Known for her raw, honest, and nuanced approach to spirituality and the healing arts, Elizabeth DiAlto is an Embodiment Specialist, a Mystic, and host of the Embodied Podcast. In this episode we go deep into what it means to be embodied in the context of one’s spiritual path. She shares how embodiment goes beyond the physical, how nature and the land relate to embodiment, how your childhood qualities play a role in who you are today, and the importance of being rooted in the present and being fully aware of what you want.
Embodiment is not only getting out of your head and dropping into your body, but it’s also about dropping into your soul, in whatever way that manifests for you. Embodiment is a state of being that you can connect to through intuition.
“When you’re embodied, you can notice and name your sensations, emotions, and feelings states, and then on a deeper level, you can perceive your intuition and the presence of spiritual guidance and support. “

A native New Yorker of Puerto Rican and mixed-European descent, Elizabeth started her professional life in sales, then moved into health and fitness. In 2013 life finally called her to do her soul’s work and she founded what has now evolved into the School of Sacred Embodiment. Elizabeth is a true mystic and I’m lucky to call her my friend. She has an infectious sense of humour and laugh – hence there is a lot of laughing in this episode. And a lot of heart-searing truth.
