A deck of 68 visually striking prompts to activate your creative imagination for sovereign sense-making.
You can use this deck as you would any Oracle deck to bring your diverse thoughts and feelings into harmony through creatively engaging with a symbolic prompt.
Each prompt is a synaesthetic pairing of visual muse and verbal mantra. When contemplating a prompt, your multiple sense-making intelligences are activated to arrive at an integrated, intuitive and deeply personal meaning.
Novelties of Nous prompts demonstrate nine practices associated with Living Life Artistically: - Imagination - Curiosity - Attention - Intention - Improvisation - Perception - Experience - Transformation - Sovereignty
Nous, or Artistic Mind, is an expansive form of knowing that becomes available through the conscious practices of creativity and contemplation. Thousands of individuals throughout time have accessed nous in search of guidance, insight, healing, innovation, and inspiration. This includes writers, painters, poets, dancers, actors, activists, philosophers, educators, biologists, scientists, designers, architects, historians, mathematicians, psychologists and sages. Accessing the timeless wisdom of Artistic Mind through these Novelties of Nous prompts is a personal practise that may enrich your daily life by bringing curiosity, sensitivity, paradox and play into the foreground of your attention.
These prompts are simple to use, but far-reaching in effect. They can be used on a daily basis to: 1) support your sovereign sense-making potential, 2) bring wonder and appreciation into play, 3) strengthen your intuitive and imaginative abilities.
1) Hold a statement or question in mind related to your current life experience. For example: "I feel stuck." Shuffle the deck before randomly drawing a single prompt. Notice any associations, feelings or memories that arise as you contemplate both the visual muse as well as the verbal mantra. How do these two impulses complement each other?
2) Hold a feeling sense of your issue or life experience. You may not be able to translate this feeling into words, but it could appear as a sensation of hollowness, heaviness or anticipation. Once again, shuffle the deck before randomly drawing a single prompt. Notice any associations, feelings or memories that arise as you contemplate both the visual muse as well as the verbal mantra. Do any words or phrases stand out in relation to your felt sense?
3) You can also simply allow your curiosity to ride the explosion of colors and shapes in the visual muse in an imaginative reverie that brings deeper insights to the surface for reflection.
Novelties of Nous collectible decks are the collaborative result of over 20 years of artistic research by Samantha Prigge (content curator, graphic designer & founder of iNous) and Lanon Prigge (muse and artist). Read more about us here.
