You’ve probably heard someone say, “They really triggered me.” Or maybe, “They always get triggered so easily.”  Triggers are external events or circumstances that may produce very uncomfortable emotional or psychiatric symptoms, such as anxiety, panic, discouragement, despair, or negative self-talk. Reacting to triggers is normal, but if we don’t recognize them and respond to them appropriately, they may actually cause a downward spiral, making us feel worse and worse.  Many times people don’t realize they have triggers and they don’t realize they react in a certain way to an outside stimulus that many other people don’t even notice.  Many times other people recognize what triggers someone while the triggered person is totally unaware.

So how do you control your reactions to things that trigger you?  First you have to recognize that you have a trigger, or that you get triggered.  Then you have to work on yourself to unmemorized what is hardwired in your brain.  Your triggers are learned “habits” and to change your thoughts, behaviors and your life, you have to break the “habits” and create new ones.  The book Breaking The Habit Of Being Yourself – How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One, the author, Dr. Joe Dispenza will give you the tools to do it. And you can join me on Quantum Leap Book Club on Law of Attraction Radio Network to hear what works for me. Just go to
