food of the gOds
Theobroma Cacao is chocolate in its purest form. A medicine and treasure known by the ancients as food of the Gods.
Cacao empowers and energises the body, calms and clears the mind, opens the heart & has the capacity to help us access healing & transformation through changing our brain chemistry & opening us to mystical experience. .
A delicious, deep and earthy drink of pure Mamas nectar.
In ancient times Cacao was used in ritual magic to evoke the power of the gOds & was worth more than gold to trade by the civilisations who knew her as an ally & a medicine.
They spoke of a prophecy that the spirit of cacao would weave her way all over the world in a time when earths children had forgotten themselves and were living in separation from their true essence, Love, in separation from each other, in war and hatred and from the Earth, destroying their Mother and home. The prophecies say she will make her way into every home and heart to awaken remembrance of divine truth.
I believe we are living that prophecy now as we birth the New Earth, Cacao has come to be our ally to awaken our hearts to our truth, to help us heal & walk in right relationship with self, each other & our Mother Earth.
Ceremonial cacao is the purest form of chocolate. It is the raw paste ground from fermented Theobroma Cacao beans which still contains cacao butter & all the nutritional value & medicinal benefits of the superfood plant. All of this is lost in the intense processing the raw form undergoes to produce the chocolate we know in the west.
Ceremonial cacao has also be handled with deep reverence and gratitude from bean to your cup. The people that grow this food, truly know her as a medicine and a gift to humanity. They sing to her and harvest her by the lunar cycles. They tend her with gentleness and affection. They still know & live in reciprocity & commune with the Earth & all her medicines. In this way I feel her to be the embodiment of abundance, the true state of the planet & our natural state of being, which is the respect for the creative potential of the universe. Helping us heal our scarcity mindset & move forwards into sharing economies of prosperity & peace.
I believe she has the capacity to help us open our hearts not only to our deep pain to transform it & help us live in more of our truth but also to open to our true natural gifts, embodied codes, sacred purpose & the why that inspires us to be in the outpouring of our creative passions. How we will be the hands & voices of the New Earth. She is expanding our telepathic capacity, the gift of the Aquarian age so that we my speak heart to heart as a global tribe of rainbow warriors rising in service to the Earth. Warrior of the open heart.
Working with ceremonial cacao regularly is soothing for our nervous system, healing for our bodies & psyches & illuminating for our spiritual journey & life path.
The cacao I source is from the Ashaninka Tribe of the Peruvian Andean rainforest. The active ingredient Theobromine is what creates the cacao high. The 'criollo' bean variety & the traditional method of processing, used by the Ashaninka people, where the beans are fermented rather than heated means the end product has a high cacao butter/fat content which lets the Theobromine act in a very slow, deep & grounded way in the body. Awakening an embodied, heart centred frequency of presence, sensuality & grounded connection to self & spirit.
The medicine soothes & regulates our nervous system, can boost our immunity, reduce inflammation & our risk of heart disease. She boosts our mood & clears our mind helping us drop into the peaceful temple of our being. Another active compound found in the medicine is Anandamide or the bliss molecule, Ananda meaning bliss in Sanskrit ~ the bliss that comes from ending the rebirth cycle & karma. I believe one of the transmissions of the spirit of cacao is is that we get to feel bliss in this body, through this body, in this life through this life. And we get to end cycles of karma & suffering through our devotional meditations, prayer, practices & healing.
I walk with the spirit of this medicine in deepest humility & gratitude that she has found her way into my heart in this life & awoken me to be a steward of her grace. I share her in spaces where I am activated in my own outpouring of codex & sacred purpose. In sound baths, song sharing circles, sacred healing touch, celtic plant spirit connection, womben's embodiment & healing circles & private 1-2-1 womb awakening journeys.
Through the contacts I have made with the Ashaninka tribe I source this medicine from a small co-op of traditional farmers that receive all of the profits of their work & sales + receive NGO support to sustain their small businesses in an ever growing cacao market. I donate 5% of all profits I make from sharing this medicine to the Survival International, an organisation amplifying the voices of indigenous peoples helping them preserve their ancestral lands & culture. I walk in deep alliance with Indigenous Peoples and offer what I can to physically support their ongoing resistance to colonisation.
I offer wholesale amounts & prices to practitioners, retreats & select stores. Providing quality ethically sourced produce with fast global shipping. Please contact me if you want to work with this exquisite medicine. I work intimately with my wholesale clients to meet your needs & share in a heart centred way with other soul focused, earth centred beings this medicine that is so close to my heart.
In love & devotion
