Teal copied Louise Hay’s obituary from the Hay House Publishing website, tweaked a few words, inserted herself into it, omitted a few sentences, and presented it as her own “honoring” of Louise Hay’s life.

Also included, are Teal’s satanic ritual abuse story blogs that she removed due to (we suspect), being questioned about the discrepancies of her story.
