CEREMONY

The Origins of Cacao Ceremonies
It is a known fact, that the ancient Maya drank a lot of chocolate.  In the ancient ceremonial use of cacao, the froth, or foam, was considered the divine substance of the drink. The cacao foam was seen as a cleaning substance, which helps physical-spiritual renewal, and embodies the concept of spiritual rebirth, renewal and purification. It was it’s most highly prized characteristic. The traditional technique for producing the froth (which is essential when drinking ceremonial cacao) was to stand high up, and pour the cacao from one recipient to another.  This can be seen depicted in countless number of ancient Mayan vessels, artifacts and texts. 

Chocolate’s precious foam was used symbolically as a purifying element, and as a protector of the spirits for the individuals who drank it.  We now have blenders, which is of course more convenient, and definitively less messy! 

Sacred, magical, cacao foam ~ ancient wisdom for modern times.

 Cacao (and chocolate) are still used today in ceremonies by the Maya—along with artisan licor, tobacco, corn drinks, and many other offerings.

How to do your own Cacao Ceremony

Cacao ceremonies are not so much of a mystery.  The secret to them, actually lies inside of you.  It’s all about embracing who you are, your own power…that comes directly from your heart, and has always been there.  So really, you don’t actually need a guide or a facilitator to do one, or to spend a lot of money on something that is free! 

You just need to trust your self and your own higher guidance and intuition.   
If you would like to sit with a like-minded group for your ceremony,  even better.  There is more capacity, resilience, innovation, and creativity in us collectively than alone.   With collective consciousness, our awareness gets multiplied, and fears are divided and dispelled. 

So either gather a group of your friends, or by yourself- blend or hand-whip your cacao to a frothy bliss, and set yourself and your space to be as comfortable as possible.  Arrange the area you will be sitting in with whatever you feel is right, crystals, candles, music, think about your intentions while setting up, then-clear your mind.  Give thanks and offer a bit of cacao to the earth first (if outdoors).   Take your first sip your sacred cacao, and FEEL THE MAGIC!  Connect with the universe that lives inside of you, connect with-  Heart Magic.

Shift, energize your spirit, evolve, shine !
