Product Description

From the Back Cover


In this oracular system of forty-five illustrated cards and its accompanying book of affirmations and meditations, the author of 'Medicine Woman' and 'The Woman of Wyrrd' brings us a powerful representation of the wisdom of the universe as it has been revealed to her through the Sisterhood of the Shields.

Used one card at a time, 'The Power Deck' builds self-esteem, one of the most important components of personal power, by examining both the positive and negative aspects of yourself – the pieces of your power and personal puzzle that are present and those that are missing. Each card features imagery reflecting Mother Earth and Father Sky, with an affirmation that conveys the lesson of power. A special collapsible altar is also enclosed to display the card chosen for meditation.

To heal the earth, we must first heal ourselves. ''The Power Deck',' writes Lynn Andrews, 'helps you find the primal source of your pain or limitation, so that it can be healed. Pick a card each morning and place it on your altar of empowerment… When you look at it… you will stop for a moment to move into that silent place within you, the place where truth is born… Each card promotes beauty, health, strength, and wisdom in your life.'

LYNN V. ANDREWS is also the author of 'Flight of the Seventh Moon', 'Jaguar Woman', 'Teachings Around the Sacred Wheel', 'Star Woman', 'Crystal Woman' and 'Windhorse Woman'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful artwork 23 Oct 2010
Beautiful artwork on these cards. Yet again a book and card set where the cards are held in a flimsy 'wallet' that doesn't support constant use, so lets down the overall feel of the set. Publishers please get your act together - it is so simple to have a cardboard box for the cards to live in next to the book.
The title words are good and useful but the paragraphs don't quite gel for me and my clients, but if we take a general view using some of the words then that is helpful. Hence a like **** rather than love ***** star vote.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful source for self discovery 12 May 2001
By "dotchi" - Published on Amazon.com
My cousin bought me this deck and book and since then I have used it in many ways and for many reasons. I feel a real connection to this deck. It can tell me more about myself and others than any set of tarot I have worked with. This is a wonderful way to learn about yourself. It is a great way for self improvement and even my great friend who reads tarot at fairs has started coming to me in times of need because he feels it is more accurate. Wonderful book! Wonderfully written!

5.0 out of 5 stars cards that will guide you through life 21 Feb 2000
By C.Delmarcel - Published on Amazon.com
For years this deck of cards has been my personal teacher, I take them with me wherever I go. Especially in times of great need, when you feel lost or hurt, the advice from the cards can turn your life around. I find that they are best understood after reading Lynn V. Andrews' books, as the information on the cards is quite condense. Beautiful pictures on the back !

5.0 out of 5 stars experienced card reader 5 Jun 2005
By Sandra Cointreau - Published on Amazon.com
I love these cards, but find the book a duplication of the cards. As with the tarot, I shuffle and feel when to pick out the card(s) of particular reference for the day. Like the tarot and the I Ching, spirit speaks and the message in the card(s) chosen is always relevant to the events of the day, as well as enlightening and motivating. For those not experienced in other methods of connecting to intuition and the gift of prophesy, these cards are a great way to get started. For those who are experienced, these cards augment and clarify a reading. I recommend them highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic visually and in regards to content. 13 Aug 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This deck provides a lovely way to connect the outside world and events with your own internal understanding and meaning. Each card represents an aspect of life -- represented both in writing and with some of the most provocatively wonderful artwork I've ever seen. The text on each card becomes a meditation -- a springboard -- to help you focus on what is happening with you and your surroundings. Another great tool for growth and depth.

2.0 out of 5 stars Short summary: New Age pap illustrated by surreal cliches. 16 Jan 2002
By Daisy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This deck of 45 cards purports to reveal the secret wisdom of the universe, but the "secrets" turn out to be the usual stuff. Destiny, centering, creativity, balance, courage-- these truths have been around for a very long time. The pictures are beautiful, but there is a certain sameness and repetition to them. Floating globes, the planet Earth, sky where the ground should be, bursts of light, waterfalls, a lot of trees, flowers, rocks and birds: it's as though the artist was working with a small pile of artistic concepts which he combined in random and different ways for each picture.
Each illustration has an explanation on the back, but I don't think it would make much difference which words went with which picture. The Zen Garden with Floating Earth, the Buddha with Orchid and Flying Eagle, Stonehenge in Space, the Boat and Heron with Floating Globes: these could be combined with Magic, Truth, Essence, Virtue, Innocence, or any one of the 45 descriptions.
The wisdom of the cards is the standard New Age stuff. "Know that the powers of the universe are within you." "Your being is like a spirit lodge." "We are all in need of world harmony." "Awaken the power of your will, and find your joy and your laughter."
I was disappointed in this deck.
