We will all discover pain in our lives. We must learn how we heal in order to heal.
I love today’s guest so much. Her name is Ahlea Khadro and she’s someone I consider a “pocket person” – meaning, we talk so often I feel almost as if she is in my pocket constantly and I adore her.
Her big truth was that rupture and repair are more important than being perfect.
From there we got into the undulations of life, the cycles of creation, the great dance of back and forth that we do constantly as we evolve and heal. We talked about resiliency and intention, especially as it relates to parenting.
Ahlea generously shared a lot about her experience as a single mother, of stewarding a being, from childbirth on, and how throughout these stages women are called upon to use skills they don’t always get to use, but absolutely have.
She talked about savoring the moments of peak intensity, some of the issues light polarization creates in New Agism and how we engage with ourselves during challenges.
This conversation was so juicy and we touched on so many healing topics, I can’t wait to hear what you take away from it.
Share, listen more than once, and enjoy!
From Ahlea Khadro
I discovered at a young age that I could “see into” other people’s bodies. I was able to connect with the stories that lie beneath the surface of a person. And with the innocence of a child, I often blurted out what I saw…it was a profound lesson for me that many people don’t want to hear what their bodies are trying to tell them (especially from a child).
As a young gymnast diagnosed with MD at the age of 12 I was cornered into translating my own story into a healing opportunity. My diagnosis and gift has taken me on a dynamic and rather unconventional adventure. From mainstream hospitals to the feet of yogic masters I have carved a far-reaching path that has allowed me to see new ways to heal the body and soul… and pepper the lives I touch with new perspectives.
My most recent journey as an author was inspired by my relationship with the amazing Louise Hay. As Louise’s health advisor and friend for over 15 years, we have had so much fun blending affirmations with practical and profound tips and exercises that create/support optimal health and happiness. Our work together inspired us to collaborate on my latest book “Loving Yourself to Great Health” with our co-author Heather Dane.
I live a vibrant and blessed life in San Diego where I run Soulstice, an Integral Wellness Center. I also love to play and garden with my human and furry family.

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 knowledge and soul connection, rather than override it, which is what many of us were taught.
The show runs in seasons now and this season we’re focusing on my EMBODIED Self Love Framework.
We’ll be looking at Self Awareness, Self Knowledge, Self Acceptance, Self Trust, and Self Respect – with a bonus episode on Boundaries as well.
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.
