How the site came to be is really quite simple. The short answer, Kismet exists for love of and belief in the Destiny Cards system and a desire to bring it forward through simple language, humor, technology and ease of use. But if you want to understand a little bit more about the people behind the site, the long answer is this….
Kismet is the creation of four individuals (The Sensitive Advocate, The Tuned-In Realist, The Unconventional Sage, and The Witty Navel-Gazer) brought together by fate to learn
from one another and do something far bigger than any of them could have accomplished alone.
It was on a summer trip to Colorado (because The Sensitive Advocate had thought she was going to find love in the mountains), that they met The Unconventional Sage. Little did The Sensitive Advocate know, it wasn’t the love of another person but the love of an ancient system that had been patiently waiting for millennia to be introduced to the masses that had brought them to Colorado. #itiskismet
The Sensitive Advocate, The Tuned-In Realist, and The Witty Navel-Gazer decided to get a psychic reading at a charming basement bookstore located in Boulder. The Unconventional Sage was the intuitive doing the readings and it was then that she introduced them to the Destiny Cards system. The whole group was amazed at the accuracy of the readings, but The Tuned-In Realist was more than just amazed, she was mesmerized. She wanted to learn as much as she could...and now!
So The Tuned-In Realist bought all the books she could find (because that’s what realists do) but knew that it wouldn’t be enough. For weeks, she thought about contacting The Unconventional Sage...key phrase being ‘thought about it’. Until one day as she was digging around in her wallet, fate stepped in and dumped a card out of her purse. She picked it up off the floor and looked at it. It belonged to The Unconventional Sage. She looked up, said ‘OK, got it’, and sat immediately down at her computer to send an email to The Unconventional Sage who was just about to start a class on the Destiny Cards system. #itiskismet
So, as The Tuned-In Realist mentored under The Unconventional Sage, she shared what she was learning with The Sensitive Advocate and The Witty Navel-Gazer. They found themselves talking about relationships in terms the cards, the characteristics of a person as described by the cards, and how their cards interacted with one another. It was like having the secret code to unlock the mysteries of relationships...and to a certain degree, life.
During the following year's summer trip (this time to Michigan), The Sensitive Advocate wondered aloud if there was some way this system could be made more accessible to the masses. She told The Tuned-In Realist (who immediately started planning the details). And then they told the tech-savvy Witty Navel-Gazer (who got the chills).
The three of them start kicking around the idea of starting a business. As the idea got legs, they began to realize they needed the expertise of The Unconventional Sage. When they called her up, she claimed, "I was just thinking of that exact same idea!" #itiskismet
And so, Kismet was born on January 8, 2016, which makes her The Fortunate Conjurer (6 ♠).
The Sensitive Advocate, The Tuned-In Realist, The Unconventional Sage, and The Witty Navel-Gazer hope you enjoy the site, find nuggets to help make sense of this beautiful life you’ve chosen to live, and continue to share the power of the Destiny Cards system with friends and family.
