We’ve taken some exerpts from several readings and combine them to create a statement on our view of how self discovery and the use of intention works within.
There are two questions which every human being-with rare exceptions-asks himself through most of his life. The rare exceptions are the persons who know the answer to the first of these questions, at least to a significant extent. But everyone asks the second, sometimes in wonder, often in despair. These two questions are: How am I to understand myself?-and: How am I to understand other people? (The Psychology of Self-Esteem)
It’s always good news when people question their beliefs, values and actions. It’s important to try to improve yourself, and to be self-aware. Too many people lack such awareness, and for many reasons- denial being one of them. Engaging in reflection isn’t a luxury. We all need to look inside and discover ourselves. A person’s self is a composite of all of these experiences; it’s dynamic, and it’s always a work in progress. (Psychology Today, Nov. issue)
Getting unstuck involves remembering an injury but reconsidering it from a different, more empathetic perspective. Bring those invisible emotional barriers to your awareness and then struggling against them. It means challenging irrational, unproductive thinking until you get your head on straight; it means facing up to your fear and then calling on your courage and your character to face it down. (Psychology Today, Nov. issue)
Your daily world was not rule by your perception, but by the interpretation of your perception. (Carlos Castaneda)

Thank you all for sharing your love on how chocolate is used in your wellness routines. My little chocolate wellness treat usually consists of a few pistoles of Intentional Chocolate at night as setting the intentions for good rest and sweet dreams along with a cup of ginger tea, to melt the pieces on my tongue.
I will share a few of the wonderful entries we received–
“I eat your chocolates as a fix to my chocolate needs and it uplifts me. Thank you!!!” — How wonderful!
“I find that dark chocolate of at least 70% helps with headaches probably by opening up the blood vessels and calming my blood pressure down.” — Yes, a lovely calming effect!
And the WINNER:
“When I’m stressed out and feel like I’m about to panic, I would eat dark chocolate while listening to calming meditation music while breathing slowly for about 15-20 minutes. I find this will usually bring me back to task at hand with a more positive attitude.”
Thank you Sau-Ming Lee for your entry. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with you address for your free bag of chocolate (wellness!) and as a bonus we will send you a link of our chocolate meditation, as it sounds like you would love that!
As part of our partnership with DBSA we have been providing chocolate meditation tasting kits to support groups around the US. Please read for a lovely story of wellness…
“Your gift of the chocolate meditation kit was very timely as the Depression Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) challenge for the month of July was to find ways to relax and prevent stress from building up. Here at the Recovery Cooperative of Muskegon we are a peer run drop in center for people who live with a mental health diagnosis. At our DBSA meeting today we had two staff and five members attend. We began our group today by practicing chocolate meditation.
These are the comments from the people who participated: I loved the flute music, enjoyed it, this was a relaxing way to get ready for group, I enjoyed it but thought the chocolate was bitter, this is a good way to calm down from anxiety.
Again, thank you so very much for the gift of the chocolate meditation kit. We all enjoyed it very much and thought it was a great wellness tool. We plan to practice chocolate meditation again at future meetings.”
