In a world filled with constant change and uncertainty, it’s essential to find ways to reconnect with our hearts and embrace personal growth. The Coffee with Karen podcast, hosted by the insightful Karen Roberts, never fails to offer thought-provoking discussions, and in this episode, Karen welcomes the inspiring Amrita Rose, a writer, life and career coach, and wisdom worker. Together, they explore the profound topic of how to reconnect with your heart and reclaim yourself in a world that often pushes us in different directions.

Amrita Rose’s journey is a testament to the power of embracing change. Having navigated through three major career changes, she recently published her first book, “No Plaid Suits: How Not to Have a Boring, Normal Life,” which has received rave reviews. Her community-based programs encompass yoga, meditation, integrated art practices, and positive psychology, all of which have garnered enthusiastic appreciation.

The heart of their conversation revolves around the idea that embracing change is the key to personal growth. It’s a topic that resonates with anyone seeking to break free from the shackles of routine and discover new horizons.

The Biological Imperative to Resist Change

Amrita Rose sheds light on why humans often resist change, attributing it to a biological imperative. The reptilian brain, responsible for survival, tends to cling to the familiar, whether good or bad. It’s a mechanism that kept our ancestors safe but can hinder personal growth. Amrita emphasizes that any change initially feels uncomfortable, and we must train our entire being that this change won’t harm us.

The Three Levels of Alignment and Resonance

The conversation takes a fascinating turn as they discuss the three levels of alignment and resonance. The brain processes information quickly and resonates on energy, while emotions follow at a slightly slower pace. Our emotional system is a chemical and electrical process that asks, “how do I feel about that?” The physical body, being mass, takes the longest time to adjust to new routines and requires patience in the process.

Questioning Beliefs and Exploring Possibilities

Karen and Amrita urge listeners to question their beliefs about change and be open to alternative perspectives. They provide an example of someone afraid to quit their job due to housing concerns. This person can challenge their assumptions, exploring whether they truly need their current house or if they could relocate. The podcast encourages listeners to explore a myriad of possibilities for change aligned with their heart’s desires.

Societal Pressures and Self-Worth

Beyond personal growth, Karen and Amrita delve into societal pressures affecting our self-worth. They tackle the devaluation of elders in Western culture, the impact of consumerism, and the patriarchy on our self-esteem. In a world that often pushes us to seek external validation, they stress the importance of reconnecting with ourselves to feel whole and complete.

In conclusion, the Coffee with Karen podcast episode featuring Amrita Rose is a treasure trove of insights for anyone on a journey of personal growth and self-discovery. It provides a profound understanding of why we resist change and offers practical strategies to overcome that resistance. Moreover, it delves into the societal forces that shape our self-worth, inspiring us to reconnect with our hearts and live authentically. Don’t miss this enlightening conversation on embracing change and reclaiming yourself for a more fulfilling life.
