Being triggered isn’t always a bad thing

No really I’m not kidding – being triggered can be a good thing. It’s the not reacting part that takes a bit of work. The urge to wrap your hands round someones throat can be overwhelming but you CAN move past it.

So why am I bringing this up?

In all honesty I’ve been triggered the past full week with all sorts of headf**kery and programmed bs. Due to having taken part in a webinar that really wasn’t the best thing for me in hindsight. The first part was great and semi-useful but the second half……

Lets just say it was a REALLY hard sell. Since then I’ve had tonnes of emails which I been ignoring but the programming went in.

I’ve been implementing all the new stuff for 2018 that I’ve been asked to sort out and these little mind worms have been undermining my progress.

“You can’t do this without help”………
“You don’t have formal training”………
“Do you need extra insurance and more outlays???”…………
“Are you really ready for this? Should you sign up and just do the course???”…….

You can see the pattern.

I finally twigged yesterday just what was going on. I wasn’t overly happy but rather than kick off I’ve gone in , removed it, blasted my energy system and started again.

Hit the re-set button

I had to go back to the original stage where I was asked to bring something forwards. What was it that resonated there and then? By going back to that I’ve re-set everything around it. To the point that I booked the first stage in this morning with no fuss, no drama and zero overthinking.

It was the overthinking that was driving me (and my poor friend who was getting my stupid panicked questions) absolutely demented. I was over thinking EVERY SINGLE DETAIL. It’s not a big thing. Its new for me but sure as hell not a big scary thing that my head was insisting it was.

It’s just a bit of planning. But because I’d let that programming in it was doing all the shouting, fretting and “look at it all I might miss something” bullshit thats been going on for me for almost a week.

Annoying – yes
Frustrating – yes
Going any further? Hell no, its been dealt with.

Like I said the trick is not reacting when you finally hear the penny drop. You really really want to react …..trust me its a human instinct to inflict what you’ve had back on the person who did it you you. But we know this achieves absolutely nothing in the long run so we stop, trace it back, release and dissolve back to source, reboot out energy and start again.

Intent not murder!

It doesn’t have to be a big complicated process it really can be made simple as its the intent you have that’s important.

But most important of all is if you do have a desire to react DON’T do it on social media. That old thing of once seen cannot be unseen.

Once triggered you can be a tad volatile

I saw something today that triggered me again. Now I know, or at least I hope, it wasn’t aimed at me and to be honest even if it was it doesn’t matter. What matters is the nerve it touched and the realisation that folk have absolutely no idea what others are going through at any given time.

To cast judgement based on one partial side of the story is pretty short sighted. There’s ALWAYS more going on than you can ever see visible.

Just remember to treat others how you would like to be treated yourself. That’s especially true on social media.

So if you get triggered get triggered. Just put in the work afterwards to get rid of whatever has come up for you to focus on for a while.
