21 Day Cacao Challenge – Becoming a Cacao Tree (Day 21)


iSpeech

The intention for this journey was to alchemise stress and anxiety into peace and harmony.  Whilst this challenge has come to an end, the journey never ends.  Cacao is a wonderful facilitator and guide to transformation.

Today’s ritual is to become a Cacao Tree. We are all unique and we need our own perfect conditions to flourish, and we need to recognise the conditions in which we thrive, so that we can find our peace and harmony.

We were invited to get creative after we had consumed our Cacao.  Every part of the Cacao Tree represents a part of us and we were invited to journal against the following points:

  • The Roots represent Who You Are.
  • The Trunk represents your Sense of Self.
  • The Branches represent your Creativity.
  • The Leaves represent your Blessings.
  • The Cacao Superfruit represents your Emotional and Mental Wellbeing.

We can only grow strong if we are deeply root in Mother Earth, know that we are an intrinsic part of the web of life.

Rebekah, reminded us that trees take years to grow, which is a lovely reminder for us to be patient with our process. 


What a beautiful practice to end our 21-day Cacao journey together.

A tree has roots in the soil yet reaches the sky.  It tells us that in order to aspire we need to be grounded and that no matter how high we grow, it is from our roots that we draw sustenance.

21 Day Cacao Challenge – My thoughts so far… (Day 20)


Text to Speech Voices

As I said at the beginning of this journey, this challenge was soooo much more than just drinking Cacao.  Each day, taking time to slow down to and connect with myself ahead of the day’s agenda, has brought more harmony to my day. I have felt more deeply attuned to myself, more energetic and mentally alert.  Opening my heart to the wisdom of Cacao has been transformational, it felt like a nurturing grandmothers hug.

Opening the door to her transformational magic has not only had a softening affect in my daily life, but a physical impact as well… I have had more stamina to get through the day, I feel physically stronger, and more mentally alert.

By understanding her history as a powerful plant medicine, a spiritual gatekeeper and loving facilitator, who is making a resurgence after being undercover as a candy for 150 years, I can now truly appreciate what the Mesoamericans understood this plant medicine to be, even without our advanced ideas. 

I feel like I am blooming, and it’s a beautiful space to be in.

Transformation is a journey, without a final destination.

21 Day Cacao Challenge – Going with the Flow (Day 19)


Text to Speech Demo

It’s sad to say that I am nearing the end of this expansive journey with Cacao; however, it does not mean that the journey ends.  The journey never ends, the adventure of growth and following my heart continues.

What does it mean to go with the flow…?

Going with the flow is not a passive response to what is happening around us.  When we go with the flow it means that we act from a space of authenticity and that we honour our own personal rhythms as well as the rhythm of the natural world. 

I like how Rebekah describes this in her email:  An apple tree doesn’t cry in December because it can’t produce fruit, it automatically trusts nature and waits patiently for the right time.

Instead of push, push, pushing, we instinctively know when it’s time to slow down and have patience.

When we want something to happen in a specific way, by a certain time, we can find ourselves disappointed by these kinds of expectations are not met.  Life then becomes difficult resulting in stress and anxiety

I also think there is a bit of confusion about what going with the flow means, so for me there is:

Going with the flow and there is ‘Going with the FLOW’

When we go with the flow, we tend to make decisions to keep life comfortable and avoid conflict, by not rocking the boat.  This is often associated with conflict avoidance.

We may not be consciously aware that we are outwardly focussed on other people’s needs and expectations, or that we have lost touch with our own needs.  Which really means that we are probably flowing in someone else’s river or a few different rivers and allowing other people’s agendas to dictate our flow.

When we go with the flow, this really means we are not taking responsibility for our own lives or getting clear on what we want or need.  We are bystanders, because we have bought into the idea that we are meant to go with the flow.

Growing up in a Cult Organisation, I spent the better part of half my life dancing to someone else’s tune.  Like a little puppet dancing to everyone else’s expectation of me, resulting in people pleasing behaviours and supressed anger, the discord with in me was immense.  When I discovered a beat that resonated with my heart and started to dance to my own tune, it was so addictive, I wanted more.   This is when I hit the rapids of family upset and discontent.  It didn’t stop me following the call of my heart…

When you dance to the rhythm of your own beat…. Magic happens!

You read more about my story here

When we Go with the FLOW, we surrender to the ebb and flow of not only our personal cycles, but that of nature and we synchronise with the natural intelligence and FLOW of the universe.

We set our intentions and let life guide us to where we want to go. Going with the FLOW helps us to become intimately aware of who we are at our very core, enabling us to listen to our soul messages and honour what we hear.

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” 

Lao Tzu

Today's Ritual… This 21-day ritual challenge started in the knowledge that it takes 21 days to break a habit.  During this time, I have forged a deep and profound relationship with Cacao and let go of what no longer serves and a deeper habit of Going with the FLOW has formed.

The more that I lean into Going with the FLOW and trusting that the universe has my back and that everything happens in divine timing, brings me a feeling of contentment. 

When we begin to trust that life is unfolding as it should, we can relax and start to see miracles begin to happen.

As part of your daily spiritual practice begin asking: What is my heart’s desire? What inspired action arising from my soul am I meant to take today?

I also hear myself speaking about my passions with more confidence.  I can feel my own change of vibration, which has had a profound effect on me in the knowledge that I am an intrinsic part of the Universe.
