A few years ago, when I first met Mama Cacao, I instantly knew she wanted to touch the hearts of many, and I knew I had to be of service to the one heart that connects us. However, my connection to her felt deep, transcending time and space. There was a feeling of familiarity as if this life was not the first time we met. It wasn't until a year ago when I had a Quantum Healing Hypnosis session, that what I felt was a remembrance of when we first met. It was a time before the time when I sat in a sacred circle with Mama Cacao, Ix Cacao, and my sisters, and cacao flowed through our veins.
In the years following our reconnection, I have studied from potent masters who taught in devotion to Mama Cacao, the elements, the earth, and the people. I learned how to perfect the art of preparing cacao with reverence and love and understand the energetic subtleties between the different varietals and blends. However, Mama Cacao is my perfect teacher. She opened my heart and impacted my world forever.
What is Ceremonial Cacao? It is much more plant medicine than a candy bar. Ceremonial cacao is raw cacao often used in spiritual ceremonies for heart-opening properties. In short, it is minimally processed and retains all the natural minerals and antioxidants.
One of the main components of ceremonial cacao is theobromine, which is a mild stimulant that can enhance mood, increase focus and concentration, and promote feelings of euphoria.
However, after years of working with ceremonial cacao in the ceremony, personal, private, and group settings, I have witnessed the healing tears as people released and felt their heart chakra open. I have energetically held space as blockages gently dissolved to allow the love and connection to flow to and from. I have heard the words of wisdom and knowledge gained from the guidance of Mama Cacao. All of which leads to clarity, inner peace, and positive life shifts.
Here are five spiritual benefits of working with Mama Cacao:
It is an energetic heart opener and allows you to connect with your profound truth and feel the interconnection to the world around you.
Ceremonial Cacao helps you release emotional blockages stored in the body, allowing you to feel more open and more like yourself with a deep sense of self-awareness.
Raises your vibration, uplifting your mood and feeling into deep gratitude.
Helps feel more present and focused and, when used with meditation, can help you deepen your spiritual practice.
You may receive spiritual insights or connect to higher states of consciousness.
If you are curious about ceremonial cacao, Mama Cacao is calling out to you. Perhaps, she needs to tell you what your soul wants you to know.
Suppose you are ready to work with Ceremonial Cacao. It's essential to use ceremonial cacao responsibly and safely and seek guidance from a trusted spiritual practitioner before using it for spiritual purposes. Or feel free to reach out to me!
I facilitate Cacao Ceremonies in our ceremony space located in Walnut Creek, California. And because I am a Reiki Master, I also pair it with a Holy Fire® Reiki Healing Experience, allowing you to connect with your soul's desires and inner truth.
Regardless, when you enter Mama Cacao's sacred presence, come with an open mind, an open heart, and a willingness to explore your own experiences, allowing for what she shows you.
