Shadow Cards offer a refreshing way to explore not just psychic phenomenon but core emotional truth.
Welcome to the Metaphorum, a place where new horizons of coincidence and synchronicity are constantly unfolding. This site features the Shadow Cards, a psychological tool that creates random metaphors, food for thought. These metaphors can relate to what’s going on in your life on different levels and thus trigger nourishing insight from the unconscious. They spark unique personal symbolism that can help make meaning out of chaos as well as dreams. Sometimes the meaning of the metaphors is very illuminating, sometimes less so. Yet each combination offers a chance to stimulate creativity and exercise imaginative association. The process of metaphor recognition helps foster intuition, mental clarity and better communication. It may even strengthen or increase the dendrites or connections between the nerves in the brain. How does it work? By revealing how the internal world creatively corresponds with the external world, by revealing how issues, challenges and relationships are transformed when looked at from many angles. More perspective equals more understanding.
The Shadow Cards blend with the synchronicity of everyday living. They reflect the random shades of significance that characterize human existence. However, the Shadow Cards are NOT like a Tarot deck because the interpretation suggestions are not rigidly codified. Nonetheless, some people have described the Shadow Cards as a Jungian Tarot.
Carl Jung coined the word synchronicity to refer to the conjunction of “universal forces” with the thoughts, emotions, memories and experiences in peoples’ lives.
These are my notes from Shadow Cards today.This will be an ongoing experiment into my sub conscious mind.
The words in bold print were the cards that came up.

My inner being “EXPOSE”
My “Rules” remembering to play

Road ahead is Road ahead
going for the nectar of Life

There is only one “JUDGE”
It’s all in how you “PLAY” the game
Don’t “WASTE” time
“Sabotage” goes two ways
“Grow” into the light within your shadow
Remember the Om in “WISDOM”
Sometimes when you go with the flow,you have to acknowledge the “SHIFT”

Only the “Shadow” knows
what I “Deserve”
Is the “Illusion” my reality?
“Avoid” the collision
“Dismiss” the outcome
Do my dreams “Sabotage” me?
No “Envy” in my heart
The light of my “Soul”
The “Wisdom” of my years

To “Die” is the cycle of life
“Ignore” a problem only enforces facing it
There is life in “Belief”
On the “Agenda”
“Dark Night of “Soul”
The “Good” and bad of yin-yang
What am I looking at?
On a stage
revealing shadow side
Seesaw of life
“Trust” in the Light
what is my match?
being validated by self
Is this a dance?
Swimming in the magic of my emotions

“MAD” is just DAM spelled backwards
There is “MAGIC” knowing when to STOP
The maze of our “EGO”
There is No Good or Bad in “Mediocre”
Help someone if you feel “HELPLESS”
“SHADOW” around the corner
“TRUST” that you are at the right place in this moment
Do not be “ASHAMED” of sharing your soul
“Demolish” all negative thoughts
Be “YOUNG” at heart

What you see as a “Illusion” is a glimpse at your reality
Just because you turn something off does not mean you “Reject” it.
There is only one “Judge“
If you feel the desire too “Manipulate“get over it
As a “Rule” I am
YOU ARE NOT “INADEQUATE“
“Lovers” take time to Listen
“Commune” is an intentional community
I only “Brag” when I find a good deal at a thrift store
“Demolish” is a wreck in process

If you want your compass to guide you show more “compassion“
Take “Bored” out of your Zone~Do Something Different
“Dismiss” the negative and focus on the positives
You are not “Inadequate” You are beautiful just the way you are
It’s a “MAD” world we live in
Don’t “Sabotage“We often get into trouble trying to escape intense negative feelings.
“Old” is just a word,as age is but a number

Life is like a “magic” carpet ride.Unknown destinations.
You have to play life’s “game” to survive it.
“Life” can be complete if you allow it to be.
It is “sacred “and full of wisdom.
Emotions play a major role,you have to understand them.
Things come to an “end” so other things can materialize.
“Compassion” is a powerful attribute.
Sometimes it’s OK to “brag” about your accomplishments.
Always let your “truths” shine brightly.It’s better to hurry up and wait then to not play the game.
Control your urge to “dominate“,lay low sometimes.
Never be “ashamed “of your past,it brought you to NOW,this moment.
