I really liked this video, somehow when she is angry she is more natural.

In her other videos she seem a bit weird, but after knowing about her difficult past, I like her more.

I'd say she's stage Orange. She's a con artist that uses her appearance to sell a product. Be it her $3000 weekend seminars. Or the mugs, shoes, hats, Yoga matts, tote bags, gift cards, and posters she sells on her website. She is in this for fame and money. She had said as much on video in interviews. She is solid orange (greed and concerned with image). Nowhere near Yellow. Yellow doesn't use knowledge to fleece people out of millions. 

You seem to be really hung up on this monetization thing.

The major difference between Leo and Teal is money. She changes $3000 per person per talk. Leo shares his knowledge for free. 

She also has hundreds of hours of free youtube video's.

Hey man,tbh this bitch is full of bullshit.

Not trying to go offensive,but she acts like she actually just knows things,but actually she just suppose them.

 

I have this porn addiction that I'm trying to puzzle and get rid of.

She made a video about overcoming the porn addiction and the gist from that video is to remind yourself that those pornstars have families too,some of them might have kids and it's not nice to fap on their bodies (which is true,but is not practical at all).

 

Why do I say that it's not practical?

 

Because once you're a hardcore addict,you become extremely numb to emotions.

You don't feel love and compassion.

Yes, rationally you understand their values and try to maintain them,but pragmatically it's just bullshit, because an addiction is compulsive,not rational.

You're not thinking "hmm I would like to watch porn".No! this is not the main problem.

The problem is that you have extremely intense cravings for it,unrational craving.

Yeah you could tell yourself all those stories that she tries to push as a cure,but tbh it doesn't change absolutely anything.

Be careful with this.

She may be wrong about porn addiction, but that doesn't mean everything she says is bullshit.

Judge each message independently.

i think they seem pretty rational, simply the behavior is irrational. Her argument according to you, sounds like the morality argument for going vegan. This being said, hard to believe you she uses this argument to help someone overcome an addiction. It must have been the 'part' of the video that really stuck out to you or something

Damn True!

 

@xthebentnecklady Nobody is infallible including consciousness teachers, there are some videos of her which are totally in low-quality but some others are much good work, so that doesn't mean she is a bitch witch and we should ignore every teaching of her! 

in case of pornography, yes every body is free to do what they want to do and saying that porn stars are somebody's sister or daughter is totally a nonsense, so I turn thumbs down on that thought of her.

I read one of her books about spiritual exercises. It was very good.

Integrate the pros of every teacher and leave behind the cons of every teacher.  And then realize that every perspective is a teacher too.  It's all already right in front of you.  Just observe, reflect, do the work -- and take action.  Don't sit around on your ass waiting for life to spoon-feed you like a baby.  Be a lion, see.  God rewards the righteous lion not the sniveling man-child.

@DrewNows '''i think they seem pretty rational, simply the behavior is irrational'''

What?

They (porn addicts)don't take decisions based on cognition but based on compulsion.

Do I have to repeat this?

 

'''This being said, hard to believe you she uses this argument to help someone overcome an addiction. It must have been the 'part' of the video that really stuck out to you or '''

>Thus being said ,she just throws shit for people,say it with a nice voice and some put some chill music on the background and hopes that it will melts people hearts and cure their addictions.

I just explained you her shit doesn't work just because she tries to make you feel things but your brain is numbed and can't feel those emotions.

Making someone feel guiltier for repapsing will make him relapse even more.

And no,I am right, that's literally her entire video about this topic.

@xthebentnecklady her videos aren’t ment to provide the “solution” or “fix” to your problem of addiction but simply to get you to look at it from different angles so you are able to understand it at its root. From here you can easily overcome any addiction with the right amount of will  

Just started watching the episode and it’s packed with good insights about the psychology and behavior behind this addiction 

Seems to me you have a lot of self reflection and Emotional work that needs to be done. Maybe she isn’t the right “teacher” for you, doesn’t make her invaluable to others. All the best 

I can also see you’re reacting to her words instead of setting aside your own bias and beliefs simply to consider her perspective

@DrewNows I told you,her perspective is bullshit.

You can't ask for a hardcore addict to feel because he is wrecked inside and he can't feel love, literally he can't, because there are powerful withdrawal symtons and for 90 days,there will be suffering, anxiety and brainfog.

There is no place for love.It's just perversion and compulsion.

@xthebentnecklady that’s called resisting resistance actually, it’s escaping your bad feelings, this will not create good ones because to feel good you need to be able to let out and let go of the negative ones
