Love Yourself is a delightful packet of 54 illustrated cards, each with an empowering and inspiring message directed towards girls and women who seek to love themselves more deeply and respect their own unique bodies and physical appearances, despite what society and the media tell them.
The cards feature illustrated images of girls and women celebrating themselves and their lives, their bodies, their abilities, and their hopes and dreams. Each card features a corresponding image on the front and back, and affirmations written in both the first and second person. Rainfield uses both “I” and “you” affirmations because she believes
“sometimes it’s more powerful to be told something positive, and sometimes it’s more powerful to tell ourselves.”
There are images of girl-as-superwoman stating “I allow myself to succeed,” and open-armed women rejoicing in their creativity, compassion and acceptance of their own gifts and talents. A chubby woman flies on a carpet, affirming “I get where I need to go at my own pace,” and a gal in a wheelchair sings out, “I have a place on this earth.” An Earth Mama stands rooted to the planet beneath her feet and states, “I tap into my wisdom and groundedness.” All are colorful, bold, boisterous, beautiful, witty, wise and whimsical in their portrayal of human individuality and diversity.
These heart-warming and spirit-lifting cards are the creation of Cheryl Rainfield and make a wonderful gift to oneself, or to a female family member or friend who could use more light and love in her life. Rainfield’s artwork is as bright and uplifting as her affirmations are, making this a special deck of cards that will be cherished, and used, for a long time.
Designed to be used when needed, or looked at every day for a positive spin on life, Love Yourself is a powerful, imaginative and compassionate tool for transformation that every woman can benefit from. Young girls, too, will treasure these cards, which celebrate the individual gift that each and every one of us is to ourselves, to those we love, and to the world.
