Whether you are single or in partnership, cultivating love for yourself is key for healthy relating - across all of our relationships. So today, we’re sharing a solo Valentine’s Day Cacao Ritual that you can do not just during Valentine’s Day but whenever you need to come back to self-love!

Self-Love Cacao Ritual

Creating an ambiance is key for any ritual or ceremony.

💐 Beautify your space - maybe buy yourself flowers and create an altar, especially for you with objects that symbolize love and joy.

🎵 Set the mood with candles and a playlist of music that will get you tuned into your heart.

🪞 Have a mirror nearby for your ritual.

Once your space is ready and you have your cacao, open up the ritual with your own personal prayer, thanking cacao for the opportunity to cultivate love within you and speaking out loud the way you wish to express this love in the world.

Take a few hearty sips of cacao, and feel the cacao moving into your heart-space.

Taking deep breaths, grounding into your body, with your hands on your heart, and your eyes closed, begin to tone the sound “AH.” The sound “AH” is associated with the heart chakra and helps open up this space in us. Do this exercise for about 5 minutes,feeling the cacao and your connection to yourself activate.

When your toning is complete, gently open your eyes and with a soft and loving gaze, look at yourself in the mirror. See yourself as though you are looking at the most magnificent thing you’ve ever seen. Now, choose five self-loving affirmations to speak into your cup of cacao to then take a sip. Here are some suggested affirmations:

  • I love and accept myself exactly as I am

  • I am enough

  • I am beautiful in all the ways, shadows and all

  • I embrace myself with love and joy

  • Every day in every way, I am getting happier, healthier, and wiser

To close out your self-love cacao ritual, write to the following prompts in your journal:

  • I am now committing to love myself in these ways…

  • I inspire myself because….

  • I deserve all my love because…
