We made it to the goal in just 31 hours! Thank YOU!!
But it isn't over yet! We are only 1/2 way through the campaign now, and we have much more magic to make.
"One of the most powerful, accurate, and unique oracle card series on the planet. These are definitely not your average set of cards. Packed with energy, they deliver profound & insightful readings, bringing the guidance and direction from Spirit you need."
The Return of Spirit and "a return of spirit"...
The Return of Spirit oracle deck isn’t a prototype or a concept deck. No, far from it actually. The deck was printed and released in 2013, and sold in retail metaphysical / new age shops around the globe.
Like it's predecessors (the Path of the Soul & the Divine Guidance oracle cards) the Return of Spirit deck was also a bestseller, even outselling Doreen Virtue decks in Canada on it's release. Since 2007, each deck has landed on the bestseller’s list for oracle cards in North America on release, and they remained there while in print.
Pretty amazing, hey? Even more amazing when I tell you I am an independent and self-published author. I don’t have a publishing company, or anyone for that matter, backing me. All I had was little ‘ol me... (well, and the Universe too, obviously). Way back in 2005 when I just a lowly intuitive fractal artist with a dream, I never imagined this work would be loved around the world.
To be honest, I was scared out of my wits to put out my first deck. What did I know about publishing? Marketing and selling stuff? What if no one liked them? What if what I had to offer the world wasn’t enough, or good enough? What if I failed? Better yet, what if I succeeded? (That alone would ruin every well loved belief I carried that I had nothing of value to offer the world. That I, as a person, wasn’t enough.)
None of it mattered anyway. I didn’t have a penny to start with. But the idea continued to percolate and the calling in the pit of my soul telling me I needed to do this wouldn’t go away. So when a friend offered to front the money for the first print run, after many months of humming and hawing about it, I accepted. I figured if that much money had come my way then the Universe must want it too. Yeah, my fears were just gonna have to take a hike.
We have lift off!
That first deck, Path of the Soul, hit the bestseller’s list in Canada shortly after its release, and remained there. The same thing happened with the 2nd deck, Divine Guidance. The decks were even translated into Dutch and Japanese. It was around this time I also gained global distribution. The cards were in shops in Canada, the US, UK, Ireland, parts of Europe, Sweden, Australia, and New Zealand.
I was more than amazed. I was completely blown away! Especially when I released the Return of Spirit deck and it too hit the oracle cards bestsellers list. Everything was happening. I was teaching intuition workshops internationally, doing readings by phone to people around the world, had thousands of fans on Facebook. Most days it was hard to find time for a bathroom break, I was so busy.
But that all changed in 2015 when personal circumstances came crashing into my life at full throttle. It didn’t just hit me though. It flattened me into the ground... Six feet under, metaphorically speaking. And by early 2016 everything came to a complete halt. There was no room for a career, the cards, the incredible souls who followed my work. I had to walk away from it all. From everyone and everything. Especially the blinding spotlight.
It was a long road finding my way back from there. But now, as 2018 peeks around the corner, I can say I am definitely back and here to stay. I’ll not let anything separate me from this again. But one great thing did come from this experience. I know now, this is why I was put on God’s green earth. Without a doubt, this is what I'm here to do: bring messages of guidance, hope, and inspiration through the cards, writings, and other intuitive work.
The love and support I've received from my fans since my return has brought me to tears, numerous times actually. Even after close to two years of being away, they are still here. They are why I do this.
And they are why I am here on Kickstarter. To get these cards back out into the world (where they belong) and into the hands of those who love them, starting with the Return of Spirit (ROS) deck. I don't have a single deck left and I'm starting from scratch... again.
I can't do it alone.

I have just enough of the Path of the Soul and Divine Guidance decks to run this campaign, but the ROS deck is completely out of stock.That's where the funds from Kickstarter come in... to print the Return of Spirit deck.
And lastly... this is me, Cheryl Lee Harnish.
You'll find the links to my website and Facebook at the bottom of the page. :) And there's also an awesome fractal art video of mine you can watch farther down the page so keep scrolling.
So what the heck is a fractal?
The high quality of the cards and insightful messages of the in-depth guidebook is not the only reason behind the deck's success. It's the incredible energy of the fractal art images that make these cards so highly sought after.
More than just mathematics, fractals are the equations that describe how energy creates itself into form. Every living and natural form on Earth is created from fractal geometry, including us, and are often referred to as "the Thumbprint of God".
Studies by the University of Oregon found that simply looking at fractal patterns had a profound and positive effect "on physiological and cognitive functions, including reducing physiological stress (Ulrich 1993) and restoring the ability to focus attention (Kaplan 1995)." - Perceptions Publication, Vol. 37.
In essence, these decks are like "living art" and our brains and bodies respond to it. I believe this directly contributes in aiding us to connect with our intuition and a higher source of guidance through the cards. And perhaps this is why the cards deliver such profound and accurate readings.
My fractal artwork is created on fractal generating software where fractal formulas are applied, layer after layer, to a base fractal called a mandelbrot. Each time a formula is applied, the fractal changes. I never know what is going to show up on the screen and I have zero control over what the fractal will look like. My work is mainly intuitive, meaning, I'm tuned into Spirit when I'm working. It can take weeks to complete even one fractal.
(Feel the energy of fractals for yourself in this powerful video I made. The moving fractals took many weeks to render. Be sure to turn on your sound.)
This incredible deck is completely out of print. Together, we can get them back out into the world where they belong.
We've hit the original goal, so now what?
1st stretch goal was $20,000 -- hitting our 1st stretch means that each and every one of you will receive a copy of my Heart Opening meditation as a download AND every single deck will be signed!
2nd stretch goal is $32,000 - One of the easiest ways you can help is by sharing this campaign with everyone on FB, Twitter, and Instagram!
Why the stretch?
Well, the other 2 decks need to be re-printed as well. I'm down to my last few decks. I've seen other tarot card campaigns on Kickstarter exceed far above their goals. I'm hoping we can too. So, I thought it was important you know exactly where your pledge dollars are going.
Every dollar above our original goal goes towards:
- Re-printing the Path of the Soul and Divine Guidance decks
- Funding the creation of a brand new deck (something many have been asking for)
- Getting the Facebook app up and running again so everyone can enjoy drawing cards for themselves and friends FOR FREE.
- Getting book 2 of the Matchstick series edited and released.
- Updating and re-releasing the Android and iPhone card apps.
- And lastly, making the Return of Spirit deck into a phone app,
I know, it's a big long list, and all these project combined require more funding that what our stretch goal is set at, but it's important you know what kind of magic YOU can make happen by making a pledge. <3
FYI: If your country isn't listed under the "ship to" list when you attempt to pledge, please message me (in the "comments" tab at the top) and I'll add it. Please note, I currently cannot ship to India or South Africa. So sorry <3
So, what's in it for you? Oooh, lots of goodies...
If your country isn't listed under the "ship to" list when you attempt to pledge for a reward, please message me and I'll see about adding it in for you. Please note, I currently cannot ship to India or South Africa. So sorry. <3
1. The Return of Spirit oracle cards and 109 pg guidebook.
I'm pretty sure this is what brought you here. If you pre-order the deck through kickstarter, you’re not only getting one fresh off the press, but you could also have it signed if you chose one of the "signed copy" pledges!
2. The other 2 oracle decks in the series.
As I said, I have only a small amount of stock left. These decks are just as stunning and powerful as the ROS deck and also have 44 cards and a guidebook. They have both been translated into Dutch and Japanese. And as I stated earlier, funding from this campaign will also go towards reprinting these decks as well, if we can surpass the project goal. <3
#3. A Seed of Love paperback
When realities merge and miracles abound, one thing is for certain... we are never alone.
It takes courage to follow your heart, find your purpose in life and fulfill your destiny. Sometimes, discovering your gifts is only half the battle. The other half is overcoming the limiting self-beliefs and fears that hold you back. It's time to remember that you are not but one small person. You are a creative Spirit made in the likeness of God. It is time to claim your greatness and your power. It is time to cultivate your Seed of Love in this world.
#4. One hour Intuitive readings with me!
You won't have to wait long for your reading. I will begin booking your appointments for Dec/Jan the moment the campaign ends in Dec. My goal is to get you booked and read as soon as possible. Of course, much depends on how many pledges I receive.
We will do our 1 hour reading by phone or Skype (depending on where you live) and possibly in-person (if things align and I am not traveling, and you are from the Vancouver/Seattle area and are willing to travel to see me).
#5. Soul Portraits
These are what started it all. I began offering Soul portraits in 2005, and let me say, wow, were they popular! This is what eventually led me to making the first card deck.
An intuitive fractal created from your soul's energetic imprint. They take 3 - 6 weeks to complete. (Yep, really.) I spend time each day intuitively connecting into your energy while working on your fractal. I apply mathematical (fractal) formulas, layered one on top of another, over and over in a special fractal generating program. There can be over 1000 layers applied. And I never know what will show up in the image or how the fractal will change as each formula is applied. You will receive a 16x20 (inch) fine art print of the fractal portrait with a small write up explaining the fractal and any intuitive impressions I get from it.
# 6. Instructional Video
Digital download - The video not only guides you through the basics of doing a card reading for yourself, it also covers the three spreads described in the Return of Spirit booklet. Learn how to connect to the cards, the fractals, and the basics of tapping into your own intuition. I even share some of the top secret material I cover in my intuition courses to help you get the most out of your readings.
This end is just the beginning...

Risks and challenges
Getting the Return of Spirit deck back out as quickly and efficiently as possible is the goal. Though I am estimating to have the cards physically in my hands before or by March 30th 2018, sometimes there can be delays due to the printing process or with the shipment arriving from over-seas in a timely fashion. This is why I'm giving the cards a "release" date of June 2018.
But the moment I have them, you will too. So let's pray things go smoothly and we get them by March 30th 2018!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
