Show Notes

Today I have the incredible and inspiring Amber Rae who is an
author, artist and speaker and she drops truth bombs left, right and center up in this episode!

Amber shares how she made the shift from living her life the way she was “supposed to” to waking up to her truth and purpose.

10 years ago, Amber was climbing the ranks in tech digital advertising world. She was doing exactly what she thought she was supposed to do, she looked successful to others, and yet she was popping adderall to keep up and felt deeply empty on the inside and unsure of why.

Her overworking and underplaying and not taking care of myself culminated into her body breaking down, a panic attack and feeling lost and alone.
In this episode, Amber shares her journey to wake up to her truth and how she started getting curious and the wondering began.

Amber goes in depth of how she connected where worry, fear and panic were coming up for her and how she utilized those feelings and emotions to develop a deeper understanding of herself, and how you can too. She also shares how she created a new relationship with worry, practiced compassion with herself, and chose wonder to free herself.
