is a healer who moves into an altered state of consciousness
to access a hidden reality
in the spirit world
for purposes of bringing back healing, power, and information.
The word "Shaman"
means "one who sees in the dark"
(the hidden realities
), and widely refers to those who are medicine women/men, healers, and seers. Shamans believe that all problems -- physical, emotional or mental -- have their root cause in a spiritual imbalance.
A Shaman works to restore balance and wholeness
by addressing the root cause of the problem. Many methods are used in shamanic healing
. They use the Chakana
for this purpose, including soul retrieval, retrieval of a spiritual ally, removal of unwanted energies, soul remembering, ancestral work and hands on healing
. The Back:
The back design
of the Shaman Playing Cards
is represented by the Chakana ancient symbol
surrounded by the four elements, fire, water, earth and air,
the Gods of the Sun "Inti", the Mother Earth "Pachamama" and the Moon "Killa". There are two powerful words in "Quechua" (the people's languages) -- "Kay Pacha," the terrenal world of here and now, and "Hanan Pacha," the celestial world where the Gods live. In the center is the Shaman's inner eye, seeking
all the wisdom of the past, present and future
using the mystic power of the Andean Cross
, "The Chakana." Custom Pips:

the traditional classic design
with a minimal change
representing the power of the 4 elements of creation
-- the Fire Element
represented by the Hearts, the Water Element
represented by the Spades, the Air Element
represented by the Diamonds, and the Earth Element
represented by the Clubs. All the element symbols are slightly transparent.Custom Court Cards:The Court Cards

uses a lot of bright and primary colors, but for this luxury touch
of the cards we chose only 3 colors: the black

. It also represents high energy vibrations and emanations
, sometimes called the stars of the soul
