Today’s Great Epidemic (And How To Cure It) – Teal Swan –

December 18, 2019

Today’s Great Epidemic Hello there. The collective consciousness of mankind has been evolving for
centuries and centuries. We have seen many dark ages and many awakenings. And welcome to today. We’re in the midst of one such dark age. The name of this dark age is the emotional dark age. If you’re even see in this video, you’re in the process of awakening from this dark age. So what exactly is the emotional dark age? It’s the age of ignorance
relative to emotions. Most people on earth do
not understand emotions. They’re not terribly conscious of them, they do not know what function serve, they do not know what to do with them. This is a serious problem considering that emotions
are the very basis of every person life’s experience. There are many awakenings which must occur when we awaken to the idea of emotions. But today I’m going to trigger one of these awakenings for you, because this particular dysfunctional or emotional ignorance is at the very basis of our adult dysfunctions in our day to day life. I’m going to call this type
of emotional ignorance The Great Epidemic. Because it quite literally is. It is to blame for more clonic unhappiness and suicide, than all other causes combined. Many of you who are
watching this movie today are aware of emotional abuse. This like deliberate threatening, shaming, humiliating, exploiting and isolating to name a few. But there is another form
of emotional abuse that goes towards people which
is harder to recognize, and it leaves even deeper scars. It is this form of abuse that is today’s epidemic and it is called: Emotional Neglect. The best way to understand
emotional neglect is this: It is trauma that is created by what is not done, instead of trauma that is created as a result of what is done. Now, keep in mind, that your traditional forms
of emotional abuse can go hand in hand
with emotional neglect. But a person can be
emotionally neglectful, without ever being overtly emotionally abusive, in the traditional sense. Yes you guessed it, emotional neglect like most things, begins in our childhood, and so we are going
to begin in childhood. But not before we examine
the life of someone who did suffer emotional
neglect in their childhood. The person who we are going to study is named Mary. Mary holds a very successful position at a law firm. So, her life is pretty comfortable, especially financially. She came from a very
small town in Colorado. A town which was peaceful. She is the last of three children. When she looks back at her life, things seem pretty good, her childhood never had any real identifiable trauma, associated with it. Her family was financially successful, she never wanted for anything, her parents who are still married
to this day, never argued. They had low tolerance for
negativity of any kind, in fact. When any of the children
would wine or complain or cry, they were promptly sent to their rooms. So Mary is confused about why she is the way she is. She’s confused about why she
goes to bars on the weekends and drinks until she blacks out. She’s confused about why she can’t seem to create a
successful relationship with a man. She’s confused about why she
often fantasizes about suicide. You may confused as well, but let’s look at Mary’s life, but this time, under the lens of emotional neglect. It is a parent’s responsibility relative to their child, to be attuned to that child’s needs. Now it’s quite obvious, the physical needs that a child has, things like food, and shelter, and water, and clothing, and bathing. But what about emotional needs? Chances are when I just said: “What about emotional needs?”, your first response was: “What are emotional needs?” If that doesn’t tell you just how deep in the dark
age of emotions we are, I don’t know what does. That being said, we all have emotional needs. Every child has emotional needs, and if those needs are not met, we end up feeling empty. For this very reason, if you struggle with emptiness, I want you to watch my
video on YouTube titled: Emptiness When a parent does not meet their child’s emotional needs, the message that they’re
unintentional sending that child, is that the child is unimportant to them. This child does not feel
seen, heard, or felt. There’s no intimacy in the relationship and so this child lacks the knowledge about how to form intimate relationships. When a child is shamed for having
emotional needs from the parent, the message the child receives is: “There’s something wrong
and unlovable about me.” And this child grows up
being completely blind To his or her own emotional needs, as well as being very afraid
of their own emotions. It’s a parents job to establish
emotional connection with their child, to give undivided attention to their child seeing them as a unique
separate individual, who has a right to feel the way they feel, and to use this emotion
connection and attention to respond to the emotional need that their child is currently displaying. This can sound like a tall order if you yourself have never experienced someone being emotionally
attentive to you. But it is my promise that you can learn. Now when we look back at Mary’s childhood. We can easily see how her well meaning parents unintentionally taught her a lesson, and all their children, which is that if they have
something emotional going on that’s negative, or negative thoughts, they had better keep them to themselves. Negative emotion was bad
and not to be tolerated. Every time Mary had these feelings she would feel ashamed of them, Should isolate herself and not
let anyone else see them. she would try to escape them by drinking, And she was so intent on hiding
the shameful aspect of herself, believing that if anyone saw
this side of her that felt bad, they would abandon her, that she never got past
the third date with a man. She was lonely and regardless
of whether or not Mary’s parents did actually love her, she did not feel loved as a child. Remember of course that
we know a parent loves us without feeling that a parent loves us. Mary felt isolated did from the world. Like she was on the outside looking in and like no one really knew her. And so, she often thought: “What’s the point of being alive?” And one day when Mary was feeling
lonely enough, she did commit suicide. And no one saw it coming. It was a shock to everyone, because no one knew how
much pain she was really in. Mary’s parents did in fact love Mary. As well as all of their other children. In fact, from the outside, her childhood looked idyllic, even enviable. But the real truth, which no one could see, is that underneath that veneer, these parents had no idea how to emotionally parent their child. They didn’t know how to meet
their emotional needs. And as a result, quite unintentionally, their children, Mary included, Mary especially, was taught lessons, that led to her death. Most people who suffer emotional neglect, either suffer in silence,
keeping that internal world away from absolutely
everything and everyone, or they go from
psychiatrist to psychologist, trying endlessly to figure out what the hell is wrong with them. When they look back at their life, they can’t see what possibly
could have happened to make them the way that they are. So there must be something
wrong with them. This is because emotional neglect is not what you see. It is what you don’t see. It is the encouragement
that didn’t happen. It is the comforting that wasn’t given. It is the loving support
that wasn’t offered. The loving words that were not said. It is the sense of belonging
that was never granted. The understanding that
was never reached for. You can’t see what isn’t there. And so you can’t remember
what isn’t there. And until you see what
could have been there, you wouldn’t even know
that anything was missing. At this particular point in history, all parents will emotionally
fail their children on occasion. It isn’t these occasional failures which corrode the very foundation that a child life is built on, so as to make their adulthood crumble. It’s the chronic failure to meet emotional needs. Now I can promise you that the more aware you
become of emotional neglect, the more you’re going to beat
yourself up as a parent. Because you’re going to see the ways that you’re emotionally failing your child because you’ll suddenly
recognize the way that you were emotionally failed as a child. Just why is this such an epidemic? It’s an epidemic because it is rampart. Not only that, it is passed from generation to generation to generation, and everyone is completely unaware of it. They are unaware of it until the day that one person becomes aware and conscience of it. If your emotional needs
were not met in childhood , you’ll have a very difficult time meeting your own needs in adulthood. That’s why emotional neglect is in fact, the number one cause of
codependency in adulthood. Now, if you’re the kind of person who heard that just now and said: “Whoa wait a minute, I’m the most
independent person that I know. “I must not have been emotionally
neglected, thank God, because, definitely not dependent. You can go ahead and think again, because independent people tend to be the worst
at meeting their needs for intimacy and close
connection with others. These are still needs, still needs that you have. We tend to swing to one
direction or the other when we have experienced
emotional neglect. We either become extremely dependent, or become extremely independent. There are many many symptoms
of emotional neglect, but here’s a list of some common things that will occur in adulthood if you have suffered from
emotional neglect in childhood. Feeling like you do not belong, feeling chronic shame, feeling an insatiable sense of emptiness, difficulty asking for help, chronically unhappy relationships, or the inability to form
lasting relationships, you’re either too dependent on others, or pride yourself on being
completely independent, the feeling that you’re a fraud, feeling either like you’re safer alone, or that you absolutely
cannot stand being alone, judging yourself more harshly
than you judge others, having a hard time figuring
out what you’re feeling, what you’re feeling you are
on the outside of life looking in, suicidal feelings or thoughts, difficulty calming yourself
or self soothing, feeling a great deal of
self blame or self hatred, feeling as if something in you
is defective or unlovable, “there’s is something wrong with me”, feeling either like you
are too self disciplined, or that you struggle with
self discipline and are lazy, having difficulty nurturing others or providing adequate affection, you feel unhappy for no obvious reason. If you suspect that you
were emotional neglected in your childhood, I implore you to watch the video which I created on YouTube titled: Meet Your Needs! The more aware you become of what your emotional
needs actually are, the easier it is to identify how those needs were not met in childhood, and thus the specific type of emotional neglect that you suffered in your childhood. Learning how to self care and also how to let others care for you, learning how to meet your needs, let other people meet your needs and meet other people’s needs, is an important part of overcoming emotional neglect. Also it might enlightening for
you to do a little research on your own time,
about emotional neglect and about the many different
family dynamics and circumstances that are emotionally neglectful. You may just finally be
able to connect the dots between what you’ve experienced, or should I say, didn’t get to experience, and why you feel the way you feel. If you have suffered
from emotional neglect, do not despair. You can in fact, heal from this particular trauma. The first step, is to dive directly into the world of emotions. Obviously with emotional neglect, emotions is the aspect of our life that we’ll struggle the most with. So what we have to do, is to become aware of our own emotions. We have to start noticing how we feel, caring how we feel, we have to look into the
purpose of emotions, what to do with them
when they come up, how to express them. We need to develop our
emotional intelligence. If you want some assistance in doing this, you can seek out a Somatic Therapist or a Hacomi Therapist in your area. You also may want to watch
my YouTube videos titled: Positively Embrace Your Negative Emotions, How To Emotion Your Emotions &, How To Heal The Emotional Body. Next, you need to learn about emotions and relationships. If we want our society to improve, and emotional neglect, to no longer be a function
of Human Society, we must learn how to meet
our own emotional needs, meet each other’s emotional needs, and let our emotional needs be met. For this very reason, I want you to watch the YouTube video that I created, that is titled: Emotional Wake Up Call. Since emotional neglect
affects our ability to be authentic and our ability to be intimate, learning how to be authentic and intimate, is a key ingredient to overcoming emotional neglect. Keep in mind that intimacy is not about sex. Intimacy is about seeing another person, feeling them, really listening and hearing them, understanding them. It’s about touching the internal world and conversely it’s about being seen, being felt, being understood, being heard, allowing people to touch
our internal world. In this universe, there is simply the presence of something and the lack of that very same something. This is the true polarity that exists. So one could say, that darkness is nothing more, than the absence of light. The vibration of lack is the furthest vibration from the vibration of source or what many call God. Therefore, it is emotionally the most painful vibration
you can experience. More damage can be done to you by what is not done, that was ever done to you,
by virtue of what was done. It is my desire, that by becoming aware of this epidemic within the human race, we can shift our focus to the awareness of emotions. We can shift our focus towards meeting our own needs, meeting the needs of our children, and meeting the needs of each other. And it my hope that you live long enough to see what becomes of this society, when we achieve this state. Have a good week.

I even started to believe that i should stop feeling what i feel and got addicted in the process but it didn't help at all. Thanks to spiritual guides like you I have found where I belong and how it is ok to be who i am. Thank you so much Teal. Lots of love.

    Whose problem is it if an adult takes forever to say something and gets upset that nobody has the time to listen to it? On top of being slow they are also exceptionally dreary like some particular sort of elder people are. Just can't help but feel like shaking them up mid-word to maybe get the sentence out of them faster. Oh and also the constant need to repeat stuff and explain things from the beginning. I am sure there is an explanation to this speed-comprehension mismatch that goes beyond "they had to put up with your nonsense while you were a kid, now it's your turn to return the favor." Teal, please help.

    Yep: your list went for me like: "check, check, check….." all of it. Especially the "I don't belong here" and looking at everything and anyone as through a thick bullet-proof glass wall – I can trace it way back to childhood, including a non-teasing, (seemingly) earnest comment: "You are somehow different". Might be confirmation bias that kept this in my memory.
    Never really could talk about it (or even just hinting at inner struggle) with anyone. All I ever got was self righteous lecturing and patronizing about self pity or pure made up nonsense from people who (so it seems) try to convince themselves they know more than others.
    Anyway: thanks a lot for this incredibly insightful video!

    Hey Teal, thanks for making all your awesome videos. Suggestion; please say, "complete suicide," instead of, "commit suicide." Commit implies that suicide is a sin or a crime and reinforces the negative stigmas around suicide that keep people from asking for help with their suicidal thoughts and feelings. A little thing that could make a big impact and save lives. Thanks again.

    This subject is HUGE! This was my case, I grow up in a Family who has no emotions, the limbic system of the brain seems to be completly or almost completly disactivated.

    What I've observed along the years is that the emotional pattern in almost all of this kind of familys is similar to the pattern that occours between a bossXemployee, it seems that people are having their minds molded in this patterns of subjugation that occours mainly in the middle-classes and are repeting this along all their lives, in the relationships with Family mainly, reinforced by the medias, they are acting like zombies who are just able to think in a mechanical/rational/survival way that functions ALWAYS in competition with other people. Emotional Dark age was the best name i've ever hear to describe this times.

    After watching one or two of these videos, I thought, "fairy nice packaging, but something is not right with the presenter". I let that feeling settle over me for more discernment. Then quickly the reveal emerged: she does want to help people on one level of her consciousness or she has convinced herself that she does, but her predominant agenda is prosperity, security and control. There is a lot of "borrowing" of material from other teachers and scriptures. The most troubling vibration is that you her foundation is based on falsehood. No wonder she has made such an issue of "authenticity ". It's time to come clean with your students/followers/clients/public. People will not abandon you.

    I bought few years ago an electric blanket for me and one for my mother. And came out a story that made me realized how neglected i was. Talking about that blanket my mother remembered that when i was at the 2nd class of elementary school and we lived in a much much colder place, she had another blanket that was used to take the humidity from the sheets in my parents bed.. And she was wandering where it could be. And i asked :Did you have only one? what about me?" She stared at me with genuine surprise and said "it didn't pass my mind"

    I second Alexandria Gabriella’s motion of Teal for president. However, I think we are beyond hope and help unless our over populated country and planed soon awaken.

    Have your own family and break the cycle. Its been a wonderful transition from lonely, sadness and desperation to be wanted to a feeling of love, happiness and accomplishment. My daughter's are dolls and wife is amazing. My wife had also grown up in an almost identical zero love family. We talked about breaking the cycle and how and what we would do. Idk, I've been blessed. Just need to keep the hateful vampires whom wanted nothing more than to ruin us before we even got started. So jealous……and that was our mother's LOL.
    We never got married 9r could consider a wedding with how pathetic the family's where/are. It is finally better, almost acceptable …well almost tolerable. Break the cycle, its how you can fix the broken hearted. Kids provide more love than you'll ever know unless you have them and accept it.

    It's pretty sickening that psychiatrists cover up for abusive and neglectful parents. I wouldn't be surprised if they abuse their own children..

  • Reply Laura LaBoone November 15, 2019 at 2:06 pm

    Wow as soon as you started listing the symptoms I lost it bc they describe me exactly and I’ve never attributed these behaviors and tendencies to my emotional needs…. I’ve never been encouraged to express my emotions.

    We truly are in an emotional dark age. This should be common knowledge.
