Mana Cards: The Power of Hawaiian Wisdom Reviews
As someone who collects (well, more like "hoards") and reads with various types of divination decks, I have to say that this is the most unique deck that I've ever owned, and dare I say, my favorite! From the way the card interpretations are told in the reference book, to the symbolisms significant to Hawaiian Culture seen in the cards, this deck truly has it's own authentic "mana." I've recently had a newfound appreciation for Hawaiian culture, due to the fact that I just completed a Hawaiian Studies class at my university, so it was so exciting going through each card and reading the stories behind the Hawaiian terms and images.
I uploaded some pictures of the cards. Sorry, I am not much of a photographer. Please note the cards have Hawaiian words on them not English. Perhaps I am biased coming from Hawaii, but I enjoyed this deck and book. Some of the legends I grew up with about Lono and Pele came back to mind. I enjoyed the tropical illustrations on the cards. The book was a great information resource. Reading each card description was a learning experience. I appreciated the back of the also contained an alphabetical index of the cards for easy reference, pronunciation guide, and addendum of the illustrated symbols to explain the images used. The suggested spreads were also based on Hawaiian themes. Most of the cards have no reverse meaning, but some do so my only qualm about the cards is the backs make it plain whether the cards are upright or reversed. Other than this small thing Catherine Kalama Becker did a wonderful job of putting together the book for this set and Doya Nardin's illustrations are charming. If you are prepared to learn about Hawaiian culture you will enjoy this set. Aloha Pumehana.
As a regular user of angel, oracle, and tarot cards who had been introduced to this deck through yoga teacher training, I had to have them! As a huge lover of Hawaii, they're now my favorite cards. The lessons and messages are inspiring and spot-on every time I explore and draw cards. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous. I'm brought back to my happy place on the islands with each and every experience with these treasures. <3
I lived in Hawaii for many years and have several decks of cards like this. This is by far my favorite because I can truly connect with the deeper meanings and wisdom of these cards understanding the Hawaiian culture as I do. I'm also learning a lot more, which I love.
Beautiful kit and been wanting them for a long time. I purchased them for about 20 bucks. They usually sell for twice that.
I didn't like the artwork displayed online but really wanted an authentic deck if it's kind. When I got the cards I was actually pleasantly surprised how much I loved the pictures.
i first encountered this set of mana cards in hawaii and they were an incredible addition to the retreat, providing food for mediation and reflection as well as learning about hawaiian mythology and philosophy. i decided i had to own my own set. i'm not really into "fortune telling" or tarot like readings, so my favorite way to use the cards is to meditate for a moment about a problem i'm having or something i'm seeking direction in, then draw a card from the deck. i study the illustration to see what i gather from it, then go to the companion book, and learn about the name and meaning behind it. 9 times out of 10 upon reading the interpretation i find it to be an incredibly relevant response. it only takes a moment of my day, and i feel more conscious of myself and my purpose.
The cards were beautiful. Shipped in good time. Easy to understand which is why my teenager has now taken them hostage. May need a second set. ♡
