The messages themselves are as expected- sometimes touching, sometimes trite. But there are plenty of cards to choose from, so you should be able to find some that speak to you.
If you buy, you will read messages like:
Take the leap; your courage will see you through. [...]

My mom and I still are enjoying the card deck.My mom takes time to pick a card from the card deck here and there and puts it out in her room to look at for the day,as for me I use it as a regular card deck here and there.Recently I came across the card deck again for only a dollar at a Thrift Shop and bought it even though it seems that there is a card missing.Cheryl mentions on a card to let people pick a card from the card deck and keep it,put it in a bowel and pick a card,or include it in a greeting card to someone.And I decided to do just that.The card pictures aren't just beautiful but have one word on the cards and simply sayings on the back.A great card deck to use to put out for the day like my mom does.
I pull a card as that last task in the evening with the focus and intention of asking "what will my self-care focus be for the next day" - I can journal the topic and the message, how it feels, and how I choose to implement it into the next day.
For instance, "Playfulness" depicts a child sleeping and there is a lot of purple coloring on the picture representing this ideal. How do you learn about playfulness? - how can you incorporate more into your day? - why might you want to do so? As the card suggests, you can learn by watching or playing with a child about the uninhibited fun and laughter. Whether you play a game of tag or play on the jungle gym or fly a kite all lighten your attitude and bring an inner joy and exuberance to your day. They can teach us literally how to be a kid again and provide us with a vehicle to allow the inner light to shine through us.
How will you choose to use them?
For example: I asked the cards if I will ever find out the truth about what happened with [_____________] and then I chose a card and the card I chose said, "Take comfort in not having all the answers."
See what I mean?
to use the Grace Cards electronically. I have found Amazon a great way to get extra sets for my purposes and to get them at discounted prices. I am adding the sets of Self-Care Cards to my "Word Gift" basket to share with clients. My only sadness in the purchase of a gently used set was that the seller had received them as a gift from her mother (as noted by the handwritten inscription on the inside cover of the box). She parted with a great gift.Self Care Cards (Large Card Decks)
