Shaheen is a spiritual nomad who works with people all over the world to help them reclaim their power through intuitive guidance, energy work, and spiritual cleansing.
His latest creation, The Lunar Nomad Oracle set is a deck of 43 intuitive cards with intriguing layers of imagery, bound to unlock the user’s creativity and intuition.
When my deck arrived in the mail, I was like a kid leafing through each card in awe of the exquisite details underlying each image.
You are compelled to look deeper as almost simultaneously more is revealed from the card leaving you to feel the story it tells you – but let me start from the beginning.
The cards and guidebook are housed in a safe and sturdy box, so there’s no need to worry about them getting damaged and the matte finish definitely highlights the soft hues of colours.
The guidebook features a foreword written by Theresa Reed, The Tarot Lady, and is broken into three parts.
Part one – Glowing in the Dark, introduces you to your Lunar Self by helping you become aware of both the light and the shadows within.
Juxtaposition to your Lunar Self is your Solar Self which Shaheen eloquently describes as a ‘container that holds the fluid nature of the Lunar Self’, drawing a powerful equilibrium before providing a visualisation to experience for yourself.
I found the guidebook very comprehensive when explaining the meaning of each Oracle card which is in Part two.
The deck, as I began explaining earlier, has a smooth velvety feel. The images capture the essence of the Lunar Self journey along with the back of the cards depicting a vision of a full moon through a keyhole, making it feel dreamy.
The cards are geometrically striking, appealing to the eye and rich in creativity but unlike Tarot decks, these cards don’t follow suits.
You are more expected to formulate a reading from the images.
The wording of the meanings has a vibe that radiates loving and empowering guidance with subtle exercises to help entice the nomad in you to emerge.
When I shuffled the cards they easy slid in motion although it took a couple shuffles before I was used to the size. The cards are 15.0cm x 10.5cm.
The third section of the guidebook is entitled ‘How to become a Lunar Nomad’; mapping out your story as you travel along your unique path.
I really enjoyed putting these suggestions into play in the form of journaling.
A 3-card layout, as well as the more in-depth 9-card layout, is detailed along with daily forecast work.
Over the last few days I have been using the cards I deal myself as affirmations.
In the back of the guidebook as part of your journeying into unveiling your Lunar Self, Sheehan provides affirmations attached to some of the cards.
It was hard to choose a favourite card from the Oracle deck – the images are all so creatively intricate – but the first reading I did for myself, I drew Aura 37 and it’s beautiful image reveals many levels of my Lunar Self.
Do yourself a favour and get yourself this deck of cards it truly is inspiring and is the key to unlocking and understanding your Lunar Self.
I’ve always been passionate about storytelling and impressed by the influence it has on people and the decisions they make in life. I love engaging with the projects I work on, diving headfirst into the research, investigation, and production of stories and articles I feel are worth writing about.
