September 13 is known as International Chocolate Day. In ancient times the Mayans and Aztecs used the base ingredient in chocolate during rituals to enhance their connection to the spirit world. Since chocolate releases endorphins that promote peaceful, loving feelings, meditating with chocolate can help you ease into the process.
Sit in a comfortable position and take three deep breaths. Place a small piece of chocolate in your mouth and let it melt onto your tongue. A more pure form of chocolate with less sugar is the most beneficial to connect you with spirit via meditation. As the chocolate slowly dissolves in your mouth, close your eyes and focus on going deep within while being mindful of the present moment. Relax and trust the guidance that you receive from your inner teacher and the wise whispers from your spirit guides.
