EP 328: The Embodiment Episode
This is episode three of a six week podcast series I do every year called Journey into the Wild Soul. It’s FILLED with gems to explore your inner world to help you have a better outer world experience. (And that is putting it very, very mildly.)
I’ve also opened up a free pop-up Facebook group to get some quality time together as a Wild Soul community before 2020 starts and we get all “hyped up” about a new year. I hope you’ll join me and bring your friends!

The Journey into the Wild Soul is about reflecting on the year and perhaps years previous, so that we can leave the past in the past as we transition into a new year. As well as to invite you to consider if how you’ve been going about your growth, healing and transformation are really effective or if it’s more performative, obligatory, inefficient, ineffective, or just a distraction.
Our theme this year is WHOLENESS and in this second episode, I’m diving into all things embodiment from concepts to practices to the benefits, why it works, how to develop discernment and speak your body’s unique language of the senses and more.
If you didn’t hear the first two episodes, that’s ok, you don’t have to go back and listen to it before diving into this one unless you want to. Here are the links if you do: https://untameyourself.com/326

“The larger implication of embodiment is revolution.”
“When we disembody, ‘culture wins.’”
“You have got more power to affect things than you think you do.”
“Every woman deserves to feel safe and at home in her body.”
“When you’re connected to your body, you’re much less likely to bypass or bullshit yourself.”
“It’s important to get out of your head and into your body so that you make better choices upfront and these are choices that are aligned with your truth and your power.”
“By attuning to your ‘no’, you’ll get to clearer ‘yes’s’ eventually.”
“I firmly believe that embodiment is the absolute most critical key to healing and sustainable wellbeing.”
“You are a vast and dynamic being with many parts all of which are worth knowing and integrating.”
“Observing requires two things: curiosity and self-awareness.”
“Being curious about yourself is the key to healing and living a more embodied life filled with purpose, joy, wisdom and truth.”
“Your discomfort sits right next to your potential just like your grief and sorrow sit right next to your joy.”
“Feeling into your senses, states of being and emotion is a gift, not something to be afraid of.”
