Change is natural and easy. Is that your experience?



What about when it comes to breaking bad habits, or ending worry or anxiety? When it comes to bouncing back from disappointment or loss, or changing habitual patterns and reactions?



Most of us experience change as difficult, with results that are shallow and short-lived. But that’s only because we’re stuck in an old paradigm, using strategies that don’t go deep enough.



Join psychologist and author Dr. Amy Johnson for Changeable, a podcast about a new paradigm in psychology that reveals the ironic way change really works. It’s easier than you think.

    EP79: The Right Way–and the Wrong Way–to Wait for Insight

    EP79: The Right Way–and the Wrong Way–to Wait for Insight

    Okay, so they aren’t exactly “right” and “wrong”, but there are two very, very different ways we tend to “wait for insight”, each with their own set of consequences. 



    Are you waiting the easy, helpful, guided way? Or the powerless, insight-come-save-me way?

    EP78: And

    EP78: And

    So many things in life look like either/or.



    It’s either black or it’s white. It’s either up or it’s down. When we’re thinking conceptually, life is full of either/or. Full of two things that seemingly can’t both be true.



    That appears to be the case when our intellect is engaged, and we’re view life through concepts and ideas.



    But when our intellect loosens, and we’re seeing a far wider, bigger picture, either/or expands and And enters.



    And. Both, all, inclusive, expansive.



    Listen in to see how many of the things that look one way (e.g., we are individuals feeling our own thinking) are also true in the opposite (e.g., we are one energy, sharing universal Thought).



    As our conceptual, thinking mind relaxes, And is clear and obvious.

    EP76: Dave Fry Interviews Me: Part 1 of 2

    EP76: Dave Fry Interviews Me: Part 1 of 2

    Dave Fry is interviewing me in a very long episode that we’ve split into two parts.



    Dave came to me with the idea of him interviewing me a couple of months ago. He already had a list of questions he’d love to ask, if I agreed.



    I was hesitant…only because I feel like you all hear from me so much already, and I get a little insecure about overdoing it.



    But in the week or two after Dave’s request (while I stalled in getting back to him) 2 or 3 people emailed saying that I should be the guest on my own podcast sometime. I tend to listen to nudges like that.



    So here we are. I made Dave whittle down his list of 60+ questions to 10 or so. That’s what you’ll hear in this episode.



    A note about Dave: If you’ve been to any type of live event I’ve done, you know Dave. He’s front and center, always willing to pitch in and help when it comes to sharing this new paradigm.



    He carries umbrellas for people, sweeps floors, prints the LSBC t-shirts. He’s also a trained coach who has an amazing personal story. Dave suffered with major depression for decades. He was on a cocktail of heavy drugs and was suicidal much of that time.



    Things began to turn around in a massive way for Dave around 2015. He read Being Human around that time, and has been one of the biggest success stories of this new paradigm. Dave is now one of the happiest people I know.



    So, that’s your host! Enjoy Part 1 of this conversation!

    EP75: Tammy’s Change Story: The 40-Year Eating Habit that Never Was

    EP75: Tammy’s Change Story: The 40-Year Eating Habit that Never Was

    Tammy had an eating habit for 40 years.



    She tried everything. I do mean everything. She lists many of the things she tried in this episode (and then she sent me a long email with 20 more things she tried, but forgot to mention).



    Then Tammy came across the New Paradigm and things began to shift.



    At first, all the talk about Thought sounded familiar. Like stuff she already knew. But she was interested, so she stayed in the conversation.



    Over a few weeks, she began to see that the way we were talking about Thought and wellbeing was very different than what she had heard before.



    Tammy realized at some point that she doesn’t really “have” an eating habit the way she thought she did for 40 years. Yes, she was in the habit of overeating. But she didn’t “have” this problem. It suddenly looked very different to her.



    And it ended. Just like seeing that there is no Santa Claus, as she says in the episode. You can’t go back to believing in something once you’ve seen that it’s made up.



    I know you’ll hear so much in Tammy’s story. [Disclaimer: Don’t listen to this one in the car or on Alexa around children who still believe in Santa!]

    EP74: How Your Parent Can Completely Change (Even When They Don’t Change At All) with Phil Goddard

    EP74: How Your Parent Can Completely Change (Even When They Don’t Change At All) with Phil Goddard

    Phil had a somewhat distant relationship with his father for as long as he can remember. When Phil was in his 20s, his father disowned him and they didn’t speak for 10 years.



    Phil thought he was over it. He had forgiven his father and moved on.



    Until he realized there was more on offer. The story of how Phil and his father eventually reunited and the way Phil feels about his dad today is remarkable. It’s a beautiful story full of insight into what our relationships are actually comprised of, and what’s in the way when they feel strained, and what’s possible with just a tiny bit of understanding.  



    How is it that the way we feel about people in our lives can change so dramatically, even when those people don’t appear to change?



    How is it that simply understanding another person—getting a glimpse into how life is for them—can change so much?



    Phil’s story is full of insight for all relationships and any area of life, really. It’s also a perfect episode to listen to around the holidays, when many of us will be visiting family.



    Enjoy!
