What is SoulCollage®
SoulCollage® is an intuitive form of collage that everyone can use to access their inner wisdom and strength. Learning how to make a SoulCollage® card takes only minutes, but the insight that comes from working with a card can last a lifetime.
Seena Frost, the creator of SoulCollage®, describes SoulCollage® as:
“…a creative and satisfying collage process.
You make your own deck of cards – each collage card
representing one aspect of your personality or Soul.
Use the collage cards intuitively to answer life’s questions
and participate in self-discovery.
Joyfully deepen your understanding of the relationships
between your personality parts, you and your family/community/world,
and you and your dreams, symbols, and Spirit.”
Working with collage images quickly accesses deeply held beliefs that may be hard to express with words alone. Simply let the images speak to you. Some will attract you and some will repel you. Both reactions are equally important and should be honored.
The images that attract us are likely to symbolize parts of us that we are most comfortable with and share with the world around us. The images that repel us may represent our shadow self and be the parts that we feel uncomfortable with and try to deny.
