Inspirational Positive Affirmation Cards
African Goddess Affirmation Cards are a timeless motivational tool. Oshun, Yemaya and Isis are goddesses of the African diaspora. You know Venus, Aphrodite and Athena. Now it’s time to tap into the gifts of Afrocentric female deities. Artistic representations of beautiful contemporary women with natural afro hair and shades of brown skin represent goddesses of love, abundance and beauty.
These feminine power archetype cards feature self-love lessons and positive affirmations from Love-Body-Spirit™ Coach Abiola Abrams, author of "The Sacred Bombshell Handbook of Self-Love." If you enjoy personal development, self-help books, affirmation cards or tarot cards, then these are for you. Use for intuitive guidance, daily empowerment goals, oracle readings, divination discovery or self-coaching.
"I am enough."
"I am worth loving."
"Life loves me."
