What Might Einstein Think of SoulCollage®?
by Karen Mann


German-born physicist Albert Einstein is considered to be the most influential physicist of the 20th century.

This unique and brilliant thinker was a big advocate of creativity, intuition and the power of imagination and creative visualization. We definitely think Einstein would have made and consulted SoulCollage® cards, had he been around when Seena B. Frost created the process, as SoulCollage® engages all of these.

Einstsein (Committee Suit) by Anne Marie Bennett
 
I Am One Who has learned not to take myself so seriously.


Einstein acknowledged that imagination had a great deal to do with his scientific work. He once said:

"I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination."
- Retrieved from brainyquote.com

In fact, Einstein developed his theory of relativity by visualizing what would happen if he travelled through space on the tip of a light beam. He often used visualization techniques to contemplate and test different scenarios, and only then did he translate them into the language of mathematics and physics.

Contemplating Transformation (Committee Suit) by Nancy Davies

I Am One Who contemplates transformation, in the sky and within myself.

Einstein used many creative strategies in his work, and really could have been talking about making SoulCollage® cards when he said:

"The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, and the solution comes to you, and you don't know how or why."  Retrieved from chatna.com

Often, when you are making a SoulCollage® card, you are simply drawn to an image without understanding why, and it's only later on that it all makes sense. The intellect certainly does have little to do with it.

And the more you use SoulCollage®, the further down the "road to [self-] discovery" you'll get, and the more in tune with your intuition you'll find yourself.

SoulCollage® is simple and fun. All you need to do is "draw freely on your imagination" as you pick images that attract you. Then cut them out and glue them down. No prior artistic experience or aptitude required. Just the thing for a hard-working physicist to relax with!

It's certainly fun to imagine Einstein making his own deck of SoulCollage® cards and consulting them for creative inspiration, self-awareness, and inner guidance.

Included in this kit is SoulCollage® Evolving, the basic text for SoulCollage®. Once you have looked at the book, you'll want to get started right away making cards with the 12 blank cards and the glue stick in this kit. Many SoulCollagers want to cover their cards with the glove-like high quality sleeve so these are included as well.


Seena Frost gives a basic introduction to the SoulCollage® process and leads a guided meditation to help people identify allies for their Companion Suit. Listening to Seena you will easily understand the basics of this satisfying and inspiring art process and be ready to get started.



This app is a completely different way to store images of your cards. You can easily share your cards with others and do readings with your cards - wherever you are.  You can even save your readings and the notes you take as you do the I Am One Who exercise.
