Deep within the lush jungles of Koh Tao, where the promise of new beginnings hung in the air, we embarked on a spiritual journey in a new moon ceremony. The energy of intentions set during this celestial event can manifest when the full moon enters the same zodiac sign.
Amidst the captivating aura of Capricorn, a horoscope known for its go-getter spirit and disciplined nature, we delved into a cacao ceremony. The ritual was aided by the cleansing energy of palo santo, which is said to attract positivity and love.
Guided by the capable hands of Hannah, a yoga teacher, and Danni, founder of Koh Tao Holistic and a sound bath healer, we immersed ourselves in the mystical world of cacao. Cacao, which can be seen as an entity or spirit, demands our honour and respect.
As a self-proclaimed chocolate enthusiast, the prospect of this unique experience excited me. After receiving insightful information about the ceremony, we were prompted to journal and answer reflective questions.
What new beginnings am I ready to embrace?
What boundaries do I need to set with myself or others to get there?
What practical steps do I need to transform my goals into reality?
What will it look and feel like when they become reality?
The cacao, a catalyst for our introspection, left me feeling focused, relaxed, and, in some inexplicable way, almost psychedelic. We inscribed what we wished to release onto pieces of paper and ritualistically burned them, symbolizing a cathartic act of letting go.
Connected to our cups, we sipped the cacao, giving thanks for the energy it was about to bestow upon us. Our intention was to open the heart chakra and vibrate from a place of love, a process I felt particularly attuned to from my personal journey through trauma and pain.
The subsequent guided meditation led by Hannah facilitated profound self-love and healing, reaffirming my belief that I am on the right path. The collective sobbing during the meditation felt like a cleansing, not of our sadness, but of a shared emotional release.
Following the meditation, a mesmerizing sound bath healing ensued. The resonating frequencies seemed to unblock my lower chakras, addressing feelings of insecurity and lack of grounding. The energy work culminated with a focus on realistic goal-setting, guided by the disciplined spirit of Capricorn.
As the sound healing concluded, a sense of connection permeated the group. We discussed our experiences, exchanged hugs, and shared laughter, leaving each of us feeling intimately connected.
The ceremony proved to be a powerful way to commence 2024, and I eagerly anticipate the progress and transformation the next six months will bring. This serves as a poignant reminder to take time for introspection, connect with the heart, set meaningful goals, and release what no longer serves us on our individual journeys.
