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.
