An Imbolc Cacao Ritual - In contact with your higher self

Imbolc Cacao Vision Finding Ritual

On February 1st and/or 2nd the Celtic annual festival Imbolc is celebrated. It is six weeks after the winter solstice (Yule) and six weeks before the vernal equinox (Ostara).

Life is getting ready to come back, the days are getting longer and the hours of sunshine are increasing again. Under the ground, various plants are already preparing for spring. During this time we can do the same as nature does and align ourselves internally for new projects and phases of life.

To do this, we invite you to get in touch with your higher self and create from this connection.

If you would like to read more about the Higher Self beforehand, take a look at our blog post.


Imbolc Cacao Ritual: Get in contact with your higher self

Feel free to create a small Imbolc altar with candles, power objects and things from nature.

Prepare your Ritual Cacao with lots of love and awareness*.

Sit down and close your eyes for a moment. Take a few deep breaths into your heart.

 Invite the cacao spirit to show you what is important to you today. 

Speak the intention into the cacao to get a little closer to your higher self today. See wether another intention comes from your heart and, if necessary, speak this into the cacao too.

Then drink your cacao sip by sip and keep your attention on your heart.

Close your eyes and feel into your heart. Imagine yourself getting closer and closer to your higher self with every heartbeat and every sip of cacao. Imagine a place where you feel completely comfortable and safe. Invite your higher self - your true self - to this place.

Give him/her a form, an outside. How are movements, clothing and behavior?

Ask this version of yourself what the next step is to get a little closer to it.

 Imagine yourself embracing your true self and the two of you becoming one and then ask yourself: What is it that I really want to be in this world? Let whatever comes come.

When it feels complete to you, say goodbye and open your eyes again.

Thank yourself and the spirit of the cacao and feel inside yourself again whether there is still something for you to do today. Perhaps, supported by cacao medicine, you would like to take further steps towards your true self today.

Don't forget, DOING is like wanting, only more intense :-)

With that in mind, I wish you a wonderful Imbolc Festival.

With Love, Leni
