A negative trigger can occur when your brain perceives that someone is not honoring what make you special or taps into a previous hurt. These triggers can impact you on the emotional, mental or physical level. Your mission is to recognize, locate and disable negative triggers.
Picture this: You are moving through your day; it appears without a care or concern. All of a sudden someone makes an innocent statement and you feel afraid and/or angry. You are off balanced and you respond out of character. Your negative trigger has been activated. These “Triggers” are the result of past hurt, pain or grief causing you to react and/or respond from that perspective. No longer in the present you are applying past feelings to a current situation. These feelings are so real and raw to you that you quickly rationalize your behavior so it makes sense. The innocent recipient of your reaction or response can feel attacked, misunderstood, hurt or baffled by your behavior. They can also have “Triggers” that are activated and an irrational cycle begins that could lead to no resolution or conclusion.
These past offences impact your life. Left unchecked they can cost you relationships, opportunities and the realization of dreams. If this happens and you recognize it, simply pause, and breathe, inhaling deeply and exhaling all the negative energy, emotions and feelings. This will enable you to center yourself and move more consciously and deliberate. Having trouble identifying your triggers the following list will help.
