Triggers versus Responses; WHY does understanding the difference make a difference?

I found this photo on http://ptsdperspectives.org/trauma-triggers-part-1.  More GREAT information!

Every day I learn something new. Everyday, I read something that resonates within me and I become aware of an obstacle that I get to overcome.

Today, I read this FB post from a friend and it resonated deeply within me. When I tell you that after reading, I realized I just finished eating two bags of chips (because they were on sale) while driving to do errands, downed a 44 oz diet coke, came home and enjoyed 5 mini Reese's peanut butter cups, AND finished with four pieces of white toast (Grandma Sycamore bread, the best!) slathered with butter and strawberry jam. Mind you, I ate all of this within an hour. I calculated I consumed over 2000 calories within this hour. 

What the hell did I do all that for?

Was I hungry? Not really

Did I feel good afterward? Not at all!

Why am I sharing this? Because I know I'm not alone!

This may represent so many things to different people. I first read this and thought it meant relationships.

When BLAME enters any relationship, love is never sustainable. Resentment, anger, hate, self-hate, self-loathing, lowered self-worth, etc. are what BLAME creates and generates.

In my work, I deal with triggers. I also deal with reactions. Emotions are incredible and they tell a story. If we don't like the outcome of what you're seeing in your manifested world, it's time to look within and find the triggers that create what's happening.

Think of it this way, imagine one of those musical keyboards that have lots of buttons on it. Buttons for different beats, and different rhythms. You push the button of what you want to hear. IF you don't like that sound you turn it off. Once it's turned off, no more sound, right?

Triggers are those buttons and Reactions are the sound or the story we have created to create this manifested outcome. If you don't like the outcome, turn the trigger off.

Can you see how important it is to understand the difference?

Triggers are what compels us to act. Without logic, without reason. Triggers are ignited by emotions. Like an explosion, they are self-sabotaging and there's nothing anyone can do once it goes off but clean up the aftermath.  

The emotional triggers that compelled me to eat as I did, is a non-conscious pattern that I've developed and I sabotaged my health. You add my addiction to sugar on top of that and I have a double whammy to overcome.

Are you an addict, an addict of any kind? IF Yes, then you have triggers

Are you overweight? IF Yes, then you have triggers that are stopping you from becoming healthy. Weight is NOT an indicator of health!

Are you depressed, or anxious? IF Yes, then you have triggers

Do you have an explosive temper? IF Yes, then you have triggers.

Do you have relationship issues? IF Yes, then you have triggers.

Now, how do we get rid of them ~

First, becoming aware you have triggers is the first step

Second, you choose happiness over yearning for it.

Removing triggers is done through energy work. There are many modalities and you are welcome to connect with me if you have any questions. IF it serves your highest good to work with me then we will connect.

Can you imagine how freeing it'd be if you released the shackles of emotional triggers? IF YES, then let's get some work done!
