Three Steps To Dealing With Triggers

If something is triggering you, one it’s not your fault. Being looped back into trauma can feel like failure, but healing isn’t linear. A single moment doesn’t erase all the others of progress. Don’t blame yourself, you’re doing the best you can!

Secondly, identify what it is that’s setting you off and remove, or confront it. Sometimes it’s an epiphany that you deal with head on. Other times it’s something that needs to be removed, like a person. My karmic is my trigger, conjuring up abuse from this life and our past ones. Not interacting with him, giving him any energy, has decreased my PTSD episodes enormously.

Lastly, ask for help. This is hard for me to do, but once I did, the energy shifted and I was able to take action. Acknowledging you need others feels like a fault, it’s not. Sometimes you’re too weak, or just don’t have the means, you need a support system. Humans are tribal beings, not islands, that’s how we surpassed all other homo species. Teamwork. Be it therapy, or any other means (writing, meditation, reiki etc…), getting help is healthy. Remember pride is what made the devil the devil. How do you handle trauma triggers?

Your Body Stores Your Trauma

Trauma, negativity, all of it gets stored in your physical and energetic (chakras, aura, soul) body. Pay attention to where you store the most tension, for me it’s my neck, shoulders, lower back and hamstrings. I also get very locked up in my sacral and root chakra. The PTSD episodes and flashbacks aren’t as often as they were since removing my ex.

Yin yoga is a good way to release pent up negativity. This was my introduction to the practice I can’t believe how open, flexible, free my body is since getting into it. I’ll warn you Boho Beautiful is really intense, practice makes perfect though, the more you do it, the better you get. What’s stored in your body? Why? How do you release it? Via: Insight.Corner

Healing Slowly Is Okay

As long as you heal. I used to carry around so much trauma; I was miserable and empty, consuming so much to fill the void. Destroyed and dragged to the depths of my own inner hell, it wasn’t easy, but damn it was worth it. Heal, it’s the best gift you could ever give yourself, no matter how long it takes. Are there traumas or inner demons you don’t want to face? Pick something small and start there. You can do it.
