Have you ever felt so triggered by something and you can’t seem to shake it? Maybe the better question is when is the last time that you felt that way?
As humans, we are consistently met with experiences that feel uncomfortable or triggering. Often, the reason that we have resistance to a particular situation or person is because it is reflecting or reminding us of something inside of ourselves that we are not in harmony with.
For example, if you watch someone else in life be walked over and constantly treated like a doormat, and you find yourself triggered, looking at your own relationship with sacrifice or boundaries could be helpful.
We are triggered by that which we cannot be with in ourselves. The way to create a shift is to snuggle up to the thing that we are trying to keep at arm’s length and explore the gift or reminder available for us.
Here is a simple practice to take that on.
Choose the word below that you feel the most resistance around:
Put your ego mind in the driver’s seat. This is the part of you that never wants anything to change. It’s the part of you that is trying to keep you really safe and avoid anything new at all costs.
Set a timer for 5-10 minutes and allow yourself to journal everything that your ego wants you to think about that word.
Now, ask your ego to sit in the back. Invite your soul to the driver’s seat. Your soul is the part of you that sees beyond circumstances and the present moment. It is the part of you that yearns for your highest good, and the highest good of all.
Set a timer for the same amount of time and journal everything that your soul wants you to know about that word.
Choose who stays in the driver’s seat for the rest of the day.
Share with us the word that you choose and anything that comes up while you work through this practice.
