Every month I'll draw a card for this group, after meditation and prayer for your highest good. To make this even more effective, you can send me a word or very brief description each month indicating your aim for the upcoming 30 days, ie: peace, forgiveness, focus on physical health, clarity in my relationship or career, etc. You'll also receive access to patron-only posts.

Every two months, we get to speak about what you'd like to leave behind but mostly what you want to realize, grow, achieve, receive, and amply in your life. You are guided into a relaxed, open state where you have access to your own deepest intuition and knowing. One (or more) card is drawn that supports you in the realization of your beautiful true nature and helps guide your days.

About Inner Diamond Insights

I'm Ann Marie Cross, author of Inner Diamond Insight Cards, a deck of 70 messages pointing to the wisdom, joy and creative power that is our true essence. 

My Story
When diagnosed in 1997 with a debilitating auto-immune illness, I left my full-time management position and I began learning a new way of being. Drinking, smoking, and other not-life-affirming habits were gradually dropped. I began painting, and joined an art gallery. I recognized the importance of a strong foundation of self-care. I started treating my illness exclusively with effective, all-natural methods. My intense moods swings and anxiety became helpful subjects for meditation and self-inquiry, gradually becoming less and less problematic. I trained in energy medicine, visual art, values-based leadership, life coaching, natural healing, yoga, and conscious movement. For five years I studied meditation with a beloved Buddhist nun. I don’t have any particular spiritual or religious beliefs other than the eternal, radiant, and divine nature of our true selves.

"Working with Inner Diamond Insight Cards is a valuable practice for anyone on a path to their Higher Self.” 
Diane Taylor, author of The Gift of Memoir (see more testimonials by scrolling down)

"My phone session felt as if my guides were directly speaking with me. Ann Marie has a soft, gentle, soothing voice. I felt her sincere care for my intention.”  Emily Potter, Musician, Utah.

The Story of the Cards and How to Buy Them
The cards were born in 2011, following an intention of sharing with others what had helped me not only cope with chronic illness, anxiety, and self-doubt, but to live life more fully, experiencing with increasing depth the satisfaction, happiness, and sense of humour that comes with truly opening to life, to self, to the moment. The cards are meant to be a comfort, encouragement, inspiration and wake up call for others and for me. I am myself still growing into the wisdom of the cards. I've stumbled and fallen countless times, but more importantly I've gotten back up again (my personal story is below). We're all in this together!

The new 2019 edition is out. Every card was combed through with great care. A few things were dropped, many were added, and there are now 11 new cards, including Courage, Stillness, Upward Spiral, Focus, and Nourishment. All of the old favourites are still here, too, like Beloved (which assures us of our innate purity and goodness), Newness, Celebration, Earthen Vessels (which reminds us of the importance of self-care of body and home) and Inner Teacher. The new edition feels more expansive and has more depth.

These stores are currently selling the cards for $20 to $25 Cdn:
Toronto: Gifts From the Earth
Port Hope: Peaceful Arts
Cobourg: Mystic Roots
                and TNS Health Food
Or you can have them shipped to you or a friend for $32incl. (Canadian)

From the JOKER card: Knock knock! Who's there? Your sense of humour! Piss off. Nice to see you, too. Open up. You need me right now.

About Inner Diamond Insight Cards

The Inner Diamond CELEBRATION card:
All of nature is in a continual celebratory flow.Time to stop pushing for better and better results, and instead recognize the glorious facts of the way things already are. You are a superstar! Don’t believe it? Give it a chance. The truth is that you have accomplished good-enough things for the moment and it’s important to allow that to sink in. Step back, fold your arms, and survey the treasures of your kingdom. Are you still alive? Something to celebrate! Have you learned anything lately? More cause for revelry. What about your friends, or others around you… anything to applaud there? It’s time for a thanksgiving party, no matter what’s going on in your life right now. Blow off some steam, play some music, do some dancing, notice the colours around you, the vitality pulsing in all things. Hopes and dreams can indeed come alive -- some say that’s what we’re here for. So there’s times when attention to detail is important, times when persistence pays off, and times when it’s wise to pause and enjoy what you have created for yourself and what grace has bestowed. Skipping the pause for gratitude and self-satisfaction guarantees that you will feel the treadmill effect at some point, or frequently. Not necessary! The Lord of the Dance formally requests your presence at the festivities.
Indulge in the appreciation of the miracle of You, and of all Life.

How to tell the difference between glass and Diamond? Strike glass and it shatters. But Light can’t be harmed. Listen carefully: You are not alone, and you have more power than you could possibly imagine. Faced with conditions that confuse, frustrate, or seem to confine you? You signed up for this remarkable situation, and it's absolutely happening for a good reason. If it feels like things are going wrong or slow, you are being asked to adjust your pace, invoke curious patience, and open to the situation for you are attaining mastery. Deep lessons are being learned, and all will come to light in time. Sometimes Life says "do you trust me or not?" And you have a choice, an opportunity. You can run away, shut down, point fingers, become helpless… or you can take one step into the part of yourself that is so resilient, so intelligent and so loving that it handles beautifully whatever comes, no problem. Step into the heart of the Diamond. Feel its powerful white-gold light shooting rays out from your center, saturating your aura, forming a peaceful and protected space for your being. From this secure place, you can take appropriate action when the time is right.
Beneath the surface, things are shifting. Seeds for magnificent flowers are waking up. Be unwavering in your yielding to your true power.
