Wisdom Seekers: The Rise of the New Spirituality explores the origins and precursors of the New Age movement, its consolidation within the American counterculture of the late 1960s, and its development into an international spiritual perspective in contemporary Western society. The book considers the influence on the New Age of metaphysicians like Emanuel Swedenborg, Mesmer, Madame Blavatsky and Gurdjieff; pioneering thinkers like Freud, Jung and William James; and the contribution to New Age thought of Indian spiritual traditions and transpersonal psychology. Wisdom Seekers also describes the way in which the New Age paradigm has absorbed the most recent discoveries of quantum physics and consciousness research, and it explores the New Age focus on personal spiritual experience rather than formal religious doctrines.

Modern Tarot doesn’t require you to believe in the supernatural or narrowly focus on the tarot as a divination tool.
Author: Michelle Tea
The beloved literary iconoclast delivers a fresh twenty-first century primer on tarot that can be used with any deck. While tarot has gone mainstream with a diverse range of tarot decks widely available, there has been no equally mainstream guide to the tarot—one that can be applied to any deck—until now. Infused with beloved iconoclastic author Michelle Tea’s unique insight, inviting pop sensibility, and wicked humor, Modern Tarot is a fascinating journey through the cards that teaches how to use this tradition to connect with our higher selves. Whether you’re a committed seeker or a digital-age skeptic—or perhaps a little of both—Tea’s essential guide opens the power of tarot to you. Modern Tarot doesn’t require you to believe in the supernatural or narrowly focus on the tarot as a divination tool. Tea instead provides incisive descriptions of each of the 78 cards in the tarot system—each illustrated in the charmingly offbeat style of cartoonist Amanda Verwey—and introduces specially designed card-based rituals that can be used with any deck to guide you on a path toward radical growth and self-improvement. Tea reveals how tarot offers moments of deep, transformative connection—an affirming, spiritual experience that is gentle, individual, and aspirational. Grounded in Tea’s twenty-five years of tarot wisdom and her abiding love of the cards, and featuring 78 black and white illustrations throughout, Modern Tarot is the ultimate introduction to the tradition of the tarot for millennial readers.

What? A Clinical Psychologist Espousing Tarot Cards? Dr. Arthur Rosengarten, in Tarot and Psychology: Spectrums of Possibility, does just that. He explains Tarot to those who may want to learn to use it properly for the greatest good-individuals who desire greater spirituality in their lives, including the benefits of psychological insight and depth, without the baggage of affiliation that invariably accompanies any single set of beliefs. Tarot, they will soon find, operates on many levels of profound meaning from a purely non-affiliated platform in the truest sense. Tarot makes accessible to awareness a full spectrum of psychological and spiritual possibility with little preference for its user's qualifications or beliefs. Rather magically, one might say, Tarot captures the heartbeat of experience. This fact alone should make the deck of human possibility immediately relevant to helping professionals who deal with the heartbeats of experience daily. The use of Tarot as an oracle for creating awareness and gaining insight into particular symptoms, problems or questions-i.e. Tarot divination-is often mentioned as an afterthought, alongside other meditational exercises and alternative spread configurations. Yet today, the vast majority of individuals who have discovered the wonders and mysteries of Tarot have done so through experiences of divination. Card reading, without a doubt, is Tarot's most beguiling and potentially beneficial enterprise. Why dance around the magic? For Tarot to continue to evolve into the 21st century (and beyond) it must have a stronger application emphasis, that is, it must be relevant, accessible, and meaningful to the changing contours of people's lives. It must resonate with all who seek greater meaning, creativity, and awareness, not simply with small segments of the waning New Age. Tarot and Psychology provides an innovative new approach for understanding the psychological and spiritual possibilities of human experience.

This is commonly noticed in many who have such readings done & is certainly very dangerous.On the other hand, deck of Soul Urjaa wisdom messages has very simple messages. These are clear messages written in simple words.
Author: Rekhaa Kale
There are many types of cards that people use to predict about future or to solve problems. Tarot cards, Angel cards, Oracle cards are some of the most popular among them. But none of these cards give a clear message in categorical words to seeker. Then whatever the reader says is taken as ultimate interpretation. This motivates different card readers interpret the same cards differently. Due to all this, seekers asking for readings get confused and then many start disbelieving them. This is why these wisdom message cards are created as per the guidance and orders of Divine masters' received during meditation.It is observed that there are 9 main areas where people need guidance. These are, How to be What to refrain fromWhom and how to loveWhat to avoidWhom to respectWhat and how to talkWhom to thankWhom to trustWhat aspect of us we must work onandWhich general rules should we followSo; in order to cover all these aspects of life and to give messages regarding each of these aspects, our deck of cards has 9 basic series with 15 messages in each of these series. These series are named as; Be, Don't, Love, Never, Respect, Talk, Thank, Trust and Work on series. In addition to these, we have some messages that cannot be included in any such series, so, we have got one more additional series with additional set of messages that are needed to lead a good life. We call it as Divine Gems. The speciality of these cards is that they give messages about what aspect we need to change in our being to get power to handle the situation under consideration. When we follow that guidance, we get a way to reach the solution easily.These cards never tell future. They just tell us what line of action we must take in given situation. This is because we all are the actual creators of our own future. This is because, what we face may be decided by the destiny, but how we face it and what we gain out of it, is always and necessarily decided by us. So, simply trying to look for future is futile. But getting a guideline about how to handle the upcoming future is of immense help. So, finding out what to do or how to handle any event effectively is needed. In this card deck, we also find cards that give tips to the reader. These are the special cards that are to be used by the readers to get necessary tips for reading. We all have already seen earlier that in the market there are many popular card types known to give predictions about future, but only this deck type has the cards that guide the reader. Also, other card types have different images. These images always need further interpretation by reader of these cards; that seeker trusts blindly. In such a situation, if the reader has a habit of scaring the seekers in order to extract some benefits, the seekers can easily get influenced. Also, if the reader has a negative mindset and has a habit to see only negative things out of everything, seekers can get pessimistic about their future after reading cards and have some negative thoughts in mind that may damage. This is commonly noticed in many who have such readings done & is certainly very dangerous.On the other hand, deck of Soul Urjaa wisdom messages has very simple messages. These are clear messages written in simple words. Even if no one interprets them further, still, most of the times, seeker himself can interpret the message more clearly. This means, positive or negative attitude of reader cannot influence the mind of the seeker when these cards are used.
Years of Wisdom draws of the work of Carl Jung to reveal how the process of greater self-awareness and spiritual consciousness unfolds.
Author: Jenny Higgins
Years of Wisdom is an essential read for Tarot enthusiasts, spiritual seekers and those who want to deepen their self-awareness and live a more fulfilling life. The book grounds the 22 archetypal lessons of the Tarot's major arcana in the transformational experiences of women's lives. Inspirational, intimate real-life stories from 50 women demonstrate how each archetype can encourage growth, self-discovery and empowerment. The stories were collected for a PhD on women, ageing and the transformation of self and the book honours the wisdom of older women. The Tarot's ancient wisdom, with its mythological images, mystical references and esoteric symbols, offers a path to higher consciousness that has been travelled b y those seeking greater spiritual awareness for hundreds of years; it is the hero's journey, the subject of myths in many cultures. The Tarot as a developmental path offers more than conventional theories of human development, which turn out well-adjusted, productive citizens. Most of us seek more than this; we want to tap our full potential, expand our consciousness beyond the limitations of materialistic social values and have a deeper spiritual experience of being alive. Years of Wisdom draws of the work of Carl Jung to reveal how the process of greater self-awareness and spiritual consciousness unfolds.
