Q: How were you inspired to start your business?
In 2016, I had a near-death experience during childbirth with my third baby. Prior to that experience, I was a classroom teacher in special education. I knew that I could not go back to work at a school and leave my son. I wanted to be home with him. While I was figuring out what to do next, I started doing intuitive readings for friends and my business sort of took off from there. A year later, I started my online business. From there I have grown it to include teaching the Akashic Records and running membership groups for people who want to awaken the magic within.
Q: How much do you love what you do?
I love it so much that I actually do healings in my sleep in the astral world. It is not a work that I can leave behind. I love what I do so much and it chose me as much as I chose it. It truly is a Divine gift. And once I found the Akashic Records my life transformed so it is an honor to help people do the same.
Q: If you could go back to a point in your life when you were facing a challenge, what inspirational advice would you give yourself?
I have faced many challenges along the way including being homeless. In those turbulent times, I told myself “keep riding the wave, Andrea.”
If anyone out there is reading this and going through a tough time…know that the only thing that is constant in the Universe is change and the rough patch will pass. It is okay to feel. Feel the feels, to heal the feels.
Q: Tell us how your business inspires your customers!
My business gives people hope and space for them to believe in themselves. In such a noisy world, my business is a beacon of light that helps guide people home to their true self.
Q: Knowing you aren’t alone in something and that there is light at the end of the tunnel means a lot when you are feeling low. What is a typical problem someone you work with might be facing and how do you guide them back into the light?
Many times I work with people through confusion and lack of confidence in my Spiritual Underground VIP Mentorship Group. I find that as helpers we can help people through things that have been our biggest challenges. I lacked clarity and confidence for years and it created so much pain in my life.
When people feel like they have given their all and life is handing them lemons, I help them to see all the gifts and superpowers they have inside of them already. And I show them how to bring more of that to the light. As more and more people awaken to their spiritual path, it can be confusing and feel really foreign. I have been on this path for over 20 years, so I can really help people make sense of all of these changes. I help them transform with a greater sense of ease and peace.
Q: As people we are always evolving and learning things on our life journey. Where do you find inspiration?
My inspiration comes from watching my children. I am a mother of four, so they keep me pretty busy. Over the years I have learned so much about life through their eyes. They inspire me every single day to be a better version of myself for them and for the world. Kids are brilliant! They are really close to the light and have so much love to share. The younger they are, the wiser. My youngest is 4 months and he teaches me every day how to be a badass!
Q: Businesses are always evolving too… what are you inspired to do next?
I am writing a book about some adversity that I have faced in my first few years in business and plan to speak to other entrepreneurs to inspire them that adversity doesn’t have to stop you from living your mission.
I also will be hosting healing retreats in the near future as well.
