CACAO SPEAKS THE LANGUAGE OF THE HEART

Honoring and celebrating cacao as a sacred drink is an ancient tradition, originating from the Mayans in Mesoamerica. 

In the Mayan Cosmovision, cacao plays a fundamental role:

opening pathways to the divine realms, allowing connection to elements and subtle forces.
As “food of the gods” cacao enjoyed high value and significance for thousands of years.
It was a sign of wealth, power, abundance and fertility.  
Honored in rituals, offered to the gods in ceremonies, feasts, burials and sacrifices. 
The pure cacao ceremony has been reintroduced in its contemporary and multicultural form not so long ago .
As this spirit plant is coming back to support the shift of humanity into the heart space.

Cacao is seen as the medicine of the heart and is truly one of the medicine foods that will support to elevate humanity

into the heart space. Cacao works on the subtle levels by energetically opening the heart center, allowing us to enter a state of love, bliss and euphoria. Cacao is honored as a gift from the gods. Its unique alchemy, its elevating transformative power helps us to shift down from the head into the heart. Opening our hearts towards ourselves and from that place to everything around us. Leading us from fear to love and from separation to connection.

Does ceremonial cacao get you “high”?

First, let’s clarify what you consider to be “high”.

If you’re thinking about the psychedelic-type of consciousness- altering “high”, then the answer is no. Ceremonial cacao in no way makes you feel “high” in the way a consciousness-altering

ingestible like psilocybin or cannabis does.

If you’re thinking about a strong-cup-of-coffee-type of altering
“high”, then the answer is yes. Like coffee, ceremonial cacao is a
stimulant that will alter your states of body and mind once ingested.

How does ceremonial cacao make you feel?

Unlike coffee, which contains a high-concentration of caffeine that stimulates the nervous system and

can give you an alert and jittery “buzz”, ceremonial cacao contains an abundance of theobromine
that stimulates the cardiovascular system and can give you the feeling of a warm and uplifting “hum”.

In low doses, it brings about an alert but comforting, less jittery body-state in comparison to coffee.

In high-doses (40g is considered a “ceremonial” or high dose), it can generate a warm and euphoric

body-state not dissimilar to the elation some people experience when feeling deeply connected

with life in a beautiful moment.

What makes ceremonial cacao “ceremonial”?

The heart-opening sensation that ceremonial cacao generates, and the production process the cacao bean goes through to generate it, are the main reasons why this particular type of cacao is labeled “ceremonial”.

Technically speaking, for a cacao-product to have “ceremonial” on its label it needs to be organic,

ethically-sourced, and minimally or traditionally processed pure cacao bean paste,

made from high-quality Criollo or Trinitario beans.

The reason for this is that the Criollo and Trinitario beans have the highest concentration of joy-enducing compounds (such as theobromine, serotonin, proanthocyanin, anandamine, and many others) out of all cacao bean strains. By processing the bean minimally through traditional means (you can learn more about that
