Sometimes the best way to discover the words of affirmation you most need is by getting introspective and asking! This deck of 52 cards is designed to start that inner dialogue. Simply pull a card, ask yourself the question it’s posing and start an important internal discussion. Questions like, “What would you do if you had the time?” or “In what kinds of things am I brilliant?” that will elicit unexpected answers you need to address for your personal growth. Those answers become affirmations, confidence boosters, a renewed sense of purpose and so much more. And using the questions as a journal-writing prompt is a great way to maximize the benefits these cards can bring into your life.
