In this recent post on Teal Bosworth Scott Swan, I wrote about what I'm calling her "originality gap." I cited a number of examples of recycled material – numerous blog posts which rely on word for word lifts from her own previous articles. As stated, this is called self-plagiarism. I also touched on her propensity for relaying ideas, words, and images that strongly resemble work from other sources. I have noted a number of these parallels in the noncasts.

For instance, in the noncast entitled "The Bottomless Rabbit Hole," I referenced a rather striking similarity between her painting called Alchemy and art from the series Fullmetal Alchemist. Imagine my surprise at seeing that image, once again, heading her recent blog post.

The image in question is called the "circle of transmutation." It is the unique construction of Fullmetal Alchemist. It is, therefore, proprietary material.

This is not, I should point out, a blog post about the symbolism in Fullmetal Alchemist or its, perhaps, broader implications. It's not an exploration of how either the manga or the anime series convey the principles of Alchemy. That's something I might enjoy reading. I love analyses of how mythology is expressed in popular culture, which is why I write so much on the topic. But, no, this new post is about how unhappy and afraid teal is and how this is somehow reflected in the principles of Western Alchemy.

More to the point, there is almost no original material in the post. Instead, it draws from a number of previously published works of hers: an article and video on feeling like the universe is against you, a video, and a poem about Alchemy.

Worse, much of this recycled material is also plagiarized from Wikipedia. The following block quote is the text on Alchemy as it appears in this recent blog post and in the previously published text from which it is taken. I have highlighted in green any phrases, words, and partial words, that are direct lifts from the Wikipedia entries on the same topics. (Some words are in different tenses, have been changed from verbs to gerunds, and so on.) I have highlighted text in rose that I have deemed to be paraphrases of those Wikipedia entries. It's not just the highlighted material that is plagiarized, however. To plagiarize content does not simply mean ripping text word for word or paraphrasing it. Any content that conveys "information that is not common knowledge or self-evident," from an un-cited source, is considered plagiarism.

... The Great Work of Alchemy is often described as a series of four stages, which are represented by colors…

Nigredo, a blackening or melanosis. [sic]  It is putrefaction or decomposition. Ingredients had to be cleansed and cooked extensively.  Internally, this represents a kind of spiritual death ["dark night of the soul"] and the confronting of one’s shadow aspect.

Albedo,a whitening or leucosis. [sic] The washing away of impurities.  The physical subject (such as an ingredient) is to be purified and divided into two opposing principles.  Internally, this represents regaining the original purity and receptivity of the soul.  Washing away the ashes to find the soul.

Cirtinitas, a yellowing or xanthosis. [sic] This refers to transmutation.  The actual turning of a subject (such as an ingredient) into its highest state such as silver into gold.  Internally this represents awakening. Becoming a manifestation of the soul.  Becoming a walking embodiment of the soul, rather than a muted reflection of it ["dawning of the 'solar light' inherent in one's being, and that the reflective 'lunar or soul light' was no longer necessary"].** It is a process of turning.

Rubedo,a reddening, purpling, or iosis. [sic]  Rubedo refers to the end state ["culmination"]Alchemical success.  The achievement of the perfected state.  The final state of perfection of a subject (such as an ingredient).  It can be interpreted as achieving enlightened consciousness and the total fusion of spirit and matter. ["wholeness"]  This stage is often represented by the symbol of the phoenix.

**If you doubt my analysis of the paraphrased section, see her stanza on Citrinitas:

We can see now
That the moon’s light ["lunar or soul light"]
Is not sun light, ["solar light"]
It is just a reflection.
We are just a reflection of what we really are.
When we decide to turn from moonlight to sunlight

To begin with, each of the sentence fragments with which she begins her definitions of the "stages," is a word for word lift from this Wikipedia post on the Magnum Opus – Great Work – of Alchemy. The little numbers in brackets, in the Wikipedia posts correspond to footnotes, because Wikipedia, for all its faults, cites its sources.

... It originally had four stages:[1][2]
  • nigredo, a blackening or melanosis
  • albedo, a whitening or leucosis
  • citrinitas, a yellowing or xanthosis
  • rubedo, a reddening, purpling, or iosis

Here is the source text for the definition of Nigredo. 

In alchemy, nigredo, or blackness, means putrefaction or decomposition. The alchemists believed that as a first step in the pathway to the philosopher's stone all alchemical ingredients had to be cleansed and cooked extensively to a uniform black matter.[1]

In analytical psychology, the term became a metaphor 'for the dark night of the soul, when an individual confronts the shadow within'.[2]

Here is the source text for the definition of Albedo.

In alchemy, albedo is one of the four major stages of the magnum opus; along with nigredo, citrinitas and rubedo. It is a Latinicized term meaning "whiteness". Following the chaos or massa confusa of the nigredo stage, the alchemist undertakes a purification in albedo, which is literally referred to as ablutio – the washing away of impurities. In this process, the subject is divided into two opposing principles to be later coagulated to form a unity of opposites or coincidentia oppositorum during rubedo.[1]

Titus Burckhardt interprets the albedo as the end of the lesser work, corresponding to a spiritualization of the body. The goal of this portion of the process is to regain the original purity and receptivity of the soul.[2] Psychologist Carl Jung equated the albedo with unconscious contrasexual soul images; the anima in men and animus in women. It is a phase where insight into shadow projections are realized, and inflated ego and unneeded conceptualizations are removed from the psyche.

Here is the source text for the definition of Citrinitas.

Citrinitas, sometimes referred to as xanthosis,[1] is a term given by alchemists to "yellowness." It was one of the four major stages of the alchemical magnum opus, and literally referred to "transmutation of silver into gold" or "yellowing of the lunar consciousness."[citation needed] In alchemical philosophy, citrinitas stood for the dawning of the "solar light" inherent in one's being, and that the reflective "lunar or soul light" was no longer necessary. The other three alchemical stages were nigredo (blackness), albedo (whiteness), and rubedo (redness).

Psychologist Carl Jung is credited with interpreting the pseudo-scientific alchemical process as analogous to modern-day psychoanalysis. In the Jungian archetypal schema, nigredo is the Shadow; albedo refers to the anima and animus (contrasexual soul images); citrinitas is the wise old man (or woman) archetype; and rubedo is the Self archetype which has achieved wholeness.

Finally, this is the source text for the definition of Rubedo.

Rubedo is a Latin word meaning "redness" that was adopted by alchemists to define the fourth and final major stage in their magnum opus. Both gold, and the philosopher's stone were associated with the color red, as rubedo signalled alchemical success, and the end of the great work.[1] Rubedo is also known by the Greek word, Iosis.

. . .

The symbols used in alchemical writing and art to represent this red stage can include blood, a phoenix, a rose, a crowned king, or a figure wearing red clothes. Countless sources mention a reddening process; the seventeenth dictum of the 12th century Turba Philosophorum is one example:
O Turba of Philosophers and disciples, now hast thou spoken about making into white, but it yet remains to treat concerning the reddening! Know, all ye seekers after this Art, that unless ye whiten, ye cannot make red, because the two natures are nothing other than red and white. Whiten, therefore, the red, and redden the white! [3]
. . .

In the framework of psychological development (especially with followers of Jungian psychology), these four alchemical steps are viewed as analogous to the process of attaining individuation. In an archetypal schema, rubedo would represent the Self archetype, and would be the culmination of the four stages, the merging of ego and Self.[4]

The Self manifests itself in "wholeness," a point in which a person discovers their true nature.

What is arguably more troubling than teal's obvious plagiarism of Wikipedia as a source on Alchemy, is that Wikipedia's material is more informative and better developed. It also offers references to source material, for further study.

Aside from the blatant ethical violation that is plagiarism, not providing references disempowers readers. This is and always has been my larger problem with teal. By not citing her sources, she positions herself as the cosmic answer lady. She closes the loop. When you refer the reader to other sources, you offer them the opportunity to read and evaluate those sources and expand their own learning. But, teal has a lot of her followers convinced that she is an authority on Alchemy and other spiritual disciplines, as if she never needed to read any of it. This encourages dependency. Anything you'd ever want to know about anything at all: just "Ask Teal."

No thanks. I can read Wikipedia for myself.

This post has 20 paragraphs and 1 poem of 4 stanzas, so we'll call that 24 paragraphs. Out of that, roughly 7 1/2 paragraphs were not directly traceable to older material, some of which was directly traceable to Wikipedia. Some of that new text is transitions in and out of the previously published material. In other words, a little over a quarter of this post is actually new.

So, what do we learn in those seven paragraphs? That teal is afraid, therefore everyone is afraid. That she went for a run in a sports bra and shorts and has the photographic evidence to prove it. That she's a victim who is being "scapegoated" and has been since childhood. That, for some strange reason, being a homewrecker has earned her some hostility and that this is mystifying to her. Basically, this post boils down to self-pity, self-plagiarism, and some plagiarized Wikipedia stuff about Alchemy.

I know I'm looking forward to teal's "energy diagnosis" of Paris. My husband suspects the "dominant negative vibration" will be something like "booming." My "energy diagnosis" of the smattering of new material in this post, though, is fear and victimhood. If I were a law of attraction person, I'd say it's not surprising that she was "a match" to multiple coordinated terrorist attacks. Her explanation of the timing is a little different, though.

 photo tealtribetoureiffel_zpsqs0bw9j4.png

Yes, she and her tribe are there to be beacons of light in this difficult time. It's funny how the mass murder by that poor, unfairly maligned boy Elliott Rodger was the reason she didn't move to Santa Barbara, but terrorist attacks in Paris are the reason she did go there. Well, either way, now that she's coordinating these "high frequency" sit-ins, I look forward to hearing about her taking the tribe into Syria.

In the meanwhile, if I want to hear about depression and Alchemy, I'll just watch Strindberg and Helium.

Update: Spiritually Bypassing Citations (12/19/15)

A comment from blairgilbert on this post tipped me to another instance of blatant plagiarism in teal's body of work. She noted word for word pilfering, in the Ask Teal video called "Spiritual Bypassing," from a Collective-Evolution post on the topic, written by Vanessa Petronelli.

The first thing I notice, in looking at Petronelli's article, is that she properly attributes the term "spiritual bypassing" to psychologist John Welwood. Surprising no one, teal does not.

I took a look at the article version of teal's spiritual bypassing video and strongly suspected that still more of it was plagiarized from sources in addition to the Collective-Evolution article. My husband and I did a bit more digging. We found that there were phrases and even entire blocks of text that could be traced to other sources. Some is paraphrased. Some is lifted verbatim.

As I did above, I will attempt to illustrate this using green highlights for identical words and phrases and rose for obvious paraphrasing. I am doing this by hand, so I'm sure I'm missing a lot. I shudder to think what would happen if these documents were compared using plagiarism detection software.

In her comment, blairgilbert identified two glaring examples of plagiarism from the Collective-Evolution article in the video.

Starting at the 13:25 mark, she states nearly word for word the author's third tip to avoid spiritual bypassing (near the end of the article).

And beginning at 15:00, it's glaringly obvious that she just re-phrased the author's ideas presented in tip number 1.

To do this analysis, I used the article version, which has roughly identical text to the video, and pulled out the grafs that correspond to the 13:25 and 15:00 marks. I also found another graf that strongly resembles tip number 2 from the CE article.

Text from teal's article:

In order to avoid the trap of spiritual bypassing, we need to apply what we learn to our life. Spiritual and Self help information is relatively abstract. Attending workshops, talks, reading books, going to yoga and meditation classes, etc. are good tools. However, tools are of no use if they aren’t used. Take action by applying what you are learning from these modalities consistently. Integrate them into your life daily.  If these ideas remain abstract and merely intellectualized, they aren’t going to help you to create long lasting and permanent change.

Similar text from CE article:

Here are some other Tips to Avoid Spiritual Bypassing:

1) Spiritual and Self-Developmental information is abstract. Attending seminars, workshops, reading books, going to yoga and meditation classes, etc. are fantastic tools, however, the most important thing you need to ask yourself is if you are taking action and applying what you are learning from these modalities consistently, by integrating it into your life daily. If it remains abstract and is simply intellectualized it really isn’t going to help you to create long lasting and permanent change.

Text from teal's article:

If we are to avoid the trap of bypassing, we need to let go of the idea that something must be terribly, “wrong,” or dysfunctional about us if we have problems of negative beliefs or negative feelings or negative thoughts. Everyone has personal, “struggles,” to work through. I mean EVERYONE. When we judge our problems or feelings or negative-ness as wrong, we suddenly have a motive for spiritual bypassing. We make where we are “not ok”. We want to be good and right but we can only achieve that goodness or rightness by being inauthentic. We put on a false façade because of it.

Similar text from CE article:

2) Many people believe that something must be terribly, “wrong,” or dysfunctional in their lives to see a Life Coach, Therapist, Counselor or Healer. This is absolutely FALSE. Everyone has personal,  “stuff,” to work through. When you see a professional you move into a vulnerable state of expression and opening; something you cannot always do alone or with friends or family members. These professionals are objective and are invested in only seeing you thrive and grow beyond your limitations and boundaries in a safe setting. They can offer you a different perspective as to what is going on inside of you. They will also hold you accountable to be sure that you are doing the work and making progress in between sessions that create a lasting impact on your life.

Text from teal's article:

In order to avoid the trap of spiritual bypassing, we need to be brave enough to admit to how we feel, what we want and don’t want, what we like and don’t like. We need to be willing to risk admitting to where we are and who we are, even if we think that where we are and who we are isn’t good or ok. If we want to avoid the pitfall of spiritual bypassing, we must express and allow our emotions, wounds, traumas and pain to surface healthily and with compassion.

Similar text from CE article:

3)Express and allow your emotions, wounds, traumas and pain to surface healthily and with love. Let go of the fear, judgment and suppressing of emotions. We often turn to things outside of ourselves to cope with our internal pain and suffering. Examples include addictions to food, drink, drugs, shopping, sex, work, focusing on others and diverting attention away from yourself etc.  Make peace with being uncomfortable. If you are numbing yourself inside out this energy lingers and creates a breeding ground for other issues to arise and manifest. Get down to the root of your problems as they will not go away on their own.

That is some, but probably not all, of the direct lifting from the Collective-Evolution article. What she did not take from that article was the clear reference to the psychologist who originated the term "spiritual bypassing," John Welwood. This did not stop Welwood's ideas from showing up in teal's article, word for word.

The similarity between teal's text and this interview with John Welwood entitled Human Nature, Buddha Nature: On Spiritual Bypassing, Relationship and the Dharma is hard to miss.

Text from teal's article:

Spiritual bypassing also leads to a one-sided form of spirituality where one aspect of life is elevated at the expense of its opposite. For example, objective truth (being valued more) is used to invalidate subjective truth. Non-physical is valued over form, 5d is valued and 3d is devalued. Transcendence is valued over physical embodiment, and detachment is valued over feeling. This behavior of valuing one side of polarity over the other gives rise to extremely damaging experiences. For example, one might, try to practice emotional detachment from others by suppressing one’s need for love and becoming independently self loving, but this only drives the need to be loved by others underground, so that it often becomes unconsciously acted out in covert and manipulative ways instead.

Similar text from Welwood's interview:

Trying to move beyond our psychological and emotional issues by sidestepping them is dangerous. It sets up a debilitating split between the buddha and the human within us. And it leads to a conceptual, one-sided kind of spirituality where one pole of life is elevated at the expense of its opposite: Absolute truth is favored over relative truth, the impersonal over the personal, emptiness over form, transcendence over embodiment, and detachment over feeling. One might, for example, try to practice nonattachment by dismissing one’s need for love, but this only drives the need underground, so that it often becomes unconsciously acted out in covert and possibly harmful ways instead.

Text from teal's article:

Being a good spiritual person can become a substitute identity that covers up and defends against an underlying deficient identity. The spiritual idea we have of ourselves is used to whitewash over the truth of our true concept of ourselves, which is that we feel badly about ourselves. We feel that we are not good enough. We feel that we are innately Bad. Then, although we may be practicing diligently, our spiritual practice can be used in the service of denial and defense. And when spiritual practice is used to bypass our real-life human issues, our spirituality becomes compartmentalized.

Similar text from Welwood's interview:

Being a good spiritual practitioner can become what I call a compensatory identity that covers up and defends against an underlying deficient identity, where we feel badly about ourselves, not good enough, or basically lacking. Then, although we may be practicing diligently, our spiritual practice can be used in the service of denial and defense. And when spiritual practice is used to bypass our real-life human issues, it becomes compartmentalized in a separate zone of our life, and remains unintegrated with our overall functioning.

We also found a quote from Robert Agustus Masters on Facebook, which appears nearly word for word in teal's article. I ran down the quote and found this article, in which Agustus also clearly references John Welwood as the man who identified the problem of spiritual bypassing. Of course, teal references neither Masters, nor Welwood.

Text from teal's article:

Some examples of spiritual bypassing include anger-phobia, exaggerated detachment, emotional numbing and repression, blind or overly tolerant compassion, weak or too porous boundaries, using cognitive reasoning to escape emotional feelings. Debilitating judgment about one's negativity or shadow side, devaluation of the personal relative to the spiritual, avoidance of physical day to day life, delusions of having arrived at a higher level of being and my personal least favorite, overemphasis of and attachment to the positive to the degree that there is a high level of resistance to anything negative.

Similar text Robert Agustus Masters:

Spiritual bypassing is a very persistent shadow of spirituality, manifesting in many forms, often without being acknowledged as such. Aspects of spiritual bypassing include exaggerated detachment, emotional numbing and repression, overemphasis on the positive, anger-phobia, blind or overly tolerant compassion, weak or too porous boundaries, lopsided development (cognitive intelligence often being far ahead of emotional and moral intelligence), debilitating judgment about one's negativity or shadow side, devaluation of the personal relative to the spiritual, and delusions of having arrived at a higher level of being.

Looking at this sea of green, it's hard to argue that teal did not plagiarize from all three of these articles. Worse, she has not only failed to cite her sources, she has failed to cite THE source of the term with which she's entitled her article and Ask Teal video. It's blatant theft of Welwood's intellectual property. Yes, "spiritual bypassing" is a concept that is currently proliferating throughout new agedom. I'm glad of it. It's a welcome relief from the willful denial espoused by The Secret and other LOA material. I'm sure many people who refer to the concept don't know its origins. But, I don't see how teal could possibly have missed this important piece of information, when she so obviously read and borrowed extensively from works in which he is clearly named.

Once again, teal has positioned herself as the cosmic answer lady, spouting information she "just knows." And, once again, these ideas have very human sources that are only a google search away.

Update: How Many Cheneys on the Cooks Source Scale is This? (2/11/16)

 photo cheneysoncookssource_wheaton_zpscve6nec6.png

*Heavy Sigh*

Is it that she can't learn or she won't learn?

In my previous update, I demonstrated, with careful highlighting, teal's word-for-word lifts on the issue of spiritual bypassing. Despite quoting him extensively, she never even referenced the psychologist who coined the term "spiritual bypassing," John Welwood. Now, she's self-plagiarized the article in which she plagiarized Welwood and others who have written on the topic. If you were holding out hope that she's avoided carrying over those blatantly lifted phrasings and ideas, or finally acknowledged her sources, you will be disappointed.

It's even more distressing when you consider that this post is clean and grammatically coherent enough to indicate that it was copy-edited. Her copy editor really doesn't know that this is blatant, obvious plagiarism?! There are some other very interesting slips, like this one:

So for the time being, I have been silent about it for the sake of evading even more conflict.

Most of us avoid unpleasantness. She evades it.  To evade almost always involves some form of trickery and deception – very telling use of language, I think.

Examples of teal's plagiarism and self-plagiarism are too numerous to count and document. It would be a full-time job. She rarely writes a post that isn't made up of something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue – a knack that may serve her as she prepares for her fourth wedding, but does not befit a published author.

She can't, for instance, resist lifting facts from Wikipedia, without citation, as in her recent post on Sydney, Australia.

Between 1788 and 1868 over one hundred and sixty thousand convicts were transported here to various penile colonies by the British government.  One could say that for a time, Great Britain’s policy for preventing prison overcrowding and dealing with their criminals was to ship them to Australia.  Due to the continent’s isolation in the middle of the sea, it was considered to be an ideal place to banish them to.  They say only 20 percent of the population here are the decedents of convicts.  But that figure surprises me given the social style of the average Australian.  In my opinion, the convict era did shape the national character of this area immensely.

Here is Wikipedia's version:

Between 1788 and 1868, approximately 162,000 convicts were transported to the various Australian penal colonies by the British government.[1]

The British government began transporting criminals to overseas colonies in the 17th century. When transportation to the American colonies declined with the move towards American independence in the 1770s, an alternative site was needed to avoid further overcrowding of British prisons and hulks. In 1770, James Cook charted and claimed possession of the east coast of Australia for Britain. Due to the continent's isolation, it was considered ideal for a penal colony, and in 1787 the First Fleet of eleven convict ships set sail for Botany Bay, arriving on 20 January 1788 to found Sydney, the first European settlement in Australia. Other penal colonies were later established in Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania), Queensland and Western Australia. Penal transportation to Australia peaked in the 1830s and dropped off significantly in the following decade. The last convict ship arrived in Western Australia on 10 January 1868.

Many of the convicts were transported for petty crimes; others were political prisoners. More serious crimes, such as rape and murder, were not transportable offences. After their prison terms were served most stayed in Australia and joined the other settlers, with some rising to prominent positions in Australian society. Approximately 20% of modern Australians are descended from transported convicts. Once deemed the "convict stain", it is now considered by many Australians to be a cause for celebration to have a convict in one's lineage. The extent to which the convict era has shaped Australia's national character has been studied by many writers and historians.[2]

Whether she's misspelled penal as penile to try to throw people off, or because she doesn't know the difference between a penis and a prison, is anybody's guess. Equally confusing is her misspelling of descendants as decedents, aka., dead people. Some of this reads like a high schooler's attempt to camouflage plagiarism, with obvious weasel phrases like "one could say" and "in my opinion." Really? "One could say" that it was Great Britain's policy to use Australia as a penal colony? Sure, in the same sense that "one could say" the earth orbits the sun. It's not an opinion! It's an undisputed fact!!!

While in New Zealand, she penned one of her bizarre energy diagnoses. Auckland, it seems, suffers from "inertia," but it also has the virtue of "repose," which is kind of like inertia but calmer. But, teal has the prescription for their stuck underwaterness. She's self-plagiarized the bulk of a her previous article "Feeling Lost and Ten Steps to Becoming Found." One assumes she doesn't think those poor, inert Kiwis can find the original article... or the blog post she also self-plagiarized it into only last November. The post is also interesting for this subconscious reveal:

I went after areas of avoidance and blind spots within the participants like a predator during this workshop. [emphasis added]

Since her return from those lands down under, she's been venting up a storm on her blog. Her most recent post is all about her uterus and contains helpful gynecology graphics, so we know what that is. I'll paraphrase and save readers the trouble:

Ale is off to California to fight for custody of his children. I feel abandoned. Ale should put a baby in me and forget about those OTHER children that he had with that bitch wife who says mean things about me just because I stole her husband.

That's the gist and my summary has the added benefit of not containing plagiarized material from the Mayo Clinic's website. It seems that teal suffers from endometriosis, a painful condition to be sure. This she attributes to her alienation from her own womb. In yet another case of shadow projection, she manages to blame this on Planned Parenthood.

They tried to frighten the girls off of sex by traumatizing us about pregnancy and birth.

Because they should, what, encourage teen pregnancy???

She describes endometriosis thusly:

With endometriosis, the tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus begins to grow outside the uterusDisplaced endometrial tissue continues to act as it normally would. It thickens, breaks down and bleeds with each menstrual cycle. Because this displaced tissue and blood has no way to exit your body, it becomes trapped. When endometriosis involves the ovaries, cysts called endometriomas may form. Surrounding tissue becomes irritated, eventually developing scar tissue and adhesions, which is abnormal tissue that binds organs together, sometimes resulting in a frozen pelvis.  It is infamous for the pain it causes, especially during menstruation and also for the fact that it causes infertility.

The thing is, the Mayo Clinic describes it in strikingly similar terms:

Endometriosis (en-doe-me-tree-O-sis) is an often painful disorder in which tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus — the endometrium — grows outside your uterus (endometrial implant). Endometriosis most commonly involves your ovaries, bowel or the tissue lining your pelvis. Rarely, endometrial tissue may spread beyond your pelvic region.

In endometriosis, displaced endometrial tissue continues to act as it normally would — it thickens, breaks down and bleeds with each menstrual cycle. Because this displaced tissue has no way to exit your body, it becomes trapped. When endometriosis involves the ovaries, cysts called endometriomas may form. Surrounding tissue can become irritated, eventually developing scar tissue and adhesions abnormal tissue that binds organs together.

Endometriosis can cause painsometimes severeespecially during your period. Fertility problems also may develop. Fortunately, effective treatments are available.

So, as you can see, her post on endometriosis is hemorrhaging the green highlights of word-for-word plagiarism.

It's actually kind of incredible how much recycled verbiage teal can generate out of a handful of unattributed sources. For instance, from one paper, which can be found on the website for SOAS University of London, she has produced a number of posts. The article "Stress Management Practical Strategies" is a word document, but can be read here, as well.

Material from that page can be found word for word in teal's article on stress. For some reason her list of 10 items are all number 1, so it makes for strange reading. By the time she's recycled it into blog posts here and here, she's corrected that problem, but other than that, it's changed little. Entire blocks of text have made their way from that source document to teal's posts, with few changes.

Writes teal:

How you think has a profound effect on your emotional and physical well-being. Each time you think a negative thought about yourself or your life, your body reacts as if it were in the throes of a tension-filled situation. If you think positive thoughts about yourself and your life, your body will react by releasing chemicals that make you feel good. Work to eliminate words such as "always," "never," "should," and "must" from your vocabulary. These definitive statements are very conducive to thoughts which are self-defeating and create stress.

From the SOAS article:

How you think can have a profound effect on your emotional and physical wellbeing. Each time you think a negative thought about yourself, your body reacts as if it were in the throes of a tension-filled situation. If you see good things about yourself, you are more likely to feel good; the reverse is also true. Eliminate words such as "always," "never," "should," and "must." These are significant marks of self-defeating thoughts.

Here's a helpful subsection from teal on unhealthy ways of relieving stress, which is offered in all three of those posts:

Do you practice coping strategies which temporarily reduce stress but cause more damage in the long run? Such as:
  • Smoking
  • Drinking
  • Overeating or under eating
  • Trying to avoid stressors by spending hours in front of the TV or computer
  • Withdrawing from friends, family, and activities
  • Using pills or drugs to relax
  • Escaping by sleeping too much
  • Procrastinating
  • Filling up every minute of the day with things to do so as to avoid facing problems Or
  • Taking out your stress on others (lashing out, angry outbursts, physical violence)

Here's what it says in the article from SOAS:

These coping strategies may temporarily reduce stress, but they cause more damage in the long run:
  • Smoking
  • Drinking too much
  • Overeating or undereating
  • Zoning out for hours in front of the TV or computer
  • Withdrawing from friends, family, and activities
  • Using prescription pills or drugs to relax
  • Sleeping too much
  • Procrastinating
  • Filling up every minute of the day to avoid facing problems
  • Taking out your stress on others (lashing out, angry outbursts, physical violence)

Most of teal's recommendations on stress relief come from that page. She's just jumbled up the order and priority a bit. And, her list of healthy relaxation strategies also bears a striking resemblance to the SOAS article.

1. Make time for fun and relaxation by finding healthy ways to relax and recharge, and give yourself permission to do so.

. . .

  • Call a good friend
  • Spend time outside
  • Take a bath
  • Sweat out tension with a good workout
  • Write in a journal
  • Savor a warm cup of tea
  • Make yourself one of your comfort foods
  • Spend time with a pet (pets have been shown to dramatically reduce stress)
  • Get a massage
  • Play a game
  • Read a book
  • Drive to a place with an amazing view
  • Listen to music
  • Watch a comedy movie
  • Connect with others. Spend time with positive people who enhance your life. A strong support system will buffer you from the negative effects of stress.

Here's the SOAS list:

Stress management strategy 5: Make time for relaxation

Beyond a take-charge approach and a positive attitude, you can reduce stress in your life by nurturing yourself. If you regularly make time for fun and relaxation, you’ll be in a better place to handle life’s stressors when they inevitably come.

Healthy ways to relax and recharge

  • Go for a walk.
  • Spend time in nature/hug a tree.
  • Call a good friend.
  • Sweat out tension with a good workout.
  • Write in your journal.
  • Take a long bath.
  • Light scented candles.
  • Practice Yoga/meditate
  • Savour a hot drink.
  • Play with a pet.
  • Work in your garden.
  • Get a massage.
  • Curl up with a good book.
  • Listen to music and dance.
  • Watch a comedy.

I'm not really sure why teal left yoga off her version of that list, because she loves to write about yoga... and to steal text from actual authorities on the topic. For instance, she recently wrote about a yoga retreat at Sagrada Wellness.

Yoga practice will stimulate conscious and unconscious responses in every individual. Your body’s responses to yoga, whether those responses are sensations, emotions, moods, or images, are the first sign that something important is going on within us. Yoga meets the psyche and emotional center in the place where we feel reactive to the yoga. Every muscle has its own associated psychological/emotional function.  A health practitioner, like myself is concerned with the responsiveness of a muscle.  And a muscle’s responsiveness in yoga is mostly related to its state of elasticity.  If the psychological/emotional function associated with a specific muscle was abandoned early or was not learned at all, the muscle will be under-responsive. A person will usually have a lack of aliveness and sensory awareness in this area of the body. Psychologically there may be a sense of numbness or of something missing or of not knowing how to do something. In yoga, when we stress the under-responsive muscle by using it strongly, the psychological history related to this muscle will be triggered.

What's funny about that is how similar it sounds to this article by Joel Isaacs, PhD (see also here).

Interestingly, the somatic psychotherapy my colleagues and I now practice, called Bodynamics, deals every day with the particular psychological content held in each muscle. So we have a perspective important for the yoga community, while not at all being experts in the field of yoga. We know (as does every yoga teacher) that a yoga practice will stimulate conscious and unconscious responses in every individual. Our body’s responses to the stretching and stressing of yoga, whether sensations, emotions, moods, or even images, are the first sign that something or importance is going on for us. This is the place where yoga meets the psyche, where mind and body can begin to integrate.

. . .

In a similar way to this example of the triceps and setting limits, every muscle has its own associated psychological function. Each one retains an imprint of the response to its related behavior. So our history is stored in our body and in our brain, and it can be accessed through the body. (In fact, the attitudes stored in the muscles can be measured manually by palpation, and a map made from which our history can be “read”.) In our daily life the historical responses may be stimulated when the muscle is either stretched or stressed (used strongly). In Bodynamics, we talk about a muscle’s responsiveness, which is related to its elasticity. If the psychological function expressed by the muscle has been given up early or was not learned, the muscle will be under-responsive. A person will usually have a lack of liveliness and sensory awareness in this area. Psychologically there may be a sense in related situations of something missing, of not knowing how to do something. In this case, when we stress the muscle by using it strongly, the psychological history is likely to be stimulated.

It goes on. Here is some more of teal's text:

If the disruption occurred later in the developmental period when a muscle was being imprinted, it will be over-responsive instead of under responsive.  A person will usually have a sense that they lack flexibility, hold back, or respond in a rigid way relative to these muscle groups. For an over-responsive muscle, the trauma associated with this muscle will be triggered when it is stretched. Conversely, either stressing an over-responsive muscle or stretching an under-responsive one will tend to suppress the psychological and emotional content associated with that muscle.

In my opinion, the psychological and emotional content contained in the muscles will not change simply by stretching or strengthening the muscle. You must first work-through the particular psychological/emotional issue.  But that being said, working from both the direction of body and mind is ideal.  Working through a psychological/emotional issue frees the associated muscle from having to “hold” that trauma. This leads to more freedom of movement and more flexibility on a mental, physical and emotional level.

And this is from Doctor Isaacs's article:

On the other hand, if the disruption occurred later in the developmental period when that muscle was being imprinted, it will be over-responsive. A person will usually sense some energy in these muscles, and psychologically they may have a sense that in related situations they lack flexibility, hold back, or feel compelled to respond in a rigid way. For an over-responsive muscle, the history will be stimulated when it is stretched. Conversely, stressing an over-responsive muscle (or stretching an under-responsive one) will tend to suppress the psychological content.

For better or worse, the psychological attitudes contained in the muscles will not generally be changed simply by stretching, or toning, or strengthening them. You must first work-through the particular psychological issue and make some changes in your behavior. Working through a psychological issue frees the associated muscle from having to “hold” psychological history. This leads to more freedom of movement and more psychological flexibility. Then, the muscles responsiveness will change towards neutral, and a corresponding body and psychological resource can be developed. When a resource is established in our body we tend to act spontaneously in our best interest, rather than having to think through each situation. At a secondary level, other nearby muscles that had been recruited to compensate also become freer, and those abilities are somewhat more accessible.

The best tweak in her entire post is where she changed Isaacs's "for better or worse" to "in my opinion." It's not her opinion. It's his.

I'll stop there, not because the rest of her piece is original, but because it's exhausting and overwhelming keeping up with the scope of her intellectual theft. I feel pretty comfortable, at this point, saying that teal is a serial plagiarist and that she's treating the internet like a smorgasbord of ideas to claim as her own.

What original concepts does she bring to the mix? Predation, evasion, and dog whistles to a following so devoted they'd give their lives.

They come to me now from all corners of the globe.  And I can genuinely say that I have officially gone from a person who had absolutely no one; a person who was drowning in the kind of isolation that sucks breath from your lungs, to a person who has people that are so close to me that they will live and die by my side.

Update: Addicted to Plagiarism (2/24/16)

It's been a strange couple of weeks on planet teal. She's been taking a lot heat for both her professional and all too public private life. And, predictably, she's gone straight for the pity play. She is being "slandered," "attacked," and "scapegoated," says she. She is responsible for none of it, only a "match" to it, because she's always been slandered, attacked, and scapegoated. It's a funny interpretation of the "law of attraction" that somehow always reduces to teal = victim.

The "slander" comes in the form of (clutch the pearls!) an accusation of plagiarism. Ma Nithya Swarupapriyananda, whose further comments can be found on this page, posted a video about teal's "Completion Process" and its curious resemblance to teachings by her guru, Nithyananda. But, for all teal's complaints about this accusation, she has yet to directly address the charge in any of her dog whistles blog posts.

She's far more upset, she says, by the ongoing tumult in her romantic life. Hot on the heels of her pained admission that Ale has lost almost all custody rights, due to his relationship with her "dangerous cult leader" self, she has announced the date of their pending nuptials. But, this is where things got really strange.

An observant reader noticed that the tags for her wedding announcement blog post included the word "funeral," which appears nowhere in the text. In fact the url for the post is, despite its title being "The Purity of Union." This clever reader found the original post in google cache and found that it's been through a title change and the loss of about half of its content. The deleted content, as it turns out, is a lot of self-plagiarized drivel. It originally appeared here and here. It's already been recycled into an older blog post here. I've read it. Leave it to teal to turn the lovely idea of a fire ceremony for fantasies about one's past into something morbid.

So, did teal think better of the simply horrible idea of attaching all that death imagery to her pending nuptials? Four Weddings and a Funeral was a cute movie, but this is, in fact, her fourth marriage. Talking about corpses, coffins, and funeral pyres might not read as her putting her best foot forward. Or, is it possible, I wondered, that she's begun to realize that plagiarism of either herself or other, unwitting writers isn't exactly putting her best foot forward, either. Could she actually be starting to understand this?


The very next day an even stranger blog post appeared and it is as unoriginal as it is bad. How ironic, considering that it purports to be a kind of grand confession. She's announced to all and sundry that she's a sex and love addict, to which all and sundry replied, this is news how?

So, what prompted this bout of "honesty?" I appears that critics of her plagiarism and Ale's wife's attorneys aren't the only people giving her flak. I first became aware of the latest teal drama when a friend of mine noticed that her Facebook friend list was down by over 300, um, friends. Facebook only allows 5,000 friends and teal is always around that maximum, only bestowing her coveted friendship on the most worthy, when there's the occasional opening. She doesn't pick them herself. She has people for that. They choose the appropriate energetic matches from her many waiting followers. And so I expect they did the other day, only this time the openings were in the hundreds.


What caused this sudden purge? Another friend informed me that all hell broke loose on her the Facebook post of this picture and wedding announcement.

Most of the negative comments were cleaned up, along with her friend list, but they missed a few.

 photo keepinthename_zpsk6hpptdm.png

In the post, teal vents about negative comments she's been getting about her pending nuptials.

I have been avoiding the comments underneath my posts about this upcoming wedding to Ale because of how cruel some people have been with their judgments about my love life and about marriage in general. Because of my willingness to be authentic about my personal life, as opposed to hide it like every other spiritual teacher, people cease to view me as a ‘teacher’ and begin to see me like an immature little sister who they have to advise...

She talks a good game about how she's come down off the "pedestal" by talking endlessly about her private life, but she hates when it actually interferes with her role as an authority figure.

The post reeks of damage control. And like all teal damage control, it includes both appeals to pity and a lot of attention on her body and sexuality. It's hard to take her sex addict "sobriety," seriously, when she starts the post off with a graphic, erotic poem and sexy, pouty photo of her younger self.

She doesn't explain how she's actually dealing with her addiction, except that she's already dismissed Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous.

I have to stay in check with the amount of influence I have in other people’s lives. For this reason, I regularly see various therapists. But I also found myself attending Love Addicts Anonymous last year. To be honest, I hated it. This is going to really invalidate people who believe in the AA approach to addiction recovery. But in my opinion, not only is the Love Addicts Anonymous curriculum completely wrong about how to accomplish recovery, it is a recipe for self hate. They do not teach attendees how to approach the inner void and loneliness. They simply prescribe forcing yourself to be single and attend the groups. From there, the solution they give you is to essentially pray for help from a higher power. Don’t even get me started on the AA curriculum. I shall save that for another day.

So, she's staying in check with her influence on other people, but thinks stating her opinion actually invalidates – renders invalid – not only Twelve Step programs, but the people who use them.  Somehow, she went to these meetings and failed understand the program completely. It's a ridiculously shallow interpretation. I'm not surprised she thinks it's a "recipe for self hate," though. These are the steps.

The Twelve Steps of S.L.A.A.

  1. We admitted we were powerless over sex and love addiction - that our lives had become unmanageable.
  2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
  3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood God.
  4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
  5. Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
  6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
  7. Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings.
  8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
  9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
  10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
  11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with a Power greater than ourselves, praying only for knowledge of God's will for us and the power to carry that out.
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these
  13. steps, we tried to carry this message to sex and love addicts and to practice these principles in all areas of our lives.

I expect steps 4, 5, 8, 9, 10 would be particularly challenging for teal, because they're all about taking personal responsibility. They won't allow you to just keep blaming your parents, Mormon Satanists, or anyone else. It's more like shadow work than anything teal teaches, because what she teaches is just more shadow projection.

Her rejection of SLAA, though, did not cause her to reject the text from a rehab that works with the Twelve Step model.

Love addiction can be associated with any of the following patterns:
  • Difficulty sustaining relationships after the initial excitement wears off
  • Constantly searching for a newer, better relationship
  • Feeling unhappy or worthless when alone but scared or dissatisfied when in a relationship
  • Repeatedly attracting troubled or emotionally unavailable partners
  • Confusing sex and romance for real love
  • Escaping feelings of loneliness or unhappiness through sex or relationships
  • Having multiple affairs
  • Serial dating
  • Having anonymous or unprotected sex
  • Falling “in love” with strangers
  • Trading sex for love, affection, money or power
  • Using any means necessary to attract or hold onto a love interest
  • Inability to set appropriate boundaries
  • Withdrawing from friends, family, career or interests to focus on a romantic relationship

. . .

  • Unsuccessfully trying to stay single for a certain period of time
  • Inability to stop seeing or dating a specific person even with the knowledge that it is destructive

. . .

  • Overlooking a partner’s faults to perpetuate the fantasy

In her post, teal has simply changed the bullet points to sentence fragments, tweaked a few words and riffed a bit with some doggerel in the middle of the graf.

Attachment addiction (love addiction) tends to show up in the following patterns: Difficulty sustaining relationships after the initial obsessive phase wanesConstantly searching for a better relationshipFeeling worthless and suicidal when alone but terrified and dissatisfied when in a relationship. Repeatedly attracting troubled, avoidant or emotionally unavailable partnersConfusing sex and romance for real conscious and committed loveInvolvement with a fantasy of who someone could be, rather than involvement with the reality of who someone actually is, which leads to perpetual relationships with incompatible partners.  Premature commitment usually in the form of impulsive decisions to increase the level of bonding such as moving in together, getting married and having children.  The inability to take a relationship slowly because of the intensity of bonding, immediacy of bonding, depth of intimacy and desperate fear of abandonment.  Serial dating or serial monogamy.  Potential affairsAnonymous and unsafe sexUsing sex, affection and sensual charm as a currency exchange for protection, power or money.  The inability to set healthy and appropriate boundariesWithdrawing from all other relationships when focused on ‘the one’ primary attachment relationship (partner) in their life.  And the inability to be single.

She does refer to a viral Huffington Post article on addiction, and deserves some credit for doing so. But, it doesn't excuse her, once again, plagiarizing swaths of text from an un-named source. Nor does it excuse the self-plagiarism of this article, which also appears in this very long post.

I strongly suspect that we've only touched the surface of teal's pattern of theft. Rumors about her "Completion Process" have been swirling for a while, and Nithyananda is not the only possible source that has been suggested. Unless I miss my guess, this is another of these horrible Frankenstein's monsters she creates, stitching together random bits of material from better thinkers.

Not only is teal bereft of original ideas, she's a horrible, horrible writer. She needs to plagiarize, because left to her own devices, she comes up with nonsensical verbiage like this.

The world that is internal to the relationship is raw yet pristine in its paragon.

How are raw and pristine opposites? And, what, in the name of all that is holy, does she think "paragon" means? Just wrong, wrong, wrong.

Paragon applies to someone who is a model of perfection in some quality or trait. We link paragon with other words that follow it, such as "paragon of virtue" or "paragon of patience."

A paragon means someone or something that is the very best. The English noun paragon comes from the Italian word paragone, which is a touchstone, a black stone that is used to tell the quality of gold. You rub the gold on the touchstone and you can find out how good the gold is. You are hoping that it is the paragon of "goldness."

She's just a horrible writer, who uses the thesaurus like an oracle, and drops big words she barely understands into weird contexts and tortured syntax. What she does to the English language should be illegal. What she does with other people's ideas already is.

Update: Plagiarizing Hay House (9/8/17)

In what may be her most brazen theft of intellectual property yet, teal plagiarized a facebook post from her own publisher. The plagiarized text is an obituary of Louise Hay, posted on the day of her passing. Once again, it's almost word for word. I don't know what bothers me more, that she's lifted entire paragraphs, or her weak attempts to obscure the fact that she's lifted entire paragraphs. And what's worse, after starting out with what looks like one of her classic attempts to tweak enough words and phrases to throw readers off the trail, it's like she just got bored and gave up. She stopped even trying to modify the text. She's removed things like the quote from Reid Tracy, and paraphrased the content in her introduction. She's wedged in some self-referential bits. But entire swathes of text are unchanged.

The good folks at Question Teal have already done the hard work of highlighting word for word replication, so I'm just going to post their image.

Click Image to Expand

She posted this text in two places that I'm aware of, on her personal Facebook page and on the Spiritual Catalyst page, which I think even people without Facebook membership can view. But just in case, I'm posting screenshots of the entire post. As you can see, there is no credit given to the Hay House page from which the text was taken.

Question Teal also points out that she got lots of praise for  her "heartfelt" words, despite the fact that they were neither heartfelt nor hers.

Click Image to Expand

Her own thoughts were not so much heartfelt as critical, distancing, uncompassionate, and self-referential.

The video is here, but it appears to be cut off. Who knows what she's said about Hay behind the paywall? (Because now you have to pay to hear her bitch. She's a spiritual teacher, you know.) Listen to that, or read the text above, and it becomes all the more clear why she plagiarizes so much. Left to her own devices, she doesn't make a lick of sense. Who in the hell was depending on Louise Hay, at this point? She was 90 years old! She was retired. I would hope that Hay had been able to depend on other people, in her final years. And need I point out that there is absolutely nothing ironic about Hay House and teal being born in the same year? Aren't published authors supposed to know the meaning of common words and concepts?

So on the day of Louise Hay's passing, teal insulted her life's work and stole material from the publishing house she founded. She's really taken disrespect to a new level.

Comment Overflow: Page 1, Page 2, Page 3, Page 4, Page 5, Page 6, Page 7, Page 8


  1. Huh? did you say my name? What is you want this time?

  2. A Casual Conversation with Gary Bosse about Teal Swan

  3. "This week I went through a very powerful integration while using the process I invented".

    Is this the "completion" process - the one she trademarked? The one she's franchising? And she's just got round to using on herself again? this week?

  4. This is hilarious. Finally a celebrity after Blake wrote the text and suggested it to the forum. hahahahahaha.

  5. You guys need to see if you can get the police to investigate her over the suicide thing.

  6. After analyzing her newest manipulative pitch for seats at her newest wedding in July to the Tealers I figured that this is her main string on her follower group. She created a surreal online family which she tries to strengthen lately by making them interact at the beginning of each workshop. Now she is offering special tickets to her wedding to those who write probably the most glorifying dripping letters to her or promise her to bring all world wonders to her door step. Reward system seems to work well on her followers.

    Her followers have 2 things in common. They either perceive themselves as similar victims of life as Teal does or they got stuck in believing her story and wishing her well and are overall just very sensitive benevolent people with a touch of spirituality of all kinds. It helps to be a confused New Ager who needs some explanation of one who read the most books and articles on google. I observed the online activity on her instagram. Since Blake made the call to send her some love and follow daily Teal on instagram, the numbers went up in a time frame of 16 hours by 2000. Seeing the like numbers on her both FB pages , the responds on fb doesn't mirror the 2000 followers on instagram which just turned up. I have a friend who somehow has software to figure out if sb bought fans on instagram. I will try to get in touch with him and let Teal's instagram profile run through it. Will be interesting.

  7. Look at this body language. If Gicqueau could, he would eat her but Teal is closed and is just worried about getting a good picture for her followers to get more attention, praises and desire. hahahahahaha so transparent. Gicqueau is her newest story line. Gicqueau certainly looks like a love drunk puppy who even gives up on his kids like this. How bizarre.

    Here we see a few shots later. Ale is working hard to get her attention. Teal is modeling.

    you can tell me whatever you want but this woman is not desiring this man but needs a player, somebody for her high sex drive (her statement) , somebody so she isn't solo and some comfort with a big chunk of money and connections. Ale comes across as somebody who can take a lot of s!"§$%t and still smiles because he has the ride of his life. The way I see it is this. Ale is her best volunteer with a right of special services.

    This woman is playing with this man. This gesture though.

    It looks like "oh my dear Ale, I got you exactly where I want you to be and you have no idea and no, there will be no need to sign a contract before the weeding…that is low vibration Ale. If you don't trust me why do you want to marry me then? Let's do some shadow work on you….hmmmm… completion process I meant….hmmmm… integration process."

    Why does Teal always pick men with a very high female energy. Mark, Blake, Fallon, Sarbdep and now Ale. They are all very much into their female energy, very gentle, rather submissive in nature. I think Teal is a man with boobs and long hair and as LV pointed out, with a greener vagina. hahahaha which is shaped like a fox according to her. It always helps to strengthen the male fan base by talking about your own vagina, your sex drive and to flash the audience sometimes. No idea how people would consider her the greatest seductress. Every female on this planet knows that as soon as you show your flesh the majority of men get excited and excited men easily used for whatever.

    It just came into my mind. When she was writing this letter to doc and mentioned that she is the "unhealed Healer"; I guess this was her first thought of a business plan because all her activity and self created image fits under this umbrella. You can be weak and strong at the same time, helpless and authoritative if you find confused cyber people.

    My greatest wonderment is how a father can give up so easily on his kids. I don't understand it. What is going on with him. All he has to do is getting Teal tested by a psychologist to refute the claim of his ex wife because he obviously must be convinced that Teal is not crazy. Is mad love so mad that you don't even try this mad idea? I don't have children but every parent I ever talked to about his or her kids says the same: I would die for my kids and I would give up everything for them. They are my greatest love in life. I hope that he will try to get more time with his kids for his own sanity. It must be beyond hard but at the same time i so understand his ex wife's perspective. What a dilemma.

  8. Ale was born into a privileged family and is a dreamer. I imagine his mother bossed him around, and is submissive with women. His ex-wife seems to have worn the pants in the family and of course teal already has several leashes on him, or should I say, his wallet.

    He's already been part of a cult previously, and I know this because he mentioned it in a youtube video, so he's just drawn to escapism and submission. I used to feel sorry for him but now I see him as a willing fool, and I'm sorry to say but he deserves teal and all that she will bring into his life.

  9. "Many people think it would be fabulous to be in a romantic relationship with me. It is true that there are many ‘perks’ to the position and many things that I can offer that other people cannot."

    Because that's^ not egotistical at all.

    "Several people, most of them from Ale’s side, will not be attending this wedding because they are failing to question their own resistance and lend their energies in support of the union.  For me, this is heartbreaking.  I’m finding it very hard not to take it personally."

    How dare they not be in full support of your union! It's not like you or Ale did anything to create that resistance in them. Ale just chose you over his own children. No biggie.

    Also, I get that it's her personal blog so obviously it's written from her perspective and all, but my God it's always "me, me, me, I, I, I." Why is she never compelled to express any empathy for OTHERS? "I'm finding it very hard not to take it personally." In other words, her EGO is hurt because people she doesn't even know don't want to attend her wedding? Uhh, get over it and see things from someone else's POV for once! Imagine how Ale, who actually has a close relationship with these people, feels. I've never met a "spiritual teacher" who's so self-centered vs being all-centered. Girl can't even see beyond the end of her nose. :/

    Honestly, I do not understand how anyone can find Teal inspiring as a person, or her teachings, healing. I feel like she's a woman who's still a girl in many ways --she thrives on drama, is self-centered, arrogant, plays a victim to fulfill her need of love and attention, it's glaringly obvious that her ego is fed by the adoration of her "fans," she acts on a whim rather than seeing things from a higher perspective and doing what's best for all involved-- and she does all of this under the guise of "authenticity." It would be fine if this was just her life, but she's affecting her follower's lives by positioning herself as an expert spiritual teacher all the while contradicting herself and bending her teachings to conveniently fit whatever happens to be going on in her dramatic life at the moment. It's a serious injustice to her followers, especially those who hang on her every word. No wonder her "fans" never seem to make any progress. How can they, when their "guru" is just as lost and all over the place as them?

    She really should just drop this whole "spiritual teacher" schtick and just be a YouTube personality. The shitstorm that is her life is so much more interesting than her "spiritual teachings." There's not one thing she's "taught" that is original or that you can't already find online/in books. Not to mention, a lot of her material is just her repeating herself to the point that she (as pointed out by LaVaughn) self-plagiarizes her teachings by lazily copying and pasting entire blocks of text from blog post to blog post.

  10. HI Blake

    if you would be so kind and give this message to Teal? Thank you

    Dear Teal
    I read your blog My Raw Yes Pristine Paragon.

    I applaud you for your honesty and I still very much dislike your manipulation techniques which you applied plenty full. I know you don't adore Ale as a partner, your instagram history images give it all away. I just would like you to know that there is no need to marry a friend. Ale is your friend right now. He gives you full attention, warmth, understanding, submissive behavior to all your wishes and you feel great comfort. Why do you feel the need to marry a friend although you fully understand that he isn't your soulmate by your own definition? This is a healthy friendship but not a healthy love relationship and you might overlooked another aspect of your love addiction: your marriage addiction. Your fear of loosing Ale's warmth and attention towards you. Please look deeper into it.

  11. "I used to feel sorry for him but now I see him as a willing fool, and I'm sorry to say but he deserves teal and all that she will bring into his life."

    lueurviolette, I completely agree! Ugh, the woman is insufferable. Of course she'd rather play an innocent victim than take responsibility for their actions:

    "As you know from previous blogs, I have turned into the scapegoat for the situation Ale is struggling with relative to his previous life. Ale and I did not entertain the idea of going ahead with trying out a romantic relationship until well after we were both single and separated. Nevertheless, the fact that we knew each other for a couple of years while we were still in our previous relationships has stamped us with a scarlet letter in some people’s minds. He has been cast in the light of a man who followed his pecker to greener pastures, forsaking his ex wife and kids."

    Can she blame people for feeling this way? Has she forgotten that she shared the very personal letter Ale wrote to her over two years ago in which he confessed that he was in love with her and proclaimed his feelings of wanting to be the man that brings the Statue of Liberty and Eiffel Tower to her front yard? He wrote this letter to her when he was still married to his wife, when she wasn't even married to Sarbdeep yet. This wasn’t an innocent “friends to lovers” progression. Ale was obsessed, I mean, "in love" with her while he was still married, and as soon as she became available he desperately sought after her. How can she not understand why people feel the way they do? Married man confessing his love to another woman, I mean.

  12. "Since Blake made the call to send her some love and follow daily Teal on instagram, the numbers went up in a time frame of 16 hours by 2000. Seeing the like numbers on her both FB pages , the responds on fb doesn't mirror the 2000 followers on instagram which just turned up."

    rikitikitavi3, are you sure they went up by 2,000? I could've sworn she was at around 21.8k, now she's just at 22k. Doesn't that mean she just went up by 200? Of course I could be wrong about the 21.8k..

  13. you are right. My math sucks ;D 200 Thanks for calling me out in the nicest way.

  14. I couldn't agree more with you LaVaugh. I just read your newest update "Addicted to Plagiarism". My favorite sentence is this:

    ""…this is another of these horrible Frankenstein's monsters she creates, stitching together random bits of material from better thinkers."

    You nailed it.

  15. She writes: "It is very hard to feel ‘emotionally secure’ as my partner regardless of my actual level of devotion."

    Clarification; it is hard for anyone to feel secure as your partner because you're a pleasure seeker, who doesn't take personal responsibility, and doesn't understand commitment. In fact, I'm sorry to say but I doubt you're capable of love as well, only using people for pleasure, comfort or advancement. You don't know what compromise or sacrifice for another means, only when they have to do it for you. You're not relationship material, by your own choice. You're a pleasure seeker whose sole catch is your body, while it remains attractive and youthful. You only insist on marrying people for a house (Mark), European visa (Sarbdeep) and wealth (Ale).

    I have some astrology for teal and Ale's wedding, the month is good enough:

    Saturn conjunct teal's South Node applying due to retrograde motion = the planet of karma teams up with the point of karma in her chart. It's time to face some music.

    When Saturn goes direct it will oppose her Sun and Venus in the following months from the wedding: more karma to be dealt with in terms of ego expression and sense of self as well as relationships. People generally become depressed when Saturn opposes their Sun or Venus, it limits affections and self expression.

    But I saved the best for last, within the coming years: Pluto opposite Ascendant = a total collapse of relationships and self image caused by circumstances breaking all structures within these areas of life, forcing the person to face themselves and transform.

    It nauseates me that she calls herself a spiritual teacher. She may be a lot of things, but spiritual teacher she is not.

  16. rikitikitavi3, no prob! ;)


    Teal is becoming more and more of a parody of herself:

    "On the one hand, I was born straddling the dimensions. I have access to awareness and transcendental knowledge that most people have no access to."

    Lol. At this point, is there anyone left that believes her ridiculous delusions? I think even her minions are starting to see through her bullshit. How can they not?! They only have to look at her shitty life to know that she's not as evolved/special as she'd like them to believe. You would think that a being that has "access to awareness and transcendental knowledge that most people have no access to" would have incredible insights/wisdom/knowledge to offer, like say, IDK, Jesus or the Buddha. Instead, this bitch feeds her followers OTHER people's research/knowledge/insights with some of her drivel thrown in for good measure. This "access" she's referring to must be the Internet. Lol.

    It really boggles my mind how she a) plagiarizes b) is aware that many people are aware that she plagiarizes, and c) continues to plagiarize! Not only does she plagiarize, she also fails to give photo credits for the thousands of photos she uses in her videos and on her blog. This is all just so wrong on so many levels! Thank you, LaVaughn for documenting everything so well!

    I pray for the day that her career comes to an end. It'd be one thing if she was just doing this on her own and only affecting those around her, but she's dragging along thousands of poor fools with her. It's disgusting to observe, really. :/

    1. ETA:

      She didn't make the "100 most spiritually influential" list. Of course she didn't.. I just find it hilarious seeing as how she considers herself a celebrity and often refers to her fame/being famous in her blog posts. LMAO.

    2. I know, right?!

      She says she appeared in the magazine, but doesn't say where or in what context and it is very definitely NOT on that list.

      And that statement about her unusual access to transcendental knowledge, I'd have been shocked if she didn't say shit like that so frequently. It's audacious.

  17. Also, if you have access to her Facebook page, long, long thread about her Yoni Eggs. People have been sending me screenshots. What did I just say? When she's on the defensive, it's all teal's vagina all the time.

    Here's the instagram version.

    1. That way of deflecting attention from what is going on around her brings to mind a horrid visual. Some people flare their nostrils when angry/upset. And teal, well teal flares something else. That is maybe why she needs the yoni balls in the first place. Mystery solved.

  18. Seriously, yoni eggs. You called it lavaughn.
    All I got from her latest blog was,

    "I never fit in with my family because I'm so special - I modeled at a young age because I was so beautiful - I've always had partners upon partners because people think I'm so beautiful and special - people hate me because I'm so beautiful - people think I would be such a catch, have I mentioned how beautiful I am? "

    Christ on crutches. Beauty fades, what will she do when she's old and can't manipulate the whole world with her looks?

    1. Oh its going to be bad. I know someone who's only redeeming quality was her looks. She based her self-concept on the attention she could get by manipulating people around her and playing coy about it. She got older and the scowl lines have set into her face. She spends all her time in dive bars because it is the only place she can get that sort of validation anymore,and incidentally, the heavy drinking has aged her so much more in the last few years.

      She never learned how to be a good person or find value in herself outside of what she could get or make people think about her. She doesnt accept herself, so she presents a false image. Its a double edged sword because when people accept her, she eventually turns on them because they dont "really know her", or are somehow dishonest when they reassure her they care, because deep down she knows the version of herself she presents is not the reality she works so hard to convince people of. Its also convenient for writing people off when they are no longer of use. Like "they were stupid anyway, they thought this and the truth is that". Its weird. She lies to everyone, and hates you if you dont buy her bullshit, but doesnt respect you at all if you do. It causes a lot of turmoil in her life. She is like teal in the way that she denies any and all responsibility, continues to make the same mistakes, and expects to be catered to no matter how insufferable and inappropriate her behavior is.

      She will probably get more desperate and nasty as time goes on. I can see teal becoming like a tila tequila internet novelty. And I think she will take that and run with it when she realizes she wont be on the "world stage" to teach her delusions of grandeur. It would probably be for the best. Teal would get all the cheap attention she wants while everyone else would follow just to be entertained, as opposed to trying to "follow" the crazy train right over the edge.

    2. She knows it, too. She knows this is her window and she's said it. There was at least one tea thing, in which she got really honest about her game plan and intent to rack up a body of work so that when she had something to rely on when she's older and her looks have faded. That her body of work is really other people's bodies of work, she did not mention. There was also that recent bit of blather to the self-perceived homely woman about how it's hard for pretty women like herself, because they just don't know if they're loved for themselves or their bodies. She has some self-awareness about this, probably a lot of awareness, but only some that she'll publicly admit to, in less guarded moments. In the meanwhile, as she said in her BATGAP interview, "sex sells."

    3. "That her body of work is really other people's bodies of work, she did not mention".

      Yes. I feel like its because her actual body is her body of "work". That explains the random pictures of her younger self on posts where they dont fit. Get it all out there so when it falls apart, THAT will still be her image no matter how far she falls. Its sad. The "teachings" are just the wrapper she puts herself in. In my family we didnt even use real wrapping paper, we used the sunday funnies (because the the wrapper wasnt really the point). Maybe teals family did too?

  19. This is what Teal does. If she is freaking out she either talkes about her sex drive and her yoni, or she posts social activist post on fb so that the "tribe" unites in their agreement and forgets about the non sense they just read.

    Talking about Love and Sex addiction and then diving full into the world of Yoni eggs (you can not unknow this - from now on you will always wonder if she has yoni eggs in her vagina whilst teaching the world on stages) with a very impressive comment activity by herself on fb on the Yoni egg thread - in fact she was never that active on her friends fb page. She is really excited about her yoni eggs.

    Roll eyes. There is nothing wrong with yoni eggs and all the excitement about it. It is the way how, when and why she is putting it out there. Roll eyes again.

    lueurviolette: I like your summery.
    "You only insist on marrying people for a house (Mark), European visa (Sarbdeep) and wealth (Ale)."

    This reminds me of sb who commented on her wedding instagram post who just realized that she is not married to Sarbdeep anymore:"So she kept the name but not Sarbdeep"

    hahahaha. It was the Visa and the name she went for.

    1. Oh how could I forget! Of course the name! Ale will know his place when she chooses to keep Sarbdeep's name after the wedding :p

  20. So a week after this Ale guy couldn't get his children she wants to have a child. I mean wow you can really dupe people hard in this world. Funny how her fans can she other dimensions but can't see through this.

    1. No. Not a week after. She started writing about this the day he went for his court date. Just the thought of him going to fight for access to his children, caused her womb to weep. And, she hasn't let up since, not even after learning that she's the reason he can't share custody. Little Aurora, who she's been on about for years, is just yearning to be born. And, she has no compunction about whinging on and on about it endlessly, even as the man is probably grieving his loss of access to his other children.

    2. But she explains all the rationalization herself, in her "teachings"! haha. Examples:

      "Let yourself go after what you want. To unwant something you want is impossible; as surely as you cannot become less of what you are."

      -we are the sum total of what we want. Our desires define who we are, so what is the point in trying to direct that energy to something that makes sense and is good for the people around me?

      "An upset boils down to one of two things: thinking something should be that currently isn’t, or thinking something shouldn’t be that currently is."

      - Im pretty sure this a re-worded facebook meme. But basically, an upset is not getting your way. What does teal think shouldnt be? What does she think should be? She makes it pretty clear, haha.

      "If you believe that you have to love yourself first in order to love others or to be loved by others, then you do not believe in oneness. For in oneness, there is no genuine distinction between the self and others."

      -other people are mere extensions of yourself! (a textbook narcissist character trait). "Oneness" means not having to be accountable for your behavior, because everyone is you, there for THEY are your shadow. How convenient for her. If you dont believe that, then you dont believe in oneness! I dont love myself, but YOU have to. Or you just arent spiritual enough to get it.

      "Conflict is like a root that can either grow a fragrant flower or a poisonous weed depending on how it is tended. It can either be the catalyst of awakening or the catalyst of war."

      -A threat from the "catalyst" herself? Im pretty sure poisonous weeds can have flowers too, and Im pretty sure teal doesnt understand how obvious she is. This means "tread carefully, mind those eggshells".

      "Instead of trying to prove that the other person is to blame, ask yourself the following question: How is no one to blame? And then look for proof than neither of you are actually to blame."

      -Accountability? How about pass the buck and toss reason out the window. Sometimes someone IS to blame, and sometimes it needs to be called out and dealt with in a real way.

      "Waging war with your demons is the surest way to be defeated by them and so my advice is to pour a cup of tea for every one of your demons as quickly as they show up. "

      -indulge your demons! Make friends with them. I couldnt defeat mine with my a completion process I use over and over, so obviously no one beats their demons. Give in! Ask teal! look at my boobs!

    3. I also thought this one was interesting, "Wisdom is knowledge married to the knowing of the heart". I dont disagree, but it sounds very familiar though I couldnt find the similar quote. Interesting because teal uses the word "married" (she has been married how many times?), and heart seems to know fuck all according to her own life in constant turmoil. She is the poster child of wisdom because she follows her heart (whims) with no regard to anyone else, somehow. The only thing that impresses me about teal is her gall. Seriously. Where does plagiarism, lies, and pathological selfishness factor in to wisdom/intelligence? How does the "knowing of the heart" NOT include how Ale's kids (or HERS!) are effected. Why is TACT not a part of anything she does?

    4. Meal Ticket would be a more appropriate name for the child.

    5. "Maelyn Monae" (mail in money) Swan has a sort ring to it. Maybe even just Cash Swan, if its a boy. Like a golden egg goose.

    6. LaVaughn, I doubt that Ale is grieving the loss of his children that much. I did walk out on his wife AND children to be with this floosie cult leader. He completely ignores reality, ignores all signs around him - including Teal's blogs, which are a blatant sign of "hey, you are temporary in my life and thus replaceable", and is basically turning a blind eye to all.
      Ale is making his bed and will have to lay in it. I don't think he's a victim anymore at this point. He's just an idiot. A huge idiot at that. He is making a colossal mistake and it will be at the expense of his kids, who are the real victims here.
      Teal and Ale.. birds of a feather. A man eater is marrying a chump that left his wife and kids for a cult floosie.

    7. I am just wondering about Ale, same as i was wondering about Sarbdeep. They both were and are so smitten by her that all brain functions were in shock or so. Ale appears literally drunk and is overoveroveraffectionate to her. Look at all the images. It is all too much from his side and so much aversion from her side. Can't he see that? But then again - I guess he chose.

    8. Ale is obsessed with Teal. I don't know how well he'll let go of her once she's moved onto the next guy, if he becomes dangerous or not because he is in fact obsessed and will do anything (leave his kids) to be with her.

      Pluto opposing Venus is not an easy transit to go through, not everyone experiences this in their life. Relationships begun at this time will tear your heart out, gut you in some way. The people you choose will not be good for you, you become obsessed.

      Sarbdeep was very smitten but it didn't seem like he had much to lose and Teal was already unhinged from her ex so it seemed natural to start a relationship, but he did not lose his head. You could see how miserable he got over time in those tea episodes (hubby and I had a bet as to when he'd call it) and he confronted Teal on her bs from time to time. He's a down to earth kind of person and not as easy to manipulate, at least not for very long, so he bailed. Ale will not bail, he will be let go of and we'll see how well he will handle it.

    9. I am afraid you are right. Ale has a rough time ahead. He is dreaming so hard that waking up will suck one day. Teal is telling him and the world that she is not passionate about this relationship but sober, compatible and committed and that she seemed unsure and in pain to other people. What a desirable love relationship experience she is describing there. It is as if she is already talking to Ale's future self who will return to this blogpost one day and read it all over again (if it is still online) and she will say to him: did you not hear, you were so unavailable to my inner pain and egoistical. I am sorry I never loved you. I have to divorce you now. Please pay child support and take care of our child cause I am too busy to travel the world.

      Ale wake up. Talk to Sarbdeep or so. Where is Sarbdeep anyway? What happened to him? Is he hiding under a rock . is he agreeing with all this mess, does he not want his name back, is he still supplying Teal Eye with bodyguards and precious connections from his professional and personal life? Teal stated that he and her are still like comrads in the battle. It is mind boggling that Sarbdeep would still side with her. Even a blind person can see that Sarbdeep discovered something and run for his life.

      Yes I noticed that he got more tired and annoyed towards the end. He would just sit there and dream (the opposite of Ale as Sarbdeep got the reality check). I hope he is ok, same as i hope that Ale will somehow survive this wild ride. I was talking to different neutral people who never heard of a Teal Bosworth, Scott or Swan and showed them some blogs to read and some instagram pics and asked for their opinion to get a reality check myself. They all said the same thing and asked the same questions which are:

      Why is this woman so distant to this man (Ale)?
      Why is this woman marrying a guy when she describes their relationship as clinical as it gets?
      Why is this man marrying an self proclaimed wedding addict?
      What happened to the guy she called a psychopath and what happened to the bodyguard guy?
      Why do all the men disappear into silence?
      Why are you researching this person so much and give it so much time to expose?

      Although I can't answer the first 5 questions myself I did provide an answer for the last question. I am following my gut feeling. I have nothing against Teal Mary Bosworth and we all know that there must have been some major trauma. But all research doesn't show any proof of the stories of Teal Scott. I observe her mind games now for a long time and see how genuine loving people are pulled into it (Tealers) and can't distinguish the concept of teaching and manipulation. I saw so much disrespect towards these people from Teal's sideband I see how much confusion she puts out there by mixing her researched knowledge with her different forms of sociopathy, psychopath tendencies and what ever… that I would like to contribute to the date base of the www so that people who woke up out of this surreal trance can have a place where they get sober again. Same i hope for Teal. I don't doubt that there are aspect to her which are genuine like her aversion against vaccines, her love for vegan food etc, she enjoys painting geometrical objects and writing poems etc. This is real Teal. But sTeal is a nut case and messes up a lot of people. I don't like to support this with silence. I hope she will find a cure for herself without dragging so many people along the way to nurture her narcicism, her desire for power, wealth and celebrity status.

    10. Modern day, legal prostitution really has no perks. You may be sunbathing on venus in a diamond bathing suit and looking like the cover of vogue, but you're as good as an object in a museum, out of reach from anything alive, and very much dead yourself. That compelling man in the corner? Don't keep looking; Ale is watching, intensely.

      I know what she's getting into as I got myself out of it years ago and it's a living hell. She thinks she can delude herself but it won't last very long. Ale has played all the best tricks money can buy and they're soon to run out, then he'll only have his docile self to offer, and for a thrill and pleasure-seeker like Teal, good luck with that.

      We can all see her flame is out, which means up for ignition. Ale better keep an eye on the pool boy, post man, and just about everyone. Maybe she'll convince *cough-force-cough* Ale to accept her "transcendent self" and embrace an open marriage? The yoni eggs may have a purpose after all!

      Teal is a great case study for me as an astrologer because she blurts out so much about her life that I can keep track of events vs transits, make predictions and fine-tune my skills. Already asserted with Sarbdeep, I mean, who marries when Venus is retrograde and calls it auspicious? A poser spiritualist.

      Everyone here has seen her real self and it's natural to want to call her out on it where others seeing red flags may confirm their suspicions.

    11. In her own words about Sarbdeep (after claiming they were comrades):

      "Why did my ex husband decide I was impossible to be with just two weeks into the marriage and then leave me and say that his being ‘exhaled’ when he returned to London… so he knew he could not commit to me?"

    12. That. Blog. Oh my God.

      This is what I mean when I say that she's incapable of doing actual shadow work, and that this is why she could never work a twelve step program. She can't get past the splitting long enough to take a good hard look at her own shortcomings. She can't take responsibility. If Sarbdeep couldn't live with her, it's either because she's "bad," which is an unacceptable answer, or because she's an eternal victim, so that's her default. She can't do the internal work to face the simple fact that all humans have flaws and need to work on them and that she is, in fact, human. She's not an Arcturian Eucharist here to suffer for our sins. Sarbdeep left her because he discovered that she's impossible to live with, for any person with an ounce of self respect. She's just said so, but STILL can't admit it.

      And, can we please... Oh my God, she cannot write!

      "In Seattle, the clouds are so heavily laden with moisture that the clouds turn a particular shade of grey. They are almost the color of granite stone."

      She uses the word clouds twice in the same sentence. A modicum of knowledge about sentence construction would tell her to replace the second "clouds" to the referring pronoun "they." Everyone knows granite is a stone. You don't need to spell it out. And, for God's sake, clouds are not "laden" with moisture. The ARE moisture. What does she think the white ones are made of?

    13. Oh my god. This reminds me how much I'd enjoyed your noncasts, even after I stopped watching those "tea things" myself. I've learned so much about discernment and seeing better through the bs, anyone's, not just in this particular case, I think. We are all bombarded with some everyday, and the clear thinking skills require constant practice. The ongoing process launched here is something so useful and helpful and interesting to engage in, contribute or observe, kind of socratic in the determination to make people think, reduce ignorance,etc.

  21. Teal is still busy distracting her followers with a lot of shared fb links of all kinds. Very active Teal she is lately. I watched this video which she just shared on her fb called "Dear Daddy"

    Although I think that I understand the intend of the makers of this video, something went awfully wrong with it. I wonder if anybody else can see it.

    1. Yeah she is in damage control mode. Distract, edit, hope it blows over like it has in the past. I just hopped over to gabriels blog because the comments started up again with Lavaugns newer edits. The last time I was there, there were 76 comments (up quite a bit from where the conversation dropped off last year. I think there were maybe 50 or so comments, but I dont remember for sure). Now there are 65. Some of the new critical comments were left up, but many were just gone. They are part of the same galactic federation, so I thought that might be relevant. lol. Dog whistle is right. I think the video is part of a similar thing "Oh remember I am a victim, the men around me are the perpetrators. also remember how I am aching to get pregnant with my newest hubby? geee I wonder how this will go..." Stay tuned, it seems like maybe Ale will get the Fallen treatment if he isnt careful about appeasing teals "wants" since that is the sum total of her identity, and under the guise of "oneness", if he doesnt accept her wants and whims, he doesnt accept her, which means he wont be able to keep up with her expansion (acquiring, accumulating, collecting), like all the rest of her past flames.

    2. Yes agreed. She is using this video and strange victim perspective to strengthen her own victim story and to explain why the perfect man suddenly changes and she has to divorce again and again cause all the silly daddies out there don't stop their boys or other boys or boyfriends of his boy to call a girl bitch or to tell disrespectful jokes or whatever.

  22. In the latest blog, she laments that not enough worshippers on Ale's side will be present. So, she's having a contest to invite 22 of the most sappy, love-struck fans who can best worship her to attend her wedding to fill in the void. Of course Ale will pay for all of this nonsense.
    So, how long will this marriage last? I think 4 years at the most.

    1. 4 years? hahaha, not even close. I would legitimately amazed if lasted more than one year. Amazed.

    2. Less than that, both will have Saturn opposing their Suns and Venus in about a couple of months after the wedding. This cools off relationships, affection, happiness in general. Because both have it is even more revealing. Ale is going through a Pluto opposition to his Venus which means drastic change in relationships and falling for a femme fatale with unrequited love is kind of the cliché about this transit, which is already evident. Teal is also getting Pluto on her Descendant in about a year or two, which is the relationship point in the chart, which also tells me the divorce will be ugly because Pluto is an atomic bomb to everything he touches. My guess is she falls for someone else.

    3. Seriously, 2 years tops. She's always looking for the next victi, she admitted this in her latest blog post. She never changes, so if she's always had backup plans upon backup plans why would that change now? My money is on that weird guy she took a bunch of pictures with when she went to that charity benefit thing. Apparently his family owns deer valley, a very expensive ski resort hete in ut. Backup chaching in case ale comes to his senses.

    4. Let's face it. All are already on the list of follow ups. Some might work as place warmers. That's how her mind works, in her own words.

    5. LOL! All the guys she's recently banged she now takes pictures of and puts them up on instagram.

    6. I bet you that the chump, Ale, took the picture with the creepy guy putting his hand on her leg.
      She probably banged him because he's rich and told Ale that Source commanded it.

    7. not sure about the "banging, banged or will bang" all of them but they are all certainly aligned in a row. I guess as soon as she interacts with a male who can give her some service, connection or money, he becomes a serious candidate. It all starts casual and then special services apply. Same with Sarbdeep, who offered bodyguard services, same with ale…here a special treat for him. Fallon was the CEO of Tealeye once hahahaha and made websites.

  23. "you need to start living your life as if next week or next month or next year or even tomorrow may never come. So, if you know you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do with today?" Teal Swan

    So after analyzing Teal's distraction tactics I come to the following conclusion: after a very revealing blogpost about her tragic love and sex addiction, relax the head scratching groups of fans by

    1) posting a storm on fb about political debates, abuse, veganism and fun.

    2) talking about your vagina and yoni eggs to awaken the sex. phantasies and curiosity of your followers.

    3) reassuring people that you know what you are doing cause at the end of the day…you just f*** know

    4) relaxing people by pointing out that tomorrow could be the end of your life…so why not try and see how it feels to fly today.

    5) deleting all friends who dared to question you and replace them with a fresh bunch of fans

    6) trying to engage with people online to make them feel closer to you. Note: 10 replies in half an hour helps to break the old record of 1 comment per week.

    7) telling people that sb sent you pink surprise flowers (either an agreeing super fan, or the current fiancée or the future lover who will turn up in a blog post in few years, labeled as the "Rose Guy" … after the "Eiffel Tower Guy" disappeared in mysterious ways. )

    8) posting a picture of spring rolls and peanut sauce after pouring out your soul and heart to the www about your greatest pain in life.

    9) declaring that you will appear in the magazine "Watkins Mind Body Spirit" and do not give further details to give the impression to be one of the 100 most spiritual influential living people in 2016 cover story.

    10) licking the asses of some commentators how epic awake they are although the comment doesn't show any proof.

    11) distracting people and awaking their political brain by posting a video about the idiot called Donald Trump who insulted the mexican immigrants although you yourself had stated in the past that you hate mexicans, except Graciella.

    It is just a matter of time for cute picture post of dog Kaputh or cat Cosmos or a picture of looking blissed out at a child of a friend. ( :

    Teal is indeed a teacher. Ask Teal: How to manipulate a rather large group of intelligent and empathic people to forget and or overlook a big fat red flag they just saw

  24. CNN ran a story today on "Maria Duval" who swindled thousands (possibly millions) out of hurting fans and elderly people. Why did this remind me of Teal?
    I wouldn't be surprise if one day, she's indicted of fraud charges once she starts charging people for worthless shit and plagiarized workshops.

  25. Namaste my new friends,

    Sorry for the long delay in replying here, but my guru has blessed me to make a documentary at the upcoming Kumbh Mela in Ujjain, so I've been pretty busy looking into filming crews, researching the place and writing a general flow script. :)

    For the next couple months, I may be less involved in our conversations, but I get a good laugh every time I check here, especially when LaVaughn points out Teal's obvious linguistic shortcomings... It's sad to see how many people believe she is a genius with a 180 IQ, who downloads cosmic wisdom, when she can't actually speak or write. (This actually explains all the copying and pasting; anyone who has gone through high school knows plagiarism is an automatic fail, so other intellectual property thieves learn to re-phrase what they read. I'm starting to think Teal *would* do that, but honestly doesn't know how to...)

    Don't even know what to say about her take on AND Consciousness... So, the middle path needs to be replaced with a new model by which both extremes of human experience can be enjoyed. Wow. Next, she'll say Christianity needs to be updated, so she came down as a eucharist. Oh wait, she kind of already has said that. She also said Hindu masters, (Sai Baba specifically,) devolved by exhibiting divine powers, and implied that she is better because, though she claims to have "siddhis," she doesn't believe in demonstrating them since they will make others feel like less than her. (Funny... she thinks demonstrating powers will be off putting and make others feel lower, but claiming to be engineered as a perfect beauty by a panel of Arcturian masters, and that she is 3 points of perspective while most are 2, and that she is perfect consciousness in human form, are supposed to make people feel like her equal?! Lol. It's pretty obvious she doesn't have any powers, and came up with this perfect excuse never to have to try to prove herself.)

    rikitikitavari3: Thanks so much for the kind words, and for your comments on my videos. I enjoy what you've said to the Tealers.

    Gaby: Thanks for the info!

    LaVaughn, and all, regarding Teal's love for the Thesaurus: have any of you read a book called Star Signs, by Linda Goodman? It's an older book, very New Agey, about mainly Astrology but it's peppered with personal anecdotes from the author's life and techniques she doesn't really attribute to any teacher in particular. I used to love it when I was a young seeker. In it, she shares a spiritual technique called "Lexigram" that uses the analysis of English words to answer questions about those words. Basically, it's like anagrams, only merged with a sort of divination and intuition. I've thought of making a YouTube video about it, because in my own experience, it's produced some cool results. So in some ways, a Thesaurus can be a divine tool of discovery, but not, as I see it, in the way it's used by Teal. (For the record, maybe I shouldn't even mention Star Signs in this thread, because if Teal's reading this, she may start ripping off those teachings, too.)

  26. Oh, goodness. I remember Star Signs. I did publicity on one of Goodman's later books. I can't even remember what it was called. It didn't do very well. Star Signs was easily her best book. I wish what teal did with the thesauraus was anywhere near that clever. In one of the noncasts – I can't remember which, and I'm not going to bother looking for it now – we explored her idea of the thesaurus as a healing tool. It was something that you used to find your core vibration or something and then found the opposite vibration by looking at a list of antonyms. The basic idea was almost definitely stolen from someone else, can't remember who, right now. She added the thesaurus part.

    I've long said that anything can be an oracle, because the world is a reflector. But this, the thesaurus, used like this, no. Just no.

    Best of luck with your documentary. How very exciting. Thanks for dropping by.

  27. If you want some insight into why facts don't mater with tealers, read this. I know she's not a politician... exactly... but the principle is the same. When passions are high, no amount of reason can persuade.

    She whips people up into an emotional frenzy, with her "processes," that have them drudging up all their trauma. She makes sure they stay there with her constant personal drama and pity plays. And, it all short-circuits the reasoning centers of the brain.

  28. Good god, teal tribe has gotten dark. I notice it goes down a lot when there is drama happening (or maybe it goes down all the time and I dont notice because I check it only when there are developments happening to see if they take notice).

    There is a thread there about what is happening on that forum, and a lot of them mentioning feeling like there is a "cloak" over it, and something is keeping them from being able to articulate their thoughts, as well as more negativity. One used(I meant to type user, but I realized the typo fits just as well) called it more "authenticity". In response to another thread on the weird "vibes", someone said:

    "I don't want to look at that topic. I don't like it.

    Resistance? Probably, but this time I'll go on the resistance's hand, because it feels good. If it was something in there for me, I would have been drawn to it, at least out of curiosity, to see if there is any gossip or knives flying around.

    Enjoy life"

    THOSE are the results of a fraudulent spritualist. These people FEEL that something is wrong but are ignoring their intuition so hard that it becomes "a collective purging of old thoughts" (because the whole board seems to feel something is off), " its something else, something more, something hard to define. " its "growing more intense", its "like labrynth and an energy pressure cooker combined."

    And some seem to think those are good signs. Oh my god. Another person said "a lot of confused people joined the tribe recently, and we have to help them". I think the confused people they are referring to are the ones with actual questions. I hope with all that is coming out, they ALL get the help opening their eyes soon. Its disturbing to see that amount of cognitive dissonance. I've been shocked before by the the "enlightened" views I have seen over there, but not like this, it just feels...icky.

    1. Well, that's disturbing. Do you mean TT on FB or the site? I can't see the FB group, for obvious reasons. Birdies send me screenshots when it gets weird enough. I saw a lot of very troubling dynamics when I was working on that suicide post. But, I expect it's getting really bad about now. The emotional roller coaster that is teal's life has reached a particularly turbulent phase.

    2. Its on TT, not facebook.I didnt think to take screen shots, but I just looked this morning so I imagine it will all still be there unless the site 'goes down' again.

    3. they are running in circles. And after some time they feel that they are standing still and that there is a lack of deep understand and perception change. Also Teal is not present in this forum whatsoever and on a subconscious level these Tealers feel left alone and rejected by their chosen Teacher called Tea. They also develop internal conflicts after each revealing blog of Teal about marriage, love and sex addiction and also the research at celestial healing which will get to them somehow.

      They are confusing each other and get more and more stuck. For some of them it might just act as a socializing platform against loneliness, for others it is a fun place to talk about hobbies and shared love for crystals etc. But the is no real content, maybe great intend towards each other and the wish to motivate or support sb but they are without any guidance and hang up in Teal's Let's-go-nowhere techniques.

      The forum was left behind by Teal a long time ago. It was part of her business plan to create a virtual group of fans which she can easily reach and pitch for her workshops and do get some adoration whenever needed. I think I remember her talking about giving up the Tealtribe forum to somebody else (can anybody find the blogpost?). I forgot her silly reasoning behind it. Whenever they set up the fb teal tribe page, she neglected the page cause it was too hard to control. FB teal tribe is being watched like a hawk and anybody criticizing her is being kicked out.

      I watched for a while and it felt like kids playing games and showing each other crystals they found and give here and there a pep talk to sb and advising others to do more shadow work. If you would like to loose your sanity and fall into a thousand pit holes, please go to and engage. The queen left the building after transferring some of the online profiles into real money to attend their workshops. Queen moved on to a highly controlled platform with watch dogs, guards and enforcement of consequences for questioning behavior by fans.

      Tealers, wake up. Do you feel really better since following Teal or is the gap between both extremes just getting bigger? Sweet torture. Wake up and for fuck sack stop snorting these Teal lines and put your credit cards away.

    4. Run by the Teal Operating system? Tealers watch out.

    5. The name of the thread is "what is happening here, does anyone else feel it?"

      And after a second look it is even more damning. They are perfectly describing the symptoms of cognitive dissonance. And quite frankly, emotional abuse. Going through teals "processes" results in damage. They end up with symptoms one has with an abusive partner, but it comes from applying teals "perspective" to themselves and their lives. Like how it feels like trying to look through "a fog", its blurred and the mind "cant make sense of it". After a few comments about how appropriate the work "cloak" was, some chipped in with its just an upgrading process! The "bugs" are being worked out, and that is why they feel this way.

      "I feel self conscious but that it's incommunicable."

      Cant speak about what doesnt add up? Cant ask the real questions, so the "answers" you get dont resonate, even though you feel like they are supposed to? Pressured even?

      No! it must be mercury retrograde, but not all the tealers bought that explanation either, which is heartening. Then again:

      "Teal Tribe has attracted many lower vibrational entities to it"

      i.e. "US versus THEM". US being true tealers and spiritual people, and THEM being naysayers and questioners who are also lower than us, vibrationally/spritually/in general. No wonder why people feel like they cant speak up?

      Yet another commenter mentioned that teal tribe was never that high vibration to start with, and now "masks are starting to slip", but in reference to other tribers, NOT teal herself. Slipping masks are other narcissistic/BPD abuse terminology, but they are projecting on each other instead of being willing to see what they all have in common here. They are describing:

      A fog they are in
      A cloak around the truth
      A confusion and tension that is hard to put a finger on
      A feeling that they cant/shouldnt speak up
      A feeling that they are in a pressure cooker
      A feeling that the "mask is slipping"

      I mean, how much more obvious can it be at this point?

      Rikitikitavi3, good point about the gap between extremes getting bigger, that was the EXACT subject of a recent video, where she takes the concept of the "middle way" and changes it into "go for BOTH extremes!". Its what she advocates, and they take it to heart, thus ignoring the flashing red neon signs that say "TURN BACK WRONG WAY".

    6. Also its incredibly interesting how teal as normalized the idea of a "low vibrational boogieman". What other spiritual teacher has their students talking about low "entities" praying on them and their spirituality? Its bizarre and fascinating. How long until they realize just WHO this entity is?

    7. If my i felt as though my spiritual teacher attracted "low vibrational entities", that would be when I realized that person should NOT be my teacher. Just saying. How do they integrate that into their faith in her? I dont get it.

    8. do you mean this one from Jan 2015

    9. Yes, thats the one. It was closer to the top because its got recent replies from today.

    10. There is also this one where a former follower calls teal out on her obvious hypocrisy and how her teachings didnt help the poster. She had posted before about teals bullshit, but gets shot down. If you look you will see she gets the typical 'aww someone needs attention, the problem is your perception, not the glaring inconsistencies and gut feelings are totally irrelevant to our spiritual development! It is better to just change your mind <3" type of response.

      Its sad because she responds to that by backing down and chalking it up to a bad day. Silence all dissidence! Even in teals absence they do it to themselves. In that thread one person even says "Also Teal will 99.9999% likely to never read this as she doesn't read anything people say on here.", Speaking to that minor .00001% chance that she WILL, they censor themselves into complete delusion. Heartbreaking.

    11. All of my accounts on Teal Tribe ( were deleted. I noticed that the "defenders" are all people who are brand new to the forum. There are some veterans there who I remember used to be staunch Teal supporters and have since opened their eyes. I have noticed that the staunch defenders are all new to the forum.
      I believe that the person who started the Teal is Irritating thread posts on here. I could have sworn I've seen her name.
      Her time is up. No one will take her seriously and it's only a matter of time before Hay House fires her.

  29. Maybe it IS a good sign though, maybe the spell is breaking. I can hope for their sake, because it only seems to get worse and worse.

  30. Well folks, it's up! The real Swan is singing.

    The Black Swan, a blog by Sarbdeep Swan.

    1. "She was doing everything but looking at her own behaviour and changing it..."

      What was I just saying? She can't do real shadow work. She can't admit fault.

    2. Oh I am So so sooo glad he is speaking out! Considering how his dignity is continually thrashed by teal(and his very valid need for privacy), it must have taken a lot of courage and thought to decide to speak out and help others avoid the trap. I dont think teal is as much as a victim regarding Ale that he does, but he was her husband so I get that. I thought this was really insightful "In order to make herself right, she has to make others wrong". Bingo. Narcissism/BPD in a nutshell. Great blog, I look forward to reading more.

    3. Actually she's a lot worse than I thought. Thank you so much Sarbdeep for speaking out, her drones totally needed to see this. And I stand corrected on her birth time, Pluto is not opposing her Ascendant in a couple of years, it's clearly happening now. Let's see what decision Hay House will come to given all of this information that is coming to light. Hopefully they won't willingly tarnish their reputation by continuing with the project.

    4. I've been advised that this was posted in Teal Tribe (FB) and both the post and the person have been deleted.

    5. "What I did not expect was a constant undermining of myself, both public and private, and using her ‘community members’ to interfere in our marriage."

      She did the same thing with Fallon and it was evident from her own blog posts during their break-up.

      "Trying to charm then manipulate, then abuse and then finally use victimhood to get her way."

      Again: the pity play.

    6. My gosh, Teal is a toxic human being -- how is she qualified to be a spiritual leader, again?? 0_o

    7. A couple things I'm so interested to hear more about:

      "She was offered a $25,000 advance for her first book with them and she was about to sign on an offer of $50,000 advance for ‘her’ second book, ‘The Completion Process’ (I will write a whole blog on the sorry saga of ‘her’ process another time)."

      Notice how he every single time he referred to the process, he put 'her' in quotes...

      And this:

      "The sad part is that she did suffer some child abuse and this has deeply damaged her ability to discern in relationships."

      The italicized "some"...

  31. Sarbdeep if you read this please expose Blake. He's another fake in all of this. Coward who is used for a cheap lay and still defends her. Complete loser.

    1. Zach Moyer is another schmuck that she uses between boyfriends. He's not as talked about as Blake.

    2. 948a83f0-526b-11e4-a48b-7b50a0d53b4c:

      I think Zach is gay and this is his boyfriend.

      A gay collegue promises long term work relationships as event organiser ( ; if you know how to stroke the ego - which she knows. The sweet Dalano Kyle is gay as well. He will be her longterm stylist. She stroke his ego on one of the workshops, confirmed him as soul fork. Gay relationships suit Teal cause the sexual mind games and she feels safe with them.

      Cheese: I agree with you. Blake comes across as very sympathic, easy going. He was there at the start of all this madness and he is slick like an eal. Would be interesting to hear Sarbdeep's view. I remember some rivalry between Blake towards Sarb during on of these online workshops. Sarb got excited cause wifey had to go to toilet and suggested that the guys can ask him questions until she returns. He asked Blake to read a question to him and Blake chose to ask him a question about sb who has orgasm problems....AWKWARD silence and a mean laugh by Blake and Teal comes back from the toilet

      hahahah do you remember it?


    1. Right, its so pathetic. You know she will be backpeddling any minute now. Maybe she is tryng to jedi-mind-trick Sarbdeep? Like "we are on GOOD terms, sarb and I", "this is not the narcissistic sociopath you are looking for..."

      Oh teal, your time is up.

    2. BWAHAHAHA... "This is not the narcissistic sociopath you are looking for..."

      Oh, good one!

  33. He's posted it on his FB profile. The same profile that had photos of him and teal. It's amazing how relentless this woman is to throw smoke and mirrors around people. Incredible...

    Take note 'tealers', take note of your gurus' behaviour and realize it's not exclusive to anything.

  34. Not only that, he posted on TWO profiles. One under "sarb swan", which is a new page that is more dedicated to that new blog, it seems like. And also his personal page. It is clear he wants the truth out. Teal wants the agreed upon "official story" to reflect well on her, but of course the truth has nothing to do with that. She tried to take advantage of Sarbdeeps good will and maturity towards her, but continued to take cheap shots at him in her blog while glorifying herself. Only teal is surprised by how that wouldnt work out. I checked TT, seems like it is being censored over there but on FB, a lot of "tealers" are seeing it and spreading it around. Many were annoyed that it was banned and blocked on the FB teal tribe (I cant see the group there, just read the comments on Sarbdeep's page).

    She's calling it a "scam", because she knows it reveals HER for a scam. Poor old teal. She must be in a tizzy right about now. A thoughtful honest reflection that didnt even name names is a "scam", but her endless slandering and bizzare and baseless accusations are "authentic".

    1. She will try to find a diversion from all this, it's all she knows to do when put on the spot. Hopefully her followers will take the blinders off.

    2. Yeah she will. Thankfully for her (and ultimately everyone else, because he isnt any more clever than she is), Blakey is already white-knighting and glossing over all the implications of Sarbdeeps truth. I would copy-paste it here, but its long and stupid. Essentially it says "If you think anything is wrong with teal, thats fine. Its really a reflection of you. But if you talk about it, you are a troll just spreading hate (not knowledge or empowerment, because, yes, Blake, it IS a fucking cult). And we dont tolerate trolls. I cried becasue of how hard this is for us. Lets look right past this, and remember that in order to spiritual, we should work together in sweeping it under the rug while saying meaningless platitudes. I love you all."

      So basically, the usual. I guess he doesnt think its a scam or hoax then? Thats telling isnt it.

    3. Im willing to bet he cried because he got to hear how teal bragged to Sarbdeep about using him "in between boyfriends". He had a moment of clarity, but be lives with the harpy, so its easier to go along and live in denial and decide thats just teal being authentic, and his pain about it is secondary and rooted in anything BUT her behavior or treatment of him. because he doesnt have an identity outside of teal.

      I dont want to spam Lavaugns comments with copy paste, so hopefully someone out there is taking screen shots for the inevitable change of story.

    4. Yes I saw that, big rolling of the eyes, actually they nearly got stuck in the upward position. The man has lost all sense of self, swept clean of any identity he had, it's all teal. teal's little slave, and yes you pretty much summed it all up.

      "I cried becasue of how hard this is for us. Lets look right past this, and remember that in order to spiritual, we should work together in sweeping it under the rug while saying meaningless platitudes. I love you all."

      lol so true...

    5. Yep, and it looks like he already deleted it. It will be interesting to hear what version of the truth they come up with now. If any at all, probably just more of the never really addressing it while implying how "low vibration" it is to question teal in the first place. I saw your comment about blake being the writer..Hmmmmm! makes ya wonder for sure! He is helplessly enmeshed.

    6. openeyes: well I guess i spamed LV blog with the comment ( ; thanks god I did, cause it is gone.
      The Spammer :D

    7. Haha I saw that, and was glad someone did. I need to just start screen shotting things, they are always trying to edit and rewrite the things they do and say. They've painted themselves into a corner now, though!

      Dang, I could have asked if thats what he was doing in that picture of blake painting the green screen for teal, hahaha.

  35. WOW just WOW. Sarbdeep is alive and putting things in perspective. Thank you Sarbdeep. I am very moved by your blog and have to digest it first.

    And Blake and Teal ( are already on the case. Blake just posted this on Sarb's fb page

    "Blake Dyer I think I'll just add my final thoughts to all the beautiful people here. I love you all so much and the support you have brought each other in everyone's processes has been so inspiring, that this has inspired me to initiate support groups all over the world in regards to Teal's Material. (come and go as you please, take all the information with a grain of salt, decide for yourself. Use all the information as it serves you. OMG it's not a fucking cult). Obviously this is all very triggering to everyone, between personal insults, and deletion of posts. Including myself (for me... it's the "I have to please everyone or else I'm unsafe" (adopted from parents fighting and making my mother happy, because if I didn't it meant pain)). But I am learning to stand in my own power and passion, do what I believe in and that it's ok to make enemies as long as I stand in my truth. So just to let everyone know, we will remove hateful posts regarding Teal from this forum (links, posts). We will also attempt to decipher between Trolls and people with legitimate balanced questions. I know this sounds vague. But I will try to make it as clear as possible. External Links to hateful posts will be removed. If you want to have a discussion, feel free. If we feel you are TROLLING, then you will be removed. My Definition of a TROLL: is that you've made your mind up about how someone is, and your conversation is a string of comments defending your stance without self reflection. . So, yes please have discussions, but if your comments result in hurtful comments without self reflection, you will be removed. Teal Tribe has become a revolutionary safe place for people. and I've seen people baring their souls here only to be received with compassion and love. I've seen this group literally save lives as it's resulted in a safe place for expression where there has been none in many people's lives. This space is also a safe place for Teal because she is a fucking Human Being! so this applies to her as well. Which this is why it has been so tricky. Because people often don't treat her as so. They treat her like she is either the devil cult leader out to manipulate the masses. or like a God, the savior of all humanity and that anyone against her should be destroyed. So you are all experiencing our projections of that in one way or another. So please don't speak about her like she's not here or demonize others for questioning her. I think a lot of this pain from Sarb has come from people attacking him on our behalf and he felt that he needed to defend himself....

  36. And perhaps he felt powerless enough that the only way to defend himself was by demonizing the one that other's were propping up as a god. So Please don't attack him for this. Come with compassion and the idea they're both very human experiencing a human relationship that we all know involves pain. We are all in this together. Teal has undertaken a huge burden with her authenticity movement. And it has been a balance it defining ones own personal boundaries with upholding authenticity. Trolling Blogs and Post are a Personal Boundary for this Page. Teal has started something that is almost a direct affront to society as we know it. Authenticity is tough and it exposes wounds directly in your face, but that is infinitely better than what has happened behind closed doors in our society. So I think that's why most of us are even here, and it's fucking scary when it looks like a page or group isn't being authentic. So I'm sorry that people have been scared like this. I also think that people have been scared of Teal because of what other people say. These hateful articles made from fear, wrought with shadows from their own past lacking self reflection all about Teal. I believe people are attaching that fear to Teal and calling it the same thing. And maybe that's why people are so confused because they see beautiful life changing content from Teal, then see all this hate and don't know what to believe. So in any case this offers us an incredible opportunity to get into touch with ourselves. Take the information and content you read and really question yourself and explore your emotions regarding it. How does this make me feel? What is the purpose of the author in writing this? Is there self reflection? Does it come from fear or inspiration? How is this information beneficial to me? Then decide for yourself.

    It saddens me so much to see each other fighting when there are such larger obstacles in this life to positive world change. (Although I think Teal once said, we’ve created it this way for our own expansion) haha. But still I feel so much pain in regard to these tattered relationships just left on the floor to the dogs. Honestly I broke down and cried in the shower today over the inherent pain in all of this. But moving forward I hope we can all do so together. We need each other for what is to come on this earth. Especially spiritual teachers, and now Sarb has begun teaching. The teachers need to work together because there is so much beautiful change that we have at our finger tips if we’d just take the opportunity to embrace it. Love you all so much,

    1. Makes you wonder if Blake writes all her blog posts, because it follows the exact same principle of dissonance and victimhood.

      Authenticity, Blake, really? Umm.. She's just been exposed as a liar and vile person. I found it sad that Sarb was still justifying her behaviour with her alleged past.

  37. Dear Blake, you can't protect Teal any longer... This is a reality check... long due. Sarbdeep Swan wrote with grace, clarity and urgency. I couldn't find one bitter word in his blog but a deep desire to correct the false picture you both created about him in the public eye. I cannot find any sign of powerlessness in his words. He is there, standing up for himself and is finally a single ex lover who speaks up against Teal's GAMES.

    Reality check.
    It's not the time for flower power speeches dear Blake.
    Let the Tealers know about this blog and those who will stick to you guys are truly your tealers. Don't censor this blog, censor hate comments, yes but put a link to Sarbdeep's blog at the tealtribe on fb. Stop hiding stuff.


  38. Interesting turn of events, especially Teal's original reaction of denial, and implication of her expectation that all 'Tealers' should assume all negativity coming from her 'haters' as a 'scam'. She mentioned how 'disappointed' she was that they didnt already assume so and even dared raise doubts.

    When Sarbdeep described Teal as Gollum, in the statement "The more fame they get, the more the cavernous void in their chest opens up into their being, and the more they seek to fill that hole, it never ends. It’s a Gollum type of existence and not pretty to observe close up." I had to LOL.

    Either way the blog was very well written. Looking forward to him voicing more of his insights. Particularly about the 'completion process'.

  39. OMG what's going on. Just saw this:

    Open letter to Louise Hay, about Teal Swan and Completion Process
    by Ma Nithya Mayatitananda

  40. She has sure been quiet today, for someone who was suddenly VERY active on facebook...


    1. Lmao. I wonder what her response will be?? Sarbdeep was very grounded, mature, forthright, and level-headed in his first blog post... there's no way she can just ignore it or dismiss it as "hate" as she always does. He was very clear that he'd be correcting any lies, manipulations, exaggerations, etc. of hers, and that he'd be providing documentation where applicable as confirmation. I bet she's freaking out..


      I have to say... I also wonder how Ale responded?? I can totally picture Teal talking badly about him behind his back (didn't Cameron say she would do the same to Graciela in regards to her weight? 0_o). Maybe I'm reaching, but I thought it was inconsiderate of Teal in her latest blog post to go on about how handsome, deep, and rich with personality Sarbdeep was to her, meanwhile she's engaged to Ale. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't recall a time where she's ever talked highly about Ale in those regards. Even in pictures she looks turned-off and disgusted by him. With the exception of their engagement photos (which look forced as fuck), she's always pulling away from him or turned the other way.. I guess Ale only sees what he wants to see.

      Sarbdeep's blog, *this* blog, Ma Nithya's videos and Facebook posts, the open letters to Hay House, Cameron's interview with "Doc" four months ago... the truth is revealing itself more and more. There's too much out there now.. she won't be able to lie or manipulate her way out of it for much longer. She won't have any other choice but to face it.

    2. I wonder too. I bet he reacted like Blake did and probably cried and felt horrible. But Im sure she is busy right now back paddling and trying to keep her tribe on her side. When a narc/BPD person talks shit to one person about another, its called "triangulation", its another of those textbook features she has. Its meant to make the person feel small, like they are lucky to have what they do, and it gains the upper hand by using their (homemade and deliberate) insecurities as leverage. If you are the person they are talking shit TO, you feel special and privileged she because she "confides" in you. Its not until you gain distance from that that you realize you are being used and manipulated. I dont think its reaching at all, in fact I think inconsiderate is an understatement.

      Yeah I agree, the pictures say everything. Her response should be interesting, though I understand her fear because she has a lot of people watching for what she will say now, and she knows that Sarb will respond with his truth. She has gotten herself tangled in her own web.

  41. I could see her doing something REALLY dramatic as a last ditch effort to solidify her permanent status as "victim". (after all, Sarbdeep was a great profession connection, if they are no longer on good terms -WATCH OUT SARB SHE WILL TRY- all she has is Blake and his sock puppet accounts). It would be predictable if there is an uptick of 'seizures', 'disassociations' and other 'poor agonized teal' emergencies in light of this....light.

    On another note, here is a short video I came across about dangerous women. Sounds extremely familar.

  42. Teals new quote on TT "Instead of asking "If the universe loved me, why would this bad thing happen?", ask "Assuming the universe loves me, why did or is this thing happening".

    For Christ's sake teal. Its simple cause and effect. Being an extraterrestrial soul fork from the 6th dimension should give you the "perspective" to see that, right? Its happening because you are a liar and you steal from other teachers and slander the names and attempt to silence the voice of any person who notices that. Its a result of your own shady behavior. If the "universe" has anything to do with it, its justice on behalf of your flock of mislead seekers, and on behalf of every person you have abused in the name of your own "expansion". You are a joke and the universe is laughing.

    The "bad thing" is only perceived as bad because your truth is a lie. If authenticity meant anything other than "teal is except from any common decency", then this would be encouraged from you. Celebrated even. After all, Sarbdeep finally overcame his "trigger" of the need for privacy that you harped on him about publicly and harshly. Isnt this progress then? Why is it bad? Of course, this is probably only the beginning of a an impressive degree of mental gymnastics to ensure that teal doesnt have to really face herself and change her own behavior or analyze what the meaning an importance of ethics are. These things are up to "the universe" when it comes to her, even though she pretends to be preach empowerment.

    1. "Assuming the universe loves me, why did or is this thing happening"

      Because the universe lets us reap what we sow, Einstein.

      Every quote, comment and blog post this woman makes sinks her deeper into a low no one I've ever known had previously reached.

    2. Oh 100%. Just when i think she cant get more ridiculous and sad, she does it, and I am still amazed. She is damn lucky she has so many handlers. But her time with that luxury is limited now. Can you imagine how teal would present absent of all of her PR/censorship/revisionism that is the duty of her 'intentional community'? (Its INTENTION is clear). It must be hard though, trying to handle ANYTHING in reality with that broken brain of hers. Circles circles circles.

    3. The comments that are starting on facebook are so far "supportive".

      "Because there will always be trolls.
      Moths generally are attracted to bright lights."

      While cockroaches flee from it.

      Teal has consistently refused to be accountable or answer to any criticism or valid concern by way of holing up until it blows over, or blatantly lying. I would be thankful for all the "moths" warning you about your "light". If anything she is a BUGZAPPER.

    4. "Assuming the universe loves me, why did this thing happen or why is it happening?" Unbelievable! The woman *still* takes zero responsibility for her life.

      It's happening because you've lied, manipulated, plagiarized, exaggerated the truth, etc, and now you're reaping the consequences of those actions!

    5. Teal is trying to deflect and "help out" her followers to digest the news by making them search in themselves for the reason that she appeared in their life and represents a liar. ha. Teal. Lame.

      I have an idea Teal & Blake: why don't you invent a conspiracy theory that Sarbdeep was sent by the government to gain your trust, marry you and then to destroy you! Watch some James Bond movies to enrich your story about the secret agent Swan and then write a nice dramatic blog.

      Looking forward to your thriller :D

  43. I wonder who the "Hollywood Actor" she was talking to was? Too bad it didn't go any further because then the truth would have come out like water out of a fire hose.

    1. I think it was Sean Stone, who she did a couple interviews with. He is the son of Oliver Stone, a director. Wiki said he is cast in his fathers films. I never heard of him before the teal interview, however, so famous or A-list he is not, though he is probably as close as teal swan would ever actually get to real fame. No wonder she was so desperate to get and keep his attention. He, too, seems to buy her shit hook line and sinker in the interview, while teal seems to be making stuff up on the spot. But then, as Sarb explains, he lost interest in her. probably because he realized she is batshit crazy and didnt have a thing to offer him besides stress and insane lies.

    2. No, not Sean Stone. Remember - 2nd child was on its way, skype session between jan14 - aug14. 2nd child probably was born end of 2014 or beginning 2015. There are not that many well known male actors in Hollywood who match this. I have an idea but it is wildest speculation. So no point in that. Did Sarbdeep talk by any chance about an iron dick? ;D

    3. Rikitikitavi3, I think Openeyes might be right and it might be Sean Stone. I clicked on his facebook page and it's full of conspiracy theories and stuff like that. He's definitely into the new age and converted to Shia Islam (but still holds on to his beliefs) according to his bio.

    4. but where is his first and second child and his wife?

    5. It doesn't fit for me cause she was with him in the studio. As far as I see it, Teal would have taken action then as she met him in person. No, just no. Sean is also far away from the label "a well known hollywood actor". NOPE ;)

  44. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Ale is NOT a victim. He is a scum bag who left his wife and children to chase a wanna-be cult leader. Sarbdeep didn't need to say it.. I knew he had a thing for her while she was married. He just looks like a creeper. Also, the fact that during a divorce, a judge is ordering him to only see his children in CA and away from Teal means that something is SERIOUSLY wrong. Judges do not disallow children to be near a certain adult or allow a parent to only see their children in such and such place unless some serious issue is present.
    I stand by what I said before. You keep them how you get them. They deserve each other. They are birds of a feather.
    This will not end well for them. She is an "Alcoholic" saying that she is "sober" after 2 or 3 "AA meetings", indeed.

  45. All is quiet from Camp Gabriel Kundalini. I bet he opened his eyes and saw what is really going on and he's too scared, stunned, or embarrassed to come out and say Teal's "haters" are right. He's in hiding right now.

    1. That is very possible. However I feel like its more likely he is waiting for the approved story from teal before he speaks up (unless he adopted the teal approach, which is to ignore indefinitely). He seems like a smart and kind person, but man is he wrapped up in her double speak and the possibility that he and teal really ARE apart of something bigger (as per teals claim of a galactic greenpeace no body knows they are in until she tells them). Sad thing is, if he follows through with blindly supporting her in face of everything that has come out, he will destroy his own credibility and therefore his ability to share his message with others and have the positive impact he wants to have. I really do hope he opens his eyes though, its the best case.

  46. OK, a dark thought just occurred to me. If the way Sarb describes Ale is true... then isn't Teal in BIG trouble getting involved with this guy? What if Teal (based on her body language) is scared of Ale and Ale is pushing her to marry him because clearly he is obsessed with her? What if Teal really lost control and is repeating the same patterns as an abused child?

    1. This comment has been removed by the author.

    2. No. She is the one that wants stuff of him (and a baby) and is bending the heck out of her own aversion against him in order to get what she wants. Her rejection in the images is because she is not attracted to him and he is constantly in her face, like really in her face like this

      and she tries to get some space and the money and connection and wedding ring.

    3. That sounds like something teal would make up to absolve herself once again. She will throw anyones reputation under a bus to save her own, as evidenced all throughout her "career". Now that you put it out there, she might plagiarize the story. I foresee a new book! "how I keep triumphing over victimhood...while retaining my special status as victim!"

      Deleted and re-posted because I thought of a better title for the book.

    4. Hahaha... the photo cracked me up!

      This one is quite revealing:

      Look at his hands, and her expression.

      If I didn't think she deserved her fate I'd feel sorry for her.. Both, actually.

    5. Oh my God, lueurviolette, that is hilarious, Gecko's death grip on her shoulder. My husband said: Dracula and Mina.

    6. Haha.. Shoulder and waist! Dracula is kinda sexy but I cannot personally say the same about Ale. I noticed the napkin on her lap and wondered if he asked the waiter to take that photo whilst they were in between courses, or if it was the ever-present Blake who took it, or Graciela? Considering her bizarre way of life, I would believe it. Anyway her face says a lot of things and "sigh... again?" is one of them.

    7. OMG this pic.
      reminds me of this here. hahaha

  47. "I saw a photo of her at the hairdresser on her instagram account, her eyes seemed cold and hard and I could see cruelty and disdain in her smirk as she looked at herself in the mirror."

    Here's the picture:

  48. Still thinking about Sarbdeep's very complex blog. I am beyond delighted that he appeared again the way he chose to. Still trying to connect the dots. All makes sense...Thank you Sarbdeep. You are a star - unintentionally.

    So crucial...

    1. Jessica Schab wrote a comment on his fb page thanking him for having shared his story, and even humbly taking back whatever negative things she had said about him before, under the thread. I thought it was very sweet of her but this morning it was all gone and I'm sure it wasn't her who did it. He's been deleting a lot of comments, some I understand due to the negative or ignorant nature of them, but this one I did not, and did tarnish my image of him thus far.

    2. I think he just wants his words to stand alone. It doesnt seem like he wants to start something bigger regarding teal. It seems like he just wants to defend his own self and let his experience be out there for the discernment of whoever finds it. Namely followers of teal who thought highly enough of Sarbdeep to take it serious and will be able to see through some of her nonsense with the information he shares.

      Cameron commented on that about how she was out-waving bye to the circus, but that she was glad he found his way out. The other comments were about getting "official statements" and stuff like that. It doesnt seem like he wants to get MORE wrapped up in her mess, but to clarify what he already went through. I could understand deleting Jessicas comment because her approach to teal was less than professional at the start (though crucial to everyones awareness at the time, and her comment on his FB was friendly). He doesnt want to be labeled as "joining the haters" and have his experience dismissed. Also, it seems like Jess has a lot of other drama with her EOF project and that cults awareness group, so again, i can understand his distancing himself from that.

      Thats just my take on it though, I could be wrong. But I think it works better if her followers are seeing from how many people this is coming from, its harder to write off as an 'army of haters' or whatever bullshit she would say to dismiss it.

    3. I'm not big on removing comments. You'll note that I don't, unless they're hate speech or doxing. But, if he was going to remove comments, hers would the normal ones to remove. There is very bad blood, there, far worse than what she addressed in her apology. And, not that this would matter to him, but she also dragged Cameron into the discussion, against her will. She, once again, acted proprietary over Cameron, which is a pattern of hers. Again, not why Sarbs removed it, I'm sure, but, to my eye, in poor taste. No one does poor taste better than Jessica. And there was an "I told ya so" air to her comments that was just cheapening. So, me, I would have left them, but I can't really fault Sarbdeep on this.

    4. I didn't see Cameron's comments or what followed so I guess I'm missing a chunk of it.

    5. Sarbdeep better stay far away from Jessica Schab who can be the sweetest person UNTIL SHE TURNS. And she will turn on you - as long as I observe her it was always the case. Totally appropriate to delete her comment. I saw it too and sweet Jessica was present indeed. Just a matter of time until she rips Sarbdeep in bits for his own teachings and opinions.

      I have no doubt that Sarbdeep will speak up and will reveal the full picture. Just be patient. No doubt.

      I didn't see him deleting many comments. 90% were fully agreeing with him and thanking him, 10% were very accaptive and wellwishing and also like Teal.

    6. Openeyes, you articulated so well my thoughts on the matter!

      When I saw that she commented I immediately thought, "Oh, great. This nutjob (sorry, not sorry) is gonna taint what Sarbdeep is trying to do." There really was an air of "I told ya so" in her comments, which to me, just screams that she was only there to say how "right" she was about Teal. IDK, it always seemed like Jessica was out to get Teal, like she was intent on "exposing" her, whereas people like Sarb and Cameron just wanted to speak their truth. Of course I can't speak for her, but I think even Cameron wants NO association with her anymore as the first line in her comment was something along the lines of, 'I don't want to be a part of this.' Lol.

    7. I also thought it was incredibly crass to apologize NOW. To only apologize to someone when they seem to be agreeing with you, very transparent. You apologize to people for the wrong you've done, not because they've redeemed themselves in your eyes.

    8. I agree blairgilbert! Jessica prefaced her post about Sarbdeeps bog (on her own page) with, I have been trying to expose teal for years, and this confirms everything. Which, I dont think there is anything wrong with that in and of itself. Because its true, and I would be lying if I didnt admit some level of satisfaction from the truth coming out to a wider audience. But I dont blame Cameron or SB for keeping their distance. Her approach kind of feels petty and coming from a negative place, though I am glad the interviews are out there, I dont really like the way she approaches and handles things.

    9. Yes you all point it out well. Just saw at Diego's page his kind of phrasing

      When we, as ‪#‎EOFProject‬ , said that we were right about the mumbo jumbo (self proclaimed 'spiritual catalyst', 'arturian alien', 'reincarnation of sai baba' and many other things), known as ‪#‎tealswan‬.. what we actually meant by that was:

  49. ALINA this blog is a gift to you. May you find confirmation, relief and healing. I am delighted for you. I hope you will find it.


    1. WTF did I just read? 0_0 She babbled on without saying anything. All I took from it is that she's questioning her decision to be so open now that Sarbdeep is speaking the truth...


    2. I can't watch Teal any longer twisting the shit out of stuff. It makes my ears flutter so hard. It actually hurts. Poor poor Tealers. You are so trapped whilst dreaming of running under teal-coloured rainbows - you have no idea. May this be a lesson for you guys to learn to recognize manipulation at its finest. Teal is in fact the best teacher for that. Congratulations - I guess this is why you gather around this master of camouflage. No hard feelings. I can't blame you for not seeing her. I didn't see her for a while as well. Keep watching and learning.


    3. "Even 'authenticity' itself as a spiritual identity can be a mask that is inauthentic. And if you fall short of that ideal, you think you’re failing."

      Because you ARE failing! Wearing authenticity as a mask isn't falling short of an ideal! It's being a total fraud! Faux authentic is an oxymoron!

      She's unbelievable!

    4. I tried to read the whole thing, but I just couldnt put myself through it. The whole implication that this is somehow about being hated for being "not perfect", or that people are expecting her to be perfect (as opposed to simply ACCOUNTABLE, as an authentic "leader of the new age", lol) is enormously grating.

      I got this part, and had a good hearty laugh, though:

      "I do not feel like I made this career for myself. I feel like it has unfolded through me like a creature of its own accord."

      Ha. hahahahaha, ok sure, lady. It has nothing to do with you making up extreme false stories and going public as a self-proclaimed "poster child" for said thing, writing books, marketing via sock puppet accounts, doing youtube videos, doing interviews, making your personal life a dramatic soap opera for likes and sympathy, PLAGIARIZING the work of other authors and sources prolifically and LYING about where you get your information. All of that simply unfolded, independent of you?

      I think she is trying to admit that she literally can not help but to be a scummy opportunistic person. She tries to mask her evasion as "authentic", or implies "we ALL care what other people think", well ok, but not to the pathological and destructive extent of a narcissist. Did you notice how she made no effort to refute anything Sarbdeep said. None at all.

    5. The "ammunition" she is referring to, that apparently an unnamed gentleman is trying to kill her with (the dramatics!), is the abuse she inflicted on him, and the lies she told. Which she doesnt even deny. She tries to say that sarb took advantage of her "vulnerabilities" when that is exactly what sarb (and SO MANY others) so eloquently explained teal does/is doing. She is a textbook Cluster B personality. Like a totally helpless extreme end of the spectrum case.

    6. "She tries to say that sarb took advantage of her "vulnerabilities" when that is exactly what sarb (and SO MANY others) so eloquently explained teal does/is doing."

      I just wanted to add to this for emphasis on the ridiculousness of it, that even independent of her "haters" claims...TEAL HAS PUT HERSELF ON CAMERA DOING JUST THAT for the whole world to see. Fallon, Cameron, Sarb, and others were humiliated and thrashed publicly because they trusted teal with their vulnerabilities, and if they didnt, she made some up and tried to GIVE THEM vulnerabilities (trying to convince cameron she was suicidal, or trying to convince them they committed atrocious acts against teal or each other in some other dimension, or underwent serious trauma they "dont remember"). She is a freak. A very very sick and deluded person.


    People have been sending me screenshots of some of the fallout in Teal Tribe. I haven't had a lot of time and lots to go through, but I think I've isolated some of the biggies. I'll continue to add to this as I have the time and wherewithal.

    First, I think we've all seen teal's admission that she's not, in fact, a super-psychic, with every form of psychic ability known to man, but here it is again.

    It's honestly hard to know what this little ploy was meant to accomplish. I guess it threw a little sand in the works. It worked, to some degree, and some tribers stayed in that weird state of denial longer than others.

    She retracted that statement and posted this word pretzel instead.

    She's so brave.

    As we all know, and knew before the fact, links to Sarbdeep's blog were quickly forbidden and made a banning offense. Here is Blake's justification. It's a remarkably long, byzantine stream of consciousness ramble, so it's in 3 screenshots here, here, and here.

    I find it amusing that Blake posts the link to Wikipedia to justify his definition of trollery, but then uses a completely different definition. His definition relies on Teal Tribe admins being able to read minds, to know whose are already made up.

    He also would prefer that people abandon logic and reason and make decisions about what they choose to read, based on how it makes them "feel."

    Censoring Sarbdeep's feel-bad post did not go over well with some tribers.

    Admin Derek also took a stab at justifying their censorship here and here.

    To really drive his point home, he provides this quote from teal:

    "I have a request for anyone wanting to practice compassion... I honestly think it would be good practice to go to those slander articles or even this recent one people think Sarbdeep wrote and insert your name every time they put my name in the article and see how you'd be feeling after reading them that way!"

    I could do that, I guess, but I expect all I'd feel reading, say, Sarbdeep's post like that is that he has me confused with someone else – someone who behaves in a manner that I would not. If I did behave like that, I'd hope someone would love me enough to call me on it and allow me to make amends.

    1. Teal Bosworth/Scott/Swan/Gicqueau is to Authenticity what a religious terrorist is to God. Uses the term like a whore, to serve her vendettas and propaganda, twisted at every turn to embody her fluid definition of it.

      Sarbdeep, La Vaughn, Cameron, the people here and elsewhere exposing her truth are, quite ironically, standing for Authenticity. Real Authenticity.

      The poor souls that still eat her lies up may or may not realize it. Either they are truly naive, or they are just enamoured with some superficial aspect of her and choosing to blindly follow under the guise of spirituality.

      I'm glad to see people taking back their power, learning to make better choices in the future regarding who to take as a leader, and sharing their experience with others. It's a common lesson and I guess people like Teal are just the ones to teach it.

    2. hahaha, this is spot on:

      "I could do that, I guess, but I expect all I'd feel reading, say, Sarbdeep's post like that is that he has me confused with someone else – someone who behaves in a manner that I would not. If I did behave like that, I'd hope someone would love me enough to call me on it and allow me to make amends"

      But like so many other narcissists or BPD types, she just cant fathom the idea that other people do not operate like her. Thinking that other people all work in a similar way (ulterior motives, lying, putting on an act to get what they want, etc) is how they justify being the way they are. That is why teal really THINKS this is "authenticity". She lacks the capacity to understand what that even is.

    3. openeyes: where is the quote from?

    4. In Lavaugns comment above mine, last paragraph :)

    5. Ahhhh, now i get it. I was so confused. Teal couldn't have written this, could she? :D
      Yes I agree. Sometimes I scratch my head and wonder if T. can grasp the concept of authenticity at all. I guess she thinks that talking about private stuff is being authentic and that her true wishes for money, fame and celebrity status is a good reason to screw so many people over or use them like a self-service store for connections, money, attention and nice sounding brand names. Or maybe the one Teal doesn't know about the other Teal and they all switch constantly. Sarbdeep if you are reading this here: does she have multiple personalities or is she acting like child sometimes, then dominatrix, then like a holy long haired monk based on her wish to act that way cause people will react a certain way? Might be interesting to address in one of your blogs.


      But you know after few seconds contemplating about it i come to senses again and remember that she is laughing about her "stupid sheep fans" for being so stupid. So she knows what she is doing but never experienced true openess and honesty towards another person because she has to fucking dominate everybody who has 2 legs. She is ok with animals though.

  52. The fact that Teal was trying to get her followers to believe that Sarbdeep's blog post was fake only proves how guilty she is.

    1. Omg... she just can't stop lying, can she?

      When asked how she overcame her past, at 12:12 Teal states:

      "So what happened is, I actually developed a process- I've now- I'm publishing an entire book on it and it's released this Fall. I've called it 'The Completion Process.' But instead of diminishing triggers, it capitalizes on them. It basically uses them as the doorway to find the memory that is causally linked so that you can find some resolution, it's like the ultimate form of soul retrieval, basically. So I started applying this process on myself. Let's just face it, on a spiritual level I'm a little bit of a, shall we say, Nutty Professor - I'm like the guy who tests all of the stuff he invents on himself, so I was like, 'If I'm gonna put this out to the world, I gotta try it. Like, this has gotta be my religion, essentially, doing this.' And I was able to stop all of my dissociative triggers. I was able to make it so that when I do encounter triggers, I'm actually consciously aware of what is being triggered, the emotional reaction doesn't do what is does."

      First of all, I thought she developed it TO heal herself because other standard healing modalities weren't working for her (8:50)? (And here: But then she says she invented it, and figured she should try it out before putting it out to the world? WTF even??

      Second, she claims that she "was able to stop all of her dissociative triggers." That's funny, because her 'Great Expectations' blog, posted just a few weeks ago says otherwise. She goes into great detail about being triggered and going into a state of dissociation:

      "I looked out the window to find a deer that had been hit by a car and had subsequently sought refuge in my backyard. It was a trigger on so many levels for me, given my childhood experience that I went into a state of dissociation. ... Having spent a day in that vibrational set point, I ended up having post-traumatic nightmares with sleep paralysis again. ... The entire experience of the day and night was like being back in those fragile years just after escaping, when I was grappling daily with complex post traumatic disorder."


      "I was able to make it so that when I do encounter triggers, I'm actually consciously aware of what is being triggered, the emotional reaction doesn't do what is does."

      Huh?? Excuse me, but a trigger sets off a memory *causing* an emotional reaction. If there's no emotional reaction, then there is no trigger!

      She just talks in circles and babbles on without saying much. What concerns me is that she's peddling this pseudo-psychology babble to veterans who suffer from PTSD. She has no business or credibility placing people's mental health in her hands when she has no training in psychology whatsoever.

    2. Claiming she can treat PTS is shocking and dangerous, especially because her methods retraumatize people. She's peddling pseudo-psychology and she's peddling pseudo-shamanism, because THIS IS NOT SOUL RETRIEVAL!!!

      Good catch on the deer thingo. And, now we learn, from Sarbdeep's blog, that her method doesn't prevent foie gras related "dissociation" either.

    3. Naty Kropáčková asks:
      is that true?

      Sarb Swan says:
      It's all true Naty Kropáčková and in the spirit of Authenticity and Transparency as Black Swan likes to preach, more will be shared. The tragi-comedy of the whole situation is that the truth is much crazier than what anyone could ever fabricate.

      Thanks god for Sarbdeep.Black Scott's ( she was never a swan in the first place) dominant authoritive self presentation will be finally challenged beyond this group of thinkers here. I think LV you are right. The truth is much darker than we ever can imagine and Sarb knows and will share.

  53. Please check out this post, in answers a LOT of questions and provides amazing context for Teal's recent blogs:


    Let's be clear. Sb who thrives on getting attention, compassion, pity, care, admiration, sexual admiration by putting out half truth, carefully selected by a script's demand, is not authentic. That would be the same as calling The Real Housewives or the Kardashian's authenticity leaders. Everybody knows that they allow cameras into their homes and share very private moments, drama, betrayal and some inspiration IN ORDER FOR getting paid. But overall it follows a script which they act out and mix with personal real and untrue stories to play up for the entertainment of the audience and therefore archiving something like payment, fame and a celebrity status.

    It is certainly true that teal shares very private moment. Let's see: we learnt that her vagina has the shape of fox, that she has multiple personalities, that she is a mess, that she wants fame, money and power, that she thinks all women are jealous of her, that she had a bad past and suffers greatly from it to this day, that she is the embodiment of authenticity, honest to the bone cause she shows us every minute of her life with her posed and carefully selected instagram obsession.

    Can sb tell Teal that sharing private, intimate information doesn't make her authentic? It is revealing like a friend of mine called it. Revealing but not a proof of authenticity. I would call her the first reality show star of the esoteric world but not the authenticity teacher. HAHHAHAHAH are you kidding me. She lies the heck out of situation, she hides her true intention by sending on a regular base perfectly crafted mind fuck blogs which dont make sense at all but sound important. She lies straight in your face by telling horror stories of her past which never happened to get you to pity her and infuse her business with attention. When Teal read Sarbdeep's authentic blog, she threw a fit. She tortured all people around her with performance to get them back into the state of fear, to worry about her, to nurture her so that they can't think clear for just a minute. She was holding a war speech and with a smirky smile she wrote her newest manipulation concept to sell apples as oranges cause apples are always orange. I am telling you.

    Teal nothing will prepaer you of what is to come your way by the actions of a single person who indeed is very private but will limit your pity play and forbid you to dump any more rubbish of his head. One authentic person will expose your inauthentic authenticity movement crap by just talking clear and straight and honest. Learn from him and deal with the consequences. After the next 7 blogs of his, those TEaler's who stay with you and sing you praises on each of your twisted blogs, NEED to be with you because they are blind, like BLIND to obvious manipulation and therefore will learn on day when they wake up.

    I can't wait for Sarbdeep's correction about how "you" came up with the completion process.

    a self obsessed person talking about herself all day long and sells it to others as being authentic. ha
    Authentic my ass.

    1. and in regards to sharing priceless spiritual wisdom: that is the product she is selling, snorted up into her brains from other books and websites and reselling it to you with a copyright claim. You might feel inspired by hearing half truths which she repeats of other teachers out there (those liars as she suggested cause they hide all their shit) but the one thing you dont see is this: if you mix athousandandone teachings, and feed this mix to the masses according to the need to justify her latest bad behavoir and glorify it to her fans, without having a single red thread running thru the whole mess except justifying her powerhungry actions, will create mind chaos in you at some point. Please understand this - it is very important. Good luck to you Tealer as I am writing here for you and not for Teal. Teal knows that she is fucking up all of you. Blake too, her twin brother. Graciella is just delighted ot be suddenly important as personal assistance of a chronic liar and who else is there....the practicioners..good luck guys

  55. Have stopped by and see that the saga continues. Sarbdeep, wow, he sure did nail the "professional consideration" of Hay House as the publisher. I am seeing all the back lash against all things "new age" and it is really sad because there IS something real that then gets associated with people using (and MISTAKING) the most superficial concepts.

    I wrote my editorial opinion to Hay House because I feel and have felt that Teal is what "they" think we want and deserve.

    "I have been following Teal Scott Swan for several years. She uses all the tools of the youtube culture.

    I was disappointed that Hay House is becoming more and more associated with the trivial and possibly dangerous narcissists who pass for new age gurus. It makes me know that your relevance is fading as a source of real, quality material.

    Teal Scott is far form a spiritual luminary. If she is the source of new books (nice advance by the way for her) of the "Completion Process" , she herself is half baked. And the name was already taken.

    I guess you think I and the rest of readers as an audience deserve Teal Swan?

    Do you see "us" as seeking superficial titilation from glam trauma drama and hype? I stop and many others have stopped buying what is sold here.

    A "PROCESS" based on LIES AND DECEIT is not "self help" full.

    Former husband has shared his discussion with Hay House about the "Teal Swan" value. It confirms all......."

  56. Maggie is back :D

    Can i just complain about the silly blogger comment section. It is a nightmare to keep up with conversations, so annoying. Rant over.

    1. Yeah, once you get over 200 comments, they roll over and it's a pain. If you look at the post, top and bottom, I have links to both pages of comments. It makes it a little easier than trying to load them all onto one page.

    2. Thanks for the welcome.
      I recall you (Golden?? are you here as Rikitiki?? Elena and of course LaVaughn) with affection!!!

      I wrote this idea for a "Capra kinda" story in Feb 2014...
      I am calling it "Bonne Chance". It is based on an English movie "The Halfway House 1944).

      "The scene is in a small valley just off the highway in this time.

      A woman who is a famous celebrity in the New Age is broken. She has been accused of plagirism and also her biography has been recognized as a false claim. Her 3rd husband has written his own tell all book. Her followers denounced her and she feels hatred at every turn.

      Her mind is shattered and she careens away from the city with intention for suicide. She has enough pills to do the job. Maybe she might just drive off a cliff or head on collide with another vehicle. Her mind is enraged by thoughts of betrayal.

      Her car inexplicably breaks down. in the middle of nowhere she has no cell phone reception. A beautiful old Mercedes appears with a chauffeur. He is from a nearby hotel named..."Bonne Chance". She hitches a ride to a mysterious INN that seems to rise like a mist near the sea. It is a breathtaking day and she is happy for the first time she recalls. She feels peace for no good reason.

      The people there all have an unusual aura. There are many characters there. One is a famous celebrity from the music world (Satanist). Another famous astrophysicist (Materialist), another has a fatal disease (Atheist), and they each have a story to tell.

      The sweet owners themselves have an odd sort of etherial charm that cannot be adequately described except in pictures. Strange things are going on. It is like a happy fairy tale.

      Growing fruit and vegies never seen in this climate abound. Tame animals who communicate take her in hand.
      Books never seen anywhere that have the real meanings of life explained.

      She loosens her hold on her life and gently forgets her traumas and self loathing.

      The heroine learns all the stories of all the guests that reveal the ability to make changes and take on Life. The visitors are all different, but they realize they shared one intention: suicide could be an answer for their mistaken paths.

      Over the course of the play, we discover that this is the Hostel in the Borderland where suicides recuperate from their false beliefs.

      All heal and check out leaving with a new Presence: the ever allowing LOVE that heals through REAL self understanding.

      The dramedy of the ending of souls' narcissm in the between that alters before and the ever after....

      There is a miracle of the all encompassing benevolence of consciousness.

  57. HI Maggie, indeed. I am just not shining golden light on this liar anymore but battle the cobra like a mungo :D

    Let's hope Teal goes back into the desert and awakens out of her horror plan. But knowing Teal I suspect that she will pretend a break down after few blogs of Sarbdeep and then praise that she had an awakening and is a new person, thanks to Sarb. Her abusive creativity have no end. One day she will claim that Blake was Jesus and joined her on this mission and the Tealers will desire autographs by Blasus. No integrity was ever installed in her unless towards her own celebrity status. And this makes her so scary.

  58. I was sure to have left the mailing list but this appeared in my inbox:

    "Dear Tribe,
    We have seen a lot of turmoil this month in the spiritual communities, even spiritual teachers have turned to fighting eachother. This baffles me as teachings seem completely contradictory to people's actions. I wont name names, because this is a message of Unity. I feel so strongly that we need each other's support in this great time of transition upon our earth. How can we fight each other when such great obstacles are ahead of us, without our hand in their creation. So not only have we started setting up independent support groups through the Teal Tribe in every city we travel to but we are also Uniting with the Communities of Other Tribes. Let us not be the Teal Tribe, or The Spirit Science, Medicine Tribe....let us be the ALL TRIBE :) Below is one such extension of our communities. A gathering of Teal Swan and Ralph Smart Communities in Long Beach March 13th. Let us Unite and if you feel inspired to create a Teal Tribe meetup in your city through either Facebook or let me know so we can share your group and build our systems of true support.

    with love
    Blake Dyer"

    In other words, "Teal has been exposed by a number of people as a fraud, including her ex-husband from whom she's taken her name, and somehow this is supposed to make you all upset and concern all of you, because Teal and I are upset, so let's not even acknowledge that Teal has been caught red handed and is facing the law of cause and effect, but let's all pretend this is happening to everyone right now because of the cosmos, play victims and keep on blindly following and worshipping Teal."

    1. The nerve of him trying to manipulate Teal's followers omg. :O He's basically guilting them into "supporting" her = turning a blind eye to the truths that are being revealed about her. Like, 'This "fighting" saddens me and is not what "spirituality" should be about. Don't add to the turmoil, guys. What the world needs now is love and unity.' *rolling my eyes*

      Bless Sarbdeep for speaking up and for not yielding. As the LEADER, for crying out loud!, of an authenticity movement she's doing wrong to herself and to her followers by carefully constructing (lying, manipulating, exaggerating) her narrative under the guise of authenticity. It's sickening. If she actually wants to practice (real) authenticity, she can start by admitting to her plagiarisms and rectifying those mistakes..


    3. "Let us not be the Teal Tribe.."

      "..if you feel inspired to create a Teal Tribe meetup"

      The ALL TRIBE sure lasted.

    4. No, sorry. They gave the game away when the named this "Teal Tribe." Worse still, when they enabled the words "tealer" and "anti-teal." This is a group organized around TEAL, not around greater principles of spiritual community.

    5. Yeah, when they started "tealing" everything I became suspicious. It became clearer that people were just numbers and the glorification of this one woman was the basis of everything.

    6. Teal just lost a chunk of followers. This is blakes flowery way of pretending its anything other than what it is.

      THey now have to regrow their fan base, and will piggy back off the (much better) reputations of other spiritual teachers in order to try and improve her standing. She needs to smooze up to Ralph Smart and whoever else she can, in her VERY typical and predictable way.

      Personally, I think it will backfire in a huge way, with her followers talking about low vibration entities, idolizing teals victimhood, and teals inability to be honest or kind for any length of time. The "followers" of other groups are much less fanatical and damaged and I suspect they will be able to see the red flags.

      Good idea blake! A system of "true" support (oh, you mean blind eyes and quiet mouths) in this "transition on Earth". Oh wait, you are saying there is now a transition happening again (sigh), so its more urgent than ever that we come together and give "true" ONE person...who is supposed to be the LEADER? How is she a leader of anything? You guys are tasked with coddling her ridiculous bullshit, she "needs" to be catered to or else she becomes "triggered" (plugging in appliances, human stepping stools- Im looking at you Graciela-, compression jackets, fake seizures, taking care of her son so she can flit around and pose for instagram. Hell, being ALONE with her own son is a trigger)...and you all insist her processes "work". Its amazing.

      Or maybe I've got it wrong and all of the above is hella spiritual. Im pretty sure I am not wrong.

      "This baffles me as teachings seem completely contradictory to people's actions. I wont name names, because this is a message of Unity"

      Blake, its baffled us this entire time as well. But since you cant, I WILL name names. So much of what teal DOES directly contradicts what she SAYS. And if you pay attention, you will notice that what she says changes over time to suit her current drama. But he knows this, he knows it probably better than anyone. I dont think he believes it any more than teal does. But what would he do at this point? His brain has been twisted and manipulated for years, and as Sarbdeep said, teal openly stated she "uses him between boyfriends". She also cant stay faithful to them when she gets one, so I imagine Blake gets plenty of what he wants, she is "between" boyfriends often enough.

    7. You reminded me, Openeyes, of something I wanted to mention after reading Sarbdeep's blog. So, he has confirmed that teal sleeps with Blake when she's between men who will buy her things. Kind of puts a different spin on this disgusting blog post, in which she made HIS private life public. This is from December of November of 2013, post-Fallon, pre-Sarbdeep, a post entitled "The Grand Decision."

      "Blake finally admitted to himself today, after ten years of hoping, that we would never be in a romantic relationship together again. We have followed a pattern for the last ten years, where we are like brother and sister (who are also best friends) when I am in a relationship with another man. But when I am 'available' again, he tries to close the gap between us and become lovers again. We had a community meeting today to discuss his feelings and he admitted that he has always harbored the hope. But it is not to be born, for the same reasons that our romantic relationship ended in the first place. Blake is not inherently the person I have always wanted to be with. He has to become someone else to be that man. And he fails at it, which is good because a relationship where you can never really be yourself is inevitable torture. For me to be with Blake, I would have to deny my truest desires in order to be lovingly committed to him for who he really is. And I fail at it, which is good because a relationship where I can never really let myself have what I want and need, is inevitable torture. When we are romantically together, he always feels like a failure and I always feel like a bitch. There is nothing worse than a relationship that chronically feeds a poor self-concept.

      Blake has gone off into town to journal at a coffee shop after his realization. Inside I know that our bond is deeper than anyone understands. We became each other’s family when both of us felt like we had none. No romantic bond or lack there of, could ever strip us from each other’s hearts and lives. We are like reunited litter-mates. But it doesn’t stop me from being nervous of how this realization will affect the relationship between us. Deep down, I know that this will enable him to release the clasp he has on me, which is currently disallowing the love he wants so badly to find. He will find a woman who is capable of loving him for exactly who he is right here and now, instead of for the potential of who he could be. I can only hope that she will have a place in her heart for me."

      I suspect it makes a bit harder for Blake to really "get" that he and teal will never be a couple again, when she keeps hopping into bed with him. Sounds sort of, um, emotionally confusing, no?

    8. Oh for sure! She strings him along that way. I think he knows too much for her to ever really "let" him move on and stop manipulating him with sex.

    9. It paints quite a different picture, going from "he pursues me" to a cold "I use him between boyfriends". Which basically shows the true nature of this woman. Entirely selfish, cold, condescending and mean in her heart. I can see why she tries to mindfuck her exes into submission and control so as not to have them want to expose her true nature to others.

  59. After the inundation of cringe-inducing photos of him and Teal "loving" on each other since the inception of their relationship, I couldn't help but notice that Ale hasn't posted one in nearly six days...


    I start to feel sorry for them, but then I remember all the things that Sarbdeep said, and also how he chose Teal over his own children. Teal, herself, even let it slip that he confessed he had fallen in love with her WHILE HE WAS MARRIED. It's just disgusting that she tried to paint a pretty picture about their "innocent" love story in her 'The PURITY of Union' blog post.

    1. "It's just disgusting that she tried to paint a pretty picture about their "innocent" love story in her 'The PURITY of Union' blog post."

      good point, blairgilbert. I dont understand how this escapes the attention of so many people. Or how she basically lectures and sends passive aggressive messages in her blogs to Ale's wife and kids. I doubt Ale appreciated reading (and you know he did)the kinds of things teal said about him, and Im certain he, too, has been spoonfed plenty of bullshit that only served teals agenda and perhaps some of that became more clear for him.

      He could still have a relationship with his kids, but it "triggers" and "torments" her to even see their pictures because they dont like the woman that hurt their mother and essentially took their father. They are ones dealing with the fallout of that, not teal. No shit. Its all white knights and fancy hotels and gifts for her (dont forget "donations"). She is offended by ales closeness with them, and says as much in her twisted blogs. She cant conceal her spite and selfishness (because it is PATHOLOGICAL).

      I have a kid. And if I was dating someone who acted as though they were in competition with him, I would dump them so fast. If I dated someone who shamed or talked shit about his dad, I would dump them equally as fast. My kid doesnt need that sort of attitude. Making him feel like something is bad about loving his dad or having a good relationship is hurtful or somehow disloyal? If I dated someone who tensed up at the thought of my love for my child, I would think that person was very sick. Teal IS sick.

      He still has time to save himself (to a degree anyway, no matter what happens at this point, his name will be smeared because thats just how it works with her). To realize that any woman who guilt trips you or feels so possessive over you that your childs LOVE for you is a threat...well thats no woman at all. Most women (MOTHERS especially, as teal supposedly is), would view you as being a loving father as a POSITIVE attribute, not a threat or something to seek pity for. She needs to "control" the men she is with, and a common tactic is isolation. Which she is doing to Ale in her standard way. Get out while you can, Gecko. She is a succubus.

  60. Crazy lost woman and dangerous to others and herself. The men she attracts seem to be equally lost and dangerous to themselves and others, at least for the time they're hoodwinked.

  61. Teal is bats. She is an energy vampire and I used to be on Teal Tribe. This is how poisonous she is. I can't even look at her now without getting sick. She istwisted and warped, and the only people on Teal Tribe before long will be the ones just like her. I joined trying to understand people better, did ordered people and to have some peace for what happened in my life. While I learned some things (who better to understand disordered manipulators than one herself) Well I did my time and now I'm free! There is no resolution for a narcissistic thief. I will not support that. I will not waste my life reading her twisted mind games or toxic teachings. Sad thing is, she was fine as a teacher in the beginning before she started blogging and could no longer conceal her personality structure.
    I will not visit there again but I do look forward to Sarbs blogs.

  62. Steal Swan Tealing everything. It's just too much.

  63. I hope so. I could learn more from my dog, in a more peaceful and simple way: he is a better teacher, and in more alignment.

  64. Go to Teal Tribe if you want to be around abusers who try to warp your mind. But then what is different about watching Ask Teal? Oh yes, their styles of abuse. On Teal Tribe, which is supposedly a healing spiritual forum you will get called a cunt, bitch whatever....etc.
    of course she doesn't want it to be a good place for anyone anymore. If she has to deal with "haters" why shouldn't her fans, while she goes around saying she's putting money into Teal Eye, when really she spends it on herself....chchch. I can't imagine her wanting the place of central gossip being closed down, or one of the places of informative information about Teal when it may destroy her fame-success. Oh no. And to say she steals and lies and now....we can't be mean because that horrible story she told MIGHT be true? I am disappointed, disgustedand in revulsion. Yes, all the things I want from a spiritual teacher on a semi-regular basis.

    1. I think it's safe to say that she's actively sewing dissension at this point. It makes for a good distraction, keep people arguing about identity issues instead of challenging her on things that are coming to light about herself. I mean, have you seen this? Not going over real well.

    2. Sorry, I mean this video. That other is upsetting for whole other reasons.

  65. I saw part of the racism video. I could stomach watching the whole thing. I literally felt like I was going to throw up. I mean, someone else here called it--she will ignore this whole thing and go on to distracting everyone's attention on "other matters", to get people all stirred up. That's exactly what she's trying to do. That blog with her holding four guys hands behind her boyfriends back made me nauseous and feel so terrible for Sarb too. I mean, I could understand if she was being genuine and trying to sort her problems out, but she's not. She's doing what a narcisstic person does and manipulating the hell out of everyone, and she won't face it! Or stop. I'm not sure her pathology. I knew forever she was lying about a lot because I do have good intuition, but I passed it off because some of the stuff was helping people. Of course her blogs about going out of body were always over the top for attention.... But Now it's gone too far. She's hurting tons of people in the process and negatively impacting lives. If she wants to teach, ok maybe (not now) but...before her thievery, lives, cheating, polyamourous ways or what hell ever it is, the distasteful energy draining blogs, the celebrity style train wreck reality YouTube show star lifestyle....The Instagram, constant drama. Really. She needs to just stop. Like, really stop.

    But I haven't looked at the other link, or first video. Is it as bad as the second?

  66. Okay, it was! I watched the first part and basically, what she says causes schzioprenhia, is the same thing she does to people. Oh my god. Face palm. So many haters.

  67. Distract those who are hot on Teal's trail by

    1. showing your Congo bongos in the ask Teal video

    2. Talk about a huge conflict in society "racism" to get the minds busy

    3. start to actually reply to people who have a question for you to show how present and caring you are. Here is just one example of many since Sarbdeep's blog turned up. Replies after replies by the queen that usually never replies. ( see comment by Amr Al-shura)

    4. Unite with the tribes of the neighbor kingdoms like the Smart-Tribe and the Spirit-Science-Tribe to get fresh blood and fill the empty spots which currently occur. Later on, dominate both of them.

    5. Find another man like Michael James (good friend of Sarbdeep who introduced both to each other) who is willing to set up an event around Sarbdeep's corner with Teal Swan. Read the part about meeting Teal - very telling. Michael is so into this collaboration that he is so naughty and posted this event on Sarbdeep's exposing fb article (which he calls his good friend) cause he thought "it would be a great time to advertise it" here. It is no longer there.

    "When I first met Teal Swan back in 2014 we instantly connected. We met through my good friend (and her then-husband) Sarb Swan and I remember the moment clearly. In St James Park, London, we got talking and I found myself instantly at ease with her, saying way more than I’m used to on a first meeting. I remember commenting that she was one of the most intuitive people I’d met and we both shared a feeling of familiarity like old friends coming back together. The three of us had a great relationship together which continued until their marriage ended a year or so later. But that’s another story."

    (I didn't mean to advertise his adventures with Black Swan but I thought it shows clearly how Black Swan is working and was working behind Sarbdeep's back to recrute new man to be at service to her. The men seems to share the same experience whilst introduced to Black Swan - always the same algorithm)


    Power resides where people believe it resides. It is a trick, a shadow on the wall and a very small person can cast a very large shadow. It is called shadow work :D

    1. This fits right in (the link is

      A fan of teals writes a blog wherein she describes:

      1. being stared at by teal in the rear view mirror for the duration of the car ride.

      " For most of the car ride both Teal & I were looking at each other from my rearview mirror. As she looked into my eyes, I just knew that we recognize each other. "

      That seems common with teal. SHe makes prolonged eye contact, and people think its special because of the titles she has given herself. She forces a bond immediately.

      2. THIS is interesting:

      "... despite the fact that she picked up on a lot of entities that were lingering around the building, she loved it and said I did a great job picking out the right venue. Again it happened when she met the bodyguards I chose for her, she pulled me aside and pointed to Avonte and said that she really liked him."

      So, she was thrilled with the entities, and again, while with Sarbdeep, is pulling people aside to get her closer to other men. She is just gross.

      3. Here, teal's fan let slip that teal instructs peoples input in advance. Says teal:

      " At some point during the workshop I want you to turn to Stephanie and tell her to look around and to notice what she created, what she manifested and how she brought everyone together in one space"

      Surprised? Me either.

      4. Teal was "triggered" by something at some point, and it has an effect on Steph:

      "The entire time I felt as if someone was hammering my head from the inside of my crown upward. Even still, I pushed through & tried my best to ignore how crappy I felt. I wanted to enjoy the time we had together."

      " Yet once I got in the car I couldn’t cope anymore the pain got worse."

      No word on whether or not teal was staring at her for this car trip as well, but:

      " I was nauseated, my eye sight was super sensitive and so was my hearing. Every noise was like another hammer in my head, I felt like I was going to come out of my skin. As we dropped them off at the hotel, I ran to the hotel lobby bathroom and purged my life out before going home and having Mike take care of me while I was sick."

      This fan doesnt think teal's manipulative behavior is the source of her discomfort, but being around teal is exhausting, draining, confusing, etc. I know because my own mother is a teal type, and Stephanie just described the 17 years of chronic, sickening migraines I experienced while in her home (especially any time she was upset, because she would focus it on me like a goddamn laser beam). They miraculously stopped happening within a week of moving out. I dont know where she is now, but i hope she has learned the truth about teal since. Her post is so hopeful and sweet, but it made me so sad to read.

  68. The one major reason I keep returning to observe Teal is MY RAGE. Making her "legitimate" as a spiritual luminary allows this extremely destructive usury of others to be "authorized" for public consumption.

    I am addicted to hating narcissm...OK? Maybe not but that is where I still stand.

    I struggle with letting go of the "wish" that the love I wanted might be real. We who have stayed in relationships with people like Teal are addicted. We get "goodies" of an internal drug rush.

    We were children of narcissits. We were raised in a culture that idolizes the flamboyant way these people "don't care a hoot" so can just do whatever. But we have to JUST say NO. Love is what we thought they gave and the way we felt when they were courting us was heaven.

    Adoration stimulates an internal endogenous drug and we easily are addicted because? and yet only we can get better. If we believe we have been adored (and narcissists are SO GOOD at this simulated appreciation), we WANT it again....

    That we can believe someone on youtube or at the front of the room "adores" us (that PSYCHIC TEACHER) and can intuit us and know us is the way narcissists can move all across the computer screens into bookstores and on stage with impunity. WE BELIEVE we are loved and WANT that "new age" make belief lover.

    The other day I saw a film "My King" 2015 (French with English subtitles). It captured for me the emotional rollar coaster and crazy making charge of the relationship with a narcissist. It captured the way these "Kings and Queens" gaslight us so we end up feeling/looking like WE are crazy. I could really empathize and highly recommend it.

    The there is a a South Korean film Hansel and Gretel 2007, film I have not seen but a review has great quotes:

    "One moment they were a dream come true, a Prince Charming, a Fair Damsel (who is always in distress but makes you feel heroic), an alluring Siren who only has eyes for you, a Venus or Adonis, a goddess or god who bestows their favours on you, a Casanova who seems as seduced by you as you are by them… and then suddenly, and it usually feels sudden even when it is a slowly creeping suddenness, they turn into an Ogre, a Witch, a vengeful god or goddess due to you displeasing them, and you are wrecked on the sharp rocks around them which you never saw or turned into a pig (Circe) who must now serve them, or the seducer leaves taking your heart with them and you will never get it back.

    The fairytale dream turns into a sinister nightmare. A cautionary tale. This happens over and over again. They switch roles all the time, so the witch turns back into a good fairy, the Ogre turns back into a Prince… you’ve seen their real face, but now you’re confused, maybe it was an hallucination, maybe you’re crazy....."

  69. Wow. Thanks for sharing OpenEyes. I was always wondering how Teal rewards her super fans who organize events for her and Blakey boy. I always assumed that she tells them for sure to have been a husband or wife of hers in one of the past lives first of all. I then assume that she is telling each of them, that she finally found a long lost soul friends and that he and she is crucial in the raising of earth's frequency by organizing these events for her. I also assume that she is flirting the heck with men for sure, fearless and secure eye contact during the whole event.

    Is is very interesting that somehow she manages to win over the friends of her ex housemates or ex lovers or ex husbands which she met whilst still in an intact relationship with those, and then actually manages to use them as business partners. Pretty skilled in that regard.

  70. It came to light that she slept with a man who cheated on his wife six times. Her a woman who cheated on Sarbs. Uses the guy who runs her business during downtime. But still has the nerve to write yet another blog about innocent children not liking the person who made their father leave their lifes. Dude just up and left just because she was better looking and their the ones who are wrong.

    What a joke this woman is making out her followers. Shes proving why the world is such a bad place. You can lie your ass off as long as the people love for your flaws.

    1. I would take issue with the idea that teal is better looking than Ale's ex-wife. I've seen pictures. She's beautiful. She also looks like a much more substantial woman.

      That blog... I've only read bits of it. I can't get through the whole, horrible, self-plagiarized thing. Maybe later, when I find my seasick pills.

      She thinks she should be dispensing parenting advice. Really. Because solid psychological findings are all bollocks. Okay. Sure. I'm sure her methods are the valid ones. Divorce child's father, move him into a back room and immediately take up with new men. Show no caution or patience when introducing child to new romantic partners. Instead, deluge the child with a rotating cast of men at a cyclic rate, all the time lecturing everyone else on the dangers of "transient caregivers," but insisting that he's perfectly happy about it all. Okay, sure. She clearly knows better than pfft, all those psychologists. They're crazy.

      We are talking about a woman who thinks that rules that restrict diving at pools are a bad idea. They interfere with children's fun and their right to learn that unsafe dives off the sides of pools, or in shallow areas are a bad idea. So what if some children die or become crippled. It's the price you have to pay in a free society. And, why let potential death and paralysis interfere with children's experiential learning about the "law of attraction."

      This woman wants to write a parenting book. Sure. Fine.

    2. And what in the hell does this mean?

      "Separate out the peanut butter from the jelly and question the jelly. In other words, separate out the events that occur from the meaning you interpret from and assign to the event then question the meaning instead of assuming it. Take off those glasses that you put on so long ago… And prepare for your whole world to become a whole lot clearer."

      Interrogate your jelly with some new glasses on, and all will become clear. Okay. Sure.

      Yeah. It's the world that's crazy. Not her.

    3. I don't think Teal looks better just saying from Vile prospective. Younger, other guys want her, he's old she's hip to him. Its just crazy how her servants can justify her words. What kid wouldn't be mad at a father that slept with other women to end up leaving? She's mad that his wife is winning in court but keeps writing things like this. A judge could read even this one blog and say she's not good to be around them. And no she shouldn't write a parenting book. All she's done is make her son brainwashed like her servants. She doesn't even spend time with the kid how would she know how he feels about her sleeping around.

  71. I agree with you all. I was abhorred to find out about the parenting book. And LaVaughn you have a good point....she's letting new people come into her child's life, just like her parents did to her, to justify her career, the fact that she can't be left alone in the same room with him because it's too triggering and she could seizure. But drive to go pick up her new boyfriend at the airport, tell cab drivers to pull over in the snow because clearly she's a better driver? This woman is a classic narcisstic sociopath. The rules do apply to her obvoisly, but to everyone else, yes--listen up. Especially people raising children....because God knows she watches it being done to her child while she is budy doing other things.

  72. I meant the rules don't apply to her OBVIOUSLY

  73. The Black Swan speaks: If you haven't seen them, I've posted some screenshots of teal's response to Sarbdeep's post. These can be found here and here.

    As ever, it disgusts me that she uses the term "Anti-Teal." You're with her or you're against her, folks. You're in the in-group or you're a barbarian at the gate. And lest we forget, it's all about teal. Teal Tribe is her "house" and you had better be nice to her, or you're out.

    I also find it hilarious that the example she reached for is about calling out "shitty" parents, since she does that constantly. What doesn't she blame her parents for, publicly and relentlessly? In fairness, I don't think she's spray-painted it on their house. She's merely used her "public figure" megaphone to announce their "shittiness" to anyone who will listen.

    Once again, as she did when she promoted my "anti-teal" post in her blog, she COULD refute all the points raised by Sarbdeep, but it just doesn't feel right.

    Will someone please explain to teal what the word "slander" means? Oh, why do I bother. You can't shake her on her misuse of language, "ironically," as she might say.

    I love this: "Sarb's perspective about what happened to split us up and mine could not be further from different."

    So, they're exactly the same?

    1. "Given that I defended Sarb in this very group".

      Guess she forgot about "defense is an act of war" that time.

      But in fact I think you can be forgiven for missing that defense of Sarb as it was the bit part in a statement mis-directing and shaming followers. Which showed either the extent to which she will lie and manipulate OR the utter paucity of her claimed exceptional psychic powers.

      Either way one lie just covers the next, on and on. No wonder she has to produce so much content, all the blogs and videos. Before someone spots they are standing in garbage she has to dump the next load of garbage on them.

  74. I would like to promote the following little document called:

    Fallacies: The art of Mental Trickery and Manipulation.

    Dear Tealer, and dear clear thinker, if you have a minute or two, please dive into this pdf and have a little read. Please pay special attention to the section called:

    "44 Foul Ways to Win an Argument"

    Use Teal as good example to find each of the 44 in action. You will be rewarded at least 44 examples how Teal Bosworth, Scott, Swan, Black Swan, soon to be Gicqueau used every one of them on you. If you are a Tealer you better study more careful because it never crossed your mind that you might been played with by Teal.

    Have fun ( :
