Understanding Triggers

Lately my friends and I have been talking about triggers and specifically memories that continue popping up out of nowhere. It’s not a mystery to me why they are igniting now since hindsight is 20/20 in 2020. But it sure makes for some emotional turmoil until we realize that we’re being triggered.

Triggered by definition: experiencing a strong emotional reaction of fear, shock, anger, or worry, etc. especially because you are made to remember something bad that has happened in the past.

So what do you do when you’re triggered by a memory or situation that is in your present realm? How do you deal with the duality of the present situation and the additional trigger all while trying to keep yourself centered?

My advice would be to deal with the present situation in a grounded way when you can. In other words, isolate the present circumstance and deal with it. Then, after you’ve got that one under control, let’s work on the trigger.

Working on the trigger requires you to remember the past, feel the emotions of the event and see with an observer’s view all of the components in that time in your life. It helps to dig deeper into the feelings with another person who can excavate the underlying issues that haven’t completely healed. Because it’s hard to do that alone. That’s how a Companion and Mentor (me!) can be a valuable part of the healing process!

Being that I’m not integrated into the present reality nor the past events, I am able to pick up on the reoccurring themes and emotions. With your permission, we can explore how or why those feelings are so deeply embedded and work on disbursing the triggers that hold them. Thus you can set yourself free, one baby step at a time!

My background allows me to pull from varied personal human experiences which have been a huge part of my own earth school lessons. What I have found by working with friends, family and clients is that there is a relief in awareness and healing ensues when one is ready to do the inner work.

Everyday we make millions of choices when you think about it. Learning how to heal is a choice we make for ourselves. It’s not selfish to want to heal. It’s actually life-changing to make a Joyful Change!

Contact me when you’re ready. I’m here for you! Let’s release those triggers and heal. You deserve to learn about yourself and feel good about who you are!
