Nervous Breakdown (What To Do About A Mental or Emotional Breakdown) – Teal Swan –

Nervous Breakdown (What To Do About A Mental or Emotional Breakdown) – Teal Swan –

A nervous breakdown is overwhelming and painful to the grid[sp?] that you loose ability to cope with life, you just cant handle any more. It’s not really necessary for me to got in to the symptoms of a nervous breakdown because if you’re having if you’re having nervous breakdown you’ll know it. It feels like an anxiety attack that just doesn’t end, and you may feel so exhausted that even the smallest task is too difficult. You may even feel like you’ve lost touch with reality if seek your force to simple surrender and allow the feeling to take over your body like emotional version of a flu and most common causes of nervous breakdown are past traumas, permanent intimate relations like breakdown or divorces, experience deaths of loved ones, [xx] pursuits like career schooling, health problem such as injuries or chronic illness and financial problems such as debt of property. Why do I use this common causes because it is important if you are having nervous [xx] realise that it is happening for a reason. I can assure you that if you are in the middle emotional or mental breakdown. You will not be thinking you have good enough reasons to feel the way you feel, instead you will feel like you gone completely crazy cause the feeling seems to be so disproportionate to the things that you are considering thus having calls that particular sensation within your body, which you are not crazy this are happening for a reason that is why you are experiencing this sensation is just a stress crisis, most importantly you will not feel like its temporary you will feel like you have lost if for good but it is not true it is temporary. So what should we do if we are having a nervous breakdown? The first thing we have to do is to competely re-surrender to the breakdown itself. Breakdown functions like leptide, if you try to resist them or go against you are just going to get sucked under the water ten times quicker and it’s going to drown you. Your action is to let go to it and let it take you, let your body instinctively draw you towards to it’s own way of healing treat it like an emotional flu or healing crisis if you had a bad viral illness you literally couldn’t function so you have to treat the breakdown the same way intentionally the experience the worst thing you could try do during a breakdown is try to function. Now I know you’re probably thinking if you give in to a breakdown it’s never going to but in fact the opposite is true your quickest way of getting out of a breakdown is to go to totally through, it so don’t go get a psychiatric medication prescribed try to get help from others with the things that quote and quote have to be done because I want you to be really you are honest with yourself. I might be telling myself that this thing is something that has to be done when in truth I’m just choosing to do it because I think it has to be done. If you haven’t done it yet I want you to watch my video on you tube entitled how to heal the emotional body. The reason is that in that particular video I present a process which I want you to do consciously what you enables you to work your way through this painful crisis of emotions. Ironically during an emotional or a mental breakdown the body is forcing you to do that unwillingly it’s attempting to self generate a healing and a symptom of healing forces are at work during an emotional breakdown and remember these feelings are not trying to hurt you and they know something’s happening to you they’ve even stayed like a small completely paralyzed and fragrant child begging for help. Step two, the breakdown is telling you that there needs to be be a serious change to your life, so I don’t want you to be thinking that just by going through the breakdown completely you can stand back up on the other side and go right back to life is normal, that’s going to set you up for yet another nervous breakdown and also you’ve got to realize it’s happening for a reason. So do is look at your life at the areas that cause that particular breakdown and you have got to make ten differences and changes to those particular areas. Seek help from other friends are professionals. A nervous breakdown happens when stresses uncovers your deepest fears, so this is the time that is right to discover what those fears really they are and to address those fears directly when you still capable. Step 3, stop leaving for future plans. If you have any nervous breakdown, the future no longer exists, you’ve got to drag in so they are only living  five minutes to five minutes or hour to hour nothing more than that. I want you to leave according to the question, what would feel like just a little bit more relief, right here now, maybe it’s eating a bowl of mushed potatoes. maybe it’s watching a funny movie, maybe it’s laying a blanket in the forest, maybe it’s crawling under the covers, whatever it is do it and when you feel done with that ask the question again, when you begin to feel more energy and less incapacitated which happens naturally you’ll naturally be compelled to starting your life over and to extending that line so that you’re seeing into the future a bit more. So, contrary to popular belief the step does not have have to be forced, four, if you have the tendencies to have chronic nervous breakdowns, that is, they tend to happen with enough regualrities that you fear them happening again, then chances are you have a chronic stressor in your life, most often this chronic stressor is unresolved trauma from our childhood. I’m going to expose a common pattern among those who have chronic breakdowns. The common pattern is the sense of and safety. The people who have chronic breakdowns have a major major issue, in that they can’t feel safe in the world. It’s almost like the stressors they have because of the traumas they’ve experienced, have created so much stress in their lives, that living life is a little a little bit like tight rope walking or carrying an elephant on their back, of course, it’s like a hundred times more likelihood that that person is going to fall off the tight rope. On top of that we may feel unsafe we tend to use people to feel safe, many people who chronically experience nervous breakdown have this unconscious belief that there’s going to be a negative consequence to being well or being happy, so if you are chronically experiencing nervous breakdown, ask yourself this question and think way outside the box to discover potential answers. Why do you need to be weak or unhappy or in need of rescue? When that thing will happen if you’re powerful, happy, healthy and with no need of rescue put yourself in a position of being happy, and powerful, and healthy, and see if there’re any negative feelings associated with that condition. Some of us find that being well means being abandoned by others. So only by being unwell that we can guarantee connection and  support. Some of us find that by being well we feel we will be attacked, so by being unwell we send up a white mercy flag that says to others I’m the underdog have mercy on me. Don’t take this to mean that you’re faking nervous breakdowns in order to have people around, rather see that you can’t stop having break downs because of the absolutely incapacitating fear you have of abandonment or harm. Step Five, when you’re having a Nervous Breakdown something in our life is gone badly enough that it has caused us to enter into a total negative spiral, there’s really good exercise to use in this particular circumstance. You take a look at what’s going really, really badly, do you aware of it? Then you ask yourself. “What is this really bad situation cause me to know that I want., but what is the possibility on the other end of the scale? ” And then you do everything you can do to find a way to make tangible steps, or think that’s deliberately that will get you from point A where you are to point B where you want to be. In other words when you’re having a breakdown and you know why you’re having a breakdown, you’ve got to ask yourself, what’s this caused me to know that I want or what possibility exists as exaltation of these circumstances this should never be forced, if you force anything during a breakdown you’re going to nothing but add fire to fire and it’s going to just fuel the breakdown more so make sure you do this when you have enough energy. So here is an example some having an emotional breakdown because potentially, my husband walks through the door and said, I want a divorce. That sent me into a spiral. Potentially these circumstances caused you to know that you want to be valued for who you are, and to feel like you have value. To get closer to that stage, you can perhaps sit down and write a list of valuable attribute that you posses that others might find attractive. You might buy and read self esteem books, you might try out the exercises provided in those books you might get a new makeover, you might signup to a life transforming workshop or seminar. You might fill your schedule with things you know cause you to feel more confident like a hobby you’re particularlily good at or you could get on a plane go visit a friend who makes you feel valued. Six do things that make you feel safe. If you are having a nervous break down the new nervous system is in hyper alert mode, your fight or flight mechanism is so triggered that you’ve gone into a freeze state. So, what you need to do’ is to find a way to feel more safe. one of my favorite ways to do this, is to help people compile a list of the things that make them feel safe, both big things and little things. and then, what they train themselves to do when they’re feeling unsafe, is to just go to the list and pick something off of it, to go do. Maybe what makes you feel safe is the sound of a cat purr, or the smell of cinnamon, or warm towels, fresh out of the dryer, or the sound of someone’s voice. make this list as long as possible. Also I noticed that one of the things that makes people in general feel the most safe, is the sense of being cocooned. So, one of the other things you can do is to visualize yourself being cocooned in light energy or cocooned in a bud of a flower, or cocooned on some other type of thing which causes you to feel a sense of containment looking yourself high on the cover when you’re having a nervous breakdown is not a bad thing, it’s a good thing potentially even creating secret hideouts for yourself regardless of whether you are an adult is good too Seven. Do trauma release processes. When you’re having a nervous breakdown, your nervous system is literally shot. So you have to give it some distance in moving that trauma through and out. I think my favorite technique is far as this is concerned was invented by a man called David Barcelli he does TRE, trauma releasing exercises so go ahead and look him up and try those exercises out. Eight instead of slipping into the deprivation whole, give your body something to live off of. Go for a walk even if it’s just around the block, during a nervous breakdown you may loose your appetite entirely, but you need to try to sip and nibble so that to not feed the cycle of your stress hormones wrecking more havoc on your body than they already have. Do not indulge in junk foods, this will only exasperate the problem. Instead eat tiny bits of healthy foods or protein shakes, that require no preparation. Also get on the sun for 20 minutes a day, just pull a blanket outside and a chair on the ground and lay on it, vitamin D is an amazing mood stabilizer. Another thing that you definitely want to take which is really for you if you are having a mental or emotional breakdown, is a vitamin B complex. So find a really good source of that, and then consult a professional about what dosage you should take, if you are experiencing an emotional breakdown. The way that our society is set up, is ripe to cause emotional and mental breakdowns. Now I know that a lot of points which I hid in this video might leave you looking at me saying, Teal obviously does not live in the real world, why can’t she just give me some information about how o get on with life as usual? I can’t do that, because getting on with life as usual is exactly what brought you to this exact position, we need to create a life for ourselves and eventually a society that allows for things like breakdowns and illnesses, we can’t expect ourselves to function under the stress of most of our lives. The serious reality is that if we don’t allow ourselves to have a nervous breakdown if it occurs our bodies will find a way to stop us and usually does this through debilitating chronic illnesses. So my question to you would be do you want to willingly do it today and make hard changes that guarantee you a life that feels good, or do you want to wait for your body to literally force you to do it unwillingly? Another common excuse I hear is that I can’t let myself have a nervous breakdown because of the kids, I want you seriously to ask yourself this question what message am I sending through my actions to my child? Do I want them to grow up believing that they have to pull it all together no matter how they feel and get on with life? or do I want to teach them that I want them to sculpt their life according to what feels good? Children don’t need you to be perfectly strong for them all the time, what they need is a secure connection with you, they can handle the reality that people have a hard time and the people get sick in a difficult stuff happens, what they can’t handle the repercussions of you treating them like there are just one more reason that you have to keep it together. Can you feel the guilt and pain of being settled with the that you were the burden or one more item of pressure from your parent, the parents that handle these breakdowns the best are the ones that reassure their child out of the security of the connection and of the unconditional nature of their love, thus allowing themselves to have a breakdown. Letting yourself intentionally melt into the break down is the fastest way through the breakdown. I can promise you, you will not be the same person on the other side of this breakdown and there will only ever be an improvement on the other side of this breakdown. So repeat after me, it’s okay to not be okay. Have a good week.



  • Life After Narc

    My narcissist ex-husband used to punish me every time I was hospitalized so it didn't give me extra attention. Then after my divorce my therapist ignored my phone calls after I was hospitalized so I was never "rewarded" for having a breakdown but always punished further and abandoned more.

  • Ponch

    I suffered a breakdown from a worry over a bad choice i made. I lost sleep the my appetite and weight then my mind. The initial worry that concerned me was replaced by a divorce earlier in my life and stayed at the surface for 8 months. I tooks meds for 5 months then quit them cause i didnt think they were helpin me enough. After this intensely stressful experience i havent been the same. Its been 5 years and have constant fear panic anxiety everyday. My feelings are exaggerated. Even small stressors are over the top. I had bloodwork and found im low on testosterone and believe that is a major factor to why i feel this way. Im trying to get "TRT" hoping this can balance me out cause ive heard low T can cause anxiety depression etc. Fingers crossed.

  • Wyatt Cerri

    Starting January 2017 I used to have a serious one every 2 months on average. Fortunately my last one before now was in early January 2018 and it's September 2018 now. Every day I was thankful that my extreme anxiety didn't ever turn into another breakdown. Every time I feel like I'll never be normal again but I just gotta keep my head up because I did the last few times.

    I had two major breakdowns after dealing with stress caused by a surgery and being anxious for along time. Should I get medical help before getting back to my daily life tasks like going to college, etc?

  • Wyatt Cerri

    I'm having my second breakdown in a month and I think it might be because I tried too hard to fight through it. I always watch this video when I'm having one, this is about my seventh since April 2017. Hopefully in time I'll be able to get better and keep then from being so prevalent, I'm seeing a counselor for the first time in a few days.

    i want to breakdown your pussy


    I started trusting your line “ surrender youself “ let the shit passes through your each cell let the fear or low freq pass through you …if you are not in a position to do anything don’t do jus don’t do❤️🤗😀


    I notice in myself when I was analysing myself,,that y this happened to me …what it is ….m i gonna die now…coz I was unable to walk or breath properly….I thought I have destroyed my life by destroying my physical well being as well as mental.
    Meanwhile I was analysing it took whole yr m still searching ….
    Only thing here I want to say ..people who are real whose emotions are real …who attached deeply or expect purely ..genuine being hit breakdown coz they put their heart in everything and not mind ..also they think others are also like them …and this coz and such relatable things cause breakdown
    I have now presssumed that no one !!simply no one howsoever close they maybe can be that trustable even the most trustworthy can come out mean
    So just don’t expect…also do not give up on ur genuine side be good but do not expect or attached to what others do for you …
    If they do good to u okay if not then also okay nothing can disturb you

  • David Moses


    IMAGINE… if you wish, that each key area of your life, and the Universe, is covered by a great flexible dome. Now fill each imaginary dome with a mysterious, invisible, Spiritual Energy. Define this Spiritual Energy as: "The Application of Human Energy/ Positive Actions, that Creates benificial changes in the Universe for Individuals and Humanity."

    The Domes will be able to expand or contract, depending on the volume of the Spiritual Energy they contain. The Spiritual Energy in the Domes will be used up in the course of living and would need to be replaced.
    Imagine also… that at birth, and during the formative part of your life, that the dome that surrounds YOU, is mainly filled and maintained by your Family, but also may include help from your: Community, Country and others, with Spiritual Energy.  Explain that they create this Spiritual Energy for YOU and other areas or 'Gifts'  with their Positive Actions for the 'Gift' areas
    Tell them that… if your Family's dome is full of this Spiritual Energy, and maintained, they will be capable of teaching you to accept the element of RESPONSIBILITY with Positive Actions, as an important and necessary part of living your life.

    Imagine also… that as you grow and develop, you learn that there are tasks for you to do as part of YOU, your Family and Community. And that… as you become more aware, you accept greater tasks and Responsibilities. You  also have learned to expect REWARDS of Happiness and Satifaction for your Positive Actions!

    Also include the negative side… that if fresh supplies of Spiritual Energy are not created and provided by You and others through Positive Actions, the domes will deflate and collapse upon you and others in your Family and even your Community. Also explain… that people would experience this collapse in their actual life, as sadness, anger, boredom, depression, dissatisfaction, physical and mental illness and failure. Explain that there is no negative spiritual energy, only the lack of input of Positive Actions. (See DVD for more on this subject.)

    Explain that… taking Responsibility for all the Gift areas with Positive Actions, where possible and practical,  would the only way to avoid this collapse and that Positive Actions would also be the main source of the Reward of HAPPINESS for Human Beings!

    This imaginary post is part of a real 53 minute DVD called: THE 10 GIFTS OF THE CREATOR.

    They don't understand . My parents . I've told them. I've asked for help. And it's just like a 3 day fever for them . As soon as i start showing even one sign of getting better they go back to doing whatever they did to trigger me. Its a never ending cycle . Idk how long i can handle this. I am literally smoking in front of them . They don't say anything to me. I am blacking out drinking they would just quietly clean up after me. I need help. I am screaming for help. And they just… Silently spectating me. I can't understand. I don't understand. I am helpless. Its like i can't scream any louder. I just wanna die now

  • Sonicz Forever

    I know what my trigger is warning this is a sad comment. Im anorexic and keep having extremely depressing eating and living experiences. I had no time to eat dinner for 5 days in a row. There was twenty people in a line outside the takeaway and I am not able to manage time because I am that weak people refuse to help me and I am slowly fading away. The team put me on a diet that me very fat and almost obese my bone mass went down and I am now losing strength even after weight loss. The service sucks I have rang for help and I am ignored. Food is and was my number one misery. The world is loud and terrifying as I am technically not eating enough for my activity. Its hard to know as I gain on low numbers of calories so its trial and error constant failing to live is frustrating. was once lean and able to enjoy food and other people. I broke down because I have no way to manage my life. Keep home clean or filter out noise as I am too tired to manage any area I am still trying. Was almost in tears as I couldn't remember to even defrost food I needed to eat. I am starving most days by default. Thinking of getting food delivered and a different support I am so afraid of being disappointed eating my throat swells shut at the sight of people enjoying food. There are also the negative effects of starvation almost blind. I hope tomorrow will be different as I cannot sustain this/

  • sarepaar

    I love that I found the more gentle approach to these kid of things through Teal and some other spiritual teachers. Contrary to what people around me say I disn't need to 'just do it'. I needed to not do it for a while. I needed to cry, I needed listen to myself, I needed someone to listen to me and how bad I was feeling (that moment still hasn't come unfortunately), maybe I even needed to isolate myself for a while. I will be convinced of the power of the gentle approach for the rest of my life! Thank you Teal for being one of the people who helped me to understand this. I have a lot more trust in life now

When I was in high school I read the book I'm okay you're okay. I have been putting so much pressure on myself just to be okay never feeling like I actually was.

  • John Mack

    This is a hard one. My consciousness is swelling and my thoughts are hurting. My emotions surge and I can’t even get help. I have to rely on my own self. How could I explain consciousness to a psychologist? I tried and they have no clue. That’s why Bundy makes fun of psychiatrists. I try letting it go, but can’t. I know I am frequently near a breakdown. I tried medication, a blanket with no warmth. I hate emotions and consciousness. I frequently want to quit! I have no idea what I am supposed to do. I know I am supposed to deal with this but when will it end? I try living moments to moments. I search for simple survival with my kitty cats. I intellectually know this won’t last forever. I know my stresses and feel helpless with them. I suffer from suicidal thoughts and emotions but I know doing so would severely damage my soul. I know I have to just live with it. I isolate myself because I get frustrated and frequently lash out. I don’t know what to do. I know what I feel and think and it hurts . I think I am supposed to accept this for empathy. I don’t write lists. I used to paint ceramics but that is not my state. I think my pain will help me relieve others pain. I try laying down, with my kitty’s, and feel my emotions and allow the swelling of my consciousness just be. I frequently can’t think because of the intellectual tension and swelling. My health is good. I know this is for a purpose and I am developing my soul. I understand goddess is there and has her design. I don’t know her design and I feel helpless. I am glad I don’t have kids or a wife. I relate to people with insane thoughts about reality. I try never to make rash actions when I am like this. I feel intense emotions and my heart and head hurts but I know faith is key. I think this mess is a design and I have to simply survive.

  • Danielle Dawn

    My life right now is probably the best it's ever been. I've started doing affirmations and since I have been doing this I have been having trouble sleeping, having nightmares, feeling ridiculously angry and incapacitated. I guess settling into the idea that my partner is trustworthy, that I'm financially secure, that I'm physically healthy and living in a beautiful community are throwing my sense of self into crisis. Have been letting myself call into work. But still resisting it to a degree. Worry it will last forever.

    Me and my girlfriend broke up 2 years ago after a 5 year relationship, im mature, so when she wanted to let me go i let her leave because that is what she wanted, so i just told myself if shes happy then thats fine, so i just put my feelings away, but i always had hope that she might come back, then she got engaged… and that hit me rellly hard, it broke me… and year later shes married… and i just cant comr to terms with all this, i have alot of feelings for her and knowing shes happy in her new life truely gives me happiness but i just cant come to terms with that person shes happy with not being me, and then financal and family issues add to that, i keep everything inside me, i dont speak to people about my feelings and problems, people around me dont have time for that, they only have their problems… its wierd, im a kind of person that helps others and am there when they need me, emotionally and physically, but when i need physical help, i just figure out a way myself without asking anyone, and emotionally i just keep everything within, and before it had been working for me, i been through it without help and this time its just too much… its abit extra, im still holding on and i have jsut realised that im heading towards a breakdown and just realising that is helping, im started to not live in the past and future but in the moment and try to take life on a daily baises, trying to recover, bounce back stronger, i must say it is difficult with no one by your side, maybe people are but its just… i guess i dont ask or whatever it is… im weak

  • Seeker

    This video is brilliant, consolidates all. ? How does one cope with constant attacks from abusive liars causing crashing and crushing state of exhaustion. When one tries to set boundaries etc just adds fuel to the fire and makes matters worse. Sadly, in my experience most people just kick when you are already down. I am now quite happy to be a recluse as I no longer need or want such people in my life. However, getting toxic people out of ones life is easier said than done when in a constant fight, flight, freeze threatening situation. Some also want you to break as it makes them feel better and are just basically evil.

    I had my first nervous breakdown at 14 years old. I still have them. Iv'e been in the hospital 8 times in the past 3 months. I have PTSD from my past experiences..I was 18 years old when I met my sweet husband who was a sailor in the Iranian Navy. We married 2 months later. Little did I know he was the devil himself. He talked so highly of Persia…this was back in 1973, I went. I was a sheltered child…his family treated me so good. But when I got so sick from the food then I got pregnant, I had to come back to the States. Well he was so angered he had to stay behind because he was still in the Navy. When he joined me one month before our baby was born…it was good at first. After my daughter was born then it all started… He would beat me so bad strangle me, always told me he was going to take my baby back ti Iran … Then he would tell me he was going to kill me and my daughter she was 1 year old. He would pick me up and throw me against the wall, while I was laying there he would jump on me and bite me. After 4 years of torture and him keeping me locked in the house, having to look at the ground when a man walks by… And GOD don't make him see BLACK as he would say.. I ran away with my daughter one day while he was at work. I went to my moms work place. She saved my life. Can't write any more. To upsetting. I raised my beautiful, daughter to be strong and fearless.🌹

    I feel like I am beyond breakdown… There is literally no reason why I have them, in fact there is literally nothing in my life that could cause me stress. I just didn't get a call from my so for a day and I spiral immediately again. No therapist understands and they all just kick me out of mental hospitals bc I am "unmotivated" bc I can't tell them what's wrong

    How does she always look like a movie star? She just looks like she’s a Greek goddess sorry it’s not relevant but she is distracting! Maybe she should get a person who isn’t a 10 to do this, like she gives them the words and they speak she’s hard not to look at and go well that’s where all the pretty in the world went. Not just that, she is intelligent and beautiful. But anyway I and a couple friends find her advice useful. Constantly. But seriously it’s great that it’s not coming from someone who looks Amy Schumer and instead someone who makes Megan Fox look like a sea lion,and she does.

    Some notes from the video: Surrender to the nervous break down, give in to it, watch video on how to heal the emotional body, breakdown means there needs to be a serious change to your life, look at areas that caused the breakdown, stressons uncover your deepest fears, stop living for future plans, live 5 minutes or hour to hour, what would feel like just a a little bit more relief right at this moment, watch out for a chronic stressor, common pattern for breakdown is they can't feel safe in the world, belief there might be , why do you need to be weak or unhappy or in need of rescue? What bad thing will happen if you are happy, powerful, healthy and with no need of rescue?Perhaps by being well, you'll be abandoned by others, a subconscious fear. So by being unwell we can guarantee connections and support. There's an absolutely incapacitating fear of abandonment and unsafety in a breakdown. Exercise, look at what is really really going badly so you're aware of it, what has this really bad situation caused me to know what I really want?What's the possibility on the other end of the scale? What are things you can do to feel really safe?Make a list of both big and little things. Visualize yourself being cocooned in light. David Barcelli, Trauma release exercises on youtube. Children don't need you to be perfectly strong all the time, what they need from you is a secure connection from you. Letting your self intentionally melt into the breakdown is the fastest way through the breakdown. It's OK to not be OK.

    I can't have a break down. If I cant work we wont have a place to live. We'll be on the streets. I can't do it. 🙁

    I had a nervous breakdown over a month ago and i'm still stuck. I cant read or even understand what people are saying the majority of the time. Everything is a struggle.

    This forced 40 hr work week to survive and employees that can't get time off work is essentially killing us more than I thought. Emotional days need to exist everywhere

    What do I do if I just have emotional flashbacks/ flareups of very complex and heavy trauma? So I am not having a complete break down, but I feel like my body is drawn, like a magnet towards going through these certain traumatic emotions. But I feel I cant take it and will just dissociate. It's very exhausting fighting this "magnet", I want to give in, but I dont want to end up in a break down.

    I know when a nervous breakdown is coming, I have no energy to poop, and can barely cook or clean, I just have to lay on my back in silence in a quiet room for a week, to gain some energy, then make a plan going forward, that plan never works I end up back in that quiet room, coming up with another plan. im exhausted typing this.

    Why do I want to do unsafe things when I'm having a breakdown?

  • Disabler

    I would be cool with having a mental breakdown if it wasn't for the fact that everyone sees you as a victim, which is worse than the breakdown itself..
