Associative cards “52 answers”

The set consists of 60 cards: 52 original drawings, 5 additional cards

Whether you think you can, or you think you can't - you're right. /H.Ford/

These 52 drawings are the reflections of your thoughts. These cards are not a miracle cure or tools for sortilege or fortune telling. No tricks - just you and your mind. It is all about the fact that we are completely different and with our own unique perceptions, associations, experience and convictions. This is why each person will see the same card differently and even you will do so depending on various life situations. These cards will let you find your specific answers as you will see and notice exactly what your mind is ready to accept and fulfill. Those will be your unique answers to your unique questions. Maybe you have already found answers to some of your questions by simply talking to yourself but some of the questions still don't give a peace of mind. Use these associative cards as they carry hidden details that will help you to find ''out of the box'' solutions. Go for it!

These cards will be useful:

  • to anybody seeking answers for themselves;
  • for teams to get feedback;
  • in communication with children to help them articulate some experience, bright emotional moment or some ''uncomfortable'' topic;
  • in a party as a way to get to know each other;
  • in coaching sessions for finding client's resources;
  • for wonderful fairy tale evenings with family using the drawings to create your own story. 

How to use:
  1. Define a question/situation to what you will be looking for answers/solutions now  
  2. Pick a random card or the drawing that ''speaks to you''
  3. What do you see? Putting emotions aside tell what exactly you see in the card. Name facts, possible emotions of the objects in the drawing, colors, layout or how things are intertwined. Do not yet interpret what you see, just say what you see in the card.
  4. What is it about? Define your description as a metaphor so that it answers the question: ''What in your opinion do the things you said before symbolize?'' or ''what do you think this card is about?'' Now is the time for interpretation but not for solving your situation. The metaphor must be general and it should not give clear and direct answer to your question.
  5. How could it be connected to your question? Finally – answer the question: ''How is your metaphor connected to your question?'' Start to interpret adding various metaphor related answers to your question. Not all answers will fit you and not all you will like, so carry on interpreting until you come up with at least 3 acceptable answers.
  6. If you have not found the right answer yet, you can use one of the 5 additional cards (those with various size and color squares) - it could give you a new direction or depth. 
  7. When you have found answers that resonate with you and you feel you want to explore them more then prioritize them, write them down and start to prepare your action plan by making a list of all the things you could possibly do already today/ this week/ this month to solve your issue.
