I was running one of the Hungry for Happiness retreats here in San Diego and the whole topic of self-sabotage was hot tamales! So, I wanted to bring some of that onto the podcast and give you some insight into that because I feel we just love to sabotage ourselves. But here’s the thing, we don’t understand why we’re doing it. We don’t understand how it happens; we just do it. Then we feel like we’re worthless, weak, and we have no willpower and that’s actually not the case. In this episode, I’m going to be talking about why self sabotage happens in the first place, how to prevent it from happening, how we can get over having the fraud complex, how we can get over things like not being where we’re at, yet, and how to embody the frequency to attract what we want.


In this episode, I share:

  • Why we sabotage ourselves and how to prevent it from happening.
  • How to move through the imposter syndrome.
  • How to embody the frequency to attract what we want.

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.

  • How to slow down in the midst of running a business and a busy lifestyle.

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.


About Clara and Kylee


Clara + Kylee are both coaches on a mission to change the way women see themselves. Their mission in life and in their podcast, the Love Rising Podcast, is to help women wake up to the love inside of themselves through nourishing food, positive mindset, emotional fitness, and spiritual connection.

In this episode, Clara and Kylee share:


  • Practicing self-worth and feeling deserving of the life we want.
  • Why investing in ourselves is the most brave, healing thing we can do.
  • The importance of making time for things that truly make you happy.
  • Connecting to our subconscious and speaking to the different parts of ourselves.
  • Uncovering subconscious blocks in our systems.
  • How being firm in our boundaries is a form of self care.

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.

I loved interviewing Summer. She is a force in this space. She had so many interesting philosophies in how she explained what she does. We talked a lot about this place of neutrality with our bodies. Rather than body love as this place that we strive for, it’s about removing the body love or hate or anything and just not focusing on the body. I would really love to hear your thoughts on how you feel about this interview and let me know your stance. It might be something that makes you think, “Wow, that would be so helpful for me. I would love to hear more about that.” Of course we have the body positivity/body love movement, which is obviously telling us to love our bodies ( and there’s a large emphasis on that) I know for a lot of you, based on the feedback I’ve gotten, that feels really overwhelming because you’ve never known how to love your body so I think this interview is going to be really powerful for you.

She’s also the host of Fearless Rebelle Radio, a podcast dedicated to anti-dieting, body positivity and feminism.

In this episode, Summer shares:

  • How to accept our bodies at any weight.
  • How elements of self doubt and criticism become rooted in our belief systems.
  • Getting to a place where weight change and the way our bodies look doesn’t affect our quality of life.
  • How to feel more comfortable and lighter in your body without focusing on weight.

This conversation was absolutely incredible. What I love about this episode is that Glenn and I have very different approaches and there's not one approach that suits everybody, so I love bringing experts on that see things a little different than me, but I still so deeply appreciate how they support people. This conversation is all about overcoming binge eating as a male, so if you know any males in your life who struggle with this I invite you to send this podcast to them, how our brains become hijacked by binge eating foods, reptilian brain and survival mode, and we get into the scientific and psychological approach, which I really love.

Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and/or food obsessed individuals, Dr. Livingston spent several decades researching the nature of bingeing and overeating via work with his own patients AND a self-funded research program with more than 40,000 participants. Most important, however, was his own personal journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more light hearted relationship with food.

In this episode, Glenn shares: 

  • The correlation between struggling with food and other areas of life.
  • How our brains become hijacked by binge eating foods.
  • The easiest way to naturally cure food addictions. 
  • How to overcome feeling 'powerless' and out of control around food. 
  • Steps you can take to overcome urges to binge in the moment.

This conversation was so good. We talked about meditation and mindfulness as a tool to heal disordered eating. So often when people struggle with disordered eating they try to externalize an internal issue. It is so internal. It is a mental and emotional issue. So when we dig into the energetics of the body, meditation being just one of those tools, we’re able to truly get in our bodies and heal from within. You guys have heard me saying multiple times, “You have to feel in order to heal.” This is what this episode is all about.


About Sarah Anne Stewart

Seven months later, her father was declared cancer-free, and a spark was lit in Sarah that propelled her to dedicate her life to spreading the healings her family had discovered.


In this episode, Sarah shares:


  • What it was like watching her father heal his cancer through holistic nutrition.
  • The guilt and the shame of having an eating disorder even though she had a holistic upbringing.
  • How meditation and mindfulness improves our physical bodies.
  • Suffering from breast implant illness and having the courage to remove her breast implants.
  • How emotional food journaling has helped heal her relationship to food.
  • The fear of feeling hungry and how to appreciate the information our bodies are giving us.

In this episode, we talk a lot about the power of sexual energy and why a lot of women are disconnected from sex and their vaginas. We talk about removing the negative stigma sex has and how to connect back into your body. We offer light tips on how to remove blocks around sex, so we’re not healing sexual trauma in this episode, but we are providing people who have shame around sex tools to be able to truly get honest with themselves and reconnect to their bodies.

I️ absolutely loved getting to know Mel. As soon as we got on the podcast, we were like, "Hey! You're the British version of me and I'm the Canadian version of you!" She doing incredible things over in the UK with the body image and relationship to food movement. She's an absolutely incredible human. Mel had a seven year battle with eating disorders and in this episode we talked about how she recovered and how she had to accommodate everything in her life to serve her eating disorder. Her and I️ both talked about how we used vegetarianism and veganism as a way to mask our disordered eating. I️ didn't realize I️ was doing that until I️ realized I️ was doing that.
