Why you can't trust your mind - #016


Episode #016

Today, I am speaking to Amy Johnson about why you can't trust your mind.

Amy Johnson, Ph.D. is a psychologist, coach, author, and speaker who shares a groundbreaking new approach that helps people find true & lasting freedom from unwanted habits via insight rather than willpower.

In 2017 she opened The Little School of Big Change, (*affiliate link) an online school that has helped hundreds of people find freedom from anxiety and habits and live a more peaceful life.

Amy has been a regularly featured expert on The Steve Harvey Show and, as well as in The Wall Street Journal and Self magazine. Learn more at

Today, we have an amazing conversation where we dive deep into why our mind creates chaos, and why things are not always what we think they are.

In this episode, you will discover why you can't trust your mind and why you need to learn to see beyond your thinking, and if you really want to experience life in a totally different way.


Why things are not always what you think they are even when you feel stuck.

What our experiences are made of and how understanding this can change your life.

How Amy was influenced by the work of Sydney Banks.

Why we are not our experience.

Why, when you are upset and feel horrible, that’s your mind going crazy and creating an experience.

Why you are always safe once you understand that your mind is always creating an experience.

Why it’s important to understand that you don’t need to micromanage anything. Your mind was created to auto-correct itself.

The importance of understanding that the only way to change something is to accurately understand it.

Why it’s key to become aware that we have an energy that is moving through us, and through this energy, we have our experiences.

Why, when you are not judging things as good or bad, but just simply allow them to be an experience, life becomes remarkable and safe.

Why, when you are constantly judging your experience, life becomes really hard and everything becomes an obstacle.

Why, when you feel stuck, you are caught up in what your mind is telling you.

When your mind settles down, you allow room for opportunity.

Why going deep on this topic can change your life, once you can see beyond your thinking, you can experience life in a totally different way.
