always been fascinated by readers and psychic consultants
who are able to develop their own style, oracle, and mythology;
without fail, it sets them apart from the stereotypical
reader with a deck of Tarot cards, and it goes without
saying that they are remembered by even the most casual
case in point is a woman in my area who has been working
professionally for more than 20 years. She is, technically,
a channeler, but her public appearances have all the characteristics
of the traditional Q&A act -- people ask questions,
and she answers them. One of the intriguing aspects of
her presentation, however, is where she gains her insights
-- her method is to go into a trance and contact her spirit
guide... who happens to be an extraterrestrial who at
one time walked this earth as a 9th century knight. Not
to belabor the point, but she's been working... professionally...
for more than 20 years.
question each of us must ask ourselves is this: "How
do I distinguish myself from every other reader out there?"
with Spirit Cards is a guide to constructing and using
a special pack of cards for giving readings. It is intended
as a set of guidelines and suggestions to open up your
own creativity more so than a set of rigid instructions;
think of it as a recipe for more powerful readings. Like
any good recipe, every creative reader will be able to
recognize the flexibility and modify it to suit their
own individual taste, which, in my mind, is the sign of
a good system. And you never know -- you may find that
you, too, have a 9th century extraterrestrial spirit guide.
the seasoned reader will note that many of the ideas have
been in circulation for a while, that's kind of like saying
that all the components of the light bulb existed long
before Thomas Edison had his bright idea. John has combined
them into a very effective oracle with an emphasis on
the art of Hoodoo that has great potential.
reader wouldn't want a truly one-of-a-kind pack of cards
that could speak to them from the spirit world?"
John states in the book's introduction, "Use this
information carefully, guard it well, and you will be

John teaches you how to create your own personal pack
of Spirit Cards, it will become a natural extension of
you and your unique style. I think it's safe to say that
no two packs of Spirit Cards will be the same.
will your clients see? Regardless of how detailed you
want to get, they will see you delivering readings with
a unique set of cards that no other reader has, covered
with signs, sigils and symbols that may (or may not, depending
on you) have been communicated to you by forces beyond
our ordinary world.
in plain sight, of course, within the fascinating signs
and symbols is the
secret (but easy to use) cue system that makes it a snap
to deliver a reading easily for each card. John shares
his own personal background and interest in the art of
Hoodoo, as well as the process by which he developed the
Spirit Card system. Also revealed is the mnemonic cue
system he uses, plus other components that you may want
to use while creating your own unique set of Spirit Cards.
closely following the instructions contained in Readings
with Spirit Cards will provide you with a custom-made
set of cards with which you will be able to deliver powerfully
meaningful readings, the real key lies in the perception
your clients walk away from the table with. Understand
that many of your clients have had Tarot, palmistry, numerological
and a host of other types of readings before they even
meet you. While these are all viable systems (which I
use to this day), it goes without saying that the reading
that will stick in the mind of the client is the one that
they have not seen before. Hence, the Spirit Cards.
what Richard Webster has said about the Spirit Cards:
delighted you're publishing Readings
with Spirit Cards. When John first sent it to me
several months ago I immediately made up a set of
cards, and have had a great deal of fun with them.
People love the designs on the cards, and have no
idea they're receiving a card reading."
you catch that last bit? "...People... have no
idea they're receiving a card reading" -- the
one-of-a-kind symbols and signs displayed on each Spirit
Card seem to move the reading into another realm well
beyond that of the typical reading.

addition, John talks about how to present yourself as
a reader, why you don't necessarily have to get 'hits'
(although you most certainly will, of course), and --
perhaps most importantly, the power of both the Spirit
Cards and you, the reader.
fun and clever system for sure... I especially liked
his ideas concerning the Elian script stuff. Hoodoo
certainly is catching on these days (again) and
this book is a valuable addition to installing the
'old age' as opposed to the 'new age' folk magic
into the world of cold reading.
A Cartomancer's Chapbook

that you are a somewhat experienced card reader. For those
who are not, however, a basic introduction to cartomancy
The section titled, "A Cartomancer's Chapbook",

Bonus Report: The Conjure Man's Seeing Stones
developing the Spirit Cards reading technology, John tried
several alternative possibilities. As noted above, one
of the strengths of the Spirit Cards system is its flexibility,
and the Conjure Man's Seeing Stones are an excellent example
of that flexibility.
this special bonus report, John outlines what has become
his favorite application of the Spirit Cards system --
lithomancy (readings with small stones) -- and shares
how he uses his set of thirteen stones in such a way that
they work as a full deck of 52 cards in the context
of a reading.
effect, with the addition of this special report, you
are actually getting TWO reading oracles that could very
well be used in conjunction with each other for full-length
(i.e., higher-priced) readings, PLUS the insight and experience
of a seasoned professional.
