More than a week ago my B. hamorii molted with success. However she's still buried in her burrow.
Thanks to a small hole on the ceiling of the den I can control her and she's still alive and in good condition. Is it normal?

Yes. She's vulnerable post-moult and feels safer in her burrow right now.
She'll emerge when she's ready -- eventually hunger should draw her out (after she's well hardened).

You will soon find out that Brachypelmas have their own extremely slow schedule that they like to keep. When mine was a little smaller it stayed underground for 2 months.

It's fine. Leave it be to avoid hurting it.
