    Taking Requests

    Teal you do such a great job helping people with individual needs and guiding them through relationships. I feel ungrateful asking for more but you used to occasionally drop hints about what you see happening in the world. A while ago you said something about world war 3 and how we don't even realize we are in it. I know you have to steer clear of politics but what do you see that we are blind to? I think it would help if we could all see each others fears. Many of the folks who I disagree with on politics have great fear of the "other" race, color, religion, culture and nationality but they d
  2. I remember being a long haired student walking with friends and a young woman with kids crossed the road to walk on the other side of the street to avoid passing us on the sidewalk. One of my first experiences of being so different that others would fear me. I realized this was what people of color felt when others rejected them just because of their color.

    Yule

    Thank you Teal for healing Christmas and freeing Christmas to be an expression of our souls!

    Christmas Story

    Christmas can be whatever I want it to be! We have an over extended family and so Christmas has become a family event in a much more open ended way than most would imagine with a table filled with those we know have no where else to go and no one else to be family with. The feeling around the table is much more like the true spirit of Christmas than the socially stressful and demanding Christmas that is so common. Make your own family, your own traditions and then you can own Christmas in a whole new way, in a whole new world. Thank you Teal for being the Mother of this Teal Swan Tribe and bri
  5. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Cool Cuanza and a  warm Winter Solstice to you all! Well almost. It's the bottom of the year and I always seem to find myself in a bit of depression with this season of loss of sunlight and loss of Son-light where crass consumerism eclipses the Christian celebration of the birth of the Christ child, God incarnate into the world. This Solstice seems uniquely dark, ominous and auspicious. After a year of Covid pandemic panic, politics and economic depression the potential for WWIII, Armageddon seems appropriate to follow the grand conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn. And yet in spite of all this doom and gloom, hope springs eternal that light follows darkness, joy comes with the morning. How will we transform ourselves and our world with the coming of a new year?  Be Blessed, be a blessing!

  6. Peace; to be able to turn off all the internal dialogue and just feel the oneness and peace. Turn all the prisons into healing centers!

    Haunted Painting

    Thank you Teal for sharing her, she seems so inquisitive wanting to see what's going on around her but the thing that drew my attention was her hands and her fingers. How graceful and sensitive, was she an artist? a seamstress? But on closer inspection her fingers seem out of perspective as though they are moving in some unnatural way. They seem too long to be wholly human and yet so graceful and delicate. And yet, there's pain there too. Take good care of her!
  8. I give up. The stress has gotten to me and I'm ready to quit. Between the Covid threat, the guards, the co-workers, the administration, none of them seem to have my back. I suspect they see me as a threat to the status quo and I learned a long time ago to listen to my gut! It breaks my heart.
  9. What a timely introduction. I've gone back to work in a prison psych unit only to find the addiction treatment to be largely absent due to budget cuts over previous years. I'm lobbying for more addiction treatment where I work and because of my background as a provider administration is responding positively.
  10. Diabetes and addiction have often been compared and I agree there seems to be a link here! I have type 2 diabetes and have to take oral medication daily. That's perfectly acceptable in our society where self-medicating or abusing self with drugs or alcohol is not. But there is a physical link as well. the damage done by years of alcohol abuse can damage the liver and pancreas' ability to function properly and this produces a situation where we must address the lack of healthy function through diet, exercise and medication. Our attitude toward this can be negative, "oh poor me look at all the s

    Why You Get Triggered

    What is really scary is when you see people you work with intentionally triggering their patients not to address the source of those feelings but to exercise their own power and feel superior as therapists.

    Total BS

    BS indeed! We need the concept of forgiveness to give us hope and direction for without forgiveness there is no growth there is no possibility of letting go the hate that can consume our whole existence. I know you know this Teal and i have heard you speak of how your letting go of your abuse and forgiving the abuse freed you to become the spiritual leader you've become today. Yes, forgiveness and "I forgive you." become trite and over simplified to the point of corruption. True forgiveness is a long and messy process which has little to do with the abuser and everything to do with our own per

    Somatic Hallucinations

    Normal learning takes place in the brain as patterns of neurons firing reinforce th neurons ability to produce the neurotransmitter hormones that are required for the neuron to fire. So in the completion process the brain is flooded with neuro transmitters which then allow new pathways to form and begin the process of replacing the old pathways that need to be "unlearned." So during the flood other pathways that have been ignored or repressed also fire and allow us to feel things we had shut off in our brain in order to deal with the overwhelming nature of these sensations. It's kind of like w
  14. Hi Teal, glad to hear you got some time off and wilderness time to feed you soul. I agree we're all in this together and we can help each other over come the gas lighting but my feelings of doom are fed by the reality of the major extinction event we find ourselves in and corona just seems to be a symptom of this larger doom which literally threatens to remove our species as it currently exists on this planet. Can you speak to this?
  15. Thanks Teal, that makes a lot of sense. Wilhelm Reich wrote The mass psychology of Fascism in the '30s detailing how the family structure of an authoritarian father created a society who idealized the strong man/dictator form of government that led to Hitler and the Holocaust. He paralleled the authoritarianism of the family with the authoritarianism in government and showed a relationship between family structure and societal structure. We are struggling to throw off that need for authoritarian rule and become more truly democratic and integrated. I also thing the principal is related to the

    Uncertainty

    so i went back to work recently but i don't think I'm going to last. I applied for a job because I was bored to death with staying home and being quarantined. But, I took a job where i drive an hour and a half to get to work to work in a secure facility with mentally ill prisoners. I love the work but the drive is killing me. I'm talking severe crushing physical fatigue. it interferes with my being able to do my job and all I do otherwise is try to recuperate. If i can't take care of myself how can i take care of others? I think the universe is showing me i can go back to work but that jumping
  17. I think my favorite mineral is Quartz. As a kid it was like a low grade diamond, as an adult I found fascination in how the world looked through it. I knew that what i saw there wasn't the same as what I saw in the world without it. i was also fascinated by quartz ability to give off an electrical current when stressed. i had a quartz radio I built as a kid. No power or battery yet it could sense the radio waves and turn them into a sound I could hear! How does it know? I think my spirit mineral may be iron pyrite or "fool's gold" flashy, sparkly, gold in color but of little worth compare
  18. So what's the up side of all we are going through right now? What with the Corona virus pandemic and the political and social extremism where will we be in a year? 5? 10? What's coming. Seems to me it has to get worse before it can get better. Total Fascist dictatorship and more concentration camps. Government condoned violence toward progressives? Leftist? Socialists? Gays? New and deadlier viruses? Computer viruses? Collapse of civilization? Nuclear war? Famine? when do we come out the other side? Is there a new Eden a new world after the collapse?

    Invisible Trauma

    Isn't this like generational healing where we heal our generational curses, the trauma that's been passed down to us through generations of dysfunction? I think it opens up a huge area of therapeutic visualizations for all sorts of trauma and neglect.

    Hate Is Hurt

    First you'd have to heal their brokenness then they'd begin to see the pain they caused. Because right now all they can see is the pain they feel.

    Hate Is Hurt

    That's when we give away our liberty freedom and power and trade it for safety from people who may not have our best interest at heart.

    Hate Is Hurt

    I'm dealing with this in a very personal way. My (half) brother came to visit in February and is still on the couch. i love the guy but feel thoroughly used and abused both by him and his sisters who dumped him on us without telling us what they'd been dealing with. He needs to be under better care and supervision than we can provide but he's here so we are dealing with it. Corona virus quarantine, social distancing and government services shut down have all contributed to the unworkability of the situation. He is severely depressed and isolating but also I suspect dealing with bi-polar issues

    React VS Respond

    Respond not react! I'm familiar with the concept, I'm also aware of the chess game of manipulation and exploitation that exists within our society. We are certainly justified in being horrified by the violence against people of color and people calling for justice, but if we react against the cops who perpetrate the violence we ignore the underlying culture of racism and authoritarianism that shields and protects the corrupt cops. These cops are reacting to the pain and threats they perceive as a part of their jobs and their bosses, the corrupt racist administrators within the system, shield a
  24. Thank you Teal. I love you Teal. You speak truth to power. I was a part of that mainstream system that's not working and what attracted me to you and your teachings were the many ways in which you saw what I had also discovered from the inside, that the system doesn't work. We are co-dependent on our clients in the counseling field. That professional distance and effectiveness are contradictory. That childhood trauma was at the root of all kinds of mental health issues. The criminal justice system is broken and in need of systemic reform since it has become self perpetuating to the point of ba
  25. I miss you brother. We haven't talked in a long time.
