Over the years it has been determined that the key to freedom is letting go and that there is no better way to let go than to forgive. There is no better example of this axiom than the one present in the story of Teal Scott. Teal Scott is a woman she wasn’t supposed to be. However, she is here to show others the way. She is here to show others the way out of helplessness and the way out of pain. She made that journey herself, it was a journey where revenge and anger were road signs but not answers. Now, after years of torture inflicted on her by a mad man and the cults she belonged to, she has no desire to see her abusers brought to justice or have the iron hammer of justice fall on her. heads of her For her, they are just victims of loveless situations, broken families and a cycle of separation that exists far beyond the limits of this story that she is reading now. That day, when I first saw her around the corner, I was instantly struck by the fact that this woman was beautiful enough to be a super model. She moved gracefully with an impending and ethereal trusted heir across the room. She exchanged a smile and an unusually firm handshake with me and then proceeded with unwavering eye contact to wait for her to start asking questions.
Teal was born in 1984 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In the early years of her life, it was immediately apparent that Ella Teal had been born with unusual talents that set her apart from other children. These talents were not ones that Teal’s parents understood. But in the years to come, they would discover that Teal was demonstrating abilities such as clairvoyance, clairvoyance, clairaudience, the ability to manipulate electromagnetic fields, and the ability to communicate with thought forms. As she grew older, unlike many children born with extrasensory talents, her gifts did not disappear.
When Teal was still a little girl, her parents (both wild forest rangers) took a job in Utah’s Wasatch-Cache National Forest, unaware at the time of the place’s intensely religious climate. It was a sparsely populated area that at the time was over 95% Mormon. Because of this, news of her unusual abilities spread very quickly and she was not only frowned upon, but she was also feared by many in the community. Like many children who grew up as a religious minority, Teal was ostracized as a child and the degree of difficulty in her life could have stopped at that, except that it was due to Teal’s extrasensory and misunderstood talents that she captured the full attention of Teal. a loose acquaintance. of the family. This man, whom Teal calls “Mr. X” for reasons of anonymity, was a sociopath who also had dissociative identity disorder. Mr. X had many personalities, one of which belonged to a local Christian cult and another attended satanic rituals.
Mr. X managed to infiltrate Teal’s family and position himself between Teal and her parents as her mentor. He managed to convince Teal that, among other things, he was in fact his real father. He became her mentor to such an extent that her family relied on him for weekend trips, after-school activities, and horseback riding guidance. It was him they turned to about what to do with her abilities, and later… in her teens, they trusted him to take her in when she became so mentally unstable (due to the abuse) that the family didn’t know what to do with her. never more. The whole time they did not realize that he was creating the very condition that he claimed to be helping. He would get her out of bed at night until he finally trained her to come of her own free will and also managed to get her out of school on many occasions. It was because of this man that Teal was inducted as a child (unbeknownst to his parents) into these local cults by Mr. X. For thirteen years, Teal was routinely tortured and ritually programmed by this man and the members of the cults to the ones he belonged to. a.
Over the course of those thirteen years, she was physically and sexually tortured in religious rituals, forced to participate in sacrifices, repeatedly raped, and starved to death. She was forced to undergo 3 abortions (all fathered by Mr. X himself, who was in his sixties at the time) he performed them himself because her job allowed not only the meager instruments to do so, but also the knowledge. She was photographed for sadomasochistic pornography, sold for money to men for sex outside of motels and open-air gas station restrooms, kept tied to bases, and kept in a hole in the ground in Mr. X’s backyard. She was exposed repeatedly to electro-shock programs, forced to undergo solitary confinement torture and left tied up overnight in lava caves in southern Idaho. Teal was also forced to engage in bestiality and necrophilia and was drugged by Mr. X with ketamine, Dormator, xylazine, opiates, and speed (all of which he had unlimited access to due to his career). Mr. X repeatedly chased her through the desert “playing” tracking games in which he would hunt her down and subject her to any one of a list of horrible punishments if she was caught and also used her as a decoy for other children who ended up getting hurt as well. .
Teal was able to escape Mr. X and the cults he belonged to when she was 19 years old. But the real heart of this story lies in the fact that Teal has become healthy and found joy to such an extent that he has completely forgiven his abusers.
Since his escape, he has assumed the title of “The Spiritual Catalyst” and has embarked on a mission as a contemporary spiritual guide to remind people of the united and energetic nature of this universe and teach them how to find happiness in it even in the midst of the most extreme circumstances.
During my interview with Teal, we briefly talked about the fact that happiness seems to be a very elusive quality and that those who achieve it are seen as unintelligent or, conversely, enlightened. I asked him if he feels that he has reached a place where he has achieved unshakable happiness and thus a state of enlightenment. She gave a faint smile at this, tilted her head and said, “No. One thing that makes people unable to find happiness is that they think it’s a permanent state you have to achieve or some place you have to get to.” when the truth is that happiness, like enlightenment, is either in the moment or not in the moment. It is a constant process in each moment to focus your subsequent thoughts and actions toward happiness, just as it is a process in each moment to focus your subsequent thoughts and actions. actions to be in line with enlightenment. I have my days when I’m not very good at this, and my days when I am.” In his long manner of speaking, he went on to say, “No one is meant to come here in this life and remain in perfection, or live up to something that judges us. We are meant to come here in life to find happiness. evolution is an inevitable by-product of following the path to happiness. Not a single person here, however much you may expect of them, remains in perfection. Perfection is an illusion. Expecting perfection from yourself or from others is be resistant to where you are or where someone else is and as long as you resist what is, you cannot move forward from what is.
For most people, the first reaction to hearing this story is complete shock and then the sudden need for justice. The question of how we can reduce the ever-increasing levels of crime and violence is one that affects our society today. The usual answer to this question from politicians and the media is that we need to be even tougher on crime. It’s a response that stems from a deep-seated belief that fighting crime harder will eventually set this country right. But Teal strongly disagrees. She has maintained the position that no one needs to be brought to justice after what was done to them.
However, Teal’s abuse became a matter of state. Due to a confidentiality clause that was waived over certain details of Teal’s abuse, her psychologist at the time presented her with the option that she voluntarily tell the authorities what happened or she would have to contact them with or without Teal’s consent with the details of the abuse. So, in 2005 she told the local authorities the horrendous story of her past. It turned into an investigation, which went cold after quite some time when the district attorney decided that the state could not provide enough substantial physical evidence to win a case. When I asked Teal for her opinion on this, she said, “Most women who run away from situations like mine never tell. I did say so, but even the physical evidence I had wasn’t enough given the years that had passed the last incident that happened. And I’m glad for that in hindsight.” I, like most people, was surprised by this response and asked why she was glad that a man like Mr. X could still be out in public and not in jail. She inched forward and said, “There’s a negative vehicle of need and there’s a positive vehicle of need. It’s our choice which vehicle to get into and drive our own lives. You could say… I don’t want torture.” and abusers in this world… then we must punish all those who torture, and torture the torturer so to speak. they want compassion… and show those same actors of violence a compassion that perhaps they have never been given before. Happy people who feel loved don’t hurt other people.”
It is Teal’s belief that the dehumanizing environment of jails and prisons does not rehabilitate criminals, it creates even worse criminals. She says that it is impossible to punish someone to make them feel good, that punishment for crime is like fighting fire with fire, so it is time for the justice system and the prison environment to change. She believes that the way to eliminate abuse and criminal behavior is to change society at its roots and change the way we treat those who commit acts of violence. Teal went on to say, “We as a society strongly believe in victimhood and therefore try to control others by creating laws. And we enforce those laws with harsh punishments for all those who disobey them. Laws do not they are control; they are merely the physical illusion of control. They do not work the way they are intended to work, and they go against the universal truth of freedom. They will fail and fail. Your crime rates will continue to rise if crime is addressed as it is treated today”.
As our meeting drew to a close, I was in awe of this woman who stands today in a light of forgiveness and mercy after living a life of torture and pain. She demonstrates an attitude that many who have been abused have been unable to achieve. She comes from a background that gives her the credibility to say that a person can achieve happiness, health and success no matter what she has done in her life and no matter what has been done to her. This revolutionary space is where we find Teal Scott. And if she takes his message seriously, this revolutionary space is where any of us can meet.
