Product Description

Synopsis

This book relates the path to higher consciousness through the colour, shape, and symbolic forms on the twenty-two Tarot cards. Detailed study and meditation of each card may release internally all that is involved with each level encountered on the journey towards the Light. These cards may be used in conjunction with the text or separately for meditation. When studied individually, a card can reveal the necessary steps that need to be taken to actualise one's potential. Tarot cards, or symbolic representations of the truth have always been used to help man relate not only with the mind, but internally, through the feelings invoked by the colours and forms.The nature of these cards is that they can produce a strong awakening of one's unconscious forces. They are like a spiritual mirror in which we can recognise and examine ourselves. We can then understand that the reasons for our fate lie within ourselves, and changes by the mere fact that we begin to react differently to everything that happens to us. These cards with the text are a valuable key to understand our present state, our past and in a deeper sense, how we create our future.

Included in the book are 22 pages of five-colour tarot illustrations.

Format: Paperback
I have read at least 15 books on the tarot. They all speak of different forms of divination throught the use of the cards. This book alone instead shows the true meaning of the tarot in the spirit in which these cards were created. A must addition to any library for anyone interested in the true path to spiritual enlightenment throught the use of the tarot.

The Awareness of the Soul's Awakening 17 Oct. 2009
By Cygnus Deneb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of the most astonishing and beautiful books I have read, from a human being who had access to profound and deep wisdom. The 22 cards of the Major Arcana that are listed show the development of the soul toward awakening and healing. Elizabeth Haich's explanations are written by a person who "knows" what it is she is writing about. Along with her book, Initiation, these are a must for anyone to read who has an interest in learning about the soul's growth and development and if you planning, by chance, to take a pilgrimage into ancient Egypt's remarkable past.

Great help for the journey of the seeker 17 Mar. 2010
By Casca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The focus of this book is the initiatory journey as depicted in the greater arcana of the tarot. Haich has deep knowledge of the human condition and the path of self realisation as it is mirrored in the tarot cards. She gives insightful discussion of each of the 22 cards and how they help us on the seeker's path to knowledge of ourself and ultimately God. Her understanding of the issues is deeper than most other writers on the tarot I have seen. The dedicated seeker will find much useful instruction in this book.

A good book, with some colour problems. 12 Jan. 2000
By Uri Raz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has an accompanying deck of the 22 major arcana cards - no minor arcana. The cards I bought come in a plastic slip - an improvement over the cardboard boxes.
The cards themselves are conservative & simple, no complex scenes in the background and they are similar to Rider-Waite cards and Italian decks, but I find them pretty. They certainly serve the purpose of the book.
[for some reason I couldnt find the deck in Amazon or B&N - I bought it in a shop in Haifa]
The cards, in colours, are reproduced in the book. The English source has the cards printed as the first 11 pages of the book, which is less convinient than the hebrew translation that has the card printed at the beginning of the section that explains it.
I really like the book because it explains every detail of every card. The only problem is that sometimes the explanation doesnt match the cards, e.g. the text says (in both the Hebrew and English versions) that the woman in the world card wears a red cloth while the picture (in both the English & Hebrew books and in the cards) she wears a blue cloth.

There's more to the Tarot than meets the eye 16 Dec. 2011
By Lesley Crossingham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
So many people believe (erroneously) that the Tarot is all about fortune telling! It is in fact, a mystical tool that helps the would-be adept to awaken spiritually, in other words, it is a pathway towards enlightenment. As most students of spirituality know, enlightenment is not a destination -- it is a process. The ancient ones always knew this, and during a time when most people were illiterate, the use of symbol and picture was used to convey this ancient wisdom.

This wisdom is revealed in this rather old, but timeless classic.

This book is a definite "must have" for anyone studying tarot or wishing to understand the spiritual journey. The author goes into great detail about the inner wisdom symbolised by the pictures on the cards. It is well written and quite concise and, perhaps most importantly, contains information not found in the usual run-of-the mill books on this topic!

Excellent and insightful! 24 Aug. 2013
By Michael J. Sutton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed reading this book. Its not really a book to teach you how toread cards, but ifyouread itthen I guarantee you will become a much better card reader. I feel the book is designed to help you understand your own inner journey. I could see where many recreationalreaders would dislike the book. There are so many better books to learn how to read the Tarot if you have not cultivated your own insight and intuitive skills. This book will help you ina deeper more profound way. Its not perfect, but it is a great book. I got a used hardback copy that still had the cards, the cards aren't great but the book is. Best of luck!
