WHO LOVES CHOCOLATE??
Or perhaps more fitting - who doesn’t?
Guess what - chocolate happens to love us, too.
IXCacao is known as the Spirit of the Cacao Tree, a Goddess of the Earth.
The different between Cacao and Cocoa/Chocolate: Cacao is raw, closer to source and without all the processing (i.e. adding lots of extra and perhaps unnecessary stuff).
As a vasodilator, she opens up vessels in the body and allows easy blood flow from the heart. As a nootropic, she enhances memory function. Mood boosting, pleasure enhancing - she has been known throughout the centuries as a treasure of love.
CACAO RECIPE BASICS:
♥ Make with love, always!
♥ Sing a little song/say a little prayer to her spirit whilst chopping and preparing mix
♥ Melt slowly in the pan and add water gradually, or boil sufficient water then pour on in
♥ Add ingredients to your liking. Vanilla/cinnamon/ginger blend in with her flavour a treat! (To give you an idea, I like to add a pinch of salt, cinnamon, ginger, chilli and some honey ~ you can change this up depending on how soothing/stimulating you’d like the concoction to be)
♥ Explore your own connection to the medicine and delve into what heart magic you can create!
♥ Hold your cup in your palms, in front of your heart
♥ Close your eyes and melt into the warmth
♥ Take a deep breath and let out a sigh…
♥ Bring the cup to your nose and inhale her gentle aroma. Take your time breathing in and appreciating her essence.
♥ After a moment, think of what guidance, wisdom or energy you would like to invite in. Whisper your intention or blow into your cup.
♥ Raise the cup to your third eye, thanking her for her presence and blessings
♥ Enjoy as you wish!
♥ Allow the energy to move through you as the unique expression of your combined spirits!
♥ Engaging with Cacao before an Asana flow, quite literally. changes my life.
With love, Cacao Coco ♥
