TEAL SWAN was born with a range of extrasensory abilities, including clairvoyance, clairsentience, and clairaudience. Because of these extrasensory abilities, she became the target of a cult where she survived 13 years of physical, mental, and sexual abuse before breaking free at age 19 and beginning her own process of recovery and transformation. Today she uses her extrasensory gifts as well as her own harrowing life experience to help millions of people learn how to find forgiveness, happiness and freedom in their own lives. Her success has earned her the nickname "The Spiritual Catalyst."
" When a human being is forced to fit into a society by conforming to social ideals, their emotions are suppressed and they lose touch with their own authentic being as well as their innate knowledge of the universe at large. "
In 2014, Teal Swan founded a social movement based on THE PRINCIPLE OF AUTHENTICITY. She became the first public figure in the field of spirituality to tear down the curtain between her public life and private life. She transparently shares the details of her private life on her widely celebrated blog. The ideology behind her authenticity movement is that today's fast paced modern world is built on pretense instead of authenticity. When the world is built on pretense, the truth of a person and the truth of the world cannot emerge in order to be known. When a human being is forced to fit into a society by conforming to social ideals, their emotions are suppressed and they lose touch with their own authentic being as well as their innate knowledge of the universe at large. They begin to "pretend" to be one way when the reality of who they are and how they feel is quite the opposite. Sometimes this pretense runs so deep that people are fooled by their own illusion. Wars are waged because people are unable to admit to and embrace their fear and grief. Murders are committed because people are unwilling to face the powerlessness they feel. People live unfulfilled lives of addiction and greed because they have never given themselves permission to admit to what they want and how they feel. We live in an age of suppression, where the symptoms of illness are numbed and drugged out of our awareness. We are so busy "keeping up the facade" that we forfeit the opportunity for real personal growth. We are in essence, living in an age of "un-enlightenment".
"Our divinity and humanity must merge to become one. "
Spiritual figures have been promoting this "un-enlightenment" for thousands of years by demonstrating a facade of enlightened perfection whilst in the public eye. They have expressed their divinity while suppressing their humanity. This serves to create a split within the being. This split is then emulated by the spiritual practitioners who learn from them. It causes people to drift further away from self actualization.
" The result when people are restored to wholeness is that the world will be restored to wholeness. "
Integration and wholeness is the path of spiritual progression. Our divinity and humanity must merge to become one. By bravely exposing both their humanity and divinity to the world, and teaching the world how to integrate the two by virtue of example, people must begin to unite the humanity and divinity within themselves.
The result when people are restored to wholeness is that the world will be restored to wholeness. Teal Swan's authenticity movement invites people to step fully into their authenticity, knowing that this will bring about the positive change that we want to see in the world.
In conjunction with her vision of creating positive world change, Teal Swan founded HEADWAY FOUNDATION, a nonprofit company that enables ideas, goals and ventures that are aimed at positive world change to become actualized. In the years to come, Headway Foundation will encompass programs, centers, companies and products in the areas of justice reform, education, end of life care, self help, healing, parenting, integrative medicine, food industry reform and spirituality. Headway Foundation seeks to create the changes within our society that will create a better life for all beings who call this earth their home.
