The Benefits of Cacao Manifestation Rituals
There are so many benefits to working with cacao and using it in your manifestation rituals. Here are a few:
- Emotional Healing: Cacao contains compounds that promote the release of endorphins and serotonin, which can help us feel more relaxed and happy. This can help us release negative emotions and heal emotional wounds that may otherwise keep us blocked from manifesting our desires.
- Mental Clarity: Cacao contains theobromine, which can help us feel more alert and focused. This can help us clarify our thoughts and intentions.
- Spiritual Connection: Cacao tends to help us connect with our inner selves, the universe and the divine. This can help us gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and our place in the world.
- Alignment and Intentionality: By setting intentions during a cacao manifestation ritual, we can align our thoughts and actions with our desires. This can help us manifest what we want in our lives coming from a place that reflects our true hearts.
How to Prepare for a Cacao Manifestation Ritual
When preparing for a cacao manifestation ritual, it is important to create a sacred space and set intentions to amplify the power of the ritual. Here are some steps to follow:
1. Choosing the Right Cacao
Choosing the right cacao is essential for a successful manifestation ritual. Look for cacao that is ethically sourced and ceremonial grade. Ceremonial grade cacao is minimally processed and contains a higher percentage of theobromine, which is partially responsible for the heart-opening effects of cacao.
My go-to is Soul Lift Cacao. I choose them again and again because of the company ethics, transparency and quality.

2. Creating a Sacred Space
Creating a sacred space is a must for any manifestation ritual. The space should be clean, comfortable, and free from distractions. You can create a sacred space by:
- Lighting candles or incense. I personally LOVE beeswax candles and tend to use these for the ambiance of my sacred space. You can shop my favorites from my amazon storefront here: Bloom and Manifest Favorite beeswax candles.
- Playing calming music (I love 432hz or 852hz)
- Cleansing the space with herbs like ethically sourced sage
- Adding crystals or other sacred objects
- Grounding mat or pillow to sit on. I use Earth and Moon’s Small Grounding Mat for my morning meditation and also some of my indoor rituals.
3. Setting Intentions
Setting intentions is a key part of any manifestation ritual. Before starting the ritual, take some time to reflect on what you want to manifest in your life. Write down your intentions on a piece of paper and place it in a visible location in your sacred space.
During the ritual, focus on your intentions and visualize them coming to fruition. You can also use affirmations or mantras to reinforce your intentions.
Remember to approach the ritual with an open mind and heart, and trust in the power of the cacao and your intentions.

The Cacao Manifestation Ritual Process
At the heart of the cacao manifestation ritual is the belief that when we consume cacao, we open ourselves up to the power of the earth, the universe, and our divine potential. There should be an air of empowerment surrounding you, but not without humility or gratitude.
I’ll outline the basics of a cacao manifestation ritual that you can do alone or with friends… once complete, I suggest intuitively choosing an additional manifestation ritual to do while you’re still experiencing the blissful effects of drinking your cacao elixir.
1. Preparing the Cacao
For your cacao ritual, you will need:
- either pre-chopped ceremonial cacao or a full cacao block that will require chopping
- if wanted- add a splash of milk, honey, cinnamon, or vanilla to enhance the flavor
- 3 drops of crystal essence (I recommend the ones from 4 Acre Wood Apothecary)
- 3 drops of flower essence (I get the ones from Resonance Apothecary or also from 4 Acre Wood)
- Suggested: Ceremonial Cacao Mug for Ritual Use and Handheld Frother
- To prepare the cacao, you need to heat up water to around 160°F and mix into the cacao. As you mix the cacao, imagine stirring your intentions into the mix and spend a few moments in gratitude.
- Add a the crystal essence that resonates with what you’re manifesting. (suggested read: 10 Best Crystals for Manifesting).
- Next, add the flower essence that resonates with what you’re manifesting- I recommend Clematis, Orange Hibiscus, or Californian Poppy. You can find all of those at Resonance Apothecary.
- You can use a blender or a whisk to ensure that the mixture is smooth and frothy. Once the cacao is ready, you can pour it into your ceremonial cup.
2. Drinking the Cacao
Once you have your cup of cacao, you can begin the drinking portion of the ritual. It’s important to approach the cacao with reverence and intention, as we’re consuming it with the purpose of manifesting our desires and healing anything in the way of them.
As you sip the cacao, you can focus on your intention and visualize what you want to manifest. The cacao can help you connect with your heart and your intuition, allowing you to access inner wisdom and guidance.
3.Meditation and Visualization
After you’ve finished drinking the cacao, you can sit in meditation and visualization. Close your eyes and focus on your breath, allowing yourself to relax and let go of any distractions.
As you meditate, visualize your intention coming to life. See yourself living your desired reality, feeling the emotions associated with it, and experiencing the joy and fulfillment that comes with manifesting your dreams.
By combining the power of cacao, intention, and visualization, we can create a powerful manifestation ritual that can help us bring our desires to life.

Closing Your Cacao Ritual
As we come to the end of our cacao manifestation ritual, it is important to take some time to close the space we have created and integrate the energy and insights we have gained. Here are a few practices that can help us complete the ritual with gratitude and clarity.
1. Gratitude and Release
Before you close the ritual, you can take a moment to express gratitude for the cacao, the elements, the spirits, and yourself.
Thank the cacao for its medicine and guidance, the elements for their support and presence, the spirits for their protection and blessings, and yourself for your courage and openness.
You can also release any emotions, thoughts, or energies that no longer serve you. You can visualize them as clouds, balloons, or any other symbol and let them go with your breath or intentions. You can also use a physical gesture, such as shaking your body, clapping our hands, or sweeping your body with your hands to release any tension or blockages.
After you’ve expressed your gratitude and released attachments, take some time to journal about your experience. Write down any insights, visions, feelings, or questions that came up during the ritual. You can also reflect on your intentions, goals, and actions and see if they have shifted or clarified.
Here are a few journal prompts to consider:
- What did I learn about myself, my life, or my purpose?
- What challenges or opportunities did I discover or identify?
- What actions or changes do I want to make based on this experience?
- What support or resources do I need to manifest my desires?
3. Tarot or Oracle Card Spread for Your Cacao Manifestation Ritual
One of my favorite ways to close a ritual is pulling a tarot or oracle card. Here are a few questions you can ask your deck:
I hope that this guide has provided you with the knowledge and tools necessary to begin your own cacao manifestation ritual! Remember to approach the ritual with reverence and respect, and always trust in the power of the universe to bring your dreams to life.
