The Orgy Game (Personality Test)
The Orgy Game is a fun and light personality game invented by Teal Swan. Get your friends and/or family together for some fun. Here's how you play the game: If 8 characters (real or fictional) came together for an orgy, and the combination of everyone at that orgy created... you. Which 8 characters would have been there? And where would it have taken place? Have your friends/family put together this list for you and share what they came up with in the comments below this video.

How Human Intelligence Is Destroying Human Nature (The Anti-Human)
Are You Anti Human? People are #intelligent enough to have self-concept amongst other things, but are not yet intelligent enough to ensure that their intelligence doesn’t cause problems for themselves and for other species on the planet.  They have used that intelligence for thousands of years to go against their own #nature.  People have gone into resistance relative to what is human about themselves and others.  They have become #anti-human with themselves and with each other.

The Truth About Ghosting - What to Do If You Get Ghosted
#Ghosting isn’t a new thing; however, it is getting progressively more common in large part because of social media. The more that connection is taking place online or via text and the less mutual social connections two people share, the easier it is and the less consequences there are for pulling a #disappearing act. Because of this, it is practically an epidemic in the modern dating world. And unfortunately, the more it happens (either to us or our friends and family) the more normalized it becomes within society.

Cancel Culture (What It Is and How it Works)
What is cancel culture and how does it work? #Cancel culture is a shared #social attitude and custom of trying to get rid of the source of something you dislike (the person saying or doing something) rather than trying to resolve or enter into conflict with the words or actions themselves. A good example of this is: Let’s imagine that a famous actress said she does not believe in vaccines. Instead of entering into a constructive debate about vaccines, people simply decide because of her opinion that they dislike, to organize to make it so that she, herself is eradicated from the public eye. They attack her character.

How to Get Enlightened - See Yourself as an Ecosystem
You see yourself as an “I” or a “me”. The problem is, this perception of yourself does not accommodate for the full truth of you. In fact, it can obscure the truth of you. If you see yourself in this way, you can only see the forest and not the trees. In fact, the single biggest step you can take towards #self-awareness and #awakening is: To begin to see yourself as an #ecosystem that is being called by one name.

How Cynicism Helps You and Hurts You
If you are #cynical, at some point in your life, you experienced one or several serious let downs. Catastrophic sudden shocks or #disappointments relative to the positive elements of your life. For example, a situation or many that caused a catastrophic blow to your belief in others, hopes, dreams, goals, trust, faith, desires, or expectations.

The Truth and The Myth of Unconditional Love
When we say we want #unconditional #love, what we really mean is that we want an unconditional relationship. We want a #relationship with no consequences. We want a relationship where no matter what we do or don’t do, the other person will continue to value us and appreciate us to the degree that they will feel good towards us and never ever get into conflict suffering with us or want to leave us. Sit with this for a minute.

How To Cure Back Pain
#Back pain is an all-consuming experience. You will not realize how much you depend on your back on a daily basis until it is “#injured”. And when it is, you will feel crippled. It is also an emotionally intimidating experience, especially for people who use movement to turn down or turn off their negative emotions.

Why We Do Nice Things For People - The Truth Behind Acts of Kindness
What is the truth behind acts of #kindness? Why do we do nice things for people? There is no such thing as #altruism in the universe.  Before you panic about this and decide the universe is evil, consider that in a universe where at the most fundamental level all is one, there cannot be altruism.  Altruism is a concept that can only exist in a reality of self vs. other and thus in an atmosphere of separation.  This means that acting selflessly is not actually possible.  And self-sacrifice is in fact a #self-centered act.

The Real Reason Why People Don't Change
Why people don't #change? The answer is because there is #resistance to the change. In other words, not all energies involved are a ‘yes’ to the change, some are a ‘no’ to the change. This is very hard to recognize when you are not conscious of the resistance. For example, let’s imagine that what you really, really want is to have a loving partner. You may not be conscious of parts of yourself that think having a loving partner would mean losing your sense of autonomy. And so you may consciously be doing everything to get a partner while in the background, the other parts of you are #sabotaging every effort you make relative to finding a partner and are keeping you single on purpose.

Why We Need Kindness To End Racism and Police Brutality
I am writing this as a pandemic crisis, #anti-racism/#police brutality protests and rioting, as well as a recession, are what currently defines human society. The shadow of human society today can be summed up in one word: Hostile. And we are suffering from it greatly. And it just so happens that the antidote is: #Kindness.

Is it Their Truth or Your Truth? The Concept of Truth Ownership
It is one thing to grasp a concept and another to say that a concept is your #truth. For example, I may do a video in which I present the truth that ‘there is no such thing as self-sabotage’. People will listen to the #concept and grasp the idea in and of itself. But do they really 'get it' to the degree that it becomes their truth?

Why Approval is Not Love - Relationship Problem
Today, we’re going to talk about perhaps the biggest misconception about love and that is that love is approval. This concept sounds simple, but is a whole book in and of itself. But today, Teal Swan is going to give you an overview.

The Anger Hack - What To Do When You’re Upset
Anger is about unworkability. If you feel anger, it means that you perceive something to be unworkable. When something is unworkable, it implies that you are powerless to it staying the way it is. And if there is anger present, you really need that particular something to change or else it is a “lifetime sentence of pain”.

The Surprising Truth: Generalization, Stereotypes and Uniqueness
A stereotype is a generalization about the members of a group. It is often a widely held impression or belief relative to a type of thing. In today’s world, generalizing and stereotyping is generally considered to be a bad, ignorant and even shameful thing to do. It is not politically correct. For more information about this, you should watch my video titled: Political Correctness. But today, I’m going to explain why the baby of generalizing shouldn’t be thrown out with the bathwater of generalizing.

Healing the Millennial Wound - Helping Generation Y
The millennial generation or the so-called generation why is a game-changer generation. However, to get to the place where the game is changed, the existing rules of the game had to have proved to be detrimental. And the trauma of experiencing those detrimental aspects of the game have led the millennial generation to a cross roads.

Whats wrong with Millennials? Generation Y Explained
What is wrong with Millennials or the so-called generation WHY? I want to explain the millennial generation. I must first warn you that to talk about a group consciousness, I must generalize. We are going to begin at a high level. If you were to look through the lens of objective universal consciousness, you would see that the millennial generation is a “game changer” generation. It exists to collapse one society and re-build another one. It exists to bring humanity into free will. This is part of why they have come to adulthood in the information age, where there are so many choices.

What Is Your Motivation For Decisions?
What Is Your Motivation For Decisions? I want you to think of the face of a compass. Imagine that South represents the unwanted. And due North represents what you really want. When you have a clear idea of what South is, you can use that awareness to then define what direction true North is and start taking actions in that direction instead. But many people don’t do this. They see South and don’t want to go South and so they go East or West simply to avoid going South. Or they keep going South, hoping that it will magically turn into North. Or they keep pointing South, screaming that the South should change into the North because it is so wrong for being the South. Essentially, they live their life fighting South or avoiding it. Some people spend their lives fighting the unwanted or avoiding it. Neither is actually going in the direction of what they DO want.

THE Success Factor | Never Half Ass Anything!
To half-ass something is to do it with little effort or care. People who are excellent, never half-ass anything they do, no matter what it is and no matter if it is something they feel minimal motivation to do. Either they give it their best or they don’t do it at all. And the sense of pride they feel as a result, is a form of self-esteem that no one can give to them and no one can take away from them.

Take Your Power Back
Take your power back! What does this mean? There are situations in life where you feel disempowered and at the mercy of others. In times like this, it's infuriating to hear other people say: 'You've given away too much of your power.' This doesn't make automatic sense to most people. After all, you didn't consciously give something away. That's why you have to realize first that you have power and once you've realized that, you can get your sense of power back.

What Is Your Relationship To Authority? (The Authority Pattern)
What is your relationship to Authority?  When we perceive someone or something has an element of power or control over us, such as government, police, parental figures or experts we call this Authority.  This relationship is dictated by the relationship we had with our primary caregivers, but often the awareness of our authority patterns are stuffed deep in the subconscious.

The Placation Pattern - In Your Relationships
Placation is an integral aspect of human social psychology. It has been used throughout human history to maintain order and balance. But many have turned this social tool into a way of relating, losing themselves in the process. They are now trapped in relationships where placation comes before honesty and authenticity. Teal Swan helps bring awareness to this relationship pattern so you can live a more authentic life.

The 'Modified Puzzle Piece Pattern' in Relationships
We enter relationships with an idea of what it will be like, thinking that we know the person we are with. This excitement often overshadows incompatibilities that are present in the relationship. Our desperation to belong, causes us to modify ourselves. We attempt to modify ourselves in order to ‘fit’ together or we try to get the other person to ‘fit’ to us. Teal explains this relationship tendency in-depth so that you can recognize it when you or someone else is stuck in it.

How to Handle Rejection
As Social Creatures and Social Beings, Rejection is one of the most difficult facets of life that humans can experience. If we are rejected within our social system or relationships it usually indicates unwanted behavior. Often we turn the idea that our own behavior is what needs to change and this can lead to the damaging rejection of ourselves if we feel powerless to change. Perhaps you don't need to change your behavior but your environment?

Are You Into Spirituality for Comfort or Awareness?
In General the Spiritual Field can be divided into two camps.  One that uses spirituality to Feel Better and one that uses Spirituality to gain more awareness.  Often we project onto others why we are into Spirituality and this creates conflict and misunderstanding.  If you are watching this video to feel better, I suggest you click away.

Do You Want Success? Don't Value Your Time
Teal breaks down a component of her success for you here. This barrier to success actually lies at the heart of a grand design of our societal disfunction. Somewhere along the line we started valuing our time instead of valuing our results.

Wanna Get Someone To See The Truth? (First Dissolve Their Resistance To Seeing The Truth)
Whens someone wont see the truth, it can be frustrating/infuriating. We all say we want the truth, but if seeing the truth means accepting a painful reality, you can bet that you will meet resistance. This is why we need to work with the resistance. Teal Swan explains that by working directly with resistance you can get to the vulnerable place that truth resides.

Novocaine Spirituality
"Novocaine Spirituality" is a phrase coined by Teal Swan that describes practices within spirituality that provide temporary relief rather than long term solutions and are therefore more akin to a coping mechanism or painkiller like “novocaine”.  The tricky thing about Novocaine Spirituality is that many of the practices provide relief in the short term and on their own can indeed cause awakening, they just need to be used in the right ways at the right times to ensure that they aren't being used as an escape mechanism.

How To Open and Activate Your Soul Star Chakra
The Soul Star Chakra is not part of the most widely known 7 Chakra System.  This chakra exists 'outside' the physical body and links the temporal self with the united, eternal, non-physical 'self'.  Teal Swan explains how this chakra fits into the larger chakra system and what we can do to strengthen and connect to the Soul Star Chakra.

The Problem With "What Resonates" With You
The problem with “what resonates with you” is that when something resonates with you, you are saying that it holds the same frequency as you currently do.  This implies agreement instead of discordance. And you know that discordance does not always imply that something is false or wrong..

The 'If You Love Me' Pattern in Relationships

Attraction (Why You Are Attracted To The People You're Attracted To)
Attraction is arguably one of the greatest elements of unconscious human behavior, even amongst the most conscious people. It is like a two-sided coin. On one side, it can be a feeling state of the highest blissful excitement. On the other it can induce a feeling state of the lowest desperate suffering.

The Media - both the conscious and shadow side can be quite the ominous force to a lot of us, being moved by big money and shadowy figures that most of us have little to no connection towards.  Two things that bring can bring The Media down from the untouchable heights are the consciousness that it is a business and that it is run by actual human beings who also have shadow sides.  Teal Swan enlightens us on the some of the trauma’s people experience that put people into careers of journalism and what the Media is really out to do.

Teal Swan's Stance on Suicide
Many media outlets (as well as the people who read and watch them) have come under the false perception that Teal Swan is encouraging people to commit suicide.  This failure to look deeper into Teal Swan's actual message, methodology, processes and content is ironically the very same reason suicidal individuals feel so isolated and emotionally starved by their families and by society at large today.  In this episode, Teal Swan clarifies her stance on suicide.

September 14, 2019
The Zero Sum Game (What is A Zero Sum Game and How To End One)
The Zero Sum Game is a Win Lose scenario that we are often playing in our relationships.  For whatever reason, conscious or subconscious we often find ourselves in zero sum games.  Telling a partner that if they act in one way we break up with them, telling a boss that if we don’t get paid more we quite.  These are scenarios where only 1 side is fought for rather than finding a win win or compatibility rather than compromise.

Alcoholism and How to Quit Alcohol
Alcoholism or Alcohol Use Disorder is the current term to describe the abuse of Alcohol or being addicted to Alcohol.  However even naming addiction to alcohol a disorder conveys a fundamental misunderstanding of this addiction.  Alcoholism is a symptom of deeper wounds originating from being out of control and feeling unsafe if your relationships.  Once we understand this deeper root, can we really get a handle on this “disorder” afflicting so many people in the world today.

The Mandela Effect
The Mandela Effect is a theory that a timeline or glitch in our reality has caused events in the past to change. Events like Nelson Mandela’s Death, Martin Luther Kings Death and the spelling of The Berenstain Bears.  The easiest explanation is a collective false memory but is it as simple as this?

React Positively OR ELSE!
Expecting people to react positively when you have shared a truth about your life that is going to have a negative impact on another person isn’t just unrealistic, it can even be cruel!  In this episode, Teal Swan exposes a shadow that we need to be aware of on the path of authenticity when it comes to sharing your authenticity with others.

Are You a Friend or a Foe Under the Guise of a Friend?
 Sometimes we may see it as a duty to keep our friends in check.  This arises especially when our friends have power.  When power is involved and we fear power, we may feel the need to play devils advocate.  This episode explains how we may be in a negative power dynamic ourselves and seeking to take our friend down, rather than assisting them to become aware. 
19:33

Your Parents Aren't The Problem... The Parents Within You Are!
 Teal Swan teaches about the root of the problems you are facing in your life.  Most of the time, the root of those problems is your relationship to your parents/adult caregivers as a child.  In this episode, she throws a curveball by teaching that once you are grown up, your Parents are not the source of your problems anymore, the parents that you have internalized however are.  In our childhoods we develop a plethora of coping strategies to deal with perceived threats from our circumstances, parents or upbringing.  A genius coping strategy is to create internalized parents that give us back control and keep us safe.  But this strategy prevent us from getting what we really want in life once we are grown up.

One Way to Ruin a Relationship (The Love Doesn't Exist Story)
One way to ruin a relationship is by harboring the belief that Love Doesn’t Exist.  Love doesn’t exist?  What if I told you that the belief that 'love doesn’t exist' is a coping strategy and a way to protect yourself.  Perhaps you weren’t truly seen as a child, or you had to develop a personality that wasn’t truly yours in order to protect yourself from scrutinizing parents.  Teal Swan not only dives into this paradigm but how to fix it.

The Biggest Barrier to Awareness
The biggest barrier to Awareness is our unwillingness to see and accept a truth that causes us to feel pain or that would imply we need to make a change that is painful to make. Denial is a coping mechanism when dealing with a reality that you cannot change and this is often learned in childhood, as we are often unable to change our childhood situations.  Teal Swan explains that now that we can change, we are often left with this coping mechanism when seeing something is painful or when seeing something implies change.

Objective Truth (Do We Create Our Own Reality?)

You Can't Heal Yourself Out of a Desire!
 Is it wrong to desire?  Can you heal yourself out of a desire through meditation, personal work or Shadow Work?  We often have desires within ourselves that we feel are wrong to have or that will cause us pain.  Perhaps the question is not whether the desire is good or bad but WHY we have it.  Following this line of thinking, Teal Swan explains how you can find your true desire and begin to meet this need directly instead of through unconscious manipulation.

How To Find Your Excellence (The Recognition of Excellence is 100% Dependent Upon Desire)
Excellence is inherent within every human being.  We have traits that make unique things easy for us to do and we all have innate gifts that ensure we will be excellent at something.  However, often this excellence is squelched by those who cannot see it within us, or who have different desires and therefore ideas of what excellence is.  In this episode, Teal Swan helps us understand where and why we may have lost touch with our own excellence and how to find it again.

Depression can be an unrelenting force in your life.  Understanding Depression begins with seeking and accepting the ways that you feel futility within your life.  Many people know they feel futile but still subconsciously resist this futility.  The key to understanding, overcoming, and eventually healing depression may lie in accepting the aspects and resolving the aspects of your life that you feel Futile about.  Teal explains depression in detail in this episode.

Touch Deprived! (Touch…The Need You Are Suppressing)
 Physical Touch is something that doesn’t necessarily make sense to modern day science.  But the mind and body are inextricably connected. With every physical ailment we have, there is a corresponding mental or emotional cause at the root of it.  Touch is also a way to communicate without words.  But touch can be corrupted, especially with physical or sexual abuse.  Our relationship to touch may be destroyed or confused.  So Teal Swan explains that it is vital that we improve our relationship to touch, because it is something physical humans literally cannot live without.

What Every Man Needs To Know About Women
 In this episode, Teal Swan reveals what every man should know about every woman... Her inherent biology of fear.  This advice on Relationships is crucial because women live with fear constantly and men do not know this fear.  As a result, men do not understand women are living with fear constantly.  Relationships are difficult when men do not understand this, it causes them to prioritize the wrong thing in any given moment to create security in their relationships with women.  And women are so used to living in fear, they do not realize they are living in it.

Bulldozing (The Way To Ruin Your Relationship With Yourself)
 Bulldozing usually refers to not accommodating others but by far the more important form of bulldozing, is the bulldozing we do to ourselves.  We grew up in situations where our emotions were not ok.  In order to stay safe in those situations we would bulldoze our own emotions in order to stay safe and avoid conflict.  Teal Swan explains how learning to recognize the ways we bulldoze ourselves and others, and stopping this pattern within ourselves is key to integration as well as health and happiness.

The Truth About Channels and Channeling
 Channeling is the act of translating messages from another consciousness.  In the spiritual field, this usually means translating messages from beings that exist outside of the 3D reality. A Channel is a person who has the ability to channel these beings.  Their words are often taken as the ultimate truth because they are coming from higher dimensions, but most people don’t understand they have their own perspectives and therefore limitations of perspective as well.

A Major Shift That Must Occur in the Mental Health Field
 There are parts of our mental health system that are broken and need change. One of these is simply a mindset. The inability to take on patients realities does not mean perpetuating or condoning their reality in the mental health field. But it does mean validating their emotions as real and stepping into their first person perspective. I also means questioning our own reality. We need to close the distance between psychologist and patient, if people aren’t connected and able to accommodate each other's reality, real growth cannot occur. In this episode, Teal swan goes into detail about specifically what needs to change.

 Fame, Famousness and Significance are all related and give us an internal look into to the Human Ego and how the desire for fame can even be dangerous.  In our past and childhood if we weren't shown the attention and love we deserved, there is a good chance seeking fame would be imbedded in our life's purpose.  If fame attracts you, you will need to ask yourself internal questions, what about fame that you want.  Answering this question could determine whether you'd be happy making it or not.

Is Money the Root of All Evil?

You Don't Fear The Unknown
As people, we become addicted to knowing. We become addicted to the acquiring of knowledge. When we grasp a new concept, our brain releases a dose of chemicals similar to opium. Knowledge addiction gives the physical human a strong evolutionary advantage. We are guaranteed to progress if we are hard wired to learn. The human biological system, being a reflection of the greater universe (which is geared towards expansion), is essentially designed to maximize the rate at which new but understandable information is acquired. Once you have acquired a new bit of information, you spend your time learning something else. Without thinking about it, we pick out experiences that are new; experiences which cause us to know more. A biological addiction to know more is perfect design because it endows the physical human with a perpetuating beneficial learning behavior, even if misery and negative consequences are experienced along the way. This is helpful in an environment of contrast such as this.

Will Healing Ever End?
When people start off on the path of healing something, they often do so with a feeling of excitement and empowerment. We feel like we have the power to actually create the feel good life that we want. Any time we find a new tool to heal with or approach to healing or new process and we experience some healing with it, we feel like we have finally found THE answer and that in no time, we will be completely healed. We will be living a healthy life of total bliss and harmony. And then something terrible happens. We hit something else that needs to be healed.

Why We Can't Feel Loved For Who We Are
The human ego is essentially the perception of yourself as a separate self. When you learn to call yourself by a name, you learn to see yourself as an ‘it’ or a ‘thing’, which automatically makes you separate from every other ‘it’ or ‘thing’ in the universe. When you are born, your ego is not formed yet because you do not intellectually conceptualize of who you are because you do not think of yourself as a separate thing yet. So, you do not identify with anything yet.

Why Women Give Mixed Messages - (Women in the Work Place)
Why do women give mixed messages? Many women have a split within themselves. The part that wants the traditional female role in society and the part that doesn’t. They struggle with today's society and the pressure to be both feminine and masculine. Teal shows how we can integrate the too opposing perspectives and find a place of peace in such a dichotomy. Giving mixed messages and women in the work place is a great video with Teal Swan showing her raw vulnerability.

Why Love Turns Into Hate
You have all heard the sayings: There is a fine line between love and hate. Relationships are essentially a balancing act between love and hate. Haters are just confused lovers. You have to love someone to hate them. The opposite of hate is not love, it is indifference… If you hate someone, you still care.

Why Fans Turn Into Haters - The Psychology of Idolization
To idolize someone is to admire or revere someone excessively. Obviously “excessive” is a matter of perception. It is subjective. One person would feel that putting pictures of someone on your wall (like nearly every teenager does with their favorite celebrity) is excessive admiration. One might feel like that is a perfectly healthy form of appreciation. To admire something and to deeply respect something and to appreciate something is healthy. But there are some key ways that idolization can and does turn negative.

Why Don't We Remember Our Past Lives?
Your eternal aspect is not oriented towards the past; it is always using the past as a platform for what is to come. We are always oriented towards the expansion the improvement. When you come into a new life, you close your eyes to the past, in order to open them to a new existence. The benefit of a new life is a new perspective... other than a perspective that is an accumulation of every other life as well. That would be like trying to listen to a billion channels on a radio at the same time. Our eternal being (often called a soul) manages to be all these channels at once. Which is why you can see your past lives when you withdraw your focus and re-align with your eternal consciousness like when the Buddha was meditating under the Bodhi tree. We come into one singular life focused on this singular life.
15:15
November 26, 2018
Why Do Some People Hate Teal?
Try to conceptualize of what we often call God or Source as a unified consciousness. Try to imagine that it is all there is. It might not be as easy as it sounds to imagine because your brain is designed for the physical world, which is a world of singularity. It’s not designed to be able to comprehend oneness. When the brain thinks of one, it thinks of a thing. But the minute you think of a thing, it implies that that thing is separate from something else, even if that something else is just empty space or air. That thing has definition and it has a beginning and end. But can you stretch your mind enough to imagine a consciousness that has no beginning or end? A consciousness so all-inclusive that there is nothing in existence that is not part of it?

Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People? (Why Life Seems Unfair)
You have been taught that your thoughts come in response to what you are observing. This is the first grand illusion that we have collectively stepped into and accepted as a species.

Why You Can't Win and What You Can Do To Win
All of us have something we want to succeed at. Maybe it’s winning a gold medal or a championship, maybe it’s having a relationship that is committed and loving, maybe it’s owning your own business. If you succeeded at this thing, you would consider it a win. But sometimes it seems like no matter how hard you try, you can’t succeed. So what is standing between you and this win?

What Kind Of Supportive Are You?
Receiving Support and Being Supportive in a relationship are very different things. We intrinsically give certain levels of support and if we are looking for our partner to support us in a way that is not natural to them, we may be missing out on our own needs being met. This Ask Teal video about ‘What kind of supportive are you’ by Teal Swan helps shed some light on this issue.

What is a Ghost? (Episode about Ghosts and Hauntings)
From nonphysical perspective, which is eternal united consciousness, source (what we are) projects forth thought. When that thought is focused on with enough intent, and thus has enough energy flowing to it, it becomes thought form. When thought form is focused on with enough intent, it becomes physical form.

What Does It Mean To Be Allowing?
You have heard spiritual teachers talk again and again about allowing. The state of allowing is perhaps the highest spiritual state to exist in. But what does it mean to be allowing? To be in a state of "allowing", means to deliberately choose thoughts, words and actions that allow your desires to manifest in your reality. In order for you to allow your desires to manifest, your thoughts, words and actions must line up with your desires.

Want to Be Happy? Give Up on Happiness!
Happiness has become the new enlightenment. It has become the new heaven. An unattainable goal, a finish line that we keep chasing. When spiritual teachers (including myself) emphasize the importance of happiness and god forbid say that the purpose of life is happiness, the automatic assumption is that if you aren’t happy, you are doing something wrong. That only adds to the unhappiness. There is a kind of shame that arises within us when we are unhappy. This is especially painful when we identify with being unhappy.

Using People (Ask Teal Episode About Interdependence)
You have most likely heard every spiritual teacher (including myself) explain that a key ingredient to happiness is to provide yourself with what you are looking for from others. In human culture there is a lot of emphasis put on the idea that it is not ok to use people for our own benefit. This is why we don't like to ask people for help. We worry that asking people for what we need and want is "using" them. The problem with this belief is that this is what we do every day. We use people. It is not possible to do anything other than this. You are using everything in your life and every one in your life as a tool to increase your happiness. For example, you are using your lover. You're using him or her as a tool to increase your own joy and self worth. You are using your children. You are using them to feel as if your life matters. You are using your friends. You're using them to feel a sense of security. And so, when we ask ourselves is it ok to use people? The answer is yes. We do it all day every day. And it just so happens that using people and loving people does not have to be a contradiction in terms.

Upset (What To Do When You're Upset)
When you feel upset it is critical to know that you cannot control this emotional upset once it has occurred. You can only respond to it. It is how you respond to an upset that makes the difference between going further off your due north course or back on your due north course. When we do not use an upset to alert us to awaken or to become fully aware, we tend to immediately unconsciously react to the situation at hand.

How To Meet An Unmet Need
I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it again. No matter how much you may want it to be different, you have needs. Every being on earth has needs. A need is something that is required in order to live, succeed or be happy. And you cannot un-require something that is required. You cannot argue your way into seeing that it isn’t necessary. You have one option when it comes to your needs and that is to meet them.

Happiness is The Purpose of Your Life! Want to Know Why?

Unconditional Love (How to Love Unconditionally)
Love is an identical vibration to appreciation. And appreciation is nothing more than positively focusing towards something. This means that unconditional love is the same as unconditional positive focus. A simpler way of putting this is that unconditional love is positive focus (appreciation) that is not conditional upon how another person acts.

TRUST (What Is Trust and How To Build Trust In Relationships)
The concept of trust plays a huge role in our relationships. For a relationship to feel good, we need to be able to trust the other person. But what the hell does that really mean? For most people trust may be important, but it is like an abstract concept. If it’s an abstract concept, what the hell are you supposed to practically do to create trust? That’s what I’m going to clear up for you today.

The Victor Trap
We all know the dangers involved with falling into victim mentality. Why? Because spiritual teachers and psychologists and self help gurus have been warning you about these dangers for years. The ego often uses victimhood as a way to ensure it’s own survival or shall we say positive self-image. And the problem with the ego is that it can make positive relationships, which are the heart of our life, really hard if not impossible to pull off. But today, I am not here to tell you anymore about the dangers of victim mentality. I’m here to expose a hidden egoic pitfall that exists to the opposite extreme… Those who are dedicated to never seeing themselves or being seen as the victim

The Victim Control Dynamic
The most frightening patterns of behavior on earth are behavioral patterns that are disguised.

The Ultimate Life Hack (The Secret to Understanding People)
Family therapists and Child therapists have known for a long time that the key to understanding children, even those who are not capable of speaking yet, is that they set you up to feel how they feel. So, however they make you feel and however you feel about them is actually an exact mirror of how you are making them feel and of how they feel about you. Today, I’m going to tell you that this dynamic does not actually end with childhood.

The Secret of Suffering
In this episode, Teal explains that Suffering is a process. Therefore the most important question you are going to have to consider is HOW am I suffering? What are the exact mechanics of my suffering? Pain comes in response to something. Pain is a process. It is a response, whether it is emotional or physical. It happens when we resist something that we perceive. When you feel the hit of intense emotional of physical pain, close your eyes and ask yourself what did this pain come in response to? How is this process of suffering happening within me specifically? Only than can you address WHY you are suffering.

The Sad Truth About Most Gurus
Chances are if you are watching this, you have been on the path of spirituality and/or self help for long enough to have encountered several teachers, experts and leaders. But chances are, you do not clearly see the most common dysfunction among them because they do not see this dysfunction in themselves. This most common dysfunction is a direct contradiction to the very healing they profess to stand for. And it is a dynamic that can turn dangerous.

The Rat Cage (And How to Get Out of It)
Most men on earth think they are free. The reason for this is that they have been sold an idea about what freedom is. They believe more in the beliefs they have been indoctrinated with than they believe in their own emotional guidance system. As long as they live in alignment with the beliefs they have been sold, they think they have freedom. But what if the idea of freedom that has been sold to you is actually a prison? What if I told you that the beliefs you live your life by are the bars of your own perfect jail cell?

The Pain Principal
You can think of yourself as an essence that projects itself forth into an idea. That idea is the idea of a person. With enough focus on that idea of a person, a person manifests in the physical dimension. You then call that person me or I. You think that is who you really are. You forget the essence behind your persona because you become so heavily identified with the persona. But that persona, when it meets with trauma in the world, copes by dividing into fragments. So the essence is now feeding several different personas. This means you are not a singularity. You are a multiplicity.

The Octopus Technique
In order to exit our own reality so as to enter theirs, and by doing so completely attune to them, I want to teach you a technique to use. I call it The Octopus Technique.

The Next Step In The Game

The Meaning of Pain
All species on earth are physically designed to avoid pain and gain pleasure. We are designed for the constant movement away from pain and towards pleasure. This is not a tormenting process until we add painful meaning to pain… until we make feeling pain mean something. This causes us to resist pain itself. And what do we know about resistance? Whatever we resist persists. Most of us are absolutely terrified of pain because of what we have made pain mean.

Today's Great Epidemic (And How To Cure It)
Just what is the Emotional Dark Age? It is the age of ignorance relative to emotions. Most people on earth do not understand emotions; they are not terribly conscious of them, they do not know what function they serve, they do not know what to do with them. This is a serious problem considering that emotions are the very basis of every person’s life experience.

The Future
Like an ebb and flow, throughout history the human race has vacillated in its attitude towards the future. Sometimes, people generally feel optimistic and excited for what the future holds. At other times, people generally feel fear and doom about the future. Currently, we are in a phase where people feel so much fear about the future. In large part, this is because people do not understand how the future really works.

The Divine Feminine - How To Awaken The Divine Feminine Within You
In the past, Teal has spoken a lot about the invalidation of negative emotions and about how to deal with emotions in general because people tend to struggle the most with negative emotions. And societally speaking, most societies deem positive emotion acceptable and negative emotion unacceptable. However, our resistance to emotion as a species is not limited to negative emotions. Often, we disapprove of, dismiss, disregard, invalidate, trivialize and suppress positive emotions in ourselves and in other people as well. In this episode, Teal explains how this works, the long terms effects of it and teaches us how to avoid doing this to one another.

Ascended Masters? Who or What are The Ascended Masters?
At our most fundamental level, we are all one. The universe is a vast and endless ocean of energy. When energy begins to take shape (like it does when this universal energy desires to become a singular perspective) it becomes thought. That thought then becomes more singular… It becomes thought form.

The Anatomy of Loneliness
At a certain point in our spiritual development, we are confronted with the fact that the very things that once liberated us are now the things that holds us prisoner. We realize that in wanting to feel better or think better, we are asking ourselves to feel and think and be different. We discover that by trying to feel better or think better, or be better, we are resisting ourselves. And then the whole game changes. We leave behind the desire for manifestation. We replace all wants for the want for oneness with ourselves. We stop wanting to heal because it no longer feels good to think that something about ourselves is broken. Instead, we begin to crave integration. The spiritual apex we begin to pursue is authenticity. Authenticity is an idea that appeals to us when we begin to live in the present moment. We fall in love with what is.

Cannabis and Spirituality (Is Pot a Beneficial Spiritual Drug?)
All plants possess unique energetic frequencies and those frequencies can teach a new way of thinking and being. Cannabis teaches about a great many things including: The path of least resistance, oneness, surrender, release, letting go, present moment, “Livity”, communion, allowing, the impermanence and illusion of the physical dimension, the frailness of boundaries, inhibition, the unhealthiness of control, the fear that lies behind the bold, confident mask of the ego and effortless being.

Spiritual Bypassing
Spiritual bypassing is the cancer of the spiritual world. It is a disease that has run rampant in both religious and non-religious circles. Spiritual bypassing (or whitewashing) is the act of using spiritual beliefs to avoid facing or healing one’s painful feelings, unresolved wounds and unmet needs. It is a state of avoidance. Because it is a state of avoidance, it is a state of resistance. I personally, consider Spiritual bypassing to be the shadow side of spirituality.

Skepticism
Skepticism is the opposite of suspended judgment. It is the rigid judgment that absolute certain knowledge is impossible. This is why skepticism does not feel good emotionally to the skeptic or to those who are on the receiving end of the skeptic. It is tempting to think skepticism can be healthy but it cannot. There is no such thing as healthy skepticism. To experience how unhealthy skepticism is, next time you encounter skepticism, pay attention to and feel how skepticism robs things of energy and forward movement, a bit like water being thrown on a fire.

Self Trust vs. Independence
All of your relationships are a reflection of your relationship with yourself. The way you feel in your relationships is a reflection of the way you feel in your relationship with yourself. Self help gurus and Spiritual Teachers often teach their disciples this lesson and then proceed to guide people towards total responsibility for the state of one’s own life and relationships. But then, extending this responsibility further, they guide their disciples towards the state of complete self-sufficiency and independence from others.

Self Soothing Process
Your mind is meant to be a tool that you can use to assist your intention for this life. But this is simply not the reality for most people. For most of us, our mind uses us. When painful things happen, our mind is pulled into the vibrational range of the event that occurred and is then a point of attraction to which like-thoughts are drawn. Soon, we are spiraling downwards and spiraling fast. You are the junction where two aspects of you meet, your eternal aspect and your temporal aspect. The way you feel is really about the vibrational similarity or difference between these two aspects of you. If they are far apart in vibration you experience negative emotion and if they are close together, you experience positive emotion. Your thought influences the vibration you hold.

Self Love - The Great Shortcut to Enlightenment
There is a wholeness that calls to all people, we are born with its song ringing in our ears, and yet we come to know it first by its absence. For most people, the time comes in adulthood when the emptiness within us grows so large it can not be filled externally. And running from fears becomes a fight that we can’t keep fighting.

Self Concept, The Enemy of Awakening (Accept the Badness Within Yourself)
Teal Swan explains that accepting the badness within yourself is critical in order to become enlightened. The enemy of awakening is about always being identified with being good and maintaining your self-concept. This is difficult because we have the ability to re-frame anything, so that we see ourselves as being good or as doing a good thing when the truth is totally the opposite.

The Sacred Directive of Relationships
Life, we use this word all the time. But what does it mean? What is life made of? The answer is relationships. Your life is only ever as happy as your relationships. This includes your relationship with yourself. And relationships are the heart of our expansion in this life. Expansion was the purpose for this life. Expansion is all about contrast. Wanted and unwanted. Light and dark. So, we find that relationships are the source of our greatest joy and the source of our greatest pain.
12:38
November 25, 2018
Responsibility (Why, When and How To Take It)
You can see how the word responsibility is in essence the ability to respond. To become responsible is to step into this ability and chose to both create and respond to your life instead of to passively react to it as if it is happening to you. It is stepping into authority over yourself. It is a highly empowered state. It is a state of accountability. Responsibility is the opposite of the state of victimhood. In victimhood, one feels that they do not govern themselves or their own life. One feels no ability to choose and one has lost touch with their sense of free will. They are in a state of powerlessness relative to themselves and their life. Responsibility is when someone healthily claims their power over themselves and their own life.

Resentment - How to Let Go of Resentment
Resentment is one of the strongest hooks that anchors a person to the past. The thing is, it is even stronger if it is ignored. It has to be directly faced and resolved. Resentment is a state of being in pain as a result of perceiving that you have been treated wrongly, unfairly and unjustly. It usually involves not feeling willing or able to accept someone or something that you reject. I call it a state of being because it is not an emotion in and of itself; instead it is like a soup of different emotions all associated with being treated unfairly. Emotions like dumfounded, fear, anger, disgust and sadness.

Regression therapy has been a cornerstone of healing from past trauma for thousands of years. Regression therapy is essentially any healing process that involves revisiting the past memories of experiences that are the source of current issues. The aim of doing so is to heal, transform and integrate their unconscious influence on the now. It has been a cornerstone of healing because it works.

Increase Your Energy Levels Technique
Ideally, we would all have tons of energy and zest for life all day every day. However, this is not always the case. Ultimately, a decrease in energy is the result of thinking and saying and doing things that are not in alignment with what we really want and who we really are. All of my other videos address this root cause. But today, I have a technique for you to use if you’re in need of a quick boost in your energy levels.

Racism
We all know there are some genuine bigots out there in the world. But for most of the modern world, being racist is a big faux pas. You can’t be seen as a good person and be a racist at the same time. Our ego is primarily attached to one thing, how it looks to other people. So, we made racism unacceptable in ourselves. As a result, most of us have denied, disowned, rejected and suppressed any aspect of us that could be perceived as racist. We became politically correct relative to race. But just because we made racism unacceptable in ourselves, doesn’t mean it went away. In much the same way that making anger unacceptable doesn’t make it so you aren’t angry anymore. You simply created a conscious and subconscious relationship to racism. There is a difference between what is right and what is real.

Psychic Attack
Psychic attack is a fancy name for negative energy being focused you with the conscious or subconscious intention to inflict harm upon you, or any aspect of your life. Focus manipulates and moves energy. Harm can be focused towards your emotional, physical, spiritual or mental state. Those negative energies are projected in the form of thought and intention. They are a byproduct of the psyche. At the extreme end of the scale of psychic attack, we see the deliberate practice of hexes and curses; in other words, spells that were created to harm instead of benefit an individual.

The Positive Completion Process
As most of you know I have created a process called The Completion Process. I have written a book detailing this process and how to use it in your daily life. Just like the process itself, this book is titled: The Completion Process. If you haven’t done so already, I highly suggest learning this process which is designed to heal the aspects of the past that are causing you pain in your current life. But something you don’t know and something I didn’t write about in the book is that you can also use it to amplify positive memories and therefore their positive effect on your current and future life. This process is extremely beneficial if we chronically struggle to feel positive emotions.

Polyamory
People have a common misconception about polyamory and that is that polyamory is all about sex. This is not the case. Polyamory is about intimacy. Sex may or may not be a part of intimacy, but it is definitely not intimacy in and of itself. Intimacy is closeness; I even go so far as to say that it is closeness to the degree that you penetrate someone’s internal world. You see into them, feel into them, listen into them, and move to understand them. And Vice versa. It is a deep act of sharing.
19:23
November 25, 2018
Political Correctness
We cannot discuss political correctness without speaking about prejudice and stereotypes. After all, a person who is politically correct (or PC) is someone who seeks to set right the injustices done in the past by prejudice and stereotyping specifically by changing or avoiding language that may offend those people. Reality check moment…We are all prejudice to one degree or another. And we all stereotype to one degree or another. Regardless of whether we censor those sentiments or not.

Personal Boundaries vs. Oneness (How to Develop Healthy Boundaries)
Having a sense of self vs. other is part of participating in this physical dimension. The individual perspective and experience is what is currently serving the expansion of this universe. And so, we perceive a difference between ourselves and the rest of the world. This individual perspective is a kind of boundary that defines us from everything else. We have heard again and again from self help experts and psychologists that it is crucial to our wellbeing to develop healthy boundaries. But what are boundaries really?

Parenting 2.0
Your child is the progression of your consciousness. A child’s consciousness comes into life as the culmination of the consciousness accrued at that time of both its mother and father.

Oedipus Complex (Relationship and Fate)
The idea of incest sends shivers up our spine, so it is understandable how so many of us would rather deny that sexual feelings exist between parents and children. But the truth is, though not every one is effected by it to the same degree, the Oedipus complex is alive and well within all of us. And until we recognize its patterns, and accept them, we are doomed to neurotically repeat the same pattern in all of our relationships that we originally had with our parents.

Is Desire Really The Root Of Suffering?
Desire has been a big topic of controversy within the spiritual community. Spiritual teachers (Like the Buddha) say that desire is the root of suffering. They say that happiness is the result of learning how to rid oneself of desire. But even the desire to rid yourself of desire, is a desire. So you can never truly rid yourself of desire and you can never lie to yourself enough to convince yourself that you don’t want what you want. So why is it that thousands of people have experienced relief from supposedly ridding themselves of desire?

Nightmares (The Solution To Bad Dreams)
Dreams are a direct reflection of what is going on with you vibrationally. The things you’ve been thinking and the feelings you’ve been feeling in your waking life and what manifests in your reality are always a match. Your dreams are always a vibrational match to what you’ve been thinking and feeling as well. Anything you focus on or pay attention to could manifest as a dream. Because you have no resistance in your sleep, you are not tensing yourself against the conditions of your life or condemning yourself or pretending things are different than they are and so you are able to see the reflection of your vibration exactly as it is

Narcissism
Narcissism finds its roots in Greek mythology. Narcissus was a man who fell in love with his own image when it was reflected in a pool of water. In today’s terms, narcissism means to derive gratification from vanity or egotistical admiration of one’s own attributes. It is seen as a form of self-defeating pride. But I, for one completely disagree with this view of narcissism. There is nothing innately wrong with a Narcissus. Adoring one’s own reflection, deriving gratification from admiring oneself is in fact healthy. It is much healthier than being critical of oneself or striving to be self less (which is actually not possible). But our culture, which has been heavily influenced for thousands of years by biblical Christianity, recognizes self-love as vanity and ultimately as pride, which is one of the original seven sins. And so, sadly, narcissus has become the poster child not only for self-love, but also for pride. As a result, we confuse self-love with selfishness, when they are drastically different things.

Money and Spirituality (Is it Right to Charge Money for Spiritual or Healing Services?)
The idea that spirituality and money can't co exist and that there is something ethically wrong with turning spirituality into a business is a sacred idea to many of us. We take it as so much of a truth; that we are unwilling to question it fully. In actuality, assigning value to your offering on a spiritual level is no different than assigning a value to an item that is totally unrelated to spirituality because the item is no less spiritual than your spiritual work is. Physical, material things are not separate from source energy. They are not separate from spirit. They are extensions of spirit. What does this mean? Money too is an extension of spirit; so it is a misunderstanding to say that money and spirituality is a contradiction.

Mercury Retrograde
In the new age, spiritual and astrological community, mercury retrogrades have a bad reputation. In fact, it has become a joke. Anytime a series of unfortunate events happen you’ll hear someone say, “mercury must be in retrograde”. Those of us who have suffered from the influence of mercury going retrograde find ourselves torn between wanting to know when they are coming so we can prepare for them and not wanting to know when they are even happening. You’ll often hear the saying “I just want to hide under the covers until it is all over." But fear not, mercury retrogrades are only frightening when you don’t know how to use their energy to your advantage.

Meet Your Needs!
You have one option when it comes to your needs and that is to meet them. I’m going to repeat what I just said so it sinks in… Your one option when it comes to needs is to meet them. Why is this your one option? Because if you do not meet those needs consciously, you will meet them subconsciously. This is what manipulation is.

Meaning - The Self Destruct Button
We encounter various experiences in our day-to-day life. Some we could consider positive and some we could consider negative. But the quality of our experience relative to those experiences is flavored by one thing and that is the meaning that we assign to the experience. It is well known that the experience of labor and birth can be drastically more or less painful from one mother to the next based on the meaning she assigns to the experience. Two people’s experience of the

Masturbation - Is it Good Or is it Bad?
Masturbation is a natural inclination when we are manifested in physical bodies because it is natural to be drawn to things that induce a sensation of pleasure. This is why children naturally begin to experiment with masturbation at a young age. But many of us alive today have been shamed for it. We were raised to believe that masturbation was immoral, evil, wrong, or an embarrassment. And many people, including spiritual teachers believe that masturbation is spiritually detrimental. So which is it? Is masturbation bad or good? The answer is like any tool; it can be both. So it all comes down to the conscious and subconscious intentions of the wielder.

Eight Essential Ingredients for a Successful Marriage
Marriage is not just the act of two people making their relationship public and permanent. It is the promise which two people make to each other to enter into a bond which will constantly require growth from both parties in order to stay intact. For many reasons, marriage in this day and age is increasingly cut short by divorce. Couples often venture into marriage with the illusion that their relationship and feelings for each other will never change. But relationships are a dynamic, mutable force. And loving someone is something we learn to do. It is something we must practice. Here are eight ways to help ensure that you and your partner will experience not just an enduring relationship, but a thriving relationship as well.

When Things are Beyond Your Control
Many of us, who are really suffering do not realize that it is because we feel completely out of control. Some of our biggest triggers are in fact the result of this feeling. Even things we would not at face value think are about this. For example, people forming negative opinions about us. If someone has made their mind up about us and we can’t change the way they are thinking about us because they can’t be reasoned with… What is upsetting us in this situation is that we are completely out of control. First and foremost, we have to ask ourselves honestly “What is so bad about being out of control?” We may find that being out of control means that someone or something else is in control. This is all well and good if we trust that someone or something. But if our life experience has taught us to distrust others and distrust the universe at large (because we have been hurt over and over again), being out of control can mean to us that we are going to get hurt at the very least and that we may just be in a fight for our very survival. Can you imagine the terror of your survival being in the hands of someone who does not have your best interests at heart?

The Justification Roadblock
Why do I use the word addiction? Because we can use comfort to cover over something we are trying to avoid, we develop a dependence on it to the point that if it is taken away, we have extreme reactions to it as if we were in withdrawal, we limit ourselves and our lives while inside our comfort zone and yet we continue to stay in it even when we know it is harming us. This is in fact the criteria for an addiction.

Jealousy and Envy (And How To Deal With It)
Envy is the emotion that occurs when we experience an extreme desire for something that someone else has, whether it is a quality, achievement or possession but we don’t think we can have it. Jealousy is the emotion that occurs when we anticipate or feel the loss of something of great value to us, whether it be a quality, achievement or possession. In other words, one exists when we wish to keep what we have and the other occurs when we want to get what we don’t have and in either case, feel powerless to do so. Why do these emotional states feel so similar (similar enough to be confused as one another)?

The "Is It Useful" Tool
Having the truth allows us to have cognitive closure. It makes us feel more secure. It makes order out of chaos and meaning out of meaninglessness. So, as people, we are likely to arrive at what we think is a truth and hold onto it for dear life. The problem is that we do not realize that the most objective truth is that truth itself is subjective. If I live in the projects, my truth is “You have to work hard for money”. This is not the same truth for someone who is born into a trust fund. So what is the truth? Do people have to work hard for money or does money come easy?

Integration - The True Mission of God
For thousands of years, duality within the universe has been like a war. Good versus evil; both sides unwilling to see itself in the other. If you are reading this article, chances are you identify more with being part of the side we call ‘good’. For thousands of years the approach that the ‘good’ took towards the ‘bad’ was that it needed to save itself from the bad. The approach it took was to separate itself from and protect itself from the bad. All the focus was placed on how to be good. If you read many of these old scripts, like the Bible, which were translated through the limited understanding of the human mind at that time, it paints the picture that there needs to be a power struggle between good and evil. It tells you how to be on one side, by separating yourself from the other.

Instant Belonging
The ego is essentially a separate sense of self. It is comprised of anything you identify yourself with. To be able to comprehend of yourself as a unique thing within a system, you have to perceive yourself and then define yourself as different to other things within the system. You cannot conceptualize of what you are unless you conceptualize of what you are not. An easier way of understanding this is to say that you cannot conceptualize of yourself as “Joe” until you are aware that you are not “Nancy”. This means the ego only exists in a state of comparison. It cannot exist without comparison. This process of individualization benefits us in certain ways. But there is a price to it as well… Separation. When we conceive of ourselves as a separate self, we are immediately not a part of anything we define as “other”. This is the true origin of loneliness.

Insomnia (How To Cure Your Insomnia)
Insomnia may sound like a minor problem but it isn’t. Insomnia can be absolute torture for those who suffer with it. It can be terrifying as well because it makes you feel like you have no control over yourself and yet your body is betraying you by not letting you get any rest and as a result your ability to function is stolen from you. For this reason, I’m going to explain what is really causing your insomnia.

Fidelity within Relationships
Infidelity is a betrayal of a relationship. And infidelity is a leading cause of lost friendships, breakups and divorces. Infidelity is not just about being sexually unfaithful. Infidelity is about any discontinuation of loyalty or support. And lack of allegiance. See where this blows the doors wide open for confusion? Infidelity is completely subjective. Some people have a very strict definition of fidelity and some have a very liberal definition of fidelity. It is based on belief systems, past experiences and education with regards to morality and personal preferences. If we witnessed or experienced infidelity in our childhood, we will most likely not even recognize the ways we lack fidelity. It will be a huge blind spot.

Many people wanting to be happy in life are constantly striving for this end goal of happiness. They think that if they just work hard enough and put in enough hours that happiness will eventually come. Teal speaks on how this approach of “the means justify the ends” doesn’t work and the secret to being happy is doing something you want and like to do in order to get what you want.

Parenting advice and tips for a difficult, bad and out of control child, what do I do? Many parents have children that are adhd, have behavioral issues such as not listening or are out of control. A life hack for this is to know that however the child is making you feel is often how they feel. Choices that are in your control are often a solution rather than harsh boundaries of yes and no.

Humility is defined as a modest or low view of one's own importance. Modesty is defined as the quality of not being too proud or confident about yourself or your abilities. Looking at these definitions, silence should fall upon you. What you should be thinking is… are you freaking kidding me? Take a good look at this definition and try hard to come up with a justification for how humility and modesty could possibly be a good thing.

How To Trust Yourself
Self trust can be summed up as the assured reliance on your own character, ability, strength, and truth. This sounds straightforward enough. The problem is, most of us have spent our lives listening to our parents, our government, our teachers and our bosses. We have been raised with the idea that we do not know what is best for ourselves. Instead, we are taught that other people who “know more than we do”; know what is best for us. Because of this, we choose what we think we are supposed to choose. We try to live according to what our society says is “right”. We allow ourselves to be who we are told that we are; and we are caught in an endless struggle of seeking approval and reaching for recognition. The result is that we loose trust in ourselves.

How To Stop Thinking
When we are thinking, we are not present with all of ourselves. We are not present with our bodies. We are not present with the way we feel. We are not present in the world. We are not present with other people. We are only present with the unfolding of thoughts and wherever our attention to those thoughts take us, regardless of whether that place is positive or painful. And this happens so unconsciously that we don’t even really know what we are thinking about specifically unless we decide to specifically observe our thoughts.

How to Stop Cutting
There is nowhere for the energy to turn but inward towards the self. And so they are expressed upon the self. In this episode Teal explains how to stop cutting and how to help someone who is cutting. Cutting is one of the most misunderstood human behaviors. And like any addiction, cutting is an extremely difficult thing to stop. We can become addicted to the chemicals that our own body produces in response to certain things with the same veracity that we become addicted to a street drug. And as soon as we associate the action of cutting with the corresponding feeling of relief (which is the result of endorphin release), we create neuropathways in our brain that automatically compel us to seek relief when we feel negative emotion by cutting.

How To Say No
All too often, we say yes to others whenever we are asked to do something, but deep down we feel resentful even though it was our decision in the first place. We suppress those feelings of resentment, but emotions like resentment are energy and energy has to go somewhere. So it does, those negative feelings express themselves through your body and begin to corrode at the bond between you and the people in your life. What we really resent is the fact that every time we are asked to do something, we feel faced with decision to do what would make us happy and be a bad, unlovable person or to do something we don't want to do and remain a good, lovable person. We develop the habit of never saying no because we want to be loved. We set ourselves up for failure by never saying no because we commit ourselves to a life lived for other people and not for ourselves. This isn't sustainable, because it takes a toll on our energy, body and relationships.

How To Overcome Anorexia
People who suffer from anorexia have deep and often suppressed trauma involving feeling out of control. When we are children, we are essentially out of control in our lives. We are at the mercy of the adults in our life. Our degree of safety is about how much we can trust them to be in control in a way that takes our best interests to heart. All too often however, we come into environments where it isn’t about our best interests at all, it is about their best interests, even to our detriment. We begin to feel as if we are simply a tool for their self-gratification.

How To Overcome Shame
When you were young, you came into a society. Socialization is a must in an un-awakened society. In an un-awakened society there are collective social and cultural values. When we value one thing, we often condemn the opposite. For example, self-sacrifice may be a social value and selfishness is condemned. We deem one good and the other bad. In order to keep the social order, we socialize children, which basically means we train them to behave in a way that is acceptable to the society we live in. We indoctrinate children with our social and cultural values and reward them when they adhere to those values. We punish children when they demonstrate behavior that contradicts our social and cultural values. So as a child, if we want our needs to be met, survive in society and have a chance at feeling things like love and belonging and contribution and safety, we have one option… to adopt those values of the society we are born into and hold ourselves to them!

The throat chakra is about the discovery of your individual purity and your individual truth and then the expression of that truth and purity which you find. For the throat chakra to be in a state of health, you must not only accept but own your originality and speak your truth according to that originality. The throat chakra governs the seeking and sharing of truth. It relies on inspiration. It is also the chakra that governs listening, communication, personal integrity and personal honor.

How To Open Your Third Eye Chakra
At the most basic level, your body is made up of energy. That energy organizes itself into the physical body you are looking at in the mirror every day. But before that energy organizes itself into physical body parts, it organizes itself into meridians and chakras. These chakras are centers of energy that lie along energy channels and each one holds a very specific vibration and has a specific purpose. Each chakra is a specific expression of Prana (otherwise known as life force or source energy). The chakras look a bit like funnels of energy or vortices. They both absorb and emit energy.

How to Lose Weight (Weight Loss and Obesity)
The excess weight is only an outer effect of a deep inner problem. You have excess fat because you are subconsciously convinced that you need that excess weight. And despite all of the steps you try and take to lose the weight, your body is doing its very best to give you what you need... it's convinced you need the weight. So the question is: Why do I need the weight? What is the positive intention for it being here?

How To Improve Your Relationship With Food And Eating
At this point in human evolution, eating is a part of all of our lives. The average person spends over an hour just eating and drinking in a day. This does not include the time that goes into shopping for your food or making it. This means that food is an unavoidable, big part of life. We have a relationship with our food whether we like it or not. Some people have a great relationship with food. They operate from a more live to eat approach than an eat to live approach. I am one of those people. Other people do not have a good relationship with food.

How to Get Rid of Anxiety (A Natural Cure for Anxiety)
Anxiety is a worldwide problem. It is a problem where our own biology—which was designed to insure our survival as hunters and gatherers—is sabotaging our bodies and minds. When we feel fear or stress, our body releases cortisol (the stress hormone). This cortisol release is part of the fight or flight response. Back in the day, it enabled us to do things like jump out of the way of an attacking predator or falling rock. In today's world, those kind of dangers aren't as relevant. But even though they aren't relevant, we still have the same biological reaction to stress. Any time we perceive danger, our body reacts the same way it would if our survival were at risk and our fight or flight response, is triggered. The body releases cortisol when we get cut off on the highway, our body releases cortisol when we think about being unable to pay the bills on time, our body releases cortisol when we are approached by our boss. What's more... our body released cortisol whenever we think a fearful thought. Basically, instead of our modern lives being less stressful, they are an absolute minefield of stress inducing scenarios. This means that Cortisol (the stress hormone) is reeking havoc on us in our day to day lives. In this episode of Ask Teal, Teal shares eleven tips, which will help us to get rid of anxiety.

How To Find A Core Belief
There are beliefs that are surface beliefs, such as “black people are angry” “kids should clean their rooms”, “I have to keep my job”, “Women are flaky.” Etc. These kinds of thoughts are like branches of a tree. Each one of them is the byproduct of a deeper, core belief. The core belief is like the root of a tree. Core beliefs are the building blocks of the life we are living. They are the source from with everything grows and most importantly, they are the very source of how we see ourselves and how we see the universe we live in. They are both the root of the joy and the root of the suffering in our lives.

How To Feel Emotions
Your emotions are like a compass. In the same way that a compass tells you where you are located in space and what direction to go, your emotions tell you what vibration you are currently holding and what direction to go to improve that personal frequency so that the circumstances of your life are in alignment with your desires. Your emotions are also the doorway to discovering the subconscious limitations you have which are preventing your happiness in life. Not being in touch with your emotions in lif
