We are all human and I’m pretty sure that you don’t get on with everyone that you speak to or deal with. Sometimes you have a personality clash, or a difference of beliefs that you just can’t see past. Sometimes they just wind you up for not obvious reason. But this can make work or your day to day awkward if you can’t avoid them. Do they trigger you? do they make you say or do thing you wouldn’t normally? Then it’s time to tackle your triggers.
What is a trigger?
It’s an immediate emotional response that might be considered irrational – it might be to a person, to something they say or something they do or to a situation.
How to deal with your triggers.
- Be aware that you were triggered.
Recognising that you have been triggered by something or someone is half the battle. Understanding your body, how does your body respond, does your pulse race, do you feel sick, does it feel like you’ve been kicked in the gut? This stage is just about recognising that you have been triggered. There’s nothing wrong with you, don’t beat yourself up. Just acknowledge it and move on.
You may write a daily diary or just write when the need arises but writing about your feeling it a great way to organise and explore your thoughts. You don’t need to share these thoughts with anyone else, so it doesn’t matter if the spellings not right, or the handwriting isn’t great. What is important is that you are honest with yourself. Journaling your thoughts, emotions, and challenges has been shown to reduce anxiety and depression.
- Cutting chords
With everybody you interact with you create energetic cords, normally energy is free to pass but if there’s a karmic connection or an issue between two people these cords can become gnarly, blocked, or problematic. These are etheric connections and not visible to our 3rd dimensional eyes.
There are many different ways to cut cords, asking Archangel Michael, the angels, with Reiki, as ritual or meditation.
This technique is good if you still need to be around the person who triggers you – for example if you work together. Or even if you’re going out into a crowded place. I call it the pink fuzzies.
- Visualise / imagine yourself surrounded in a pink bubble or cloud (a bit like candy floss).
- Know this pink energy of fluff is made up of love energy.
- It’s like a filter and stops all negative energies getting through and sends out love energy to those around you.
So having these feelings is all part of the human experience, but they don’t need to hold you back. Acknowledging that you have them and finding a way to deal with them will free you and allow you to move on.
