What do we mean when we say cacao is very “energetically absorbent?”

Simply, cacao picks up and holds onto energy from its environment.

The environment includes the invisible world, such as your energy and intentions. 

And it also includes everything in the physical world—from farm to cup.

All of this makes an impact on the quality of your cacao.

Today, we will teach you how to tap into both the physical and invisible energies for the upcoming Full Moon in Aquarius on Sunday, August 22nd.

This ritual practice is called “charging” your cacao.

By using cacao as a vehicle for cosmic energy, you can turn your body and your life into a vehicle for cosmic energy too!

P.S. - We'll share which cacao we LOVE for Full Moon rituals!

Activate Your Inner Shaman

First, it’s important to understand how ancient cultures used cacao beans—for example, to absorb negative energy from people who were suffering or in need of healing. 

While people laid on their backs, shamans would scan their energetic fields.

Then, the shaman would place cacao beans on their areas of incoherence or imbalances, such as chakras or organs, so as to pull the negative energy out of the body. 

Once the cacao had successfully absorbed the energy and the person was purified, the shaman would place the cacao beans in the river where they would wash away. 

Similarly, but with a different intention, you can use your cacao to absorb positive energy (or any energy for that matter!).

In this case, we will use our cacao to absorb the cosmic energy of this Full Moon.

Charge Your Cacao


  1. The night before the Full Moon, get a mason jar or any other sealed container (glass is best!). You may also start charging your cacao in the full week leading up to the Full Moon.
     
  2. One by one, set an intention for your Full Moon cacao ritual and place one disc into the jar. Repeat until you have set all of your intentions. 
     
  3. Place your cacao jar outside and “charge” your cacao under the lunar energy. You may also charge a large batch of cacao in the Full Moon energy, then store it inside and drink it for various rituals over the coming weeks or months. The cacao will still hold the lunar energy when you drink it later.
     
  4. Try to place your cacao in direct moonlight overnight. And make sure that the next-morning sunlight does not shine on your cacao, as long exposure to direct sunlight can reduce the potency of cacao. 
     
  5. The next morning or day, retrieve your jar and start preparing your cacao.
     
  6. Then, reconnect with your intentions.
     
  7. Finally, drink in the lunar energy and feel it pulsing in every cell in your body!

For Full Moon rituals, one of our favorites is Glowing Guatemala Pure 100% Cacao.

This cacao can make you feel a strong, mothering, feminine energy, just like the Moon’s energy.

You may also charge any Pure or Enhanced Cacao to your liking. The lunar energy will only further increase the potency of your cacao rituals!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Five-Star Review

"You won’t go back once you try this. Once we tried firefly we can’t go back to the powder or nibs. The difference the [discs] make in how easy they melt makes a world of difference. Great for hikes or just to make your morning a bit easier. Always excellent quality."

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Five-Star Review

"Bold cacao that helps me connect to earth. I love this cacao specifically because of how bold it tastes and feels... It really hits you in your heart and you feel so grounded. I actually enjoy this cacao later in the afternoon because it helps me reconnect to myself and recharge and feel more creative.  It's definitely one of my top favorites." - Sofia H.
