In the 40 years it took to create the Apprentice Cards, I was blessed to channel through photographs of nature, 7 groups of 5 cards that transformed my life and are here to transform yours. Enter your inner world, explore and discover what you know to be true for you; trust your process and become what has been transformed.


Since Antiquity, civilizations worldwide looked upon the natural elements –EARTH, WATER, FIRE, AIR and SPACE– as fundamental to existence, respecting the divine presence within them. The Ancients knew that feeling connected to Mother Earth, to whom we owe our life, is crucial for our sanity and well being.

Nowadays, with all systems overloaded, we have lost our connection to the order and cycles of the natural world. We perceive and experience ourselves as isolated entities, believing our individual life force is separate from nature herself. The Earth, as the primary recipient of our actions, is merely responding to and mirroring what we are doing to ourselves and each other.


The Apprentice Cards return us to what the Ancients knew: To transform, we must engage the hidden truths that control our world, so that their wisdom may reveal itself to us. Through use of the Apprentice Cards, we are able to connect to the transformative power of the elements, bringing forth our inner clarity and enlightenment. These nature-inspired images act as a guide to translating this knowledge, thus gaining mastery over our life.

“When I first started using the Apprentice Cards, I had given zero attention to the meaning or importance of the 5 elements. I was so focused on finding healing and solution, that I ignored the very structure that allows them to heal. The truth is, these cards carry so much purpose and depth, making the experience of using them seem almost surreal. But it is their complexity that makes them undeniably meaningful. I had been utilizing the cards on my own for 9 months before understanding the components and energies behind the 5 elements. After gaining that insight and understanding, my experience with the Apprentice Cards was taken to a level of clarity and beauty that I didn’t know was possible. Any confusion or hesitation garnered from my practice melted away, as I was finally able to connect with the elements that make up our entire existence.”

The Apprentice Cards are, first of all, sensual: they are exquisite to look at and delectable to touch. Each one of them is a great work of art. But they are so much more. Every card is like a gateway to other dimensions, other frequencies of energy. Every time I’ve used them—both on my own and in a session with Monique—I felt a distinct presence, as if the cards are ensouled by an intelligence, a nature spirit.

How do the cards work? I think the image first works on our subconscious to draw out what needs to come into the light of awareness. Second, there appears to be a non-verbal communication from the nature spirit that infuses the card, which “speaks” to our intuitive faculties. And lastly, the keyword on the back reveals the card’s message – which, again, needs to be interpreted by every card user.

To me, the Apprentice Cards are like a personal oracle. I can imagine a Sybil crouching over the intoxicating fumes that oozed from a crack at Delphi, and uttering messages inscribed on these cards.
