1. Slow Down and Quiet Your Mind – Whenever we become triggered, our thoughts begin to swirl and our brain goes into hyper drive. We must be mindful to take a pause, breathe deeply and quiet our mind so we are able to respond and not react to the source of the trigger.
2. Feel Your Anger / Pain and Heal Your Soul – In order to “get over” anything we have to move through it. We have to fully feel and express our anger, pain, fear and/or shame. Once we release the toxic energy that has been stuck in the body, we can begin to heal our soul.
3. Make Peace with Your Past and Love Authentically – The past is our shadow that follows us. We can try to run from it, numb it or make peace with it. Until we learn to love all parts of our shadow, we will not be able to be vulnerable, real and be free to love another from our authentic self.
