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.

FREE KINDLE GIVEAWAY!

Can I Give You A New Kindle Fire?

Kindle Fire

I need a quick favor, and to encourage you to say yes, I have decided to give away a brand new Kindle Fire next Monday (11/03/14). Do you want it?

Yes, it is a $139 value, and someone reading this post is going to win it.  Will this be you?

Here’s the deal.

In order for my books to become an official “Bestseller” on the Amazon Kindle platform I need real customers … with real sales and real testimonials posted on the Amazon website. What’s surprising is that it doesn’t take a million orders to become a best seller. If just 50 people buy my latest Kindle book at (at just 99 cents this weekend – Friday, 10/31/14 through Sunday, 11/02/14) it has a great chance of being at or near the top of the list of holiday self-help books.

NOTE: I MESSED UP WHEN I SET THE PRICE FOR THIS CONTEST. IT IS UP ON AMAZON FOR FREE! BECAUSE THIS IS MY ERROR, I AM HONORING THE CONTEST, AND THE KINDLE FIRE WILL BE GIVEN AWAY! 

What better way to motivate you to help me than to create an “ethical bribe” so you and a few other buyers will buy my updated Kindle book for just $.99 … then just write a nice testimonial. (Really – this is less than a dollar!) If you like it … please rate it five stars!

I don’t know if two people will do this favor for me, or 100 people, but the odds of you winning the Kindle Fire are far better than winning the lottery!

Top_Hat_Pin

Next Monday (11/03/14) I am going to take all of the testimonials directly from the Amazon page. Then I am going to toss them in a hat, and I am going to randomly pull out the winner of the new Kindle Fire.

Then I am going to have a new Kindle Fire shipped to your home … no matter what country you live in … just for buying a $1 book and writing a nice testimonial.

NOTE: I MESSED UP WHEN I SET THE PRICE FOR THIS CONTEST. IT IS UP ON AMAZON FOR FREE! BECAUSE THIS IS MY ERROR, I AM HONORING THE CONTEST, AND THE KINDLE FIRE WILL BE GIVEN AWAY! 

Oh, remember, if you don’t win you still get to download and read a really great book on surviving the holidays that will truly keep your stress level in check!

After this promotion, the price of my book will be raised back to the original price ($9.99).

Some of you may wonder why you have to purchase this book to take part in this promotion. After all, you can leave a testimonial, even if you don’t own the book. <Ahem!> There is some logic here!

Book buyers are given more credibility than non-buyers. If you write a testimony  on a book that you don’t own, Amazon doesn’t think it’s very credible. But if you actually buy it with your Amazon account, they think it’s highly credible, and place your testimonial higher on the page. This helps new people discover “Surviving The Holidays”, which will help give them a handle on their holidays.

So if you are willing to help get the newly revised version of “Surviving The Holidays” to a best seller status, use this link:  “Surviving The Holidays”.

Please download it this weekend (10/31/14 – 11/02/14) and post your testimonial before 11/03/14.

WE HAVE A WINNER!  MANY THANKS TO EVERYONE THAT ENTERED THIS CONTEST! OUR WINNER IS CARMEN WATERMAN!

Bonnie Cehovet

Author of “Surviving The Holidays”, co-author of “Seek Joy … Toss Confetti” on Amazon Kindle.

About Bonnie

A while back Catherine Chapman (www.tarotelements.com) and I ran a contest for Tarot blog headlines. Katrina Wynne sent us this headline – “About Bonnie”. Since we are at a New Moon, I decided it was time to tell you about Bonnie!

I have had a lifelong interest in religion and all things esoteric. (Deep crush on a young man that was Buddhist when I was in high school!) In my twenties, I studied a little astrology, colors and vibrations, a little Tarot, past lives and whatever else I could get my hands on. From the age of twenty-five to thirty I lived in Hawaii, where I met and worked with some truly interesting people and got to attend some awesome events. I also walked a year and a day with a Celtic coven, although I did not continue the practice after the coven disbanded.

When I moved to Las Vegas in my thirties I met some wonderful people in the Tarot field, and continued studying. I had the opportunity to attended classes and séances, and learned a great deal. It was while I was in Las Vegas that I made the decision to be a professional reader. For twenty-seven years I had worked in the field of hard science – I was a Medical Technologist (running tests in medical laboratories). The switch was a good one, although it would be almost three years before I found a line (phone line) to work for that was reputable.

I left Las Vegas and returned to my home state of Washington, where I have been for the past thirteen years. During that time I have been a professional Tarot reader, worked with the American Tarot Association (ATA) as Secretary for a short time, served several years as the Vice President and Secretary of the American Board For Tarot Certification (ABTC), and co-founder of the World Tarot Network with Deni Richter and Sue Teaford.

I have been doing Tarot related reviews and interviews for approximately twelve years now. My work appears on my blog site (www.bonniecehovet.wordpress.com), on the Meta Arts site (www.metaarts.com), and the Aeclectic Tarot site (www.aeclectic.net/tarot).

I have had the opportunity to attend two Readers Studios (RS 2003 and RS 2009), and to meet many of the incredible people that I had only spoken to and worked with online. What a gift that was! Thank you to Ruth Ann and Wald for making many peoples dreams come true through this delightful venue!

I have three projects available currently – a compilation of my older reviews (http://bonniecehovet.com/TarotInReview.html) , an e-book compilation of my “Women In Tarot” interviews (http://bonniecehovet.com/WomenInTarotebook.html) , and a larger print (and Kindle) compilation of the majority of my interviews (soon to be up on Amazon.com through Create Space). I also am under contract to Schiffer Books for a book on Tarot Birth Cards (in connection with the publication of Karyn Easton’s “Tarot Lovers Tarot”), due out in the fall of 2011.

My plans include moving back to Las Vegas, continuing to write Tarot related material, and begin a foray into the cozy mystery genre.

I am allowing myself to dream the big dreams – there is no other ay they are going to manifest. I look forward to talking to and working with many of you in the future. Life is exciting … and we all need to live it!
