Ancient Oracle 
Deck and Handbook     

Since the beginning of time, people have been seeking alternative ways to find answers to questions for life’s circumstances. Practices such as reading tea leaves at the bottom of a cup to interpret the future, throwing yarrow sticks to see the patterns for an I Ching reading, consulting the Runes or pulling cards from the Tarot to get another view on a problem are just a few techniques for tapping into the Universe for a source of guidance and insight.

The Ancient Oracle Deck and Handbook can give you yet another perspective on your present state of existence. This system is based upon my artwork, philosophy and knowledge I’ve gained from artists, shamans, sages and teachers over the course of my lifetime. Much of the information in this book has been given to me from the Ancient Ones, a group of spirit beings who dwell in the caverns of the Appalachian Mountains, one of the oldest places on earth! This deck is not the Tarot, it is a set of insightful oracle cardsThe Ancient Oracle Deck or Handbook can act as a medium through which you may receive advice, prophesy, hints and whispers. These cards can open your heart, stimulate your mind and touch your soul.

I have been inspired to create these fifty-four cards and handbook by weaving together my paintings, my love of numerology, the elements and directions, my philosophy and intuitive writings. All my life, my artwork has given me incredible comfort, new understanding and remarkable insight into my past, present and future existence. As a result each painting became my teacher, my therapist and my inspiration. 

The Ancient Oracle Deck and Handbook can provide you with tools for transformation. I have seen it happen many times with the hundreds of readings I have given using these cards. A person draws a few cards and then their story unfolds as their imagination is opened.

Use the Handbook to help guide you to a better understanding of the messages in the cards. You can also use it spontaneously for a hint by holding it with your eyes closed and letting your fingers open to a page. Open your eyes, read it and be inspired! When you open to a certain page or draw a card, it is for a reason. By contemplating the card or page you can:

         • Access hints about issues and opportunities in your life
         • Take a look at a problem from another perspective
         • Gain insight on your life’s path.

Each image acts as a mirror, reflecting a personal meaning for you at the time you draw the card. Consider the feelings and thoughts that occur as you look at them. An intuitive response will come to you, sometimes one that you may not even expect. Have a notebook or journal handy to jot things down.

For over a decade I have worked with these images, numbers and symbols and arranged them into the present order with their pertinent Number, Element and Direction. The numerology used in the Handbook originated from information passed onto me orally by a powerful third generation Russian healer, Zonette Rossi. She was my first metaphysical teacher that I met back in the 70’s.  Her theory of numbers has been an integral part of my philosophy ever since.
