Embodied Spirituality Pt. 2: Upper Chakras
This week, Jenn and Katrina are continuing their conversation started in last week's episode about embodied spirituality, which is addressing the way that our bodies are impacted by energy, how they hold wounding, and how that can manifest in our lives.
If you haven't yet listened to last week's episode, we recommend you listen to that one first so you can fully receive the information in part 2.
In part 2, Jenn & Katrina are talking about the four upper main chakras (heart, throat, third eye, and crown), and what they look like when overactive and underactive. This episode is packed with practical information and tips for you to balance your own chakras!
1:40 - Jenn shares how blockages or wounding in the lower chakras are very common, and can cause overactivity in the upper chakras.
2:20 - Wounding or blockages in the lower chakras can lead to feelings of not wanting to be here, which leads to chasing feelings of bliss or oneness in spirituality. This is excessive and not balanced.
5:19 - Jenn shares about the heart chakra,
7:04 - Jenn shares about the energetic channel between the root, heart, and crown chakras. This channel is where we get our energy up from the root from the earth, and down from the cosmos through the crown, and these energies meet in the heart where they center us. Katrina calls this "the center of our being."
8:38 - "The purest energy of all of our chakras is the spiritual state. it's not anything we have to do or strive for. It is something that is innate. It is our truth. It is our connection to ourselves."
9:33 - Jenn shares how the heart can be the place of inner peace and equanimity when in a healthy balance of activity.
12:15-13:13 - Jenn shares a tip for opening and awakening the energy in the heart chakra.
13:24 - Katrina shares a recent experience for her sitting in the presence of her feelings and connecting with her heart chakra.
14:53 - "I like to see the heart as the center of understanding, whereas the mind is the realm of knowing. We don't always have to know everything, but we can understand. So understanding takes a little more faith, it's a little more subtle." - Jenn
16:55 - "When our hearts are fully open, we are embodying our higher selves. It's not a connection, it's an embodying, a becoming." - Jenn
17:50 - 18:43 "Wherever there is no judgement, there is no fear. And wherever there is no fear, there is love. And that's the heart chakra." - Jenn, dropping so many INCREDIBLE gems in this episode!!!
22:25 - Jenn shares methods to heal the heart chakra.
23:57 - Katrina shares a method she practices to overcome judgement and align with connection and love.
26:47 - Katrina shares about the throat chakra, including examples of overactive throat chakra energy and underactive throat chakra energy.
30:29 - Katrina shares about a past life that negatively impacts her throat chakra today.
32:28 - "Am I sharing my truth? Am I speaking my full expression? Am I holding back because I am afraid? Am I holding back because of some trauma?" - A lot of us would say yes to some of these questions, but there are ways to heal.
34:10 - 35:12 "Do you feel like your life is in alignment with who you truly are?" "When we continuously start speaking our truth, we start to live our truth. We start to embody our truth. We start to let our lives be this expression of our truth. Our lives are the greatest story that we tell. When our lives become in alignment with who we truly are, then we are living our truth." - Jenn
35:49 - Katrina shares suggestions on how to help heal your through chakra.
38:40 - Katrina shares about the third eye chakra.
39:26 - Katrina shares about different ways of sensing your intuition (the clairs).

41:40 - Katrina shares examples of an overactive and underactive third eye chakra.
42:29 - Jenn shares about her mental health journey.
42:50-43:21 - "How I like to understand it is that all mental unwellness, or psychological unwellness, is a state of disconnection from our soul, a disconnection from love, a disconnection from our true nature. And it's never your fault. It's a result of trauma, intergenerational trauma, a very unhealed world, but it's never your fault." - Jenn
45:19 - Jenn shares about the Divine Feminine channel and the Divine Masculine channel in relation to our chakras.
47:30 - Katrina shares methods for healing and balancing the third eye chakra, and improving intuition.

53:20 - Katrina and Jenn discuss how depression could be a symptom of a blocked crown chakra.
55:24-56:21 - "Your vibration is not determined by what you feel. It's determined by how you are feeling it. You can feel sadness, anger, so many things. But how are you feeling it? Are you letting it get you down, or are you letting those feelings be your teachers, your guides, your healers?" - Jenn
58:50 - Jenn shares a breathing exercise to help support your root-heart-crown chakra channel.
