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

Embodied with Elizabeth DiAlto

Religion & Spirituality

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

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. If you’re feeling it,"> subscribe to the show, and leave us a review wherever you listen from. You can also keep up with show updates and community discussion on">Instagram here.
