    This set helps you connect to yourself and the animal kindom, realizing that we truely are all connected. To the authors, excellent job combining tribel wisdom that is still so relevant in our time. Congratulations on a job well done!

    The set brings interesting and educational insight to both the animal and human worlds. It helps you realize how connected we all are and opens ones mind up to realize that we are not all that different.
    Being a city girl playing country girl, it helped me to know about animals. Sure I can tell the difference from a rabbit and a chipmuck from looking at them, but didn't realize how different the animals lives are. They live and survive in our world differently.
    It has inspired me to get on the computer and research different animals that are not listed in the book.
    It has helped in my personal growth. The cards I have chosen have given me a new way of looking at my personal path in life. I think deeper about who I am, how I relate to others, to the animal kingdom and to the whole earth.
    I have Cherokee ancestory so I was interested in learning about indian wisdom.
    I would highly recommend this set to everyone. Because of the spiritual and personal nature of this set,everyone should have their own. They should not be shared. I have already gotten my sister a set for her birthday. We are having fun learning and sharing with each other.

    Medicine Cards

    This is a lot of fun and informative. Great ice breaker in a crowd. I used these at a dinner party and everyone was so interested. Found that it opens people up and they talk about a lot of things that they would not ordinarily do.

    POWERFUL...

    These cards never cease to amaze me. I have used these cards in various combinations for 10+ years and have benefitted each time. I have also provided readings to a couple of my friends and it is just amazing how the cards selected randomly are all interrelated and expand on the same theme, BUT more importantly address exactly what we need. These cards are a gift in more ways than one.

    Amazing

    I've been working with these cards since I was about ten years old, and now that I'm a junior in college I find their insights just as useful now as I did then. These cards really have changed my life and have helped to guide me on my spiritual journey. If you're at all curious about spirit guides or totems, pick up these cards and this book!

    The cards don't lie....

    I recently purchased the medicine cards, through a recommendation by my aunt, who has been using them for some time. They are excellent, because you can ask about so many things. You can ask about how someone feels about you, where you may be going in life, and you can discover who your animal guardians are. I highly recommend it!
