There are many reasons.
Trauma. Depression. Anger. Relationship problems. "Issues." Success! Someone I love is dying. Someone I love died. Someone I never loved died. My health. Fear. Longing. I want to be happy, thrive, create.
Sex. Sexuality. Sexual orientation. How is it to live in the male or female sexed body I was born into? Need to deep dive and go slow but am afraid of what my friends will say. Self-esteem. Toxic parents. Toxic friend group. Toxic culture. Boundaries. Limitations. Strengths. Do I want a baby? Infertility. Adoption. I'm adopted. I want to find my biological mother. I was raised by other people's mother(s). I never had a mother. Or a father. Or a pet.
My dreams. My boss. My body. My weight. I'm afraid, anxious, obsessed, lonely, mean, hurt, disconnected, tapped out, STUCK. God. No God. I'm sick of my bad habits, grudges, nightmares. Shopping. Eating. Not eating. Can't say NO. Can't stop crying. Cant cry. Can't remember. Don't want to remember. Need. Want.
Who am I? What color is my parachute?* What kind of life do I want? How do I want to be remembered? Whose life is this anyway? Patience. Acceptance. Change. Growth. Motion. Forgiveness. Friendship. Love.
And other reasons including the ones that have no name right now, but which live inside you as a vague "something" that would like your attention. Being deeply heard, seen, known and gotten can transform. It is incredibly powerful to sit with someone who is dedicated to listening and understanding how it is for you. Not how it should be, but what is true for you in this moment.
Whether you want to feel better, get unstuck, move forward or understand yourself in a new way, you don't have to do it by yourself.
want to meet this guy in person? NAMASTE BOOKSHOP is located steps away, around the corner on 14th street. There you will find books, gem stones, jewelry, tarot cards, journals and other spiritual tchotchkes. There is a pizza place next to it, but I haven't tried it.
