EP 345: How To Love Yourself More in 2020 Part 2 

This is it, ya'll! It's the wrap up episode for the EMBODIED Self Love series.

There were some listener questions about boundaries that I didn't get to last week, I'm answering those in this episode. And aside from that, I want to spend this last episode on self love anchoring in what we've discussed so far and tying it all together.

And I want to leave you with some reminders and a prayer. 

There’s no going back after this.

If you’ve listened to the whole series, you’ve been activated towards self love in a direction you can’t slide back from.

You may have better days than others, but there is a higher understanding now, your new standards have been activated, along with your worthiness, acceptance and everything else we discussed here.

You can’t forget what you heard about self respect. It’s in you now.

You’re aware.

You’re willing.

And of course you are capable.

Here is the prayer  I would like to cover you in - I pray that from this day forward self love is a new set and return point for you - a new home frequency, even if it’s a little shaky right now… everything that stands tall and strong requires its foundation to be built, and that’s what we’ve done here. You are love in a body. You are worthy of love - from yourself, from life and from others. And you are already loved more than you know. May you feel this, know this and live this… every single day for the rest of your lifetimes. Amen. 

In the eighth episode of the EMBODIED Self Love series we discuss:

[5:42] My prayer for you for this day forward[6:44] A mantra about self love[8:55] Why you need to develop a practice around self love[12:27] How self love assists in trauma healing[17:18] Claiming your part in the revolution[18:30] How to deal with a rude family member[25:08] Why boundaries have to be flexible and agile[32:21] What the next mini series will be centered around

About the EMBODIED Podcast with Elizabeth DiAlto 

Since 2013 I’ve been developing a body of work that helps women embody self love, healing and wholeness. We do this by focusing on the four levels of consciousness - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

In practical terms this looks like exploring tools and practices to help you  tune into the deep wisdom of the body and the knowing of the heart, which I believe are gateways to our souls. Then we cultivate a new relationship with our minds that allows the mind to serve this wisdom and knowing and soul connection, rather than override it, which is what many of us were taught.

The show runs in seasons now and this season we’re focusing on my EMBODIED Self Love Framework.

We’ll be looking at Self Awareness, Self Knowledge, Self Acceptance, Self Trust and Self Respect - with a bonus episode on Boundaries as well.

If you’ve been doing self help or spiritual development work for a while, these are the types of foundational things that often people overlook in pursuit of fancier concepts that often aren’t practical or sustainable. Here, we will focus on building these strong foundations so you can honestly and thoroughly embody self love.

EP 344: Boundaries and Self Love - How They Go Hand In Hand 

This is episode 7 in an 8 episode series on Self Love. 

This episode is all about boundaries and what it has to do with self love. Specifically, how boundaries are an expression of all the components of my EMBODIED Self Love Framework:

Boundaries are a responsible way of engaging with what you can control in a healthy, useful way.

Boundaries evolve over time, when you first start setting boundaries, they may be more like barries, it’s ok, over time your boundaries will become both rock solid and without you having to be rigid or militant about it.

Above all else boundaries are rooted in kindness, compassion and are meant to give you permission to live a joyful, love-filled life.

Now, I can hype up boundaries all day but we all know, they're challenging. So in today's episode I offer a lot of context and perspective on boundaries.

Here's what I covered:

  • The importance of having boundaries with yourself
  • How boundaries are an opportunity to teach people how to treat us
  • Navigating saying yes when you mean it and no when you mean it (this is especially hard for recovering codependents and people pleasers!) 
  • How to deal with boundary violations and enforcing your boundaries with people who don't respect them
  • Energetic boundaries

 

...and more

 

In the seventh episode of the EMBODIED Self Love series we discuss:

[6:14] How people are really different right now

[7:23] How setting boundaries evolves over time

[10:01] What happens to us when we don’t set boundaries

[14:10] My experience of starting over from scratch on social media

[16:59] Examples of boundaries you could set up for yourself

[19:39] Having boundaries around certain types of people

[25:15] Saying “no” when you mean no and saying “yes” when you mean yes

[30:40] Why you should pay attention to the word “should”

[35:27] How boundaries isn’t about being rigid or policing people all the time

[37:27] What having boundaries will do for you

[40:25] What energetic boundaries is and why they’re important

EP 343: Learning To Respect Yourself - Keys To Self Respect 

We are getting into the last part of the EMBODIED Self Love Framework in this episode - Self Respect.

Self respect is where the other four parts of the EMBODIED Self Love Framework get integrated.

When you are more self aware you discover what you need to know, when you know yourself better,  you can accept yourself more, when you are coming from self awareness, knowledge and acceptance, it's easier to trust yourself and when you're doing all four, self respect just makes sense.

In this episode you'll hear me talk about:

  • How you treat and speak to yourself
  • How to not abandon yourself
  • How to use the discernment we talked about during self trust to respect yourself through who and what you prioritize
  • How self respect helps to dissolve people pleasing

...and more

In the sixth episode of the EMBODIED Self Love series we discuss:

[6:47] How people pleasing can be alchemized through self respect

[8:37] Why you need to honor yourself 

[11:45] Why you should reserve the right to change your mind

[14:46] What compassion really is 

[16:27] Anchoring into your truth and how this alignment will be meaningful to you

[17:36] Why you should steer clear of self abandonment 

[21:39] Indicators of self abandonment to watch out for

[23:41] Being more intentional about who and how your loving

[24:01] Reflection questions to ask yourself around self respect

[30:20] Why it’s important to acknowledge how different we all are

EP 342: Building Self Trust - How To Trust Yourself 

I have been teaching about self trust for over seven years now and for this episode, the self trust teaching wanted to come through a bit differently. No doubt, the reason is that trust is harder when tragedy and trauma are rampant because we get pulled into the WHY question? It doesn’t make sense. And it’s not supposed to. 

And during these current times we're living through there's a lot of that.

So we question a lot of valid things but can get overly distracted by them. This is why we need to ‘"insource” more than we "outsource" and strengthen our direct connection to the Divine (God, Source, Universe, etc) --and that is the part of the teaching I had to integrate more deeply into today's exploration of self trust

The only intermediary we need is our soul. 

In today's episode I cover:

  • How we build trust within ourselves similarly to how we build trust with others.
  • Why we need self trust if we hope to have self love
  • The difference between judgment and discernment
  • How to know which part of yourself to trust, and how to practice self trust when you feel conflicted
  • Big questions people face around self trust like - how to know the difference between fear and intuition, how to know when it's our ego talking, or our trauma or wounds
  • Some universal truths you can choose to place faith in if you want that will help cultivate trust more easily

...and more

I get much deeper into the nuance of these things in the EMBODIED Self Love Mini Course - so if you are working on self trust and want the extra support - check it out here.

In the fifth episode of the EMBODIED Self Love series we discuss:

[4:07] How trust has been an integral part of my body of work as it’s evolved[5:31] How it takes time to develop self trust[7:22] Why you can’t separate self trust from trust in the divine[9:56] Examining what part of yourself your trusting vs. not trusting[12:26] How fostering a broader trust in the divine will help your self trust[14:58] One of my biggest mantras during some of the hardest times of my life[17:15] How trusting yourself helps you trust other people[20:40] Minding your own business and not inserting yourself in other people’s business[24:18] Cultivating more energy to be more trusting, open to things that are worthy of you [25:35] How trust requires surrender and the ability to let go[27:44] Considering how your choices might impact other people and the world around you[31:03] Why you shouldn’t hold yourself to impossible standards around things you couldn’t have known[31:24] Working through the fear of trusting yourself when criticism is present [33:10] How fear blocks people’s ability to trust in themselves

EP 341: How To Accept Yourself - The Relationship Between Self Love and Acceptance 

How do you accept yourself?

Why is self acceptance important?

What does it feel like to have self acceptance?

These are some of the questions we're answering in today's EMBODIED Self Love series episode. 

We've already covered the first two principles of the EMBODIED Self Love Framework - Self Awareness and Self Knowledge - and now it's time for Self Awareness. 

In today's episode I cover:

  • Why we need self acceptance to have self love
  • The energetic difference between approaching things in your life from an accepting place vs an non accepting place
  • The difference between fighting against and fighting for things
  • How it's easy to accept things when they go well or feel good - but the real work is accepting things when times are taught or not going the way you want
  • The role of kindness, gentleness and forgiveness in self acceptance
  • How to accept things about yourself that you feel shame about
  • Specifically how to accept your body, as a woman, in a culture with so much programming around "what's ideal" 

...and more

In the fourth episode of the EMBODIED Self Love series we discuss:[3:12] Why I rearranged the framework as I was creating it[5:47] How you can’t have deep embodied love without acceptance[9:40] How 2020 has been an incredible training ground for self acceptance[12:54] Questions that are always asked during akashic record readings[15:23] Why you need to unlearn and discern to get self acceptance and fulfill your purpose[18:43] How self love allows you to respond with forgiveness and compassion[19:27] Why the topic of forgiveness can be triggering for many[22:44] How to accept things that you feel shame about[28:38] The topic of white fragility and how we feel fragile when shame is present[33:47] How I use mantras in my work and life[39:01] Breaking the harmful cycle around shame in your body[44:20] How I built practices and movement around loving, connecting and healing[46:18] Learning to appreciate your body for more than just how it looks

EP 340: How To Know Yourself - Why Self Knowledge Matters For Self Love 

How well do you really know yourself?

And why does self knowledge matter so much?

In order to do any of the work of EMBODIED self love, you really do need to know yourself.

You need to know things [for starters] like:

  • What’s ok with you and what’s not ok with you? 
  • What excites you what doesn’t? 

Life is cyclical. There are phases and changes, which means you should feel free to be someone different than you were yesterday. I always say, "I reserve the right to change my mind." And I can tell you from living that way it won’t always please others. But staying true to who you are moment to moment is a radical act of self love. 

Real, deep,EMBODIED self love requires ACTIONS behaviors, habits and STANDARDS! 

Self knowledge is the place where we tune into all of that. 

In today's episode I cover:

  • Values
  • Priorities
  • "The Power of the Pause" - which is a super helpful reflection technique to learn about yourself and increase your self knowledge in your day to day experiences
  • Aspects of the self and multidimensionality 
  • Various tools and systems like Human Design, Enneagram, Astrology and more that help you discover who you really are and how you're built - and discern between what is your conditioning and what is your truth
  • The four stages of learning

...and more

In the third episode of the EMBODIED Self Love series we discuss:

[2:41] Why you need to give yourself room to be who you are right now and room to become someone else[4:46] Why you don’t need everyone to like you[5:30] The 5 main values I use for discernment of everything in my life[7:34] Reasons why I often couple values and priorities together[10:48] Why you don’t have to take on other peoples priorities[12:15] Why I don’t fully subscribe to any one personality test or zodiac sign[15:07] What I realized about making impulsive and intuitive choices[18:41] Learning to cultivate internal authority [19:10] The aspects of you versus the whole you and an exercise you can do[23:38] Discovering what your actual truth is[28:03] Why I want you to know the value of self knowledge[31:15] Thoughts on why you should question everything

EP 339: Self Awareness Meaning - How To Be More Self Aware 

What does self awareness mean?

How do you improve self awareness?

Is self awareness a skill?

Is self awareness hyphenated?

These are the types of things people search for when it comes to the meaning of self awareness (that last one was included to be funny, but it's actually the number one search result - go figure!)

This is episode 2 in the EMBODIED Self Love podcast series and today we're getting into the first step in the framework - Self Awareness. 

Self awareness helps us relate to ourselves and observe how we are actually showing up in life.

It’s a consistent, mindful practice of observing and being honest with ourselves. It's not just about how we think and what our intentions are, it's also about the impact we’re having on others, ourselves, and how things are going through our experiences, behaviors and choices.

Self awareness means calling attention to yourself, with purpose. It’s not always easy or pleasant. Sometimes you won’t like what you see. But when you commit to observing yourself for the sake of knowing, trusting, accepting and respecting yourself, you can do it with more objectivity than scrutiny. Something I've been teaching my clients and students for years is that awareness comes before acceptance and acceptance precedes improvement. 

In today's episode I cover:

  • What self awareness has to do with self love
  • The gentleness and curiosity self awareness requires
  • Some questions self awareness helps you answer like:  Who am I being? and How am I showing up? 
  • How to be honest with yourself
  • How self awareness helps you to navigate when you're "feeling all the feels"
  • The difference between responses and reactions and how self awareness helps you get better at both 

In the second episode of the EMBODIED Self Love series we discuss:

[2:55] Why you can’t improve a thing before first accepting it[4:24] How a baseline level of self love will make the hard things easier[4:48] What self awareness truly is and what it helps you to recognize[7:08] The three things you want to start observing for self awareness[10:38] Engaging with “feeling all of the feels” to connect and speak with your embodied language[13:11] The differences between a response and a reaction[14:58] What it means to be flooded and my experience with this trauma response[16:53] Why you should avoid self deception[20:22] How self awareness is an ongoing, lifelong practice

EP 338: How To Love Yourself More in 2020 Part I 

Do you see people talking about self love all the time and wonder, "But how?"

Or get caught up in memes that sound smart or profound but don't get how to actually apply them?

That's how a lot of people approach self love - like it's a thing you will eventually attain if you just focus on it - but here in the EMBODIED Living world, we know it takes more than that. This is why people call me a practical mystic. I'm into all kinds of energy work, psychological study, archetypes, mythology and esoteric shit - AND!! We're still people. We need to be able to apply what we're learning, integrate it into our lives and actually use it to shift, change, grow, heal and evolve. 

This is the first episode in an 8-episode series where I'll be guiding you through my EMBODIED Self Love Framework. The framework will help you with self-confidence, embodiment,  real love, loving yourself, trusting yourself, accepting yourself, cultivating healthy love in relationships and so much more.

We'll take a really thorough look at what it means to have self love, how to develop self love, examples of self love, and why self love is so important. 

Self love touches so many areas of our lives when we actively engage in it. Like bell hooks teaches, love is something you do, it's a verb.

This first episode in the EMBODIED Self Love series covers:

  • Common self-love teachings and misconceptions that I don't agree with like: "You can’t love others until you love yourself." Or the flip side of that, "You won’t get the love you want until you love yourself."
  • How we learn to love by being in relationship and self love is about developing a relationship with ourselves.
  • The mass confusion of what love is and what it is not; this includes how a lot of our messaging and examples are rooted in codependency, not love. 
  • An overview of what the rest of the series will cover: Self Awareness, Self Knowledge, Self Acceptance, Self Trust, Self Respect...and then something I know this audience loves - a whole entire episode on boundaries. And not just healthy boundaries with others, but also how to have healthy boundaries with yourself. 
  • Wrap up - where I'm at on my own self love journey right now. 

 

In the first episode of the EMBODIED Self Love series we discuss:

[2:52] The focus of this season around the EMBODIED self love framework that I developed[3:12] The 5 principles of my framework[7:11] Common self love teachings that I don’t agree with and misconceptions about them[10:13] How developing self love isn’t just a state [11:15] Why you should be curious when you have resistance to something[14:04] The importance of self awareness and being mindful of how you’re showing up[15:19] How self knowledge answers the question: Who am I and how am I built?[17:27] Why you need gentleness for yourself and others[19:13] The reasons that self trust is critical for following your inner truth [20:15] How you can’t have love without self respect[21:05] Where I am at on my own self love journey[24:25] A talk I participated in that inspired the Embodied Self Love Mini Course

EP 337: On Death and Dying with Kelly Watkins 

Last week, an acquaintance of mine, Kelly Watkins reached out on Instagram to share a post with me about how she'd be diagnosed with incurable blood cancer and asked if I'd be willing to have a conversation about death and dying on the podcast.

She herself has worked on both sides of life as a nurse in labor and delivery, a hospice nurse, and then outside of western medicine as a death doula, so she has a lot of perspectives to share.

Of course, I said yes and this episode is that conversation.

One of the things we both noticed about midway through the conversation was that we could have gone deeper and tapped into more of the things that people prefer not to talk about AND we felt a sensitivity around the current climate around COVID-19 and the Coronavirus and the mortality and death we're about to be confronted with across the globe - so we trusted that where we did go was perfect.

A few of the threads we pulled in our chat were: being a mother of five under quarantine right now with just one of her babies, what matters most to her right now and why, definitions of grace and the presence of grace in her current experience and experiences she's had with clients and patients over the years, death as a calling, how life and death are connected, how important it is to talk about death, how we need to find ways to be more comfortable with this and more.

As I'm feeling more compelled to approach interviews this year - we just hit record and went until we felt complete, which was about 90 minutes.

I hope you'll be transformed and moved by this tender conversation, share it with loved ones and use it to spark your own inquiries and explorations of your relationship to death and dying and any shifts you may want to make around that.

Big love,

E

EP 336: Divesting from Perfectionism with Jess Fish 

This is not the typical conversation about perfectionism, y'all, and I am warning you upfront, that you'll probably want to listen to it at least three or four times.

Today my guest is my dear friend Jessica Fish, who is also (and she would likely not own up to this...) a genius.

Her big truth was around the importance of community and external affirmation.

From there we talked about practicing radical encouragement in your relationships and how we cannot rely on self-regulation alone. We talked about the myth of "inconveniencing people," how we need to be honest about our bandwidth and over-giving tendencies, and all the offshoots of perfectionism like overachieving, having unreasonably high standards for ourselves, and the trap of "high performance."

She also explained how all of this keeps us in individual mindsets which keep us upholding dominant cultural narratives and norms.

She shared an exercise with us that she uses in her Divesting from Perfectionism workshops that literally changes people's lives on the spot, and she walked me through the fantasy of the "Ideal Self" that many of us have, and how it harms us.

We also explored what being in community with people who will hold you compassionately accountable and how we can all leverage the things we're really good at as our contribution to dismantling systems of oppression.

It's a juicy and meaty conversation.

Enjoy!
