Cultivate inner-calm and a sense of purpose! The profound and useful messages in these cards are designed to help you transform your life, health, career and relationships.
The Hawaiian Healing Intention cards can be used personally or professionally as a way to inspire your day, bring meaning to your work, or help your clients, patients and students deepen their journey.
The Healing Intentions are designed to help you change your thoughts, shift your perspective and cultivate new and positive experiences.
THE BOXED SET comes with 44 cards and a guidebook.
SAMPLE INSIGHTS & INTENTIONS
The Hawaiian Healing Intention Cards can be used by:
- Everyone - In daily life for inspiration, comfort and personal growth
- Massage Therapists - To add depth and intent to bodywork sessions
- Healers - To focus and inspire healing sessions
- Teachers - As a talking point and inspirational focus
- Team Leaders - For cultivating a healthy, productive work environment
Nurses & Caregivers - To support themselves and the ones they're caring for
The cards are expected to be available in November and make a great holiday gift to inspire health and wellness in the New Year.
These cards are similar to oracle or tarot decks with one exception, in this deck, the full 'reading' is on the actual card. The guidebook contains all of the insights, plus additional information and inspiration.
To choose a card:
- Hold the deck and imagine it as an extension of your higher wisdom.
- Spread all of the cards out on a table in front of you.
- Close your eyes and trust your hand and heart to guide you to the card that is right for you.
- Simply read the insight and the intention ~ out loud if appropriate.
"Thank you so much for the Intention Cards. They have become a vital part of my daily meditation practice as well as an important adjunct in my massage and healing practice. I’m so grateful to have them available. Mahalo!" Dr. Norb Peil, Licensed Massage Therapist
"Working full-time as a bedside nurse in a busy hospital can be quite chaotic. Reading an "intention card" each morning helps me focus on my patients rather than just the tasks of the day. They help calm my spirit and bring me into the present with each person I encounter." Helen Anne P., Nurse
"Donna's attention to detail as well as her integrity with regard to the sacred Hawaiian traditions blends with her artistry and love--it all shines through her Intention cards...they are a joy and delight to work with!" Karen Rogers, Reiki Master & Teacher
"I love the hawaiian inspirational cards, they are a much needed addition to my Lomi Lomi practice and my personal development and growth." Jason Bratcher, LMT Instructor & Lomi Lomi Practitioner/Teacher
I've been teaching workshops with Tom Cochran since the 1990's. We teach Hawaiian lomi lomi which is a form of bodywork that clears physical, emotional and spiritual trauma and invites the whole and authentic Soul-essence to come present. The work is life-changing and infused with aloha, the spirit of love and acceptance.
These cards were birthed while I was writing a book about our work. I came to the chapter on Intention and Prayer and my fingers came to a grinding halt and wouldn't budge.
I realized that many people feel out-of-control because they are not fully aligned with their heart's purpose, their soul's calling or their birth-right to live authentically. I was inspired to create a tool to teach people how to set intention, especially in regard to healing their life.
Intention activates all of the unseen forces within you and in the universe to support you in your endeavor.
I began by creating a set of 18 cards. We tested the cards by using them in our own healing sessions and by bringing them to all of our workshops. We were curious to see if the cards would bring a new dimension to an already powerful and profound healing process.
Each time we used them, our healing sessions were exponentially more powerful. We were blown away by the response! Every time someone chose a card before their healing session, something from deep within their soul or subconscious would be awakened, making their experience more profound and enlightening. Over the next 8 months I created the full set of 44 cards.
The Hawaiian Language is poetic and deeply meaningful. I chose to integrate Hawaiian names for each card to bring deeper meaning to the messages as well as help (in our own tiny way) to revive this beautiful part of the Hawaiian culture.
Ha'alilio Solomon is a professor and a lecturer at the University of Hawaii and one of only about 20,000 people who speak Hawaiian fluently. Ha'alilio and I worked for several months to find the best Hawaiian name for each card. Ha'alilio is creating a pronunciation guide that will be included in the e-book. He will also be recording his voice pronouncing each Hawaiian word. The audio pronunciations will be available through links in the e-book.
In order to print the cards, we need to raise a minimum of $8,000
Please help support the campaign with a donation and receive one of the following rewards:
- An advance .pdf copy of the e-book with a pronunciation guide and links to audio pronunciations

Deep gratitude to Jim "Kimo" West for allowing me to use his song Ulupalakua Sunset in the video! Kimo is an awesome slack key guitarist. You can visit his website www.jimkimowest.com
Infinite gratitude to my hui (team) that helped me launch this campaign! Ha'alilio Solomon, Tom Cochran, Jonah Cochran, Jane Westberg, Susan Kimi McFadden, Colleen Wall Darby, Erik Scoggan, Rachelle Dior and everyone who used the beta deck and offered feedback, or endured my endless process of creating the writing and graphics. Mahalo Nui Loa!!!
$8000 will give me the confidence to place the minimum order, but won't actually cover the costs. ***GOAL MET!!! MAHALO NUI LOA
$16,000 will cover the pre-production, printing and shipping costs for the minimum order!
$24,000 will allow me to place a larger order (which will make me very happy and help me do more good things in the world).
$28,000 will allow me to place a larger order and give me enough funds to develop a mobile APP of the intentions! This will make me even happier so that I can do even more good things in the world!
Risks and challenges
We estimate that the entire process of printing, including shipping the cards to the US, will take about 12 weeks.
This printer is tried and true and prints some of the most beautiful oracle decks on the market today. That said, the process of proofing art, and printing color cards for the first time, not to mention shipping them around the world certainly leaves room for some mishaps.
We are fully prepared to do everything in our power to facilitate a seamless process and solve any problems that arise.
• Currently, the writing of the cards is 100% complete.
• The guidebook and e-book are nearly complete.
• The artwork is getting the final touches.
Once we know we've reached our funding goal and can commit to our minimal print run, we will dive fully in and prepare the files for the printer.
We have a hui (team) ready to process and ship the orders to you!
We believe that the risks and challenges associated with this project are minimal and we're confident that we can begin shipping the cards and emailing the e-books 3 months after the campaign closes. .pdf's of the e-books may even go out ahead of schedule!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
