If someone asked you "What do you need right now?" would you even be able to articulate it? In her new book NEEDY: How To Advocate for Your Needs and Claim Your Sovereignty, intuitive coach Mara Glatzel lays out a roadmap for how to ascertain our needs as human beings, how to ask for it, and how to be comfortable with receiving it.

Mara's work helps humans stop abandoning themselves and start reclaiming their humanity through embracing their needs and honoring their natural energy rhythms. In this episode, Mara and Amy discuss:

  • The societal pressure to be perfect and need-free as mothers
  • The difference between a "want" and a "need" and how they intersect
  • Why it's uncomfortable both to ask for what we need and to finally receive it

Mara argues that the more in tune we are with our own needs, the more we are able to peacefully coexist with others and form authentic relationships.
