Triggered -It’s absolutely not any fun.
Your central nervous system has been highjacked, by a past event(s) and in that moment, part(s) of you are stuck back there, replaying those emotions, sensations, or whatever other way they present that is specific to you, your past and the age(s) it happened at.
One of my aims is to help you manage these;
Helping you find you self energy.
Landing back. Safely in the body.
Becoming safely embodied.
If any of those words or phrases got your attention, you have landed on the right page.
Difficult Early Attachment and subsequent later life wounds experiences cause us to be fragmented.
To have parts that are outwith our awareness.
That are not embodied. This is a result of those difficult experiences, that were not safe. Big T or small t trauma.
Fragmentation, or dissociation occur as part of the bodies natural defence mechanism,
it kicks in to keep us safe at the time, it protects us from that which was overwhelming or potentially dangerous.
Later on in life though, when we are safe, these parts of us that hold the trauma, start to make us aware of it and replay.
These might be subtle or not. This is known as Triggered, it also happens when our body is reminded of it, through our senses.
Suddenly we are feeling, seeing, sensing something different or difficult to hold.
In those moments, its good to remind ourselves I am enough.
