The misconception of triggers is that it’s something that the external world does to you rather than an internal opportunity to honor you and let go of harmful toxins, like a geyser releasing from built up pressure.

Your brain cannot decipher past experiences from the present, thus the person or thing that triggered you brings up a past experience that is felt as a current charge.

A trigger is: 

  • An opportunity to heal or let go of something that no longer serves you

  • A release of trapped emotions 

  • An opportunity to self reflect on how the past has affected you and how you can do it in

   a more healthy way in the future

  • A motivator 

  • An opening of a doorway 

A trigger is not: 

  • A reason to do harm 

  • Something you need to hide or be embarrassed of 

  • An identification of you 

  • All of you 

  • A loss of control

A trigger could be: 

  • A warning 

  • A reminder that something in your past needs to be resolved 

  • That you’re at the gate where you have unfinished business 

  • That you are missing information. More data needs to be gathered 

  • Guidance that you need to do something
