CACAO CEREMONIES AND THEIR BENEFITS
Not only is cacao (or raw chocolate) a superfood with an abundance of health properties, it is a powerful medicinal and spiritual plant that has been used for centuries for her transformational properties.
It’s a powerful thing to take cacao alone or in a group, as part of ritual aid to support you on your journey of healing and spiritual evolution.
Cacao’s scientific name is Theobroma cacao meaning ‘food for the Gods’. It has been used in ceremony by the ancestors of Central America for centuries. Cacao ceremonies are once more becoming popular in holistic circles. A special ceremonial grade cacao is used which has not been adulterated in the way many cacao plants have these days for the chocolate industry. The ceremonial cacao retains the abundant health-giving and healing chemical properties of the plant, as well as its spirit/consciousness.
Cacao has the following benefits for your body and mind:
- 40 Times the Antioxidants of Blueberries. Raw Organic Cacao has over 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries.
- Highest Plant-Based Source of Iron.
- Full of Magnesium for a Healthy Heart & Brain.
- More Calcium than Cow’s Milk.
- A Natural Mood Elevator and Anti-Depressant.
And the spirit of cacao is said to be that of a transformation facilitator. And so whether you want to release something that is holding you back, process an old hurt, call in something new, begin a new project, or open to a new vision for your life, cacao can aid you in the shifts you are working towards.
In a cacao ceremony we draw on the spirit of cacao for support. Before drinking the cacao, we enter a meditative state of mind, and having already set a clear intention, we declare it and call upon the Spirit of the Cacao for help. We inhale the aroma of the cacao before drinking it and then savour each sip, allowing the cacao medicine to permeate through the body. The cacao has a very uplifting, whilst relaxing and soothing effect. It may be felt in your body right away, or it may take a little time. You may begin to feeling a buzzy sensation as more blood flows to your brain and heart, and the effects of the cacao begin to take their root in your being.
Cacao has the following subtle but powerful effects. It opens your heart, deepens your meditation, takes you into a very creative state, builds a sense of inner peace, boosts your energy, brings mental clarity and has a healing effect on your body and soul.
