Today was a day for reflection on how I was feeling compared to when I started the challenge.
Rebekah Shaman mentioned in her email that if we are feeling a bit wobbly and emotional with lots of things coming up, then this is a GOOD SIGN that the challenge is working.
Today, I was definitely feeling wobbly. Everything frustrated me and I felt energetically stuck. Over the last few days, I have become more conscious of stuck emotions and old behaviour patterns. Today, I let myself check-in fully and feel the feels. I then began the process of going deeper and asking myself what is the root cause of these emotions. I recognised that one of the behaviours was a repetitive behaviour, of feeling frustrated due to lack of action and movement in specific areas of my life. This frustration stems from being restricted and controlled as a child and the current world wide pandemic situation is causing me A LOT of frustration (as I am sure it is causing many my readers!)
I have an opportunity to grow from this experience and I recognise that this situation is not within my span of influence and that this will be the case for the foreseeable future. By channelling my frustration into growth and re-routing myself down a different path for now, will stand me in good stead for the future as I use this time to sharpen and hone my skills.
It is only when we allow ourselves to truly feel, that we can let go. Releasing what no longer serves us makes space for more love and light to come in, leading to a happier and more fulfilling life.
Cacao is the perfect plant medicine to facilitate healing those wounds of the heart that we are unable to reach.
Cacao softens us and gently opens the heart space, which is the gateway to our inner wisdom and once this portal is open, profound changes occur. Cacao facilitates a deeper connection to ourselves and assists us in exploring what needs to be released lovingly.
My personal journey with working with this Master Plant Medicine has helped me to recognise and begin integrating my shadow aspect, enabling me to transform fear, anger and sadness into pure love.
Cacao is not only packed with nutritional goodness, but emotional and spiritual goodness too. Cacao naturally reduces our stress and anxiety, which I have personally witnessed within myself during the course of this challenge. This powerful plant medicine, not only grounds us, but brings us into a more relaxed and blissful state, that we can only reap the benefits from.
Today’s Ritual was to bring attention into the heart space, whilst drinking our Cacao, and ask the spirit of Cacao for healing and using this opportunity to deepen our relationship with this loving plant medicine, to heal any aspect of our life that that needs to be healed.
After this mornings ritual, I was randomly searching for a podcast on Cacao and came accross The Cacao Codes, by Kyle Lazich, the Chocolate Wizard, so tuned into the wisdom he shares on his channel. Another great font of all things chocolatey is Keith Cacao aka the Chcolate Shaman. Do check them out!
