126 • FACE MASKS AND FREEDOM PART TWO

Thoughts are everything, that’s what I discover on this weeks about the tings episode, which sees me talking about Face Masks and Freedom part two.

If your heart says it doesn’t feel right, than it isn’t right. Instead of focusing on the fear, focus on the feeling, let the feeling grow, and it will out grow the fear.

I’m realising it’s crunch time for the human race. Thoughts create actions, but will we take control of our thoughts, or let out actions be taken for us?

Topics on this one include:
The Matrix,
Subconscious vs Conscious,
Following the Feeling,
Fear vs Courage,
How a lil bit of Fear is Good For You,
Nothing is as important as Freedom,
Black Lives Matter,
The Domino Effect,
Finding Courage,
Reiki Healing,
Baby Steps,
Beliefs and Reality,
How Conflict is Inevitable,
Feeling Helpless,
Two Timelines,
Hope,
and I wonder, what is the point in being a human if you haven’t got freedom?

Hope you find this one interesting.

Other topics include:

Day Jobs and Routines,
Blogs vs Videos,

It’s something that popped into my awareness this morning, after a dream I had last night where I was face to face with my Dad, talking about his inability to accept me as Transgender.

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,

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.

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.
