Social media triggers the sh*t out of most of us.
The relationship photos.
The bikini shots.
The topless shots.
So often we find ourselves judging and needing to have an opinion on something.
When this happens, the most empowering thing you can do is to FULLY OWN whatever it is that you are judging in someone else.
Getting annoyed/frustrated/angry with ripped dudes posting topless shots? Address the shadowed disowned part of you that has a problem with that.
Finding yourself judging other people’s relationship shots? Address the repressed energy/emotion you are holding onto around that.
Trying to convince yourself that you don’t have a problem with it?
Well, if there wasn’t a problem, you wouldn’t have an emotional ‘charge’ toward it.
Whenever you find yourself having anything other than a ‘neutral’ response to a person, situation, event, etc., you can use it as an opportunity to explore and gain a better understanding of yourself.
Let me give you an example.
Let’s say there are two people standing next to each other.
And in exactly the same tone, I say to each of them “you’re no good.”
One person laughs it off and isn’t affected by it in the slightest.
The other person is offended and bites back.
There is an extremely good chance that person who was offended has some ‘energy’ around that (maybe they don’t think they are any good, or maybe it brings up old trauma). No matter what the situation is, there is something there.
There in itself is a little golden nugget for you to own and work through.
To become the most unstoppable, empowered, badass human being, you need to start at ‘home’ — that’s you 😉 — and right there is a beautiful sign that the ‘trigger’ is your teacher.
So this week tune in to yourself and starting becoming more aware of how you respond.
This is Blake your trigger teacher signing off.
