Bless the Horses is a limited edition art deck. A lifetime passion project and also a way of expressing my gratitude to horses as a species.
It has taken years to pull all the layers and details of this deck together with patience and the help of the earthy blessings of the horses themselves.
The messages, art images and symbols are all intentional and designed to assist in connecting the reader to the essence of the spirit of the horse, opening avenues for interspecies communication and the capacity to listen and heal what is within our souls. Whether you are a seasoned horse person or simply have long admired horses from a distance, the messages in this deck are for all humans here, right now.
Most of the messages in this deck were gathered during body/ energy work sessions with individual domesticated horses in barn, home, field settings who had lifelong connection to humans. A collection of their shared wisdom is the inspiration for this project.
Below is one sample message;
“We are willing to share our all encompassing hearts with you.
We are bigger, faster and stronger. We have much to offer humans.
For us what is important is that the information received be put into action, not left to stagnate and rot.
Keep knowledge in motion, fostering change.
If you enter into this arrangement with us, we ask that you agree to do your best to hold this information responsibly.
(We understand you are human)
You may come to us, offer all you have and receive our humble wisdom for humans to follow.
(If you choose)
Now we are both present to offer this transmission.
It is time to feel the level of equine vibration that is available, always.”
Spirit Horse Council
The images were created and printed using the connection that horses have to the earth, seasons and elements. The 64-card deck is divided into six symboled suits. Each card is numbered within a symbol for the suit, which corresponds to the messages in the guidebook. Illuminating the nonverbal aspect of communicating with others, the deck is designed for readers to feel or intuit into the image before reading the messages, so there are no words on the cards.
The suits are:;
Winter - The Walk
Spring - The Canter
Summer - The Gallop
Fall - The Trot.
The “Horse messenger”
The only horizontally oriented suit in the deck is the“The Spirit Horse Council.”
There are many ways to work with this deck:
Open the guidebook at any page and receive a message.
Ask the deck a question. Then pull a card.
Work with the seasonal suit cards at that time of year.
Sit with a horse and pull a card.
Be creative and adventurous with the multiple card choices and messages.
However you choose to work with this deck, I pray it gives you the blessings horses have given me.
