The Amber Hawken Podcast

As the founder of Amber Hawken and Calm Mind Project, Amber questions, unpacks and simplifies the paradox of being a spiritual being in this human experience. In her solo sessions and expert guest interviews, Amber asks the important questions, like, how can we be human with less suffering, and more joy, love, growth, impact and purpose? Through clarity comes understanding and from understanding comes aligned action and wisdom. This podcast interviews experts on life science, spirituality, psychology, relationships, mental, nutritional, physical and emotional wellbeing, and entrepreneurship to alchemise confusion and fear into clarity and aligned action. Each episode has real time transformational exercises and/or techniques that can be integrated into everyday life to ensure maximum impact for the time you invest listening. Each episode will enable you to get back to what’s true and vital; your true nature and how to get there in each moment, over and over again.

Shame parties cultivate wholeness

Leann Rimes is a bloody legend.

An open-hearted powerhouse who isn't afraid of her own humanity.

LeAnn is a multi-platinum selling acclaimed singer who has sold over 44 million units globally. She is a powerhouse vocalist with multiple Grammy and Music awards. Yes - she is the magic being responsible for the epic hits from the classic, Coyote Ugly.

LeAnn has a personal blog and name Soulofeverle across all social platforms where she brings love and joy to the world including meditations, soulful episodes, her voice and healing frequency candles.

The main points we cover in this episode include:

  • The multidimensional aspects of being a human
  • Why 'shame parties' are necessary in order for us to become more whole being - and ENJOY life!
  • The experience of having to stop for the first time since she was 11 and what that feels like and plays out in both light and dark ways in her world
  • The integrations and awareness of all parts of ourselves that we get to look at when we stop
  • How LeAnn worked through and with shame during and now still, after a very public display of her previous relationship ending with infidelity wound in and how that still impacts in a different way
  • How the darkest times of our lives lead to our deepest growth
  • Her exploration  of herself on a new platform and how this grew into
  • When you strive from lack, it disrupts flow and chokes joy
  • Working with wholesomeness as a human being including integrating and loving rejected aspects of ourselves from the shadow
  • What she learned about fame, integrity and what's most important in life
  • When you choose alignment, you can 'have it all'
  • Unconditional love and joy are tools as much as they  are states of being

No, I didn't get to serenade her to Can't Fight The Moonlight, but I will. I made a promise.

Humans (including men) are relational beings,

This episode explores some of the more hands-on work for men, and the masculine, that is often overlooked, underestimated or displaced by cognitive therapy alone. We dive into the role of relating to the world, others, self, source, emotions and everything as fundamental to rebuilding the divine masculine in a healthy way.

We cover deep and wide avenues in this chat including:

  • What presence and being in ‘flow’ looks and feels like and appreciating the contrast of numbness as a result of a severed connection to source
  • How a lot of men/people surrogate needs of touch and feel with women when they actually need that vital connection with men also
  • How to restore vitality to mens/all beings lives and how to actively be influenced at every level
  • Exploring the patterns in different types of addictions that coincide from a lack of certain needs being met as a child
  • How many attachment styles and codependency habits develop as a result of trauma
  • Exploring the difference between somatic and cognitive therapy; why we need more than speaking in order to heal
  • Denying our nature of being relational beings and how disconnection has been celebrated in men.. and the damage that ensues as a result of this denial
  • Clarifying true power (influence) and control and how control is a lack of trust and shutting down
  • The piece for women in this work is creating openings for men in our world and how to do that
  • Why for some men, it can be exhausting to remove walls and remain vulnerable, even in the face of vulnerability
  • message from Michael for men who get frozen in the face of confronting their own walls and vulnerabilities
  • Why letting yourself feel, be influenced and be affected in relationships is empowering for all

My favourite bit was - all of that. Mainly when Michael talks about how doing this work is a form of activism for the collective rise of our future. 

Please, go and check out Michael's work

Imagine sourcing your sense of power and love from within, forever.

This episode is about how to use intimacy, with self and others, in order to move through pain, discomfort and resistance to create a life of fulfilment and truest expression as a sovereign being. 

Sovereignty in its most simple form is being self-governed. You are not swayed or lead by internal or external environments. You are the leader, the creator and the seer of your world and life, period.

Not only is woman exceptionally fierce and an embodiment of love, but she is also a dear friend of mine who I've been energetically held by. I know the power of her insights and light and am delighted to share them with you all.

From Court,

"I'm Courtney McNabb. I'm a women's Empowerment Coach and Feminine Energy Repatterning Trainer touring the world activating women in their fierce feminine power.

Between and during global ventures, I work with female spiritual leaders and seekers across the globe. My mission is to activate an unshakable internal world and to align high-vibrational energetic behavioral patterns with sacred purpose. I help women dissolve wounded stories which keep them feeling scarce, stuck, and limited.

My home base in Denver, Colorado, where I love creating community and drinking oat milk lattes. I specialize in Sovereignty and the Sacred Feminine, love plant dancing to gangster rap and adventuring the mountains with my boyfriend and baby sister."

The bottom line of the interview explores the following (and then some):

  • What does sovereignty mean?
  • How your thoughts, actions, mess are yours..and then what’s beyond that?
  • Moving beyond our personality structure
  • Free will and how to exercise your power of choice
  • Burning the pushing paradigm
  • Holding yourself and landing in your body when we are re writing codes in our consciousness
  • The work is invisible and where our invitation is
  • The rejection of ‘trust’ is the old masculine..and something to embrace
  • Knowing your kingdom to govern it
  • Understanding we have operated from the wounded feminine and what it takes to shift that
  • Grieving adjustments as a man to embracing the feminine energy
  • The key to unlocking the leverage of connection and surrender to source and flow
  • Noticing the wounded marline and feminine within and how do the divine versions interplay
  • Integrating all four parts of our divinity into one
  • Trusting ideas, inspirations and goals as a GUIDE to your life not a ‘pipe dream’
  • How we are fearing the divine love of the feminine which is the opposing force magnetic to the patriarchy..which is what we are dissolving
  • How to release analysis, paralysis, control and judgment through this work
  • Allowing this all to be simple, releasing control and contraction and order to own your true power

Fear screams, while the soul whispers.

The skill of listening to your soul is subtle and sublime and Alana and I dive right into the different ways in which humans both sever and can reconnect to the very source of our own soul.

It’s as practical and human a conversation as you can imagine with a being who was once a lawyer and now a world-renowned spiritual teacher and best-selling author, inspiring a devoted following of her work.

Alana’s beautiful, extensive and highly original body of work includes oracle decks, books and powerful online healer training program. 

This episode is published with the intention to help you wake up to what you may not even realise has fallen asleep. It’s often the root of all these outer habits that keep us distracted and unfulfilled.

Some of the powerful points we cover include:

  • A down to earth insight into oracle decks and channelling spirit
  • Cultivating trust in something greater than yourself
  • Expanding our capacity to evolve into our purpose
  • Following the cosmic breadcrumbs and getting out of our own way
  • How to explore different truths and versions of your beliefs and life
  • Moving beyond what we ‘know’ into
  • Why struggle tends to lead to awakening (even if it is not necessary)
  • The shit in your life fertilising the new paths in your life\
  • Listening to a different language to know without knowing how you know
  • Working with the triggers of releasing only logical way go proceeding forward in life
  • Disconnect from out truth causing the suffering
  • A business approach that is more tuned into a feminine creative flow rather than force and plan it all
  • The intricacy of the vision (control of outcome) needs releasing in order for the greater intelligence to do its work
  • An innate higher order that appears to be random is an opportunity to trust self and our own journey
  • Understanding the signs and guidance from divine beings and the necessity to strengthen our connection to source
  • Mindset is a foundational part of inviting in support and relationships with something greater than ourselves
  • Asking for support is vital, simple and smart.
  • Plug-in and say thank you!

  • Masks of masculinity for women who are feminine at their core
  • Remembering pleasure and feeling
  • How to soften and open in relationships
  • Re-energising and vitalising through coming home
  • Entering the pull instead of the push
  • Reclaiming your polarity

What's your vibe say about your life?

Ever wondered what yoga teachers, healers, lightworkers, coaches and therapists mean when they talk about the divine, source,  energy or soul? With this wild and wild trauma-informed coach, facilitator and yoga teacher, we unpack and navigate the invisible work of the divine. 

Leila is a trauma-informed empowerment coach and spiritual mentor, who lives an adventurous nomadic lifestyle travelling all over the world to inspire healing through creative movement, personal empowerment & deep spiritual connection. You can find Leila with her pup, Folly, teaching yoga classes, leading mindfulness workshops and hosting health and wellness retreats.

So I am in love with Leila, she is one of those humans. 

She’s experienced, embodied, honest, grounded, opened hearted, humble, strong fierce and fucking hilarious. This is one of my longer podcasts. We did this live in Costa Rica on the second last day of a retreat she was running that I dropped into to say hi and connect with her and our mutual friends and her co-hosts, Jeremy Goldberg and Traver Boehm. 

Yes, life is delicious. Both Leila and I get lost in the flow of this topic and forget multiple times we are even on a podcast recording. We both share intimate experiences we’ve had unpacking some pretty messy times in our hearts and minds so you have real-life examples of how to do some of the work from birth to now that will help you lift and raise your vibration. 

We unpack in detail the powerful philosophies of yoga, the soul, trauma, healing and practical techniques to build internal connection, energy and overall re-integration of ourselves as a whole being. 

I know, right? Fucking rad. 

Some of my fav points covered:

  • Discerning what it is to be a human and the connection between infinite and our human sense of “me”.
  • The three aspects of the soul; “Sat Chit Ananda” (Satcitānanda, Satchidānanda, or Sat-cit-ānanda (Sanskrit: सच्चिदानन्द) ?
  • The connection between stimulus addiction, lack of presence and fulfilment and our ignorance to our true nature
  • Why we need to know who/what we really are in order to amplify joy, peace, love and all the good feels.
  • Working with the mind, our mental mood and voice and getting right with the mind.
  • How to practice self-healing and trauma release.
  • Taking personal responsibility to the inventory of our decisions, macro actions, thoughts and sanskaras 
  • What you need in order to love self and of others
  • Strengthing discipline through our own “stoking of fire”
  • The shadow of self and spiritual growth and how to check-in if its playing out in your life
  • Why consistency and self-trust in your life for strength and freedom
  • How painful events in the past, unprocessed, can lead to feeling hollow, emptier and even affect self-esteem, happiness and wellbeing
  • How to cultivate our own inner energy to utilise, channel and work through something greater than ourselves. 
  • When Leila described step by step how she re-integrated parts of her being that she had left behind throughout her life and overcome multiple different fears,  traumas and insecurities
  • Taking your practices from about “me” to about “we” in order to find courage, discipline and 
  • The most simple tool for making decisions that will either fill you or drain you. 

Challenge

Before making any decision, especially tough ones, place your hand on your heart and take five deep breaths first.
