Let us take you on a journey with Heart opening Cacao and Soul Retrieval meditation and reclaim ourselves in heart space.
These are intense times: for the earth, ourselves, and our future. Many of us are recognizing the need for self-care and healing of our own wounds and trauma as we seek to impact and play a part in the world around us. Our collective need for something saner and deeper is shining a spotlight on some ancient healing traditions.
The concept of soul retrieval is that we all experience trauma during our lives, and when we do, a part of our beings or soul, may flee, fracture, or hide in an effort to protect itself. We call this ‘soul loss.’ The trauma might be obvious (an injury, assault, war, accident, the death of a loved one, divorce, physical or emotional abuse) or it may exist in a more subtle realm. Sometimes trauma can even extend back to the womb or infancy and may stem from not having our needs properly met. Depression, dysfunctional relationships, a sense of separation, an inability to move forward can all be hallmarks of soul loss.
Over and over again, people who feel stuck in talking about their problems have massive breakthroughs in their healing journeys after a soul retrieval. Quantum physics speaks to the principle of conservation of energy: that nothing is created or destroyed, and that everything simply takes a different form. Fractured ‘power’ or ‘soul’ does not disappear but rather takes a new form in the interim, always at the ready to return to its intact state.
Soul retrieval, a particularly powerful branch of shamanism, has been a tradition in indigenous cultures across the globe, stretching back to the dawn of humanity. It is finally being taken seriously as a powerful, viable means of healing… because it actually works. Enjoying ceremonial cacao can help you connect with your heart and be a gentle guide through transformational consciousness shifts.
CACAO ON A METAPHYSICAL LEVEL
Used for at least 5,000 thousand years by a number of communities around the world, on a metaphysical level cacao serves as a tool for connecting to the energetic space of your heart, as well as to people around you.
SPIRITUAL BENEFITS OF CACAO
I love making a cup of nourishing cacao before my meditation or during group gatherings. It’s a powerful tool to go deeper in your inner work, whether it’s journaling, visualization, or shamanic journeying. In my experience, cacao ceremony can also assist in energetic healing and receiving clarity in the areas of love, purpose, intuitive abilities, career and personal growth.
CACAO AND CREATIVITY
When I have an intentionally prepared cup of cacao at a ceremony, something happens: I feel softer, more present and loving, and my creativity goes through the roof. I find that having a cup of cacao is especially powerful before creative writing, working on projects that ignite your soul, and making art.
THE PLANT MEDICINE SPIRIT OF CACAO
Some traditions (including the indigenous cacao keepers) believe that every plant has a spirit. In the earlier days, humans lived in harmony with the natural world and saw plants as intelligent, alive beings and healers in their own light. On the simplest level, this is why we use supplements, herbs, superfoods and adaptogens – as a way to reconnect with this primal wisdom that’s becoming more and more readily available.
Once you’ve experienced a group cacao ceremony, it’s impossible to think that cacao doesn’t have a spirit. It shows up differently for everyone, but generally, it’s known as a playful, gentle medicine that connects you to your own deep-rooted wisdom within.
