How To Heal Emotional Triggers In 4 Easy Steps! 1920 1080 Christina Lopes

Learn what emotional triggers are from a spiritual perspective, where they come from, and how to heal them quickly in 4 easy steps.

There’s nothing more annoying than being in a great mood only for it to be spoiled by a rude, insensitive comment or an intrusive negative thought. Quite frankly, mood killers suck!

But what if I told you that these emotional triggers are actually vital warning signs?

We all know that experiencing emotional triggers can:

  • Make us feel like crap
  • Kill our vibe
  • Hijack our emotions
  • Tick us off…quickly!

One moment, we’re laughing and enjoying ourselves, minding our own business, or relaxing and the next we’re angry, depressed, or tearing up.

So what causes this dramatic emotional shift within us and how can we prevent them from happening in the future?

Well, first, we have to fully examine what emotional triggers are. 

The mainstream definition of an emotional trigger: Anything that causes a rapid and intense emotional reaction.

Spiritual and alchemy definition of an emotional trigger: A protection mechanism that blocks the entry of a wound.

So, the trigger is really warding you off from an open, unhealed wound. 

Say what, now? I know that’s not how it feels while you’re experiencing it, but it’s true. Triggers are your mind’s way of distracting you from accessing deeper, unresolved trauma and emotions.

As a result, triggers commonly involve distracting behaviors such as:

  • Emotional eating
  • Emotional outbursts
  • Alcoholism
  • Excessive gaming
  • Other addictions

So, it’s time to better understand your emotional triggers and deal with those unhealed wounds, which are the root of the issue. 

Have you ever heard the term, the bigger they are, the harder they fall? Well, the bigger the wound, the more energy it’s siphoning from you, and the bigger the emotional triggers associated with them. This is all rooted in childhood trauma, adult trauma, and unresolved emotional baggage. Understanding the energy aspect of a trigger and the wound it protects is crucial for you to be able to heal the triggers later on.

The solution is to stop dodging emotional triggers at all costs. This act of avoidance is just a protective mechanism from the protective mechanism! How wild does that sound?

These protective methods are designed to deter us from facing the root of our problems head-on. It may be difficult and painful, but it’s is the only way we can begin healing from our past. 

Another unrealistic way of thinking is expecting the outside world to change so we’re no longer triggered. 

This isn’t a practical or healthy way to live our lives. Who wants to lead a life of avoiding triggers like emotional landmines

It’s up to us to realize when it’s time to initiate the healing process in order to experience a better quality of life. For this to happen, we must reframe how we view our emotional triggers to better understand how to address our emotional wounds.

    • Thank you so much Christina and team 💞.
      I was peaceful and nice watching the video…and just then something happened in my surrounding that triggered me…😂and the video kept playing…..ask “what is the unhealed wound back there”
      I will be sitting down now to process stuff.
      Thanks allot once again for your guidance 🙏

    • I find your videos tremendously helpful because of the way you present everything in step form, and give concrete “how to’s”. This really works for me and I thank you so very much!!

    • I said W. O. W Out loud soooo many times! Mental & heart triggers. I realized the partner that recently didn’t choose me, betrayed me & abandoned me TWICE in 1 yr was a decoy from ALL of my past partnerships I was still holding energy for. I can see now and THIS is my breakthrough!
      Thank you

    • Another great video Christina. I get so emotionally triggered with resistance from my children when I’m trying to improve their health and or education. So I have printed off your workbook (soooo handy as I used to write down many points, thank you)and will play with your suggestions over the coming weeks and hoping to see a dramatic change. This has been happening for far too long. Much love to you and your team, Lena

    • I know the wounds. I was sexually abused for 6 years from age 4 to 10 years. I was also a tainted blood activist 25 years ago. Today this whole vaccination propaganda ignoring all of the past history of pharmaceutical companies and government, is triggering my PTSD regarding the many cover ups and lies we uncovered. Nothing has changed and in the next few years we will bear witness to a horrific outcome, just like the victims of tainted blood. The whole process and the partners involved are highly suspect. I have no one to work through this with me. Someone who knows and understands why I go into rages in the face of stupid, ignorant responses. But I will not shut up, I learned how to do that years ago. Please help me I am desperate!

      “Emotional triggers are my best friends”!! 😀

      I am working with a wound of poverty and being “lower class”— this is a big one. I’ve been aware of it for some time now, have begun to understand it, but haven’t been able to address/heal it in any significant way. I just began recalling my energy from this wound, and I can already feel it weakening; my power coming back to ME. This is incredible. I can’t wait to go deeper.

      Thank you, Christina + team!

      Hi Christina & crew,

      Great video! I kept it in my inbox for a while, feeling I had to wait watching it. Today, my wife wanted to go for a walk and I did’nt. I went into the garden just to relax in a chair, basking in the sun. My wife then decided to go for a bike ride. i said to her: maybe Kasper (our sun) can join you. But she didn’t react. After a while, I started to feel strange/bad. Why did I mention Kasper? Am I feeling guilty?
      I decided to watch this video. I really resonated with the ‘blocking/shutting down’ response. While watching the video, the wound revealed itself: I am afraid to just be myself. Whenever I am doing something innocent (like resting) that goes against what my wife would like to do, I used to consent. But not anymore lately. Now that I want to be happy in my own way, the trigger that lay dormant for a long time, starts to popup more and more. And I know the cause of the wound. It is indeed from childhood. I was just playing quitely at home when something bad happened (not going into details here). I think from then on, I associated ‘innocent behaviour on my own’ with ‘bad’. I realise now that It is easy to see where the problem is: if someone is angry at or displeased with me when I am doing something innocent, I simply have to ask myself the question: am I unhappy or are they? If I am happy, then I know the problem is in the other party. So now I realise that back then, my mother had an issue (which indeed she had). She did’nt react to me because of my behaviour, but because of her internal issues. I feel so relieved now. I have known these things for a while, but I didn’t seem to connect the dots. I guess I needed this video to make this final click.

      Thank you so much for this breakthrough video!

    • Thanks for the tips. I especially suffer from overwhelming fits of anger. I’m afraid I’ll hurt someone. Can really turn into a dragon. Now I understand that behind that anger lies the wound. Wish me luck I’m gonna slay dragons. ha ha ha. Hope for relief.

    • Aloha Christina-

      Mahalo for explaining what the heck emotional triggers are and the 4 steps to recognize the trigger which is blocking the entry to the wound that which needs the healing! What an eye opener…

      Up until now all I knew was that I didn’t feel like myself after a traumatic event a few years back and Ive been on the inner healing journey recently to figure out how to heal…and ask why am I’m being triggered? 1 too many painful experiences & a traumatic experience that changed my entire life and brought me to my breaking point.

      I’m ready to acknowledge each and every wound as it presents itself and take my chi back and enjoy life…Triggers my best friend? I never thought I would say that…LOL… but I get your trigger-point…Aloha Wounds & Trigger Points be gone….Mahalo!…Christina
