"The first thing I can say about these cards and the accompanying book is that they are definitely hardcore metaphysics. There are tie-ins with chakras, ley lines, Lemuria, oversouls, crystals, crystal temples, karma, and more. If it is in metaphysics, it is probably here too. The cards are beautiful. The story of how they came about is interesting and full of mystical discovery. The cards can be used in several different ways to “attune” or to answer questions and receive guidance."

To capture the vibrant light and colour within crystals is notoriously difficult to achieve in graphic form. So much of their beauty is only revealed by the careful scrutiny of the changing play of light and form as they are turned in the hand. Because each stone has unique features the issue then is how to capture the archetypal qualities of each mineral in essence.
Mike Eastwood's designs start from photographic images but each is turned into a kaleidoscopic mandala. In this way he abstracts the particular and emphasis’s in subtle, subliminal ways the structure and geometry unique to each crystal.
The concentric mandala form and the subtlety of vibrant colours embedded in earthy tones make these cards excellent for contemplation. Relaxed gazing brings out the multiple layers of patterns and there are plenty of opportunities to glimpse ephemeral images and faces within the reflecting geometries with which to feed the imagination and intuition.
Mike Eastwood's aim is to present the energy, or oversoul, behind the physical reality of the crystals he has chosen to work with and his cards allow the viewer to engage in a wholly personal and potentially revelatory way with the mineral kingdom in an innovative and constructive way.
The cards and book set are packaged in a sturdy box with a magnetic clip for easy access, to keep both your cards and book in pristine condition. There are 44 cards in the set, each with a different complex and exquisitely beautiful mandala that draws you in to its sublime images of actual crystals photographed/edited to encapsulate their “overlighting” essence, or oversoul essence.
I would recommend this blessed find to lightworkers and seekers everywhere. This one has completely made it into my spiritual toolbox no problems at all.
Designed for meditation and contemplation, this set of beautiful cards and accompanying book explore in great depth the spiritual and metaphysical qualities of crystals and how to communicate with the part of the collective consciousness that the crystals represent. Earthstar Magazine
