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,

99 – NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
THE SO FREE ART PODCAST

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.
