  1. (5 Free Online Sessions) Abuse Recovery: http://mas-sajady.com/abuse-freedom Teal Swan Book Offer: https://tealswan.com/loneliness *** RECOVERING FROM LONELINESS & ABUSE | As we prepare to launch our Abuse Series at the top of 2019, the timing couldn’t have been better for me to have sat down with renowned speaker and author, Teal Swan, to discuss her personal upbringing with abuse and how we all experience it based upon her perspective on loneliness. If we look at society, we see trauma everywhere—from improper weaning of babies to the ravages of war. Without a doubt, it has become a societal epidemic yet we’ve somehow succumbed to the enormity of its ubiquity that it’s almost deemed “normal.” It has unfortunately widened the chasm of perceived separation into deep loneliness that affects millions in spite of billions in population on Planet Earth. Teal clarifies that these are all essentially fragments of perception and identities we’ve created in order to survive. And the task, at hand, is to have all of society engage in commitment to understand each other and ultimately ourselves. She further specifies there is a need for genuine connection because we are a group species, and it is in our basic biology to be with and be in mutual understanding of one another. Listen in to this episode to hear Teal’s take on loneliness and how you can learn more from her latest book, The Anatomy of Loneliness.
  2. As a girl, at about 6 years of age, I suffered sexual abuse for several years. I spent my whole life doing therapy, with a lot of psychologists, I'm still doing therapy. When I started doing therapy, it was a learning problem, nothing related to sexual abuse. But psychologists have never told me what they knew about my traumas (it's part of psychology), and it never emerged that my learning problems (and many others) were the cause of my abuse, I counted it as something else in my story. Just two years ago I made akashicos records, and that's when my guides told me that the cause of my problems was my abuse, that's how I knew it. Now, my doubt is this, since no psychologist was very helpful, I don't know how to heal the consequences that brought me that abuse, repressed emotions, such as hatred (that's what I realized) shyness, etc. I don't know how to heal those emotions. And I also find it strange that when I talk about this trauma, I feel nothing, I don't distress, I don't cry, unlike other people who have also been sexually abused, I don't understand why that does not happen to me.

  4. Need This to Be a Topic! Help Please! So, I was talking to my cousin this past week, and we got into a discussion about the cycle of abuse in our family. At some point in the conversation, I said something along the lines of, "what the hell did I do in a past life to deserve all of this." And her response was, "Right? I had to have been Hitler or someone." I mean sometimes you just really have to laugh through the pain. Well anyways. Basically, I grew up in a situationship with a father who was emotionally and physically abusive. I feel like in the psychological community he would be a narcissist with bipolar disorder. I know that he also grew up around abuse, and so did his family. I know that. Ok. I even believe somewhere in childhood, I was abused really early on because I distincly remember children of all ages wanted to sexually do things with me. It wasn't until college when I was actually raped that I started to even snap out of the emotional numbness of it all. I was raped by someone who I trusted and wanted to establish a "clean" slate with. But I also knew that he came from a family of abuse and rejection, so. Fast forward, All of this spiritual work and meditation has led me to a place where I now feel like there is little else that I have to research and find out. That place where you get the realization that looking for the answers outside of you doesnt feed that hunger for knowledge anymore. So, I feel pretty strongly that I know what the next steps are. I know what I have to do now to really let go of baggage and step into who I am. But now I am in between the biggest rock and hard place! Everything sounds like rape now in some form. I have to be allowing and not force anything. I have to just accept everything and peace will come. Rape. Or I do force myself to make these changes and be strong, so now I have to rape the body and control it. So it comes down to either let the universe have it's way with me and hope everything comes to pass and works out for the best. Or i fight with my body and ancestral stuff and force the higher selfs agenda, which makes the body submissive to the all? But after total submission and allowing, the body will realize that this was the best way after all? You see where Im going with this? I know there has to be a third way to look at this. Maybe some insight. I am really stuck in all realms of existence. Like I have boxed myself into the last corner and the only way to go is up spiritually. Thanks in advance! Dee
  5. Help Share my Rape story He wouldn’t take no for an answer I was raped. I was 21. So many people told me not to go to the police and to handle this another way. I didn’t want the attention that comes from a case like this. But something kept telling me to do more. That what happened to me was bigger than me. I was just getting angry and more and more bitter by not doing anything about what happened. I tried everything I could to stop thinking about it. I cut off everyone that knew him. I didn’t talk to anyone about it. In July of 2016, after 4 ½ years of struggling with what to do, I contacted the Police Department in the City that this took place. 7 months after the last time I saw him, I contacted my rapist via Facebook messages about the incidents that took place. He said a lot in these messages- this would later become my first substantial piece of evidence. My case had enough evidence to be assigned to an Advocate and a Detective. These two became two of the most important people in my life. I was interviewed for almost 9 hours about that year. The Detective told me that in order to get this case prosecuted, I would have to slowly work towards contacting my perpetrator. I would have to confront him again about the incident. I did. I was scared and it made me feel like I was losing myself a lot of the time- but I wanted to take this case as far as I possibly could. I wanted to be heard, and in case there were other victims I wanted to speak out. The Detective and I planned carefully. I sent the Detective every single correspondence as soon as it was over for the day. I started off by saying that I wanted to work out the past and put it behind me. I messaged him for 2 months before I made the pretext calls. The plan worked. He admitted to everything last thing- every single detail. I walked him through that day and what happened. He admitted to everything. I said no to his advances from the start. I was traveling with him and told him I wanted to just be friends. I said no to everything, and that particular day; 1 month into our travels. I was exhausted and depressed. I wanted to be alone, so I shut myself in this room. He came in and got on the bed. He said he wanted to “heal” me. I didn’t believe in that new age bullshit. He told me that sex heals. He asked me if I would have sex with him. I said “no”. I didn’t want him to touch me. I wanted to be alone. Anyone in their right mind would see that I was clearly closed off and not wanting to be around anyone- let alone have sex with a person I didn’t know very well. He wouldn’t take “no” for an answer. He kept asking. Over and over again. I was afraid. My anxiety and fear wouldn’t let me move. I was frozen. I was becoming more and more confused every time he asked, or every time he made an advance that I clearly didn’t want. He turned me to face him. He uncrossed my arms from my chest. He asked me again and again. I said no each time. He removed my clothes, and his and he asked again. I said no. But he kept asking. Finally, after what seemed like hours of this… I was crying, I was afraid of what would happen if I didn't and I said “okay.” I didn’t want to consent. I said “no” so many times. I gave up fighting with him to stop. He wasn’t going to stop. He knew what he wanted and he was going to get it whether I liked it or not. I was crying the entire time. I was lifeless. He didn't stop. He didn’t care. He finished. I asked him why he did it. Why he kept asking, why he didn’t stop when he knew I was crying, why did he have sex with me despite me saying "no" over and over again. He admitted to all of this between 2 recordings. We were absolutely certain at this point that we had a winning case against him. Everyone agreed that it sounded like a complete confession. The detective wrote up the warrants that weekend and was ready to book the flight as soon as I figured out exactly where he would be and once the Grand Jury made a decision. The DA would have an answer that week. My case wouldn’t be prosecuted because I said “okay” in the end- because 'no' was not the answer he was looking for... because "No" was not the right answer? One word. One quiet tear-filled, whispered word. I was overwhelmed... I AM overwhelmed. All of us are so frustrated by this verdict. The laws surrounding consent still work to protect the suspect. So, despite such clear evidence- by law nothing could be done. I slept in the ER the night that I was told the case wasn't going to a Grand Jury. So now, I continue to fight. I told the Detective I wasn't giving up. The investigation might be over, but I still have every piece of evidence. I want to work to get a Law passed stating that Coercion is a form of rape in the State that this took place. Coerced sex should be seen as Rape everywhere as far as I am concerned. Eventually, I would like for my case to be looked at again, if the Law does change and for him to be prosecuted and charged. I said I wanted to take this case as far as it will go, and I meant it. I never thought of myself as an activist. I never liked to over think things. But this is something that I have to do now. I want to be an advocate for all survivors of sexual assault. ‘No’ means ‘No’- the first time. This is the first of many posts to come. I refuse to stay quiet any longer. I hope this reaches someone who needs it, Thegohst Make noise. More to come. email me: emailthegohst@gmail.com

  7. Hello Teal, or to anyone who can help. For years I have struggled with my healing process in regards to my past. I was circumcised as a child against my will for no medical reason and it was a severely traumatizing event. I've had intruding thoughts and PTSD like symptoms for nearly a decade now about genital cutting and I feel like I'm a slave to these intrusive thoughts and emotions. I don't know how to heal and integrate this experience and to move on into the future as a complete and whole person. I have profound emotions of shame, disgust, fear, betrayal and feel completely disrespected, defiled, violated and disgusting. I don't know how to help myself, when I try and do shadow work I feel like an anxiety attack will happen. I've also had anxiety related seizures in the past as well and it's one of the most painful experiences I've ever had in my life and don't want to trigger one by reliving or reexperiencing the sexual abuse I went through. Do you have any recommendations on how to heal from something so profound, and also having to deal with the triggers of seeing the scars everyday in the most intimate part of my body? I feel stuck and hopeless in this regard. To anyone that reads this post, please be aware of the psychological and emotional trauma non consensual circumcision causes. For your children's sake, whether they are boys or girls or intersex children, leave their genitals alone, please don't circumcise! Even if they are "too young to remember". And to anyone else that may have a similar experience to mine, if you are comfortable sharing and opening up, I'd love to communicate with you about your coping and healing methods and to hear what has helped you. Thank you.
  8. When I was a little girl, I remember going to a farm and seeing a huge white goat with wild twisted horns behind a fence covered with crosshatched wire. He kept banging against the fence and bleating - he wanted so badly to be free. He seemed somewhat intimidating but you could tell this was a beautiful animal who was being treated badly. I saw him, I must have been around four, and I empathised with him so heavily. Like he and I shared the same space. We had a somewhat mystical connection in that moment. However, from that day, I developed a huge phobia of goats. Even the thought of goats sent me into a flood of paranoia, shame, and fear. And then I made the connection. My father had sexually abused me at the age of three. I realised the truth of how I felt made me share the vibrational space with that goat - I was touched against my will and the strength of my spirit and my desire nature was fighting against it. I wanted so much to be free, to be true to myself, and rape is almost the opposite of that. As I was three at the time of my assault, my mind could not even fathom what was happening. My body sexually responsed to the touch - a part of the sexual response system which is ongoing and natural. Because I was at an age before I could independently develop my boundaries, and i assumed my father loved me, I took it to mean I enjoyed what was happening. But this meant there was something wrong with me. Then I realised I had disregarded my own desire. I did not desire my father sexually. I desired his presence. And the only way he could be present was through sex. But this did not feel like presence. It felt like a prison. I blamed myself for the presence of my desire. And then I took it to mean that my desires were evil. Then I took a step back - it's very natural to desire a parents presence! I had done nothing wrong. Some of the ways I acted out, through bossiness or aloofness or people pleasing may have seemed intimidating or manipulative, but the truth of the matter is, I was just a beautiful girl who had been treated badly. This was a truly beautiful healing process for me. I was inspired by Teal's shadow totem animal post. Desire is something I had made an enemy of, and that's the biggest self divorce there is.
