    Dear Teal, thank you for sharing your pain as you have shared so much in the most amazingly authentic way ever. May both of you Be Blessed, you are both a blessing to me together or apart, Be Blessed!

    Choice Teal, In your most recent video you say you are choice. In a previous video you talked about an outpouring of Christ Consciousness in the world and that it's about choice. Seems to be a connection there. Care to elaborate? Seems to me we are all on the same path, track, frequency. Original sin was eating of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, dichotomy, dualism. By eliminating fragmentation in the self do we end sin and become perfect? I suspect it's more a process of perfecting or approaching perfection. Perfect, peace. perfect joy, perfect love! Potential...

    The pain we feel is the signpost to what we must heal. Face your pain, seek it's source, give that to God, let it go and come out the other side healed and whole! Simple but not easy. Don't give up, don't let go, stand up, speak up, someone needs to know that they are not alone!

    You speak of your friends, you miss them are they not your soul family? Get involved with groups of people who have similar concerns to yours. Health spirituality nutrition, environmentalism etc. Listen with your heart. Who gives you peace? Joy? Comfort? Follow your heart, enjoy the ride! Peace...

    Hi Andi, It makes perfect sense. I come from a Christian tradition having spent 15 years as a part time pastor in the Methodist Church while working full time as a substance abuse councilor. I found few people in the church really wanted to talk about spirituality. Before that i spent many years exploring alternatives, including Eastern religions, meditation, pagan traditions, esp, mind altering drugs etc. When I discovered Teal I was watching Ram Dass on U-Tube. She was saying things i had come to understand while counseling that weren't in the psychological literature! I jokingly say I speak psychology and religion and can sometimes translate between the two. But it's true, have a broad base from which to observe people and their spirituality really helps. One of the things i had to do in my recovery (24 years clean sober and tobacco free April 1st!) was to learn how to play, it helps to be able to laugh at yourself and it helps when you can consciously choose to play the fool to show others how up tight they are, and how to let go. Seems like others want in on this! I'll email you. Be blessed, enjoy the ride... .

    Hi Andi, You ask for like minded friends but don't say what you are like. So i looked at your profile and noticed your inner child wanting to be seen loved and validated by your parents. Perhaps I could be a surrogate parent, I could love and validate your inner child, even if they can't . If that sounds good to you reply here and I'll email you! Be blessed!

    Love the Hulk. He's angry because he's afraid he's lost his life forever. Give it back to him, show him he's loved, show him he's beautiful. Remember beauty and the Beast? King Kong? Twas beauty soothed the savage breast... The Hulk is the child hiding behind the anger. He's angry because he feels shamed! @toemilyjune sound familiar?

    I remember the anxiety, agitation i felt just before Mt St Helens blew her top. This feels like that. At the time I left Oregon and came back to Florida for a family visit. This time there doesn't seem to be any place to go. @candie.mcmullen sounds like you are feeling the same thing. I went to Guatemala last summer for the same reason, in part, but i ended up coming back to Florida again. I remember the heart sinking feeling seeing the concentric circles in the picture in the paper drawn around Havana, Cuba during the Cuban missile crisis labeled short, medium and long range nuclear weapons. Tallahassee was well within the medium range circle and the capital of Florida! But Hey! God's in charge and He sends me where he needs me so... Be blessed, be a blessing.

    Sorry i'm not familiar with either Constable or Clary and it's been years since I read Wilhelm Reich. Have you read "The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bi-cameral mind"?
  10. Pastor George

    yes , you are right most Christians take this literally. I think Teal has related this to oneness in the sense that Christ's crucifixion and resurrection are an example of oneness with God, source, universe, and that death is merely a transition from one state of being to another. Taking on Christ, accepting the Holy Spirit is becoming one with God while still in the flesh. Jesus often spoke of the Kingdom of God (or Kingdom of heaven) as being close to us at times while in this world. That implies that the Kingdom is a state of mind or relationship with Christ that we can take in to our selves or open ourselves to that makes us conscious of God. "To know God" (or to know the mind of God) is to become one with God while still in the flesh. Much of pre-Christian Jewish rituals were for the purpose of atonement for sin. That word atonement can be broken down as at-one-ment. Blood sacrifices were made by priests at the alter to atone of the sins of the people. Jesus the man when crucified becomes the atonement for all sins of all people for all time. All we have to do is accept the offering, sacrifice, blood as atonement for our sins. Sin then is anything that separates us from God, from becoming one with God. Ego, egotism selfishness, self-centeredness certainly separates us from God, from the divine, from all things spiritual and holy! Hope this helps! Be Blessed, be a blessing.

    Absolutely! Jesus in his awakened state that he could set the world free from Roman domination, not through earthly war, rebellion, conflict, but with spiritual enlightenment. It was only by his willingness to become the sacrifice for the sins of the world that he could release the spirit into the world to give anyone who would accept it the light of his love ie enlightenment. Christ Consciousness.

    To me, Christ Consciousness is having a personal relationship with God (or Source, or the Universe) through the Holy Spirit. Most people use Christ as synonymous with Jesus or as though it were his last name or title. Christ means anointed or anointing. In ancient Jewish tradition oil was poured on the head of one attaining high spiritual office or recognition and was symbolic of the spirit of God being poured into them. Jesus the man is referred to as the anointed Son of God only after he is Baptized and accepted the Spirit of God which is said to have descended on him like a dove. Christ Consciousness now is accepting that same spirit, same anointing, that same Baptism of the Spirit and becoming, like Jesus, conscious of your relationship with God on a spiritual (4th dimensional) level. It is what being a Christian is supposed to be about. Sadly the institutional church has a different and more self serving view. Thanks for asking! Be Blessed.

    It's Sunday morning and I just finished reading my morning devotional. In a few hours I will be going to church. Friday I was at Celebrate Recovery, a christian 12 step program and it's all started sounding trite and formulaic. There was a time when I needed it but now listening to Teal it's hard to accept it without seeing the self-serving hypocrisy that has been institutionalized within it. I still believe in God though my understanding of God continues to grow and expand to include concepts of Source, Universal Mind etc. I am still a follower of Christ and serving God by serving others. I strive to stay in the church so as to point out those contradictions that keep us coming back to being the Pharisees for the next generation's innovations. I explore outside the church so as to understand what is going on in the outside world. I explore within myself so as to understand who I am and why I feel the way I do. I feel torn, as though i am being unfaithful, but that's only because the institutionalized true believers demand unquestioning obedience. Sorry, that's not me! I have to go through the tough stuff in order to find the peace the lies on the other side.

    You can do something about that. You can point it out and help him deal with it on a conscious level.

    Hi Kels, It sounds like the anxiety you are feeling is due to the fear that your bf's financial issues will negatively impact your relationship with each other. If you try to fix it for him you run the risk of making him feel dependent, ashamed and resentful toward you. If you don't offer something you risk being seen as cold and uncaring. I am a firm believer that until the pain of being where we are is greater than our fear of change we will continue to wallow in our misery and complain loudly hoping for sympathy and pity that helps us avoid change. The universe may be pushing your bf into a situation where the pain is so great he finally has to do something about his finances. Your mission if you choose to accept it is to be emotionally supportive and encouraging him to find a solution. Support him emotionally but not financially. Lots of tools out there including Teal's YouTube videos on money and prosperity. I say all this knowing that i don't know either of you but I believe you are both bright, energetic and persistent people who together can find a way. Someone once said to me about work: "find something you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life." I've been blessed with a number of different careers that I've loved. I believe he will too.
