Reincarnation CARDS

I came across an interesting reference in a book I am currently reading. In it was The Scientific and Medical Network. Book references caught my attention and of course the serious and scientific approach to the studies of consciousness. One in particular - Reincarnation Cards.

Awakening Far Memory
This is something different. Reincarnation Cards: Awakening Far Memory consists of a boxed set of sixty-one beautifully designed cards, intended to evoke intuitive responses, together with a handsomely produced hardback book. In his Foreword, Professor Stanley Krippner describes the publication as embodying “an imaginative and novel technique specifically designed to probe into one’s hypothetical reincarnations.”

Referring to reports of glimpses of events and activities occurring before one was born, he comments that “whether these glimpses represent past-life memories, archetypes of the psyche, or metaphors of current life activities, they can be linked with and evoked by the cards, following the suggested rituals described by the authors.”

This, however, is not the main purpose of this project, which is to provide a means of encouragement to take a fresh look at consciousness, “the pattern of awareness, intention and reflection that permeates the cosmos.” For the authors, the world is not ‘outside’ or external’, except apparently to the physical body. They maintain that consciousness is “primal and ubiquitous”, that the universe is not ‘out there’ but ‘in here’, not composed “of an hypothesised matter, but is the manifestation in time and space of one infinite superconscious Being, or Cosmic Mind.”

They continue: “This Cosmic Mind, to which the individual’s conscious and unconscious egoic mind are essentially connected, contains all knowledge of all creatures and events, past, present and future, in a timeless NOW. In relation to you as an individual, high-level being, it contains, inter alia, your complete incarnational history, past and future.”

Has anyone heard of this research or reincarnation cards? Anyone familiar with The Scientific and Medical Network? Please feel free to comment on the site and if you have or purchase these cards - I would love to hear all about them.

Wow - I've never heard of them! Thank you for posting. :)


It sounds intriguing - I will have to keep an eye out for them. I'm game for almost anything - it would certainly be an interesting experiment to try.


If anyone's tried them - I'd love to hear some stories, too!

I found them on Amazon if anyone is interested in checking them out :)


They had some great reviews, including:

Buddhism is founded upon a belief in reincarnation and that past lives influence how one is born into their present life. Past life regression is a metaphysical belief that we can access our past lives. Now Ger Maa Publishers of Cypress have published a book-and-card set "Reincarnation Cards: Awakening Far Memory", the collaborative effort of John Knowles and Linda Leblanc, to help by providing tools that anyone seeking to recover forgotten memories of previous incarnations and past life experiences. The informative hardcover book and the sixty-one full-color illustrated cards are specifically designed to evoke intuitive responses in a personal quest for past life access. Now distributed by Lucky Press for the United States, "Reincarnation Cards: Awakening Far Memory" is a unique and enthusiastically recommended addition to Metaphysical Studies reference collections in general, and the personal libraries of non-specialist general readers with an interest in reincarnation and past life therapies.
This is the best book that I have ever read that assists you in the journey of finding your past lives. The information that is included in this book is well written and clearly understandable. I am amazed at the intellecual theory in this book! I would highly suggest that you wake up your memories with these cards. Every few days I bring them out and add more information to my journal and it is incredible how all of a sudden you start having a picture of a previous life!
You will know you have something special in your hands when you first hold the box that encompasses the book AWAKENING FAR MEMORY and the beautifully crafted REINCARNATION CARDS that accompany it. But proceed slowly, for you'll want to place yourself in the proper frame of mind when you start to work with the cards. Yes, I said work. As the authors remind us, the cards are not a type of game but a powerful tool offering insight and knowledge into "the circumstances of other apparent embodiments".
But that's not to say that the book is extremely deep. What it is is a well researched examination of the idea of reincarnation. By slowly investing us with knowledge on this subject we are given the chance to weigh our current believes with what the authors proffer. This works superbly as a lead up to how you use the cards.


Having a desire to find out where and what we may have been in a previous incarnation usually goes hand in hand with bits of mystery about our current embodiement. What you say, you have no bits of mystery? Well much to your delight when you've chosen a card from each of the five groups and go back to read about their basic meanings, questions will be answered that you haven't even asked.


So, find a quiet time and place and bring the book and the cards. Should you choose, add your pendulum to these and maybe even a little incense to create a "far memory" mood. Let your mind take in the information and combine it with some personal resonance. Becoming one with the Universe it's past, present, and future will ensure that secrets are revealed to help in this incarnation and those to come.

Thanks for this, Deborah and Aili. :thumbsup: It's always fun to play a little between all the serious pondering, so I might just order these cards myself. :D


Also - I think this could be a very good way of introducing reincarnation and past life research to friends and relatives that like Tarot and other forms of divination. :)

Considering that I have several tarot decks, this is definately something I am interested in! However, it is just as likely to be something to just add to my collection. It's hard to really get a feel for the cards based on the small pictures shown on Amazon.com, but it is probably similar to other decks of tarot or oracle cards, just with a different twist.


I have heard of people using regular tarot decks to intuit past lives, though I've never experimented with that myself. I would probably buy this one just to have a deck I associate only with past lives and not other aspects of my life. I am also interested in the book it comes with, basically to explore the theories behind using cards to discern past lives.

My cards arrived in the post today - :D I've had a quick look and I can't wait to try them as they look like a lot of fun. The book looks very nice in a cloth bound cover, and together with the cards, they are presented in an attractive looking box:

img0063500x375am5.jpg



The cards come in 5 categories: Occupation, Culture, Environment, Theme and Termination. The idea is to relax and clear your mind, state your intention, that you wish to receive information about a past life, ask your higher consciousness for guidance. Using your hand, or a pendulum, you select a card from each category, and after looking at it, you write down the first impressions that come to you. The rest of the book is devoted to a few paragraphs on each individual card, you read the passages for the cards that you selected, and see if anything resonates with you, or whether they invoke any feelings or impressions.


Hopefully, and if it works, putting all the information together at the end could give you details of a past life. So I'm looking forward to trying this later and seeing what comes up - : angel

Good! I can't wait to hear about it :thumbsup: My fingers are itching to get hold of a copy myself :D

Oh Chris let us know how you go ahead with them. I'm actually keeping my fingers on the ordering button at the online shop. I'm gonna order them from a shop in Europe, the distributor is different from the one on Amazon, and I'm curious if the packaging is identical with yours in the US :thumbsup: Plus I might get it faster ordering it from here. Will let you know when they arrived!

Thanks Kislany I will do - :)


I think the packaging is the same in Europe as it is in the US. I'm just looking through the book now, and there is an official website, just click here.

Hehe just had to comment on this one. When I saw Chris's cards that's exactly what I thought as well. I have 21 tarot decks, and this new deck, although not exactly tarot (but it's divination nonetheless) would round it up to 22 :D

Oh just saw your note Chris. Thanks for the link, I'll check it out! Have just ordered the cards, should be here within a week or so.

Darn, I hoped they were greeting cards! "Happy Rebirthday" or "Good luck in your new body!" :laugh:


But seriously, they sound interesting.

True, I would love to see more memorabilia about reincarnation! :thumbsup: You reminded me of a shirt I once saw a woman wear. On the front it said "I've been born again." On the back it said, "And again, and again, and again..." She bought it at a religious conference, so unfortunately I don't know where to find one.


Anyway, thanks for posting the picture and information, Chris. It is much more informative than the amazon.com description. I think I've been convinced to place an order. :)

Chris, my set just arrived :thumbsup: Looking great, just like in your picture. The actual cards are a bit bigger than tarot cards, remind me in size of the angel type cards. Looking forward to find a quiet moment and give them a go :)


Did you have time to play with them?

I haven't had a lot of time to have a proper go of the cards yet, I've read the book though and that was very interesting.


I've tried the cards once, but it was only a quick go (because I was being impatient) - : angel.. They didn't work for me that time, but obviously I need to relax and focus more, but I think the idea behind it all is very good. I'm not a great believer in things like astrology and tarot reading etc., so I'm slightly skeptical about how the different category of cards that you select are 'linked' with each other (but hey, I'm willing to have a go!) - :D - I do however like the way that the different explanations for the cards in the book attempt to 'trigger' a memory in the reader.


I'm curious to know how you get on with them Kislany, are you going to use them with a pendulum? I'm going to try that next time. Let us know how you get on, and I'll do the same (when I get round to it) - :rolleyes:

Cool! I am sooo putting that deck on my list! They work the same way as oracle cards. I have lots of decks. And, I was raised to not use tarot or any oracle cards. Chris, it's SUPER important to be grounded and to sit quietly for a few moments before using them. Make sure that you do something to relax, like have cool, soft music on. Then sit quietly and take a few deep breaths. I always visualize Divine, holy light coming through my crown chakra, and filling me, and extending out to cover the entire room. You can ask for guidance from your higher self, and also from anyone you feel drawn to, like AA Michael, or whomever. Then shuffle, cut the deck, and intuitively you'll know when to stop. :) When you're grounded and focused on what you're doing, it is never wrong. :) Good luck! :D

Thanks for the tips Keani - :) I'll certainly try that. I still haven't had the time to sit down and have a proper go on them yet.

ahh, sure, Chris! :) I've only been using the cards for just over a year. My family would perform an exorcism if they found out I use them! hahahaha! Have fun and let us all know what you discover! And, I'm still watching all those videos you posted! I LOVE them!! :) soooo cool!

So...I was feeling a bit restless this evening, and when I saw the cards, I said 'why not'. So I take out the cards and book from the box and I start reading a bit on Dedication and Acknowledgements from the authors. At some point the authors write 'No project of the magnitude of this work could possibly have been brought to fruition by two people working in isolation in a remote corner of the Mediterranean world without outside help." So me curious as to which neighbouring country is harboring these two people (me living in one of these Mediterranean countries), I flip back to the first page of the book. Which says:


Copyright bla bla bla...


Ger Maa Publishers


(Member of the Psychognosis Group)


PO Box bla bla ...CYPRUS!!!


I'm like :eek::eek::eek::laugh::laugh:


And then it slowly came back to me...I actually saw these cards last year I think at the Mind Body Exhibion exhibition that was held in the city and the name Linda Leblanc did sound familiar. No wonder, since I still have the brochure from them that I took during the exhibition.


Now how's THAT for a synchronicity! If this doesn't tell me to go for it, I don't know what :laugh::thumbsup:


This is the Psychognossis website if anyone is interested in reading more about them (written in English and Greek as well).

Kislany! I love synchronistic events!! :D I hope that you did your spread and found out some interesting things. You have to let us know. This deck made its way to you--even after you passed by it at the expo. I hope I can get the deck soon! (I've got car repairs to do...ugh...no fun spending that money!)

St4cey welcome to the forum! If you get hold of the cards, let us know how you found them.


As for me, I do have the cards, but somehow didn't have yet the chance to sit down for a mo. and work with them. Hope during the next few weeks, when we're off work, to try them out.

Reincarnation Cards (update?)


Hello Everyone,


I know, I know there's that EmmaHolt with yet another new thread. I too am sick of seeing my name posted all over this forum but what can I say? It's become a fullblown addiction.


Anyway was just reading the old thread posted by Deb regarding Reincarnation Cards wherein ChrisR and Kislany both said that they bought the cards and would give an update. However, they never did. At least not on that thread. Maybe somewhere else??


So this is a shoutout to ChrisR and Kislany or to anyone else who may have purchased the box of "Reincarnation Cards: Awakening for Memory" Do the cards work??? Have they actually helped you to remember a past life?


I really want to know if they work because I'm having a terrible time trying to remember my PLs.


Thanks,


Emma

Emma, i'm ashamed to admit that the cards have been sitting in the box and I've only had one half-hearted attempt at using them. I do keep looking at them though and now that you've brought the subject up again, I will make some time to have a proper go on them, maybe tomorrow morning as I don't have anything planned - :rolleyes:
 

EmmaHolt

Shame on you, Chris :laugh:


Please do use them tomorrow. I'm soooo curious. I anxiously await your update.


BTW thanks for the speedy response. I beckoned and you answered immediately, even though I'm here in Canada and you're in the U.K. Man, I love the internet.


Good luck with those cards. We're counting on you!! :thumbsup:

tsk, tsk, tsk.....I agree with Emma, Chris! Geesh, I still have that deck on my list! I would buy it, but I have TONS of expenses for starting up my new job Monday.....and not to mention Logan started (omg, that's an Irish name, isn't it??? see my other post in another thread--I was talking about red hair, lol, in 'Who Do You Tell') school this month. So, there you are, with your deck collecting dust, while we await anxiously to hear all about it. :cool I see how you are. :D

Ok I've just finished my first serious attempt at using the cards, and I can honestly say that they didn't really do much for me - :( But they do make it clear in the book that it takes practice, and several attempts to yield any positive results.


I spent a long time clearing my mind and focusing on the cards before I made my choice, I 'asked' to be shown the details of a past life through my selection, I tried to use a pendulum to begin with, but I just couldn't keep the stupid thing still so I gave up on that idea and manually picked my five cards, one from each category.


Considering the diversity of each card in each category, most of the five cards that I chose surprisingly corresponded with each other. I thought a photo might be better to illustrate this rather than just typing them out, so here are the cards that I drew from the pack:

cardscw0.jpg



The idea is that each card collectively forms a 'bigger picture', and that picture is meant to hopefully trigger a past life memory. My cards appear to depict a life as a farmer in India or Asia, who's failed crops led to starvation. The love/indifference card suggests the breakup of a partnership, where the emotional impact leads to hatred. There is a fair size write up on each individual card in the accompanying book, suggesting different meanings for each card, in the hope that one of them may provoke a memory.


I spent several minutes trying to focus on a possible past-life as depicted by the cards, but unfortunately, none of it resonated with me. It was very interesting though, and I will use them again. Even though it didn't work for me the first time, I would still recommend the cards to anyone. I would imagine that anyone with psychic abilities would have a good chance of success with these.
