Teal Swan Bio (Wiki)
Teal was born on June 16, 1984, in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Although there is not much information about her parents’ names, the information available on her official website indicates that her parents led a hippie lifestyle at the time of her birth. According to her, from birth, she always had spiritual powers and psychic abilities and grew up as a very strange and silent
She added that her extrasensory abilities were then considered by the medical community as a form of mental illness. Her parents moved to Utah when Swam was very young, they worked as forest rangers and soon had another child – a son who, unlike Teal, was “normal”.
Life was not so easy for Teal Swan in the Utah community where her family settled. The community, which is strongly influenced by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, believed that God gave special spiritual gifts only to men, and if a girl is born with spiritual talents, it is from the devil, and because of this belief and perception, Teal was harassed and bullied as a child, as Teal says.
At the age of six, Swam says, she was pulled by the bicycle she was riding and raped by a friend of her father’s who wanted to possess the spiritual powers she had. According to Swam, the rapist was a locally respected veterinarian, a friend of her father’s who attended sectarian events in his spare time. She was already considered a strange, mentally ill, and difficult child, had she said anything about the rape, no one would have believed her or taken her seriously, so she kept silent and did not tell anyone about the abuse, not even her parents.
According to Swam, her father’s friend raped her severely and forced her to participate in some mentally and physically demanding cult rituals. He also managed to convince her that her parents were not her biological parents and that he was her real father, she believed him and formed a strange bond with him, which is called Stockholm syndrome. To separate her even further from her family, Swam’s abuser convinced her parents that she was possessed by demons and that he was the only one who could help her, and they believed him.
In the following thirteen years, according to Teal Swan, she was tortured both physically and sexually in ritualistic rituals, starved, forced to sleep with men for money, and underwent three abortions. When she turned nineteen, she escaped her abuser and took on a friend named Blake Dyer. To this day they have remained friends and support and defend each other.
The New Teal Swan
Before her escape, Teal’s mother took her on a trip to China to be examined by a traditional Chinese doctor. Teal said the doctors understood her very well and for the first time in her life, she felt accepted. The Chinese traditionalists found that her psychic abilities were in fact gifts and not signs of mental illness, as Western doctors assumed.
According to reports, she was trained by Chinese doctors to use her psychic abilities not only to help people but also to heal them. Upon her return from China, she began to rebuild her life. In 2011, she published her first book entitled The Sculptor in the Sky. She also started a YouTube channel to spread her ideas and spiritual message, and within a year her fan base grew enormously. Her other books include Shadows Before Dawn: Finding the Light of Self-Love Through Your Darkest Times, published in 2015, and The Completion Process: The Practice of Putting Yourself Back Back Together, published the following year.
Swam also spread her message through workshops, and her topics are spirituality, the law of attraction, relationships, etc. Among her influencers are Thich Nach Tah and Dalai Lama.

In 2014 she married again, this time Sarbedeep Swan, who is a British citizen of Indian origin. The marriage broke up after Sarbedeep accused Teal of not being bound to their marriage and of cheating on him. In 2016 she married a Frenchman named Ale Gicqueau.
