The Chocolate Shaman
I’d like to stay with Keith for this weeks WOW as so many of you have been in contact to tell me how much you enjoyed last weeks video of his, and how to Quantum Jump. Most of the comments were something along the lines of, “I can’t believe it’s that easy!” And yes crazy but true, life CAN be easy, it doesn’t have to be a struggle; who knew?!
The picture quote is taken from Keith’s website and I love love love it and totally agree (as I sit and write this nibbling on Keith’s Cacao 😉)
We hold cacao ceremonies here at Inner Guidance twice a week, before our meditation and yoga classes for locals and guests, and on all of our retreats. Keith gave me his blessing to do so back in 2013 and since then we have literally held hundreds.
We have been experiencing many problems in getting Keith’s Cacao over the last few months; a problem with the mill in Guatemala; new paperwork to get deliveries through America, all slowing down the process. We are now, however, very hopeful that things are going to speed up again and you can get your name down on our preview list and be one of the first to be notified when the next order comes in (we are hoping it will be in around 2 weeks). Click here to get on that list 🍫 and click on the graphic above to check out Keith’s website and the ton of information about the health benefits and composition of ceremonial grade cacao.
❝Today I am going to Ladies’ Day at the races with a group of friends – an occasion notorious for the before and after pictures of people arriving looking glamorous and immaculate, and leaving many hours later, completely hammered – staggering, smeared make up – the works. Last year my friends went and I didn’t, worried that the relentless focus on prosecco would mean that I would feel irritated and out of kilter with everyone else, struggle with my sobriety. I have found that I have struggled when I have had the mindset that I am ‘missing out’, even in spite of being aware of all the benefits that sobriety have brought me, and this has led me to start questioning my original decision about sobriety, whereas accessing the mindset where I only feel gratitude and don’t feel deprived in any way makes it struggle-free. Making the shift to that mindset is the holy grail, and different tools work for different people, but in my experience meditation has been key.
Arrived at 1pm and I bailed out along with another girl at 7.30pm when everyone around us got too drunk and the seagulls had become like a scene from The Birds 😊You notice whatever your attention is focused on I suppose, but as soon as we arrived, when I went to the loo, there was a woman who was so hammered that she couldn’t stand, and rather than seeing shiny people sipping champagne I saw dull numb ones knocking back glass after glass. As I was leaving there was a young woman walking in front of me and I could literally see her bare bum 🙁
I really didn’t feel envious of the drinkers, but I made sure I had an exit strategy so I could get the best of the time with my friends, but leave when the focus became the alcohol. Xx❞
