The Spiritual Benefits of Chocolate

The Spiritual Benefits of Chocolate

Chocolate is a comfort that we all indulge in from time to time. It is a sweet treat that we enjoy eating, but it is also something that is good for you. The health benefits of dark chocolate are amazing. It can help lower your blood pressure, help you lose weight, reduce your stress, and much more, but did you know that chocolate also has spiritual benefits as well?

This belief dates back to the Mayans; they used pure chocolate to perform spiritual ceremonies. These cacao ceremonies were done to connect with spirits and open the mind and body to spiritual awakenings. Here are some of the ways that chocolate can benefit you on a spiritual level:

  1. Chocolate creates a powerful essence that allows you to see the world in a different light. It narrows the wall between our reality and that of the spiritual realm so that you can become part of both simultaneously. You will experience life in a different light. It will have a deeper meaning, your purpose will become clearer, and you will be able to simply enjoy life as it comes. In effect, eating chocolate will make you happy.
  2. When you eat chocolate, you gain more clarity about your life, so your creative process opens. Chocolate gives you access to talents that may be stifled at other times. The spiritual energies of your soul flow more easily so that you can dance, sing, paint, or play the musical instrument of your choice with ease. The next time you have some chocolate, see what creative energies are flowing from your spirit. It may even lead you to a creative career choice that you never considered.
  3. You will be able to manipulate your vibrations, which will make communicating with the spirits a much easier concept than it is without chocolate. When you have this alignment, you will be able to see the auras of others as well. If you are a psychic yourself, then you will be able to feel a connection with those who you are attempting to help. Sometimes it can be difficult to connect because off days can happen, but a little chocolate can enhance your senses.
  4. When you practice meditation and yoga exercises, you will feel a deeper spiritual and emotional connection to the world around you. These exercises can be spiritually cleansing, but if you have a bit of chocolate before taking part, you will feel even more enlightened.
  5. Chocolate makes you enjoy life, at least in that moment, so as you indulge, you will find inspiration in the things that surround you. I like to look outside at the birds flying in the sky, the trees blowing in the wind, or the rain dripping from the sky. My main point of inspiration is nature, which helps me connect to the earth itself, but you may find another inspiration in your life when you indulge in chocolate.
  6. Balance is essential in life. Your body has both male and female energies as well as positive and negative energies, which means that you need a certain amount of balance in your life to be able to live a harmonious life. When you have a bit of chocolate in your life, maintaining this essential balance becomes easier.
  7. Chocolate releases the same endorphins into your body as being in love does, so if you are feeling unloved, chocolate will become your best friend. When you feel love in your life, you feel a sense of being one with the universe. You connect to something that is bigger than you, which allows you to expand your spiritual capabilities and spread your love to others. In this state of bliss, love will come to you in many ways; all you have to do is open your heart to the possibility. This deeper connection can be felt through the universe and other spirits as well.
  8. Chocolate allows you to have a deeper connection with a higher power. This could be God, another soul, or a spiritual guide who crosses your life path. These deep connections help you to reach into your own spiritual power to be able to connect with others. When you can feel the emotions around you, you can easily release those emotions to rise above them and become truly happy.
