The triggers we hold!
We all have triggers, some we are aware of others not until some unsuspecting soul comes along and hits the vulnerable button.
Triggers are signals that wake us up to what is not healed within the deepest parts of ourselves–the sticky emotional stuff.
Just like chants change the energy up in our bodies to bring about peace and well-being, the trigger does the same.
Triggers can and will suck us into drama, old unresolved feelings, and cause a reaction.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could say, “Thank you,” but instead, at times, we feel resentful and responsive? All rooted in guilt, shame, and fear.
If we are willing to pause first, we can feel the emotional response of that trigger; maybe it wants to attack, react, and defend ourselves.
we can choose not to respond to that call and notice what is coming up and leave it alone for now.
But if we react, declare war, get fired up that is the teacher within us suggesting, “NOTICE” what you are about to do.
This is a misalignment to the self.
But at that moment, we are meeting our edge; we do not see it as the self but as the ‘a threat’ to the Ego-self.
We see it as the other doing something too us. As a result, both parties are emotionally charged, and now we have activated unconscious shit that starts to surface.
Believe this or not.
But we are doing ‘it’ to each other.
Life is a ‘Chant,’ a ‘Call and Response; a repeated rhythmic phrase, typically one shouted or sung in unison by a crowd. The crowd is, ‘the other YOU.’
“I am not what you think I am. You are what you think I am.”
Our lives are lived as Mantras all day long. We all are walking meditations of our thoughts and actions, whether we know it or not.
We are either awake or asleep, and we vacillate between them both.
What do we do?
We allow ourselves to experience all the possible feelings and thoughts that we have, without any of them defining us, but notice, when the trigger within is looking down that barrel.
Feel the judgement made, step back, take a conscious breath, experience an inward smile of knowing, and then chant, “Thank you.”
This is a huge part of Mastery, of the unconditional Love of you. And beloved Sisters and Brothers you do not become oblivious to the “Triggers”.
Simply witness the emotional charge that accompanies the spark and watch it lessen as your attitude towards you and the other changes.
You get quicker and quicker in recognizing that you have been “triggered” until they disappear because the situation no longer initiates any judgement of self.
You have dropped their unkind storyline about you, which frees the other situation, person, or thing.
You learn to see them in an instant with scarcely a waiver from remaining in alignment.
Here is an accurate measure of how you are making the Shift.
This is our mantra, this is our chant; “In Lak’ech Ala K’in – the Living Code of the Heart!”
“I am the another yourself.”
