When Chris and I lived in San Francisco, we had a friend who had been raised in a very strict and controlling religious family.

Her family and extended family were big and everyone was within that religion. Her cousins, aunties, and siblings were her main social network.

Until one day, she chose to break free from it.

She just couldn’t take it any longer. She couldn’t ignore it. She felt like the control within that family and the religious context was crushing her spirit.

It was an extremely difficult decision because it also meant she was breaking away from them. All of these people she’d grown up with.

Can you imagine severing almost every single close relationship you have, in a single choice?

Once she’d left that family dynamic, though, any time she felt she perceived a whiff of control in relationships, she’d shut down, or become extremely defensive or angry.

Even if it was a person she’d just met. Even if they didn’t necessarily have the intention of trying to control her.

Not only was she sensitive to attempts to control her, she had actually become overly sensitive—it had become a really deep-rooted trigger for her.

But of course, it’s not just Chris’s and my old friend who can get like this. We can all find ourselves getting triggered by certain people, or words, or behaviors, often without even knowing why.

And man, can it be hard to regain emotional balance once that happens!

In this episode, we’re talking about how to know when you’re being triggered, why it’s happening, and most importantly, what to do about it.

The Group Frequency Calibration® (GFC) associated with this episode will help you gain clarity around being triggered and what is causing it so you can be aware of it and start to release the distortion patterns causing it.

Without clearing these distortion patterns what we’re triggered by and how much it affects us just gets worse.

If you like these podcasts, it’d be incredibly helpful and much appreciated if you could leave a review and let other people know why you do!

Many people have been noticing that they’re more easily triggered these days. Has this been happening to you, too?

Meaning you’re extra sensitive and possibly overreactive (more than you’d like to admit, dangit!) to what’s being said, what people are doing, or even just how they’re being? It can really feel like people are doing things TO you.

Even when you’re totally aware that it’s happening and you know that you don’t want to be in that overreactive state, it can be so hard to stop being so triggered.

In this episode, we talk about what being triggered is, why it happens, how to be less reactive, and even better, how to use getting triggered as a way to give you more momentum.
