  1. This Ask Teal Episode on Embarrassment outlines what being embarrassed is about on a deep level. Teal Swan explains the difference between embarrassment and shame. When you are embarrassed you are simply trying to hide something from others about yourself. When you are in shame, you are also rejecting this thing you are trying to hide from others within yourself. This video on embarrassment will help you understand and transform your embarrassment.

  3. 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. Teal Swan has a huge and dedicated fan base; she rose to fame through her YouTube Ask Teal series which now has over 400,000 subscribers and 50 million views. She also has over 250,000 followers on Facebook and over 56,000 on Instagram.Teal Swan was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico with a range of extrasensory abilities, including clairvoyance, clairsentience, and clairaudience. She is a survivor of severe childhood abuse. Today she uses her extrasensory gifts as well as her own harrowing life experience to inspire millions of people towards authenticity, freedom and joy.

    Why am I so mean? You know usually it’s easy for me to figure my emotional stuff out but lately it’s not that way. I was so happy and ever since I got into this relationship it’s like so complicated. It’s not necessarily that it’s a bad relationship for me. I think it’s just shadows and stuff popping up for me that he reflects. Anyways question. Why am I always so mean? I hate that I’m mean. I don’t understand why I am mean to my partner or to anyone really. Every time he walks into the room when he gets home from work I’m immediately filled with defense and like I’m ready to yell. I feel like this every time he gets home. When he tries to show me love or compliments me I get angry and sometimes feel rage bubbling up inside me. When he wants to talk I get angry. Sometimes everything he does or says gets me in defense and yelling mode. It got to the point that I didn’t want to be touched and would feel rage from being touched. That has gotten somewhat better though. But sometimes I feel I can’t trust the person touching me and I’m scared of being taken advantage of sexually. Sometimes when he touches me in certain places I feel like my skin is burning and I have these visuals of hitting him. I try to hide it from him because I want this to go away and it doesn’t. I just want to put him down for everything he does that’s remotely positive. And I hate this yet can’t stop! I used to LOVE being shown love. Now it seems it makes me uncomfortable. This kind of seems like it happens in every relationship of mine. I don’t like hugs at all and I judge everyone constantly. It’s just so strange because I used to be like the total opposite of all of this and now it’s like everything I am is the exact opposite of what I want in my life. I feel so stiff, angry, judgemental, and distant from everyone. I wish I could go back to how things were. Why can’t I seem to make that happen? Why am I stuck in this nightmare? I miss how I used to feel about myself(self love) and about him. And others.

  7. The psychology of idolization and why fans turn to haters resides in an individuals psychology and the disowned aspects of the person themselves. The idolization of idols, rock stars, pop stars, spiritual figures or figures of authority represent this disowned aspects that they have suppressed within themselves therefore when other people own or represent these aspects they quickly idolize or admire them. If they get close and this vision of them falls from the pedestal they’ve put them on, Teal Swan explains that it can quickly turn to hate.

    I am new on the forum but I felt for sharing my biggest fear. I am quite flat and small breasts have always been an issue. My previous relationships were quite abusive. I work a lot on that now doing the shadow work and completion process. I feel that shame coming back. I have hidden inside me away from people because of it. I felt terrible pain for the bullying that I attracted. I have to go to the specialist stores to buy a bra and my social life stopped since I realized that I was a bit 'different'. I gave up. I felt jealous to all the girls around me in the school for being 'normal' and that only I was going through this shitty situation. I feel that I have not lived my life fully because of all the shame. I feel anxious in social situations. I've started going out again with people that I really like but I feel that shame coming back again. I don't know how I accustomed to the womanhood as I did not felt as a woman. I feel that having less on your chest is not attractive and finding a partner becomes really hard. Any ideas on why I have created myself this way and what would be the reason for it. I can't figure it out. Thank you.

  10. Do we have to share our shadows with others to heal? Hello all. Really want all the perspectives I can get on this. I’ve been doing healing work for years now and I had been in a great place of light for some time, until some things resurfaced that I couldn’t fully accept about myself. So. I think I’ve gotten to the root of my shadow. The darkest shadow(s) I carry. And I believe it’s the root to my shame, fear, and insecurities. I feel it would set me free to embrace it but it is so bad. I have accepted my actions/thoughts pertaining to this shadow all on my own. And felt incredible and realized this just aids my purpose in healing others. (Which is what I wish to do) although sometimes I fall back and feel awful. I feel this push in myself to get honest and just tell someone. To feel accepted by them. But I don’t feel ready to admit this shadow(s) to people yet. Because I know many people in the world would hate me or be very afraid of me, I’d one of the biggest outcasts according to society. Although when I was on San Pedro with my current partner (who loves and accepts me completely) I told him the brut of my shadows I’ve never told anybody. But I still don’t feel relief. How do we deal with these dark dark shadows? Do we have to share them or can we heal and integrate just by loving them all on our own? Like I said I did share pretty much all of it with him, he’s intuitive so we spoke on an energetic level and he was able to feel what I meant without me having to verbally say exactly what it was. I still did say it though, through energy. But no relief now! Is it just that I need to find that love and acceptance inside? Because when I think of telling someone I turn white. I feel my life is over. Perspectives on this predicament? Hope I conveyed it good enough.
  11. One part wants to kill the other (help) I've been trying to access the shame part of me for some time but I haven't been able to find her. At another attempt today though, the polar opposite part of me came up in the form of a green raging "hulk-type" aspect that legit wants to kill the shameful aspect. I felt like it was searching after the child and the moment it would find her he would rip her to pieces for he felt she had completely destroyed his life. Now it makes sense that I can't find the "hulk's" opposite because she of course has to be in hiding. So now I'm at a loss for what to do. How can I get them to come closer? Do any of you have any idea what to do or say to the hulk or how to make the child feel safe to come out? Do I validate the hulk? lol, what to do? Appreciate any ideas!

    Fungal skin issues Hello guys! Is there someone who managed to get rid from Tinea versicolor, or maybe other fungal skin infection permanently? I suffer with it already for 6+ years. During this years every several months i start seeing a lot of white spots on my body, i treat it and they disappear for next several months, and then everything starts again. It is never ending cycle. Before i treated it with shampoo that contained ketoconazole but i don't want to use any chemicals on my body, now i switched to tea tree oil that helps to make them disappear even better. Now i am trying to treat it with combination of green tea and tea tree oil, because i heard that green tea actually is one of the best cures for fungal infections. My diet is vegan and is super clean, since eating this way i feel much better but it didn't help to cure this skin issue. My problem is that even though when i treat tinea versicolor it always dissapears, after several months it always comes back. I hate this. I am so tired of fighting it. When it comes back it is all over my face, chest and back.I literally go to sleep without any white spot and the next day i wake up and see lots of them and it gets worse and worse if i don't treat them. It scares me when i look at myself in the mirror and of course it makes me feel a lot of shame. I think that this fungus is always coming back because it wants to remind me of this aspect of myself that feels ashamed and unwanted and is full of insecurities. I tend to run away from it and want to do everything that prevent's me of feeling that way. I think i should do a completion process to meet the unmet needs of this aspect of me instead of just running away from it as i always do. When i was kid i was always made feel that something is super wrong with me. I felt abandoned by my parents because i am not good enough to deserve being with them, i was bullied at school by my classmates and always disapproved by teachers. I was always told that i am ugly and stupid. I grew up in a person that suffers from perfectionism and lives only for people's approval, desperately trying to prevent myself from experiencing those feelings of my childhood. I am obsessed with controlling everything, and this fungal infection is out of my control and this is freaking me out, i feel like i can not do anything about it and i am left here alone in shame. I feel like so much internal work has to be done here. If you have or had similar issues feel free to share how you feel and your story.

    Fear of Intimacy This thread I am starting is in regards to Teals new video fear of intimacy. I want to compile everyone who specifically suffers from this into its own little community. Hopefully we can work through the steps on the list and maybe even meet each others needs. This is a great opportunity to make new friends and grow self awareness.

    The New Justice System I'm not sure how to accomplish this goal that teal has set for us to revolutionize the justice system but everything she says in her latest video is right on as far as I'm concerned. It is exactly what i have seen and experienced working in today's criminal justice system as a chaplain, counselor and ministry volunteer. How to manifest the reality is another story. Here I am teal what can i do? i feel like I'm already doing much of what you suggest but we can only accommodate a few people at a time in our Intentional/therapeutic community here called Recovery Ministry.
  16. The New Justice System will reform the way we handle criminals and criminal justice. Teal Swan explains that we have multiple personalities within ourselves and that these inner selves are creating the problems in society. In Crime and Criminals these selves are created through shame. When we shame and punish criminals we are reinforcing these protective personalities that were created by shame in the first place and making the world a much more dangerous place. The way we deal with criminals therefore has to change and Teal Swan explains how. Teal Swan is an International Spiritual Leader.

    I wanted to get some advice for healing my sexuality. I was shame for it at a very young age, and through my teenage years shamed, no one taught me what sex was, at school it focused on the body, then there was the internet, after being shamed and curious at a young age, I developed an addiction to porn but also used that as an escape from my emotional abuse from my parents, and when my parents found out, well, lets just say one time my dad threatened to hit me with the laptop, it was a dark past, I was never told what sex was so what I saw on screen I thought was pleasurable, but even that was shamed. I have managed to quit it this year, 2016 being the year of purity,I started at the end of last year looking into masculitnity and feminity and conscious sex, I literally since a couple months ago, have not even desired someone based COMPLETELY on their physical attraction, and then I realised that millions of boys and adultlescents do this, literally millions say 'I want to shag her' then making her worth based on a single physical aspect such as her ass. I have realised how completely fucked up sexuality is to those who are not conscious. Of course now I see people on the mental, emotional and physical planes, yes it is wonderful to compliment a womans body with the knowing that, that is just a single part of the whole spectrum of what makes a woman beautiful, what about her eyes? her love for animals? her shadow side? the way she thinks about the world? I came to the realistation that all people are beautiful, yes I may not be attracted to all of them that is my own subjectivity, but beauty lies in everyone. I have to admit I find this a little bit healing writing how I express my own views on sexuality to everyone here, thank you. But, I'm still on my path, I, wanted to know, is there any other way besides shadow work, to help myself heal my sexuality? I will do shadow work if I am in an intense level of emotion of course, but slow little steps, such as visulaisations or positive focus? anyone got any?

    I have painful anxiety. But I didn't realize how bad it really was until I went to an orientation at work yesterday. When I first got there, I was soo stiff and slouched. I tried soo hard to relax but I couldn't. At that point I realized that I didn't feel safe. The environment was safe, however, emotionally I didn't feel safe. My chest was tight and painful, my throat was closing up and I was shaking really bad. And I'm not exaggerating. At that moment, I realized that I have really deep shame that's rooted in me. I've experienced a lot of traumas in my childhood. Being made fun of throughout middle school and high school. Along with covert abuse from my mother and my little brother that eventually had me believing that I deserved to be treated that way. And til this day I still believe that I should be treated that way, because I am bad person. (This makes me want to cry. ) I can't afford therapy. And I need help. I want to believe that I'm worthy and good enough.. And that I'm not a bad person. But it's soo hard when everyone that I'm surrounded by (family and family friends) treat me otherwise. They kick me when I'm down. They talk bad about me when I'm not around. They try to bring me down when I'm happy. They make jokes that aren't really jokes, but are insults disguised as jokes. I could feel completely grounded one minutes, and then the next minute I'm crying because someone ignores me when I talk or they talk over me. I'm fed up. I feel like it's me against my family. If I'm happy, then they get offended. If I'm depressed, they kick me down even further and condescendingly talk to me as if I'm the pessimist of the house. I want to believe that I'm worthy, I want to believe that I'm good enough. I want to live a great life. I want to believe that there are good relationships out there. and I want to live peacefully. ....But I'm starting to loose hope. If you have any advice, opinions, questions, comments feel free to message me or comment below. I look forward to hearing from you.
