Welcome to Plant Essentials!
Have you ever felt drawn to visit certain sacred sites? Are you specially moved by pictures of some spiritual places? This new deck by Barbara Meicklejohn-Free connects you with the energy of 53 of the world's most sacred sites, uniquely covering in each card your past, your present and your future. Each card features a beautiful illustration by Yuri Leitch and the sites range from Big Horn Medicine Wheel and Devils Mountain in the US to Giza in Egypt and Die Externsteine in Germany to Newgrange in Ireland and Stonehenge in England. A helpful guidebook accompanies the cards and includes an introduction explaining Barbara's personal experience of interacting with sacred sites and how the energy of these places will help you to heal your past, understand your present and shape your future. It also explains the relevance of the Four Directions (north, east, south and west) and the Three Worlds (Lower, Middle and Upper), as well as the process of interpretation (a one-card reading). Also featured is an in-depth profile of each card, with an Energy Focus that summarizes the essence of the card, a mystical symbol to decipher, and information on the Lower World (your past), the Middle World (your present) and the Upper World (your future or potential). Each card profile also includes a meditation, exercise or ceremony through which you can directly engage with the site's sacred power. This deck has a broad appeal that reaches far beyond traditional Tarot and other divination cards, tapping into our curiosity for all things sacred and mystical, for travel and inner journeys, and for connecting with our ancestors.
