I WisePlay, Our Philosophy
“All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays
As you Like it, Shakespeare
The world is a vast and wondrous stage indeed and you are not only the
player but the Writer, Director, and Producer as well. Are you playing
the part that you want to play? Are you satisfied with how it is
unfolding? It isn't called a play for nothing, so are you having fun?
The WisePlay deck is meant to help you to bridge your inner world and
your external world, seeing the intimate connection between the two. The
cards in the deck are designed to guide you towards loving and embracing
the whole of you with wisdom so that you can become fully integrated and
harmonious with all parts of you, rather than constricted, and divided.
Together we (Michele and Mimi) bring diverse experience with the use of
oracle decks, coaching, and the healing arts. We wanted to create a deck
that is useful for therapeutic reasons and is a tool of transcendence
for whatever issues you are seeking guidance about. The cards are
designed to help you to start a dialogue with yourself. In pointing the
way of your attention and awareness, you can come to greater clarity and
shift yourself into joyful expansion in ALL that your life encompasses.
Joy requires you to be all-inclusive. Embrace everything (after you are
done sticking your tongue out at it) and have some fun for heaven's
sake! You are on a tremendous adventure.
We designed the deck to reflect the most common hurdles and issues that
we have witnessed our clients struggling with, as well as emphasize the
positive qualities that they may want to expand upon. Ultimately, the
WisePlay deck will help you to manifest more of what you are longing for
in your life. We used a fresh, fun approach to stimulate awareness and
to break through the repetitive issues that tend to hold us all back.
What we have assembled is a self-coaching deck that is comprehensive and
holistically oriented––we used ourselves as guinea pigs! Our work
began in 2014 and we are excited to say that these cards have changed
our perspective, and our lives, in positive ways. When you change your
perspective, this changes the entire play!
We have all experienced those times where things don’t seem to be
“clicking” for usin one way or another. Maybe we feel stuck,
confused, or overwhelmed by a particular situation in our lives. The
size or intensity of the circumstances can range from a very small daily
uncertainty to something that may seem insurmountable.At times, we may
just be at a loss, feeling that we aren’t quite in alignment with what
we want for ourselves and questioning what to do next? We begin to
analyze and then OVER-analyze, creating doubt that any kind of change
will ever take place. This frustration is usually brought on by a bump
with a repeating behavioral pattern. Sometimes we may be completely
aware of this particular pattern but feel helpless to exact real change
within the current situation. Other times, we may not even realize that
a negative pattern exists until we begin to take a real honest look at
ourselves through a lens of gentle compassionate exploration.
The truth is we already have all our own answers needed to do all of the
things we desire and feel the things we truly wish to feel! As human
beings, we tend to get in our own way with old stories, patterns,
habits, and so on. These cards will help you access that non-judgmental,
all loving and kind part of yourself that just wants you to relax,
breathe and take a few moments every day to become aware of what your
current focus is and to then be able to choose to re-focus on what makes
you feel the best. It allows you to sway with the flow of your life, at
your speed, at your willingness, with receptivity to see the wholeness
of the big picture and to focus on what is needed when necessary.
Why? Because when you are able to step back in a more calm, relaxed, and
trusting state of mind, you are able to make more clear choices that are
in alignment with what you truly desire. You really begin to understand
the concept that all of your power exists in the present moment. This
allows for you to CHOOSE what you would like to feel and experience,
realizing the endless possibilities that are available to you at any
given moment.In essence, by using the cards, it’s as if someone
cleaned your windows and suddenlyyou can immediately see the beautiful
flowers directly in front of you in great detail while still being able
to step back from the window a bit to have the whole view of the entire
garden and beyond. You begin to see that there is no separation, it all
exists together and you have choices! What do you want to look at today
and how would you like to feel? Would you want to plant something new
outside your window, trim the bushes, add a birdhouse, a wind chime or
is today just the way you would like it? You get the picture!
We all have this tremendous knowing being inside of us that most of us
are aware of, but our beliefs and what we’re taught about the world
and how it works, our overwhelming daily lives and the pull of our
senses, distracts us from listening to or hearing our highest, most wise
self. This neutral, wise individual really knows what makes you happiest
and is ready and willing to help you to get there. It is truly simple.
Most of us don't believe that for a second, though. Trust us! This is a
inner knowing you is important to pay attention to! The cards will help
to connect you to this voice. It is the You without all the limitations
and judgments, the vast You that is bigger and wiser than you can
imagine and hooked up with the Universe. As you are using the cards, pay
attention to that, ”Of course I know this!” feeling. You do know
this stuff, yet often we do not listen. This knowing is quiet and it is
centered. It quietly knows the whole picture. Really listen to this big
You self...sometimes what it knows might be a little scary and ask a
little more of you, but it will get you to where you want to go. As a
result, you will grow and your life will expand in ways that you did not
allow yourself before.
Our wish is that these WisePlay cards bring you closer to embracing your
whole self and living in joy about your whole person, while learning to
focus on and bring into your life more of the qualities that you are
