Our intention in the exploration of Amenti Oracle: Feather Heart Deck and Guidebook is to offer an alchemical journey of awareness, with the words in each passage evolving as you continue to evolve through time, the layers of wisdom can be further unlocked through direct experience and study.
“Read not to contradict and confute, nor to believe and take for granted, nor to find talk and discourse, but to weigh and consider. Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention.” – Francis Bacon, The Essays
While the Feather Heart guidebook offers words to help clarify the ideas presented, we highly encourage you to intuitively follow what the cards mean to you, and how they directly speak to your mind, body, and spirit.
As an oracle, opposed to the tarot, is more of a Rorschach for the subconscious mind, the symbols in the cards can take on subjective meaning and are malleable with your individual level of consciousness.
Below, we have listed a supplemental guide of 10 books that will help to stretch your consciousness, and allow you to further understand, and connect to the guidebook/cards, by offering greater insight (and perspective) into our inner and outer worlds.

“Tao Te Ching translates very roughly as ‘the way of integrity’. In its 81 verses it delivers a treatise on how to live in the world with goodness and integrity: an important kind of wisdom in a world where many people believe such a thing to be impossible. Taosim affirms that each human being is a reflection of the whole universe, a microcosm within the macrocosm, and that all of us live under the same cosmic laws of the Tao. The Taoist follows the path of non-action (Wu Wei), flowing with the constantly changing stream of life, and trying to live in universal harmony and balance.”
