Instead of guru’s what we need is each other, balanced in our light and intuition, holding space for one another. Logically, it doesn’t make sense that there would be only a few “gifted” people in this world to support billions on their journey. That would be too exhausting and it doesn’t scale. How can you gently hold your light and create space for others to do the same around you? That’s the goal, and it happens in very small shifts.
About a month ago, I realized TikTok had removed the audio from my throat chakra healing video, how ironic. It was pure happenstance that I even looked back at an old video and the fact that I noticed it, this was one of my signs, a gentle nudge I was receiving from Source. I knew there needed to be a more permanent option so I held space for this throat chakra clearing and activation. This is one you can come back to whenever it feels right for you, we’re in a big season of clear boundaries, showing up for ourselves and others no matter what. The energies are asking us, supporting us, and pushing us, to live authentically. It might feel scary at first because we want to stay in the safe zone, but trust where you’re being led, and if you can, have fun and be curious on the journey.
You’re magic, keep going.

[00:00:00] Welcome everyone to the Your Energy First Podcast. I’m your host, Emily Marie, and it is such a pleasure to have you here to talk about all things your energy.
Hello everyone. Welcome back to the podcast. It. Such an honor to get to. Space with you and co-create with you because that is what we are doing here. And today’s episode, , it’s so funny because I, I have a list, you know, these ideas come to me and I get so excited about all these things we’re gonna be talking about and sharing on this podcast.
A lot of it having to do with your intuition and your spirit guides and your spirit team. And then of course, I hold space for energy activations. and [00:01:00] anybody on this earth is an activator in some way. My intention is to do my own energy healing and then of course be a facilitator or hold space for someone else’s, always for the highest good of all involved.
So I just wanna make sure that I’m crystal clear that even though I’m holding space for these activations, by you having your own intention, to, let’s say, be on the receiving end, or to be a participant or a co-creator, you’re empowered. And so that makes this, you, me, us an even playing field. So the guides are just, they’re piping in and they’re using this example
They’re like, when you go to a restaurant, you choose which restaurant you go to, and then you look at the menu and then you choose what you want on the menu, and then maybe you make variations to it. Maybe you send it back . [00:02:00] So activations same, same, right? But of course we don’t look at the restaurant owner or the chef or the host or the waiter or, and think, oh, you know, you’re, you’re better than I am.
And I say all of this because in the spiritual community, in the broader spiritual community, I see a lot of. Of it. It’s that grew culture and it’s not a style that has ever felt. It always just kind of feels icky, doesn’t it? I mean, it feels icky and it doesn’t, it doesn’t make logical sense to me. You know, one of the things that guides always share with me is energy follows the logic, and logically it does not make sense that we have GR anymore.
Especially when it comes to energy healing. If you think about it and you think about the individuals who have been spiritual leaders, I’m thinking about Mother Teresa [00:03:00] or Jesus or the Dalai Lama or Buddha. They practiced. What they taught, they were teachers, in my opinion, and they taught so much by living it out and in, and to me, when I read about the actions of their teachings, it’s very much an all-encompassing, all-loving, everybody can do this
Yet different books and teachings tend to spiral it into something that’s not that way. Right. So, , it’s important that we look at these activations as you know, you can say, does this activation feel good for me right now? Does it feel true for me right now? Should I table it? Um, and now the guides are kind of coming in and they’re like, psh.
They’re like, does it feel good? Does it not do it? If it doesn’t, , they’re like, they don’t want us to be too serious about it either. Which I kind of like that. When it comes to gurus, one of the things that I think about is I make this my career. [00:04:00] How there are, there’s a way to present yourself when you’re teaching something like this topic, and spirituality can be a woman of a dumpster fire because we’ve been taught so much.
About like the haves and the have nots and you take a look at a lot of religions, you’re not gonna hear me dump on religion. Um, because I think religion actually has a place for people. Are there negative aspects to religion? Absolutely. I think there’s actually positive aspects as well. And it’s not for me, even though I went to Catholic school, kindergarten through college, , um, I actually know some people who are still practicing religion and it really works for them and.
It’s just not anything that I am ever gonna dog. Um, am I still recuperating from my Catholic guilt and a lot of the strict [00:05:00] rules I was brought in? Absolutely. Do I want to raise a family with those same rules? I don’t. But if we take a look at that culture, Where you have pastors and priests and whatnot, this sort of lead, um, it’s a little bit hierarchical, right?
It’s, it used to be way back in the day that, oh, those people were the direct connection to God, right? Where we all know that each of us is divinely connected to source and it’s important that we think about. When we look at different teachers, you know, I always say we need to have multiple spiritual practitioners or mentors or energy intuitives or energy healers that we work with because everyone.
Has had different life experiences and each of them has alchemized those experiences into a medicine [00:06:00] and no one’s life experience is the exact same, so therefore, , it really helps when we learn from different people. So I’m a huge fan, a huge fan of learning from different people. Um, leaning on different practitioners at certain times, and you know, there have been ti I’ve gone through some really dark periods in my life.
and the practitioners that I work with were always making sure that they held their own space and their own light, and I think really they, well, of course they did that for me. They do it for all their clients, but it just really helps you. Stay in your own, on your own path, on your own journey that’s fully aligned with your source, right?
And it’s important. Guru culture’s tiring to me. Could you imagine like who would wanna come in nowadays and say, Hey, I’m your next, you know, [00:07:00] spiritual guru. I mean, you would get no sleep, . And who doesn’t love, you know, naps and rest and to be able to take time off. I mean, it just sounds like too much of an exhausting responsibility and it’s definitely not the direction the earth plane is headed right now.
It’s very, very, very much headed into this. Individualized, empowered state of being. And then we build that. We facilitate that amongst our loved ones, amongst friends, our family, our community. We can even foster these relationships with coworkers, and it’s so important that we do that. Because then you can actually live and breathe and be yourself while connecting with people in a way that’s beyond just the physical and that’s beyond just the mind.
I’m gonna give you an example. So obviously I’ve dove in deep on my journey. I think it was. back in my twenties [00:08:00] actually, when I really started saying, you know, there’s a big part of me that’s missing. I remember I was sitting in my car, I was on my way to an appointment and um, I was, I was almost shaking and I just felt so, Out of body, and so not myself, even though I didn’t know who I was, but I was like, how do I feel like I’m so tired, so exhausted, I feel like I’m missing something.
I’m like missing the boat of my life and I couldn’t figure out. Why? Because I had done all the right things. I’d gone to school, I’d gotten education, I had gotten a job. I was successful at that job, whatever. That’s what success used to mean, right? I also let myself go because I was just performing in a very masculine world and it was rough, and when I think about.
How all of this developed and all of it came to be, it took me decades. I mean, [00:09:00] I, I don’t know how much I’ve shared on this podcast, , I’ve already forgotten, but I’ve seen and perceived energy since I was a kid, and I can tell you that when I began being more aware and conscious of the fact that there’s this energetic side to myself, some people would call it a spiritual awaken.
I am a little bit looser than that as far as, I don’t like a lot of terminology with this stuff because what I’ve come to find is everyone’s energetic experience and spiritual experience is so unique that calling it a spiritual awakening is almost like saying, I don’t know, it’s like one small. Piece of the pie.
You can have your, you know, your energetic journey looks like so many different things. And I look at how I step by step so slowly, do step backwards or, or two steps forwards, 18 step backwards and slowly over time, I would work with the people in my life, not work with the people in my [00:10:00] life, but I would talk to.
My friends, my family, the men that I dated about this journey I was going through, and people were supportive and on board, or they were like, I’m not ready for this. Yes, and chances are you might be the one person in your family who feels this way and you just don’t really feel like there’s other people in your family yet who have opened up to this.
And it’s kind of a crappy feeling. You know? It’s a little bit, it kind of makes you feel like you’re alone. . And what I will tell you is as you continue to do your light and you continue to do your work, you are holding this vibration for your family, for your loved ones. And there will be people who, um, come to this with you.
I wanna say rise up. But that makes it sound like again, it’s the haves and the haves nots. And that’s not the case. It’s more just, um, [00:11:00] you know, you will find that people will shift and evolve. You’ll be surprised, you know, Definitely gonna be frustrating at times. You’re gonna be like, why is this person moving so slow?
I’m doing so much internal work. Would you catch up with me already? ? But over time, you will build a comradery with loved ones, with friends, with coworkers, with family who are also, let’s say, Connecting to their light in their own way doing this work, and you will be able to have conversations with them.
With my friends now and with my family members, I can say, okay, what is your gut saying about this? Like, what’s your intuition saying about this? Because of course, when someone comes to us for help to solve a problem, the first thing we do is we go to our mind. Well, have I experienced that before? I haven’t.
This is how I avoided, you know, a terrible situation. And we give people the best advice, but instead, my friends and family now [00:12:00] pretty much just sort of like, okay, we just know we’re gonna operate from our gut when . Emily asks me a question, , and I also ask them to, oftentimes the reason I’m asking them is because I just want validation for my own intuition, and that is the healthy community and world we’re all subconsciously and consciously striving for.
And that’s why I think guru culture actually had a place at a. , and that’s a story for another time. I don’t think it’s a very interesting one, but now it only makes sense that you and I learn from different people, experience different, um, meditation practitioners and, you know, different spiritual teachings, different energetic teachings, and that you, yours.
Self integrate these things. And when I say alchemize, that’s when you learn something, you learn an energetic tool, and then you try it on for size, you try it on yourself. [00:13:00] That’s you literally making magic in this world. And alchemizing is also when we transform, you know, when we heal an aspect of ourself and um, bring it into a new, that’s alchemizing too.
It’s a really beautiful thing. And that’s how we’re meant to live, you know, in this world. And. Society where there are people we can rely on, we can go to and say, Hey, you know, I know you’ve got your light in check to a degree as best we all can, right? Will you hold space for me while I share this? Will you tell me what your gut says?
And what’s really beautiful about this is number one, you don’t have to pay to go to an expensive guru , number one cuz they’re busy anyway. And number two, you actually don’t, you’re not expected. , you know, God, the universe divine, does not expect you to always be in this perfect place. You know, someone said to me the other day, like, I remember, I forget.
How they put it. But I was like, oh. I said no. I said like, I’m not this calm [00:14:00] all the time. And he looked at me, he’s like, really? Like, excuse me, . I said, do you really think that I’m just always this chill and calm? No. I get road rage and I, you know, have my hormones rage, and, and you know, I get triggered and all those things.
So we’re all meant to be human and we’re all meant to be in process, be it. Enjoy. When we’re riding those good waves in life or when we’re deep in the throes of healing or anywhere in between and be in our light and hold space for one another, and that’s how it’s meant to be. That’s the supportive element and supportive aspect that I see our culture.
That’s so weird. I just said our culture and spirit just said our unity and what they showed me is how obviously we’re heading towards a more global. Culture now, not to freak anybody out, you know, I mean the Italians will still have their Italian dishes in different regions and same [00:15:00] with the Germans and other parts of the world.
Um, but just meaning from more of a mindset perspective. And on that note, we are going to get. This activation is actually for the throat chakra. And it’s funny because when I was holding space for this podcast, I was ready to talk about something else. spirit was very gently holding this energy of, no, this needs to be this throat chakra activation.
And I was like, okay, well can I get into word in edgewise beforehand, ? Cause I really wanna get off my chest, this whole guru thing. And I would love to hear what each of you think about this too. So you folks have sent me some great emails sharing your story, giving me your perspective, and I value it. And one of these days I will get, my Pisces brain will get organized enough that I wanna share some of these things and talk about them with you on the podcast cuz I think it’s important.
[00:16:00] Because we’re building a community of people that wanna be empowered in their light and have their own experiences and share it with others. Okay, so we are going to get into this activation. It is a throat chakra activation and . So funny because spirit’s taking me directly to the back part of our. So often when we think of our chakras, we think of the front part and they’re bringing me to the back part.
Um, we’re gonna be dealing with all fronts, but the first thing I am going to have you do is just relax and take a deep breath and energy healing can happen. Anywhere, under any circumstances, in any space and time. So I just ask that wherever you are, if you can’t be comfortably at home with your eyes closed or somewhere safe, with your eyes closed, if you’re driving, just be smart about this.
So, [00:17:00] okay, this is the throat chakra healing activation, and the first thing you’re gonna do is take a breath in and as you do, just notice where your breath goes
And just pay attention to your breathing right now.
And on your next inhalation, let it fill up your lungs and gently release when it feels right.
We are going to. Clear and settle your. We [00:18:00] are going to give it some grounding as well. This activation has already started. Spirit’s showing me like little fireworks in the throat, sparks, maybe not fireworks. Maybe you perceive something different. And we’re gonna start by just sensing into your inner light, and we’re just gonna acknowledge it so you can say to yourself or out loud, hello to your inner light.
You have further activated this clearing and grounding of your entire energy field. And next we’re gonna say, I set the intention that any energy that is in my energy field that is not for my highest good
is released and dumped immediately.[00:19:00]
How’s that for alkalizing?
Now just imagine or feel or sense into your inner light. And next say, I set the intention for clearing and rebalancing of my throat, chak.
And. For my highest good[00:20:00]
imagine. Ball of energy that is now rolling around in your throat and it actually has a little bit of fiery energy to it. And as it’s moving around, maybe you notice that it’s growing.
Maybe you notice where it’s moving to.
And this blue fiery energy is clearing up the debris.
It’s clearing up old misaligned reactions, verbal and non-verbal. That you have on a regular basis,[00:21:00]
this fall of energy begins to widen and get bigger.
And as it does, so it is realigning with your third eye a clear path of what you know to be true for sure,
and how you share and express yourself.
this energy is getting bigger and bigger, and it’s actually moving. Through your head and expanding through your heart, and it’s actually become golden and almost this iridescent bright healing light.[00:23:00]
This new energy is helping you feel safe in expressing needs that have been very deep within you and that you’ve never experienced before.
Spirit saying you are deserving of these things.
Your voice, your words.
Your jokes and your wet[00:24:00]
are a calculated part of this universe, of this great equation on this earth, and it is a gift and a blessing to all of us that you are. And that you are taking these motions and these activations to further bring this aspect of you into this world.
We are grounded and surrounded by light healing energy as the rema, the remainder of your energy,
as the remainder of your energy opens up and [00:25:00] expands.
As your throat chakra releases reorganizes
and re presents itself to the world the rest of your energy. Is doing the same.
Maybe you can feel how far your energy goes.
Maybe you can sense into this expansion that your energy is doing.[00:26:00]
There are specialists of the light helping your energy to recalibrate.
Helping your energy to have awareness and a steadiness in this.
Take a gentle breath in. Let your belly out. Maybe your shoulders relax a bit more. And lean into this expansion and enjoy it.
Know that you are safe because you are in your light and you are connected to your light.[00:27:00]
Thank you for bringing more of you. Your energy and your light into this world. As always, it’s an honor to share this space with you. I look forward to connecting with you over email and in the dms, and as always, please feel free to share with someone you think you’d like to develop that connection with.
Build out this light community of yours, . Until next time, I wish you all the best from my. To yours.
