Francisca Santibañez is an herbalist, ritualist, wellness guide, medicine maker, educator, artist and founder of Plant Spirit Talk. Francisca believes that plants have a divine purpose that is much greater than existing solely for human pleasure.

Plants heal, they teach you to be grounded in this earth instead of following divisive indoctrination, and they hold imprints from our ancestors; if you sit with them long enough, plants can lead you home. 

While in her work connecting with the divine through plant medicine. The plants themselves redirected Francisca to the work she does today which is more energetic and based on her ancestral wisdom and inheritance.  It was because of this ancestral work that I first started working with Francisca on my own ancestral healing journey which recently culminated in a life changing calling and trip to Puerto Rico.

For Suzanne Barr, one of North America’s most respected chefs, food has to be about more than just an incredible tasting dish; food is joy, it’s happiness, it’s comfort, it’s healing, and understanding where it comes from is part of being an active participant in the human experience. 

Suzanne’s book, My Ackee Tree is a book that looks back on the forty plus years of Suzanne’s life including being raised in Plantation, Florida and studying in places like New York, Hawaii and The South of France.

Chela Davison works with individuals to help them discover the call of their soul and make the meaningful impact they wish to see in their lives.

The core of Chela’s work is to help people meet their calling, discover what it is and develop the capacity to carry it out in the world. 

In Episode 392 Chela shares how her calling is evolving and how she is reckoning with that now, in the same way you may need to mourn when a role you’ve previously played no longer is sustainable in your current  life. Because let’s be honest, life changes and you need to learn to change with it. 

Life, like nature, has seasons, and when you try to operate in an “endless summer,” negating your Autumn, you can enter burnout and/or crisis. You’ll know if you are headed this direction because you might find yourself in the middle of self-sabotage or saying things like “I just want to burn the whole thing down.” 

Because life's complicated and multifaceted you might find various parts of your life in different seasons all at once.

  • [40:21] Signs you need to let go of something

Loving yourself is an all the time thing and in today’s episode I’m specifically reflecting on how to love yourself in 2022 after all we’ve been through.  Self-love can feel out of reach, especially in a world that actively feels like it’s falling apart. With a pandemic, wars,  hate crimes and what feels like growing violence in our communities, pursuing self-love may seem frivolous or overwhelming but in reality, pursuing self-love is the greatest thing you can do to tip the scales and bring peace to yourself and the world around you. 

Today I’m getting into my Embodied Self-Love framework of self-awareness, self-knowledge, self-acceptance, self-trust, and self-respect. The framework is designed to help you fully love your whole self, including your wild soul. It’s different from traditional self-improvement work because rather than teaching you that pieces of yourself are broken, I’m showing you how to love yourself from a place of knowing that you are whole and that not only are you not broken but in fact you can’t break. 

Rather than teaching you to do more, to be “better,” self-love shows you what it can feel like to fully embody your whole self; to live as a soul on this earth. 

When you love yourself in this way and  know you are  and whole, you can tap into the best version of yourself and from that place, show up the way you want to, not only for yourself but for your loved ones and your community. 

In Episode 391 we take a look at what self-love is, what the wild soul is and how your unique human design can give you clues to what your unique superpower is. 

My superpower is self-love and my mission is to help as many individuals as possible learn how to love themselves so that we can tip the scales and bring more healing to this world.

If you want to begin or deepen your self-love journey check out my  Self-Love Immersion. It starts June 13th. You can sign up at untameyourself.com/selflove

In episode 391 of the Embodied Podcast we discuss:

  • [1:37] showing up for yourself even when you aren’t feeling okay
  • [3:58] Elizabeth’s superpower is self-love and how she discovered that
  • [4:15] Secrets to “success” and what success looks like to Elizabeth
  • [5:21] what is the self-love framework
  • [5:38] applying the self-love framework to all stages of life
  • [8:18] why we don’t try to escape reality at The School of Sacred Embodiment
  • [10:23] Transmutation versus transfiguration - which one is better
  • [12:02] what soul truth feels like in the body

  • [16:12] what it looks like to embody self-love
  • [16:47] the difference between feeling broken vs. being broken

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.
