Unlike knowledge, the energy within an 'ah-ha' moment literally shifts ones ability to respond. The Innerwyze process activates intuitive insight while fostering revelatory experience and creative expression.
I don't believe in coincidence and it is not lost on me that the very year I decided to launch a deeply introspective tool the world is placed on "lockdown". I think that's pretty good validation for this project....even if it comes with a bit of a wink.
If, as they say, hindsight is 20/20, what is foresight and what is directing it? If it comes from within then it is the ability to know and to follow that which is unfolding in the moment...often before it is made physically manifest. If it is outer directed it can easily send us in circles. Walking in the synchronistic experience of intuitive awareness expands ones opportunities to know themselves deeply and therefore have a deeper relationship with life itself. This has been my experience as I allowed the evolutionary process of creating what was to become this introspective tool. The paintings from which these cards were developed were like children being born to me. Each having it's own personality and gifts to reflect back to me , time and time again, that which I need to see. My hope in sharing them is that they offer such insights to you as well.
Our intuition alerts us that there is more than meets the eye and then we can see what only moments before was completely hidden. Simply using the cards activates, exercises and strengthens our intuitive senses. This enables an awakening in our personal lives to the multi-dimensional layers of reality we actually live in and offers powerful healing properties of integration and transmutation.
Simply sifting through the cards slowly, or staring deeply into one card while taking in the shape-shifting imagery, awakens and expands the naturally intuitive aspects of our senses.
As introspective and transmutation tools each card is entirely dependent upon the viewer for meaning. In this way no one card ever holds the same meaning twice. Neither does it provide the same revelation. In fact, the beauty behind these multi-dimensional images, is that a number of people can look into the same card and see very different things. This is because each card is designed to be an image-mirror which reflects the individual peering into it. Coupling this with the intention for which the cards are being engaged offers powerful insight, personal revelation and deep healing.
Just as the paintings that inspired the Innerwyze cards, each image hold a mystery. Because of this, the cards can be used in a variety of ways. I encourage each person to 'listen' for the way they can best engage the cards to meet their needs. Here's just a few ways I was guided to use them:
My experience with the informative nature of creative energy began decades ago. As a result I became acutely acquainted with the many levels of conscious awareness. Awareness works kinda like a muscle. The more you exercise it the stronger it gets. The more I challenged my beliefs, the more my consciousness expanded and the more attuned I became to subtleties that I realized most were oblivious to. The more I nurtured this attunement, the more my awareness heightened and my individual intuition grew. My work became one of utilizing the raw material of life itself to create a mystical work of art of my own life. I believe this is truly what it means to become a mystic and it is a never-ending process. I discovered how beliefs themselves stymie the expansion of consciousness. Breaking beliefs as they arose became an ever unfolding journey as did the relationship I cultivated between my everyday self and the mystic within. As a result my artwork began to evolve in an unusual direction. Eventually it expanded to aid others in the exploration and development of their own mystical path. While I had no idea this was the direction it was moving, eventually a series of my intuitive paintings morphed into the Innerwyze Cards. Those cards then morphed into an ongoing textile series of art-quilts I am currently creating. How this type of transition occurs and how to utilize the informative nature of creative energy is at the core of everything I now share.
The Innerwyze cards began as paintings which spontaneously emerged during a highly focused period of my life which left little room for distraction. A very introspective period, I had no idea where these small works of art would lead me. I certainly never imagined the introspective cards they have become. Because I simply followed where the work carried me, I see no reason to treat the sharing of these cards any differently. One step at a time, I simply intend to put them 'out there' and let those meant to find them, find them. For this reason I am self-publishing and self-packaging a limited artisan edition without engaging standard commercial avenues.
Each deck consists of 60 cards comprising 30 cards each of horizontal and vertical decks. As a fiber-artist, I also chose to handcraft individual, eco-printed textile wraps for each purchase. These simple cloths are original, one-of-a-kind pieces made specifically for each artisan deck. A personal letter accompanies each deck outlining some ways I like to engage the cards. The packaging and letter are a limited artisan publication and will differ from deck to deck, making each purchase a unique, one-of-a-kind collectors item. The price is $125.00 and the Innerwyze Cards can be purchased through the Etsy link below. Thank you so much for your interest.
