Today on the show I have Heather and Timmi from Energy Muse. This episode is for my woo woos, alright. This episode is not going to resonate with everyone because everyone isn’t into crystals, but maybe if you have like one toe in the crystal land, listen up. I was really interested for myself of how other people use crystals because sometimes I’d think, “Oh people buy crystals because they’re just trying to be spiritual #ultraspiritual,” but it was really beautiful how these women, who’ve been into crystals before crystals were cool, educate people, demystify the concept of crystals, and give us simple examples of how to use crystals for results. They also share their personal journeys through using crystals.

They recently authored the book Crystal Muse: Everyday Rituals to Tune into the Real You.

In this episode, Timmi and Heather share:

  • How to slow down in the midst of running a business and a busy lifestyle.
  • What happens when we ignore our body’s exhaustion cues.
  • The importance of taking inventory of what fuels us, what depletes us, and identifying when we’re stuck in our stories.
  • Demystifying the use of crystals, how to choose them, and how to work with them.

What's up love the welcome back to the Hungry for Happiness podcast. You are listening to episode number 073 with Kylee and Clara from Love Rising. In this episode we talked about how to actually increase our bodies’ to the frequency of that worth where we know we can attract everything that we desire and why investing in ourselves is one of the bravest things we can possibly do. I remember going back to when I first started Hungry for Happiness. I hired a business coach that cost more money than I made that month and I so I went into a deficit month after month after month, and the only thing I could bet on was myself. It really taught me how strong and powerful I could be and I always use that as a reference when I'm either investing nor or taking big leaps of faith. It was such a powerful, powerful part of my life. We talked about connecting to our subconscious and really speaking to different parts of ourselves. I love this kind of work where we can really understand that even with with an inner child we have our 3 year old child that has its needs, we have our 9 year old, our 14 year, we have all of these different parts of us. We have our inner child, our evolved woman, our mind, our intellect. There’s so many parts of our system that’s communicating to us at various times and so we really go into how to listen, how to observe, and how to honor.

  • The importance of making time for things that truly make you happy.
  • Connecting to our subconscious and speaking to the different parts of ourselves.

This episode is very, very special to me. I had the honor of going to visit Andrew in his beautiful center in California here, and it's so incredible. I just feel so excited about sharing him with you because he is such a special person to me. I've been working with Andrew for about 2 years now, working on energy work. He is such a talented healer. What Andrew does, I can’t even explain it. He’s able to clear energy, move energy, really understand patterns and attachment, and really getting to the root of why we do what we do and why we are stuck in these behaviors and patterns that aren't serving us. He is just an absolute wizard. In this episode, we talked about how to truly access energy in our bodies, which is something that I know we talked about a lot about on the show, but the way that Andrew frames it is so beautiful and really allows us to dig into the part of us that feels calm, and feels safe. So Andrew had a near-death experience which really let him into this whole body of work. He didn't wake up one day, deciding to do this work. He was actually comedian. One day, he was surfing and he got smoked in the head with a surfboard, and he had a spiritual awakening. It's just such a beautiful story. He's such a grounded individual yet has this power to just heal, influence, and just be such a leader for oneness and wholeness.


About Andrew


At the age of 32, a surfboard bashed into Andrew’s head when he was out surfing one day. He was left unconscious in the ocean until a stranger pulled him out and saved his life. Andrew was never the same again. Andrew began to question his identity. He became incredibly present to the world in a way he never experienced before. Andrew took it upon himself to dive deep into healing and discovered his purpose.


In this episode, Andrew shares:


  • Learning to access safety in our bodies, so we can use it when fear arises within us.
  • How Andrew’s near death experience led him to become a healer.
  • How our childhood protectors have positive and negative impacts on our adult life.
  • How to acknowledge our protectors so they don’t control our experience.
  • How shifting our perception allows us to shift our energy.
  • The difference between true discernment and being in resistance.
  • Being intentional and intuitive with the types of coaches and healers you decide to work with.

I️ loved this interview. I absolutely love his energy, passion, dedication to his craft, how he views the world, and how he’s shifting his mindset consciously and intentionally in order to shift the energy in his body. What is beautiful about this practice of, “I’m going to intentionally changes my thoughts and I am going to feel the energetics of that happening in my body. By the energetics changing in my body, I create more thoughts with how I want to feel.” We talked about that a lot. It was a specific, cool conversation that we got into.
