What is Cacao?

Cacao is the raw, unprocessed version of cocoa. The healthiest chocolate in the world! (it reaally is) because not only is it a sacred medicine to many cultures, it is classed as a superfood. What a bonus that this sacred plant medicine provides so many health benefits. Cacao is a cultivated plant originating throughout South & Northern America, Ghana, Southeastern Asia & Nigeria. Cacao requires tropical weather and tending so she can thrive.


There are several varieties of Cacao, such as Criollo Forastero, Nacional and Trinitaro. "Food of the gods" was the translated name from the ancient greek language. The Aztecs once travelled to the mountains to discover the sacred plant given by the gods. Cacao is the richest source of natural theobromine.


What is a Cacao Dieta?

A Cacao dieta gives us sacred space and time for ourselves in a stressful and chaotic world. It is the perfect space to switch off the external noise and take a shamanic journey into ourselves to meet the spirit of Cacao. Once we have met her, she gives us the answers we seek, helps us find clarity, and shows us the next steps we need to take. 

Cacao is a powerful Plant Medicine that assists us in releasing emotional blockages that no longer benefit us, discovering forgiveness in ourselves and others, and showing us the way forward if we are afraid or stuck of making the necessary life changes to move on. Cacao also allows us to access conditionings, stuck emotions, patterns of behaviour and addictions that are buried deep in the unconscious and release them in a safe and nurturing environment. 

We drink Cacao to reconnect with our deep inner guidance. Using Shamanic journeying, you will be guided to meet the Cacao Spirit to discover more about yourself, release negative blockages, open your heart, and find peace and clarity. Cacao is not psychoactive and does not take you out of your body. Everyone will experience Cacao differently. It all depends on an individual’s extra sensory perception and how Cacao works with you.


“Whether you are looking for support shifting an emotional blockage, requiring to let go of a past experience, dissolve old traumas, echoes and negative energy, or simply desire to lift your spirits, to feel loved up and blissed out, cacao dieta provide the focus you need to re-align with who you really are and get back on track.”


Spiritual Benefits of Cacao


Cacao is a plant medicine used for the heart space. Cacao expands the heart's energy to feel an abundance of unconditional love. Cacao is used to create a communal space, to reconnect each other to the oneness (singing, dancing and much more). Cacao is also a private and sacred practice that can be used for the self-healing journey. Cacao can be combined with other sacred plants like Rose, Blue Lotus etc. It depends on what you need from the combination of plants, but Cacao is purely for the heart space.


She inherits so much wisdom & allows you to connect with your higher self in such a gentle, anchored way. She brings euphoric energy as well as nurturing. When we journey or meditate with Cacao, we can access her wisdom & she allows us to bring forward our own. Healing with Cacao is a beautiful way to release emotional pain and trauma. From this, we gain unique experience and wisdom.

The Healing Power of Plant Ceremony


You don’t need to be unwell to reap the benefits of making healthy choices – it’s all part of investing in your well-being. Proactively maintaining your mental health is as important as taking care of your body by exercising or eating well.

Thanks to a surge in mainstream media. What’s also coming to light is that plant medicine works and benefits people without diagnosed mental health conditions who nonetheless wish to improve their mental well-being, creativity and ability to thrive despite modern stressors. 

We have all experienced Trauma, even if those traumatic events have not resulted in diagnosed mental health conditions. We’ve all experienced a particularly stressful few years during the pandemic. Our lives are typically busy with competing demands on time and energy, and our bodies accumulate daily stress. This can lead to burnout in the long run.

Plant medicine provides an opportunity to process and discharge Trauma and stress from the nervous system and the body, where it is stored. This helps us mentally recharge, improves mood and enhances our overall well-being. Providing the appropriate “container” – a controlled and safe environment.

It is also important to give yourself space to integrate from a retreat/ Ceremony experience (which, at Soulful Medicine, is fully supported.) In a guided setting, where facilitators create a container of safety and provide the necessary support, it is possible to have life-changing experiences with psychedelics. Exploring the expanded states of consciousness that psychedelics provide creates many positive outcomes that aid mental wellness.
