Understanding Women's need for safety I’m very excited about today's guest, a good friend of mine in the first woman on our show. Miss Amber Hawken.
I've been very fortunate to be her friend for some time. And that has been both in just two humans connecting on a level that we get each other, but also because of, you know, where we're at and the work that we do. And that's one of the major reasons why I wanted to bring Amber onto the show.
Because of the insight, the skills, the expertise she has in helping people get the shit together.
I wanted to bring her on because as a woman, I believe she has a beautiful and unique perspective for men, as women of course do. And I will talk to many more women on the show. I wanted to speak to Amber to get a bit of a woman's perspective for men, but more specifically, and as you hear in this podcast, I wanted to speak to the idea of the conversation of safety.
I've done plenty of posts about this in the past, that speak somewhere along the lines to: “Men, she needs to feel safe with you.”
They usually get a monumental response from women and from guys sometimes “Yes, and okay, please tell me more or make sense of this.” And also "It should go both ways."
And so in this episode with Amber we’ll explore that; the idea of safety.
What that is to women, to the feminine and in with it, we actually go into looking at the masculine and feminine; those modes. In us, as individuals, as well as how that plays out in our relationships; how do we understand these aspects and modes and energies in us?
Amber's got some beautiful, uh, personal stories that she shares in amongst this.
For guys, you might want to pass on some of this stuff to some of your female partners. Also to any of my gay audience, there's a lot here speaking to the feminine in anyone. So it doesn't really matter who you are. I think you can get a lot from this and from Amber. Including any female listeners, for sure.
See below for some tools from Amber and how to access more from her.
A little of the ‘formal’ bio: Cause I love it. And it goes:
"In a society that capitalises on our deepest fears, doubts and insecurities people no longer have the courage to show themselves, be themselves, live for themselves, think for themselves. Alas, we get so lost in this trap of gratification and escape that we live empty lives, trying to fulfil a version of someone else's perfect.
It's a fucking tragedy. Amber's work is dedicated to passing on practical principles for spiritual evolution and a magnificent life. And for that four ingredients are required: vulnerability, mindfulness, a great sense of humour and purpose.”
As always, if you take something from this, please share it with me, let us know, share it with someone else, take the episode and share it with someone that you think might get a lot from this. Reach out; let me know that you're listening. And of course, you know, I'm going to ask this, make sure that you follow subscribe, click, download, and leave us a rating and a review.
It gives us so much support in getting this in front of other eyes and ears that need it, that can benefit from it. And with that said, let's get into the show.
Mike’s main lessons/takeaways:
This can be a HUGE topic to start exploring for men if you haven’t explored safety and the masculine/feminine. This is a nice starting point, and the perspective of women is easily the most powerful way to learn this.
