I wish you all a very joyous holiday season. As my way of celebrating, I offer you a 15% discount off of ALL Services at my site, Magickal-Musings.com.
My holiday sale runs from today through Jan. 30, 2017! This also applies to my visionary art for those of you who have been saving up. I won’t run this discount again until next Yule/Christmas time 🌲
🌲 TO ORDER:
Email me at IsisRaAnpu@gmail.com FIRST with what you’d like to order. I will send you a PayPal invoice that will reflect the 15% discount. The payment links at my site are NOT at the discount price because this offer is open ONLY to my followers.
🌲 All orders will be filled according to the following criteria:
~ ☃ Enchantments: spells are timed according to the proper lunar phase & best day of the week based upon your magical intentions
~ Tarot & Lenormand card readings are scheduled on a first-come/first-scheduled basis. Please keep in mind I always book up 2 weeks in advance for readings so if you do order one, there will be at least a 2-week wait no matter what time of year you order
~ Visionary Artwork: takes time, it’s all channeled so it comes through when it comes through. Usually, a piece takes me 6 – 8 weeks, but once in a while they can take longer so please be prepared for that possibility when ordering a Soul Portrait, Manifestation Mandala, & Spirit Guide Portrait.
NOTE: I do not have a page at my site for Spirit Guide Portraits. If you would like one, they are 9 x 12″ with the image itself measuring 7 X 10″. The price is $125USD + shipping, so your final cost will be $106.25 + shipping. These also tend to take me 6 – 8 weeks to complete.
I do have signed & activated copies of my Egyptian Lenormand available at the link above ready to ship & it will arrive in time for Christmas within the continental USA if ordered by Thursday, noon CDT, December 15th. Overseas shipping takes 10-21 days.
The Turtle Lenormand is in its second printing & currently has severely limited availability. Please email me at IsisRaAnpu@gmail.com if you’d like to order. It is $30, plus shipping. I ship worldwide.
Guidance & Inspiration From the Angelic Realm (GIFAR) is open for pre-order. Please visit my deck’s blog for the creation story of my first oracle deck as well as some sample readings. There is also an ordering page at the blog.
Since Schiffer Books published my Egyptian Lenormand card & book set I am now being asked these questions often on Facebook, Twitter, & email so thought I’d answer them all here in this post for everyone’s convenience. If you have a question & you don’t see the answer here, please email me at IsisRaAnpu@gmail.com.
Q: What’s this I hear about “activation” of your deck? Is that something I can do myself?
A: My Lenormand is different from any other in that the images were channeled directly from the Egyptian deities with Whom I have been working for the past 2 decades. They wished for “their” system to be used not just as a Lenormand deck, but also for healing and magic. They placed specific energies into each image, but those energies must be activated via a ceremony for which all instructions are included in the accompanying guidebook. YES, you CAN do this for yourself! Once activated the deck goes beyond fortunetelling & becomes a valuable tool for healing & magical work.
Q: Why didn’t the self-published edition come with the 2 extra Activation cards that the Schiffer edition has?
A: The gods had other plans at the time. Although they did share some of the information with me when I first created the deck, they did not explain the entire process to me. They told me the full explanation would come “later.” Of course they are all-knowing so they KNEW that a major publisher would pick up my deck. I was unaware of that at the time. Once I signed my contract with Schiffer the gods then provided me with all the information needed in order to activate the deck and how it is meant to be used for healing (there’s a specific method detailed in the accompanying guidebook).
Q: Can I get you to activate a copy for me?
A: Most definitely. I sell signed AND activated copies through my deck’s official website; however, I also recommend to all who purchase a copy that they also take their deck through the Activation Ceremony as it is explained in the accompanying guidebook. That will then succeed in placing your own unique energy into your personal copy of the deck. I have had quite a few people now report back to me that after they purchased from Amazon & elsewhere they began using the deck right away for readings & were amazed, but that after they took their copy through the Activation Ceremony the deck became even more useful to them as readings became more accurate and much easier for them to interpret. When I activate your deck for you I also give it a Reiki Master attunement as well, since I am a master teacher & able to pass attunements.
Q: Do you ship worldwide?
A: Yes, I do, via Priority in the continental USA (excluding Alaska & Hawaii) and via 1st Class Air to everywhere else (including Alaska & Hawaii). I have 2 payment links at the website, so just use the one appropriate for your area of the world.
Q: Why does a deck from you cost so much more than Amazon?
A: Firstly, Amazon will undercut everyone regardless because they buy titles in massive bulk. When you order in bulk direct from the publisher, as Amazon does, they are pretty much given wholesale prices. Amazon can then afford to sell items cheaper than anyone else. Secondly, a deck from me costs more ($40, plus shipping) because I take the time to perform the full Activation Ceremony for your copy & give your copy a Reiki attunement. That requires my time & energy which is included in the $40 price tag.
Q: Where can I purchase a copy of The Egyptian Lenormand?
A:The Egyptian Lenormand is available at most Amazon sites worldwide & at my publisher’s website, SchifferBooks.com. I have also seen it carried by BookDepository.com (they ship worldwide for free), Walmart, Target, BooksAMillion, and online at Barnes & Noble. You can also ask your local new age shop to carry it & the owners can order from New Leaf Book Distributors.
Q: Do you have any other decks for sale?
A: Yes, I do.
I have self-published “The Turtle Lenormand” & that is a deck that has at least one turtle on every card. I created it for myself initially simply because I adore turtles. It is a special Limited Edition that had a total one-time print-run of 50 copies. 28 copies remain available & each deck comes with a special Turtle Friend made by polymer clay artist, Susan Keen Krontz. My Turtle Lenormand is available at its official site:http://turtle-lenormand.com
Q: Are you working on any other decks?
A: Oh, yes I am! Several, in fact. All at once because that’s how us Geminis roll!
You can follow the progress of my first pictorial deck, which will also be my first oracle deck, at its own group on Facebook. This deck is called “The Aloha Spirit of Maui” and is based upon nearly 4,000 photographs I took myself on 3 separate vacations to Maui, Hawaii undertaken in 2009, 2011, & 2014. I plan to self-publish this deck sometime in early 2016 & it will consist of 44 cards. This deck also has its own blog that I plan to continue posting to now that I have other obligations taken care of & you can find it here.
If you’d like to keep up on a deck I’m creating of Spirit Guide Portraits you can do so at my other Facebook group: The Visionary Art of Nefer Khepri. I have no idea when this deck will be complete. All images are channeled from a wide variety of spirit guides so they come through when they come through & when there are orders to fill.
To order your own Spirit Guide Portrait, I am creating a NEW site, which is nearly complete. Portrait size is 9×12″ with the actual image being 8×11″ & they sell for $120 plus shipping. If anyone would like one sooner rather than later, let me know & I can send you a PayPal invoice as I have been accepting orders for a while now, but the site itself will be ready in the coming weeks. You can keep an eye on its development at http://contact-spirit-guides.com, but please note there are no payment links posted as of yet & I’m still working on the organization of the site.
I am also working on TWO tarot decks, one of which you can also keep up with in my Visionary Art group (link is above), but my other tarot deck is TOP SECRET. I have no projected completion dates as of yet for either of these projects, but for one deck I have 17 completed images already & for the other I have 14 images drawn & ready to paint.
Feel free to ask me questions & perhaps you will see your question included in a future blog post.
Upcoming post:weird energy appearing in anniversary photos. What could it be? Debunkers are welcome to comment because I really want an explanation.
My latest deck creation is The Turtle Lenormand. It is a traditional Lenormand, but has at least one turtle depicted on every card. Some turtles are realistically rendered while others are whimsical. The cards are all traditionally titled and work well with the traditional Lenormand interpretations. Directionality in reading the Clouds, Scythe and one version of The Book card have been maintained. I created The Turtle Lenormand simply because I have always loved turtles.
I had two turtles when I was little whom I assumed were a boy and a girl so I named them Mickey and Minnie. I’ve always really resonated with turtles and the neighborhood kids’ nickname for me was “Turtle.” I think it was seeing Gamera when I was 9 that really cinched my love of turtles.
If you have never seen a Gamera movie, treat yourself sometime. They are done in the same vein as the Godzilla movies (kaiju). Yes, they are cheesy and somewhat campy, but they’re so much fun. Gamera is a giant prehistoric turtle in hibernation under the arctic ice when he is awoken by atomic blasts. Thus begins a movie franchise that has culminated in 12 films with rumors of a 13th film in the works (please, please, please!).
What kid wouldn’t love a flying turtle (yes, Gamera is so awesome that he FLIES and he has jet rockets!!). In addition to flying, Gamera can breathe fire and he loves children. One of his official titles is “Friend of All Children.” He’s a good guy. No wonder I have always loved turtles!
My first Lenormand deck, The Egyptian Lenormand, combined my two great loves: the ancient Egyptian civilization (a love that began also when I was 9 ~ coincidence??) with the Lenormand system of cartomancy. I figured for my second foray into deck creation why not combine my love of Lenormand with my love of turtles? Plus, I wanted a deck of nothing but turtles for myself, just as I had wanted an Egyptian-themed Lenormand for myself.
Hence, The Turtle Lenormand was conceived. The images first took form as a bunch of badly scribbled sketch-ideas I drew late one night when I was suffering from insomnia, and now those ideas have taken final form into drawings and card images.
All images contained within The Turtle Lenormand are created on mixed media card stock. It’s a slightly heavier card stock than bristol smooth or bristol vellum and better allows for the blending of watercolor pencils without paper warp. I use a variety of artistic mediums ranging from polychromos pencils, watercolor pencils, Caran D’Ache watercolor crayons, to Copic Markers, acrylic paints, and fine line black Copic and Sakura drawing markers. I prefer to have a variety of artistic mediums at my disposal because each gives the piece a different look and feel.
The Turtle Lenormand is available for immediate shipping worldwide. It is is a Special Limited Edition consisting of ONLY a 50 copy print run. Once these are gone I have no plans to reprint. Currently, only 28 copies remain in stock.
The Turtle Lenormand is accompanied by additional cards (Dedication Card, Artist’s Bio Signature Card, and an extra version of The Rider, Clouds & Book). The Special Edition also comes with an extra turtle-ly surprise created specifically for my project by polymer clay artist, Susan Keen Krontz. The surprise is your own Turtle Friend that comes in its own pouch. There is one Turtle Friend per deck and no two are exactly alike. The deck is housed in its own pouch as well.
The Turtle Lenormand is an Art Deck. What that means is this: every image was created by hand. Drawn by hand, colored by hand, and then tweaked by hand. The only time a computer becomes involved in the process at all is in the final scanning of the images into my computer so I can then send the images off to the printer. Each image requires AT LEAST 10 hours of combined research and drawing time. The process of coloring each image ranges with the complexity of the image. For example, The Tree card took me about 10 hours to complete because it’s a pretty simple design; however, The Clover card, which is more complicated, took me several days that combined for a total of 43 hours.
In retrospect, as I think back to my childhood of watching the Saturday afternoon Creature Feature shows, and later while still growing up in the Chicagoland area, watching the Son of Svenghouli, I’d like to thank both of these shows for airing those old cheesy Japanese monster movies. We all are very familiar with the great Godzilla, but if it weren’t for the odd airing now & then I never would have heard of Gamera The Great. Any turtle who has rocket jets that allow him to fly through the air at great speed requires “The Great” as his epithet, wouldn’t you agree?
Thank you, Gamera. Without you this turtle and Lenormand mash-up never would have occurred.
I also have signed & activated copies of my Egyptian Lenormand (Schiffer Books, 2015 edition) available at http://egyptianlenormand.com. By “activated” that means I take your copy through the Activation Ceremony (which is fully explained in the accompanying guidebook) so that your deck arrives ready to be used not just for divination, but also for healing and magical manifestation, which makes my Egyptian Lenormand unique among Lenormand decks.
