Hello, and welcome to the Sea Goddess Healing Arts monthly Soul Broadcast!
Our collective intention is to share with you topics and information relevant to current energies, the Healing Arts, tools and modalities, and whatever our Souls are wishing to share with you every month.
This month's theme is Integration & Embodiment.
We hope you love and find this monthly offering helpful, and a great resource in your own healing journey. Thank you for tuning into your hearts and our collective Soul space.
The Integration Station
by Mandee Elam
(Medicine Woman of the Soul/Co-Founder and GIC at Sea Goddess Healing Arts)
It's literally that, a stopping point. A choice between realms, space, time and dimensions. Sliding door moments where you have an opportunity to integrate the things you've learned. These moments are whispers of intuition and opportunities that say:
"hey… didn't we learn about this?
What did we say we were going to do this time around?
Do I want to choose that?
Do I want to try something different?
Do I want to do something that's the same because it's more comfortable and currently feels safer?"
There's no judgment either way. Sometimes we really need to rest, listen to our vessels, and stay in our comfort zone. Other times our souls pull us forward into making a choice that will help us shift our perspective. Or encourage us to practice a new tool and see how it feels. We can't constantly be in bloom. Sometimes we need to use what we've learned for significant periods of time and allow them to integrate. See ourselves, our views, our ways, through many different moon cycles to see how much we've integrated. Decide what works for us and what doesn't work for us. Integration is a potent portal to your soul. Allow yourself to stop at the integration station whenever you can. Be conscious and intentional about it when you can. You can't have integrity without integration.

Looking UP in Awe and Wonder
Season 2 Finale Episode of Becoming Chiron
by Ursula Duffy
(Co-Founder and GOO at Sea Goddess Healing Arts, Professional Astrologer and Certified Aromatherapist/Founder, Ursa Alchemy)
The Cosmic vibe of the last week in May and the first week in June was heavily influenced by the planet Saturn. So was the Sagittarius Full Moon on Saturday night (6/3). Have you experienced your Saturn Return yet? The first one occurs around age 30, the next one at age 60, and so on every 30 years. Saturn asks us to do the work and take responsibility. I discuss the integration and embodiment of the recent Mercury Retrograde, the first Eclipse Season of 2023 and many of the lessons and growth of the last two years. Tune into Episode 24: Sagittarius Full Moon and Chiron in the Twelfth House to learn about integration, especially in relation to the planet Saturn.
I share many personal stories about my own integration in this episode and included a collective reading at the end. Enjoy!

Lexi co-teaches Shadow Twerk with Mandee, and oftentimes Shadow Work is a big part of our healing and the integration and embodiment process.

Shadow Twerk sessions are recorded; if you are unable to join live on Wednesday evenings, you are encouraged to register anyway and join the Twerk to do the work at your own leisure with the recordings.
Lexi offers a variety of Readings, Soul Space, Lymphatic Drainage instruction and an Herbal Apothecary Experience. She also leads Goddesses in Recovery, which is a place for Goddesses in recovery, and Goddesses who support those in recovery, to come together, find support, healing and empowerment through holding sacred space and being part of a community of like-minded badasses. Goddesses in Recovery is generously offered by Lexi free of charge and meets every other Sunday at 3:33 pm (EDT) via Zoom. The next session is this Sunday, June 11th.
Current Thoughts On Embodiment & Integration
by Jess Himmel
(Modern Day Mary Poppins, Intuitive Artist (Orgone Original Works) & Energy Reader/Medium)
- Card Meaning -
"The frequency of Integration supports our embrace of every aspect of ourselves, allowing what we perceive as positive and what we perceive as negative to harmonize in a balanced symphony of life."
"Embodiment & Integration"...We may hear these words often and know they are important and necessary to our optimal wellbeing, but do they mean? What exactly does it mean to integrate, or to embody something?
The dictionary defines them as:
These definitions sound simple enough, however to actually achieve them, usually isn't so simple a task. For me, the biggest question...is always HOW?
For example, say we have an A-HA moment or learn something new that inspires us. We then want to work that experience, information, and/or feeling into, (or integrate) it into our daily way of being...this integration is the process by which, eventually, embodiment occurs.
The process is unique for everyone, as we are all unique individuals. However, a common thread is TIME. Integration and Embodiment take time. There is no exact timeline for any of it to happen, but the "in between" period where nothing seems to make sense...or "Stunned Zombie" phase as I call it, is absolutely necessary. There's really no way around it, if you truly seek to achieve embodiment.
Inside the "in between'', is where the integration itself happens. When our internal world is rearranging itself, it can feel confusing. Ignoring, skipping or bypassing these crucial (and often uncomfortable and uncharted) steps will most definitely result in an imbalance. The imbalance will often manifest itself into your life, as the opposite of what you're trying to achieve. Doing the work is well worth it, I promise.
I, myself, am currently neck deep inside my own integration and embodiment process, after a recent birthday trip to Maine that opened up huge new doors for me, both internal and external.
As I feel myself finally, (slowly) moving from "Stunned Zombie", into whatever comes next, I am taking note of what has helped (and will continue to help) me personally work my way through. I can say with confidence, the number one thing to remember is to do your best at all times, to stay in the present moment. Easier said than done for sure, given the million tasks a day that we all have.
Below is a list of things I do to stay present, and a list of some crystals that help ground and calm my energy during times like these. My hope is that I can encourage, and help others who may be navigating something similar.
- Tips For Working Through An Integration Period/Staying Present -
• Breathing Deeply and Steadily
• Stretching and/or Yoga
• Salt Bath
• Being In Nature (usually barefoot for me)
• Listening To Music
• Dancing (I mean really dancing)
• Resting (without guilt)
• Listening To Your Body
• Accepting What Is (and what isn't)
• Accepting Yourself As You Are
- Crystals That Can Help The Integration/ Embodiment Process -
• Black Tourmaline
• Tiger's Eye
If anyone would like to hold space with me around this subject (or any other subject), I'm now offering readings through Sea Goddess Healing Arts. I'd love to work with you, and help add some ease to this Earth School situation we are all in. I hope this helps in some way, and hope to see you soon!
