Often times a dissatisfactory event occurs to show us what we need to work on the most to heal and grow as a soul. When a situation “triggers” a reaction in us, we can very easily spiral out of control with our perpetuating thoughts, which fuels our “upset” to continue in full force and longevity. It takes conscious awareness to recognize when you are reacting to a circumstance. The challenge for most is to not only realize the autopilot response, but to have the ability to stop it as soon as you notice that it has pushed your buttons in an unpleasant way.
Once you are able to stop the reaction, you have the choice and ability to look deep within yourself to see what or why you were triggered in the first place. What belief system, expectation, or emotion became challenged the most? Why? You may have to talk it out with yourself, or journal it. Sometimes we aren’t aware of why we are bothered until we dig deep within to find the root cause. We may find that our “inner child” needs nurturing or healing from an event or situation we experienced in childhood.
It’s not uncommon for most of us to carry with us feelings of rejection, abandonment, or not being “good enough.” These belief system installments were ingrained in us collectively and were passed on for thousands of years from generation to generation. These deep wounds that you are carrying may not be from this lifetime, but the culmination of many life times that you are now ready to heal and release once and for all.
How we are able to heal and release triggers is by loving ourself through it with patience and understanding. Once you have discovered the root cause, you can choose to shift your perspective. Often times it just takes our conscious awareness in order to most effectively heal and transmute. Some of the deeper wounds may be released unconsciously in the dream state or by expressing the emotion and allowing the tears to flow in order to be felt, healed, and let go of. A major misconception in today’s world is that expressing emotions is a sign of weakness and vulnerability. This is furthest from the truth. It is through our sensitivity and freedom of self-expression with emotions that allows us to become intuitive and able to connect intimately with others.
Rather than run away from what triggers or terrifies you, have the strength and courage to face it head on. These patterns will continue to show up in your life until you heal them completely. We are in a time period of transformation now where all of us are in the process of letting go of all things, situations, belief systems, and relationships that no longer resonate with our soul truth or path. The more you run “from yourself” and avoid healing, the harder the lessons will become. You are encouraged to shift to a higher perspective with the intention of self love and for the betterment of ALL.
