Making Your Own Cards Becomes Additive With SoulCollage®
SoulCollage® is a process where you make a personal deck of cards from pictures you have taken from various magazines. These pictures could be anything from landscapes, people, advertisements, nature etc. Attending my first workshop Birkdale Facilitator Kate Stimson led our group through the steps to making our cards.

Once you have chosen the pictures you wish to use, you cut around the outline of the people in the pictures. You are given cards to paste the background scene and your cut out image onto, which ultimately is creating your personal card. The aim is to consult your cards by asking four simple words; "I am one who" and finish the sentence in relation to what the card is subconsciously saying to you. For example, I made a card with a photograph of three ladies sharing conversation over a cup of tea. When I came to say, "I am one who", I followed those words with the first words that came into my head to conclude my sentence with "who likes a good story with friends". So my card revealed my inner thoughts to say "I am one who likes a good story with friends" and so forth. Some of your inner thoughts can be quite confronting so it is imperative that you say the first thing that comes into your mind and not over think the answer. As you build up your deck of cards, it becomes very personal; a conversation you are having with your soul or inner wisdom.

There are four suits to your deck and these consist of committee (part of our psyche or inner personality), community (real people or places with whom you are in any type of relationship), companions (your physical chakra energies, normally an animal image) and council (archetypes). You can create them in any order; however, it is best to keep to the one suit at a time, so your mind is focused on just that topic.

There are also three transpersonal cards, together they represent the "one" of the "one and the many". These cards are Source, SoulEssence and Witness.

The system is based on the belief that there is one source from which everything manifests. The one source can be named differently in different systems of belief. The cards are not made for you to read for others. They are made so each of you can manifest your own unique potential; increasing balance, harmony, compassion, healing, and empowerment in your lives. It is said that we collage one aspect or one Neter of our self on one card. Thereby, when we create more cards, we are creating more aspects of our self.

Kate holds regular SoulCollage® workshops in The Redlands and in her classes, you not only have time to make many cards, you also have the opportunity of journal writing with what transpired from your cards when read. Each attendee is given a workshop manual on arrival with space in the back for journalling. For me, the day was very inspiring and surprising with what my cards revealed to me.

The workshop is a full day duration with a guided meditation to relax the mind and to bring forward your animal energies for the companion suit. Morning and afternoon tea is provided. BYO lunch. Kate can be contacted on 0459 569 690 or email calming.nature@hotmail.com or visit www.kates-calmingnature.com for further information on the course and future course dates.
