Ever wondered why people exchange chocolate on romantic occasions? Like Valentines Day for example?

Long before Willie Wonka came around, it was known among the ancient Maya as the “food of the gods,” because chocolate, or cacao, can act as a powerful aphrodisiac that awakens the “love hormones” in the body, such as serotonin and dopamine.

It has the power to provide mental clarity, to move you from your head to your heart, and to produce a gentle euphoria.

In the jungle, certain shamans use cacao in its raw, unadulterated form for healing. But here in the modern world, this plant spirit—or the energy behind the form called cacao—is often overlooked as a sacred medicine.

But when used correctly, cacao unlocks your ability to explore your own personal and mystical journey from an enlightening new perspective.

Lately, I’ve been drinking a homemade cacao hot chocolate in the mornings instead of coffee, and wow…it unleashes such beautiful creative energies while also giving you a subtle morning boost.

More on the mysteries of cacao below, but first, I wanted to share my favorite sacred hot chocolate recipe. (Be careful of how much raw cacao you use – this stuff can be potent!
