Using kickstarter

So what is the ๐๐€๐“๐‡ ๐Ž๐… ๐“๐‡๐„ ๐ˆ๐‹๐‹๐”๐Œ๐ˆ๐๐€๐“๐„๐ƒ ๐’๐Ž๐”๐‹ and why use a ๐Š๐ˆ๐‚๐Š๐’๐“๐€๐‘๐“๐„๐‘ campaign?

๐“๐ก๐ž ๐ฌ๐ญ๐จ๐ซ๐ฒ ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐œ๐š๐ซ๐๐ฌ In 2009 I had an idea - a new deck was being to be birthed. It was following a journey of the soul - my journey but also that of many others in this world. The deck was to become The JOURNEY of the ILLUMINATED SOUL and it is a story of our spiritual awakening and the challenges we face along the path. Itโ€™s a healing journey where we face our past problems and overcome them in order to be aligned and more powerful in ourselves. Itโ€™s a great story and a journey of life. So join me.

๐“๐ก๐ž ๐๐ž๐œ๐ค ๐œ๐ซ๐ž๐š๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง By mid 2020 I had created the deck and started to use it daily for readings. Now being a deck of 67 cards and slightly oversize I had to approach printing and publishing these in a slightly different way to the previous MOON ENERGY DECK which many of you will be familiar with.

๐๐ซ๐จ๐๐ฎ๐œ๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง Having a hard case box with bigger cards entailed a little more expense that my more limited funds this year could stretch to. I also wanted to keep the card production within the UK and not to outsource to China. This does mean they are a little more expensive but I think in the current climate we should be supporting our smaller businesses here in the UK. SO I decided to launch a kickstarter funding appeal in order to allow these cards to be birthed into being.

๐’๐จ ๐ฐ๐ก๐š๐ญ ๐ข๐ฌ ๐š ๐ค๐ข๐œ๐ค๐ฌ๐ญ๐š๐ซ๐ญ๐ž๐ซ? A kickstarter is a way that people can see the project and decide to back it if they would like to be involved. Now itโ€™s like preorder but without handing over the cash now! So what the kickstarter does is allow people to make a pledge in return for an award. This enables funds to be raised in order to cover production of the first set of cards. If the kickstarter fund does not reach its goal no money is taken from any one person that has pledged towards it.

๐’๐จ ๐๐จ ๐ˆ ๐ก๐š๐ฏ๐ž ๐ญ๐จ ๐ฉ๐š๐ฒ ๐ง๐จ๐ฐ ๐ญ๐จ ๐ฉ๐ฅ๐ž๐๐ ๐ž? No you donโ€™t. When you pledge you are adding to a list of backers who are promising to help fund the project when the kickstarter has successfully reached its target. So if you were to pledge today you will not be charged or asked for any money until a] the kickstarter is successful or b] the kickstarter has ended.

OK the kickstarter runs until the 1 November 2020. Only then if it is successful will it ask you and collect funds. If it does not succeed you DO NOT pay.

SO when the 1 November (or earlier with every toe crossed) comes around and the money has been processed, the printers will be instructed to go ahead and print the first 200 copies of the cards. Once delivered they will need packing and posting by me. My aim would be to get all cards out by the end of November so hopefully everyone should receive them in Decemberโ€ฆ

I totally understand that not everyone can afford the deck at this moment in time - itโ€™s been a tricky year. I have added some little rewards to the list - for small amounts of money that you can get. I've also offered some reading options so if you'd like a little reading from me using the cards do go and make a pledge - they start from just ยฃ9 and I would love to read for you. There's also a soul path game and pendulum boards up for grabs. Anything is a help and all will go towards the ultimate goal of printing the cards.

The biggest and most amazing thing you can do for me is to share. They cards may not be your cup of tea but they may be that of your friendsโ€ฆ A share is worth a thousand kind words and many blessings from my heart ๐Ÿ’œ to yours.
