    Gaslighting and Doom

    Happy Birthday, Blake!!!
  2. I love these videos you and Blake do together! You guys have such a deep friendship - it inspires me! I'm not sure what book or movie would represent my personality... Maybe The Neverending Story. Ever since I read that book when I was 10yo it's been my guide in life. I think about it very often - especially when I'm "going through something." Only within the past 6 years did I realize Bastian's journey in the second half of the book is all about manifestation to heal his traumas. I think that resonates with my conscious focus - I'm always trying to make sense of myself and see how what I'm "going through" relates to things that happened to me in the past. Also, Bastian moves on whim. That's totally me, and it can be super frustrating for people. I have a hard time maintaining a routine because my heart calls me to rearrange things in my life quite often - every 3-6 months. Thanks for the question, Teal! It's fun to think about this stuff!

    Childhood Story

    As a kid and teenager, I was obsessed with the Little Mermaid - both the Disney and Hans Christian Anderson version, although the HCA version resonated more deeply with me. In that version, the Prince marries another woman, the Little Mermaid never gets her voice back, and she ends up killing herself. That definitely matched how I felt with my parents. My dad and I had a "complicated relationship" (ie: covert incest) and I've struggled with feeling enmeshed, treated like a pet (not taken seriously), silenced, and passed-over by men in my life. I had very dark days where I felt powerless and suicidal... It's been a long road to get to the empowered place I am in now (thanks in large part to Teal and the Tribe), and I still have a ways to go before I find a partnership in which I feel respected, taken seriously, listened-to, and chosen by a romantic partner hopefully not much longer!

    Lucid Dreams

    I've had a few dreams where Teal and Blake visited me! It didn't go well... In two of the dreams they were assessing if I'd be able to join them on their mission (Teal looked like the alien in Alien in one), but I couldn't. I was frustrated with their requests and terrified of them. Lol. So weird, because I enjoy following and learning from Teal (and Blake) in my waking life ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Teal's Resistance

    I always like to hear what you're working on personally, Teal. That's what I loved about your old blogs. It helps me feel less alone and like "if she's struggling with these issues, then it's okay if I'm struggling too!"

    Recipe - Teal's Tamales

    I love Graci Thanks for sharing your traditions with us, Graciela! And I hope you guys make more of these videos! I love seeing the community doing stuff together!
  7. I was a little worried to read your blog about Hawaii, Teal, but I'm pleasantly surprised! As a native Polynesian (Samoan), I've seen and felt the exclusion that's inherent in Hawaii. There's a little bit of it in Samoa, but not as much. I think it might be because Hawaii was completely screwed over when they accepted trade deals with the US. The monarch was overthrown by the US - making it essentially stolen land. That exclusion feeling hurts... I danced hula for almost 10 years and never felt like I could get close to the culture. I always felt pushed away. I really really like how you noticed that the plants have very strong spirits! Hawaiian culture (especially through song and dance) treats each plant/flower/wind/rain like a conscious being. I also love that you can feel the kapu (taboo) spells in the land! I felt it SUPER strongly when swimming off the shore in Kona where King Kamehameha used to live. It scared me to my core! Kapu and "spirits" are very strong in Samoa. It almost feels hard to move there because you feel crushed by it - like you're standing in a very crowded room. Fun, I hope you get to do more exploring in the world! I love reading your energetic diagnoses!

    The Re-Do

    So excited for the energy diagnosis of Hawaii! I'm half Polynesian and have always noticed the dissonance in realities between people on Hawaii. It can feel lonely and frustrating. The native Polynesians feel invisible/wronged/pushed aside sometimes, and all locals struggle to make a living (it's so expensive there), while vacationers treat the island like Disneyland, not always appreciating the cultures that have lived and thrived there for generations.

    Follow Your Joy

    So excited for the cookbook!!
  10. I recently got into an "argument" with anti-Tealers on Youtube recently. It's funny, the more the anti-Tealers attack your fans (ie: me), the more dedicated I become to what you stand for, Teal! They're obviously very triggered by you. I pray that they only remain a nuisance and not a danger. Lots of love to you and the Teal Tribe <3

    Snow and Surf

    Within the past month I've finally begun to grasp that my healing journey will never ever end - which has honestly been tormenting me with shame. I've definitely felt like a failure for even needing to be healed or feel better. I've felt like a loser who can't figure out how to be happy. I'm glad I read this blog post again - it helps to remind me that being unhappy is not a failure, it's totally normal, and that I'm going to be riding these waves for the rest of my life. Thank you so much Teal. PS: I view your Spirituality 3.0 as the "how to" for riding those waves!
  12. This idea of empowerment while acknowledging dependence on other people has honestly been a difficult concept for me to grasp. My mind tends to view dependence as a bad thing and independence as a good thing. I definitely think it's due to our Western Society, but it's also due to the emotional incest that I grew up with (which I think is more common in nuclear families than most people will admit). I was taught at a young age that I needed to take care of my parents - be their therapist, marriage counselor, or real-life teddy bear (so icky). Subconsciously, I recognized their inappropriate dependence on me and felt angry at them. I also felt like I couldn't trust them to hold or take care of my needs. I thought "I can handle all their problems AND my own problems all by myself." It's a horribly isolating way to live, but it's definitely encouraged by our society... Anyways, I look up to you, Teal. From your example (and through therapy), I've been opening up more. I've realized that other adults can hold me and my needs. I've also been learning how to have boundaries and be authentic with others. All these things I wouldn't have been able to do on my own. I need relationships with other people to heal, learn, and grow. It's just a balance of not becoming too dependent or independent.
  13. Wow, so many insights in one post: "We do not get better by overriding or overcoming our difficulties. We get better by understanding and accepting them. " " The greatest sense of freedom comes when our actions flow directly from feelings." "But it is universal truth that being productive (doing) is only beneficial if it enhances happiness (being). Individual achievement is only beneficial if it enhances communal harmony. And thinking is only beneficial if it stems from and enhances feeling."

    Thank you, Teal. I love this post <3 Authenticity and realness bring people together. I like the picture of you moping on the ground, haha. I totally relate to that pose/expression. Isn't that funny how seeing someone vulnerable and "not ready for the camera" can make you love them more? see them more? It's something I've been trying as I get stronger - to be open and tell people "I don't feel good right now." Sometimes I get great loving responses. Sometimes people are repulsed by me. It's very interesting. Thank you again for your wonderful teachings. Fa'afetai tele!
  15. I've tried watching Dark Crystal many times, but it was always too frightening for me! I find that interesting... My favorite book and movie growing up was The Neverending Story. I've read that book at least 6 times. It just seemed to hold all the answers for me when I was kid. I could always relate something I was going through at the time to something that happened in the book. Knowing what I know now about how the Universe works, I realize that the book is actually a guide to the different dimensions and follows the main character's shadow-work and healing. I never pieced together until now that the book was a precursor to what I would be doing in my adult life.... Bastian (through following his desires and suffering a ton of expansion) came to love himself for who he truly was and was then able to connect to his depressed father. They were able to truly "see" each other. I definitely feel like my adult life has been focused on healing me so that I can (inadvertently) heal my family traumas. Thanks for this insight, Miss Teal! And I hope you're enjoying your birthday week <3 Signed, -One of your birthday buddies-
