About This Goddess Initiation Journey

Want to know how I plan my spiritual Goddess retreats in accordance with the magic and mysticism of the moon? Let's talk about it...

Each chapter is a sanctuary where you will meet ancient goddesses and feminine energy ancestors, legendary queens, and mystical spirits. As you complete their powerful rituals, from altars to masks, you align with your divine frequency.

This is goddess rising.

Why African goddess magic? Well, why not African goddess magic? This is my spiritual inheritance that I was commanded to share with you.

You are not here by accident. 

African Goddess Initiation: Sacred Rituals for Self-Love, Prosperity and Joy

We learned about the Roman goddess Venus and the Greek goddess Aphrodite in elementary school, but have you met the Guinea-Bissau goddess Mama Djombo, Yoruba orisha Oshun, Ashanti abosom Ngame, Egyptian goddess Ma’at, or Haitian lwa Erzulie Dantor?

Our goddesses have ancient wisdom, healing magic, and transformational secrets to share.

African Goddess Initiation

There is no one African spiritual tradition. Africa is a continent of 54+ countries and her children are global.

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 Mississippi, goddess wisdom still empowers us.

Abiola Abrams

This is a divine feminine initiation and rebirth into your capital “S” Self. I am your midwife in this sacred rebirth; with our powerful goddesses, ancestors, and spirits leading the way through transformational rituals, practices, rites, and ceremonies for your elevation.

Everything we are seeking on the outside is on the inside. All of the things we want to manifest—happiness, love, well-being, money—are on the other side of self-love, self-acceptance, and awakening your divinity. This goddess initiation is a rebirth into your womanhood and divinity, on your own terms. This is about your personal relationship with the divine in you, as you.

African Goddess Initiation: Sacred Rituals for Self-Love, Prosperity and Joy

As you ascend the 9 AFRICAN GODDESS INITIATION 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.

Why African goddess magic?

Well, why not African goddess magic?

This is my spiritual inheritance that I was commanded to share with you. Again, you are not here by accident.

If you have ever felt like you are not playing full out, then this is your journey. If you “followed their rules” and you are still unhappy, this is your journey. If you ever doubt your own greatness or feel like an impostor in your own life, this is your journey. And if you are not living the life you imagined, then you are in the right place.
