Reflection on these cold, wintery days can bring about feelings of needing warmth, grounding, and a call for the heart to release blockages. Cacao can be used as a vehicle to transport you deep into your own longing and as a co-creator, you can use it on your path to healing. You can use each experience to work on something different. Enjoy this recipe:

6 oz pure, still water

1/4 100% cacao

2 medjool dates

8 sprouted peeled almonds (can omit)

4 oz fresh almond milk

Bring water to a boil, once boiling lower temp to medium low and whisk in 1/4 c of cacao. Simmer while you blend almond milk, dates, and almonds. Add almond milk mixture to simmering cacao.

From the time you add the water to the pot, start chanting your mantra. If you don’t have one, you can use ‘OM’ or try an affirmation such as I am love, I am loving, I am loved. Once your cacao is ready, fill your mug, ring a bell, close your eyes and take a deep breath in. Thank Mother Nature for the cacao and many blessings in your life. Call to mind what is on your heart and let the worry pass, know that with each mindful, healing sip of your medicinal cacao you are bringing in potent energy for deep healing. Let everything else go.

You are Love. xx
