by Doreen VirtueArchangel Raphael Healing Cards

This deck comprises of an instruction booklet and 44 cards; each named for an aspect of health and wellbeing. Each card offers a short written prayer and is decorated with a different original full colour painting. Seven artists were commissioned to produce the original illustrations and prints of the paintings can be purchased from the artists’ websites.

Doreen Virtue holds University degrees in counselling psychology and facilitates angel workshops throughout the world. She also writes books about angels and ascended masters. This latest deck is her fourteenth card pack based on working intuitively with angels. It specialises in contacting the Archangel Raphael, whose name means ‘God heals’ or ‘he who heals’ and it concentrates on gaining insight into health issues.

The cards can be used for oneself or for someone else. It is suggested that the enquirer asks a question, shuffles the pack and chooses a card or cards (two simple card spreads are provided for beginners). The booklet is then used to provide more information about the symbolism and meaning of the selection.

The presentation box is high quality, the cards well made and finished on the edges in gold leaf. The caduceus design on the card backs is the ancient staff of Hermes and is an international healing symbol. I enjoyed working with these cards which offer positive thinking and uplifting messages and help awareness of minor health issues.
