October 31st is Halloween again. Halloween is one of the most beloved holidays that people from all over the world look forward to. It’s a time full of costumes, candy, and of course spooky decorations. During Halloween, you can also take a conscious moment for yourself or with your loved ones to connect with a Halloween cocoa recipe. You can read more about it in this blog.
Halloween: where does it come from?
The name Halloween was first used in 16th century Scotland. It is a corruption of All Hallows’ Even, the evening before All Saints’ Day. Samhain was an important time of the year for the Celts. It marked the end of summer and the beginning of winter, a time of darkness and cold. A period in which we enter silence.
Halloween cocoa recipe
For Halloween we can make a recipe with ceremonial cocoa that is suitable for Halloween. What do you need for it?
- Ceremonial Cocoa (30 grams)
- Oat milk, almond milk, coconut milk or water (of your choice)
- Cooky spices
- Lemon or vanilla extract or essential oil. I use the plus oils from Young Living often.
You can order a cocoa heart or a discovery package if you want to taste different flavors. A large block of cocoa is also an option. Then you have a stock.
Cacao Ceremony at home
You can create a cacao ceremony at home for yourself with Halloween as theme. From light to darkness. More softness and surrendering. You can start the ceremony with drinking your cacao with an intention. What intention do you have for the transition to a darker period? Take time to let this settle in. Since we just got a full moon, this time is still a good time to follow my Online Full Moon Cacao & Rite of the Womb Ritual. It is a time of letting go, and attract what you desire.
