Format: Hardcover
I have owned this book and these cards for years. They are much easier to use than Tarot cards and the accompanying book teaches the reader about First Nations spiritual beliefs. Other people will beg you to do their reading - and if you can read you can easily do it.

HASH(0xa0fa1d68) out of 5 stars A pivotal deck for those who love animals. Aug. 6 2000
By seeker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have so enjoyed this deck over the years. When I first recieved it, following the easy directions for use, I was able to determine my entire totom (all the animals that influence me). I found it to be amazingly accurate. The system allows the user to understand the symbolic meaning of the animals which appear to us, in dreams, in person, or I even count the ones on TV. Thier messages are always timely and useful. The cards are lovely, the book is complete, easy to use, with just wonderful stories that make it very easy to remember and use the system quickly. I love it. Thanks to the creators.

HASH(0xa0fa1dbc) out of 5 stars Medicine Cards: Discovery of Power through the Ways of Anima Jan. 8 2002
By Athena - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I love this set, I kept my cards a secret to myself for the first few weeks I had them, but the identification of the reading and the situtaion I was questioning was eerie - so I asked various people who visited if they would not mind having a "Go" with the cards, well now my friends, family and acquaintences beleive I am a Shaman Sacred Card reader, this may be so but I believe it is the book and card set that are the true hero, as long as the person giving the reading has respect for the essense of the set the truth will Out. A teriffic gift to give someone interested in the subject of Native American Wisdom, it is so much fun to see a friends face change into the "Oh my god how did you know that" look. All readings are positive (I don't mean polite I mean give positive guidance for good news or bad) but one would have to be dim not to understand the significance of every card reading. If I can make sense of the set anybody can - The cards are Beautiful and the book print size is big enough for my bad eyesight, for late night reading with a bedside lamp.

HASH(0xa0fa2210) out of 5 stars Powerful, Beautiful Cards and Book Sept. 24 2006
By Brook Wellington - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
All of my friends who own this deck agree that the Medicine Cards are powerful and accurate. The stories are beautiful tales -- not overly descriptive and bogged down with tedious facts like a text book. They're spiritual stories that open up the reader to the universe and everything in God's creation through animals.

Native Americans found their source and power through their deep connection with the land and animals of this continent; and Jamie Sams and David Carson have done an excellent job of sharing some of these stories with us.

For those who are "open" spiritually, you should find the readings very accurate. Whether you're a devoutly spiritual Christian, a Buddhist, or simply a spiritual being -- these cards can teach you about the world of the original North Americans.

HASH(0xa0fa25d0) out of 5 stars Animal Medicine at its best! March 28 2015
By Dana Tobey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
These cards are so powerful. I have worked with them before receiving readings from others, but I've never had my own deck. I have such a deep connection to animals I figured it was about time I get these for myself. They are beautiful, and you can feel the love, heart, and soul that was put into them. I picked my totem animals the same night I received them and felt so inspired. If these appeal to you in anyway, I recommend you follow your intuition and get them. They will not disappoint. A must have for any earth lover who has a spiritual bond with animals.

HASH(0xa0fa257c) out of 5 stars Simply extraordinary Sept. 21 2000
By Sandi Tinker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I've been using these cards for years with remarkable results. After trying Tarot, I Ching, and other divinatory practices, I always come back to the Medicine Cards. I'm always astounded by how profound and accurate the readings are. The animals always reveal to me what I'm ignoring or neglecting or give me added insight into situations. The thoughts expressed in the explanations (meanings) of the animals are beautiful and spiritually uplifting. The cards themselves are also beautiful. My whole experience with the cards and the text has been wonderful. I highly recommend them as an adjunct to any spiritual path, especially those that seek greater harmony with nature.
