Dr. Wayne Dyer-- internationally renowned psychotherapist, author, and teacher--is affectionately known as "the father of motivation" by his many fans. Every book that I've read by Dr. Dyer has been a gift of encouragement, common sense, and clarity--and his 50 card deck Inner Peace Cards is no exception. As with most Hay House motivational decks, Inner Peace Cards are a high-gloss kaleidoscope of color and inspiration, measuring 4.12 x 4.13 inches. They come in a convenient flip-top box that is covered in illustrations...both inside and out.
Dyer's purpose for these cards is to help you feel the love of God deep within you on a daily basis as you're guided to drawn upon the inner peace that lies within.
I was having a particularly stressful day yesterday, and as I opened the box, there was a bright golden card that said: "Once you have learned how to enter your inner kingdom, you have a special retreat within that is always available to you." I immediately felt a sense of peace. Sometimes, when the outside world seems to be crowding in, it only takes a small reminder that we have the kingdom of God within...and it can be accessed at any time.
Each card is not only lavishly illustrated in every color imaginable, but also bears an inspirational phrase on both sides. Some of my favorites include:
If you meet someone whose soul is not aligned with yours, send them love and move along. (I align myself with people who support my growth.)
If you are suffering in your life right now, I can guarantee that this condition is tied up with some kind of attachment to how things should be going. (I release the need to determine how things "should" be.)
One of the highest places you can get to is to be independent of the good opinions of others. (What other people think of me is none of my business.)
You can't go around being what everyone wants you to be, living your life through other people's rules, and expect to be happy and have inner peace. (I live my life in my own way.)
No one can create negativity or stress within you. Only you can do that by virtue of how you process your world. (I create the world that I live in.)
I fill myself with love, and I send that love out into the world. How others treat me is their path; how I react is mine. (Love is my gift to the world.)
As you can probably tell, these cards not only inspire, but also challenge us to examine our perspectives and the choices we are making. Leading us into a deeper, more mindful way of living, Inner Peace Cards are a wonderful way to re-connect with the Divine, our higher wisdom, and others.
