Can cacao be used to activate and connect to different energy centers in our bodies? 

Cacao is known to be one of Earth’s gifts to the heart. When people learn about cacao, they learn that it is a heart opener and works directly with the energy center of their heart. The heart expands, barriers melt away, and people have easier access to the depths of their emotions and experiences. People can experience things like joy, bliss, and integration.

What happens though, when the cacao is infused with other herbs or spices? Or what happens when the cacao comes from different parts of the earth, is harvested by different communities, and people who have different ways of relating to the earth? 

Could it be that the cacao can then work with additional energy centers or chakras in the body along with the heart-opening and connection that occurs? 

In Part 1 of this post, we focus on our Enhanced Cacao, stay tuned for Part 2 in which we'll speak about our Pure Cacao and how they connect to the Chakras as well! 

The Seven Energy Centers or Chakras

The traditional chakra system focuses on the seven energy centers originating from the Hindu culture. We honor and understand that there is much to cover in regards to chakras and their original names as well as how they relate to each part of the body. For the purposes of this post, we are going to focus on a high-level overview of the most well known seven energy centers: 

  1. Root Chakra - located at the base of the spine; security and safety, feeling supported
  2. Sacral Chakra - located about 3 inches below the navel; pleasure, creativity, sensuality
  3. Solar Plexus Chakra - located near the diaphragm; willpower, personal identity, confidence
  4. Heart Chakra - located at the center of the chest; love, harmony, compassion 
  5. Throat Chakra - located at the center of the throat; expression, communication
  6. Third Eye Chakra - located in between the eyebrows; intuition, foresight, vision
  7. Crown Chakra - located at the top of the head; access to higher states of consciousness, getting in touch with divinity

How Our Enhanced Cacaos Work with The Chakras 

Tantric Rose: Connection and activation to the heart center (4) and sacral center (2), the center connected to the sexual organs. Tantric Rose’s ingredients lend themselves to bringing about a connection to sensuality, loving nature, and the ability to savor the experience of life and creativity. The Damiana and pink rose petals in the Tantric Rose connect to sensuality through their aphrodisiacal effects. 

Oaxacan Spice: Awakens the fire within and connects to the solar plexus center (3), the home of personal power. The element correlating to this energy center is fire and the organic spices ground into the cacao are all spices that stoke the fire within our bodies physically and energetically. All four spices in this blend, ginger, cayenne, cardamom, and cinnamon are circulatory and digestive aids boosting the functioning of the digestive organs. On an energetic level, this cacao awakens the fire within, elevating willpower, and calling into action for the greater good. 

Mystical Mushroom (FKA Medicinal Mushroom): Grounding and nurturing, connecting to our heart center (4) and our root energy center (1), our connection to the physical. With 11 powerful immune-boosting mushrooms, this cacao supports rooting and centering by connecting to the ancient heart of the earth. It has recently been found that the first mushrooms evolved on Earth between 715 and 810 million years ago, way before the first plants showed up here! By consciously tuning into the wisdom of our mushroom friends you can bring about support and nourishment to your physical body while opening your heart. 

Vibrant Vitality: Strengthening, supportive, and awakening by connecting to the root (1), sacral (2), and solar plexus (3) centers! The Ashwagandha in this enhanced blend can help create security and safety within as this important herb is known to help with anxiety, depression, exhaustion, and poor muscle tone, helping the root center (1) feel supported. The Maca can help rejuvenate reproductive health; it can even increase sexual desire for women and aid in hormonal balance for both sexes awakening and activating the sacral center (2). The turmeric and black pepper can bring aid and stimulation to the solar plexus center by improving digestive functions and even liver functions!
