Angel Reading Cards is a 36 card deck and 92 page guidebook, based on working with the energy of the Angelic realm. The cards and book come in a sturdy box, with the same light colored bubble background as the backs of the cards. The box has a magnetic closure along the right hand side. There is a silver insert for the cards. Very nice presentation! The concept is to work with Angels in specific situations – to understand that you can always call on them.
In her introduction, Malone reminds us that angels are only a thought away – that we are never alone. The cards are meant to remind us of the spiritual beings that we always have around us. We are reminded that we have a personal Guardian Angel that is with us for life, but that throughout our life we have had access to Angelic energy as needed. We simply have to ask for it. Angels are there to help us, but they need to be asked first. Malone also talks about our ancestral angels and spirit guides. The messages in this book are channeled messages, channeled through Malone.
In the section on how to use the cards, Malone talks about dedicating them, dealing with cards that jump out, doing one card daily readings, and presents templates for a three card Angel Guidance Layout, a seven card An Angel For Everyday Layout, a three card Angel Encouragement Layout, a four card Angels of Purpose Layout, and a six card Resolution Layout.
Each card is presented with a full page color image, card title, card purpose, a description of the cards energy, and how to use it, and an affirmation. For example – The Angel of Inner Peace shows the purpose of “Surrender your worries to the Universe. Reconnect today and feel inner peace.” The affirmation is: “I am grateful for the assistance that I receive from my Angel of Inner Peace. Whenever I feel inner turmoil and stress, I allow my Angel of Inner Peace to help me to re-center and find peace within myself.”
The cards are 3 ¾” by 5 ½”. The backs show a light colored bubble pattern, with a pair of white wings centered in the middle of the card. , The back is not reversible. The card faces show a gold outer border, with a thin white inner border. The card title is centered at the bottom of the card, with the card number above it.
The card imagery is a combination of photography and digital painting, superimposing the real world over a dreamy world. It shows a juxtaposition of light and dark which works very well. The choice of Angelic energy, and the modern nature of the imagery, will appeal to many people. It does not to me. Rather than working with known angels, we are working with “concepts”, such as the Angel of Parking, the Angel of Stress, the Angel of Strength, the Chakra Balancing Angel, and an angel for each of the clairs (Clairvoyance, Clairaudience, Clairsentience, and Claircognizance). There is even a Career Angel. I understand that lightening things up will reach more people, but this was a bit too light for me.
The cards are beautifully presented, and their purpose is attained – helping the reader connect to a higher real, and seek the assistance needed to do our best in everyday life.
