On Saturday I went to a Shamanic Cacao Sound Journey. We all laid on yoga mats in a beautiful little studio, while Christian played Native American flute and the Didgeridoo right into each of our chakras (WHOA AMAZINGGG!!) and King sang and performed energy healing on us during the 3 hours. First we sat with the cacao plant medicine that King had prepared for us earlier, held the cup to our heart, connected with it and channelled our intentions into it and drank it slowly. As soon as we all started to meditate on the cacao, the rain came down on the tin roof outside – magical and well timed mother nature! Most people were having trouble drinking it as it was strong and unsweetened, but I drank it all and got another cup (because I don’t do anything by halves… Aries here!). She told us that it can make us feel very euphoric. I was looking forward to seeing where this would go. I had something I wanted help to let go of (fear of being vulnerable) so that became my intention for the night. I said to my friend that I felt like I had been out clubbing on drugs like the old days but without the negativity – like I was in a trance and quite high – euphoric even. I never wanted to leave, but sadly all good things must come to an end – cannot wait to go again! The next day I was very low on energy and felt like I needed to lay outside on the earth for a long time and just listen to grounding music. I got the message that I had unlocked an area of fear and in order to move forward I needed to sit with it gently and allow it to pass through with mindfulness. The only way to release and move through trapped emotions is to acknowledge them. I went for a walk but that was the most I could do physically that day. I did reiki on myself and rested a lot, then ended the day with a salt bath with essential oils and the next day I was brand new again.
Have you ever tried a Cacao Ceremony or Sound Journey? It rocked my world!
