How Do Impression Cards Work?
Impression Cards are a profound and direct way to communicate with your subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind is a key ‘gateway’ to your Higher Self and Universal Intelligence. The deck consists of 47 beautiful cards and accompanying book, each designed to elicit an intuitive response regarding your question. They are included as part of the package in the Women’s Retreat and are used in various ways throughout the week.
In order for you to understand the power of Impression Cards you must first understand some important things about your conscious and subconscious minds.
The subconscious mind is the culmination of all of your life, and possibly past life, experiences as well as the conclusions you made about those experiences. While it is connected with your soul and the Divine, it doesn’t contain all of Divine Truth and all of the infinite possibilities that are available to you in every moment. Instead, it contains your limited version of the Truth.
With that said, your subconscious mind THINKS it knows everything. And, in a way it does. It knows everything it knows. But, it doesn’t know everything that is possible. It can only think in the present. It doesn’t know the difference between what is real and what is imagined.
Your subconscious mind carries out and manifests directives given it by your conscious mind. Your conscious mind is much like the captain of your ship handing out orders to the rest of the crew. The crew below the deck, in your engine room, are carrying out the orders. The crew is your subconscious mind. Directives based on early survival decisions that you made or the genetic and ancestral influences that were affecting your life have a much higher priority. The only way to change those directives is to get access to your subconscious mind in a way that allows cooperation.
Your subconscious mind is constantly working, absorbing information in the background even when you’re sleeping or not paying attention. Impression Cards bring those subconscious directives to the surface so they can be healed and changed through your conscious awareness and your intention.
As you use the cards, keep your question in mind and continue to focus on asking, “What’s the best way to handle this situation?” Your mind is designed to solve problems. By asking “what’s the best way?” you are telling your mind that there is a workable solution that wants to be found. It will immediately go to work. This keeps your focus on creating a positive outcome and opens the door to creative solutions you didn’t think were possible. It creates a bridge to your subconscious mind and brings to the surface old beliefs that have been operating. You are now on your way to changing your history and creating the future you desire.
