A Very Real Risk

 An empty canvass sits on an easel in front of the window with an expanse of tropical landscape behind it.  The paints are neatly arranged next to it; the paintbrushes dry and waiting.  I want to paint on it.  I can feel the pressure of art yet to be expressed inside me.  Over the last few months, it has felt like these creations paintings-316440_640.jpgwaiting to be born are on backorder.  

aircraft-1555434_640.jpgA close friend of mine has a saying… Starting a business is like making a plane take off of the runway.  Everyone involved has to put everything they have into it and in the beginning it is tense and sometimes rocky and then after a bit it stabilizes.
philia sign.jpgThis retreat center (though it ties in with my mission and current business perfectly) is in reality, a brand new business.  Since the second we decided to go ahead with it, it has taken every last drop of sweat, every breath and every minute for every person involved.  None of us have been able to focus on our respective role within the organization because of everything we have had to get done.  Instead of fulfill my usual role, I have had to sort out details with design and direct contractors and workers and shop for necessities and haul things in pick up trucks.  At this point everyone on the team feels guilty for having ever been upset at the price any of us ever had to pay for a hotel or any other hospitality service (having seen what goes into the back end of a retreat).  It is a crazy amount of work and the minute something goes right, something else goes wrong.  The kind of pressure we are all under has made the team's collective shadows and wounds surface.  On top of that, the intensely shamanic nature of this property itself is a catalyst.    

teal philia river.jpgTo add to it all, there are people around the world who are so vehemently opposed to my career ( actually mostly to me as a person), that they have decided to dedicate themselves to trying to destroy this retreat center.  The minute that we announced Philia, they began planning how to try to shut it down.  This began with them collectively contacting the FBI and the local police.  Now their efforts are aimed at attending so as to sabotage it from the inside.  They have been targeting both attendees and teachers of the retreat.  We had one teacher resign from doing a retreat here because of the amount of Anti-Teal 'Danger' propaganda sent to her when she announced that she was working with me.  The teacher of the current retreat and many of the prospective attendees have confessed that they too felt deeply insecure coming here because of it.  Essentially, the principal strategy of those who oppose me is to “befriend” people associated with me and then turn them against me.

It has been a frustration being told by some that I should just ignore it all (which can’t happen if they are taking tangible steps).  And on the other hand being told by others that they need my help and a direct response to it all.  As sad as it makes me to say, the reality is that conflict and controversy now surrounds me. 


customer-563967_640.jpgNow, I am at a point where I literally have to warn people publicly (like I am doing in this blog) that because of the intense dedication of these individuals that have decided they hate me and then banded together to form an Anti Teal group, that people who demonstrate association or alliance with me should expect that they are going to be targeted for conversion by these people. 

I am now facing several issues because of their strategy.  Primarily the fact that this hate group has done such a good job with their fear propaganda and slander that people’s moms and dads and brothers and sisters and friends are getting scared about me and then trying to turn the people they love away from me.  It’s WAY harder to brush off the concerns of a passionate hater than the concerns of someone in your life that you love and whose opinion and connection you care about.  Second, many people do not want to stick their necks out in support of me and be 'shot at' by this hate group too (condemned by association).  Third, even more people than that, are merely conflict avoidant and simply do not want to be involved in the heat and pressure of controversy. 

I feel more like a revolutionary than a spiritual teacher when I see people polarizing around me so dramatically either FOR or AGAINST me as a person.  And to add insult to injury, the shadow aspect of the spiritual field has reared its head in the form of messages from people saying that the reason they are pulling away from me is because they believe in the law of attraction.  And therefore, if I “attract” so much hate and controversy, it must mean something about me as a person.  When they say things like this, I wonder how people can hold such a double standard.  They say that the level of controversy surrounding me is indicative of some dark shadow within me.  And yet, they revere characters like Jesus, Ghandi, Martin Luther King and Joan of Arc.  History has shown us that controversy is not always indicative of people being evil, but people being change.  Many of the biggest game changers on earth end up dead as a result of circumstances like I find myself in today.  As history has shown over and over again, the person who wants to stand up the loudest for change, takes the highest risk and is often the one who suffers the consequences of taking that risk.                            

hustle-and-bustle-1738072_640.jpgThe pressure I am under now is the very reason that people choose to stay small.  I am acutely aware that it is much safer socially to do so.  That is sad to me.  This is what people are trying to avoid by holding themselves back.  The reality is that launching anything in the hopes of success, just like you do when you push the throttle on a plane to launch it into the air, is a risk.  It is a risk that you’ll never be ready for.  And so, rather than provide any solution today, I would like to end this blog by inviting you to ask yourself the question… What am I afraid of that is currently making me hold myself back?  By taking a risk to ‘really go for it’, whatever that may be, what is it that I risk?

Hello Teal

I have to say, I've never heard any spiritual teacher speak so intelligently, coherently and with such wisdom as you.  Thank you so much for being the brave, courageous pioneering soul that you are.  We are blessed that you are a living light on our planet at this time.

Love and light sweet Teal, stay strong xxx

I love you Teal. You are the reason I am where I am today. I feel for your struggle and appreciate your autheticity as you move through it. I stand by you in these troubling times and see the resistance as a reflection of the collective fear. Thank you for shining anyways. I will always support you, and am in touch with my own truth enough to know that no one could sway me from that.

Someone earlier said you need help. I agree. Get help to relieve yourself of all duties and then go befriend one of the most prominent haters within this hate group. Take a chapter out of their book, learn how they formed the strategy and what their plan is and use it against them - actually let that ex-hater do it for you. Your single job should be to convert that 1 single person and then let the magic unfold. I suggest it is a man (make SURE he is straight, your job will be easier) don't go after a woman, you are too scary to them. And then work him ;) Sorry Ale.......It's not like she hasn't thought about that yet! Infiltrate!

PS: I haven't seen any haters online in a while and I follow everything you do.  

Good luck, we love you and EVERYONE else envies you!


Wait are you seriously suggesting she commit adultery as a way of dealing with the haters?

Negativity is the vast engine room of creativity, the electron does the legwork in bonding, networking and attraction. You have so deeply stirred the insides of a large percentage of the populace, that the polarities are forcing those accomplished in denial to increase the strength of their protection mechanisms.  Many timelines have opened up for you on this journey, which as you know means a tighter focus on positive outcomes is a MUST. The laws of attraction increase in sensitivity when the timelines are expanded. Keep that beautiful mind focused on the greater good as hard as that is, remember, the way isn't through the noise, it's beyond it.. go through your own material to reinforce the emission of beauty beholding, the good place from which all those hours of considerate inner reflection and research came from in aid of communicating the profound meaning of reality to others. You are human, its just you are one of the few who 'knows' not 'believes' that this is not all that you are, the weavers tend to play rough when you know the territory. Love and positivity to the expansion of you. Some will go to lengths to tryn sabotage a cause which is under attack already, regardless of moral stance, but to this I'd say, bull**** travels fast...

but the truth has endurance...

Thank you for your honesty and transparency. You're a good egg. Starting a new business is a massive undertaking. You're one who treads where angels fear to tread. I'm with you and fully support you, dear.

Hi Teal,

Sorry to hear that you are having negative experiences.

What was the 'intention' of those that created the retreat?

If the manifested outcome of the entity that is the retreat is currently experiencing dysfunctional, unbalanced and negative outcomes, something that could help change this is Holographic Kinetics.


By surrogating the created entity, (the retreat), into someone with that persons agreement and sending them into hyper-space back to the creation of the intent of that created entity, then externalizing that creation and replacing it with a new creation back in time, when that is done, changes can then be made in the business.

If two independent naturally occurring frequencies, join together in phase, then a resonance occurs as their high and low equal opposite are reached simultaneously, both frequencies vibrate in unison and under these conditions the waveform created by the two frequencies, will exceed that which either could produce independently.


Symbolism and geometry within Universal "Lore" 1a + 1b = duality [ a+b] , and when one agrees to integrate with another, then a pyramid is formed by A & B creating [AB] perfect manifestation into the physical realm, created by a merging of duality.

A new entity being created by the joint agreement and intent of both A and B is now created, the reality of an entity AB .


This entity at the point of the pyramid AB will always have an influence from the invisible, over all things within its created universe, keeping in mind that the intent of its created universe was of the joint intent of the individual intentions of both A and B .


I'm sure there are plenty of people with 'good intentions' that can contribute towards removing any negative intentions or entities that are currently interfering with your aims of the retreat.


I hope these growing pains are healed soon and wish you a healthy, happy and vibrant 2017.

You got this Teal! People who understand and listen to themselves genuinely feel the truth and pull of the things you say. The fact that you are so open with us is profound and I appreciate everything you've shared with us, and you as a person, deeply.

Teal you are like the Donald Trump of the spiritual community. ;-) The haters can't stop you.

Edit: To put it more gently, what he is to contemporary mainstream politicians you are to contemporary mainstream spiritual teachers. 

(And he too was in the hospitality business. Sorry can't help it. :)

I feel the frustration Teal! I actually had the very people I opened my healing center with turn on me and leave the business.  I let it all go that year because I really wanted to work with a powerful team of people and I needed to move out of San Fran to do that.  The Desert of Arizona called me. So now I'm here working for HealthForce, and with a powerful team of people.  And boy do we have haters! (Mike Adams *ahem*)  

But to answer your question, the only thing that's holding me back is not knowing what I'm being called to actually do.  Ive been searching for my calling, my purpose, my hearts desire and what wants to be created through me for the last 5 years.  And granted I know these things are whispered to me, i seem to keep getting mixed signals.  I CAN tell you I'm a master at manifestation! But what to manifest? I'm still looking for the answer.

Quote: "Second, many people do not want to stick their necks out in support of me and be shot at by this hate group too (condemned by association)"

in this case it's not about Teal or what she's doing. It's about them and them not fully believing in what THEY are doing .  Lack of self trust and decision making.

I would cut their necks myself :D

I recently got into an "argument" with anti-Tealers on Youtube recently. It's funny, the more the anti-Tealers attack your fans (ie: me), the more dedicated I become to what you stand for, Teal! They're obviously very triggered by you. I pray that they only remain a nuisance and not a danger. Lots of love to you and the Teal Tribe <3
