Cocoa Ceremonies

There are various types of ceremonies from different cultures and have been given since time immemorial. The intention of a ceremony is to help you connect with Spirit or also called your higher Self. You can see this process as purification for body and mind and a helping hand to experience more connection with yourself and the other. Sharing things allows you to recognize and acknowledge yourself in another. You gain so much more insight, which makes certain themes that play in your life much softer. In many countries, for example, they do not experience depression or burnout. This is because emotions and obstacles are filtered much faster because people come together and learn to carry each other. In our society we have started to live more as individuals and are now also seeing the effect of this.


During my ceremonies I prefer to use cocoa, because cocoa is already instinctively recognized by most people as soft and loving. Cocoa is a safe and healthy plant medicine that has been used for centuries by the Mayans to get answers from the heart. The Mayans also called Cacao the food Food for the Shift. Cocoa was not accessible to everyone. It was only drunk by the elite, kings and chieftains. Only they were chosen to gain access to the gate of wisdom. Due to the intentions of the ceremonies, the ingredients and the sacred soil in which the cocoa tree grows, you come into a theta frequency faster, so that you come into contact with your Higher Self ... or your spirit.

Ceremonial cocoa works on 3 layers: The head (thoughts & Inspiration,) the belly (place of the emotions)... and thirdly the heart that connects these layers to feel and integrate love, strength and unity. In a subtle way, the cocoa... sometimes continues to work in your life for days afterwards. You just have to be open to wanting to open your heart to all the beautiful things your heart can whisper to you. And if you are open to receiving beautiful insights and heart whispers very subtly, beautiful things will happen.  

Cocoa the Food for the of the Gods

Proven health-promoting properties of cocoa:

The main component of chocolate, cocoa, contains antibacterial components, so it has an anti-inflammatory effect.

The higher the concentration of cocoa, the more positive the impact on cognition, memory, mood, resistance and other beneficial effects.

Magnesium has a stress-reducing effect and can help you relax if you quickly become overstimulated. Magnesium is important for the transfer of stimuli to your brain. If you are easily overstimulated, magnesium can help you make the world look less overwhelming.
