107 – VIDEO GAMES ADDICTION & GUILT

This is one of them Therapy sessions, where I empty my Mind on the topic of Video Game Addiction.

It’s something I’ve struggled with all my life; I thought I was over it, but it seems I’m still Trapped in the Cycle of Buying Video Games, Feeling Guilty and Selling Them, only to than want to Buy Them Back Again.

I really have no idea what is going on, or what I’m supposed to do about it, but I know Talking About Stuff Helps.

And some of the stuff I talk about on this one, includes:
The Flow State,
How Racing Games are like Drawing,
Feelings of Guilt,
Are Video Games Sociable or Anti-Sociable,
My herstory with Video Games,
and Dancing on the Dance Floor at University :)

Hope you find this one interesting.

103 – THE WAKE UP CALL

Wakey Wakey! Can you hear that? I never planned to talk about this topic, but it popped into my head, so I went with it … on this episode I talk about the Virus, and how I see it as The Wake Up Call we all need.

Something I’ve realised over the past few years is that Change is hard; the Transition from old to new is super Uncomfortable, but I see this lil period we’re in right now as a Beautiful Opportunity for us Humans to Learn and Grow, and hopefully Come Together.

Lots of Topics on this one, such as:
The Ancient Past,
Conspiracies,
Facing Fears,
Religions,
Balancing Opposites,
Death,
Tribes,
The Media,
Fear,
How Thoughts Lead to Action,
Karma,
and we have a lil bit of African Drumming at the end :)

Hope you like this one.

99 – NEGATIVE THOUGHTS

NO! That’s what I said out loud during the recording of a YouTube video when I got hit with a wave of Negative Thoughts about my voice.

Once I had finished recording, I realised it would make a good topic for this weeks About the Tings episode of the So Free Art Podcast.

Negative Thoughts are Pretty Powerful, and Super Sneaky, but once you start putting Awareness on the Mind, you see them for what they really are…

LIES!

It’s funny though, because even when you know what’s going on, they still seem to be running the show; It’s bloody mental lol

On this episode I talk about some of my main reoccurring Negative Thoughts, Tings that can help, such as Automatic Writing, and I share some of my Personal Experiences Exposing the Lies of the Mind.

I also talk about:
Synchronicity,
Facing Fears,
The Baby Step Approach,
Confidence,
Keeping a Diary,
and we end with a bit of African Drumming.

I do hope you enjoy this one.

Hope you enjoy this talk about Saying No that goes completely off the rails by the end; I’ve so much more to say about this topic, but it will have to wait for another day as I couldn’t talk anymore by the end. Literally couldn’t speak lol

Some of the tings I did discuss include:

Life Getting In The Way,
Feeling Guilty,
Barrier Technique,
How to Say No,
Overcoming Addiction,

95 – MYSTERY TOPIC

This one’s a Mystery! Thought it might be fun to keep the topic a Secret from you, seeing as I didn’t know what I was going to be talking about until co-host lil Dennis randomly pulled it out of my bag.

I used to do this all the time, about a year a go, and I forgot how hard but fun it can be. Really enjoyed this, it’s fascinating to see what the mind comes up with when it’s put on the spot.

Some of the tings I talk about include:
How Painting has a life of it’s own,
Running,
Honey and Lemon Lockets,
Toilet paper,
Mistakes,
Being Adaptable,
and Learning.

I also talk a bit about Boogies lol I wasn’t feeling very well during this one and one fell onto my drawing. Eww!

Hope you like.
