How to Dismantle Your Emotional Triggers
with Dr Jenn Phoenix Hatfield
Trigger alert! Emotional triggers are everywhere these days. It’s human nature to lash out at the cause of a trigger, especially if it feels socially justified. But triggers are information. They tell you where you have raw emotional wounds or stories/ideas you hold about yourself or others that, when challenged, feel like your emotional survival is threatened.
In this conversation with Dr. Jenn Phoenix Hatfield, we talk about how to identify triggers, how to choose your response and several methods you can use to de-escalate in the moment, dismantle your triggers and heal the cause of raw emotional wounds. Plus, these juicy topics:
When you work through a trauma or emotional trigger you are better able to gain perspective, understanding, deeper peace and even see what responsibility you have in a relationship or situation.
Triggers are a spotlight of what to look at when you want to make changes in your life even if the situation or trigger seems to have nothing to do with the change you want to make. Often issues are connected at deep subconscious levels.
Currently many triggers are collective issues (justice, race, economics, etc) rather than personal and when you are triggered this way, looking at the story you are telling around the issue will help you find the deep emotional triggers related to them.
