Tout est absolument fantastique : la qualité des cartes, imprimée sur du carton épais et dont la tranche est dorée, comme beaucoup d'oracles publiés chez Hay House, l'écriture de Colette Baron-Reid, les illustrations de Jena DellaGrottaglia ... Et en plus, le dos est réversible ! Je ne m'en étai pas rendue compte au premier coup d'oeil, mais c'est bel et bien le cas. Un gros plus, le jeu faisant appel aux sens endroits (Ally) et envers (Challenger), avec d'ailleurs une vision très saine des aspects Challenger de chaque carte.
Ce que j'aime particulièrement, c'est que l'auteur fait appel à des archétypes universels. Nous ne nous trouvons pas dans un système de mythes et de légendes précis, mais, au contraire, dans un ensemble qui peut parler à tout le monde. Même si certaines illustrations évoquent plus ou moins certaines cultures (par exemple, le High Lord of Gratitude et la culture bouddhiste), il n'empêche : les symboles, puisés un peu partout, permettent vraiment de comprendre le sens de la carte, du moins à mes yeux. Les illustrations tournent, la plupart du temps, autour d'une figure humaine entourée de plus ou moins de symbole, et qui sont accompagnées de mots-clés en haut de la carte. J'ai constaté avec une agréable surprise que oui, les illustrations et les mots-clés permettent souvent, croisés entre eux, d'enrichir l'interprétation, parce que dans certains oracles, je n'ai pas du tout cette impression.Lire la suite ›
Il est magnifique,comme dit dans le 1er commentaire ,de très belle qualité,les images superbes,très explicite et très juste!Un vrai plaisir de tirer les cartes avec.C'est surtout un oracle pour avancer et savoir ou on en est,pas pour dire l'avenir mais nous montrer ce qu'on ne voit pas toujours et nous aider à y voir plus clair dans notre vie.j'adore!
Je ne sais pas si la dorure des tranches va tenir longtemps mais sinon c'est parfait!Je suis ravie!

Colette's Wisdom of the Hidden Realms is an innovative and beautiful set of cards supported by a very practical guidebook. I have seen a lot of decks, but this one is really unique. Colette has gifted us with a set of archetypes and spiritual helpers that are nothing like anything I've ever seen. Each of the 44 (Master Number) cards can be seen as an Ally or Challenger depending on their direction.
The imagery is nothing short of magical. Using graphically enhanced photography, the illustrator, Jena DellaGrottaglia has brought to life these helpers using imagery and themes from a variety of mystical lands. I find myself looking at the cards again and again as I often see something I missed the first time. There really is something for everyone in these cards.
Last, and certainly not least, I want to comment on Colette's philosophy regarding these cards. She states in the guidebook: "It's also important to note that these oracle cards weren't designed to predict the future. Rather, they are meant to offer you the wisdom you need to create the best life now, which evolves into the most meaningful and productive future. These cards also invite you to go deeper into the question, and the motives behind asking it, as the Wisdom of the Hidden Realms is revealed." This is why I love Colette and her teachings so much. These cards are here to help you make the best choice right now for your highest good.
Designed to reconnect seekers with innate perceptions and higher understanding, the Wisdom of the Hidden Realms Oracle Cards features gilt edging and gorgeous imagery by artist Jena DellaGrottaglia (Duirwaigh).
Depicting magical archways into fanciful, otherworldly places, these cards cover themes from compassion to abundance, creativity to partnerships, and angelic help to synchronicity.
Imparted through dreams at Sedona to psychic Colette Baron-Reid, the Wisdom of the Hidden Realms Oracle Cards convey powerful symbols and themes that speak to universal issues, concerns, hopes and challenges. Rather than predicting the future, these cards are geared towards unraveling persistent patterns that hinder our personal growth and highest expression of Being, as well as illuminating truths that may be buried, overlooked or ignored.
Some of the card titles may seem cheesy to some, but the Wisdom of the Hidden Realms Oracle Cards present an imaginative source for counsel, comfort and insight. Some of the cards in this deck include:
* The Chess Queen - trust, strategizing
* The Resting Tree - patience, stillness
* The Ringmaster of Destiny - discernment, clear vision, details
* The Lady of Lightning - surprises, sometimes shock; total paradigm shift
* The Keeper of the Scales - fairness, balance
* The Sacred Union - partnership, romance
* The Hungry Ghosts - obsession, scarcity consciousness, attachment
* The Sun Dancers - joyful activity, celebration of life, abundance
The 123-page companion booklet provides small grayscale reproductions of each numbered card, as well as the card title, keywords, and number (which are also show on the imagery). In addition, Baron-Reid explains how the energy of each card can present itself as an Ally or a Challenger, depending whether the card is drawn upright or reversed.
Baron-Reid also shows seekers how to do a reading and provides three sample readings, as well as tips on asking fruitful questions.
I've had the Wisdom of the Hidden Realms Oracle Cards on my Amazon.com Wishlist for some time, but when I saw them in person at a brick-and-mortar store, I felt compelled to buy them. I'm very glad I did; this deck is one of the most innovative, pointed, and attractive decks I've every worked with.
Colette Baron-Reid's spiritual discernment goes way beyond the shallow platitudes sometimes found in pretty oracle decks, with the companion booklet brimming with probing (yet gentle) observations and practical advice encouraging seekers to reach for their highest personal good and overall wellbeing.
I've found the Wisdom of the Hidden Realms Oracle Decks to be an accurate form of divination. A side benefit is that it's imagery and card titles are wonderful for brainstorming and idea generation for writers and artists, too.

The cards themselves have a lot of charm and fiery passion within the decks art work. The main illustrator of the art work done is by Jena DellaGrottaglia she can be found at [...] They are breathtakingly beautiful and nice to read with the guide book is elegantly written and the cards Images draw you into deeper into introspection of yourself and higher calling. I like that the challengers and ally meanings of the cards. As challengers they make you stop and go within asking you questions for more thought and as ally's you know who are helping you out in any given situation. These cards are very positive they have a great prescience and energy of light around each cards images even around the image of the gate way on the back of each card. The feel of the cards are lite,airy, magical and impressive down to the tiniest of details.A lot of thought went into making these cards even down to the gold edging and the Celtic triqutra symbol below each number. Furthermore, each card is a work of mythical art,wisdom and beauty they read like a book opening a portal to another realm, your inner realm of own divine mystery, magic and beauty.Each time I hold the cards in my hands it is an awaking to my own divine self and allowing access to communicate with the hidden realms of your higher calling. Listen to your own divine voice and allow the images to guide you on your journey within reflecting back to you with a nonjudgmental vision and voice. Enjoy these beautiful empowering and thoughtful cards... They are a treasure and I am honored to have them in my collection.-- Kathleen
The art here leans towards the shadow and the surreal. This is not a 'love and light' deck. Nor is it a heavy pictorial symbolism deck. The pictures are meant to show more the snap-shot of the idiom/archetype represented than any specific image in the life or situation of the person being read for. This can be frustrating to those used to more traditional tarot decks. The images are beautiful however and well done.
~*~The Guide Book~*~
The guide book provides a lot of information about what each character represents. It is important to keep in mind that these cards are 'people' or archetypes with stories behind them. It's kind of like each card is referencing a figure in a well known story and making a metaphor. This takes a little mental adjustment if you're used to traditional tarot. The guide book does not tell the stories behind the characters, only their essential qualities. So this further leaves room for complication and confusion.
Personally, I have found these useless for readings. They give me very little specific information about what it going on in the past or present. The future is equally unclear and suggests far too many possible emotional and mental themes.
Example: "What is coming up in my love life?" Well... you had some kind of deciet, or maybe and older man in your past (Word Lord) and in your present you have been realizing and learning the truth about that (Lady of Light), and in the future you will be very honest with yourself (Well Watcher). Huh?
I do like these cards for questions that explore issues of manifestation, emotion, and spiritual growth however.
Example: What is blocking me from manifesting my ideal relationship? You are holding on to things from the past and using them to judge the future (The Hungry Ghosts). You need to instead look at things very compassionately and try to understand why people do what they do, not just how it effects you. (High lady of compassion)
I have a lot of tarot decks and it seems there are some cards that have similar energy (like 3 of swords, 9 of swords and 5 of cups) I find that this oracle deck with it's 44 instead of 78 cards helps to get to the issue faster and I dont have to draw so many cards.
The little book is good too, tho it seems that some of the challenger (reversed) meanings are not so clear. But, my opinion of this may change with more use over time. I felt Colleen's down to earth vibe throughout the explanation of the cards, it felt more casual rather than scholarly- and I like that.
The art is good, but more on the goth side. There's a lot of unused areas and space for the written title of the card that I think should have been used to create a larger visual image. I like the artwork of the wisdom of avalon better. But in this deck, there's a lot more detail and things going on in the images- if only they were bigger and just a little brighter!
The cards are sturdy and almost large, a person with really small hands might struggle with shuffling. I was surprised by the gold gilding; something none of my other decks have. It makes me want to be more careful with them and if not, the under 15 price wont break the bank if I get new ones when the gold wears off.
Overall, I am looking forward to developing a life-long friendship with this deck. I will check back if I have any further insights or to compare to her wisdom of avalon deck should I get that one too.
