History of Ceremonial Cacao
According to both archeologists and Mayan spiritual elders, the Cacao Spirit was one of the most powerful deities in ancient Mayan cosmology. The Mayans discovered the cacao tree and gave it a divine status. Cacao beans were very lightly roasted and ground, after which a bitter hot chocolate drink was prepared, using hot water, to which sometimes cayenne pepper, vanilla, cinnamon, cardamon and honey was added. It was used in religious ceremonies, buried in the tombs of high priests and used to worship Ek Chuah, the Mayan god of merchants and patron saint of cacao. The Aztecs later believed that the cacao drink served as a life elixir for the wealthy elite of priests and other dignitaries and gave them supernatural strength and performance ability and hence its importance grew.
In modern day, since cacao is said to have the ability to connect to your heart chakra, it contributes to every transformational shift you set your intention upon, whether it is to see through and let go of old patterns and traumas, or to a deeper understanding of yourself and your unique path of life. It is said that cacao has the potential to lift the veil of the seen world, giving you access to the world of the unseen. In modern day, Ceremonial Cacao in India is consumed by practitioners who teach Yoga, Mindfulness, Chakra, Metta, Vipassana, Guided, Transcendental, Concentrative meditation and sound healing. The raw & minimally processed version of cacao used for cacao ceremonies is called ceremonial cacao.
