Are Triggers in our bodies delivering hidden messages to us?

"Emotions are not just a part of us, they're us. They're what makes us human."

- BrenΓ© Brown


As human beings, we experience a wide range of emotions every day. Sometimes these emotions can be overwhelming and cause us to react in ways that are not in our best interest. We might lash out at someone we care about or make a decision that we later regret. But what if our emotions are trying to tell us something? What if our triggers are delivering hidden messages to us? πŸ€”

As a highly sensitive person, I used to feel triggered quite often. I thought that was just how we were supposed to live our lives - we get mad or angry and we push our feelings down and continue. Little did I know that this was hurting my body. I wasn't listening or paying attention to my body's wisdom, letting me know what bothered me. I was suppressing my nervous system by suppressing any negative emotions. However, I've now learned to allow any emotion to flow through my body like the wind flowing through the leaves of a treeπŸŒΏπŸ’­. I don't identify with the negativity of the trigger anymore. I take it as my body informing me about something important, my body is communicating with me.❀️

Our triggers are not random, and they are not meaningless. They are there to give us information about ourselves, our past experiences, and our current situations. When we ignore our triggers or suppress them, we are ignoring valuable information that could help us understand ourselves better and improve our lives. 🚦

Here are 6 action steps to help you receive the wisdom of your triggers:

1. Notice when you feel triggered and what specific situations trigger you.

2. Identify the emotions that come up when you are triggered.

3. Take a few deep breaths and ask yourself, "What is this trigger trying to tell me?"

4. Listen to your body's response and pay attention to any physical sensations that arise.

5. Consider seeking the help of a therapist or coach to explore your triggers further.

6. Practice self-compassion and be gentle with yourself as you explore your triggers and the messages they contain. 🌟❀️

By paying attention to our triggers and the emotions they bring up, we can unlock a profound journey of self-discovery and personal growth. Each trigger acts as a signpost, pointing us towards aspects of ourselves that might be hidden or unresolvedπŸ€”. As we embrace the discomfort that triggers evoke, we embark on a path of introspection that leads us to a deeper understanding of our inner landscape. This process not only allows us to process past difficulties but also empowers us to be more present and intentional in our lives.🌎✨

As we delve into the roots of our triggers, we untangle the web of past experiences, beliefs, and conditioning that have influenced our emotional responses. This exploration grants us the opportunity to heal wounds, release pent-up emotions, and create space for genuine transformation. The journey isn't always easy, but the revelations that surface can be incredibly liberating.

As a trauma release coach, I understand the importance of emotional stability and the wisdom that our triggers can provide. If you're struggling with triggers and negative emotions, I'm here to help. Together, we can explore the messages that your body is sending you and work towards a more fulfilling life. πŸ€—πŸ’ͺ

Conclusion 🌼

Our triggers are not just negative experiences to be suppressed or ignored. They are messages from our body that provide valuable information about ourselves and our lives. By paying attention to our triggers, identifying the emotions they bring up, and practicing self-compassion, we can use this information to make positive changes in our lives. Seeking the help of a therapist or coach can also be beneficial in exploring triggers further. Remember, your emotions are a part of what makes you human, and learning to master them can lead to inner peace and emotional stability.
