Medicine of the Heart
Transformational Journeying with Cacao
Once upon a time, long long ago, deep in the jungles of Central America, cacao was being used as a ritualistic and indulgent beverage and revered as sacred for thousands of years by the ancient Olmec, Mayan and Aztec civilizations. There is a reason that cacao has been used medicinally and spiritually for almost 3000 years. I assure you that this seemingly small bean has more to it than meets the eye.
”An Indigenous myth tells us whenever the balance between humans and nature becomes threatened, cacao comes from the rain-forest to open people’s hearts and return the planet to harmony. ”
Cacao is a great source of four bliss chemicals – serotonin, tryptophan, tyrosine and phenylethylamine. These neurotransmitters create feelings of wellbeing, happiness, and can even alleviate depression.
This is why is known as the “love food” of “food of the Gods”. It’s essence connects you straight to your heart, to release you from the mind space and unwanted emotions and bring you into a feeling of easyness, sparking creativity and joy.
Ceremonial Cacao it’s not a psychedelic, but definitely a powerful heart medicine that allows emotions to flow and move for releasing, opening the heart, rebalancing our emotions and attunes the higher frequencies. Cacao acts as a multidimensional partner and facilitator for creative, spiritual, or ceremonial purposes…
When ingested in ceremony with intention the spirit of the plant becomes a powerful teacher and hand maiden to our journeys toward reconnecting and remembering I Being. One of the things that I love about this beautiful plant is that Cacao will bring the door but doesn’t push you through it, she will lovingly hold your hand during your own process.
Cacao ceremony gives us time to experience and open hearted state of being, assisting us on the journey to embody love and be human. It’s all about being, becoming embodied, remembering what is to be a human on earth, remembering how to listen and how to see.
I warmly invite you to sit with me in the circle and journey together into a place of deep cleansing and healing, an evening of Cacao, Sound Healing, Energy Transmission, Journeying, Calling the higher frequencies of our beings.
