Make a SoulCollage® Card
Originated by Seena Frost, SoulCollage® is a process for accessing your intuition and creating collage cards with deep personal meaning that will give you unique insights into your life.
This is a multi-levelled, creative process which anyone can do. All you need is a pair of scissors, blank cards (7"x5"), glue stick and images you can cut out from magazines and greeting cards etc. You can do this work individually, but it is more powerful to have other people with whom to share the process.
"SoulCollage® is a tangible way to know yourself in your diversity and depth, and also to show yourself to others. In like-spirited groups, you can share cards and work with them in many sacred ways. You can consult them intuitively and discover wisdom within yourself which will amaze you. Besides all this, creating them is just plain fun! "

Create a SoulCollage® Card and do a Reading.
1. You will need scissors, glue stick and pen. Print out the SoulCollage® Frame from the link above and cut a piece of cardboard to 8 x 5 inches.
2. Choose 1 or 2 images intuitively for your background. Using the frame, find what part of the image(s) feel right for your background. Glue your images to the card provided.
3. Choose another few images. Cut them out, tear them or use them whole. Arrange them on your background with the help of the frame. Continue until your card feels right. This might be up to 10 images or as few as 2! Mark your arranged images with a pencil if you like, then trim and glue the image(s) onto your background starting with underneath images first. However it turns out is fine… There are no mistakes in SoulCollage® Cards!!
4. Read from your Card (I Am One Who…) The exciting part is now hearing what your card has to say.
"An essential part of the SoulCollage® process is the joy of tapping into one’s intuition to answer current life questions. The visual images that have mysteriously found us, the ones we have glued onto cards and named as our guides, allies, and challengers, will now help us access deep knowings in ourselves." - Seena Frost
Look at one of the images on your card and reflect on it. Is it a person? A child? An animal? Maybe a tree? Or a bridge or building? Put yourself inside this image and feel its energy. Imagine that this image has a voice. Start with the words “I Am One Who …” and keep speaking (or writing) as if you were the image. What are you? What are your strengths? Where are you? How would you describe yourself as that image? How do you interact with the other images on your card?
Example: if you have an image of a dog it might say, “I am one who is waiting for my person” OR “I am one who loves to play” OR “I am one who is sad when I’m left behind”.
You can then repeat the same process for another of your images on the same card. It may seem strange to speak this way at first! Trust in the process, and give it a try… you may be surprised at the wisdom you uncover!
Continue until it feels finished and all parts of the card that want to “speak” have spoken.
Your card can then give you a message.
Start with the words “My message for you today is…” and see what your card has to say.
Example: Using the above image of a dog, your card might say “My message for you today is if you are on your own, do things that make you happy. Don’t get stuck feeling sorry for yourself"
This method of reading SoulCollage® Cards is not the same as analysing or interpreting the image, it is an intuitive way of listening to the self. It can give life and surprising consciousness to what looks like just a photo and through those images we can come to know ourselves better.
Trust the process and know that with practice it will become easier.
