Awaken cards are a culmination of over twenty years of experience working as a psychotherapist relieving peoples suffering and a lifetime as a “spiritual seeker”. These “divination” cards have the potential to cut through our often confused thinking process and take us immediately to the heart of the situation, cutting through beliefs and human conditioning, they are a powerful tool to self realization and reducing human suffering. The conception of these cards and indeed our website (knowing consciousness.com) came about after a fortuitous encounter at a spiritual retreat between Peter and Maria back in 2016 where they realized the need to put their understandings out there in these turbulent times and take ACTION.
The first fruits of this action appeared in a weeks residential retreat on the beautiful island of Corfu in Greece back in August of 2018 where daily sessions in yoga, meditation and spiritual enquiry were offered together with communal cooking and living. Following its success, other work started to develop. They looked at the key learnings from the retreat and what followed was a simple model which captured these learnings, this now forms the basis of all the work they do together, and it’s referred to as ’HOW’ (Honesty, Openness & Willingness).
By being HONEST with yourself and others, you can meet yourself in truth. By being OPEN to new possibilities and a different way of looking at life it can be more fully embraced. And being WILLING to engage and participate in all that is arising in the moment, you can observe and experience an alternative perspective to the meaning of life.
Peter and Maria created the The Awaken Cards because they want to share these learnings with as many beings as possible. They both experienced a deep sense of willingness and a natural progression following on from the work they have been doing together. It is their intention that these Oracle cards will guide and support you. Each of the cards have been identified as key messages of wisdom through which collective consciousness expresses itself. From universal energy and love, with deepest sincerity, the divine will find a way to reach you and offer guidance.
