“I love mixing intuition with *fun* and Guiding Signs 101 guidance cards do just that.
These intuitively based cards are so positive, sweet and uplifting that you would have fun doing these with your children, your spouse, on your own… even with your pet! The real gem of these cards is in the included Guiding Signs 101 Guidebook, which is where you look up the deeper meaning behind the card that you (or your child, or your spouse, or your pet…) has selected.
I was so impressed with how thoughtful and well written the card suggestions are… you can go as light or as deeply as you’d like to go with it.
If you want to leave room for your own intuitive interpretation, you can just read the little poem that accompanies each card to get a general feeling for what the card represents, then open to your own intuitions as you work it into your own personal context. For those that want a bit more directions, there is a “Deeper Meaning” section that gives you a full passage about each card, and what I love about them is that they are all extremely positive and full of gentle suggestions and analogies to help you really get to the deeper meaning in the card. Lastly, there is also a small list of question prompts that you can ask yourself about the card you have drawn, to give you some direction to the day or a thought point for reflection in your meditative times.
The quality of this card deck surpasses most that I’ve seen. The cards and large and simple, with bright graphics that immediately make me think this would be a super fun, powerful tool to share with children… so I highly recommend all the parents out there considering this as a wonderful parenting tool to help teach your little ones about intuition and how to have FUN and PLAY with how you would like to intend and create your day, or for problem solving, or for any way you can think of! I love how the entire feel of the deck is positive and joyful… nothing in here that is negative or heavy in any way.” Dr. Laura Koniver, MD
“Everyone was blown away by Guiding Signs 101. The clarity of the cards was quite startling. What I like about Guiding Signs 101 is the simplicity of the message on the card, which really leaves no room for over-interpretation or for moving in the wrong direction. So, students don’t get stuck ruminating, but quickly learn to contact their intuitive sense. The book gives the depth necessary if there is any doubt about the meaning of the card itself. For the beginner who is just starting to explore intuition, the deck makes a refreshing change from the traditional Tarot, which requires more knowledge than I think should be necessary to connect with one’s inner knowing. For the experienced intuitive, Guiding Signs 101 is straightforward in providing clear feedback. Since my style of teaching involves connecting students with their own intuition by using tools and techniques, rather than having them get hung up on arcane meanings of cards, I find Guiding Signs 101 to be the ideal teaching tool, and a welcome companion for anyone who wants to connect quickly and effectively with their intuition.” Bonita Kay Summers, Intuitive Counselor.
“Congratulations on creating such an inspiring and helpful deck, that is both colorful and fun! What a wonderful way to share indigenous wisdom and have it accessible, enjoyable and practical for any age. Thank you for honoring the work you did in the Four-Fold Way and for acknowledging my work in such a good way. I so admire what you have done and send you many blessing wishes that your work flourish and grow!” – Angeles Arrien, PhD, Cultural Anthropologist, Author and International Speaker and Teacher
Guiding Signs is a wonderful tool to understanding self, family, friends and even new acquaintances. Road signs are a part of everyone’s experiences; symbols speak to us on another layer. Here’s how it works: Think of a question about your life, select a card, and share how you think it relates to the answer. Take it another step by exploring the guidebook’s interpretation or questions for the sign. Every time I share the cards, our conversation is so much richer as hearts and minds are opened.

What a breath of fresh air! “Guiding Signs 101” is such a simple way to connect with your deep intuition, and to find your way forward in this crazy world we are all living in right now. There is no better way to start, then by using these beautiful “Guiding Signs” cards. They are also a perfect way to connect with your children, your friends, your spouse — anyone who is also looking for a bit of guidance and insight in these rapidly changing times. Bravo! Leslie Carpenter
Not only are these cards a great way to put you in touch with your intuition, they are also a great way to simply add a little magic to your day!
The playful and whimsical design of these cards, countered by the deep and insightful wisdom of the corresponding passages in the book are a delight to experience. There are times in life when we begin to get out of touch or overwhelmed with the seeming monotony of daily tasks – no matter how “spiritually realized” we are – we all have those moments. Using these cards on a daily basis or just on an occasional basis immediately re-infuses your day with a sense of wonder, and a delicious child-like curiosity as you watch those magical synchronicity’s unfold!
The accuracy and the profound insights that have come from the cards is astounding! What I love about them is that you can take it as deep as you want to go – or you can keep it light and playful, it’s totally up to you how you want to play with them. They can really provide clarity when you need it, or when there is just too much going on in your noggin’ to sort it all out. And I love the option for “yes” or “no” questions as well.
Everyone understands road signs, there’s no esoteric illusory place you have to delve into, we give ourselves enough complication in life already! So these are a great opportunity to bring some simple and direct truth to your experience – no “reading between the lines” required. But if you DO choose to read between the lines, meditate or journal on deeper meanings, it can be that much more rewarding.
A lot of card decks can take you deeper, but not a lot of them can make you cry and laugh out loud in the same sitting!
Just think of it as a little bit of “sand box” time before work – a little play goes a long way! Sunni Chapman
“Kathleen- I just got done reading about how you and Erin created your Guiding Signs cards. I am so inspired and heartened. Your process is so exactly how I wish to collaborate with others. It made me smile just to imagine it.I am longing more than ever to connect with other women who want to work in this way. I especially love how joyful, supportive, honest, and deeply listening for what is in the flow this process is. We all are truly incredible co-creators. Thank you for birthing the cards in this way and for sharing your process. I am excited to take this new collaborative, heart-listening way into every new relationship and creation.” Ellen, Sacramento, CA.
“During the day my wife who has mild cognitive impairment (memory) will take a card and use it for a conversational starter and thoughtful motivator. Whenever one of our grown children and grandchildren are visiting or we visit them we’ll use a card to stimulate their thinking and to increase our thoughtfulness. These cards are another example of your your beautiful heart.” Dr. Rose. Listen to interview: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/icdrrose
“Working on the Guiding Sign cards brought both joy and thoughtfulness into my life. Editing this project felt less like a “job” and more like a special dessert to enjoy as a break from my regular work. Each of the Guiding Sign cards allowed me to reflect on the choices I’ve made in my own life. I feel grateful to have had the opportunity to participate in this wonderful project.” – Kirsten Painter, Writer and Freelance Editor
“Guiding sign cards are very clear and inspiring with their intuitive messages and guidance. I would suggest this deck to anyone looking for a fun and playful way to work with your intuition.” – Donna Fisher-Jackson, M.A., CHT, Author of: The Healing Path of the Romantic: Type Four of the Enneagram Personality Type System
“While we all want signs to guide our decisions, often the messages we receive are obscure and cryptic. Not so with Guiding Signs. Drawing on signals we easily understand, these cards provide clear and immediate guidance with explanations that take us into the mysteries that can lead us to a deeper understanding of our lives and our choices. I predict you’ll be using these at least daily!” – Gail Larsen, founder of Real Speaking, author, Transformational Speaking: If You Want to Change the World, Tell a Better Story
“Guiding Signs 101 are a playful easy way to tune into our innate guidance. They are beautiful and simple to understand. Thank you, Kathleen.” – Shivani Grail
“Guiding Signs 101 is a rare find, one whose many intents became my own very personal realizations. I understand and appreciate the English language perhaps a bit too seriously — that said, even in my wildest dreams, I can’t imagine being able to touch the wisdom that’s so clearly behind the writing in your book. Somewhere I suspect Kahlil Gibran is smiling.” – Dave Young

“One of the things you said to me, Kathleen, was, ‘Just ask any question that’s on your mind.’ Do I continue doing this work? What do I have to share? Do I still have more things to share? And then I pick up this card that says, ‘Share the Road’ (it gives me goose bumps) and then immediately I got it. Of course, I’m still supposed to share what I’ve learned and what I’ve gained in my life. – Patt Lind-Kyle MA, PHD: Author, Therapist, and Speaker: Lind and Kyle Consultants, Latest book: Heal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain (including CD with Theta Mediation)

“When I work with the Guiding Signs cards, I’m always impressed by how intuitive the cards are. Today, I asked a question about my project – a global, grass-roots campaign to bring about the universal adoption of Rights of Nature. My question was, ‘What message do you have for me?’ The card I drew was, ‘Crossing.’ It’s so perfect. The answer the cards gave me was to look at the context of the crossing we are making as a planet and me personally.” – Robin Milam: Social Entrepreneur, Web Developer, Rights of Mother Earth Campaign: www.RightsofMotherEarth.com
