How to Improve Your Relationship with Food – Teal Swan

How to Improve Your Relationship with Food – Teal Swan


At this point in human evolution, eating is a part of
all of our lives. And that’s not going to
change any time soon. We’re in a relationship
with the food we eat. whether we like it or not Now, some people have an awesome
relationship with food. for people like us. it’s basically a live to
eat philosophy instead of a eat to
live philosophy that’s right for them. but for some of us we don’t like
food so much. So, what are we supposed to do
to improve our relationship? If you look at it,
a human being regardless of where
they are on the planet, spends over one hour just
eating and drinking a day that doesn’t include
shopping for food, preparing food. So, what does
this mean? You better have a good
relationship with food. How to Improve Your
Relationship with Food there are many experiences
that can and do lead to an unhealthy relationship
with food the traumas that cause an unhealthy
relationship with food tend to circle
around issues of receiving in relationships issues of abundance. and traumas directly
related to food. there are many experiences
that can and do lead to unhealthy relationships
with food now, most of these issues stem from traumas that are related to
abundance traumas, traumas related
to receiving in terms of relationships, body image issues, and of course, traumas related
to food specifically bur rather than dive into
all these individual ways that we can develop a negative
relationship with food I’m simply gonna
dive right in and give you some
suggestions for how to improve your relationship with food step 1: examine your relationship with food. How do you feel
about food? how do you feel about eating? if an extraterrestrial landed on the planet to objectively
study your eating habits what would it observe? assuming that you could see
yourself through its eyes, how do you feel about
those observations? can you identify any
areas of concern? for example, do you act like you
don’t care what you eat? and consider it a
nascence to have to? Are you hyper-controlling
about what you eat? do you feel guilty
when you eat? do you worry about getting
fat when you eat? 2: directly face and resolve
any unresolved issues or previous traumas
that are leading to the issues that you
have around food. if you have a trauma
around food, certain situations involving
food and eating and even specific foods will cause you to have an emotional
and even physical reaction you can use that reaction to
discover the root trauma causing it and to
create resolve to the unresolved issues and
negative beliefs therein to learn how to do this I suggest
you try the completion process. the process itself is explained
in detail in my book that is quite literally titled:
The Completion Process. Also, these traumas that
are related to food, they cause us to fragment
just like any other trauma. So, we have polarized selves around the concept of
eating specifically. to understand much more
about this concept and also, to see the
process to use for this integration between
selves internally, watch my video titled: Fragmentation ( The World Wide Disease) facing and integrating the
trauma you have of your negative relationship
with food reveals the most powerful steps that
we can take personally to improve our relationship
with food. 3: I want you to take on
a new perspective I want you to imagine
that food is art. now, if it’s just one single food
item grown by the earth itself, it is the earth’s art. or if you believe in
Source and God it is Source or God’s art. if somebody is taking
those pieces of art and creating another
piece of art out of it be it a recipe or
some kind of dish, that is a human
creative art piece. but I want you to
think about this; any time you’re in
the grocery store I want you to imagine that you are
in a gallery same thing, if you
go to a restaurant and same thing, if somebody
in your home cooks for you. you’re at a gallery instead. What you are being fed or what you
are looking at potentially eating, is a piece of art. for one week commit 100% to
the practice of looking at food as if it is art. if you make food, do so with the
idea that you are creating art and when you eat a dish that
someone created for you imagine it is
edible art. hopefully by the
end of the week where you dedicate yourself
to this practice it will be the new, second nature
way that you view food. 4: practice mindful eating. eating is an intensely
somatic experience it gives rise to all
kinds of sensations and emotions it’s a full blown experience. but most of us
are so rushed that we don’t actually
spend any time registering the fact that
it’s an experience. we don’t feel the way that
food makes us feel. we don’t spend any
time thinking about it. we are MINDless about
the process of eating. when we are not fully
present when we eat, and when we
eat too fast we tune out the sensory
experience of food. we do not experience
food fully. we take it for
granted. we don’t extract the
full richness out of it. we can’t tell how our bodies
even respond to certain foods. So, when you sit
down to eat, give yourself
time to do it. the cultures that
are the healthiest in terms of their relationship
with food, take a long amount of time to eat. it’s a whole social practice. So, what I want you to do
is to slow completely down. give yourself a
time period so as to focus 100%
on the process and experience of
eating your food. this means with
no distractions see the look of the food. smell the food. hear the food. I want you to close your
eyes when you take a bite. and feel how it
affects your body most people believe that food,
or the experience of food is localized in
the mouth. it actually isn’t. some foods you can feel
through your entire body. they tend to localize
in certain areas. they come with
different sensations. see if you can notice
those sensations. a good trick is that
between every bite. you lay your fork down. 5: with any food whether it’s
something simple like a peach, or something complex
like a curry, I want you to think about
every single element or energy that went
into that food. for example, to get a
peach to your table it had to start
as a seed. it had to have soil and
sunlight and rain from clouds and then energy from
the farmers who grew it and energy from the truck
that drove it to the store etc, etc.. what we don’t realize
is that a single peach is made up of all
these elements if you are super attuned you can taste the season
and the rain cloud and the sunlight
in the peach. you can also taste
the focus that a farmer had towards
that particular peach the amount of effort that went into
the creation of this one single thing is absolutely mind blowing. you are ingesting
all of that energy imagine tracing the food
backward from your table to its origin like
a story line. and when you are doing this
with a whole dish like a curry do this with every
ingredient in the dish. get more sensitive. in order to have a good
relationship with food, you’ve got to be
able to feel food. that means you have
to feel in the first place. for those of you who
struggle with feeling I suggest you watch
my video titled: How To Feel. we must be able to
sense our feelings in order to know how
food is affecting us. in order to feel food to know what
food we should even be eating. people who have a great
relationship with food, they don’t adhere to a
strict dietary regiment what they do is they
eat intuitively. so even if you see
somebody who seems to have a strict
dietary regiment if they have a good
relationship with food, they arrived at that
particular way of eating, based on being
super intuitive not mentally rigid
about their choices when you go to
the grocery store, notice how your body is
reacting to certain foods notice what it
is asking for. one day, your body may really
want beans, for example. the next day it may
not want it at all. one day you go to
the grocery store, and the broccoli may be
vital and full of energy, and you can see how amazing that
would feel to take that into your body. and the next day you
may be able to feel that there is
some element that went into the
creation of that broccoli that makes it lack vital energy
that may even make it poisonous we have to learn to pay attention
to our bodies natural cues. we don’t usually do this. we respond to hunger in a
way where we are afraid of it. we binge eat as
a result of it. or else we become
normalized to it. and we don’t feed our
body when we need to. another thing we
tend to do is that we don’t notice
when we’re full so, we sit down
to a meal and and far pass
when we’re full we continue to stuff
food in our throats it’s really important to start to
eat according to those cues the closer your relationship
is with your emotions, the closer you will be to being
really good at intuitively eating. it will also be
obvious to you when you gravitate
towards specific foods or eat in certain ways based on trying to get away
from a certain emotion if we’re using food to
cover over an emotion, or get away from an emotion
or fill an emotional void, the need we have
isn’t actually for food, it’s for something else. but if we’re not conscious
of that we simply eat. then we’re not actually meeting
the actual need that we have. So, attuning to food and
our habits around food, and our feelings
around food, and noticing when
we’re doing that, is a really good way for us to get
in the middle of that process. So, we can meet
our actual needs instead of eat to try
to cover them up. most of us are actually pretty
good to attuning to foods if we put our
attention on it most of us simply don’t take the
time to communicate with our food. So, we allow our subconscious
to rule our food choices. the more alive
the food is and unprocessed, the easier
it is to communicate with. learn as much as
you can about food especially all the positive
things about food. knowledge is empowerment. foods are not only art, they are the
building blocks of your well being they are not only a
source of enjoyment they are also medicine. you will have a whole new relationship
with lemons, for example, when you learn that it’s not just
about how a lemon tastes, you can use lemons
to lighten hair, to reduce inflamation, to increase your immunity, to stimulate digestion, and the list goes
on and on. you will have a whole new relationship
with your stir fry dish when you when you realize that what
makes that incredible flavor, is the wok that
it’s cooked in and a person who is really good
at cooking through a wok never washes their wok. so in Asia that means, that pot that cooked
your dinner tonight, was the very same pot without
having been washed that cooked that cooked your grandmother’s
dinner 80 years ago and so whats happening
with the heat is that the pores of the
metal are expanding and the flavors of the dish
are getting into the pores. and then never
come out. so every single dish
that you eat is infused with
all those flavors which is why the flavors are
completely non replicatable. and these woks are so
special in these families, they are considered
a family heirloom and are passed down from
generation to generation grow your own food and cook your own food Now, some of you will hate
growing your own food. that’s not going
to be your thing some will love it. other people will
hate cooking. others will love it. but I can’t tell you how much
deeper your relationship will get with the food you’re
eating when you grow it, and or when you cook it. you can still have a wonderful
relationship with food if you don’t do either
of these things. but if you’re trying to improve
your relationship with food, I want you to at
least try this. if there’s no way to grow
food where you live, watch videos of people
who do love doing that and are passionate about the
process of growing food. try cooking. start with something
really really simple. there are so many videos
online now, and on YouTube telling you how
to cook things. just follow one
of the processes and try it
for yourself, you’ll see pretty soon
if you like it or hate it if you like it you can increase
the complexity of the dishes and if you hate doing that,
or you don’t wanna do that, you can simply watch
the food network. I can’t even tell you
how good it is to sit down and
watch somebody who is really passionate
about cooking, cooking and talking
about cooking. stop punishing yourself
for what you ate. Guilt is not going to
do anything for you. because you can’t
uneat what you ate. self punishment is only
going to increase the stress levels
in your body and make your
absorption of food, a lot more difficult. and not in a good way. not like difficult in that
you’re not going to get fat. difficult in that it will
make you fat. yes. what guilt serves to
do is to inform you that you think that a
decision you made was wrong. so your choice is: either you make a
different decision, today, right now. or, you convince yourself that
the decision that you’ve made was not actually wrong. those are the only two
ways to get out of guilt. the more stress you
have around eating the worse your relationship
is between you and food. exercising super hard or swinging the pendulum
to eat hardly anything so as to make up
for what you did after indulging, is a
recipe for disaster. it puts your body in
a yo-yo energetically and physically which is
incredibly bad for the body. dieting and exercise can be used as a serious form of
self control and self punishment it is also self punishment to keep any problem foods
you may have in the house in the same way that it’s a problem
to keep alcohol around if you are an alcoholic. make your relationship with
food intensely personal because it is. you will have a different
relationship with food because your body will need
different foods than other people you’ll have a different
relationship with food than your partner,
than your best friend than your boss,
your coworkers anyone. and the more
intensely personal you’re willing to make
that relationship the deeper your connection
to food will be. you’ve gotta stop comparing what you’re eating to what
other people are eating. the most important
thing to decide is, what is food for you? as your consciousness increases your sensitivities to foods
will also increase. things you used
to be able to eat, you will no longer
be able to eat. you’ll have zero
tolerance for. that means that the energy
of constricting yourself is unhealthy when it comes
to trying to develop a positive relationship
with food that means, with the
exception of foods that are a strait
out no for you based on your intuitive sensitivities, I don’t want you to
prevent yourself 100% from having something because of
a mental idea that you have about it so this means, if you feel like having
french fries go ahead and
have some just make sure you do
so at the right time. time means a lot when it comes to having a
positive relationship with food obviously if you are
starving to death grabbing a whole huge
thing of french fries is not going to be very
good for your body. but, a person is actually
going to be healthier if they allow themselves to
have some french fries as opposed to, deciding that they cannot touch
that food no matter what because there is some mental idea
they have about the french fries. if someone orders a dessert, let yourself have
a spoonful. just so you can feel the ease
and flow of the energy between you
and the food. never deprive yourself
of food on purpose. fasting can be super
super healthy when it’s done so as to love the body more but, a lot of us do not
fast because of this we fast because of the horrific
relationship with food and a hyper controlling
nature towards our bodies. when we fast in this way it’s not self-loving at all and it destroys our
relationship with food and not only that. we’re putting our body
in a state of distress lack of abundance and yes actually that’s going to affect your capacity
to make money as well. but when we do this. your body gets
the message, crap, crap, crap I can’t grantee
that I’m going to be fed so I need to store it. this means eat regularly some people feel really
good when they eat small little bits throughout
the entire day some people feel good when
they eat three solid meals at standard times. other people feel good
when they eat meals but not at the
standard times that are set forth by the society
that you have been raised in. let yourself intuitively know what
the right timing is for you but allow yourself
to have food. allow food time to be
a social experience. allow it to be a way to
give and receive love food is an intensely social things it has the capacity to unite us. it brings people together. it doesn’t matter what
culture we are a part of, what continent we live on, the one thing we
actually can agree on, is good food. it can be especially beneficial to develop relationships
with people who have a similar outlook
on food in general for example: if you’re vegan and that’s what
you’ve been intuitively led to be, becoming friends with other
vegans makes meal times much more, enjoyable. than if you are
the only vegan friends with a
bunch of people whose favorite thing in
the world is Burger King Let eating be a time of
mutually enjoying something. Let it be a shared experience. Eat specifically TO feel good. and eat what MAKES
you feel good. sit with that sentence because it’s really important. if you approach
food in this way, your entire relationship with food
will have to change inevitably this means, eat something that makes
you feel full of energy. don’t eat something that
makes you feel sluggish. If you ate in that way. I can’t tell you how much ease
you would have in terms of your
relationship with food. Do not eat specifically to change the
measurement on a scale or do what you mentally know
you should or shouldn’t do. simply pay very
close attention to how foods
make you feel. start a food diary. this seems pretty
basic and whatever, but, it can revolutionize the way that you
approach foods. and it can make you aware
of all kinds of things you need to change about your
relationship with foods. keep track of your meals and even snacks
between meals for each one write
down what you ate, what the environment
you ate in was like, How the food tasted. looked, and smelled. How it made you feel, in your body, somaticly and also emotionally describe how much you
like the experience eating that meal
from one to ten and then explain why you
chose that specific rating. mealtime is a sacred
part of life. it is sacred and
it is special. and because it takes up so
much of our time in a day, and there’s no way
to get around that, we need to make it more so. this means, make any change that will
make meal time more special and more sacred
to you specifically. for example: you could put special
effort into making or having specific foods
at specific holidays. you could ensure
that mealtimes are a time when every
member of the family stops what they are doing to
have a joined experience. you could choose
to eat in bowls and cutlery that are
beautiful to you. you could drink out of cups
that are fun to drink out of. you could take your
take out food, out of the box
that it came in and eat it on
some china. you can deepen your love and
knowledge of specific ingredients you could go out of your way
to get special ingredients, you could eat
with the seasons. ask yourself: How could you make each
time you eat special. and even more enjoyable. how you feel about the
entire process around food, from growing it, or purchasing it, to making it, to eating it, will dictate the degree to
witch you are nourished by food. and also what relationship
you have with it. food is much more
about the nourishment of soul, emotions,
mind and body than it is about
really staying alive. the more pleasurable you
make this process, the better your relationship
with food will be. Have a good week. Subtitles by the Amara.org community

  1. Terrific online video! Sitting here at Y&S FOOD! we love to detect this style of content. We make Travel & Food videos too, world-wide, and also we are often searching inspirations and also good ideas. Thank You.

  2. The poison they put in food…plus years and years of brainwashing of what you should it….fruits and vegetables spices herbs….I love to cook ….made everything from scratch for my kids….but back then there wasn't so much Monsanto Bullshit either….you've made me weird about food too….lol….I love growing my own stuff….better from the ground then the store….and better from my own garden too….been sick all weekend from food poisoning….just starting to FEEL better….I can't keep eating when I'm full….I'm trying to cut out sugar and caffeine…..lemons.are great….planted an apricot tree….and a pear tree….kale is really easy to grow….tomatoes are the best from a.garden.…it all taste better from the garden then the store….stop comparing….thank you Teal💝😍

  3. I just have to say it on this video. I just saw your video about you saying a beautiful African woman will be considered ugly in the West but you’re universally attractive and NO ONE will find you unattractive. That isn’t true. I’ve never found you attractive from when I first looked at you. I don’t understand why you think that super pale skin is universally attractive and tanned skin is dirty looking that is outdated. If that were the case why are people risking their health to tan, there’s tanning salons all over. Kim Kardashian is more popular than probably any model in the world for her looks. If you and your followers believe you’re some divine beauty that’s good for you but you’re literally saying things that aren’t true.

  4. To me, food unfortunately is something I try to distract myself from. I try to fast because I want to look, be and feel thin which to me is being underweight and looking into the mirror and feeling good about being tiny, but when I let myself eat I never want to stop and when I let myself eat for a while I'll always gain weight and then feel bad about myself. All the concepts in the video make sense to me, but they sound too good to actually work cuz I can't trust it cuz I might look a way I don't want. I have no idea how to change my relationship with food, but I'll try to do some things mentioned in the video.

  5. Teal, I really appreciate how BALANCED this video is about FOOD! Your illustrations show a WIDE VARIETY of dishes. Very refreshing and rare to see a New Age Guru explain this delicate and sensitive subject in such a well-researched and masterful way! Peace.

  6. TO STATE THE OBVIOUS
    "WE CANT KNOW WHAT WE DONT KNOW"
    YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO FOOD AND EVEN
    YOUR NEED FOR FOOD CAN (AND WILL)
    CHANGE QUITE RAPIDLY IF YOU WANT IT TOO

    THE BUILDING BLOCK OF OUR CELLS ARE ATOMS
    ATOMS DO NOT CONSUME ANYTHING AND
    NEED NO EXTERNAL ENERGY SUPPLY
    SO AT SOME POINT IN OUR EVOLUTION
    WE ADDED THIS "PROGRAM OF EATING"
    TO OUR ORGANISMS OPERATING SYSTEM
    ALL WE NEED TO DO IS UNINSTALL THIS PROGRAM

    HOW CAN THIS BE DONE?
    WELL TRY FASTING FOR AS LONG AS YOU CAN
    IF YOU ARE COMPELLED, IF NOT, THEN DONT,
    OR DO, OR NOT, ITS ALL UP TO YOU, BUT
    PLEASE DONT BLAME ME IF YOU ACCIDENTALLY
    KILL YOUR SELF, OH AND DONT TAKE LIFE AND
    DEATH SO FREAKING SERIOUSLY, ITS ALL
    JUST FUN AND GAMES, OR NOT, U C
    THIS IS ALSO ALL UP TO YOU
    SO TEAL, YOU WANNA KNOW MORE
    OR DO YOU WANNA STAY WERE YOU ARE?
    IF YOU SAY YES. THEN YOU KNOW WHAT
    YOU NEED TO DO RIGHT, KILL THE PERSONA
    "TEAL THE EXPERT" … SO WHATS IT
    GONNA BE, BIG FISH SMALL POND OR
    SMALL FISH BIG POND?
    MAYBE PONDER THAT FOR A MOMENT
    TIME TO GROW OR DIE SO TO SPEAK
    OR BOTH, OR NOT, YOU GOT THE POINT

  7. Hi Teal! Would love to hear about your opinion on certain World events – like how China is slowly but surly becoming the world's new superpower and how things will change energetically if the Chinese "Dream of a Nation" will dominate over the American Dream of the Individual. Would love to hear your thoughts on bigger world events in general. Much love!

  8. Ive been waiting for this for so long. thank you so much. It would also be great, if you did a video on eating disorders specifically. I am trying to improve my relationship with food for like a year now, but. I seem to be stuck. I will try your tips <3

  9. Dear Teal, thank you so much for covering this topic! The only thing is that the sound is not the greatest 🙁

  10. LOVE THIS VIDEO TEAL! The part about attuning to the energy inherent in the food because of the focus that goes into it made my cry. You really bring such beauty into people's lives Xoxoxooxoxooxoxoxooxox love you girl

  11. So weird ? Who is this woman? Is she a reporter? Take advise from a pretty 30 something Woman? No way! Well god bless because it’s all about getting paid and this pretty little sheltered thing is getting paid I hope you’re not hurting and good men on your rise to the top. You must talk down to a lot of people? We see that a lot in the black community. Haha 🤣.

  12. My biggest problem with food now is wondering how much of it is ACTUALLY food. It’s hard to buy anything now days that is what it says it is. I don’t trust GMO’s and in my state it isn’t required to say on packages what products have GMOs. It’s hard to afford organic all the time, the packages are smaller and produce goes bad faster. I’d be curious to know how I can have a healthier relationship with food and these concerns

  13. Ok I know you know about the audio quality before this was posted, and I know it was meant to be posted this way because it’s quite revealing. Everyone has some type of resistance when it comes to hearing about how they should be be eating and that’s reflective in this video. So many layers of spiritual interpretation for this one! Thank you Teal! As always! ❤️❤️❤️

  14. "At this point in human evolution eating is a part of all of our lives". ????? Humans have always eaten, at all points in our evolution. Our primate ancestors ate. WTF are you talking about??

  15. You are a precious example of beaufiful human being to me
    One of the best
    professionnal in relation ship (one of my favorite feld if not the most)
    Even if I understand that all human beings has to work on being aware of themself
    …each parts of themself
    We can feel the precision and reliability in your work which you do throught yourself
    that's why I appreciate you And your work AND=DNA
    because transanding
    you make me remember that genuine relations exist
    Thank you Teal

  16. Idk if i need my hearing checked or its just crappy sound quality on this video. Shes loud then soft then loud the all of a sudden it cuts off the end of a word, and i can barely understand her. Too bad because I think she probably had good information

  17. The sound is just awful and im a spanish speaker ;(so it was very difficult to listen and i really what to know about this subject. I would love other vids about this. Thanks for doing this.

  18. Hello Teal. Thank you. Could you please explain a bit more in detail why people (me for example) have food as comfort, do safely reasons, eat to feel loved or because food gives me the right to relax at least for the time span I'm eating…. and so on…
    So what I really wanted to satisfy that you could clarify the motivaion or subconscious drive for abnormal r unhealthy food behaviour more. Why do we eat wrong????? Please . Thank you.

  19. So why is my cat fat? In the same note I free feed my dogs and they have never gotten fat. As I am listening I was just wondering. I create my own reality, but I do not create for others nor my animals so I do not know the 'why' of it other than the 3D reason which is my cat spends more time outside during the summer and slims down a bit and during the winter she stays in getting fat. So how what is the real reason my cat is getting fat? Hm, I need to find out more about animals and how their realities are created.

  20. Love your videos ! I just found you on YouTube yesterday, I'm glad I did because you talk about how one can improve in alot of important ways like evolving ones spirituality. I like that it's really what this world needs more of. I deeply and honestly mean what I am going to say next.
    I majorly thank you for what you do. Its People like you that makes a REAL change/difference in the world, one person at a time. What I mean by 'people like you' is people that get on YouTube to create videos and actually put their knowledge out there and teach/preach for the world to learn from so others can gain answers & succeed from your knowledge. I mean I Truly appreciate your work.

  21. Im sure this isn't the first you heard this but I couldn't help but to add that you look, talk and even act like Kristen Stuart! Your a very beautiful woman. Way prettier than her to. Just had to tell you.

  22. Yes, exactly, fasting will make your relationship with food amazingly good ❤🙂 nowadays I get home so I can cook and have sex with it 😁

  23. I have had a poor relationship with food since i was 5 years old, i have a higher amount of skipped meals than not skipped. thought this was just the way i was gonna have it

  24. I have missed Teal. I've been struggling with food in the US after returning to from months in Japan. People take so much pride in how much energy and care goes into creating the foods they eat in Japan. Good options are around every corner. In the US I have to search for good food. It IS here but it's much more intentional to find.

  25. The vibe is so strong the body csn hardly cobtain it. as l sat up prpared to eat, this video pops up all of a sudden…

  26. With half a million subscribers, you cannot afford to upload a video with such shitty sound. If you want to eventually buy countries, you better get a sound guy first.

  27. I dunno. I would love to cook and eat all day and eat bunches of sugar cakes cookies , rice and oil but every time I courageously indulge in my dream something happens and its so hard changing those beliefs. I got dermatitis in my face and now i cant eat most food groups except 4 items. or i feel i will never heal. It all sucks. Because EVERYONE i know or see (except teal) has acne or moles or are fat or disfigured and i know its for food. I allso quit smoke (but i love smoking) i quit watching horror movies to heal my mind but now i dont even like anything. Those were my 3 passions its like im in the wrong world with the wrong universal laws

  28. I don't have a good relationship with food. Almost everything I eat, results in indigestion and gas. I hope after implementing these steps I will have a good relationship with food and able to enjoy food and not worry about my indigestion. Thank you so much Teal, for this video. I am so grateful to you <3 Peace and love always

  29. This video was very good. I am a survivor of annorexia, not a problem with it now. Just gluten free as most of my family are, and i m now vegetarian becoz it just happened. I love animals too much to eat them? I have realised thru this video my FEAR of spuds. My ex would stand over my shoulder and pick on me for peeling the spuds wrong way, or wotever he could make up about spuds to pick on me for? Im terrified of potatoes, i have fear of the spud. U made me realise this? Thank you. Im gunna get over it now, its mashed spuds tomorro night. Gravy too? No ex over the shoulder. U r a good teacher Teal.

  30. I was on intermittent fasting for 2 weeks now.. And thought that it would make me spiritually open.. And every time I ate, I felt kinda guilty about not starving myself more.. And this video shows up as recommended for me… 😄 I'm surely under the care and observation of source consciousness..
    Thank you Teal. Indebted to you for my evolution.. Guess I'm still a toddler..

  31. Amazing wisdom, terrible sound! Please, Teal, re-make this video or give us a transcript! Plzzzz (A fat lady from Greece :)))

  32. My partner and I both love cooking. What I am fortunate about is that my partner is actually a farmer. He loves growing his own food. Before I met him, I never really had a close relationship with food…but now I know where garlic comes from, the fresh smell of it, how nice it looks in the soil and how empowering it is to pluck it out from the soil and know that it is truly fresh. I stil have a hard time with my weight, but it honestly made me more healthy when I started helping my bf grow food.

  33. 1. I don’t like it. I eat too much sugar…I fear food…like what’s in it.
    2. As a kid foods made me sick. That’s the only thing I think of when I think about the root of trauma around food… But maybe it was only fast food…maybe it would not have been that way if I had home made meals.
    3. Food is art…I like that! I would really like to try those preordered meals where I pay & they send all the ingredients. But with that I’d also love for someone to cook with me. Imagine I’m in a gallery at the grocery store, restaurant, or when someone cooks for me. I like that. That makes me feel like I will be more conscious of the ingredients I pick for my food, and when others make it for me, more appreciation for all the ingredients. I also feel like this will create appreciation for ALL foods I eat, “healthy” or “not.” This will change the thoughts I have about all foods which is awesome!
    4. Mindful eating. Set a time frame for how long I will spend eating each meal.
