In a recent episode of Nourish the Risk Takers, we had an inspiring conversation with Karina Blackheart, founder of KBH Enterprises and http://thecroneherself.com. In this episode, we delved into Karina’s journey of empowering women of all ages to access their big energy and take responsibility for their power, breaking free from the “good girl” rules that hold them back. We also discussed the importance of self-nourishment and unlearning thousands of years of conditioning, as well as the value of nourishing and supporting each other in our entrepreneurial journeys. So, let’s dive into this eye-opening and inspiring episode!
Meeting Your Whole Life and Embracing Your Energy
Karina emphasizes the transformative power of meeting your whole life and embracing your energy to face every aspect of life head-on. She highlights the importance of self-nourishment and granting ourselves permission to be the person we want to be. By letting go of the idea that we could be broken, we enrich our lives and empower ourselves to fully embrace our whole selves.
Big Crone Energy
We discussed the inspiring example of a security guard at a concert who fully embraced her role and had fun while still ensuring everyone’s safety. This display of “big crone energy” highlights the importance of enjoying life and being present in the moment, regardless of age or societal expectations. The conversation also touches on the freedom that can come with reaching a certain age and no longer being the center of attention, allowing for a more authentic and carefree expression of oneself.
Unlearning Thousands of Years of Conditioning
We explored the difference between looking out for each other and policing each other, particularly in the context of women’s interactions. Recognizing when help is genuine and when it is a form of control or enforcement of societal norms is crucial. We also discussed the process of unlearning ingrained behaviors and finding joy in embracing our true selves. Furthermore, we examined the significance of being patient with ourselves and others as we learn new skills and grow in our personal and professional lives.
In this conversation, we examined the importance of nourishing and supporting each other in our entrepreneurial journeys. We discussed the value of having an ongoing dialogue to better understand each other’s likes and dislikes, as well as the importance of finding different ways to communicate and learn from one another. We also touched on the importance of self-nourishment and knowing when to ask for help, as well as the challenges of receiving nourishment from others. Finding balance and maintaining a full well of energy is essential to better serve clients and ourselves.
Creative Energy and Archetypes
We dove into the creative process and how embracing big crone energy can lead to a powerful movement. The conversation highlighted the power of co-creation and how working together can bring ideas to life rapidly. We also discussed the importance of sovereignty and collaboration, emphasizing that being self-authoritative is not an excuse for disregarding others’ needs. The movement behind the Crone herself is explored, showcasing its archetypal, ancestral, and cross-cultural aspects, as well as the importance of nurturing and supporting risk-takers.
Celebrating Relationship Goals with Inter-generational Learning
We celebrated the power of inter-generational learning and the importance of nourishing relationships in our lives. By sharing experiences and personal stories, we emphasized the value of showing up for others and creating a supportive, non-competitive environment. Through moments of vulnerability and self-reflection, we foster deeper connections and break down barriers of shame and insecurity. By embracing the journey and celebrating each other’s successes and struggles, we cultivate a community where everyone feels welcome and valued.
