Passing Through

The countryside flows by so fast that the eye cannot settle on anything to look at.  The movement of this European train makes the outside look like a river of landscape or like a Van Gough painting perhaps.  After seeing this, I find myself reflecting on the movement in his paintings.  It makes me wonder if he ever really settled into life on earth or if he spent his days merely passing through life.

architecture-buildings-city-1308940.jpgI am on European tour again.  This time I am stopping in Paris, Amsterdam, England, Dublin, Luxembourg and Basel.  The last time I was in Paris was the day after the 2015 Paris terrorist attacks occurred.  I expected to find Paris restored to its original ways but I find the city much changed.  Fear hangs in the air in the city still.  I have never seen more police and military officers there before.  Paris is not alone in this way of being.  Since being here I must admit that Europe in general feels incredibly unstable right now.  It is caught in a state of guarded uncertainty. 

Chateau.jpgThe last two days were spent in the countryside of France with my very close friend and master healer Jacques Connan as well as his family and friends.  I spent a lot of time doing inner journeywork in his healing room late at night.  Yesterday, we visited a medieval castle called Chateau de La Roche–Guyon.  For me, visiting historical sites is like eating a cream filled doughnut… You know better than to do it, but it tastes so good you end up doing it anyway and regretting it later.  As a ‘sensitive’ the density of these ancient thought forms is destructive to the subtle matrix of the energy body.  It is a bit like heavy poison.  I find places like that so utterly fascinating that all of myself is gripped into the experience.  But as the minutes go by, I feel weaker and weaker, more and more horrified by what was considered “normal” back then.  For an extrasensory, these places are still fully alive with the practices that once took place in them.  When it comes to medieval castles this means beheadings and dark religious rites and torture and public defecation and imprisonment in dungeons and complete unconsciousness.  Human life did not hold the same value then that it does now.  Human life was expendable. 

These places are also alive with the people who were the most identified with them.  We had the thought form of a gamekeeper from the 1600s following us through an entire wing of the place.  It was lurking around the stairway stretching from the main building to the tower. 

Coming from a lawsuit happy country, I am both terrified and thrilled at the lack of restriction that exists in many other countries.  To reach the tower, one has to climb a seemingly never-ending vertical staircase that is chiseled through the limestone, like a white cave going straight up.  There is a metal handrail in the center that you literally have to use in order to not fall backwards.  I could not believe it was open to the public.  In America no place would risk the potential law suit of someone inevitably injuring or killing themselves by slipping while going up or down it.  I really wonder how many people have hurt themselves or died there over the years.  Alas, because we were not in America, we made our way up it, huffing and puffing from the exertion.  Vertigo hit me so hard I felt weak in the knees.  It was that same off-kilter feeling I get in so many of my nightmares that involve heights. 

IM0604-hr.jpgExiting the cave-stairs you can see the tower above you with a barred window on its left side, exactly like the one depicted in the old story of Rapunzel.  It is not hard to imagine what life would be like, imprisoned in that room.  When you climb to the top of the tower, miles of French landscape unfold before you.  The architecture below, the spires of the castle, the courtyards and the gentry manors below, have not changed with time.  The sound of the homing pigeons that were kept there still exists in the present day.  The sound itself has become a ghost. It is a pleasant sound to behold. 

I managed to get myself stuck somehow in a hallway where the only way out was to pass by the castle crypt adjacent to the 2 religious halls.  Now it remains open and empty of bodies, but in no way empty of emotion and projection.  It has the energy of a cavern where coveted jewels are kept safe, but jewels that terrify and afflict people with the feeling of mortality and loss.  The impression you get of the rawness of life back then is brutal against the bones.  It makes you feel sore and heartbroken underneath the fascination that compels you forward.

IM0612-hr.jpgOften a soul stream will incarnate over and over in a certain way or at a certain time or place in the universe if the experience available to that perspective causes the kind of continual expansion that the soul stream is looking for.  For example, a being may project forth into third dimensional life as an insect over and over again during the cretaceous period on earth.  Because of the type of expansion available to me at the time, the soul stream that I belong to projected itself forth over and over again as a human in Europe from the 1200s to the 1600s.  This expansion is part of the reason I opted into European genetics this time around again.  In fact, I chose to come into Genetics in this life that are the direct result of people who I actually was in the past.  Let’s hope that means that my current perspective is an improvement upon who I was then.  I was particularly interested in the perspective of Gentry…  Both the freedom and imprisonment inherent in positions of leadership and nobility. 

Anyway, having lived so intently over that period of time, it is now the time period most familiar to me somatically.  So I have this problem any time I visit Europe and find my way back to these old castles and manors.  They immediately feel more real to me than the life I am currently living.  It feels as if I have awoken from a bizarre dream, but the bizarre dream is this life as Teal Swan.  I feel disoriented for the remainder of the day after stepping back into them.  I relate to them all so strongly that the memories that live there are echoes of my own memories. 

chess-316657_640.jpgBecause I am in the middle of a new book, I have been holed up in a room, writing from 6-8 hours every day.  This tour has forced me to put it on hold and come out and begin to interact with the outside world again.  My first on-stage appearance is tomorrow in Amsterdam.  I know that those who want to see my career end will revel in knowing that they have succeeded in negatively impacting me.  But, I feel like being honest even though it will give them pleasure to hear.  To be honest, I feel apprehensive to be on stage again.  Putting yourself ‘out there’ is hard enough as it is, much less when people are booing you off stage.  This year has been the year for that experience.  I have had more people turn against me this year than ever before, and aggressively so.  I expected this opposition to happen because it is the nature of the career I have chosen.  But what I did not expect is that this opposition would come from so close to home.  I did not expect that people who I considered to be 100% trusted friends and even family would turn on me and join the opposition.         

The people who turn against me tend to band together.  They form groups where they all get together and validate each other about how terrible I am as a person.  And now, I feel this terrible feeling that I cannot afford to have a disagreement with anyone or fail to live up to the expectations they have in their mind for how a spiritual teacher ‘should’ be; because of the inevitable course of action they will take. I have been feeling like I cannot afford to fall out with people because they join my hate groups and then become convinced through influence that I am in fact way worse than they thought… I am in fact corrupt and fraudulent and evil. 

blue-1593878_640.jpgThink about it this way, if you and your friend or co-worker have a big disagreement that makes you feel hurt by them in some way, you have nowhere to go to get validation for the way you feel.  But when people have disagreements that make them feel hurt by me, they do have somewhere to go to get validation for how they feel.  They can go to the people who already publicly say that I am a horrible person.  My haters will justify and validate the way anyone feels about me as long as it is not in favor of me.  In fact, they will fuel it.

And I have learned the hard way that I cannot do anything to create repair once they turn against me because they adopt a certain perspective.  They see me through the lens of “evil” and everything I say or do will be filtered through it.  For example, when I write this blog, in which I am authentically expressing the fact that I feel hurt, they will warp it into me manipulating people through self-pity.  I am damned no matter what I do.  Everything must simply be converted into proof that I am what they have decided that I am.       

horse-racing-2714849_640.jpgWhen people are opposing you, especially those who you took far into your heart, the natural inclination is to withdraw, close up and not extend yourself towards the world anymore.  I feel unwanted in the world because of how much louder and dedicated the minority is with their hate than the majority is with their love.  And I do not keep my energy where it is unwanted.  And yet I know that I am like a racehorse.  The minute their hooves touch the track, they are in their element and the rest is merely the bliss of instinct… The peace of doing exactly what they were designed to do.  And I know that the minute I can get face to face with someone who is in a place of questioning or struggle, I will snap into this place where nothing exists except for them and me.  A place where we are concealed in a vortex of my obsessive passion for this work. 

I can see now that anonymity has a sweet texture to it that I never felt compelled to touch before now.  Too much of anything is a poison.  Too much anonymity is a prison of insignificance.  Too much visibility is to be a target on display in a world full of weapons.  And I am sore from the arrow points today.

I am so proud of you Teal. Your courage and your openness, your authenticity is remarkable and reveals the pain we are all suffering as the world turns toward intolerance, hate and oppression. It's not just you, people are being seduced by the sweet taste of self righteousness into intolerance and anyone who seeks to show them the painful truths will be ostracized, alienated and demonized. The strength of their reaction to you is a measure of the power and purity of your message. Embrace the pain and be an example of of overcoming by accepting the negative as part of what is. Your weakness is your strength and your pain is your armor. Wear it well for all of us the faithful and true and the unfaithful and resentful.

Teal we suffer alike in that anytime I stick my head up above the crowd i become a threat to so many groups and suffer the energy body damage. I became a social outcast 15 years ago and I've kept my head down for many years of that but now i am truly compelled to speak up for myself and my ideas. You are an exposed version of my desire and right now you are an inspiration to me. You help me guide myself.  This is a very important role you play in my life, keep that in mind when you get down please. thank you for being so tough and fearless.!!... I am here too. 

My experience in being topic of social agitation triggers defensiveness and disconnects me from my source. What you offer to all of us, who you are speaking to, is the process of deep self honest intention in action. You reinforce continually to a space outside of ego and notice ego intentions, while dealing with it gently and lovingly. 

I am beginning to really understand and experience treating my ego with loving acceptance, which also seems to attract loving consciousness into my presents. You have taught me this...:love-struck-yahoo-emoticon: This same ego appears as those in the world who practice hatred toward you - so loving it too just makes sense. We must need to hold hands tightly through this process, thank you for holding mine.  

We just want to share our naked innocence with each other - and that is the most feared concept in this world.

You Teal, are my example, my model for how to be here now - by our interaction source increases as it flows through the circuit we form. Focus here Teal, for healing and replenishment - You are loved. You are adorable - and you are putting forward concepts our collective needs and wants to hear. You are spokesperson for a large and growing community of souls - and we are channeling our desire through you. You're doing this now and you are protected!

These concepts feel good and millions are attracted to just what you are.    

We just have to keep looking up and only listening to our highest perspective. What we are learning is how to deal with the challenges of this journey.

What honesty and beautifully said Teal. I think those who do not like you are simply not shining their full light themselves yet, that's all. It's hard to see brilliance and not be like that yourself. The dogs are always nipping at the heels of excellence and purity! I think what you do is a wonderful example for all of us. I have been so sad to be in this body until now because YOU give me hope that it can be done most beautifully...the Human Life that is. Thank you Teal, Love Elowen

There is a strong possibility that I have no idea what I am talking about, but here goes....

 We are all going to part this flesh. We  all have infinite volumes to learn.  People react in this way or that when they are hurt or when they are afraid.  Some people spout outright lies, some mix truth with the lies, some are speaking the truth from their perspective.

 I do not presume to know what people are saying. It isn't really my business. I will decipher what I see and feel to be truth with my own abilities. If what is being said to you or about you is false, it hurts, but really, they are only setting themselves up for a hard schooling later. If what is said has truth, perhaps you should analyze their perception in order to further evolve. 

 We will leave this earth. Our essence from this life will echo throughout time. If we are here to evolve, then let us do so. If we are all one, then let us love ourselves, even the critical parts of ourselves. Let us give validation to the feelings of fear and anger so that we might hear their lessons and help them to stop over reacting and gumming up the works.

People that hate you probably don't hate others they otherwise would. You are perhaps their scapegoat. This may all be necessary to shift the path of the world though you may not get to see it in this life. What ultimately counts, though, for the spirit, is the legacy left not whether one was loved or hated. Much love. Jaime

Hi Teal,

Your descriptions of the energetics of the castles are...stunning. I wish I felt that level of connection to...anything.

It sucks to be turned against by the people you loved so much. I...experienced that once to a much lesser degree, during a break-up. I can really only imagine the amount of pain you're in. I hope you have people to comfort you, just as I hope for myself now.

It seems best to take a rest from the limelight. I love the vulnerability you shared.

I'm not feeling so great today either, but I hope I managed to convey some level of comfort.

I love you Teal. You've always been a companion.

~Angelica
