“Messages From The Light Meditation Deck” is a 52 card deck, with an accompanying 24 page booklet. The cards and booklet come in a 4.8” by 4.4” by 1.1” hard cardboard box, with a lift off top. The cover shows the image for the card “Choices”, while the bottom of the box shows the images for “Guidance” and “Integrity”, along with information about the deck. There are half-circle cutouts on both sides of the top of the box, to make it easier to take off.
We all need help dealing with the ordinary things in life – this deck is meant to help us see these ordinary things from a fresh perspective. We are invited to look inward as we focus on the (spiritual) images, opening our minds and allowing our subconscious thoughts to surface. The cards serve to help us focus on our lives, to center our being, and to become open to abundance and transformation.
The cards are 4” by 4 3/8”. The backs show a deep gold/brown, with a lighter gold towards the center, and a gold/white diamond shape in the center. The backs alone are quite conducive to meditation. The cards have yellow/gold border, with the card name in large black letters at the bottom. The images are done in pastels, and have a gentle “fantasy” nature to them.
Huntington gives suggestion for using the cards, such as drawing a card at random and using it as a seed for meditation, or holding the card in your mind’s eye throughout the day (you might want to take the card with you for reference). At the end of the book Huntington presents a five card Oracular reading, which is very easy, and can be used by anyone.
In working with the cards, Huntington suggests thinking about what the card title (word) and image mean to the reader. Look at how the card affects spiritual evolution, as well as how it applies to the everyday world. She asks the reader to look at what blessings they may have missed, and how they can approach life differently. Each card is listed with a small black and white scan, the card name, and a short paragraph on the energy represented in the card.
Examples from the deck include:
Centering: The image for “Centering” is two hands being held one within the other, with thumbs touching. Vibrations are coming from the center of the two thumbs.
The message for “Centering” is: “Dhyani Mudra. A point of Light; waves come, waves go. The point remains. Before action, come to center. Remain focused in the eternal.”
Group Work: The image for “Group Work” shows a group of people, dressed in white, sitting in a cave around what appears to be a campfire. There appear to be white birds (doves?) flying around them.
The message for “Group Work” is: “The power of the group is exponentially greater than one. Your goal may best be met with the aid of others. Join together and work for the greater good.”
Mindfulness: The image for “Mindfulness” shows the fingers of two hands arched together, centered around the flame of a candle.
The message for “Mindfulness” is: “Hakini Mudra. Remain focused, but alert to details, alternatives and contingencies. Resolution is at hand.”
This deck can be used by people of all ages and backgrounds. It helps ground and connect the individual with their higher selves, so that their perception of themselves, and their life situations, opens up. Beautiful imagery, and quite easy to work with.
