Shamanic Oracle

Mystical Shaman Oracle Cards, by Alberto Villoldo (Author), Colette Baron-Reid (Author), Marcela Lobos (Contributor), 2018. Deluxe-packaged oracle deck based on the wisdom & beauty of the shamanic world.

Legends say that before there was time, before there was language, there were the sacred symbols. The Medicine Wheel, the Curse, the Eagle, the Jaguar, and others spoke to us intimately. In their countless manifestations, they offered hope, expressed caution, illuminated opportunity, inspired creation, courted power, and shared knowledge. The sacred symbols belong to the realm of archetypes and the collective unconscious, the spiritual common ground shared by peoples modern and ancient.

Details Of  The Journey, The Medicine Wheel & The Sacrifice Mystical Shaman Oracle Cards.

Now, three master teachers and healers –Alberto Villoldo, Colette Baron-Reid, and Marcela Lobos, have brought their wisdom and talents together to offer a doorway into the realm of the sacred symbols with the Mystical Shaman Oracle. When you consult the oracle, you summon power and insight that can help you understand the present, heal the past, and influence the course of your future.We can become our own prophets and visionaries. We can converse directly with Spirit, dialogue with the forces of nature, speak with the great archetypes, the ancient gods, without intermediaries. No one needs to stand between the Creator and you, or between you and the great powers of nature.

The Owl Mystical Shaman Oracle Card.

Every card is a dynamic snapshot of a situation or a moment, and shows you how the moment can transform from one condition to another. The symbols present the forces and influences at play and the direction that the energy is moving toward. After you meditate on the image and the power that it holds, consult the text in this guidebook. Each card has three important messages: The Essence. The Invitation. The Medicine.

Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D. has trained as a psychologist and medical anthropologist, and has practiced yoga for more than 25 years. He has traveled to the source of India’s holy rivers in the Himalayas to rediscover the wisdom of the Sadhu, India’s ancient shamans. Villoldo directs The Four Winds Society where he trains others in the practice of shamanic energy medicine. His best-selling books include: One Spirit Medicine; Shaman, Healer, Sage and Power Up Your Brain.
