The Alphabet for Lovers – Ancient Kabbalistic Wisdom with a Modern Twist

Posted in Reviews | 0 comments

The Alphabet for Lovers is a love & relationship oracle based on the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet. It comes in a boxed set with 72 heart-shaped cards in an organza bag and a 104 page companion book (text only). According to Orna Ben-Shoshan who is the creatrix of the cards as well as the companion book, this oracle can be used to look at the dynamics within all kinds of relationships, such as between family members and work colleagues, as well as lovers. For each of the cards, Orna has also included a section about what the cards might mean to someone who is single – handy indeed if you are looking for an oracle to help you manifest a love relationship! This is not a fluffy oracle by any stretch of the imagination. It holds profound wisdom and covers every aspect of relating without shirking the dark corners and shadows: According to the Kabbalah, the 22 Hebrew letters are considered channels through which divine abundance flows into the Universe (…) Together with the constructive aspect of each letter, there is also an opposite destructive aspect that represents the potential damage that may occur if the nature of the flow of the letter’s energy is blocked. For each of the 22 letters, three relationship aspects have been chosen. In addition to these 66 cards, there are five additional cards – one each for the final letters in the Hebrew alphabet, as well as a ‘crazy heart’ card which is the most auspicious card in the whole deck. In spite of the amazing depth of insight provided through these cards, you need no prior knowledge of Kabbalah. Suggested questions to ask of the cards are: What happens with my marital life now, and how did we get to the present situation? What are the dynamics that control my relationship and the power balance with my partner? How can I make the best of the present situation? Can this relationship survive? Are we right for each other? Is this relationship moving toward marriage? What is the nature or personality of the partner I’m involved with?Is he/she faithful and can he/she be trusted? Does he/she really love me? What are the things that prevent me from achieving a significant relationship? (for singles) What kind of relationship can I expect with this person? Who will be my intended spouse? In addition to layouts with up to four cards, Orna has included two different methods for answering yes/no questions. Unique to this oracle is a way of predicting compatibility based on both people’s first names, as well as the first names of their mothers. For each of the cards, the companion book includes meanings for the following areas: General meaning for the relationship Advice for singles Personality Advice on how to deal with the relationship Each letter has an astrological correspondence which...

22 Keys to Healthy and Happy Relationships

Everything has been figured out, except how to live. ~ Jean-Paul Sartre The Tarot is known as the Book of Life and consists of two parts: The Major and Minor Arcana (Arcanum means deep secret wisdom). As you begin to unravel the mystery of the Tarot, you find that each Arcanum is a key that can help you unlock the secret to success in any area of your life. Mostly when people come for a love and relationship Tarot reading, they want to know if the one they love loves them back, if he or she will come back, if they will get married, when they will meet ‘The One’ etc… Very few people have realised the value of using the Tarot proactively, for manifesting the kind of relationship they dream of. Instead they move from one relationship to the next without transforming the underlying beliefs that re-create the same dynamic and scenarios over and over again. As always, it comes down to the question you choose to ask. He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes; he who does not ask a question remains a fool forever. ~ Chinese Proverb The sort of questions you would ask of the Tarot to unlock the potential to transform old outdated beliefs would for example be ‘What am I doing that is not working?’, ‘What qualities am I projecting onto my partner?’, ‘How can I make this relationship work?’, ‘How can I heal and prepare myself for a soul mate relationship?’, ‘What do I need to know about the dynamic we have created in this relationship?’ or ‘How am I responsible for creating this dynamic and what can I do to change it?’ Perhaps you already know how to use the Major Arcana keys for manifesting relationship happiness… Either way, I hope you will enjoy these brief key phrases to help you remember how to use the Majors for manifesting truly blissful relationships. THE FOOL can show you how you and your partner both thrive best when you give each other freedom to be, grow and explore. THE MAGICIAN reminds you the power of your words and how they can be used to harm or heal. THE HIGH PRIESTESS reminds you that there are always unknown depths in your lover, just as there are in you. Don’t assume anything about the one you love! THE EMPRESS will guide you to the delights of love-making and all other sensual pleasures. She can also be your ally if you wish to conceive. She can indicate that you or partner need to work through mother issues. THE EMPEROR can show you how to hold yourself accountable for all your actions. He can indicate that one of you cannot afford to neglect father issues. THE HIEROPHANT will help you persevere in committed relationships. He knows that there is always a way to make things work once you have committed. THE LOVERS is sometimes...
