"When I sit with cacao (like I am right this moment) I find it incredibly easy to understand what it is my heart is trying to communicate."
This weekend is a time of reflection, simply put, the moon is reflecting the suns light onto the earth, onto us, and in a full moon we experience the highest amounts of reflected light that we will most likely ever bear witness to.
So what does that mean?
During this time of 'reflection', we are more able to see 'Our-Selves', even without looking we notice more of what is coming from within. Our whole lives, we listen to that inner guide, that inner 'Self', the Paramatma (translated: super-soul) to some degree, and if we're not living in accordance with what our innermost self is yearning for, we feel a sense of dissonance, of separation, of detachment.
The disconnect in our society is not necessarily an external phenomena, we all have something inside that is the same in all of us. That place of gut feeling, our intuition, spontaneous inspiration, etc… When we are not able to see our selves, to hear our selves, that is when it's time for reflection, time to look within.
Lucky for us, we have a giant rock to remind us of this every month…It's called the moon.
As a greater and greater amount of light is reflected back onto us, even with the sun's direct light fading, our animal bodies, our reptilian minds they know what that means, despite when our (sometimes overly) logical minds miss the message. It's time to look inward, to see what's going on inside of us, and then realign our decisions/ goals/ tasks/ plans/ jobs/ lives/ relationships to 'reflect' what is within.
How does Cacao play into all of this?
The spirit of Cacao and the physiological sensations that come with consuming sacred Cacao, is akin to a guide. A teacher to our Paramatma, the guide already within us. When I sit with cacao (like I am right this moment) I find it incredibly easy to understand what it is my heart is trying to communicate.
Have you ever felt like your intuition/ heart/ inner voice is screaming a million words a minute, but in a completely foreign language, impossible to discern what it is you really want?
Cacao is my translator.
Cacao is my teacher.
Cacao is my friend.
Join me this Saturday, under the full moon, with a steaming cup of Ceremonial Cacao, prepared for just this purpose and a grand fire to listen in to that teacher within you.
It's there, can you hear it?
