What do I use the Yantra Wisdom Cards for?
The Yantra Wisdom Divination Deck offers you a way to shift your perspective through creativity, ritual and reverence. Yantras are ancient geometrical patterns that represent different forms of divinity. The creation, as well as contemplation & meditation on them, has the power to change you, by repeatedly engaging in the question “who am I?” A yantra, like a symbol as defined by Carl Jung, “represents in itself something that is not wholly understandable, and that it hints only intuitively at its possible meaning.” In other words, when something is difficult to speak of or understand, the unconscious creates a representation of it, to better connect with and remember who you truly are.
What do I get with the cards?
The Yantra Wisdom divination deck of 40 cards. It comes with a booklet which includes information on each yantra, affirmations and suggestions on "how to shift". They come in their very own box to support their vibration and sacredness. This box also doubles as a traveling altar.

AUM CYCLE—THREE CARDS
AUM has 4 stages: beginning, middle, end and beyond. Creation, ruled by Brahma consciousness as expressed in the Mandukya Upanishad, is the generator, symbolic “Aaaa” sound. Sustainment, ruled by Vishnu, the organizer represents the “Uuuu" sound. Destruction, powered by Shiva the transformer, ends with the “Mmm” vibration. The fourth stage is the beyond, where the individual self and the universal self are One.
Shuffle the deck. As you are shuffling, picture clearly the idea, situation or endeavor you want clarity around. Choose a card from any place in the deck. The first card you will choose represents present time (place it in front of you), the second card represents the past (place it to the left of the first card) and the third card is symbolic of the future (place it on the right of the first card). The story that the three cards weave together is the fourth stage of the Aum cycle or the silence beyond. Use the Aum Cycle Card Spread to find clarity for a situation or endeavor.
