness sake.
