HOW TO BREAK THE VICIOUS CYCLE OF NEGATIVITY, TURNING NEGATIVES INTO POSITIVES.


Painting titled- Evil Green Eyed Monster

Depiction of a person who was the initial trigger that set of a chain reaction of stress, anxiety and paranoia in 1996. like a starter gun that set off a chain reaction. This was the trigger that sent me to a dark place.

The green daggers represent jealousy and lies, the bitches spewing from her mouth are hurting words, events and happenings attacking me. the golden heart I wear on my sleeve has been pierced and broken never to be mended. I have been engulfed by an evil and overpowering hidden presence and am unable to stop the wrath of anger from swallowing me into oblivion. the depths of my despair are great and I can no longer cope with the torment and stress and powerless to prevent me sliding into deepest depression anxiety and paranoia. 

I have been consumed by anger and hatred, succumbing to tears in abundance and heartache aplenty, inwardly my mind has lost all control and madness takes over, outwardly the world is a different place, signs are everywhere and confusion reigns supreme. I have no power left to fight, only to be consumed into the dark void of my despair with nowhere to turn for help only the constant laughter of persecution just a stone’s throw from reality.

Madness calls and reality slips away replaced by fear, anxiety, paranoia and insomnia. The edge of the abyss approaches, clinging onto the bare fragments of hope that help may arrive soon but fails to come. Sometimes feeling it is all just a joke and I’ve been on candid camera but soon realising this is not the case. to once again slip into deep despair.


Song by the Prodigy fiestarter, released on 19 March 1996


I'm the trouble starter, punkin' instigator
I'm the fear addicted, danger illustrated
I'm a firestarter, twisted firestarter
You're a firestarter, twisted firestarter
I'm a firestarter, twisted firestarter
I'm the bitch you hated, filth infatuated
Yeah! I'm the pain you tasted, fell intoxicated

I'm a firestarter, twisted firestarter
You're the firestarter, twisted firestarter
I'm the self inflicted, mind detonator
Yeah! I'm the one infected, twisted animator
I'm a firestarter, twisted firestarter
You're the firestarter, twisted firestarter
I'm a firestarter, twisted firestarter starter


How to Break the vicious cycle of negativity and turning negatives to positives


Negative thinking= The above painting, writings and feelings was painted and written to try and help show and deal with my feelings at a difficult period in my life. I was full of anger but my anger turned in on itself into anxiety, paranoia, insomnia and tears and fears and brought about a negative vicious cycle which snowballed into a larger problem for me and I have been constantly beating myself up over lots of issues and always succumbing to negative thoughts feelings and processes, this brought about a constant cycle of everlasting pain and suffering. Like the uroborus Dragon eating itself and stuck in a negative cycle.


Positive thinking= In order for me to break the cycle of negativity in my life I need to focus on what good can be done and turn a negative into a positive. This event happened over two decades ago and it has been a constant worry and cause of stress, anxiety, insomnia and paranoia over the years.

  

The painting of Evil green-eyed monster was painted when I was in a negative frame of mind I have now apologised to the person for my actions and if I caused any stress and anxiety and negativity to anybody. I have spiritually cleansed this by writing a letter and setting this on fire sending this negativity to the heavens to cleanse. I can now move on to do positive actions with my art and use the artwork in a positive way to help people who also had stress in their lives to help them move forward with positivity.


I accept that the stressful events happened in my life causing all my pain, suffering and misery and I let this go to help break that vicious cycle of the uroboros Dragon eating itself in negativity and bring about a positive change in that cycle. Turning the negative uroboros Dragon into a positive cycle Dragon.

  

Stress can be a good thing, the fight or flight response is a natural process for dealing with a threat or stressful event, it helps you react to a dangerous situation or perceived threat that can help you fight or run away. It’s a natural process. however too much stress can turn into a negative and lead to illness. How much stress is too much depends on each person individually, some can deal with a lot of stress others can crumble at a little stress. You need to strike a balance in work and home life to deal with the stress. 


I understand that negativity eats away at the soul and you are only hurting yourself by thinking negatively and doing negative thoughts, actions and deeds 


THINK POSITIVE, DO POSITIVE THINGS IN MIND BODY AND SOUL, BRING A BALANCE IN LIFE TO BE AS ONE WITH THE NATURAL ORDER OF LIFE. 


If you are also in a vicious cycle of negativity remember “always look on the bright side of life” as in the words of the life of Brian. This is what my Dad and I sing together to brighten up a dark thought or place. 


A lot of the time it may be a hard thing to do but always seek help because a brighter day will come in your life to overcome your worries and stress.  


  

Monty python- always look on the bright side of life lyrics


Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best

And always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the light side of life

If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle, that's the thing

And always look on the bright side of life
Come on!
Always look on the right side of life

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow
Forget about your sin
Give the audience a grin
Enjoy it, it's your last chance anyhow

So, always look on the bright side of death
A-just before you draw your terminal breath

Life's a piece of shit
When you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true
You'll see it's all a show
Keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you

And always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the right side of life

C'mon Brian, cheer up!

Always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the bright side of life

Worse things happen at sea, you know
Always look on the bright side of life

I mean, what have you got to lose
You know, you come from nothing, you're going back to nothing
What have you lost? Nothing!

Always look on the right side of life...

Nothing will come from nothing, you know what they say?
Cheer up you old bugger, c'mon give us a grin!
There you are, see, it's the end of the film
Incidentally, this record is available in the foyer
Some of us have to got live as well, you know

Who do you think pays for all this rubbish
They're not gonna make their money back, you know
I told them, I said to them, Bernie, I said they'll never make their money back

How to Break the vicious cycle of negativity and turning negatives to positives


Painting Titled= Tortured Ticket To Ride Depiction of persecution

​   

I bought a ticket on a ride through hell, The gravestone heads represent laughter and lies, the body and head is me being mentally tortured and punished, the African death mask is controlling the events as the storm clouds approach and consume all into oblivion. 

Mentally abused and suffering from anxiety paranoia and stress my life had been turned upside down in a slow and agonising torture that brought reality into question. 


Eyes and people everywhere, knowing and uncaring, scheming and deceiving, this once familiar world of love, life and laughter had turned into chaos and out of control experiences through the TV, media, and everyday events.


Constant signs trying to tell me something that I could not work out, The End of the world, Biblical events unfolding, Mind control, Thought control, Masonic Laws and threats of abduction, violence and possible torture towards me and my family.

 

Confusion reigns supreme and out of my mind with worry for my family believing they were all going to be taken away from me, Insomnia comes coupled with fear that something could take my life and love away.


was this divine revelation, demonic possession, Mind control, government intervention or my anxiety and paranoia. 

Stress on levels unknown before had erupted into madness, slipping into a zombie state and out of control I commit suicide, as no more I can take, in the belief if I end this my family would be ok.

 

My Heartbeat slows and stops as my last breath is taken from me, Visions of demons come to life out of the TV looking and searching for what they need. Disappointed at the suicide note, they shout condemnations and disappear to where they came. Moments later I feel a Breath of life as though an Angel was breathing life into me once more.

My Life flows back to me slowly and I am dazed sitting there confused. I hear a knock on the door and my parents arrive to take me to hospital. I recover in hospital believing Jeremy Beadle will pop out any minute to say it is all just a joke.


I ask myself can this really be reality or a figment of imagination. I see a physchiatrist and all is well, just pop another pill and safety, peace and calm come back and life goes back to normal. 

I question reality now and I know where I would rather be, that place is a safe place where no evil can penetrate and cause paranoia, fear, distress and confusion. This life I leave behind as I take another pill and hope that the wolves do not come in the night to steal happiness away from me.

How to break the vicious cycle of negativity and turning negatives to positives


Into The unknown

Into the unknown is a watercolour painting of motorbikes racing to avoid danger in the form of the all-seeing dragon that is hidden behind a veil of mystery. I painted this at a time of stress, the all-seeing dragon is hidden depicting the paranoiac effects of somebody always watching and waiting, an unnerving veil that could be lifted at any time to reveal all, the evil that lies beneath and the fright that one gets when you are paranoid and everything you see is working against you scheming and deceiving.

The painting Into the unknown was painted as a way to deal with my stress, I was thinking negatively at a time when my anxiety caused paranoia. I have flipped this around now and can use the painting to highlight positive things. The green dragon is a symbol of life, death, and rebirth  


Dragon Symbolism & Meaning. Among animal spirit guides Dragon is arguably the most ancient and imposing. ... In the art of Feng Shui, Dragon represents fortune, authority, growth, luck and development. In Europe these formidable Beings symbolize the ability to rise over circumstance and see things clearly.


The uroborus is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail. Originating in ancient Egyptian iconography, the ouroboros entered western tradition via Greek magical traditionand was adopted as a symbol in Gnosticism and Hermeticism and most notably in alchemy. Via medieval alchemical tradition, the symbol entered Renaissance magic and modern symbolism, often taken to symbolize introspection, the eternal return or cyclicality, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself. It also represents the infinite cycle of nature's endless creation and destruction, life and death

Work stress Collection


This work stress collection is a point of view of a modern-day call centre worker in an anonymous call centre highlighting there stress in a pressured environment and has no detriment or bearing on my current role with my current or previous employers.

HOW TO BREAK THE VICIOUS CYCLE OF NEGATIVITY, TURNING NEGATIVES INTO POSITIVES


Painting Titled- Screwed (work stress collection) is a depiction of call centre workers in an anonymous call centre under Attendance management policy, sickness disciplinary. The worker is depicted as having to work through there illness in order that the company does not take disciplinary action against them. The worker is depicted as a gravestone for illness and chained to the desk in a bed whilst the company depicted as a greedy devil tightens the screw and kicking the employee whilst they are down thus highlighting there control over them. The greedy devil is sitting on the scales tipping them in the company’s favour, whilst dishing out more toxic adherence policies in the form of the poison bottle and removing privileges depicted by the zero pounds. The poor lowly sick worker knows he has lost his bonus and facing further action if he takes any more time off work for being ill. If he takes any more time off for being ill he will face further disciplinary action that will lead to his dismissal from the company for being over the companies acceptable attendance guidelines. The background of gravestone heads depicts countless more employees under the same cosh. 


“He is a number of many and like the Borg of Star Trek will be assimilated into the hive, resistance is futile.”

Painted in a Abstract expressionistic style using free flowing brush strokes and pallet knife Painted in Acrylic on box stretched canvas 


How to Break the vicious cycle of negativity and turning negatives to positives


Negative thinking= The above painting, writings and feelings was painted and written to try and help show and deal with my feelings at work in a previous employment and trying to put my feelings down on canvas. My outlook on the working environment I was in at the time is depicted in the paintings of this work stress collection. 


My work stress turned in on itself into anxiety, paranoia, insomnia and tears and fears and brought about a negative vicious cycle which snowballed into a larger problem for me at the time.


I succumbed to negative thoughts feelings and processes resulting in having a breakdown from the pressure of the workload and new processes the employer put on me and other members of staff. I told my employer at the time of needing a time in motion study to be done and this was ignored and added pressure was put on me and other members of staff resulting in me and other members of staff having a breakdown due to stress from work. This then spiralled into a negative cycle of emotion and stress, Like the uroborus Dragon eating itself and stuck in a negative cycle. 


Positive thinking= the work stress paintings at the time were made to help relieve the stress and to put a lighter spin on the stresses and strains of work in order that it would help combat the problems I was experiencing at the time.


My spin on the comment “He is a number of many and like the Borg of star trek will be assimilated into the hive, resistance is futile” was my way of bringing laughter to a stressful situation I was in to help with my work anxiety and stress.


This work stress collection highlights my feelings at the time and the above painting and comments highlights my thought process at the time. After many years of working in different companies I have been able to flip a negative feeling into positive feeling. Whereas In the past I focused on the negatives now I focus on the positives that can come from my artwork and I look at life in a different way. 


The Screwed painting highlights stress that people feel when they are under pressure from an overload of work bringing on illness and feel they are not getting help from the company. some companies are better than others in helping with stress at work.


This painting can be used as a positive way of looking at stress at work and dealing with workloads and sickness disciplinary actions to show the employer how much pressure people are under when they are trying to deal with their workloads and stress at work. This painting should be used to do positive things in the workplace and show the way forward for employers to help people by not putting an overload of work on people and not put added pressure on the employees which results in people having breakdowns leading to illnesses.


I am a man with feelings, thoughts and emotions and not a computer. I am free to choose my path in life and I choose to do positive things with it. I am not a slave.


I have refocused my mind on helping people and I have flipped into a positive and I look to see what I can do to help the customers on the phone and in life and do everything I can do to help them. this is a mission for me to do the best I can to treat each customer individually for the benefit of the customer and company. A company should bring a balance of workloads as to not cause stress to people. This should be the way forward for any company. A balanced worklife and home life and thinking positively benefits all. 

  

Stress can be a good thing, the fight or flight response is a natural process for dealing with a threat or stressful event, it helps you react to a dangerous situation or perceived threat that can help you fight or run away. It’s a natural process. however too much stress can turn into a negative and lead to illness. How much stress is too much depends on each person individually, some can deal with a lot of stress others can crumble at a little stress. You need to strike a balance in work and home life to deal with the stress. 


In order for me to break the cycle of negativity in my life I need to focus on what good can be done and turn a negative into a positive. These stressful events happened and it has been a constant worry and cause of stress, anxiety, insomnia and paranoia over the years. Stressful events will happen in the future but I will learn to deal positively with them in the future.

I accept that the stressful events happened in my life causing all my pain, suffering and misery and I now let this go to help break that vicious cycle of the uroboros Dragon eating itself in negativity and bring about a positive change in that cycle. Turning the negative uroboros Dragon into a positive cycle Dragon.


I understand that negativity eats away at the soul and you are only hurting yourself by thinking negatively and doing negative thoughts, actions and deeds 


THINK POSITIVE, DO POSITIVE THINGS IN MIND BODY AND SOUL, BRING A BALANCE IN LIFE TO BE AS ONE WITH THE NATURAL ORDER OF THINGS IN LIFE. 


If you are also in a vicious cycle of negativity remember “always look on the bright side of life” as in the words of the life of Brian. This is what my Dad and I sing together to brighten up a dark thought or place. 


A lot of the time it may be a hard thing to do but always seek help because a brighter day will come in your life to overcome your worries and stress.


  

Monty python- always look on the bright side of life lyrics

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best

And always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the light side of life

If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle, that's the thing

And always look on the bright side of life
Come on!
Always look on the right side of life

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow
Forget about your sin
Give the audience a grin
Enjoy it, it's your last chance anyhow

So, always look on the bright side of death
A-just before you draw your terminal breath

Life's a piece of shit
When you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true
You'll see it's all a show
Keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you

And always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the right side of life

C'mon Brian, cheer up!

Always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the bright side of life

Worse things happen at sea, you know
Always look on the bright side of life

I mean, what have you got to lose
You know, you come from nothing, you're going back to nothing
What have you lost? Nothing!

Always look on the right side of life...

Nothing will come from nothing, you know what they say?
Cheer up you old bugger, c'mon give us a grin!
There you are, see, it's the end of the film
Incidentally, this record is available in the foyer
Some of us have to got live as well, you know

Who do you think pays for all this rubbish
They're not gonna make their money back, you know
I told them, I said to them, Bernie, I said they'll never make their money back
