I first came across this book at an angel seminar and then forgot all about it. This wasn't meant to be because the book kept crossing my path in many ways. After about nine months I then bought the book and have worked with it daily ever since. This book is really guided by the angels and they are there to help us in every aspect of our lives, we only need to say; "Please help me." An insight can be found to our deeper selves, often lying hidden within us and just crying to come out. I recommend this book to anyone wishing to communicate with the angels on a level so subtil but so genuine. Yes, a first class book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Angel Oracle Cards 2 Oct 2010
By Joy
Verified Purchase
These angel cards are smaller than most of the oracle cards on the market so they are easier to shuffle and handle. They also differ from mainstream cards because the beautiful colourful artwork is on the card cover (the opposite side of the message). The artwork is just beautiful but unfortunately I found some of the messages quite negative. As I do not work with cards with a negative content, I had to take a few of the cards out of the pack. A beginner might be put off by words such as 'evil' and 'devils'. Once I had discarded the 'negative' worded cards, I was left with quite a nice pack of cards.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful artwork 6 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase
I bought these cards for a friend because Sulamith Wolfgang's angel art is so beautiful and they are a very lovely set to own. They come without a book though and just a short reading on the back of the cards. This doesn't worry me and didn't worry her as we both prefer to read the cards intuitively but if you want some guidance to go with your cards, this set may not suit you. The pack is very small which is nice in one way as they are easy to carry around with you and much easier to hold than some of the more well known packs. However if you are used to the larger packs such as those from Doreen Virtue, it will seem a lot smaller to you....but the artwork is far superior and second to none....really mesmeric.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small but special 4 Mar 2013
By Heather
Verified Purchase
I was a little taken aback at the small size of the deck when they arrived, but have decided that this size is perfect for their intended use, which is to pick out a card each day for meditation and thoughtfulness. The pack is small enough to easily carry around with you in your bag, without them getting in the way or getting damaged. The artwork is as beautiful as I remembered the Sulamith Wulfing pictures to be, and I love the mood and atmosphere that each one creates. They evoke a very soothing, reassuring, comforting and loving presence. I'm very happy with my new deck!

5.0 out of 5 stars They worked for me in less than 2 minutes after opening them 19 Oct 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Since I'm bored and theres just one review (at this time) that sucks, I'm writing something. When I opened the box I was disappointed because I wanted a little book to explain things! Instead there was a card and printed on it is: "Place the cards in front of you, with the image up. Relax. Concentrate on your personal angel and allow your Higher Self to choose a card for you. Your angel is sending you a message. Let it touch your heart and ponder it throughout the day." The cards have beautiful paintings (I usually find art boring) and on the back of each one is a smaller black and white version with words under them. For example: Belief is not truly belief while doubt can still touch it. But do the cards work?! Hmm..when I was looking through them for the first time (So far I've only had them for 2 days) I was feeling VERY lonely (being lonely is about the only thing that makes me sad). Anyways, after looking for a few seconds I accidently dropped one of the cards somehow and on it said: "Solitude is bearable only with God." A coincidence?? Some say nothing is a coincidence when angels are around...whatever it was made me very happy. Decide for yourself. I certainly think they're worth $10. I just wish the cards were a little bigger (they're just a little bigger than "poker size" playing cards, but I'm probably just used to bigger tarot cards!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful paintings in handy compact format 1 Dec 2000
By F. Orion Pozo - Published on Amazon.com
This deck of cards consists of forty of Sulamith Wulfing's mystical/spiritual paintings. She has to be the greatest artist of this genre in the 20th Century. So it is wonderful to have a collection of her paintings in a handy format for carrying around. Many of the paintings have traditional images of angels with wings, but on sixteen of the cards the images are more generally spiritual than angelic. Yet the spiritual nature of her work allows almost all her paintings to be interpreted as angelic whether the spirits or beings have wings or not.
On the back of each card is a short statement chosen by the editor as a meditation to use with the card. Some of these are obviously taken from other sources. E.g., a card called Prosperity has the saying: "I cried because I didn't have shoes, until I met a man who didn't have feet." Some seem out of place. A card called Realization states: "The only thing a computer cannot do -- compared to a human being -- is to look into the evening sky." The painting is of two angels holding red candles without a computer or a machine in sight. Most of the texts are OK, but not being chosen by the artist, they are separate from the paintings and don't add anything.
At the end of the introductory essay in Fantastic Art, Sulamith wrote the following personal statement: "My drawings are a visual representation of my deepest feelings: pleasure, fear, sorrow, happiness, humor. And, to people attuned to my compositions, they may well be mirrors of their own experiences. It is because of this that I have left the explanation of the drawings completely to the viewer, so that they are not bound by my interpretation of what each picture should be. For me it is not a matter of creating illustrations to fit nursery rhyme themes. My ideas come to me from many sources, and in such harmony with my personal experiences that I can turn them into these fairy compositions. My Angels are my consolers, leaders, companions, guards."
These cards can do the same for you that Sulamith's Angels did for her. You will love these paintings.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice Artwork, But Doesn't Work Well As An Angelic Oracle 13 July 2005
By Janet Boyer - Published on Amazon.com
The art of Sulamith Wülfing (1901-1989) reveals a hidden mystical world that captures the beauty and spirituality of darkness and light, fairies and angels, and otherworldly spirits.

The Angel Oracle is a 40 card deck that features the whimsical paintings of Sulamith Wulfing. While the deck is supposed to help individuals understand the nature of angels and how they help with human problems, the sayings on the back are merely inspirational or motivational quotes culled from other sources. Also the deck references God as a "he" which may be unworkable for those who view the Divine as a she or genderless. Also, the sayings often mention devils or evil, which doesn't jive for those leaning towards non-dualistic, non-Christian spiritual paths.

Some quotes include:

"When the angels appear, the devils vanish."

"Life vibrates. It does not move."

"We learn that God is, that He is in me, and that all things are shadows of Him."

"On the spiritual life, all paths lead to the same place."

"The Angels of Death are full of grace and love."

"Belief in not truly belief while doubt can still touch it."

The sayings on the Angel Oracle cards are pretty shallow, so this deck isn't really suited as an oracle in my opinion. Also, there is no booklet that accompanies this deck.

If you love Wulfing's artwork--which is quite beautiful--you'll no doubt love this deck. Likewise if you connect with the concept of angels and spirit helpers. If you're looking for a good angel oracle, however, you're much better off with a deck like Doreen Virtue's Archangel Oracle Cards.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Angel Oracle by Sulamith Wulfing 15 July 2010

These little golden children and androgynes fit the Christian stereotype of what angels look like, and these cards all are pretty and soothing and beautiful, but predictable. The art is lovely though, and the wisdom is simple and innocent. My favorite card is Solitude. The back reads "Solitude is only possible with God." Maybe true. Not all the cards are about God, but they address every major influence in Life, on a humble level, like Nature and Fear. The blank wild card brings a soothing presence if queastions abound. Do you believe in angels? Many people think they are real. This oracular deck of cards would help any one decide if they get past the Christian stereotype.
