Cacao, Theobroma cacao, is an ancient sacred seed, it is rainbow medicine, medicine of the soul and medicine of peace.
The Cacao plant, Cacao spirit, is a medicinal plant, a teacher plant. It’s gentle yet powerful. It is a heart opener, a rainbow medicine – it connects people from all directions and nations, genders and attitudes.
With the Mayas and the Aztecs it was sacred and the name Theobroma cacao means “food of the gods”. It was used ceremonially and for healing, used as a medicine. When the spanish “conquistadores” arrived in America they called it dark almonds and later on, after understanding their value they called it “oro negro” (black gold) as Cacao was used as a way of current exchange.
It has a healing effect on the body, mind and spirit. It has an aphrodisiac, heart-opening effect, opens the mind and makes it alert, can cause joy and relaxation and brings a sense on Interbeing, deep sense of connection to all around us.
It contains the highest concentration of antioxidants & magnesium of any food on earth. It also contains many other helpful ingredients such as theobromine, zinc, copper, iron, VitC, omega 6 fatty acids, serotonin and many more.
Cacao carries within a powerful medicine that nourishes the soul and connects the human heart with the heartbeat of life itself. The Cacao Mother invites us to remember that we are part of the earth, of nature, the stars and the cosmos and that we only are in relationship with both the living and the spiritual world.
Working with the Cacao medicine allows us to UPload the power of all creation into our trillions cells, into our DNA.
