  1. Isolation and being stuck I know it's not a new topic, but... I feel stuck. It’s unbearable to stay alone and impossible to reach out. This emotional isolation is suffocating. I have no clue how to trust people, how to receive love, so recently I’ve just shut myself away from people. In many relationships I was usually the giver, receiving nothing in return. I’ve done some shadow work but reached the point when it’s way too painful. It’s so painful to crave genuine connection and being terrified of it, not believing it’s possible to get it anyway. There’s part of me that even doesn’t want to write this post. Can anyone relate? What do you do when you feel so stuck?
  2. The separation of calling ourselves lightworkers I can sense there is something wrong with using the term lightworkers - as spiritual people, healers, guides etc. Teal made a comment in one of her interviews (I hope I can remember this correctly), about how using the term and language of being a lightworker can create a very wide gap between people. As people who work in this field do we therefore have a responsibility not to use this term (that creates separation) and to encourage something else? Such as oneness. Does anyone else think also this is an incorrect way to reference people/ourselves in the spiritual/new age industry? I heard someone say recently and I sense it to be true, that none of us are awake until all of us are awake, which further justifies why using the term lightworker doesn’t really make any sense, right?
  3. This guest at the Chicago Synchronization Workshop asked how to recover her self worth from being attached to productivity.

  5. Understanding School Shooters and how to prevent school shootings begins with understanding the school shooter’s emotional dynamics and emotional upbringing and surprisingly has nothing to do with guns or anti-gun sentiment. School Shooters are often isolated in a world unto themselves even when surrounded by other people. They feel misunderstood and like no one can feel their pain. Teal Swan discusses the emotional dynamics that create and sustain school shooters. Teal Swan is an International Spiritual Leader.

  6. Processes Hi, I want to start doing emotional processes like the CP with other ppl. I have been into spirituality for years now, but I find that I expand faster and understand more when other ppl do processes with me. If anyone is interested in having an emotional process buddy to do processes on themselves sent me a personal message please. ? p.s. the processes will most likely happen on the internet.

  8. Isolation I'm not sure exactly my question but I think it would be greatly appreciated by a lot of people if Teal made an Ask Teal video on Isolation. Are you in isolation? I am... I isolated myself from society because I didn't know any other option to survive with my parents. I'm 16. I'm trying to leave my abusive mom to stay with my grandmother and she is threatening to go to court over it. What do you do when you feel so isolated in a world...I have no friends...I just want to feel safe at home. It utterly disgusts me how many kids are being physically and emotionally abused. What do you do when you're aware of it but still in the situation... I feel shame for not have figured out what to do yet. I feel shame for being aware of these things yet not taking action. I just don't know which direction to go. I want what will make me happy in the long run. I really want money though. Can I have money and connection? I don't think I believe I can. How do you manifest friends? Or people...the right people. Or do I go in the direction of the isolation feeling..I don't know if I am capable of making space for those emotions. Are you isolated? Alone in your room all the time on your phone watching YouTube videos. Wakeup, eat, distract yourself, eat, distract yourself, sleep.
  9. Home Hey guys, so right now I’m living at home. Until next year when I can move. But right now I’m living at home and it’s painful and isolating. I grew up with a mother who couldn’t own her shame or take responsibility for her impact on other people. I felt like an object to her- a scapegoat to blame things on. If you’ve watched teal’s victim control drama, the you’ll know what I’m talking about when I say that she makes it so the only way I can be around her is if I agree to her estimation of me as this as person responsible for her pain, etc. she lives in denial that she’s done any of this manipulation and instead asserts that she “really cares for me”. My only option in this—since if I try to make her aware of this she denies it— is to just focus on leaving home and the kinds of people and things that I do want instead of this. The other day she starting talking about how she is worried about how I don’t want to spend any time with her and how she’s worried about me. The tone of her “concern” was that there was something wrong with me for not wanting to be with her/at home. I’ve given up on trying to get her to see that she doesn’t accept me at all or truly care about me. She just wants to seem like it because she wants think of herself as a good person. She always manages to insult me when she’s expressing how she’s concerned about me. Saying I need to get help because otherwise I’ll turn into an “antisocial hermit” who is depressed. In the beginnings of these conversations I start to think that maybe she doesn’t Iove but then she insults me or avoids talking about own responsibility for this. I just wanted to express all of this because it’s making me feel really isolated and a little abused to be honest. When I leave, I will be made the bad person. She will never see that me not wanting to be connected to her is because I have no other option. It’s an act of self preservation. I feel so alone. I feel hopeless. It’s hard for me to accept that someone could not love me and it really not be my fault. That I could have truly just been powerless to my mother growing up. It makes me feel cheated of having a loving home. And it makes me feel abused that the blame is put on me, as if this is something I wanted or had a hand in creating. I didn’t consciously choose to be born into an unloving home. I hate being guilted and shamed for wanting to leave it. Thanks for listening.
  10. This episode on belonging and how to feel like you belong explores our feeling of being isolated, lonely and alone. Teal Swan discusses how sometimes we feel that we only belong in places where we didn't wish we belonged. In other words, we either don’t feel we belong or we feel that we only belong where we don’t want to belong. Teal swan then walks us through healing this aspect within ourselves so that we can find true belonging. Teal Swan is an International Spiritual Leader.

  11. Isolation trauma and how to connect with others again? I know this is a pretty common trauma, and Teal has done quite a few videos about connecting with others... but do you guys think that having a more in depth video about isolation specifically (be that withdrawal as a coping mechanism, or the idea of childhood abandonment in general) would be helpful? Isolation is something I've also been struggling with. I'm not at all against visualizations or using tools to feel open or trusting with others again which I've seen mentioned in her teachings, but for those of you who also struggle with this know that we can get into a place where we are almost like a high security prison on lockdown. Visualizations can feel surface and pretentious to the mind who has lived this way so long. I've also noticed that a common message is getting down the root of why we don't fully trust others, and using the completion process. Of course this is absolutely important, but the ironic thing is that the completion process is something self-focused (focused on integrating trauma), when the cure for isolation is true intimacy and connection. Also, once we know that root, does anyone else find that it's difficult to find ways to meet that need for connection in your day to day life? After all, if you're seeking to develop better connection with others, it involves other people, their time and schedules. In a way, you're also kind of asking for their energy and giving them energy too, since you want them to connect with you, and you want to connect with them. I've asked myself "What would a person who loved themselves do?" and often draw a complete blank because (again, it's too ironic) it's not what my mind wants anymore. It doesn't want to do stuff alone, but hasn't really experienced a ton of deep connection. This aspect of me wants someone to love me... and help them not feel alone, but I have no idea how to go about helping that. Sometimes I receive answers to that question, and I take a certain course of action that is meant to help with intimacy and connection, but despite that, I often feel like an island of my own even within the presence of people I love and care about. Anyway... this isn't just about me hahaha... I'm wondering if you guys have experienced something similar, and if this topic of discussion would be helpful? I don't know... the way I'm wording this, it sounds like all the questions that have been answered before. But it's something else... that sort of isolation. It's really hard to explain. It's beyond loneliness. This probably sounds really confusing haha... sorry. (One of the effects of isolation is misunderstanding because your mental and emotional reality feels so far from other's. Thus, you end up wording things or talking in ways that cause further confusion and separation.) I'm trying to explain this feeling of horrific isolation in words, and basically just wondering how we can help ourselves and others through it. I like to write articles and blog posts too, and I'm posting one soon on hyper-responsibility and it's relationship with isolation. But... when I thought about how to help that relationship dynamic, I could only find a few things to write for solutions. It's like I understand what's happening, but my ideas for solutions are limited. Thoughts?
  12. Connection Hello Everyone! I've created this account a while ago but I've just newly realized how starved I was for connection. I have a lot of people in my life that I love very much. But none of them are aware and can create a connection with me that I can feel. A connection with someone who is aware where I can feel their pain and they can feel mine. I have to warn you though, I use to be very scared of connection and of love. Now, I have integrated most of that but there is still residue. I'm willing to go all in. Comment here or message me if you want a real connection, someone to listen to your struggles, be with your pain and not try to fix you. Because you are incredible just the way you are. Xxx

The ego only exists in a state of comparison. It cannot exist without comparison. What happens when we have this sense of identity that exists only because of comparison and so many of the things that we compare ourselves to around us, we see as “not us” or “different to us”? Belonging goes right out the window. And in this case, the ego has nothing to identify with other than not belonging in and of itself. Not belonging becomes part of our identity. In this episode, Teal explains how we can use the ego to create an instant sense of belonging. http://www.askteal.com Kuan Yin's Mantra (c) 2002 Lisa Thiel Help us caption & translate this video! http://amara.org/v/VVJT/
  14. Hi there. I was wondering if anybody knew anything about manifesting attention, or getting out of a rut of feeling isolated, unloved, overlooked or forgotten. I am in desperate need this type of security at this point in my life. And I know that this problem stemmed from feelings of abandonment in childhood. I know that this needed attention from others must come from self love from within, but I still struggle. As a Leo woman, this desire to be adored is especially prevalent. Does anyone else struggle with this? Any insight, wisdom or intuition I welcome with gratitude.
  15. Hi everybody, I recently submitted this question to "Ask Teal", but I would lie to hear your view on it as well: How do I stop feeling so lonely, cut off and different from everybody else? How do I stop judging everybody I meet as someone who "is not like me", "not my type", "not spiritual/'overly' spiritual", "won't understand me" and "someone I'm not compatible with"? How can I start approaching the people I meet with genuine curiosity, love and a sense of "he/she is like me", instead of feeling afraid of people, putting up walls and being scared of opening myself up? Wherever I go, whether it's the supermarket, my job or any kind of social gatherings, I feel like I will never find someone whom I can have a deep, real, loving friendship with. I feel like I will never find my "tribe". I know this sounds awful, but it's like I have this belief whenever I'm around people that they are all "materialistic, unawakened, shallow, unaware, narrow-minded, meat-eating people who are not spiritually developed, not self-aware and who only care about getting drunk and getting laid on a Friday evening, or, if they are a bit deeper, starting a family, getting a house and making a career for themselves as a lawyer and working in the same office at the same job until the day they die (without ever having lived at all). Again, I know this sounds awful and super judgmental but I want to tell the truth about how I feel, I'm sure many of you can relate. Any advice is highly appreciated. Thanks a lot <3 Lisette
