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.

    EP83: Tom’s Change Story: From Major Recurrent Depression to Moods that Fix Themselves

    EP83: Tom’s Change Story: From Major Recurrent Depression to Moods that Fix Themselves

    It’s been so fun to watch things change for Tom.



    Shortly before we met last summer, Tom was not feeling great. It was a feeling he had expressed off and on at times in his life. His doctor called it Recurrent Major Depression. 



    Then, as Tom says, he snapped out of it. He began to turn a corner and feel a lot better. He also began to immerse himself in the New Paradigm understanding and see a lot.



    Tom’s “recurrent major depression” looks a lot different to him now. It looks more like moods--even very low ones--fix themselves. You’ll love hearing how Tom explained this to his doctor :) 



    Tom knows that he could feel anything at any time. But he also knows that all feelings fix themselves. I can’t wait for you to hear this from him in this episode.

    EP82: Are Memories Repressed and Stored in our Body?

    EP82: Are Memories Repressed and Stored in our Body?

    At first glance, the New Paradigm can appear to be inconsistent with the idea that memories are “repressed”, or that the effects of old thought and memory are manifest in our bodies. 



    After all, if we are 100% free and innately well, feeling only Thought energy that is constantly in motion, how would repression fit? 



    This is a question I get all the time, usually in a way that feels scary, as if deeply repressed memories are stored in our muscles, bones and psyche, likely to spring to consciousness and wreak havoc at any moment. Okay, that may be a bit of a dramatization, but you get the picture. 



    So listen in, as I talk about repressed memories and how we often feel the physical and emotional effects of thought we aren’t ready to feel.

    EP81: Listening to Your Soul and Blowing Your Own Mind with Kirk Souder

    EP81: Listening to Your Soul and Blowing Your Own Mind with Kirk Souder

    I’ve seen so many people suffer over the idea that they don’t know their “purpose”. 



    It’s not purpose’s fault. But “purpose”, or  better yet “soul purpose”, as Kirk Souder often talks and writes about it, just sounds so big. So important. And sometimes so mysterious.



    We make up how it would look and feel if we were aligned with our soul’s purpose. We expect it to look a particular way and we conclude that everyone has a purpose except for us. Ours is a mystery and because we don’t know what it is, we’re missing out.



    If any of that is familiar, you’re going to love this conversation with Kirk Souder.



    Kirk is co-founder and head leadership coach at enso, an organization that works with leaders and brands around the world such as Nike, Disney, Virgin, Visa, Google, The White House, and Obama for America. Kirk coaches high-impact leaders to find their greatest possibility in leadership, purpose, and impact.



    You’ll hear in my voice how much I loved this conversation with Kirk. You’ll see that your purpose is right under your nose, hiding in plain sight. And the path toward it is far simpler than it seems.

    EP80: The Nature of You: How You and Nature are One and the Same with Teri Whiteman and Claudette Dietlin

    EP80: The Nature of You: How You and Nature are One and the Same with Teri Whiteman and Claudette Dietlin

    In this episode, I talk with Teri Whiteman and Claudette Dietlin about Nature. 



    Human nature. Mother nature. 



    “Inside” nature. “Outside” nature. 



    Same same. 



    No, seriously. Same same. We humans are nature, and we operate by the same Principles as nature. Do you know that? Like, really know it? 



    The difference between you and a tree is that you have a brain and a mind that can tell stories (including stories about how much more special people are than trees, how life should and shouldn’t be going...you get the idea).



    It’s incredibly mind-opening to see how the laws of nature govern you and I. I think you’re going to love this conversation.



    If you want to spend a weekend in nature with Teri and Claudette, exploring these connections more deeply, check out the amazing retreat they are leading in early March. They talk about it at the end of this episode, too: The Nature of You Retreat.

    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? 



    Listen in and find out!

    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.

Amazing stuff!

I have read Amy’s book and was lucky enough to spend time learning from her at a weekend Reset Retreat in Santa Monica. The podcast is such a gentle reminder to take a step back and look at things with a different perspective. Each episode I listen to helps me make that shift. Highly recommend!!
