I love affirmations and use “oracle” decks to provide a positive boost in the morning or whenever I need a lift.  It’s my way of telling the Universe I’m open to listening to their message:  “Have at it!”  “I’m listening!”  “Tell me more!”  I hope you enjoy as I introduce some of my favorite cards and quotes in my newsletters!  These make great gifts for any occasion as well as can be used as inspirational hand-outs in class if you are a yoga instructor.

The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

This is one of the recommended books from my first 200-hour yoga training through YogaFit®.  I loved it so much, I bought the deck of cards.  Since this month’s focus is on being present in the moment, what better deck than “The Power of Now” to enable us to do that?

Card #1: Backside says “The joy of being” (not shown).  Front side reads:  When the compulsive striving away from the now ceases, the joy of Being flows into everything you do.  The moment your attention turns to the Now, you feel a presence, a stillness, a peace.

Card #2: Backside says “Portals to the now” (not shown).  Front side reads:  Keep some of your attention within. Don’t let it all flow out.  Feel your whole body from within, as a single field of energy.  It is almost as if you were listening or reading with your whole body.  Let this be your practice in the days and weeks to come.

Description: For admirers of the bestselling The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle’s wisdom now comes in a highly accessible form — an elegant boxed set of color cards. Each inspirational card expresses a quotation from the book on one side and art on the other — to aid busy people with their daily meditations. Topics include discovering portals of the now, rising above thought, and transforming suffering into peace.

About the author: Eckhart is a spiritual teacher and author who was born in Germany and educated at the Universities of London and Cambridge. At the age of 29, a profound inner transformation radically changed the course of his life. The next few years were devoted to understanding, integrating and deepening that transformation, which marked the beginning of an intense inward journey. Later, he began to work in London with individuals and small groups as a counselor and spiritual teacher. Since 1995 he has lived in Vancouver, Canada. Eckhart Tolle is the author of the #1 New York Times bestsellers The Power of Now (translated into 33 languages) and the highly acclaimed follow-up A New Earth, which are widely regarded as two of the most influential spiritual books of our time.

In my first newsletter, I highlighted one of my favorite decks—a wonderfully whimsical, inspiring, thought-provoking Enrichuals© deck, created by local author, artist and creativity coach, Suzanne Vadnais Monson.  Refer to the November newsletter archive for a sample card.  Suzanne has graciously agreed to let me make them available on Better Day Yoga’s product page online!  https://betterdayyoga.com/products.htm
