Revered by the ancient Mayans as “Food of the Gods” Cacao has been considered Sacred for thousands of years. Traditionally used in Sacred Ceremony as a spirit bridge to connect to other realms. The cacao beans contain a psychoactive ingredient called theobromine, which translates to “food of the Gods“. Theobromine is a bitter alkaloid which has been shown to be mildly stimulating, giving you a burst of energy and improving focus as well as memory storage. Cacao also increases the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain as well as induces the release of endorphins and dopamine, our feel-good hormones. As a result, we are happier and our creativity is reaching peak states. Since ancient times cacao has been used as a medicine to heal physical, mental and spiritual illnesses. Cacao has been shown to boost the immune system and lower cholesterol and blood pressure as well as leading to euphoria and deeper spiritual connection.
This sound journey meditation experience is designed to:
- shift brainwaves and states of consciousness
- clear blockages in the energetic centers
- release tension in the physical body
- bring harmony and balance to the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system.
Powerful gongs serve as a facilitator to break up energetic, emotional, and spiritual blockages. Featuring 2 unique and complementary gongs, the Sun gong and Atlantis. The "Sun Gong'' is specifically tuned to the vibrational frequency of the Sun and is associated with OM. It has been revered by Hindus since ancient times that the sun is the physical manifestation of OM, which gives life and vibrates its healing and life giving frequency. The second featured gong is the "Atlantis Gong," it can facilitate emotional release, clear energetic blockages and heighten intuitive connection. They both carry deep full bodied sound and harmonic overtones that can conjure up emotional depth, stimulate the nervous system, and provide a very potent energetic vibration cleanse.
