Has your relationship with your body kept you from embracing all that you are capable of?
As women, we receive the message that our bodies are shameful and even dangerous at a young age. We are taught not to trust our bodies and to tame them to others’ expectations.
In today’s episode, I share with you the name I’ve created for this experience:
The Sacred Body Wound
Almost every woman carries the Sacred Body Wound, and it impacts the way we treat ourselves and interact with the world.
Do you struggle with identifying and processing emotions and feelings?
Do you feel ashamed of your body?
Do you battle with an eating disorder or otherwise self-harm?
Do you avoid exploring your sexuality, or hyper-focus on diets and weight loss?
These are examples of the Sacred Body Wound at work, and it affects each woman differently.
Regardless of how this wound manifests in your life, its primary goal is to make you forget how sacred, miraculous, and wondrous your body is.
Combatting this wound plays a vital part in our paths toward embodied healing and self-liberation. And giving a name to this wound is the first step toward winning that battle.
Join me in today’s episode to learn more about The Sacred Body Wound and how to begin to heal it in your life.

Everything you’ve ever needed has always been inside of you, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to find.
Much of my work can be deep and confronting. The path toward embodied healing and self-liberation requires work!
But having fun has a place in healing as well.
After working with thousands of women over the past several years, I’ve developed a way of looking at our wild nature that is both fun and informative: The Wild Soul Archetypes.
The Wild Soul Archetypes help us to better understand and access the power that is inside each one of us.
These archetypes are energetic expressions that can be used for healing, self-discovery, growth, and reprogramming old paradigms, habits, and beliefs.
We naturally embody a particular Wild Soul Archetype (or several!) during different seasons of our lives. As we learn to identify and connect with each of them, we grow ever closer to experiencing wholeness and freedom.
The purpose of this episode is to provide a quick primer about the Wild Soul Archetypes before we dig deeper into them over the next several weeks.
I’m excited to help you unearth and reclaim what’s already inside of you. The six Wild Soul Archetypes are...
The Sovereign Queen,
The Warrior Goddess,
The Medicine Woman,
The Sacred Creatress,
The Divine Mother, and
The Erotic Priestess.
These archetypes represent the beautiful multi-dimensionality that exists in all women. Join me in today’s episode to learn which one you are currently embodying and how her wisdom can guide you in your journey toward embodied healing and self-liberation.

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.
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.
