SoulCollage® is an intuitive artistic process that anyone can do. Even people who are usually limited to stick figures (like me!) can create SoulCollage® cards. The process was developed by Seena Frost, who created it out of a desire to combine art, therapy, and spirituality.
SoulCollage® cards are reflections of our inner selves–the voices of our inner committee, the people who have influenced us directly and indirectly, our animal chakra companions, and the archetypes that have meanings for us. It may be useful to think of them as similar to a tarot deck, but there are significant differences. The first and foremost is that you make your own cards from your own intuition and creativity, so you are the expert on what your cards say. We use images, which share a powerful connection with the subconscious mind, to access the inner wisdom we might not otherwise be able to speak to. For that reason, our own personal SoulCollage® decks are unique and extremely powerful.
A SoulCollage® deck can contain any number of cards, from two to 200 or more, and can have as many suits as you like–or none, if you prefer. All you need is glue, scissors, pre-cut mat boards, and images, which can come from magazines or your own personal collection. The rest is up to you and your intuition, with the help of a licensed SoulCollage® facilitator. Making and sharing our cards is a lot of fun, but the real meaning comes when we interpret those cards and hear what our inner wisdom wants to tell us.
For a description of how to make and read a card, see my Introduction to SoulCollage® post. You can watch Seena Frost demonstrate how to make a SoulCollage® card in the video below.
SoulCollage® cards are made either from one’s own art or from images found in materials which have been bought by or given to the SoulCollage card maker.
These collaged cards are used only for the cardmaker’s own inner exploration. SoulCollage cards are not sold, traded, bartered, or copied (except as a back-up for the cardmakers own use) as is stated in the Principles of SoulCollage®. Where SoulCollage cards are available to be seen by others, it is for the purposes either of demonstrating the SoulCollage process or of sharing the cardmakers’ inner process in the context of community. SoulCollage® is grateful to the artists and photographers who make this deep awakening process possible and in all ways SoulCollage® seeks to be respectful of their rights.
