"He who knows others is learned: he who knows hirnself is wise ' Lao Tzu Tao Te Ching
Welcome to your journey with the Chakra Wisdom Oracle The stories associated with the cards in this deck are the result of my own spiritual journey that began with a near-death experience in 1988 I'd always had a touch of the psychic (as my grandmother would say), but one day things got really Interesting when I suffered a strange dehydration and passed out I left my body and floated up to the light When I regained consciousness, angels began talking to me But I kept this to myself -1 was In hospital and thought It unwise to tell the doctors that I was heating voices!
The angels had found a direct route to me. Over the next five years they recited what I believed to be simple children's stories or fables. The angels insisted I write the stories down But I had no idea what to do with them, so I locked them in a drawer for nearly 20 years.
you may be wondering what sparked my interest in these stories after sc long I wish the explanation were more spiritual, but the truth is that a friend. Paul, a very talented graphic designer, came to me distraught because he was in trouble financially He needed to earn $2,000 by the end of the week - and It was already Tuesday
As we spoke, I looked In a drawer for a notepad and came across the original fable writings. There in front of me was the fable of "The Carrot-coloured Cloak" (which relates to the Perseverance card, see page 28>. This story Is all about not quitting before the miracle takes place And that was my message for Paul I reminded him that we never earn money, we attract It. I explained that he had to set an intention and believe above all.else that it could happen I turned him loose with the fable and the meditation - and of course to make phone calls, for work, I mean, believe in God. buf lock your
doors, right? Thursday morning a client Paul hadn't heard from in over a year phoned him He needed a rush ,ob, and would pay Paul $2,000 the following day if he could do it overnight. That did It. Paul was convinced m the power of manifesting. Within two months, he had created $16,0001
Over time, as I worked with the fables and they helped more and more people. I realized that together the fables embodied in these cards formed a spiritual toolkit Because they appear so whimsical, they catch us off guard and give us lessons without the lecture, preparing us for life's challenges:
Bach fable was told to me by a different angel with its own unioue voice, which is why the stones are all so individual. The fables all came to me in distinct colours, each one bathed in a hue that created a backdrop for the story Each individual colour powerfully conveyed Its Fable's message in a visual
way - while concepts can be A 4H&
hard to grasp, colour is universal
and offers an alternative way to grasn the heart of the story. I
soon realized that the colour of each fable naturally reflected one of the colours of the seven major chakras - wheels of energy in
the human body. As each chakra represents specific life areas. such as communication or spirituality, another vital layer of information emerged through this connection.
Seven major chakras
77?e most/mporrant chakras fit* on tne same fine as che oocy s some each one fmKea co a different colour
The hignest chakra, the crown chakra, is often visualized as violet However in the fables that the angels revealed to me. the highest Chakra was associated with neutral colours, such as white, grey and tauoe. I believe this is because Spirit - the universal consciousness outside us - is itself neutral.
When I began studying the chakras. I felt as though I couldn't understand what the scholars exoounded on in their teachings The entire concept seemed inaccessible to me Yet I like everyone else, had chakras. Why then was i t that I felt excluded from them?
Then it hit me. I had to look at the chakras as they applied to me. If our spiritual relationship with the God of our understanding isour own. why not also our understanding of our chakras? It they reside inside us all. they must have a personal meaning ror each and every one of us. Let me cite this example: you walk into a store to buy a pair of shoes. Does one size fit all? Of course not!
And what if. like us. our chakras are ever-changing to reflect our circumstances? What if we could use cards to read our chakras and pinpoint exactly wnat is going on with us? I believe that our chakras are ever-evolving and that we can read our own internal chakra state easily using cards. Our cnakras relate ro our lives today, not iust to some theory in ancient books. To help you understand this, each chapter in this book opens with a look at now the relevant chakra relates to you The insignts you receive as you learn about each cnakrg will make this a profoundly personal experience.
All the information you need is already within you This is as my motto says, “enlightenment made simple'
How to set intentions with the cards
As well as using these cards to answer direct Questions or shed more light on a particular situation (see pages 82-3 and 91-4). you can also use them ro help you set intentions and manifest whatever your heart desires! Before starting to work with rhe cards in this way. it's
important to have a clear idea what you really want Write down whal you desire in these areas of your life personal, financial and creative.
- 1. Personal - This can be anything from a love relationship to a new circle ct friends; Choose lust one thing to work on at a time. Make a list of ores and cons of bringing this thing into your life.
- 2. Money - Leaving our the "how" simply come up with ar. amount that you wish to manifest each month Just looking at the numbers can give you a sense of relief and by making your intention tangible you offer the universe a signal that you are ready for change.
- 3. Creative - How do you choose to express yourself0 Write down your goals, whether you want to create special effects for the movies, make pottery or lose some excess weight. State your goals positively Say "I'm committed to being in great physical health" instead of "I'm not going to be fat anymore." Now list all the reasons why you must have these goals
Once you have a clear idea of each intention, use the cards to do readings on it to check Its strength and learn more about its meaning and how to achieve It (see pages 84-90)
Once a week, go through your list of what you Intend to manifest, then oick a card Read the fable and allow its words and meaning to bring you new awareness in manifesting your intentions
Meditating with a card
In each card profile is a meditation. A few deeply contemplative minutes provide a perfect way of interacting with the fable Once you have freed yourself from distractions, read the meditation Close your eyes, breathe deeply, relax and allow your mind to journey Into the meditation. Try to accept whatever happens and do not ludge yourself - not all meditation is profound When you are ready, open youi eyes If you like, write down your experience. And remember that meditation is simply time- spent with yourself, an opportunity to get in touch with the things that matter most to you
Let your intuition be your guide
Vital, sexual, passionate, energized, forceful
The first chaxra relates to the source of your energy and to how you are building your foundation. Think of the root chakra as a platform. The red cards represent the support you have created or are creating for your future.
The root chakra cards show us a new way to bring our dreams to fruition. They denote beginnings and reveal how to create a solid foundation in tangible form. Keep this in mind: if you are not yet creating what you say you desire, you may need to grow your energetic root deeper and wider into the earth plane.
An abundance of red cards in a reading is a strong indication of how you are building your foundation, and will offer energetic ideas about what is necessary for you to manifest. These cards represent the beginning of an undertaking - and may guide you away from the old ideas that no longer work tn your life.
Red cards ask. "How does this card represent the place from which I can create something extraordinary?"

Learn to observe your emotions
Active, motivating, optimistic, emotional, sociable, enthusiastic, affectionate, humanitarian
The orange cards represent our emotions and how we relate to them. In the second chakra you can learn emotional discipline, if you choose. You need to master the skill of steering your emotions as you would a ship on the high seas. This Is very important in manifesting.
The orange cards reveal your emotional experience in a particular situation If you are struggling with your feelings, look back to the red chakra - the root chakra - for the answer. Why? Because you source your emotional experience from a particular foundation or belief created In your root chakra. This helps you to understand where your emotions are coming from.
Next, observe your feelings rather than act on them, and your angels can speak directly to you through the emotions revealed in these cards. However, you must stand fearlessly and observe your emotions; if you can do this, you have begun the journey into manifestation. You can walk the path you have previously only wished for.
Master emotional discipline and you master how to manifest anything!

Creative, intellect, precise, cooperative, reasonable. Innovation, originality, wisdom, instinct
The yellow cards of the third chakra (the solar plexus chakra) reveal our planning processes. Do we have a logical or a scattered approach? Because they represent thinking and problem solving, yellow cards reveal our ability to resolve issues. In essence, they show what's on our mind.
In Yellow, we turn on the lights and let the spirits know we are home. If we don't let them know where we are, they cannot bring us our desires. Ultimately, the third chakra relates to our instinct and to how our life is directed by it. When we can see how our instinct guides our thoughts, we will understand why we do what we do.
And when it relates to our emotions, instinct is frequently the first thing that gets shut down. Remember what I said? Look to the previous chakra (the second chakra in this case) if you feel blocked. Every decision we have ever made is made in a flash: to move forward or to stop. There is a moment, a split second in which we decide. In this chakra you decide If you will allow magic Into your life

This book and deck are dedicated to the angels who came to me in the 1980s. They visited because they knew that I would shelter them, as my children, and because, as I was told at the beginning, I would one day make it happen
And I did. In February 2013. after five years of successfully selfpublishing the original deck. I was guided to travel to London and create the angelic team that the Chakra Wisdom Oracle needed
I have so many people to thank. Rachel Pollack, who taught me to read Tarot over 25 years ago and is a brilliant and enlightened teacher Monte Farber and Amy Zerner. who i met when they were first married - about 30 years ago now - and who are still amazing supportive friends and an example for many. Christopher Wold, my agent and one of the brightest, smartest and most sincere people I know - I am honoured to have him represent me Jo Lal, my publisher at Watkins Publishing. I knew the moment I met her that I wanted to work with her - and my psychic sense was correct. Vicky Hartley and Sam Collins in publicity are brilliant, as is my fantastic editor. Fiona Robertson; we are all blessed by her insight and ability to cull the gems from some of my scramblings John Tintara in New York, who is a delight to work with on marketing -1 cherish our weekly brainstorms. Emma. Sian and all the others who I got to know in London. What can I say? I miss the tea and the fun! And James Spackman, our managing director, who leads us all with integrity and kindness. Just once in their life, everyone should have the experience of working with a team they love as much as I love everyone at Watkins Publishing! And finally. Gretchen, a brilliant artist whose life was cut short Your art will live on
It is my sincere wish that you feel the love and blessings that created this project from all those who touched It on its way to you
