Anubis Oracle : The Art of Awakening Shamanic Consciousness
The Anubis Oracle is a shamanic guide to inner Egypt, a place of mystery, ancestral wisdom, and abiding love that resides within each of us. It is a place where the neteru--the archetypal deities and elemental spirits from the Egyptian pantheon--lead us on our journey of transformation, a journey designed to open our hearts and teach us the inner workings of the soul. The full-color deck contains a Key Card, a card for each of the 22 deities and 4 elements, and 8 composite cards that portray several deities together. These composites represent 8 major portals of initiation and complex archetypal relationships. The accompanying book provides detailed interpretations for each card and instructions for 8 divinatory spreads that include entering into the mystery, achieving higher love and wisdom, and identifying our sacred purpose. By divining with the neteru, the shaman within awakens. This allows the neteru to reveal the answers we seek in our personal lives and in our interactions with the world by connecting us with the wisdom, guidance, and shamanic mysteries of Egypt that live within us.

DIVINATION / TAROT "The Anubis Oracle is a significant guide that shows you how to unlock your own inner esoteric knowledge, enabling you to connect with spirit. This is a critical tool for all students of divination--a significant exploration of the pre-tarot divination tradition." --Barbara Hand Clow, author of The Mayan Code "In this remarkable text and its accompanying deck, the authors and illustrator have given us keys that can unlock the mysteries of consciousness. They offer us a luminous understanding of the great archetypal principles that formed and informed ancient Egypt and that are part of the organizing patterns of the cosmos." --Jean Houston, author of The Passion of Isis and Osiris "A work rich in tarot resonances--cosmological, psychological, spiritual, emotional, and symbolic--focused directly on the sacred science of Egypt where tarot almost certainly has its roots. In a sense, The Anubis Oracle is more original than the original. An intriguing and convincing concept." --John Anthony West, author of Serpent in the Sky Box Contents: 35 full-color cards and 176-page guidebook with detailed card interpretations and 8 divinatory spreads The Anubis Oracle is a shamanic guide to Inner Egypt, a place of mystery, wisdom, and abiding love that resides within each of us.

Meditate upon these unveiled mysteries and benefit."--Leonard D. Orr, author of BREAKING THE DEATH HABIT: THE SCIENCE OF EVERLASTING LIFE "If you resonate as I do with the pantheon of the ancient Nile valley, then the beautifully rendered images of this innovative oracle will surely speak to you and avail you inner guidance and meaning from the archetypal world."--Jeremiah Abrams, coeditor of MEETING THE SHADOW: THE HIDDEN POWER OF THE DARK SIDE OF HUMAN NATURE "This oracle pack provides an excellent introduction to the timeless practice of self-initiation through the empowered image. The gemstone-colored emblems seem to be drawn directly from the dreamtime of the immortals. Meditation with the text accompanying the cards opens doorways to deep communication with the neteru, initiating the reader into a realm of higher awareness and spiritual vision."--Christine Payne-Towler, author of THE UNDERGROUND STREAM: ESOTERIC TAROT REVEALED "This book and its imagery is a gift to our limited ego. I applaud the authors for giving us a way to seek answers to our deeper questions."--Brenda Schaeffer, author of IS IT LOVE OR IS IT ADDICTION?

GREER'S 21 WAYS TO READ A TAROT CARD "A work rich in tarot resonances--cosmological, psychological, spiritual, emotional, and symbolic--focused directly on the sacred science of Egypt where tarot almost certainly has its roots.

An intriguing and convincing concept."--John Anthony West, author of Serpent in the Sky "Experiencing the archetypes of the alternate reality is a way to become a fully realized human being. The alternate reality is a parallel world filled with wise spirits, in this case the Egyptian neteru. They love us and long for us to seek their knowledge and are deeply involved in our lives whether we know it or not. The Anubis Oracle offers many easy and fun ways to play with the spirits so they can gently guide you to greater wisdom. The spreads created by the authors open uncanny doors into the alternate reality, the mysterious world of the neteru. This is a critical tool for all students of divination, a significant exploration of the pre-tarot divination tradition."--Barbara Hand Clow, author of THE MAYAN CODE: TIME ACCELERATION AND AWAKENING THE WORLD MIND "As a big fan of Nicki Scully's books on journeying with animal spirits, I eargerly embraced this deck, created with her clairvoyant colleague in shamanism, Linda Star Wolf, and artist Kris Walkherr. Its are has all the soft, open color and popular appeal we've come to expect from Walkherr, known especially for her Goddess Tarot. This is a lovable oracle."--Eva Yaa Asantewaa, reviewer "The Anubis Oracle is a visionary immersion into the experience of Egyptian wisdom and points us toward the living and timeless mysteries of Christ Consciousness. The reappearance of Anubis as the guide through the darkness of today's world is something we have all been waiting for and can help us return to our hearts, in peace."--Padma Aon Prakasha, author of THE CHRIST BLUEPRINT
