The three components of a cocoa ceremony

​A ceremony is not hocus-pocus and does not have to be tied to a belief or substance. The ceremony is not something that was invented at some point in time, but has been celebrated and used since the beginning of humanity to receive , transform and manifest .

From my own experience and research, I have identified three core components of the ceremony that can also work wonders in cacao ceremonies. I am only too happy to share these with you.

1. Intention - Inner alignment

This is the compass for the ritual. Just as a captain sets the course for a ship and sails across waves towards his destination, by deliberately choosing a personal intention, your own life can be steered into the paths that you consider to be right and important.

Cocoa serves as a transmitter of your desire by aligning you with your heart and creating an authentic connection between your mind and your innermost being, your purpose. Once your mind and heart are on the same wavelength, the world is your oyster. Manifestation is then only a matter of time.

So captain, where are you going?

2. Ritual - environment & implementation

Nobody can determine what a ritual should look like. Every person and every culture has its own needs and customs. This means that the ritual carried out can take on any shape and color. In my experience, rituals are most effective when they are permeated by acceptance and gratitude and thus give participants a feeling of security and community. A beautiful and comfortable environment is clearly an advantage. Expectations can be lovingly taken by the hand and led outside.

A cacao ceremony involves drinking cacao in an intentional manner. Point. Nothing more is certain. A cocoa ceremony therefore offers you a lot of scope to direct the energizing and inspiring effects of cocoa in the direction that feels right for you. Whether singing, dancing, speaking or meditating depends entirely on the hearts that gather around the cocoa.

What does an authentic cocoa ceremony look like for you? Where does this take place? Who do you invite? You decide...

3. Impact - Influence & Potential

By now you are probably familiar with the fact that cocoa has an effect. The fact that this effect can now be increased through intention and ritual is always astonishing to me.

My explanation for this is that the cocoa develops its effect to the extent that we give it space. And a cocoa ceremony is a clearly defined space that we only allow ourselves in combination with cocoa. Without expectations, we allow ourselves to experience the effect of this wonderful plant and let it do its work, so that we can then leave the ritual space feeling strengthened and inspired.

Where do you want to be more connected to yourself? Who would you like to deepen your connection with?

Where do you let your heart and Mama Cocoa lead you?

For Misch, the cocoa ceremony, along with other small and large rituals, is now one of my favorite activities. Whether alone or with friends - it gives me the opportunity to open up and actively trust that the goals I set for myself will find their way into my reality. Morning, noon, evening and sometimes even late at night.
