Did you know we ALL have triggers and automatic Self Defense Mechanisms?! 🤨
Some stay silent and suffer through their triggers (FREEZE), some runaway (FLIGHT), others react and say whatever comes out of their mouths not remembering half of it later (FIGHT), or throw things and punch walls, or abuse their significant other, or even worse are those that take a weapon and do damage beyond repair. 🔪🩸😔
A trigger is a trigger, we ALL have them and we each can CHOOSE to either react in the moment OR recognize them and walk away until we cool down to talk again when connected to our Higher Self.
We also all have Self Defense Mechanisms and as I teach my clients, we each have an automatic one as soon as we’re triggered in the moment and then a secondary one that takes over after the event over a longer period until we “snap” out of it! 🏼
We have certain traumatic experiences at some point in our life, most likely childhood, and with that traumatic event, the brain often ingrains sensory stimuli into memory so when a person encounters the same stimuli in another context, they associate the triggers with the trauma. 🤪
In some cases, a sensory trigger can cause an emotional reaction before a person realizes why they are upset, which can be disrupted through awareness and practice before explosion mode. 💣
What’s worse with such limiting beliefs and triggers, we attract various scenarios into our life that bring about the same trigger until we CHOOSE to use that trigger to guide us and HEAL that layer, viewing it as a GIFT. 💝
Your TRIGGERS reveal what needs HEALing! 🧠❤️🩹💫
For instance, feelings of being unheard or “my voice doesn’t matter” may create more instances and attract people that will have you feel such feelings…
By running away from such experiences will also make no difference because unless you HEAL that trigger, you will continue to attract circumstances and people reliving the same pattern. 🤷🏻♀️
Triggers may not go away 100% either, since we are human and have memories, AND we can at least recognize the patterns, disrupt them before we REACT, and HEAL that layer! 🥰
The key is to have awareness and take responsibility for each trigger you have rather than blame others or try to change THEM. ❤️🩹
Remember, the person that is triggering you ALSO has triggers possibly similar to yours or the exact opposite making it more difficult to understand.
About 7 years ago I began discovering MANY limiting beliefs and triggers of my own and began to recognize how I would react so defensively even if someone was joking! 🙈
That doesn’t mean I don’t have other triggers…
I’m constantly working on myself to HEAL the next layer…
A couple new layers have surfaced recently and I’m becoming more aware of them, disrupting my reaction since my self defense mechanism is FIGHT, rather than FLIGHT or FREEZE, and then using 𝗣𝗦𝗬𝗖𝗛-𝗞® to reprogram my subconscious mind! 🙃
It’s also one of the first exercises I have my clients work on, discovering their own Self Defense Mechanism. 🥊🏃🏻♀️🧊
Triggers and patterns take away our peace of mind and bring us to a lower vibe, so it’s crucial to discover yours!
What’s YOUR defense mechanism:
This awareness alone can open up your eyes to patterns in your life! 🤩
