  1. How to control body/mind when intense emotion happen? From my little understanding if you have negative emotions you vent it out to purify the mind. You get negative emotions ingrained in your body(or mental impressions) when object that you are attached to can be taken away. So your ego gets intense reaction. So my goal is to be present to cotrnol body/ming when this intense reaction happens. But intense emotions always happen by surpsise. And when this surprise happens I get stuck in my head. I can see pictures in my head(attachment being taken away). But after that I am like in a sleep/dream. It's like I am in someone's body and just looking as a watcher. And autonomous nervous system(or ego) gets control over the body and reacts to environment.
  2. Bulldozing usually refers to not accommodating others but by far the more important form of bulldozing, is the bulldozing we do to ourselves. We grew up in situations where our emotions were not ok. In order to stay safe in those situations we would bulldoze our own emotions in order to stay safe and avoid conflict. Teal Swan explains how learning to recognize the ways we bulldoze ourselves and others, and stopping this pattern within ourselves is key to integration as well as health and happiness.

  3. How to Overcome the eating order Bulimia is a video in which Teal Swan explains how to heal from bulimia. Bulimia is largely connected to the childhood experience of being Gaslit and gaslighting. Bulimia is closely tied to your experience of love and intimate relationships. If as a child your boundaries were violated and your needs were ignored your reality was not validated you may have developed the coping mechanism to control the intake of energy and developed an unhealthy relationship with food, therefore causing Bulimia and Bulimic tendencies.

  4. How to Find Your Way Back to Connection Loneliness is reaching endemic proportions in our society, reflected by rising suicide rates and increased mental illness. Now, more than ever we need to find a way to connect. The pain of the human condition is that we walk this earth with multiple billions of other people and yet each of us feels alone. The Anatomy of Loneliness is for people who suffer from loneliness, the kind that cannot be solved by simply being around other people. Their aloneness is a deeply embedded pattern that is both negative and painful; it is often fuelled by trauma, loss, addiction, grief and a lack of self-esteem and insecurity. In The Anatomy of Loneliness, Teal identifies the three pillars of loneliness: Separation, Shame and Fear and goes on to share her revolutionary healing technique; The Connection Process, that guides the reader through a series of exercises, helping them to face their fears and, ultimately to experience connection once again. Teal demonstrates that in order to be loved to our core, we have to risk exposing it, be prepared to show our vulnerability and that owning our shame is the key to ending it. She also shows us that there is a difference between what actually happens to us and the meaning we make of it and it’s important to decipher what’s ‘ours’ and what is ‘theirs’ in any given conflict. Teal explains that Intimacy can be broken down into three very important syllables: “into me see” and for real intimacy to exist we need to see into each other for who we truly are and listen to the feelings beyond the words. All pain in this world is initiated by some kind of separation. Separation from our source, separation from our essence, separation from our mothers, separation from ourselves, separation from what we fear and separation from what we love until we ultimately find ourselves shrouded in loneliness. The Anatomy of Loneliness leads us back to connection and tells us that every moment is a choice to close or to open. Teal ends by telling us to find people who have chosen the path of connection and let them walk beside us, hand-in-hand, into the world. In order to find them, we need to be brave enough to connect, be brave enough to love.

  5. The New Ask Teal Episode on How to Follow Your Joy doesn't always work was made in regards to using your emotions as a compass. Perhaps you have noticed that you have tried following your joy over and over again and are confused because if all you need to find happiness is to Follow your Joy, why isn't it working? In this episode, Teal Swan explains why. It is because your "compass" being your emotional guidance system has been messed with.

  8. Healing your mind and how to heal your mind lies in this exercise of presence and an inner journey work process relative to your mind specifically.

  9. The Silence Technique by Teal Swan. Sometimes words actually hurt relationships because they are used to cover up our emotions rather than authentically communicate our emotions to the other person. This technique of silence is used to follow our feelings and emotions and cut through the words that sometimes confuse rather than help. Teal Swan is an International Spiritual Leader.

  11. Why Don’t We Recognize Our Own Positive Emotions? It is sometimes easier to recognize and appreciate positive emotions in others than ourselves. We say or think things like, that person is so loving, or so appreciative, or so happy. We may be impressed by those feelings in others, but dismiss the importance of, or even not recognize, those emotions in ourselves. At least, I know I do that sometimes, and I think others do that too. Many people, including myself, will be more alert to the sensation of negative emotions like anger, frustration and fear. We can feel the effect on our body, and take note of it to alert us that something is “wrong”, that we are disturbed or stressed by something we are thinking. But will not, as a general rule, take note of positive emotions the same way. They will not alert of us of something being “right”. So what is that about? Why don’t we recognize our own positive emotions as much as negative ones? That is, for those of us who do that? Some others will suppress the negative emotions, which is not healthy either. Both positive and negative feelings are beneficial to notice. Maybe we ignore positive emotions because as children we were just expected to be happy, and therefor it was considered the “normal” state? Or perhaps it is different reasons for different people? I really don’t know. But one thing seems certain. We can only ever truly experience our own emotions. And I think when we don’t really recognize or appreciate our own positive emotions, we are missing out on the best thing life has to offer. We are missing the opportunity to feel the positive all there is. Seeing someone else as loving, appreciative or happy is great. But deeply feeling these and other positive emotions in ourselves, that’s where we connect with our own divine nature. I think that this direct experience of positive emotions is where we tap into the energy and inspiration to be our best selves. And to be most helpful to ourselves and others. There is a lot that goes into understanding emotions, our own and others, and their importance, and how to change emotions. Below are links some of Teal’s work on the subject. I look forward to hearing your thoughts, and hope that what I wrote is helpful.

  12. Emotional Processing: Integration vs. Release Hey Fellow Teal Tribers, I´m 17 years old, almost 18, currently facing a major emotional obstacle in my life and thought maybe some extra guidance and opinions from you guys might be of value. It´s honestly really weing me down and I can´t seem to continue with my development and overall life journey. I feel stuck unable to make any decision. I´ve been meditating for about 7-8 months now on a consistent daily basis. (At least 20 minutes, most of the times an hour, up to 4 hours a day.) I can really feel that my awareness has been growing. On the spiritual and Personal Development journey I´ve been for about a year and a few months now with growing ambition and commitment. At the moment my motivation for all this is primarily to solve my emotional and the other psychological issues in connection to that like self esteem, self trust, self worth, self confidence, authentic values, self image and so on and so forth. For about 10 days now I can feel a rather strong pressure in the area of my throat eminating from my heart. I´m convinced that those are suppressed emotions and feelings of grief, hurt, shame, despair, disappointment, betrayal, guilt, helplesnes/powerlesness/hopelessness, ignored, inadequatness, misunderstood, sadness, unhappiness, depression, insecurity and resentment. Emotions which I had to suppress in my past in order to survive in unpleasant environments which seemed unsolvable at that time. I suppressed and denied these emotions in order to cope with the stressfull circumstances I was faced with in order to still survive and develop but now it this previous decision is the very reason my development and wellbeing is blocked. I feel frozen, often lethargic and depressed, sometimes suicidal. Whatever you resist persist. ^^ The emotions are like an anker that I can´t seem to let go of. In some rare moments the wall breaks open like for instance when I watch a movie and am touched by something than I start to feel the whole capacity of these suppressed feelings but overall they´re still inside me. Every time I tried to fully allow them something in me was immidietly desperate to get out of them again and so I sucked them back up. My awareness is at the point were I can feel which thougts cause my being to suppress and resist the emotions and what other effects on my health this has in my experience. Besides meditation I introspect, go regularily to psychotherapy, eat a pretty damn healthy vegan diet, use disidentification or otherwise known non attachment, investigate my belief systems, judgements, meanings, shoulds, musts, can´ts, especially in regard to emotions to allow them and to stop seing them as an enemy, and of course study Personal Development, Spirituality and other topics from different sources to broaden my mind and fix my problems...or better said transform them. I think it´s obvious for all of us that it´s very unwise to resist your negative emotion. Like I said it was necessary for myself, and for pretty much any one to one degree or anoter to survive in the past, but in the long run it just weighs one down and blocks his or her capability to be an open, loving and joyful human being at his or her peak performance. These emotions are suppressed by resistant thoughts towards them and also my mind still thinks it has to be going back into these previous stressfull which cause feelings of Shame, Fear, Disease, Insecurity, Doubt, Uncertainty, Powerlesness and Despair relative to those suppressed emotions. Certain Paradimes also contribute to the resistance. Basically a layer on top of them. For that reason as I said I started to change my beliefs and meanings regarding emotions so the resistance would vanish and allow me to let go of them. But of course this easier said than done thanks to survival mechanism, subconcious mind, ego attachments etc. Basically every endeveaour attempting to change the circumstance feels completely useless...merely theoretical against these strong walls. It´s like flying with a fly against a f**king tank. I think resistance present in me towards it not working out and uncertainty also contribute to this block. A part of me is terribly afraid of the consequences of letting go and also doesn´t want to feel the emotions which seemed so unsolvable earlier in life. It feels like my whole safety and all the other psychological needs are connected to these suppressed emotions. A very strong fear of being abandondent if I allow, let go and follow my own path from childhood and early teenhood. I honestly still feel pretty damn victimized in this area of my life and because of this to life in general. Teal teaches the concept of using the suppressed and triggered emotion to access the traumatic memory which caused the emotion to be suppressed in the first place and follow a process to undo the trauma and so integrate the emotional wound in The Completion Process (Shadow Work). She also claims that these suppressed emotions and unresolved traumas are the major cause for other health and overall life problems because the law of attraction mirrors them back in your reality and these emotions restrict the flow of source energy into your being because you are in a state of resistance. My other ressources speak of similar ideas even though with slight variables. In his vide "How To Deal With Strong Negative Emotions" Leo Gura (Actualized.org) describes a very simple yet as he says effective process to allow, surrender and let go of our negative emotions. Eckhart Tolle also speaks of simply allowing and surrendering to the emotion in his book The Power of Now so does Michael Brown in his book The Presence Process. Osho speaks of just being a wittness with a meditative awareness to the wall and let your awareness eventually cut through it. All these processes have in common that it´s essential to release resistance to were you are, to surrender and by that let go. Personally I resonate with this 100% and I also belief that thoughts and emotions can have tremendous impacts on our health either beneficial or detremental. I also belief in the fact that these suppressed emotions cause external problems to manifest. So this part is clear but what about revisiting a traumatic memory and changing it ? Has anyone of you ever done this succesfully ? And if so how did you release your various points of reistance successfully ? Right now it seems like an almost impossible endavour to me to do so. The next question I have regarding to this whole issue is in regards to the work of Dr. Bradley Nelson. If you are not familiar with him he is an energetic healer and in his book The Emotion Code, which is considered to be revolutionary in the field of energetic healing, he talks about the concept of trapped emotions and the heart wall. He as well as Teal Swan, also speaks that these trapped emotions cause health problems, mental illness and also problems which interfer with manifesting the kind of life you desire. Teal even mentioned Dr. Bradley Nelson in her video How To Open Your Heart Chakra. His method is to communicate with the subconcious mind via muscle testing and then release these trapped emotions and the heartwall through magnets in a matter of seconds. You can do this yourself. I´m currently reading The Emotion Code so at this point I´m not entirely sure how it works. At the moments to me this sounds quit like magic and I can´t really believe it. Has anyone any kind of experience with this ? If so was it succesfully ? In meditation I tried to intuitevely explore the issue by visualzing my emotions, blockages and my heartwall. For example if I´m correct my heartwall is about 50 kilometers thick made out of granit, fire and ice...wtf. Currently I don´t know what to make out of this. Is surrendering, allowing and integreation of a suppressed and unresolved emotion a contradiction to releasing trapped emotion and come from different points of view and understanding of the human system or are these just seeming oppositions and are instead complimentary contradictions. If so how can you use both processes and if when to know which one is appropriate to the circumstance ? I believe than healing your unresolved emotional wounds is the single most essential step on this journey and on the path of life in general. Only then we can forgive those you have hurt us. Only then can we life accoding to our values and our integrity, in essence in alignemnt with our authentic self. Only then we can create the kind of fullfilling, joyfull and purpose driven life we came here to life and all want to create. Only then we can know and get what we want and need without feeling guilty, afraid or ashamed about it. Only then we can become whole again. We as people need to take this step otherwise any other step on this journey will be almost pointless. Clouded by misonception and continous misjudgment stemming from the neurotic desire to escape our pain which really is just a part of us escaping ourselves. This we have to understand is an effort we can´t take part in long and it´s also not worth it. Prcessing these emotions is essential otherwise no change can really take place because you´ll be blocked and without guidance in the vast ocean of life. We can´t build a positive self image if we desperately resist and try to get away of the emotional side in us. We can´t try to solve any of your problems if we don´t do this. We hold the power to claim back our freedom and create the kind of life we want even though often times it doesn´t seem like that. So the question only stands...HOW to really do it succesfully ? Are you aware of any other valuable tools and processes regarding the healing and integration of unresolved emotional wounds ? If so please post them I´m very interested in a discussion and various opinions.

  14. Terrified. Hi, i don't think i can explain myself, don't really know where to start so in trying to come up with a simplified explanation to post, "terrified" is the truest thing i can find to start from. i have a few questions about the completion process / living in general on relation to this terror. i found Teal's video on what to do when feeling suicidal one day and (when i can find space between destruction, denial, and desperate attempts to cope less destructive lying with life) ive watched a few more trying to find some way forward from my self built hell. Trying to keep a long story short, all of the advice in the videos and the completion process seem to rely on being able to face your feelings. My inability /unwillingness to face my feelings is exactly what is ruining my life. (i am ruining my life, that is a big how). It is beyond pathetic and in general i feel like a monster who needs to be gotten rid of for being this disgusting and weak, but i am terrified of myself, of my feelings, of reality and im afraid that means im completely hopeless. That is where the FIRST QUESTION comes in. i wish i could explain in a word because no one will understand and no one has reason or time to read even if i could explain myself. im wondering why people "trust the process" as Teal says in one emotion based video? As in, i believe that truth and integrating all parts of yourself in this is the only way to live as a good person, free, im so grateful for Teal's voice hopefully nudging the importance of that truth into our world, but i don't at all trust my ability to do the right thing when faced with my emotions, when faced with reality. At worst, and for a lot of feelings, i fear it will lead me to the knowledge that i am not good enough, it will let me see how bad and wrong i am and how much hurt and badness i have caused and am causing by allowing this monster that i am to exist. Then i have to die. i have ruined my life by ignoring my feelings (starting 10years ago, after previously living by trying to uphold "truth goodness beauty", in psychiatric treatment for an eating disorder the denial started, where recovery=ignoring negative feelings and thoughts and lying to yourself ) and now i spend all my time running from the horrible truth in order to survive. i see other people live, alive, feeling, growing and it amazes me, the beauty and strength in people literally amazes me. If i feel my feelings and see reality the only thing i'll see is that i should be dead. i know other people might use that realisation to transform into a better person who deserves to live but i don't do that so facing reality is essentially suicide to me. Is the entire process based on the assumption that a person is strong and good enough to be able to handle and transform the feelings and truths they are working with? That if they go into a feeling they will survive it? Because i feel 100% incapable of that growth. THE SECOND QUESTION : i have no job or income and in desperation was thinking of trying the completion process by myself (depending on the answer to my first question on feelings) but my parents offered me the last of my mother's money for her hip surgery for reduced cost counselling (75euro altogether) and i was wondering if it would be worth using that for a private session with Teal instead? As in would one session be enough for real change, especially considering that my issues are probably complex and up against much resistance because of how weak and pathetic i am? And finally if it would be worth it, how do i contact Teal about a session? If i think about anything clearly it all says die. Don't post pathetic questions to strangers, don't pretend you can get better, stop holding off the inevitable and fighting the violent hate, just kill yourself already. But the part of me that realises how beautiful and wonderful and amazing life is, how lucky i am to have the parents, partner and life i have, how they deserve better, the part that really does love my partner and my family and would love to be a strong, giving, loving, capable person who is GOOD for all that she loves is the one writing this shit and still looking for a way forward even though it all feels wrong and hopeless. Thank you if you took the time to read this. X x

I´m convinced that those are suppressed emotions and feelings of grief, hurt, shame, despair, disappointment, betrayal, guilt, helplesnes/powerlesness/hopelessness, ignored, inadequatness, misunderstood, sadness, unhappiness, depression, insecurity and resentment. Emotions which I had to suppress in my past in order to survive in unpleasant environments which seemed unsolvable at that time. I suppressed and denied these emotions in order to cope with the stressfull circumstances I was faced with in order to still survive and develop but now it this previous decision is the very reason my development and wellbeing is blocked. I feel frozen, often lethargic and depressed, sometimes suicidal. Whatever you resist persist. ^^ The emotions are like an anker that I can´t seem to let go of. In some rare moments the wall breaks open like for instance when I watch a movie and am touched by something than I start to feel the whole capacity of these suppressed feelings but overall they´re still inside me. Every time I tried to fully allow them something in me was immidietly desperate to get out of them again and so I sucked them back up. My awareness is at the point were I can feel which thougts cause my being to suppress and resist the emotions and what other effects on my health this has in my experience. Besides meditation I introspect, go regularily to psychotherapy, eat a pretty damn healthy vegan diet, use disidentification or otherwise known non attachment, investigate my belief systems, judgements, meanings, shoulds, musts, can´ts, especially in regard to emotions to allow them and to stop seing them as an enemy, and of course study Personal Development, Spirituality and other topics from different sources to broaden my mind and fix my problems...or better said transform them. I think it´s obvious for all of us that it´s very unwise to resist your negative emotion. Like I said it was necessary for myself, and for pretty much any one to one degree or anoter to survive in the past, but in the long run it just weighs one down and blocks his or her capability to be an open, loving and joyful human being at his or her peak performance. These emotions are suppressed by resistant thoughts towards them and also my mind still thinks it has to be going back into these previous stressfull which cause feelings of Shame, Fear, Disease, Insecurity, Doubt, Uncertainty, Powerlesness and Despair relative to those suppressed emotions. Certain Paradimes also contribute to the resistance. Basically a layer on top of them. For that reason as I said I started to change my beliefs and meanings regarding emotions so the resistance would vanish and allow me to let go of them. But of course this easier said than done thanks to survival mechanism, subconcious mind, ego attachments etc. Basically every endeveaour attempting to change the circumstance feels completely useless...merely theoretical against these strong walls. It´s like flying with a fly against a f**king tank. I think resistance present in me towards it not working out and uncertainty also contribute to this block. A part of me is terribly afraid of the consequences of letting go and also doesn´t want to feel the emotions which seemed so unsolvable earlier in life. It feels like my whole safety and all the other psychological needs are connected to these suppressed emotions. A very strong fear of being abandondent if I allow, let go and follow my own path from childhood and early teenhood. I honestly still feel pretty damn victimized in this area of my life and because of this to life in general. Teal teaches the concept of using the suppressed and triggered emotion to access the traumatic memory which caused the emotion to be suppressed in the first place and follow a process to undo the trauma and so integrate the emotional wound in The Completion Process (Shadow Work). She also claims that these suppressed emotions and unresolved traumas are the major cause for other health and overall life problems because the law of attraction mirrors them back in your reality and these emotions restrict the flow of source energy into your being because you are in a state of resistance. My other ressources speak of similar ideas even though with slight variables. In his vide "How To Deal With Strong Negative Emotions" Leo Gura (Actualized.org) describes a very simple yet as he says effective process to allow, surrender and let go of our negative emotions. Eckhart Tolle also speaks of simply allowing and surrendering to the emotion in his book The Power of Now so does Michael Brown in his book The Presence Process. Osho speaks of just being a wittness with a meditative awareness to the wall and let your awareness eventually cut through it. All these processes have in common that it´s essential to release resistance to were you are, to surrender and by that let go. Personally I resonate with this 100% and I also belief that thoughts and emotions can have tremendous impacts on our health either beneficial or detremental. I also belief in the fact that these suppressed emotions cause external problems to manifest. So this part is clear but what about revisiting a traumatic memory and changing it ? Has anyone of you ever done this succesfully ? And if so how did you release your various points of reistance successfully ? Right now it seems like an almost impossible endavour to me to do so. The next question I have regarding to this whole issue is in regards to the work of Dr. Bradley Nelson. If you are not familiar with him he is an energetic healer and in his book The Emotion Code, which is considered to be revolutionary in the field of energetic healing, he talks about the concept of trapped emotions and the heart wall. He as well as Teal Swan, also speaks that these trapped emotions cause health problems, mental illness and also problems which interfer with manifesting the kind of life you desire. Teal even mentioned Dr. Bradley Nelson in her video How To Open Your Heart Chakra. His method is to communicate with the subconcious mind via muscle testing and then release these trapped emotions and the heartwall through magnets in a matter of seconds. You can do this yourself. I´m currently reading The Emotion Code so at this point I´m not entirely sure how it works. At the moments to me this sounds quit like magic and I can´t really believe it. Has anyone any kind of experience with this ? If so was it succesfully ? In meditation I tried to intuitevely explore the issue by visualzing my emotions, blockages and my heartwall. For example if I´m correct my heartwall is about 50 kilometers thick made out of granit, fire and ice...wtf. Currently I don´t know what to make out of this. Is surrendering, allowing and integreation of a suppressed and unresolved emotion a contradiction to releasing trapped emotion and come from different points of view and understanding of the human system or are these just seeming oppositions and are instead complimentary contradictions. If so how can you use both processes and if when to know which one is appropriate to the circumstance ? I believe than healing your unresolved emotional wounds is the single most essential step on this journey and on the path of life in general. Only then we can forgive those you have hurt us. Only then can we life accoding to our values and our integrity, in essence in alignemnt with our authentic self. Only then we can create the kind of fullfilling, joyfull and purpose driven life we came here to life and all want to create. Only then we can know and get what we want and need without feeling guilty, afraid or ashamed about it. Only then we can become whole again. We as people need to take this step otherwise any other step on this journey will be almost pointless. Clouded by misonception and continous misjudgment stemming from the neurotic desire to escape our pain which really is just a part of us escaping ourselves. This we have to understand is an effort we can´t take part in long and it´s also not worth it. Prcessing these emotions is essential otherwise no change can really take place because you´ll be blocked and without guidance in the vast ocean of life. We can´t build a positive self image if we desperately resist and try to get away of the emotional side in us. We can´t try to solve any of your problems if we don´t do this. We hold the power to claim back our freedom and create the kind of life we want even though often times it doesn´t seem like that. So the question only stands...HOW to really do it succesfully ? Are you aware of any other valuable tools and processes regarding the healing and integration of unresolved emotional wounds ? If so please post them I´m very interested in a discussion and various opinions.
  16. Emotional Processing: Integration vs. Release Hey Fellow Teal Tribers, I´m 17 years old, almost 18, currently facing a major emotional obstacle in my life and thought maybe some extra guidance and opinions from you guys might be of value. It´s honestly really weing me down and I can´t seem to continue with my development and overall life journey. I feel stuck unable to make any decision. I´ve been meditating for about 7-8 months now on a consistent daily basis. (At least 20 minutes, most of the times an hour, up to 4 hours a day.) I can really feel that my awareness has been growing. On the spiritual and Personal Development journey I´ve been for about a year and a few months now with growing ambition and commitment. At the moment my motivation for all this is primarily to solve my emotional and the other psychological issues in connection to that like self esteem, self trust, self worth, self confidence, authentic values, self image and so on and so forth. For about 10 days now I can feel a rather strong pressure in the area of my throat eminating from my heart.

  17. Power of Now Vs Completion process I'll start off this topic by saying I'm confused. After viewing teal's video on spirituality 2.0 and on the basis of "running into the storm" by that and her book which share the same line, I understand that this means to be with and immerse yourself in these emotions and to bring them unconditional love etc.. However this is, to me, seemingly the opposite of Eckhart Tolle's- The power of Now, which in its core really dictates "becoming the watcher" and to what I can only interpret as staying out of your emotions and keeping in the Now. Teal In 2.0 states that this sort of method will only lead to the abandonment of your emotions and the now. Spirituality 2.0 video These two spiritual teachers have lead me to be confused, not knowing my path to take. Ultimately I have wanted to achieve 3.0 and can see it is easiest through Eckhart and The power of now- but I fear abandoning my emotions and contradicting the very thing I had set out to do. What does everyone here think is better and will lead me (and others) down the right path.
  18. I can not connect with my emotions Hello, I did therapy for many years to heal problems of my childhood. I cry whenever I want, but I still have a problem in relating to people. I know why that is, I know all my childhood memories and my traumas. Now the problem is that when I try to do the completion process I can not connect with the emotions to heal them. I guess I cried too much during my years of therapy or I have a defense mechanism in which I disassociated myself from the trauma. Can I follow the process yet without feeling a deep emotion in this case? (Sorry for my inglish.)
  19. Your emotions are also the doorway to discovering the subconscious limitations you have which are preventing your happiness in life. Not being in touch with your emotions in life is similar to being stranded in a foreign wilderness without a compass. In this episode, Teal explains how to feel your emotions and what to do it you can’t feel your emotions. Teal Swan is an International Spiritual Leader. She offers perspective on a wide range of topics including relationships, anxiety, meditation, shadow work, the law of attraction, The Completion Process, healing, PTSD, emotions and spirituality.

  20. Healing crisis When trying to incorporate shadow work into my "normal" (still in the system,doing college) life, it sometimes feels like it's all making me more weak and tired (discovering my shadows). I've awakened in the past year so much,yet facing all of that pain, my father's death for the first time after few years...it feels like it's too much. As a very spiritual person of course I've had problems with belonging to this system,time and space and now on the verge of becoming independent (I'm 20) I feel like I need to focus on other things more,even though it feels like I could just sit,or sleep with some of those emotions forever. I also have a difficult time facing dark and cold weather,maybe it's that,how do you deal with it?
  21. In this episode, Teal Swan shows us a meditation we can use to dramatically increase our self-awareness. Teal Swan explains that we can begin to develop self-awareness through this self-awareness meditation that is designed to allow us to communicate with our own embodiment.

  22. These last few weeks I have been feeling very emotional. I am crying so easily at a lot of things, that which would not usually bother me. I am not pregnant, but I am experiencing a lot of energy change, and the universe is now forcing me to adjust my vibration so I can expand. But it has been very painful. I'm wondering if anyone else has been experiencing this, and how they are dealing with it.
  23. so 16 weeks of this Dr. Emoto rice experiment and yeah its true that emotions can effect the physical. (as you can see from the picture above) for the people who do this and it doesn't work, its probably because you are thinking of an emotion and not actually feeling it? Anyways, I did this to prove to myself that emotions do effect the body and I knew this already, but the brain needs proof, so here's my proof, its all a theory until you see it for yourself, so mind creates reality yadayada, so I do hate that this is a mirror and what I think inside reflects outward so it is all me doing this. so I still don't know how to love attentions, as a kid I just wanted to disappear, that's it, I hate attention and what you resist....(persists) Yeah all that shit is true. so please give me suggestions on why attention is okay so I can heal this shit in me already, I resist it like crazy. the body is like a compass and its in a state of dis ease when it wants you to pay attention. so I still hate attention, but that's what I create, so please how do I love attention? Look at that bullshit on my face from not wanting to be seen and resisting, I'm telling you from experience that emotions and all that do effect the body. Its annoying that it works that way, but it does. the idea of loving attentions sounds horrible, so give me idea how to change my ideas and beliefs on attention. Teal if you can drop in and speak about this that would be cool too lol. if not that's fine too.
  24. I have always wanted to be enlightened - from the beggining , at peace with my mind, and tune all bad thoughts and memories, so i will not dawn in the fear, pain and hatred of myself. I ajourned this journey - this journey of life, that was until, I was blessed. I had found spirituality, given a real reaon to walk. But now as I try opening my heart chakra, I am at endless odds, When I opened it, when I thought I could trust those I loved, they didn't care in the slightest, they were still angry, still ignorant, and still hated me. And still I am at odds with the thiniest of emotions; I feel like am pushed and pulled between love and hate, I don't know what to do.
