A few of Teal's most interesting videos are embedded below:
How to Raise Your Frequency and Increase Your Vibration - Teal Swan
Consciousness and vibrational frequency go hand in hand. When you're in a low frequency, you're in a decreased state of consciousness and your perception is limited. When you're in a high frequency, you're in an increased state of consciousness and your perception is heightened.
The lower your vibrational frequency, the less you are able to comprehend because your ego is restricting the Flow of Life Force/source Energy and Intuition/Love through your mind and body. The higher your vibrational frequency, the more you are able to comprehend because you are allowing a greater Flow of Life Force through your mind and body.
In this episode, Teal explains that raising your frequency means move to a better feeling, more positive emotion. She also explains that the trump card of all things that raise frequency is focus... nothing is more important than the thoughts you are thinking and whatever you're paying attention to/focusing on. You can not focus on things that cause you to feel bad, and hold a high vibration.
Teal then goes on to describe eleven steps that you can take to increase your frequency.
What Is Shadow Work? And How Do I Do Shadow Work? - Teal Swan
Teal explains that there is only one type of energy in this universe, which we can call... Source Energy. There is not a source of Good and a source of Evil or a source of Light and a source of Dark. What we call negative or evil or shadow, is merely the RESISTANCE to source energy.
So you could say shadow is just absence of light. Another way of saying that is, shadow is the vibration within you that does not resonate at the same frequency as source energy.
Thoughts dictate the vibration a person holds. So shadow work means addressing and releasing the thoughts and beliefs which are holding you in opposition to source energy and source perspective, the part of us that is not a match to source vibration and perspective.
In this episode, Teal describes two helpful ways to approach one's "shadow". And she reminds us that it is useless to run from shadows within us because, just like our physical shadows, they follows us anywhere we go until we shed light upon them.
How To Trust Yourself - Teal Swan
Self trust can be summed up as the assured reliance on your own character, ability, strength, and truth. This sounds straightforward enough. The problem is, most of us have spent our lives listening to our parents, our government, our teachers and our bosses. We have been raised with the idea that we do not know what is best for ourselves. Instead, we are taught that other people who "know more than we do"; know what is best for us. Because of this, we choose what we think we are supposed to choose. We try to live according to what our society says is "right". We allow ourselves to be who we are told that we are; and we are caught in an endless struggle of seeking approval and reaching for recognition. The result is that we loose trust in ourselves.
Teal Swan - How To See Auras
The first thing you must grasp about auras is that you do not have to be “special“ or “gifted“ to see auras. All people have the capability of experiencing auras. In this episode, Teal explains that the aura is essentially a field of subtle, luminous electro magnetic radiation creating and emanating from a physical thing. She dispels with a great many common aura myths. Teal then explains why most people currently can’t see auras and outlines some simple techniques to help us begin to see them.
What are The Akashic Records? (Part 1 About Akashic Records) - Teal Swan
Teal explains that the Akashic records is the human way of understanding that every thought that has ever been thought, exists. Therefore, one aspect of collective consciousness is a vibrational "record" of every soul and its journey throughout all universes that ever have been before now and all future potentials originating from now.
She describes the Akasha as being like a library, where the levels (or floors) of that library in the universe are dimensions. The information in each dimension corresponds to the frequency of that specific dimension. So to access specific information in the Akashic Records, one must first become the same vibration as the dimension which contains that specific information.
Teal then explains a bit about what information is contained in each dimension.
Teal has been watching Rob Bryanton, from whom she borrows his idea of the 7th-9th dimensions. We find this model to be wrong-headed because there appears to be no reason to believe that the physical "constants" are indeed constant, as Rupert Sheldrake most eloquently explains.
Teal on the New Age movement
Is The New Age Movement an Illuminati Conspiracy? - Teal Swan
The true new age movement is not in the business of feeding people beliefs. Instead, it is in the business of having you question your beliefs and letting you choose the ones that serve you personally. This is hardly a recipe for control. It is a recipe for freedom.
Summed up, the conspiracy goes like this. "The New Age Movement is created by the Illuminati seeking to create one world order... a collection of false beliefs given by either false prophets or the Illuminati members themselves which will cause chaos and enable them to do what they want here on earth. The Illuminati has created this new age spirituality so we can have a false sense of freedom, and so we over look our Earthly events on the "false" promise of Ascension".
The new age philosophy is a fusion of beliefs which originated far before the Illuminati even existed; beliefs which prove to be true again and again when a person seeks God or enlightenment within themselves. The true new age movement is not in the business of feeding people beliefs. Instead, it is in the business of having you question your beliefs and letting you choose the ones that serve you personally. This is hardly a recipe for control. It is a recipe for freedom.
Those who say the new age is merely a design of the new world order, would have you believe that you cannot trust yourselves as individuals. They would have you believe that you are capable of being led astray by false prophets.
But the entire principal of the new age movement is that you can be trusted and should trust yourself to know the teachers that are out of alignment from those who are in alignment. Ultimately, you are the ones as individuals who are capable (if you listen to your own heart and emotions) of deciding what is best for you.
Putting faith and power in the individual, is the exact opposite of a recipe for control. It is the understanding of the New Age Movement that your connection to God is YOURS. You do not need to seek that connection through a spiritual teacher. You do not need to seek truth externally. Our only desire is to help you recognize that connection that you have individually to God that no one else can break.
When we do this, it is our understanding that you will never be able to be controlled by anyone else. Not a spiritual teacher, not a government, not a one world order.
This is the gift inherent in the New Age Movement. Its aim is not to lead you astray. It is to put you in touch with yourself and your internal compass to such a degree that you could not ever be controlled or hurt by anyone.
The new age movement is the opposition to the Illuminati and the new world order. And perhaps, their greatest trick yet, is to convince you that those of us who lead the new age movement are one of them!
We agree completely. The only problem with the New Age movement is the incomplete understandings that many people are too quick to preach, and the generally lacking understanding of the mechanics (physics) of reality due to the objective reality delusion that is memetically programmed into our unconscious by the control system. Physicist Tom Campbell has already derived quantum mechanics and general relativity from a virtual reality model within the subjective reality metaparadigm. In other words, fundamentalist-materialist science and New Age teachings such as the Law of Attraction are derivable from the subjective reality metaparadigm — which is precisely what we are attempting to do with The Biggest Picture.
Teal's incarnational theme is obviously (at least in part) about transforming limitation into freedom. Thus, momentum from previous experiences of limitation may still exist in her consciousness, thus she may attract people in her life that are representative of that idea.
While we do notice aspects of egoic self-aggrandizement in some of Teal's videos and writing, most of the critiques she has received seem to be largely off the mark.
In an article by spiritual blogger LaVaughn, after doubting Teal's backstory of satanic cult abuse, she writes:
Why should we "Ask Teal?" Because she's an Indigo and because she was "sent as a 'Eucharist' into this physical life by the non physical grouping of energy called 'Adonai'." For all the references to a range of spiritual trainings in her various modeling bios and other random write-ups, none of it appears on her official bio. There is no reference to any training or certification. No teachers are referenced even obliquely, let alone by name. She doesn't even name any person or philosophical tradition that may have informed or inspired her work. She's an Indigo and a Eucharist. That's it, unless escaping that nasty cult has prepared her to teach the eternal truths. Other than that it's a lot of her likes and dislikes. Did I mention that she loves gifts? She really loves gifts.
Why should it matter that she has no teachers, training, wisdom tradition, lineage, or any other source for her ideas? Only because she's teaching a lot of material that clearly comes from somewhere and, to date, the only source I've heard her cite is "source," aka., God.
In the video lecture above, she not only presumes to answer the question, "What does God think about sex?" but she does so without citing a single theological, philosophical, or scriptural source, from or about any religious or spiritual tradition. She only makes very general references to many religions and cultures and how those traditions are "out of alignment" with "the objective truth or source/God perspective." This "objective truth" is something she somehow knows and can lecture on where all these other religious traditions and cultures have failed. The messaging here is that she needs no study, nor does she need to provide a single citation to explain how she arrived at this "objective knowledge." I get very nervous when anyone starts claiming they know "objective truths" because, well, it's impossible. Human experience and knowledge are always subjective. It always comes through the filter of our perceptions. Yet Scott would have us believe that we simply need to come into alignment with our own "positive" thoughts as if any of our ideas of what is positive or negative are free from religious or cultural bias. She also implies that this alignment would put us in such integrity that negative things like STDs just wouldn't happen. This is fairly dangerous advice.
The only objective truth is that all truths are true, because reality exists only subjectively. That's why Teal says "the objective truth or source/God perspective." When one is in alignment with one's true self, one will indeed not experience such ideas as STDs (unless that's the kind of theme the soul chose to explore in the incarnation).
It sounds to me like a lot of warmed over Secret, Abraham-Hicks, law of attraction type, material. I think I've made my opinions on all of that abundantly clear. But what is particularly pernicious here is that she isn't citing any of it. It all apparently comes from God. Did I mention that she's a "Eucharist?"
I can't help wondering why someone who has gone all the way to China to study energy healing and Quigong, was mentored for 19 years in quantum mechanics, apprenticed with a shaman/accupuncturist for 13 years, and became a Wiccan High Priestess, wouldn't cite any of that on the bio she's using to promote her metaphysical knowledge. She saw fit to put that information on modeling bios but not on sites where she's promoting herself as spiritual leader? And I have yet to see a single name, school, or coven associated with any of that.
Psychic abilities aside, it's easy to tell that her primary source is Bashar, and she has also been paying attention to Abraham-Hicks, Rob Bryanton, Byron Katie, and many others. To truly understand the physics of the Law of Attraction as explained by Abraham-Hicks and The Secret, we have to introduce higher dimensions, which the Many Worlds Interpretation of quantum mechanics sets the foundations for, as Rob Bryanton shows. Bashar further elucidates the higher-dimensional non-causal mechanics of manifestation in the eternal now that is the Creation experienced by the One ("God perspective") in all the ways that it can.
It is not only in the area of metaphysics where Scott holds forth. She has some rather strong ideas about psychology. Obviously she's not a psychologist but she sees no need to cite any references for some rather forceful claims on the subject. Notably, she thinks many people are psychopaths. She has stated that the cult leader who dominated her life for 13 years was a psychopath but also had multiple personalities. A psychopath with DID? Really? These would appear to be very contradictory diagnoses with which she's labeling this nameless man without a shred of tangible evidence.
So, no, psychopathy is not an "advanced" form of sociopathy. Hare is also of the opinion that psychopaths are indeed "born" and that while the genetic propensity towards psychopathy can be offset through early social conditioning, a psychopath cannot be "made" through purely sociological factors.
All personality traits are the result of genetic-environmental interactions. Recent research in behavioral genetics indicates that callous-unemotional traits and antisocial tendencies, likely precursors to the dimensions of psychopathy described earlier, are highly heritable. There is no evidence that psychopathy can result solely from social or environmental influences. This doesn't mean that some people are destined to become psychopaths, only that the process of socialization is much more difficult for those with early indications of the precursors of the disorder.
None of this is to say that Hare or any other researcher into the phenomenon of psychopathy is not unimpeachable or that the definitions of these terms won't continue to evolve. But where Robert Hare has years of research, practice, and a foundation in the work of his predecessor and colleague Harvey Cleckley, Scott has what? That she's an Indigo? Or a "Eucharist?"
Actually, real (i.e. honest) research in behavioral genetics suggest otherwise. Stem cells pioneer Bruce Lipton shows that genes are no more than blueprints, their expression being entirely dependent on the environment, not on heredity.
Another critique by Jessica Schab writes of Teal Swan:
I have decided to make a page just for this Teal Swan/ Scott woman because of the many shocking appealing and down right dangerous teachings she is sharing.
Recently a girl who lived with Teal and had shared with me the most demented and disturbing things about Teals words actions and behavior that i knew i had to make it public as someone like this must be stopped and exposed so she can not continue to harm others.
The following includes images we have made from words/claims we have heard her say in her videos and blogs. Also included here are some articles we have written about teal and the conversations we have had on our facebook group with the EOF [End Of Fear] Pioneers who want to understand her twisted psychology better. She has also been a confirmed a character match to watch for of a dangerous cult leader, she fits the description of everyone one of the characteristics listed that was made by the FBI as a warning to others.
How could one suggest that what the FBI — one of the largest criminal organizations in the world — says about "dangerous cults" could be an "authoritative" reference, when the FBI itself is, by definition, one of the most dangerous cults? Specifically, members of the FBI are believers in the most dangerous superstition of all: "authority" — i.e. they unconsciously believe in the legitimacy of slavery in the form of statism, thus follow orders from their masters (those who call themselves "government") instead of exercising conscience. The FBI's list of common traits of cult leaders applies more to the FBI (and any other violence-premised system of "authority") than to Teal Swan or any other promoter of the Law of Attraction.
On the About page of her website, it states:
Jessica is the co-founder of the EOF [End Of Fear] Project. With over seven years experience as an inspirational speaker, writer, mentor and life coach she is known for her forthright journalistic approach. Having produced multiple vlogs and blogs (1 million plus viewers) Jessica, somewhat unwillingly, created a name for herself which led to a career of guest speaking at multiple conferences, and featuring in documentaries and on radio shows across North America and Europe. She shot to popularity in the new age circles quickly, and is best known for her interviews on shows such as “Project Camelot“ and Lilou Mace’s “Juicy Living Tour“.
Times have since changed for Jessica. She renounced her new age metaphysical path when she became conscious of this route as causing psychological harm; realizing this new form of religion as not actually helping the greater good of humanity at all. With this understanding Jessica feels strongly compelled to speak out on this subject with the intention of bringing awareness to truth-seekers and encouraging a sense of responsibility in other spiritual speakers who pursue and share such “mis“-information.
We would suggest that Jessica may have been too quick to "throw the baby out with the bathwater", as the saying goes, and that she may have gone into that path from a fearful belief system wanting to uncritically trust in something, or that she may have allowed whatever metaphysical path she was exploring to be tainted by the beliefs and actions of others — psychological harm being the result of beliefs and definitions that are out of alignment with one's true self. The end of fear happens when one assigns only positive/neutral meaning to circumstances and situations, which are fundamentally meaningless because they are only a resonant reflection by the Higher Mind, the 5th-dimensional aspect of the Human being in the subjective reality metaparadigm.
The End Of Fear Project website, which oddly lacks a precise explanation of what it is about, states:
The EOF Project is open and adaptable to working with any persons, groups, businesses, sponsors, mental wellness centers, communities, universities, schools, philanthropists, projects, arts, permaculture, science, foundations, private clubs, academic research, organizations and resources that are aimed at the evolution of the human experience or to make the world a better place for understanding and common living.
Yet some of its members are evidently bashing what they do not understand, including the information shared by Bashar, who is the most powerful voice "aimed at the evolution of the human experience", and who explains exactly and precisely the mechanics of fear.
Jessica then refers to an exchange she had with Cameron Clark, who used to live with Teal Swan. He writes:
I have my own suspicions that Teal may be part of a larger agenda than anyone else is willing to publicly acknowledge at this juncture. I was approached by some people during Teal’s New York workshop right before I fled from Utah with some pretty shocking arguments suggesting that Teal may be an illuminati pawn involved in promoting some new world order agenda in the new age arena moving people towards a one world religion. They planted a seed, and when I got back from New York, I didn’t know what to believe, or exactly how far Teal's reach might be...Some things I witnessed while I was in her sphere made me fear for my safety. I was exploited once by Teal, and I am hesitant to be exploited by anyone else in the spiritual community who has an agenda that I am not aware of.
The agenda of the Illuminati (i.e. the control system), whatever it may be, is in opposite polarity to the sharing of ideas that lead one to the understanding of the objective reality delusion, and thus the true nature of the self (and consciousness in a more general sense), which renders any such agenda vibrationally incompatible with one's preferred state of being.
Cameron further states:
I need to snap out of these dangerously warped belief systems i've adopted since Teal... It's been difficult to sort through it all on my on. I really resonate with the direction you are going here... I still clearly need more detoxing. The only thing I have come to realize is that I still know absolutely nothing for sure about this holographic illusion that we're living it. But I am probably going to spend the rest of my life trying to figure it out. I do want to ask you whether you believe our souls choose to experience anything? I do actually resonate with the idea that our souls are driving our experiences regardless of our waking thoughts. I believe our bodies are much like a car, and our soul is actually driving that car. I don't believe in most of the basic LOA BS teachings that claim our thoughts create our realities. I do have faith in the divine order of things. While our conscious thoughts may only have less than 10 percent of an effect on our experience, I think the desire and intention for our soul to experience and expand in consciousness does play a part in our waking experience. Is this belief damaging in your opinion?
One may spend a lifetime "trying" to figure it out, but the resonance of trying will primarily create manifestations that are representative of more trying, because the soul's manifestation of the free-willed Physical Mind in 3rd density (physical reality) is the absolute determiner of the kind of experience one has, even if the Higher Mind will insist on reflecting elements that are representative of the incarnational themes the soul chose to explore. When one has "faith in the divine order of things" — i.e. releases resistance created by the ego in opposition to it — then one is in aligment with one's natural self, i.e. the vibratory energy that represents the incarnational themes the soul chose to explore. An incomplete or over-simplified understanding of the Law of Attraction, which describes the dynamics of the higher-dimensional mechanics of reality manifestation in the subjective reality metaparadigm, may lead one to the inevitable conclusion that LoA must be bullshit, because it is incompatible with the objective reality metaparadigm.
In a somewhat more interesting critique, titled Vibrational Review: Teal Scott revisited: the question is: is she a liar? is she a fraud? is what she does or teach does for you what she claims it will do?, Sophie Benshitta Maven writes:
Busy bee... When I am face to face with her name, I feel two dominant feelings of her: greed and anxiety/guilt. Greed is a strong creeping feeling that creeps towards your throat and knocks the air out of you... anxiety is a feeling rising from the stomach, and guilt/shame is a strong right hand sign pain.
I wonder what she is ashamed of... so I am doing a search, and lo and behold, if you look for "Teal Scott" or "Teal Bosworth" we discover that her bio is entirely fabricated, that she was a model, and she is in it for the money. I don't care that she was a model, but it says something about our culture when people need to make up their bio to attract followers.
If you listen to any of her videos, you can hear that her throat is closed and that there is no depth of her voice. The greed is closing the throat and stops the chest cavity from vibrating giving your voice a deep resonance.
The content of her stuff is all Tree of Knowledge.
Listening to her energy healing video, she manipulates chi energy (everyone can do that, that's why chi gong is available to anyone) and combines it with visualization, which means she is doing mind-stuff... quite worthless, if you ask me.
Fine observations, but purely ad hominem. Teal Swan's message is essentially exactly the same as our's and Bashar's. That she has a dark side (as we all do) or that she may have made mistakes in her past (like we all do) does not take away from her powerful cutting-edge "Spiritual Catalyst" message.
