Using the Ageless Wisdom for Guidance, Insight and Greater Self-AwarenessKabbalah Cards

by Paul Roland and Sylvia Gainsford

This boxed pack contains a wall poster diagram of the Kabbalah glyph of the Tree of Life, a useful and informative explanation booklet and 33 cards (11 images representing the major energies of the spheres and 22 minor cards which represent the paths between them). The Kabbalah is a traditional Jewish metaphysical philosophy that contains ageless and universal wisdom. These cards have been designed for practical everyday use to overcome difficulties, make the most of opportunities, for divination, self-exploration and spiritual development. Sylvia P Gainsford is the artist and designer and she is a specialist in oracle card artwork. Paul Roland is the author of many valued esoteric books and is also a meditation and spiritual teacher.

The major cards are for meditation use, and the minor cards for readings. I chose Malkhut – Earth to meditate upon. The instructions are to look at the card, take deep breaths and enter the picture. This is a young, seated woman in a garden of flowering and fruit laden trees. On the ground is what could be a shield and a ripe apple. The booklet suggests that she has created this garden by drawing up plans, choosing the materials and has worked to produce the products. I was reminded of projects I am working on, and how I can reach good outcomes. I had a revelation to review my projects in order that they avoid depletion of the earth’s capacity to yield health and beauty. My minor card choice was the Hebrew letter Mem – the path between Venus and Jupiter. This card suggests a time of overcoming obstacles by compromise and diplomacy, versatility and flexibility and a need to go with the flow.

I enjoyed these cards very much and am confident that this will become one of my favourite decks.
