Product Description


"Earthlyn has created nothing less than a miracle. With herbeautifully rendered and intuitively compelling "Black Angel Cards" she has given us a means to self-love and enlightenment." -- "Essence Magazine""A powerful tool for those who want to discover deeper truths and to move forward." -- "Evelyn C. White, editor, The Black Women's Health Book"

From the Back Cover

Drawing on the experience, beauty, and strength of African American women, 'Black Angel Cards' will strike a chord with women everywhere. Developed as a spiritual healing tool, each card is vibrantly illustrated and represents the diverse nature of black women, thus breaking through stereotypes and opening doors to self-realisation.

Are you the 'Builder' – do you tend to the weakness of others in order to strengthen? Or perhaps you are the 'Dancer', bringing forth creativity and imagination to the world. Maybe you are the 'Sister Friend', loving and sharing the pleasures of life with others. The cards and accompanying book serve as a way to access your own intuitive nature and guide you in developing a clearer understanding of your chosen path of spirituality and fulfilment

Eartlyn Marselean Manuel has worked for over twenty years as a corporate development officer in California and has been honoured for her work on behalf of women and African American community. She is currently pursuing a doctorate degree in the area of transformation and consciousness.

'Earthlyn has created nothing less than a miracle. With her beautifully rendered and intuitively compelling 'Black Angel Cards' she has given us a means to self-love and enlightenment.'

'A powerful tool for those who want to discover deeper truths and to move forward.'
EVELYN C. WHITE, editor, 'The Black Women's Health Book'

I have read and used this book once with a friend. I was amazed at the accuracy of the cards and how they reflected accurately my own personality and traits. The cards are big and take some getting used to and they are colourful and beautifully drawn. The interpretations accompanying each card are useful concise and easy to read.
For women of colour this is a must have, try it out on your friends and see if you don't bring out your hidden divining talents.

All Women-All Colors-Enter here! 14 Oct. 2000
By "caledoniaskye" - Published on
Format: Paperback
The wit and wisdom of Whoopi Goldgerg is here. The courage, grace and dignity of Maya Angelou is here. The vunerability and open guidance of personal conviction which Opra, shows us all, is here. Thank YOU, Earthlyn, for providing a simple but vibrant text for us all, Black, White, Hispanic,Native American, Asian, and any other combination of the above. We needed you. We need this. The vibrance of the cards key to the message from the text and remain a reassuring guide for our growth.
Earthlyn Manuel, whose name signifies the spice of life, has written a gift for all women. Over the centuries, especially here, in the U.S.A., Black women have had to fight for their dignity, strength and individuality, in a way that few can undrestand. The author does. And with great courage, tenderness and intrinsic conviction, presents the truth about us all. She writes for the Black woman who has maintained through it all. She writes of her srengths and her challenges, her foibles and her flaws. But most of all, she writes of the courage and love and power of the goddess in each of us. Black women are strong women. They could not have survived if they weren't. Many are my heros.

Great set of cards. 8 Mar. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have been into/learning about/studying/practicing different types of introspective divination through cards, and I must say that this deck is wonderful. The images are really bold, bright, and colorful, and simple enough to give a concrete idea while leaving room for further interpretation. Among my dozen or so decks of tarot and non-tarot cards of this nature is the Giant Rider Waite Deck. For those of you who know about the GRW deck, you might recall its immense size, but the Black Angel Cards are even larger. Honestly, they're about the size of a 5x8 inch index cards. They're lovely to hold, touch, see, and use to interpret your life.

By "" - Published on

This book along with the cards is such the gift from Creator. It is a reminder for me as a Black Woman of my soul and how to take care of it/ ME. I am very grateful to Earthlyn for being open to receiving this information and her willingness to then pass the information on to sisters like me. I share this book and cards with all in my life regardless of race or gender.
The love in this book is for everyone!

a true eye opener.... pure revival of the soul 16 July 1999
By edwina jackson - Published on
Format: Paperback
I loved this book... it was me, my friend, my mother and my sisters! This book helped to bring out of your soul what you probably already know and helps with suggestions on how to work on your faults. Different in that the cards accompany the book and they are interesting and beautiful to look at. I recommend this book to every sister looking for that "different" yet fulfilling book! Try it, Im sure you'll like it!

Belonging to Myself 17 Aug. 2001
By Marilyn McClain - Published on
Format: Paperback
It is wonderful to have a healing guide that is African American centered. The Black Angel Book and Cards provide tools to do deep soul searching and to rediscover our beauty, power and and magic. I like Earthlyn's use of the "waking" and "sleeping" paths. Be ready to look within and go to the deep river. It is a path to honest self-reflection. It is a path to unweaving the webs and coming to a place of unconditional self-love. I have laughed and cried. The cards are beautiful and inspiring. I have used them alone and shared the experience with friends.
