In a lucid spiritual dream, Zenju Earthlyn Manuel, saw the vision of the Black Angel Cards, an oracle for healing and awakening in a dream. From there she dived into what she saw head first. She says, “I have affirmed my life many times with these cards and I am quite aware that there is an infinite number of ways, in which we inhabit the earth. I am stunned by what the ancients can deliver to us when we are still.”
In the tradition of indigenous healers, The Black Angel Cards are for seeing your true nature and experiencing peace.
While the cards were created with women of African descent at heart, over the years psychotherapists, life coaches, spiritual teachers and healers, diviners, seers, and ordinary people despite cultural backgrounds, have used the deck. You can use them for your personal exploration and invite family, friends, and co-workers to join you and explore the wisdom of the cards. The cards are a good way to enter into dialogues around sensitive issues and hold each other in the love we know ourselves to be.
Experience the Art
Experience the art opening your heart to different ways of seeing—expanding your view of life from different aspects of yourself. The words help to bring clarity, and thus gaining an understanding of suffered and how to ease or eliminate it.
Zenju uses the cards as a tool for divination. An invitation for a spiritual divination is more than a psychic reading to foretell the future. Experiencing a divination is a beautiful, empowering and healing manifestation of spirit. It is an opportunity to hear direction from the realm of the ancestors and to connect, more deeply, with what you know “in your bones.” Diviners bridge the gap between this world and the world of ancestors. In essence a dialogue with the spirit world.
Black is a Good Thing
The Black Angel Cards are here to re-frame the darkness felt in our healing. With the awareness they provide we can transform a negative view of darkness and see this sacred darkness as the unknown, unimagined, magically mysterious and the places inside of us that have been untouched by suffering. The cards provide light when transforming our despair into wellness.
