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

Embodied with Elizabeth DiAlto

Religion & Spirituality

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

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.
