We use FULL POWER CACAO in the exploration and fusion of the ancient practices of Yoga and Shamanism. Yoga means union and is a path to self realisation and enlightenment. Shamanism is the interaction with the spirit world and both are practices traditionally designed to lead us to the direct flow of wisdom and the embodiment of spirit. The end goal is to align us to our true nature.
Here we take a look at the relationship between Cacao and the Chakra system and how Cacao positively works on each chakra to bring us into balance and purification.
Chakras have a strong bearing on our health, our state of mind, and our relationships with others. Lady Cacao gives us an opportunity to move towards the fullest expression of who we truly are and this can be the catalyst in removing barriers in all areas of your life; relationships, fitness, laughter, love, fear of death, direction/life purpose and remembering our forgotten dreams. These can all be related to our Chakra system. To function at their best, our Chakras need to be balanced and Lady Cacao is a specialist at bringing our energy centres into harmony.
Muladhara Chakra – Root Chakra
Color – Red;
Element – Earth
Root chakra (Muladhara). Responsible for your sense of security and stability, the Root Chakra is located at the base of your spine. Lady Cacao is nature and inspires us to be more connected with her. She reminds us that Mother Gaia provides all we need and she asks us to align with our own true nature, which is self-sufficient, stable and balanced. She gives us the power to meet our basic needs of shelter, food and money with effortless ease. With this foundation in place we can be ready for our own personal journey to greatness. Lady Cacao allows us to feel that deep connection to the earth and feel our roots going deep, deep, deep into the ground.
The seed mantra (beej mantra) of Muladhara Chakra is ‘Lam’
Svadhishthana Chakra is located in the lower abdomen and is related to our creativity, sensuality, sexuality and self worth. It’s an area where we can store unprocessed emotions. Lady Cacao opens up these areas so that the emotions can be released and processed. She gives us permission to cry the tears that we have pushed away. With that space she gives us the freedom to connect with our creativity and self expression. She invites us to write poetry, songs and books, to paint and create. With Lady Cacao being the perfect creative partner we feel more vibrant, happy, positive, able to dance, romance and express ourselves more freely.
The seed mantra (beej mantra) of Svadhishthana Chakra is ‘Vam’
Manipura Chakra – Solar Plexus Chakra
Color – Yellow;
Element – Fire
Manipura Chakra is located at the solar plexus, between the navel and the bottom of the rib cage. This Chakra is to do with the fire in our belly and how we find our inner power. This is where Lady Cacao gives us strength, like our FULL POWER Jaguar and the divine feminine energy she is, she allows us to be fierce, passionate and powerful. When Cacao energises this centre we are truly fearless, empowered, determined and able to listen to our gut which is always communicating with us. When we balance this Chakra, we feel energetic, confident, productive, and focussed.
The seed mantra (beej mantra) of Manipura Chakra is ‘Ram’.
Anahata Chakra is located in the heart region. This chakra is the seat of balance between the lower earthly physical Chakras and the higher ethereal Chakras. This is where Lady Cacao really finds her home. She opens the heart fully and allows this love energy and truth to flow through the whole body so that anything not in alignment with it can be processed and removed. She brings our whole being into alignment with the heart, which when balanced is led by the emotions of love, non-attachment, compassion and trust. When in harmony this Chakra is overflowing with unconditional love and a person begins to feel more passionate, caring, optimistic, friendly, and motivated. We can then start operating at FULL POWER!!!!
The seed mantra (beej mantra) of Anahata Chakra is ‘Yam’.
Visuddha Chakra is located at the base of the throat, coinciding with the thyroid gland. Lady Cacao is all about revealing your personal truth to yourself and being able to share that with others through communication. She wants you to create clear boundaries and be able to have difficult conversations from a place of inner wisdom and love. She uses the confidence of the heart to be expressed freely through speech, song and public speaking. The Chakra is associated with inspiration, healthy expression, faith, and the ability to communicate well. When Lady Cacao has opened and healed this Chakra, it enables creativity, positive self-expression, constructive communication, and a sense of satisfaction. Now with grace, purpose and strength let me hear you say FULL POWER!!!
The seed mantra (beej mantra) of Vishuddha Chakra is ‘Ham’.
Ajna Chakra – Third Eye Chakra
Color – Indigo;
Element – Light
Ajna Chakra is located between the eyebrows and known as the Third Eye Chakra. It is often used as a focal point during yoga practice to develop more concentration and awareness. This is where the power of Lady Cacao can really be felt as she gives you freedom from the constant chatter of the mind and allows you to drop into the heart. Lady Cacao helps you to realise that the mind is not the master of you but you are the master of the mind and it is time to take back control. Ajna Chakra is the inner knowing of your life purpose and cosmic powers showing you who you really are. When Lady Cacao activates and balances this chakra, a person feels more vibrant and confident, both spiritually and emotionally. Lady Cacao helps teach us that in the absence of the fear of death, one becomes his own master and remains free of all attachment to material things. Aho!!
The seed mantra (beej mantra) of Ajna Chakra is ‘Om
Sahasrara Chakra – Crown Chakra
Color – Violet/White;
Element – Cosmic Energy
The Sahasrara Chakra is located at the crown of the head and is our opening to cosmic consciousness, Great Spirit, Source Energy, God, whatever you want to call it, but something greater and bigger than yourself. With Lady Cacao’s ability to quieten the mind it allows us the opportunity to feel energies and a deeper connection to spirit. This is where we can tap into sacred energy, creative consciousness and a deeper connection to the divine. The seventh chakra is the center of spirituality, enlightenment, dynamic thought and energy. When Lady Cacao opens us up she allows for the inward flow of wisdom and brings the gift of cosmic consciousness so we can overflow with divine love! FULL POWER!!!!!

The perfect gift
– Full Power Cacao
Treat a friend or family member to the gifts of FULL POWER CACAO. Introduce them to this heart opening medicine and share the love.
FULL POWER CACAO is one of the worlds best superfoods due to its high nutritional value. It is a natural antidepressant and has the highest content of antioxidants in the world, which is known to reduce the risk of cancer. It is also high in calcium, magnesium, theobroma and anandamide, aka the love chemical.
Our Cacao is packed with flavonoids which have been shown to help lower blood pressure, improve blood flow to the brain and heart, and aid in preventing blood clots. The flavonoids in cacao help increase insulin sensitivity, reducing your risk of diabetes.
Below I have listed my Top 10 Health Benefits of FULL POWER CACAO!!
1. Natural Anti-depressant
Cacao contains the essential amino acid tryptophan, which increases production of serotonin, an important brain chemical that helps us remain positive and happy. These neurotransmitters also remain in the bloodstream longer after ingesting cacao, creating a natural anti depressant benefit, while the theobromine content boosts energy levels and relieves fatigue. Cacao’s Greek name is ‘Theobroma Cacao’ which means ‘Food of the Gods’ and the benefits are found in the neurotransmitter modulating agents that act as natural antidepressants. FULL POWER CACAO is a source of magnesium and potassium, both of which are essential for normal psychological function and the running of the nervous system. Magnesium is seen as “The Original Chill Pill” and remedy for anxiety, apathy, depression, headaches, insecurity, irritability, restlessness and sulkiness.
2. Feel Good
As well as stopping you from feeling stressed and depressed, cacao actively makes you feel happier! Containing a powerful mix of beneficial natural compounds, including: serotonin, phenylethylamine, and anandamide known as the ‘The Bliss Molecule’, all of which have been shown to enhance mood and create feelings of euphoria. Phenethylamine triggers the release of endorphins and mood-enhancing neurochemicals in the brain and is a compound humans have been shown to produce when in love. These are also released naturally during love making, so it’s no wonder FULL POWER CACAO can be so euphoric!
3. Healthy Heart
Cacao is packed with flavonoids. These nutrients have been shown to help lower blood pressure, improve blood flow to the brain and heart, and aid in preventing blood clots. Healthy blood flow is crucial to the successful function of all our organs and bodily processes. The circulatory system is responsible for transporting nutrients, water and oxygen to every cell in the body through a complex network of blood vessels, arteries and capillaries. Healthy blood flow is needed for the heart, brain, skin, eyes, liver, immune system, digestive system to work properly. Cacao is also a source of potassium which contributes to the maintenance of normal blood pressure. Cacao is an easy way to get your flavonoid fix and support your heart health as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Heart related illnesses are the number 1 cause of death globally. 20g of FULL POWER CACAO contains at least 200mg of Cacao flavanols, which has been scientifically proven and verified by EFSA to help maintain the elasticity of blood vessels, supporting healthy blood flow.
4. Full Of Protien
Every cell in the human body contains protein, therefore it’s crucial to be eating it daily to repair cells and support the growth and maintenance of muscle mass. Cacao contains 23% of natural protein, perfect for those looking to up their protein intake and for vegans and vegetarians who may not be getting enough protein in their diet. Cacao is also a source of potassium and magnesium with a single serving providing 15% and 26% Nutrient Reference Value respectively.
5. Brain Power
The flavonoids in cacao have been shown to have a positive effect on the brain and can counteract or slow down cognitive decline during ageing – helping improve various types of cognitive and visual tasks. This is a result of more efficient blood flow to different nerve tissues, which regulate and control bodily functions and activity. One study of healthy volunteers showed that after just 5 days of consuming Cacao there was improved blood flow to the brain. Further to this, a similar study by researchers showed that daily consumption of Cacao improved thinking skills in older adults with mild cognitive impairment. It is also known that a diet rich in flavonoids can help reduce the risk of dementia.
6. Healthy Gut
Cacao powder contains 33% fibre which stimulates the body’s digestive enzymes and helps with the absorption of nutrients, improving digestive function, gut health and bowel regularity. Fibre can also aid in weight management as it helps you feel fuller for longer.
7. Skin Benefits
Cacao contains 15 times more antioxidants than blueberries. Antioxidants protect our cells from premature oxidation or destruction and can keep us looking and feeling younger. They boost the production of collagen, increase cellular healing and counteract signs of ageing. Well hydrated skin is better protected against external influences and has a smooth, healthy glowing appearance.
8. Reduction of Tiredness and Fatigue
Cacao is super rich in magnesium and upping your magnesium intake is an easy, natural way to help reduce tiredness and fatigue. A study by Oxford Brookes Centre for Nutrition and Health has revealed that the high flavanol content of Cacao could help reduce fatigue in sufferers of multiple sclerosis (MS). Over 100,000 people in the UK are affected by MS and nine out of 10 patients suffer from tiredness. Researchers tested the use of flavonoid rich Cacao on 40 adult patients, who drank a cup of hot Cacao every day for six weeks. Participants were either given a flavanol-rich hot Cacao or a low -flavonoid version. Those given the high flavanol Cacao drink experienced a 45% improvement in alertness and an 80% boost in walking speed according to tests.
9. Muscle Growth and Fitness
The natural protein found in Cacao supports the growth and maintenance of muscle mass. Thanks to its high magnesium and potassium content and being rich in electrolytes it maintains a good flow of oxygen to all our organs, muscles and tissues. This is key to athletic performance and post-workout recovery. Try it blended with banana for a pre or post workout smoothie.
10. Sexy Chocolate
Cacao has always been considered a ‘very powerful’ aphrodisiac, exotic food, and medicine, by the Mesoamerican and South American cultures, such as the Mayans, Aztecs and Spanish conquistadors. With the heart opening effect and extra blood flow to the genital area Cacao is so much more powerful than conventional Chocolate. Going into ceremony with a partner can allow a deeper heart based connection and add more sensuality and sensitivity to your exploration of one another.
