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. 💗

Kundalini yoga is not as well-known as other forms of yoga such as Hatha, nor as old, but there is a growing interest in it because of the interest in it as not just a good workout, but a way of transforming body, mind and spirit.
💫
Yoga has been used as part of traditional Indian medicine for more than 5,000 years. Some Mayans believe the technology was delivered to India from Snake Island (Central American region, including Atlantis). Many Yogic words share similarities in Mayan languages. The Mayans have studied koyopa, their term for Kundalini. 💫
Kundalini in the East has been used for more than 1,200. It was developed in India with a specific goal in mind, to tap into the latent energy within us all. This is known as Kundalini, which means coiled. The energy is pictured as being coiled around the base of the spine. The coil also refers to your restrained potential, which Kundalini yoga can help awaken so you can live your best life.
💫
The question of whether or not it works depends on your definition. In reference to being a great form of physical health, folx would agree it can make you incredibly strong in a short period of time.
💫
The word yoga means union, a union of body, mind and spirit. Ancient wisdom tells us that a healthy mind produces a healthy body, and vice versa. Kundalini is used to heal by balancing the energy centers in the body, including the 7 chakras most known. Chakra means wheel. The poses, movement, meditation and chanting are designed to move the coiled energy up the central channel that connects the chakras to one another.
💫
The sets of poses, or kriyas, have been shown to help with breathing problems, depression, anxiety, and more, enhancing mood, reducing stress, and helping people transform their lives. Some kriyas have been scientifically studied to show improvements in neuroplasticity, cognitive function, and increased flow states.
💫
Kundalini yoga works if you set your intention and then track it for 40 Days. To improve your relationships with loved ones, try a kriya for opening the heart and see how much smoother your live becomes. The one for addiction is life-changing. (Continues in comments)

If you’re like me, you’ve probably been horrified at the world news — if you don’t live under a rock. I know I’ve been leaning on my nervous system reset tools harder lately.
What I’ve seen with cycles like these is that we tend to desensitize and shut down when we don’t have good coping skills. This kind of coping generally leads to increased stress from: * either resistance to feelings
* not doing the things that help us stay healthy * or really veering off course into self destructive behaviors
But it doesn’t have to be like that.
There’s been a lot of talk about what we can do for the planet and her inhabitants including going vegan.
BUT THAT MIGHT NOT BE THE BEST SOLUTION…
The fact is eating fake animal protein substitutes come with a lot of environmental problems of their own, including: * mono-cropping with GMOs, pesticides and herbicides that have detrimental impacts on bees and butterflies * tilling of vast amounts of healthy topsoil which kills countless microbes that sink carbon and reduce climate chaos * trucking, processing, packaging and cold storage of mono crops (which increases carbon emissions and favors big agriculture over small famers)
Don’t get me wrong. Eating a plant-based diet is what humans are meant to do. But buying packaged isn’t the solution.

Instead, I want to remind you about the WILDFIT® program and how you, too, can transition to a plant-based ancestral diet without all the confusion.
I’ve added an ebook, EAT LIKE YOU CARE: Health Benefits of a Plant-Based Diet for my Rhythm + Flow Hive.

Are you ready to go plant-based?

I also want to find out what is your Deep Why for considering WILDFIT® and how I can help you transform your curiosity into action?

I’m so committed to helping my clients have transformation so they can move past the emotional and environmental triggers that keep them from doing their good work in the world. So, if you’re ready to take the leap and start on Monday, click the bio link. I’ve still got tons of amazing bonuses and support included.
And if you’re so close, but something is holding you back, message me and let’s start the conversation.

Love this artist. Her ceramic rainbows are delightful too.

But this piece takes me back to California Pacific Coast trips as a kid. Magnificent moments of collecting seashells and driftwood.
