What Youtube People Do You Find Helpful?

Recommended Posts

I thought I'd share some youtube mentors I follow that have been very beneficial and helpful to me. I am sure there are still plenty I don't know so if you have some in particular you like please share!

I am a rather spiritual person so these youtube channels are spiritually focused with the exception of the last one.

Matt Kahn (True Divine Nature) - Right now he is my favorite mentor. He is very kind, compassionate, and you can just see in his expression he wishes to help heal the world. He is extremely advanced and evolved at a soul level. If you're looking for guidance and teachings that will pull you out of the darkness the fastest then Matt Kahn is at the top of my list. He has very comforting teachings that are easy enough to understand and powerful enough to help you evolve and see things differently.

Teal Swan - I like Teal Swan a lot too. I haven't watched a ton of her videos yet because I have been mostly immersed in Matt's but she is very inspirational too, especially considering the extremely challenging and horrifying upbringing she had as a kid which includes years of rape, torture, physical abuse, brainwashing, suicidal thoughts and more. You should read her story. It may help put yours in perspective. If she can overcome what she went through then I believe all you can overcome your challenges too!

Ralph Smart (Infinite Waters) - Ralph has a very soothing and bright presence. He has tons of videos so for anything for want to know about I am positive he has a video for it. He has so many I haven't seen but the ones I have seen I am convinced that he is knowledgeable and can be very helpful.

Hans Wilhelm - Hans takes spiritual concepts and uses a dry erase board to create drawings which help illustrate concepts in a very simple and easy to learn way. If you're not so familiar with spiritual concepts and want to learn them then he is perfect for easing you into them. 

Leo (Actualized.org) - I don't know if Leo is as spiritually advanced and evolved as Matt, Teal and Ralph but he does have a lot of videos which are long and he seems to know what he is talking about. If you feel you can't relate to the above people Leo is someone you maybe able to relate to better. He is more of no BS tell it like it is kind of guy and does a pretty thorough job of explaining life concepts.

Elliot Hulse - Elliot is very interesting. Originally his videos were based on bodybuilding and was geared more towards being a mentor for young men. He started introducing more spiritual based concepts into his videos and started building a very large following. Before I said Leo was a no BS guy well Elliot is a whole other level of no BS in your face about concepts. He can be really intense but it is helpful for seeing things from a certain perspective. He has a unique way of explaining things so you should check out at least a few of his vids, they tend not to be long.

raocow - Raocow is not a teacher. He just has a channel where he plays video games. I am a dork so yes I am into that kind of thing :P. He is a bit silly but also very unique with his commentary. Not everyone will like him but I put him here because he is a reminder to have fun and not take life so seriously. You should take some time to engage in things that bring you joy and make you laugh and he always put a smile on my face. He's made 1000's of videos. When I first found his channel I just so happened to click on this video and from then on I knew I'd want to continue watching him. Even if you don't want to subscribe to his channel I would recommend watching this video when you need a cheering up :)

I find a lot on YouTube very helpful and inspirational. I have my own cool people I like list. :P But most of all they sorta relate to my personality. Why I watch and like them to get tips and stuff. Sometimes I feel happy after watching them knowing that I'm not so alone.

I have used YouTube as a bit of an escape, and also to help me feel like I'm not so alone in this journey! 

I think you'd really enjoy Koi Fresco .

i love doing the Yoga With Adriene videos. I have been doing yoga regularly 5+ times a week with her for over a year now. I even had the opportunity to take a live class with her and it was amazing! She is spiritual and also promotes self love. Incorporating it into the yoga practice itself via affirmations. I highly recommend it.

Sorry if this is not Youtube, but I found some of the free books listed on this website about Theosophy and spirituality... useful and comforting... only if you don't mind reading:
**might get removed because we not supposed to post links, but it has no advertisements and is not selling anything... pretty basic listing of books in html.
if so, google search anandgholap dot net , or Mahatma C. W. Leadbeater, Mahatma Annie Besant
I find it comforting to realize that there is sometimes more to life, that if you follow what you really believe matters, that it is not just going to be put to waste

I like mytoecold. His channel isn't exclusively about mental illness, but he suffers from depression and he talks about it in a casual way that makes me feel less alone. He's also one of the few youtubers who can make me literally laugh out loud. Hannahvancouver is also a good mental health vlogger, but she hasn't uploaded in a few months.

Boogie2988, the man has gone through some very hard times both when he was growing up and as an adult. He still goes through some hardships that have caused him to have depression, PTSD and other health issues. What I really like about him is his ability to be so human on camera (subjective point). He isn't there presenting his points like a professional, he is talking into the camera like he is having a heart to heart talk with you.

His channel isn't focused around mental health however, it is a gaming channel. But he does talk about health issues from time to time, especially in videos that discuss things like the shootouts taking places in USA.

The other would be Helloween4545. He is a LPer who I just find his sense of comedy to tune in with mine. Plus the fact that he does LPs as a hobby and not a job helps add to the fact that he is really doing this to have fun, not for the money. He has setup various donation sources though, but he is always transparent about where that money would go to (to help get better equipment and more games for the LPs).

+1 for boogie2988. I love Depression to Expression, I find him funny and relatable, and he gives good advice. Brad Yates when I want to do tapping (EFT) - he has videos for so many situations, you're bound to find something that helps you. Andrew Solomon has some fantastic Ted Talks about depression.

I'm going to go ahead and add LittleKuriboh to the list as well. He has this wonderful series of "We're still here" that deals with depression and Martin's experiences in life with dealing with said depression.

Plus he has an awesome abridged series based on the original Yugioh anime :), even if a little dull at the start but gets better as it goes on.
