A sacred feminine initiation of self-love and soul care rituals, tools, and exercises.
Spiritual teacher, intuitive coach, and award-winning author, Abiola Abrams invites you to activate African goddess magic to transmute your fears and limiting beliefs, so that you can create more happiness, abundance, and self-acceptance.
Africa is a continent of 54+ countries, and her children are global. There is no one African spiritual tradition. Our ancestors who were trafficked in "The New World" hid the secrets of our orishas, abosom, lwas, álúsí, and god/desses behind saints, angels, and legendary characters. From South Africa to Egypt, Brazil to Haiti, Guyana to Louisiana, goddess wisdom still empowers us.
Writes Abiola, "Spirit told me, "We choose who shows up." And if you are holding this book, then this sacred medicine is meant for you. In this book, you will meet ancient goddesses and divine feminine energy ancestors, legendary queens, and mystical spirits. As you complete their powerful rituals, and ascend through their temples, you will:
. Awaken generational healing in the Temple of Ancestors;
. Manifest your miracles in the Temple of Conjurers;
. Release the struggle in the Temple of Warriors;
. Embrace your dark goddess self in the Temple of Shadows;
. Heal your primal wounds in the Temple of Lovers;
. Liberate your voice in the Temple of Griots;
. Open your third eye intuition in the Temple of Queens; and
. Surrender, meditate, and rise in the Temple of High Priestesses.
Welcome to your goddess circle!

Abiola Abrams is a powerful storyteller and historian. For anyone looking to explore Global African spiritual traditions laced with love, this is the text. Many of us have been forced to forget where we come from. African Goddess Initiation isn't just history; it contains rituals and ceremonies that tap into our collective DNA. Abiola's words are a soothing balm in turbulent times. This book is an offering, a gift from our ancestors, and they are felt on every page. A deep bow for Abrams as a channel, guide, and compassionate cheerleader. If African Goddess Initiation is in your hands, there is a reason. This book will permanently live on my nightstand when I need reminders, encouragement, or guidance. She's invited us all on this journey, solo or as a group.

One of the most important contemporary books on the transformational power of ritual, and the journey to awakening the Divine Feminine in ourselves, Abiola Abrams has generously gifted us with a profound body of work inviting us into the sacred spaces and rituals of her spiritual ancestry-the extraordinary rich world of African goddess magic and mysticism. This book is pure alchemical magic. If you're called to open its pages, it offers nothing less than a fierce, loving, and timely initiation to awaken the Goddess within. More importantly it fills a great gap in our collective soul as the author reclaims the mystical power of her ancestors and firmly restores it to its rightful place. African Goddess Initiation is a living map to an inclusive unified world where we all are valued.
