You don’t have to be a genius to know that the body manifests various forms of stress, imbalance, and trauma in the form of sickness, physical conditions, and plain old aches and pains. My guest today is my good friend, Elizabeth DiAlto. She’s learned a ton on her journey of self-healing and is on the show today to share how she was able to learn the process of connecting with her own body to both identify and heal the issues that were keeping her stifled and stuck. Be sure you take the time to listen to this conversation. There’s lots here to benefit you.
Hey, women! There is strength in you being soft and feminine!
So much of what’s out there for women is not REALLY for women. If you look at it carefully you’ll see that much of the junk being foisted on women is aimed at making them more masculine, more like men. That’s not what we need because it doesn’t fit who we are as women. Our feminine power, our soft and nurturing side is a strength that we need to rediscover and tap into in order to be who we were made to be in the world. My friend, Elizabeth DiAlto is on the show to help us understand how to take powerful steps in that direction.
Your imagination is a powerful tool that you need to learn to tap into.
There’s so much we need to be in the world women, and there’s a lot of conflicting garbage out there that distracts and misleads in the quest to step into our feminine power and truly BE women in the world. You hear all this “head” stuff – reason, logic, evaluation – there’s nothing wrong with it except that it’s only part of the equation. We need to realize that analysis is not the only tool in our toolbox as women. We can tap into the power of our own imaginations to envision greater things for ourselves if we will just listen to our intuition as women and be courageous enough to take the first step.

Getting out of a victim mentality begins by determining what to do now.
There are so many women who struggle because of things that have happened in their past. It’s understandable. Traumas of various sorts that are done TO us can hold sway for a long time. But when it turns toward a victim mentality, a victimhood that we constantly live in, that’s a dead end road. On this episode of SFT TV, Elizabeth DiAlto points out that we are all victims at one time or another – it’s part of life in this world. But the steps away from a victimhood mentality begin by knowing that those events that made us feel like victims are in the past and that we have the responsibility to do something different now. Find out more from Elizabeth about moving away from victimhood, on this episode.
Can a woman ever stop comparing herself to other women? Is it possible?
We all know the struggle of looking at other women and instantly comparing ourselves to them. Am I as pretty? Does my body look as good? Am I as witty, or smart, or capable, or energetic, or accomplished? Yuck! It’s a trap that leads to nowhere, fast! Is it possible to ever stop comparing? My guest on this episode points out that we may never be able to entirely stop comparing, but we CAN ask ourselves questions about WHY the comparison is taking place. What is it we are trying to get out of doing it, and what can we do to fulfill that need in a better, healthier way? Elizabeth DiAlto has great advice on this subject to share, on this episode of SFT TV.
