Today is 13 Kej in the Kiche Mayan Calendar. It’s also a Kej year.
Kej is connected to the four directions. It is a day of the shamans and priestesses. And it is a 13 day, so the veil between worlds is thin. Today is the day to seek insights from the Spirit world. Powerful indeed.
As the nawal of the majestic stag and cacao medicine, today is a day for making an offering with cacao, standing in your center and surveying your dominion. Seek guidance of the four directions and your ancestors and you will receive insights.
A delicious offering recipe, Cacao Pudding
In a mixing bowl blend with a hand blender:
2 large avocados, pit and seed removed
1/2 cup cacao powder (sugar free, not cocoa powder but will suffice if that’s all you have)
stevia to taste
1 drop copaiba oil (contains BCP cannabinoids, not psychoactive, neuro-protective, imparts wisdom, calms the nervous system)
1 drop cardamom oil (not for pregnant or nursing moms, vasodilator, warming)
1 drop cinnamon bark oil (vasodilator, enhances cacao)
1/4 teaspoon salt to taste
Chill for 1 hour ⏳
Set an offering at your altar. Light a candle. Say a prayer and ask for blessing to work with Cacao medicine. Spend time in meditation. For more exploration, download my cacao ceremonial guide (link in bio)🕯

Happy Sunday, Loves! As I connect with regional cacao makers, I learned there are now five (2 purchased) – 1lb blocks available this week from our lovely Matagalpa collective. Follow the link in bio to reserve one before they are gone… (10% off…) We are working towards more offerings of this potent ceremonial-grade cacao.
As you may know, I’ve been working with Cacao medicine while living in jungle. And I am only able to bring a small batch of ceremonial-grade cacao with me to the US when I visit. This lovely small batch of handmade ceremonial-grade cacao is from the highland jungles of Matagalpa, Nicaragua where I live.
Having worked with this medicine for a bit now, I’m smitten with what’s grown here. The ferment is perfect. Pure paste, with cacao butter, not bitter. #veganchocolate
This medicinal cacao is grown in small family collectives with regenerative agroforestry practices.
Thank you for supporting this regenerative agroforestry in Nicaragua. Your support is revolutionary (literally, the 2018 uprising here started because these life-sustaining forests were left to burn…). I’m exploring a more consistent way to export, but at the moment, shipping from Nicaragua is very expensive. So it’s better to bring it in small batches when we visit.
After working with this medicine, I recently created a beautiful guide on holding a cacao ceremony (personal meditation or group). This sugar-free, heavy with good brain fats and heart-opening medicine can shift your relationship with chocolate to be healing, while decolonizing your body.
I’ve also been preparing a private online group on Mighty Network that will open to folx that purchase the guide.
You can find the Guide book and — if it’s still available — 100% Ceremonial-Grade Cacao in 1 pound offerings in my bio link.
Walk in beauty. Live your magic. Go wild.

What does your heart want?
The world is tilting in contraction. Will you contract in this time? Will you revert to your place of comfort, the small-self addicted to cycles of fear?
Or will you open your heart and let Love in as your Guide during this tumultuous time?
When my heart cuts off and my mind begins to slip into rinse and repeat of old, fear-based patterns, patterns of resistance, I turn to gentle Cacao medicine for healing.
From a scientific and neuroscience perspective, Cacao is a vasodilator, containing theobromine and good brain supporting fats to gently open your heart and shift your perspective.
What is Ceremonial-grade Cacao? It’s hand-crafted, fermented 100% chocolate, nothing added or taken away. Naturally sugar-free, with all the essential medicinal ingredients grown in harmony. Crafted for looking within.
I’ve created a simple, yet powerful guide to working with Cacao medicine in meditation and in group ceremony. It also includes how and where to source indigenous-grown, regenerative ceremonial-grade Cacao. You can learn more at ixchel.love/cacao
Stay open and Love, fiercely. 💗

The more I travel, the more I feel transformed by the places I’ve been fortunate to visit.
Sadhana in Zion is magical. I return to Nicaragua with a deep connection to a new women’s collective, my Shakti Sisters, and a clarity of direction for how to strengthen my service to my clients through their daily rituals.
I’m grateful that I’ve found medicine in the intersections of Kundalini, WildFit and Cacao. The Fall retreat will dive deep into the Shakti School teachings of the Five Pillars of a Woman’s Wellbeing. Watch this space…
