This is not a parlor game, any more than are Tarot cards; nor is it New Age crystal sniffing, any more than are ESP or meditation. Despite the hostility of both our educational establishment, and Western institutionalized religions, a large percentage of the world persists in believing in reincarnation. Recalling past lives, however, is usually a hit-or-miss affair, occurring spontaneously (mostly in early childhood then disappearing from memory) but later in life requiring the aid of a trained therapist/ facilitator. Since there are testable, specific techniques for developing other latent human faculties (e.g., altered states of consciousness, ESP in its many forms) Knowles and Leblanc have applied similar principles to accessing our hidden past life memories. These unique cards represent symbolic memory templates of specific historical milieus. They are designed to be activated by correctly directed attention ... and then voila, the chances are good that deeply hidden (and multiple) memories will rise to the surface and you will finally know who you were and what you did as your former selves (and then you'll just have to live with it ... though that's another matter.) A fascinating and potentially valuable tool for developing self-knowledge, and for confronting certain persistent life problems and patterns that otherwise resist resolution. - John Anthony West, author-lecturer, originator of the 'Age of the Sphinx' controversy. --John Anthony West, author-lecturer, originator of the 'Age of the Sphinx' controversy.
You will know you have something special in your hands when you first hold the box that encompasses the book AWAKENING FAR MEMORY and the beautifully crafted REINCARNATION CARDS that accompany it. But proceed slowly, for you ll want to place yourself in the proper frame of mind when you start to work with the cards. Yes, I said work. As the authors remind us, the cards are not a type of game but a powerful tool offering insight and knowledge into the circumstances of other apparent embodiments . But that s not to say that the book is not extremely deep. What it is is a well researched examination of the idea of reincarnation. By slowly investing us with knowledge on this subject we are given the chance to weigh our current beliefs with what the authors proffer. This works superbly as a lead up to how you use the cards. Having a desire to find out where and what we may have been in a previous incarnation usually goes hand in hand with bits of mystery about our current embodiment. What you say, you have no bits of mystery? Well much to your delight when you ve chosen a card from each of the five groups and go back to read about their basic meanings, questions will be answered that you haven t even asked. So, find a quiet time and place and bring the book and the cards. Should you choose, add your pendulum to these and maybe even a little incense to create a far memory mood. Let your mind take in the information and combine it with some personal resonance. Becoming one with the Universe its past, present, and future will ensure that secrets are revealed to help in this incarnation and those to come.

The different categories of cards represent: (white/square) occupation, (indigo/circle) culture, (green/diamond) environment, (red/cross) theme (life purpose), and (purple/infinity) termination (how you died). They are medium quality stock and have a matt finish.
The book that accompanies this deck is hard backed and covered with indigo fabric. It is 204 pages in length. This book has an introduction and begins with evidence to support the theory of reincarnation, including reference. This information is followed by sections describing the benefits of researching past lives, historical evidence of human origins, along with a "How To" section and a page for each card and its meaning. There is an Afterward, Glossary, Selected bibliography (reincarnation and general), Resource List for Further Research and a page about each author. Each card is printed in black and white with a good description of what the drawings represent. The card pages are categorized to match the 5 types of cards--each section including an introduction.
The entire deck and cards come in a good quality cardboard box printed in color with some of the cards and the book shown on the front. The caption says: "Discover yourself! Remember what you were and who are! Remember past and future incarnations! Wake up from the dream of life!" It also includes a blurb that says: "Something genuinely new under the sun! A fascinating and potentially valuable tool for developing self-knowledge and for confronting life problems and patterns that otherwise resist resolution."
This deck was developed by John M. Knowles and Linda Leblanc. Among their many accomplishments, the authors have been affiliated with the Monroe Institute as Outreach Trainers, Workshop Leaders and Lecturers. Their work with the Monroe Institute has given them a deep understand of the principle of reincarnation. They developed these cards to help other deepen their understanding too.
I have been using these cards since their publication and have had nothing but positive experiences with them. In the past I've relied strictly on third eye movies to conduct past life readings, but I have found these cards to be very helpful and they add another dimension to the readings.
Although these are large sized cards, there is no need to worry about shuffling. The authors suggest using a pendulum to choose cards from each category, but I have successfully used them by having clients hold out a hand and sense the pull of energy from a particular card...this does, however, tend to leave them over-thinking and taking a very long time to choose (This usually means it won't be as accurate a reading in my opinion). After a card is drawn from each category, they are used to develop the story of a past life.
I have used these cards to conduct group readings sessions with great fun. As each person takes a turn, everyone intuitively brain storms about the cards until a past life is "fleshed-out". I have even used them as group healing sessions. Once the life information has been established, healing sessions were conducted on the issues that have been brought forward into the current life. I have also found the cards to be equally effective when used alone.
If you are interested in Past Life Work with other people, or just want to journal and work on your own "stuff" I think you will find Awakening Far Memory to be a accurate and flexible tool.
Although the author suggests using a pendulum to pick cards, I find the Law of attraction works with you drawing a card with a question firmly in your mind. A nice, easy to use tool that is not flashy or overpriced. In the genre of card decks, which is becoming big business, this is refreshing.
