I have always been a student of life and I have always wanted to know what is the 'Key to Happiness.' Perhaps it is this eternal quest that led me to the discovery of this most amazing system. When a friend handed me an old book about the cards and said, "Here, look up your card and see what it says about you," I was doubtful. How could any system based solely upon my birthday have anything relevant to say about me? I was an astrologer after all, and as many people know, an astrology chart requires the date, time, and place of our birth to be accurate. Still, I was interested and read a small section about my Birth Card. I was stunned a little after reading it. First of all, it was telling me things about myself that were true, but they were qualities that I hadn't accepted about myself. I felt the book was a little negative on my card, the Queen of Diamonds, but I had to admit that it was an accurate portrayal. Something inside told me that I had stumbled upon a gemstone of knowledge. My second sense about books and information has always been accurate and I knew then and there that this information came from a high and genuine source of spiritual truth.
I immediately acquired a copy of that book, called Sacred Symbols of the Ancients, and began reading up on everyone I knew. My thirst for more information was growing each day. But as I searched and searched, I could find no other books about this mysterious card system. There were lots of books on reading playing cards, but none gave me the feeling this book did. After about a year, I finally gave up searching, resigning myself to the reality that there really were no other books on this subject.
A couple of months later I made a big move to Los Angeles. Strangely enough, within two weeks of moving there a friend came over and noticed Sacred Symbols on my book shelf. "You have that book too?" she said. "Did you know there is a man in town who has written another book about the cards? His name is Arne Lein and he has been teaching classes about it." To make a long story short, I met Arne Lein, took classes from him, and received my initiation into this wonderful body of information. Over a year later, after Arne passed away, I dedicated myself to introducing this system to the world and began writing my first book about it.
About six years ago I had a reading done by a prominent psychic in Los Angeles. Most of the reading was useless mumbo jumbo, but at one point in the reading the psychic stopped what he was talking about and said, "Your deceased aunt, Elizabeth, wants to tell you something and she won't leave me alone until I tell you this." I told him to go ahead and he said, "She was an author herself. She knows you are writing books and she wanted me to tell you that when you write your book, think about creating a book that would be the book you have been looking for your entire life. Think about what book would make you feel like you had found the most valuable treasure in the world. Then, go out and write that book."
I took some notes and he went on with the rest of his reading. But that one message made a lasting impression on me. The feeling Aunt Elizabeth described is how I felt when I discovered Sacred Symbols. Honestly, there have been several other books that have made me feel that way and each one of them proved to be invaluable in my life, giving me priceless information that helped me to transform aspects of my life. I hope Love Cards has that impact for you.
When I meet people today, I immediately ask them their birthday. Once I know their birthday, I usually know more about them than they know about themselves. I constantly study people and learn more and more about them through the use of this system. This knowledge gives a certain kind of power. I can make predictions about people that come true 90 percent of the time. Knowing a person's card tells what to expect from them and gives an idea of how we will relate with one another. It gives an understanding of life that brings great joy.
It has also helped me to understand and accept myself. Much of the pain and suffering of my early life is gone, partly because I am no longer fighting with myself so much. I have come to accept myself in areas where I used to be in turmoil and conflict. And I believe this is one of the most priceless gifts this system has to offer. If you read this book and are able to understand and accept yourself a little more, then I have been successful.
But the potential is here for much more than that. There are literally hundreds of uses for this information,all of which will help your life and the life of those you love. The truth is really a loving thing. It spreads light wherever it goes, releasing much of the tension we experience from misunderstandings and inner conflicts. And as the wise man Swami Kripalu Vanandji once said:
Where there is darkness, let there be light.
Where there is sadness, let there be joy.
Where there is ignorance, let there be truth.
Where there is hate and anger, let there be love.
Best wishes in your personal path to light, joy, truth, and love. Robert Lee Camp
